Alloy Ratings and Reviews
A consistently incredible dinning experience. You can't go wrong with any meal choice. The atmosphere remains an enticing draw and it just feels great from the arrival sequence to being seated at your table. Our thoughts - the best choice for a night out in the City.
My wife and I had recently visited Alloy for our wedding anniversary. The restaurant and staff were incredibly welcoming. We sat in a booth and were welcomed with complementary proseccos while we decided which cocktails to try off their impressive menu. I had the "el burro" which was excellent and my wife had a bourbon cocktail I can't remember the name of but she loved it. We ordered the prawns and tomato salad as starters and were blown away with how good they were. Not too big for two people planning on having a full meal as well. For our meal I ordered the Tenderloin and my wife had the Halibut. My steak was impressively good, cooked to perfection and incredibly tender. The brie mashed potatoes were so good with it that they're worth a mention as well. My wife's meal unfortunately wasn't as great. The lobster risotto that comes with the Halibut was excellent and she ate every last bit of it however the Halibut that came out was quite dry. We're not complainers and loved everything else about the experience. I would go back in a heart beat and would recommend this to anybody looking for some really good food.
I love that the outside does not let you know what a great experience you are in for. I t is a lovely surprise when you enter the building.
The chefs meal was fun and a great intro to dishes that I may not have ordered otherwise.
We were at a table this time. I prefer a booth. There is more privacy in the booth, and the noise doesn't intrude on your conversation. Much busier this time. I have been to this treasure 5 times...this was the busiest by far....almost sad that more people have found it...:)
I took my wife here for our anniversary dinner. From start to finish, everything was excellent. Our server was fantastic and as usual Chef Herrera put on a perfect show. This was not our first visit to Alloy and will definitely not be our last. Being in the industry, I can be a little more critical at other resturants than my own, but this was a perfectly orchestrated beautiful dinner. Thank you to Chef Herrera and team!
The service and setting were excellent. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor dining with wide table spacing and pleasant decoration. The food was reasonable but to our tastes not outstanding. Good presentation however the main courses were a some what tough strip loin and dry fish. The TH wine is great value.
Overall experience was very good. The food is pricey, but you pay for what you get and you get top notch food and service.
-Food was amazing - did an appi dinner, all of which were amazing.
-Service was just as good as the food. Did not have to wait to long for each menu item, each item was plated well, and your taste buds exploded.
-Drinks were very good, but limited. Did not venture into the wine list, but from a quick glance had lots to offer.
-Very nice patio.
The one thing that we were not as happy about, was a crying baby. While I understand young families need to go out, having a crying baby a table away while trying to have a romantic dinner was not as enjoyable.
This was our second visit to alloy and we didnt enjoy it as much as our first visit. I think it was our server this time. They were efficient, but the first time we were there the server had more personality and chit chatted with us and it was a far busier on our first visit.
This was the first time my girlfriend and I dined at Alloy and it definitely will not be the last. Everything was amazing! This was probably the nest meal we have ever experienecd, including the ambience and the service. Michelle was our server and she was friendly, gave us great recommendation and timed everything perfectly. These meal was fantastic, from the appetizers, entree, all the way to dessert and coffee. We would highly recommend the lobster tempura, truffles gnocchi, beef tenderloin and flourless chocolate cake. We also loved the 1960's decor. All in all, absolutely amazing! We will definitely be back.
Alloy was a great find, tucked away a bit hard to see and the outer building is misleading but once you get inside it was well appointed and comfortable. The food was delicious, varied menu with options; and nicely quiet even though there were quite a few tables you did not hear the others. The service was outstanding, I cannot say enough as I rarely see that level of service any more. It is a bit pricy however nice for a treat or a special event.
It was way over priced for the setting, the food . I've been to other restaurants with a better out door patio, one that doesn't look like it was thrown together overnight, you would think the price they charge for eating there it would rival a restaurant like Rivers cafe! Not impressed.
Underwhelming. For appetizer I ordered the ahi tuna tartare and had to send it back because it had a terrible "fishy" taste (if it makes sense), and the texture and consistency was very unappealing.
For main dish, I ordered the halibut, and despite of the fact of paying $45 for a small piece of fish, it came out dry, and again with a strong "fishy " taste. Definitely not reflecting good quality. Don't think I will come back.
Have had quite a few good meals at Alloy but (other than the appetizer which was fabulous) our main course was really not good and our server spent the last half of our visit taking pictures And chatting with two young ladies and then just disappeared. What might have been a dessert and after dinner drink order turned into a request for the bill
Haven't been to Alloy for sometime, glad we came back, simply outstanding dinning experience, our server Jake was amazing, very attentive. Had a variation to an old fashion. Cocktail, glass had a smokey fragrance,like a campfire, very cool. We shared the truffle gnocchi!, so good. Had the beef tenderloin and short rib,both very tender would highly recommend. Finished with their flourless chocolate cake, so moist and good for sharing, nice location out of the downtown core and great parking.
This place is expensive and maybe had 6 tables for lunch. The arancini was delicious but unbalanced with the risotto ball to prosciutto ratio. The burger's bun was cold and was overseasoned with a thick layer of grainy mustard (When I mentioned this to the server, she said she loved the mustard and walked away to tend to other tables. I did not eat the bun as a result.). The fries were unevenly cut so unevenly cooked. They were still delicious, though. They unfortunately do not offer complimentary sparkling water like many other restaurants do. The interior is absolutely beautiful and the server was nice but customer service was average.
Alloy has an elegant decor and a very nice dining atmosphere. My friends and I have eaten at Alloy several times. The menu is revised and had some nice entree choices. I ordered the halibut which is my favourite fish. It was served with lobster risotto, marinated cherry tomato, green peas , and kale pistou. Presentation was very good. Cost was $45. The halibut was dry but the other elements were good and complemented the fish. I did not send it back as it takes a while for a new plate and I did not want to eating when my friends were finished. I had the flourless chocolate cake which was very good.
Our waitress was fabulous and the ambiance is wonderful. I had the 45$ halibut with lobster risotto and was a little disappointed. The fish was a bit dry. My husband had the duck and loved it. Wine by the glass selection isn't huge but very special wineries so we loved the choices. We will go back again for another special occassion.
We had been to alloy once previously and would have given it 5/5 that night! With the same expectations for our last dinner, we were sadly disappointed. Our appetizer had good flavour but overcooked and our dinners were mediocre this time. I ordered the tenderloin medium rare and this came very rare... my husbands fish was salty...We got charged for a birthday dessert when the person behind us had theirs complimentary and our server was ok, again, not as good as the girl we had the first time.
I went with a friend and we ordered 5 dishes off the salad / appetizer list and shared. Each was better than the last, and the greek salad was amazing. the Lobster tempura, prawns with watermelon and gnocchi were all sublime. Everything was beautifully presented, and we noted how each dish was really perfect for splitting for two (either that or the serving staff ensured it could be easily split as he knew we were sharing). We each had a cocktail, both were excellent, and the wine list offered a bit of everything. A very lovely experience with wonderful food in a very clean and elegant room.
