Seed Kitchen & Bar
Incredible Dining ExperienceAll around from service to food this place rocks and is right down the street from my house! Make a reservation though this place's reputation is obviously well known. Sat next to 2 couples, one from Midtown and one from Buckhead, that traveled to East Cobb just to eat at Seed. Pretty impressive. Can't wait to go back!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday lunch for friendWe loved out dining experience!! The food was fabulous and our server Jake was the best. We brought our friend Rev. Diane Parrish for her birthday and just loved he touch of her name on the menu with Happy Birthday. My husband and I will return and will also purchase a gift card for our daughter's anniversary!! Thank you!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place especially forNice place especially for East Cobb. Good food. Excellent service. Very nice staff.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNot sure what all the hype is aboutWe had a pleasant and tasty meal but do not quite understand why this place is AS POPULAR as it seems to be....the prices are a bit high and food was certainly good but not great...
There was quite a bit of noise - we asked to sit outside after first being seated indoors, but every time the doors opened we still heard how noisy it was inside.
The dishes were good but the dessert (chocolate banana concoction) was FANTASTIC!!!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLove itWe love Seed. My first visit was the first week it opened, and I've come back repeatedly. It is always our pre-movie spot. Food and service are predictably terrific. It is our favorite never-fail dining spot in this neck of the woods.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAll our dishes were well prepared,All our dishes were well prepared, beautifully presented and delicious. Service was very good too. The mussels were especially delicious as was the bread served with them. Local veggies were great - particularly the heirloom carrots. Fish was not over cooked and tasty.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellent!Our favorite place to celebrate special occasions. The food is always superb and the service is excellent. Our favorite place to get a drink and have their awesome calamari.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWould go back in a Heart Beat!We tried the stuffed dates, calamari, and the corn fritters. DELISH!!! Our meals were also to die for. All of us were happy with our meals, drinks, and the spectacular peanut butter dessert. Still trying to work off the calories. Really really good meals with a really nice variety of choices on the menu. Would go back in a heartbeat.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid choice in East CobbSeed is a great optiion in a dessert of chain restaurants and bland food. We've lived in East Cobb for 7 years and have been waiting for a place like this - it offers a hip, fresh menu that never disappoints. Now we can stay close to home and have a wonderful, interesting meal.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous Food, Awesome AtmosphereFabulous Food, Awesome Atmosphere and a must try place by everyone!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceMy wife and I went to Seed for our 12th wedding anniversary based on a recommendation from a friend. I was a little concerned to find the restaurant in a strip mall, but I couldn't have been happier. The service was AWESOME (our waiter was Patrick), and the food was so good, we literally cleaned our plates. Great time, and we will definitely dine there again.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time lunchI've been to Seed many times for dinner, but it was my first time for lunch. Loved sitting outside on the patio. I was worried about the service being outside, but it was great. Highly recommend it!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent, as always!Another excellent dinner at Seed! We are never disappointed in the service or the food. Wonderful every time!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA Wall of NoiseStepping in from the street, we were overwhelmed by the noise level. The restaurant was crowded, and I could barely make out the waiter as he described the menu items. I have a hearing problem, but my wife, who has excellent hearing, also had to ask the waiter to repeat items.
The food was excellent, the wine was pricey, compared to other restaurants ($10-11 a glass, compared to $7-8).
I would probably try it for brunch - the menu looks competitively priced. For dinner, it would not be my first choice, but I might try eating outside.
Wait staff and service reflect training, and management was visible and active. I felt that we received attention and glasses of water were refilled, Managers brought food and also removed plates.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMost Amazing Dining ExperienceI have to say Seed has quickly become one of my favorite places to dine in Atlanta. My wife and I make the drive from Alpharetta(since there is nothing there to choose from) and it has been worth it every time. Service is fantastic and friendly with a staff that is professional and well trained. Other restaurants should come in, eat and take notes. Food is amazing and has changed since our last visit to reflect the season. Wine list has also changed along with the cocktail and beer list to reflect the season. It just shows that these guys really care and take so much pride in what they do. Can't wait for their new wine bar Stem to open in July. It's exactly what Atlanta needs. Thanks Seed for restoring my faith in the hospitality industry.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat date!Perfect date spot. The food was very good and our waiter was a gem! We will definitely be heading back soon!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother stellar performance!We are never disappointed with our seed visits. From the moment you walk in the open doors, to the moment you walk out of them, you are guaranteed to be treated like a family friend. Keep up the great work, Seedlings!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMContinues to PleaseSeed never disappoints. The food and drinks were awesome. We always enjoy ourselves.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, slow serviceWe had a wonderful dinner on the patio but I was glad we were not in any hurry as the service was very slow.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMReturn visit to celebrateReturn visit to celebrate niece's high school graduation. Called ahead for reservation and we were provided with the Cheif's table (located next to open kitchen). Had sat there before, enjoyed the location again. Vary good waiter took of every request from our table. Food was as good as all prior visits. Delivery of drinks from bar is a little slow, as it had been previously.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMoutstanding performace:)This is my 5th time in this restaurant...Every time it has been an great experience. Food is always tasteful and daily specials always surprising with a special kick..
