    Alice offers ambience, attentive service, exquisitely well thought out and executed food. Hands down this was one of the best meals of my life. Big thanks to the chefs/creators/front of house for such a magical experience. I will be back

    Absolutely wonderful Field menu. You do not miss the meat at all in these hearty and well balanced dishes. Maybe a slight over use of charring as a flavour vehicle, became overwhelming by the last savoury course. Both the juice and wine pairings were great! Highly recommend checking out this up and coming GEM

    The ambience and feel of the place is very intimate and welcoming. We felt very taken care of and always had our glasses full without needing to ask. The staff were exceptionally knowledgeable about all the products served throughout. 10/10 best vegan restaurant I’ve ever experienced, actually best restaurant, period.

    We love Alice. My spouse and I go there once a year (at least) for our anniversary. We had our first date at Café my House before Brianna Kim moved to the new location, Alice. My husband is a vegan, I am not but I LOVE going here and it is always worth it. Each item is full of a myraid of distinct tastes that are never dullin flavor. We always tell our family and friends that it is not only a beautiful dinner, it is an experience. The wine pairing is always on point and gives the opportunity to try new wines as well as ciders, sake and other types of drinks. Before they pandemic they also had a creative mixed drink menu, hopefully it will come back someday! I strongly recommend everyone tries it out if they enjoy good food. Thank you as always for a beautiful evening!

    It's an amazing small restaurant on Adeline, just off Rochester, a literal and conceptual stone's throw away from Atelier. Chef Briana Kim has applied the same playful, creative approach to confect an eight-course vegetarian extravaganza of small delights, with brilliant wine and non-alcoholic pairings as an option. Highly recommended for vegetarians and carnivores alike.

    From start to finish the dining experience was not only about the food but every detail. The friendly staff were very well trained and knowledgeable in the food and drinks that were served in our blind tasting menu. Highly recommend the wine pairing for the complete experience. So excited for next season’s menu.

    Unexpected simple, clean pleasing interior. Each of the 6 or 7 staff members who served us were pleasant, knowledgeable and very helpful. Each dish was beautifully presented and 6 of the courses were fabulous; two were less so, given a very strong taste. My wife chose the wine pairing and found them tasty but overall unsure whether she needed it, given the overall dining experience which included a mixture of teas served with a couple of the courses. Every dish and each wine and beverage were presented with a precise and very informative verbal History. Although a small thing to some I was mildly upset to have been charged $5 for a coffee when I was paying $150 for a fixed menu. Overall we enjoyed Alice very much and would recommend them highly as a special occasion destination. Bravo Chef Briana!!

    Simply wonderful. Amazing attention to detail- service, plating, cutlery, uniqueness and every ingredient in the dish. The flavours are outstanding. I won’t shy away if you are not a “vegetarian” because it is one of the best meals we have had, period, and we have eaten at many Michelin star restaurants. We will definitely go back.
