I can't say I didn't eat well, I would lie. But sincerely the place is really easy and sportive and the plates are just eatable. Even if I went there three times I had to eat two times the same because it was the only thing they could prepare without garlic and onion (food that I can't eat). The most... More

We were 3 couples for dinner. We sat on the porch, which was very hot despite ceiling fans. Our trout entree was very good but certainly not outstanding. My husband found it bland. Our Idaho and sweet potatoe fries were cold. The pork cheek entree was delicious. Our waiter seemed irritable and impatient despite his efforts to be polite. It... More

Wow! When dining out, we don't like to be rushed. Trish couldn't have been better! The menu is creative, flavors balanced and ingredients so very fresh. Try the Alta Salad, Fois Gras Terrine, and the Duck. On the night we were there, the special was Veal with a Penne Pasta that was to die for! Good food, great service and... More

Alta is always rated very highly on tripadvisor. We had a decent meal there. The manager was very courteous and helpful. Service was very good. The restaurant is small so spaces are a bit tight. My major problem with the place was that the food was just average and a bit bland. No one in my party had a standout... More

Even amongst the the great restaurant options in the Lenox area, Alta stands out for its culinary creativity and wine parings. The owner/manager checks with each table to ensure everything is satisfactory. Looking forward to our next trip to the Berkshires and a return to Alta.

Excellent food but somewhat pricey. Breakfast is superb, whereas dinner is less unique. Still a very good place to stop, but doesn't satisfy me as much as Gateways Inn or Church Street Cafe, which are a short walk away.

This past week was the first time in a long time that we were in the Berkshires during the summer months. Alta has been our go to favorite restaurant in the fall and winter but this past week we were in Lenox. After attending a beautiful rehearsal at Tanglewood, we drove into town for lunch. We had a fairly short... More
