“Great Experience”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

In town for business, but had dinner at Alba with friends on a Tuesday. First experience was the very friendly hostess that welcomed us. Because of very high winds we chose not to eat outside, but view was incredible. We decided to have drinks and dinner at the bar. We were immediately greeted by the friendly bartender and ordered drinks. Before dinner was served, they brought out fresh warm cheesebread with an eggplant dip. Found out they bake everything fresh on premise. For dinner, I had the very fresh Mahi Mahi and my friend had the steak. Both were excellent! Ralph Pagano stopped by a few times. Great guy with lots of stories. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for food, service and setting. We will definitely return and hope to sit outside next time.

“Incredible service with amazing food delivered right to you on the beach!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

I came in town with a couple of my girlfriends and we were recommended Alba by a friend. Chris and Rebecca took great care of us. They made us feel so welcomed and we had the best time! After we arrived and ordered drinks at the bar, they went over the menu with us and recommended their favorites white taking into consideration my friends food allergies. To our surprise they told us we could go lay out at the beach and they would bring the food directly to us! How perfect?! Chris, the manager, brought out a table and personally delivered all of our food. He and Rebecca constantly checked on us and made sure our drinks stayed full! We had such an incredible time here and it was a great way to start off our vacation! Friendly service and good food is a rare thing to find in Miami, and they went above and beyond for us. I can't wait to go back when I visit next month :)

Loved the oysters and chicken wings. The chef/owner? is very welcoming and friendly, and we received 5 star service. Alba is a must-go spot!
