    Typically, Dania's attracts a lunch crowd but was a fantastic choice for dinner. This is an easy walk from area hotels. There were three of us and we all loved the food, ambience and especially, the service. We were treated like family and felt so welcome thanks to my new Lebanese friend. This was a business dinner and one of the most pleasurable dining experiences I've had in my career! Specialty cocktails were great as well. Check it out.

    Found this gem in downtown Atlanta and couldn't be happier. Just hope it survives as it was very quiet and in a bit of a sketchy area, but hopefully people will give it a chance. Outstanding service, very personal and charming. Lamb kebab was excellent, want to go back and try more items.

    I managed to book a table for 8 thru OpenTable on a day they actually was closed but they opened up the restaurant only for our party :-) Great customer service and great food. Nice to meet the chef in person as well :-)

    We were stuck for a restaurant that could accommodate a huge group on a Saturday night. Dania's came through and made our group feel completely welcomed. The service was great, and while the brick-oven pizzas could have come out a little quicker, the waitstaff could not have been more attentive. I had the grilled lamb chops, and they were perfectly cooked and delicious. People were raving about the pizzas and the pasta as well. Definitely recommend!

    I came into Atlanta for a work trip and stayed downtown. I decided to try Dania's for dinner since it was close by to my hotel, but was more than blown away. I love lamb chops/rack of lamb, but so few restaurants do them well. Not Dania's. They were marinated to perfection and probably the best I have eaten in ages. The portion size was good too. In my hometown, the servers are really nice, but they were so friendly at Dania's that it felt like I was at home too. Really nice and attentive. I tried another restaurant the next night for variety, but had to go back to Dania's for lamb again since it was my last night in town. Looking forward to coming back.

    So we came in to Danias for dinner for my birthday. I was greeted by the bar tender Kashlan who actually ended up being our server and bartender all together. Let me just say he really made my birthday experience all the better. We started off with calamari and both had kabobs. I had the chicken and he had the lamb. Both were fantastic! To finish Kashlan brought me out a slice of chocolate cake with ice cream and a candle which I thought was really nice of him although it didn't end there. He also gave us both glasses of champagne with a flower in each that were edible! (That was a first) This place was an absolute pleasant suprise. Even though he had other people to attend to he made sure we were happy. I hope to come back again soon!

    Fantastic food, but the wait staff were terrible. We were the only table in the restaurant and it took 20 minutes for terrible drinks to come from the bar and then another 40 minutes jus for appetizers.

    My daughter and 11 of her friends had dinner at your restaurant this past Saturday before attending their Prom. It was fantastic from what I was told. They loved their server and the food was great. They would eat there again in a heartbeat. Thanks, Ann Alberstadt

  • We made reservations and where
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 4/6/2013
    We made reservations and where quick to sit down. After 15 min of looking over the menu, no one came by our table. The people sitting next to us said it had been 20 minutes and they hadn't received their drinks that they did order. Beautiful space but no service.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 12/8/2012
    We had reservations on a Saturday evening, and we were the only ones in the restaurant! That made us a bit apprehensive, but the food variety was good for a group of meat eaters and vegetarians alike-something for everyone. The chef was able to accommodate requests easily. Would definitely recommend this if you are looking for good food and good service.

  • We should have been suspicious
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 1/6/2012
    We should have been suspicious when they were so eager for our large party to come. The website looked great and promised live music and belly dancing. On the website, it looks like a two-story jazz club. They must have paid a lot for Photoshop and a fiction writer because the website was a hoax. When they said they could accommodate 20 people, all they meant was we could fit in the restaurant, and barely at that. One server and the cook was the bartender. Not enough tables to pull them together to seat us and major construction in the front of the store. The food was edible at best. I was embarrassed that I invited people there. I will never go again and neither will any of my party. The should be removed from open table.

  • Terrible New Year's Eve Experience
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 12/31/2011
    We decided on this restaurant because it was New Year's Eve and we wanted to walk to see the Peach Drop. The first issue was that we made a reservation and they had trouble getting us a table. That is a huge turnoff. Next, the restaurant seemed full, but not overly crowded, and the wait staff was super overwhelmed. Had it not been for a nice hostess who decided to wait on us, we would have had no service. In fact several tables around us left after no one acknowledged them for 20-30 minutes. I felt like I was in someone's home and they were throwing a terrible party. The food wasn't that great, some of it was cold and not warmed all the way through. The drinks sizes were smaller when we ordered a second round and no one could explain.

    Food was tasty but not worth the price tag in my opinion. Service was painfully slow and did not take care of requests correctly the first time which compounded the pace of service.

    Dined on 10/14/2011
    It was nearly deserted when we were there at 8:00 on a Friday night for dinner. Four or five other people showed up later, but otherwise, there was nothing going on there. The food was OK (although I had hoped to find more Mediterranean options on the menu), the waitress was nice, but the place definitely had a run down look to it. Too bad. It was probably awesome at one time.
