I'm a huge foodie - and now visit Almar at least once a week. Cheese Crostini's and Alfredo's meatballs are tops. If you want a wonderful meal without pretense - this place nails it.

Valentine's day marked my 20th visit to this restaurant and as usual, all was perfect. The food there is always incredibly balanced between "secret" family recipes with real homemade feel and the sophistication of an upscale restaurant. Atmosphere is cozy and very pleasant. A real gem... I wish they would take credit cards, I would be there even more often.

I've lived in DUMBO for 8 years, and this is the first time I've been so impressed by a neighborhood restaurant. I look forward to bringing all my friends here, when they are new to Dumbo. The atmosphere is cozy, and enchanting. The owner and waitstaff are very warm and friendly. I have had the mussels, pasta and ribs here... all amazing and great value. The portions are a good size too. The staff made me feel very welcome and comfortable. I haven't written a review on here, ever, ... but I love this place, and want it to stick around... so I am taking the time to tell everyone how great it is. Go there and enjoy! :-)

We had a small wedding dinner at ALMar for about 18 people. We had the most amazing time, with excellent service and great food. The owner's went out of their way to make it a fantastic event. I can not thank them enough for giving us a most memorable wedding dinner for our friends and family.

I eat at Almar, or Dumbo General as I generally refer to it, at least once a week and sometimes 3 times a week. The food i spectacular and owner is the kind of person you want to succeed. The lasagna and pasta dishes are some of the best in the city, and they often have new and inventive spins on old classics. Where there's fish on the menu, go for it. It's always fresh and well prepared. I haven't had a bad piece of fish there yet, and order a dozen times (at least. Try the whipped ricotta crostini, amazing... I will say I only gave a 4 for service, because they are still working out kinx with new waitstaff. However, if there is a problem they always drop everything to resolve it quickly. Small price to pay for a top notch neighborhood restaurant. One that's well worth the short trip from manhattan. p.s. they make a great margarita or negroni

Great addition to DUMBO. I could eat the string bean salad or fennel salad everyday and be happy. I've eaten dinner at AlMar 3 times and the food is delicious without being too heavy. The space is super cool without feeling overdone.
