Waitress barely came to our table. Food was unimpressive, Brussels sprouts were good, as were drinks. Wouldn’t recommend-overpriced for service/food

The hostess was terrific. When I made my reservation I mentioned this was a date. They asked if I would like them to purchase flowers for the table. They did a great job with that and the table was nice.

The food was really good, especially for the price.

The table service was very poor. That became a bit of a joke during our date.

All in all, we had a good time. I wish they would do something about their food service and table service. That can be fixed.

Food was good, not great. We had the ribeye with potatoes au gratin and broccoli. Added the salad with chicken. Honestly it was good but really not unique nor great.

The location is perfect and I recommend you skip over to Cinco rooftop for live music afterwards.

Great food. Everything I've had there is good except for the lobster..it was overcooked. Desserts are great. Had an apple galette that was AMAZING. Noise level is very high so it's not a place for a quiet romantic dinner

While we enjoyed ourselves, we were not impressed with the food. With the exception of their brussel sprouts appetizer, everything was just OK. The drinks, service and ambiance were all spot on. I had the BBQ braised short ribs, mac n cheese, and green beans. The short ribs & green beans were decent, but lacked seasoning. I am a firm believer that mac n cheese requires baking and their seemed more like a bougie Kraft n cheese version. My husband had the lamb shank and he too said it was just ok and remarked that he wouldn't get it again. Our server was awesome. There was also live music on the outdoor patio which was a delightful surprise b/c it was Wednesday. If we returned, it would be for the service, drinks, ambiance and those heaven sent brussel sprouts!

I was recommended the “special” by our waitress. She mentioned that it was filet mignon with mashed potatoes and asparagus. Based on the pricing of the dishes in the steak portion of the menu I figured the meal would be around $30-40. When the dish arrived I found out it comes with lobster meat on top (which the waitress never mentioned!). I’m highly allergic to seafood and gave the meal to my brother to eat instead while I ate his chicken sandwich. I don’t know why the waitress didn’t mention there was lobster meat on there. This should be very important to mention to customers who may have allergies! I’m definitely not coming back to Branchwater anytime again because of this experience. The waitress seemed very uninterested in anything other than the size of the check to make her tip and wrap up the evening. TERRIBLE!!!

Long time fans. Have experienced a little inconsistency in the past, but tonight they are spot on. Food was excellent (steak tenderloins, Mahi Mahi special, fried shrimp, and, of course, the Brussel sprouts appetizer). Service was friendly, but a bit tentative (quiet)-plus the place was unusually noisy. Desserts were excellent--key lime pie and some delicious chocolate marshmallow dish. We like Branchwater. Recommended.

If it were solely based on food and service, I'd give it 5 stars. However, my reservation was for 8 adults. They tried squeezing us into two 4-tops that only seat 6 comfortably when placed together. There was no elbow room having a person at each end and everyone squished in between. They offered a small cocktail table at the end to give a little room and it was better than nothing. We made it work. Then, we ordered 4 martinis and waited 20 minutes. When we asked where our martinis were, the server said "I'm sorry, they're coming. We only have 20 martini glasses in the restaurant and apparently they're in high demand right now". Not the exact experience I was expecting, considering the food is pricey.

I found Branchwater through Open Table and have taken many of our friends to experience the excellent food choices. We have found some favorite dishes that we enjoy but we really miss the lamb chops!!!!! Please bring them back. They were the best I in Atlanta.

Sit at the bar if you can find a spot. The bartenders are EXCELLENT.
