This place is truly wonderful. Very intimate and the decor is just right; not too casual yet not too formal. We ordered a dish from each course and found a subtle, perfect blending of flavors in every dish. My gentleman friend who is well traveled and a bit of a 'foodie', immediately declared the Lemon Orzo Pasta to be in the top five dishes he's ever had. That's amazing for him. We were there on a rainy Wednesday evening and it was busy. I would strongly recommend reservations. We will be returning many times.

Enjoyed three course tasting menu with wines very much. Only critic was that wine would be more interesting if poured from the bottle at the table rather than at the bar. Waitress did show us the bottles when requested.

This place is made up to be great food eatery and a great place to eat. What a let down, the food was nothing with very very small portions and the prices were excessively high. It could best be described as the children fairytale, “The Kings New Cloths”, meaning the hype is way over the top and this place is a fake. This review is based on my own experience.

Fresh ingredients, wonderful service-menu changes depending on what is in season.

We enjoyed dinner at Restaurant Alma and were particularly delighted to find they had a separate vegetarian menu! Everything we had was tasty with an interesting and delicious flavor fusion.

Our only feedback would be not to expect big portions (or you will be disappointed). I was fine with the portion size, but someone with a big appetite probably wouldn't be.
