“A foodie's delight”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

Top shelf, top to bottom. Tucked away in a quiet, unassuming building in a nondescript neighborhood is one of the top restaurants in the Upper Midwest. Reservations a must.

“Casual Elegance”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

The tasting menu changes regularly and is a great way to try foods you might not normally order. Food is prepared to exacting details and the servers know their stuff. Great for a special occasion.

“Fantastic Food and Wonderful Atmosphere”
Reviewed 24 March 2012

We went to Alma because our friends had a $100.00 gift certificate and invited us out. The restaurant is situated on bustling Univeristy Ave. It's in an old building, but has a really nice modern decor. We had a reservation, and they appeared to be a must, as even at 5:30, all of the tables were full or filled up quickly. While the food and wine is high class, you will find people are not dressed up in suits. It gives it a relaxed feel that is very nice for a Saturday night out.

The bartender sent over some complimentary cava which was a nice touch. Wait staff was highly knowledgeable about the menu and the individual options. It was a fixed price menu of three courses, but there were about 4 options under each course. Everything that I had was done to absolute perfection.

We each had the tasting menu at $48/ each. You could purchase the items a la carte as well if you like. We split a bottle of Cava and then there were some misc glasses of wine. Oh, we had dessert too which was very, very good. Our final bill was in the neighborhood of $300 for the four of us. Based on our experience, the price felt right as it was a truly fantastic meal. This wouldn't be an every Saturday night out type of place, we would certainly save it for a special occasion.

I highly recommend Alma to anyone looking for a uniquely Twin Cities Dining Experience.

Reviewed 8 March 2012

Great food. Great atmosphere. Sort of spendy but you get your money's worth.
