Love this place!

This is one of my favorite spots in the city. It just ends up being the perfect spot for a family dinner or date night or big birthday party. The drinks are fantastic and the food is always spot on.

We were a family of four who arrived just as the restaurant was opening at 5:30 on a snowy Saturday night. We were dressed more like skiers than the nicer attire so perhaps we were viewed as inexperienced diners. This placed was recommended by one of my wife's patients who is very in tune with what we like. For this... More

This place is apparently a restaurant- turn up for our reservation and have to wait 30 min before a table is free only to be seating in a crowded corner with people standing all around the table and the only reassurance from our waiter 'Joe'- it's a busy restaurant, you will get used to it. The wait staff and manager... More

Went to Alta for the first time Saturday Jan 24, 2015 for a friend's 30th birthday. It is suggested that you order three plates per person which I would say is about accurate. Three plates left me satiated but not overly stuffed. My wife and I ordered six items, spaghetti squash, gnocchi, brussel sprouts, beef sliders, pulled pork empanadas and... More

As a New Yorker, I check out new places to eat almost daily and never repeat. Why would you repeat when you have so many choices... Alta's I have been to more times that I can count. The ambiance is perfect with a traditional theme and the food is to die for amazing. Each time I have dined there, the... More

Alta. “Fantastic Find!” OK. So even though this place only accepts AMEX or cash, it won’t deter me from giving it 5 stars. We stumbled upon this gem which is nestled in a residential part of the Village. One can definitely miss it if not looking down every stairwell. The bar is in the front of this rustic establishment, with... More

I knew my brother wanted to undertake a foodie adventure while we were in NYC so I looked up tapas places and this was by far the most appealing. Tucked away (we walked by it 3 times) on west 10th street, Alta was everything I have ever dreamed of. As the dining room didn't open until 6, we sat at... More

We visited NYC in June 2014 and were told about Alta. What a cool restaurant. Great atmosphere. Very romantic setting although there were four of us. The Sangrias were probably the best I've ever had and the food was fantastic. Scallops were pricey (thinking $17 for two) but incredible, brussell sprouts great. It's been six months since I was there,... More

Seven of us were out to dinner at Alta on 10th Street in the Village, one of the group had been there many times and just raved about it, especially the Crispy Brussels Sprouts and this place did not disappoint! I lost count of how many dishes of the Crispy Brussels Sprouts were on our table! I remember having Fried... More
