Went to restaurant next door but wanted good beer. This place has "decent" beer and very high prices. I ate at the bar and did not eat much but paid 130 dollars for 2 people. Too much for what we got. Bar tender was not knowledgeable on beverages.

Brunch was great, warm welcoming atmosphere, wonderful creative food.The maple bacon popcorn was a perfect appetizer. And it's always good when you ask for crispy fires and them come out crispy... I would definitely recommend Alobar....

Visiting NY, staying in LIC, after visiting Manhattan all say decided to stay local for dinner. Everything was great - both food and service. Enjoyed the pierogies, the pork dish and an alobar for dessert. All great. Good stop in LIC.

I ate here recently while visiting family in the area. This was a fun evening. The combination of small plates and larger entrees really lends itself to a group. Our party chose a number of small plates and two larger entrees. The food was interesting and we particularly enjoyed the octopus and pirogues. Indeed everything was great. The service was... More

Shared an appetizer and the steak which was cooked a perfect medium rare. Enjoyed the dinner and wine. We then shared a Chocolate Hazelnut Bread Pudding with a Double... More

We had dinner at Alobar while visiting our son in Long Island City. It has a nice relaxed ambiance and is not too noisy. Very comfortable. We started dinner by sharing the Maple Bacon Popcorn. Even though I do not go out to dinner to eat popcorn, I have to admit it was spot on as a summer nibble. We... More

In a search for affordable place outside Manhattan, we were pointed to LIC where we ended up at ALOBAR. I can say only the best for their food and barman is a top expert. Was surprised with Grappa from Malvasia which is pretty endemic for Istria region, but my revelation was Tempelton rye, that was presented by barman. We had... More

We stopped in for their sweet and savory popcorn with bacon. It was absolutely delicious. The beer on tap was also cold and refreshing.
