Good food, warm and friendly decor, with an excellent selection of wine and local beer at reasonable prices, American cooking with a twist. The restaurant offers a regular menu and a bar menu providing options for either a light meal or heartier fare. The service was excellent and we can see why people go back there regularly.

Just had a fantastic experience at Alta. Chose it based on its superb ratings here; now see why. The slightly chopped-up layout makes for two intimate rooms - thoughtfully inlaid with sound-absorbent panels on ceiling that keeps the rooms abuzz but conversation-friendly. Creatively invented fare offers diverse new insights without launching off into weirdness. My Berkshire Blue Cheese Samosa appetizer,... More

Alta was an excellent choice for a meal and top notch service. The owner watched over every detail without being too much. Every staff member seemed to care about your dining experience. We had a lovely time.

Whilst strolling the gorgeous Lenox, we stumbled upon a place to eat and drink. Menu is executed in a concise way. Precision in regards to both quality of product and presentation are demonstrated. Fabulous Mediterranean salad with creamy Champagne dressing, salmon bagel plate, and chocolate lava cake with hazelnut gelato were the stars of our afternoon. Oh, and the pear... More

It was a little noisy as we sat our group by the window up front on the bar side of the restaurant. As we got settled our waitress made her way over and began to take care of us. To say she was accommodating would be a huge understatement. She went above and beyond. I was very happy as was... More

They have a "stew of the day" and salmon quesadillas. The menu had quite a few unique entrees and we were there for lunch.
