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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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!

We live 40 minutes south of Atlanta and Loca Luna has always been our go-to restaurant when we venture out and even when we have friends in town. We always receive excellent service and the tapas are fabulous! My favorite is the fried plantains! yummy!! The drinks are great too, especially the mojitos!!! You don't find many trendy restaurants that have dancing too. If you plan to stay out a little later, you can also dance at Loca! No need to go find a club after dinner, Loca Luna has it all! My fiance and I just love it! You won't be disappointed!

My husband and I have been eating at Loca Luna for years now (old location and new location) and have never written a review before and figured it was time to do so!

We always have an amazing time at Loca Luna.

First, let me start with the alcohol!
Capriahanas are hands down the best in the city! The mojitos are fantastic as well. The bartenders do NOT disappoint.

Now the food...oh the delicious food. We have a tendency to stick to the usual suspects....tacos, plantains, bravas, ribs....but have tried some of the unique dishes that the Chef creates for fun. They have an amazing and creative kitchen staff.

We love the music and dancing offered in the evening hours. It's definitely a loud, party atmosphere during the late hours....but it's Brazilian inspired...what do you expect?!?!

When we have experienced slight delays in the delivery of ordered items or incorrect items, the management and/or waitstaff have always handled everything promptly with the utmost professional manner. They really care about the customers!!!

Loca Luna is one one the best overall dining experiences in Atlanta hands down! The atmosphere of the restaurant is always alive and vibrant and the service and food are consistently good.

I took my wife there last Saturday night for dinner and drinks and the experience was so on point, I figured it was time to write a review for this place. I was happy to see the menu containing both the staple items that I always order (taco's, ribs, and fried plantains) as well as new items that were unbelievably good (porkbelly skewers and lamb shoulder).

If you are looking for a sexy/swank restaurant in Atlanta with amazing food, service, music, atmosphere, and value, Loca Luna is the spot! It's the best of both worlds - a fine dining experience in a hip and casual setting.

I recently dined at Loca and was so excited to see the return of the Taco Bar (remember the taco bar on the patio at the old location)! It certainly brought back fond memories and a familiar vibe reminiscent of the old spot!

The tacos were de-lish as were my new menu favorite: ALBONDIGAS (veal and mushroom meatballs in a tomato sauce). YUM!!! The porkbelly skewers weren't too shabby either! And of course our usual suspects - spicy potatoes, plantains and sauteed spinach - were as good as always!

Yet another great night at Loca Luna!

My fiance and I chose Loca Luna to have a get together to celebrate our engagement. We have friends and family that live in atl and we no longer live here. We made a reservation two weeks in advance for 20 people. On the day of after our 4 hour drive in I thought it was weird that knowone confirmed our reservation which I had taken with BRIAN THE OWNER. I called and my intuition was right they never saved our reservation. I told the hostess I had drove in that morning for this and was expecting 20 people it was not my fault they did not do their job right! They acted like their owners stupidity was my fault and it was a hassle to fit us in. What kind of customer service is that? Then the manager MARCO called me up and was asking me questions about when I made the reservation and who I spoke with! Calling the customer questioning my validity when your owner made the mistake???? I also mentioned to him that the owner said we could have separate checks (not 20 but about 6 or 7) Brian the owner had said if I had any problems to tell them he said it was ok. Well he didn't even remember to take down my reservation so he didn't remember that "minor detail" either! Marco acted like it was once again a hassle to accomidate us but at this point in the game it was too late to change the location or I definately would have. We hung up and he called me a THIRD time to try to tell me sorry no split checks and your lucky we are accomidating you! I was apauled what kind of a manager says that to a guest who made a legitimate reservation on the phone with the owner two weeks prior!!! At this point I was livid but I was not going to let it ruin my night after agruing he finally agreed to validate what we had been promised two weeks prior. We got there and they tried to squeeze us in a small area that barely comfortably fit 14 we had 4 family members that were saying they would just go somewhere else because of the hassle!!! My fiance went to talk to Marco because it was definately not right they squeezed us in a tight area because they had forgot to put our reservation down and had knowwhere else to put us. There was a table behind us and we asked if we could add it and was told by the manager and our waitress that we could not do that and they had KNOWWHERE in the restaurant to sit the remaining 4 people?! at this point I felt like I was being punked! Was this a joke? I have never received such horrible customer service at a restaurant in my life!!! After a heated discussion and Marco the manager arguing when they were in the wrong and they knew it they added another table but we were still a little squished. Our waitress kaitlin was nice at first then seemed to develop an attitude later on. My fiance and I being servers were planning on bumping her gratuity $20 but after the service we got she quickly lost that. Part of my guests never got their food and got charged for it and had to get it taken off. And I might as well mention the food was not "the best tapas" like they advertise it was not good at all. After all the bad service we all made the best of the situation and the only thing I can say good about loca luna was the DJ was really good and we had a good time dancing. Other than that we will never be back and I would not suggest anyone that plans on having a large party to go and if you like tapas this is not the place to go!!! Horrible management and owner!

