Our server, Brandis was refeshing & honest. She had the best attitude and kept us laughing the whole time.(shout out to her!!)The fresh guacamole was okay. I don't like tomatoes in mine, I always thinks its filler where more avocado should be. The queso dip was AMAZINGLY good, especially when you take the fresh salsa and mix them together! I personally did not order the steak fajitas, but I got to taste their smoky charred greatness & kept asking my friend for more to eat! I ordered a triple threat plate that had an enchilada, a tamale and fresh beef taco. The taco was very tasty for being basic meat, lettuce, tomatoes, & cheese. The tamale was moist and cooked well.(favorite thing on the plate) The enchilada had spicy chicken with red sauce even though I ordered it verde. This just meant tomatillo over the top. I prefer all of it verde if ordered it that way. The beans were also very well prepared. As for the margaritas, my friend could drink one and was satisfied. i ordered a second and had to share since they were not weak. You want a serious margarita, yeah it was serious. We laughed about the bracelet that comes wrapped around the "drank". I dont think the Pope, Mary or Jesus would be to happy if you are stumbling around tossed. So designated drivers are a must since it may catch you by surprise! For the ladies that like to shop, there is the Hacienda on the property if you feel the urge to buy imported Mexican goodies.(Not me!) I was also told the owners live nearby, maybe next time I will go say hello!

Pros: The steak fajitas were the business!!

Cons: Seated by ourselves upstairs, pay attention host!!

For Mexican food I tend to alternate between those that are super authentic (El Taco Veloz) or those that are gourmet pretending to be authentic (Lupe.) But there's something to be said for nailing the basics, and No Mas, in the colorful Castleberry Hill, gets it right on so many accounts. The salsa is smoky-good, the guac is fresh, margaritas are stiff, the atmosphere is festive and unique. (Where else can you buy the margarita pitcher you're drinking?) While their menu tends to balance what you'd find in the 'burbs and what you'd find in town, I've become a fan of their chicken enchilada with mole sauce. The mole tastes sweet, almost like chocolate, and covered in cheese it's a nice balance between slightly sweet and slightly....cheesey. With Mexican food a little goes a long way, and tasty basics, refreshments and a staple or two will please most.

Pros: Cool atmosphere, good at the little things

Cons: Overpriced at times

Ate at No Mas for our company dinner. Accidentally came in through the furniture area (which is an eye-catcher by itself), but atmosphere of bar and dining area was just as great!

I ordered the fish tacos (first time trying anyones fish tacos). Didn't know what to expect from the new taste, but the way No Mas prepared them....they were so great that i'm not sure I would try anyone elses!

I had to take the rest of my food home with me since I couldn't stop eating the chips, cheese, and salsa before i ordered my meal.

Service was top-notch!

I am planning on going back for my birthday dinner!

My girlfriends and I always celebrate "Mexican Mondays" and gather for drinks, gossip and hopefully, yummy Mexican food. We've always had our place and were devastated when it closed. After reading reviews for No Mas, we decided to give it a try. All I can say is AMAZING! The food was incredible, the cheese dip heavenly with all the add-ins and the drinks strong. I loved the food and the it was a really nice place, very unique and furnished so nicely.

We absolutely adore this place. Great outdoor dining with beautiful scenery. We almost always get the Fajitas for 2. Their perfectly cooked and seasoned Steak, Chicken and Shrimp fajitas with their Classico Tequila made with fresh lime juices. Try to go on a slow night, you will get great service. We also order their Steak salad and Taco Combos on occasion- also very good. Watch out for Cinco De Mayo at any Mexican Restaurant! A Guaranteed 3 hour wait or more!! and you know the servers were going nuts too! PS, when you are asking for additional items at the restaurant, ask for them at the same time so servers do not have to run back and forth from your table. This place is a MUST for us! It just made my hubby's night when we went here for his birthday last week!

Pros: Best fajitas and Margaritas in town

Cons: Long waits on busy nights

This is one of my favorite places in Atlanta. It has a really cool vibe and great food. I love sitting on the covered patio, you don't even feel like you are in downtown Atlanta. The building itself is an old warehouse that has been decked out with all these really cool handmade items from Mexico. If you get a chance to go, try the steak fajitas, they are the best I have ever had. Super tender and juicy, I asked what made them so good and the server told me they were marinated for 24 or 48 hours, I can't remember exactly, but DELICIOUS. I am not much of a drinker, but my husband loves the classic margaritas and definately save room for dessert. They have a chocolate and coffee bar in the furnature store. Avocado Cheesecake ??? All I can say is wow.

