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-ConstitutionContinued

Diner Reviews
  • "Very confusing menu, overpriced. Food was mediocre."

  • "This was our first visit to Kyma and it will not be our last. We can't wait to bring our foodie friends back with us."

  • "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."

  • "I dine at Kyma at least 2-3 times per year. The food is always good, and the servers are always pleasant."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "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."

  • "love the small plate menu, liked very much the beets, large prawns were great, had to have the grape leaves, dill sauce was wonderful like Kyma for early Sunday Dinner, great end to the weekend"
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Food was excellent. Seasoned very well and delicious. Nice atmosphere. Server was attentive, but not overly. Ahi tuna was wonderful. Filet was cooked exactly as ordered and tasty. 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."

  • "We have dined at Kyma several times. It seems without fail, that the service is slow. We have even gone to the extent to ordering everything at once, but it still seems that there is a lag in service. The food is good, but be prepared to wait."

  • "we believe this is the best of Buckhead group. the food service, value are always great. we have been here many times, and never had a bad meal. will be back soon. you can make a different meal by just getting a bunch of small plates, if you like to sample lots of things."

  • "Just a great meal at Kyma. Some of the best apps I've had (grilled oysters, mussels, grilled octopus)."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "It was a great experience - from the robust white columns and blue bejeweled four-legged greeter to the convivial family style dining and delights for each palette! Kyma provided an elegant dining ambience pleasing to all of the senses. The food, service, and aura of the space were all wonderful... highly recommended for a special occasion or any night of the week!"

  • "This restaurant feels like it was converted from a car dealership or auto repair shop. It has a disjointed vibe to me. The food was ok but the service was weird. Semi-hostile bartender and airheaded waitress."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "I've been to Kyma many times and always enjoyed it. On weekends I like to dine in the smaller room because it is quieter. I had the pleasure of dining outside this time. It was a wonderful experience. I enjoyed the ambiance very much. It made it a perfect evening. My favorite appetizer is the octopus. It is the best I've had anywhere. I ordered the prawns. They were very large and prepared wonderfully. My friend ordered the snapper which he really liked. We can't wait to go back. The service is alway excellent."

  • "I've been a long time patron of Kyma, not necessarily frequent, but have never had a bad dinner or service."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "My husband and I are in our preliminary stages of planning our first trip to Greece so we decided to experience some of Greece right here in Atlanta by having dinner at Kyma. It was superb! Our server, Yanni, was very knowledgeable about the food on the menu and the wine that best complimented both of our entrée selections. When we told Yanni that we were planning a trip to Greece, he was so willing and enthusiastic to share his recommendations with us. All of this made for a very enjoyable and informative evening. We have all the intentions of returning to Kyma."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "The patio bar at Kyma is one of my favorite places to dine -- especially to enjoy spreads, mezze and wine. Kyma is the best quality Greek food in Atlanta and I enjoy the menu because it offers something different than most any other place in town. The service on our recent visit was slow and not particularly attentive (we were seated in the dining room on this visit), which is atypical for Buckhead Life Group restaurants. The server was courteous and knowledgeable, but it seemed that perhaps the restaurant was under-staffed and he was spread too thin among tables."

  • "The roasted Royal Dorade was the best we've ever had anywhere.!"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our visit to Kyma. The food was wonderful, the wine list extensive and the service was very good. I love fish entrees and the list of fresh fish was great with some good suggestions from our server, Cory. The multitude of side dishes was mind boggling and again, we asked Cory for some suggestions. His suggestions were accepted and the side dishes were exceptional. Overall an exceptional dining experience. We will certainly be back."

  • "I've been on a vegetarian diet for a few weeks now and appreciated that Kyma has a vegetarian menu available upon request. I wasn't disappointed with a single item that came to our table (3 appetizers, 2 entrees and 2 desserts). All Mediterranean/Greek dishes felt authentic and expertly prepared. I will go back"

  • "We always love this restaurant. The drinks are delicious. The service is impeccable. The food is even better. We had the grilled octopus, the grilled oysters, and shared the Arctic Char. The grilled oysters were just ok, they were still a little chilled so that was confusing...I would have preferred the raw oysters. The grilled octopus was deliciously prepared. The Artic Char took quite a while to come out but it was well worth it. It is such a great fish and was wonderfully recommended by our server. For dessert, we had the sampler platter of baklava and the donuts as well as the volcano cake. The donuts are amazing. We kept seeing other tables order it and had to try it ourselves. The volcano is a stable with us and is always delicious."

  • "Had dinner on a Friday night at Kyma. Our server, Haley was very knowledgeable about the menu, made great recommendations for both wine and food. Our favorite appetizers were the ahi and the beet salad. Had hoped for a better table since we made the reservations quite a while ago, but were glad we were seated in Haley's section. Overall a really nice place."
