Went here with friends to celebrate my birthday! I️ loved everything about it! The food was great service was awesome! It was pretty busy but I️ would go back here again. All my friends were commending me on my choice!, they loved it too!
Great food. Great service. Great margaritas. The best Mexican food we have had an Austin. Reasonable prices. Very friendly and attentive service. Prices are totally reasonable
Definitely a hot spot, even on a random Wednesday in February. Food was excellent, service was efficient but impersonal.
Creative interior dishes as variations of more popular dishes--all done with panache and style and seasoned perfectly.
The food and staff at El Alma was outstanding. The only drawback to our dinner was the noise level in the restaurant. We had a 7PM reservation and was seated promptly. We plan to return for brunch soon!
Met friends for a pre-concert nite. El Alma is always consistent with great margaritas and clean food.
We made a special effort to dine at El Alma after being unable to dine due to the previous night’s wait. Aside from the enfrijoladas, which were bland, all menu items were great. Tony was an excellent server. He was friendly and helpful. A blonde female server was not.
Great for a big group. Wide variety of menu options.
Great food and love the people!
Big fan of the apps and drinks. Their specialty margaritas are always amazing! The dinner plates are a little on the expensive side!
Took out of town guest. It was wonderful
Great service. Our waiter Micheal was polite, quick and demonstrated a great attitude. We enjoyed the meal, and the ambiance. I love the fresh taste of your meals, but would prefer a less spicy or hot overall flavor. The bloody Maria, was just the right amount of spice.
OMG! The pork made with Mexican coke and the Ribeye are amazing! so so so good!
Brunch was excellent - the complimentary red and green salsas rivals any top salsa in Austin - outstanding flavor
Our waiter was attentive and very helpful
Weather was cold - looked like a great spot for cocktails on their rooftop patio
We will decide definitely return
El Alma is an Austin favorite. Whether it's for Happy Hour, lunch on the patio or a dinner with friends, I have never been disappointed! The food, drinks, atmosphere, and service are all top notch!
