“Tasting Menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We had a great experience at Alma. The service was great, and the food was outstanding. Great flavors, and well thought out dishes. Everything went so well together, and we loved what we ordered. Perfectly cooked fish, great sauces (and not overwhelming), and fresh seasonal ingredients. We also went right after our wedding and they played the song my wife walked down to isle to. Cool spot, great food.

“Wonderful anniversary dinner.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We visited Restaurant Alma for our anniversary. We decided on the tasting menu with the wine pairing. Every bite was perfect. It is not an inexpensive meal, but very worth the splurge for a special occasion. We have wanted to go back and just order an entree of the menu. Which is a more inexpensive option. The service was outstanding.

“great date night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Restaurant Alma has a wonderful, interesting menu. Excellent food with a good variety, great service, good atmosphere. The food is good for those who want to try something new, but still has something to offer for those who are less adventurous. Loved it!

“Worth visiting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Food here is exquisite, just what you'd expect from one of the most acclaimed places in the Twin Cities. Pick one from Column A (starter), one from Column B (middle), and one from Column C (entree) - there are sufficient options in each that you just can't go wrong. But my favorite was actually from the implied "Column D" (dessert), a sticky toffee tart with chocolate espresso sauce and coconut sorbet - wow. Four-and-a-half stars: slightly slow (only slightly) and slightly less (only slightly) attentive service was the only downside to giving this 5 stars. But it's clear why this is one of the top 5 restaurants in the Cities.
