    Nice waitress, validated valet, live music but not too loud, and great prices. The ceviche was bland and they don't serve cafe con leche, but those are the only negatives.

    Quick and to the point... The food was ok. The service was sub par. Our server got both of our drink orders wrong. My food was correct but the other person I was with got the wrong order. Asked for no tomatoes and it came with tomatoes on it. The atmosphere was good.

    We had eaten at the Dallas, Texas location in November of last year and was pleased to learn there was one in Atlanta. Our niece was here on business and we needed to find a place convenient for her. As much as we enjoyed our experience at Mi Cocina, we live in Lilburn and traffic being what it is in this area, we will not be regular customers.

    This was our first visit and based on the experience we had, we will not be returning. We were seated at a small table next to a large group that was very loud, extremely rude, and most definitely overserved. The service was fine, but the food, with the exception of the mole chicken, was bland and under seasoned.

    It was my first time to Mi Cocina. When I made reservations on Open Table I told them in the comment section that I was celebrating my friends birthday. When I arrived the hostess let me know they offered 2 hours of complementary parking right behind the restaurant, which is so nice when your downtown. When my friend came in a few minutes later the hostess wished her Happy Birthday and then our waiter wished her Happy Birthday as well. She loved it. We ordered and the food was delicious. I had an amazing salad that was cold, crisp and full of goodies, my friends chicken quesadilla had all the fixings and was amazing too. Later the manager came over and wished my friend Happy Birthday and was very kind. Great food and great customer service!

    Unfortunately we ended up sitting next to a huge party, the people in that party were CONSTANTLY walking and their children kept running around, they were bumping into our chairs and everything. I had to hunt our waiter down whenever I needed him. The food wasn't so great (i was kinda bummed since i made this place sound so great) and one of my friends was charged for something she never received. Usually there's live music on Saturday but I didn't here anything. The second time was not a charm. I'll wait awhile before I go back. IF I go back

    The ambiance was very nice and the music was not to loud, as well as the waitress was very nice and friendly, but our food was not hot at all, the entrees that my guest ordered should have came out on a skillet sizzling but it didn't and the vegetable (onions and bell peppers) was so big, it seems as though they was prepared without care. The manager took my chicken back to warm it up, which I told him that was alright, but he did anyway.

    I truly love the place. Their hot sauce is awesome and the food is really good. Service is always friendly and great. Took my wife here for the first time for dinner and she even loved the place and wants to come back. Reminds us of the great places in the DFW area that we would visit often when we lived there.

    Before last visit, I had been twice and had great experiences. However, this last visit topped it all. From the attentive service (server was Eric- incredible), to food (guacamole amazing as are entrees), to the margaritas. We even had the manager checking on us throughout leisurely meal (amazing day- relaxed on patio) and made us feel as if restaurant was truly run well and the customers made a priority. We had to ask Eric, our server, to send manager out to rave on his impeccable service and the overall experience. Definitely a great addition to the neighborhood.

    Everything about the restaurant was wonderful. Our waiter was attentive and provided excellent options to try for drinks and food. I enjoyed the Taxi margarita(margarita mixed with sangria) and the #4 meal(enchiladas, taco, rice and beans) which were both delicious. The portions are large and have options so that you may try more than one item. The live band was a nice touch. If you want to be able to see them, ask for a table in the front. I would highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to visiting again.

    We live ax cross the street so this neighborhood gem is easy to choose. The entire xpirience was lout standing. Food, outstanding service etc. but... We wee seated next to where the band was going to play and our entire meal was interrupted with the band setting up. They never played, just bumped our chairs and came past over and over with carts of their equipment. Seat us upstairs then please.

    Although the food and dining service was excellent the hostess was a bit to be desired. We were meeting 2 additional people which we advised the hostess - we weren't sure if they had arrived - at first she couldn't locate our reservation - we waited over 30 minutes for our other guests only to find out that she had seated them 5 minutes before us under my reservation - then seated us at the opposite end of the restaurant. Both parties questioned her as to the arrival of the other and we were told they had not arrived . When we finally telephoned one another and realized we were both there - she just laughed and said "isn't that funny?" No not really -

    The overall experience was a good one. The only thing that annoyed me was that I placed two reservations because I had a larger party and they only had one reservation. They did their best to accommodate my large party. It took longer for them to do so. Other than that everything else was great.

    I ordered the brisket tacos. Unfortunately it was the saltiest brisket I have ever eaten, I also think the kitchen forgot to put the cheese on the tacos. It could have really used some sort of slaw (green apple or even traditional) as a balancer. The guacamole was good though...

    I had just finished a strenuous workout and couldn't decide on what or where to eat, so I went to my Open Table app, find Mi Cocina booked a reservation, jumped in the shower and off we went. Our server, Angelina was very courteous and offered great suggestions to my niece since she had never dined at the restaurant. We sat out on the balcony and the ambience and breeze was very fitting.

    Food was ok, but staff was extremely confused and lacked basic server knowledge. Even the manager was unskilled and did not know the different food items. E.g. Failed to look at the plate of food and only looked at receipt. Thus everyone's order was delivered wrong.
