Great food, great service and very accommodating staff.
We have dined at the Alcove on many occasions. The food is always excellent.
The service has always been outstanding. The wait staff are always very courteous and helpful. We have our favorites but all the staff is very good.
The food was wonderful and our waiter was outstanding!!
Could not have asked for a better 30th wedding anniversary dinner!!! The food was outstanding.
Sarah waited on us and she did an outstanding job. We will be back and I will ask to be seated in her area.
Thank you for the dessert.
Gorgeous decor, excellent entrees, excellent service.
Delicious food and beautiful atmosphere
Delightful and delicious as usual. We try to stop once or twice a week.
We had a very pleasant lunch with friends at the Alcove. The food was superb. The staff was friendly and efficient. We definitely hope to dine here again when we are in the area.
The occasion was Easter and we were not disappointed. We dine about twice a month at the Alcove and have never been disappointed.
The facility is beautiful and the food excellent. Such a gem in a somewhat dreary downtown. Hopefully the area will continue to grow and the downtown area will find some new life. Would definitely eat here again if we visit Mt.Vernon...worth the money.
The Alcove is one of the best restaurants in central Ohio. Brock and his staff go above and beyond with service, presentation, and cuisine. Best Prime Rib I have ever had.
It was simply wonderful. Our waitress was really nice, and was very prompt.
Very pleasant experience. Everyone from the hosts to the servers were very friendly and accommodating.
Good food in a friendly, comfortable atmosphere. Had 4 male college students with us and they went away satisfied. Very friendly service.
Had dinner in the bar for more of a casual night out. The food is usually very good here but the buttermilk chicken sandwich was a disappointment. The coating on the chicken did not adhere to the meat making it very messy. Th pickles on the sandwich were placed on the bottom half of the bun which made it soggy and falling apart also. I ended up eating it with a fork and knife which is not a desirable way to eat a sandwich.
Great service, great meals. Everyone in our party of 6 enjoyed their meals.
The service is really what stood out. The pecan encrusted trout was delicious!
We went to the Alcove for our very first date more than 30 years ago, and usually return every year on our wedding anniversary. This year, however, we were a bit apprehensive because the restaurant had undergone a complete renovation and menu change since the last time we were there, and we were concerned that our "special place" might no longer be so special.
We needn't have worried, as the owners did a WONDERFUL job of remodeling, while maintaining the same quietly elegant atmosphere. The new menu is wonderful. I ordered the ribeye, listed at 14 oz., I believe, and it was thick, tender, and cooked to perfection. Much larger portion than typically seen for a 14 ounce steak in other restaurants. Similarly, my wife had the salmon, and it was an extremely generous serving, and she loved it. Our side dishes were also excellent, as were the freshly baked rolls.
Consequently, we really were too full for dessert, but since I had listed on our reservation that it was our anniversary, our server convinced us, as dessert would be "on-the-house". We ordered a strawberry mousse/ice cream concoction that we intended to share, but our server returned with TWO portions. It was delicious, and nicely marked with an edible chocolate "Happy Anniversary" piece of candy on top.
We were absolutely thrilled with the new look and their new menu, the service was excellent, and the food was delicious. We hope to be dining there at LEAST once a year for several more decades and recommend it most highly.
Such a wonderful place to have in Mount Vernon. Delicious food - wonderful service!
No bar seats available. Taken up by children. Odd ordering an appetizer for two and receiving only three pieces. Service was slow with too many tables per waitress. Entrees were good, nice cocktail list. Feel it was a bit over priced.
Very accommodating to our large party seating request.
Was good food. Not sure it is worth a premium price. It lacked a “wow” factor. We will be back from time to time as there is no other place like it in town.
A nice surprise out in rural Ohio. We will be back for dinner.
Great atmosphere. The Alcove is a classy place. The Gourmet Cheeseburger is our favorite, but the menu has something for everyone. We always enjoy our evening!
The food was absolutely amazing!! The best seafood I have experienced in years. The service was fantastic from start to finish!!! We will most certainly be going back and bringing our friends and family. So glad we found this little gem....our new favorite place for sure!! Can't wait to go back!!
Great food, great atmosphere.
We enjoyed ourselves. The food was good and the service was really good.
Great dinner, variety of meals ordered, everyone raved over the food.
It was lovely as always!
Incredible food. Live music. Fantastic atmosphere for a special night.
As always the Alcove food and atmosphere was amazing. We went for Valentine's day so it was very nice. My only gripe was i never got my drink i ordered, which I was kinda disappointed about for the level I expect out of the Alcove which is perfection. I never said anything, just had water all night. Everything else was amazing of course.
Beautiful! Love the Alcove but miss the signature rolls & asparagus crab soup!!!
We were very impressed and can't wait to return . Everything was perfect the server's the food was great also we have never received a more fresher salad then this very crispy and the dressing was just great . Difenitly have recommended this place to several of our friends.THANK YOU .for making us fill comfortable and special .
As always, The Alcove is the best in our area. We are so fortunate to have such an elegant restaurant. I had the scallops, done to perfection. Thank you again for a wonderful evening.
Our server Bridget was excellent. Food was also good.
Another great experience. Top service, delicious food, (salmon +), loved the pecan chocolate ice cream dessert. + table setup, rooms provide a great venue for family or social group gathering.
After seeing this restaurant listed on Open Table’s monthly top 10, we decided to try it. The Alcove is a pleasant surprise, elegant yet casual. The food was delicious, the atmosphere very tasteful and the service was great! We will certainly return.
Wonderful meal, although our visit got off to a bad start. The hostess said there was a short wait and told us we could wait in the bar. We ordered drinks, finished them and, after about a half-hour, still hadn't been seated. I finally went back to the hostess to ask about our table and she had forgotten about us. She apologized and seated us.
We have been to the renovated Alcove several times and have been very pleased. This evening, however, we were seated at a round table for five, with only four of us, which made it inconvenient for talking and service. Our dinners were very good, especially the Oysters Rockafeller- so delicate and delicious. My friend and I also really enjoyed our Bookworm cocktails. Food wise, I would say the rolls are the weakest point-not memorable at all. Our overall experience was good except for our seating, which was made with a reservation for four.
This was a real find! The food was great, the service was attentive and friendly, and the price was very fair. We intend to re-visit often.
