“Food was OK but...”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 via mobile

Just had lunch at Alegro. This was a lunch which was also meeting of several individuals who had met at a conference across the street. I had a shrimp poboy with a cut of gumbo. The gumbo was very bland without much flavor, the shimp poboy had good flavor but was very small. The service was terrible, it took a long time to get the food and then they would not allow the checks to be separated so the bill was all screwed up. I wound up paying $33 for a sandwich and cup of soup. WAY OVER PRICED. If you are alone or a couple this place may be OK but I would NEVER recommend it to a group or for a professional meeting.

Thank safetymelSeminole

“Love the Food, Excellent Staff!”
Reviewed 5 July 2012

I visited Allegro Bistro while in New Orleans. Our waiter was named Eric and he was excellent. I had the tomato basil soup and a grilled chicken salad--both were excellent! I will definitely eat here again.
