Opened in 1999, Restaurant Alma is a casual fine dining restaurant, offering eclectic American cuisine and warm hospitality in a rustic historically preserved building. A high, open beam ceiling, exposed brick columns and concrete floors display the original space, while an open kitchen, banquette seating and gentle lighting contribute to an intimate and contemporary feel.



Alma is best known for sourcing the best quality seasonal ingredients available and features a high percentage of local and organic products. Our menu changes every six to eight weeks, offering both new and signature dishes. We feature both a three course tasting menu format, allowing the customer to select any three dishes from the menu for $59 and a la carte options.



Alma has been awarded 4 stars by the StarTribune and shares the #1 food ranking in ZAGAT for Minneapolis/St. Paul

It was a great experience. The food courses and wine pairings were exemplary not to mention the service.

Alma has always been a go to restaurant for special occasions and this outing did not disappoint in the least. Service was informative and attentive, food prep was exceptional in display, flavor, quantity, and timing. The wine list is adequate and paired well to the palate and the offerings. Noise level is acceptable and conversation easy to conduct and the view of the kitchen and bar always entertaining.

Some of the best food I've had in Minneapolis. Their service is also some of the best I've experienced from the moment you check in with the host until you leave.

The Celery Root soup... YES! We had a great Valentine's Day with their 6-course tasting menu. Overall, for the price, the food was fantastic, but would've liked some larger portions with the meal. I did leave pretty full, but it was mostly because of the large cake at the end. I could've gone with a smaller dessert, and bigger portions on the food that I was actually there for. The sturgeon was also fabulous. Great job, folks.

We thought the service was quite slow. I had called ahead to have a bottle of wine on table and they sat us at the wrong table with no bottle. I had given them my card number for the wine and they didn’t even tell me they were gonna run it before dinner. I received no receipt. I assumed everything would have been rung up together at the end. Overall, it wasn’t the experience i was hoping for. Our server seemed sweet, but not very attentive. I wish it had all gone a bit more smooth. It was for a special occasion and I wasn’t so happy about our experience.

Perfect Dining Experience - Beautifully conceived, prepared and presented food, with skilled, warm service in an elegant setting. Special kudos for the celery root soup, parmesan flan with accompaniments and most of all the shrimp crostone , this latter a complete work of culinary art.

We live in an imperfect world. However, Alma was about as close to perfect as can be achieved by a merely human effort.

Thank you Dain! Our server who made the journey even more extraordinary.

This was my second visit to Restaurant Alma, and I was impressed once again. I am a university student so dining experiences like this aren't a frequent occasion. I don't have a a ton of restaurants of similar caliber to compare Alma to. That said, it is easily the most impressive food I've ever had the privilege of being served. From the amuse bouche, to the three courses, to the desert- everything was perfect. The duck breast with jalapeno chard was incredible. I am also impressed by the fact that Alma provides such an experience without being in any way "stuffy" or pretentious. Even as someone who doesn't normally indulge in meals at this price point, it all felt very approachable and welcoming.

Our first visit. Daniel was helpful, kind and good humored. Our three courses were perfect. My partner adored his vegetarian fusilli and I loved that I could enjoy my fusilli with pheasant. I look forward to our next opportunity to dine at Alma. Thank you.

There are only a handful of restaurants I would travel to their city just to have dinner. Alma is one. I’ve been dining there for a number of years and it just keeps getting better. The flavors are delightful. It’s what you hope for in a restaurant, and then it gets better.

Cafe Alma is predictably exceptional, from A to Z. The chefs, the cooks, the wait staff, the hostesses have all found a way to make this restaurant one of the landmark restaurants of the Twin Cities. The only complaint, an old one but still problematic, is that parking around the restaurant is limited; be prepared to walk a few blocks. Otherwise, Cafe Alma is simply the best.

My sweetheart and I were celebrating a few different occasions and drove 5+ hours to the cities that morning for an evening out. We arrived 20 min or so early for our reservation and decided to have a drink at the bar. We completely lost track of time and realized we were past our reservation time so we went back to the host stand and were seated immediately. We had a show to get to and apologized to our server for being late for our reservation and informed her of our time crunch. They accommodated with perfection. The food was transcendent, the wine pairing magnificent. I didn’t know food could do that. It was the best meal of my life and I feel ridiculous that I even considered having anything planned for afterward.

The meal was the event.

The hospitality and knowledge of our server was on point and the entire staff was so accommodating. We can’t wait to come back and will be recommending this wonderful restaurant to all.
