We were excited to try something new for Father’s Day. Unfortunately the restaurant is not open. Which we would’ve known so we could’ve made alternate plans.

Dinner was great. Birthday girl got an Old Fashioned late in the evening that was gross looking and kept sucking up what turned out to be cherries. I drink Old Fashions all the time and had never seen one like this. It honestly looked gross—like it had black tar. I asked waiter if that was normal and he said yes. We had to pay for it, but she couldn’t drink it even tho she tried to use the mixing straw bc cherry pieces kept coming through the straw grossing her out. And me...I tried and couldn’t. And I can drink almost anything. Other than the birthday girls drink being gross, it was a good dinner.

We had a wonderful dinner with family. The food was very good and reasonably priced with service that was attentive. The atmosphere is casual, comfortable and very energetic a real Birmingham hot spot.

When we first arrived, we were the only ones in the restaurant. And still it took 40 minutes to get the one cocktail that was ordered and the waitress said she forgot. Since it was a Mexican restaurant I ordered my scrambled egg whites to be spicy, but they didn’t even have salt and pepper on them much less a space. This restaurant has No personality, and no one seems to really care.

For the amount of money they charge for an entre
The device was terrible
Waitress was rude and never once smiled
Sorry if her day sucked but that’s not our fault
Never once were we even asked to refill our drinks or if we even wanted another drink
I guess the restaurant isn’t wanting to make money

I love this place. This is my number one place for mexican food. The drinks are the best in birmingham. The drinks can be pricey but are well worth it.

I love going to Cocina Superior for happy hour. Their drinks are spectacular and a very good value. I wish I could say the same for the food. I’ve never had anything amazing at Cocina. I also think it is very overpriced. Most entree items are over $15 and when the food is just ok, that can be disappointing.
The service is always great and I like the overall feel of the restaurant. I will always go back for happy hour and the drinks, but it seems I will always be disappointed by the mediocre and overpriced food.

Great place to eat. Great food and location. Service was just a little bit slow and we barely saw our waiter but luckily we didn't need much from the waiter or we would have been waiting for a while.
