This place is awesome. A hidden gem near causeway street. Friendly professional staff who demonstrate excellence in their work. Menu has wide variety of options for all tastes. Advanced wine selection. Will definitely return.
The food at Alcove is good, but what sets is apart is the superb service and great setting. The outdoor dining is such a nice option, with a cool view and relatively serene atmosphere (vs. being on Hanover Street or right on another busy street). The cocktails and wine list are 10/10 and the staff is super knowledgable about the whole menu, as well as being very friendly and kind. We love Alcove and return frequently!
I would like the brunch items to come with a side rather than be ordered separately.
Once again Alcove doesn’t disappoint! The staff amazing! Food amazing! Atmosphere tops! Thank you again to Tom and his incredible team for a magical evening!!
Five friends got together after way too long for some outdoor dining. We had the rose pitcher and the margarita pitcher and both were very good. Almost everyone got a burger, and they were perfect. We ordered the brownie for dessert, and they brought out complimentary espresso martinis. We had an amazing time.
Alcove’s patio is an enjoyable place for an evening meal. The the starters, entrees and desserts are all delicious.
Uninspired tastes and preparation for this lunchtime meal. It was a different world from the care that went into food on our meal a few days ago at Woods Hill Pier 4
One of the finest dining experiences I've had in a long time. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and made it a point to make sure we were taken care of. I had told her that we were fasting and the apps were at our table within minutes. The fare was amazing, highly recommend the zucchini fritters as well as the half chicken which was very juicy and cooked perfectly. Finish with the blueberry cake and the ice cream. Highly recommend!
Great food as always!—-beautiful night outdoors before a Bruins game
always a great place to have a friends lunch day!!!!
Loved the outdoor seating, service and food. Will dine there again.
This was my 3rd visit to alcove and was excited to share the experience with friends visiting from out of town. We left feeling disappointed; burgers severely undercooked, fish tacos soggy and lacking flavor, appetizers arrived before the two cocktails our table ordered and service was not what I’ve previously received at this restaurant.
Inside seating type of day. Staff & Room well prepared and operated given safety concerns. Never felt uncomfortable, service was good, as was the food.
Will be there again soon.
Great place with wide variety of options. Great drinks, awesome atmosphere and excellent staff. The wine selection is broad and lots of representation.
Loved the atmosphere and view. Food wasn't much to write home about.
The food and drinks were spectacular. Our friends are on special, somewhat restrictive diets, and our waiter was able to make great recommendations to accommodate them. Everyone had a wonderful time and we will be back!
Absolutely delicious! Wondering services and a beautiful atmosphere!
Everything was amazing! Our waitress had great energy and recommended the best food and drinks on the menu. Great raw bar, pitchers and drinks, and the salmon was wonderful!
Very nice staff. Tasty drinks. Good variety on the menu.
Not many entrees selections. Service was poor. We had to wait to get waiters boy come back to table.
Great server - Dennis! Really enjoyed the wine list also. Food always great.
Overall i felt like this place had an identity crisis, the food didn't really have a purpose and the ambiance felt all over the place. Felt like a solid hotel bar but nothing to like...spend 400 dollars at (which we did). Our waitress was so nervous it made it a super weird experience. All the food was like... fine? i forgot what i ate as soon as i left.
Halibut overcooked and other food salty
Been several times, this time with group of friends who were fist timers. Food and service was fantastic. Allison is a gem and went over details of the menu. Tried several appetizers which were good, the zucchini fried falafel and the pickle of the day ginger carrots were excellent. Shrimp cocktail was fair. Can’t wait to go back.
Good food. Would like more variety suck as a Filet of Beef but overall I would recommend very highly
Absolutely amazing as always! We celebrated a birthday with friends and it was absolutely awesome! Tom makes everybody feel like they are so incredibly special!
The service, cleanliness of the restaurant, and ambiance here are excellent. The food was good, but not excellent and we suspected that many of our dishes were prepared ahead of time and reheated. The portions are small for the high price of some dishes. The mixed drink I had was excellent.
Great atmosphere, food and service.
Excellent small plates, great wine selection and superb service, what is there not to love?
IT's a great outdoor spot. The food is good and service is remarkable.
Would not go again
Excellent location, good range of dining choices and the quality is consistently good. The staff interested in you coming back. Great spot for outdoor dining and continuing your day / night in the area.
Love this place -would recommend to anyone. The staff is passionate about the food and wants you to have a great experience.
Great cocktails and food looked, and tasted, wonderful!
Service was great. View and location were perfect. Patio was well spaced and comfortable. We tried three different cocktails, two were great, one was OK. Food left much to be desired. We ordered the caviar, the French onion dip that came with it was not good. We got two orders of the New England lobster dip which was awful. Tasted more like it had tuna mixed with mayonnaise, very little lobster. The impossible burger was fine however I had added avocado and that was forgotten. The fried chicken sandwich that my friend ordered looked like I have been sitting in a warmer and was not made to order. The best thing we ate were the potato chips.
Very good food topped with excellent service by the wait staff. This is the second time we have eaten here, and we will eat here again. The mushroom tagliatelle, one of the specials, was excellent and the cream sauce was light. While I would have liked a larger portion, it was sufficient. We only wish the menu was more extensive and suspect it will be once more people begin to frequent restaurants again.
Went for lunch Easter Day and the food, as usual was wonderful. The menu offers creative dishes with flavors that compliment well. The broccoli salad with chicken is one of my favorite dishes. The patio is nice, especially in the afternoon when the sun is on it. Views of the Zakim. The food always takes a while anytime I’ve gone, however the service is always friendly.
Food was AMAZING and moderately priced. We sat inside and loved being by the windows to feel the sun. Patio is beautiful and we will definitely be enjoying summer evenings here again! Drinks were also delicious
Our waitress was very rude and unfriendly. Disappointed with the service.
Good spot for some pregame Bruins beers and chow. Nice menu, lots of options for everyone. Oyster selection was solid and they were delicious.
