Great culinary experience Waitstaff very tuned with food and preparation methods. I can highly recommend this restaurant
Alter reliably offers beautifully displayed dishes with complex flavors and texture. The tasting menu has changed, allowing for fantastic new looks and tastes, but the old special dishes, such as the memorable ‘soft egg’ are still available. Our wait staff was attentive, knowledgable, friendly, responsive, and flexible. All in all, a fantastic evening. Our guests from San Francisco lamented that they had to come to Miami to have this great a meal.
Honestly I get tasting menus. But this place was a big rip off. Food portions were ridiculously small for the price you pay. Make your portions a bit bigger and than you can call or dinner
Fantastic cuisine and service!
Amazing vibe, loved the specials!
My favorite restaurant in the US! Staff is always welcoming and knowledgeable, food terrific every time. Highly recommend for a unique, delicious, and unpretentious experience.
Outstanding meal and wine pairings. So happy to find this place.
Disappointing 7 course meal. Grouper and lamb ragout were very good chowder was good. Crude tasty but not unique or memorable. Disliked dessert and maitake (mushroom) dish. Service slow. Hard to u derstand food descriptions. Food artfully presented ted but dishes were more attractive visually than they tasted. A disappointment. Craft cocktail was a hit and miss. Kyu in Wynwood far superior in every regard. Can't recommend I'm afraid. Overrated. Can't compete with other chef dinners like Catbird Seat in Nashville or Campfire in Carlsbad CA
An absolute home-run! I have never had such a fun and delicious tasting menu experience. The service was impeccable and friendly, the food was approachable and amazing, and there was no pretense - i cant stress enough how relaxed and enjoyable the meal was! Will absolutely be returning.
We visited Alter based on a recommendation by a chef. He said if there was only one restaurant he could go to in Miami - Alter would be it. After reading so many positive reviews we booked Alter for our final dinner of our honeymoon trip.
The experience as a whole was the absolute best dining experience we could have imagined. They went above and beyond making us feel special for our honeymoon and the service throughout was impeccable.
Alter offers different tasting menus and we selected the 5 course menu which was incredibly presented and utterly delicious. Our waiter also recommended their signature egg and bread dish which was mind blowing - do yourself a favour and order this dish.
Now this is not an inexpensive restaurant and portions are small. However the flavours of each dish and the presentation and the entire experience are so memorable that it is more than worth the price.
Alter is now our #1 recommendation in Miami. Spoil yourself and give your tastebuds a treat and make a reservation ASAP at Alter
Wonderful place for a celebration. Fun for all! Will go again.
The food quality itself was excellent. The wine was good. However the entire experience was incredibly rushed! We did the seven course tasting menu with wine pairing. The moment we put our fork down and finished one course somebody was taking away the plate and immediately bringing the next one. Same thing with the wine since it was being matched to the course. At one point in time we each had three glasses of wine on the table with different wines because we could not drink them fast enough and keep up with the food pace. Not the kind of experience you would get at other fine dining tasting menu restaurants around the world.
Great service horrible food I’ve been to many chef restaurants and the flavor here was just disgusting
Amazing Food Atmosphere Experience-Mari the server was over and above exceptional and her commitment to making my 20th anniversary dinner outstanding. Mari excellent detail to the ingredients and preparation of the food and the explanation we thoroughly enjoyed.
A truly amazing dining experience. The concept of the chef’s menu adds an element of mystery and adventure to dining at Alter. This renders it unique in a class of cuisine where the food is already deconstructed and bizarre. In the case of Alter, the experience is not grotesque but rather fantastical. I loved the desert, but unfortunately I cannot recall what it was called. A natural fruit sorbet of some sort with passion fruit pearls. The only drawback out of 8 courses served was the grouper. A naturally flaky-textured meat that has a certain sweetness and freshness, was rendered mealy and rubbery by the sous-vide cooking technique— which upon first bite greeted you with a dead fish aroma. I hated it as it piled on insult to injury by being overly salted and drowned in a textureless, incongruent mix of foam and beschamel-like goup. To make up for this was the most perfectly balanced pork belly. Fortunately, this wiped all the bad memories away. Well almost. I would definitely recommend this place and go back once the menu is updated. We ate nearly everything they had with the eight course chefs menu.
Great chef work, a surprise for Miami standards. The wine list can be better.
Pricey dinner, but delicious and surprisingly filling
The food lived up to the hype and service was friendly and excellent!
The plate presentation was on point. The desserts were delicious.
However, the rest was not worth the price.
Outstanding restaurant with very innovative cuisine.
Everything was absolutely phenomenal. We were incredibly impressed and we cannot wait to return. My husband and I said it is our favorite restaurant in Miami.
We ordered Miami Spice. It was extra delicious. The service is outstanding
Pretentious food for chef followers who want to try “innovative” cuisine though dishes do not work. They are palatable, rapidly forgettable and grudgingly portioned.
The food was incredible! went for Miami spice and the menu was definitely affordable.
One of the best meal experiences I've ever had. The food choices are superb and the service is outstanding
Gabriel was our server. Very appreciative to be able to enjoy miami spice in this restaurant, which makes a wonderful dining experience a bargain. Chef Kilgore offers a wide array of textures and flavor combinations. Must try if Caesar salads and steaks no longer make the cut
The food and service was exceptional. Decor was ok, rather rustic and I guess bohemian?
No wonder Alter was named one of the best value at the Miami Spice 2019. This was my second time at Alter and once again the experience was outstanding. The food, the service, the atmosphere everything so well balanced. I just love it. And everyone at the kitchen notice my T-shirt that says. be Happy it is contagious 😉
Went for Miami spice.
Soft egg is a MUST ORDER
It was Miami Spice and met all our expectations
The Rajas and Artic Char are very nice additions to the menu! We had an amazing time thank you!
Beyond expectations good. Chef, service, atmosphere and food are top notch. A++
It was our anniversary and they treated us like king and queen. They left us a handwritten letter congratulating us, did not rush us at any moment (even though we were enjoying the Miami Spice Menu). The food is outstanding. A true culinary experience, similar to the ones you watch on Netflix’s Chef’s Table. The place is low-key, unique and snobby-less (if that’s a word). True to what it’s supposed to stand for. “Industrial American Cuisine”. One of my favorite culinary experiences in Miami hands down. Please take the time to enjoy this restaurant and all it has to offer.
The food was amazing, and the best part is that in The Miami Spice menu has the famous Soft egg on it!
Whoever rated this restaurant with a one star must have just been released from an institution with a onesie or is part of the competition. Alter your plans and head over to Alter restaurant for a fantastic meal. This small dining area has favorable food rich for any palate. I ordered from the Miami spice menu, starting with the soft egg with Sea scallop foam and Gruyere cheese. The lamb belly was tender and tasty sitting above celestial cabbage. The umami butter was finger licking good yet there was plenty of bread to spread it on. The desserts may sound cheesy but the Radish and Cheese, and Humboldt Fog Cheese will connect with your consciousness. Chef Bradley Kilgore is creative and will alter your perspective.
Fantastic food! This is probably some of the finest dining I’ve experienced in a long time. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Outstanding tasting menu for Miami Spice! Each course was creatively prepared and plated. The flavors and quality is excellent!!
Looking forward to returning there very soon!
This was easily one of the best meals my girlfriend and I have ever had out! The experience was absolutely sublime. From the presentation and flair and especially the taste, everything was absolutely perfect. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a special night out! Was truly a unique dining experience. We will absolutely be coming back!
Amazing food and service. Loved everything about it!
