Best kept secret in Utica. This restaurant is outstanding. Our Easter Dinner was to die for. I had the tenderloin and it melted in my mouth. The Blue Cheese dressing is absolutely delicious and I have to say even the mashed potatoes were the best I have ever had. We have dined at Alee's several times but need to put... More

We had dinner with friends at this little jewel of a restaurant and were extremely pleased with everything. The location is convenient to downtown Utica and they have off street parking. The atmosphere is fine dining (not too noisy for conversation, cloth tablecloths and napkins, nice tableware) but friendly and casual. The prices are very reasonable, portions are more than... More

Four of us had a great dinner here on a Saturday night. Unassuming exterior gave way to a very nice dining room. The menu was varied and reasonably priced for the quality and quantity of the food. We each had a different dish and were very satisfied. Husband's prime rib was huge and perfectly cooked. we will be back!

The rack of lamb, filet mignon, and salmon are exceptionally good and all are very reasonably priced! The desserts are scrumptious and the wait staff delightful. Chef Gerry is kind enough to work with special food requests... More

Alee's resturant is a small down to earth but the food was fantastic. The waitresses were just great. They were all attentive from the glass of water to making sure our meals were cooked to our liking. The atmosphere was so good everyone in our party mentioned it more than once. Great job and "We will be back!"

The service here is so-so by young and inexperienced waiters, but the Saturday night prime rib special is exceptional. The minimalist decor is a bit retro and you will need to get there early as their clientele seems to eat at retirement home hours.

Stopped in on a Saturday night with no reservations and expected a wait. But hostess was too busy taking on the phone and checking out patrons and never looked up or acknowledged us for about 15 minutes and when she did talk to us she was very rude. Will never go back again!!!

We did not have a reservation, didn't know they recommended them but they seated us anyways as they had an opening. It's a nice atmosphere, prompt service, and the food was good.
