    I go to Elevation 2-3 times/year because of the wonderful view at sunset. I've learned to enjoy the view while tolerating the food...until now. They've changed...FOR THE BETTER. The food was good, the wine list is now decent and you cannot beat the airstrip at sunset watching the planes take off and land. My fiancee and I decided last night that we're going to go monthly to Elevation...and that is a shocking statement based on what they've been in the past. We had a thoroughly enjoyable meal, wonderful service and a great time.

    We went with another couple that hadn't been there in a long time and once agian the food was loved by all. Two people had steaks, cooked perfectly. The others had salmon and mahi-mahi. We all shared the entrees and determined we all had winners. We tried a couple of Nitro Margaritas which were great, as well as the key lime pie and the bread pudding. Luke, has been our server the last two times we've visited and he was everything you'd want your server to be; personable, knowledgable and engaging.

    We were extremely happy with our server, Savannah. She was very attentive and helpful which made our experience MUCH better!! We prefer sitting upstairs but there was yet another private party going on so we ended up having to sit downstairs again. The food was very good - the salmon was great and so was the steak. We had the rock shrimp as an appetizer and it was pretty good also. ALWAYS get the nitrogen margarita! It's awesome!

    Table for 4 on a Friday night was a success. I especially loved the nitrogen martinis/margaritas that were made at the tables. It was definitely a show for all. All the food was prepared well, and seasoned perfectly. I had the blackened shrimp fettuccine with a side of sauteed spinach. My husband's filet mignon was also cooked perfectly. I would definitely go back again.

    I had heard that this was a good restaurant so I decided to try it out. The pre-dinner drinks are good and quite fun as the liquid nitrogen adds some adventure to the drinks. Since it is named "chop house" I had intended to order a steak but the beef brisket looked so good I couldn't resist. It was tender and delicious. The calamari was good too.

    Although the nitrogen margarita was awesome, be aware-- the chicken Parmesan has HAM in it, though the menu says nothing about it but, mentions every other ingredient. The waitress was very kind about it, but the manager never came over to apologize or see how we were. Disappointing.

    Ordered the special which was grilled trout. It came out with the wrong sides. The waiter took it back and it came out with the correct sides but was now so well done it was crunchy. Took a while to get the waiters attention. He apologized and asked me if I wanted something else, I said I would like the trout just done the way it should be. He said no problem. By the time it came out my husband was completely finished with his dinner and waiting for me. It was really good when it finally came out. No one from mgmnt came over to apologize or offer a discount or dessert.

    We had wanted to try this restaurant for years. We picked our 27th wedding anniversary. I wish we had chosen someplace else. The restaurant was "good" but nothing to go out of our way for. The steak had some sauce that was not pleasant to the taste buds....even though the steak was very good. The ribs were nothing to write home about. We tried the Sangria and it also was disappointing. I could have gotten a better meal at Longhorns for half the price. The place has an identity crisis....white table clothes trying to be upscale with ESPN playing thru the place trying to target a sports bar for the pilots. We decided to leave and have dessert somewhere else that we knew we would enjoy.

    We recently held a birthday Sunday brunch at Elevation. The group consisted of 17 people, some babies and children. The children were entertained by the planes, the food was great and the service commendable. We waited a little longer for our food than I would have liked but we were a large group so it was understandable.

    Elevation Chophouse offers great views of the Kennesaw airport while providing an upscale experience and food. My favorite are their Cesar salads and Ribeye steaks! I love watching the enthusiastic stares in the younger children's eyes as aircraft taxi past the windows, or a buiz jet parks up front.

    Steak was excessively salty. Drinks were overpriced. Service was very slow and inattentive. Annoying children at table across the aisle kept pushing behind us and bumping our chairs to get closer to the windows so they could see the planes. Although I know this wasn't Elevation's fault, if I come back I'll make a reservation for a later hour to avoid this.

