    We went on a Sunday night so it was not crowded and the noise level was not a problem. Service was attentive and pleasant. I had the Sunday night dinner special which was very good and enough to eat although the portion is smaller than normal courses. Pleasant atmosphere and an enjoyable evening

    Hubby and I went to Serpas for Sunday Brunch and we knew immediately that we'd have to come back because there were so many good options on the menu. The restaurant is very open and filled with natural light. Our waiter was fantastic and made recommendations for both of us. We sat next to a group who saw us "eyeing" their food and they offered us samples! Thank goodness we refused because our food was amazing and the portions were generous. Overall impression, Serpas is great place for brunch.

    The food and service was fantastic - oh, and the recommended cocktail was too (preparation culminated with a sliver of orange being ignited and dropped into the glass). I wish I could remember our waiter's name, because he was worth giving a specific shout-out to - he provided the level of service that you typically only receive in the highest-priced restaurants. In other words, you get a lot of bang for your buck at Serpas. We'll be back.

    We went to brunch before going to see the matinee of Phantom of the Opera. They were very timely and we did not have a problem at all getting to the play on time. In our party, we had someone that does not like eggs, two picky teenagers and someone with celiac disease (can't eat wheat or gluten). Everybody was happy! We all ordered something different, it all looked good and most importantly - tasted great!

    Salmon chips and calimari were both enjoyed. The chicken was nice, but not special. The drinks were original. Service was courteous, maybe a little too aggressive. It won't be the best meal you ever had, but you won't be disappointed.

    The food at Serpas rivals any of the more expensive dinner places in Atlanta. I had a house bourbon cocktail that was excellent and the waiter did this trick with a lighter and the orange peel that was good entertainment. We started with a house salad and crab fritters. The house salad had some nice touches but the fritters were a huge hit. I had the Venison Flank entree and it was very very good with lots of nice flavors. My wife had the flounder and it was dressed with a very tasty sauce. Overall, it was magnificent birthday dinner.

    I'm disappointed because I was recommended this restaurant from a friend. She claimed "it gets better every time I go."This restaurant could really benefit from some sort of fabric hanging to catch the sound.. it was LOUD! the appetizers are pretty small, only a few bites on each plate. I ordered the scallops which was the favorite at our table when compared to everyone's dish.. don't order the trout. the waitress who wasn't very friendly at all, said the trout was the number one seller... none of us could figure out why? it lacked flavor.. I was giving my mom and boyfriend my creamed corn from the scallops to eat with their trout to add flavor.

    I've finally found a place with the perfect balance of an exquisite, and thoughtful menu. Each dish I tasted was properly seasoned and cooked to perfection. Our party ordered the calamari, duck rolls, scallops entree, vegetarian entree... 2 others I can't remember. What a chef! What really stood out is the service from the valet, to the waiter and management. I'm looking forward to returning soon.

    Found this gem on open table and decided to try it out because the menu looked so yummy. The chef is from New Orleans and the food definitely has a NOLA flare. The tuna tartar was delicious and a pretty generous portion. I had the seared flounder with broccoli ribe pesto and hazelnut sauce...great flavors, good sized portions, and nice presentation. The only thing to note is it is quite loud in the resturant because it has the loft like feel so if you are looking for a quiet romantic dinner this might not be your place. We went on a fun date night and it was perfect!

    Returned to Serpas for a second time which did NOT disappoint! Sara/h was our server, who was gracious and didn't Rush our evening. I brought my husband on this trip to see our daughter and her best friend...Of course the pigs in a blanket was an absolute-then the eggplant hushpuppies were INSANE GOOD!!!! For those who do NOT think grilled octopus is good, PLEASE THINK AGAIN AND GIVE THIS APP A CHANCE!!! Two of us had the bacon wrapped chicken, which melted in our mouths/the pork chop was oh, so tender and the flounder special, so light and tasty...I will definitely make this one of my go-to places whenever I visit!

    A friend posted a photo of her Serpas brunch meal on Instagram and I immediately texted her to see what restaurant the meal was from. She told me about Serpas and I realized it was right in my neighborhood! I was able to quickly make reservations via OpenTable and I couldn't have picked a better new brunch spot. The beignets were TD4 (to die for) and the belinis were refreshing. My friend and I both got the seafood omelete which did not disappoint. The ginger lemonades were nice, but a little too 'gingery' for me. I will definitely be visiting this restaurant for brunch or dinner one day to tryp some other menu items.

    This is a fun energetic place for brunch, but I was not wowed by the food. I had the mixed berry pancakes, which had woefully few berries on them and they had already been doused in more maple syrup than I would have used. My husband has the creole omelet, which was good but not great. However, the cronuts that we had to start were delicious. We had good service and the atmosphere was fun, so we will try it again, but order something different.

    I'm not a huge brunch person since I am continually disappointed with brunch food in general in Atlanta but finally found a place that is low hype but crave-worthy food. Much better than places like Highland Bakery, Rosebud, etc. etc. Biscuits are like crack. The short rib w/ poached egg (I get it without hollandaise) is amazing. The hash brown potatoes are actually crispy which is hard to find at other places. The shrimp and grits was also one of the best in town along with Wisteria. Will definitely keep going back, even though we're not brunch people! The only negative is that the food does take quite a while to come out even when there aren't that many people. But well worth the wait, so if you're not in a hurry, a great place!!!

    Even though this restaurant has been there for a while, we just discovered it exploring the Beltline. Per our valet's suggestion (there's also street and bike parking), we started with the salmon chips--four large chips heaped with exquisite smoked salmon, red onion, capers. For the main course my husband had the veal scallopini, and I had the redfish. Both were delicious. Generous wine by the glass portion of better than usual quality. It was so difficult choosing from all the menu options, we plan to go back soon to sample more.

We had made reservations but they were not packed so that was nice. Our sever was great. I had the pork chop...Oh My God...it was Good!

    This was my second visit and it was just a good as my first time. Great food (Tuna tartar was excellent!), atmosphere and service. The wine list was a bit weak (only 4 Cabernets) but reasonably priced. The mixed drinks were great (they use real lime juice not Roses lime) and the manager was present but not checking on us every 20 minutes. Nice atmosphere and plenty of space so comfortable. I'll be back.

    Serpas consistently delivers great food complimented by attentive service in a relaxing environment. Scott Serpas and manager, Jeff, always visit with diners to inquire about the food and welcome feedback. The service staff are knowledgeable about the wine list and offer up good suggestions for pairings. The menu changes seasonally and the veal scallopini is new, and delicious. The only negative is because of the brick and glass walls, the room gets loud as it fills up late in the evening. If you want to converse with a group of friends, go early or sit outside.
