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

Pros: it serves alcohol, isn't a stuffy Rittenhouse bar

Cons: cougars, bad sound system, cheesy gig posters on the walls, lame

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!!

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

Pros: Great food, friendly staff, awesome bar menu

Cons: Parking (but SEPTA's new late night train service on weekends helps alleviate this, only a short walk from Suburban Station)

I had high hopes, the ambience was very nice, and the menu looked great! But beyond that, my hopes were dashed. our appetizers didn't arrive for 30 MINUTES and they were cold. No one took our drink orders while we were sitting, so we

Cons: bad food and service

Just the type place to go after a nice show for drinks or for a nightcap after a date. I will say that as nice as the place was, the food left a little to be desired. Won't stop me from going back, but nice establishments that offer the

I just had to write a review, because I Agree with Hotflygirl that just posted 6/7. We stopped in on Friday night on a friend's recommendation... Just fabulous place. I made reservation for a table for 10 of us.... We ended up being more

Last night 3 friends took me to ALFA for my birthday and the evening couldn't have been better! From the decor, drink menu, great booth for a group of 4, friendly & helpful staff, to the amazing food. We all drank, ate and laughed and will

Went to happy hour with my coworkers while we were visiting Philly. I suggested Alfa because I came in about a month ago and I liked the low key atmosphere with reasonably priced drinks and unbelievably awesome food! -- this was just what

Last night (4/4) I threw my 29th Birthday dinner party @ Alfa and my god - not one complaint from any my guests! Every single person left saying they had a great time. I loved it, I've eaten at Alfa a couple times last month, so I know

I had my B-day dinner/party at Alfa this past Friday night. The food was unbelievable. After we ate we moved the party into the lounge and had a blast. The music was really good We tried several of the bartenders special shots also

I went to Alfa Bar over the weekend with friends from college that I haven't seen in years and had the best time ever. The atmosphere was hot (hottest girls ever) with a great lounge feel. We had drinks and some appetizers and ate dinner.

One Word WOW!!!! The name Alfa makes you think of some upscale, stuffy, uptight bar that only the elite of Rittenhouse could afford, thats far from the truth. The servers are hip,young and edgy, the bartenders are some of the best I have

I went to Alfa for a summertime happy hour with some friends from work. The decor is supposed to be "stylish" and it looks like it came from a West Elm catalog. That, to me, is kind of boring, easy, and not at all unique or interesting.

Pros: Great food, reasonably priced, in Ritttenhouse

Don't waste your time. Terrible service. The male bartender that worked the Friday night I was there was too busy talking to serve.

You'd think a restaurant with such a great location (Rittenhouse Square) would really step it up to cater to the upper class crowd in this area. However, Alfa greatly disappoints. Service was slow and sloppy. Our server last week was far

It's got good looking people, relaxed vibe and a really good draght beer selection. The food is also pretty good but a little slow and 80s happy hour was pretty cool. Plus, Walnut Room is just above so you can alternate between noddin' to

My friend and I tried this spot for Happy Hour after a very long day at work. Innovative and really delicious drink menu at Alfa. The food was great, but service was a bit long. I recommend the Meditteranean Sampler---excellent Baba