Pros: Great Food and Drinks

Cons: Far from Home

I stopped in because I had a 50% off coupon for their new breakfast menu. I ordered their breakfast burrito and an egg and sausage biscuit to go. Portion sizes were good, and the food was delicious, filling, and memorable.... i.e., I plan to go back for breakfast! I've also had dinner there in the past, and I LOVE their fish tacos and nachos!

Highly Recommend the short walk/drive from the CNN center!

I attended my sister's birthday dinner here back in July. We were told we were waiting for a large party upstairs to leave at 7:30 PM. At 8:30 we were told they were cashing out. At 9:30, a few of them lingered at the table. By 10:15 we were offered a server for the outdoor patio/waiting area. By then (having not received any service at all) we were livid and asked to speak with the manager, who told us we were welcomed to continue to wait or that we could leave. We left. Will never return. If they didnt want the $$$ of 22 paying patrons (spend hundreds at bar along - which has VERY slow service), what makes you think they want yours?

I wanted to find a restaurant to go to after my graduation ceremony at the Georgia Dome on a Saturday afternoon. We had a large group (about 20 people), and due to a miscommunication with my wife, I was only able to give 5 days notice.

I called 10 different restaurants around Atlanta, trying to find someplace that would take a group our size, on short notice, didn't charge an arm and a leg for the reservation, didn't split up the group, had reasonable prices, and didn't require driving out to the burbs.

No Mas! Cantina was the first place that said yes without requiring a payment, so I went ahead with the reservation for 5:30. I'm glad I did!

We expected the graduation to last from 2:00-4:00, and with some time for pictures afterward, and fighting the traffic to get out of the parking garage and to the restaurant, 5:30 seemed like a good time. This was the shortest graduation EVER, lasting only 45 minutes. So, we were instantly about an hour-and-a-half ahead of schedule. I called the restaurant around 3:00 to give them a heads-up, and they were able to move us up to 4:15 on VERY short notice. This was much appreciated, since they could have just as easily said too bad and made us wait until 5:30. We were seated in the upper Mezzanine level, which afforded some privacy. Toward the end of the meal, the place was pretty packed, but the restaurant was spacious enough to not make us feel cramped, crowded, or rushed.

Some of us got there 15-20 minutes early, so we had drinks at the bar. The bartender was very attentive and pleasant.

Once we got our table, the waiter made a few mistakes, bringing the wrong beverage AND dinner plate to my 88-year-old grandmother. In both instances, the waiter told us WE were the ones that told him wrong, until we pointed to the item on the menu to show him what we asked for. Only then did he apologize for his mistake and bring out the correct items. Describing food we are unfamiliar with to a waiter with a slight language barrier and a bit of an attitude was difficult. However, he was very willing to split the check a wierd way, which is uncommon for a group of that size and very much appreciated.

We had complimentary chips and very good salsa (I detected chipotle and cilantro). The margaritas were fine, and the michelada was tasty, different, and very spicy. The chips, salsa, and drinks were refilled promptly and frequently, but beyond that, the food service was slow. We were there over 2 hours with just our appetizers and main courses. It took 20 or 30 minutes for the first food to come out after we had ordered. We were enjoying the time with friends and family, so we were in no hurry. It was a leisurely-paced meal.

Only a half-mile from the Georgia Dome, the location was perfect for us. The atmosphere was lively, unique, and fun, and the food was excellent in a very unusual way. Some of the food was pricey, but there were inexpensive alternatives available too.

The Hacienda (store) and adjacent Bodega Garden were good for the women of the family to linger and peruse afterward.

Overall, this place was a great pick for our group. I would highly recommend it to anyone tired of the same-old, same-old.

Pros: food, atmosphere, uniqueness

Cons: slow service, hard to find

The food at No Mas is delicious and of course the atmosphere is great. Handmade crafts by Mexican artesanos fill the restaurant and you can even buy them at a gallery adjacent to the restaurant (No Mas is a pun as in No Mass production). The only downside is that parking is limited and on busy nights you may have to park way down the street (Valet parking is offered on some nights). Another downside is that it is hard to find, as it is tucked down an alley-like street. However, once you get there, grab a table out on the patio and order one of their excellent mojitos, it far outweighs any negatives.

