Once again -- Amazing. The first time I went, the food was amazing. So amazing, that I went back the very next day. I was lucky enough to get Jerry as my waiter again, and my GOD is he great. The first time, he performed better than I could have imagined. The second, exceeded my expectations and I think he needs a pay raise personally. Awesome Job Alma Cocina.

For dinner engagement before a downtown event, this was a good location with a very nice take on old foods (tacos) -- a great menu. So that we could all get a chance to taste a variety, the four of us shared 4 different Taco meals of 3 tacos
(pulled pork, chicken, avocado and fish) so that we each got a mix of our favorites. They were very fresh and creative in the ingredients. As we are all seniors, we had no room for desserts but the choices looked good.

Unexpectedly I dined twice at Alma Cocina this past week and it did not disappoint. Just a short walk from the Georgia World Congress Center, their modern American interpretation of Mexican dishes has stood the test of time. Food was as good as I remember from a visit 3 years ago: fresh, flavoursome and attractively presented. Our group of three shared small plates, mains and deserts. Warm ambiance, albeit a little dark and noisy adjacent to the bar. Quieter seating is available near the back and in the portico facing the adjacent Ritz Carlton. Serving staff were welcoming, helpful and efficient. Draft beers available and lip-smacking cocktails, try the Amatitán which is fruity but packs a punch! My latte was underwhelming, but coffee is obviously not their core business.

My overall rating was because of three below average factors for the price paid - Level of service (we had to ask our server multiple times for stuff that we had ordered, seemed very uncoordinated), it was extremely noisy (there was a table next to us where people were drunk and using foul language - loudly) and we were sitting close to the entrance and every time somebody walked in, cold air was blowing in which made it very uncomfortable. It seemed a relatively high end place but I felt it wasn't good overall value for money and we would not go back there again.

the carnitas tacos were very overcooked, very dry and crunchy. We showed the meat pieces to the server and she took them back. The beans (for the table) were very salty and unedible. The shrimp tacos and the pork shank tacos were very good.
Restaurant did credit the 2 carnitas plates and the beans.

We are visiting from NY. Came Friday around 6. Dining in the back was quiet -which was fine. Food was pretty good. Hubby had The mole chicken. I had the pork tacos: great seasoning. Rice and beans were flavorful too. Shared the grilled octopus. Small portion. The single tentacle was puny. The quantity for $15 was disappointing. I’ve had a larger portion at other places for the same cost. Even so the octopus was perfectly cooked and very tender. Would probably come to it again - maybe it would have been more lively with a group or a later time?

Love the food, but the chef doesn't do any exceptions. Honestly, is it so difficult to order two different tacos? Or serve the fried queso at lunch? That was the only disappointment. Other than that, it's awesome.

Food is creative, excellent - no, really excellent - and the staff knows the menu well. Both the taste and the presentation are top notch. The main restaurant is quite loud, but the outdoor seating is perfect for a group that wants to be able to have great conversation and share the delicious eats (yay for round tables).
So many delicious things to recommend...the guacamole and salsa trio is a great first bite to share. Tapas: the scallops, several ceviches, empanadas (such a taste delight!) were all delicious. Main dishes...we enjoyed the roasted chicken mole and the snapper along with a variety of the street tacos (chicken tinga and the cod-we got it grilled) but the fried avocado tacos? Seriously. You must try. The esquites, recommended by our amazing server, is a delicious table-size serving of street corn well well worth the order.
You will not be disappointed with Alma Cocina...if you like food and fun!

Tacos are good but it's disappointing that you can't pick two different tacos. You get two but you can't pick two different tacos. I ordered the avocado tacos but I did not want two of them. I wanted one avocado and one fish. Doesn't make sense. Seriously, why? Two avocado tacos gets boring quick. Please change this "rule". Rules stink, especially when you're paying for food in a nice restaurant.

We were in Atlanta for a convention and decided to give this restaurant a try. Good ambience. Our waitress didn’t explain the menu very well and we were confused about the appetizers that were single bites? She made a huge list of recommendations and left. We looked over the menu and we were so confused? I wish we had looked at their online menu before we went! It would have been much easier! The food we did get was great though and we would go back for sure! Next time no one bite appetizers! Ugh!

Food was really good, but the service ruined the visit. The lady looking after us should not be working in the hospitality industry. She was beyond lousy, not befitting of working with clients at a restaurant. I would like to go back and give it another shot with hopes that management realizes that they should lose the dead weight. The entire city of Atlanta seems to struggle with service quality and needs to recognize the value of going the extra mile and not consistently being so lazy.

My husband and I have VERY specific dietary restrictions, and Alma Cocina was not phased by that! We had a fabulous server, and their margaritas are out of this world. Fresh citrus juice instead of mix makes all the difference! We will be back next time we are in Atlanta. 5 stars!!

I visit Alma Cocina often for business lunches but it would also be good for an evening date. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. I don't typically care for veggie burgers but their mushroom and hominy burger with a side of masa fries is highly recommended. Even the ketchup has a nice kick to it. The house made guacamole is fresh and perfectly blended.
My favorite tortas are the cod and chicken al carbon. I have a difficult time choosing between the two.
