Inventive Mexican cuisine & cocktails in a chic setting accented by local art & a rooftop deck.- Google
"Forget the excellent Duck Enchiladas, or the tiny, perfect Al Pastor tacos."
"The shrimp taco is a standout.The house margarita is terrific."

Very tasty. Great ceviche, good duck taco and pastor. Not excellent but good. Great views of the city. I would go back. Sweet potato fries are great!

I've spent many a Friday afternoon here with friends. It was a great little place that was just around the corner from the house. It's an especially nice place during the spring and summer. They have great food and drink prices. The atmosphere is also fantastic. My group of friends and I enjoyed it so much we had a birthday dinner or two there. The staff was always super cool.

Favorite place to go for after work happy hour. Just a hop skip and a jump away from the office and delicious bloody mary's to be had. Food is decent, but on the pricier side. But they do have good happy hour specials.

El Alma has a great rooftop area for dining al fresco. I've ordered their vegetarian enchiladas here before and keep coming back for more. The prices are kind of high and parking limited. Staff were friendly and service was great for it being the lunch hour.

If I could give it no stars. I would. Extremely poor service. Our organization (The League of United Latin American Citizens) decided to go to dinner at a good place. It had good ratings, so we got there and they told us we had wait about an hour for service. So we agreed and waited. Then they told us 30 more minutes. We waited. Then 20 more minutes. So one of our members complained and asked for the manager. To which the manager rudely said, "we have a table for you, take it or leave it because we have someone else waiting." Never again. Rude service, disrespectful manager.

Ok food, decent drinks. Their location and atmosphere are really great, so it's a bummer that the other things aren't spectacular. This is a good location for happy hour.

drinks are great, sangria, chilanga (spicy frozen mango-like margarita), happy hour chicken, beef, shrimp tacos are tasty, comes with good mixtures of cheese, avocado. Also their street corn is tasty. Just a good place to hangout and have drinks w/ good food.

The duck rellenos and the Mexican-Coke pork were absolutely delicious. The best meal we've had in Austin.
