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.
One of the best meals I've ever had. I had Chef Mike's Chicken pasta. It was spectacular. I'm not kidding, I could have licked the plate! It was that good. The setting is so lovely too, overlooking the lights of downtown. Can't wait to go back.
great as always. Our go to place for birthdays and anniversaries or with out of town guests.
The food was excellent. The past ala Al was amazing. It was a first date and she was very impressed. Al's staff actually read my request via OpenTable and acted on it. I noted it was a first date and they did everything they could to make it special. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a intimate setting.
Al is getting it right!!!
Always dependably delicious.
Excellent food and very quiet for fine dining with a date with the wife.
Fantastic food. Service was OK, waitress missed a few ques but still did a good job. Best Italian restaurant in the Columbia area so far. Scallops and the lobster bisque were off the chart! Definetly coming back.
The food and service were amazing. We were greeted immediately upon entering the establishment.
My husband and I went for our anniversary dinner. The service and the view of the city at sunset was wonderful! We had oysters for appetizers and our entree’s were delicious their desserts are made in house!!! They also had a gluten free pasta option and stated they could accommodate almost any dish I chose! Value for the money spent was great!
Everything we ordered was delicious. Always a treat to go there and not too expensive .
We had an amazing time at Al's Upstairs. This is our 3rd anniversary, but 1st we didn't go on vacation, so we wanted to go somewhere super special and romantic but local. It felt like we were on vacation. The food options were top notch and delicious. Thank you Al & your staff for an amazing night.
We came here for an anniversary dinner and were very pleased with the whole experience. The staff, food, and ambiance were wonderful.
It was perfect for what we were looking for. A romantic date night. Overlooking the city at sunset was beautiful. Food was great and atmosphere was very unique. Quiet and romantic.