I really loved the old loca luna. It was almost perfect except for the parking. The music was great, the women were gorgeous, the food was fulfilling, the people were fun and interesting. Sadly, it seems most of that changed. The music is still great, parking is easy, the food is good, but the people changed it all for me.
It seems loca luna is catering to a rougher kind of crowd. Like most places i guess they had to cut prices or offer some sort of deal, but at what cost to them? Anyone and everyone can get in, there also seems to be no dress code. I did appreciate the selectiveness of the old loca luna. It just doesn't have that same appeal.
The place just seems dangerous and unsavory with the new crowd, but what can you expect when loca luna slashes prices. I'm surprised I didn't get robbed and shot going back to my car. Loca Luna is just the latin version of Club 112.
They should just go back to the way things were. Loca Luna if you see this please bring back the old loca luna so we all can feel safe, happy, and ready to relax and drink!

Went to Loca Luna about two weekends ago and so much has changed..Decided to go to the hosting site for the Saturday event which was called Latin Sol and saw that the event is no longer at Loca Luna. I wonder why because the event was amazing...No wonder the music was not the same. The group I was with also felt the same way! I guess will have to try the other location. food still great though.

Do NOT order the vegetable paella. The rice was ok but the veges were a soggy mess.
Overall the tapas were great, esp. at 1/2 price before 7pm.

I've been to Loca Luna 3 times. The first time I sat on the open air patio with my sister and best friend. We enjoyed our delicious variety of tapas and we had a very attentive waitress. When I realized a meat I ordered was ambitiously rare, she had it cooked longer and all was well. The evening segued naturally from dinner to a club. The music was great and there were some people who actually know some Latin dance around. This lured me into a false sense of security.

The next time I went for birthday party. It's was $20.00 a head for the 4 (more or less) tapas the birthday girl had chosen. There were about 30 of us. When the waiter arrived most of the table was dismayed, because they had recieved poor service from this guy the year before. They tried to shake of that concern, but it was obviously still true. The dude was an inattentive, inhospitable, and incompetent waiter.
As the first platters of food came out the majority of the party did not have plates, silverware, or drinks. Although, it was brought to the waitstaffs attention several times, the first selection was consumed before half of the guests were able to have any. (Also, the portions they brought, were never reflective of their regular portions or how much we paid.) It wasn't until mid-way of the second course that majority of the table had dining utensils or were sharing with a friend. The waiter never took my drink order. I went up to the bar to retrieve my own drink. That's pretty much how the night went. Being squooshed at a table in the middle of the what was turning into a dance floor, with not enough food to eat, and not enough server. Terrible.
We had our car parked by the Valet and it was raining. No one ever came back with our keys after we waited outside for 20 minutes. Eventually, I decided to gallant and trudged out into the rain myself to the valet box. I retrieved our keys. And we left on our own.

The last and final time I went to Loca Luna I went with my sister (who by now had had 2 out of 3 experiences that turned out badly). Once again, the food was great. The two of us were sat in a very busy part of the floor between two parties. We watched sadly as other diners on the next floor enjoyed their quiet place of conversation. One party, while relatively subdued, was large and bumped us and the table everytime they shifted, because our table was stupidly at a diagonal. I moved to another chair to give them more space. The party on the other side of us was already drunk and obnoxious at 6:30pm. We mentioned our discomfort to our waitress, who gave very sympathetic nods, but didn't reseat us.
The Whoo-Girls got progressively louder and pushier shoving into our table. Eventually, they convinced a man to remove his shirt and dance for them, in FULL view of the staff. It was ridiculous. To top things off, as we finished up, a large waterbug/cockroach scuttled around our feet. We held our feet off the floor and waited for our waitress to return. It took a minute. So, we hoped that it would perhaps go to distract itself with the Whoo-Girls.

