  • "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."

  • "Every bite was over the top! The Quail eggs were fantastic as was the watermelon and feta flatbread. The lamb pasta was perfect in every way as was the chicken schnitzel. The service was outstanding. Well worth the price and will be back. The parking and restaurant enterance is behind the building and what you see from the street. Perfect from start to finish!"

  • "Great food and ambience! Great for a late night getaway."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "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 6/17/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "An excellent local restaurant. Great atmosphere, great food, great drinks and great people. "

  • "This has become my new favorite restaurant. The food, service and atmosphere can't be beat!! Don't miss the warm kale salad and pork tenderloin!!"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "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. "
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "We came in and the place was virtually empty. The hosted tried to sit us right beside the only other couple in the place. She seemed annoyed when I asked for at least 1 table between us. Afterwards we waited for about 15 minutes for someone to greet us before we decided to get up and leave."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "We didn't even know this place existed. The food was very good. We could hear ourselves. The owner came over to make sure all was well. Would go back for sure."

  • "I had a great experience here and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to have a great dining experience!"
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Been here like three or four times and the food never disappoints. If you want a sure meal then I recommend checking 1kept out!"

  • "The service was impeccable - terrific waiter! We went for Buckhead Restaurant Week and chose from the special menu. Everything was delicious. I loved the watermelon gazpacho. The music was a bit loud, but at our request the waiter got them to turn it down a bit. "
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "Awesome. Great find This place is in a central location with friendly wait staff. Popcorn was awesome"
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "We don't like noisy restaurants and could hardly carry on a conversation without shouting. The food was average. Will not return."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "This restaurant had great service and good food, but when you make a reservation be sure to ask for seats that have cushion backs. The table that we set at had wood chairs with metal backs that were very uncomfortable. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "A friend recommended this wonderful find. Our waitress was very pleasant, helpful and spot on with recommendations. The "helping out bartender" was unreal. He whipped me up some magic potions, off menu. He even presented it to me at the table. The lamb Tagiatelle was amazing. My husband loved the trout. My son said the flat iron was Ok, not as great as the lamb. The flatbreads are out of this world. One thing left to say...Dark Chocolate Creme brulee! Go, go now."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "We went to this restaurant and we were very pleased. The wait staff ws very knowledgeable about the menu and the food was outstanding. Would definitely return."
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "I met friends to catch up over drinks and snacks. The cocktail menu is very interesting--everything is new, creative and unusual--and the result is fantastic! The quail eggs are awesome, and so are the flatbreads. "
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "Enjoyed tremendously. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. Would recommend without hesitations and would definitely come back again. We specially liked the Mushroom Flat bread, the Cornish Hen and the Seared Scallops"

  • "We went late but were met with a smile with the hostess. Had great service. The food was incredible!"
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "The food was amazing. We didn't get too creative with the drinks though it seemed like Wine Aficionados would be happy. She had the scallops, I had the Schnitzel. The breading on the schnitzel was so great. We also had the Bruschetta for an appetizer, also amazing. Our waiter seemed to know someone else there and was a bit distracted. We had to ask him for a couple things multiple times. The ambiance was very trendy. My date and I were celebrating a special occasion and had a romantic evening. A table on the other side of the restaurant was celebrating a birthday. They were loud, but because the setup was well laid out, we weren't bothered at all. "

  • "We visited 1kept for the first time on Saturday night (party of 4). We arrived at 8:30 (the time of our reservations) and were told that the table wasn't quite ready. This was fine - there were seats at the bar, we got some drinks. However, we were kept waiting until 9:25 - nearly AN HOUR after our reservation time. To the hostess's credit, she did update us a couple of times while we were waiting. But 55 minutes with a reservation? And there weren't any other guests waiting. The food was good, although it's not a large menu and they were out of two of the entrees. Then there was a problem with the bill (an extra charge showing up - glad we checked!). I might try it again, but I won't go back if I have another ridiculous wait."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "This was my first time here after having heard lots of great thing about it. It definitely lived up to the hype! Delicious, unique food...the watermelon and feta flatbread was great, the breaded chicken amazing!!! Plus they had a great drink menu as well. And I loved the vibe of the place. A great way to spend a Friday or Saturday night. Can't wait to go back!!!"

  • "I have been here several times. Every item I have tried at the restaurant has been fantastic. You can't go here without getting the deviled quail eggs. The menu is always changing and each dish is as good as the last. "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "First time at 1kept was a pleasant surprise all-around. Service was attentive and good. Menu provides ample selection yet each dish that arrived at our table was unique -- and resulted in a clean plate. The atmosphere is exactly what we wanted for our group to enjoy our conversation in a really cool non-traditional space. I'm not a restaurant-repeater but we'll go back!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "I have dined at 1Kept several times and it just gets better and better. The beet salad was excellent and the red fish hit all the right notes. I haven't had anything I didn't love. This is saying quite a lot because we drive from the far north suburbs to eat here."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "My girlfriends and I really enjoyed 1Kept. All 5 of us with highly recommend it!"
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "Screwy way to park and enter restaurant (the old Toulouse), but the ambiance was much nicer than expected, the seating more comfortable and the food was very good to excellent. and the variety on the short menu was sufficiently varied for each of us. We'll be back!"
