A West L.A. Spot in Sandy Springs!
This place is just awesome. Fantastic food and very reasonable prices. Impressive selection of beer, wine, tequila, etc. But what separates Moderna from any other place in the area is the decor. I am from Los Angeles, and this is a little hotspot in LA right here in Sandy Springs. No joke. The unbelievable lighting bathes the booths and tables, and changes color as you dine. The booths are a little raised up so you can get a great view of the restaurant/club while dining. They have salsa dancing lessons, fantastic DJ's.

Great Service and Food
We went to Moderna on Wednesday, May 29, 2013 as we were celebrating my cousin's birthday. I made my reservation through Opentable and within 2 hours, the restaurant texted me to confirm the party size and my preference (high table vs regular) They also texted me thirty minutes before my reservation time to tell me my table was ready- very nice touch. Dinner was delicious: Definitely try the Queso Gringo with chorizo. My husband loved the brisket tacos. Great environment for a dinner party. Complimentary dessert for birthdays (and cool candle) Love Moderna and I highly recommend it.

My husband and I live a few blocks from this place. The food in our area is pretty tame. You have to either go to Downtown Roswell or Buckhead (and South) to get a true "Foodie Meal". So when Moderna showed, we were pretty excited. The first night there we ordered tacos (amazing brisket) and the tamarind margarita (what a great flavor combination!). We also went there with our 7 month old daughter and they helped us accommodate her. The second time I went I ordered the carnitas and was BLOWN AWAY. Best I've ever had. Third time I ordered tacos again- wish I had opted for the carnitas. It's a trendy place, so if you're looking for a quiet meal, sit outside.
Can't wait for trip number 4!

Moderna Great Find
I took my girl friend here Saturday night for her birthday and had a great time. We had a large party and we were able to get a private booth for a very inexpensive price. The service was great and the manager Josh was very helpful. The manager really made sure that my girlfriend's birthday dinner party was supplied with anything we needed.

I have enjoyed Moderna on several occasions in the past few months and have had a pleasant experience each time. The food is good, the service is pleasant and timely, and the atmosphere is relaxed. I will return. If you're in the area, give it a shot! If you live in the neighborhood, you're likely to meet some neighbors.

Mexican Food that stands out among
Some say that Mexican food is all alike. I CHALLENGE those people to go to Moderna and then say that. I don't think that one can make a mistake on the menu. It is very reasonably priced for what you get too. I suggest the shrimp taco and the brisket taco, but you can't go wrong. If you need some help ordering just ask your waitress. they are always very helpful. Save room for dessert too.

Wonderful all Around
I have dined at Moderna several times now and all have been great experiences. The modern decor is a nice change from other restaurants in the area. The food is always fresh and very tasty. The margaritas are excellent at Moderna! The staff is attentive and friendly. Happy to have found an awesome new place to get great food/drinks/service!

Great food and service
first time diner - service was very attentive (admittedly it was not busy), and food and drinks were excellent. Everything is made fresh and you can tell the difference. Menu for food and drinks is extensive, so plenty to choose from. A real hit in the area.

Food is fine, drinks are great!
The food is just okay. Nothing special; I could make food just as tasty with some ease at home. We had the chips and guacamole, the Moderna salad, and three tacos each (brisket, PFC, Japones, and pollo frito), then the tres leches cake for dessert. The drinks are the reason to visit this place, though. For the sake of comparison, the food menu is three pages long, but the drink menu comprises seven. I think we'd stop there for dessert and drinks after dinner elsewhere, as we're pretty serious about our food!

Just found this restaurant
Just found this restaurant and we love it. Have been there twice in one week.

Wow! Great food & staff
Found this unexpected treasure via open table. Staff is super friendly; food is tasty and affordable. But Ryan at the bar is the real fond - he knows everything about every wine or liquor you could imagine plus he makes his own mixers out of organic ingredients. Try it - it's a great value!

Tacos were GREAT!
Need to redo menus. First two selections are no longer choices.

thanks for the awesome service!
I took my boyfriend to Moderna for his birthday dinner. The staff was very friendly and even brought out his birthday cake with candles. (And they sang "Happy Birthday"!)
