    It was empty, the event we made reservations for was cancelled without notice, and the place smelled of spilled liquor and unclean bathrooms. We went across the street to Sevilla and had a wonderful time, with live music and great food.

    We wanted to take my mom out to lunch for her birthday. I’ve passed this place many times and it was right down the street from my church. Everything was great except the music was a little loud, which we weren’t expecting. My dad is 85 so we were a little worried but then my mom started bopping to the songs and my dad was loving the guacamole so it was ok. Overall we had a good time. The service and food were excellent.

    Apon arriving the hostess was busy on her phone and did not great us. When we went be seated our party had to assemble the tables. I have eaten here a few times before and the service was much better and attentive then this time. Food was good, the problem was with the service as if it was inconvenient that we were there.

    The food was terrible, paid 30 a plate would have thought the food would have been better. The reservation was messed up, was not happy with it. However that part did work out cause the show was not worth the 40.00. It was. 15 min of stopping and swinging of the arms - basically a dance that you saw In The 4 grade at a school assembly. This was supposed to be a date and at the end I felt I fail on picking a location that was going to be fun.

    Food and music was good but the service sucked! Drinks were watered down, basically was a cup of juice. It was good Juice though lol. Our waiter partied outside with a couple of other tables. She barely came to check on us just to see if we wanted anything else and she seemed very stand-off ish with us. Like she wasn’t interested in helping us decide what was best or her recommendations on what to order or best drinks to get. We have 4 people in our party w/ a reservation for 5 but the 5th person cancelled last minute. They charged us over $50 for gratuity that clearly stated on the receipt party of 6 or more. When asked about it the waitress stated, “oh I thought you had a party over 6.” We asked her to remove it and she said “oh well it’s for COVID”. I honestly only gave 3 stars for the food. Definitely isn’t a place worth the hassle or the amount of money we spent.

    Waitress wasn't on point. I had to tell her when to take our dinner order since our appetizers were almost done. Table wasn't wiped down before dessert. I had to clear the plates to get them off our table. I asked her for dessert menu and she told me the desserts as I was walking to the bathroom instead of presenting this to the 5 people I had at my table. It was my daughters 19 bday I had to ask twice for her to bring dessert with candle. Waited even longer for the check. She never asked if my friend and I even wanted another drink ...(speciality drinks were good) had she asked we would have definitely ordered another....I was just tired with trying to flag her down constantly. We got to see the Flamenco performance from the patio. However, had they opened the patio door it would have been more like we were part of the experience instead of being outsiders. Presentation of food was good but my salmon and others chicken was dry like it had been sitting under the heat lamp. My friend ordered fajitas and when she was almost done with her meal they brought her tortillas and rice and apologized for forgetting. Not sure if they are short staff or just incompetent of waiting tables. Won't be returning.

    Had not been to Alegria since long before Covid but chose to go for our special occasion because we remembered how fun and delicious it always was. We were cordially greeted & seated in the front area - which seemed to lack any ambiance at all. I recalled last time there, we were seated in back near the entertainment - but no entertainment on this particular night - we overlooked it & figured it was due to Covid. Our drinks arrived and soon after that, meals came. I would’ve liked my ceviche a bit more flavorful with at least more lemon or lime juice, but we let it go and enjoyed our night out. Overall it was good but this once lively spot seemed tired and in need of a refresh... I hope to return when there is live music and a lively vibe!!

    Was nice and quiet when we arrived, then there was a band and flamenco dancers. Claudia our server had amazing customer service and was super helpful. The food was quite tasty and on point as well as the drinks. It got a bit loud towards the end with the dj playing music so I could hardly hear. Otherwise, it was quite a good experience.

    Haven't been here in a number of years; decided to visit for our wedding anniversary. Sat inside which was okay; should have sat outside on one of the patios as the music inside was very loud. We were the only people sitting inside! The food was great! I had the salmon which was great and the accompanying items (rice and plantains) were delicious. Rice was phenomenal. Garnish on salmon perfect and tasty. Husband ordered a steak dish and loved it. Beside the loud music, we were not happy with the calamari appetizer. We've had "chewy" calamari on occasion at various establishments, however, this was beyond chewy and was rubbery and tasteless. Maybe a bad batch (?) We didn't eat it all though we really wanted to enjoy it. However, overall a great meal and nice to go somewhere different for a change. Will go back; sorry we waited so long to do so.

    We had a reservation and the waitress didn’t come to our table for 15 minutes. The only reason she came over was because we stopped someone and told them We hadn’t been helped yet. Our waitress was walking past us helping all the tables around us, but ours. When she did come over, there was no acknowledgement or anything. There seemed to be a lot of confusion of which waitress had our table.

    Had our Valentine’s Day dinner here and it had some of the best filet mignon I have ever had! Perfectly cooked and served with sautéed mushrooms, sautéed spinach and a remarkable croquette. To drink we ordered the peach sangria and it was delicious! Place turns into a lounge after dinner and man was that poppin!

    Alegria is such a lively place. I loved my food and my server attended well. I didn’t like my seats. My seat was ripping and the corner seemed more occupied with people lining up for the bathroom.
