Our experience was quite nice. We were the only table at 6pm and we picked 2 snacks, 2 small and 1 large plate. We ordered the pomelo salad which unfortunately had something hard inside the salad. We can’t figure out what it was, the chef came out to apologize and gave us an extra plate complimentary as well as she didn’t charge us for the salad. The food was nice, although it was a bit smaller than I thought. Overall I appreciate the chef coming to talk to us and also providing us with an extra plate. It was very nice of her

Alma was incredible. Excellent food with informative and warm service to match. I'd definitely reccomend eating here, and I'll be returning for their fascinating interpretation of Chinese/Canadian/Indian food.

Small, comfortable room with a relaxed ambiance.
Unusual dishes with Italian, Asian and French influences.
Some missteps:
slight over salting in pomelo salad;
pork a bit chewy.
But mostly toothsome results this evening.
Dessert a standout:
chrysanthemum ice cream on marzipan.
Smooth and friendly service.
Will be back.

A beautifully crafted menu that highlights the professional and personal experiences of Chef Anna Chen. The service was also excellent...attentive and friendly. Unique, fresh and exquisitely executed Alma provides an accessible fine dining experience that I would recommend to anyone. I look forward to coming back to the see the menu show case a new season of flavours. Thank you!

The food was delicious, but a little bit too pricey for what it was. It was a cold night outside, but they need to improve their curtain situation by the door - there were very cold drafts blowing into the restaurant.

Really enjoyed our meal here. Dining out while doing the 'dry January' thing can sometimes be awkward but the staff happily recommended nice teas. Service was exceptional, and the food was really nice, especially the roasted beets and chicken fried rice in lotus leaves. Looking forward to going back in the spring.

Simple but varied ingredients combined to create layered flavours. There is no wrong choice on the menu. Service was excellent and the ambiance perfect for date night.

Excellent, except that if it is cold outside, sitting up front is chilly. Needs to upgrade its curtains.

Wonderful food and ambiance at a surprisingly affordable price. We grazed on a series of small plates during two and a half hours of intimate conversation. Everything was good but I particularly recommend the flatbread, the rapini dip, and the sweet potatoes.

We had an incredible meal at Alma. We tried 6 dishes between the two of us and everything was spot on. I'm still dreaming about the flatbread. Everything is really fresh and seasonal. Plus, they have a great selection of wines and digestifs.

Our new favourite restaurant in the neighbourhood! The service is outstanding and the food is even better. Wish the glasses of wine were a bit more generous, but that would be my only complaint.

Food was great but had a limited selection of vegetarian options. They had top 40 playing in the restaurant and felt odd eating my high end dinner listening to Justin Beiber.

We sampled the food like a tasting menu. All the starters were just divine, especially the hot crispy flatbread and the cheese dip. The small dishes and large dishes are cooked with both precision and care. Look forward to coming again. Chef Anne is amazing.

I found Alma on line for a group birthday dinner. I can’t say we are easy to feed with different dietary concerns but we all enjoyed the food and atmosphere. We felt we found a new gem in an under appreciated neighbourhood. I hope they do well because the care and love comes through in all the dishes. All were shared between us so we all got to taste everything that was ordered.

Had the bread, rapini dip, salami, cabbage dumplings, beef skewers, zucchini gnocchi & chicken lotus leaf rice.

All amazing and well balanced. Good wine list and everything is priced very reasonable.

Love they serve burdock beers supplied from next door
