    Great food and attentive service with a smile. Generous portions. I got two “small” that were by no means small! It was energeticly noisy, but that didn’t bother me. Great experience overall and I highly recommend. Thanks, Aliment!

    Delicious variety of fresh American food! Close by to Cheaper than Therapy Comedy Club. Service was good! Very nice people. We were almost 15 minutes late to our 11 person reservation but they were very accommodating and sat us right away. They have dining upstairs and we had the room to ourselves which was a nice unexpected surprise. Reasonably priced as well. Win, win, win!

    Excellent service especially from Rachel who is also a mixologist especial! Mango spicy margarita was yummy! Food was great - Brussels sprouts amazing. Mussels were good but not a huge fan of the tomato based sauce (I’m a more traditional kind of guy). Very welcoming place — would def go back again!

    Dinner last night night was tasty. Service is good. But we strained to hear each other across the table. That’s just two feet! There is a lot of bar noise and one server, unfortunately, liked to yell across the dining room

    We were looking for a restaurant with outdoor seating where we could eat before the early start to the play at the Curran Theater. Aliment was the perfect solution - it is just a quick 5-10minute walk downhill to the theater. We were thrilled to find the comprehensive menu, excellent food, and outstanding service. The outdoor seating area is very comfortable and spacious. It is helpful that reservations are available, and that dinner service begins early enough to allow for a leisurely meal before a performance. We will definitely return to this restaurant!

    We had an awful experience here last night. We had tickets for the Masonic so made a reservation for 5. We travelled from San Jose. We needed an outdoor table as one of my friends is immunocompromised and needed to sit outside due to covid risk. I called the restaurant several days before the booking to request an outdoor table and also included the request in the online booking. When we arrived we were told outdoor tables were not guaranteed despite a booking and that we would have to wait for one to free up. I asked if we could split the group - 2 outside and 3 inside - and was told no. So utterly disappointing. After much stress we finally found another restaurant down the street who happily sat us outside, provided us with wonderful service and ensured we had our food in time so we could make our show. I’ll never return to Aliment because of this poor customer service - no apology, no empathy and no willingness to rectify the situation shown by the manager.

    Great location with a chill bistro vibe. I had dinner for two with a friend that kicked off with great cocktails , then a simple 3-course of shared salad, pasta and ice cream. Every course was spectacular and didn't disappoint. The server was engaging and responsive (and had a great sense of humor). I will definitely return when in the Nob Hill area.

    We had an incredible time at Alimentary. Our server Joey was attentive, but not too intrusive and we had a very pleasant time meeting with our friend who flew in from Canada and New Zealand. A very small but hip place in union square. Definitely would recommend for any occasion, and the Brussels or outs were amazing! The drinks were delicious and very reasonably priced, just an all around too notch place to have a drink and have some good eats.

    We enjoyed our food -- chicken wings, truffle fries, root veggies and rack of lamb -- though it seemed a bit pricey for what it was. It got rather loud when the place filled up. Still, a good place to eat before a show at the Masonic.

    Food came out in 30 minutes. Drinks arrived after food somehow. Food was wrong even though we had no substitutions. Buns were stale. Check was wrong bc they added a drink that never came. Came here for our one year anniversary of our first date, also at Aliment. Will not be coming back for year 2. Oh yeah, When I said we’d prefer to sit inside like our reservation stated, which we were on time for. The host told us “patience is a virtue.” What the heck?!
