Latin American
Alma Cocina introduces Atlanta to a refreshing new approach to modern Mexican cuisine. Bright, fresh ingredients and traditional regional influences come together with other Latin American flavors in a variety of vibrant fresh dishes. We also feature the most unique tequila selections and a host of innovative Latin-influenced cocktails beyond a superior margarita.

We are open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week and are positioned perfectly for downtown corporate and social group and private dining.

Alma is operated by Fifth Group Restaurants, owners of Atlanta favorites South City Kitchen Midtown, South City Kitchen Vinings, La Tavola, Ecco, El Taco, Lure and Bold American Events.

Atmosphere was very nice with a well appointed dining room and comfortable seating. The music was too loud, however. For a restaurant of this caliber and cost, there should be less loud, fast-paced music to hurry you along.
That aside, the service was excellent with attentive and knowledgeable staff.
The food was, of course, the highlight of the visit. The guacamole and salsa flight was outstanding. With 3 varieties of each, you could sample some interesting variations on these old favorites.
The tacos were familiar enough to make anyone comfortable trying them, yet with enough of a new twist to make them interesting and not like tacos you've had before. Very tasty and well done.
The pork chop was well seasoned and cooked perfectly, accompanied by a sweet mole sauce and beans, it was just the right size. Well executed and an interesting take on a grilled pork chop. Would highly recommend it for a Latin twist.
Finished up with the churros. Again, they were not like the usual churros you've probably had before, but were also no so different as to make them unfamiliar. Large and fluffy, they are paired with a couple of sauces, chocolate chili and goat milk caramel. Both were excellent and a great way to finish a great meal.

The atmosphere was nice. We are from St. Louis. The drinks were expensive for how much you got. The taste was good but way more high end than I think we thought when we saw Mexican. It is def not their fault...we should have read the menu better. The place was nice. It was in a great location. The staff was helpful and friendly. I think we just thought it was going to be something else. No fault of the restaurant itself.

I wouldn’t return for the food. I wouldn’t return for the service. And, unfortunately, a great margarita isn’t enough to bring me back.
Out waitress didn’t know we had arrived. We waited a while and finally had to ask the host if anyone was coming. We ordered the salsa trio; She brought us guacamole instead. We ordered several small plates. The waitress said she would stagger them. Instead we had a table full of small plates all at once. Superica is just a much better similar option.

One of my favorite places in Atlanta. I had the chicken al carbon sandwich and there was lots more bread than chicken. The sandwich was wonderful as was the bread but too much empty bread - particularly for the price.

Just okay. The food was quite good, but the expectations we had set were not met. I think it might be a bit overpriced, but not terrible for a downtown restaurant. Service was not super friendly, but not terribly rude either. Overall, it was largely forgettable. Good, but not an immediate return trip.
