Mark is very handsome. Food and wine and cocktails also were handsome, but not as handsome as Mark. 10/10 would recommend.

Delightful place with incredible food. Chicken thigh entree is one of the best, and the pastas are all home made and delicious.

Food was great. Service was very friendly and very efficient. If anything the tables might be a bit tight together but understand there is limited space. We enjoyed the evening very much.

My salad was so over-laden with vinagar that I could not enjoy the remainder of my meal.

We really enjoyed Cafe Alma for Sunday brunch. There were choices for everyone and the special (Lobster Eggs Benedict) was terrific). The bakery is so tempting we had to take items home for later. Excellent service. Nice art on the walls. Our table was ready early. No complaints!

Alma never disappoints. Had the charcuterie board to start. Then the duck frites for dinner. It was ducking amazing! 😊 The Pinot noir by the glass is divine. Service was lovely and overall an enjoyable experience.

The total experience was great! We were there for Happy Hour and dinner.
We shared the radicchio salad and my partner had the shrimp and orzo pasta and I had the chicken thighs and yams.
All was delicious.

Great. I love this place. Perfect for a nice, informal dinner on a cold January night. I asked for a cocktail recommendation and the server suggested something with a name like What Jeff Did in Mexico City. Weird name, but I really liked the drink.

As usual, the food was delicious. We had the cheese platter, which always includes their house made ricotta topped with olive oil and honey. Love their bread and crackers. I had the lemon orzo pasta with shrimp, mascapone, and delicata squash, all of which tempered the lemony edge. My husband had the lamb burger - always wonderful - with the crispy potatoes. I highly recommend that dish. I had the coconut tapioca dessert with pineapple while my husband had the apple crisp. The ginger ice cream that came with it was particularly wonderful. I love Alma!!!
