  • Overpriced and overhyped
  • On the rocks or frozen, lime or strawberry, those are all safe choices for a margarita, but Alba Restaurant chooses to be daring with their jalapeno margarita.
  • You need Alba's molten chocolate lava cake in your life! It's rich and delicious.
  • Monday happy hour is $5 burger and fries. They have quite a few interesting and delicious burgers to choose from. Do it!
  • Try the happy hour for $5 martinis and 1/2 price apps.
  • Tiramisu martini.. Nothing like it. Deliciousness. It's desert in liquid form. Yummmmmy.
  • Gnocchi was great!
  • Not impressed at all. it was bad but for what we paid i expected a lot better quality and flavor.
  • Try the Jalapeno-Prosciutto Fritters - Yup.
  • Great food for a vegetarian.
  • Half price bottles of wine on Wednesdays.
  • Try the pork burger! Amazing!!! The chorizo fries are also wonderful!!! And definitely order a pomegranate martini ... Shannon makes the best!
  • They r playing my favorite radio, freestyle and dub step music. Nice!
  • I had the awesome pork cheeks while my friend Anne had the Chive and Potato Gnocchi. That dish was phenomenal! That's buerre blanc sauce was delicious on all levels. Let's just say clean plates :)
  • Very good food & service!
  • Came here for restaurant week two years in a row. Both times we ordered the creme bru le and halfway through our meal we were told they "ran out". This place is a joke, avoid!
  • A layered approach to fine cuisine. Each bite has more to reveal. Hip, modern decor and a relaxed, yet professional wait staff. An excellent dining option!
  • The monkfish was delectable... Try the jalapeo fritters too!
  • This our most fav place to eat!
  • Amazing service and the chocolate lava cake is to die for!
