The most delicious meal - EVER! From the shrimp cocktail to the Godiva chocolate cake everything was amazing. The croutons and dressing on the Caesar salad were made in-house and full of flavor. The requested anchovies on top were fresh and tender. Our entrees (filet mignon and the steak fromage) were to die for! Cooked to perfection and juicy! The mixed vegetables and baked potato seasoned well and balanced out the meal. The Godiva cake was a little teeny bit dry, but who's complaining - the restaurant nailed everything! Buckhead's had an extensive wine selection and the suggested Cabernet Sauvignon paired well with our entire meal. We can't wait to go back! Cheers!

A bit disappointed after our first visit a year ago. Went for a birthday celebration because my husband had raved about it ever since the first time. Were put at a 2-top in between to other 2-top tables and and you feel like there's no privacy - you hear their conversations and visa-versa. Fine dining is supposed to be great service but not slow to the point that you feel like it's taking way too long to get your first item. He said his rib-eye was grizzly and evident by the pile of it he left on the plate. My steak and crab was supposed to be lump crab and it was not, disappointed in that. It won't be our go-to anymore for special celebrations.

It’s all true! Perfectly prepared filets along with mouth watering potato du jour (sage and whole grain mustard mashed potatoes) and assorted sautéed vegetables met and exceeded our expectations. The jumbo lump crab was truly jumbo, and the bernaise sauce was yummy. Rick provided excellent and perfectly timed service. He greeted us with a Happy Anniversary, and sent us on our way with a sweet dessert to celebrate complements of Buckhead. Nice touch!

This is a great date night place. The servers in the dining room are excellent! They are unobtrusive while also appearing at the table right before you need them. The timing of the dinner is perfect. The scallop appetizer was so yummy. Our steaks were seasoned and cooked exactly as we ordered them. I would’ve given the service 5 stars; however the bar staff was overworked so we were not impressed with the drink service.
Someone’s appetizers sat on the bar for about 10 minutes before they were served and before someone asked us for a drink order.
Overall Buckheads is a place to treat yourself, to enjoy being pampered in the dining room and to be sure that you will be served a fabulous meal.

We have now moved closer to Buckheads-- it is now our "local." The food preparation is always stellar -- how do they do those string fries with truffle oil without the potatoes collapsing? Hmmm.
Their meat is prime and the chef respects that and cooks accordingly. The mixed vegetables that come with the meal are steamed with perfection.

So, why cook?

We will see you shortly -- Pat and Doc

This is my third time eating at buckheads. I love the food there. The steak is the best in town I believe. Of course this was my boyfriends first time and unfortunately we didnt have a very good waiter. He took our orders, but never once checked on us once we got our food. My boyfriend had to wave the waiter down to get another drink and I was unable to do so for myself. I love the food and we will be back, but hopefully we get a better server next time.

Outstanding Meal. Personally didn’t like the seating for 2. Would have rather had a larger table that sat 4 because the restaurant was not full. A little over priced but portion size was good. Way better than Fleming’s, much cheaper than Ruth Chris.

Great ambience and the noise level is very low. Beautiful and cozy design, surrounded by wine, dark woods, and leather detailing. Candlight dinner makes it a perfect choice for a date night, special romantic occasion or any type pf outing.

Food was delicious! Steaks are cooked perfectly according to your desire. Plenty of choices for appetizers, seafood, salads, and desserts. We found this jewel of a restaurant and it is worth it. We will be back!!
