Loca Luna Ratings and Reviews
I really enjoyed Loca Luna. The food was very good although I was disappointed in the sangria - tasted like juice with little alcohol. My partner had a margarita which he enjoyed We had the mussels, nachos, spinach and grilled octapus all of which were very good. Even my friend who does not like mussels or octapus liked them. The venue has a nice design and layout - felt very spacious although it was quite busy on Friday night. Out waiter was excellent - very friendly and responsive. It was a good value for the money and I would definitely return. They had a singer and small band there on Friday night and the music was good without being overwhelming. My partner and I could talk without having to shout . Overall an nice experience and it appears to be a popular Friday night hang out. The parking was ample and FREE. The location is somewhat hidden although easy to get to in Midtown.
I chose a great place to start off my 40th birthday celebration weekend! Everything for most of my party was excellent. Ronnie, our server, was awesome! The only thing is that 1 of my guest became ill from the grouper tacos. He got sick immediately and it continued when he got home. We know it was the grouper tacos because he is the only one that ate both of them. My other friend that ordered it took 1 bite and knew something was not right. His exact words were "They smell too fishy". Otherwise, everything else from the salmon, calamari, shrimp & grits, nachos/salsa/queso/guacamole to the beef brisket were excellent!! There were 9 in my party.
I hadn't been to Loca Luna in a while and decided to have my birthday dinner here. The server was friendly and accommodating. The food was quick for the most part. A few dishes were a little slower coming out. Everyone was able to find something they liked. Great band, good drinks good food and a great celebration!!
We really enjoyed our meal at Loca Luna! Everything that we tried was very tasty. Tapas are my favorite, and these did not disappoint! One kind of negative is that we have the Atlanta Pass Book which has discounts for meals at participating restaurants. Loca Luna is in the book, and the page says "buy one entree, get one free." But, there are no entrees on the menu. So really, instead of being a 15-20 value (typical entree cost) it was 5-7 dollars (price of the tapa we got for free.) No big deal though! Still enjoyed very much and will return!!
The live band was amazing. The service and food were out of this world. Drinks were very good. Noise level is high but expected with a live band and music. The dancing was fun....only thing I didn't like is that there is no coat/purse check if you need it because you don't want to hold your purse while dancing or if it's not a cross body.
Disappointing first experience at Loco Luna. Food is good but expensive when you order enough to make a meal. Pallea is mostly rice, little seafood. Wait staff was horrible: items came out of the kitchen sporadically, waiter did not get the correct order, we were charged for items we did not receive. Since we were a group of 7, the tip was included. Lucky for our waiter with dirty hair as I would not have been so generous. Band was fun, they took a break while we were dancing and never returned. Restaurant has great potential, needs a good management team.
The service at Loca Luna is always about a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10, but we really go there for the fun atmosphere, the live music, and the dancing. Sometimes the food is great, sometimes it's just ok. It is noisey so if you're trying to have an intimate convo, this is not the place. But people are having fun, laughing, dancing, etc. So, it's a cool vibe. But watch out... as it get's late (a least on Saturdays) it gets really crowded and turns into a club, but you may like that! This place is an Atlanta staple, so we'll continue to support it.
Justin, our server, gave us one of the best experiences I've had there. This was my first "large party" experience and it was awesome! Loca Luna is one of the best restaurants in Atlanta to serve large parties. The food and drink packages were totally worth it! We probably ordered too much food, but the options were sounded so delicious and catered to all palettes that we couldn't help ourselves. Thank you so much for one of the best birthday dinners I've ever had!
There are simple things that I expect when I dine out... A clean table top, clean seating and clean floors. I think it's so dark in the restaurant that they don't bother taking the time to actually clean because they think to themselves that no one will see the dirt and grime anyway! I find it really disgusting to walk on a floor that my shoes stick to. And our table top was equally sticky with visible dried puddles of food/beverages which had clearly been building up there for a while. On top of that the food is just overrated given the high prices for small plates.
I've been to Loca Luna for dinner and dancing and had a great time. However, I don't recommend going during Happy Hour. A friend and I were attending another event at 7pm and met at Loca Luna for early dinner & drinks. We each ordered 2-3 small plates and a cocktail. Both of our tacos were seemed thrown together, the meat was mostly fat. I sent back the salad I ordered because 1)The lettuce was soggy and brown and 2)there was a long strand of hair sitting on top.
I'd been to Loca Luna before and when my daughter wanted Tapas for her birthday I thought we'd take her here.
Being a weeknight I was pleasantly surprised to hear a live band playing, but was also dissapointed when we were sat right in front of them making conversation difficult. The restaurant only had about half the seating space in use that night and the most of the other tables were in use. I asked to get moved to a side table that was just a bit further from the band and was told that they could not seat us there because we had 5 people in our party and the 5th chair would be in the way, only to have a 5 person party sat there 2 minutes later. This was aggravating but before I could complain they moved us to a table in the back of the room where we were able to talk and still listen to the band which was an outstanding trio.
The menu seemed a bit more limited than the last time I was there, but they offered an "all you can eat" promotion which made sense and the food was delicious, though inconsistent.
For example, my wife ordered the calamari and said it was very good so I ordered it myself, but when it came out it was very bland and not like the one my wife had gotten. The jamon serrano on the salad I ordered was just bacon bits which tasted like the ones you buy at Kroger, but other than that everything was delicious. Knowing what to expect now I think I would come back.
Loca Luna is always awesome!! The drinks could have been stronger on this one day (the drinks usually are stronger there..just not Saturday 2/25/17). The music is always cool. The service was beyond amazing!! Our server took great care of our table of five! He gave great recommendations and was extremely attentive!!
I usually dine here on Tuesdays when they have the unlimited tapas, which is usually a great value. I recommend unlimited tapas Tuesdays or unlimited tacos on Thursday, because if you order something that's a miss, and it will happen, you can regroup with something else. I would recommend trying at least once on the right day.
Loca Luna was absolutely amazing. I took my girlfriend here for Valentines, and the atmosphere was phenomenal. I loved the tables with candlelight and right in front of stage for live music. The food was delicious and it didn't cost me an arm and a leg. Definitely coming back!!
Disappointed as soon as we walked in the door. We had to eat out on the converted patio which the hostess insisted was heated, it was not. It was very cold and uncomfortable the whole meal. She told us the tables inside were reserved for a large party. They did not show and we still had to eat out on the patio, eventually they did let the seats go to people who came in after us. The ambiance was okay (it was a little dark hard to see the menu) they did have live music which is a plus. Food is pretty good if you like tapas style dining. Our waiter Justin was the only reason we stayed. He was very observant, very friendly and took care of us that night. If you make a reservation here, make sure you request an inside table if you're dining in the cooler seasons.
