About Restaurant Alma
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

Restaurant Alma Ratings and Reviews
Alma has amazing service, cocktails, and food every time we visit. The rotating menu offers something seasonal and interesting every time. Alma is consistently the best dining experience in the Twin Cities and is amongst the best restaurants in the country.
This restaurant stands far above any other. This is not just a restaurant, it is an experience! The dishes are extraordinary like nothing ever done before! The menu items are unique with many layers of flavors. The staff is warm, friendly and knowledgeable. I could go on and on. If you are a foodie this place is a MUST!
Food, service and ambience were all perfect!! Our server Dain was perhaps the best server we have ever had—super attentive and knew exactly what we wanted when even we didn’t know. The wine pairings were fantastic and the food is definitely some of the best in Minneapolis. We will definitely be going back.
We had an amazing meal here for our 20th wedding anniversary, after having first been here for our 10th. Everything we ate or drank - from the olives and cheese nibbles to the bread and butter to the meal and the wine - were delicious. The server knew a lot about the menu and ingredients and made some good recommendations. We opted for a dessert from the cafe' instead of from the menu and it was the perfect thing to top off a wonderful meal.
We love Alma. We have always had a very good experience dining there. The staff is wonderful and the food is (for me) an adventure and always very, very good; and the presentation is also appealing. Every one at Alma acts like our dining experience is important and the result has always been a wonderful dining experience.
Great ambiance and service here. I ate off the vegetarian menu and found everything to be tasty if not rich. I think a lot of the vegetarian options were very rich and could have used more variety in flavors. Having said that, they were all individually good. They just maybe didn't make a great sequence.
Dinner was overall good - we had the crudo and squid dish to start, very light and delicious. The lobster ricotta gnocchi was so yummy with a perfect balance of rich sauce! The pheasant was perfectly cooked! The sea scallops were the star of the night with an amazing aioli
Amazing. There is the slightly more casual cafe and then the restaurant. We went to the restaurant where it was a fixed price 3 course dinner. 59 for the food. 25 for wine pairings or bottles available. The food was amazing. My second course was ricotta gnocchi with lobster. Omg. Heaven. Excellent dessert. Wonderful service. My new favorite in the twin cities.
The occasion was my wife's birthday and it was a weekday. We were 15 mins early and they accommodated us with no waiting time at all. We are vegetarians (egg/cheese okay) and they had a vegetarian menu which was great. We took all the 6 items on the menu to try it out and also did the wine paring. We loved 4 of the 6 dishes and 1 was just okay and 1 both of us did not like it. The wine's provided were great but I felt it was too less, looked like 10-15% of the glass volume on 2 of the three we got,maybe they were pricier wines not sure. But I would definitely come back. The ambiance was great, they took great care of us. Its a bit pricey and would mostly save it for a special occasion. Also, have enough time because it will be around 2 hours to complete a 3 course dinner.
The friendly and knowledgeable staff made this tasting menu and wine pairing experience excellent and memorable. Dishes were unique and well thought out, and the overall result was incredibly filling. There’s a delightful comraderie among diners, and I’d highly endorse dining at the bar to have an immersive view of the action in the kitchen.
