  • "I loved the atmosphere and the music. I had the Strawberry Peach Mojito which was delish and the Jerk Chicken and Shrimp pasta which was full of flavor!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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. "

  • "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 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 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. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "A few freinds and I visited Atlanta from Houston, TX. It was imperative that we tried out Bar One since its well known. The staff was friendly and attentive. The ambiance was cool and jazzy. And the furniture is modern and sleek.The food was really tasty. Its a great restaurant to visit."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "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..."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "It was a cute little place. Nice atmosphere...Reminded me of being in someone's living room. DJ was awesome. Service was extremely slow, but the waffles were good. Bottle service for that small of place was ridiculous. Might as well go to the club. Lounges charging club prices is crazy--especially being that it is so small and seating is lacking. Probably wouldn't return, but it worked for that particular occasion."

  • "Too smalla space. No entertainment. Nothing to do after you eat but to leave."

  • "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."

  • "Had a fantabulous time at Bar One. Food was excellent, the Service was great and the ambience was show stopping. Will definitely return."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "My group made reservations as it was a special occasion. Once we arrived, we were taken all the way to the back. Where it was cold and less scenic ,I presume they put the "nobodies" back there. Mind you, only the bar had a bunch of people. The rest of the restaurant was vacant, so there was no reason to put people in the cold back room. The waiter came to the table after about 10minutes of us being seated and immediately started complaining about her feet. She took our drink orders and starters. We did not see her again until she came back 15minutes later only to tell us that they were out of wings. She brought no drinks, nor any of the other foods that we ordered. After another 15minutes without drinks we walked out. TERRIBLE."

  • "The atmosphere was smooth and the band was great. We were able to sit before our timed reservation."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "When we finally got seated it took forever for our waitress to service us! The cocktails was OVER PRICED! The food that we wanted to order they was OUT of it! When our food did arrive, it didn't all come out at the same time! We didn't like the sitting area in the BACK which our view was the road! The music was GREAT! I will NOT be back again!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The positives: GREAT band on Fridays "Grits and Jelly" ,there was an energetic feel amongst the patrons, people looked like they were enjoying themselves and the drinks were very good. The not-so-positives: Even though the drinks were good, they were pretty pricey; the food was pretty good, but nothing great about it but priced well; our server wasn't the best, she seemed always in a rush; and the things such as the layout of the restaurant, the quality of the tables, the paint job in certain areas was a little shoddy so those things should be followed up on."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "We enjoyed out time there. The food was great but the environment was very loud, even though we sat in a reserved area. We were celebrating our anniversary and had we known, we would not have chosen bar One for this occasion. But I would gladly go there just a night out. The free valet was awesome also."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "Our server once we got to our table was not that great, and on eof my guest sent her soup back after one bite, because it was cold, and the "manager" (not sure) basically made her out to be a liar, but the music was good, and the drinks were great."

  • "I came down from nyc to celebrate my sister's 3day bday celebration and bar one was the beginning. It was great from the start. From the free valet parking, free entry, and prompt service. Our waitress showed so much hospitality. The food was great and we were even able to shake a leg for a little. We loved it, and we will return with out a doubt... Thanks!"

  • "Bar One has a very comfortable and cozy environment that makes you feel at home. The food and drinks were good and the music was very nice for the atmosphere. I would recommend Bar One for a small gathering or a romantic date night. The staff makes you feel very welcome."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "My pros: the food; Peter and Cynthia were there to meet people; our waitress Kim The cons: It was cold inside; it took quite a while to get our food; there were no heating lamps outside waiting for valet to bring my car (even though the wait wasn't that long); the address online needs the "SE" at the end. It was hard to find on my navigation."

  • "The music was great, the food was excellent and the rum punch was on point. We appreciated the richness of the food as my husband and I are of Caribbean heritage. Our waitress Autumn was great and made sure were taken care of. We would definitely go back again....very soon!"
