A word from Downtown Kitchen
Welcome to the Downtown Kitchen. We have one goal in mind when we open our doors every day - "To do whatever it takes to create the best dining experience possible.' That means buying certified Angus beef, Ashley Farms chicken, New Zealand Spring lamb, dayboat fish and fresh local produce. We change our menus daily according to market and season availability. Our style of cooking is defined as simplicity at its best. We built the restaurant to elevate the guests' level of comfort. The bar, tables, and booths were custom-made by a local wood worker. And we searched the nation for unique works of Art to deck our walls. Music of Blues and Rock greats fill the air. Service is as important as the food. Our staff is sincere, knowledgeable and friendly. They hustle to deliver the best service around, yet take the time to remember your name and how you like your drink.

    Downtown Kitchen is our go-to place for a special dinner in Canton. The staff is more like family than service providers and we can always trust the food to be good. Plenty of choices for adult beverages and the wine list is always complete with choices for all tastes. The desserts are always anticipated because they are made by one of the servers and they change frequently. There is always something tempting to finish off a great evening.

    As my husband and I were having our first "date night" in awhile, I wanting to choose something special...and this place was it! I requested a "quaint" table, and they accommodated us with a nice corner booth. (The hostess even acknowledged that she was "waiting for us" to arrive.) Service was friendly, knowledgeable and an absolute delight. We wanted to try so many appetizers that our server recommended 1/2 portions on a couple - what a great suggestion! We tried three! For dinner, we tried the specials - bone-in pork chop and venison. DELICIOUS! For dessert, the peanut butter pie - yum!! And as an extra bonus, dress is casual - so dress up or down, whatever makes you comfortable.

    We have eaten here a number of times and the food has been excellent each time. There are few restaurants I can say this about. My filet was ordered rare and my wife ordered her hanger steak medium rare and both were cooked correctly. Baked potatoes were great! and the three vegetables we tried were also great. Entertainment is available on the second floor on weekend nights and it runs the gamut from soft to hard rock. Don't miss this restaurant.

    The food was great but unfortunately a fan in the kitchen broke which caused the entire restaurant to become so hot that we were very uncomfortable and could not wait to finish our food and leave to get some air.

    Food was ok, pricey for what you get. Our waitress was great. It was very hot in the restaurant & smokey from the kitchen- our eyes were burning. It's an open kitchen concept but their HVAC & kitchen equipment is obviously not equipped for handling the heat & smoke from kitchen. It was pretty uncomfortable.

    We tried Downtown Kitchen for the first time for a date night. We were not disappointed! The service was great, the food beyond delicious and the atmosphere very relaxing! The menu listed on open table is out dated, but Corey one of the owners was very accommodating. Prices are a little high, but so worth it. Definitely recommend!

    We enjoyed our visit dinner there last night. The food and service were outstanding. The menu is varied with additional specials. We enjoyed two of the specials, Amberjack and Filet with green chili sauce. There were both excellent. We especially enjoyed the deep fried ribs appetizer. The prices are reasonable for the quality of the food and service. We were offered the option seating downstairs for the lively atmosphere or upstairs for a quieter evening. We sat upstairs. Even though we sat (by choice) close to the bar, we enjoyed our table. We are looking forward to our next dinner.

    The menu at Downtown Kitchen was very diverse in its choices, but I had heard that their steaks were very good. That proved to be very true. I had the hangar steak and it was one of the most tender steaks I have ever eaten. Definitely would return here!

    The food was great - some items a bit pricey, but enough items on the menu to avoid them. The service is good and small town friendly, which I love. I have eaten here before with the same dining experience, but this was the first time I've gone on Saturday night. Upstairs, they have a (good) band on Saturday night and a small dance floor.... and the same "neighborhood friendliness". It's almost like going to a party in the neighborhood, except you don't have to bring anything :-)

    We are visiting Atlanta on a last minute trip and found Downtown Kitchen. My 10 year old ADORED the grilled chicken from the kid's menu. My 13 year old devoured his filet and LOVED the garlic mashed potatoes. The hangar steak wontons are a fabulous appetizer. My husband and I enjoyed the fish special and the lamp special that night. Both were delicious. Our waiter was attentive, helpful and thoughtful. We got to meet the chef and let him know how much we enjoyed our meal. Wish we lived closer so we could dine here more often. We will have a favorite spot to visit whenever we venture to Atlanta now.

    I spent a birthday dinner there with relatives and there's a great atmosphere for a Saturday night. The appetizer of fried mushrooms was very good, the red pepper/tomato bisque was good, and my steak was only fair, sadly. The cut seemed sub-par for the price, and the cook was given "good-medium" as an instruction but it came out rare overall. We were in a hurry or I would have sent it back, but still it was good because of the pairing with the bleu cheese I ordered separately. Wine list is good, service was good. I'm hoping they strive for excellent, but they are worth a try.

    Went with my daughter and son-in-law to celebrate my birthday and was very disappointed. Ordered a filet mignon - disappointing. I have never had one (which is all I order when I order a steak) with fat and gristle in it - couldn't even chew it. And on top of that, it was $36! Nothing was mentioned about my birthday even though it was listed when we made the reservation. Won't go back!

    It's been a few years since I've dined at Downtown Kitchen. I was worried that it wouldn't live up to my amazing experience last time. To my delight, it was even better. The've pared down the menu to allow them to have more specials. The core menu is a combination of essential steakhouse fare with staples of a southern fine dining experience. Our food was amazing and our server was perfect. I can't wait to go back.

    If you went just for the bread and sun dried tomato balsamic dip it would be a night to remember. A great selection of locally brewed beers. Excellent dried aged beef and fresh fish entrées are just a few of the basics. Don't get away with trying the tomato caprese salad. Unique specials every night. And some of the best wait staff in the business. This restaurant is a win win scenario for lunch or dinner.

Our eating area was kept well bussed by Mike and all the other servers constantly sweeping through the restaurant to move things we were done with.. would strongly suggest if you are in the area that you consider it.
