Dined with friends at Allium which offered below mediocre food, selection and wine offerings. Staff seemed uninterested and aloof; no atmosphere whatsoever. Food quality was poor and seasonings were inconsistent. There are many other better option, less costly. Not recommended.

Fantastic dinner! The duck breast was amazing, as were the whole trout and burger! We loved the rustic modern atmosphere. Gorgeous lighting!

Allium has really upped its game and become a great place for dinner. The service is always excellent and the food has become consistently interesting and good with a menu that changes often. The bar scene is lively and friendly with great drinks. The popcorn is addictive. It's a lovely place to stop in after a movie around the corner.... More

Allium has amazing food, I've been there two times and have been thoroughly impressed each time. The most recent time I got dinner and had their mussels in a white wine and tomato sauce, which was amazing. Perfect serving size. The restaurant itself has a very nice aesthetic and looks beautiful. Definitely recommend! It's in the medium price range towards... More

My teenage daughter and I wanted a nice dinner out and most of our favorite places were packed with families after skiing. We didn't want a noisy, packed restaurant; so, we decided on Allium (which tends to not have families with young kids due to the menu choices) and they had a table available. The hostess was friendly and inviting... More

We came here with the family, there were 9 of us. It was one of the few restaurants that took reservations. The food was good. The kale salad was great as was the fried pickled onions. The steak was ordered by most of the group and it was nicely done. Although the marinade was too strong for the kids. The... More

I go here often to enjoy the bar..and the truffle popcorn. The bartenders make great margaritas, and the popcorn is to die for. I have never sat down for dinner here, but I have ordered apps and have not been disappointed. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a nice dinner to anyone wanting to go out for a... More

This was our second visit to allium, the first almost a year ago. As before, we found the place welcoming, warm, comfortable and relaxing. Tonight, we had fried chickpeas with Bombay spice, hen of the woods mushrooms, and steam buns with pork belly from the small plates menu; and house-made tagliatelle from the large plates menu. All were excellent. The... More

After having read the reviews, I wanted to see wanted to see what they were all about! Made a reservation and was immediately seated at the proper time. The restaurant was about 50% full. As I wear a jacket and tie every day, I was, perhaps a bit dressed down in a hoodie and jeans. The first table they took... More
