    Fish Market is the best. We always share the blue crab bisque and the black grouper plus a spicy tuna roll. Superb And Hayden was a Buckhead Life pro in his service.

    Consistent well prepared dishes but had the same problems experienced during the last couple of visits here: slow service and absolutely no backup from the busser team. Plates not cleared, no bread, lacking water refills. But the biggest problem? FILTHY BATHROOMS!!! Both my wife and I are always scared about using them. Maybe the young managers wearing suits should check in there once and a while. They did not stop by once to check up on us and mostly were seen flirting with the hostess whose black and white striped sock of a dress was way too tight on her. Too bad too because this review should have been about the food. The lobster scampi special was so good as was their fabulous crab cake. Try the kale salad!

    We had a party of five and ordered a bottle of wine. I knew something was up when the waiter was fumbling around with the cork screw. But when he filled the first glass (after my taste portion) I knew we were in trouble. By the time he got to the 4 person there was only a very small portion. Of course I was left out. To his credit he offered another bottle, but at $58 per bottle I said don't worry about it. But I guess it was a manager that came and filled the last 2 glasses of the same wine. All was good.

    My wife and I dined on Friday evening. It took 10 minutes just to get checked in at the hostess stand for our reservation once we arrived. We waited another 15 minutes to be seated, and another 10 minutes before someone came to check on us. 15 more minutes after that for our first drinks to arrive, and by then I was not a happy camper. We ran out of water, bread, wine, and our sanity before I finally had to literally stand up and waive my arms in the air to get our server's attention. I had a heart to heart with our server where I told her the food was very good, but her service was miserable. After that things did improve, but the manager never came by to check on us. The food was all around very good.

    Quite honestly the worst service I have ever had at a restaurant. Our waitress was slow to do everything. 15 minutes after we were seated she finally took our drink order. 20 minutes after that we had our drinks. Oh wait, she had 5 out of 6. She forgot to put mine in the computer to have to made. That was just the start of it. It didn't get any better from that point on. The food was great, so at least we had that going for us. We did try another round of drinks. She did bring out 6 drinks this time. But, mine was wrong. Not typically a hard thing to fix if she would have come back to our table sooner than 20 minutes after the drinks were dropped off. When I finally got her attention all she did was blame the bartenders.

    Ruvana was fabulous. Kind and attentive. Our waters were kept filled continuously. Our plates removed promptly. Both fish dishes were very good (skate and salmon) but once again, the kale salad (also served at Buckhead Diner is over dressed. You folks really need to stop over dressing this salad. No idea why they think this salad needs to have so much dressing on it. My third time having it (first time here) and all three times tremendously wet. I take it home and add a ton more romaine to it and it's still dressed well. Other than the salad all was great.

    My Baby loves seafood and requested a good seafood restaurant for his birthday. After researching and knowing what my baby likes in seafood I decided we would try AFM for the first time. I noted in reservation the occasion was my Baby's 50th Birthday, he loves seafood, he is very good to me and deseves the best. We were running late (approx 30m), I called to notify, they said no problem. When we arrived we waited maybe 10 min, the hostess was very sweet, gave us a fabulous table and then wished my Baby a Happy Birthday, which let me know that they actually read my open table reservation. We LOVED everything about AFM. Order: octopus, seafood platter, lobster w/shrimp & scallops, complimentary birthday dessert & cheesecake! We will be back.

    Fish Market was very good, not great, & for the money we thought it could have been better. Our appetizer of Tuna Tartare was exquisite. Everything else was good. We ordered grouper that was very bland, salad ordinary, bread disappointing. Dessert of Bread pudding was served hot & was delicious. Don't know if we will return any time soon.

    Wow! Fabulous dining. The huge 40 foot fish out front makes a big promise of what is to follow inside and it delivers! The food was nothing short of spectacularly delicious and was without a doubt the star of the show. However, the interior was comfortable and suitable to the menu and had a atomosphere of elegance. The service was also excellent...just enough, not too intrusive. Atlanta Fish Market is on my list of favorites!

    The food was great, but everything else was slipshod. The noise level made conversation difficult, and the service was inattentive at best. I asked the bartender for a mojito and was told, "We don't have the mix any more." At this price point, I would have expected a real cocktail.

    Great mid price range restaurant. It was was family friendly. The fish was excellent a large variety of fresh fish to select from. You can choose from 4-5 different ways to prepare. My only negative was we had a 7:15 reservation. We arrived 15 min early got our beeper and sat in the bar. After waiting for half hr past our reservation and seeing someone seated that had only been there for five min. I checked with the host our beeper was blinking but had not been activated fully. What?? Other than that great experience.

    Extraordinary & delicious food. Our server Cory, was incredible. He had great insight into the menu & helped choose apps, entrees, dessert & a bottle wine. We thoroughly enjoyed dinner & could not have asked for a better, more knowledgeable server. Of concern was using ULTIMATE GIFT card. We were told that gratuity couldn't be applied to the card. The manager said the policy was on the card, but since it was a gift, it didn't occur to us to read the fine print. We paid the gratuity out of pocket, negating the gift aspect. Though this did not ruin how we felt about the food & service, it was a bit embarrassing & would certainly stop us from purchasing these cards as gifts. I would feel awkward knowing they would be responsible for gratuity.

    When you are spending $70 per person, there are certain expectations a restaurant should meet. Knowledgeable and attentive service is the first. While pleasant, our server knew very little. IF someone is new, I totally understand. However, have this person work with an experienced server until they are competent. The server should also know something about the wine list - again, this was inexperience at work I suspect, but it became a little frustrating. Lastly, the stemware was something I would expect from a Longhorn Steakhouse rather than one of the ATL's finer dining restaurants. That said, the food was very good - prepared exactly to order. Too bad the customer facing portion took away from the dining experience.

    Maybe I came in with high expectations...because I was ready to be blow away by something spectacular. I was not...it truly is an higher priced pappadeaux or bay breeze. The higher prices must be to pay for the fish outside and the location because the food was not all that. The service was good but nothing outstanding....overall it was just alright. I would not recommend because you can find the same quality of food and service for lesser prices.

    Ate here for my boyfriend's birthday and selected this restaurant because we've heard great things about it. I have a special diet so my choices were very limited. We were sat quickly at a table with a great view. My boyfriend really liked the dish he ordered but I had to send mine back because it was very bland. The waitress was very professional and very patient considering how picky I was Overall no complaints, nice atmosphere and great staff

    We came as a party of four with reservations on a Friday night. Half of our party was 15 minutes late, but the hostess was very kind and accommodating (hence the two-star rating, as the rest of the experience was poor). We had two waiters at our table, but service was incredibly mediocre and inattentive. The food was just OK and expensive - we brought our own bottle of wine and had a couple cocktails/appetizers as well and we were at around $300 before tip. We really wanted to like this place, but can't in good faith recommend it due to price-point in relation to dismal service and "just alright" meals. I'm not sure I'd give it another try.

    We had reservations for 5pm (Falcons game). Well bad weather rolled in making us almost an hour late. I called and informed the hostess we were running late. She was so graciously understanding. When we arrived it was already very busy but we were seated within minutes! Our server greeted us immediately and took a drink order. I posted the garlicky clams as an app since we were staving! He came back with our cocktails and walked my wife thru the menu. He took our dinner orders and soon after, the amazing garlicky clams arrived. Our entres arrived and were equally amazing, I had the swordfish and my wife the halibut. After dinner we were brought a delicious complimentary dessert due to it bring our 16th Anniversary. Great job Chef Bobby!
