    Our server Valentina was wonderful as well as the manager and all the staff. It was my daughter’s birthday and they did a great job of making her feel special. The food was delicious and the restaurant was really pretty with a whole wall of live plants. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    Another dandy brunch at Alter House. Crepes and French toast were spectacular as was the breakfast skillet and hummus fries. Always a pleasure to dine here. We had relatives from NJ join us as they were on their way to the Finger Lakes for eclipse viewing. A wonderful time was had by all, thanks to the owners & staff there. No better place in NEPA to dine!

    I really wanted to love this place. First time there. Pros: *Food overall good. Beet salad was amazing. Fettuccine was very good. *Clean and nice atmosphere *Bathrooms clean Cons: *Small portions *Prices a bit high *Kids meal chicken strips were spicy (!?) *Service extremely slow and generally lacking *Desserts were terrible. Crepe cake smelled of fish. Chocolate cake was very dried out. *Menu is 90% drinks, very little food. This is a bar with some food options. Almost all draft beers were fruity...not my fav.
