Great food

Great small restaurant. Excellent food and service. Catered to my food sensitivities. The owner even gave us the names of the places he buys his gluten free bread. Nice xtra touch. We will be back.

Working in the area I always pick up a lunch from alta. The portions and price can't be beat. I love the wraps with a side of fries, a brilliant mix of sweet potatoes and regular spuds.

We are NYC foodies and this place was terrific! AMAZING wines too! Service was terrific and the French owner, quite young I might add, came to each table and briefly introduced himself. I loved that.

We picked this from the Tripadvisor reports and found it to be all that it was cracked up to be. Small, private feeling with very attentive wait staff and sommelier. We sampled various wines, had a bottle of Rioja along with a delicious dinner. Pricey but we knew that going in and were not disappointed.

On a recent dark and rainy evening Alta beckoned to the lonely traveler finding themselves in the heart of Lenox - no other businesses appeared to be open! The environment was warm and cozy, the staff incredibly attentive and nice, the food was sort of bland - though presented in lovely fashion and in decent portion sizes. The prices were... More

The other night, my wife and I enjoyed yet another dinner at Alta. We live a couple of miles away and are lucky to have a LOT of terrific restaurants close by. Alta is one of our favorites. Friendly and professional staff, excellent food (special requests cheerfully accommodated), casual atmosphere, great vibe. Nice mix of locals and tourists. Alta, always even... More

I have gone back to Alta each time i go to Lenox. The ambience is warm and inviting (although the tables are a bit close). The food is AMAZING with a great wine selection. Food is fresh, creative, generous portions. You won't be disappointed at Alta.

I was in town for work and had the good fortune of getting to Alta for a late dinner and a couple of drinks. I could not have been greeted more warmly on a cold night nor could I have had better food or service. I sat at the bar and enjoyed one of the best cocktails of my life,... More

We tried to book a table for 4 on a Friday for Saturday dinner. Lesson learned, make a reservation. We stopped in for a Saturday lunch instead, not really knowing what to look forward to and we were glad we did. The menu had something for everyone and the food really exceeded expectation. I had something as simple as a... More

After an extremely disappointing Valentine's Day dinner at the Prime Italian Steakhouse, we came to Alta's with high expectations after reading the TripAdvisor reviews. And they were surpassed. :) We went at 5:30 and it was pretty empty. The place is really pretty and has a wonderful ambience. It also has great sound-proofing and you can carry on a conversation...
