We were starving when we arrived at the hotel, and fortunately they served lunch until 3. I had a hamburger and spouse had the fish tacos. Both were very nicely done and presented.

I stay at the Alta often, so I have had the opportunity to taste breakfast and dinner. Both are excellent. The dinner menu is creative and beautifully presented. The staff is attentive and the atmosphere is magical. I highly recommend.

The staff are professional and kind, the view is incredibly breathtaking and the food is amazing. I love the old "Royal Hollywood" feeling as I descend the steps in the Alta Hotel to the restaurant, La Luz. I can't wait to go back.

This restaurant has had many ups and downs, but it currently in an up! The menu is a bit limited, but the dishes are unique, well-served and tasty. The service is good, and the atmosphere very good when you want to have a conversation. Setting is beautiful.
