    We had the paella and it was so salty that it was barely edible.

    They said we dont have a reservation even tho we showed all the confirmations and reservation from Opentable. They said there is nothing they can do. We asked nicely since it was a friday night in ny and we were hungry. They made us sit outside in the freezing cold even tho they had empty tables inside. Horrible experience. If the partnership with Opentable is not working then remove the connection. Never wanna have this bad experience ever again.

    Great service, excellent food! The paella had huge shrimp and just the right mix of spices, olives, etc. It's easy to get paella wrong (too oily, too salty) but these guys hit the mark. Hotel Alba is really pretty as well. Have a drink at the pool before hand and then play a game of foosball before you leave. Free valet too. We'll be back

    Unfortunately, we did not eat here. Our reservation was made for 11a but they stop serving breakfast at 10:30a and don't open again until 11:30a. Clearly there was some error that allowed for reservations to be made at 11. Maybe next time we will actually be able to try out their food.

    The food was sad. Charcuterie board was sloppily presented and products were not fresh. Gambas were salty. Pork belly was one note. Two waiters waited on us and asked us the same questions. Hope they can make things better.

    First, I had to rate FOOD and VALUE otherwise I couldn’t proceed to the next step. I cannot rate both above because I DID NOT STAY to eat. When we got there, I couldn’t find any staff on the reception desk, restaurant nor the bar across the hall. I went back to the valet to ask if he knew where anyone were and he didn’t know. I walked over to the hotel’s front desk past the bar and they did not know either. I walked back to the restaurant and ran into the rest of my group(5people) who looked as baffled as me. I asked the other people eating (2 tables) and shared they had not seen anyone in a while. We still decided to sit and wait. Finally, as we were getting up to leave a waiter shows up with menus on hand. His welcome greeting was “ here are the menus if you decide to stay”. For as dead the Restaurant was I would be falling over my feet trying to keep this 6 people ticket but we did not feel welcome. I tried to cancel the reservation on the app which told me to call the restaurant directly. Twice I called and the phone rang unanswered for long time. I did find the decor of the Restaurant quite clean, modern and cool. The bar across the hall as well. Great design and decoration and wouldn’t mind having a party in such elegant space. Needs SPANIARD (😁) background music and better trained staff first. I wish them well but it will be a long time before I try them again.

    The SpaniardResponded on August 7, 2019Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to leave us detailed feedback on your most recent experience with us.
