The food was incredibly flavorful, balanced between rich fatty, salty, and a little heat. Each dish was beautiful on the plate and tested incredible. Definitely the perfect place for a birthday or anniversary as it's intimate dining and delicious food that is very much their own.
Delicious food, charming server, friendly and efficient front of the house staff. Great place to celebrate a special occasion. We will be back!
Excellent as always! In my opinion, the best fine dining to be had in Mpls./St. Paul.
What a delightful birthday dinner but our server Daniel was the highlight. Thanks for a memorable evening.
Impeccable service and amazing food! We were not disappointed at all.
The food was excellent but the portion sizes were very disappointing. We left hungry which shouldn’t happen with these prices.
Anniversary and food was salty.
We celebrated our engagement recently at Alma recently and were blown away by the food, the atmosphere and the service. It’s worth the price and worth the visit. We’ll remember that experience for years to come!
Restaurant Alma continues to be one of the very top restaurants in town. Beautiful space, amazing food and top notch service. We were treated so incredibly well during our last visit. Can't recommend highly enough!
Best food in Twin Cities! The restaurant ambiance, food quality, service, everything is phenomenal.
Great service, exceptional food, Love the ambience
The only complaint I had was that we were looking forward to a leisurely dinner and were happy we were able to get in on short notice at 9pm. Unfortunately we didn't realize the time the restaurant closed so we ended up having to somewhat rush the last half of our dinner. It would have been helpful had the waitress mentioned this. Overall the food was fantastic and good service.
We had a great meal. Highly recommend for the quality of the meal. For a fine dining restaurant the service was just okay.
The food was amazing! We can't wait to go back.
Loved it. We have celebrated birthdays and family events here and have always had a fantastic experience.
Our meal and wine pairings were excellent and the service was exceptional.
A truly fine meal that hit on all cylinders. Inventively conceived and expertly executed dishes with the best ingredients. There is some clear skill at work here. Additionally, the wine pairing well complemented each dish, each elevating the other. Again, well done. Don’t expect huge portions, but 3 appropriately sized dishes, leaving a bit of room for dessert if desired. The service was friendly, professional and attentive, in other words, excellent. I’ve not read any of the other reviews, but I’m sure others have mentioned that on offer is a 3 course prix fixe with a few sharable items available as well as dessert, both separate from the prix fixe. Finally, there is an optional wine pairing with a 3 oz pour for each course, which I was quite pleased with. They have an excellent and eclectic wine list if you prefer by the bottle. There is an astute mind behind the wine program that understands food/wine pairing.
We had the 3 course dinner with wine pairings.
The food was very good. The wine pours were small considering the price.
We went to dinner at Alma to celebrate our anniversary and it did not disappoint. Our meal was great. We started with wonderful cocktails and had a nice wine during the meal and they even comped us some sparkling wine to toast our anniversary. The desserts were amazing and the coffee and espresso were nummy. Not cheap, but worth it. The service was a little spotty at times but mostly good. Highly recommended!
Best meal and service we’ve had in town over the last few years! Great service, great food, great space.
Had a reservation for a very important date. Had a very nice romantic/cozy section next to the bar. Great service, food, people, and environment. Very satisfied with our visit to the great Restaurant Alma.
High quality food. Excellent wine pairings. relaxed yet attractive and elegant setting
My favorite restaurant. Always great food and incredible service.
Good food good service. They sneak a 3% surcharge for benefits on the bill. (Small font at the bottom of the menu) They should just raise their prices 3% to be honest about it
All around outstanding. One of the best restaurants in Minneapolis. Start at the bar in the cafe and head over to other side for fine dining after.
This use to be a favorite place for us to go and have an epic meal. You could pick any option and absolutely love it. Over half our meal was mediocre which truly makes us sad. We loved this place and long for it to be back to what it was. Service was friendly but slow.
While I respect creative menus, and while I think it’s a great business idea to have the prix fixe menu, I must still say that for a mandatory $62 I expect a lot, and I came away with a large MEH. I came away thinking Alma just has a lot of attitude. And while I respect and support the 3% surcharge for providing healthcare and retirement for their employees, I then expect the employees to be a little cheerier about their jobs. I just didn’t have a great time for the price, and only one of my three courses was memorable. The other two were sub-par for Mpls/St Paul restaurants. Just nothing special at all.
We celebrated our anniversary here and it was a wonderful splurge. The food was spectacular, the service was warm and attentive. We appreciate the care they show for vegetarians—separate vegetarian menus with many delightful choices, some of which are vegetarian versions of items on the regular menu. Wines by the glass are very good and good value (considering).
Food and service were excellent, but the restaurant never returned my post-meal call with a question about my meal.
Most expensive meal we’ve ever had and also the most elegant and abundantly tasteful. Slightly disappointed that our three months in advance reserved table request had one seat facing the busy, open kitchen. The seats along the windows would have been more deserving of an anniversary request. That aside, our experience was memorable and lovely!
Really amazing. My wife and I have been wanting to get here for a long time. Finally made it on our anniversary. Was all that we had expected, hope for and more. Will be back...
Best meal we’ve had in years! Delicious! Great for a special occasion!
Great service. Very knowledgeable and helpful staff. Amazing food.
A little pricey, but one of the best meals we have ever had! The wine pairing was excellent as well.
For the most part it was a lovely experience. Most of the food was prepared well and delicious, while my main dish was over salted and almost inedible. Service was attentive unless we were asking for something specific like a vegetarian menu- we had to ask three different people to finally get a copy that was promised.
The experience was good enough that we would give it a try again at some point, but with so much competition for a special occasion dinner that it will probably be a while.
What an amazing meal! From the first bite of complimentary cheese and olives to the end enjoying dessert along with a glass of port our meal was a culinary delight. We've not dined in the restaurant before - just the cafe - but with the menu changing seasonally, rest assured we'll be back.
A fantastic foodie experience
Took my wife for her birthday. Alma is one of her favorite restaurants. The service is spectacular, with great comments on every dish. My biggest complaint on ambience is the cold temperature of the dining room. My wife and I were both bundled in sweatshirts and still cold. The issue I have with the food is sometimes it's just too cute. So many great odd ingredients. Hard to satisfy any cravings here, because I am being served something that I don't normally eat. Examples: Bison tartar, Corncake, sturgeon. A very nice restaurant for an adventurous mood.
