We had a wonderful meal here in August 2014. Service was friendly and mostly attentive. Everyone in our party of six reported enjoying their entrees. My hanger steak was seasoned to perfection and the portion was generous. Small but excellent wine list with good values to be had. The nitpicks: Chairs are uncomfortable. Cheese appetizers were small for the price... More

My wife and I went w/ a couple who lives in LIC who are regulars and Alobar didnt disappoint. We only had beers and apps but all very good. The bacon popcorn in and of itself worth a visit. Also had duck salami, mussels, fries, gnochi and ribs. Mussels werent huge but certainly adequate. We didnt think the prices high,... More

Just about everything at Alobar is terrific, especially if you like savory meaty food. I've never had a bad meal there. But be prepared: it's expensive!

We stopped by after church and enjoyed a wonderful brunch and bloody Marys. The staff was friendly, service was good and the food was great. It is quaint and beautifully decorated. We are always excited to find fun, new places to go for a meal.

We were visiting our granddaughter in LI City this past weekend and she and her fiancee took us out to dinner here. Cocktails were reasonable and very good for the price. Decent selection of beers and wines by the glass or bottle. The atmosphere is very cozy and the kitchen is plainly visible to the patrons. The menu, while not... More

The food quality is very good. Fine wine selection. The neighborhood has changed a lot, better than some places in Manhattan. My friends and I came here to celebrate our belated birthdays. We had mushroom toast for appetizer. Tasty! I had chicken for my entree. The chef prepared chicken really well, just the way I like it. It's a little... More

This place has a small menu but the unique items make up for it. I recommend the maple bacon popcorn and/or beef tartare (if you're adventurous). A word of warning; Get there early or menu items will run out. I experience this the last time I was there and it took our waiter almost 20 minutes to realize that they... More

With places like Williamsburg stealing the spotlight for artisanal food, especially American fare, Alobar proves that creativity and quality food exists in other boroughs. I was visiting the area around Gantry Park and wanted a quick bite to eat, so I headed to Vernon Blvd, which was teeming with activity. Alobar is an open space, cleverly designed. A combination of...

stopped here for lunch. Pulled pork sandwich delicious. Waiter was really nice guy. Wanted to come back for a drink in the evenings, but always too late as this place surprisingly seems to close pretty early.

Alobar is a nice place to visit especially if one is looking for something a bit different when it comes to beer and food menu. Prior to its official opening, the place, at least from just passing by it, seemed interesting and did offer some off the beaten path menu items like Maple Bacon Popcorn and Amish Pig Tail. It...
