Diner Reviews
  • "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 always enjoy visiting Mi Cocina. They have just recently changed the menu, but it wasn't changed in a way that disturbed our usual experience. My favorites are the Tacos Mi Tierre, Brisket Tacos, Fajitas and they have wonderful frozen drinks."

  • "Food was not hot; average service and there was not a lot of people dining. This was a Friday night at 8:30 and tables were not full. Margaritas were good. The chips were also stale. WE had to wait 25 minutes for a plate they messed up on."

  • "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..."

  • "We arrived 20 mins prior to our reservation and were seated promptly. We chose to dine outside. Service was good but the good was not the best. For the price paid I would expect a lot more"

  • "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."

  • "A beautiful, comfortable bar, quality drinks, tasty food from a varied menu make for a notable dining experience. What the wait staff lacks in experience they compensate in pleasantness and a genuine desire to serve. I will return there, and bring friends. "

  • "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."

  • "I went to this restaurant in Texas and had some apprehensive about the restaurant in GA ... would it be as good as Texas? Wow! it was super good, great service, cool ambiance, great parking and just a perfect meal! The guacomole, the brisket, the salad, the flan, the margherita sangrias ... mmm ... Thank you so much for a great Mothers Day experience !"

  • "I have been to Mi Cocina two weeks in a row and it is a solid mexican restaurant. More upscale that the normal mexican-dive, the downstairs is energetic and the upstairs, great for conversation. The food is good and this place is worth a try. The manager went above and beyond to make our experience on Saturday extra special. "

  • "I had a reservation for 7:30 and my party was seated a 7:50, on Cinco de Mayo. My party ordered dinner immediately upon being seated. At 8:55, food still had not arrived and we left. A bowl of guacamole sat on our table for 35 minutes but we had no chips with it. Server was polite, but this was my worst experience in 15 years. I cannot call it a dining experience because we never received our food. Avoid this establishment. "

  • "Food is always fresh and good. Arrived to find hostess scrambling for a table for 6 even though restaurant empty and we had reservation. Requested a certain table only to be told it was reserved.....sooo where was our reserved table?? Wandered around like an Easter egg hunt looking for a table. Ended up with 3 different servers in sequence like we were being handed off. All in all a good experience but not sure what was up with the table game we had to play or the server turnover. "

  • "overall disappointed. food was fair to good but the real problem is parking. no valet. took my party 45 minutes to find parking. as a result we will not go back. too much competition out there to put up with parking problems."

  • "Mi Cocina is a welcoming, nice little Mexican restaurant. My family and I visited during their Lunch/Brunch hours. Although I found the food we ordered to be tasty, especially their Posole, it didn't stick out to me from the other numerous of Mexican restaurants to choose from. There is a chance that I may not have ordered their signature dishes, but their fajitas - something I really enjoy - didn't have enough flavor. Next time I will definitely try some of their tacos to see if that tastes better. What I did leave feeling very happy about was the service my family and I were treated with. The staff was very welcoming and attentive during our visit. Looking forward to returning and trying other dishes in hopes of that "wow" factor."

  • "Food and service were very good. The past 2 times dining here, waiter stated he/she was "new" but service was still good. Sampler platter (appetizer) is good enough for a meal and when paired with cerviche, two people can dine on these and be satisfied."

  • "I really enjoyed dining at Mi Cocina. I've been here twice now, once with my boyfriend for a romantic Valentine's dinner and again with my family to celebrate a birthday. I've had pleasant experiences during both visits. If you like seafood, I really recommend getting the Salmon a la Parilla and the Ceviche (don't remember the entire name) -- the shrimp appetizer dish. Also, the Mama chicken dish was quite nice as well. The menu pricing seemed fair, although I think the alcoholic drink menu was a bit overpriced. I also wish there were more dessert options, as I am a big dessert fan. But luckily the location is right across from Café Intermezzo which covered my sweet tooth craving. All I can say is.. I will definitely be dining here again!!"

  • "The place was really nice and they validated parking however, the food was not so great. I love mexican food and it didnt meet my expectations. When my girlfriend said the same thing, that confirmed we will not be back !"

  • "Mi Cocina is in a good location and the food is very good. The problem is the poor service from the moment you enter the restaurant until you leave. If you can ignore the service you will have a fairly good time."

  • "We really enjoyed ourselves at Mi Cocina. The food is every bit as good as the Dallas location, with a slightly more contemporary ambiance. The service was excellent. The brisket tacos and the Mambo Taxi margarita are not to be missed!"

  • "I was very disappointed in the service. I had been here before at lunch without any issues, but we arrived prior to 5pm on Saturday evening and it was after 5:30 before we received our food. The waiter did not come around often enough to refill our water glasses. The bar area was very loud and although we had reservations and arrived early, they originally tried to seat us in the bar. I love the colors and painting on the walls, but will probably not return."

  • "Service was extremely slow... tamales were terrible. We just moved to Atl and this restaurant is around the corner from our apartment... it's in a great location. We finally get around to going and what a waste of time and energy. If your thinking of trying this place, think again.... go to Taqueria del Sol (better service and much better food) PS. The bartenders there need a reality check. My friends who arrived to the bar before we did were treated with such disrespect from the bartender. Completely disregarded them when they sat at the bar. Wouldn't even look at them. Completely unacceptable from a service standpoint."

  • "I had reservations for 8:00 with my guy. We were running late due to finding a parking space. But as soon as we walked in the restraunt,we were greeted And taken to our seats! I was worried we would be made to Wait since weren't on time.but not the case at all. The place was just so soothing and romantic. Its for adults. No so much family oriented with kids and stuff. The food was smaller in quantity than I expected but it Tasted amazing and my drink the limousine was To die for. I will be back!"

  • "I live a block from Mia Cocina and have eaten there several times. The food has always been fine....not great...but fine for a weeknight dinner. Every time there has been a service issue. Once a lost order. Once a forgotten side dish that was brought to the table only after the check had been paid. Saturday night we waited over an hour for our entrees. At one point we told our waiter that we had theatre tickets and needed to hurry things along. Instead of going into the kitchen he stood by our table for another few minutes to chat about the theatre and then went and chatted with another table."
