A word from Kyma - Atlanta
Kyma is a contemporary Greek seafood tavern like no other. The cuisine is inventive yet approachable that is true to its Mediterranean origin. Kyma is dramatic, with a dazzling display of constellations on the deep blue ceiling, white marble columns and a bold fresh fish display. The welcoming patio, with its plush furniture and white linen curtains, offers the ideal setting to savor a glass of Greek wine and Kyma’s array of appetizers. Fresh, healthful food, attentive Greek hospitality and festive atmosphere await at Kyma. Proper dress is required. “A true labor of love. Bravo.” -The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

    We had a reservation but we didn't get a table in the main dining room which seemed nicer. They put us across from the bar which was fine but nothing i would pick myself. Make sure you ask for a table in the main dining room if you care anout the ambience.

    This was our 2nd visit to Kyma and it didn't disappoint. The food was amazing and the whole staff was friendly and accommodating. On our first visit we had an amazing server and this time he was just OK - explained dishes and checked on us enough times just wasn't the liveliest of people.

  • Fine, but flawed
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 8/20/2014
    I love Kyma, OK? Especially that grilled octopus. The fish is fresh. The spanakopita are way too full of butter, which is fine with me. They are nice about saving the honoree's dessert and present to be presented at meal's end when you do a birthday there. And the portions are, usually, generous, but not overpowering. But on Wednesday night, the lamb dish one of the guests got was more app than main. The skate wing and sole were both lovely, and I'll go back without hesitation. But when you're in a place owned by a guy named Pano and it's less lamb than expected ...

    I wanted to introduce a couple to Kyma. It is one of my favorites in town for business and personal dining. They had not dined there previously. Since it was both our anniversaries, this would be perfect. The meal and service was everything I thought it would be. They loved it! So much that one of my guest indicated he was going to bring a business partner there the next day. Great job. The service and food are always excellent.

    After many visits Through the years to Kima, they keep their selection in the menu a Most Have. In special the Octopus, which is always ordered and never disappointed. This last Friday, Aug 15th 2014, our waitress was Eleni, and she gave us her recommendation for our diner and a very good Greek white wine; we had maybe the best experience after at least 15 previous visits

    We celebrated my mother's birthday at one of our favorite places - Kyma. Had the same waitperson as we did a few weeks earlier - Haley. She remembered us and was as friendly and helpful as ever. We had the Mediterranean tasting menu featuring assorted spreads, selection of appetizers and grilled whole fish. Grilled octopus, braised artichokes, spanakopita - all of it was delicious. Accompanied by a crisp Greek white wine. For dessert this night, there was a fig tart special. Yum! The perfect end to a wonderful birthday dinner!

    we don't get to Atlanta often but when we do, this is our number one choice. when we arrive at Kyma we feel genuinely welcomed; the wait staff knows the dishes, the wine, the customers' expectations. the location is perfect for Buckhead visitors especially. food is well presented---for example, the codfish cakes were both delicious and quite attractive. Excellent spot. Lamb is especially good.

    Great service here with a young lady named Haley. She wants to make sure its an enjoyable dining experience. Very helpful with the menu and knowledge of various appetizers. Everything was really good, especially the mussels. The only reason they receive a four rating is the calamari. Small serving for 15, and not as tasty as at places such as Fish Market, Ocean Prime, and Agave.

    While it can get pricey very fast, I cant stay away. I blame this mostly on their Philosopher martini. Its the best cucumber martini in the city. Generally I sit on the patio, the dining room area makes me feel like i have to be quiet and talk in hushed tones. the patio makes me feel like I can laugh out loud at a joke my dinner companinon may have told.. This visit was like my 5th in a year, and I have had impeccable service everytime I've gone. I think each time I've left 20-25% tip for my server....they are that goo.d

    Kyma has been one of our favorites for several years; we go there 3-4 times per year. it had been several months since our last visit. we were a bit taken aback by the higher prices across the board. there were no reasonable price main courses so we stuck with the small plates. then, to make matters worse, one of our choices, the mussels, was sold out, even though it was barely 7 pm. Our server was in attentive, bored looking, and uninformative. what we ate was very good.

Wonderful variety of tastes when you are ready for something a little different! Menu was a little confusing - different from the ordinary. Not large portions.

    My wife and I went to Kyma for the first time last night and it was wonderful. The food was fantastic, we did a tasting menu (without the whole fish) and ha a dessert tasting as well. Needless to say, we walked out of the restaurant full and happy. The waitress recommended an excellent Greek white to go with our meal, and I cannot say enough good things about our experience. We will definitely return to Kyma.

    We were celebrating my husband's birthday. Our first time at an authentic greek restaurant. The spinach feta wraps were delicious! The octopus was surprisingly tasty, we would order it again. And how can you go wrong with fried squash and zucchini. My husband also ordered a greek beer which was actually pretty good as well. We were so full after our sea bass that we could not order dessert, but they brought us a small baklava with pistachio ice cream and Happy Birthday written in chocolate on the plate. Our server was very knowledgeable about the dishes and gave personal suggestions on ordering. We look forward to visiting Kyma again!
