  • "At the last minute my wife and I decided on a weekend trip to Atlanta. Just going to Wisteria was worth the trip. Thank you so much"

  • "Don't waste your time or money, tables practically on top of each other, can't hear anything, it is like being in a barn with no hay and 1000 hens cackling, bummer for special occasion we were there for."

  • "We used to go to Wisteria quite a bit because it was on the way home from work. We recently decided to go back and found that it wasn't the same. The service was good, but the food was not. We started by sharing the salmon tartar app and it was very bland. I asked about it before ordering to see if the waiter liked it, and he highly recommended it. Really, almost no seasoning so it was basically the salmon, not smoked, on homemade crackers (the crackers were good). My husband ordered the cod, which was the special. It was the smallest piece of fish I have ever seen and was $27. Additionally, it was very overcooked. I had the almond crusted trout. It wasn't terrible, but certainly wasn't good. Not a good meal."

  • "Really good bar setup and a comfortable romantic setting. My wife had several glasses of wine that our server recommended and I had a quality draft beer. The food was GREAT, I had the fish and my wife had the steak - spot on. We dine out a lot and this was a nice blend of location, ease of parking, good food and good drinks. I recommend highly."

  • "Delicious food, excellent service, and laid-back vibe. The macaroni and cheese with greens and the crab bisque were AMAZING! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who lives in the Inman Park/Little Five/Candler Park area who is looking for an excellent dining experience close to home!"

  • "It is a treat to share this restaurant with friends who haven't been. Everything Sunday was a delight. Every course delicious. Our server exceptional. A true Atlanta gem!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Great food, service and atmosphere. Love that this is a place that has been around awhile rather than the new trendy hot spot. We hadn't been here in awhile and decided to bring a friend who was here from out of town. He is a real foodie and has traveled the world. Everything was delicious, portions weren't skimpy and he raved about the place. We will definitely put Wisteria on the top of our dining out list."

  • "Great place to dine, the service was wonderful and the food was fresh and cooked to perfection! Kudos to the chef, I will definantly be back :0)"

  • "What a great find! Food was sensational!! Pork Loin, Sweet Corn Pudding and the mini deserts are a MUST. If you are in Atlanta, you NEED to go to Wisteria. You will love it! Wonderful atmosphere and reasonable prices were icing in the cake."

  • "We work in ATL twice a year. Everytime we are here we eat at our favorite restaurant in ATL , Wisteria. Time and time again we are impressed by the food. The scallop appetizer this time was outstanding and over the top and we wanted more. As always, the food was excellent and our manager who was with us now uses Wisteria for his business entertaining. Kudos to the front door management. We ran late, called in and they were kind enough to hold the table until we arrived."

  • "We loved everything about our dinner. The food was exceptional. Wisteria is a neighborhood gem!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Don't get me wrong, the food is good, but I will explain what is not good. We were offered desert at the end of the meal which we declined due to being too full. We asked for the check to pay. After paying and tipping, we proceeded to finish our conversations before leaving. After 5 minutes from paying we were asked to leave or go to the bar. I'm sorry but I'm not going to drop over $200 on a dinner to be asked to leave. The manager was a huge d!ck and unfortunately, my wife and I won't be remembering the food, we'll be remembering our final experience of the evening."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The food at Wisteria is fresh, imaginative, of high quality, and very tasty. The service strikes exactly the right balance of being solicitous and friendly without being overbearing or too familiar. The problem is the atmosphere. The tables are packed closer together than almost any other restaurant in town, which really ruins the experience. And -- though it is a little thing -- the tableware, especially the flatware, looks like something you would find in a college food service or a furnished relocation apartment. Much too downscale for what they are trying to do here. This is one of those rare places where we had a great meal but are unlikely to return."

  • "This was my first time to Wisteria, had family downtown and took them to dinner there. Great experience, food was top-drawer as was service. It was busy and somewhat crowded but that is what you expect from a very good place."

  • "Had a date night at Wisteria on Tuesday 7/8. Couldn't have been better. The staff and kitchen were completely on their A game. No wonder this place is packed on a Tuesday night. Will return soon."

  • "It has been some time since we made the trek to Wisteria - but the food was better than we remembered. Great Meal."

  • "We tried Wisteria because we walked by it and then found it on Open Table. We were early diners this particular night, but we were not treated as 'odd' because of this. The owner came by twice to ask about our food and was very interested in our experience. Great waiter, easy parking, excellent food. We will return...."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "It all started with our outstanding waiter who did more than just accommodate our dietary requirements. Salad, main dish (just being called 'salad' and 'vegetable platter' meant to do these marvelous treats quite some injustice) and the incredible blueberry & lavender ice cream where both optically beautifully arranged and a tasty fairy tale from first to last bite. Visiting from Germany, we took our Emory friends out for dinner and had a great evening. 5 stars!"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Outstanding. I have eaten at numerous top restaurants and this was among the best. All aspects including service, ambience, balance of flavors, and presentation were top tier. All at the table agreed. I'll be back."

  • "We loved our experience. The skate was fantastic. We did have to wait almost a half hour after our reservation time to be seated, but we had a specific request."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The service was good, food good but not exceptional. Very noisy and tables very close together. Parking is limited. I was very unfamiliar with the area and parked on a side street close to the restaurant. Did not see the signs that it was for permitted parking only. Got a very hefty ticket which really put a damper on the already expensive dinner. :("

    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Loved everything about our experience at Wisteria. The menu was interesting and it was hard to decide what to have. The service was beyond outstanding - not intrusive, we never waited for anything, there were several people available at all times, they were pleasant and fun. We both got the special entree because it sounded so good. It was amazingly delicious and very summer like for the season. The desserts were small - just the perfect size for a few bites of something sweet after a delicious meal. We loved it and will definitely go back."

  • "Chef greeted us and picked the best seat in the house for us. Chatted and joked with us. We all loved our food. The scallops and pork belly was a little over powering. I could not taste the scallops. Everyone loved the crab cakes and rack of lamb and I loved my meatloaf. Desert was awesome. I finished mine with a delicious tart shaved ice. We will come again!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Really nice neighborhood feel. Great southern fusion food and perfect place to take someone who you want to introduce to that type of cuisine. The service was ok, if a little careless at times. What it lacked in care, it made up for in taste. I would definitely recommend."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "I don't live in Atlanta, but make a point of dining at Wisteria when I visit. The service is impeccable, the atmosphere relaxed, and the cuisine a fresh take on old Southern favorites."

  • "I brought a group early in the evening, soon as they opened as a matter of fact. My group was very demanding and required seating for wheelchairs, Wisteria was very accommodating to everything we needed. Our server, Hunter, was outstanding! My entire meal, from salad to entrees and drinks was great! This is coming from a foodie and a tough critic. I'll be back soon! #CPD"

  • "In the hustle and bustle of Hot-Lanta lives a wonderful Oasis with just the right amount of Southern Charm mixed with the sophiscation and Hip of a Big city dining experience. I thoroughly enjoyed this . A menu with a little something for everyone . Well executed and honest food with a great relaxed non pretentious presentation makes this place a return visit for me again and again."