When we went to talk to management, the response we got was annoying and it was obvious Loca Luna was indifferent about out business. To Crowed Tables: Well, we'll seat you someplace else next time. I don't know why you were sat down there. To the Whoo-Girls: Well, this is a very popular restaurant and it's a party aptmosphere. To the Roach: We have an open air patio. We can't really keep bugs out. Having a couple of bugs in here is the nature of the design of the restaurant. Can you keep them out of the kitchen Loca Luna? Is your restaurant just a place for people to pregame before the party starts?

Really, the music and food is great. Most of the crowd and the staff are terrible. Not worth the trip. I'm sure there is some less desperately-hip place to try.

The Whoo-Girls got progressively louder and pushier shoving into our table. Eventually, they convinced a man to remove his shirt and dance for them, in FULL view of the staff. It was ridiculous. To top things off, as we finished up, a large waterbug/cockroach scuttled around our feet. We held our feet off the floor and waited for our waitress to return. It took a minute. So, we hoped that it would perhaps go to distract itself with the Whoo-Girls.

When we went to talk to management, the response we got was annoying and it was obvious Loca Luna was indifferent about out business. To Crowed Tables: Well, we'll seat you someplace else next time. I don't know why you were sat down there. To the Whoo-Girls: Well, this is a very popular restaurant and it's a party aptmosphere. To the Roach: We have an open air patio. We can't really keep bugs out. Having a couple of bugs in here is the nature of the design of the restaurant. Can you keep them out of the kitchen Loca Luna? Is your restaurant just a place for people to pregame before the party starts?

Really, the music and food is great. Most of the crowd and the staff are terrible. Not worth the trip. I'm sure there is some less desperately-hip place to try.

Pros: Very Good Food!

Cons: Poor management, bad waiters, Whoo-Girls, 2/3 bad visits

.

My fiance and I usually come here if we feel like dancing some merengue, salsa and bachata. So we usually don't make it for the food beforehand, but for the party afterwards. We always have a good time there. It can get really hot and crowded, but it's better than empty!

After my second experience with Loca Luna during which, they changed a promotion after advertising it, I felt I had to share this with the public.

I have a large group of friends and we frequent venues such as Loca Luna often because of their ability to sit large parties on the patio. We were going to visit for a friend's birthday on Cinco de Mayo and after advertising one price, when we got to the door, they were charging double that.

A similar incident happened today. I made reservations last week after seeing an email that said "All you can eat and drink for $25 on Tuesdays." I also confirmed it with their OFFICIAL WEBSITE. When the person at Loca Luna called me to confirm on Sunday, I asked her if the promotion was still in effect and she said, "Most definitely." My reservation was for 7:00 for ten people. At 4:03, someone from the restaurant called to tell me they would not be able to honor the promotion. I pulled up the website and told him that it clearly said on their website that Tuesday nights were "all you can eat and drink for $25." He said he knew that, but they were not honoring it.

Not only that, but the guy was rude and blaming it on "promotions." How is that Promotions fault?

I could understand if it happened once, but it happened the only two times I tried to take advantage of a promotion at Loca Luna and I will NEVER visit the establishment again. Integrity isn't something you dabble in, Loca Luna. And obviously you don't have it.

My girlfriends and I went out for my birthday and this was a perfect place to go with a group.While sitting on the patio, we shared a bunch of different items such as the goat cheese, plantains with coconut milk, ceviche, chicken kabobs, and not to forget the fish tacos. They were all EXCELLENT!! (The fish tacos had fantastic flavors with a great kick!) Our waiter was very helpful and was always there to take our on going orders. Definitely a place to enjoy with friends while taking in the music from the band. We will be going back in the near future! Good job, Loca Luna!!

When they moved, they lost their zip. Food not as good, atmosphere too commercial, and drinks over priced. I love tapas but this place just doesn't get it anymore. Their old location was the first time I had mojitos and tapas and I was hooked. But now, this isn't the place to get them. Sad because it was a great place.

