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.

Gorgeous place, the food itself is a little underwhelming and the menu is pretty small, but the service and atmosphere more than make up for it

Eggs were wrong, then cold. Pastries came last. Never got a warmer on coffee. Drinks took forever.

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.

I like the Allis for the ambiance. Sometimes the food / staff is hit or miss with hot food and service respectively. I would recommend giving it a shot for lunch/brunch!

Food didnt quite match the drinks and atmosphere. Appetizers much better than entrees. Steak frites very chewy and grainy. Fries were extra salty also. Very sub par for $27

This is my second time here. Before I was pretty like this place since it's a good choice for hanging out with friends, spending afternoon time. This time is not very pleasant. There were tiny flies staying around our food all the time. But the staff there was acting like seeing nothing. It's a 60 bucks afternoon tea but they just can't make sure that we were staying in a clean and tidy place. If I could give a zero star I would.

Came here for an early brunch with girlfriends. Service was a bit slow but our server admitted she was new so we were patient. We were a little surprised that the “house pressed” juice was actually bottled juice and not freshly juiced. Would pass on that portion of the menu but the food and brunch mimosas were delicious! Will definitely come back.

I’ve been to the Allis before and the food has been absolutely delicious. On this visit I ordered crab toast and the Burrata. The crab was just so-so. I was seated on the less cozy lower level up against the front door so the ambiance was a bit lacking. Waitresses were nice but not at all attentive. That would have been my biggest criticism. I was there for 3 1/2 hours and the service was incredibly slow. Overall, it was fine but not on par with past visits.

Top 3 worst service experiences ever. No one addressed us for 15 min upon arrival, and we had a reservation time we arrived early for. Once seated, it took 25 min to get afternoon tea and snacks. Beautiful place, but awful service and subpar food. Disappointing.

we went for brunch early so that the patio was available and there was very little hassle. Our server Alina was helpful and attentive and she made some very good recommendations. I had the Allis breakfast with whole grain bread (which is baked by them). All the components of this dish were done perfectly and the result was a pleasant start to my day. My wife had the smoked salmon bagel. The lox for her dish and mine was some of the tastiest and fresh I have ever had and they do not skimp on quantity. This place is on notice for our repeat visit.
