ALFA seeks out the freshest seasonal ingredients, many of which come from local producers. Our menu changes often as we find new things to offer. We are an entirely scratch kitchen, and we are especially proud of our vegetarian selections... We have a great kid's menu also ... Join us for Sunday Brunch... Enjoy our patio for the best in casual outdoor dining (well behaved pooches welcome outdoors).

Great for summer lunch

My friend and I are picky about the places we eat at, but we had a wonderful experience at Alfa. We loved basking in the sun on the outside patio (very green which is hard to find in the city) and absolutely loved our lunch of spicy watermelon soup, wild salmon with fresh vegetables and subsequent ice coffee. The service was great too. I do wish that the prices were little lower, but we had a fabulous time and experience overall! PS I only got a glance at the indoor seating, and I was not impressed with the atmosphere. But the outside patio is just wonderful and something I really miss in the US!

Not going to make it.

Curious menu given the long-term Saratoga customer-base, and the L ‘Adour followers. But that aside, food is poor, both in terms of preparation and presentation. At any price point really, never mind at Alfa’s fine dining prices. It’s apparent which of the two former L’ Adour owners was the chef.

Service can be good, or bad, depending on who’s in the kitchen and on the floor. Also, the French attitude is always lurking with several staff, carry-overs from L ‘Adour. The bar, isn’t one really; clearly ownership has no idea of how to market and run one and that’s a shame because it’s a good space, separate from the rest of the operation and should be a destination all by itself. Overall there seems to be a lack of professional vision or business plan to the whole place.

The d├ęcor is down-scale, tho’ a mighty improvement on the old run-down Saratoga. Also, lack of adequate capital is showing with the gutted, unfinished main dining room space.

All of this does not hold promise for the restaurant’s survival.

a let down

I was really looking forward to a new dining experience, especially since this is such a great location to do something different. Instead, it felt like an overpriced Kirby’s. The decor and layout is sterile. The food was average -- definitely overpriced for the ambience. I was actually surprisingly unimpressed--I expected so much more based on the owner’s other restaurant.

Not impressed. Very disappointed.

Alfa is just what Syracuse doesn’t need…another haughty restaurant experience that’s overpriced and under delivers.

A 15 dollar hamburger that sets a new high (low) in ground beef pricing.

A 12 dollar shrimp cocktail with 6 of the smallest room temperature shrimp you’ll ever enjoy.

Drink prices that rival NYC.

And I’m sorry, the decor, white and cowhide brown just doesn’t cut it.

Syracuse wants a great meal at a fair price and if after all these years you haven’t figured that out after your downtown experience, then you’re missing the ball.

Dishes I tried:

Shrimp cocktail

Small, room temperature and nothing like a chilled shrimp cocktail should be like.
