Had a very enjoyable visit to Alto recently.
As you will probably know there are only 2 choices - you have either rib eye steak or whole lobster. Both served with a green salad and fries.
There were 3 in my group and we all chose lobster. You could have it steamed or grilled. The presentation is lovely, really gorgeous plates. The lobster was very well cooked and tasted fantastic. Surprisingly, the green salad was absolutely delicious!! Both the fries and salads were replenished at no extra charge which was a lovely surprise.
Of course, lobster, even a whole one, is never going to be the most filling meal. But its absolutely delicious and worth ordering here as you won't find it at this price anywhere else! Besides, with 2 rounds of fries you won't exactly go hungry! Just don't have unrealistic expectations about how much flesh can actually be in a lobster shell.
There were 3 desserts on offer all for a very very reasonable price. The knickerbocker glory was amazing! So tasty, especially the raspberry cream element.
When I called up to reserve the table I was asked if we were celebrating a special occasion. It was in fact one of our birthdays. It was a lovely surprise for him to be served a complementary chocolate brownie complete with candle!
The service was great all night in fact. Really attentive and incredibly friendly. When we asked to move tables (simply because we changed our mind) our waitress was very obliging and made us feel like it was no trouble. She was actually funny and cracked a few jokes which was fantastic and matched our humour! English clearly wasn't even her first language!
We visited on a saturday night and the place was busy enough to create a bit of atmosphere. I read a review where the author complained about the height of the chairs compared with the booth seating at the opposite side of the table. I can honestly say we didn't notice at all.
All in all I have no complaints at all about Steak and Lobster at Alto. We had a great night.
