Great 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

Didn't even miss whatever was taken out. The vegetarian plate was wonderful. And, the new guacamole with corn and adobo is worth trying to duplicate at home. The restaurant is lively and the friendly service made our diner very enjoyable4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch prices are rather expensive.Lunch prices are rather expensive. $8-$10 for 2 tacos and a little rice and beans. Since when does a 1/4 of salsa and some tortilla chips cost $7! That was the bigger shock. Maybe I'm just cheap.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first time hereThis was my first time here it was fantastic.Our food and drinks right on to the concept.Great prices ,really excellent.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is amazing!

Waiter was very knowledgeable and helped us pick a perfect dinner for this Vegan and her Meatasaurus husband. The service was outstanding. We never waited for anything and management checked on us two or three times to make sure we were happy. Romantic and dark, but not too dark. 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.
