Great Lunch if you can't get in for dinner

We tried to book a table for 4 on a Friday for Saturday dinner. Lesson learned, make a reservation. We stopped in for a Saturday lunch instead, not really knowing what to look forward to and we were glad we did. The menu had something for everyone and the food really exceeded expectation. I had... read more

After an extremely disappointing Valentine's Day dinner at the Prime Italian Steakhouse, we came to Alta's with high expectations after reading the TripAdvisor reviews. And they were surpassed. :) We went at 5:30 and it was pretty empty. The place is really pretty and has a wonderful ambience. It also has great sound-proofing and you can carry on a conversation...

My wife and I ate here during Valentine's Day weekend. We thought when we heard "wine bar" that this would be a quiet, adult place. When we were seated, there was a screaming 2 year old and a large table with children at it as well. We love kids and all, but expected a much different experience. The service was... More

Excellent food and service, a bit pricey, but pretty much on a par with the Lenox restaurants. Very nice. Worth it.

This was our second visit to this lovely restaurant. We always think of Lenox as being a spring/summer destination but this restaurant proved us wrong. The end of October and the restaurant was packed. I was do happy I had made reservations a few weeks in advance. As always, the service was spot on. Our server was pleasant, very knowledgeable...

I went t Alta Valentine's weekend with my husband while we were spending one quiet evening alone, without our children! The restaurant was full, so I assumed we would probably be waiting a while for our 7:00 PM reservation. To my surprise, our table was ready before we were able to order drinks at the beautiful wine bar. We shared... More

I went to dinner at Alta on Valentine's day while on an overnight in the Berkshire's. It was snowing and the roads were covered in snow from the past few storms. I dropped my girlfriend off at the restaurant and went to find a spot. I found one just near by on the street, but found out after that the... More

Went to an early dinner at Alta Valentines weekend. They only had a 5:30 reservation open so we took it. They seated us in the 'back room'. When we got there, there was a party of 8 with 4 very young loud children screeching and having a grand ol time but completely distracting and at times so suddenly loud, we... More

I have eaten here three times. The first two were great, so I hope this was a one off. But nothing was right with the food. Apps were an Alta salad ( beets, goat cheese, mesclun, cranberries, pecans) and oysters. The salad dressing was flavorless. The cocktail sauce was mostly ketchup. The oysters themselves were good and fresh. Mains were... More

The food was wonderful, as was the service. We enjoyed all of our four meals. We had read rave reviews and were eagerly anticipating the experience and we were not disappointed. It was a charming place with friendly servers and owner. We would highly recommend it.
