The Zagat Review
Reopened after an extensive remodel, this “upscale” Marcy-Holmes “favorite” from “imaginative” locavore wiz Alex Roberts showcases “transcendent” New American dishes via seasonal prix fixe menus “beautifully paired” with “under-the-radar wines” and creative cocktails; an “excellent” team presides over the stylish, Scandinavian-inspired setting that’s suitable “for a special occasion" , complete with the option to stay overnight in boutique hotel rooms upstairs.

The food here is amazing, but be prepared to spend some money. There is not much for parking that is available, it's all street parking - although valet is available to those who want it. The menu has choices for each of your 3 courses. So you can mix and match to suit your own likes. All of the food (and cocktails for that matter) are either somewhat exotic or have an exotic twist to them. This is no place to dine safely. Here you must dine outside your comfort zone, be adventurous! You won't be disappointed everything is delicious. You have the opportunity to add a wine pairing to each course. If you can afford it, I recommend it! The wines are all excellent and pair well with the food. Due to the cost, I will not be going back for a while, but for a special night out you can't do much better. Recommended.

I went to brunch at the Alma in February 2018 and had a great experience. My date and I shared the lamb burger and baked strata which were both amazing. The lamb burger was absolutely amazing, but will come out as medium to medium rare, so if you like it more well-done you’ll need to ask them for that. The strata was also amazing, it’s similar to quiche. The service was excellent, they even split the dish for us to share. If you’re in the mood for drinks, the carrot mimosa is a unique tasty drink.

Very enjoyable evening with our friends at Cafe Alma. Same great food and service we have received from James Beard winning Chef, Alex Roberts' staff in the past as it is now. Cafe Alma differs from Restaurant Alma in that it is more casual (you can order off the menu as you desire) instead of a prix fixe dining experience. Either way, you won't be disappointed. We've gone there occasionally since 1998 and it's always been worth every penny spent!
