  • "I always have a great time when I go to BarOne ATL. The food is delicious, the service is great, and the DJ is always on point. Peter Thomas you did that!!!"

  • "Contrary to previous reviews, my experience at Bar ONE was terrific. The food was excellent, the serving sizes was appropriate, the DJ on Saturday was jammin on the old school. Overall my experience was good with the except for a bridal party that got a little loud and out of control and the hostess that should have been more attentive to the guess walking through the door. When I arrived I had to approach her not knowing if she worked there or not. In others she was not attentive and was uninviting. Overall I had a great time and will return on my next visit to the ATL."

  • "Huge dissapointment with the waitress; food; and complete set up; I've never in all my years of fine dining 5 stars, etc have I ever been told that a gratuity was mandatory!! Never! I still think that is something that needs to evaluated on the validity of it; however if the waitress had paid a little attention perhaps it would not make the bad food; lack of regard for silverware; water; and food such a deal breaker. V- Dallas, Texas"

  • "We waited in the valet line for 25 minutes , just sitting in our car and the guy told us we could not self park. Then we got inside , there was no hostess to greet us, a waiter walking by told us to go find a seat ! We just sat down at not even a real table . After 15 minutes, my friend walked to a hostess who was too busy texting on her cellphone to look up and give eye contact . She told us , just wait , someone will come to your table. We waited another 15 minutes and finally we left to go to 255 tapas where we got served immediately . Bar one just lost money for horrible service . Don't expect this to be a normal restaurant , I think it's a club ."

  • "6 of my girlfriend's and I traveled from Charleston, SC for our semi-annual weekend retreat. Bar One was a must visit attraction on our list. The food was Excellent, the atmosphere was right, the music was on point and the ambiance was set!!! Overall, we enjoyed ourselves. I must say the only down point of our night, was when we were asked to move from where we were sitting, because someone else had reserved the spot for a birthday party. Understandable, if we were told this when we booked, and we wouldnt have been caught off guard. Between the 7 of us, we patronized very, very, well and it was just not very tasteful how it came across. Nevertheless, we would visit Bar One again. "We love Peter&Cynthia"❤"

  • "My evening at Bar One was good. My only issues were the size of the venue and the serving size of the food compared to the price."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "The Food was so good and I enjoyed every bite but the service was the worst ever. took 45 minutes to get a drink from the bar and they didn't have what I want. took 40 minutes to get out food and another 30 just to get the bill so we can leave. I would have enjoyed my birthday if the service was so slow."

  • "Didnt care for the seating, I was sat so far away from everything at a location where I had reservations while there was a live band, the other thing is I didnt expect a cover charge when I made reservations; we should've been informed."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "bar One is owned by a Reality Atlanta Housewife, I have glanced at the show, hmmm, not saying much, neither did this spot. The live band was great, the furniture in the lounge, very uncomfortable, the chairs a over-sized coupled with a low table making it hard to eat, food was good. I am sure that this being said, maybe Cynthia will sit in one of the chairs and try and eat, crouched over a table 3 feet from the floor....not sexy. Also, I can understand paper napkins in the bar, but a nice linen napkin in the lounge area would be great, just a little touch of class. It's all in a name...or nah."

  • "My friend and I went to Bar One on Saturday July, 25, 2014. We had a great time!!!! The hostess was very nice and our waitress was also. We even had the pleasure of meeting Peter Thomas and his brother Earl. They were very nice and pleasant individuals. We will definitely be coming to the locations! Love Bar One in Atl!!!!! This experience is one I will never forget!!!! Sharonita Wade Sharonita24@yahoo.com"

  • "I was apart of a party of 4, on Friday, 7/18/14 @ 8:00 pm. The restaurant was not overcrowded. The server we were assigned was forgetful and slow. The rum punch needs more of a punch. The DJ needs to work on the mix and transition of music. We had a good vibe going then he would switch. Then play a song no one is dancing (not even in their chairs), he continues the song. Other than that we had a good time, the atmosphere had a great vibe. The ambiance is awesome for a date night with someone special. Not worth all the hype."

