The Iberian Pig
Good foodThe food is great from the Iberian pig to the chorizo sausage.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceOur waiter made excellent suggestions as far as tapas go. One of the dishes we didn't care for at all, and he didn't even charge us.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful time as always.wonderful time as always. The food was phemonemal. I would recommend making reservations. they pay off. will definitely be back!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMnow THIS is a restaurant!We made a reservation on a Tuesday night and the place was packed. The host recommended that we
Wait at the bar while our table was being prepared. We ordered a french martini and the Iberian old fashioned.
If you love food, and REAL cocktails, this is the place for you. The food was nothing short of amazing. Nothing pretentious...just
pure, honest food. We had several plates from the tapas menu and every plate left us wanting more. I can't imagine a palate that this
Place could not satisfy. (The mac n cheese is serious, and that means something) The server was extremely friendly
And knowledgeable. I scored serious brownie points from my gf by taking her here! As is such...anything that says pork belly, get it!
Hands down, on my top 5 list.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great Treat!It is always a great treat to be here. The food is amazing and the Service is great! These are great people who are wonderful at what they do!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceI was a big fan of the Iberian Pig. Dinner started with great cocktails. It was very crowded and noisy at the bar, we don't mind the noise, so it was not an issue with us. The bartenders were friendly and very attentive. Dinner was fantastic, our waiter was energetic and friendly. Our food came quickly and everything was great.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great place allThis is a great place all around while taking my mother out for dinner to celebrate Mother's Day, while visiting from the west coast. While tapas have been considered cool and trendy for some time, most places do it poorly. Everything we ordered was excellent. The service was great as they were both attentive and excellent at providing recommendations. The only 2 downsides were that we a) had to wait 30 minutes after our reservation time to be seated b) they were slow to provide the bill. I would definitely go here again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything we expected... and thenWe've been wanting to try this place for a while, and finally made it.
Service was outstanding! From the hostess to the manager - all went
well above and beyond. Food was delectable. So many great flavors.
We ordered the pork cheek tacos, burger with eggplant fries, veal shank
ravioli, bacon wrapped dates, asparagus with egg, foiench toast w/ foie gras
and churos with the best chocolate sauce I've ever tasted for dessert.
Will most definitely be back, just as soon as I work off the 2 lbs I gained.
(only recommendation would be to have more lighter fare menu items,
as these were all very rich and heavy, but sooo delicious!!)
Thank you for surpassing our expectations!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was outstanding and theFood was outstanding and the service was quite good. Would highly recommend to everyone visiting Atlanta. The location is perfect.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Anniversary Dinner!We chose Iberian Pig to celebrate our 4th anniversary and it was fantastic! Our server was friendly and knowledgeable and the ambiance was busy and energetic but quiet enough to have a conversation. Menu highlights for me were the bacon wrapped dates, the asada flatbread (I forget the full name) and the flourless chocolate cake. Plus, they serve dancing goats coffee (my favorite). We'll definitely be back for sure.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Noisy Silk PurseI was with a large party at the "Pig" this weekend and they sat us in the upstairs dining area. The food was excellent, as usual, and the service was quite good. It's very pork heavy as the name would imply, with lots of smoky bacon as a main component of the food, even some of the cocktails. The gripe I have is with the upstairs space; the ceiling is relatively low with hard surfaces, so the noise level is so high that you have to yell to carry on a conversation. Our waiter literally shouted the specials at us and I could barely hear him. Not a great place for conversation while dining.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMIberian Pig always a winner!We go to the Pig for special occasions such as our anniversary or birthdays. We've been going for years and have never had anything negative either with the food or service. We also take out of town guests to the Pig.
The house Old Fashioned with maple syrup and bacon infused rye is outstanding! We've had a good portion of the menu and can honestly say every single item has been amazing it its presentation and taste. The cabrito (braised goat) is especially delicious - not a hint of gaminess. The octopus is amazing!
The staff is well trained and attentive. Leigh Ann the manager is excellent at guest relations and of course the kitchen led by Chad is glorious.
You'll spend $100 per couple, but it will be worth every penny!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Iberian Pig is one ofThe Iberian Pig is one of our favorite restaurants, and our most recent visit did not disappoint. We love the intimate but bustling atmosphere, the personalized service, and the delectable small plates. Our server made great recommendations for wine pairings, and the entire dining experience was a delight.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food and service.Very good food and service. The room was too crowded and I constantly had to move my chair because I was getting bumped as people passed by my table. We didn't have any privacy as my guest and I tried to have a conversation.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Pig Delivers...Went to the Iberian Pig with some friends from out of town and they loved it. We had just about every tapas on the menu and enjoyed all of the. The star of the night was the carne flat bread and bacon wrapped dates. You just can't go wrong with this place!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA Taste to RememberFirst timers! We ordered practically every tapas on the menu. We had a group of 6 people dining. Plates we're very tasteful, interesting, and great for sharing. We will definitely be back!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Pig Always DeliversI've been to Iberian Pig more times than I can count, and as always this was a top notch visit. Service was great, food delicious. We enjoyed the bacon-wrapped dates, an old favorite, and also tried the pork belly for something new. I'm going to have to work that into the rotation, as it was excellent. The asparagus with a poached egg and lemon hollandaise was very good, and I requested some bread to sop up the delicious eggy sauce mixture. I'll return again and again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGirls night outA Friday night out with the girls was fabulous at Iberian Pig! We shared a bunch of tapas-- loved the variety of food and it was all delicious. Had a glass of the "pretty darn good" red (the cheapest one) and it was great too! It was a little loud in there, but so were we :) It's the perfect place to meet up after work and catch up with friends5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAuthentic, Spanish style tapas.Authentic, Spanish style tapas. Its all good! You could safely order anything and not be disappointed.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBest. Restaurant. Ever.My wife and I recently went here for our 16th anniversary. I noted our anniversary on our Open Table reservation, and the restaurant staff went out of their way to make sure we had a great time. They saved a special table for us, and even had a card for us signed by what looked to be everyone on the staff! Excellent food, great drinks, and a fantastic server. I highly recommend this restaurant!!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, but a bit noisyThe food was fantastic and something you can't get at any other place. The service was great. We went with friends, but it was a bit noisy, so a little hard to hear each other. It was a busy Saturday night, though. Also, would have liked a few more vegetables on the menu, but I will definitely be going back for dinner again soon.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWaitress fantastic-helpedWaitress fantastic-helped us navigate the overwhelming menu.

