Excellent food and service with Alona's personal touch and attention to detail. My husband ordered the eggplant parmesean and I got the shrimp pasta. Both were delicious with generous servings -- we'll be enjoying them again tomorrow for lunch. I highly recommend.

We did the Lebanese dinners, and each course was fantastic. Soup was special, hummus was delicious, chicken and rice were both unique and prime. Dessert was great but we had to take it home. We've also had the artichoke dip and it's good too. Service...More

We can make much better food ourselves at home. They didn't have any lamb left and still charged more than a normal night because "lamb is expensive" per the owner! don't waste your time.

Small restaurant that seats about 60 people, very simple. International food is amazing! The cost is steep at first glance at $27 but it is four course. We have visited when serving from Peru, Switzerland, Hawaii, Italy and Holland and have not been disappointed yet....More

Small little out of the way place that the locals flock to. Alona changes the weekend menu regularly and serves various different and regional foods. One weekend may be German, the next, south pacific. And it's always great.
