The service was very slow, and some of the food came out cold. I will say that other than the temperature issue, the food tasted fairly good.The other reviews I've seen that reference a sense of disorganization among the waitstaff definitely hit the mark. The service wasn't awful, but definitely sub-par for what is available in the area. I would go here if I were desperate, but there are so many better options in such close proximity.
We dined at Alizee during Restaurant Week in Jan 2018. When we arrived, we had to ask for the Rest Week menus, at which point they informed us they were out of filet (which is also a normal item on their menu). We were bummed since that was the entree we were looking forward to, but made alternate selections of stuffed cod and pork. The appetizers were standard and tasty, although the crab bisque was a bit salty for my liking. After finishing both the salad and appetizer (which were served at the same time), we had to wait at least another 15-20 minutes, at which point the server apologized for the entrees taking long. Mind you - there were three other tables seated in the entire restaurant, so it wasn’t exactly busy. A few minutes later, she apologized again and said the cod was ready and the pork just took a little bit longer to make and would be ready soon. My husband said she could bring my dish out awhile since it was ready, since we were planning to share a bit anyways. My entree came out - and I ate as slowly as possible, and was still finished and plate cleared before his pork entree was served. It was no less than 45-50 minutes from when we ordered, which seems to be excessive. The food was really tasty - but timing of food and service was lacking. I had to ask for refills of water and iced tea several times. It was a good value for Restaurant Week, but we likely won’t be back again anytime soon.
The worst service I have ever had! I would never go back!
There was no host/hostess to seat anyone and it took over seven minutes for someone to even acknowledge that we were waiting to be seated. I was actually online to make quick reservations somewhere else when we were finally seated. The waitstaff was running around, completely unorganized and the chef was out bussing tables. There may have only been 12 tables, and 5 waitstaff, not including the chef on the floor. Once seated our waiter was amazing, his service was excellent and timely. However, aside for the first course, a crab bisque, all the food came out cold. Which I don't understand.
I would not go back, nor recommend Alizee to anyone. I do feel bad for the completely disorganized waitstaff who are in dire need of good leadership and management.
The place was just ok. We were there for brunch. They tried hard but it was just ok.
Great spot for book club to meet....quiet with good food served promptly. Plus was we ate in front of fireplace on a chilly night. Lots of on street parking. No one was there on a Wednesday night.
I was pleased to find alizée as a dining option in my hotel. The lump crab was very tasty. The staff was stretched rather thin that night but were attentive nonetheless.
Despite mixed reviews, decided to try during restaurant week as a featured menu item seemed too good to resist: soft shell crabs with stoneground grits with corn and scallion with a hot honey drizzle. Sigh. The crabs were good, but the rest was a big disappointment to my palate and to my digestive system. The grits were so studded with overcooked, dry chewy corn, cheese, pepper and scallion that they had none of the creamy appeal of grits and managed to be devoid of flavor. I was not expecting the "hot honey drizzle" to be a mix of honey and tabasco, and clearly inferior vegetable oils were used throughout.
The atmosphere and the service were great, however, for the price, the food was not good at all, very poor quality. The "cheese plate" consisted of cheese cubes, similar to what you'd see on a party platter from a grocery store. The steak was very fatty, full of gristle. The broccoli was chewy.
The food was fantastic!!! I will definitely return and I recommend it to anyone.
