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 license Foursquare - 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
