    Felt like this was the Atlanta model of street food Mexico the Netflix movie. Great precursor to my trip to Mexico. The staff was helpful and attentive but not overly so. Made recommendations. Definitely going back again especially to try the infused ice cubes- the one I wanted was sold out. Love all the plants.

    I have had MANY dinners at Alma Buckhead, and while service has always been somewhat slow, the food always compensated. However, this last visit, was awful, so im going to sadly say, DONT go: The food tasted great, but not worth an hour wait for appetizer and drinks. The servers tried, but really, what can they do with no bar drinks or food?! This is not the kind of place where you can stuff your face with chips and salsa while you wait, so overall, not worth the visit, save your time, money, and patience.

    Average on most counts. Appetizers were good. Chicken entree dry and overcooked, almost as if had been cooked earlier and reheated.

    This place never disappoints. The food was amazing like the last two times I have been there. The waitress was simply pleasant and made the best amaretto sour I have tasted and the restaurant as a whole is a place I will continue to visit.

    The overall experience at Alma was great. Our server was really nice and informative. She answered all of our questions thoroughly. The drinks were good and reasonably priced. We had a reservation and even though we were a little late it wasn’t a problem getting our table. It was surprisingly not that busy for a Friday night. The food was good, the only downside was that it wasn’t very filling. I got 3 tacos with a side of beans and rice, plus an appetizer and I still could’ve eaten more when I was done. For the price I paid I could’ve gotten more food. It was a good experience but I’m not sure I would go again. They have a pretty decent sized menu but at the same time it doesn’t have much on it.

    Food is good and for the ambiance and location, price felt reasonable. One picky thing was that waitress did not come often enough. I don't like when the waiter comes by too often but it was hard to get water refilled. But it did not deter too much from the overall experience.

    As always, our experience was fantastic. Our server was friendly and wonderful. The only thing I didn’t love was the music playing…it was like alternative rock n’ roll - and for that type of music, seemed a little loud. That’s just being nitpicky - we will definitely be back. Our tacos were wonderful!

    The atmosphere and energy is inviting, yet elegant. The food is exceptionally good, but the cocktails, specifically the margaritas, are the key difference maker here.

    The fish Veracruz main course [Salmon on this visit] was outstanding. The skin was seared to a perfect point and the olives and jalapeno all worked very well together. I did not leave anything on my plate! Service by Lane was exquisite [and entertaining] as always. The music was perfect and the overall ambiance soothing in an otherwise busy Buckhead location.
