    We’ve come to Alma multiple times since it’s grand opening. Unfortunately the menu has changed somewhat since the last time we were here and there were some food items that I was missing from last time. Also, I’ve been here on busier days and always get excellent service, and the only time that I come on a Sunday and it’s not as busy, we didn’t get the great service that we’re used to. They sat us out on the terrace and the gas heaters kept on going out so we were really cold. Drinks/cocktails are still excellent.

    Everything you ask for they charge you even sour cream which came in a tumbler. Extremely pricey and service was a bit slow. Music was nice and vibrant. Food was good.

    Our first time there celebrating my sister’s birthday. The waiter was friendly and nice. The food it self was ok but nothing special. I feel the restaurant was way over priced. The value for the food and service too high. It doesn’t worth what we paid for. I don’t recommend it and I will not dine there again.

    We took our granddaughter to lunch upstairs at Alma and were so disappointed. The restaurant is crazy expensive, the portions small and the food not very impressive. The menu is quite small so there isn’t a lot to choose from and our female server was downright rude. She was the worst server we have encountered in a long time. Sarcastic nasty, slow and forgot almost everything we asked for. All in all, this will be our one and only visit there. Perhaps downstairs is better but after the horrendous meal and service we had upstairs, we won’t be going back to either place.

    Terrible. Made a reservation they didn’t have any tables. Many of us in line waited 30+ min. Eventually the manager said we can go upstairs and the hostess up there informed us there’s no tables because they had 2 parties of 25 people and couldn’t feed us. We sat at the bar after arguing with them and ultimately, completely contrary to what they said, we got food in 10 minutes AND they never came and sat us at a table. Horrific service and truly embarrassing a restaurant can’t handle reservations

    Second time eating at this restaurant, my first time was 100% better than my second and last . Service was terrible, I was a single dinner and I didn’t get serve any chips , the other tables around me they all had it . Is this because I was a single dinner? Or because the server didn’t care , I worked in the industry and every time I eat out , I’m make sure I tip at least 20% of my bill . Hopefully the management work in this issue.

    This morning was awful. From the moment I walked in. We sat and waited quite a while. When we placed our order it became calling the server every 1 minute. Get me sugar, silverware,etc. Also, the restaurant was missing there breads(concha’s) no breads available. Experience was awful. So, this time around it was not worth the money spent. I should have gone to Cheesecake Factory. Disappointing.

    The Hostess has no idea what she’s doing. I made reservations and had to wait 25 minutes! Then she said reservations have to be seated upstairs and I later found out the menu is different from the downstairs menu. In fact it was more costly to be seated upstairs. As a customer, you have a choice and not directed and forced to pay more. The hostess was super disappointing- the person who greets and welcomes you should be definitely more than professional and courteous. Won’t be going back.

    Food as always was very good. Service was ok. Could have been a little better. We could not get our water refilled. Live music was good- just a little loud for conversation. It is a lovely setting. You could be anywhere in the world- you don’t know that you are at the Grove when sitting upstairs.

    I hate leaving a negative review but this place is so aggressively overpriced that I think it’s warranted. The ambience is fantastic. It’s a gorgeous space. That’s where the positives ended on my recent visit. The food is extremely expensive but not very good. Other high end Mexican restaurants like Javier’s can pull off these prices because the food is awesome and the service is efficient. That was not the case here. The service felt half-hearted and not befitting the prices. Food was surprisingly bland for Mexican food. We ordered enchiladas. Very meh. I devour Mexican food but left half of my plate untouched. (Portions are huge which would be a plus if the food was better.) Maybe we ordered the wrong items but everything else seemed to be in the $40-50 range and up. Just too expensive for what you get. We went to dinner and a movie at The Grove and were so bummed we hadn’t gone to Javier’s in Century City instead.

    Love this place! Highly recommend getting a table upstairs if you can during the live music. Weve gone 2x on a Saturday evening and both times there was a band. The drinks are a bit pricey but overall this place is awesome. The shared fajitas are our fav for date night and more than enough food for 2 people

    Terrible attitude at reception. We had a reservation from open table at 7. After waiting 45 minutes and complaining, we were told they were very busy and our reservation was not a reservation but a request. We were asked to expect a further 30 minute delay. After complaining yo the manager, we were seated. We were then surprised to see 1/3 of the restaurant empty. The rest of the experience was good but the attitude at reception ruined the night

    Our party of 5 had to wait 45 minutes with a reservation. We would have waited even longer but we decided to take a table for 4 when it was offered. There were other guests with reservations who had to wait as well. Once we were seated we were ignored for quite a while. No one stopped by to fill water glasses etc. Our server who was working several large parties made it to our table after 15 minutes or so to take drink and appetizer orders. We had another lengthy wait for our drinks and apps - then appetizers came out well before our drinks. On a positive note the entrees came out in relatively fast compared to the drinks and appetizers. For the most part everyone enjoyed their entrees. I had the Pescado a La Veracruzana - and it was delicious. My friends had carnitas, Chile relleno and enchiladas. The only complaint was the tepid temperature of some of the dishes when they arrived. Our server was great, but clearly he had to work too many tables - he also didn’t have good support from the numerous bussers. The ambiance is nice, but very loud. There was live music - and the duo was really good - but when they first started playing they were competing with loud overhead music. We mentioned it to our waiter who had the overhead music turned off and everyone was able to enjoy. I was really looking forward to dining at Alma but was disappointed with my first experience. With that said the food was really good and our server was great when he was able to get to us. I’ll go back but not for at least 6 mos. Hopefully by that time management can get the staffing levels up, support staff trained properly and figure out their reservations, etc. Until then I’ll stick to Javier’s in Century City and Cantina Frida in Beverly Hills.

    Had reservations via Opentable but the restaurant “didn’t have it in their system!” Waited over 1 hr for a table although we had reservations. First time that’s EVER happened to us. Love the restaurant but they need to fix this glitch. The server told us this has happened a few times already (and this place just recently opened)!

    Hostess were not helpful when asking for a table close to patio. Didn’t offer any other tables that would best serve the costumer. They were cold, short in their response and unprofessional. Server took more than 5 minutes to approach the table, not a standard for a high end restaurant. Drink orders took more than 10 minutes to get to our table. Server didn’t give any other recommendations on wines that were out. Poor service in general. Food was GREAT! Thanks for the chiefs. Not sure if I feel comfortable recommending Alma to friends and family.
