At Tom Colicchio's Craftbar, the casual elegance of rustic cooking is delicately illustrated by melding seasonal ingredients to create amazingly flavorful fare. The menu changes according to season. Craftbar's rustic and comfortable dining room lends itself equally to a full-length dinner or a snack at the bar.

    Saturday evening was the last night this great restaurant will be open. This is such a great loss for Atlanta. We ate here on a regular basis and NEVER had a bad food experience. Exceptional food and exceptional staff!! This restaurant will be missed.

    Our first and last visit since they are closing in February. We enjoyed it so we were sad to see them go. Even though they were closing, the services was wonderful.

    We were expecting a bit more from this restaurant, frankly. Warm & cozy interior, although we were seated next to a drafty door overlooking traffic. Our waiter was inattentive and seemed bored. The pimento cheese and deviled egg appetizers were nothing special and over salted, although the dense and tasty grilled bread with the pimento cheese was one of the best things we had all night. The grilled endive came with large chewy cubes of bacon and way too much thick bleu cheese dressing. The hanger steak was overcooked and not very tender. The star of the evening was the hamburger with tomato jam and perfect fries. Good wine list. The moral of this story: Good burger place, skip the rest. It's closing soon, so we'll see what's next.

    While the service was good, the food was only 'okay'. It was on par with Dogwood which I also thought was only 'okay' but actually more expensive. I've had better food at The Atlanta Fish Market. Service was very good but the good was only mediocre. My husband's salmon was very salty. He said he doubted I could have eaten it. My pasta dish (veal meatballs) was fine. For the price, I probably would not recommend this as a 'must' restaurant to go to in Atlanta. Dessert was fine but also not what I would expect from this type restaurant. Overall, there are better restaurants in Atlanta in this price range.

    I have enjoyed Craft/Craftbar since they opened and am so sorry to hear that they are closing. We made a special point of going this week when we heard the news. It is ashame that Atlanta is losing so many great restaurants due to the economy.

    We had very high expectations and were not dissapointed. The food was inventive and perfect for the season. The star of the show was the grilled pork chop - best we ever had! We had to ask the secret and were told the chop was brined overnight. Shazam! We have always brined our T-day turkey, but never considered other meats. Our server was clearly a foodie himself and told us about an article he had just read on brining all kinds of meat...and then offered to scan the article and email it to us. Now that is service!!! The highest marks all the way around for Craftbar!

    This was my third time to Craftbar. It was less impressive than previous visits. The food was just OK, but the service was pretty terrible. Coffee should be fresh and served with the proper utensils and condiments. A steak requires a steak knife. That old coffee could at least get a single top off. The bread dishes on the table lead one to expect that there would be bread service, but it never materialized. It's not that these are "big" issues, but it's a pain to have to crane one's neck around repeatedly in hopes of catching the waiter's eye to request something that should have been offered. There is more, but no room...

    While Craft is a trendy restaurant that definitely fits the "modern American cuisine" cookie cutter, the food is rather bland and the service level is below that of the Huddle House off Moreland at 2am, no joke. We went for our anniversary and received some of the worst service that we have ever received from any restaurant. The service was so bad that it took us 30 minutes to order appetizers because we were debating if we should just leave or wait and hope that the food quality was worth the poor service. Long story short, it's not. On a brighter note, the view is amazing at night and this would be the perfect location for a bar function (networking event, etc.) just not for something that requires anything more than bar service.

    The food is excellent,if pricey. Interesting menu choices from local sources make for a meal that is not ordinary, but still approachable and enjoyable. Staff is willing to allow diners time to enjoy their meal and their company without pushing to get in another seating - much appreciated.

    "fried" risotto needs a lot more flavor. Prosciuto panini was fairly good, but it seemed more like a cuban sandwich. I'm not giving up on the restaurant, but I hope more of their dishes are flavorable. Even though it's a "bar," it was a bit formal for me.

    My experience at Craftbar is what going out to a restaurant is supposed to be like. Excellent service on every part including the valet. The food was superb....the soups were especially flavorful (I had Cauliflower Chorizo and my finace had Pumpkin). The Pork Ravioli makes my mouth water just thinking about it. We'll be back for sure.

    Would have preferred some warning that the shrimp and grits were more Cajun style than creamy. I ordered wrong not knowing it would vary that much from the classic. The veal meatballs and pasta were much better. The salad was excellent too and the cauliflower/chorizo soup was well inspired-my husband truly enjoyed it!

    To be frank, this experience was disappointing. Our server was consumed with other tables to the point that we had to flag down the host and have him put in our order. We waited 20+ minutes between courses and the portions are small for what you pay. We won't be back.

    I would love to give Craftbar "Outstanding" for Food. Unfortunately, I ordered nothing more exciting than bacon and eggs - which were wonderful, but I am still beating myself up that I didn't have a dish more emblematic of Craft's heart and skill. Had I done that, thus believing that I truly had the Craft food experience, I could rate Food higher. Otherwise, the service was superb - seldom have I been taken care of so thoroughly. Looking forward to returning asap.

    My wife and I are big fans of Craft in NYC and LV, so we were really suprised how dissappointing the experience was in their Atlanta location. Our waitress took our order and then we never saw her again. The bus boy delivered our food and our check, but nobody asked if we wanted another drink, though our glasses had been empty since the appetizer. Alas, some of this behavior would have been easily explained had the restaurant been busy, but on a Tuesday night, it was only half full. I'm a big beleiver in the free market system, and I'm betting that Craft wont make long in Atlanta unless they revamp staff training to have a more service-centric model. You can bet I'll still go when I'm in NYC though.

    The setting was stylish, the food quite good, but the service was slow and inexplicably complacent. We were seated for 45 minutes before we were allowed to order food, and during that time our drinks were drained dry with no offer of assistance. I mentioned to the manager, who replied, "we have relaxed serivce here. If you would like to 'speed up' your meal, I'll let the server know you are in a hurry." Uh, no.
