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

  • Good Food, poor service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    As always, the food at Kyma was outstanding. We really enjoy eating family style off the Meze menu. Great for a group celebrating a special occasion. However the last two times we have dined here the service was lacking. This most recent trip it was particularly poor in terms of service. The table we were given was uneven and caused a number of spills.The wait staff spilled things and didn't even acknowledge it. The lamb chops we ordered didn't come out until 30 minutes after our dinner. We were told the lamb chops would be removed from the bill and then they were not removed. All in all a pretty dissappointing experience at a restaurant we have enjoyed in the past. For a meal this pricey the service should have been far better.

    My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at Kyma and will definitely be returning. It's a Greek restaurant and their menu is primary fish. Delicious fish. We had scallops and ahi tuna for starters. I had the Arctic Char fish dish and my husband had lamb chops. All was seasoned and flavored to perfection. It was a truly tasty delicious meal. You won't be disappointed...

    From tight adherence to the reservation (no wait), to the attentive service and delectable dishes, Kyma didn't disappoint. This is my second visit and both my girlfriend and I were pleased with the appetizers (spanikopita, cod fritters) main dishes (prawns and lamb chops), and the desert dishes (flour less chocolate cake and Greek doughnuts). I think the $30/person estimate is inaccurate, but the evening was worth the money and the staff was impressive.

  • Not a kid friendly environment
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/12/2014
    Veni Vidi Vici was much better at customer service to my twin grandchildren. Kyma could take a few lessons from them. Am trying to teach my pre-school grandchildren to appreciate and become comfortable in a restaurant environment. It did not feel welcoming here. Children had to wait for food and no bread plate/munchie was offered to quell their appetite until their mean arrived. The waitress told me that kale came with my dinner, and when I said I wanted the greek fried instead, she charged me $7.00 instead of including them as a part of my meal. A disappointing experience.

    We came here to celebrate our 10 year anniversary since we were married in Greece 10 yrs prior and we were visiting Atlanta for a getaway long weekend sans kids! We wanted to order all the meze appetizers and had a hard time narrowing our choices, but the server offered us 1/2 portions of some of them so we could try more! Grilled octopus was the best! But everything we tried was delicious... Htipiti spread, calamari, tomato salad. was very good and my husband had the lamb chops which he said was perfect. We were too full for dessert, but the server gave us tasting portions of the yogurt, honey and walnuts to round out our meal. Perfect, attentive, generous. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!

    The food, service and drinks are all excellent. I love their vegan/vegetarian menu. I've been here multiple times and have never had anything that I didn't love. The bean stew, spanakopita and haricot varts are all awesome appetizers. Service is always on point. One of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta.

    We have eaten here several times and usually get a variety of appetizers. THis time we were able to do the tasting menu and really enjoyed being able to have little bits of several things. The appetizers were served in very visually appealing presentations and everything was delicious. Food has gotten pricier over the couple years we've been coming, it would be too much if we didn't have the discount card from our summer dine around program

    We were very disappointed in Kyma. While the ahi tuna was wonderful, the filet mignon was marginal. The Greek doughnuts had little flavor beyond the honey topping. A restaurant this expensive should have exceptionally good food. Kyma didn't.

    We brought another couple to Kyma as it is one of our favorites and had a less impressive experience than usual. First one of them ordered a special as his entre and all of the other food was brought out except for that. Finally it came and when I asked him how it was, he replied "It's ok". Then we ordered 2 desserts between the 4 of us & waited a really long time for rice pudding and donuts. We were chatting and nobody timed it, but it was no longer "fun". Then the other person in the couple didn't really care for the donuts! How embarrassing as we rave about this restaurant!! Luckily our server went ahead and took the special and the desserts off the bill at no such request from us which helped to support our high opinion of Kyma.

    My husband and I share everything. Our meal started with the Beet salad. The beet sorbet was fantastic and left us wanting more. We ordered snapper from the specialty menu and the lamb dish. Both were amazing. Our meal ended with a trio of deserts. All of which were yummy. Kyma has become one of my favorites in the group.

    Restaurants cycle. Bad one Good One. This was a good one. Entry Staff was on the Ball. Server was also. Some appetizer ingredients had run out. Substitutes were Good. Ordered the "Greek Sea bass" Good presentation,before cooking and after. Brought our own wine. We're not "Fast Food" eaters. We were there maybe 2-1/2 Hours. We DO tip above the norm,even with poor food. Just as hard to serve good as bad. So server shouldn't be faulted,unless it is the server.

    Dinner with eagles and visitors from overseas. The fish at market price indicated at 29$ for 3/4lb ended up on the bill at 63$ pp, surprise! Wine list shows 99% of pricy Greek wines,most of them if not all, totally unknown to the common customer making it unfriendly. We ending up with a disappointing red wine who was recommended as being close to Pinot noir. It was not the case at all.They should diversify the list with New World wines. The waiter was professional but often forgot to refill the glasses. To end up on a positive note, the Mezes were excellent. A bit noisy for a business discussion.

    This was not my first trip to Kyma and most certainly will not be the last. Kyma is one of my favorites of the Buckhead Restaurant group dining establishments. The service is always spot on with courteous, knowledgeable and helpful servers along with delicious food. Past choices have included the Dover Sole, Skate Wing, and Lamb Chops and so wanted to try something different. The Block Island Swordfish was a new choice for me. The peppers, onions and tomatoes along with the Greek sausage was a delectable combination. I would definitely recommend the dish.

    The food here is consistently delicious. My husband and I had three appetizers each instead of an entree, which was more than sufficient. The whole fish prices have gone up and seem high. I enjoyed the grilled octopus, scallops and prawns, while my husband enjoyed the calamari, salmon mouse and a lamb dish which he took home, since the other two appetizers (plus, tastes of mine) filled him up. Our table was in a noisy area, so it was not as enjoyable as when we have been seated along the outside edges of the dining room. Our waitperson was superb and very knowledgeable.
