This was the most wonderful culinary experience I've had all year! I had the tasting menu and they even did a special version for me that was vegetarian. I also had the wine pairing and the selections were impeccably well chosen.GooglePlace - March 2018
Al's Place was as the servers say a reverse version of a steak house. We ordered the chef's taster's menu.
Lots of greens - super fresh and fun twists, great presentation, very creative.
Service was friendly and very knowledgeable but kind of in their own world.
Dessert interestingly was full of flavor and way different from the menu of greens - full of fat. yummy.
I really want to rate this place 3.5 for these reasons -- we felt rushed with plates coming out, there was not 1 item from the "sides" section which was the "meat" section, and a bit pricey for vegetables.
Definitely worth a try and be open to the greens menu.GooglePlace - February 2018
Get the yellow wax bean stew and smoked trout. The drinks are a little strange and difficult to drunk as they don’t have a proper liquor licenseFoursquare - February 2018
Intriguing combinations, exciting flavors, fresh ingredients. We ordered the set menu. Some of the dishes are a risky "experiment" but I personally enjoyed everything (e.g. i loved the brine-pickled fries but my husband was disappointed to have that dish served in a starred restaurant). Service was impeccable. Atmosphere was casual and fun.GooglePlace - January 2018
Al's Place lives up to the hype - Brine Pickled Fries, Chickpeas a la Catalan, Trout + Crispy Potato, Black Lime Cod drenched in Sunchoke Curry.Foursquare - January 2018
Food delicious. Service would only rate 2 stars. They want you to eat very quickly and bring out the many plates ordered all at one time -even if you ask for a slow down. I would only order a couple of dishes and then place your order for the next few. Don’t let them intimidate you.GooglePlace - January 2018
The fastest tasting menu experience I have ever had. It’s started with a variety of snacks. After taking a couple bites, the first course came out. My wife and I started to work on both of them but a few minutes later the second course came out. The tiny table was cluttered with plates and this became the theme of the evening. We got so full from all the food coming out so fast that I honest can’t say whether or not I liked any of the following dishes. We also had the wine pairings and by the end there were 6 glasses of wine sitting on the table because we could not keep up the pace.
Immediately after serving dessert we were greeted with the check and the coats we had checked. The waiter told us they were doing this as a courtesy and to not feel rushed but I totally felt rushed.
I have no idea how they can think that this is acceptable.GooglePlace - January 2018

Definitely worth doing the tasting menu - so many yummy veggiesFoursquare - October 2017
Vegetarian food can be super exciting. Voted one of the Top 5 new restaurants in America by Bon Appetite in 2016 I believe. They always look full but you can get a table around 9PM pretty easily.Foursquare - October 2017
Love this place. The tasting menu was divine, service excellent, and great wine. Vegetables rule the menu, but embrace it because they are dope! (There is meat though!)Foursquare - October 2017
Amazing food. Just amazing. Vegetarian heavy dinners and you won’t even notice that.Foursquare - September 2017
Great service and cool space. Don't get me wrong, the food was good (and, to their credit, actually quite reasonable), but not memorableFoursquare - September 2017
Another excellent family-style restaurant, with a menu featuring seasonally inspired dishes. Fun atmosphere, and impeccable service.Foursquare - September 2017
Steak tartare, pork belly, and chilled green bean casserole!Foursquare - August 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
