I've been to Alta over a dozen times, their service has declined significantly, from normal nyc-edgy to overt hostility - after dinner this past weekend I will never go back. We waited an hour for food to start arriving (we ordered the moment we sat down, b/c we were a large group and wanted to have the entire menu). Once... More

Make sure you know the exact address as it's easy to miss this restaurant. I knew the street but walked past the previous night and didn't spot it. Lots of choice of tapas type dishes but all with something extra. All the meal was first class and attractively presented. Lamb meatballs deserve a special mention. Plates were brought individually not... More

The entry can be difficult to locate; it is downstairs. What is initially a single level opens to two levels as you proceed past the bar and into the restaurant. The upper level is really a mezzanine, so the place has a spaciousness we had not expected. The tapas-style menu is extensive; we ordered 7 plates, including the paella (sufficient... More

Here is the list: calamari, tagin lamb, chocolate cake. May be goat cheese with honey, sliders. The rest is not my taste. Sangria is good! Served individually. We shared anyway and they were very nice to bring it in two glasses. Very loud, unfortunately. The second floor is more quiet, but only for small groups. Large groups can only be... More

It's really great place for a family party. the food is great, and you can share everything. Tapas at their best. The wine list is huge, but there are reasonably priced bottles to wash down the food.

This restaurant is in Greenwich Village and is within walking distance from Washington Square Park. My wife and I ate here in July of 2014 and loved it. There was an excellent selection to choose from and all of the Tapas we tried were fantastic. The lamb meatballs were especially good.

Alta Restaurant has quickly become a favorite of my family for special occasions. The selections -- all tapas (small plates) -- allow your entire table to sample a wide variety of superbly prepared foods, with unique combinations. Don't miss their VERY special sangria. You will NOT regret it! The service is also above reproach. Will go there again and again,... More

The feel of the restaurant transports you out of the city. Unfortunately, the food did not match the Spanish/ Mediterranean feel. All the dishes of paella, calimari, even foi gras were so transformed into some California healthy that they bared no resemblance to the traditional thing. The food wasn't bad, but it was too different from one's reference point. Paella... More

A super find. Very good food, served in a very warm and cozy environment. The tapas - we had golden beets, fried goat cheese, chorizo/shrimp skewer, and others - were very well prepared and served at just the right pace. Alta is, as others have noted, a bit difficult to find. There is no sign, so simply slow down and... More
