Alee's offers a variety of dinner entrees from classic pasta dishes through beef, lamb, chicken and seafood delights in an open-room seating plan. The rack of lamb, filet mignon, and salmon are exceptionally good and all are very reasonably priced! The desserts are scrumptious and the wait staff delightful. Chef Gerry is kind enough to work with special food requests... More

Alee's resturant is a small down to earth but the food was fantastic. The waitresses were just great. They were all attentive from the glass of water to making sure our meals were cooked to our liking. The atmosphere was so good everyone in our party mentioned it more than once. Great job and "We will be back!"

The service here is so-so by young and inexperienced waiters, but the Saturday night prime rib special is exceptional. The minimalist decor is a bit retro and you will need to get there early as their clientele seems to eat at retirement home hours.

Stopped in on a Saturday night with no reservations and expected a wait. But hostess was too busy taking on the phone and checking out patrons and never looked up or acknowledged us for about 15 minutes and when she did talk to us she was very rude. Will never go back again!!!

We did not have a reservation, didn't know they recommended them but they seated us anyways as they had an opening. It's a nice atmosphere, prompt service, and the food was good.

We live not along ways from there but if you are in for a wonderful dinner that is a great place. If you would like a prime rib on Saturday it is recommended to call ahead of time and reserve it. But we have been there and never had a anything to be upset about. Very nice service.

First of all, there is no bar here. But they do offer to get you a drink after you come in, which you can have in the waiting area, or take it directly to your table. Spacious eating area, nice décor. Food was excellent. Very big portions of prime rib, enough to take home for the next day if you... More

Visited with friends and what a pleasant evening. Beautiful, calm, relaxed and the surroundings are low key. The service was very friendly, but be prepared for multiple servers to take care of you. Be sure to make a reservation in advance. There is a small waiting area but I wouldn't describe it as a bar or a cocktail lounge area.... More

If you were to experience just one restaurant in Utica this is it. Alee's consistently delivers quality fine dining in a pleasant atmosphere. If given a choice for fine dining this is always my first pick. The staff is top notch, the atmosphere inviting and the food is the best you will find in the city. Through many meals served... More
