Was visiting Minneapolis/Saint Paul for a long weekend, and asked 8-12 people, whose opinion about food I trusted, where I should eat and shouldn't miss. More often than not Alma was first place named. It was so frequently mentioned that I was highly disappointed when I used Alma's website reservation link and there was nothing available the night I could go. I called, I emailed, I got a reservation! The tasting menu is incredibly reasonably priced compared to the quality of the food they produced. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The cocktails adventurous but familiar enough to not be intimidating to the less experienced at my table. It was a fantastic experience all round.
