The food was very good! And the space and atmosphere fun and relaxing. The problem was the service. While kind, the servers were not very knowledge about the food or wine menu, the timing of the arrival of the courses was off and the service was slow. We had to ask for our check after more than half an hour after finishing our meal and the restaurant was not busy.
Need to work on the service. I know it was a busy night but we ate most of our meal without silverware and couldn't track the guy down.
First time in since remodel. It was sooo good. Great wine list. Everyone was so nice. Service was excellent
Meh...Went for brunch because we were stuck at Atlantic Station for a couple hours. Menu was extremely limited. I was brought luke-warm coffee. Food was OK. Service was OK . I certainly wouldn’t make any effort to return.
The crab meat bruschetta was a nice take on traditional. It wasn’t phenomenal, but was refreshing nonetheless. The margherita pizza was great— fresh, authentic, and flavorful.
Exceptional food. Absolutely loved the homemade pasta dishes. Reminded us of restaurants in Rome. Straightforward, top quality ingredients. Simple but elegant preparation. Pasta cooked to perfection. We’ll be back!
Our server, Dan, was awesome. However, the restaurant did not have adequate serves staffed so Dan became overwhelmed quickly. The place was freezing inside with temps in the 20s. We ate with our coats on. The food was decent but my pasta was dry as a bone and the veg lasagna was all eggplant instead of squash and zucchini. Would go back because of Dan's great service in spite of management giving him too many tables to wait on, but won't go back because of the food, ambiance and lack of comfortability.
Great food and service. I highly recommend the rigatoni! The pasta is homemade and delicious!
Christmas brunch was very good and our server Dan was very pleasant and funny. He crafted a personalized drink fit for the occasion.
We had Christmas Eve reservations and were hoping for a lovely dinner. We were very disappointed! The atmosphere was cold and the hostess, who doubled as our server, seemed very disinterested in us and never asked my husband for his drink order. The menu was extremely limited, (we later learned that we were given the lunch menu!) and they do not have a children's menu. They would accommodate the children with a pasta dish at $12.95. We had two drinks and ended up leaving for a restaurant with a more extensive menu.
We weren't impressed by Allora. The roasted artichoke was tough and chewy - hard to swallow. The chicken plate wasn't bad but wasn't amazing either. It claimed to have lemon and rosemary jus but I couldn't detect any. My date's fish plate was similarly good-but-nothing-special and not terrifically flavorful. Neither plate was worth the price paid.
It was a Christmas date for an ASO show so we were both disappointed. Fortunately, the Symphony was wonderful. We'll return to the ASO but not to Allora. Overpriced & under-flavored.
It was great, however, even though we were allowed to make a 4:00 reservation, they weren't technically serving dinner at that time. They accommodated us, but an obvious update is needed to the reservations to sync them with their hours.
My husband and I were very excited to try this restaurant but left feeling dissapointed by the food and service. The food was fine but nothing we didn’t feel we could have made ourselves at home which is why I consider it to be overpriced. Most of the tables were empty at 8:00 PM on a Friday so we only found it a little odd that the host was also our waiter. We ordered Bruschetta and received Burrata and the entrees arrived before the staff swapped the appetizer out. The restaurant was out of two different types of wines I selected from the menu. Towards the end, the waiter/host brought the wrong entrees out to us, which I find it hard to mess up an order when there were so few tables occupied. Once we received our check, no items had been comped for their mistakes and no apologies were made. Unfortunately I do not see us going back to Allora.
Four of my girlfriends and I have an annual holiday dinner each year and this was our first time having it at Allora. We will definitely be returning. The service was excellent. All of our meals were served hot and to order. The presentation was excellent. The atmosphere is perfect for a date night, or, any occasion. We all recommend highly.
While she was extremely sweet, it was apparent that our server was very inexperienced. There were 8 people in our party for an after work happy hour of drinks and appetizers and she seemed very overwhelmed. She had difficulty bringing out more than 2 drinks at a time, the bottle of wine we ordered came after the food arrived and although she provided a taste to the person ordering the wine, she forgot to fill his glass after pouring a glass for the others. Overall the experience was fine and we'd definitely go back. However, I would recommend to management to be sure and properly train the staff before putting them in from of patrons.
I made a reservation for 6 people but they had it noted for 4 people, but we were seated fairly quickly after making the adjustment. Server must have been new and therefore service was extremely slow. They do not offer any bread or snacks and our meals were extremely slow to come out so we were starving. They do not have many vegetarian options, and do no make accommodations. We ordered a bottle of wine and one of us ordered the porcini ravioli dish but then 15 minutes after placing those orders we were notified they had ran out of those two items. When asking how large the pizza portions were, the server said they were "large" but they were most definitely personal pans. Nothing was taken off our bill for our many inconveniences. Overall, was pretty disappointed with this meal and restaurant.
The food was amazing and our waiter was very attentive and experienced.
Great food, wonderful service! The bruschetta was incredible; as were our entrées (branzino and flank steak). Daniel took excellent care of us. We'll be back the next time we're at Atlantic Station.
Delicious! My family and I dined at Allora a few days after it reopened. The service was fantastic, and the food was as well. I ate the Kale Salad with the Lemon Saffron Pasta - SO good! Casey was our server and was a gem!