I was excited to hear that the owners of the Vortex were opening a Mexican restaurant. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to expectations. The food was okay, the atmosphere was fun, and the house margaritas go down a little too easily. That being said, I expected a lot better.

I went to NoMas for dinner last night and it was amazing! I had the steak fajitas and for dessert I had the Cuatro Leches, some of the best food I have ever had. The atmosphere is as good as the food, I loved the whole experience.

I recently went there for a work party and it was awesome. Everyone had a really great time, it always helps when the boss is picking up the tab. We had a buffet with fajitas and all the fixings. It was really delicious and fresh, they kept bringing up more as we were eating so it wasn't like sometimes where if you wait to eat, you get the leftover/dried out food. The drinks were good and it had a relaxed but very festive atmosphere. I would highly recommend it for any large gathering.

My husband and I went to No Mas this past Saturday and the whole experience was dreadful. It was crowded but not packed. When we walked in the door the hostess looked the other way, until we spoke to her. Then they had to go check if they had any tables, when they finally came back they took us to our table, on the way we walked past serveral empty tables so i'm not sure why we had to wait on them to check for a table. Then we sat there for at least 15 minutes wating on our waiter, we told the hostess no one had come by and could she please send our waiter. We waited another 5-10 minutes and finally decided to just leave. We told the hostess and manager on our way out why we were leaving and no only did they not aplogize, but they did not even reply. When we got outside we had to wait in line to get our keys from the valet (there is no where else to park). Our car was the front of the lot and we walked to it, we just had to wait on our keys, which was not that big of a deal there were other people there before us. However, when the valet finally go to us, he handed my husband the keys pointed at where our car was and proceeded to tell us that the valet parking was free but we were supposed to tip. Not only had he not done anything to deserve a tip, he had the nerve to make a comment like that before we had even had a chance to tip him. We did no tip him, and we will never go back to No Mas for any reason it was a complete waste of time. I highly do not recomend it. On the upside, the decor was very nice, and interesting to look at but definally not worth the bad service.

I've been here once before but I was hammered, so this is actually my first sober review of the place.

Location is great because I love to see this part of town developing in to something more than what you'd expect. It's quirky, colorful and inviting, for the most part.

Service was so-so. We sat at the bar and it took about 10 minutes before anyone greeted us. Yes, I said TEN MINUTES - unacceptable. Especially since it was only 5:30 and the place was not busy. Bartenderess was pleasant, but disconnected; she didn't seem to be all there.

The food - once we were greeted, we started with a couple of margaritas. OK, but a bit too sweet for my tastes and not enough tequila (see first paragraph). Salsa was yummy - smokey, rich and delicious. Chips, not so much. They weren't bad, but they were all broken - the largest piece I had was maybe the size of a quarter.

Ordered off the DARW menu and started with some really, really good calamari. I mean, probably some of the best I've ever had - not at all rubbery and wonderful flavor. Then, I moved on to a chicken dish which was so-so - can't even remember what it was comprised of now other than some mashed potatoes (really?!?) and green salsa - not enough cheese, either. Flavor wasn't bad, but it wasn't sensational, either.

After eating more of the smashed chips and salsa, I was stuffed so I brought my flan home and it's calling my name from the refrigerator right now. I'm going to assume it's tasty - it's flan for crying out loud. Maybe I'll have it for breakfast.

Oh, and the thing that bugged me the most - why, oh, why, would you put a 6 foot PLASTIC palm tree in the middle of your restaurant? I mean, there's plenty of light in there for a real one and it would have been so much nicer and authentic than the dust-covered fake monstrosity currently residing there. Just a thought. I'm a Virgo - these small details don't get by me very easily.

I will go back, though. I like it, regardless of it's flaws. Adios!

I love this place! I went on a Friday night (my first time) expecting not to get good customer service being that it would be very busy. The restaurant had vallet parking! The amotsphere was beautiful. There were heaters outside. When we went in they didn't have a place for us right away but they got one fast. The waitress was very sweet, plus she was very helpful in helping us choose from the menu. I went to restroom and when I came back the food was there waiting! The waitress was very attentive. I read some of the bad reviews and I can't agree at all. But you can't please everyone. Thank you NO MAS for a very pleasant experience!!

