Downstairs cafe was a great place to meet up for a business meeting and grab coffee. Could have a private conversation. Wait staff didn’t rush you along, but appeared timely with the check when you were ready to depart.

Our server, Matt, was excellent - friendly, attentive, good recommendations. Overall the service was great. They were very flexible when we needed to adjust the size of our reservation before a casual happy hour/dinner and on the day.

Wine was great; food pretty good but not outstanding.

I wish they did less cake and more food in their afternoon tea! Too much cake for one person and only two tiny finger sandwiches!

Girlfriends celebrating the thanksgiving holiday with lunch and pedicures after we’re disappointed the food available was either breakfast or high team at 3pm on a Friday.
Our poor server was only a day on the job and the bar seemed perplexed by our drink order: Cabernet doesn’t sound like Chardonnay, veuve cliquot should not be flat, and Pinot noir should not be Pinot Grigio. Usually love this place but this time it was off its game. And for $167 for 3 so Without tip— that is a shame.

It was on Thanksgiving. I thought I was booking Thanksgiving dinner but after arriving I found out that it didn’t start till 2 o’clock and our reservation was at 12 noon. But Erika the manager of the bar was super awesome she comped our whole brrunch because we were disappointed it wasn’t Thanksgiving dinner everything was amazing she gave us free champagne and they couldn’t of been nicer I will definitely go there again.. And the food was delicious

It was my girlfriends birthday. The afternoon tea was a memorable service to experience on a special day like this.
Thank you for the ice cream with a candle at the end for that special touch for us.

Had some friends out of town over the weekend. Took them to Allis for a nice brunch. We got the smoke salmon tower and avocado toast. All amazing. Love the decoration.

The Allis is definitely in a prime location & everyone wants to have some involvement with SoHo house, however the service for non members (assuming it's better for members upstairs) is lacking. Our waitress was very hard to flag down. The food, however, is delicious. Strongly recommend the Baked Eggs, as those are flavorful and the sourdough bread compliments it well.

We enjoyed our visit. The food was good and we couldn't even finish. I did have some thoughts, however. The sandwiches were good, but the fillings were too thin. With so many sweets, I felt I needed more protein! My other idea was that the sweets needed more variety, as so many items were lemon -- lemon poppyseed tea bread, lemon tarts, and tart frosting, and lemony cream puff filling. The gingerbread macarons were a pleasant change, along with the lovely chocolate cake.

Me and a girlfriend celebrated our birthdays here and the staff was accomodating and friendly. The food was outstanding. Prices were not bad for the lunch special given the ambiance. It is a beautiful space.

Like what they've done to this space! more attractive now than the first floor lobby, the bar looks like a good place for dining solo. Steak Frites was a great value. Service was good but then server disappeared and we had to wave the one other server down for more wine, then water, then dessert menu and even the check. Kind of a bummer when trying to relax.

The lights were dimmed quite early, leaving us sitting in almost darkness while drinking tea. I think it was a little too early to lower the lights by that much. Nevertheless, the afternoon tea and desserts were amazing!

I usually love this place, but the last two experiences have been really subpar. Eggs were overcooked, and breakfast took forever. Server was not sympathetic to our poor experience.

Ambiance and customer base were great, food was good, drinks were a tad on the expensive side relative to the quality but overall, a great Friday night date spot.

Relaxing, ambient place to eat. We only had breakfast. It was fine but nothing special. The eggs Benedict were a bit sloppy—over-sauced, too thick of a sauce, and eggs were over cooked. But the overall value was still good, especially for Soho House. In some cities, you can’t even enter unless you are a high-paying member.
