We branched out from our more "typical" dishes and perhaps that was a mistake. I had the romaine with calamari salad, pork belly and gnocchi and while it was all good, I cannot say I was inspired by my meal. The better half had the three-course tasting menu, and while the fried halumi second was great, the Scottish trout main... More

The restaurant was awesome, atmosphere was really nice, simple table set-up. The food was tasty, everything was balance. Servers were very friendly. Even though it is a fine dining restaurant, they could definitely step up in their portions a bit more. We ordered the Argula Salad excluding the prosciutto ( do not eat pork) (best salad I honestly ever had),... More

Enjoyed a very nice dinner last night with 2 others. Excellent service (perhaps a bit slow but we had lots of conversations to cover!). Excellent food, very good wine list and great atmosphere.

The halibut was dry, lacking flavor. Even adding hot sauce to it did not improve the taste. Beef tenderloin was okay; but nothing special. Beef tartare was sweet and spicy (the sauces were overpowering the taste of the actual beef). Lobster tempura- nothing special. Chocolate cake - hard, although the colour was dark, it wasn't rich chocolate feel. What stood... More

Hidden away. I would have never went there would it not have been for my friend who lieves just outside the city. It had very, very good service, very good food; nice and quiet; just what one wants to discuss business. Very pleasant atmosphere. A good wine selection rounds up the quality this place offers. I will go ther again... More

First time I've eaten here and it was a business meal, so out to impress. I was not disappointed. The waitress was very nice and service was great. Food was very good and both my guest and I enjoyed it. I would highly recommend this place for both business and pleasure.

We went to Alloy for a ladies' night - it is a funky place, loved the cocktails, and the food was amazing. It is expensive, so save it for a special occasion or a fun night out with friends when you're ready to spoil yourself a bit!

Alloy is a modern decor, hip restaurant bar. Our most recent visit in July surprised us because the usually packed, lively restaurant was a bit quiet-maybe because it was during STAMPEDE. Reception is pleasant and efficient. Wine and table services are friendly and knowledgeable, and the food is of high quality- delicious and well presented. Overall, Alloy is on our... More