We went there twice, once on Monday and the door said closed on Monday. Went the next Tuesday and it was still closed. It would have been nice to update the notes on the door or the voicemail to read closed.

To date we have never had a dish that we have not loved. We do not go there for the nightlife. We go with friends for the food. I have read many reviews about the nightlife... someday we will have to stick around later in the evening to experience what others are raving about. FAV TAPAS: Fish Tacos, Calamari, Ceviches & Ribs that melt off the bone.

I went to LL on Friday with a group of friends. It was not my first time so I pretty much knew what to expect- average food, decent drinks, good music and tons of people. Well, the music was good and that's about it. The food is still average and so were the drinks. There definitely weren't the same crowds as in the past so it seems as if people are heading elsewhere for their Friday nights.

The worst part of the evening was the service. We had a group of about 10 people. Our server, Donnie, started out fine taking orders and getting us our drinks. That quickly ended, and Donnie was no where to be found. The last time I saw him, he took our water pitcher and disappeared. The water was never brought baack out, plates were never cleared and we were never offered the opportunity to order more drinks. We were there TO DRINK so this was really disappointing. By the time he finally made another appearance my buzz had started to wear off and I figured ordering another drink was pointless.

I guess he figured that since we were a party of ten and he was guaranteed a 20 percent tip, he didn't owe us anything. Well he is the one that lost out because he would have received 20 percent of every extra drink we ordered.

I doubt I will ever go to or recommend loca luna again. There are far too many places in the area where my group of girls and I can go for good food, fun and most importantly SERVICE.

Pros: Live music is good and you can always dance

Cons: Horrible service if you have more than 4 people in your party

I love the music and dancing at Loca Luna.
I also like that you can walk into the outdoor
area and it is not so loud that you cannot
talk. A great place for a night out!

Loca Luna is a very fun tapas restaurant that gets even better as it gets later. Its a very fun place to hang out and have some drinks, and you can't miss it if you're into salsa, samba or merengue.

What a great club to go out dancing. Only problem is, they keep all the doors shut and there's NO AIR in that place. As crowded as it is, that's ridiculous and I think it's going to cause them to lose a lot of business. Other than that, it's a very fun club!

Loca Luna has a large facility including a long bar side, mobile tables and slim chairs indoors and outdoors that can be put away or moved easily to accomodate more space. There is a dance floor area next to a live band stage; giving an overall pleasant of a so called latin tropical experience. As for the drinks I warn you about the cost and taste. I paid 8.50 for a horrible tasteless Long Island Ice Tea cocktail and some new friends bought a pitcher of Saint Gria for 25.00 that tasted like ice water with a tint of grapey winey fruits. My goodness I have trouble paying my gas, fix me a real drink!! If you enjoy the tastes of drinks with satisfication don't ask for one here, because you will be embarrased how this bartender mixes a drink. My advice is don't go if you want to get ripped by someone making a killing off tabs that has no right making an expensive cocktail.

This place is now on Amsterdam near the Park. The small plates were great, we were seated promptly at the upper level. This made the craziness downstairs more tolerable, but it was a bit too hot. Downstairs, near the bar, there is a serious dating scene and the music (on the week-ends at least) is at full blast. The service was a bit slow, but generally OK. the mojitos were too sweet I thought.

BEST FOODIE EXPERIENCE! A group of 7 girlfriends went to this restaurant on 2/29/08. We had dinner reservations made through Open Table, yet I did call the actual restaurant the day before to ensure that this was honored. NO problems.
PROS: (1) The food was fantastic. I am not a picky eater, but I can tell the difference between good food and great food and Loca Luna dishes were SUPERB! It was a large group so we tried many items yet didn't leave room desert. The calamari, butternut empanadas, spare ribs and spinach were my ultimate favorites. Everything on the table to eat was wonderful, fish taco, traditional empanadas, potatoes, flat iron steak, etc! (2) Peter the bartender; the best. I was compelled to give him an extra tip even though a customary tip was added to the table because of the size of our party. Thoughts of his Tropical mojito make me want to make the trip there now. (3) The vibe of the place is great as well. The band is a wonderful plus. (4) Our server was good and extra runners brought out most of our very large order quickly.
CONS: (1) Bartender's drinks could be more consistent. If Peter didn?t make it, it wasn?t worth drinking, but I know who to go to for my drinks. (2) It rained that night so sitting outside was a little challenging due to some rain coming through their covering. I would usually pitch a fit about something like that, but the dining experience was so positive, who cares!
BOTTOM LINE: Give Loca Luna a try. I have only been there once, but I will go again and hope to have another great experience.

