    Terrible and humiliating experience. We booked an indoor table for 11am, arrived on time, and made our order around 11:10am. Got our drink around 11:15am and foods arrived 11:50am - a bit of long wait but fine, it was our anniversary we could bear with it. Around 12:15 pm, a group of family arrived (for your contexts, we are people of color and this family is white) - and then the blonde lady who stood at reception walked to us, saying we were hitting the time limits (despite there were few other tables that arrived earlier than us and still finishing their foods) and they would move us to the bar so that we can finish our foods there and to make space for the white family. This is such a humiliating experience - will never ever come back to this place again. If you are people of color and you do not want to be treated like this - avoid this place at all costs.

    Honestly I was very disappointed in my brunch at Aloette. With so many other options, I would not return. I rated based on overall food experience as others like their meal. First, only drip coffee is available. No espresso based drinks which I was surprised with again given the calibre of this establishment My croque senor was almost inedible. The pork cutlet was the only good thing. The bread (white wonder bread) was soggy from the béchamel like sauce. I could not taste the Gruyère. I asked for no egg on my sandwich, it came with an egg on top which I was able to remove. The French toast had a strange texture, not sure what kind of bread they used. The short rib was good as was the fried chicken. The fries were excellent.

    Every bite of food here is packed with flavour. The service was quick and really friendly. The burger was one of the best in the city. Those fries addictive. Wow oh wow that bread....I can't even describe how good it is. Lastly the lemon meringue is what dreams are made of.

    Lunch at Aloette was just great! The serving staff were very nice and helpful, coffee was on the table right away, and readily refreshed. The server explained the special for the lunch menu, smoked salmon tower with savory pancakes. I ordered that, and it was delicious - the tower also included some tasty additions for my pancakes, a flavourful cream cheese, delicate cucumbers & tomatoes and capers. Delish! My partner ordered the pork belly and escargot, I had a taste, it was so good. We added an order of the double fried french fries, yummy! We also had a mini loaf of very fresh cheese bread added to our meal, which was wonderful. The place was very busy, and we sat at the bar/counter, which was quite comfortable. We really enjoyed our meal here, highly recommended!!

    The experience could not have been better. We could only get seats at the bar but they allowed a great view of the chef garnishing and putting final touches on the food. The food and cocktails were amazing. It is not inexpensive, but it is worth it.

    My friend and I enjoyed our meal quite a lot. Our servers were very attentive and the food was fantastic. I do think that for the price of the steak, it should come with an additional side but it was very delicious. Will be coming back again soon.

    Overall a good experience. Service was very good. The taste and presentation of the food was excellent. The portion sizes were disappointing for some meals. Foie gras parfait was two tiny crostini with the foie gras mousse on top for $20…..no value here. Lettuce wedge was exceptional and quite large. Shrimp and grits consisted of three shrimp in grits in a small bowl…..about 6 or 7 spoonfuls. Fried chicken was a good portion and delicious. Came with no sides. Lemon meringue pie was delicious and a good portion. Suggestions from the group were to strengthen portion sizes for some dishes and add sides. Short ribs looked lonely on the plate and would have benefited from some polenta or mashed potatoes.

    Wagyu burger with truffle was outstanding in the way the truffle mixed with the smoked taste of the meat. Brie truffle appetizer had a more than satisfying blend of flavor. Aloette burger and triple cooked fries also delicious. Staff was friendly and the façade looked nice with the dimmed lights and diner setting.

    It ambiance was amazing and the decor was very cool since it's modeled to look like the inside of a train dining car. The Foie Gras Sundae is a must try with a partner or by yourself if you have a big appetite.

    We went to alloette for the first time to celebrate my fellas 63 birthday. The food was fun, innovative and delicious. The ambience was fabulous. Loved the interior design. Well thought out. I looked at many of the considerate choices for the decore from the washrooms down to the tiles. Bravo! My only recommendation was the poor choice of rap music using the N word. That did not suit the restaurant nor did I consider it cool. Music is our jam and so many other choices could have highlighted and added to the ambiance. Thank you for the lovely night, Michelle

    Welcome to Open Table Aloette! My favourite go to place if I skip out of work early, a 5:30 at bar reservation that will guarantee friendly and unpretentious but meticulous service, and a view into the final touches of every decadent meal and cocktail served. It's a no-brainer for vibes, quality food, and good people watching. Thank goodness for all the signature dishes that continue to pull me back....and especially desserts that do not disappoint....best lemon meringue pie, and a too cool interpretation of old school sundae- foie gras soft serve anyone? I'm in. Always. And now I get points..buh bye Tock!

    You can’t go wrong with the service and the food here. I recommend sitting at the bar if a party of 2 because the noise level is loud. Or if you prefer a table, sit side by side. Sachi was a great bartender, the best gimlet outside of the Acme Bar in Berkeley, California. She was attentive and ordered our courses for a timely delivery. We shared the wedge salad, the scallops, and the full order of chicken. Highly recommend all. I’m not usually a dessert fan but could not resist the lemon meringue pie…the best I’ve ever had…sorry Grandma!

    Excellent food. Great staff. Way too loud! I would recommend this only with the qualifier that it's too loud to enjoy the experience! The restaurant was packed for good reason based on the food and skilled staff but the music pushes people out the door too soon. Chef, it might be a "diner" but let us savour your work for a few minutes!
