    Fantastic meal at Alcove. First time coming for dinner and was very impressed. Great farm-to-table/fresh menu with something for all tastes. LOVE the house lager. Chicken sliders are spicy and delicious. Bistro fries are crispy with an addictive sauce. Even the garden salad is unique with a bright house made dressing. Fantastic service. Manager came over to the table as well to introduce themselves and check us on. Zero complaints from us. We will be back. Soon I hope.

    Cookie was a fantastic server. He was attentive and professional. Michael is doing great training with him so far. He always had a smile on this face when he showed back up to our table. Rob was such a kind bartender. He improvised multiple mocktails for me. PLEASE give these fine gentleman the recognition and promotion they so dearly deserve. I will most definitely be back.

    This is a step-change for MadTree, a restaurant that happens to sell MadTree beers, nothing like a brewery. Love the plant-based decor, but the food, while tasty, is overpriced. Also more dressy than some OTR restaurants.

    Made birthday brunch reservations for my boyfriend and I. I was instantly impressed by the interior of the restaurant. Very esthetically pleasing and inviting atmosphere. We were greeted by a lovely host and our server was a pleasure. The manager asked about the occasion and wished my boyfriend a happy birthday which was very sweet. Our food was delicious and the plates were deceptive in that they looked small but were actually very generous portions of food! I definitely plan returning for brunches with the girls or family!

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded 5 days agoThank you very much! Happy birthday again to your boyfriend! We're very happy to hear that you loved everything.

    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 by MadTreeResponded 5 days agoThank you so much for the outstanding review! So glad we were able to have different options for you. We're a big fan of Emily's as well, thank you for the shout out!

    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 7 days 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 on September 22, 2022Hi 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.

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded 5 days agoHi Jessica, thank you very much for taking the time to speak with our General Manager earlier this week. We will definitely take your feedback and use it to learn and get better. We hope to see you again soon.

    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.

    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.