YUMMMMMY! I love to eat and I really love to eat out, but it seems to be really hard to find a restaurant that gives me everything I am looking for in a dining expirience. They may have the food, but the service stinks, or they have the service, but the drinks are so so. No Mas! Cantina gave me everything that I want! The service was friendly and knowledgeable. The drinks were strong and delicious. I had the Santos margarita and I even got a cool little bracelet. The food MMMMMMMMMM. My mouth starts to water just thinking about it. I had the pork chop with chipotle mashed potatoes and an apple tamale so so good. The pork chop was cooked just right, still juicy and not at all dry and that tamale WOW I have only had chicken or pork tamales, but this was great, sweet and spicy. I was stuffed, but I went ahead and had dessert, we only live once. I split the 4 leches cake with my guest. Delicious!!. Seriously......so good.

Pros: Food, Drinks, Service etc

Cons: NONE

YES-the patio is nice. YES-the margaritas are good (but small and expensive). Yes, they have a tortilla machine. STILL-the food is lacking. The salsa tastes like they add smoke flavoring rather than actually roasting chilies. The rice had dried up wrinkled frozen vegetables in them. The refried beans have a strange orange color. The chicken was flavorless. I was really hoping to find the best Mexican food in town, but the quest continues...this place is for show only.

I usually don't write on things like this, but sometimes someone does something that deserves to be recognized. I called No Mas! Cantina to get directions. By the time I called I was starting to get really frustrated and upset. A lady (I wish I could remember her name) answered the phone. She began giving me directions, but I was so upset it was hard for focus on what she was saying. She offered to stay on the phone with me until I arrived. Once I felt I could find my way, on Walker St. (lol). I said good bye. As I was looking for Haynes, I saw a friendly face smiling at me and waving, I guess she knew who I was because I was going so slow. I asked if she was the one I had been talking to me on the phone, she said yes, then proceeded to point me to the parking lot and walk me inside. WOW. The crazy thing was she was from the restaurant and I was going to the furnature store.

I read the last review and all I can say is WHAT...? I have been to No Mas! Cantina several times and always found the service friendly and caring. The food is delicious and the atmosphere beautiful. Taquaria de sol??? My friends and I call them the taco Natzis, 1st you stand in line to order your food, 2nd you have to pay for the salsa, and 3rd where do you sit to enjoy the tacos once you order? Definately, not a covered patio with a soothing fountain. Well to each their own, all I can say to anyone reading this is give No Mas! Cantina a try and decide for yourself.

I had heard alot about this place and wanted to see it. What I heard was correct it is a pretty place, full of all kinds of Mexican furniture. But, it was like eating in a furniture store, even the menu says I can buy the table and chairs I was sitting at. Talk about shoving it down your throat. The order finally came 30 minutes after placing it and we only ordered tacos. They were cold so we sent them back and didn't see the waiter again for a while. There is a strange attitude there as if everyone is above you and your lucky to be gracing their presence. Will not go back again, for real service and food try Taqueria del Sol. The owners need to wake up and concentrate on one thing, the food. No more No Mas!

I wrote a review about No Mas a while back after my first visit, which was pleasant. I have since gone back many times and hate to say that every time I go the quality of food and service goes down. The salsa is great, the patio is nice but overall the food is inconsistent and the service is poor. There are so many other Mexican restaurants in Atlanta that are more focused on great food than pretty decor.

I recently visited No Mas! Cantina after seeing the thing on Cinco de Mayo on FOX. I have to tell you this place is great. I thought the restaurant looked good on TV, but that doesn't do it justice. It is breathtaking. The food was some of the best I have had and I love Mexican food, with everything getting more expensive I was happly surprised by the prices, very resonable. I have read some of the other reviews and I am not sure why some have been bad, my experience was great. I will definately be back.

Pros: Great Food, Friendly Service

.

I really did love No Mas the first few times I ate there. It was the sort of place I would take people when I found out they had never been.

Solid food. Good Drinks. Great Service.

But recently things have started changing.

First it was the service. Each visit has been a little slower. And not just at peak times. But at Tuesday evening sort of times. Wrong orders. Longer and longer waits for food and at times even long waits for water. I mean really. Water?

But I could get past the service because the food was still good.

"It was" as in past tense. Recently the quality of the food has gone way down. My chicken is getting fattier and the once phenomenal salsa is getting a little watery. And I really don't want it to be bad. But it is getting to the point where I would get better food at Rancho Comida #4.

So why still go? I still think they make great margaritas.

But that soon won't keep me going back. Gas is expensive and I can make margaritas at the house.

