Great service and awesome back patio. Only food we were not fond of was the Brussels sprouts- had an odd smoky flavor. Frickles were amazing as well as the rest of our meal! Crowded inside but heated patio was great.

Worth a try. We'll go back to see if we have a better experience, but this visit was less than satisfactory. Bennett pale ale doesn't really look or taste like a pale ale. Fish and chips were just so so, and sauce was not good at all. We were served a whole hour after we placed our order. The kitchen appears too small for the number of tables in the restaurant. That said, the blt special was very good, and the burgers look terrific.

We had an amazing experience here! My friend had slipped in the rain (in a public area on the way to the restaurant, not at the restaurant), had injured her knee, and when we arrived and mentioned the situation they went out of their way to find a first aid kit, etc and help as much as they could though it was not their responsibility - the owner himself came over to assist. The restuarant was busy and it did not impact service or quality. We did not feel rushed and we enjoyed our food immensely, my cod tacos were perfectly cooked with just the right amount of spice, very well balanced! The great food and service helped us recover the day! We had Straus ice cream with an orange olive oil imported from Italy for dessert, very unique! I loved the creativity of the dishes and the ambiance, I highly recommend, we will be back and I will be back with others as well.

The IPA beer I had was very good, the tapa were just ok. I must not have read the descriptions but my mussels literally were served out of the tin. Son's burger was good (could have used a little more salt and burger was less than well done for his taste) and daughter's grilled cheese sandwich was also good. Tomato sauce/dip had a nice kick. Brussel sprouts could have been a little more on the crunchy/crispy side, but chorizo was nicely cooked. Overall, food won't be that memorable, but I could go back for just the beer, which of course is their bread and butter.

Fantastic service, despite busy incredibly busy due to the CiM. The staff had a great attitude, and the food/beer was sensational. Alaro really has everything you need, fantastic menu, great craft beer, sensational cocktail listing, and even a very respectable wine list.

Menu is limited - a bit unusual (so I would suggest checking it out before you go) but everything we had was excellent. Outdoor dining was good - relatively quiet and you could have a conversation - but indoor was very noisy, which isn't a bad thing necessarily - just an fyi if you are looking to have any kind of a conversation.

I would recommend, especially for a fun evening with friends.

What a find! Excellent beer and wow what a great wine and cocktail selection. I grew up in Spain and am always searching for authentic Spanish cuisine. We loved everything we had: from my white rioja, to the patatas bravas and incredibly flavorful tender octopus, our meal of tapas was great from start to finish. Service was attentive even though we visited on a very busy Friday. The back patio is lovely. We will be back.

Evening dinner with out of town guests on back patio. Lovely setting with enough heaters to keep us very comfortable. Small bites and then dinner. Everything was tasty. Music in background was not overpowering and we were able to visit comfortably.

Three of us had fish and chips, well cooked but needed a bit of seasoning on the fish first or in the batter. Good mustard slaw an fries. Of course the beer was great and enjoyed by each of us. Pretty noisy but that seems to be everywhere . We all enjoyed ourselves
