So...despite having a reservation, neither Alobar nor Open Table gave me the heads up that this place had been CLOSED for non-payment of taxes! This was my birthday brunch and when I showed up 15 min early I was greeted by a sign on the door. I was dumbfounded. Now, it wasn't a big deal b/c there are a dozen other great places to eat in this area and we just went a block away to another place that luckily had no reservation requirements and had tables available. But still! I should have been alerted.

Delicious Cajun-inflected food. Chef Reagan and his guys did an amazing job on all the dishes, from the octopus to the duck to the pizzette, etc. Service was stellar. Thanks for a great night!

Alobar provides great food but service can be spotty especially if you happen to attend a late brunch. The kitchen closes around 4pm for dinner at 5pm. It would have been good to get that heads up. Overall, great food and ambience.

Booked for Mother's Day evening, after reading all the glowing reviews. Disappointed. Food fair at best; nothing exceptional. Service slow and clumsy: couple of times waiter touched the top of my glass while moving the plates, almost dipped his sleeve into my coffee. Not coming back

Delicious, perfectly portioned, creative meals. The maple bacon popcorn is unbeatable! Cocktails are excellent, as is the whiskey selection. Great for a hang at the bar, night with friends, or dinner date.

Noise rating is because there was live music and it was very loud. (But did get used to it.) Food very tasty. But service was lame: well-meaning and nice but amateur –staff just not trained well. Manager's response to my constructive comments (which he solicited) was defensive, with lame excuses and no goodwill gesture, and just proof that management doesn't "get it." (To be clear: no arrogance or anything overtly negative. Just lacking in standards and awareness.) Would recommend restaurant, as I said, but with caveats. It's a nabe place for me, so I wish them well and will try to support. But I wouldn't recommend anyone travel to it.

We were eager to try this restaurant, as the pictures of the food on the website looked amazing. The food was quite good, if less than amazing. The bacon maple popcorn appetizer was the only thing we all agreed was horrible. Otherwise, our only complaint was the disco music!!! Hardly conducive to a quiet dinner with friends! Music is part of the whole experience!

A regular spot for us; equally good for couples or larger groups. Menu changes which ensures we can go regularly and we always have a great meal. We took a friend for her first meal here and she particular loved the duck leg confit. Our favourite time is Thursday evenings when a live jazz band plays.

Everything was absolutely awful from the moment we walked in. This place used to be great about 4 or 5 years ago, they must have changed owners since because the last 2 times we've dined here it's been such a waste. I came in last Sunday for brunch with My husband, my sister and her fiancé. We walked in and it wreaked of bad cleaning product. Our waiter didn't come to our table until 20 minutes after we sat down. Once our order was placed it was continued disappointment....they brought bread for the table, cold, hard bread with cold, hard butter. We ordered monkey bread to start, which was served with an ice cold burbon glaze. Then the final disappointment, my main course. I ordered breakfast tacos that were served on the worst excuse for a corn tortilla. The toritilla was so thick and so dry it just broke in half when I folded my taco. The pork sausage looked like bits of cut up hot dogs (my dog eats better meat) and finally the ice cold scrambled eggs were top with BBQ sauce.....BBQ sauce on a breakfast taco?? Needless to say, I had one bite and the rest went to waste. I will NEVER attempt this restaurant again...should just be closed down and replaced. Stop trying.

Used be good. Now they have less menu.
I don't recommend go there after 7:30 PM. They tend to close very early.
I reserved 7:30PM on long weekend Sunday (the day after was Holiday).
I thought I have long time for relaxing time for my friend's farewell dinner. But they seemed getting ready to close around 8:45PM. I asked waitress "what time are you closing?" she said "8pm"...
Little later, she told me that "this is the last call, OK?" when I was still eating main dish.
I asked if I could oder dessert, then she told me their kitchen was already closed.
I guess they wanted close very early

I regret I made a reservation for my friend's farewell dinner. My friend request was having relaxing quiet time for long talk...

Very nice place to enjoy good food, and good service. Music was a bit too loud for conversation. Also be aware of where you sit, there was a wall heater blowing down on me.

I took a date to this location for an after work meet up. The food choices were excellent and had plenty of options for my vegetarian guest. Both of our food items were excellent and I was surprised that the portion sizes were very generous. I would recommend this restaurant!

Overall it was a great experience. The homemade patè was the best I ever had. I found the potions of the other meats to be really small for the price and it was really disappointing. The manager was nice and very helpful but we did have to get up a couple of times to ask for things (drinks, condiments) because no one checked on us.
