Everything about your experience at Alinea is absolute insanity! The presentations, the explanations, the preparations are absolutely insane. I must admit that at times, there are so many ingredients that it is hard to keep up and remember everything you are enjoying. But when they...More

Great food and service. More than a meal, it's a gourmet experience. You should not expect a lot of food though.

Multiple beautiful, interesting and delicious courses (with optional wine pairings - which we enjoyed) and personable servers made this a most enjoyable and light-hearted evening of exceptional dining. The meal was creatively and seamlessly modified for a vegetarian in our party. Love Alinea!!!

I had better meals and better 3 star restaurants but this is one of the most special and everything we ate was fantastic. Although it might have been a bit more. And I don't like that they oblige you to give 20% tip.

Very creative cuisine! Our server was very friendly. She was busy, but took time to visit a bit and didn't hurry us. Our food was delicious. All in all-a great experience.

My family of four had the gallery tasting menu and we preferred this menu not only for the additional courses but also because of the experience. I am sure that there is a lot more showmanship with this menu than the salon... More
