I thought this was going to be a typical NYC gimmicky spot because of the obvious theme back to the Alice in Wonderland story book, but I was shocked when I entered. First the bad: The service was mediocre, but I have mostly stopped paying...More

We went to Alice's on a busy Saturday morning. The friendly and professional staff immediately made us feel at home and explained the menu to us. The tea was lovely and the food world class! A must visit off the beaten track in NY

A creative restaurant. Food and drink items have an Alice and Wonderland theme. They have signature teas and food items. It's worth a visit.

This is a very cute establishment worth visiting if you are in the neighborhood. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful - she recommended a tea with chocolate notes that was very nice. The chicken sausage/potato hash was delicious and I would highly recommend it.

The place is cute, the food is fine. But Bohemian and eclectic should not equal dirty and run down and basically unsanitary. It is also terribly overpriced.

I have only been there for lunch during the week and depending on how busy they are I would say an hour and a half to 2 hours. I hope this helps.
