- Probably won't be backOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 11/7/2014Reviews were positive so decided to give it a try. While veggie sides and dessert were good, I left overall dissapointed on food. Not sure I would come back. Pricey and definitely not lived up to my expectations.Special Features:
- Has changed :(OpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 11/7/2014Used to be my favorite restaurant but not anymore! Requested certain kind of table and they did not honor request. Food was not nearly as good as it used to be.
- mikeDined on 11/6/2014I,m not a meat eater, so did not sample any of the meat specialties they are famous for. The meat eaters in the group loved the tongue and the heart they had and they loved the charcuterie plate. I had the shrimp appetizer, which was excellent, moist shrimp, with the tail off so was very easy to eat.plenty to eat as a main course. Did not like the crab appetizer. The roasted vegetables were delicious . We have sweet tooths so had chess pie, Madeline's, monkey bread, pots de creme. I think we liked the Madeline's best. They were warm, something about a fresh out of the oven dessert that entices my sweet tooth. Monkey bread was delicious too with the small container of chocolate. The chess pie was very rich, but we ate every morsel.Special Features:

- Nice Ambiance and Great ServicetrynewplacesDined on 10/24/2014Had Friday Night reservations which in all honesty you probably didn't need to have. Restaurant was on the low moderate side of being busy. Bar side seemed to be much more intimate and slightly more packed. We were seated promptly and service was great throughout the evening. The server did note that they had new chef that had only been there about a week so the menu had changed. In my opinion the food left quite a lot to be desired. Overall was a nice dining experience the noise level away from the bar does tend to increase so note if you are sensitive to noise. Was a nice try but not a repeat for us.Special Features:
- Great for discerning customersgoodatpancakesDined on 10/22/2014great place, service and food. Interesting diverse menu. Amazing food. My group tried many new things and really enjoyed it. Highly recommend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great spotChrisDined on 10/18/2014What a cool spot. First time visitor and I will return. Changing menu weekly so it is hard to get the same thing twice.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great mealBillDined on 10/17/2014I was with a group of three others who went to Abattoir on Friday night, We really enjoyed ourselves. Great food and ambience. Not too loud. Tom our server did an exceptional job and was patient in answering all of our questions. One in our group did not eat red meat and there were a surprisingly large number of options for her. Strongly recommend this place.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- fine diningdinerplusDined on 10/11/2014We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Abattoir. The food was excellent and the service very good. Our waitress was well versed on the menu.Special Features:
- Worth the driveNoniDined on 10/10/2014Drove from Jacksonville, Florida to spend the weekend in Atlanta. First on our list was a visit to Abattoir, highly recommended by our son who is a chef in Toronto. Was worth the drive. Food was creative(they use all parts of the animal), delicious and fresh which is not surprising as they source locally. Our compliments to the chef and creators of the menu and restaurant. Would definitely dine there again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- BtuckDined on 10/8/2014We had been to Abattoir several times before but found this to be a very different experience. While the ambiance and service was still great, the change of menu was disappointing. The transition from an "appetizer/entree" menu to more of a tasting menu was not what we were looking for. It seemed we spent way more money for less food and really didn't enjoy what we ate. Overall, it was pricy and average compared to our previous experiences.Special Features:

- Love that Pork ChopyorkshirepuddingmanDined on 9/30/2014The fried pork chop at this restaurant was unbelievable. First off it was about a foot long, bone in chop. Initially appeared to be from some sort of dinosaur, so be prepared to have other diners refer to you as "Fred" as in Flintstone. They kept the marble of fat on the edge and then fried it. So the edge tasted like crispy bacon. It was really far and away the largest and best pork chop I have ever eaten. Really could be shared by two. One of the neighboring tables asked us about it and then ordered multiple chops for their table. The server Nathan was outstanding too. We want to go back soon.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- So good!foodnerdDined on 9/26/2014A friend and I went to Abattoir on a trip to Atlanta. The food was flawless. We started with the Morcilla with olive and potato fondue, and it was phenomenal. As my friend pointed out, it takes a lot to make either one of us stop talking and we sat in silence for a few minutes with the food. The atmosphere and the service were both great on the night we were there. Friendly, simple, and really focused on the quality of the food.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent food.Jojo1Dined on 9/25/2014Everything we ate was beautifully prepared from first rate ingredients. A wonderful mealSpecial Features:
