    The service was excellent. Casi was very attentive and simply great! I live in the neighborhood and hopeful that the food will get better, however this visit proved the food is still lacking. The drinks however are excellent !

    Service was excellent. Server was very pleasant and full of energy. We had ceviche as an appetizer…..quite different from other restaurants and that is a good thing. The Shrimp tacos were seasoned just right. Drinks were mixed perfectly. 10 out of 10.

    It was a nice time they kept messing up our orders but was promptly fixed various times. The food and drinks were delicious and the ambiance was great. Valet came to our table to make sure we got checked out without any fees which was thoughtful and great. It was a memorable dinner and we will be back soon!

    This is a wonderful restaurant. Everything from the drinks to the appetizers to the entrees and desert are first class. You must try the ice cream. It’s homemade - and huge - for just $3/scoop. Our server, Jack, was top shelf. He made our dinner fun! Highly recommend!!

    Our visit to Alma Cocina was wonderful! There were tons of options for food and drink to pick from and everything was clearly made fresh to order, even the chips for the salsas! Loved the atmosphere and the server was very friendly and knowledgeable. I'd also say the portions were bigger than I was expecting (for tacos as an entrée), which I was pleasantly surprised with. Looking forward to returning!

    The checks came with errors, which we caught and they were corrected. A service charge was added, but we were not alerted to that fact - poor practice. The food was just so-so, not any better than much cheaper and more authentic Mexican restaurants on Buford Highway. Drinks and beer overpriced.

    This is a unique Mexican restaurant with traditional Mexican dishes [if you are expecting Tex Mex, this is not for you]. The Snapper Veracruz is my current favorite. My wife loves the Empanadas. The traditional guacamole is rich in flavor and a great starter with a drink....or two. Lane is our favorite server delivering world class customer service. Enjoy!

    I wanted A1 sauce. Why can’t you have some A1 sauce for customers who ask for it. I know you are proud of your own sauce’s but I would have come again today to eat at the restaurant if you would have had A1 sauce. Instead I’m going somewhere else. It’s such a simple item to add.

    I’ve been wanting to try this restaurant for so long. I’m happy I finally did. I even took two picky eaters (I’m not), and they enjoyed their meals. The salsa trio with avocado dip is amazing. We got it with their chips and a vegetable platter. Sooooo good. I got the steak dish. My friends got a fish dish and chicken. Everything was tasty and fresh. Nice cocktail menu and great atmosphere.

    Per usual the experience and food was outstanding. I always get the Spanish Octopus so it was a pleasant surprise they enhanced the plate with a range of flavors. I also had the carne asada and passion fruit agua fresca which were also amazing. Jeff our server was great and made it an even more enjoyable experience.

    I had a quite business lunch here and there weren't a lot of people there which I was happy with. The service was prompt and friendly and the server knew the menu which is important for a restaurant of this calibre. Overall, the meal itself was good but the Pastel de Lima was a fine dining Michelin Bib Gourmand or at a minimum James Beard award worthy dessert. I will certainly have it again.
