What appears to be a tiny, basement bar/restaurant under a townhouse in the Village is actually a 3 story home to some of the best small-plate dining in the city. We went at 6:30 pm, so it was pretty empty and quiet. I imagine it could be a little loud if it filled up more. But the atmosphere is very... More

Having dinner at Alta on a Thursday night was a lot of fun. The atmosphere is lively but not too loud, the menu is diverse and interesting, and everything we ate was excellent. Service was friendly but efficient.

We went to Alta on a recommendation and were not disappointed. As you walk past the bar to the seating area you get the sense that this place is somehow older than it should be with exposed beams, diverse staff and a superb tapas (mostly sharing plates) menu for all tastes. The wine choices are also good and range from... More

I took a group of friends that were visiting from out of town to Alta, and it was really worth the experience. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and the waiter was always available to me throughout the night just when I needed him. It's a Tapas bar, so the sharing of meals is perfect for a medium sized... More

Alta is a pretty nice tapas place. The atmosphere and decor will not fail to impress. I wanted to try the whole shebang option, but I don't think we had the numbers for that. Either way, we selected pretty good dishes. Was definitely a fan of the paella, roasted pork belly, and salmon tartare. The other items were not bad... More

Started off in the bar for happy hour. Good value with two small plates for $8 (had the fried goats cheese and bacon wrapped dates & olives) and selection of wines for $8 a glass. We had dinner in the top level with excellent service from Jeremy. As one of hour party was vegan we mainly had vegetarian options. We... More

Unlike many restaurants where the great ambience is confined to the main dining room Alta preserves this ambience on each floor. When we were shepherded upstairs each level was intimate and lively. The service was outstanding and the food was terrific.

Alta remains one of my most favorite restaurants in the city. Tucked in a townhouse in the village, it appears as if out of nowhere, filled with a plethora of smells and tastes that compliment one another in a very sophisticated way. My favorite dish is still the Brussel Sprouts, and, of course, no meal at Alta is complete without... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
