    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!

    Food was so bland and overcooked. Ambiance terrible. Only good part was our waiter Kiyah. The food was no where near traditional Spanish cuisine.

    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.

    A lovely, architecturally interesting space with a wide variety of seating options. "Special" Margaritas not worth the cost; stick to the original. Tacos we had were different and delicious. Unfortunately the noise level of the unrelenting percusion heavy sound track made visiting with dining companions difficult...the music certainly did not reflect the ethnic Alma of Alma Cocina. Surely with all the attention to decor and food, there could be a little more to the sound scape.

    This was our first time, and a fantastic experience! Some of the dishes are a bit on the spicy side, but all of the food is very flavorful. And a special shout out to the bartenders: my wife's margaritas were incredible - luckily she could lean against the pole next to our table because the drinks were very subtle and absolutely delicious!

    Our only gripe was our own fault. We had reservations for 5 and 3 more people joined our group last minute, which caused us to be bumped outside to the patio on a day when no one wants to eat outdoors in Atlanta. Still, it was frustrating to walk past so many empty tables that could have accommodated our group easily. I'm not sure why that wasn't at least offered as an option. But the food -- wow. Fantastic!

    Food came out very quickly, within 2-3 min, but it wasn’t “hot,” just a little warm. The tortillas fell apart upon picking up. Wasn’t bad,though. I would visit again.

    It's a restaurant with few choices for people who can't ear spicy food. Everything is spicy, especially the salsa verde which they use in every single dish.

    Server wasn’t paying attention to our needs. Did not get credit/points for some odd reason because my husbands gift card was not on my card for fifth group restaurant. We weren’t expecting to get $20 birthday discount, we only wanted to get the points given to us.

    I wanted to go to this restaurant for a long time and have always forget. I decided to go on my birthday (big mistake). -Ambience, decor is nice but a bit dark. -Very limited menu (I failed to check before going there). -Every single item ordered was spicy (except for the grilled carrots). -Menu is not creative, I can find better tacos at a gas station taqueria. -I am sad to say I’ve spent my birthday there. It was not special, food was not good at all. Very basic for the type of restaurant they promote. The only thing memorable was the service, our server was extremely accommodating. I am sorry I forgot her name.

    My wife and I both had the Masa Shrimp tacos. We both thought they were the best tacos that we have ever had. She had a Sangria and I had a Margarita, the drinks were good. The service was very good also. We will definitely be back.