Service is always very professional but warm and informative. I would recommend this restaurant for everyone. You can't go wrong. It's and "neighborhood gem".5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWill Return OftenSEED has great food and wonderful service in a modern atmosphere in a convenient location.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSeedFirst time there and we were very pleased. Food is uniquely crafted and presentation is very good. Our waiter was very helpful in explaining some of the dishes that were new to us. We thoroughly enjoyed all the dishes we selected. Will go again when we can.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty food but a bit noisyThe potato ravioli was spectacular but the ambience was a bit loud for my date.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst rate serviceThe service and food were excellent. Drinks never ran dry. Server was the right amount of attentive (not disappearing nor interrupting every few minutes).
We shared the cookie for dessert.
The food was wonderful. With a drink each, the tab was $100.
Expect it to be loud if the place is crowded. This is because the tables are tightly packed. There is maybe a 2 foot space between tables. You can hear everybody's conversations.
I am not sure of the dress code. It states "Smart casual". There were people in shorts and flip-flops and others in business suits.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSeed was a good spot for usWe joined good friends for a dinner out and found the experience very nice. We felt the management and staff cared about making us comfortable and making sure we enjoyed the food. Our server was very attentive and proficient. Everyone really liked the food we had. This was my first visit, but won't be my last. I had heard this was a good place in our neighborhood and now I see why.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food - very uniqueWonderful food - very unique and interesting menu selections. Great wait staff. It's a very popular newer restaurant, so you will need reservations most evenings, especially weekends, but they do have outdoor seating and bar seating on a first come basis. Very open restaurant area. The menu came personalized which added to our wonderful evening. A great spot for foodies.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food for any occasionThe food comes from local farms and suppliers. Very fresh and exciting to experience. The service was great as well. Water glasses were refilled without asking and plates were removed at the appropriate time. I highly recommend this gem of a restaurant.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA Must Try!This restaurant has never disappointed us in the many times we've been. We've now introduced a few of our friends and they all have thoroughly enjoyed their meals and will be going back as well. Whenever we have guests in town we make sure they get to experience Seed since it's one of our favorite local restaurants. We love that the items we love are always on the menu but there are new options every time we go as well with their specials. Definitely a must try!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMStill a Hot SpotThe word about Seed has, by now, been spread far and wide. It is still a hot spot -- reservations necessary for the most part -- and the food is just as good as ever. It's amazing how many great restaurants are located in "strip" shopping centers.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways an excellent choiceThis East Cobb restaurant can hold its own against many Atlanta restaurants. With a very talented chef and great servers, Seed never disappoints. The food is excellent and the seasonings and portions are just right. Don't let the fact that it is located in a strip mall fool you -- Seed is a real, high-quality restaurant. Be sure to try their Sangria. Their specials are always pretty interesting, though we tend to order our favorites off the menu.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMView of the Stein MartGave it a 'neighborhood gem' because pickings are slim in East Cobb. Location in the corner of parking lot at Merchant's Walk certainly relays that suburban stripmall feel. Ambiance inside the restaurant is good. Featured cocktails and bar service in general were excellent. We had a post movie 9:30 reservation, and I felt a bit rushed by the food arriving quickly. Dessert was excellent.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLocal FavoriteMy wife and I have been to Seed twice now and can reasonable conclude that it is amoungst the best restaurants in Metro Atlanta. This restaurant takes the whole restaurant experience to a whole new level. I know it is a cliche, but I cannot say enough about this way Seed performs as a restaurant. There is something to be said when they take extra pride in their cocktails, which are absolutely amazing. (and I'm a beer kinda guy) The portions are the right size and delicious. No dressing up the plate nonsense you get from other ritzy restaurants. The price matches the amount of food. The flavors are excellent. We had the skillet cookie which was also delicious. You will not regret your decision to go to Seed.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PlaceMy sister and I took my Mom her the Monday night after Mothers Day. You would think that would be a slow night, but they moving right a long. The food is amazing,,,,,fresh and beautifully prepared. I wish I could remember our waiters name, he was fantastic. Very knowledgeable about the cocktails, wine and the menu. I live in town, but would make the drive again. East Cobb is so lucky to have this place!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistency is thy name!The true test of a well run restaurant is how they perform on a holiday. We dined on Mother's Day and had a terrific experience. The food was superb and served in a timely, efficient manner. Love this restaurant! Thanks for making our momma's feel special!