    Absolutely loved the decor, and unique atmosphere. Although it was dark, it didn't feel dark.. if that makes sense. Our waitress was awesome. Very professional, knowledgeable, engaging and accommodating. 5 stars for her. My only issue was my dish tasted salty to me. I ordered the veal meatloaf. I don't use salt so it's hard for me to distinguish whether it was overly salty. I did have our friends try it and they agreed. Aside from that we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will recommend it to friends and will return. Thank you!!

    We took my mother-in-law and family to 1kept for her 60th birthday, and couldn't have had a better experience! We arrived early and had cocktails in the lounge before being seated. Our cocktail server friendly and attentive, drink menu excellent. Once seated, we had an excellent server who was extremely knowledgable and attentive. Everything we ordered was fabulous. As we were a large party, we were able to try (and share) most of the menu items. Our favorites were the Deviled Quail Eggs, Truffled Popcorn, and Pork Belly appetizers. Scallops with Corn Risotto and the Pork Tenderloin with grits were by far the best entrees. We've already made another reservation--can't wait to go back!

    We have dined here several times and have always enjoyed it. There are now some tasty new menu additions, but our favorites from visits past are still there. The tuna entree was a big hit this time. Service has always been friendly and attentive, but this time, our server was outstanding. She took great care of us.

    My boyfriend and I tried 1kept after becoming tired of our tried and true staples (we like restaurants like the Optimist, Canoe, St. Cecilia, etc.). Everything was excellent. We had a watermelon and heirloom tomato salad that was to die for; the watermelon was sweet and firm and the tomatoes had an excellent flavor. We got the mushroom flat bread for our next course--also amazing. My boyfriend had the whole market fish and loved it; I had the scallops and they were delicious. We finished off the meal with the peanut butter mousse--incredible. Service was also excellent and our server was super helpful with menu suggestions. We will be returning :)

    We went in for a casual dinner. We felt our waitress was very pushy throughout the evening, even asking if we wanted to look at a dessert menu before my fiance was done with her entree. The dessert (peanut butter mouse pie) turned out to the amazing and was the best dish. I was disappointed in the calamari sausage flatbread, it lacked flavor. The sausage really had not spices in it. My fiance got the lamb pasta which was pretty tasty but nothing to write home about. We may come back eventually but definitely are not rushing back.

    We went out for a couples night without the kids. The ambience is very neat with an industrial and old time feel to it. Noise level was typical for anywhere on a Friday night. The scallops were amazing. Hanger steak was very tender. And the watermelon flatbread was unexpectedly good. Our server was great, very friendly and helpful. We actually wanted a recommendation for another place to get a drink after and he brought the resident expert over to help us out. Very cool place, we would go back.

    My husband and I were meeting another couple for dinner, and they were running late. The staff was very accommodating and were able to be flexible with our reservation seating and "make it work." We loved the decor and the food was fantastic. I will be returning soon for the kale and sausage salad, in particular. All of us ordered different entrees and we loved everything.

    Was unsure what to expect as I nor my dining companions had ever tried this restaurant before. We had a good inkling by their website that this place would be right up our alley. It was amazing. The inside of the restaurant is beautifully decorated. The food is amazing. We had their Sgt. Peppers flatbread to start. So Yummy! All their sausage is made in house and it was terrific. I had their trout dish which was scrumptious. My friend had their lamb and pasta dish and his wife had the chicken and spaeztle. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. Their drink menu is great as well. We also tried the dark chocolate creme brulee, OMG. I love creme brulee and this ranks up there as one of the best I have ever had. We will definitely be back.

    1 Kept was so delicious. I usually narrow my choices to 2-3 thiga on the menu quicky. This menu - while not too large - had phenomenal choices. All their entrees and apps sounded so wonderful. I left the skillful waiter pick and he did a fabulous job. Also the drink menu was impressive. I will be returning and bringing lots of friends.

    I like that it's tucked in the back, off the street. You don't feel like you're in the heart of Buckhead/Midtown. It feels like you are in the know of this cute secret! The restaurant's decor lends to a cool, modern, but warm vibe. The service is very friendly and accommodating. I requested comfy chairs since my bf has back issues and got them. The food was perfectly fine, but not amazing. We ordered the steak, salmon (the best), shrimp and grits (good, but a little too much going on), and the tagliatelle (a little too al dente). We also got the dark chocolate creme brûlée, which had good flavor and perfectly brûléed top, but the creme itself was overcooked. You won't necessarily be blown away, but you won't be disappointed, either.

    I was expecting a much cozier quite place. My wife and I have DATE NIGHT once a month and this was the restaurant I picked based upon the contemporary pictures on the restaurant website and the nice reviews. I wasn't thrilled about the seat location all the way near the employees bathroom towards the back. I later realized being in an isolated area shielded us from the noise taking place throughout the restaurant. Romantic this place is not. At least the meal itself and the excellent service by our server, Nathan, more than made up for any disappointments.

    I have been to 1kept twice now, and I have found the food to be outstanding each time. The wine list has some very good yet reasonably priced choices which is very much appreciated. I love the pork tenderloin and the dark chocolate creme brulee is out of this world and I am not a dessert lover normally.

    Dined on 6/11/2014
    I've been here before and had a great experience, but I was a little concerned because this time I was bringing 8 people, a cake, and a 5 year old. Everything was great. 3 of our party didn't show up, so we were wasting table space. I probably wouldn't bring the kid on a weekend night, but it was fine on Wednesday. They kept the cake in the back, added candles, brought it out on a stand and served it by the slice. Seriously above and beyond service. The food is delicious. The menu has a few staples but the rest changes frequently, which is perfect. The cocktail list is awesome. The atmosphere is fun.

    I'm in love with this restaurant. It's such a unique menu...each dish soooo mouthwateringly good. The pimento cheese app is a MUST try. Seriously, don't leave there without experiencing it (the bacon jam sends it over the top). The scallops and both chicken dishes are amazing as well. I've never had such a light and flavorful risotto before (and made with corn...like I said, unique). The atmosphere is fun/lively. The staff is super friendly. I first experienced 1 Kept about two months ago and have already been four times. And I can't wait to go back again!

    Sort of an interesting experience. The food was pretty good, but the service was a bit bizarre. Even though we were plenty early, we had a bit of a hard time getting the bartenders' attention. Then when we sat down to eat, we ordered a bottle of wine and the server gave my date the wine to taste instead of me. I'm kind of old fashioned, so I just found that to be weird.

    1kept was everything I wanted for a sophisticated, yet trendy Birthday Dinner. Highly recommend for foodie palettes and mixology cocktail snobs alike. Great atmosphere, good vibes, and incredibly attentive staff. Still dreaming about the chocolate cake that I didn't even have to order. Was suitable for a special occasion, but I also can't wait to go back and sit in the lounge for a more casual night. Best part was, they don't hassle you about a big group, they just accommodate you.

    As other reviews have mentioned, the restaurant is noisy and not the best place to hold a conversation. Food was average at best - under seasoned and not entirely sure my chicken schnitzel was 100% cooked. When telling my waitress this after haven eaten 3/4 of it before I noticed, she merely just took the plate off the table - didn't try to get me something new or offer to remove it from the bill. Waitress was also very unknowledgable of menu or how things were prepared. She at one point mentioned, that if you were to have a sweet tooth like herself, would maybe like the Cornish hen. Maybe when it comes to describing dessert as sweet, it might be a better thing. I will not be going back.
