My last meal will be at Alma

I had been to Alma a few years ago and was delighted to see that they are better than ever! I took my wife here for her birthday and we both agreed that it was among the best meals we have ever had...and we eat a lot of great meals.

Took my husband here for his birthday. I had heard it was great and really wanted to love it. But it was just ok. Our waitress wasn't too attentive or friendly. Bread was so so. Food was ok but It was forgettable. It was a pretty pricey meal (and I don't mind spending a lot on food), but probably not... More

This was our last meal in the USA and it didn't disappoint! We walked over from downtown, via the Stone Arch Bridge which gave us a good appetite, ready for the three courses! The menu looked great with lots of interesting choices. The pork belly for the 1st course was delicious, then I had the gnocchi which was light and... More

I had an amazing crepe here with a wonderful raw salmon appetizer. My daughter had the same app, and "gently cooked" chicken (gee, I'm sure the chicken appreciated their sensitivity.) Anyway, the food was outstanding -- flavorful, beautiful, very well done. I will go back for the food. What I will need to do first, though, is arm myself with... More

My husband and I go to Alma when we want to have a nice, romantic and relaxed evening out. It's a bit pricier than our normal dinner outings, but it is worth it for a special occasion. The food is so fresh and creative. locally sourced, and varies each time you are there. The atmosphere is clean and bright. People... More

I've been going to Alma for more than 10 years now - it's still one of the Top Five restaurants in town, and that's with a lot of new competition. The food and the staff are great, with a constantly changing menu and wine selection.

Made the reservations based on some internet reviews. When I arrived I thought I had made a mistake. Quite to the contrary, it was a great experience. The room was very comfortable and nice and casual but had a nice sense of elegance. The menu suggests a three course prix fix. I recommend it. Great choices almost need three nights... More

My son and his girlfriend took my husband and myself there for Mother's Day. We had the three course tasting course which was just over $50 and paired it with the wine which I forgot how much that was. Needless to say, it is expensive, but the wait staff was very knowledgable about the wines, and the food he was... More

Great service, nice atmosphere (though not fab). Menu is a little on the bewildering side: some combinations sound weird and unappealing. Luckily our server was able to describe every dish of interest in great detail and we enjoyed our food a lot. Cheese course was very disappointing: tiny portion and boring cheese. Wine pairing was nicely done.
