“Nice spot. Variety of wines.”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Dined here while in the area on business. Enjoyed the wine and a light dinner while sitting at the bar. Staff was welcoming and friendly without being over the top. Interesting mix of locals and tourists.

“Delicious”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

This restaurant is a s good as it gets. Lovely service, great drinks and the duck was one of the best I have ever had. It is in the center of town, and very popular. One good thing is it takes reservations and not all do. A definite must in Lenox.

“very tasty lunch”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Lenox is a favorite Berkshire town to visit and Alta was an added delight.
Very crowded at lunchtime but we were immediately seated.
The food was excellent and the staff was very pleasant.
Large portions at reasonable prices.
At one point the owner came out and asked how we liked our meals.
Very nice touch.

“Excellent cooking!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

The food was well prepared and presented. Service was attentive, and the wine list tempting. I can see why it's hard to get a table, so reserve ahead.

“Fun place, good food and service”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

The local Berkshires magazine had an article on restaurants and a couple of local celebs chose Alta as their favorite so we had an easy choice.
Alta is in the heart of Lenox and a fun, cozy spot with interesting menu choices and good food. Service was attentive but relaxed and the place was hopping on a pre-season Tuesday evening.
The only disappointment was a hot flourless chocolate dessert topped with hazelnut gelato in a ramekin that could not be touched. We chased it around the plate, but found that as it cooled the whole thing turned into one big hard chunk.
Other than that final bit, I would give Alta 5 stars!
