Popular spot for small plates. Went on a Saturday night with a group of 5. We had a 9:15pm reservation but were not seated until 9:30. Restaurant was a bit cramped and very noisy, though that was too be expected. The server was very attentive despite the crowded restaurant. There is a good variety of dishes so everyone in the group was able to find a few dishes they liked. The restaurant was able to add additional items to each dish so if we ordered a plate with 4 bites, they were able to add a 5th bite, making things easier to share. Overall the quality of the food was good, but nothing spectacular. The bill came out to be $70/person including tip and tax for food plus two drinks each...so not bad. Other random thought, the men's room has two urinals but no stall.

Be sure to keep an eye out for Alta or you might be able to walk right by since there isn't any signage. It's on the garden level but once you walk inside, the space is rather large with a second floor that opens up over the main dining area with a fireplace. I sat at the bar with two friends and we ordered two orders of the fried goat cheese appetizers with honey because they were THAT good. Cocktail prices are average, the dinner menu looks great and the decor is awesome.

Exquisite Tapas and an extensive wine list. Sommelier was very helpful; service was awesome. Brussel sprouts, goat cheese, salmon tartare, and octopus are delicious.

This is a fantastic place to go for a more intimate dinner. The main dining room is beautiful and the food is awesome too. Paela is really well done as well as other traditional tapas. Also recommend the sangria.

I came here with a small group of friends for my birthday dinner. What a special place! The food is incredible, and we loved tasting all the unique plates. Great waitstaff and beautiful ambiance to top it off! Only downfall is it's AMEX or cash only - be forewarned.

Mouse in the house! My wife and I were at Alta this evening, and sure enough, we witnessed a little mouse running around on the floor of the upper dining area. The restaurant at the time was not overly crowded, so the little guy was able to roam freely without any problem. Still, we witnessed this from afar, as did a couple at a nearby table visiting New York for the weekend. I called over our server and in a polite and patient voice said, “I don’t want to alarm you, but we saw a mouse in the back of the dining area.” The server stayed calm and said, “Oh, you did? OK.” And she walked away. No apology on behalf of the restaurant, and no real alarm to the information that was just provided to her. In fact, her reaction made it seem like this was common. Really? To add insult to injury, she proceeded to avoid our table for the rest of the evening. Unbelievable. If you want to see mice roaming the floors during dinner, this is your restaurant. Otherwise, please avoid this place.

We pulled up this place on Google Maps by looking for "near," not too expensive and "open now" after a long walk in the Village on Saturday. The place was buzzing, but they had room for the 3 of us, and we WORKED that small plates menu! Highlights: the roasted trumpet mushrooms, the short rib empenadas, and the smoked mozzarella. Cocktails: can recommend their version of a Manhattan (with Port!) and their own sangria (rumor has it the secret ingredient is rum). Save room for dessert...we ordered 2, and a glass of Madeira to split, and cleaned up the wonderful pannacotta and carrot cake. We'll be back.
