While in the area for a wedding, this restaurant was suggested to us by the groom! We found it to be cozy and warm, with very good food! We enjoyed the atmosphere and our dinner choices and would recommend Alta if you are in the area! It's not far (about 10-15 minutes from) the famous Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge.

We would definitely come back to Alta - it is a well-fun restaurant! When I told them I was gluten-free, they brought out delicious warm GF focaccia bread. The olive oil on our table was awesome - great fruity flavors. We started with the quinoa salad (delicious) and the Mediterranean salad (also really good). For dinner we had the Lamb... More

This is the top restaurant in Lenox? How is that possible? So the ambiance was great and the space was just very nice. But for a wine bar the wine selection both by the glass and by the bottle was beyond mediocre. And our dinner was about as average as you can get. My pasta dish with salmon so average... More

It's puzzling that this restaurant gets such high ratings. Because a local favorite, Nudel, was closed, we crossed the street and got a table at Alta. Two of us split a salad - the best of our choices, for freshness and quality. The fois gras terrine, however, was less interesting than the toasted brioche served alongside. Two of our party... More

The Alta was recommended by a Townie. The ambience was friendly and the food was good. I ate at the bar and the bartender was very attentive and helpful. I tried the Tofu / Ratatouille / Spinach dish. It bordered on very good, I felt it could be a little more lively with some spice. My dessert of Caramel Apple... More

From what we heard, this was a restaurant not to be missed. Unfortunately, we should have missed it. One of the appetizers, lamb meatballs, was bland and tasteless. Our main courses were OK -- but OK doesn't cut it for the raves we heard. But the finishing touch was the "home-made" cookie for dessert. It was cloyingly sweet and without... More

We ha dinner on a Wednesday. The restaurant was busy. We did find the servers very attentive and helpful. The food was well prepared and very fresh. We had the duck breast and the alta salad, both were excellent. This is our first but will definitely come back.

Had lunch here yesterday and sat inside away from any car exhaust. The restaurant is quite attractive with pleasant ambience. Service was prompt and pleasant but not rushing us to order. I ordered the turkey burger but got talking with my friend so completely that I'm not sure I really got a turkey burger rather than a beef burger. It... More

We went here 2 nights in a row as the food was so delicious and the service attentive. The quinoa salad and lamb meatballs were amazing. I had lamb tagine one night, which I had before, and it was overcooked this time....thus my 4* rating. I know I should have said something but the staff is so nice that I... More
