Great service, delicious burger and a warm and cozy outdoor space. Highly recommend!
Very prompt, friendly service. Outdoor seating with heat lamp above felt very comfortable and safe! One of only 2 or 3 UES restaurants we are willing to eat at during the pandemic.
food was amazing and their outdoor/heated set up is great.
Excellent food and beverages, wonderful service, perfect ambience for these times. Highly recommend,
wonderful outdoor space, roof, three-sided tent and heat lamps. Food and staff were wonderful.
We had to dine outside because of covid and it was a bit chilly
Look, this restaurant, a favorite of ours since it opened, is making the best effort it can to make dining possible during the pandemic. We sat outside in a protected area with a heat lamp overhead and a plexiglass shield between our table and the one next. It was as good as it could be in 44 degree weather. It was brunch. Service was prompt and attentive. The burger was rare - French rare - the fries marvelous. Good Cabernet Sauvignon from Wash. Gotta eat fast, bring a stadium blanket, and hope for the vaccine.
We sat outside and the heater above of table was not functional. I wish the staff would have warned us before seating my girlfriend and I at this table. Order the gnocchi for an appetizer and that was great. My Lamb couscous was cooked well and tasted great. My girlfriend ordered the chicken entree and the potatoes she got were basically raw and not cooked at all. The rest of her meal was great. They eventually comped her meal because it took about 20 minutes to get her new potatoes so she was already done with her meal. I would go to the restaurant again and give it another try because everything about the food and atmosphere was good besides the potatoes mistake. They handled it as well as they could.
Great location and special service even in hard times
Great outdoor seating with heaters - Covid safe! Fast wonderful service. Two of us had the chicken - juicy and delicious. Two had lamb couscous. Yum. Three had a burger - just ok. Would definitely go again!
Jordan has served us a few times and he is amazing!
Wonderful place to sit have a good meal and relax. The service was excellent and in these difficult times a haven from stress
Great restaurant, great service, awesome food. We all loved it. Thanks, Jordan!
This was exactly the dining experience we were looking for! Heated outdoor dining with a festive charm. And delicious food! The gnocchi was outstanding. Best I’ve ever had.
Always a pleasure
One of my favorite restaurants anywhere! The steak tartar is perfect!
I made a reservation for a Birthday (yes it was also Christmas). When we were seated, it was FREEZING and the hanging heater was nowhere near us. We asked if we could be moved (there were many tables empty at that time with a roof covering). They said no, they were all booked up. That’s fine, but we just meant put us somewhere warmer- there were options at that time. But whatever. So then they did not have the main course we wanted on the Prix Fixe menu. Why did they not have any of that item?? It was only 5:30? Anyway, we chose another one which was upcharged. Then, after dessert I realized that there was no birthday surprise when I had specifically noted that when making my reservation. They did give us the birthday desserts so thats fine. But for the FREEZING, and subpar everything else- I just felt sad. We used to really like this place. Too bad they stayed open when some other phenomenal restaurants closed due to COVID.
Wonderful experience! We went for Christmas dinner. We ate outside at the front of the restaurant. We had a heater above and plexiglass separated the tables. The place was beautifully decorated and our waiter was fabulous.
Due to the pandemic, we were seated outdoors under a poorly heated tent. The food was very good, as always - however, the service was poor. The waiter barely came over to check to see if we needed anything; also, someone in my party accidently toppled her drink; instead of the waiter saying sorry or can I get you another one, the diner had to ask for another drink, to which he replied "You want another one?" I found the service to be amateurish and unprofessional. My pork chop was very good, as was my appetizer of mushroom ravioli. The "Buche de Noel" dessert was very ordinary: it was like a jellyroll filled with chocolate instead of jelly. Based on my past experiences, I would recommend Cafe d'Alsace to a friend.
Outdoor dining on Christmas Day. This place has done a fabulous job with its outdoor dining space and their indoor space is beautifully decorated for Christmas.
Our meals were outstanding. I fell in love with the warm vegetable salad. Our server was wonderful. A lovely presence, she worked very hard to make us comfortable and happy. Like all the servers, she worked so very hard going in and out of the restaurant.
Christmas Lunch was everything that we expected and more... always a great meal to be had here!
Celebrated Christmas dinner on their heated outdoor patio. The outdoor setup with dividers and ample space between tables made us feel safe and secure. The special menu offered several appetizer, entree and dessert choices. Can’t speak of the other choices but the onion soup, turkey and profiteroles were terrific.
Restaurant did a great job constructing outdoor space - including decor - and providing heaters.
They have great food here - better for brunch! And they have a great outdoor setup.
Best restaurant meal I’ve had in so long. The chicken was perfectly cooked, as was everything on the plate. Service was professional and they’ve done the best they can with the outdoor seating.
Very thoughtful service and a perfectly prepared steak.
Good solid French cuisine of the bistro variety. Prices reasonable. Staff has been
extremely helpful and attentive to customers, particularly under pandemic conditions.
Heated outside dining area particularly attractive.
Great experience at this restaurant! We sat outdoors with a heating lamp, and though it was a little brisk, the ambiance was still nice. Social distancing measures were better than I’ve seen at other restaurants, with plastic barriers and more than enough space between tables. The food itself was excellent from the appetizer all the way down to dessert. 5 stars!
We enjoyed a perfect evening dining outdoors at Cafe D'Alsace! Everything was delicious and we can't wait to return!
Perfect evening with delicious food and great service!
Magical place. Felt as if we had been transported to a cafe in Alsace-Lorraine. Wonderful food, wine and service.
I came here for lunch, so it wasn’t extremely busy, there was still a fair share amount of people however. The service was very friendly and everyone was very accommodating, the only problem is they weren’t all that attentive. It took a while until someone took our order even though we had been sitting there for a while and with my arms raised. My food came out too warm after a period of waiting, and they forgot to bring my coffee as well haha. The coffee was amazing and the staff was friendly though.
In this crazy time it’s terrific that Cafe d’Alsace has a fine outdoor setup for dining!
Lovely lunch outside with heat lamps.
Service was great and so was the food.
Nice outdoor seating, great wine list, delicious food
Great food and wonderful staff. Best outside dining set up I've seen.
Food itself was delicious and dessert was spectacular. I wish they had their regular menu but I get it was thanksgiving.
I love this place and would love to frequent it but it’s too pricey for me.
