The halibut was dry, lacking flavor. Even adding hot sauce to it did not improve the taste. Beef tenderloin was okay; but nothing special. Beef tartare was sweet and spicy (the sauces were overpowering the taste of the actual beef). Lobster tempura- nothing special. Chocolate cake - hard, although the colour was dark, it wasn't rich chocolate feel. What stood... More

Hidden away. I would have never went there would it not have been for my friend who lieves just outside the city. It had very, very good service, very good food; nice and quiet; just what one wants to discuss business. Very pleasant atmosphere. A good wine selection rounds up the quality this place offers. I will go ther again... More

First time I've eaten here and it was a business meal, so out to impress. I was not disappointed. The waitress was very nice and service was great. Food was very good and both my guest and I enjoyed it. I would highly recommend this place for both business and pleasure.

We went to Alloy for a ladies' night - it is a funky place, loved the cocktails, and the food was amazing. It is expensive, so save it for a special occasion or a fun night out with friends when you're ready to spoil yourself a bit!

Alloy is a modern decor, hip restaurant bar. Our most recent visit in July surprised us because the usually packed, lively restaurant was a bit quiet-maybe because it was during STAMPEDE. Reception is pleasant and efficient. Wine and table services are friendly and knowledgeable, and the food is of high quality- delicious and well presented. Overall, Alloy is on our... More

What a fantastic experience. Took my wife for her birthday here. It's located in an unassuming location off MacLeod Trail, the ambiance is 50's with a bit of a Mad Men vibe. We were seated in one of the beautiful booths, with comfortable seats. We started out with some drinks, wife ordered the Trophy Wife and I ordered the Amarillo... More

I had heard and read about Alloy for years but never made it. For our 9th anniversary we made reservations and we are very glad we did. We missed the turnoff, its very unassuming, even as you walk up to the doors. But once you enter, its a different place. We sat outside next to the water feature and huge... More
