    Sat outside, which is fun but dress warmly for May evenings. The food was excellent but the wine list by the glass could use some unusual additions. The choices were good, but they were fairly common regions that didn't allow for much exploration.

    Was a fantastic experience. My wife and I sat at the bar where we were entertained all night watching multitude of drinks being prepared by the sensational bar team. Service was superb. They made great suggestions and were very attentive. The food was extraordinary and delicious. Will definitely be dining with them again. See you next time!

    Fuscilli pasta was super salty. I ate very little of it. The pork chop was very peppery. Service was excellent.

    We have been to Alo Bar before and it is still outstanding! The service and food are excellent. The one complaint we had was, that it was too noisy we had a hard time hearing each other talking. Loved, loved, loved the dessert, Millefieulle, the best I have ever had

    Excellent food and service! We enjoyed virtually everything we ordered, with special kudos to the lobster bites, fois gras parfait, oysters and Iberico pork chop. Cocktails were good, water was replenished regularly. Vibe was pretty cool, with a wide range of customers. Overall, an excellent time!

    Made us wait for 25mins past our reservation time. Server was serving half the restaurant so barely had time to come to us. Busboys(busgirls) had poor attitude and poured tap water into our sparkling water then instead of replacing with a complementary bottle or apologizing, she just got a new glass and poured into it. The manager seems to be a Scottish/Irish woman who instead of offering us complimentary drinks while we waited or any other way to apologize for the long wait, she just asked if we wanted to BUY drinks and drink it at the DOOR. She was rude and inconsiderate. Definitely not up to the job.

    The setting and ambiance are very nice as always, unfortunately the food was quite disappointing this time in regards to the quality in terms of flavors and some dishes being overpowered by the quantity of sauce (wedge salad, parpadelle), salt and amount of fat in the pasta sauce (parpadelle).

    We were here about half year ago, we were very satisfied with overall experience and went back there expect the same. The food, while still very good, feels like just a notch below what we had last time. And the service feels uneven, while one girl lives up to the old standard, the other seemed rushed and 2 notch below what we had. It was a mixed experience for us this time.

    The food was good, especially the steak! The service was very poor. I ordered a glass of sparkling wine to pair with my appetizer, oysters. It never came. When our mains were brought to the table no one offered salt and pepper. I had to call over our waiter to order a glass of wine and ask for salt, for my fries. By the time the salt was brought to the table I was finished with my meal. We will not be going back. Very unfortunate as we were looking forward to a wonderful meal.