- Good food and servicebustaogluDined on 9/13/2014Steak tartare was amazing. We had the Midtown restaurant menu and had the eye of Rib, it was excellent. Arugula salad was OK. Tres Leches was amazing.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fun place and fun cuisine!NdwffDined on 9/12/2014Loud vibrant and fun! Be prepared to try new twists on foods you have always enjoyed or never tried. Wait staff was attentive and very informed about the menu. We sampled several dishes,(duck, lamb sweetbreads, okra) and the charcuterie and cheese plates. Delicious!Special Features:
- Great for eating at the bar!GoddessSpeedDined on 9/10/2014My husband and I have been here several times, and have sat both at the bar and at tables in the restaurant. The noise level is lower in the bar (ceiling is lower, maybe that is why), so we prefer to sit there. The food is consistently good - this past visit I got the oxtail and with ricotta ravioli, which was delicious. My husband got the restaurant week menu, with an arugula salad, followed by pan seared trout, and finally tiramisu. It was all great (particularly the trout, which came with pozole), but the salad was a bit difficult to eat, as the leaves were whole and included the stems. So the pecans, squash, etc. ended up in the bottom of the bowl. Service is attentive without being overbearing, and it is a very beautiful space.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Meh experience for restaurant weekKSarDined on 9/9/2014I was really disappointed in the level of service and overall food. Portions were tiny and $12 for a specialty drink where it didn't seem to have any alcohol and 90% of the glass was ice and a very small glass as well. I was looking forward to trying this place and hoping it was going to be a local favorite. All in all just not impressed :(
- Great food, small portions.GeorgeATLDined on 9/6/2014Easy parking, great ambiance and great food. Fit for foodies.Special Features:
- Date Night SoptschanceDined on 9/6/2014My wife and I had a fantastic dinner here on Saturday night. Plates are small, so order a variety and enjoy! The highlights for me were the burrata (the romesco sauce was amazing) the bone marrow "scallops" and the lamb sausage. Although, all the dishes were interesting and flavorful. We will defiantly be back to try the ox tail. It was my second choice for entree sized dishes. The tartare was was outstanding as well. Service matched the quality of food and arrived as you would expect when ordering multiple plates off a tapas-style menu. Can't wait to go back!Special Features:
- Great food and service!ATPsVIPDined on 9/6/2014As always, Abattoir really impressed us with their new twists across all foods. The pork stir fry that is made with corned pork is amazing! We also enjoyed their choices for the prix fixe menu for the Midtown Restaurant week. The trout, cooked with masa on the skin was perfect, as was the quinoa with arugula, sweet potatoes and maple syrup crystals! Pops in your mouth! Tres Leche for desert, a real upscale take on this desert! And, Will, our service was wonderful with his ability to describe the dishes extremely well, giving us his impression of each dish. We'll be back soon!Special Features:
- good but loudBeccaDined on 8/23/2014Food was very tasty, though wouldn't say amazing. Nice experience, but got so loud that it was impossible to carry on a conversation without shouting.Special Features:
- small portions done wellOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 8/22/2014Abbattoir menu is set on the same platform as Bacchanalia, small portions so one can sample 4-5 items done well. The only difference being ala carte vs Prix Fixe.Special Features:
- Monkey BreadUbdawgDined on 8/22/2014We sampled a few smaller plates: crab fritter, ceci peas, charred okra, chorizo octupus. All were good to excellent. But the standout was the monkey bread. Still thinking about that warm, fluffy goodness.Special Features:
- Wonderful Night With FriendsglittleDined on 8/19/2014Abattoir is the perfect restaurant for a night out with friends. We met here for a friends going away dinner and the food and service was top notch. Our waitress was phenomenal and her suggestion of the Crab Fritter made my night. I will absolutely be returning to Abattoir many more times.Special Features:
- awsome!ScotVIPDined on 8/16/2014Food was incredible, service perfect. Still a great restaurant!Special Features:
- Great FindOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 8/15/2014Large, exciting, and varied menu. Prices seemed on the higher end for typical "small plate" restaurant, but portion size and food quality made prices very reasonable and fair. Delicious food, cannot wait to go back and try more.Special Features:
