Perfect spot for date night, food was delicious- lettuce wraps were spot on ( honestly we could have made an entree out of them) and salmon was cooked perfectly! Our server was just okay, he could have been a little more attentive and paid attention to the empty drinks on the table...

Food and server were great. Hostess forgot about us so our 7:45 reservation ended up being an hour wait while a couple of walk ins were seated ahead of us. Don’t waste your time on a reservation. Just go and wait.

They have a varied menu in choice and price and some wonderful specials. Drinks were full bodied and they had a nice selections of wines. Seafood chowder was outstanding. We had duck pot pie and Chilean seabass, both of which were excellently prepared.
We were seated in the bar area and it was quite noisy and difficult for the eight of us to have a conversation. If you go, request the dining room.

I wasn’t happy that we were seated in the bar, even with reservations. Also, our waiter was not attentive at all. We were waiting for drinks, waiting for appetizers- for what seemed to be a longer then normal wait. Other tables had received their drinks and appetizers prior to us, even though we had ordered first.

They make an amazing espresso martini! They also make my favorite lunch which is their ahi tuna entree. I want to try other things but this is so perfect that I get it every time. The burgers, fajitas, salads all are so tempting as they look delicious. I like that they are enclosing and making the front patio larger. This is one of my favorite restaurants.

This was my second visit to 59 Almshouse. I got the blackened mahi tacos and they were good and plentiful. My sister got the Italian chicken which she enjoyed.
Great service and good food. Win/win

Food was a little slow for brunch. Service by Carol is always a pleasure, and the new bartender is a fantastic addition to the staff... Very nice young man that remembered us from his second day of work...
After 8 visits in the past 3 months, it's very nice to be remembered, even if its by the brand new guy...

This is now the second time we have fined at 59 Almshouse. The first time was last New Year’s Eve where despite having reservations still had to wait thirty minutes for a table. Our table was the only table for two that was placed in a room with a party of twenty. Talk about awkward. We decided to give it a second try. Again, our table was not ready when we arrived despite having a reservation. After twenty minutes, we were seated. Our table was in between two very loud parties in the bar area. It was so close to the other tables that it was extremely difficult to hear each other talk not to mention the fear of waiters knocking over our drinks trying to pass by. I ordered the half rack of ribs and my husband ordered the ribeye steak. Nothing about the food was memorable. The green beans were dry with no taste, the jalapeño cornbread was too spicy to eat and I enjoy spicy food and the ribs were ok. My husband’s steak was cooked perfectly but it was just a steak nothing special. We thought trying the restaurant on a typical Friday night that things would be better but sadly we were disappointed.

Great food, great service. Sat near the bar, so it was a little noisy, which I think provides a little more privacy for talking.

I love the menu at 59 Almshouse. There are enough options where I do not have to eat the same thing every time I go. My fav choice is the Mahi Mahi Fish Sandwich. The fish is really fresh and delicious. I also love their cobb salad. But I really try to try something different when I go. I am never disappointed.

I am very disappointed with the Maitre D she did not noted our reservation in the computer despite asking her twice. ( she was not the kindest either)

Open table notified me that I missed my reservation so I had to send all kind of proofs.

Food was really good!!! Calamari was especially delicious. But food kept coming out when none of our dishes had been cleared. We just had dishes and empty drinks piling up on the table. I finally asked that some of them be taken away. They were especially busy on a Saturday night so I understand. But it was a bit annoying. Food was so good it’s worth a second shot at the average service
