Great food and wonderful neighborhood atmosphere - Disappointed we weren't able to eat on the rooftop but still had a great view of Manhatten from the second floor. Food was very authentic with generouse portions.

Alma serves great authentic Mexican food at reasonable prices; best of all is the view of Manhattan from the rooftop terrace. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a memorable dinner on a warm summer's evening watching the sunset over NYC.

We visited the restaurant for dinner following a recommendation from a friend of us. The visit was very average to be honest, food wasn’t great and the place is quite loud and very small.

I went here for Sunday brunch. I didn't have to wait for a table. The view was spectacular from the roof top! And the food was amazing, worth every penny! I will certainly go back here again.
