Where is it? Is it open? These are the common questions about Altaeats... no sign, no address, blacked out windows, and yet the joint is doing very well. No corkage, no booze. Liquor store, next door. Makes dining a bit cheaper so you can spend more on the food dishes. Fairly priced and an ever changing menu from our NYC... More

This is a secret neighborhood restaurant that creates a lovely ambiance and delicious food. It is a bit noisy which is my only complaint, can be hard to talk.

This won't be too helpful as I am writing it months after the fact, but this place is great to have in our neighborhood. Innovative, well/prepared food, friendly service. Sometimes room is hot or noisy.

While visits in Altadena our grandsons requested dinner at Altaeats. There is no sign out front but they were able to direct us. On street parking, which can be tricky. Our 5:30 reservation put us in as the restaurant opened. It is small but clean and bright inside. Noise was not a problem at first, but by 6:30 as we... More

We had a hard time finding ALTAeats, as there was no sign or street number. We should have taken that as an omen. This is a restaurant that tries, but fails miserably. Our primary problem was the noise level. It was so loud that none of our party of four could hear. We laughed that we needed to text each... More

I had the opportunity to be at this restaurant and I am very impressed by the costumer service, food, prices and quality. I recommend the pork belly and paella. Bring your bottle of wine! I will be back! MD

A truly great restaurant, right here in Altadena. We started with the duck hash - outstanding. Next, the mushroom, gruyere appetizer - outstanding. Rack of lamb - ridiculous!!!!! Brussels sprouts and au gratin potatoes - even more ridiculous. Finished with the apple tart, which was unbelievable, and I don't even like apple tarts. Just an incredible restaurant, and service to... More

We were a little early for our reservation, seated immediately. Food was very good (brick chicken and fish of the day) and servers were very nice. Unfortunately the kitchen was not on their game. There was a long wait between apps and dinner. Then our potatoes side showed up, about 5 minutes after that the fish main course arrived and... More
