Love the place!
We arrived and were seated exactly at our reservation times. The restaurant was VERY busy. We had chips/salsa and water within seconds of sitting down. Beyond that, service was very slow. Again, the restaurant was very busy. But, with that said, one should not have to ask three times for cutlery and napkins.
As for the food, it was very tasty. Our order was "correct". However, I ordered the FILET TACOS AL CARBON. I was VERY disappointed with the value of what arrived on my plate. I had two flour tortillas, each with a couple of steak NUGGETS. That was it. No cheese, no lettuce, no anything else. Then a scoop of rice and the sparse trimmings. The plate appeared nearly empty! This in not how this entree has been served in the past. Why has it changed?
Cocina Superior has been a go-to restaurant for my wife and I for a very long time. However, on the last two visits, we have both been very disappointed!
2 of us went to this restaurant on a Sunday night... it was not busy at all. We had a nice server - but: the food took quite a long time to get to us. The superior margarita was ok. The food was not good. Neither my fiance’ nor I could eat more than 1/2 of the plate because the food was so dismal. So sad - I usually love Mexican/tex Mex food.
The food was pretty good.
There was 6 of us, on the patio and enjoying drinks on a beautiful day. Great service and the margs are strong! The food was delicious, we got cheese dip and I ordered the flautas.
Very good food. Fun place
Loved the decor! The food was....eh. The black bean soup was super salty: I passed on it. The enchilada suizas platter was less than stellar. I'd come back for a margarita but not for the food 🙂 The service was okay: it was towards the end of the night on a Saturday. I got a feeling they were trying to hurry me up so I could leave? Maybe it was just me...
Promptly seated for our table of 18. Fernando our waiter did a great job. Food was very good
What is the point making reservations if we will be put on a small dirty table with plastic chairs... Would go to a fast food place
I absolutely love to go to dinner at Cocina Superior. The food and drinks are always excellent, and I appreciate the good service from the waiters.
Great place for good margaritas! Good food and great atmosphere.
Outstanding brunch with our family!!
The table-side guacamole is the best! Margaritas were delicious. The entrees were really good but didn’t meet the bar that had already been set. Our waiter was attentive, engaging, and patient with my elderly father. It’s a bit loud and a bit bright but a very lively and inviting space.
Although we had a reservation we had a 15 minute wait. Other than that the experience was great.
Great food and loved the Ambiance. The only problem was he had no Silverware. We had to ask several times just to get a napkin. Other than that we had a great time loved the Oysters!!!
First time we loved it! Waiter was super,food was fabulous! We will be back!
Great food and drinks! Cool atmosphere and great for groups.
It was good not as fancy as I was expecting but it was good
Overall was Amazing, my wait was not long and was seated as soon as I told the hostess my name for reservation.
service was great and food was delish
Went to Cocina Superior for dinner with some friends. First time and was suitably impressed with both the food choices and attentive service. Simply the best cooked skirt steak I've ever had - highly recommend it. The queso has a great reputation that it lives up to, as does the tableside guacamole. The only critique was the noise level, which was significant - but even that will not stop future visits. 2 people, dinner and an appetizer, no alcohol = $55.
Best fajitas in town!
For a table of 6 service and food was excellent.....
Great upscale Tex-Mex food. Love the chicken tortilla soup, chips and salsa and cheese dip. Not the cheapest place, but food is always good.
Our waitress was amazing. She got our cocktail order in before happy hour ended. The restaurant was very warm inside.. we were all sweating even though it is Jan. & cold out.
Our food was good.... 3 out of our 5 ordered Salmon and it was sold out at 6:20p.m... I thought that was odd.
Grilled oysters always a winner! Add a few pomegranate margaritas and call it a night!
Food and drink were delicious! Enjoyed the fun atmosphere!!
Getting into town and needed a nice meal before putting our girls to bed for a busy day tomorrow. Cocina Superior shows on Open table and has a table available within about a half hour of getting to our hotel. We love Mexican food and their menu jumped off the page because of their modern takes on classic meals. We had a great time, the energy was very positive and food was delicious. Luis, our waiter was very attentive and prompt. The drinks at the table never got below half and my wife ordered a cocktail that she really enjoyed. I would highly recommend it for a lunch or dinner date, party, or a classed up night out with your kids. Great place.
Excellent as always. Consistently great food and margaritas
This restaurant is always reliable. We come frequently and enjoy it.
We had a reservation for 7:15 pm and ended up having to wait about 30 minutes for a table so that was a little frustrating. After that however, everything was mostly great. I ordered a drink and asked for Tito's instead of Rum in the drink but got both in the drink. I didn't like it and the server didn't offer to make it right. I then asked for a different drink because I do not like rum at all and he charged me for both. That was also frustrating. That drink went to waste. The food is always good however and I will go back.
Our waiter didn't write our order down, so there were several mistakes that were seen to quickly enough. The spinach/chicken enchiladas were dry without the spinach on the inside. Staff were very friendly, but not so efficient. I'm not giving server's name because he just might have had a bad shift. Would try again if I lived there, although a little overpriced.
We love Cocina Superior! Great ambiance (especially at Christmas with the palm trees decorated with red lights and garlands and the Lights around the windows and dining room 😮), great service and cuisine! In summer lovely patio!
We had a reservation but had to wait about 20 minutes. The food was average but the service was great.
Solo Birthday dinner with a few drinks that were mixed just right and great customer service.
I sent an email to the location manager, and have not heard back
We were seated very quickly after making the reservations minutes before our arrival. This was pleasing considering it was my first experience using the Open Table app. The atmosphere was nice, a bit noisy but nonetheless an enjoyable experience.
In Birmingham for a couple of days and received Cocina Superior as a recommendation. Great atmosphere with tons of energy.
Make a reservation, because the lines were long for a table.
Margaritas were tasty (but served in a plastic cup...), and food was solid.
I would definitely go back again.
We were sat out in the patio area and it was very cold when we arrived. The heat was not turned on until we asked our waiter and he immediately turned the heat on. Once it warmed up a bit, it was perfect! Recommend turning heat on before you place customers in the patio area.
There for business with 6 people. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Smoked oysters are excellent. I had the Shrimp Brochettes and they were dream worthy. A little noisy but if your party is noisy then you will fit right in. Service if very good and quick.
