Had dinner with friends before a show at the Comedy Cellar. We where running late and explained our time constraints to the waiter. He said he would pace everything to get us on our way. He did just that, and it was all excellent. Nothing was left behind. We just wish there was more time. The next visit will last... More

My husband and I were going to a jazz show at Club Mezzrow and learned that Alta was nearby. It was a little hard to find even when we were right nearby, but you must persist because the food and atmosphere are divine. We tried 3 dishes each and like every single one. I especially loved the lamb meatballs and... More

It had been several years since my last visit, but boy was I missing out. The setting is cozy and romantic, so it's good for a first date / nice night out with a significant other. The menu is tapas, so it's a nice way to taste several different dishes. They suggest 2-3 dishes per person, depending on their size.... More

Using my Trip Advisor app (off the beaten track section) we discovered that Alta was on the same street as Small's Jazz Club where we had just enjoyed the Wednesday evening jazz tap jam. So we found it easily. It was about 9:30pm and the place was packed but we were taken to a small upstairs area where it was... More

This lovely restaurant has no sign outside, so look carefully. The bar is the first thing you see and it is very stylish. The rooms are a bit of this and that. Downstairs by the fire can get quite noisy; the second floor has mostly two tops and you get the added benefit of looking down on a busy dining... More

This is a converted brownstone and thus had a variety of seating options. Our party of four was ushered to an intimate table, away from the noise of larger rooms. But to get there, we literally had to walk THROUGH the kitchen. And it was a small kitchen! But once seated, we were sublime. The tapas were small plates of... More

We were a large group of six, which allowed us to sample a wide range of the tapas. A savvy waitperson is a necessity as there is an abundance of choices. Frankly, some of the choices were more appetizing than others but it is an exciting and dynamic restaurant. The restaurant is attractive and as has been noted by other... More

We met up with friends at Alta for an evening of catching up. While I loved the atmosphere downstairs, I found it easier to hear in the room all the way at the top of the stairs. Also had our own bathroom up there! We had no issues with the service, on the contrary, our server was attentive and polite.... More

We had such high hopes for this restaurant. It is well rated on Trip Advisor and Google and the space was lovely...cozy bar and nicely laid out restaurant with two floors. We were looking for a light meal on our last night in NYC as it was late (10:45 upon arrival). We saw as we entered they closed at 11:00... More

My husband and I were in NYC for a week and decided this was the best dinner of our trip-even better than our meal at Jean Georges! There is no sign that we could find but luckily, we were guided by our local friends. You walk down a couple steps and into this beautiful almost wine cellar like atmosphere with... More
