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

Food was amazing but it was very expensive. A sangria was $13. It was the closest I've had to an authentic Spanish sangria in the U.S. The tapas style servings were very small but delicious. We had paella, pulled pork empanadas, brussel sprouts, bacon wrapped dates and beef sliders. Everything was more delicious than the previous. Four of us went... More

Alta has an excellent atmosphere, you could think you are in a chateau in Tuscany. Definitely worth trying with friends or for a romantic dinner. The menu is very interesting, ideas are great, like "seafood tagine", although I think the result could be improved. Service was also very good and the wine selection very very good.

At its best, food is a communal experience. This can be experienced with everybody eating the same thing at the same time from a tasting menu (which is the culinary equivalent of synchronized swimming), or even better, when plates are thrust upon the table and passed around. Alta is the perfect destination for the latter, in an otherwise nondescript location... More
