We appreciate them being open but the service was slow and the food was not good . Cocktail sauce tasted like vinegar , no kale , no spinach , baked beans tasted like they opened a can and put them in a bowl . It’s unfortunate because I’ve been there in the past and my experience was much better that’s why I returned . I’d recommend that if you can’t do things 100% you shouldn’t open yet . The chef needs training .
The experience was terrible from the start. I booked standard seating and upon arrival was told the wait would be 45 minutes and I could sit at the bar or a high-top.
We sat at a high-top, both my date and I ordered medium-well ribeyes. My steak was delivered medium-well and her’s was ”well” done. After complaining to the server the manager came and asked my date to cut into the center to see if steak was pink inside. Which in my mind is inappropriate. If a customer is complaining about their food a good manager should immediately correct the issue instead of challenging the customer’s truthfulness. The manager agreed the steak was well-done. The replacement steak was “medium“ at best and not medium-well as ordered. The replacement steak had blood running out of it when cut. Again, we complained the steak wasn’t prepared as ordered and again instead of the manager immediately suggesting a fix, he stated they can’t guarantee the cooking result. Then after further discussion he suggested cooking it longer. At that point we decided against the steak and ordered dessert. My date was clearly disappointed. And so was I.
I decided to tip the server 20%. I’m sure if she got the order right in the first place. I’m convinced it wasn’t her fault the management is terrible, and they shouldn’t allow the booking of standard seating when the bar is the only seating available.
Awful, while portions were large the quality for the price did not match.
I frequent Dantannas, it is one of my fave restaurants. Unfortunately, the ambience and crowd had completely changed. Our table was not ready on time, and the service was slow.
Overall, the food, service and atmosphere was good, not great, but good. I have no complaints. My wife and I enjoyed the cigar bar that was attached to the restaurant. I ordered the lamb chops w/asparagus and my wife ordered the peppered salmon with spinach.
Wait time to receive food was extremely long. Also it was freezing in there. And my sister was not happy with her braise chicken.
The food was horrible. The mac and cheese watery. The load potatoes was cold
The service was not great with the food taking an extended amount of time to come out, however the manager was proactive by discounting the bill. The tables were to close to other parties which they could listen to your discussion as well as you with their's. Lastly the atmosphere was not was I expected being such a expensive restaurant. Overall for the price, atmosphere, and service i would not go back nor suggest anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion in the future.

Fantastic Salmon and the appetizers were all good! Dante is an excellent server!
Great steaks and oysters
Great and friendly environment! The food was delicious and I loved the Maestro Margarita!
Here is the initial issue which colored our visit. We were promptly seated at 6:30 on a Friday evening. We waited at our table, not tended to, for 21 minutes. That is simply not acceptable. We saw a party of 4 who came after we did leave due to a lack of attention. I am assuming a lack of communication on the part of the hostess and wait staff.
Anyway, my adult daughter went to the podium and told them we'd been there for more than 20 minutes with no greeting, water, no drink orders, etc. Within minutes a very nice server arrived and all was taken care of. She said, "I didn't know you were here!" Sad to say, but this initial 20 minutes of initial 'invisibility, in an uncrowded restaurant, put a crimp in the evening. My daughter's steak was $50 but similar to a Longhorn-type quality. I had the $18 Beyond Burger...so I can't really complain about that. It is what it is. Reasonably nice place, but Buckhead has TOO many places as alternate food sources to make this a destination restaurant again.
Very so so....ok at best.
Not impressed. Very basic brunch. For a staple restaurant in Atlanta very outdated.
In all honesty I didn't know it was a sports bar. But the food wasn't that great and it was too smoky and hot in there. Plus the server was emotionless.
Absolutely disgusting.. dirty restaurant. stick to table.. floors dirty.. table sticky... no one should put up with torn Naugahyde seating.. and all the rest of nasty.. this restaurant has not been updated in yrs.. now.. service was horrible.. food came.. HOT PLATE ...and food was cold.. truly disgusting.. we sat around for such a long time and server didn't hear out app order.. wow.. absolutely nasty .. it is an insult to anyone who goes here.. the conditions are revolting. Never received water ordered 2x inexcusable.. and manager asked a lot too late and not the best response...
Took my man here for his birthday and we were severely underwhelmed by the service. My steak was good but his gigantic bone in rib shank was mostly fat and not that great. We expected more from this place, especially for the location and price.
We had reservations as a group to sit in the Cigar section and have a late lunch. Area was dirty, services was bad. Had to ask for a waiter, silverware, menu’s. Won’t go back.
The food was really good but the service was slow and mediocre at best. The venue could also use some updates. Many of the TV screens at the bar were outdated.
Dantanna's and Buckhead Cigar Lounge are a pleasant surprise in Buckhead. The food was fantastic and the personnel is top-notch.
Loved the blackened crab claws!
I even got a second order to go.
Edwin was AWESOME! He made it a great experience.... his knowledge of the menu was impressive and his recommendations were spot on. We will definitely be back!
The service was great and the food was outstanding. I would definitely eat here again and again
Good food, friendly service, reasonable prices. Would go back again on our next trip to Atlanta.
Meeting a visiting friend from out of town. Reservation was easy however restaurant appeared unclean. The temperature outside was extremely hot and there was no working A/C in restaurant. As best as waitress tired to be accommodating, she failed to bring waters citing no clean glasses available. We later had to wait for straws to be brought. Bill was incorrect and although General Manager extended his apologies he did nothing to offer or comp meals for poor atmosphere/service. I do not recommend and will not visit in the future.
Entree was good. Some sides unavailable. Some side that we got were not hot even though they came out fast. We did get there at 530 so they were just getting spun up for dinner time.
Made the reservation for 5:15pm to give the staff time to open after 5pm. Was greeting instantly and had a choice of tables - that's where the service stopped. Sat with my Mom for almost 20-minutes before a server asked us if we wanted water; I asked for water with no ice, but got water with ice. We put in our appetizer and food order immediately; took about 20-minutes for appetizer. In the middle of just getting started on appetizer, food came out. Didn't have what was ordered, so a side order was brought out after. When our guests arrived - their appetizers did appear, but no drinks and no food order was taken even after 25-minutes. Once the food order was taken, half was incorrect so by this time we just gave up on the service. Not offered any desert or coffee, just the bill was presented to us. It wasn't even busy until we were leaving - which was about 8pm. Good location but horrible horrible service for the price.
I ordered Hennessy and was given VSOP without being given the option to choose something else.
