We came here for a birthday dinner and it was amazing! The style of food is Spanish/Mexican fusion. The food was OUTSTANDING. So well seasoned and packed full of flavour! There was not one thing that we ordered that we regretted! Atmosphere was great, you can either sit inside or outside, but the inside is beautifully designed, very modern. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Altiro’s food is consistently delicious. The mixed drinks are a wee bit strong for me so I stick with wine when I’m there.

I was delighted to discover this place with my friend tonight. The staff was super welcoming, the menu although not overwhelmingly extensive was full of beautifully presented items with fresh often innovative ingredients.
The restaurant has adorable decor and is really sparkling clean. I hope they add a few more light salad and ceviche items. I definitely will come back soon with my husband & more friends. I believe they have music on Friday nights.
A real winner to discover.

So good!
My family said this was the best meal they ever had.
The paella was moist and delicious with their own special flare.
Love the fried egg on the papas bravas.

Outstanding value during La Grange Restaurant Week: $30 for two entrees and two drinks. Salmon tacos with mustard sauce were unique, and the paella was tasty and did not take forever to prepare and serve.

Sort of a strange take on tapas. Menu actually lends itself to ordering what seems like your own personal entree, as the taco dishes come with three to an order. The food was tasty and our waiter did a great job of answering our questions and making accommodations for an expectant mother in our group, but I was not blown away in any way. Cocktails were tasty but at the same price point as a swanky cocktail bar in the city, I just expected to be more impressed.

Food was good, and I would return to give it another try. Service was okay, our server just wasn't very friendly, any questions regarding the menu, she just seemed like it was an inconvenience to answer. Its a tapas and small plates place. Biggest complaint however, we did share appetizers and sides and we expressly mentioned we were ordering our own entrees (there was 4 of us) and our entrees came out at all different times (1st one, then 2 more and mine almost after everyone was done). at $50 a head I expect better service. I think if I return I'll get a some of the tacos and a beer or wine and see if its a better experience for the price.

Not a great experience at Altiro. While the staff was friendly, service was pretty slow. The portions are very small but relatively expensive and the food didn't sit well with us. Overall, would not return.

Food and drinks are amazing. Waiter rushed a little and took plates or drinks off table without asking if we were done. He also poured a beer when my husband asked for draft.

Just about everything we tried was very spicy. The server helped but even the things he said weren't spicy were too hot for me. The bigger problem was the noise level. When we got there, it was fine but once it got crowded, the cranked up the music and it was unbearable. When we walked in the door, we were very hopeful because it's a cute place and all the employees were friendly. But once it got crowded, the service deteriorated. Started out as a good experience but ended up a big disappointment.

Good place for tapas, live music on the night we were there. Wouldn’t recommend if you’re trying to have a quick meal! Apetizer comes out quick but tacos take awhile but they were good! Hallway where restroom is has no lights because they are burnt out??? so it’s pitch black and you have to search for the door!

The cocktails were creative and tasty. All the food dishes were wonderful. We especially loved the ceviche and the most incredible paella. We also had the best tiramisu dessert ever, which is an off-menu special - in our case a birthday.

A very classy yet comfortably decorated establishment. The staff was top notch with very attentive service. The food was delicious. Every dish was as wonderful as the one before it since it was tapas. It is actually now my new favorite restaurant.

We loved the craft cocktails at Altiro. They were excellent. We ordered three different tacos and shared them among us. Also, we had the Mexican corn. Our guacamole appetizer was tasty but very small. Finally, the fried sweet plantain was outstanding. Next time we will try the Tapas.

They seem to have worked out the kinks. The first week of opening was a nightmare (summer '18). They didn't have enough servers and one woman seemed to be working the whole dinning room. Much better now! Really enjoy it! Great food and ambience!

our waitress was nice, but gave me the wrong cocktail twice and just called it the name i originally ordered. i drank because it was good, but not what i ordered. our waitress also failed to put in our order and realized 20 minutes later so we waited about 30-40 minutes for our food. the food was great. then when we went to pay our bill, she brought the bill, i placed my card. waited another 10 minutes for her to bring another print out of our bill. no apologies or acknowledgement of what had taken place the entire meal, then proceeded to pretty much rush us out the restaurant. maybe next time it’ll be better.

Our drinks and food were delicious. Each of the cocktails are described in detail, presented beautifully, and taste delicious. The food is authentic, perfectly prepared, and served picture perfect. Holiday decorations were plentiful but not overdone. The lightning is very nice, we could easily read the menu yet it felt intimate. The patchwork fabric chairs are artfully used through the restaurant and there is a nice size bar for cocktails or can eat at it as well. Our server was very knowledgable. Our cocktails and appetizer was very timely, followed by our entrees. This was our second visit, our first was equally as delicious and and enjoyable.

Highly recommend. Great cozy atmosphere. The entire staff was personable. We ordered several items and everything tasted yummy. There was live music (guitar with woman singing) which was a great addition. We were seated next to her and we're a bit worried she would be too loud -- but it was great background music and festive. We will definitely be back. Great addition to La Grange.

While the food was good overall, the portions were quite small for the money. It’s a small space and there was a woman singing. She wasn’t good and it was very distracting and loud. The patrons had to shout to be heard over her.

Really loved the food at this place! Service is so bad! After four Bad experiences with the service, we decided to venture back. While my husband was waiting to use the restroom, the candles they had on a ledge on the wall, burnt my husband’s coat. Scary they would even have real candles. Definitely a fire hazard. The owner said she would take care of us. They took nothing off the bill! Very disappointing. After that, my families entrées came, While I waited 10 minutes before mine arrived. I really want to like this place. But it’s so bad! 😬

We were excited to see that this restaurant opened in Lagrange, as we had experienced their cuisine in Geneva Illinois.
Inside the décor is very modern open and bright. The service from our server, Omar, was right on....his suggestions and descriptions helped us make some great choices.
For one thing, the drinks are very innovative, and especially too easy to drink! I had the Al Verde, which used a tomatillo-serrano ice cube that made the drink more and more flavorful as it melted. My wife had the Al Florinda, which was hibiscus (Jamaica) and bourbon, the glass smeared with cinnamon sugar...Wow! I think my favorite was the Al Churo, because of the smoky mezcal, which I love.
For dinner, we shared a bowl of Paella. The seafood was so fresh and flavorful, although I wish I had gotten my own! We also shared a Mexican corn style side, El Elotito.
We really enjoyed our service and food flavors, and cannot wait to go back, especially for the drinks. A welcome addition to Lagrange's dining choices!
