    They need a coat rack. Booths are too small to accommodate coats and it takes away from the ambiance. They have a whole empty restaurant next door. Put a coat rack in it! That seems like an obvious for “WOW.”

    Excellent dinner out. Very tasty food and excellent service from Paul our waiter. The entree took a bit longer than it probably should have but it was a full restaurant. If not for that we would give 5 stars.

    Disappointed with quality of food, and server was pompous and tried to upsell every chance he could. Was not attentive, but arrived at table at times when portions were complete. Two other servers removed our dishes. The worst part is we were there for our anniversary, and we were in and out within 40 minutes. There was no time to enjoy our experience. In fact we went elsewhere for dessert where we could relax and enjoy.

    Overflow seating vs regular restaurant seating is dramatically different, overflow side makes it seem like a rather cheap restaurant. Food is okay considering price compared to quality Waiter was excellent.

    This restaurant desires to be an authentic Italian restaurant but needs more context on what Italian food and culture translates to in a different context. As a prior resident of Northern Italy for four years, the food, service, and environment of Alena lacked openness, perspective, flavor, and was overly priced. I ate at the Keg and felt it was a more authentic in service than this restaurant. My suggestion is for this restaurant is to take time to visit Italy (North or South) observe, taste, and understand how “authentic”, “rustic”, and “Italian” intersect in the context of Canada. Soul searching needed.

    Service by Crystal was fabulous. She was very attentive without being intrusive. Focaccia was super. I feel the house salad could have had a zestier dressing but I like flavourful salads and this one was very bland. Wild boar chops were beautifully seasoned and tender. Arctic char special was very enjoyable. The filet was generous. Roasted potatoes and grilled veggies were decent. Wine we chose was terrific. All in all a good evening.

    The food was less than par….. from appetizers to mains, the food was boring and under seasoned. Ambiance was nice, service was good, just the food was lacking.
