The menu was very limited. 0ne person ended up just ordering a salad and it was pretty small. Everything was overpriced. The service was nonchalant.
Our meal was absolutely delicious! Cody, our waiter was wonderful. He was fun, attentive, flexible and kind. It was a perfect evening, meal and location to catch up with an old friend. I also had to go back the next day with my mom to have her taste one of the incredible appetizers. Cannot wait to get back there for dinner (I live out of town).
Been to Allium multiple times (~6) and its always great. We had not been for awhile (trying other spots, no food or service issues) and we were so happy we decided to go back. Allium is comfort and creative at the same time. A great place to eat healthy, good cooking that has a unique spin. Allium gives you so much - without going over the top with fancy or $. While we will keep on trying new stops - Allium remains a go-to spot.
My risotto was good but I think the menu was too limited. Small plates were not enough for a dinner meal and the bigger offerings were very few.
My husband and I were seeing the sights and locals while on vacation. The restaurant was reminiscent of some very nice and memorable places we had visited in Europe. Our server was sweet and attentive. Overall a great experience. Thanks so much!
Alium had been a go to place for me for many years. It had some of the best and most interesting food in the area. However there is a new menu and it is very limited. Many of the best dishes are off the menu and the replacements aren't good. Perhaps there is a new chef but I believe they will definitely lose business. So my vote went from very good to good and can't go often because there are not enough good choices.
Loved our meal, wish they had mashed potatoes on the menu or sides option.
The food and drinks were perfect. It was a great atmosphere, even thought the place was packed, the tables were not cramped and we felt like we had our personal space. Our server was delightful and it overall was a great evening. We are coming back for more food!!
We shared several small plates, and the dishes were all interesting and delicious, as well as beautiful. Our server was busy and a bit distracted -- so not always easy to get her attention -- but she was also friendly and knowledgeable.
Outstanding dinner at the bar Saturday night. Sophie took wonderful care of us with great cocktails and delicious creative food.
Good food, nice space, too limited a menu - rarely changes and no specials
Great family dining with outstanding food.
Great for dinner after a movie or theater; wonderful service.
Allium is a terrific restaurant. Modern and delicious food. Many small plates to choose from as well as full size entrees. The staff is excellent and after a few visits definitely knows you.
Hippest place in Great Barrington.
Consistently fine restaurant. Creative food, interesting cocktails.
Food was fantastic though the service a bit challenging. The place was busy, we got little attention and food took over an hour. They seemed understaffed.
The waitstaff and kitchen staff were amazing everything we sampled was just as good if not better than the last! Must haves include the Brussels sprouts and the sweetbreads
Although we did receive our appetizer, the staff "lost" our entree order. The waitress never checked with us to ask how our entrees were, because she would have seen we never received them. After about 40 minutes, she realized something was off, checked with the kitchen and was told they had made our order. What a fiasco!! When we finally got our food, which we were told was rushed through, it arrived barely warm. Although she offered to comp us for dessert, we just wanted to get out of there. This would never ever have happened in a well run restaurant. In NYC (where we live) they would be out of business in 5 minutes.
This was our first time at Allium but it will not be our last . We were stunned to find out it had been at its present location for 11 years. We had been by it many times but it is so unassuming as to go unnoticed by us. Had it not been for OpenTable we might still be unaware of its existence. The food was very good and the staff friendly. The food came out promptly but it did take a while to get a second glass of wine. I suspect they were more crowded than normal due to a sold out concert nearby.
Good food; great service; need to put POPCORN back on the Menu!
Loved our experience at Allium. Nice vibe, delicious cocktails and food was excellent. Definitely a nice find in the Berkshires. One of us is vegan and they were happy to accommodate and we know it is not easy, so thank you. Our two kids were with us and their pizza was delicious.
Totally worth it. Amazing tapas! Great cocktails! Keeping Railroad Ave amazing in GB!
This restaurant may just not have been my "cup-of-tea". It was lovely inside and the service was excellent. However, the menu was limited with only a couple of vegetarian options. The portions were small and the prices were not. This may be a better choice if one is just looking to have a drink and some nibbles. The desserts were excellent!
Service was wonderful. Chef must have had a bad day. Table next to us sent food back as did us.
Great food, excellent service.
Had a lovely meal on a cold Saturday night.
Service was terrific, loved the Brussels sprouts, burgers were good.
Initially we were turned off by the menu, but the excellent serving staff described perfectly the dishes and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
I've been going to Allium since it opened and like it a lot it's the only restaurant in Great Barrington that has a hip New York City vib rand good food to match.
Great service, nice restaurant. Loved the cocktails and personal service.
We always enjoy our visits to Allium. The menu changes and varies, and we have had several items that we'd never had (or heard of) before. For this dinner, we had roasted parsnips with goat milk farro, and , just like our waiter said, this was delicious. Great place to try and share dishes.
Food was great and there were very interesting dishes! Do wish there were a couple more items on the menu. Restaurant gets very loud during holiday season with families.
Excellent service from Amy. Very knowledgeable about the wines. Food was wonderful.
All good from service, food, reservation honored on time!
The food was very good, the portions were pretty small. The service was very very slow, though the waiters were very good.
Excellent food, skillfully prepared. Locally-sourced ingredients and it tastes it. Friendly service. One of Berkshires best.
Food simply wasn’t worth the price.
Fabulous dinner at allium! I was surprised at our total bill because we certainly didn’t skimp on our order! My mom and I shared five plates and a bottle of wine. We enjoyed every single bite, practically licking our plates clean!
My only critique to the restaurant team is that the staff seemed a little overwhelmed. We had to flag down servers a few times. Everyone was wonderful, but they just seemed like they had a lot on their plates (no pun intended!)
I brought some friends to Allium for dinner. We had olives and the beet salad as appetizers, which were delicious. For dinner, two friends had the burger; I had the chickpea panisse and our fourth had the delicata squash - every bite was wonderful. We all agreed that Allium is an outstanding dinner experience.
For some years Allium has been one of the Berkshire's outstanding restaurants. Cozy, comfortable, with a good wine list and an always-interesting menu, it is well worth frequent visits. The menu is very creative but not fussy, very interesting but not pretentious, and delivers delicious tastes that will please even a picky eater. We've never been disappointed in numerous dinners, and always look forward to our next meal there. The service is excellent, too. I recommend sitting in the bar area, which is prettier and livelier and cozier than the slightly austere separate dining room. One of our favorite restaurants in the area, a pleasure to visit.
