Outstanding food, flavorful, good portion size, unique flavors!
We were in Minneapolis for a business meeting and wanted to have a fabulous dinner the night before . We chose Alma after some “investigation.” We knew the menu was limited but the website provided it and it lived up to its reputation. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable and our meals outstanding. The next day at my meeting I highly recommended it to 3 “locals.” Looking forward to going again on our next return from Iowa.
Food and cocktails were both delicious. Both could use a little simplification. Overall a good experience.
The staff made our special occasion that much better with their lovely service and attention to detail, even sending over some sparkling wine on the house. Each course was phenomenal and beautifully played. Excellent sturgeon, perfectly prepared. And the lemon pot de creme was creamy and tart with the perfect amount of sweetness.
Fabulous service, attentive yet not overwhelming. Amazing food with unusual, yet spot on flavors. Always a special place and always a favorite.
Our dinner was exceptional, as always. Clare was very knowledgeable and gave a thorough menu tour which helped us decide on what to order. When everything sounds so good on the menu, it’s helpful when the server can nudge you in the right direction. The pasta with rabbit sausage and porcini mushrooms was my absolute favorite!
This is the second dinner in a row where we were not able the dinner that we had ordered. The food came out in a very untimely manner and we had to,d the waitress and had specified on the reservation that we would be attending a play after our dinner.
We have loved dining at Restaurant Alma but have been so disappointed our last two meals. We can no longer recommend the restaurant. The food is good and the wait staff is wonderful the dinners seem to be held up by the kitchen staff
Phenomenal food. One of the finest restaurants in America. Great wine list as well. Highly recommended
Wonderful food with unique combinations and beautifully presented!
The service was so timely, not too quick not too slow. The server was very helpful and knowledgable about the food as well as the wine. The food was absolutely delicious! Among the three of us, we tried many various dishes and all were spectacular! I completely understand why this restaurant has been around for so many years and has the following that it does!!
Really good restaurant but way too pricy. Great wines and dessert. Know that you're check will be over $200 for two people.
Incredible! The 3 course meal with the wine pairing is excellent. It is definitely a memorable and amazing meal. And the desserts were fantastic as well.
A truly wonderful experience. Thank you for a delightful dining experience.
Amazing night! The environment, food and staff were incredibly! I highly recommend!!
We come here every year in my wife’s birthday. I proposed here in her birthday so it’s always a double celebration. The food is beyond words and the service is incredibly attentive. Can’t wait to start celebrating our anniversary here as well
Restaurant Alma never fails to deliver. Consistently delicious food that is creative and offers variety. Impeccable service and willingness on the part of Chefs and staff to accommodate special food needs/allergies.
Outstanding food and good service and atmosphere - worthy of JB award.
Outstanding food. Impeccable service.
Thank you Alex Roberts and staff for making a memorable night—and for your wonderful support for Youth Farm!
Still the same great food and service, but the new layout of the kitchen and lack of ventilation had us in a cloud of smoke and grease smell most of the night. Everything we wore went to the dry cleaners today. An open kitchen is great, but not at the expense of overpowering diners with smoke/grease fumes.
Wine paring was well worth it
I recently had the PLEASURE of dining at Alma for the Restaurant Week 3-course Tasting Menu. Each course blew us away with its exemplary complex flavors and impressively delivered simplicity. HIGHLY recommend the fried cauliflower, lamb burger and hot chocolate as well as many of the handcrafted cocktails. I will definitely be back!
We were seated in the upper level on Friday 2/23 and discovered that they have a problem with the ventilation in the kitchen. Towards the end of our meal, the air became thick with kitchen smoke/odor. Our waitress told us they were trying to fix the issue. I don't know why they would seat us there if they knew of the issue. Don't allow them to seat you in the upper level or you will leave smelling like you worked a full shift searing meat, your eyes will be watering and you'll develop a cough from the smoke. Ruined our experience and it was very disappointing.
The food was good. Not great. Not into large portions. ...but... Portions quite small. Overpriced.
The food and service was excellent. I won $500 in Alma gift cards at an event. Our very good friends were celebrating their anniversary. We decided that this would be a great way to use the cards and have a very nice dinner celebration. We did the wine pairing with the meal and had dessert. I had coffee, my husband milk, and the other couple shared a glass of wine. Our meal and tip came to over $600. I guess it was nice to see how the elite dine but I just can't see spending that kind of money on a meal. If you can afford that, Kudos to you! You will enjoy this restaurant.
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.
