Alta is a pretty nice tapas place. The atmosphere and decor will not fail to impress. I wanted to try the whole shebang option, but I don't think we had the numbers for that. Either way, we selected pretty good dishes. Was definitely a fan of the paella, roasted pork belly, and salmon tartare. The other items were not bad... More

We went to Alta last night with a group of friends and we had a fabulous experience. The drinks are great, the food is awesome and the service is exceptional. Cal is the one who looked after us and in spite of this being a Saturday night, he ensured that our food showed up on time and drinks were flowing.... More

Started off in the bar for happy hour. Good value with two small plates for $8 (had the fried goats cheese and bacon wrapped dates & olives) and selection of wines for $8 a glass. We had dinner in the top level with excellent service from Jeremy. As one of hour party was vegan we mainly had vegetarian options. We... More

Unlike many restaurants where the great ambience is confined to the main dining room Alta preserves this ambience on each floor. When we were shepherded upstairs each level was intimate and lively. The service was outstanding and the food was terrific.

Alta remains one of my most favorite restaurants in the city. Tucked in a townhouse in the village, it appears as if out of nowhere, filled with a plethora of smells and tastes that compliment one another in a very sophisticated way. My favorite dish is still the Brussel Sprouts, and, of course, no meal at Alta is complete without... More

You can actually order ALL of the items on the menu. Great food, as with all the Tapas it can get expensive super fast but the drinks ambiance and food is worth a trip. Lots of veggie options. Their grilled mozzarella with piquillo peppers marinara is amazing

Very tucked away location, but one of the most beautiful restaurants i've been to. The food was very good, however it is a tapas restaurant so before you go, just know that the plates are a very small portion. About 20 dollars a plate for the such little food is really pricey, but its perfect for a light dinner. A... More

Nice selection of small plates most of which tasted very good (though a bit on the saucy side). However our waiter was not only very slow but also not knowledgable about the food on the menu and had no clue about the wine list. He said he would grab the sommelier to help us with the wine, after a 15... More

You can easily walk right by the restaurant - the below street level entrance looks like a bar rather than a restaurant - but walk to the back and you will be impressed with the layout of the restaurant and the food. Ever dish we had was very good and designed to share. The wine list complements the food. Our... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
