Such a classy place, with excellent food and beverages. The wine and liquor selection is amazing, and the food is always good - steaks cooked perfectly. I tried the fish for the first time and it was outstanding as well. The wait staff is professional and friendly at the same time, and are not at all intrusive. Never feel rushed here, and it's quiet enough that you can carry on a conversation. It's my go-to special occasion place, but is also approachable for more frequent dining.

FROM THE TIME YOU WALK IN, AND EXPERIENCE THE JAZZ COMING OVER THE SOUND SYSTEM TO THE FIRST CLASS SERVICE. BUCKHEADS IS A DINING EXPERIENCE. THE FOOD WAS EXQUISITE, THE TUNA STARTERS WERE SPOT ON, AND THE STEAKS COOKED PERFECTLY, PECAN PIE FOR DESSERT WAS THE BEST I HAVE EVER HAD. THE PRICE WAS WELL WORTH IT.

The food was outstanding. My only gripe is that I booked a 5:45 reservation because I was told there was nothing around 6:00-6:30. It was almost 6:00 when we got the “process” started. But my real gripe is that 2/3 of the dining room was not occupied. I wonder why I could not get a later reservation.

We have been to Buckhead’s on many occasions and Friday night was exceptional. We have never had such an outstanding experience as we had on Friday night. From our table which was a booth in the back which was Very quiet for a nice romantic evening. Our waiter, Ryan, did a phenomenal job of caring for us without being intrusive. The food was outstanding and probably the best grouper that I’ve ever had. The wine by the glass selection was good. We will definitely return.

We have been going to Buckhead's for almost 25 years. We dined there on Valentine's Day and we had great service even though it is one of their busiest nights. We shared a calamari appetizer that was a very large portion. The waiter recommended a wine that we enjoyed. My filet was delicious - perfectly cooked, tender and great flavor. My boyfriend ordered a rib eye and found it to be overly fatty. Both the waiter and the manager offered to bring him a new steak and the manager explained that they could have a steak that did not meet their normal standards accidentally make it through the inspection process. Even though we said a new steak was not necessary, the manager still appeared at our table shortly with a new rib eye steak that was not overly fatty and very flavorful. That extra effort to make things right demonstrates that they appreciate their customers.

Valentine's Day and we expected the restaurant to be very busy. The kitchen got way behind and we had a very long wait from our salads to the main course. Our waiter kept apologizing and the wait dragged on. The food was great as always, service was also spot on. We will be back. Just not for Valentine's Day.

Best steak of my life. I am not sure I will ever eat another steak anywhere else. The meat was cooked perfectly. The service was polite. The table next to us (party of 4), was loud enough that we could have participated in the entire conversation, so that was less than desirable.

For a very special occasion the cost was well worth it, but certainly cannot dine here often.

Outstanding food, large portions, and sophisticated and romantic ambiance. The only negative was that our waiter asked us as soon as we sat down if we wanted to order a drink. I told him we needed to look at the menu first. Then he gave us a few minutes

Love to celebrate birthdays at Buckheads - best veal chop in town & my husband's favorite. Unfortunately my filet was medium and not medium rare. Even with that, we'll be back.

The ambience is superb; seating is comfortable and not crowded and the general décor is upscale. Our party of four ordered steak (2 filets, 2 strips) med-rare; 3 out of 4 were med. Sides were OK. The escargots was very good and the drinks excellent. It was a pricey for the quality of the food. The service was very good.

For this level of steak I would have expected perfection. At 52.00 for filet mignon it was lacking in quality and was not nearly perfect. Lessons can be taken from River Stone Chophouse in Suffolk VA. River Stone is more perfection quality. I do have to speak to the excellent service at Buckhead's, Thank you. The tables are a bit small for a party of four, we noticed the cramped space as we started to receive our plated dishes along with drinks wine/water, bread/butter. All in all a fair experience but only for parties of 2 and a bit over priced for the quality.

Steaks were cooked perfectly, delicious lobster bisque, great service from Shawn. My husband & I were celebrating birthdays & given complimentary desserts. Nice décor reminded me of some of the places we saw in England. Extensive wine list for all budgets. This was our first visit and we look forward to more.
