The waiter was so knowledgeable about the menu and very pleasant. The entire experience was one I would love to have every single time
My boyfriend and I went out for a casual date night and wanted to try something new. We were in the mood for Mexican, and saw alma Cocina had strong reviews. So we decided to try it out.. we were taken great care of the moment we walked in, and Jess was very knowledgeable about the menu and made some great recommendations. We both had a margarita and both were good, but I liked my boyfriend’s spicy “just wear black” margarita better than the Amatitan that I had.
As far as food goes- we tried all of the first bites and the salsa/guacamole tasting. Our favorites out of the first bites were the pork belly, shrimp, and shishito peppers. All of the guacamole’s and salsas were good as well, they were all different and a nice little spin on more traditional flavors. Our main dishes were crispy cod street tacos and the chicken molé. I enjoyed my tacos and ended up eating them a day later for leftovers. My boyfriend enjoyed the different flavor of the molé, and it was his first time trying it... it is an acquired taste and quite heavy. All in all, we had a good experience but probably will stick to the more traditional “hole in the wall” Mexican spots.
Had a great time
Our server was fantastic! The roasted pineapple guacamole was my all time favorite
The food was fabulous and Alex, or server was amazing!
Outstanding food and service!
Customer service was fantastic. Staff remembered that we had
Fantastic take on the Mexican food concept! Waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful with a touch of humor! Plan to eat there again soon!
Great food! Was in town for one night with a friend and found this next to our hotel. Had plantains, fried avocado tacos, and 2 desserts. All was excellent. Service was good as well.
Delicious and inventive menu of small plates, entrees and drinks that had us excited to find another chance to eat here.
Every item on the menu is always on point..I have never had a bad experience at Alma. The service is always exceptional. If I could I would eat the Hominy burger every day. Best guacamole in the city and don't forget to ask for the plantain chips for your guac.
Great food! Server was very knowledgeable of menu and his recommendations based on what I was craving were spot on. In Atlanta? Do not miss out on this one
Food was great. I had a lot of restrictions because of allergies but they were very patient and accommodating. Will definitely be back again
Nick, because of your exceptional service I would return to Alma Cocina. You surprised me when you took care of my meal issue. A do over is on my calendar.
What made my dining experience exceptional? Nick! His service, attentiveness, timeliness and knowledge of the menu items and ability to communicate effectively is what everyone hope to have when dining out.
The food? I will have to try again. My friend enjoyed her tacos and plantains.
Worth acknowledging? Parking attached to building/restaurant, and Alma Cocina provides validation. Too easy.
This is an outstanding restaurant. The food is delicious and the service is attentive. It was my favorite restaurant during a trip distinguished by good food.
Jerry was amazing! Great recommendations for all of our food! Ha a table of 9 and loved it!
Place is attractive. Servers are well-trained, and meet diners at customer comfort levels. The carnita tacos are incredibly delicious. The Chile Relleno was good, but dry. Forgot to serve us the Esquites, but were very apologetic. Great magauritas! Overall, I’d return!!
Had a chance to catch up with two girlfriends. Our meal was OVER THE TOP yummy. Our server, Haki (sp?) was amazing by giving us time to catch up, but also checking in on our food coursing. The esquiites is what I’d like to call “crack corn”. It’s so delish. The empanadas are so good. I think they are the same ones that I saw on Beat Bobby Flay with a different filling. Will def be back.
Great Ambiance, Great Food & Drinks! Definitely visiting again!
The atmosphere and food was amazing. The waiter was exceptional. Definitely will go back.
One of my favorite restaurants. The chicken mole’ dinner is fabulous. The fried cheese in a lava bowl with bubbling salsa verde is a showstopper!
Great spot for a business lunch - food was very authentic and service was great!
Whether appetizer, small-plate, or entree, the flavors offered are complex always wanting for more. I would like to see Mole dish more integrated.
My boyfriend and I met at this restaurant almost 4 years ago and got to celebrate our 1 year anniversary last night. The food was delicious and the service was 10/10 even after we arrived late. It felt so special to be back, and everyone at the restaurant truly went out of their way to accommodate us. Thank to everyone and especially Janel for taking care of us!
Maybe, not a great fan of modern Mexican food, was looking forward to the authentic experience.
Always awesome, wonderful chefs and wonderful servers.
Very nice place for an office lunch. Attentive services.
Our waiter Will was awesome and the food was great!
Literally the best taco I’ve ever had IN MY LIFE. The chicken al carbon taco was life changing. It is served deconstructed as one big piece of chicken and all the sides and you create the taco yourself fajita style and it is marinated perfectly and I can’t stop thinking about it goodbye
Dinner only. Bar area use to be very attentive but waiting a bit and person sitting next to me was a little upset at the wait.
My group really enjoyed our dinner at Alma Cocina. Great food & drinks!
I’ve been to Alma Cocina several times after Atlanta United games. I love the small plate offerings, as well as main dishes. Cocktail and wine selections are also very good. This visit, my daughter and I enjoyed a fabulous dinner including scallop ceviche, shrimp tacos, and seafood soup (we were all-seafood this visit). All were delicious! Service was excellent too!
The atmosphere was lovely and it’s a very pretty restaurant. I took my parents there for Mother’s Day and we tried the chicken mole and the stuffed poblano pepper dishes. The mole was DELICIOUS. I’m very picky about my mole but this was so very tasty and the chicken was nice and tender. The poblano peppers were also delicious, however I felt there was just a little something lacking in the balance of the flavors of the dish - it had a little too much “acid” and not enough salt and fat so it was falling just a bit flat on the palate. Over all it was very enjoyable - I just tend to have great expectations for the balance of flavors. The churros were not nice and crispy as well and they came out a little soft. The taste was very nice for those however. I would still go back!
food was very heavy and large portions but delicious. Margaritas were too sweet and made from pre-mix - dont recommend
The food was good place was clean area was nice employee's were friendly. Took my girl there for her birthday and they gave her this beautiful and tasty dessert on the house. Definitely will go back shouts out to Alma Cocina
Delicious Southern/Latin fusion. The pork belly First Bite is delicious and the Carnitas were off the chain!
Selection of food was nice and items ordered were quite good. Excellent service from the staff. A bit noisy, but small group discussion was possible. All-in-all a wonderful find for an out-of-state food experience. Thank you!
Great service, manager was excellent when we had a parking issue and made the night awesome!!
Excellent food. Loved the guacamole ensemble (3 types of guac and 3 types of sauces). Chicken mole was wonderful and tacos were very tasty. Wait person was very informative. Loved the place. Wish I lived in Atlanta so I could return often.
Festive, lovely place to celebrate any occasion, especially 5 del Mayo!
