    Great service. Delicious food. We went off the recommendation of our waiter and he was right! So delicious. Sit outside upstairs if you can. Great view. Less noise.

    I have been twice in two weeks - no special occasions but felt like royalty. Friendly and attentive service. Great ambience. Latin combo band on Fri/Sat eve added to the beautiful atmosphere. Unusual yet great drinks (tried the Las Palmas, Blood Orange Fresca, Claro Que Si, Playa Blanca -- all great!) Complimentary appetizer is refried beans with 3 different salsas served with tostado shells (very tasty!) Guacamole appetizer is served with pork rinds instead of chips - unusual but still good. The Arrachera (skirt steak) was very flavorful as well as the Pollo en Mole (chicken mole). Served with handmade tortillas (blue and yellow corn). Tres leches dessert (not usualy one of my favorites) was outstanding as well as the Churros de la Casa (this takes longer as it is made to order) with ice cream. Even a week later, my friends/family continue to talk about how great it was. I can see myself becoming a regular here. A bit pricey but worth it!

    We went to Alma as we love their sister restaurant in Cabo Hacienda Cocina y Cantina. The space is beautiful and they had live music. Great atmosphere. After we got sat it took a few minutes to be acknowledged. Our waiter did arrive he welcomed us and took our drink order. Right after the GM, Kevin checked on us and we had a nice chat about why we came and the Cabo connection. He is very on top of things as the GM. Our waiter, Edwin did a great job and had help from Lucy getting us additional drinks. We ordered appetizers then Our dinner. The beef carpaccio was incredible. The carnitas and the skirt steak were up to par. The Manager Eduardo, checked on us a few times. We ended having dessert on his recommendation. It was nice. All in all a great experience only thing missing was the view you get in Cabo!

    Our experience was very pleasant. The kids and I took their dad out for Father’s Day. We shared the beef taquitos and they were exceptionally crunchy and delicious. My blood orange Fresca was truly refreshing. For dinner I had the sea bass, my daughter had tacos, my son had the enmoladas and the celebrant had steak. We were all happy with our choices. For dessert we shared the churros and buñuelos and carajillo. They are were both amazing.

    Food was fine, but very overpriced. Service was ok, a bit inattentive. There were two overcharges on the bill, had to have the accounting revised.

    I have been to the Mexico City location and really enjoyed it, so I expected good stuff at The Grove. The decor is absolutely beautiful and the staff was very kind, yet the place has several kinks to work out and left much to be desired. We were very surprised to find only one Mexican wine available by the glass (you have to order by the bottle to access more options.) It was a Malbec that was smooth but light-bodied and on the sweeter side - more a Pinot noir than any power packed Malbec we had ever had. Alma also didn’t have their Oaxaca hot chocolate available, yet still in the menu, because they haven’t been able to source the right cacao. No Mexican hot chocolate at a Mexican restaurant? Our waiter started off just lovely - very attentive, knowledgeable, and able to give great recommendations. Then he went missing for nearly half an hour once our entrees came out. Thank goodness for the truly marvelous runners who tended to our every need with kindness and respect and so much care. He was apologetic when he finally surfaced again and said he would be “right back” with the dessert menu. Another 20 minutes went by before a new gal came by to ask if we wanted dessert because our waiter had been pulled to work a seating for 20 guests. She said she would be taking care of us for the rest of the night, so we ordered dessert and then 15 minutes went by before our original waiter came back to take our dessert order yet again. We never saw the other gal again. It would then be 35 minutes before our one order of churros to share arrived (which were fine but nothing special)! Our waiter felt terrible and brought over tequila shots on the house, which none of us were up to enjoy at nearly 11pm. The momentum to our meal had long since been interrupted and we were just tired of waiting and ready to go home. By the way, Alma validated parking but not on-site. We had to go to concierge for that at 11pm, which was closed for the night. Great food overall though!

    We ate at the upstairs fine dining restaurant (the downstairs/street level is for on-the-go/small bites. Fabulous new restaurant. The decor, ambiance, service, music and delicious food were all perfect. The food is fresh and inventive. A modern take on Mexican food. Absolutely loved it and will definitely be a regular customer. BTW...the margaritas were fantastic!!!

    You will feel like you're on vacation at this restaurant! Alma just opened and it far exceeded expectations. It has a prime location at The Grove. The decor reminded me of fancy restaurants in Mexico and the indoor/outdoor concept adds to the vibe. The service was impeccable. The 1st floor has the bar and fancy taqueria. I ate on the 2nd floor with an extensive full menu, trust it's hard to choose because everything seemed like it would be good. For starters, I had the Las Palmas cocktail, they had me at beet liquor. My photos show the enmoladas, chicken mole enchiladas and the carnitas wrapped in the banana leaf and all the fixins. I cannot say enough that the entire meal was exquisite! Literally everything was so full if sabor! I had leftovers and it tasted great the next day. I can't wait to go back multiple times and try different things on the menu and hit the 1st floor. Definitely a place for foodies and ambiance, this was a fabulous experience!

    Alma must be the best restaurant at The Grove. Opened recently, we tried the downstairs taqueria which is excellent. However, the upstairs restaurant is open now and what a wonderful experience we had. We started with appetizers, I can’t praise them enough. The main dishes have something for every taste including a vegetarian option which was the chef selection. My favorite drink is Mi Corazón but they have a wonderful selection of drinks with tequila. The service, friendly, professional and very accommodating. Please try this restaurant but make reservations for the upstairs. No reservations for downstairs.
