We have a great night in this place. The food was absolutely great and delicious. The service was great also.


I went to this place for my dad's birthday hoping for great food and a great time. We had reservations and it took them ten minutes to seat us. Our table was really crammed. It st...

Editorial review from GrubHub 7/3/2012

I've never ordered delivery from here, but I've eaten in the restaurant a few times. Totally worth going to the restaurant, it's quite a show! The food is only so-so, especially given the price, so I don't think I'd ever bother to order delivery from them since there are better, more affordable places to order from. If this review were based on the restaurant itself as opposed to the food I'd give them 4-5 stars given that it's such a cool experience to go there despite the food being underwhelming. more

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. more

Most amazing scenery 8/1/2011

Alhambra is a must do!!! 7/27/2011

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!!! more

The memorable food was delicious 7/26/2011

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. more

The staff was extremely friendly 7/25/2011

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!!! more

Best dancers in Chicago 7/21/2011

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. more

YUM! Best Moroccan food around! 6/29/2011

High-end and classy and classy people. Entertainment on the stage....a wonderful place to bring a date....delicious food, need I say more! more

One of my favorite places 6/24/2011

I love you, guys. This is one of my favorite places. Everytime somebody from abroad is visiting us (and not only), Alhambra Palace is on our """"to do"""" list. Thank you for the excellent service and atmosphere more

Thumbs up 6/22/2011

Many compliments 6/20/2011

Thank you for helping to plan a wonderful party and please let me pass on the many, many compliments for Alhambra that I overheard throughout the night. The room looked beautiful, the food was delicious and plentiful and the service was outstanding. You were a breeze to work with and Alhambra made a great choice with their newest manager. more

Everything was excellent 6/15/2011

Everything was excellent, I would have preferred being seated in the main room versus the other room and when we finished dinner being seated in the main room. I felt uncomfortable just ordering coffee and after dinner drink while watching the show taking up valuable real estate. I will recommend, it is one of the most beautiful restaurants in Chicago and the food was excellent. more

Highly recommended 6/13/2011

For my eighteenth birthday my rent's took me out to this beautiful restaurant called Alhambra Palace, located Downtown, Chicago. Highly recommended by me! I had a great first-time experience, excellent food, a chance to talk to some of the dancers. Very nice! more

One of the best dining experiences 6/8/2011

I booked a reservation there on Saturday for a friends birthday. It was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. Thx. Wondering about music the dancers danced to. Is there a specific CD or group that was playing? we really enjoyed the music and would like to find it. I am already planning my next trip back to chicago and you are on the list for sure. more

A good value 6/6/2011

Given a very good supper, a great 3 hour floor show, and an outstanding general manager who caters to guests, it is a good value. We'll be back. more

Great place 6/1/2011

Definitely great place for group and all night partying more
