nice place to just hang out. on walnut street, so there’s always a lot of people. a nice substitute for the buttercup bakery which used to occupy the same space. decent food too.

I don't know what kind of standards the other reviewers on this site have, but Alfa is pretty lame. Granted it isn't a stuffy, superficial Rittenhouse bar, the decor is tacky and their sound system is awful. It's basically just a space…

Fabulous Food

I tasted your food at a champagne tasting benefit and I can't wait to try your restaurant. Your food was fabulous and for such a great cause. I will be sure to visit your location soon. Thank you!!

great food, good service, intriguing atmosphere

Went there on restaurant week 2008 with a group, mainly because it was the first place we called at the last minute that still had a reservation available (well over 24 hours prior to the reservation time...). So, it was a bit of a shot…

Late Night Small plates Good for groups
  • While the restaurant is one long room, patrons can sit in one of three areas: the bar, a table or on a sofa in back.
  • The kitchen cranks out a full menu until 1am.
  • The mango martini -- one of the city's first -- is still the tastiest in town.
  • Go upstairs for a post-meal fun at Alfa's Walnut Room--a long-time hipster watering hole with amazing cocktails, smart DJs, a cozy dance floor and the occasional record-release party.
  • Call ahead to reserve a plush couch in the lounge area for your party. Dining or just drinking? Both are acceptable.
  • Festive happy hours (Mon-Fri, 5pm-7pm) are inspired by the decade that brought us alpha-chick Joan Collins and the late Zen master Mr. Miagi--now two of Alfa's signature drinks.
  • Daily happy hours feature extensive cocktail menus with drinks named after funny icons from the 1970's and '80s.
