Tried this place as we we’re attending an event at the Masonic. We ordered the fried chicken with greens and macaroni and cheese. Also ordered the mussels. Both were so freakin’good.. Great service and delicious cocktails. Highly recommend.

Cute, airy spot! Service was quick and friendly! We came for dinner, but it looked like they had some good happy hour deals. Food good, but not great. It felt a bit overpriced. The highlight was the staff who were very helpful and friendly.

Food was tasty enough, but large portions, kinda heavy. The kids liked it but it wasn't really what I was hoping for in coming to the city. Liked the location, ambience and service were good.

We have eaten here 3 times and will go again. Food and drinks are excellent. Ailment has a fun vibe. Jose, the bartender is the best. He is welcoming, friendly and a mix master.

The food and service was awesome - but the table was at an upstairs loft and was so hot! If I go back I do not want to sit upstairs.

We were there during happy hour and they refused to offer us happy hour prices because we sat at a a table.
In fact my friend got there early and they told her not sit at the bar and she couldn’t get happy hour prices since we had dinner reservations. Ridiculous. Food was ok. Menu not large enough.

SUCH A PERFECT DINING EXPERIENCE! We had such a great time and everybody that worked there was friendly and funny especially our waiter Stephan. Our food was AMAZING- the wings were mouthwatering, the mac and cheese heavenly, the rib eye cooked to perfection! The panna cotta had a dark cherry coulis that was dynamite. It's a must have. We will be back for sure next month. Do yourself a big favor and try this place now while you can still get a table.

The ambiance is casual, yet refined. The minimalist cool is a far cry from blunt pretentiousness. Instead, there's a gradual ease into intimacy that's perfect for a date night (Valentine's Day, in our case); although, there are large booths available for groups of six. We sat in a backroom upstairs passed the loft. The servers were friendly and present without being imposing. The menu offered solid American staples, fun cocktails and a decent wine selection. The meal was a generous portion, and well-prepared with fresh ingredients. I definitely recommend Aliment.

We had a good experience at Aliment and were happy to find another dining option in the area. We went there for dinner on Valentine's Day.The brussel sprouts and caprese salad were tasty. My husband enjoyed the lamb shank - it fell off the bone. I had the salmon which was well prepared although I wasn't a fan of pairing it with tzatziki sauce. Our server was fun, helpful and attentive most of the evening until he got very busy; then he was hard to catch. All in all, we enjoyed our evening and would go back.

First we had hors d’oeuvres and drinks at the bar. The bartender was wonderful! Friendly, knowledgeable, good sense of humor. Then we went to a booth and had dinner. The weather was great. I love everything about the place except that it is too loud for me but I’ll go back because the food is good and it’s a nice atmosphere. Friendly.

They messed up my order three times. I only sent it back twice because I was so embarrassed. I got a lettuce wrapped burger with a side salad. They didn’t put chipotle aioli sauce or the bacon jam because I didn’t get a bun. They brought out a $20 patty of meat with cheese on a bed of lettuce. They didn’t have lettuce wraps. I ordered medium and it was medium rare borderline rare. Multiple parts of the burger were squishy pink that I couldn’t even eat. Side salad was an extremely basic bed of arugula but still had an up charge. This was my first time eating there and it was disappointing.

Service was incredibly slow. We ordered our drinks 15 min after sitting and our wine didn't come for another 30 min. A dish ran out and they didn't notify us till 40 minutes later and wouldn't comp or accommodate another dish for the same price. In 2 hours we all only got one cocktail and a little wine because the service was so slow. Food was average, not worth the wait or service.

We had a nice evening here: the food was very good, the service was energetic and friendly, the prices by San Francisco standards were quite reasonable, and the portion sizes were generous. Of the six items ordered at our table, I would say five were excellent and one (the mac and cheese) was still good. The dinner salad was huge and delicious, almost big enough for two. The spicy wings, roast chicken, mussels, and salmon were all very well prepared and tasty. The only drawback to our evening was we were seated upstairs and there was a very loud table nearby in a small seating area. But we would definitely return here for another dinner.

During the very hectic JP Morgan Healthcare conference in San Francisco, we had a very relaxing and excellent meal at Aliment. The service was outstanding as was the food. Would definitely recommend it as a nice, quiet and high quality restaurant with a distinctive menu.

We had a 9pm reservation on NYE but we weren’t seated until 9:30pm, which was fine give the occasion. However, half way through our mediocre meal (the food was cold, we had to beg for silverware, we were given 1 glass of water with no refill) the bar and kitchen closed, with no warning, and we were unable to keep ordering food or drinks. Completely understand that the staff wanted to get out of there to celebrate! BUT, a heads up would have been nice so that we could have ordered any last minute things before they closed. Additionally, our waitress started out super friendly, but all of a sudden was in a rush to leave and we weren’t given utensils and when we asked she rolled her eyes like we were putting her out. Don’t get me started on the water :( no refills and no bar drinks. Needless to say, we will never be coming back.

My wife and I were in town for just one night. We saw this place from across the street from our hotel in the afternoon before it opened. It just looked like it would be a good place to eat from the outside. The restaurant was nearly booked up when we looked on OpenTable. Fortunately, we were lucky to get one of the last reservations later in the evening. We sat upstairs (loft), which was very cool. The entire place was hopping when we got inside. This was a fun place to be dining. My wife had the Mac & Cheese and I had the burger. Both were good portions and tasted good. I thought the Mac & Cheese was a little salty, but this could be a personal preference. Our waitress (Rachael ?sp) was great and fun. We would recommend eating here. My wife and I will be stopping in again when we return to San Fran. Enjoy !!

We were seated upstairs for a 6:00 dinner with reservations & it was hot & stuffy up there.
They had fans on the floor but that didn’t help.
We each had an entree, a cocktail, & a glass of wine & it was over $100
Too much$$!

it started off well, the waitress was attentive and gave us info about the menu which was very limited. we both decided on the salmon. my husband asked for the sauce on the side and we both asked for it to be well done. The food came very quickly -- almost too quickly -- not enough time to sit and enjoy our cocktails, but the sauce was not on the side (he was going to live with that) but when we cut into the salmon, it was medium at best so had to send it all back. The food was okay but nothing special. After our meals were delivered the second time, our waitress lost interest in us. Nothing special - there are so many other restaurants to chose from, I wouldn't suggest it.
