We ordered the lobster spring rolls and the prawn appetizer. For the entrees we ordered the chicken curry and the special of the day which was Chilean sea bass with shrimp & basmati rice. Everything from our drinks down to the food was delicious. So far this is my favorite restaurant in Atlanta

Dinner was delicious. We had the calamari starter and the safari platter. The variety on the platter was nice and everything tasted great. My favorites were the rump steak and the sosaties. The Di’s delight was a nice ending to the meal. I look forward to dining here again.

10° south is supposed to be a South African restaurant. As a South African myself, I’m probably a bit hard to please. Some of the dishes were of a standard that you’d find back home, but not all. Some were bland or simply improperly prepared. But the main issue is price ... It's just waaay too expensive for what it is.

Great food, probably the some of the best customer service I've received in Atlanta. The atmosphere was great for a date, most of the restaurant was couples and a couple groups. Most people were well dressed; guys in button up shirts, women in heels, however it wasn't a requirement. The food was delicious, and not too expensive for atmosphere and service, around $100 for 2 people with a starter and a drink each. Most definitely going back for a special occasion.

I’ve always enjoyed dining here and esp the bar with live music
On this occasion we were celebrating my daughters and son in law to be engagement
Food was overall amazing as usual but prawns were not my favorite for the price and it has been better
Also the hostess brought shots which was sweet for celebrating however my daughter and son in law do not drink and her response should have been I’ll get you a non alcoholic replacement but instead they got nothing and were the ones to celebrate ... then upon bringing drinks for others she brought their ginger beer and made a snide comment like “oh I guess this is for you guys” it was very awkward and then with the smoking in the outdoor area after dinner was just not our favorite as it used to be
Spending well over $300 for one night I would have expexted better
Again normally one of my favorites but this visit was disappointing

I love the ambiance of this place. The decor is interesting and tasteful. The lobster spring rolls were perfection. The catch of the day, Chilean sea bass with peri peri shrimp, was also delicious. I definitely would return to try more dishes. You have to try their signature dessert, it's simply divine.

My son, fiance and I went here for my fiance 39th birthday. I picked this spot because for 1, we never been and for 2. It was a authentic south African spot SUPPOSEDLY. I noticed the prices where kind of steep. But that wasn't an issue for as long as the food is good. I now think the review are fake. Everyone saying how good and well seasoned the food is. So I couldn't want to try it.
I tried the mushroom appetizer. The server made it seem so delicious. They where so bitter and sour and tasted like they made up the recipe right then without them testing it first. STRAIGHT GARBAGE. The server asked how was it and we mentioned it was bitter and sour and he just smiled and tried to justify it and asked if he can help with anything else.

Then I ordered the Kingclap fish meal. It was ok. I did eat it all but there wasnt anything special about it season wise. NOTHING South African at all. Something I could have made on my own with little to know season to get the same or better results.

My Fiance ordered the Peri Peri Hen. Which is a whole hen with some type of orange sauce. This was suppose to be some south African flavor sauce. It looked sooo good. The sauce ended up being some plain old buffalo sauce. The hen wasnt fresh. More like it was cooked and refrigerated a day or 2 before. He didn't complain because he LOVE buffalo sauce so he ate it. NOTHING was south African about our meals. It lacked season and freshness.

The free birthday dessert they prove is something a dog or homeless person wouldn't even eat. For that resturant to be that pricey, you would think they will provide better quality food.
The dessert looked like someone vommited on our plate. I also ordered a cheese cake because I felt like the free dessert wasnt going to be good and the damn cheesecake wasnt fresh and seems a few days old or older. This place is was a joke. If you are wanting a good quality meal then you will be ok going to McDonalds then going to this overpriced place.

I would’ve given this experience a 5 Star rating had it not been for the rude hostess! Other than that, it was a perfect experience! Our server was amazing and knowledgeable about the menu and made incredible recommendations. The ambiance was beautiful and the food was absolutely incredible. I would’ve wanted my entree a little warmer but the flavor was so delicious I didn’t care! Definitely going back

My experience was okay, which was odd because I’m a frequent diner. I decided to take my grandma out to dinner at a place (10 degrees) that I’ve been raving about and it was just okay. I always get the app portion of the rump steak because it’s a lot of food. I took some to go and that was the first time ever I’ve boxed my own food. Didn’t get asked what temp I wanted my steak cooked, didn’t get the dessert menu - I feel like because I was dressed a lot more casual than I’m normally dressed I was sized up which is unfortunate.

Overall the experience was very good. Server was very attentive, and brought out a complimentary dessert for my wife's birthday. The decor of the restaurant is very sleek and hip, however a bit too dark in terms of lighting for my tastes. It's a very surprising light change between the front of the house, to the main dining area. The food was delicious, but nothing awe-inspiring. The lobster spring rolls were probably my favorite part of the meal, the peri-peri aoli is very addicting. We also ordered the prawns, which shocked me a bit since it's literally 2 prawns.
