Dinner was excellent

Make dinner reservations because this place is always packed. The smell alone as you enter will entice you. My entire party liked their dishes and waiting staff was attentive.

They don't salt their food. No flavor. Pork cheeks - ok. Tomato pesto pasta - was pasta with marinara sauce essentially. Salad was best thing but was totally forgettable.

The owners of the B&B recommended Alta as the best restaurant in Lenox. On a Thursday night, we couldn't get in. On Friday we got a reservation for 530. So, make your plans ahead. We were greeted very cordially and the service throughout was excellent.For example, when I when I forgot to tell them I couldn't eat one of the... More

We went to dinner at Alta and it was fantastic . The weather was so nice that were able to sit on the covered porch. The food was very tasty and when it started to rain, they asked if we wanted to be moved inside. We weren't getting wet so we chose to sit and enjoy watching the rain drops.... More

Came here for lunch on a Monday afternoon around 12:00. We were seated right away and had waters and our drink order taken in just a few minutes. We ordered the mushroom bisque with truffle oil and it was sooooo good! The bread that came was also great. We had salads - a cobb salad and a ceasar with salmon... More

The place to dine on every Berkshire trip! Great menu and wine selection each season and year I visit. The food was properly prepared. The appetizers were amazing and the wine pairings were spot on. Make sure to have reservations as it does get busy. The seating at the bar is always fabulous ( love meeting new people ).

Dinner for two included foie gras and Alta salad for appetizers, and pork cheeks and shrimp linguine. All were excellent, especially the foie gras and the salad (Mixed Greens, Beets, Candied Pecan, Cranberries, Fried Herbed Goat Cheese). The recommended wine pairings were also very good. Finally service was simply excellent. Very thorough, but not intrusive.

On our trip to western Mass. this was by far the best restaurant we ate at. After eating here one nite we cancelled our reservations at another restaurant so we could eat here again. Every dish is great but can't miss dishes are the pork cheeks and the scallops. Excellent wine list and great bar too. The staff is very... More
