Food was poor, unimaginative. Had a salad drowned in what appeared to be a mayo based dressing that was tasteless and crab cakes that were very salty with tasteless sauce. We did not finish either one and left ASAP.

We chose this restaurants because it was near the Masonic Theater where we were going to catch a show to celebrate our anniversary. When we ordered we told the waitress that we had 50 mins before we had to leave. Then for 30 mins we got nothing, the waitress was great and kept us updated and apologized, our order was misplaced. We got our food, brussel sprouts and butter salad were very good, the Korean Fried Chicken was average and the Pork Chops with green beans was salty. We never complained. The waitress apologized for the delay in our food and credited us for the appetizers which was very thoughtful. Overall it was an ok experience.

Imaginative and tasty handcrafted cocktails, attentive service. I tasted the spicy fried chicken, pork chops, burger, and salmon cakes entres. All were excellent. We had a great time. Deep fried Brussels Sprouts were a big hit at our table.

Very disappointed with Aliment's service and food quality. Took a group of 14 people here and would not recommend it. We were put in a room with 2 other parties and we could barely hear one another speak - the acoustics were awful. It took an hour for our food, an hour and a half for our soup and I had to speak to the wait staff and management four times to express my dissatisfaction. Never again.

I came 10 minutes early and thought I might be able to wait for my friend at my table. They didn't seat me saying the dining room was not open until 5:30- even though I could see two tables with diners. I ended up sitting at the bar with my friend. Later, I discovered that there was a happy hour menu that we did not receive. I felt lied to and duped. I was hoping this would be a good spot to go to when attending theater performances but clearly, I should consider the multitude of other restaurants in the area.

The gnochhi was great -- very creamy. The Korean fried chicken was good as well, if inauthentic. (Putting gochujang on top of normal friend chicken doesn't make it Korean fried chicken, man.) I had the burger, which was also good. Maybe not $16 good, but definitely good. The fries that came with the burger were a let down. (I'm unsure if this was the thrice-fried fries on their menu or a different sort of fries, though.) Service was a bit slow, probably because we were on the top floor.

What a perfect choice for a dinner with friends, especially if you're good enough friends to share. My favorite was the pastrami sliders - so tasty even if a bit messy. (I covered my napkin with mustard.) I also love the brussels sprouts. Everything was so good. Finished with basil panna cotta for dessert, which was creamy and not too sweet. I'm getting some more friends together and going back again!

The food was mediocre! Which was a surprise since I had been here before and the food used to be great.
The waitress was aloof not very friendly and a bit standoffish.
They sat us upstairs which was hot and the noise level was so high that we could not have a conversation.

Aliment is a wonderful place to celebrate, bring a date or dine alone. The imaginative takes on traditional dishes always catches me by surprise and the wine list and service consistently exceed expectations as well. I have been going to Aliment for a few years now and the menu changes, but still never disappoints.

Aliment is operated like a bar that serves food, not a restaurant that has a bar. Service is indifferent and a little too casual, and the restaurant chooses not to provide amenities. For example, we were served warm water without ice; we had to ask for ice. And there are no condiments on the table. We also had to ask for salt and pepper. The menu is very limited, but the food is quite good. If I wanted a light meal in the Union Square area, I would drop in, sit at the bar and order a beer and a small plate.

They did not have one healthy option in their menu!!!
When I asked for the roasted chicken on the Aliment menu posted on Open Table, The waitress told me that I should have gone to their website instead as they do not update open table . What is the point then????? Then I asked for her to talk to the chef and see if he could grill any of their proteins and she said NO!!

We went to Aliment in search of local Nob Hill eclectic restaurant. it is eclectic and some of the dishes are very special such as the duck small plate. The Pastrami Sliders were much too spicy.
The Gnocchi entree was the best. The Cab house wine was suprisingly very good. But deserts are disappointing. Espresso Coffee was excellent.

4 out of 5 for their food & cocktails. On point with the food, well executed and delicious. Cocktails were also excellent. Wine by the glass was not. Our choice had been open for too long. Unfortunately, the service was uninspiring, as if they would have rather been somewhere else... And it was like 2 different restaurants, upstairs vs downstairs. We sat upstairs. it was much more lively downstairs with a good vibe.. I say try it because the food is good and so are the cocktails. So sit downstairs at the bar or a table to experience what i think they had in mind.

Thought that it was a very eclectic restaurant with a nice touch of showing "Back to Future" on the wall of the restaurant. Servers were good at pointing out recommended items to try. And, it had a terriffic mix of items to eat and drink.

I understand that there are space limitations, but for large groups it would be ideal to have circular or square seating rather than retangular as then everyone can see each other better and there is more chance to talk with those who are not seated next to you. I feel that is important for business meetings as it gets awkward as to who sits where. I would be more likely to return to a restaurant for business if it has better eye contact seating arrangements.

The food was good however, the menu did not reflect on their website menu. We chose the restaurant based on the website menu so we were disappointed to arrive at the restaurant and see a totally different menu. I had trouble selecting something that appealed to my appetite. Food was good though and room quiet so easy for a conversation.

Be careful if you are a slightly picky eater they do not allow substitutions and the servers attitude about it is very off putting. Order a $38 steak and want to substitute a side- they don't allow that. Want to order a side? Nope we don't allow that either. After canceling my order then they allowed me to order a side of fries.
When the meal came all three of Our Ny strip were very fatty. Food was super salty- not that good of a place to put up with a bad attitude and average food.

Aliment is always a pleasure. I have been a regular in July for the last 3 years. The waitresses are service minded and very cool. The wine recommendation matches the food and the menu is never boring. The only thing I always miss is the rose pepper ice cream, but that is the flip side of a a restaurant that continue to the develop the menu.

Everyone's dish was salty, not flavorful. Meats were over cooked. Dishes came out at different times. Waitress spoke so softly we could hardly hear her. This was very disappointing. I had been there before and enjoyed it but perhaps things have changed.

My third visit & friends first. Had a reservation way ahead. Arrived & was taken to a back table against a wall on mezzanine. Asked for a change & said only bar available. The lady bartender saved the day!!
Ordered a scotch; she offered a small
sample of a comparable Japanese product.
Gave us menu suggestions - made for a enjoyable experience after a slow start.

We visited Aliment on my birthday and before the theater. Warm greeting and seated at a great table overlooking the bar and street. As per all the reviews, the Brussels sprouts were fabulous! Attentive service with no pretense and at a perfect pace. Will dine there again and recommend to everyone. Another plus was the very reasonable pricing!

Service was lacking. When we inquired about beer, the server listed off a few different types of beer (porter, IPA, etc.)- not where they are from or any details. We were only checked on once despite there only being one other table in the upstairs area and had to ask for water refills. Food portions were small.
