I was soooo disappointed in my dinner at 10 degrees south. First, when I pulled into the parking lot the valet guy was so rude and uninterested… I mean I get that you do not want to park card in the rain but HELLO! Aren’t you in the valet business? So I go inside and have a drink at the bar while waiting for my guest. Bar was good. Drinks and service! We get seated at our table and order the most expensive bottle of wine on the menu and the waitress knew nothing about it and had to send another waitress to serve the bottle after almost 30 minutes. We ordered our food and she forgot one of our appetizers. I ordered the ostrich medallions but I received some sort of meat, sliced in one inch thick pieces and COVERED in gravy. I asked about it since it was obviously not the MEDALLIONS AND she said it was my dish. It was grotesque and I could not eat it. I sent it back and told her that I couldn’t eat it and she asked if I wanted to wrap it up? She was the worst waitress… mostly other people brought our food and waited on us. I paid for the disgusting meat dish. As we were waiting for the valet, a hostess asked the valet guy if he wanted an umbrella to take us to our cars but he made such a big ordeal that I walked in the rain to my car. (He actually brought a Corolla for my friend who was driving a 7 series bmw. I mean… seriously.) Horrible food, service and ambiance. Too many amazing restaurants in Atlanta to go to 10 degrees south.

10 Degrees South came highly recommended by a friend. So glad we decided to dine here for our anniversary. The ambiance was calm and inviting. We enjoyed how all of the parties were socially distanced and all staff properly masked. The food was amazing: lobster spring rolls, calamari, and ostrich were our favorite dishes. Will definitely return.

My sister had ordered the medium-well rib-eye which came out well done and dry. The steak was very small for the price off $48.00. The lamp chops were not seasoned and cold. Bottom line, both our entrees were cold. The meal does not include a salad or vegetables.

Peri-peri egg rolls were good, ostrich was REAL good, prawns were meh, especially for the $$$. Drinks were good, restaurant was clean and pleasant, and service was on point, but that was a lot of money for oversized shrimip on rice. Overall it was very expensive, but prices going up everywhere, feel me?

Excellent, authentic South African dishes along with a few good wines from the country. Staff is excellent and accommodating. Enclosed patio is perfect for two or relaxing with a group of friends for drinks and appetizers. This is our favorite place to take friends to explore new, drinks, foods and flavors. In addition, there is something on the menu for everyone for those who are a bit less adventurous.

I’ve been coming here for years and this is the first time back in over a year. Our waitress was fantastic and very accommodating to my girlfriends food allergies. But overall the service wasn’t up to par to what I’ve been accustomed to at this restaurant. The table next to me was playing rap music on their phone while they dined so loud that is was distracting. I could see that the hostess looking at him, but she did nothing about it. I wasn’t about to say anything to the person as I didn’t really want my meal ruined. Finally after getting enough looks from other diners he turned it off. That is completely unacceptable in a restaurant of this quality. The other thing was our waitress brought us the check and never asked us if we wanted dessert. She just dropped it off, said thanks and moved onto the next table.

The restaurant has a nice ambiance, good for a date night. However, the price of the food wasn’t worth it in my opinion. I ordered the lamb chops that were plated with what tasted and looked like instant mashed potatoes. And there was a small scoop of them. For $45 it did not seem worth it. The drinks we ordered were the best part along with the awesome waiter! Sean was great and explained the menu very well.

My dining experience to celebrate my friend’s birthday was an excellent restaurant experience. I feel that the restaurant is doing its part to keep a COVID safe environment.
I did ,however, have an unpleasant experience due to the valet attendant damaging my vehicle when he parked it, and it was not brought to my attention. I discovered the significant damage myself. The Valet company responded promptly when I reported the damage directly to them, and I am awaiting resolution and repair.

Because of COVID, I would’ve preferred to park my own vehicle, and would not be in this predicament but I wasn’t given that option. I hope the restaurant considers allowing guest to self-park in a designated area.

Ribeye tasted as if it was from Kroger. They forgot our appetizer and the worst is ridiculous up-charge for wine, $52 for a $9 bottle. First and last time going.