I really want to keep liking them and I hope they get things fixed over there or soon their name will also describe their state of business . . . No Mas.

Sorry. I couldn't help myself.

Cons: Bad Service and Decrease in Quality of Food

Great place to hang out and have some margaritas, but the food was not as good as expected. If you want to hang out or have a girl's night out...this is the place, but don't go here to get great Mexican food.

Pros: margarita

Cons: food

The service was good. The margaritas were good, decently strong, but nothing special. I ordered the combination trio, with a tamale and two enchiladas. I am not exaggerating when I say it was barely above a microwave meal in terms of flavor and freshness. A friend had the fried chicken taco, which was something out of a public school lunch nightmare. Flavorless AND fried! How does this happen? A dry chicken finger thrown in with some iceberg lettuce and a smidge of tomato does not make a taco. Other friends had the fajitas, which they said were very good.

Whoever said this place has the look of mexico must have never been there. Maybe they went to the Bennigans in Mexico or the Pier One in Mexico? I'm not saying that the decor was awful or anything by any stretch - in fact it was pleasant - it just didn't strike me as "authentic".

My experience was fine at this restaurant, but I wasn't blown away by any stretch. When it comes to Mexican cuisine, Nuevo Laredo is by far the best in Atlanta. But No Mas has ample seating, a gigantic patio, good margaritas, and will do fine when you don't want to sit through the long wait at Nuevo Laredo.

Pros: lots of seating, big patio, nice atmosphere

Cons: food is so so

Upon arrival, you notice the great outdoor patio as you enter. Lots of seating at the bar and another level upstairs ideal for large parties. Food was superb!! and service even better (main dish came out before I finished my appetizer). Portions are big but not obscene. Extensive list of tequillas and highly recommend the classico margaritas. Overall, excellent place for dinner or lazy afternoon lunch. Pricier than Chipotle but well worth it. Only downside is the location but that will soon change with all the construction.

This place rocks...as a bar...as a restaurant. The food has always been excellent. From the handmade flour tortillas to the fresh tasty smoky flavored chipolte salsa. The beer is cold but the margaritas could stand to have a little more "octane" added to them. The timing of the courses has always been perfect, never had our main course crowd our appetizers. Even the valets that park the cars are great, taking special consideration for my wife and our baby. The atmosphere is straight out of Mexico with 2 levels of seating and decor everywhere ( and decor that can be bought if you want). The price of things is in the middle, neither cheap nor expensive. The chicken with poblano pepper (relleno) and chipolte flavored mashed potatoes is what brings us back along with the sopapillas (This is the only place I have found in Atlanta that gets them 90 percent correct, not perfect but real close and I'm originally from the Southwest).

This place is awesome. Some of the best gourmet Mexican in Atlanta. Steak Fajitas are the best anywhere.

Believe me when I say, we are the ladies who LUNCH, daily. A bad place rarely gets a second chance. Last year No Mas was super slow, very average and on our "do not go" list. With some poking and prodding, we tried it again, and much to our suprise - it was GREAT! The service has come a very onlg way and so has the food! The menu is varied and clear, the food was fresh and really prompt! It is back on the rotation!

Cool place to be seen and have some drinks. . I enjoy the patio in the summer. Very roomy inside and has a cozy feel. I like the salsa, it has a different taste than most. Probably less spicy but a distinct flavor that is enjoyable. I ordered fajitas and they were pretty good. Margaritas are good too. The amazing thing is that they sell all the furniture and the dishware too. I thought that was pretty cool and it works especially in the artsy Castleberry hill neighborhood. Afrter work on Fridays gets a nice crowd until it gets late. I definitely recommend it for it's ambiance, food, and service that's usually very accomoadating.

About a year ago My boyfriend and I came to no mas, and everything was terrible, the service was slow and unattentive, the food was ok but not anywhere great and it took nearly an hour to get it! The manager tried to explained that they weren't ready for the amount of people because of blah blah blah! I never thought i would be back to this place, however, last week, my new boyfriend, (lol) and I came in again to castleberry hill for the art stroll and decided to stop at no mas for dinner. I was skeptical because the place looked packed and i thought it was going to be the same thing than before. what a huge surprise!! we came in were greeted promptly, and were given a wait of 30 minutes, came to the bar to have a drink and even though it was crowded we were able to get a drink pretty fast. Then our beeper went off in like 15 minutes, got seated and our server alex was very fast and he was really busy we could tell, he always smiled and was very attentive, the only bad thing was that my food came out wrong, however we told the manager sabastian and he took care of it really fast, he (really young) then came back and made sure that everything was fine, the service was superb! I wasn't even mad that my food came out wrong, they made me feel like I was the only customer in that restaurant! I eat out a lot, and specially since I had a bad impression of this restaurant it really surprised me on how much they have improved. If you were unlucky to get a bad experience before, try it again! it's amazing! Try the santos dolce, that margarita was amazing! and my boyfriend had the classic... it was good but too strong for me though. Anyways! Great job no mas! we will be back! ( maybe with another boyfriend ;)