I made a reservation for my birthday for a group. When I made the reservation all I was told was to get there a little bit early to secure the table. We got there and ordered drinks and appetizers. We had been there for about 30 minutes and the waitor rudely told us we had 15 more minutes to get up and leave. I asked why and he said that the we could only stay at the table for 45 minutes. At no point while I reserved the table was I told there was a time limit in sitting down and eating. The waitor crossed the line by saying "you can't just sit here and not order anything." Every person in my group had ordered food and drinks and the tab was huge! My friend waited an additional 15 minutes to see the manager and never got to see him. They almost ruined my birthday but we somewhere else. I went there because it supposedly is a latin scene and I am Latina. This is NOT a latin scene. It's more like Loca Gringos! I will never go there again.

Sorry, but I have been told that as a rule, employees are still encouraged to write reviews.
This should make the critical reader wonder if any of the recent reviews can be trusted.

Actually, besides my personal dissatisfaction, friends who have long stopped visiting as well and gave it another shot at the new local, have all said pretty much the same thing. Not such a cool late night vibe.

The problem is the later crowd. Where does they come from anyway?
Younger and a bit more more down and out is a fair description.
Especially as it gets to be later on Fridays and Saturdays, it seems.

Few older guest -- let's say over 30 -- who have reached a more discerning level of company will enjoy a crowd that is, well, a bit rough.

While the food has maintained its quality, skip the later night plans here -- even though the bands are certainly OK.

Oh, and be careful. There have been some crimes reported in the parking lot.
How about some more security, please?

Sorry, it's just too rough for the time being for this guy to hang out where I don't feel completely safe.

I recently took my entire family to Loca Luna. This was the first time we were going there so wasn't sure what to expect. We were seated promptly ( on the patio) by the lady at the front desk. We realized that we preferred to be inside where the band was playing - so we requested that with Casey ( our server). Casey promptly gave us a great table ( which had been reserved for the owners). Casey is the best server we have had anywhere.

He made our evening special. Right from asking us if this was our first time there to explaining the menu and the portion sizes etc .....everything was just perfect.

The food was delicious ( we loved the Fish Tacos - I still have visions of the Caramel Flan) ..... all items were served very promptly ( within 10 minutes each time ). The music was great and we loved watching people dance. It was an extremely enjoyable evening and our family will be going there soon.

As to the previous two entries, Loca Luna is DEFINITELY NOT closed!!!! They are closed on Mondays though.

When I stopped by for some drinks and tapas this past Friday, I stumbled upon a wrap party for the movie Get Low . They had a portion of the restaurant closed until 9:00 or so for the cast and crew. The cast that was there included Bill Murray, Robert Duvall and Sissy Spacek. Loca Luna opened up the event after awhile and all the celebrities were very welcoming and approachable. While I didn't eat this time, I did get to have some cocktails with some really amazing actors. I got my photos taken too! Now that the patio walls are rolled up, I will be enjoying the Spring weather a lot at Loca Luna this Summer! Thanks again for a great evening!

I went here this weekend for a Girls Night Out. I was wary of the whole tapas thing, having heard mixed reviews from someone who went to Pura Vida (and spent a fortune). So I was prepared to leave Loca broke and hungry but oh how I was surprised. I over ordered with a plate of fish tacos, an order of calamari and a Mojito. The food was served promptly, and very fresh, plus the portion sizes were great. After eating my share and passing plates around to others, we were all satisfied and none spent more than $30. The service was curteous and experienced, she promptly split the check 6 ways with gratuity included, which was very convenient. After dinner, we danced and laughed in the adjoining room with the live band. I felt like I was watching an episode of Dancing with the Stars or something, the regulars were grooving. This was the perfect way to spend an evening with a group of friends or even a date.

