  • The tonarelli and sunchoke curry were standout hits. Close behind were the brassicas and turnips. Al's Place has beautiful presentation and ambitious selections of flavors. Expect big things coming.
  • It's a hefty tasting menu that won't leave you feeling hungry (or overly indulgent); they've got a robust loophole cocktail program and solid wine list as well.
  • Share the dishes family style and be sure to get the pickled fries
  • Great atmosphere and yummy prefix menu. Only complaint is that it's a little pricey and they add a ton of sauce to stuff
  • Delicious and innovative dishes. On the pricier side but if you want to venture out and try things, get the chefs prefix menu!
  • Go here with 3-4 people and get the family style tasting menu! It is a good way to taste whatever is freshest and best that day. Very good value for the quality of the food, plating and portions.
  • A great restaurant with such a great variety of vegetarian dishes. However I wouldn't call this restaurant cheap as the dishes are quite small so you end up ordering about three dishes per person.
  • Solid and surprisingly affordable. The menu is centered around vegetables and subtle seafood.
  • Vegetables! Meat is fine but veggies are amazing. Peas, asparagus, morels, radishes.
  • Pedigreed chef Aaron London(Ubuntu, Locanda) serves up a pescetarian-focused menu, including fresh Dungeness crab and fettuccine with sunchokes, quince oil and sturgeon caviar.
  • The fermented potato fries have a crisp exterior and a firm, intensely flavored interior; they're served with smoked apple sauce.
  • the music here is always banging & perfectly curated. the green pea curry is off the charts
  • Great food. But a bit pricy. A $$$ rating would be more fitting.
  • Waiter was sort of rude, but food was decent. The pasta was the best thing... but you could get it for $8 at HeyDay if Im honest. Cute atmosphere.
  • The food is inventive and delicious
  • All the food is amazing
  • Reverse steakhouse where the vegetables are the star of the show and meat is just a side. Go family style!
  • Get the yellow wax bean stew and smoked trout. The drinks are a little strange and difficult to drunk as they dont have a proper liquor license
  • Al's Place lives up to the hype - Brine Pickled Fries, Chickpeas a la Catalan, Trout + Crispy Potato, Black Lime Cod drenched in Sunchoke Curry.
  • Eat everything!