We decided to try No Mas after hearing rave reviews. One review that stuck out in our minds was Creative Loafing's review when No Mas first opened and gave it a mediocre review. After having 2 margaritas, calamari appetizer & pancho's platter- we agree 100% with creative loafing. The food was ok at best but without a doubt not the best Mexican food we've had in Atlanta. It seemed more Americanized Mexican than authentic Mexican. Great scene which is why it's such a disappointment that the food was so lousy!

We watched No Mas under construction and couldn't wait for it to open. The atmosphere was very nice. The food and drinks were good. However, I really loved the ambience... Great place to take someone on a romantic date. Great patio area. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. A gem in the big city.

Finally! i have been searching for a great Mexican restaurant in Atlanta for a long time and i have found one. This place is slightly hidden off Walker st. But it is definitely a hidden gem. Starting off, I only have two complaints. The parking lot is tight. you may want to consider using valet parking b/c navigating that parking lot with a large car was very difficult.We arrived on a Tuesday evening a little after 8 p.m. and was told there would be a 15 minute wait. However, there were plenty tables free and i couldn't understand why we were waiting when plenty of tables ( in areas with servers) were open. Other than that, i have no complaints. we sat at the bar and i ordered a frozen strawberry margarita (only $5). i mistakenly thought that a $5 margarita would be neither strong nor good. however, i was very mistaken. That margarita was the best I've had in Atlanta, especially for that price. The perfect blend of strawberries and tequila. The complimentary chips were hot and the salsa was delicious. Not too hot, but not too mild. We ordered the fajita platter for 2, (25) and it was great. Juicy steak, shrimp, and chicken, with peppers and onions. Also included was rice and beans for 2, guacamole, sour cream, cheese, and tomatoes.The flavor and tenderness of the meats were just right. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it again. No Mas is a well-kept secret, but I doubt it will stay that way as Castleberry Hill gains popularity.

I convened a group of 20 at No Mas for my birthday and had a tremendous time. The staff was incredibly accommodating and fantastic to work with. We were not the easiest group to handle ? we had people coming and going and things could have easily become muddled. The wait staff and the manager were great and worked with us to make sure everything was managed smoothly. We really appreciated their flexibility and attentiveness. The food was excellent and we had a fabulous time. We have ALL agreed that we will come back and quite often. We are passing the word along that this is a great place to hang out with friends and have great food!

Wow, I can't believe a place like this exists in Atlanta. Beautiful decor, very tropical, I felt like I was on a beach in Mexico. The food was delicious, not your regular tex-mex but authentic flavors. I love everything Mexican and this place does Mexican right. Even down to the cute busboys and their broken English. If you need a little escape from the mundane Atlanta life, have a tamarindo margarita here.

I took a goup of 15 people to NoMas and the manager on duty was rude! We asked to be seated and were told we needed 75% of our group there before we could be seated - OK, no problem. Later when our entire party arrived - they had not arranged a table so were told we could sit on the patio and use a number of smaller tables - once the larger corner table was available we could move part of our party to it. As they were cleaning the larger table - and we started to move over - suddenly they wanted to sit another party there and when I questioned why was told the MANAGER had said to go ahead and seat the other party there.
I asked to speak to her and when questioned - she replied "sweetheart" you seem to be having an attitude problem - I happen to be an adult male, over 50 and certainly her lack of professionialism reached it's peak at that moment. She was right, and my attitude certainly did not improve and was not helped by the fact the food was poor to mediocre. I plan to write her upper management and can guarantee we will not be back nor will I advise the rest of the people who are attending our convention to find restaurants who hire such untrained and difficult staff.

I happen to be the President of my association and we have 1200 members arriving to attend our convention within the next few days - there will be an large sign explaining what happened and a recommendation that all our members do not bother to eat at NoMas.

