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.

First time here, had a reservation with friends. Good service, good food and well-priced.

Decent food, great service, eclectic menu, mostly a bar scene vs. restaurant.
