Never Again – I had a Groupon-type voucher for this restaurant so I was excited about trying it out. Week #1 (Saturday) there was a private party, so no tables for the public until after 9 PM. Week #2 (Saturday) I called in advance and was told they were booked, so not even taking reservations. Week #3 (Sunday) I called and was told even though they had table available they suggested I make a reservation. However, the reservation had to be made for more than 1 hour from the current time. ??? When we got there a security guard asked to see our IDs. When we went inside, evidently there was a live music performance. A genre of music I am unfamiliar with (was NOT Latin) was playing at an INCREDIBLY LOUD level. I had to literally scream to the host for him to hear me. My boyfriend and I had to text each other for the entire meal because we could not hear each other from across the table. A small conciliation: the food was pretty good. WILL NOT GO BACK. EVER.
LOVE LOVE LOVE – HAD MY FIRST DATE WITH MY NOW HUSBAND HERE
USE TO GO TO THE OLD LOCATION SO HAPPY YOU MOVED AND DID NOT CLOSE!
delicious tapas – great place to meet the girls for a fun night out.
cool looking, not good food – This place is definitely style over substance, went to a function there and it's definitely neat looking, ut the food was not very good.
Horrible – I never write reviews, I am the one that always reads them and usually decides to visit off the reviews of others who experienced it.
I decided to go after buying a coupon from groupon. I went on a Saturday night and I was prepared to wait just because it was Saturday. While I waited I ordered a drink from the bar and the drink was warm. I should of realized then that I was in for a surprise. Once we were called to be seated, I was extremely excited because the overall feel of the place was great; the had the live band and dancing.
I ordered the Spanish style ribs, fried green beans, seafood bisque and nachos. I was very disappointed because the food was cold, queso cheese doesn't taste good when it's cold. I called our waiter over and explained that the food was cold. He was a little aggravated because I insisted that he bring us hot food. He took the food back to the kitchen only to return with the same food he took from us. Guess what? the food was still cold. I am sorry to complain, but I went to Rare soul food tapas and might I say that was a very awesome place.....my food was hot !!!! I guess I was comparing Loca Luna to Rare.
After the waiter brought me out the same food he took to the kitchen to nook; by then I've had enough. I got upset and me and my guest decided to leave. The manager asked me why was I upset, I explained that the only thing that should be cold is the drinks and salad, not the main course! This was my first time visiting this restaurant and it left a very bad impression....needless to say that I will never ever go to Loca Luna's again.
I will also make sure I contact groupon to inform them of this horrible experience that I had at this restaurant. Maybe it is just me and going on a busy night, I can say I don't think that I would ever go back.
I should add that we left there and went to another restaurant and had a blast with hot food and cold drinks!!!
Loca Luna really needs to step it up and learn to serve hot food and cold drinks!!!
Bias Reviews... – UPDATE: This review was removed because it was telling the truth.
The following users definetly either work for loca luna, are really good friends with the owners or as very often it is they are getting free stuff at the place.
Just look when each review was posted..all on 3/9/11 or 3/10/11
way to obvious.
Definetly start reading the reviews from 3/7/11 and older....they are the true views of REAL clients and also REAL experiences at Loca Luna. Dont be fooled.
Take it from a person that has experienced the place..it is not what it is hyped to be.
My favorite place in Atl – Whenever I'm in Atlanta THIS is the first place I visit. Love the food, love the vibe and always have a blast here. I'm very loyal to my dishes my favorite being the tapas-all tapas, mojitos, caipirinhas, platanos etc. After eating, you can burn it all up on the dance floor.
Can't wait to go back and try the new menu items.
Great Place! – Hands down a 5 star spot! My friends and I have been going to Loca for years and have never had bad service. The food and drinks are great! I was recently there for the Falcons playoff game and was seated right where I wanted to be and had excellent service. The food was great as always too! I can't say enough good things about Loca. Always our first choice when we go out. Keep up the good work guys!
