Aliment Ratings and Reviews
Awesome. Sat down for dinner at 6:00 p.m. So many food options so many beer options. Took our time and ate and drank slowly. Left at 9:30 p.m. Never got rushed. Staff happy to let us try a sip of a few beers before we selected what we want. PLUS, they have Moonlight Brewing beer on tap (not available in a bottle) and this Santa Rosa brewer is one of the absolute best brewers in the country! The pork was fantastic. Finger licking good. Must go back!
The chef is amazing and talented, but the service is C-. I had to request change of plates, which is very important when tasting different meals. Plus, I was asked, "did I have reservations,"while sitting at the table by another worker. Weird, because I was seated by the host. Overall, the service crew needs more restaurant etiquette and should always change plates when the chef is featuring amazing dishes.
Good cocktail. Great service. Burger - meh. Maybe it was an off-night. The burger was a little bland tasting. The roll was stale. I wouldn't say don't go or I won't go back. I will say with so many others choices in the same area and pricepoint, it may be a while.
My wife and I are always looking for excellent restaurants around the Union Square neighborhood and Aliment fit the bill. Our first time, prior to attending a SHN production, so the dining crowd was light. We were seated upstairs and had a great view of the bottom floor, bar & outside to Bush Street. My wife had the mussels light plate and raved about it. We'll definitely return.
We enjoyed our evening at Aliment. On a trip to San Francisco, we ate there our first night since it had an interesting menu and was very near our hotel. Great ambience and service with an interesting menu. Everything we had was quite good except for my wife's main course; she did not like its texture. Nice starters and dessert. A fine neighborhood option.
I made my reservation on open table for 9:30 for 4 people. We arrived at 9:29. When we got there we were informed that their credit card machine was down which wasn't an issue cash is easier. They took our drink order and when the came back they told us the kitchen was closed.... I told them I made a reservation and he said let me see what we can do. A girl comes over and says well I can tell you the only things we can make right now which was only a handful. I'm just not sure why I was able to make a reservation at 9:30 and not get food. The kitchen shut down 50mins before closing. She brought Brussel sprouts on the house that were good. But the way everything happen was a bummer
I was pretty disappointed at the difference between the menu (sounded good) and the manifestation. I had a tepid cocktail that was a bit like cucumber flavored saliva, and the Korean Spicy Fried Chicken. Sad to say, the chicken tasted like it had been fried first, coated in Sriracha mixed with sugar and then blasted to a lacquer finish. It was actually hard to physically eat it. Also, it did not marry well with kimchee and an arugula garnish whose dressing vanished as did everything else, next to the Sriracha lacquer. The dinner actually became funny, it was so pretentious, unbalanced and inept. Really sorry - wanted it to be good. My dinner partner's gnocchi were underdone but better. The serving staff seemed stressed out and disorganized as a team, though doubtless each person is a good person. Definitely not worth the downtown SF prices.
A friend & I were attending a performance nearby, and dining at Aliment was the perfect option. To start, I had the beet salad and she had the cauliflower dish. While the beet salad was good, it was a bit overdressed, and more beets would've been nice. The cauliflower dish was great. For my entree I had the crab cakes, which were probably the best crab cakes I've ever had. She had the fried chicken dish, which she really enjoyed. I thought overall value was good for the price, and I look forward to dining at Aliment again. Thanks!
Aliment isn't a very cohesive experience. It's got a lovely space that I really enjoyed. Service is fine. The cocktails were nice enough, nothing really stand-out. The menu is all over the place, and the flavors all kind of run together. Peppers stuffed with pulled pork, and then deep-fried, should be a lot more flavorful. The Korean fried chicken has a sauce that isn't spicy, and the coating for the chicken is so spongy that the sauce soaks in and it all becomes congealed. The whole menu felt like a bad potluck without any coordination. The brussels sprouts are lovely, and possibly the only good thing on the menu.
Not sure what I was expecting but didn't find the menu to be very appealing. Had steak and it was okay but nothing great about it. Endive, on the other hand, was very good. Same with the Brussel sprouts. They were excellent. The restaurants version of "falafel" was mediocre. Wine selection was quite limited. Service was adequate - we were upstairs so didn't expect to get spot on service. Probably won't return as there are too many other choices in the neighborhood.
Delicious food, creative presentation but ambience is a bit sterile .
The service was a little uneven- server did not really know how to describe the beer selection, and as there wasn't a list at the table, it was a little awkward, but friendly and good-natured.
Brussel sprouts, potato leek soup and beet salad were exceptional.
Loved the Spicy Korean Fried Chicken, the heat was a bit less than anticipated, but flavor was right on and chicken cooked to perfection.
I enjoyed this place. Went at the suggestion of a friend. I enjoyed all the food I ate. Good wine too. Good prices for SF, given how 'foody' it is. I didn't love that they seem to serve things in mason jars - hard to get the food out. Serve food to eat - not to be pretentious.
