We hope to see you soon!
Everything was great! Service was friendly and professional, a clean casual environment with great/interesting food. The portions were small but reasonable for the quality and price.
The food was unique and delicious, and the chef was so friendly. She came out at the end to ask us if we had liked the meal. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes unusual and delicious food.
We ate at Alma on a Friday evening after a very busy week. It was the perfect place to relax, have great food and excellent service. The menu of small and large plates is well thought out with enough choices to mix and max well. The pomello salad was a great shared starter with the citrus taste enhanced by chiles and salt. The lobster spaghettini was equally good. The wine list is small but again well selected - we enjoyed a refreshing Spanish white which went well with everything. We hope to be back soon.
The food was very good! Flatbread and maitake mushroom were the highlights. Service was excellent, very friendly, fun, and attentive.
Fabulous waitress, but the food didn’t blow me away. The entrees were on the pricey side of Toronto hipster spots and were quite low on substance. Flavours were reasonably good. Highlights were the pomelo salad and pork dumplings. Don’t bother with flatbread. It’s literally just hot flat bread. A little literal.
Our waitress was fantastic and handled the delay in our order brilliantly.
Impeccable service. A delightful
and delicious meal!
A wonderful restaurant with fantastic service. Food is incentive and interesting without being fussy or pretentious. I look forward to coming back.
Absolutely amazing brunch with really unique food. Highly recommended.
Food a bit disappointing and there was a draft from the door.
Brought my dad in since he was visiting and it was one of the most amazing meals we've had. Staff was extremely kind and accommodating even with my friend who had several allergies! The food was a perfect combination of nostalgia and adventure. Familiar enough that you recognize where the dish stems from but made with ingredients that intrigue and amaze your taste buds.
Fantastic fantastic fantastic!! What a great place, well done on all levels
This is a nice, quiet, unpretentious place that serves up good food. We had a nice time here. The reason for the 3-stars on the food is because we felt like the Duck Hearts dish was under-seasoned and lacked flavour. My wife actually didn't finish her portion. I don't think this is because we don't like duck hearts (we are pretty adventurous with our food and we didn't mind the texture of the meat) but we just didn't find any flavour in how it was cooked. I also wish the Lobster Spaghettini had some additional flavour. However, the Pork wontons were amazing, as was the Bread + Cheese appetizer.
The service was great, and I liked the ambiance as well. The cocktails and wine were also very nice. I still think this place is worth checking out if you're in the area.
Our experience was quite nice. We were the only table at 6pm and we picked 2 snacks, 2 small and 1 large plate. We ordered the pomelo salad which unfortunately had something hard inside the salad. We can’t figure out what it was, the chef came out to apologize and gave us an extra plate complimentary as well as she didn’t charge us for the salad. The food was nice, although it was a bit smaller than I thought. Overall I appreciate the chef coming to talk to us and also providing us with an extra plate. It was very nice of her
Great food and service, creative and well executed.
Alma was incredible. Excellent food with informative and warm service to match. I'd definitely reccomend eating here, and I'll be returning for their fascinating interpretation of Chinese/Canadian/Indian food.
This is an excellent spot. Would highly recommend for brunch. Lovely wait staff, very very reasonable prices for the quality of food. Looking forward to going back for dinner one day!
Small, comfortable room with a relaxed ambiance.
Unusual dishes with Italian, Asian and French influences.
slight over salting in pomelo salad;
pork a bit chewy.
But mostly toothsome results this evening.
Dessert a standout:
chrysanthemum ice cream on marzipan.
Smooth and friendly service.
Will be back.
A beautifully crafted menu that highlights the professional and personal experiences of Chef Anna Chen. The service was also excellent...attentive and friendly. Unique, fresh and exquisitely executed Alma provides an accessible fine dining experience that I would recommend to anyone. I look forward to coming back to the see the menu show case a new season of flavours. Thank you!
The food was delicious, but a little bit too pricey for what it was. It was a cold night outside, but they need to improve their curtain situation by the door - there were very cold drafts blowing into the restaurant.
Really enjoyed our meal here. Dining out while doing the 'dry January' thing can sometimes be awkward but the staff happily recommended nice teas. Service was exceptional, and the food was really nice, especially the roasted beets and chicken fried rice in lotus leaves. Looking forward to going back in the spring.
Simple but varied ingredients combined to create layered flavours. There is no wrong choice on the menu. Service was excellent and the ambiance perfect for date night.
Excellent, except that if it is cold outside, sitting up front is chilly. Needs to upgrade its curtains.
Very thoughtful menu executed with skill. I haven’t had a meal like this for some time. It was outstanding.
What a great find. The food was unique and delicious. The service was very good as well, perfectly attentive and knowledgeable. The made to order flatbread was delicious, can be shared. We will definitely be back.
Wonderful food and ambiance at a surprisingly affordable price. We grazed on a series of small plates during two and a half hours of intimate conversation. Everything was good but I particularly recommend the flatbread, the rapini dip, and the sweet potatoes.
We had an incredible meal at Alma. We tried 6 dishes between the two of us and everything was spot on. I'm still dreaming about the flatbread. Everything is really fresh and seasonal. Plus, they have a great selection of wines and digestifs.
Surprising with semplicity.
That’s all i have to say but still i have to use at least 50 digits.
Beautiful food, excellent service in a cozy atmosphere.
Our new favourite restaurant in the neighbourhood! The service is outstanding and the food is even better. Wish the glasses of wine were a bit more generous, but that would be my only complaint.
Food was great but had a limited selection of vegetarian options. They had top 40 playing in the restaurant and felt odd eating my high end dinner listening to Justin Beiber.
We sampled the food like a tasting menu. All the starters were just divine, especially the hot crispy flatbread and the cheese dip. The small dishes and large dishes are cooked with both precision and care. Look forward to coming again. Chef Anne is amazing.
I found Alma on line for a group birthday dinner. I can’t say we are easy to feed with different dietary concerns but we all enjoyed the food and atmosphere. We felt we found a new gem in an under appreciated neighbourhood. I hope they do well because the care and love comes through in all the dishes. All were shared between us so we all got to taste everything that was ordered.
The food and service were outstanding! The server gave great recommendations and serving suggestions for sharing. I will definitely recommend and return! Still dreaming about the olive oil cake with lemon!
Food was delicious, amazing portion size for the price and quality of food. Simple yet so much thought has been put into every detail. Highly recommend!
one of the best meals we've had in the city, coming from a professional Chef and a major foodie.
Fantastic food. Great service. Friendly staff accommodated our family (toddler). Cant wait to come back.
Had the bread, rapini dip, salami, cabbage dumplings, beef skewers, zucchini gnocchi & chicken lotus leaf rice.
All amazing and well balanced. Good wine list and everything is priced very reasonable.
Love they serve burdock beers supplied from next door
My favourite dishes were the artichokes, ciccoria, and lotus rice however every dish we ordered was amazing! Full of interesting flavours that were creatively paired - giving my taste buds a treat! I'm still dreaming about the meal and would definitely recommend Alma to all my friends and family.
This is my fourth time and Chef Anna continues to amaze with her innovative dishes!
The food was amazing. Come with a friend or 2. Choices are great as shareable - that way you get a chance to try a bit of everything. Staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. I'll be back for sure!
