    I 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.

    Drove 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.

    We 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.

    yorkshirepuddingman
    Dined on 9/30/2014
    The 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.

    A 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.

    My 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.

    I 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 :(

    My 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!

    As 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!

    Truly 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.

    Abattoir, 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.

    The 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!

    One 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.

    First 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.

    Abattoir 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.

    Every 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!

    For a restaurant in this location and price point, I was disappointed with a few things: 1. Stemless wine glasses. I know it is easier to put these in the dishwasher, but it takes away from buying a Bordeaux (or any other wine). 2. Wine was not opened at the table. Our server took it to a central table to open. That was odd... 3. Our server seemed to forget our table for long stretches. We couldn't locate her the few times we needed something. 4. It was extremely loud inside. At the end of the night, you could tell that you were screaming just to be heard due to sore throats. 5. The panna cotta dessert was laughable. The plate was 65% empty. The nuts on the plate were bigger than the panna cotta.

    Found this place last minute through Open Table while trying to find a nice venue to treat relatives who had a one night layover in Atlanta and arrived at a late hour. My relatives are foodies, travel internationally and live on the West Coast; this was their first visit to Atlanta, and I wanted to impress. I personally had not been to Abbattoir, but it was on the radar since it was featured in Atlanta magazine as one of the 50 Best in town. My high expectations were met and exceeded! Beautiful restaurant, great lively location, informed/attentive service, and most importantly, GREAT FOOD!! I'm still dreaming about the Oxtail. I've already told my close friends that we will have many meals here going forward!! My relatives loved it!

    This is my 6th or 7th time there, through multiple chefs. I think Hector is a perfect fit, and they have really found their footing in the kitchen. Food is mostly solid - a few questionable seasoning / portion issues, but nitpicky stuff. Service is solid. Good staff, but took a while at a few points , and we also put in orders early that didn't come until food we ordered later had arrived. Prices also don't match quality of food. We were obscenely late for our original reservation though (we gave notice), and the restaurant was very accommodating. we also added a couple on, and no problem with that either. points. That said, the noise in this place would benefit from some work. Dampening baffles would help. It's better than day 1, but...

    As part of the Star Provision food group, I had high expectations for Abittoir and I was not disappointed. The menu is constantly changing because it is locally sourced and snout to tail, so to speak, so I would just recommend you go with your waiter's recommendations.
