A delightful cafe...delicious food.

We sat in the covered portico for lunch. The food and the service were excellent. It was busy, but we were not rushed. Everything was fresh and delicious and the presentation was beautiful. A lovely respite for a busy day or to meet friends.

This is our favorite restaurant in the Berkshires!!! My husband and I agree that Aurelien is by far the most amazing owner of any restaurant we have ever been to. And we are huge foodies and restaurant goers!!! Can't wait to go back. Any negative comments about this restaurant are just flukes. And everyone knows that there's no such thing... More

This is a wonderful spot for dinner in Lenox. A french flair in wine, food and atmosphere. Reservation highly recommended. Dinner was excellent along with the service.

Alta has a reputation as a great place and it met expectations. The food was excellent and very interesting. My blue cheese samosa appetizer was particularly good. The service was very good, including the owner coming by a couple of times.

There is a good reason that reservations are tough to get here. The cuisine and service are beyond outstanding. We made a reservation a week in advance and only a 9:00 PM table was available for our pay of 4. We reluctantly acquiesced to an 8:00 table on the porch, because we were concerned it might be chilly. On the... More

The food is excellent and an interesting menu. I had a delicious Moroccan lamb dish. Very nice to sit on the porch on a summer night. Very popular and hard to get reservations, so book early.

On this site, Alta is the #1 rated restaurant in the Lenox area. After eating there, I'd have to agree. We were 6 SU alums celebrating 30 years of wedded bliss, when we dined at Alta at the end of July. Everything was great. For dinner, I had the seared duck breast and the sauce was so, so good. Went... More

Recommended by a friend who knew locals and asked them where they think is best -- it was awesome. Salad, wrap and dessert were all excellent. Waitress was very nice and inside atmosphere was cute. Very busy though. Onn a Thrusday there was a waiting line by 12:30pm. Parking was a challenge, but that sums it up for the entire... More
