We stopped in right at noon on a Monday without reservations , just hoping. We had choice of inside or the verandah. We chose the verandah, but both filled quickly. We shared a small gazpacho, which ended up being a bowl! I had the smoked turkey panini--- it was so fresh and wonderful combination of favors with arugula, cheese, tomato... More

We have had numerous meals here - quick dinner at the bar, long leisurely lunch for 12 on the veranda, intimate dinner for two inside and out. We have NEVER been disappointed. We have eaten here in all four seasons. Reservations are respected (and required), service is top notch, food is amazing and generous. The owner is always there -... More

We ate on the patio, which was lovely, but the bar as well as the inside room looked charming too. We were here for lunch, but look forward to a return trip for dinner. I had the gazpacho soup, which was unusual and wonderful, a chicken wrap with a huge salad side. My husband had the special omelet which was... More

Fun restaurant with very tasty and original food. We went on a very busy night and the service was perfectly fine. We even saw the owner helping out. The house salad was very good and the duck entree was spectacular! My wife had the cod and she enjoyed it. My daughter ordered a pasta that was not on the menu... More

Food, service, decor, and noise level were all wonderful. The trout and steak were delicious and portions were large. The salads are definitely sharable.

Tucked away in the down town section of Lenox is Alta. It is a nice hideaway with romantically dimmed lighting, dark wood trim and an extensive wine selection. The menu has all your favorites created to the unique tastes of this establishment. Whenever I have been there, it has been packed, with people over flowing onto the front porch veranda... More

Three of us ate at the bar so cannot review main restaurant menu. Overall service and food were quite good and prices reasonable. Two of us had a burger and one had a salad. I had my burger with cheese, back and caramelized onions which came with hand cut fries. Very good burger and fries, $14. Others enjoyed their burger... More

We made a reservation a good month before our visit on July 5, 2014 and we’re glad we did! The table on the porch was ideal; great service and delicious, well prepared food that was reasonably priced. Despite being very busy on a Saturday night we never felt rushed. We had a wonderful experience at Alta and we highly recommend.

We had dinner twice at Alta during our stay in Lenox. Both times our expectations were exceeded. A wide choice of (Italian) dishes and wines is available. The natural customer focused approach of the staff added to having a great dining experience. Better to book a table well in advance for this Lenox hot spot.
