Had the Mediterranean salad with the creamy champagne sauce. It was magnifique! The staff were really nice and if I had room I definitely would have had the apple pie. Nice for out door or indoor dining.

The menu is rather limited, but the food and preparation is very good. The portions are ok, and the prices moderate. Unlike the Nudel restaurant across the street, they make a living not a killing.

Alta is a good go-to restaurant for locals and tourists alike. Although the menu is a bit off for me, whatever I have ordered has been well prepared. Lunch is the best bet, especially on a nice day on the front porch.

Fresh ingredients, well prepared. The wine recommendation was spot-on. Service was friendly and prompt. This is a very popular place -- for good reason.

Fresh and inventive menu and delicious food. Good wine list and eating on the patio/porch is delightful. Best food in Lenox!

They have a separate room often used for larger (5 or more) groups, but it is not private. There will be others seated there as well. It is used as a private space for larger groups, as many as 20.
