After having been to 2 other really well known and popular restaurants recently, it was an absolute pleasure to enjoy an unpretentious restaurant with servers who cared about our wants, made us feel welcome and not rushed, enjoyed our banter and questions and fed us great food with great recommendations. We are already booked to return!

Go to this restaurant. The owner used to crank out the cities best pasta at famiglia baldassarre and is now focused on food from her own background. Modern Chinese done without pretense. Innovative and delicious. Thank you Alma for a fantastic experience. Cop that fenugreek dip it's yummy in your tummy guaranteed

Was a nice evening. Everything was full of flavour and portions were just right. Definitely worth a try! It’s not a cocktail spot… selection of alcohol was limited but what they do have is good and goes well with the dishes they serve. We had wine recommended and it was a perfect match.

This was my first visit. When we arrived, it was a full house but the staff were friendly, casual and engaged. This is a good story in our new era and brand of service: we weren’t rushed, dishes arrived and staff made us feel relaxed.

As for the food? Admittedly, some plates were better executed than others but overall, the inventiveness, sophisticated palettes, careful presentation and overall intent of the menu wins out.

A nice crowd, an honest approach to inventive Chinese-inspired cuisine and fair pricing. What’s not to enjoy!

Phenomenal and inventive menu, incredible service, lovely setting and ambiance. My second visit within a few weeks because Alma is one of the most memorable dining experiences I’ve had in a decade living in Toronto. I’ll be back soon to continue eating my way through the menu. :) Top notch overall!

Very good knowledge and enthusiasm about their food. The food was a bit hit and miss. Good effort to be creative. Our main server was excellent, though another member of the team at check out really miffed us when she made us feel they are doing us a favour to change the final bill when we pointed out that there was a mistake of overcharge on the bill. Unprofessional and puts a dent on the fine evening. We want to support a great creative and fusion chef and team, but the value of the mains are particularly wanting.

Two of us selected four dishes to share and all of them were incredible. The service was excellent and both servers had great knowledge of the food and wine menu options and provided great recommendations. They were very sensitive to food allergies, and overall it was a great experience! I would absolutely go back.

The food and service were great, everything we ate was amazing. The scallion bread and comte fritters were a great start to the meal, the soy glazed chicken and pork dumplings are great choices. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the service was top notch. Great wine selection as well. We would recommend going and will be going back.

We have been here twice before and could wait to come a third time to finally try all the dishes. The whole menu is wonderful and the nights fish special was outstanding. The service is fantastic and the attention to detail is something you don’t get everywhere. Wonderful wine selections and interesting unique digestif options. 10/10 Have been recommending to all my friends. Hope to be back soon

An excellent evening. We tried a number of new menu items and they were all great. The "Caesar" salad, fish, and grilled mushroom were outstanding! Happy to see such creative new additions. Delicious new wine options too

Sadly, we were very disappointed with this return to Alma which we had enjoyed before Covid. Food was now mediocre to fair. We tried a lot of dishes. We were there on a Friday, so can't blame it on the day of the week. Service however was very good. Not sure what others loved about the food. Makes you wonder.

The inside of the restaurant has a lovely ambiance. The food is delicious and inventive. Would not recommend sitting outside, as the crowd is a bit sketchy and the atmosphere isn't quite a match for the price of the meal.