We decidedI love Iberian Pig. We decided to go last minute for our anniversary and I put a note in our reservation. When we got there, an anniversary card was on our table signed by the staff. The food was excellent- we shared several tapas. Pork cheek tacos are amazing! As is the machego Mac and cheese. They also comped our dessert and gave us a menu signed by the chef. Great night!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMy first visit, took a lotMy first visit, took a lot of the waiter's recommendations and was not disappointed. The Iberian Tasting was a great intro to the cured meats and whatever sauces they paired with the cheese sampler were amazing. They were offering a first-run WA salmon appetizer that may be the best salmon I have ever tasted. Everything was delicious. My only suggestion would be to add a few lighter and/or sweeter menu options. Even the asparagus has pork in it, as well as an egg and after two glasses of wine and a lot of meat and heavy dishes I was thirsty and craving something cleaner or lighter. Perhaps we could have chosen better. It's loud but ever place is these days.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were excellent. We particularly enjoyed the BWD and the Morelli and Mushroom toast. They did a great job with timing the delivery of the various dishes; not too rushed and not too much waiting between bites. Drinks from the bar were a little slow, but it was quite busy.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is extremely popularThis place is extremely popular for a reason.

On a Monday night that should tell you all you need to know. But here is some info anyway. The 7 of us just ordered tons of small plates to share. Great food and fun waitstaff.

We will return.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe thing that most impressedThe thing that most impressed me (Dolores Budd) was the intense desire of staff to make us feel at home. The bartender was a bit slow on the uptake, but he did have another couple to take care of. Our waiter was great...but when you guys concocted a chorizo hot dog especially for Bob...that was outstanding! Beyond all expectation (which is how he personally rates restaurants and all other service businesses. BRAVO.
SO SORRY. THIS IS REALLY NOT A REVIEW, BUT SHOULD BE LISTED UNDER PRIVATE NOTES.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA lovely, relaxed eveningA lovely, relaxed evening with great food and great service.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience.

It made a world of difference in the overall experience and I would dine here again.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated our weddingWe celebrated our wedding anniversary at Iberian Pig. The staff couldn't have been more hospitable, stopping by to wish us well and giving us a quieter table. They made us feel special. The food was excellent, particularly the octopus, scallops, asparagus, fish of the day- yummy halibut. The only thing we wouldn't order again was the eggplant fries, but many people would probably love them. The wines by the glass were interesting and our waiter made good suggestions. We'll be back!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMCongratulations for winningCongratulations for winning The Final Fork!

We have been here several times and truly enjoy it each time and come away with a different view on the food. This time we tried the meat and cheese platter appetizer - so very good other tapas places in Atlanta can not compare to the quality of the meats. The Sangria was also very good! Will continue to come back!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood gem in DecaturThe Bacon Wrapped Dates (BWD) tapas was delicious with cheese and walnuts. The flatbread Carne de Credo was flavorful, and I noticed it at the table next to mine, and was so glad Iordered it. THere was no room for dessert, but everything was so good. It was the Final Four Monday in Atlanta, and the staff did everything to accommodate the restaurant patrons. It is noisy, but a fun place. My waitress was excellent in her recommendations. The wine list has a very good selection. I will go back again, and again.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Jamon and TapasGreat for authentic spanish jamon and creative tapas. Good wine.
