The lunch menu items are uniformly excellent. The service is gracious, and the owner almost always comes out to greet us during the meal. The sandwiches come with great fries, so get your hike in before you go!

My boyfriend took me there for my birthday. Neither one of us had been there before but read really good reviews and I now know why. We had reservations and were offered any unoccupied table to sit at. We were told of the specials by our waiter, David. He knew all the specials and answered questions about other dishes on... More

My friends selected this location and I admit I was a bit skeptical at first - seemed like a "meat" kind of place which was not my thing. I found, however, there were sufficient options that were not meat based, and that the establishment was very willing to make menu changes to meet individual needs - including those of the... More

N42°21.439' W73°16.977' What do you do when you work as a French chef in U.S. restaurants to prepare fine French food and meet your wife? You start your own restaurant where Americans can enjoy their well-known dishes prepared with the knowledge of the French kitchen. Aurelien Telle told us that his menu is aimed at the American dining habit and... More

Exceptional service, very knowledgable about the menu, able to zero in on your taste preferences. The soup du jour was a vegetable bisque with a dollop of herbed whipped butter. Very rich and very good. We shared a Ruben that was very lean with goat cheese. We also shared a chicken and vegetable stew with a hint of red wine.... More

This restaurant has a good vibe. We enjoy sitting at the Bar and ordering from that menu, especially in the wintertime. The outdoor dining is fun in summer, of course. The owner is very attentive to the customers and genuinely seems to want everyone to enjoy their Alta experience.

My Husband and I took a day trip to the Berkshires. After checking out the choices for lunch on Tripadvisor, we decided on Alta. I'm glad we did! We got there a little before Noon and were one of the first people to arrive, but it filled up quickly. We had a drink at the bar and then sat down... More

This is a third visit back to Alta's. We would never come to the Berkshires without a dinner here. The food is divine. Well prepared and the service is great. All 3 times the owner has stopped at our table to check on us and our meal.
