Food, staff, service as good as it gets...an absolutely fantastic evening!
Great outdoor set up with excellent cocktails and food.
Amazing service, environment and food. Can’t wait to go back again
Outdoor set up is great with a great view of the Zakim!
Beautiful outdoor patio, great service, awesome food.
Great spot for drinks and food with an amazing view of Zakim Bridge. Hidden gem
Great location and food was OK. Limited menu due to restrictions. I’d go back once we return to normal.
Service and food we exceptional. Would recommend outdoor dining the view is stunning.
Incredibly slow, inattentive, and inhospitable service. Food was decent, but the portions were very small especially for the prices. Stingy wine pours. Some tables were not even close to 6 feet apart.
Always best in class from service to food ambiance and of course cocktails.
We had a beautiful evening outside. Food was delicious. Service was fair. But overall enjoyable evening.
Dining outside was a tremendous treat. The tables are spaces far apart across the grand piazza -- unlike many of the North End restaurants that don't have the room. It's a bit noisy because of the Zakim Bridge traffic but not enough to keep us away. The food was wonderful--including a pork schnitzel that is exactly what a schnitzel is supposed to be, pounded thin with a crispy shell. The service was friendly and efficient. People should take advantage of the outdoor dining before the snow flies.
Food was phenomenal. Patio was well spaced. Service was incredible as always.
This is a great spot for outdoor dining. Very spacious with nice views of the water and Zakim bridge. You do get the highway noise though. Service was excellent. There’s something on the menu for everyone. Some people mentioned the food is pricey and portions are small, but honestly the quality is great so you can’t complain. I hope they consider purchasing heaters for Fall because we definitely will go back there.
The food and service was great. We had a fabulous water view.
Sarah is an utterly delightful server. The quality of the food is wonderful, and, to my family, this is quite important. Eating outdoors, safely distanced, on a beautiful evening made this such a treat. The grilled broccoli salad, salmon poke and burgers were particularly popular. A well mixed drink rounded out the experience. We will be back.
Took my mom here in ordered to have a good view of the bridge at night. Got some awesome photos
Unfriendly hostess - over salted food - cocktails served after main dish - incorrect final bill with addition of items not ordered (or served) - forgettable, overpriced experience
Service is great and they have a great outdoor patio with very intentional social distancing. They have classics dishes always worth trying ( brussel sprouts, shisito peppers, broccoli salad) and daily specials too! The striped bass is awesome and so is the salmon poke .
Fantastic patio to enjoy dinner on a sunny summer night. Great food, great drinks.
The appetizers were very tasty. Great service and staff.
Great meal, great evening especially these warm nights on the patio during this pandemic era. Same carefully selected seasonal ingredients transformed into yummy dishes you are use to inside pre/Covid.
Excellent service(Marissa),food and outside dining is fabulous!
Awesome! Everything was delish and the service was excellent. Pretty views.
Alcove continues to set the bar for an amazing outdoor dining experience with breathtaking views of The Zakim Bridge as a foreground to spectacular sunsets. More importantly, the service is always on point and you can tell the place is well run by a seasoned leadership team with years of experience providing patrons the best service to enhance the dining experience. And then you get to the food in which the chef has brought some of the best flavors to dishes which leave you craving to come back and try either the same dish or something new because of how good the last dish was. Excellent hand crafted cocktails, perfect wine pairing suggestions, and desserts and dessert drinks to round out an amazing experience! High high highly recommend you make this a go to in your rotation!
Lovely outdoor dining as long as the road noise is not too bad. Rush hour increases the noise off of the Zakim.
Fantastic venue for lunch or dinner in the world of social distancing. Big open patio, umbrellas, great sunset view behind the Zakim Bridge. Friendly staff, great cocktails & wine/beer selection and delicious food.
The food was TERRIBLE and at $42.00 for a Ribeye, if I want to substitute my side of French fries for something else, I should be able to! No one enjoyed their food. Bill was 191.34 and the food was not reflective of the cost. Our server was robotic and not friendly at all. Really resented the entire experience. Because it was my daughter's birthday, I did not complain. The the flies, gnats, flying ants and flea like insects were everywhere. Dreadful! Spray for god's sake!
We were able to order from two menus--lunch grill and mid day. Highly recommend the huge grilled shrimp/prawns. With a tortilla and avocado crema. Also the Sicilian rose....
This place really does it right. Beautiful outdoor dining, great menu and warm service. Nothing but happy at Alcove. Love this place!
Had a birthday dinner for my best friend carah , alcove was perfect in every way !
Alcove has done a fantastic job navigating these unprecedented times. It's certainly one of the best, safest patios out there right now and the premium service hasn't skipped a beat.
Love eating outdoors here. The views are great, as is the food.
So nice!! We had an amazing night with a great service great food and safe place.
Excellent service throughout the evening! A wonderful place to eat outdoors.
Beautiful dinner and view!
Personally, not quite as good as expected so can't rate as outstanding but on all fronts I would rate this restaurant as VERY GOOD.
Always a great experience at alcove. Great food, great service, and the outdoor patio is awesome. I love that they always try so so hard to make sure your dining experience is terrific. Definitely one of our favorite spots in Boston.
Terrible Service. Ordered Coffee and they never asked if we wanted cream or sugar. Also, when our food came they never asked if we needed any condiments with our items. We flagged down our server on multiple occasions. It started to rain and no one made accommodations for guests. Food is mediocre at best.
We sat outside. The view was really nice. Lots of room between tables.
