    My wife and I had an exceptional experience. The location was phenomenal. The food was great and the energy, exceptional. HANNAH our server had amazing personal options and suggestions from the menu. LUZE from the kitchen was very considerate with the timing of the food and presented great and tactful service. By far, one of the better experiences, we have had living in Atlanta and look forward to coming back!

    Alma Cocina was absolutely amazing. I went yesterday for the first time for a friend and we were impressed with everything. It was Cinco De Mayo, so I'm not sure if specials will continue past what we had yesterday but we were floored by the entire place. Our waitress was amazing from start to finish and recommended the barbacoa quesadilla and the shrimp tacos. Their drinks are great quality and well-balanced! We also had the Pineapple Xpress shots and they were to die for! I have never had a shot that I thoroughly enjoyed. We had another round because we loved them so much! Alma Cocina is definitely the place to be!

    We enjoy dinig at Alma Cocina. The food is good and the service as well. I got the steak taco and my wife got the shrimp tacos. They were great! Both my wife and I thought that the black beans and the rice sides could have had more flavor. They were somewhat bland.

    What an amazing dining experience. From the moment we walked in until we left, the ambiance was fantastic and the music was at a pleasant level for dinner, not clubbing which was a welcome relief. The staff was knowledgeable about the menu and drinks, their service courteous and professional and the food was delicious! Will definitely be going back.

    Took forever for waiter to take order at lunch and maybe 3 tables in restaurant? Way overpriced for some tacos you can get at 95% of other places in Atl for $5 vs $25! Added some fancy names to a basic taco. My added on chicken to salad was charred burnt. Good luck finding place to park. Paid $20 to self park from 12-1 pm for lint, so to say don’t bother is an understatement.

    Few patrons - but lack of attention from server ruined what could have been a good experience. Food was ok - several dishes needed more acid / salt (guac, salsa) , plantains very sweet, carne asada amazing, octopus excellent- a mixed bag

    Who knew that one could fry an avocado slice and make a super wonderful taco of it?! Tasty, beautifully plated, and with the side of cilantro rice and black beans, a perfect meal. Our server recommended it and she was so right....and she was so good to us. We WILL be back.

    Menu was good, just wished that the buckhead location would have more variety on their dinner menu, perhaps more meat protein base tacos. Ordered a Caesar kale salad but it was only lettuce no kale.

    This is a very beautiful room. It’s unique inviting, and somehow restorative. The food is spicy, but your server can guide you in terms of what you would like if there is a limit for you. The wine list is a little stingy because they are making a point of trying to stick to the regional styles of the restaurant, but the signature cocktails are outstanding. Enjoy !

    I'm not going to say that it was bad, but it's not my favorite place. The waiter was friendly and made good suggestions. To start, we ordered the apple guacamole, which I found to be just average. The cocktail I ordered had too much ice and was not very strong. For the main course, I ordered the steak, which was literally burned on the outside. Overall, it was a very average experience. I think it has a youthful atmosphere, which is not for me.

    Amazing experience. The host was very friendly and sat us immediately after I mentioned I had a reservation. The food was delicious. One of the best meals I’ve had in Atlanta. I was recommended the chihuahua cheese to start and was utterly impressed and surprised at how unique it was. It’s a must!! My main course was the fish tacos…. Again I was not expecting the presentation of it! You won’t leave hungry let’s just say that! We didn’t get to have dessert because of how full we were but the table next to us had it and I know I will try it next time I visit. I will be back for sure.

Don’t miss the apple chamoy guacamole, blistered shishito peppers, sweet fried plantains, and the Big Trouble in Little Oaxaca cocktail. Looking forward to our next meal here!

    This is gourmet fare. The exotic design of the smoked salmon dish could have been in any restaurant on your favorite list. Crisp Tortillas with salsa and guacamole were suggested by our knowledgeable waitress and were fantastic. My companions shared mezcal flights tasting, while I enjoyed the Albariño. The chicken mole had just enough spice to delight. Coming back!
