We think our waitress was rolling on Molly. Their deconstructed key lime pie was made with moon food.

This is my new favorite restaurant. The service was the absolute BEST from our awesome server to the manager and the entire staff. So many restaurants are understaffed and just trying to stay open. I’ll come back to any restaurant that has phenomenal service and food. We even left my grand daughters teething ring and the manager called my cell phone within 5 minutes of leaving. I’ll be coming here a lot! Thank you Alma Cocina!

The pork shank taco was off the chain. The amitatan margarita was exceptional as always as were the churros.
Can’t wait to go back to our favorite upscale Mexican/ Latin American eatery.

The guac and sauce tasting was perfect for our group of four. Everyone was happy with their food, including the shrimp, chicken mole and steak. The restaurant is comfortable and attractive, and quiet enough for conversation. Our server knew the menu, was efficient and personable without being intrusive. Prices are a bit too high for this to be a regular eating hole, but for every once in a while dining, it is excellent.

We had a delicious dinner at Cocina Buckhead. The Pork Cheek taco was tasty, and so was the Steel Head Trout and Grilled Octopus. We plan going back weekly

They do have an outside patio for dining. Menu is not huge but what is there is good. Tasty drink selection and don’t skip the churros for dessert.

Upscale creative Mexican food and cocktails. Nice Spanish wine list. Service was a bit sporadic but the manager ended up helping out in the lulls. Try it—food is good.

I was excited to try this restaurant based on previous reviews but was kinda disappointed. The food was bland. I ordered the Mole and did not like it, they were nice enough to take it back and take my new order for tacos, however, when I got the tacos it wasn’t the kind I ordered. I took it anyway and the chicken was also bland. Everything just tasted “mushy”. I did order the octopus as an appetizer and it would have been great if not over cooked. The ambiance is great but the food just did not deliver.

I love their food and drinks, the service was great. It's also a good place for people with celiac/gluten allergies - much of what is on the menu is gluten free, and they often have a gluten free fryer.
