We were very happy with this place! Food was amazing! Building is beautiful & server was great. It was so hard choosing what to order because the menu was pretty decently sized & everything sounded tempting. Everything was delicious! Our favorite was the Brussels sprouts & honestly I’m not even that big a fan of Brussels sprouts. The fried goat cheese in lavender honey was AMAZING. I also got the sunchoke risotto and burrata - both really good. My husband had the shrimp and hen of the woods tempura & enjoyed both immensely. We got the asparagus which was really tasty although the menu said ‘cured egg’ we didn’t notice anything egg-like. Unfortunately we were too full to try dessert. Wine was good. Overall, we spent less than we thought we would although this is definitely a fairly pricey restaurant (cash or Amex only too). We agree it was worth it though!

Place and the décor very nice and cozy, the wine list very interesting , the food not that great we ask for some "tapas" to share and the flavor were not at par with the expectation. We ask for a "paella" that it didn't make it close to what a real paella is all about.

Came here for my Bday celebration, waited for the waiter for 20 minutes, the food is very small and consider the price its not worth it. Also our food came at the different time, so when half of my friend finished eating the other half just get the food. Not worth it.

This is a perfect place for a casual birthday dinner.
First of all, they personalized a happy birthday menu/placemat. The server was professional, friendly and helpful. The ambiance is open and spacious.
We ordered several small plates (tapas) and each was delicious - mushroom flatbread, Brussel sprouts, asparagus were among our favorites. And of course dessert had a candle in it. I’ll be back.

Me, the girlfriend and her friend came one evening on his recommendation and boy he did not steer us wrong. Alta is in a Greenwich Village townhouse and occupies 3 floors. The first floor has a dining area and a bar area, the second floor is another dining area with a cut out in the middle so you overlook the first floor dining area and the third floor is another more intimate dining space. We got here for out 7PM reservation and were seated pretty promptly. We got our menus and ordered some drinks - cocktail for my girlfriend and beers for me and her friend. We perused the menu and it's more tapas style. We decided to order in phases so we could enjoy and order different things and not get overstuffed. We ultimately wound up ordering about 9 different things including the Brussels sprouts, the bacon wrapped dates, the fried goat cheese, lamb meatballs, risotto, gnocchi and octopus. We thought the sprouts and goat cheese were especially good. Service was excellent as our waitress checked on us multiple times and the other wait staff checked to make aure our water glasses were full throughtout the night. Including 3 beers, 2 cocktails, dinner, one dessert, tax, tip - for the 3 of us, the bill came out to about 250 bucks. Check it out, Alta is good.
