What a lovely evening! One of our best dining out experiences. The food was the highlight! Everything was creative and cooked to perfection! Pork belly was incredible! Hubby had the steak which was melting in his mouth... then the brulee for dessert, we finished everything... no faults here!

One of my colleagues at work had told me that both the service and the food were better than a restaurant we had gone to.
So we went with rather high expectations! We were in no way disappointed. The staff at Restaurant on Alma were very friendly and professional and throughout the meal they came by and asked if everything was alright.
I have to say that the food was exceptionally delicious and we could not fault a thing. At the end of the meal a couple of the staff praised First Table saying what a great idea it was. We certainly agree.
We will definitely return to Restaurant on Alma and bring friends with us.

We loved our experience here. Food, service and atmosphere was amazing. My husband and I were out celebrating and this restaurant met every expectation. We recommend the Pork Belly, Chicken grill and the chocolate almond cake.

Delicious food with a good range of choices, we had the surf and turf special and my partner couldn’t stop talking about how good it was! the service was very prompt and our waitress was always there when we needed her. I would definitely rate it as one of the best restaurants in Hamilton. We will be back

I had the Lamb rump, which was an amazing pick, it blew me away! Could do with some more vegetables..
My husband had the salmon which was a bit bland.
The mains took a while to come out and drinks were slow to the table. But our waitress was very lovely. Will be back

Fantastic service and great food I would highly recommend and I can't wait to go back. However I would not order the assorted Breads with dips again. They very nice but the amount of dips doesn't even cover half the amount of bread. Then you are just left with bread and nothing to put on it.

Attractive modern restaurant with mediocre hotel food.
The raw ika entre was not very fresh. All other food was just okay. Lots of room for improvement.
Service was lousy. Need to flag down the waitress if you need something.

We had dinner at Alma and the started with entrees that were very nice, especially the “Ika Mata” with Māori bread. The mains arrived and one of our diners ordered the Hereford Sirloin Steak. It was suppose to be medium rare and was on the rare side which was very disappointing. Dessert was average with the brulee’ having a very hard toffee shell. Average dinner.

Wow! What a wonderful way to spend an evening. We had 3 birthdays being celebrated over the last 10 days and chose to go somewhere different and we were not disappointed. The meals were suburb, steak cooked to perfection, and a mix of meals ordered from the menu- including vegetarian and gluten free. I appreciated that this restaurant provides a healthy choice option.
Sadly no room for dessert. Will definitely be back again. Service was awesome.
Very happy customers, thank you Restaurant on Alma.

Amazing dining experience, we definitely want to come back. The staff were really attentive and friendly, such great service. Our dinner was fantastic! I would recommend the scallops and pork belly, they were cooked perfectly. The panna cotta was yummy, too. Went there with my family to celebrate and left feeling very satisfied. And full. :) Would like to thank the staff again they were all lovely.

We decided to check out Restaurant on Alma for our wedding anniversay. Would highly recommend the pork belly. Staff were attentive, food was excellent. The kids corner is a great idea, it certainly kept my child entertained during the short wait for the food to come out. 10/10

I have booked with other places with First Table and sometimes the attitude of staff towards someone paying 50% off food as compared to someone paying full price is different. But not at this restaurant. We had such a wonderful time. The staff made my wife's birthday so memorable, she touted that dinner as her best birthday dinner ever. Serene environment,
amazing food and impeccable service with a genuine smile. Loved it. Thank you!

We enjoyed our dinner at Restaurant on Alma. The menu wasn’t too large but had great options, the service was attentive and the meal came in good time. The food was delicious and potions were spot on for us. The one downside was signage. Outside the venue there were no signs to the restaurant, just the hotel, and even in the hotel foyer at the entrance to the restaurant there weren’t signs. It made it difficult for someone new to Hamilton.
