Been here in years past with good experiences. This visit not the same. Service was poor at best. Waitress did not know wine menu. Got wrong wine. She visited the table to take order and to bus the table. Steak was ordered medium and came out well done. New steak came out within 2 minutes. Suspicious! Owners should figure out... More

Dear sbtiddy, First i'd like to apologize for the service you received. We have dealt with the server you had and this will not happen again. This is not how we do business at The Alley House. Thousands of people over the years have enjoyed this wonderful restaurant, including all that still come through our doors to this day, your... More

First let me say that a $100 gift card for birthday did not cover dinner. Server did not even present the daily specials (which looked delicious by the way!) poured the beer so half of it was pure head. Food was good but extremely over priced. Bland ice cream sundae for the birthday dessert. Would expect better service and etiquette... More

Dear localgoat, Spending 100.00 is not uncommon at the The Alley House. We are an upscale high end restaurant and never pretended not to be. We carry only the highest quality ingredients for our dishes. But I do want to correct you in that customers can come in and spend less if that's what kind of evening they are desiring.... More

Alley House is not for the financially faint hearted. Having noted that, we just had one of our most amazing dinner meals. Service was impeccable and the ambiance relaxing. We did not find the noise level at all excessive or distracting. Our dinners had wonderful presentations with a combination of flavors that were enjoyable and expansive moment by moment. Other...

I would rank Alley House 2nd in Pagosa for food - just below Thai Pagosa. While they both serve the best quality food, Thai Pagosa wins for service and quiet environment. I enjoyed the salad and grilled filet steak. The steak was wonderful in every way - charred outside just right and perfectly cooked to my specification inside.

We went here on our 29th anniversary. The steak was the best ever, unfortunately, my husband ordered it and not me. I had the salmon with shrimp. I've had tastier, but is was good. If you go there get the steak!!

The acoustics of this restaurant are deafening. Tables are packed in like sardines. The chef attempts to combine ingredients that don't really go together such as adding pickled ginger to a Caesar salad. Same for the signature cocktails. Had the ahi tuna and lobster linguini, both were unremarkable.

sweetchef59, Owner at Alley House Grille, responded to this review

Dear lhuff238, Yes you are correct, when our restaurant is packed like the holiday season, when you were there, it can get very noisy. It is 1912 craftsman home with original fir floors and a brick fireplace. We are not a large modern restaurant, but we are a cozy romantic restaurant that sometimes can get loud depending on the kind... More

Family was in Pagosa for Christmas and we booked a reservation for Christmas Eve dinner. The ambiance was fantastic, quaint, & intimate - as Alley House Grille is an old home turned into a restaurant. The food was delicious - every member of my family thoroughly enjoyed what they had. My wife told me the next morning she was still... More

Liked it so much, went again the next day and tried something else on the menu. Food was excellent and so was the service. Great atmosphere for a cozy meal on a cold, snowy winter day.

We were in Pagosa for our wedding anniversary weekend and had dinner at the Alley House. Upscale by Pagosa Springs standards, yet not pretentious at all. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food excellent and the wine list was great. Not over priced for what you experience from the atmosphere, food, and staff. Great place.
