“Let's hope they can do better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

A friend and I went to Allgos on a Thursday night. There were two other parties there, a band was setting up and there appeared to be only one person working in the entire place. She was tending bar, taking orders, and preparing the food. It clearly was too much for one person. We had a long wait to place our order. We had to return our silverware and dishes because there was food on them. The waitress/bar tender explained that she was probably responsible because she picked them up with food on her hands. We were able to wipe the whipped cream off of the second set of plates and were glad to do so because we knew that returning them would occasion another long wait.

The restaurant was out of several items on the menu.

The desserts themselves were quite good. There was a sampler option on the menu that was well-priced and well proportioned.

I would consider giving Allgos another chance if it were not for several other dessert restaurants within walking distance. I'll try another one first.

“Great drinks, great music, great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2010

I was visiting friend who just moved to the area and we decided to try out Allgos. We were NOT disappointed. Everyone in the place was friendly and the service couldn't have been better. The bartenders never missed a beat! Can't wait to go back.
