    We made reservations here for New Years Day with some friends. The food was phenomenal, but the reason we chose this place was for the NYD experience. Unfortunately, we didn’t get offered anything that was supposed to be part of the experience. The service was fine, nothing great. I had to chase down the server to order a drink for my wife. Overall we would go back , but def not for a special occasion.

    The food was just amazing. Unfortunately I have a noise sensitivity that would prevent me from enjoying the dining experience indoors. We ate outside last night and were pretty cold. I think I will plan my dinners there on spring and summer evenings

    Alaro Brewpub is consistently good in every aspect of the dining experience: food, service, ambiance, and drinks. It is a cozy, easy going spot to enjoy a nice beer, cocktail, or glass of wine with excellent tapas, sandwiches, soups, and salads. The prices are little high for the serving sizes, but the dishes are always excellent. We have and would recommend Alaro to any of our friends looking for a nice casual Midtown restaurant.

    Our export Alaro was memorable. The beer offerings are very good, without there being too many consider. They also have a generous wine list as well as mixed drink options.the service was exceptional as well as the food. We will definitely return. Do not go too early, as the chef’s special piaya takes time. The octopus dish was amazing.

    We dined here on my birthday for the very first time. The ambiance was perfect, the service was friendly & prompt. The food was delicious! We all tried different things. The Croquettes were so light & flavorful. The tempura fried pickles were definitely the favorite at our table. We had the fish tacos, beef cheek sandwich, the grilled cheese & the steak special with Brussels sprouts. We will be back to try more items from the menu!

    We sat on the patio so it was very quiet—heaters kept it cozy. The food was delicious! (You simply must try their Frickles, Bruschetta, Croquettes… Everything!) Beer and ciders were crisp and tasty. Service was great: prompt and friendly. We will definitely return.

    Food was delicious. Our group of 5 wanted to try a variety of the Tapas and boy did we. The chips and caramelized onion dip had very crisp fresh chips the only thing I would have liked to see was actual caramelized onion in the dip. The Pulpo was very tasty and was gone in seconds :) We also had the pork cheek and wished there had been a bit more pork there were maybe three small pieces but very tasty. Papas Bravas was very delicious, crisp potatoes and wonderful sauce. The service was wonderful and friendly, I read in other reviews that some had encountered bougie staff but not my experience. The back patio was beautiful I recommend that area the most. We all plan to return on a Wednesday for live music and paella.

    We had our puppy so we made a reservation on the patio. We got in the back section of table on the patio which was perfect. The patio was beautiful and the food and drinks were great. They brought a bowl of water for the puppy and he had plenty of space to explore without bothering other people. It was a perfect night!

    The octopus is a must-have. Inside was a bit too loud for us, but the patio out front was perfect, we did get forgotten out there for a while (maybe a shift change?) that was rectified quickly and nicely. Seats outside are comfortable.

    We have been to alaro many times and usually have a great experience. We know they are slow but that is usually OK because the food is worth it. This time, they were extra slow, taking 30 minutes from ordering to getting 2/4 entrees and another 5 minutes til the last two were dropped off at our table. The food was lack-luster. A burger ordered to be cooked medium was very well done, dry and chewy. The fish tacos were very bland. It wasn’t the waitresses fault but she also seemed very busy, as many are, and didn’t notice/ask about quality.

    Great lunch. Onion dip was the best!! Had the blt, clams and grilled cheese. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Beers are the best. Jonathan , our server was very nice and selected a beer for our guest. He’s the best!!!! Gotta try this place and I hope Jonathan is your server. Forgot to mention, the flight of ice cream sundaes were devoured.

    I was disappointed. Super nice server and hostess but the kitchen was spotty- the food was not great (fish tacos had 1 huge piece of fish that was hard to eat plus an odd cornmeal crust; burger was under seasoned , tomato dip was under salted ) and the food came out erratically. ON the plus side, the beer was excellent and the fried pickles delicious. I would come back for these but not dinner.

    A brewery with great beers, great food, a fun vibe and friendly staff. We went for the beer and the interesting menu and had a great evening. They have standard pub fare but we had the Spanish flair food. They had a seafood paella that was outstanding and an elote off the cob that was delicious. Fish tacos had a great flavor profile and were huge!

    They were having a paella special-seafood paella. It was $36. Some of the seafood was deep fried and the rice was tasteless. Tasted like no saffron was added. Totally overpriced and barely any flavor
