“What a pleasure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Thank you Alba, for making our belated anniversary dinner so special. The food and drinks were fabulous, the service was fantastic, and they even surprised us with Tiramisu dessert in honor of our anniversary. Kudos to our waiter, Javier. He was very attentive and friendly. The rest of the staff were also very attentive and made us feel right at home. I ordered the orecciette. I was expecting tons of pasta and just a bit of lobster. Well!!! it was the other way around. Tons of lobster, al dente pasta with a light sauce, crisp tender asparagus, and not too heavy on the sundried tomatoes. Savored every bite. My husband had the Fish Oscar. Wow! Again, more than expected. He couldn't finish it. The mahi was delicious and the lump crab meat that topped it off could have been a meal in itself. We truly enjoyed the whole experience and can't wait to go again.

“Good and convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

A beautiful space with a great view of the ocean. I was pleased to see there were other options on the menu besides Italian. I thoroughly enjoyed the deviled eggs and skirt steak. There are also 2 large screens to watch sports but it does not have a "pub" feel.

With so many great restaurants in the area, I would recommend venturing out if time permits. If not, this is not a bad option and the pricing is reasonable for the area and expected since it is based in a hotel.

“Relaxing Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Arrived at Alba around 11:00, breakfast had just finished and the lunch crowd was not yet there. No problem, they helped us get seated and were incredibly nice and helpful. We had a table outside looking out to the ocean with a wonderful breeze. Got a few light dishes and shared. Food was really good and just what we wanted. I'd recommend this place anytime.

“Delicious food on the seafront”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

I had dinner during Miami Spice. The three course dinner was delicious at only $33.00 and a bottomless offer for wine or sangria at $15.00. I sat out on the terrace overlooking the led color changing lights around the pool and further on the entire seafront. It was awesome! The manager, Chris came out to greet us and make sure everything was great. The service was perfect. Definitely coming back and will book a private party right on the beach!
