    The service is great but we were not impressed with the food. There was nothing special or unique about the food; it was bland. I feel it was overpriced for what it is.

    New chef. All the dishes were full of garlic. For those of us with a garlic allergy this was a problem. Only a few dishes could be altered. Culinary-wise, never a good idea to rely heavily on one spice.

    Food was good just not as tasty as it could have been. Very little use of seasoning or sauces. Caviar bites were good but the brioche was a bit stale and the presentation a bit bland for the price. Watermelon salad with raspberries and lettuces was underdressed with a nondescript dressing. Large pieces of watermelon would have worked better in cubes to incorporate into the salad. Salmon entrée was served on very bland wild rice with a small amount of a meh cauliflower sauce. Service was good if a little slow. There didn't appear to be enough waiters for all the tables. The atmosphere on the courtyard is very charming

    Terrific outdoor patio, food was good, not phenomenal (risotto was very bland), wine list was laughably over-priced (or just poorly selected -- too many bottles that were far too high priced for a neighborhood restaurant, adn 1/2 of the wines by the glass were $18 - $30, for a glass of wine; come on...)

    It was fantastic. I got a very good feel walking in from the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff. We were seated right away, drinks on our table in record time and a very knowledgeable and focused server as well as several others making sure we were wanting nothing. The food was fantastic and we will definitely be coming here again.

    Alley and Vine did not disappoint. The interior has a cool Art Deco vibe but it’s simple and spacious. While the atmosphere was casual the service was high end. Our server was attentive without hovering and knew the menu intimately. The food was incredible and their drink menu was cool and creative. I will definitely be going back!!

    We tried almost everything on the menu and did not have an unhappy bite. Cocktails were good and wine recommendation from server was on point. They also have mocktails on menu which were equally high quality. Outside seating is an excellent place to be. Noise is low. Staff were all personable and attentive. 10/10 would go back. I give 4 stars instead of 5 because I believe 5 stars should be reserved for Michelin-level performance.

    We ordered the Chicken 'a la diabla", marinated half chicken dish at the waiter's high recommendation. We were told that the shishito chili pepper sauce was a bit spicy and requested that the sauce be served "on the side". Our waiter acknowledged and agreed. When our dish showed up the sauce was not on the side but served on top of the chicken. Needless to say, this is not acceptable. We will try this restaurant one more time to determine if we should return and possibly that the waiter was having an off day. As for the rest of the entrees, the Braised Beef Short Rib, the house made pasta and pan fried fish were good. BTW, $35 corkage is a bit too high, IMO.

    The waiter was extremely rude. We were there to celebrate a birthday and he ruined our experience. We noticed that he favored other customers at the restaurant and he was very jolly when them. Every time he interacted with us he was short and dry, and overall made us feel unwelcome.

    Rather disappointing first visit to Alley and Vine. Our wedding anniversary, which was acknowledged by our secondary server, not the primary. The dishes were mixed. The fish was excellent, tasty and done just right, the pork chop was over-cooked, dry and under seasoned. Kicked ourselves for not sending it back right away, but that is something that we rarely do. We did mention it to our server, when she cleared the table, and the manager "compted" our salad and apologized.

    Reserved table for Father's Day brunch a week in advance, which had a set menu with three options. Very slow service (there for two hours) and ran out of one of the main dishes and one of the desserts. Not good experience when paying for an expensive meal.

    We went for Father’s Day brunch. A set 3 course menu was the only offering, not unusual for an occasion like Fathers Day, but they’d run out of food, so really we were paying $55 per person for whatever food was available, and they added a mandatory 20% tip for a party of 4. So in total, over $350 for a very unremarkable meal. The outdoor seating is cute, and nice to sit at in a good day but I would not recommend this place for any meal you’d like to be special in any way.

    Visited Alley and Vine for Father’s Day brunch. Never in my LIFE have I ever experienced worse service. Our salads/ appetizers took an hour from when we ORDERED and the main course took 2 hours from when we arrived. We paid THE FULL price for 5 people and one child, yet our desserts never arrived? We LITERALLY never got them. Maybe next time they shouldn’t take on as many reservations since they CLEARLY cannot handle it. Good food, but yikes, save your money and go somewhere else. Never dining here again. For what you’re getting, you’re better off going somewhere ELSE and with a MUCH better ambience. My family and I are beyond appalled. I beg you, please book something else or your special occasion will be RUINED by awful service and overpriced food.

    We were able to get in last minute and we LOVED everything! The caviar, the brie, the heirloom tomato salad, and the lobster risotto were all things we would reorder!! The cocktails were also real highlights! Also, note that the indoor seating is a bit loud. Next time we will look forward to outdoor if available. Highly recommend for foodies!
