Another great visit to Alodia’s. The soup was pleasantly hot and the salads were fresh. Much more enjoyable for conversing with friends and a more elegant atmosphere than a noisy chain restaurant yet still casual. Perfect.

Yes! And although it's a bit small (seats maybe 6 across bar) the bartender is quick to remember your order and always willing to refill your glass!
