My husband and I visited for lunch although we have had dinner before. Place was very busy and I know why the food, service and wine...all above expectations.

We had a real treat on our recent visit to New England. We discovered this buzzing restaurant in the centre of Lenox, and we put very unfair conditions on the owner of the restaurant as we walked in. We needed to be out within half an hour as we had a concert to go to, and we had very tricky... More

We enjoyed a wonderful derelict dinner here. The place gets very busy, so we could only be accommodated at the bar. Often this puts me off, but here it was different. The bar man is outstanding: you don't feel like you're eating dinner at the bar. Service apart, the food and menu were excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Where else in the USA can you get a bottle of Gary Farrell Chardonnay from California for just over $40 in a fine dining establishment - Amazing value. We loved this place and given how full it was,so do many other people. We arrived in town, went to make a booking and couldn't get in until 8.15pm -no problem we... More

I was very disappointed with my Mediterranean salad. Before I went, I checked the online menu which listed it as $11. When we got the bill it was $16. A small salad, too light on the dressing and no where near enough toppings to justify an $11 salad, much less $16. A real disappointment.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry the salad was disappointing, I wish you would have shared that with us, as we would have gladly brought you more toppings/dressing or of course remade it for you, which we are very happy to do as we truly care about our customers. As for the price, the salad is $11 which... More

Warm and cozy atmosphere, surprisingly busy for a Monday evening. We didn't make a reservation so sat at the bar for dinner and were warmly received by Fin, the barman. This is exactly the kind of place where you'll get the same kind of expert service and attention while eating at the bar as you would at at table. Perfectly... More

Very small and intimate, be sure to make reservations. Interesting artwork, cozy, friendly owner and staff. Of course the highlight was the food. We had been told about the exceptional duck breast in salty caramel sauce and it was unusual and delicious. Great wines, too.

Lenox standby, but ok, and mediocre. Service friendly. Wine list good. But cappuccino awful; Joannie's cookie not even cooked properly. Standard, middle of the road, ok, and food won't kill you. But standards have slipped in recent years. Needs work, but you could do worse!

We walk around town & saw Alta Restaurant filled with diners. And we were surprised from food to services. Food were great & a lot of wine to choose. Even the owner came by & asked how was everything. Highly recommended

We had the scallops and the duck. Both were cooked perfectly on a busy night where we were squeezed in because a res did not show. This place has their act together and they fire on all cylinders! Everyone around us loved their food also. Great food, great wine, great vibe. Go there!
