Great neighborhood dining
Everything I have tried has been well done and prepared to perfection. The staff and especially the bar manager are accomodating to the needs of varying food and wine tastes. Great wait staff very congenial and friendly. Perfect for a last minute decision to eat out!

We went with a birthday group
We went with a birthday group 15+ and everything was wonderful! The staff was great as the guest list fluctuated. The craft cocktail kits were a total hit, but I wish they had more. Overall great experience!

1st Time, Can't wait for Next Time
This was my first time to Cook Hall, and it did not disappoint. Can't wait to go back again! The Ricotta with Lemon curd and Honey on Grilled Flatbread is an appetizer I am still dreaming about.

Delicious dinner inside the W Hotel
Cook Hall was great. The food was delicious and the cocktail kit was lots of fun. Mixing spirits and muddling fresh fruits at the table was something I have never seen before! I will definitely go back!

The service was impeccable. The deviled eggs and the spicy paprika shrimp with Tasso ham and Fontina grits are a must. The crispy duck taco with chipotle coleslaw was a winner as well.

Delightful but a tad noisy.
Delightful but a tad noisy. It was slightly difficult to have a conversation. We'll definitely be back.

Casual and cool
The ambiance is perfect for a casual but nice dinner. The staff is extremely helpful and accomodating. The food is outstanding and presented perfectly for sharing or to try multiple items on the menu.

Absolutely love this place!
I wish there will be more stars because these guys deserve all the praise for what they do. My husband and I love this place and go there all the time. The customer service is one of the best I have ever experienced-- and I am a tough judge. Jackie, Abby, Zack are amazing and they make everything look effortless. They seem happy working there and want you to have the best experience ever. The chef deserves a separate chapter, not only he apologizes if your food is a bit late, sending a nice treat his creations are fun, incredibly tasty and reasonably priced. The music is nice and not over the top loud. What else can I say -- it is just our favorite spot for a casual, delicious dinner surrounded by excellent service. Go Cook Hall!

Must try by foodies
Cook hall has an amazing menu. This is a date spot for us and we enjoy the portion size and ability to sample multiple dishes in one meal. We ordered the cheese, fruit, and nut plate as a starter, which was fantastic! Then for our meal we had the red snapper and crispy chicken. The snapper was paired with an amazing beet relish complimenting the fish perfectly! The crispy chicken, though a little drier than I preferred had a fantastic peppery crust that made you want to keep going back for more! We also sampled the broccoli rabe, which was sautéed with garlic, grapes, almond slivers, and topped with a little cheese. It was amazing! Our server recommended. Great white wine to go with our meal and it was fantastic! Definitely a must try!

Special occasion dinner
My first visit to Cook Hall was with an old friend, who once worked with their executive chef. I thought that we had received preferential treatment, until I came back for my anniversary last week. We received complementary champagne on arrival, our server was fantastic & had a great personality & sense of humor. Our food was great & the best part? Watching my girlfriend create her own cocktails via Cook Hall's fantastic bar option to be your own bartender at the table. Our server brought our spirit of choice, along with fruit, soda, tictures, home made fruit syrups & fresh herbs from their garden along with all of the necessities needed to mix a drink. they even provide a notebook with some recipes from other patrons. Perfect night!!

Perfect place to catch up with friends - the food is great for sharing and everything is delicious! Love the crab deviled eggs and the desserts are great too! The bar puts out great drinks as well! Definitely worth the drive to Buckhead

I have been here for dinner and brunch. I took my brother who is a big foodie. He loved it! I took my mom here for brunch on Mother's Day and she loved it. They even gave her a cute chocolate basil plant for Mother's Day, which was just a sweet touch. I can't wait to take my mom back for dinner.
Dinner - try the chicken with a little of their homemade hot sauce...yum yum
Brunch - the french toast is amazing, but I would skip the grits

Great food - parking not so good!
We enjoyed a girls night out last Monday. Everything was wonderful until we went to retrieve our cars from Valet. 2 of the 4 people were told they owed $5 for going over the 3 hour limit. We were never even told there was a limit. The valet was incredibly rude and disrespectful to us. After much arguing we got them to waive the charge but only because the restaurant host intervened. Parking needs to be free as it is at most Atlanta restaurants. Valet is fine but tacking on a parking charge is ridiculous. This spoiled an otherwise delightful evening.

A great time and great food
Cook Hall has a great atmosphere, fun cocktails, great food and excellent service. We had 8 people in our party and everyone had a great time.

