    Good. They don't have a kids menu but made plain noodles. They forgot to make one order. They also included the tip (party size) but also didn't comp anything despite the fact that one meal didn't come until almost everyone else was done. I would have tipped regardless, but it felt odd to not even have that choice given the service.

    We had a larger group (party of 11) and couldn’t have been more pleased with our experience. Cocktails and food were great, service was excellent and the space was just right for us.

    The service here was the worst service we have ever experienced at restaurant in 10 years. We waited 40 minutes for a waiter to come to take our drink orders. Never an apology. never an acknowledgement of how long we waited. Once the drink order was taken it took an additional 20minutes to get two glasses of wine. Not even a mixed drink -- just TWO GLASSES of wine! When we spoke up about how long it was taking we were reprimanded by our waiter who said they were short staffed and that we needed to be patient. Again, never an apology or any understanding of how poor the service was on their part. We were floored by the attitude. The whole experience could have./would have been so much different except the righteous of the staff was disgusting. Despite all that - the food was disappointing. The chickpea burger was gross. The other food was just ok. I would NEVER go back and I would NEVER recommend.

    The perfect neighborhood spot. And my go-to. Delicious comfort food menu and lively staff. The Mac-n-cheese and mushroom pasta were exactly what friends who just touched down from Atlanta needed for dinner.

    The brussel sprouts are always a great place to start in this great neighborhood restaurant. We had a great night after a long day. We started with the brussel sprouts and lovely squash soup. Ended the meal with a fried chicken sandwich and chickpea burger. We enjoyed all of the great flavors and left happy and full.

    Friendly service but only so-so food. Brussels sprouts vigorously deep fried almost to the point of fragmentation but under-seasoned. Fried chicken was crisp and moist, but Mac and cheese was kinda bland. Servers were all very nice, service was fast.

    Despite our long standing reservation the hostess wanted us to sit outside on a chilly evening, which we refused. She would not let us sit in one of the several open booths inside, claiming they were reserved. We had to wait for a high bar table to be available and while waiting, 3 people came in without a reservation and were immediately seated in one of the inside booths. The food was good and the servers were very friendly and good. A mixed experience!

    Booked a table for 8.30, didn’t realize they closed at 9pm. We were seated upstairs - initially quick service but in the end felt forgotten about and a bit forced out while the staff packed up for the night - which I get of course as we all want to get home after work! The food and portions were excellent - just felt a bit let down overall due to the packing up. Maybe close tables off to 8pm or 8.15pm - so that patrons don’t feel that pressure to leave. Otherwise, I’d go back - bit earlier.

    Location was perfect for a Masonic pre-show dinner. Convenient parking right next door, although be prepared to hike up to hard hills to the concert venue. Menu choices were good for both foodies and normal palates. Service was excellent and not too expensive. Will go again.

    I ordered mussels and a steak salad, rare. The mussels were probably the best I have ever had. The steak was rare and tasty. The manhattans were excellent and "made to order" since I don't like them sweet despite not having Jack Daniels available (my personal preference). It may be due to my age - I am over 70 - but the noise only took away from the experience. It would be one thing if there were a rhythm to it but it only sounded like noise to me. Bottom line, the food was delicious and the service was excellent but ya gotta like a lot of noise while you eat. For me, I prefer conversation.

    Delicious variety of fresh American food! Close by to Cheaper than Therapy Comedy Club. Service was good! Very nice people. We were almost 15 minutes late to our 11 person reservation but they were very accommodating and sat us right away. They have dining upstairs and we had the room to ourselves which was a nice unexpected surprise. Reasonably priced as well. Win, win, win!

    Excellent service especially from Rachel who is also a mixologist especial! Mango spicy margarita was yummy! Food was great - Brussels sprouts amazing. Mussels were good but not a huge fan of the tomato based sauce (I’m a more traditional kind of guy). Very welcoming place — would def go back again!

    We were looking for a restaurant with outdoor seating where we could eat before the early start to the play at the Curran Theater. Aliment was the perfect solution - it is just a quick 5-10minute walk downhill to the theater. We were thrilled to find the comprehensive menu, excellent food, and outstanding service. The outdoor seating area is very comfortable and spacious. It is helpful that reservations are available, and that dinner service begins early enough to allow for a leisurely meal before a performance. We will definitely return to this restaurant!

    We had an awful experience here last night. We had tickets for the Masonic so made a reservation for 5. We travelled from San Jose. We needed an outdoor table as one of my friends is immunocompromised and needed to sit outside due to covid risk. I called the restaurant several days before the booking to request an outdoor table and also included the request in the online booking. When we arrived we were told outdoor tables were not guaranteed despite a booking and that we would have to wait for one to free up. I asked if we could split the group - 2 outside and 3 inside - and was told no. So utterly disappointing. After much stress we finally found another restaurant down the street who happily sat us outside, provided us with wonderful service and ensured we had our food in time so we could make our show. I’ll never return to Aliment because of this poor customer service - no apology, no empathy and no willingness to rectify the situation shown by the manager.
