“..had not been for awhile.. will go again... soon!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

It's highly rated for a reason... food is well above average, prices are appropriate, and service is professional. Should it be on the menu, try the lamb-burger.. with a full bodied red (couple dozen wines by-the-glass).. exceptional. There's lots that's worthwhile... lunch is popular, go a little later, and it's lunch-dinner. Reservations for five or more.

“Superior dining in the Berkshires”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We've eaten here several times but this time was the best. Superb service, excellent food, fresh local produce, one of the best meals we've had in the Berkshires!

“Good european standard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

If you are looking for an american restaurant and you have not eaten in Europe yet, forget all those ones wich propose french or italian cuisine and try Alta.
The standard and tastes are the same you should appreciate in northern Italy or French.
Good presentation of the dishes, selection of wines all served to glass (I've found year for the first time a good wine of my italian region, the Sangiovese, same grape of most known Brunello di Montalcino, but less expensive and often better).
Very busy restaurant, prompt service at the table, minimal interior characterize the restaurant.
Middle prices, you should have to compute 45-50 USD for a starter, main course and wine.

“Solid Dinig Experience.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Nice spot in Lenox for dinner. Small comfortable dining area. Good service and very good well thought out menu. Nice wine list with recommendations for parings on the menu. Would definitely go back. Only downside was Ceaear salad was served on a warm plate. Other than that everything was great.
