Our greeting was not the best and the lighting was poor,food and service were perfect.
The waiting staff were lovely. Although we were 10 mins early, there was a female staff member who worked at the bar. She didnt acknowledge us, so it would've been nice if she told us that she will have someone come see to us soon. Anyway, food was delicious. I loved the starter - grilled octopus. & the main, grilled chicken was divine. Cooked to perfection. Dessert was delicious - duck island icecream - 3 scoops! Lol! The atmosphere was very nice. Pretty decor, loved the big lights. Friendly staff, apart from the one who was working at the bar :(. So, all in all i had a lovely time there & it was my birthday. Thank you! Will definitely come back again!
the food was delicious and service was frienfly. i really enjoyed meals with my friends.
Waited too long for next drink order to arrive, had to get up and remind staff. I was informed she was putting the food order through. Then my salmon main meal was forgotten. Wasn’t a busy night.
j am a regular customer. The new Chef is doing a good job. I like his new menu starters but wish there were a seafood dish in with the mains. Value is good with the Accor card but I wish there were more special offers such as cheap beers, which Novotel used to have each week. I make a point of not recommending friends to restaurants.
waiter was hopeless
Food was great, but big took a long time tbetween first and last main course for the table, first meals out got cold awaiting the rest, they missed drink orders and ran out of wine glasses.
Excellent, friendly service. Delicious and well presented food
Our waitress was awesome!
Defintely worth the visit. Menu could be slightly bigger with choice - but we were all happy.
Rather nice. Good food. Relaxed service.
The food was delicious, the staff were friendly, welcoming, and paid us just the right amount of attention, not intrusive but very attentive. The time between the serving of courses was just right. The food really makes for a revisit and I have no hesitation in recommending Restaurant on Alma to others. Big thanks to all the staff for a wonderful dinning experience.
Food was exceptional. Service was good either. love it and will come back for sure.

Food was excellent. Would highly recommend.
Meal was very plesent. Presentation of some of you staff could be improved.
I have booked with other places with First Table and sometimes the attitude of staff towards someone paying 50% off food as compared to someone paying full price is different. But not at this restaurant. We had such a wonderful time. The staff made my wife's birthday so memorable, she touted that dinner as her best birthday dinner ever. Serene environment, amazing food and impeccable service with a genuine smile. Loved it. Thank you!
As always we enjoyed our dinner @ Restaurant On Alma. We were well looked after by Paris, The meals were presented beautifully and of course were delicious. Friendly staff, which is always appreciated. Many Thanks
