The crispy pork belly had absolutely no crispness. The empanadas were very good - crispy with a nice filling. The sea bass ceviche was average.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional Management and waiterJohn, the General manager is awesome and extremely customer friendly! Our waiter was also very attentive and did a great job!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!We went for my wife's birthday. I had noted the occasion on my opentable reservation. Not disappointed! The food was amazing and the server was very knowledgeable about the menu. What still makes me dream, though, are the churros and the tres leches coconut cake. The latter was brought out by the server without me even asking. One of the best meals I've ever had in Atlanta.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Authentic Mexian RestaurantExcellent food ans service. Be sure to try the various Margaritas, some of which are very novel and tasty! Great flan; best I ever tasted.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMNice meet upHad friends in from out of town staying at the Westin so chose this nearby spot? They loved the food and the prices for a downtown restaurant. Our server was delightful and really sold us on the food. The white shrimp huaraches were delicious but the fried avocado taco was the best. Also enjoyed the trio of salsas and plantain chips. Will be back!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMJust OutstandingWas in Atlanta for a business trip and picked out this as a place to go due to interesting menu. It is a true gem, outstanding in every way. Nice ambience, supurb service and great food! Know people do not belive everything can be so good so I will mention the only fllaw. Menu print is really small and a bit hard to read, had to ask the super friendly service personel a lot of questions, got me a couple of sauce samples so do not be shy ..... bring you glasses!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceWent to Alma Cocina for my husband's birthday: I had mentioned it on the phone, and at least three staff members wished him happy birthday before we even sat down. Service was swift, warm and helpful with the menu. The food was flavorful, came out quickly and presented beautifully. All in all an excellent experience.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was fabulous!What a treat to find a great Latin American restaurant in Atlanta. I live in So Cal and have dined well in NYC and "Alma Cocina" stands up with the best of them. My husband and I started with the Roasted Corn Guacamole and asked for the chipotle on the side. We could add enough for our enjoyment. A great start to our meal. Then we shared the Carnitas Tacos and the Chicken Mole Huaraches. Both excellent. At the suggestion of our waiter we ordered the Elotes. It's a must have!!
If we could've eaten more, we would have!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMonday Night at the BarMet a good friend for drinks and dinner. Chilean Camanere was exquisite.
Salads were delicious. Roasted avocado heavenly. Fun mixture of flavors and textures.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't pass this up!While visiting Atlanta for a conference, I was tasked with dinner reservations for an important client. I recalled seeing Alma Cocina briefly in a quick search for close-by restaurants. The review could have not been more spot on! The food was clearly "fresh" Mexican with an upscale flare. The menu selections were varied enough to please everyone and the drink selection equally. The service was outstanding! I have already recommended it to other locals.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat gourmet MexicanSaw that they were listed in USAToday's top 10 restuarants in the country - wanted to check it out. Had 2 vegetarians in the group and they had plenty of options.
Apps - tried the salsa trio - the avocado/tomatillo was the best of the three.
Guacamole was very creamy -mild flavor
Vegetarian empanadas were very good
Roasted corn side was very tasty with the garlic aoili basted on it
Avocado Taquitos excellent
Vegetarian platter with the mushroom enchilada-excellent
Wagyu briskett Mole enchiladas very good - pumpkin seed salsa added nice texture
Drinks - can't remember all of the names - blood orange margarita and the margarita with their own sourced tequila both excllent. Sangria was just ok
Overall- worth going!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was excellent!The service was excellent! It was our anniversary and they congratulated us upon arrival and again a few more times.

I highly recommend this restaurant!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI want this place all to myself!!I've been to Alma Cocina twice and have received exceptional service, incredible food, and delectable cocktails each time. It's a bit of a hidden gem, right off of Peachtree Street, downtown. It's a cool, sexy vibe. Everything I've tried had been delicious. I'm super impressed by how awesome this place is. You just can't go wrong. I will continue to dine here. Get a "cube" for dessert, or prior, so you can let it melt down into slush form. :-)3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDependable delish-ous-ness!!This was our second visit to Alma and we invited friends to join us.
