One of the best restaurants I've been to in awhile. The food was AMAZING. I had the salmon and all I can say is I have never had seafood that good in Ohio before. The atmosphere is quiet and romantic. The decor is like walking back in time when you enter: copper colored tin ceiling, plush deep blue velvet seating,... More

It was worth the wait! The new decor is elegant and sophisticated, but still gives a nod to the traditional style of the building. The service can hold its own against any fine restaurant in a larger city. But I found the menu somewhat interesting. At one end of the spectrum you have an $8 sandwich, and at the other... More

The Alcove has been upgraded on all fronts. The menu features sophisticated and family-type dishes - all of which are intriguing - and the staff is professional and friendly. The dishes we ordered (salmon, oysters and steak) were all fresh and well prepared. Add to that the best wine list in Mount Vernon and appealing cocktail choices. Finally, the recent... More

The Alcove just reopened. It's been redesigned, at great expense, with exquisite seating areas - many cozy booths, a beautifully appointed bar, lovely private dining rooms. Be prepared - there's a concept here, and it's to evoke George Washington's Mount Vernon, paying homage to the namesake of Ohio's "colonial city." Sounds a bit unlikely or even staid in modern restaurant... More

This 100 year old restaurant recently underwent a complete overhaul so the decor, menu, and service have all been upgraded. The place is beautiful and the service is top notch. The menu has been completely redone as well. The salmon was excellent and the chicken was very good. The "fondue " appetizer is actually just melted cheese to spread on... More

First of all, it's absolutely stunning inside. Well done. It's beautiful without being pretentious and the staff, as always, is wonderful. I have Jennifer today for lunch and she is not only welcoming but very knowledgeable about the menu. She asked immediately about any food allergies I may have and then made a note of it for their system so... More

Wow! What a difference. The newly renovated space and menu are not to be missed. (Just reopened late March 2017 so ignore any prior reviews). If "swanky" is still a word, I would use it to describe the beautiful, velvety interior design. Our meals were skillfully prepared and delicious (I had scallops; hubby had cauliflower steak - I know, sounds... More

The Alcove has been under renovation for the past six months and just reopened for business and it is spectacular. The food is nothing short of mouth watering. The pecan crusted trout is the best I have ever had. We were here opening night and the service was impeccable even though the restaurant was booming. The inside was been completely... More
