“Loved This Restaurant”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

I recently had lunch with a friend at Alma Cocina. We sat "outside" in the atrium, and the ambience was lovely. Interesting menu, not the same old Mexican food. We shared the salsa & chip sampler, which wasn't to our taste. Too many plantain chips and hardly any corn, and two of the three salsas were almost untouched.
We asked the server for a lighter lunch recommendation, and she told us about the fried avocado taquitas which we both ordered. They were fabulous.
Alma Cocina will remain high on the list of restaurants to return to in Atlanta next visit.

“So nice we went twice!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We were visiting Atlanta with our 2 children, (15 and 8 yrs. old). We wanted a place close to the Westin so we tried Alma Cocina, mostly based on other positive reviews on Tripadvisor, and the fact that it was around the corner from our hotel. We were not disappointed! The food and waitstaff were excellent. We all ordered something different, so we had a taste of each others. Everything was so fresh and full of flavor. We were all picking out the next meal we would order, so it was a unanimous vote to return the next night for dinner. We all ordered completely different meals the next night, and again, everything was delicious. I liked the atmosphere of the restaurant too. I would highly recommend this place for a date or eating with kids.

“Southern Mexican”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Came across from the Ellis hotel not expecting a modern take on Mexican cuisine. Dishes were excellent with just the right heat. Drinks were innovative and tasty. Desserts capped an excellent experience. Highly recommend.
