If you're looking for a beautiful place for a brunch, drinks, or meal in New Rochelle, without spending a great deal you probably would be hard pressed to find something better. Especially if you like southern food and are not in a great hurry. Generally, the service is very good but leisurely, although when I've said I was in a... More

I recently moved to new rochelle from more northern westchester and Alvin's is one of the pleasant things about it. It has a great ambiance, the matisse-like paintings on the wall are all painted by the owner. High ceilings, classy decor, and live jazz nights all make this place stand out. I have never been there when the owner has... More

Loved the ambiance, the artwork and music was lovely. Their brunch shrimp with grits and their mimosas were great. The service fantastic. We overtayed our brunch and ended up staying for dinner.

We chose Alvin and Friends for dinner to celebrate our anniversary based on the type of cuisine and some positive reviews I'd heard from acquaintances. We were very disappointed in our experience, especially from a service perspective. We ordered drinks (just 2 glasses of wine) and sparkling water. Our appetizers came out well before we received anything to drink. We... More

Arrived Sunday after the brunch was ending (will have to come back). We did have lunch and the food was tasty and came to the table hot. It was an added bonus to have Alvin come by the table to greet us. Our server told us that the paintings on the wall were done by him. I was impressed and... More

Slow simmered oxtail are to die for along with their coconut martinis. My favorite days to go are late Sunday's to enjoy their wonderful Live jazz music. Very classy place.

The food and service were great. I'd only say you'd have to be the mood for that type of food as night we went, there was no "American" type choices. I eat everything, but mate is bit more particular. With that said - service outstanding. Alvin himself made his rounds all night.

Very classy restaurant, very nice atmosphere, clean and unique. The owner actually welcomes all his guests. Live singing and music, I would indeed recommend this restaurant. Also only 30 minutes from NYC on the metro north.

The food, service, and Alvin, himself are first rate. Live music is a treat. Great food infused with an uncommon artistic flair. The restaurant can get a bit loud when full, but that should not prevent you from dining there.
