The food was delicious. From the 3 different guacamole samples, to the octopus, to the amazing tres leches Alma Cocina is a total gastronomic experience. Even the drinks were exactly right, the margarita with fresh juice was not too sweet but had some zest. I will return!

My husband and I were there to celebrate his birthday. We had wonderful time. Our server Nick was knowledgeable about the menu and offered suggestions. One major fact was that he was attentive, while not being intrusive. It made for a great dinner. I would recommend Alma Cocina to all our friends and look forward to dining there again.

Waiter was excellent! Recommended calamari street tacos and an “in season” peach guacamole with homemade chips to die for. We also ordered a skirt steak dish, but waiter allowed us to cancel after seeing how much food we had in the first 2 plates. Will Caine back again. Make sure you have reservations because the place fills up fast!

The seasonal menu is has amazing selections. I fell in love with the food after a quiet dinner there one night while on business and went back four more times that week. All my meals were terrific. Flavors are fresh and delicious, with fun new twists, such as the fresh corn tamale with black truffle. Service was exceptional. They can get you in and out quickly, if need be. I definitely recommend it!

Told us it would be a 20 minute wait when we arrived because their credit card systems were down. Apparently they couldn’t manually process payments? 20 minutes turned into an hour and the worst part is no one could tell you when you would be seated. It’s a shame because the food was excellent.

Great food. Great service. Main entrees are a bit overpriced considering there are no substitutions allowed. They have such a knowledgeable bar staff, I am surprised they don't have a better cocktail menu. Would definitely come again and would definitely recommend.

Four of us at the table all agree Alma Cucina gets an all out five tonight. Maybe is was our server Ashely who set the tone and started and ended the meal upbeat, unflappable , and really into showing us good service. We followed a few of her recommendations and each serving was better than the previous one. The four of us did share some items like the Guacamole Salsa sampler. We also shared different tacos and each food item was hot, tasty and devious. We all agreed that the pork tocos needed less salt or maybe the kitchen slipped but the pork was still delicious. We have been here numerous times when we work in ATL and we always have good food at Alma but tonight the kitchen outdid itself.

Was rushed to order BC THE KITCHEN CLOSED AT 11 however my reservation was at 1015. This is no way to treat a guest and rush if YOU the establishment are accepting reservations this late. Forcing someone to order and act annoyed because we arrived at the reservation time will not make me want to return. In no way is this a great service piece from both FOH & BOH
