    Thoroughly enjoyed our food and experience for my husband’s birthday dinner. We went a little overkill on the appetizers but it was worth it. Entree choices were beef filet (best mashed potatoes - so creamy!!) and homemade pasta bolognese. Delicious all around! We will be back.

    We had the devil eggs and figs baby spinach salad. Eggs are not what I expected comparing to others. The salad has no dressing, and we didn't bother to ask why. The sheared black cod fish is good. But the beef short ribs are kind of dry and hardly any gravy served. The cherry tomatoes came with the black cod were cold. Horrible dishes for the prices. Servers were very tentative. The reviews I saw here are mostly over rated. I don't recommend this place.

    We have been here for a few times, this time it was disappointing. The caviar has no taste, and they served with pickles and thick bread. the short ribs were a bit dry and very blend, no taste nor favor. We sat upstair and the noise level was acceptable, I know downstair will be noisy. The services were a bit slow.

    Devil farmed egg. Wish they would state how many on the menu, or the wait staff would inform us that we are only getting 1 pc. It’s a little awkward when you have two people and one egg comes out.

    We had a great time! just a few notes: Let's start positive: they have a lovely terrasse on a beautiful patio outside, and their service was very good! On the not so great note: Their caviar toast is too creamy and crunchy, which hides the savory of this delicate taste. The wine was served too hot, it was a hot day but for the price they were asking, it was disappointing. The chicken "a la diabla" is quite spicy! no mention on the menu and no-one to tell us. We would have chosen a different wine if we knew. Overall good experience!

    Our server seemed rushed and less than friendly. I have eaten well-prepared octopus, and the dish at this restaurant was overcooked, chewy and tough. The sauce for the mussels tasted like canned tomato soup, and the accompanying bread was tasteless. Both of our desserts were good. Food, drinks, wine and ambience were all overpriced for what we received.

    I would return for brunch and want to return for their dinner. My husband, son and I went for Saturday brunch. My son was looking forward to the seared ahi tuna but it was not offered during brunch. Irregardless each item we ordered was beautifully presented, included tasty local ingredients, and tasted delicious. I would return for dinner with my son who could order the seared ahi tuna if our brunch experience went well. After the appetizers, mimosas, entrees and excellent customer service (thank you Trevor) I’m happy to say I’ll be retuning for their dinner. Here’s what we ordered: - Zucchini bread - Brie - Skirt steak with eggs and chimichurri - Short rib omelette - French toast

    Mussel appetizer was very very good, especially with their freshly baked side of bread for the delicious sauce. I would say the oysters were just okay and not quite worth it. The Branzino fish entree was an absolute star. All of their cocktails are forth it.

    The atmosphere was great, the service was great, but the food was not good. I appreciated the accommodations, but my order was incredibly bland and unseasoned. They did not add any salt at all. The drinks were good, I would definitely recommend going for cocktails but not staying for dinner.

    food and service was excellent, and we will return, however, the restaurant should consider building a level platform for the ally tables as it was uncomfortable sitting on a slant and use table cloths, this is a high end restaurant should not be putting cutlery down on a bare table,

    A&V is the slam dunk Alameda brunch spot! Trevor took care of us again on a warm Sunday noon. Their Avo Toast is simply amazing. Chorizo Omelette, Shakshouka and Brie Pastry are solid heavyweights. Like their Moca coffee too. Next time I’ll walk over and try their famous cocktails……

    The service was off tonight -- we had two people in our party who were allergic to cilantro, and when they brought out the mussels dish, there was a green herb spread on top. It looked and smelled like Cilantro, so we asked. The waiter assured us that there was no cilantro anywhere on the menu. A member in our party pointed out that there was cilantro in one of the cocktail dishes, and the waiter clarified that there was none anywhere on the food menu. Two bites later (and a taste test by a member of our party who wasn't allergic) confirmed that, indeed, there was cilantro on the dish. Not taking people's allergies seriously isn't cool. A shame; the food was otherwise wonderful.

    We had 5 different entrees and everyone agreed they were superb. Our server was so nice and has been my server the few other times I’ve visited. Always very pleasant and informative, and recommended the Branzino without hesitation and it was great! It was my birthday, they brought out the most amazing chocolate truffles, plus I had the panna cotta. So good. May be the best food I’ve had in Alameda and The Bay.

    Alley & Vine is a must stop next time you are in Alameda - and for locals, how lucky are you to have such a wonderful establishment in your neighborhood. We started with drinks and the bartender did not disappoint, serving up ice cold, dry martinis - just as requested. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal - would rate the appetizers all 5/5 which included the house-made focaccia bread, Caviar Bite and Shrimp Cocktail. My entree the Pan Fried Branzino was also a 5/5, my partner rated his Filet of Beef a 4/5 as the temperature was not correct the first time and size seemed on the small size. The Lemon Cake dessert was quite good, however, could have skipped this simply because the meal was so delicious that my expectations were quite high. Service was enthusiastic and attentive - only downside was we needed to request 3-4xs that the heat lamp to be turned on and ultimately a server from a different section assisted with this. Overall, I would happily return and encourage others to check out Alley & Vine.

    New chef. All the dishes were full of garlic. For those of us with a garlic allergy this was a problem. Only a few dishes could be altered. Culinary-wise, never a good idea to rely heavily on one spice.

    Food was good just not as tasty as it could have been. Very little use of seasoning or sauces. Caviar bites were good but the brioche was a bit stale and the presentation a bit bland for the price. Watermelon salad with raspberries and lettuces was underdressed with a nondescript dressing. Large pieces of watermelon would have worked better in cubes to incorporate into the salad. Salmon entrée was served on very bland wild rice with a small amount of a meh cauliflower sauce. Service was good if a little slow. There didn't appear to be enough waiters for all the tables. The atmosphere on the courtyard is very charming

    Terrific outdoor patio, food was good, not phenomenal (risotto was very bland), wine list was laughably over-priced (or just poorly selected -- too many bottles that were far too high priced for a neighborhood restaurant, adn 1/2 of the wines by the glass were $18 - $30, for a glass of wine; come on...)
