Loca Luna Ratings and Reviews
The food was great and the prices are good. The portions are small (tapas). The restaurant was freezing. A couple left due to how cold it was. The waiter/service was poor, he did come back to check on us (large party). We had to practically chase him down. The ambiance is nice with good music.
Ceviche was not the same as the one I’ve had previous times. It lacked the same taste and authenticity.
The paella was delicious and so were the chips and queso dip. The mojitos were awesome.
Food arrived quickly and server was friendly, courteous, and welcoming.
Live band is good but too much Salsa eventually gets old and requires a little mix in the music. We need some bachata and merengue mixed in. The music was not on when we arrived and we playing it was on and off. Not fluid.
Area was freezing cold. Food was not cooked to order (undercooked) chicken was spicy with out notice. Food arrived cold. Cocktail drink was not tasteful. Music was ok need more Spanish variety. Hours for dancing is late. The server was kind. Space was friendly probably nicer in warmer weather.
Very disappointing. I used to eat at this restaurant years ago at its Peachtree Street location and loved it. We decided to try the new location and it looked fun but the food was awful. The octopus was tough as rubber. The steak was tough. The shrimp were mealy. Nothing was good and I'll never go back.
We decided to host my 15 yo's birthday party here. They had an absolute blast. My husband, son, and I ate elsewhere to let them be teens. They finished before we finished our meal. I was a bit stressed that they were just waiting there, but when I arrived, the 8 girls where taking a salsa lesson. What a fun memory for all! And low stress for me!
Food was amazing like always and it came quick. Service on the other hand was terrible. The bartender (a woman) was terribly rude and for no reason at all, just because we wanted a different guy to serve us. Our waitress was slow, didn’t know the menu and wasn’t too friendly . Totally takes away from the experience.
Food is good but overly priced. Even for tapas. The most intriguing item 9n the menu is the paella but it requires 45’ wait! Who wants to wait 45’ for a dish while snacking on overpriced appetizers (tapas).
An even bigger issue is the incredibly high noise level. The music was so loud that it was impossible to talk during the meal, or even hear the waitstaff when ordering. This makes for a lousy experience.
We’re long guests to Loca Luna but something seemed different this time around. The food didn’t have the same quality as before. It’s almost as if the flavor was cut back. The service was excellent and there was a great ambience but the food has changed and we weren’t fully satisfied in that area.
I really enjoyed Loca Luna. The food was very good although I was disappointed in the sangria - tasted like juice with little alcohol. My partner had a margarita which he enjoyed We had the mussels, nachos, spinach and grilled octapus all of which were very good. Even my friend who does not like mussels or octapus liked them. The venue has a nice design and layout - felt very spacious although it was quite busy on Friday night. Out waiter was excellent - very friendly and responsive. It was a good value for the money and I would definitely return. They had a singer and small band there on Friday night and the music was good without being overwhelming. My partner and I could talk without having to shout . Overall an nice experience and it appears to be a popular Friday night hang out. The parking was ample and FREE. The location is somewhat hidden although easy to get to in Midtown.
I chose a great place to start off my 40th birthday celebration weekend! Everything for most of my party was excellent. Ronnie, our server, was awesome! The only thing is that 1 of my guest became ill from the grouper tacos. He got sick immediately and it continued when he got home. We know it was the grouper tacos because he is the only one that ate both of them. My other friend that ordered it took 1 bite and knew something was not right. His exact words were "They smell too fishy". Otherwise, everything else from the salmon, calamari, shrimp & grits, nachos/salsa/queso/guacamole to the beef brisket were excellent!! There were 9 in my party.
I hadn't been to Loca Luna in a while and decided to have my birthday dinner here. The server was friendly and accommodating. The food was quick for the most part. A few dishes were a little slower coming out. Everyone was able to find something they liked. Great band, good drinks good food and a great celebration!!
We really enjoyed our meal at Loca Luna! Everything that we tried was very tasty. Tapas are my favorite, and these did not disappoint! One kind of negative is that we have the Atlanta Pass Book which has discounts for meals at participating restaurants. Loca Luna is in the book, and the page says "buy one entree, get one free." But, there are no entrees on the menu. So really, instead of being a 15-20 value (typical entree cost) it was 5-7 dollars (price of the tapa we got for free.) No big deal though! Still enjoyed very much and will return!!
The live band was amazing. The service and food were out of this world. Drinks were very good. Noise level is high but expected with a live band and music. The dancing was fun....only thing I didn't like is that there is no coat/purse check if you need it because you don't want to hold your purse while dancing or if it's not a cross body.
Disappointing first experience at Loco Luna. Food is good but expensive when you order enough to make a meal. Pallea is mostly rice, little seafood. Wait staff was horrible: items came out of the kitchen sporadically, waiter did not get the correct order, we were charged for items we did not receive. Since we were a group of 7, the tip was included. Lucky for our waiter with dirty hair as I would not have been so generous. Band was fun, they took a break while we were dancing and never returned. Restaurant has great potential, needs a good management team.
The service at Loca Luna is always about a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10, but we really go there for the fun atmosphere, the live music, and the dancing. Sometimes the food is great, sometimes it's just ok. It is noisey so if you're trying to have an intimate convo, this is not the place. But people are having fun, laughing, dancing, etc. So, it's a cool vibe. But watch out... as it get's late (a least on Saturdays) it gets really crowded and turns into a club, but you may like that! This place is an Atlanta staple, so we'll continue to support it.
