We had a wonderful meal on their covered porch after the theatre. We both had the trout with lemon and capers with spinach and steaming hot mashed potatoes. They all have a vety good srlection of wines. The owner was attentive and friendly- very welcoming. We eat here every time we are in the Berkshires.

Returned to Alta with high expectations after a 2 year hiatus. Sadly, it did not live up to our memories. Our waiter was very cordial, but very, very busy on a hectic Sat. nite. The food, which we remembered as exceptional, was just ok. The tuna appetizer was extraordinary, but my pasta was overcooked, dry and underseasoned, as was my... More

If you find yourself with a lunch break between visiting historical sites in the area (in our case, Ventfort and the Rockwell Museum), you should certainly consider lunch at Alta. Lots of people must have considered my advice before they actually got it as the place was packed on a weekday. It doesn’t help that it’s a warren of small... More

Nice restaurant in downtown Lenox. There was a mixup with the day of our reservation but they were able to do some rearranging and we were seated without much hassle. The wine was fine but we didn't go for the high end which could get pricy. I had the Striped Bass special but it was a bit overcooked and dry.... More

We had one evening with no performances at Tanglewood, and spent a relaxing day shopping and swimming. Without the pressure of a showtime, we were able to go for a later dinner that was outstanding.

Our annual trip to the Berkshires would not be complete without dinner at Alta. The food is always excellent, service outstanding and one better make reservations because it is a very popular destination.

Our new favorite restaurant in the Berkshires. From the salad to the desert everything was perfect. Service top notch. The food was exceptional. The trout was the best I've every had. Try this restaurant. You won't be sorry.

Had a romantic dinner for two there. The food is high end chef prepared meals. Considering the quality the pricing is actually pretty budget friendly too.

We made a dinner reservation here based on the reviews. We walked by earlier in the day, and my wife stopped in to request a specific table outside, a request that was honored. Our server, Jacquie, was efficient and personable. (Shortly after we began to eat our entrees, she asked whether everything had been prepared to our liking, which I... More
