Alycia's Bistro Ratings and Reviews
I was presently surprised. Everyone in my party enjoyed their dish. The service by Kevin & Ryan was outstanding. My only negative comment is- we I ordered a mixed salad- $9.95. I asked Kevin, to split it in the kitchen for my husband and I to share. He said " that would be a $6 and change charge. That's nuts. If it was a main OK. I think that should be amended.
alycia's restaurant - food was excellent - nice variety of choices, quaint house style dining areas with some of the friendliest and most attentive service we have seen in this area. the wait staff was knowledgable about the selections available, and worked together to provide a fantastic dining experience. the farm to table food was delicious, prepared tour liking, served promptly and was in large portions. and have to tell you - when the check came, we thought they forgot to put one of our meals on the bill because the price was so reasonable. we would ddef recommend tho restaurant, and we will absolutely go back for another meal.
We eat there often. Had the chicken and waffles. Not my favorite. Waffle was soggy. Recommend to serve syrup on the side. My husband had the short ribs. He likes this dish, but the serving did not resemble the servings in the past. I will stick with the duck dish and shrimp and grits.
Will come again.
Second time at Alycia's within the last several months and, once again, they did not disappoint. Another crowded Saturday night but that was no bother as we had a reservation. First, I love the BYOB option. It kills me to go to a restaurant and pay 2-4 times more for wines that I already have in my cellar - and with a lot more age. Brought two bottles of older Rhone wines that were singing with just 15min of air. For starters, my wife and I both ordered salads along with the Mystic Shrimp. The beet salad special I has was quite good. The Mystic Shrimp were once again terrific! For dinner, my wife enjoyed the shrimp and grits which was very good. But for me, the short ribs were exceptional. The meat was extremely tender and the sauce other worldly. My only complaint was that the meat was a bot more fatty than I would have preferred. Our server was courteous and very pleasant and you could see he was quite busy all evening. We topped off the meal by splurging on the carrot cake as we sipped cappuccinos. A thoroughly enjoyable meal. For us, the wait time for our food was fine as we were in no rush and just enjoying the experience and conversation. However, if you are in a hurry especially on a busy night you will likely be disappointed even though you shouldn't be. To the credit of Alycia's they are very up front about the fact that it takes longer to prepare the food since it is always fresh (i.e. not reheated or frozen) and, for us that night, I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Looking forward to dining upstairs!
This place has the best food anywhere, ever, at a most reasonable price. The servers are all very knowledgeable and friendly. The food is comparable to all $$$$$ restaurants in NYC and Atlantic City, but BETTER! I would eat here every day if I could . The chef is amazing. I can't wait to go back.
We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant and have already recommended to friends. Every dish we had was delicious - from appetizers to dessert. You must save room for their delicious desserts. The service was excellent. Whenever we are in the area, we will eat here.
I've been here many times and the food has always been consistently very good and the Service has been outstanding.
However the building and it's surroundings require lots of work and TLC. On one visit I actually had to fix the bottom step, main porch entrance, before I walked up the steps. The back entrance from the parking lot is run down looking and strewn with garbage? really??? can't anyone else see this?? Please adopt a more" attention to detail " mantra. It's not just about the food!
It 's always a great meal at Alycia's Bistro. We shared their famous Shrimp and Grits as an appetizer and then proceeded to enjoy an amazing Scallops Dish (scallops were browned and glazed with an delicious orange flavoring) and Veal Osso Buco. Desserts are made on premise, even the ice cream! The flourless chocolate cake was perfect. The Service was extraordinary and we felt so cared for. Always a must in Freehold and in NJ period.
The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The manager came over and asked my husband and I for feedback about the items we ordered because they were on a their new spring menu. I love the fact that they are so involved and want to ensure the best possible menu for their patrons. I have Celiac disease and eating gluten free is vital and they made it as seem less as possible!
We have been going here since it opened. The food and service is great. The problem seems to be their reception and reservations. We had a 715 reservation Saturday for 4 people. There was a young woman greeting us who seemed to be struggling and had many people waiting even though a lot of them had reservations. We were not seated until 750pm. I was not happy especially since someone called to reconfirm. They said nothing about a delay
Gluten free and vegan choices - many to choose from.
We had a wonderful table, were seated immediately (6 people with reservations Saturday 5:30 PM). No reservations waiting line...Excellent service, excellent food, very caring regarding one of our guests who needed gluten free. Price is right.........I expect to go back several time. Highly recommended.
I had a 7:15 reservation. It was crowded when I arrived. I was seated within 10 minutes of my arrival. The food was fabulous. I had the shrimp and grits! Very flavorable. Was disappointedted to learn after I arrived that it was BYOB. A nice bottle of wine would have been great with my meal.
Highly recommend this place.
Even though we had a reservation for 7:15, it was 7:30 before we were seated. There was no where to wait, except in the doorway and it was freezing cold every time that the door opened, which was often! The waiter came to us immediately, opened the wine asked if we would like water and disappeared for 15 minutes. We had to ask for the water when he finally took our order. We continued to wait and then had to ask for bread. It was almost 8:30 by the time we got our food, which was good as always. It just seemed that the kitchen was totally overwhelmed. Many people were just sitting and waiting for their food to arrive. It was such a miserable evening that we will really think twice before we return. The food is always good, and the wait staff is friendly and helpful, but this was a case of being completely over booked and it didn't turn out well for anyone.
We have been going here since the first day they opened. The food is always excellant and the employees are well informed and always pleasant. My only (minor) complaint is it can get noisy when you're trying to have a conversation with your significant other. We try and sit upstairs as that seems a little better. Homemade deserts are Great.
