Fried chicken was really, really good. Truffle fries were light on the truffle and a little damp. Drinks were imaginative and very well made / strong. Service was attentive but not intrusive.

We went late on a Saturday night (9:15 res) and turns out we didn't need a reservation. The service and food were GREAT! I'd go back in a flash. Rated down one on value just because it is rather pricey, but it could be that I am just not used to big city prices.

Noah was our server and he did a fantastic job, helping us decide various meal choices. After our cocktail, we started with the very tasty brussel sprouts, then we each chose the delicious mushroom fettuccini with chicken. Closed with the ricotta donuts with chocolate & caramel dipping sauce…unique flavors to both, and moist yummy donuts. Was. happy with our choices but also saw other dishes that looked fantastic as well We were outside in the parklet, so the noise was low enough to be able to have a casual conversation. Going inside to use the restroom, I noticed the sound level and it’s LOUD, especially upstairs, so was glad we were outside. Overall, it was a lovely dinner and we enjoyed it all!

The food was very good and well prepared. Our server was not up to speed on the bar options, brands of alcohol, types of drinks, but he seemed very interested to learn about them. I got the wrong cocktail, but drank it anyway because it was good.

Eat at Aliment. You will be doing yourself and your friends/family a favour by making this reservation. We were visiting from NY and Texas and hadn't seen each other for several years. Aliment was the perfect environment for a reunion over good food and drinks in a beautiful setting. While the food is outstanding (get the Brussels sprouts, the lamb, the chicken, and anything else they tell you to try), we were all blown away by the hospitality. Our waiter is part of the family who owns the restaurant. Kind, warm, engaging, and with the personality of someone you want to be best friends with. Aliment leaves nothing to be desired, from food to presentation to engagement with the service team. If you're looking for a great dining experience to remind you why eating in a restaurant is better than DoorDash, then you will want to go here.

Back to Aliment after 18 months away. Aliment never disappoints. Small outdoor space carved out of the Bush St. parking lane so there is considerable traffic noise. Good food and friendly, attentive service more than make up for it.

Drinks were great. Ordered the ribeye and it tasted like a diner steak. The vegetables we got on the side were burnt to a crisp and basically inedible. Everyone else at the table seemed to enjoy their food. Overall great place for drinks and socializing but there are much better places to eat in the city at this price point.

We had a reservation for 5:30 PM but got there early and discovered "Happy Hour" which was fabulous. We made a full dinner out of the delicious bites - yummy tacos, to die for Brussels sprouts, chickpea "meat balls". It's well worth getting there at 5:00 PM!

They were not ready for us despite our reservation. Sat us upstairs, where it was hot, music was too loud, and there was no wi-if or cell service to access the QR code that could showcase the menu. We waited to be sat, to an undressed table, and then waited another 15 minutes before we were given menus or asked for drink orders. Our waiter was kind, the food was above average, but that didn’t eclipse the feeling that we were an afterthought and and the complete oversight our son’s 18th birthday which we traveled into the city to celebrate.

From the moment we walked in, we felt welcomed. We had reservations and were seated immediately. We were in the upstairs loft and it was great! Seating was spaced nicely for distancing. Our server was excellent!! He was attentive and offered great suggestions. We started with the Brussels sprouts. Delicious! The salmon dinner was excellent as well. We will visit again next time in SF.

Honestly, Would not go again.

Not worth the "hype". Its more of a bar then a restaurant.
