I feel like I'm just piling on here - in a good way - because this restaurant is a treasure to its loyal following. It's difficult to point out a particular favorite dish, as chef Alex Roberts creates an ever-changing menu bringing to the table the very best of each season. This is part of the magic of Alma -...

I had wanted to get a dinner reservation at 112 Eatery but no such luck. So I was looking for a highly-rated restaurant. I had read about Restaurant Alma and decided to give it a try. What a great find! I loved everything about this place. This is a fine dining restaurant but it is the opposite of stuffy: welcoming,... More

The menu changes every month , if you go in July i highly recommend the shrimp , the red quail and the halibut . The cheese selection was wonderful and locally sourced. We... More

The 3 Course Pre Fix was wonderful. Each course had several options (including gluten free). Everyone at the table shared and I must say nothing was less than outstanding. The wine pairing was also very well suited to the food and the server asked all the right questions to make sure she recommended the wines we would enjoy. Casual, comfortable... More

Took my husband here for dinner as I'd been on another occasion. I raved about it in advance and was overall pretty disappointed with the experience. The menu does change monthly and the website always has the latest offerings. We were so excited for the courses for July! We had a few issues with our courses. Poached egg was too... More

This restaurant is honestly the best in Minneapolis when it comes to well-prepared food. The balance of flavors and quality of ingredients is so high, and it never disappoints. I'd recommend getting different things on the 3-course menu for yourself and whoever you go with so you can try a bite and trade! The bread is also great! I'd highly... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Restaurant Alma last weekend. From start to finish everything exceeded our expectations. My wife eats vegan, and they were able to put together a fantastic tasting menu that was very well executed. The service was also very good.

We wanted to celebrate our anniversary and moving into our new home in Minneapolis with good food and drink. There were 6 items on the vegetarian menu; so my wife and I could share 3 each from the outstanding 3 course meal. The food was excellent, the wine was good, and the cocktail was v well made. Service was courteous... More
