Another excellent family-style restaurant, with a menu featuring seasonally inspired dishes. Fun atmosphere, and impeccable service.Foursquare - September 2017
Casual setting for a Michelin star restaurant. Delicious food. Good service. Make a reservation before going.GooglePlace - August 2017
Steak, baby greens, beef tartare were all very good but I expected more from some of the other dishes. The grilled fish was boring. Felt like just lightly salted. The green bean casserole was deconstructed. Was not what I expected. Pasta was fresh but too acidic for me. Some sugar would have helped. Overall the food wasn't bad but if I was paying over 100 USD per person I would expect it to be better. GooglePlace - August 2017
You'll probably like Al's Place if you enjoy light vegetarian meals that are shared among the table. Think -- expensive light tapas. I ordered one of the few proteins, the brisket, but I wasn't a big fan. The brisket was more 'fancy' than tasty. The server recommended we get 6 mains ($18-30 each) and 2 sides ($10-20 each) to satisfy a table of 4. That was an expensive 'meh' meal. I'd prefer to grill a burger at home.GooglePlace - August 2017
It's rare that food can surprise you. You might have something new, you might have something that reminds you of a new riff on an old favorite but it's not often you'll have something where you're struggling to place a taste. AL's will give you that feeling. What's this flavor that I've literally never had? What's this...thing that I have no reference for?
Go and be happy.GooglePlace - July 2017
Creative and surprisingly satisfying vegetable-focused dishes with seasonal ingredients. Tasting menu was delicious!Foursquare - July 2017
Even better than I remembered. The steak (off menu) is unbelievable. Lettuce cups are not to be missed. Ditto for pickle fries. Basically just eat everything.Foursquare - July 2017

THE CURRY IS DIVINE.Foursquare - April 2017
Excellent restaurant and super busy - reserve if you wanna go there, otherwise you most likely have to wait a while.
I like the concept of ordering a bunch of dishes that come in three major categories Snacks, Cold/Cool, Warm/Hot and Limited Availability that might or might not be available. You are supposed to order a few plates from every section, and everybody at the table shares all the yummy food.
You can also order Family Style, where the chef sends you out a good selection - Yummy!
Only caveat: we asked our waiter for a wine recommendation and she clearly had no idea... Not sure if that applies to all staff. Other than that: A definite GO!GooglePlace - April 2017
Get the family style fixed price menu! Delicious and imaginative food and drinks!Foursquare - March 2017
Of course it is pricey but we loved it! The chef's menu was the perfect choice (it is a fair bit of food, have a light lunch if you're going to do it). The wine prices was surprisingly reasonable.Foursquare - March 2017
Delicious and delicate food, a bit expensive and crowded but really good food.Foursquare - March 2017

Very hip crowd, delicious innovative vegetarian cuisine. The cooking reminded me of Girl & the Goat in Chicago with its adventurous use of ingredients, condiments & spices.Foursquare - January 2017
Their menu is seasonal but the coconut curry we had in the summer was incredible!Foursquare - January 2017
