I have been to a few political fundraisers there and was so impressed I went back with my wife for dinner. Excellent taste and so delicious. You can tell much attention given by chef and owner. You will love it.

We are local but went to Alains for the first time just recently. We enjoyed it so much we went back less than two weeks later. We have had the mussels Catalan which are delicious and the broth you could drink. We have had duck, Rabbit and Lamb shank. Every morsel was a delight! The wine list has a variety... More

We've been to Alain's several times over the last couple of years and always came away thrilled and looking forward to going back. Their food has always been as good as it gets. I prefer it over Benoit (NYC & Paris) by Alain Ducaisse. The food at Alain's has always been just as good with a larger selection, more intimate... More

We were traveling from Boston to Pennsylvania and stopped overnight in Nyack. Delicious food, freshly cooked. I had sardines, my husband had mussels.

Although the menu is a bit too traditional for me, it was well prepared and the service was very good. Attentive staff and warm ambience.

In an inconspicuous strip mall in my home town of Nyack you can treat yourself to the exceptional service and cuisine at Alain's Bistro. One is always made to feel like an old friend in a casual atmosphere where the offerings are of the highest caliber

From the outstanding bread, through a cavalcade of superb dishes ( from the saffron flavored broth in the mussels, the onion soup with its two cheese cover, diver scallops, shell steak, seared salmon) every moment, every taste was a home run. This is truly the gem of the county, surpassing even our old favorite Restaurant X for the quality and... More

I went to this restaurant with two business colleagues, one of whom is from Belgium and the other an American who lived in France speaking regions of Europe for a number of years, so they are a hard crowd to impress! But the reception, food and general service at Alains French Bistro was outstanding. For starters we had pate and... More

We had a wonderful dining experience at the bistro. Alain greeted us at the door and also came to the table to discuss my special dietary needs. He was most understanding and helpful with the menu. He and I discussed my options with my medical restriction for a no salt diet. All of his recommendations were wonderful. Special notes were... More