- Foodie's Will Love ItOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 8/9/2014Truly unique and delicious menu in a great space with exposed brick and ceiling open to metal roof. Despite its name, there is also a decent assortment of vegetarian options for mixed parties. Try the mole cornish hen or the eggplant dish. The shrimp confit is also a brilliant item. Entres are served on small plates and are great to share like tapas. I love this style of dining because you have the opportunity to sample many different flavors in one meal. Service was, for the most part, exemplary, with only a slight hiccup near the end of the meal, but the server was energetic and upbeat through the entire experience. The only disappointment was that they were out of a couple items we wanted to try. Will definitely go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Abattoir "slaughters" it every timeAustinMDined on 8/9/2014Abattoir, which began its life as a meat-centric haven for offal lovers, has evolved into so much more. Ingredients that are either locally grown or shipped as little as possible are treated with respect and imagination, then lovingly served in the cavernous dining room. The bar is just dark enough to be flattering and serves inspired cocktails and nibbles. The standards like the ceci (which should never again be removed from the menu-and I'm circling the wagons for the Mac & Cheese w/Bacon Jam); the small plates, up to the minute seasonal produce and magnificent, pristine meats are offered as manna from Heaven. All will delight the palate and leave a lasting impression that will have you planning your next visit before you depart.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fantastic!OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/7/2014I must first highlight our server who made the whole experience even better. I wish I remembered his name to give him credit but he was very knowledgeable and friendly! The food was very good, I wasn't a fan of the crab fritter but the gravy fries (poutine) on their menu are a must order!! And the chess pie and tres leeches cake were divine!! Will be going backSpecial Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 8/6/2014A place for meat lovers and original dish. The service was really good. We love that restaurant and try to go back every time we want to spoil ourselves!Special Features:
- Overall goodLuv2DineVIPDined on 8/2/2014The service provided Mimi was just right. We are always pleased that it is possible to find quality but reasonably-priced wines here, by the glass or bottle. We were disappointed by the empanadas - too much dough, the flavors of the fillings did *not* come through. The octopus was quite good, and the guinea hen sausage sandwich interesting. Always glad to come back!Special Features:
- Odd and Ever changing menuTheRealMealDined on 8/2/2014One would think that a restaurant whose namesake is TWO CLEAVERS would have decent choices for steak. No. This restaurant has changed it's menu so often I'm not sure why we even go anymore, since you can't rely on it. Service is always great but with 3 tiny choices for steak you are better off going to Longhorn's for your dinner. The menu is eclectic, I will give them that. Having been here at least 4x now the fact they can sell you on peppers stuffed with bone marrow alone is impressive. Wine list is fairly pathetic unless you want the entire bottle. For glass service they have about 6 choices. Weak wine list. Desserts: Forgettable, go next door or elsewhere.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Too much to readBfarr530VIPDined on 8/1/2014First visit to Abattoir and maybe we missed its heyday as the dining room was half-empty on a Friday night. Server was extremely helpful in answering many questions caused by a menu with a large number of choices but with words that mean nothing to the diner. A lot of interesting dishes but no coherent way to put the smal plates together in a logical way to form a meal.Special Features:
- The following 946 reviews are from the Abattoir reviews archive.
- Great Place for Date Nightbgh867VIPDined on 7/30/2014Abattoir has an unusual, but satisfying wine list and great food. The seasonal menu includes local sourced vegetables and meats that are prepared both interestingly and well (often, you only get one of these). I highly recommend Abattoir for a date night, but not sure it's a smart choice for younger children unless they are willing to try new things.Special Features:
- Fantastic Fresh Flavors!!!!!!!FoodloverDined on 7/26/2014Every dish exceeded my high expectations! The watermelon salad and the burrata were perfectly seasoned and presented beautifully. The Ceci peas, you had to stop yourself. The crunch and flavor were addictive! The eye of rib was perfectly prepared with the best chimmichurri I have ever had. Delicious!! The bread had a crisp crust with perfect texture. Restaurant makes you feel like you are dining at someone's amazing French country home. Tables are spaced far apart and the lighting is subtle with a lot of natural light from the windows. Going back soon, easily the best menu I have seen in 10 years. They have from the familiar to the exotic on the menu. Everyone can find their perfect meal. The desserts looked amazing!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- New menu styleIlovefood123Dined on 7/24/2014Great new menu style- more like tapas. Excellent food. Very interesting, very flavorful! Monkey bread, oxtail frites and chorizo octopus a must!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
