Loved Alonso's – Went with a friend of mine. We both ordered steaks, a ribeye & a porterhouse. Both were cooked perfectly and served by a friendly waiter. We also liked the ambiance very much.
wrong place – I went to Alonso's last night and we had made reservation, which I think we lost because we were running late, stocked in traffic, so when we got there the hostess told us we should wait at the bar for 10 or 15 minutes, we agreed and I was really excited to show my group of friends the place so small and details of a hunting cabin.
But we were sat in the next door restaurant even due they gave us a table right away it was not what we wanted, also a different menu, very loud with old music and noisy conversations of people on top os us. Last time I had eaten at Alonso's was totally different. But with this experience, I do not think I will be coming back. to go to a noisy italian restaurant, I'd stay in little italy.
THANK YOU FOR RUINING OUR EVENING MISTER MANAGER.
Overcooked and overpriced – Avoid going to Alonso's Steakhouse unless you enjoy paying for a dinner you didn't order.
A few weeks ago my partner ordered the filet mignon medium-rare with steak frites. I ordered the rib eye medium-rare with baked potato. My entree had frites instead of a baked potato and my steak had no pink or red at all and no juice, it was dry and brown all the way through. Any piece I cut was dry and brown all the way through. My partner cut into his filet and his was not medium-rare either.
The server's apology was that there was a new person in the kitchen that was unfamiliar with the grill.
I'm surprised that our entrees were prepared with so little attention to our order, that's really sloppy service. To top it all off I wrote to the email address listed on their website describing our experience, and after a week with no response I sent another which they also ignored.
Avoid this place. My experience tells me that Alonso's Steakhouse doesn't care about their food or their customers.
Interesting Decor, Average Food, Bad Soundtrack – I picked this place after seeing the 5-star rating on Citysearch. But I didn't find the food anywhere close to 5-star; it wasn't terrible - but not very good either. The decor is interesting, but they ought to really stop blasting the 70's love songs. Ruins any ambiance they're trying to create.
EXCELENT PERSONAL SERVICE – Lovely place and a geat personaliced service by our waiter Luis. We were at Alonso's this past friday and I gave my boyfriend a dinner gift with some of our friends I picked this place because of the hunting theme and he loved that many heads hanging on the walls. Our stakes were fabulous, we all had porterhouses, since that is what we were encouraged to have when we saw them going to another table. the borelais sauce was out of this world not that the stakes needed any. when dessert came I scaped to the bathroom to let Luis know about Bratt's birhtday, and it was extranged that he asked about his name I told him, my sourprise that he came with a delicious chocolate mousse and singing happy birhtday with the rest of the staff and the mentioned happy birthday Bratt, no other place they have done that before, Nice and lovely way to do bussiness.
a T bone not a porterhouse – earlier on the week we had dinner at alonsos and we had been there before and had a nice experience, so we cameback to try something different, and my boyfriend had to say something abut to the ribeye, which was tasteless like a old frosten for too long and my porterhouse, was not what I had heard before, I could not find any filet mignon quality on it. sorry, for the staff that are very nice, but not a stake house quality meats.
However the wine list is still a great bargain, so is the creamy spinach.
A lovely Night! – Last Night I went to Alonso's for dinner with my boyfriend. We had a very lovely evening. The food was fresh and very tasty. The cream of spanish is amazing! The prices are good and the service very helpful. I highly recommend!!!
Best Steak joint for the money! – Prices are right. Steaks were perfect. Service exceptional. Me and 5 others guys have been doing Steak night for years and usually went to Frankie & Johnnys in Hoboken or NYC. This place with the old butcher shop feel (and taxidermist) was a great change from the stuffiness of F&Js or the others we went to. No problem getting a table too. Sides were delicious also. Apps a bit lacking but overall a great steak joint.
EXCELENT STAKES FABULOUS SERVICE – I was in Alonso's this weekend which was a bussy night for what we could see no tables available at that time, thank god we had a recervation it was six of us. the cute hostess guided us to our table a nice view of all the dead animals heads we had, not that my wife cared about it. our friends were delited, Our waiter was nice on time available when we needed him(Luis I remember his name. my friends were flirting with him, he didn't seem to mind) We were here for the first time, so we ask Luis what he recomended, he was nice and said, besides everything. I can tell you my favorites and he sugested the porter house and ribeye, but also the filetmignon is great he said. we ordered two dozens mixed oysters, they were nice and fresh. Luis brought the wines we had ordered. nice and not too expensive which we were surprised of the selection they have. We all left so happy that we made reservations for our coming gathering in december.
