“Crispy Brussel Sprouts”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

It's worth coming here for the crispy brussel sprouts alone! By far the best item on the menu. For special occasion dinners it's great to come with a group of friends and order 1 of every item on the menu. Very fun experience.

“What a find!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We recently went to the highly recommended Alta and were not disappointed! The food is just outstanding and the wine list as well and our server Jeremy was wonderful! Super helpful and very sweet! As was all the staff we encountered. Can't wait to go back!

“Pssstt. Don't tell anyone, but this is a real find.”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

This place is a real pleasure. You can sit back and graze through a wonderful tapas menu. The staff are helpful and patient, there's no big rush to finish. For 2 people, it takes at least 2 visits to properly sample the menu - but who's complaining?

“Definitely worth trying”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

We will add our voice to the number of TAs that enjoyed Alta.
It was recommended to us by several people and it didn’t disappoint.
And yes, we too loved the crispy brussel sprouts that I ordinarily wouldn’t dream of ordering and certainly not eating. But they were yum.
All the food was tasty. Some of the serves were a little small.
We were on the top floor (poor waitress), away from the vibe around the bar downstairs, but everywhere we looked there were people and noise.
There are a lot of these tapas/small plate restaurants.
This one is worth trying.
