“Food was wonderful, hostess(Susan) was awful!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

We were greeted by a charming blond e hostess(Diane) that was very gracious and escorted us to the bar until the rest of our party arrived! We let her know when they arrived and within a few minutes we were approached by an extremely miserable woman (susan) that took us to our table and threw the menus down and walked away! Our server Kelly was great! Our food was so wonderful!!!! We enjoyed a few bottles of wine and we were enjoying our wine with dessert when Kelly under the "get these people outta here we need that table" eye of Susan took each glass pretty much out of our hand as we finished! Kelly was very apologetic and you could tell felt badly but Susan wanted us OUT!
Shame that such a nice place that has so much to offer has a miserable woman like that fronting the place! Awful!!!!
Maybe Diane or Kelly would fare better doing Susan's job as they showed genuine concern for the comfort of their guests!
I work in this business and ask everyone's name always as a courtesy to the person taking care of us! Susan, you were awful!
I would go back for the food and would recommend Alfies highly! Just be prepared for a very unpleasant welcome and don't overstay your welcome!

“Worth a try”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

The ambience is very warm and friendly and more upscale than most. The food was pretty good. The salad they bring to the table has way too much salad dressing. Had we known, we would've requested the dressing be served on the side. They have quirky rules when you request substitutions. If you want penne instead of spaghetti with one of the entrees, they charge you a dollar. Also, the eggplant special, which was about 3-4 medallions of fried eggplant were tasty but way overpriced. The food is good but not great.

“Best Restaurant in Wildwood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

My family and I recently spent a week in wildwood, and we tried quite a number of restaurants while there. By far, Alfe's was the best! If you are looking for good italian food at a reasonable price, look no further. We had initially tried it after a friend recommended it for dinner, and we ended up going 3 times!!

“Excellent Choice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

We've been going to Wildwood for many years and have tried lots of restaurants. We actually in Florida, my husband wearing a Wildwood Tee Shirt, and we got a recommedation for Alfies. We'd passed it many times but never tried it. What a mistake! We had a great dinner, ordered off a Sunset menu with unbelivably great prices. Going to Wildwood again in September and will surely visit Alfie's while we're there.

“Bad service, bad food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

For an upscale restaurant, I would never go back and would not recommend. The staff were in a hurry to serve us and send us packing. For an italian that advertizes that they make fresh pasta, it was horrible. The pasta was not al dente, my daughter's pasta floated in butter litterally, the ceasar salad was not good ( how can you screw up a caesar salad???). For a resto that serves plates that cost between 20$ and 30$ I would have ratter have had a hot dog and fries.
