First time experience at Alba was nice....had gone there for drinks and at the 11th hour,
decided to have dinner in the bar area. Was a good dinner...a little pricey though for what we got.
However, we decided to try it a 2nd time recently but this time....made a reservation in the dining area. Unfortunately, I was turned off before we even arrived. Received a reservation reminder vmail of our 6pm dinner reservation and that "....the table has a 8pm seating thereafter".
Hmmm, a way of telling us that...you better be on time because we need your table at 8PM!! Talk about lack of respect for me as the customer....and sending the message that they are all about turning tables. Not what you tell a potential customer before they've even arrived.
The dinner this time was not bad at best...a little more on the disappointment side as my wife's appetizer was slightly burned, although they did make it 'right'. The server was good but, our
entree was not the best. Seemed like a sub-par quality dish.
All in all (the 2x we patronized the place) good but not top-notch, for the prices they command. If you go there, just remember....you're on the clock!
