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.

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
