    Altana was a great choice for dinner before a show at the Fulton. Ambiance was perfect for Christmas spirit. Service and drinks were excellent.

    Loved the atmosphere. We asked if a cocktail could be made as a mock tail and they did. However, they charged us the same price as if we did get the alcoholic version, that was unexpected. We did not ask to have it adjusted though. Our server seemed anxious and pushed our dinner along. Would have appreciated no pressure. Food is always very good so I expect we’ll return when the occasion calls.

    Server was robotic. Not attentive to our needs throughout our dining experience. Sold us on the fish special with risotto only to come back and tell us they were sold out. And oh by the way it was only 5:30pm on a Saturday night. Weird creepy older manager type individual floating around the restaurant. No interchange or "how's your dinner". Just an overall unpleasant experience for what should have been an easy fix. No attention to small details is concerning enough that we will not be back.

    we were seated for about 30 mins. without anyone coming to us. while multiple tables that arrive after us were being taken care of. it was the first time we’ve ever been, what a bad first impression. we went to the exchange next door as a “walk in” and we’re serve immediately. will never return again!

    I always enjoy my time at ALTANA. Missed some things from the former menu. Avacado appetizer. I'm always thinking the menu is just a little shy. maybe it could be expanded just a little. Everythings always amazing though.

    I was a beautiful setting on the rooftop but just a little chilly. Service was good but a little slow getting our drinks. Maybe understaffed? The cod dish with crabmeat was outstanding and my husband really enjoyed his vegetarian pasta dish.

    I love the rooftop lounge! I first went there in 2021 with a friend for dinner. We both had the lobster roll and it was delicious! I'm from New England and am a bit finicky about my seafood, and was happily surprised at how good the lobster roll was. I went again yesterday for my birthday. Although it was cool and a bit windy, I really wanted to eat on the rooftop and watch the sunset. We were the only ones up there, and it was perfect. The sunset was gorgeous and it was worth being a little cool. We started with the charcuterie board which was just the right size for the tow of us. Lovely selection of meats, cheeses and fresh fruit. I had one of the signature cocktails, the bourbon bramble. It was so good. For dinner, I had the pork tenderloin, which was served on a bed of kale with baby Brussels sprouts, butternut squash and bacon. It was amazing! The pork was so tender that you could cut it with a butter knife. The veggies were cooked perfectly and were very flavorful. My husband had the crab stuffed Cod which had a cream based sauce, and he said it was excellent. I also want to compliment our wait staff. Even though we were the only diners on the rooftop, the service was excellent. Josh, our waiter was covering a lot of ground but we never felt ignored. I know it must have been extra work with just us up there, but everyone was wonderful. I did see the indoor dining room and it is lovely - very warm and inviting. I know I will be going back soon to eat indoors, and to have the crab stuffed Cod and another of Altana's signature cocktails.

    Great rooftop dining in the evening. The food was delicious but very limited on choices (not as many as in the past) Josh was a good server, but he rushed us in the end, when the kitchen was about to close. Recommendation: The Straws should be wrapped (or not handed to the guests with bare hands...let's remember it is going into my mouth)

    The food was very tasty and came out relatively quickly, the drinks were solid as well. I felt like although it was pretty empty at the time, the service was just ok. The rooftop location is cool and the sunset was nice, however the furniture wasn’t especially well-kept. Overall was a good experience.

    I really wanted to like this place. We left after the appetizer. Wine selection was dismal. Food was pretty good actually but I had NO view, napkins were paper, the ladies bathroom was a total wreck with no soap, and my plastic water glass was filthy! Our server was sweet but so quiet and unsure of herself that it was difficult to relax. I think I was expecting a much nicer place.

    We went to Altana with friends of ours this last week. We’ve eaten there before, and it’s been a generally good experience, however I’m doubtful we will be back after this last time. We had reservations, and were seated right away. The server was friendly but the service was very slow. Initially, we didn’t mind the slow service because we were out with good friends and enjoyed the atmosphere and company, but our entire meal took about 2 hours. We ordered the market salad, the wedge salad, the pork chop, and the cod. We shared a charcuterie board. The board was ok. It had 4 different cheeses, and 2 meats. The fresh berries were nice. There were no crackers, spreads or bread to go along with it. The big issue was the market salad. The server described it with strawberries, blueberries, almonds, and some veggies. What was served was a few diced tomatoes, half a red onion and a pile of spring mix lettuce with a 2 tablespoons of dressing on the side (I didn’t request for the salad not to be dressed). When the server came by later, I clarified what was suppose to be in the salad, because I thought I must have just heard him wrong. Nope, my salad was missing all of those items. He said “huh, I guess the kitchen must be out of stuff. Sorry about that. I’ll check on it”. He did not check on it. I did not eat the 2 cups of spring mix or the poorly cut (strong) onions. As for the rest of the food, it was enjoyed. The cod looked great with tons of crab on it. The pork chop was really good (small) but the sweet potatoes were delicious. The other wedge salad was huge (and had everything on it). Everything came out on the cooler side, but we didn’t mind that too much. Sure enough, the $27 dollar market salad was on our bill. I had to request to have them remove it. Which he did very kindly, but still! I’ve never done that before and would really like to not repeat it. I would have happily ordered and paid for another meal given the chance.

    The food took over an hour to be done, it was only a salad with some chicken. The waitress was so sweet. The whole salad was just a head of lettuce cut in half and put on a plate.
