    Love this restaurant! I have dined here three times in the month of January ! Everything is outstanding. Light and airy decor, interesting menu with unique choices, terrific service and overall great vibe ! Enjoyed the general manager introducing himself and asking how we enjoyed our experience. Very impressive. A tad noisy but people are out there, conversing and off their phones so that’s a good thing!!

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded 6 days agoWow, what a great review!! It's so great to hear that you loved everything. We definitely wanted to create a space where people can connect, and it sounds like it's working! We've loved having you all month long and we can't wait to see you again soon!!

    Of 8 dishes ordered, only the 'kale & avocado" dish was below par - too little kale & avocado, way too much cheese and mayo Lovely space Louder than I prefer, strained to hear all 5 at the table

    One of our favorite restaurants in OTR. We love the decor and ambiance. The food is always top notch and they change the menu fairly often. The service is always welcoming and cheerful. We had the fried cauliflower, squash soup, fried pork belly entree, and catch of the day entree and everything was delicious. Ben the manager came over to check on us and he was incredibly nice and welcoming as well. It just hits all the right buttons for us.

    I was underwhelmed by the food choices. Hard yo explain but idn’t feel like a dinner menu. I looked around and most people ordered the charcuterie- which i wish i had too. I had the jerk chicken sliders which were very messy on a date and the chips were tiny broken pieces that were hard to pick up and I’m not about to use a fork on chips. The ambiance was lovely though with plants everywhere. I would say it’s not a date place unless you just sit at the bar and drink.

    The living wall is incredible. The salmon cakes are delicious. The description on the menu mentioned getting winter vegetables which ended up being more of a garnish, rather a side. For the price it would have been nice to get a side portion. That was the only disappointment.

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded on January 15, 2023Thank you very much for the great review! We can definitely add a side of veggies for you next time, just let us know what you'd like!

    Left the full menu on the table, server never explained they only had brunch menu… disappointment number one; brunch menu is really limited and not that good, food took forever to come and when it did presentation was not great. Butternut squash was flavourless and with some kind of potatoes that resembled cardboard, salad with chicken was subpar as chicken was super dry, quiche was tiny, they didn’t have the chicken sliders even though they where on the brunch menu. We love Mad Tree and we have been loyal for many years but this was a complete disappointment, will not recommend and will not come back, we will stick with the Tap room.

    We enjoy the Alcove and believe it is a great addition to OTR. We received a flyer about the fixed menu for New Year's Eve and at the last minute thought we would give it a shot. The menu was interesting and seemed well thought out, but the execution of the courses left a little to be desired. The staff is great but did not seem to have a grasp of the timing and contents of the courses. Finally, most disappointing was the value. Each seat was $80 not including alcohol which was steep given the selections. The staff may be better off sticking with what know and keeping it casual rather than trying to go too upscale. We will return to the Alcove. Cheers to a new year and a more thoughtfully planned and executed evening next New Year's Eve.

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded on January 1, 2023Hi there, thank you very much for the review! It was obviously our first time trying something so upscale and our first time executing a prix fixe menu as well. We definitely learned a lot doing it, and we have a lot of notes for the next time we try something like this. Thanks for being a fan, and we'll see you soon!

    The decorations are pretty but that’s it. I ordered the mimosa flight and there was barely any champagne in the glasses. A couple hours later both my husband and I were sick from the food.
