quaint and excellent

We chose this restaurant as a meeting spot to visit with friends over lunch. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the soups and lunch entrees. The setting was perfect for a visit and the staff could not have been more accommodating. Wish we lived closer to go more often.

Food is delicious here. The swordfish was wonderful as was the tenderloin. The server and manager were very attentive, to the point of bringing club soda for a stained shirt. I can see why this restaurant is rated number 1 in Lenox.

Stopped here while in town. So glad we did. The food and service were exceptional. My tablemate had salmon with farro and vegetables. Cooked to perfection. I had the duck breast, mashed potatoes, green beans and cauliflower. The sauce was excellent and duck, again done perfectly. My table mate had the wine flight which he enjoyed. I had the wine...

When a place is good and inviting and the people are always a pleasure to be with than you return again and again. That's Alta. The food choices are limited but excellent. The amount of food can overwhelm you but they happily box up the leftovers for you. The wine list is accessible and enjoyable and wine recommendations come with... More

The menu changed last night and I was a bit worried about "first night" issues but the food was well prepared, well seasoned and the meal was nicely paced - responsive but not rushed. The host was accommodating and friendly. The wine list is nice. Prices were fair for the quality and the area. The restaurant was full and we... More

Alta is my favorite restaurant to go to when I am in Lenox. This weekend, the food was a delicious adventure. For lunch I had a vegetable panini that came out looking like a layered work of art and was delightfully crunchy when I bit into it! Every strata of this dish had its own complementary flavor and texture so... More

Lovely setting, good and attentive service, great food. This is our second time here and will certainly not be our last; both have been very positive dining experiences. We live in Stockbridge, just down the road. A friend was at Kripalu and we wanted her to see a great side of dining in the Berkshires...and we were not disappointed. Neither... More

My most recent visit to Alta was an improvement over previous trips, but even so Alta is still not the best restaurant in Lenox. The level of service was the biggest improvement. We were welcomed by the owner, who is an extraordinarily friendly and helpful host. The staff was friendly and efficient. My client had the daily omelette special which... More
