    Enjoyed an early date night meal before a show. Emily provided perfect service and the food was delicious. She made a helpful suggestion to accommodate a food need. As a 30 yr vegetarian with a meat-a-tarian spouse (their term), it was great to be somewhere with multiple options for both of us. (Great vegan options as well.) We will be back!

    Alcove is a beautiful place to meet up with friends for a beer and a snack. The service is friendly and the setting is lovely. The food continues to disappoint. Soggy fried squash, bland fish, and high prices made our visit less than great. For a really good meal, there are tons of better choices in OTR.

    Love the space! The food and drinks are amazing, but even with the music very low the loudness of the surroundings caused us to yell to the person next to us to be heard.

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded 1 day agoThank you for the feedback Courtney! It definitely gets loud in here with all of the hard surfaces; we're very sorry you had to yell to be heard. There are a couple of areas in the restaurant that are a bit quieter. Feel free to ask for them for your next visit!

    Second time eating here and enjoyed, but not that great for having to come downtown and pay to park. Ordered potato skins (a little too oily, pimento wasn’t strong) and burger (lettuce was soggy because under burger, sauce was nothing that great, buns a little stiff). Service was slow, but we were in no rush. Lastly, we were sitting in patio next to street and a homeless person asked us for money. Would recommend adding boxed plants to fence line.

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded 2 days agoHi there, thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback! We're glad you enjoyed yourself, but we wish it had been a perfect experience instead of just a pretty good one. We'd love to speak with you further and see if we can't make the third time the charm. If you wouldn't mind, would you reach out to our General Manager Ben? He can be reached at ben.rosenzweig@madtreebrewing. We hope to hear from you soon!

    Disappointing brunch experience. I have a severe food allergy, which I called ahead to discuss menu options and was given recommendations off the regular menu, but when I arrived, learned only brunch menu was being offered. Server was not willing to sub any ingredients that would work with my diet, so I ate two scrambled eggs and 3 cheeses from the cheese platter (and nothing else) for $20…and I brought my own food to supplement. Our food was cold when it arrived, my mother-in-law’s quiche was thin, dry and dense. She was brought a 2nd piece when a fresh quiche came out of the oven, but it had all the same qualities as the first. I don’t bother attempting to eat out b/c my food allergy; I expected my own dining experience to be lacking, but I was disappointed that all of the non-allergy dinners in our party were only modestly satisfied with our birthday celebration experience.

    Went for a birthday celebration. We sat inside on a Wednesday evening and it was relatively sparse as far as patrons. Bartender was also our server. He was on top of it, checked in often, recommended dishes, was there any time we needed him and super helpful. The place is beautiful! I would definitely recommend checking it out. My family loved the Meatballs and the Loaded Redskin potatoes as appetizers/tapas.

    The food was extremely mediocre and not warm. The restaurant was freezing cold and even though we commented on the temperature, we were not offered to switch tables. We were just told that it was cold because we were sitting by the air conditioner vent and that the other customers and the waiter himself weren’t cold.

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded on September 8, 2022Hi Jana, thank you very much for taking the time to speak with our General Manager today. I hope that we resolved the issues you had with us during your most recent visit, and that we'll get the opportunity to speak with you again soon.

    Interesting renovation of an old building into a bar and restaurant. Great OTR location, with a modern contemporary atmosphere. Beer was good, with a nice selection available. Food was just ok, and pretty pricy for what is offered. The charcuterie board was uninspired, the burger was very good, and the ginger chicken small plate had many flavors that really did not go together. Service was average too slow, but friendly.

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded on August 30, 2022Hi Patrick, thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback.

    The building is beautiful, great ambiance, and friendly servers. We were disappointed in the food though. The meatballs came out rare. We showed the waitress and told her we we careful with rare meat because my wife is pregnant. She told us they’re supposed to be rare. We didn’t eat them and she didn’t offer take them off the bill, but she did offer to send them back to cook them more. I think we would go back for drinks but don’t know if I’d eat there again.

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded on August 17, 2022Hi there, we are very sorry to hear that you were underwhelmed by the food. Our meatballs are made with Wagyu beef and we do purposefully serve them pink or red in the middle; however, we should have done more to accommodate you and your wife. We're very sorry to hear that we did not go above and beyond for you, and hope to have the chance to redeem ourselves in the future.

    Took my husband here for his birthday. Pros: great OTR location with parking right around the corner, walking distance to many other bars/restaurants. Beautiful refurbished old building with tons of natural light, plants, a solarium and patio. Food is fresh, farm to table, seems high quality. Can be very casual, as lots of Reds and FC fans there in t-shirts, but feels like a nicer establishment and can work for a dressier occasion as well. Food is delicious and uniquely presented. Lots of vegetable options, nice options for a lower carb or healthier meal. Nice mixed drinks and beer options. Cons: portions are small and pricey, depending on what you order. I had ginger chicken bites with the market tomatoes. We also shared a crudité appetizer. Was hungry in a few hours. Husband ordered the fish entree. Encountered some bones, but overall he felt it was filling enough. Menu is limited, but again, items were delicious.

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded on August 14, 2022Hi there, thank you for the thorough review! We're very sorry we didn't quite fill you up; we'll steer you toward some of our more filling options next time!

    The food and service were good and the environment is quite inviting, but like everything these days, the tab was a bit high. The bloody marys were tasty, but nothing special for the price. The glassware did match the wallpaper, but the sizes were quite small. Make those marys something to rave about. Serve them in a pint glass with an exciting garnish!

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded on August 14, 2022Hi there, thank you for the feedback! We actually are right in the middle of changing our Bloody Marys to be served in a pint glass. We think you'll be pleased next time!
