Early Valentines Day
As always, excellent! Such a great place for date night!
My fiancé and I truly enjoyed getting to celebrate our anniversary at Al’s Upstairs. The food was incredible and the ambiance of the restaurant was very elegant and quaint. I would definitely recommend it to anyone I know!
I had the pasta alla al and it was incredible. The sauce was perfect. I would like more pieces of seafood, but other than that it was very good. Stuffed mushrooms were also great. Service was amazing. And a seat by the window was hard to beat. Great place all around
Al’s Upstairs never disappoints! The food is fabulous and the service is top notch. Highly recommend this wonderful restaurant
Service and food great...
Pre show dinner
Very romantic atmosphere. Nice wine selection. Friendly service staff. The food was excellent! I was very surprised at the reasonable prices. I would definitely recommend for a nice dinner. I will certainly return!
Food and service were amazing. Could not of had a better experience.

It was just ok. The meal wasn't worth $85. It wasn't bad, but it also wasn't great. I'd give it 3 1/2 stars.
Al's was the perfect place for our celebration! Our daughter was delayed so we ordered some appetizers. It was so nice to not feel pressured to order knowing that she should be arriving soon. Our night was exceptionally wonderful because of our waitress Correll. She made sure everything was perfect and was so kind, patient and understanding. She was so great we just wanted to have her join us for dinner! Please wish her well on her travels. She is in our prayers. She is a gem!
We will be back for more special dinners at Al's Upstairs. It truly was a great experience from reservation to the moment we left. Thank you!
First time my wife and I have eaten at this restaurant but has been highly recommended by friends. Sat at a table with a review of downtown Columbia. A very nice menu that was not overwhelming in size. The food and drink was excellent. We'll be back.
The whole experience was beautiful. The setting. The ambiance. We had oysters as appetizers and there was an amazing sauce and bacon sprinkled on each one and it was delicious. We ordered the flounder which was out of this world. We also ordered the seafood manicotti. Lastly we had the cheesecake which by far hands down the best home made tasting not too dense cheesecake ever. Our waiter Dustin made sure our experience was top notch.
Great value, always amazing!
Also finally met Al!
The grouper was excellent but the veal picata seemed a little bland. The wine and service excellent.
Always a pleasure to dine at Al’s Upstairs!!!
We were so surprised when we walked into the restaurant. It’s upstairs in an old house which overlooks the city and the ambiance is very romantic. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. Our waiter was wonderful and personable. We can’t wait to come back.
Food was great. We tried calamari for appetizer which was “ok”.
Dessert was excellent. Our server Michelle was superb.
I have been to this establishment before was very happy with all.
This time it was terrible constantly looking for wait staff. My husband ordered chicken parm How do eat it without a knife?
The waiter looked at him (huh)... Bread we were told they ran out of bread was it that busy that you hadn't realized you would need more bread!
My stuffed mushrooms were cold trying to get the server to tell him impossible.
Asking for an additional glass of wine also a problem
AU consistently remains among Columbia’s best dining experiences!
The pasta Alla Al is delicious! A must try for all seafood lovers.
Always a great meal at Al’s. One of my favorite places to eat.
We enjoyed our dinner. Everything was wonderful and service was outstanding. Thank you Al! We will be back.
Really a nice place with great surroundings. The food was excellent and very fresh and the service was great as well. This was a very good value for the money. Very fair pricing and great tasting food with the right portions.
Always enjoy the food at Al’s. My friends and I all ordered something different and no one was disappointed. The noise level was high only because the group behind us was very loud. It’s a small, cozy space so one group can affect the ambiance. Highly recommend Al’s!
Fantastic food and great service!
Great view of Columbia city.
Great atmosphere, staff, and food! Awesome view of the River and downtown Columbia. Request a window table
Another excellent dining experience. Al’s is a favorite!
Always a great experience at Al’s with Allen’s superb customer service!
We had a great time her and the service was great! The food was priced appropriately!! We had the veal parmigiana and flounder!
Always a favorite! The perfect combination of a tasty menu, pleasant atmosphere, great service, and a lovely view. Our special occasion "go to" restaurant for a reason. Never disappoints! Can't wait for the next visit this Christmas season.
Awesome evening as always! Love this restaurant! A really nice, leisurely evening!
I really enjyed my visit with my son on 11-22-2019. The only thing not satisfied is that we were set at a table by the window where the floor slanted away from my son's chair. It made the time at the table somewhat uncomfortable for him.
Always a fabulous dining experience. Love the Duo!
Excellent meal and service as always. We look forward to coming here every November to celebrate our anniversary.
Phenomenal!! Highly recommend the lobster bisque. My scallops were amazing, and the market flounder was to die for. Save some room for the cheesecake!
We really enjoyed our dinner there. I had chicken Charleston. I never ate this kind of meal before and I liked it. The service was really nice. The noise level was low, which means that I could talk with my husband without yelling. I liked that they had a tray of desserts. It is hard to resists desserts when you see them. I did have a classic, the tiramisu. The prices are reasonable. I definitely recommend it.
