Alycia's Bistro Ratings and Reviews
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.
It was our first visit and it was spectacular. We had 9pm reservations on Saturday and we read enough reviews to know we would probably wait. We were able to wait outside on the porch and watch the sites and we wee seated about 9:30. Our server Tom was super helpful. We highly recommend the truffle mac and cheese. Wow!!! We also enjoyed shrimp and grits, lobster ravioli, butternut squash pasta, and chicken fried steak. We were almost last to leave but never felt rushed. The tartufo and the flourless chocolate cake were our grand finale. Everything was truly delicious. We have a new favorite place!!!
The food was good they put allot of attention to detail there was a prefixed menu which we weren't aware of when booking on OpenTable for 62 pp. and they served no bread we thought this was a little steep and we like it bread cute romantic byo I'll give it a 7 out of ten
Our friends recommended we try this place and I'm really glad we did. The place is set up in an old Victorian home. It's not really fancy , although is set up nice and cozy. The food is unique and very tasty. I love that's it's BYOB and the price overall is reasonable. It's a great place for date night , although I would not recommend any group larger than 6 due to size limitation. Location is good since you can easily walk down the street to local bars after dinner.
Atmosphere was cozy. However, very poor lighting. Food was very fresh and flavorful. Appetizer and entree portions were worth every penny. Was not a fan of the carrot cake, but will try another desert next time. Wait service was friendly and accommodating without being overbearing.
So happy I found this restaurant on Open Table. It was a little crowded/noisy , but that's to be expected on a Saturday night. Wait staff was extremely friendly and kept apologizing for the long wait, but we really didn't think it was bad at all. We both had chicken specials which were delicious and the Special-Duck Confit Salad was AMAZING!! Can't wait to go back!!
We picked this restaurant because we wanted a farm-to-table restaurant and saw the positive reviews. We were not disappointed. Our food was delicious, well prepared and fresh. We loved the southern flare, especially the chicken and waffles. It was a very enjoyable meal.
We had a fantastic evening here! Everything we ordered was excellent! Loved the pork belly app (very meaty and crazy flavorful) and the truffle mac'n'cheese app (creamy, cheesy, sophisticated dish, large portion). The entrees were perfectly cooked and seasoned. And don't forget to bring your wine so they can make it into sangria, yum!
The food was very good. Had to wait a little while for a table to open even though we had a reservation but I understand that you can't make people get up from the table even when they have the check. The only negative was that we were served too quickly. We were not done with appetizer and they were already bringing main course. Even if it is ready they should hold off bringing it to the table.
I like the concept - farm to table - and the fact that it is byob is a major plus. The food was good - but not great. Went with another couple. The ladies had the salmon, the boys had short ribs and a paparadelle with saugage bolognese. The pasta dish was the best of the bunch. The salmon was ok but the short ribs were mediocre. The dishes were well conceived but they seemed like they were just not executed as well as they are at other restaurants we have been too recently with similar styled offerings. Certainly worth a try (and we may give it another whirl) but we were not overly impressed.
When I was not able to confirm my reservation for four people with a special request to be seated next to a wall through OpenTable, I call the restaurant to confirm . They stated that OpenTable reserved a table in the middle of the room for our party. We arrived at the restaurant to find an extremely loud venue on the first floor. When asked about seating upstairs we were informed that there was a very loud party upstairs. We were offered a choice of tables : next to a very loud table of six men or directly in the path of everyone who entered or exited the dining room ( including all wait staff). Our table waited an uncomfortable amount of time before our team of wait staff (two per table) attended to our order of appetizers and dinner. The mussels and salads appetizers were delicious as were the dinners of salmon over and delightfully dresses salad and chicken dinners. However, the quality of the meals were overshadowed by the negative experience of overwhelming nosiness and lack of attention by the team of wait staff.
I was traveling on New Year's Eve and not sure when I'd be home so we were unable to make plans in advance. I went on open table at 6 pm and saw that there were some time slots for Alycia's Bistro so we decided to go there. I was a bit worried since there was availability on a big night but that was in vain!! Wow what a surprise. It was difficult to pick out what we wanted to eat from the prix fixe NYE menu, everything looked good. What we had was amazing. Our service was good but a bit slow and there was a table of 7 behind us that was unhappy with their service, rightfully so. We were not in a hurry so it didn't matter. I can't wait to go back there. The regular menu has so many options I want to try!!
We picked Alycia's as a last minute dinner idea for New Years Eve. we had never been here before, and decided to try it. they had a limited menu for the Holiday. However, everything that we tried, was outstanding.
we can't wait to go back.
thank you and Happy New Year to the staff at Alycia's.
We had a 715pm reservation and had to wait about 15 minutes. Was not expecting this on a Thursday night. The servers were good, but seemed understaffed and slow. The food was very inventive and delicious. The bread and desserts were home made. Had an apricot ice cream and a maple bacon ice cream that was the best ever.
I'm a big fan of Alycias but they were a little off this night it started from standing at the front for ten minutes with no hostess or acknowledgement of our presence then we were seated and waited 15-20 min for water and bread I think they only had one server who was doing her best but was overwhelmed and last there was no sign of Alycia in the dining area and this was common practice in my previous visits I hope this isn't a sign of things to come what saved the night was the food was excellent as always