    We were warned by our server, who was outstanding, that the kitchen was behind schedule. She wasn't kidding. Our 1:30 lunch wasn't brought to the table until 3 pm. When the food did arrive, they had forgotten the appetizer and two of the sides. Additionally, they served everyone but me. I had to wait another 10 minutes for my salad. While they were very quick to remove forgotten items from the bill, there is really no excuse for that kind of service. The food was wonderful, and our server was very attentive and professional. It's a mixed review. I'll eat here again... I'll never bring a guest.

    We were a party of 8 and had made a reservation weeks in advance. I received a call days in advance to confirm my reservation. However when we arrived 20 minutes early for our reservation time and checked in with the hostess we had to wait an additional 20 minutes past our reservation time. Then when we were finally shown to our table, we were shown to a 6 top. We had to wait additional time for a larger table to be cleared. Standing around in the dining room. It was embarrassing. Also, a high chair was requested. We were told they were out of high chairs at the moment. Had to wait on that, too. When the high chair finally came, the safety buckle was broken. The food was overlooked. Omelette was dry, burger had to be sent back. Yikes.

    Our reservations were for 8:00 for a party of 7 and upon arrival we were seated immediately. The seating was very comfortable and everyone had elbow room (another words we were not put at a table designed for 6). Our server was delightful and very attentive and the food was delicious - everyone was served at the same time and the orders were served as requested. The wait staff worked as a team and were very attentive. We will return to the restaurant.

    We arrived right on time for our reservation but the hostess seemed to be having issues seating my wife and I and the couple before us. However the fried shrimp meal and filet meal that we got were very tasty. We especially enjoyed the special margaritas... Made with liquid nitrogen .... Very cold n much like a sorbet.... We enjoyed our dinner. On the way out the door the hostess ignored our departure(she was busy chatting with a waitress) and didn't say thank you or come back soon. Obviously the hostess was new and didn't know exactly how to treat customers. Still it was loads of fun.

    Picked Elevations for a Father's Day dinner based on the recommendations of friends. My first impression wasn't good... the interior needs a face lift, BAD. Water on the floor near the bar, questionable cleanliness, menus the size of encyclopedias and booths that look like they've taken a good beating; not at all what I expected from a steakhouse. I stayed reluctantly but I'm glad I did. The food is great! The service is great! The owners just need to thoroughly clean the restaurant and reinvest in a new floor and new booths/tables and chairs. Food and servers get a solid 10, ambiance is great looking out on the tarmac, but the interior gets a 5 (and I'm being kind with that).

    Our dinner for two last evening at Elevation Chophouse and Skybar was a delightful experience! The staff members were friendly and our server was outstanding; she was very attentive and efficient as well as pleasant and fun. Our food was delicious and the atmosphere was relaxing with a lovely view of Kennesaw Mountain and planes landing/taxiing across the tarmac. It was my first time to dine there. (I used a Groupon certificate.) I/we will definitely visit Elevation again and gladly pay full price for a fun time and great food!

    We dined here for our anniversary, which was on a Tuesday night. Our reservation was early (6:00 p.m.), so there were only a couple of other tables occupied while we were there. It was raining and stormy on the night we were there, so there was not much activity on the airstrip. But the restaurant is all windows on one wall and has great views, if anything had been going on. My husband and I both had the Beef Brisket, and it was delicious! It was, also, a very generous serving. The drinks were reasonably-priced, as was our dinner. Our waitress was friendly and our meal came out quickly, but we waited quite awhile after we had finished eating for her to see if we wanted to order dessert or were ready for the check.

    Food was good although you can find meal as good for less. My salmon was very good but appetizer was best item we had. While waiting at the bar we ordered a drink from their menu but the bartender clearly didn't know how to make it as kept referring back to the menu for ingredients. When we finished the appetizer I ordered a martini which never made it's way to our table, had to ask another waiter for water, and there was a mix up with my girlfriend's side order. We were compensated by the delivery of three small strands of asparagus (on the house) and a card for a free dessert or drink on our next visit. We did enjoy the view of small planes landing and taking off and while the food was good we'll be giving the card to someone else.
