Alta occupies a beautiful 19th century townhouse in the heart of Greenwich Village. Our main dining area has a soaring 27-foot ceiling, and dates back to the early part of the century. There is a warm welcoming feeling as soon as you step through the doors. In the winter, we have two wood burning fireplaces to keep you warm. In the summer, the doors are open and you feel as if you could be close to the Mediterranean.

We are a small plate restaurant, and in our food you can discover the influence of all the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea, which we consider to be a wonderful flavor palate. The small plates allow you to experience more of these flavors.

Larry Baldwin is our chef at Alta. Gifted with a discerning and creative approach to tastes and textures, he carefully selects all the ingredients to compose a menu full of delicious surprises.

Please note that Alta accepts only cash and American Express.

This birthday dinner was terrific. Every small plate was equally scrumptious, our server was professional, helpful and friendly and they went to the trouble of giving personalized placemats with birthday greetings. A great night.

Alta is a one of a kind restaurant. First off, the food is absolutely delicious and the menu has a wide variety of options. The fried goat cheese with lavender honey is a must and so are the lamb meatballs. In addition to the food, the layout of the restaurant is perfect for a date, having the multiple levels overlooking each other. 10/10 would recommend to anyone.

My wife and I go to Alta every week. The food is excellent and so is the service. I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys Tapas and Spanish style cooking.

Everything about our experience was wonderful. It was a really cold day and sat next to the fireplace. The food was amazing. We got there early and it was quiet. Good to do that if you want to talk because it gets loud once it fills up. Nice for a romantic dinner as well.

We had bee to Alta years ago and were surprised at the decrease in quality of the food. The service was good but not great. Excellent wine list. Our bill for two was near $300. Seemed a bit steep even for NYC. Would not return again.
