When Alma first opened, I was a regular. Not anymore. The last time I ate there, we ordered guacamole and chips as an app. Twenty minutes later, the server informed us that the kitchen was out of avocado. As an entree, I ordered a rice and shrimp dish served with a spicy tomato sauce. The shrimp were mixed into the dish but had not been de-veined and still had the tails attached. I had to rummage through the dish, find the shrimp, de-vein them, and remove the tails myself. I was disgusted. My dinner guest complained that her food was bland and unappetizing. I believe she had a veggie enchilada. I'll never go back.

The view is spectacular, just like the guacamole! The service is quick and the food is good too, depending on what you choose. We had fajitas and a very spicy pork dish. If you go there at night, you have to aks for a table on the patio, open all year long.

I went here with 2 friends on a Friday night. One friend was still not present when we asked to be seated. When I explained to the hostess that our friend was late coming from Queens, she said she would do her best to the keep the table next to ours empty so she could seat our friend when she arrived. Try getting a polite and considerate answer like that elsewhere in Brooklyn! The view was awesome and I loved my dish (poblano con queso fresco) and frozen margherita. My friends loved their meat dishes. I already know what I'm eating when I visit them next weekend!

I had dinner this week at Alma Restaurant. My friends and I waited for a short while for a table on the roof terrace and I'm glad we did! The views were spectacular. I ordered a cucumber margarita which was delicious. My friends had a frozen pomegranate margarita and a mango margarita which they also liked. I recommend the chilaquiles for an appetizer. Cheesy, spicy goodness. My entree was the rellano which was with Gouda cheese and short ribs. Unique and flavorful. Our server was friendly and attentive, if a little slow. But that seemed to be because she was busy. Overall we had a great time and enjoyed the experience. I already recommended to friends.

I called to arrange a party for a Thursday night in August. The person I spoke to was very friendly and quoted me a price. I asked if I could call back the following day to book and he told me yes, call and ask for one of the owners. I called the following day and was greeted with attitude and a new price quote that was doubled. I was willing to pay a little more, but doubling the price and speaking down to a loyal customer was too much. I have used this restaurant for business dinners in the past, but will no longer do so. There are plenty of restaurants in Brooklyn who have a more orgnaized management and treat their customers with respect.