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!Although we would prefer a quieter atmosphere for a Sunday night dinner, the food was definitely worth the noisy room. My husband had the excellent special of filet mignon, very tender and flavorful. I had the scallops which were prepared exactly correctly. The salad special was mixed greens with strawberries, almonds and goat cheese with a wonderful balsamic dressing. Delicious! The wines are a little expensive but a bottle of white bordeaux was just right for us. Next time we will try to eat outside if weather permits.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch.We recently dined at Seed for Mother's Day. We had a reservation and were sat quickly. Our server was attentive and knowledgable. There was a 3 course price fix brunch. The initial course took a bit long to come out, but the remaining courses came out timely. There were a few mistakes (bacon instead of sausage), but they were corrected quickly. My only disappointment was dessert. I ordered the ice cream sandwich. The ice cream was very melted so it was very difficult to eat. Half of the ice cream was too melted to eat. I did not mention it to the server as I was pretty full at that point and we needed to go. Overall we had a great meal.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest eating experience in Cobb!Since the day it opened, SEED has become my all-time favorite restaurant in the Atlanta area. It never fails to please!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerThe staff and management at Seed went out of their way to make my daughter's 16th birthday special - personalized menus, dessert with a candle, wonderful service. We love this restaurant!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelivers as always!SEED continues to be one of the best restaurants on the northside, and definitely the best of East Cobb! From the moment we walked in to the minute we left our evening was perfect! They customized our menus for our anniversary, the bartenders created great drinks, the waiter was outstanding, and every bite of our dinner was beyond delicious! Thank you for making our evening perfect!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMy 2nd Visit....within the past two weeks (this one for lunch on 5/10) was just as enjoyable as my first. Professional staff, good food and nice selection of wines.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOut did themselves.Celebrated my twin's 16th birthday with a family dinner. I called the restaurant in advance and they reserved the table by the "viewing" kitchen. They had the daily menu printed with their name at the top with birthday wishes. The waiter was excellent. The restaurant provided 2 complimentary deserts with much fanfare (but no singing). And it did not cost an arm and a leg! It was nice to find a great restaurant OTP. Appreciated not having to go to midtown or buckhead to get a good meal.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is My Favorite Restaurant!When some foodie friends from London asked me where we should go for our farewell dinner, there was no other choice. And, these finicky foodies were not disappointed. Everything about Seed is wonderful including the value provided and we often forget that but my British friends reminded me of it. I could have the sea scallops every day and not be tired of them.
Cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT SPOT FOR AN EARY BRUNCHWe went there with some friends from out of town. They were impressed with the decor. Two of us had lunch items and two of us had brunch items. Everything was very tasty. The mahi-mahi I had came with a sauce that was more spicy than I cared for so I was glad I asked for it to be "on the side." Grits fritters and corn bread were excellent. Will probably go back, but only for special occasions, because it is a little overpriced.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat additionMy 3rd visit brunch,lunch,dinner great food and service. About time we had a great restaurant in East Cobb!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe specifically asked forWe specifically asked for a table rather than a booth and our request was granted. We were seated at our reservation time - unusual in the middle of the weekend dinner rush!
Outstanding menu with gluten free options!
Service was spot-on - we were neither ignored nor hassled.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed!My husband and I had a night out with another couple. Everything was great and we had everything. The pimento cheese crostini appetizer was wonderful. Loved my mahi-mahi, and was just the right size so when we split a couple of deserts, I completely enjoyed my bites. My husband, a foodie, said it was the best meal he's had in a long time and we'll be back.
Our server was great too. Just the right mix of attention, and our water glasses never ran out!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible as always. LoveIncredible as always. Love the new menu items. Service is excellent.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst tryGood energetic ambience. Started off a little loud. Good wine selection. Shared pork sliders which were good and had the hangar steak which was good as well. Shared the tres Dulce's cake.. Excellent5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as Usual!Had dinner on Thursday night. As usual, Keath was awesome! He takes such great care of us and always anticipates our every need! We had the special Saganaki and it was really good. I had the filet and it was like butter. My husband had the hangar steak and it was so tender and flavorful. As usual, we had a great evening. Seed is the best place in town, not just East Cobb! The wine list is crazy good with hard to find wines at great prices! Jason knows what he is doing!!!!! Gee, I wonder why we keep coming back!?5/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
