The place is absolutely gorgeous. It has a kingsmen ( movie ) feel to it , library feel with beautiful chandliers , cozy place but beautiful and romantic . Service and food was excellent. Chinas were beautiful. I had the Branzino which was perfectly cook and tasty .my husband had the dry aged boneless rib eye which was delicious and the house made steak sauces were fantastic. Our sides were creamed spinach and mashed potatoes both were delicious. For dessert we had baked Alaska which was a show stopper but for me it’s just ok . We ordered the chocolate cake to go and that was a very rich cake . Super yummy . We will definitely come back !

I would have given this restaurant a 5 star review except for one point. My husband asked about rye whiskey as that is what he drinks and was recommended this sazerac whiskey. Most whiskey he drinks range from 12-18 per drink and he would not even have questioned 25.00 but the bar tender and the waitress did not let him know it was 75.00 and he was shocked as he would not have ordered it. Did it taste good yes, was it also his fault for not asking yes, but knowing the cost he should have been told the actual cost which could have politely been done by stating , Sir the cost for that is 75.00 would you still like that or would you like another choice. Also to rec the mot expensive rye you have was thoughtless of them . Food and service were wonderful other then that. I would suggest sharing as potions way too large for one person.

Started with a glass of wine for me and an excellent Old Fashion for the Husband, next shared the prawns and this is a special dish, excellent and a must try if you dine here. I had the stuffed lobster which was quite good and the husband had the NY Strip which was excellent, also had the spinach which was good. Husband had the coconut cream pie and even though I don't like cream pies, it was excellent. Service was outstanding. A very nice experience.

Food was excellent, so were the cocktails. However, as is not unusual, the value on the wine list was appallingly bad. 5x retail on bottles before tax and tip is not ok. Problem is, the by the glass selection is no better and no worse than elsewhere.

Fantastic service from all. Food was very good, but wine is over priced and they lack mid-range bottles. Fine for business expense accounts, but will only be a very occasional-special occasion kind of place for most diners. Beautiful design like all Schulson/Tinari restaurants. Service leads way there, just outstanding.

Wellington overcooked. Made good with desserts but the richness of the dish was lost. The ribeye was perfect as was the bone marrow and brocolli

I made a 5:15 reservation for a Tuesday about two weeks in advance. I went with my SO and we celebrated our anniversary. If you've never been before, Alpen Rose is next to Double Knot, with a locked door and a buzzer to get in. We were immediately greeted with a "Happy Anniversary" and seated right away. Our server was amazing! He gave us a tour of the menu and shared his recommendations. We started with complimentary champagne (a gift for our anniversary - so nice) and ordered the octopus salad and parkerhouse rolls (half and half). I am not an octopus fan, but the salad was delicious! Even the fingerling potatoes were delicious. We ordered a round of cocktails - No. 24 and No. 76 - both delicious! We split the 32 oz porterhouse with sides of the onion rings, potato wedges, and the creamed spinach. The creamed spinach was easily my favorite of the three, which I was not expecting! The bread crumbs add an amazing layer of texture. The steak was incredible! It was cut from the bone table-side and the first bite was so tender and flavorful. We overheard someone saying they were going to use their rolls to make filet sandwiches and we stole the idea - SO good! The darker steak sauce was great on the sandwich. We were too full for dessert, but our server brought out small bite size treats for us with a sparkler! I am so excited to come back again.

Went with my wife for Valentine's Day. Service was excellent. I thought the bone-in ribeye was outstanding. My wife got the grass fed filet and she felt it was a little too salty. Both of our side dishes were under cooked, the roasted carrots and cauliflower, but they were removed from our final bill. I will definitely go back.

Alpen Rose is one of my favorite restaurants in Philly. The food is fantastic. The service is impeccable. The drinks are all great. Everything about Alpen Rose is amazing. I wish it was a little more affordable, so I could eat there all the time. It's a great place to go for special occasions. Probably better that way, so I don't go too often and have it lose its luster!

This restaurant is a true gem! Loved it. Went for Valentines Day with my husband and what a treat. The buzzer to get in with a section of the door opening to confirm your reservation was a treat. I felt like a celebrity. Cozy seats, warm setting, unbelievable service (loved our waiter Jonathan), and the food was absolutely amazing. It is pricey but it was a special night out and no pricier than the other steakhouses in the city. Hard to get a reservation but well worth it if you finally get one. I booked mine way in advance. Hope to go back one day soon. Definitely go - you will love it.

Service was excellent. You feel like your dinning in someone’s study with crystal chandeliers, library books and eclectic mix and match dinnerware. From drinks, salad, Parker house rolls to sides, entrees(fish was excellent) and dessert(baked Alaska )everything was top notch! This 45 seat restaurant, was so much better than any of the larger steakhouses.

Have been patiently waiting to try this restaurant since it opened several months ago, well worth the wait!

Its ambiance alone takes you into a world of wonder. From when you first have to ring the door bell to enter, until the dessert cocktails after the perfect meal.

Me and my friend split a few of the recommended menu items, avocado salad, octopus, Boneless Dry Aged Ribeye(14oz), perfect to split SO MUCH, and the cauliflower and potato wedges.

Ran out of baked alaska, but Jonathan our waiter was able to find another special dessert for us :) Great service and amazing place to have a beautiful meal!

If you want a quite place this is not the place for you; however, if you can stand an obnoxious talker and or laugher in close proximity, then the steaks will not disappoint.

Outstanding service. It felt like we were the only table in the restaurant, pampered. Definitely an excellent choice for a special occasion. The fact that steaks can be carved table side and shared made it more affordable than expected.
