Chef Brad Kilgore took his previous fine-dining experience and channeled it into the delicious, refined American cuisine you’ll find at Wynwood’s Alter. The stark, modern design complements the progressive menu, featuring the Kilgore’s much-raved-about soft egg with sea scallop espuma, chive, truffle pearls and Gruyère, as well as the slow-braised brisket, served with parsley-cream corn. First-time diners will benefit from Alter’s prix-fixe menu of five ($79) or seven courses ($95). While voracious eaters will want to splurge on the full chef’s experience, where $165 gets you nearly every single gourmet ingredient and add-on on the menu—from truffles to caviar to uni.

I ate at Alter during Art Basel. I contacted the restaurant a month before the date of dining to ask if they did substitutions for pescatarian diet, and they did. I saw on the website leading to Art Basel that there would be a special menu. I emailed the restaurant two weeks before the reservation to ask what that menu would be then again a week before since there was no response. Upon arriving to the restaurant, I saw it was the exact same menu as listed prior to the Art Basel special menu announcement but it was $95 for the 5 course rather than $75. When I brought this up to the waiter, he said the price had always been $95 for the menu, clearly lying to us. After much deliberation, we decided to stay at the restaurant. I asked for the vegetarian menu, and the waiter said there was not a printed version of the menu available, so he recited the entire menu. During the meal, a table near us requested a printed version of the vegetarian menu and their waiter was able to provide it! The service overall was okay. Our waiter himself was not good at all. Furthermore, upon receiving the check we were charged $8 for a bottle of water that was never placed on our table. It would be one thing if they filled our glasses and let us complete the rest of the bottle, but they took it away! Absolutely outrageous. Will not be recommending this restaurant -- they're trying to rip you off. Finally, there is an included 18% tip. I thought this was included in the fixed price of the menu, but no!! It's additional. The menu did not make it clear it was an additionally gratuity. Made sense why the service was so poor...
