Very clean and cozy Mexican theme restaurant not far from the Barclay Center in Brooklyn. Menu is not the usual Mexican fare although there are tacos on it The food is original and is fresh and excellent. There is also a nice selection of Mezcals to choose from.
I was disappointed in the overall experience. The restaurant was too small, too crowded, not a peaceful experience. Also the portions were too small, we do not plan on going there again.
5 stars for everything about this place. Will be back soon!
Alta Calidad is such a perfect dining experience. It's cozy but not cramped, it's well designed, and the food makes you feel like you're on an episode of chef's table.
Delicious food and attentive service!
I had a great time at Alta Calidad except for being allergic to my shrimp tacos :/ I asked the waitress to let the kitchen know about my allergy, and I am sure she did, but alas, my allergen was still included. The oversight lead me to not being able to finish my meal and I got very sick that night. BUT, the customer service was amazing.
The manager (I believe) apologized profusely and took my meal AND WINE(?) off of the tab. I was very surprised at how much they took this allergy seriously. The food was very yummy (I tried some of my friend's food, too!) I would definitely go there. It's a bit expensive for my taste but I thought I'd treat myself.
This is a place where the quality of food and staff attentiveness is always consistent and very good. The dishes are made with the basic Mexican flavour but with a much higher quality and variety. My husband and I have been there several times and we always leave very satisfied and happy. Great neighborhood restaurant!
Loved the atmosphere at Alta Calidad! Highly recommend the steak tacos and the guac is AMAZING!
Food was very good - but portions were tiny. I was wondering if we were the only ones who thought so, but other reviews say the same.
Loved the ambiance in this tiny but packed gem of a restaurant! Volume was just right for feeling lively but still good for conversation. Cocktails were delicious, and tapas were tasty and shareable.
I went to Alta Calidad for my birthday with a small group of friends and it was perfect. The food and drinks were fantastic, the service friendly, the atmosphere festive but intimate. Must gets include the queso fundido "simple", octopus with pork belly and potatoes, and the Mexican Coca-Cola lamb ribs. Really excellent and special!
Amazing meal, great service.
the flavors are good, the portions on the small side. Best to order lots of dishes & share
Great brunch special. Margaritas were delicious! Not watered down like some places do for unlimited drinks during brunch. Food was delicious!
Excellent experience. The staff was attentive and friendly. Food was very good. Great place to bring in the new year.
Terrific meal and service, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience.
We had such a wonderful time here - The food was incredible and staff was extremely friendly. Great, relaxing atmosphere. Thanks for everything!
Good food in a cozy setting well run - perfect dining spot
The food was amazing! One of the best meals I’ve had in the City!
The food is really good & the mimosas are great. I love the brunch special.
we ordered 3 margaritas, all of which had sugar instead of salt. After checking with server he said yes definitely should be salt but instead of making 3 new ones, he asked if we wanted to have it remade and 2 of our guests said no since they did not want it wasted but we shouldn't have paid for them. Or just remake us new ones instead of putting the responsibility on us.
The lamb ribs and scallops were both fantastic. I've been dreaming of the ribs since my visit!
My friends and I enjoyed our time here. Overall, a very pleasant experience. I would return.
Great food and high quality service. Definitely try the steak tacos!
Great food, good vibe.
Always perfectly on point!
Four of us went to Alta Calidad for a friends birthday. We loved everything we ordered, food and drinks.
Service was great! I will return.
Great place with really cool creative menu options
This was a very sweet discovery. The server we had was amazing she was just the right amount of attentive and pleasant. Would recommend this place for cuisine Méxican food and for ambiance. We came here for a late lunch and had a nice quiet atmosphere.
Great service, delicious food, highly recommend for a really good dinner with friends. I would say this might not be the best special occasion restaurant. It’s a pretty space but there’s nothing sexy about it.
Great Saturday night venue!
This place is quickly becoming our neighborhood favorite. Great menu, consistent specials, tons of great Mezcals and a great staff. We like sitting at the bar, we've had 3 different bartenders, all three were great, and the waitstaff is good about jumping in to help when the bartender is busy making drinks (a common pitfall in any restaurant with only one bartender).
Unusual, tasty Mexican food, well prepared. good service
I came to Alta Calidad as a recommendation from a friend. I had high hopes already since this friend always recommends great places but Alta Calidad exceeded those expectations. I easily made reservations the day before for a dinner date with my boyfriend before a theater show at BAM. We were seated promptly and everything else from there was wonderful. We liked our waiter, the ambiance of the restaurant, and the food was amazing. Please get the Octopus - so freaking good! Will be back! Thank you!
The food was delicious just wish the portions were a little bigger as the food was so good!
Host was great our server was ok, overall would recommend.
Thoroughly on-point in every regard.
This is one of my favorite spots in the neighborhood. The food is always on point, and the drinks are great!
Our first visit, and we were impressed. Excellent flavors, very creative and well executed modern Mexican. A lively and inviting atmosphere and very attentive service.
The menu was much bigger than I thought. Honestly, I wanted to try basically the whole menu so I will be back. Had the pumpkin quesadilla which was delicious. Definitely recommend.
We dined early, so it was lovely and quiet. Our bartender/server was just excellent. Friendly, attentive, and she REALLY knew her food - her descriptions of the specials were detailed and enthusiastic. The house white was very good, which is not my usual experience with house wines. We had a great evening.
