    Kiara, the bartender, was exceptional as our waitperson as well. The manger was so lovely and came to chat with us when she found out we had made our pilgrimage back to eat their amazing food from NY and LA after a long time away from ATL. Happy to report they’re as awesome as ever … Don’t miss the fried chihuahua cheese!

    Enjoyed the experience. I liked the fusion element to the menu - made it more interesting than typical Mexican fare. We loved the salsa trio - we couldn’t pick a favorite. The street tacos were delicious and surprisingly filling. The torta was huge and delicious - it provided a second meal plus a snack. Highly recommend.

    Overall enjoyable experience, clear that staff is well trained but short on hands, drinks were well made with a heavy pour, we enjoyed the Carnitas de lechonicito, roast chicken mole, esquites, Guac and salsa sampler were all outstanding and worth the additional wait with the short staffed service. Would recommend for group out for a good time, now if Atlanta could just clean up the street life in front of the place.

    My server Jay(forgot pronunciation of his name) was very knowledgeable! I do suffer from nut allergies and he was very very cautious with my order, told me what to stay away from and even spoke to the chef. He’s a great addition to the restaurant. Will def be back.

    My wife and four of her friends of 20+ years were able to get together for the first time three years. They traveled from 1-6 hours away to meet prior to the Kenny Chesney concert this weekend. The staff at Alma was extremely accommodating to my request to treat them. The service, drinks and food were top notch. We will definitely return.

    We had been in town for a little under a week and had some fine meals but we should’ve come here first. The food was amazing, everything from the appetizers to main courses to dessert, it was 100% elevated authentic. And Janel, our server was amazing! So detailed in her explanations but also so helpful in her suggestions and was above all kind and warm. . 12/10!!!

    I have waited for so long to try this restaurant and what a disappointment. It was a birthday celebration and we ask to sit out outside, we were told not possible because there was going to be a large party occupying the outside seating, which ended up just being a table of 10 ppl where way more tables were available. Then ordering the cocktails and chips and guacamole trio was good. Ordered a few plates: octopus was so Chewy, the ceviche was so poor in taste and was missing the avocado mousse, the fried fish taco was tasteless, the rice and been ok, the nachos were not tasty. The esquires was good. Did not like the fried I cream and the churros smothered in ice cream instead of being by itself. Unfortunately we will not going back.

    So excited to see the Alma Cocina Downtown location back in action. This is THE spot downtown for amazing food and service. Was glad to get back in for lunch. I started with the guac and salsa tasting featuring seasonal guacs - my favorite was the mango. Great flavor combination. Then, I had the surprisingly amazing mushroom and hominy burger. The best veggie burger in the city and don't even get me started on the masa fries - surely the cure for the common burger and fries. Other faves at our table were the avocado tacos (also vegetarian), the shellfish ceviche and don't sleep on the esquites.

    Alma Cocina was a great dining experience. The food was well seasoned and had filling portion sizes. As the downtown location is in a pretty nice hotel, most of the patrons were seemingly business casual. To my knowledge, there is no dress code. However, if you’re a person that is particular about appropriate dress, you may want to put a little thought into your clothing. The restaurant is perfect for drinks with friends colleagues and/or a date. The service staff was exceptional. They worked as a team to ensure we had water and that all our food needs were fulfilled.

    Have you ever tried butternut squash and fig-jalapeño guacamole before? It was my first time trying these fancy guacamole. The butternut squash is my absolute favorite now, I’ll definitely try to make it myself. The street chicken tacos had a delicious flavor of lemon grass. The only topping lacking on the tacos were onions, I can’t imagine my tacos without onions. Besides that, the rice and beans were well seasoned. I got their most popular cocktail, “Just Wear Black- milagro blanco tequila, agave syrup, hand-squeezed lime juice / spicy rim.” It was a bit too sour for me but went well with my food. I was dying to try their flan, unfortunately, they didn’t have it at the time. I definitely would like to go back for the flan and the Guacamole Trio.

    Delicious! We got the salsa/guac sampler appetizer which was the perfect amount for 4 as well as margaritas! We all got street tacos for dinner which were also small but the perfect size to not be too filling. Food was all fresh and delicious with great service and atmosphere. Will be a staple for all upcoming Atlanta trips in the future.

    Everything was great..... Until it came time to get it bill. Couldn't find out waiter..... So flagged down another who printed out bill. Then we waited 10 minutes for our waiter to pick it up and run my credit card. Slow. Other than that absolutely fantastic dinner.
