Absolutely perfect with no pretentiousness. The staff was knowledgeable and so fun. They paid amazing attention to detail. Not one request of mine was taken for granted. Full of creativity and culinary progress. I cannot wait to return.

Alinea is not just an exquisite meal. It is an epic evening full of surprises, deliciousness, and gracious hospitality, like the Disney World of haute dining. As a solo diner and a vegetarian, I was worried about being accommodated or bored during an hours long...More
