Al's Upstairs is where we go to have an exquisite dining experience. The food is always excellent and the service beyond compare.
Great experience. Food was excellent, service did not disappoint.
Went for my husbands birthday. Everything was excellent! It had been several years since we had been but will be going back. Very nice staff and food was excellent
We love the place.. great ambiance. Social distancing and masks for all servers which we appreciated. However, the food was not as good as it was on our last visit. We ate everything, but lacked flavors that usually are present. Seafood Cannelloni which I always order and sea bass were not as good! However scallops and risotto were outstanding. We will be back to try again. Tiramisu was also outstanding
Food was so fresh and delicious! Excellent experience, will definitely going back!
First time diners @ Al's. We were greeted and seated by Al himself. We had a table next to the window with a beautiful view of the evening sun setting on downtown Columbia. The waiter was well versed on the daily specials and quick to return with drinks. Salads and entrees were served with ample time to enjoy and relax. Entrees had very nice presentation and perfect temperature.
My wife and I had frequently driven by Al's Upstairs, and commented that we need to try it sometime. So glad we did.
They have an abbreviated but delicious menu. My Manhattan was perfect.
Love looking out over the river.
Excellent as always, my family loves eating at Al's Upstairs!
Our "go-to" special occasion place, never disappoints! The best Lobster Bisque in puff pastry appetizer is reason enough to return frequently! Day scallops, Chicken Charleston, Veal and pastas...all divine!
Great food as always! The staff was super friendly. The price was affordable for the quality of food.
Service was great. The food was perfect and our waitress was spot on.
My husband and I ate at Al's with my parents and it was a wonderful experience. We were early for our reservation but were seated immediately. Our server, Rebecca, was adorable and great at her job. The pacing of service was ideal. Lemon drop martinis were perfection. We each ordered a different entrée and were all impressed, except that my salmon was undercooked in the center. The owner came over to apologize about the salmon and I told him (honestly) the risotto was so good it more than made up for the salmon. He not only comped my meal but packed a bowl of risotto for me to take. I highly recommend the crab cake appetizer. We will definitely return to Al's Upstairs.
Al’s is a favorite dine in spot. The food is always wonderful, the staff incredibly nice and the experience personal.
We have never had a poor experience at Al's Upstairs. Both of us had the Whole Fried Flounder for the first time. Our fish was too crispy to be flaky like we expected. The hoisin sauce was generous. We will return and go back to our favorite dishes.
Great night,great food and great service.
Excellent food and excellent service from our server who was new to the job but well trained. We could not have been more pleased with the food or the service.
Great food and ambiance. We enjoy going to Al's Upstairs for special occasions and it does not disappoint. Further, during this time of Covid-19, the restaurant did a nice job with spacing out the tables to provide some distance from other diners.
As always...we enjoyed the food....the surroundings and the service.
Good. Very good
Specials were amazing! Excellent service. Romantic location for special occasion dinner.
I really enjoyed Al's Upstairs, but I requested a table overlooking the city scape and instead we got a table facing a wall...😕
Perfect dinner. A wonderful place to celebrate any special occasion
Excellent food and service! Al's is our favorite spot in town!
Incredible, fresh food. Everything was amazing. I wish we had been seated where we had a view of some sort.
Very nice spot and good view. Food was excellent.
Food was as always excellent. I asked for a table near the window to celebrate our 30th anniversary they accommodated wonderfully.
Our waiter was very nice and observant. The food was amazing. Such a great atmosphere. Will definitely be returning.
Food and service were amazing as always.
Great service and view! Food was ok. I had the salmon special which I’d rate an 8, my daughter had the meatballs and didn’t like them at all.
Food was fabulous and service was too!
As always, consistently good food and service. Nice atmosphere.
