Chicago >Alhambra Palace Restaurant
“This is a beatiful restaraunt with amazing decor, food is excellent, priced well, portions are generous and service is fast and friendly.”
“reasonably priced and the desserts were great.”
“Personally, I thought the ambience was nice, the entertainment was pretty good (especially the main chic that was belly dancing), but the food & drinks were just okay in my opinion.”
“Again excellent food, great for a fun date too, also great entertainment, it really starts from the people, moves on with the excellent food, and ends with a great entertaining night, They give great portions as well, and it is not too expensive.”
“Once another waiter knocked a menu out of my dad's hand and a few minutes later spilled a drink all over his nice suit.”
“If you want great authentic middle eastern cuisine this is the place to come.”
“My wife however, absolutely loved the place and wants to go there again.”
“The only plus - the waiter was congenial and the bus staff tried to be attentive.”
“The decor was beautiful but prices were jacked up to pay for it and for the show.”
“The service was slow, and every time we asked for something, it took at least 20 minutes to get it.”
Great Night To Dine With. We have a great night in this place. The food was absolutely great and delicious. The service was great also.
Exotic experience. What an exotic experience without the airfare!
Salsa night was great. went here for the first time last night... omg was it beautiful! The salsa night was great too, awesome dj's
The food is so delicious. Honestly I never seen a place like this amazing place...I don't know how to start but all I can say is just go and check it out and trust me u will be going there any time to go out... the food is so delicious and the service is good bcuz they just opened up and they didn't expect that capacity. Oh my god I don't know what to tell u about there shows which includes the best balley dancer in the U.S. Soraya.
Most amazing scenery. This will always be a favorite!!!! A most amazing scenery, entertainment on the weekends and the food is not to disappoint. Whether it is a private party or a first date, definitely a charmer.
Extremely fresh and tastes very good. I had the Lamb Tajin, tasted the sea food platter and Lamb shank. The lamb is extremely fresh and tastes very good. the decor is amazing
Alhambra is a must do!!!. 24,000 square feet of beauty. This place is like walking into the castle in Aladdin. The staff is wonderful. Especially the CUTE Vip Host Alan! I am newly vegatarian so finding food I actually like has been a task. I let the server know my limitations. He picked my food for me!! He did great! The Hummus was wonderful. You can tell the Pita was homemade. The Falafels were to die for! Alexandria (the belly dancer) was a showstopper. I even got up to dance. Alhambra is a must do!!!
The memorable food was delicious. I can't say enough good things about this gorgeous restaurant. I noticed some of the one-star reviews on here, and perhaps this place does not give the same amount of attention to their casual guests as they do to their wedding clients. I have no complaints. The lavish, authentic decor inside solidifies the desire to transform our guests to a place very distant from Chicago. The memorable food was delicious, plentiful and prepared authentically - one that comes to mind that I loved on my wedding day was cumin crusted salmon over a mountain of caramelized couscous and vegetables. The staff made me feel like a queen that day. My friends and family both near and far talk about my wedding everytime I see them, and we still get constant compliments regarding Alhambra.
The staff was extremely friendly.
I went to dine at the Alhambra Palace with my girlfriend on August 28, which was on a Friday. Let me start of by saying that the outside looks like Aladdin's Palace, it's surreal. I walked through the doors and was immediately greeted by smiling faces at the host desk. The friendly staff escorted me to the back where another host took me to my table. Sitting at my table I could not help but to feel the Mediterranean ambiance. My server was a young female with a European accent. She was friendly and very attentive. She suggested we try the Alhambra Platter, wow that was so much food and very delicious. The dessert was to die for, I had a bomba which is a fruit sherbet ball inside white chocolate. My girlfriend had the chocolate pyramid, I tried some and I can just describe it as chocolate fluff goodness.
The best part of the whole night was the free entertainment. They had a belly dance group called Read my Hips, wow these ladies sure could move it. Even though it was CD music I felt their performance. I felt as if I was in right in the center of the Middle East as I enjoyed an authentic performance. I will bring my friends and family here. The staff was extremely friendly and the food was so delicious that thinking about it makes my mouth water. Go Alhambra Palace, there is no other place like this in Chicago!!!
Best dancers in Chicago.
Tuesday night is Salsa Night! (and Friday nights)
By far Tuesday night Salsa at the Alhambra is THE best salsa event of the week. First of all the space is beautiful and huuge. Live bands depending on the season, is also another huge hit with this place.
This is the night where the best dancers in Chicago come out to bust a move on the dance floor.
Can be intimidating, but wow, fun to watch!
There is so much energy in here especially for a Tuesday night, you would not believe it.
Tip: parking is scarce between 10.30pm-12am
Cover is $10 or $15 for live band night. Get on the guestlist for 1/2 off before 9pm.
Friday night salsa is upstairs in the other room. It's ok. Still lots of people but I prefer the main room dance floor.
