“Alta Dazzles”
Reviewed October 25, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

For special occasions, I head to Alta...and have for the last few years. Best with a group (I'm dying to take advantage of there "whole menu" offer for under $500 for a gaggle of people) so everyone can try each delectable dish. Tapas are small and pricey, but worth it. The brussel sprouts changed my life the first time I visited and I order them every time. They never disappoint.

“Great Space, Lively Bar, Petite Portions For Sharing”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Alta serves a great white and red sangria at a lively bar; the main dining room is a larger, multi-level space with an upbeat energy on the louder side. The food is tapas style generally designed for sharing, but the portions are on the smaller side, so one needs to order at least two of most dishes to ensure everyone at a table of 5-6 receives a bite. All the dishes were delicious!

“Alta - a neighborhood favorite”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I love everything about this restaurant. The decor is lovely and the food, absolutely delicious. The Philadelphia Truffle Surprise is a must for your tapas selection, and if you like Sangria, you'll love Alta's (both red and white). It's the best I've had anywhere, including Spain.

“Nice place to get together with close friends”

The service was very good, the food was excellent but the portions were small, and the atmosphere was perfect to get together with close friends.
