There is a reason this place is #1 for restaurants on Trip Advisor. We went in with high expectations about the food and service and they were met and then some. From the moment you walk in and are seated, the staff is attentive and accommodating. They know the perfect cadence for a relaxed dinner... not too long to take... More

This restaurant is terrific for lunch or dinner, although dinner can be difficult to get reservations. If you know you are going to want to go there for dinner, try to reserve as far in advance as possible.

We just went here for a small family birthday celebration. Three of the four of us are gluten free, so it was quite a delight that most of the menu could be prepared GF -- and they even brought us a GF bread basket! Rachel, our server, was the consummate professional. She made excellent suggestions, including wine, and was never... More

Dined with my business partner and enjoyed a casual, good dinner. Excellent salads, great cheese plate and very good seafood. Scallops were cooked to perfection as was the chicken, which was tender and accompanied with tasty vegetables. Wine selection is quite good. Plenty of desserts to chose from. Pricey but worth it.

It is a very good restaurant. It is not cheap, but still worth the price. They have great fish options, creative dishes, and good service.

Food was excellent, especially the Caeser salad and the roasted duck with salted caramel sauce. The French owner stopped by twice to make sure we were enjoying our experience.

We sat at the bar at Alta's. The food was very good. I almost made the mistake of ordering greens with my wrap but the bartender was quick to let me know that I should get the fries as they were a mix between sweet potatoes and regular potatoes. He was absolutely correct and not to be missed. My boyfriend... More

We ate at the bar and had a great meal. The waitress, Lisa, was fantastic! We especially loved the Alta salad and the macaroons for dessert. Fun, semi-casual ambiance and very good food.
