The food was good. Not great. Not into large portions. ...but... Portions quite small. Overpriced.
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.
Well worth the price tag. I will definitely go back.
The tasting menu was outstanding and the wine pairing exquisite. A wonderful experience!
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.
Went there for Valentine’s Day- I don’t know if the menu or the server was better. It was the perfect night.
We went for the Valentine’s Day dinner. The entire staff was very friendly and the food was outstanding.
Great Food and Wine Selection. Can't wait to go back.
The only thing that surpassed the incredible food, was the exceptional, knowledgeable and attentive service team!
Entirely delightful evening. Each course was perfectly prepared. Our server was knowledgeable, available and helpful throughout. Ambiance lovely. Highly recommend
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.
Had a great time as always
Outstanding! Never a bad meal.
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.
Excellent food, great service; one of my favorite restaurants