I've taken small groups, I've taken large groups (my wedding party, in fact!). Management was helpful and courteous - even though I could tell he had a hundred things going on. The service has always been incredible, the food too! This is by far one of the best places in Atlanta to take a date, a group of friends, out of town guests, whatever. The patio is gorgeous and the people watching is first rate. Go... go now.

I will definitely return to Loca Luna very soon after my latest experience there over the holiday weekend. I brought a friend who had never been there before who I promised a good experience and tasty food. What we got was beyond our expectations....Delectable Dishes and Sparkling Service. We dined on plate after plate of creatively prepared tapas that were both cooked properly and seasoned with care. Our server Allison was quick and precise but with all the grace in the world (and a very nice smile as well).
I have created a new customer with my friend and we will both return soon to our new favorite tapas paradise.

I have left Loca Luna the past few times that I have eaten there very unhappy. I decided to give it one last chance and I left smiling and ready to go back. Something has changed.
Our server was a young man named Joseph. We wanted to order a bottle of wine and he was both enthusiastic and well learned with the wine list. The thing that impressed me most was the fact that he was trying to lead us toward a bottle we would like and not the most expensive on the list.
The food was outstanding. It arrived at the table as the wine was being poured and every item we ordered was seasoned perfectly. I usually ask for salt but it was not needed.
Well worth the second chance.

I have left Loca Luna the past few times that I have eaten there very unhappy. I decided to give it one last chance and I left smiling and ready to go back. Something has changed.
Our server was a young man named Joseph. We wanted to order a bottle of wine and he was both enthusiastic and well learned with the wine list. The thing that impressed me most was the fact that he was trying to lead us toward a bottle we would like and not the most expensive on the list.
The food was outstanding. It arrived at the table as the wine was being poured and every item we ordered was seasoned perfectly. I usually ask for salt but it was not needed.
Well worth the second chance.

Pros: Everthing but the parking

Cons: Parking.

I really liked Loca Luna until I went to Eclipse di Luna. HOwever, on its own, Loca Luna is a good restaurant with a different ambience than Eclipse di Luna. I would highly recommend making reservations on the weekend. With reservations, we were seated promptly (but not until everyone in our party was present). Once seated in the patio, we immediately smelled smoke. At the table next to us, a large party of women was smoking. When I asked to be moved, the server informed me that the whole restaurant was smoking and that we could be moved but there would be no guarantee that the same problem would occur. However, she also informed us that it would be difficult to move us since we were already seated and seating was limited. For the rest of the evening, I enjoyed cigarette smoke with my meal. I ordered some chips and queso dip, but the dip was cold. Queso is supposed to be hot and tastes better hot, not cold. My friend ordered Riesling wine and the bartender gave her something else that was definitely not Riseling. The other dishes we ordered were good, including the plantains, the bistec, and the shrimp. But I definitely enjoyed the food at Eclipse better.

This past Friday night, was another 40th. Birthday Party, again, for the same person, third time around. And we always go to the wild and crazy Loca Luna. LL has some of the best Tapas anywhere in the ATL. Our jovial waitron started bringing us multiple pitchers of Sangria, laden with fresh fruit. Some of the tasty Tapas I can remember were the Sauteed Shrimp w/Spicy Coconut Cream, Calamari w/Pico De Gallo, and those wonderful Crisp Fried Potatoes w/Roasted Pepper Aioli. About that time the Brazilian band kicked in, and so did the Sangria. I don't know how I remembered to do the Salsa, but I do remember one great party at Loca Luna!

Pros: Creative Tapas, Wonderful Drinks, and Great Dancing Music!

Cons: Parking Can Be Tricky, If Driving!

I went this past Friday night and everything went smoothly. Our reservations were for a party of nine but they had no problem when we cut it down to only six. Arthur was our waiter and would highly recommend him. His service was great, always there to check up on us, got everyones orders right and didn't make us feel rushed or slowed down. The food was excellent, it was very artistic and just the right price for the service and quality we got. Parking nearby was $10, but it is just what you would expect anywhere in downtown Atlanta. I wouldn't say that was a con. The music and the atmosphere was just what I expected, with the Latin music and beautiful pond.

Long wait, rude management (messed up reservation then didn't appologize or comp), food is sub par and overpriced. Could be a lot better if run properly. Very dissapointing.