Quite frankly the food is not worth the taxi fare nor the trouble to find this place.

I took a goup of 15 people to NoMas and the manager on duty was rude! We asked to be seated and were told we needed 75% of our group there before we could be seated - OK, no problem. Later when our entire party arrived - they had not arranged a table so were told we could sit on the patio and use a number of smaller tables - once the larger corner table was available we could move part of our party to it. As they were cleaning the larger table - and we started to move over - suddenly they wanted to sit another party there and when I questioned why was told the MANAGER had said to go ahead and seat the other party there.

Pros: Nice atmosphere

Cons: Poor excuse for management and very poor food

Best Fajitas this side of Texas. It's great to find a place for a "mini vacation" when just having dinner. Looking foward to my next visit. I had a wonderful time. It's really nice to have such friendly, professional, service, and when combined with delicous spicy shrimp Fajitas, mango Margaritas, and beautiful decor, made for a wonderful escape in the middle of the city. No Mas please, I've eaten too much. But I will be back for More.

This restaurant is a little off the beaten path, in fact a little hard to find, but definately worth the effort. My husband and I decided to try this restaurant before the Braves game yesturday. It is actully pretty close to the stadium and not very crowded. We sat on the patio, which was beautiful. The server was friendly and attentive. I had a mango margarita it was awesome. The salsa and chips are THE BEST I have ever had. We just had the calamari and quesadillas, had to save room for a hot dog at the game, but the apps were so good I will definately be back for dinner and dessert. You should give this place a try. A great secret just waiting to get out.

The decor was beautiful!! I met a friend and a few associates there on a Saturday around 3:30-4:00 PM. It was about 10 of us and seating was reserved for us upstairs. We all loved the ambience but the food was okay. Although I'm not a big Mexican food lover, but when any type of food is delicious--it's delicious! I've had much better Mexican food from a smaller type of establishment. The server was great, customer service, the server was attentive and pleasant. The pomegranate mojito was really good. This is a beautiful restaurant--if the food was better this place has the potential of being an awesome spot for dining and ambience! I can imagine the way it looks at night!

Pros: Ambience, parking, decor

My experience at this establishment was superb. Great service, great food and an awesome atmosphere. Try the fajitas No Mas! if you like an abundant amount of large shrimp, seasoned skirt steak and the freshest chicken I ever had. Drinks for the money in the city were very fairly priced. I asked for a classic margarita which the server was not aware of. It is how they make a margarita in Mexico (all alcohol, of course!). They gladly made it for me and said they would put it on the menu. I eat out at least 6 days a week and this place is one to return to.

I live and work for a major magazine located the Castleberry district. No doubt, this is a BEAUTIFUL restaurant and the store adjacent to the eatery has amazing hand-made pieces. However, the food is horrible! I never write negative reviews, but after my third visit (I tried to remain opptomistic, giving it a second and third try) the quality of the food NEVER improved. The food was stale and tastless. The size of the margaritas are embaressingly small. The menu is limited, the salsa tastes like chuncky bbq sauce (no kidding) and the list goes on. The After my third visit, I found out why. While exiting the front door and walking across the patio to the store full of extravagant Mexican imports, I witnessed an employee cleaning the floor of the freezer. All the while, trays and trays of beans and rice, stacked on shelves were swarming with flies!! Uncovered and exposed to the elements. But on a positive not, the mints at the front hostess stand are great!! Never again will I visit the beautiful tainted paradise!!!

This restaurant didn't get a single thing right throughout the entire meal! 6 waters forr 9 girls, 1 salsa, no chips. Had to order mydrink 4 times just to get it, and when it finally came, it was wrong. It took 4 hours to get our food, and by the time they pulled it out from uder the lamps, it was crusty and hard. When we asked for a manager, the food runner prentended to be one. I could go on, but I think you get the point. I absolutely do not reccomend eating here.

Far and away the best fajita's in Atlanta (and the best I've had anywhere - including compairing my several stops in Mexico). Amazing atmosphere - the restaurant is truly unique. Great Day of the Dead decore and excellent use of their mexican furniture (from the No Mas furniture store that is attached to the same loft building).

Located in up and coming Castleberry Hill - it's definitely the #1 dining spot there now. Service is great, fair pricing. Best treat beside the fajita's is the Quatros Leche cake!

Excellent service - the owner's and staff really care about this restaurant and its customers.
