Everything we ordered was delicious and perfectly prepared! The waitress was attentive and the menu was as varied and interesting with simple options as well (we ate in the “wine bar” part. It got a little noisy as the night got busier, but overall I thought the atmosphere was nice: I will definitely go again!

I took my mom out to celebrate her birthday and everyone always speaks so highly of Alice’s. Let’s just say that the food did not disappoint! Everything tasted AMAZING! The only downside was the service. Our server was very slow. He did have our tables and a large party to tend to, so I understand being a little overall, having only two tables should be something you can handle better. We learned more about the specials and food selections from the server tending to the table next to us than we did our own server. Will definitely return and hope to have someone else. Once again, the chef’s amazing work make this place a gem!

Larry was our waiter and he was outstanding, very informative about menu options. My wife had triple tail and I had duck and bother were outstanding. Dessert was bread pudding with ice cream and caramel sauce, good way to finish off our meal.

There really was no ambience and the area we sat in was quite cold due to air conditioning issues in the other part of restaurant.

Service and food is worth another trip to Alice's.

Robbie our server was attentive. Two people in our party ordered the lobster ravioli which was flavorless and extremely overcooked. We had hoped for better and maybe they were struggling with help, as many restaurants are.

From the friendly greeting and smiles we received at the door from Allison, to the amazing service we received from Allie and the good food, I am going to give Alice's restaurant a rating of *Outstanding*. Although there were a couple things I ordered that I personally didn't care for, I put that on myself. I actually survived after eating their sautéed mushrooms in garlic sauce. (That is *NOT* what I ate, but, it is the only way I could convince myself to eat the selection.) LOL! Next time I am going to try another entree, but, the black and Bleu pizza was delicious! Thank you everyone at Alice's for making my first visit special as well as memorable!!

We normally love coming here for a dinner date night out. We would normally come in once or twice a month. It had been a while since we had gone out and decided to visit. We sat in the wine bar area. Our waitress was very flustered and everywhere but we tried to understand. Our appetizers were just ok. My husband and I shared the veal tomahawk special. We were very disappointed for what we paid it came out stone cold and lacked any flavor. Unfortunately I don't think we will be coming back again.

The menu was very interesting. I had more trouble ordering than a normal patron- I have several allergies and one of them is a strong allium (onions, garlic, etc) allergy. The moment we walked in the door I was hit by a heavy garlic smell and I have learned that signals a problem for me. However, our food was excellent and our waiter was well informed and skillful. Our daughter commented that the facility wasn't worthy of the upscale experience.

There was a problem with air conditioning. We were very cold and it really disminished the experience. According to the waiter, the AC on one side of the building (the bar) was not working. Management’s solution was to turn down the temperature setting on the restaurant side to cool the bar down. Otherwise the food was very good.

As always our service was excellent and relaxed. The cocktails were delicious! Our appetizers …scrumptious and our meals……over the top. From seafood to lamb chops outstanding ❗️. They make you feel like they’re glad you came by and stay as long as you like. An extremely enjoyable evening…. Alice’s is always our first choice.

All I'm going to say is that dinner for 3 people cost almost $400 with the tip. That is with 3 glasses of wine equaling $20, 2 appetizers, 1 soup and no salads or desserts. It is the most expensive meal I have ever had. I wish I could say it was the best I've ever had but it was not.

All of our issues stemmed with waitress. We waited about 15 minutes after being seated for her to come to the table and it was so loud in the wine bar we asked her to come over to our side of the table so we could hear her. She did - once. We placed the wine and appetizer order and the appetizer arrived (and was delivered by another waiter) before the wine. We wanted to place our dinner order but she took off. We finished the appetizer and waited about 15 minutes before she came back. She bussed the dishes and took off again. She came back twice and did not take our order - and whenever she came over she stood on the opposite side of the table where we could not hear her. She then came over and told us that she could move us to another table as we asked. I told her we did not request a table change and that we needed to place our dinner order. This is over an hour after being seated. We waited another 30-35 minutes. No dinner and we drank our wine. So we left. On the way out we saw her and told her "we're leaving" - her response was "OK, Bye" Really? We appreciate the apologies from the chef and hostess but feel that they have staffing issues which they need to resolve before considering returning.

My wife and I had an outstanding dining experience, again!
We started with 1/2 dz oyster Rockefeller which were perfectly cooked, then the Caesar salad for 2, our entree we both had the Sea Bass and it was amazing!! We finished the evening by splitting a bread pudding which was warm and delicious. And our waitress completed the perfect experience! Bethany did an outstanding job and was so friendly and helpful.

Alice’s is a great place to go for fine dining or a more casual fare at the bar (same food offerings, just more casual). Service is great, offerings are fresh made to order and served at your pace. So for a special occasion, just a good meal out give Alice a shot . . . you will be on target, enjoy!

We went there for the first time last night. The food was very good as was the service.
My only complaint is that the server failed to attach a price for the specials.
I got the Veal Hatchet which I thought would be $40-$45. It was really $75. I would not have gotten it if I had been told the cost before ordering. The Veal Oscar (which was my real first choice) was half that price.
The bread was mediocre. I'd go back again but I wouldn't order blind.

The food is excellent by and large. The only complaint I have is the other evening I ordered a dish from the fine dining menu and they brought me a dish from their casual dining instead. I should have said something, but I did not not. It was just okay, but everything else I have had there has been very good.