I brought my parents to dinner here last weekend and sat on the patio. Jacque was our server and guided us through an amazing evening. The food was great! The drinks were even better. Can't wait for my next visit!

loved the concept of sharing dishes on the table making the experience more fun and less formal. cocktails are big hit and the duck tacos just amazing. will be back for sure

First experience - will be back!
I chose Cook Hall for my birthday dinner recently. It was a Tuesday night so we had no issue getting a table. The bar was surprisingly lively for a Tuesday. I like the idea of small plates that everyone can share, however, Cook Hall's plates are not so small that you have to order 75 of them. I had the truffle grilled cheese because I love truffle oil and it was delicious. We split the popcorn shrimp, house chips and pimento mac and cheese - all delicious! The drink menu is excellent as well. I highly recommend the west side. I will definitely be coming back.

Wish we could order room service
Went to Cook Hall the other night for a quick bite to eat after a long work day. We live out of town and are staying at the W in Buckhead. Cook Hall is located in the front part of the hotel, behind the hotel bar. We didn't expect much, just the usual gastro pub grub but we're dreaming about the duck tacos. Wish we could order them into room service. We had an inexperience waiter who got a few things wrong, but thankfully he was replaced early by one of the senior waitresses, even though we didn't complain. She was fantastic. Guided us through the meal exactly right and when we were finished we were full and happy. Definitely headed back during this trip!

Cook Hall is cool w/divine cuisine.
We had a great time at Cook Hall. They have many wines & beers to choose from which was perfect for put dinner party. Our server Chris was patient, knowledgable, friendly, & helpful. The food was fresh & delicious! All of us felt the same way and we cannot wait to return.

I brought my Fiancee and her out of town friend to Cook Hall this past Friday night. We tasted all of the new menu items and they were all fantastic! The cocktails were great and the service was friendly and knowledgeable. We celebrated our friends bday and really enjoyed our evening. We were surprised to see Donna Hopkins playing int he Living Room! Was to top off a perfect night!

Excellent restaurant. Great service. Food was wonderful. Will absolutely go back.

My husband and I were in the area and looking for somewhere new to eat. We randomly picked Cook Hall. We both ordered the crispy snapper sandwich which was excellent. It was light and fluffy and didn't feel like a "fried" sandwich at all. The few chips that came with it were equally excellent, though it would have been nice to have a normal serving, as in most restaurants when you order a sandwich. We were glad to see that there is a cider section on the bar menu, with a first for us: Flander. It is a little on the pricey side, and the menu is a la carte; however, we found the sandwich alone very satisfying. We liked the atmosphere. Although contemporary, this place has a relaxed and almost familiar feel to it. The service was excellent.

Good for a group
I selected this restaurant for a work dinner and it went very well. The food was unique and tasty and it was fun to order several different apps and entrees and share them. The service was also great.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice Gastropub with exellent food. The wait staff made great recommendations as far as a draft beer, side dish and dessert, all of which were excellent. Finding the entrance while walking was a little confusing but this is a minor drawback

This restaurant delivered
This restaurant delivered quite the surprise. Loved the food and the added touch of the wood burning firepit on their patio. Will definitely make return trips to this restaurant. Our server , Chris, did a marvelous job. The entire experience was so pleasing.

Great Meal and Service
We went before a movie so we were on the early side - it wasn't crowded yet. Our server was amazing and extremely accommodating to any dietary issues. Food was delicious! Definitely would go back.

Not your average hotel restaurant
Things to try:
Smoked Old Fasioned that arrives in a closed mason jar with smoke enclosed... Ready to shake and infuse!
Homemade Ricotta with honey and grilled pita.... Yum!
Cauliflower with hummus includes flash fried golden raisins.
Everything was delicious and for a hotel restaurant, not outrageously priced. If it hadn't been for walking through the lobby to get there, i'd have never known it was associated with the W.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good for Pre-Bar Fun!
Being in the great Buckhead location that it is, and within the W this was a great find! The drink menu was very intriguing and the Jalisco Flip and Sparking Gingered Pear are definitely worth a try! We went with the intention to try the Stout Ice Cream Sundae but it was no longer on the menu. Instead we tried the highly recommended Blue Crab Deviled Eggs and the Popcorn shrimp which we're both delicious and fun. I also recommend the Baked Apple Torte/Gallete. It was so hot and fresh when it came out with some delicious Caramel ice cream on top and a great way to end the night. Overall it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend to a friend.

We had a very good experience at Cook Hall. It was quiet for a Saturday night, but that was fine with us. The atmosphere is inviting, service very good, and the food was interesting and very well-prepared. We shared several small plates; most notable for me was the house made ricotta flatbread, husband really enjoyed the meatballs.

Cook Hall has become a Buckhead gem
The two of us had dinner at Cook Hall for the second time. We were very impressed. The food is excellent! Service and ambience were also outstanding. There are many good dining choices in Buckhead and Cook Hall is among the best. We'll be back there soon.
