    We enjoyed a wonderful meal and great bottle of French wine last evening! Service was great. Only 2 modest comments on potential improvements--the ambiance is a bit on the cold side vs. warm and cozy. Also I really like to see some sort of green vegetable come with the main entree, but there were none. We did enjoy greatly the pear and goat cheese salad though.

    Great food and good service. Wine pours are a little stingy for the per glass price, and the main dining room was a little chilly. But all in all, an enjoyable evening. The salmon was particularly delicious.

    The outside tables are quiet, but inside the noise was deafening. My companion and I could not really carry on a conversation over the noise. The food was good and the service prompt and perfect, but quite expensive in relation to other nearby restaurants (within two blocks) that are at least as good or better. And quieter even when full of diners.

    We went for brunch, not sure what to expect. We were very pleased with our choices (chorizo omelette and BLT sandwich). We had brought our two poodles and the outdoor area was perfect with tables spaced far enough from each other. The best part was the lovely waitress who offered friendly,, personalized service. Didn't catch her name but she said she usually doesn't work the tables. She is a huge asset to your restaurant and, based on the excellent service she provided, should be promoted immediately. We will definitely be back very soon.

    I love sitting outdoors at this place. We’ve had several really great meals here. Each dish is so conscientiously prepared and served. The waiter is a hoot and always remembers us, which is so nice. Our grandson was with us and he was treated so respectfully too. This is a very special place.

    Just a little bday brunch for my teen niece. As always, excellent. I had the seared skirt steak and eggs with chimichurri, roasted potatoes and salad. Yes! They crisped the edges of the meat in an oh-so-delicious way. Would eat that every Sunday if I could. Her mom raves about the short rib omelette too. Natch, we’ll be back.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our food and experience for my husband’s birthday dinner. We went a little overkill on the appetizers but it was worth it. Entree choices were beef filet (best mashed potatoes - so creamy!!) and homemade pasta bolognese. Delicious all around! We will be back.

    We had the devil eggs and figs baby spinach salad. Eggs are not what I expected comparing to others. The salad has no dressing, and we didn't bother to ask why. The sheared black cod fish is good. But the beef short ribs are kind of dry and hardly any gravy served. The cherry tomatoes came with the black cod were cold. Horrible dishes for the prices. Servers were very tentative. The reviews I saw here are mostly over rated. I don't recommend this place.

    We have been here for a few times, this time it was disappointing. The caviar has no taste, and they served with pickles and thick bread. the short ribs were a bit dry and very blend, no taste nor favor. We sat upstair and the noise level was acceptable, I know downstair will be noisy. The services were a bit slow.

    Devil farmed egg. Wish they would state how many on the menu, or the wait staff would inform us that we are only getting 1 pc. It’s a little awkward when you have two people and one egg comes out.

    We had a great time! just a few notes: Let's start positive: they have a lovely terrasse on a beautiful patio outside, and their service was very good! On the not so great note: Their caviar toast is too creamy and crunchy, which hides the savory of this delicate taste. The wine was served too hot, it was a hot day but for the price they were asking, it was disappointing. The chicken "a la diabla" is quite spicy! no mention on the menu and no-one to tell us. We would have chosen a different wine if we knew. Overall good experience!

    Our server seemed rushed and less than friendly. I have eaten well-prepared octopus, and the dish at this restaurant was overcooked, chewy and tough. The sauce for the mussels tasted like canned tomato soup, and the accompanying bread was tasteless. Both of our desserts were good. Food, drinks, wine and ambience were all overpriced for what we received.

    I would return for brunch and want to return for their dinner. My husband, son and I went for Saturday brunch. My son was looking forward to the seared ahi tuna but it was not offered during brunch. Irregardless each item we ordered was beautifully presented, included tasty local ingredients, and tasted delicious. I would return for dinner with my son who could order the seared ahi tuna if our brunch experience went well. After the appetizers, mimosas, entrees and excellent customer service (thank you Trevor) I’m happy to say I’ll be retuning for their dinner. Here’s what we ordered: - Zucchini bread - Brie - Skirt steak with eggs and chimichurri - Short rib omelette - French toast

    Mussel appetizer was very very good, especially with their freshly baked side of bread for the delicious sauce. I would say the oysters were just okay and not quite worth it. The Branzino fish entree was an absolute star. All of their cocktails are forth it.

    The atmosphere was great, the service was great, but the food was not good. I appreciated the accommodations, but my order was incredibly bland and unseasoned. They did not add any salt at all. The drinks were good, I would definitely recommend going for cocktails but not staying for dinner.

    food and service was excellent, and we will return, however, the restaurant should consider building a level platform for the ally tables as it was uncomfortable sitting on a slant and use table cloths, this is a high end restaurant should not be putting cutlery down on a bare table,

    A&V is the slam dunk Alameda brunch spot! Trevor took care of us again on a warm Sunday noon. Their Avo Toast is simply amazing. Chorizo Omelette, Shakshouka and Brie Pastry are solid heavyweights. Like their Moca coffee too. Next time I’ll walk over and try their famous cocktails……