  • "We had reservations for 7:15. After being seated we waited quite a long time just to be recognized. Slow service followed. Waitress would disappear for 10 to 15 min stretches. The restaurant wasn't at all busy during this time. Food was over salted and lacking bold flavors. Overall a big disappointment."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "None of the items in the menu were available. What's the purpose of a menu if you can't provide the items? The service was great but then again they had nothing to serve. I won't be returning."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "My sister's and I were on vacation. We had heard about the bar before so we decided to try it out. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will go back with no hesitation. Our server was absolutely amazing! If you haven't been go book now, you won't regret it!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Live music was great! If you like spicy foods, that's your spot. Drinks were good but Indont expect to pay $12 for a lemon drop martini and it is served in a flute.Very small and extremely hot. I would hate to see if filled to capacity. Overall, the birthday girl enjoyed."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Heard a lot of things about Bar One. Some good some bad but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by what I experienced. I made reservations got there on time and was seated right away. Our waitress, Autumn was very alert and attentive. I had the jerk chicken quesadillas and my friend had the oxtails soup and the jerk wings. The food was delicious. We washed it down with some cocktails. I would definitely go back. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Had an 8pm reservation but was told we could only sit @ our table for 2 hours if we sat in the lounge area, the hostess said if we sat @ the cocktail tables near the bar we wouldn't have to move and could still hear the DJ. Our waitress was persistent about getting our order and even made some suggestions. Jerk wings were dry so we replaced it with the hot/honey wings which was much better choice. Low & behold around 10pm the waitress closed our tab out without us saying we were finished and the hostess came over and said she needed our table for another party! By this time we had already decided to leave because we didn't like the vibe of the place so we didn't argue with her. They also had nerve to be charging @ the door when we left!"

  • "We had a group of 10 and had an awesome time. We had reservations in which they ran behind but it didnt bother us. The music was on point!!!! We couldn't eat from trying to dance! Lol. I believe in trying things out for myself because sometimes bad reviews will cause you miss out on great fun. ALL of the staff were professional and courteous! You should go!!!!"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The food & drinks are overpriced for the amount you get. We had reservations & we were asked to move after 2 hours, eventhough we were still eating & drinking. I think it's bad customer service to ask your customers to move when they're still spending money!! We left & went to a Wet Willie's!!! That was my first & last time at bar One!"

  • "I had been to the restaurant before, but this second visit was a bit different. The food took longer than expected and necessary, and it was not as impressive as the first time I had it. Still loved the flavor of the food and appreciated the experience. "

  • "I live in Atlanta and never saw the urgency to go. A friend was visiting from out if town and basically begged me to go. I grabbed a few extra friends and headed out. WE HAD A BLAST! Oh and our waitress was vibrant, knowledgable and accommodating. I can't remember her name but she is taking acting lessons and kind of reminds me of Tiona Taylor. Will definitely be back. "

  • "For this lounge to get the publicity it is getting from the television show the service level does not match up. We had a reservation for 9pm. We arrived at 8:50pm we were promptly seated however a waitress did not come take a drink order for 20mins. One waitress came after she had seen us sitting there for about 10mins to light the candle but did not mention anything about someone coming to assist us at all. Once a waitress finally did come to take our drink order it took another 10mins before she came back to take our meal order. The food was good but the service ruined the experience. The drinks were watered down. Peter's Rum Punch was a bust. The lounge was not busy so there was no reason for the long wait times. "

  • "I brought my friend visiting from CA to Bar One on Saturday evening. It was at 7pm, before it gets too crowded. We enjoyed the food, however, the service was poor. The waitress wasn't welcoming or friendly at all. She seemed irritated with any question, although we had few. Not a great experience for someone who was so excited to be there. I was a little embarrassed. In any case, the food was great and drinks were good. I just wish they'd up their service standards."

  • "We arrived on Saturday, April 12 late for our reservation due to time change; coming from Louisiana forgot about hour difference. Even after arriving almost a hour late, the hostess and manager was very accommodating. We were still seated, everyone was very friendly, and the waitress provided wonderful recommendations. When in Atlanta again, will definitely return and tell all my friends and family. Oh and loved the valet parking, definitely gave him a tip!"

  • "We reserved seats for dining online and didn't know that it was a 2hr. maximum for seating. I guess my problem was that it was in the bar area so when we got done eating we were having drinks and listening to the music and then we were asked to get up and had to stand so they could accommodate other guest. They should've let us know about the seating so we could have maybe sat at the bar to begin with..."

  • "My date arrive to the restaurant to complimentary valet, which was great. We walk in and the music and vibe was right. Very cool laid back restaurant. This where it gets bad. We was there for 20 minutes before anyone acknowledge that we was there. Then after we got acknowledge, we waited additional 15 for a waitress! The waitress beg us to but No!"

  • "My friend and I enjoyed the tapas selections. We had fried plantains which were incredible!! Jerk chicken with mango salsa was delicious!!! The waitress's were very attentive and were very knowledgable about the menu selections. My only issue was that there were table time restraints, a two hour maximum per reservation table. #weretheydothatat?! However once we questioned this; we were invited to join another parties table. "Thanks to the owner making us feel welcome and appreciated!!" So again!!! We had an awesome experience!! Gold star for barOne!!!"

  • "The overall ambiance of Bar One was great, but the service was horrible. The waitress was very sweet, but she kept forgetting to get things we would as for such as our drinks and napkins. Plus, for some reason the grill chicken wings and brown stew chicken was slightly burnt when it was served. The first time I went here, every thing was exceptional, but after last night I don't think I'd come back."
