I was so excited about F&B as my husband and I are always looking for good restaurants and we love French food. Unfortunately, we will not be going back.
Our first impression was a rude hostess (who should not be in the hospitality business). We were obviously an inconvenience to her and didn't greet us when we walked in (she just said "two?") and then took us to a table, blocked me from getting to the table and didn't wish us a good lunch. Surly! The music was on a radio station which was playing a commercial for an Atlanta Mercedes Benz dealership -- they don't have Sirius XM? What is this Waffle House?
The waiter for our area was MIA so another guy helped us but wasn't friendly or helpful. I felt bad for him because he seemed to be the only server on the floor. Our tea glasses were always empty and we weren't offered dessert. I ordered escargot which were a big disappointment -- bland and served with thin bread toasts which couldn't be used to sop up the butter garlic sauce...which really wasn't a heartache since the sauce was pretty sad. The onion soup was okay.
For a $60 lunch, I had hoped we'd do better than "poor".
F&B was delicious, and it was a really fun time for me and my husband. It is a great atmosphere and has beautiful surroundings.
Delicious hearty food. Friendly, helpful staff. I can eat here everyday!
The food was just ok, especially compared to other notable French restaurants in Buckhead (like Le Bilboquet, Bistro Niko, or Anis). My friends both ordered the skate, which was over floured before pan frying (possibly in oil that wasn't hot enough), so the outside of the skate wing was greasy and soggy, instead of crunchy. The portion of fish was tiny. I ordered the ribeye which was a very nice cut, but the sauce that accompanied it (some kind of oily tomato relish?) really muddied the flavor of the steak. I also ordered the steak medium, and it arrived very red and cold in the middle (definitely rare). The service was nice, but not noteworthy. For the prices, I'd head somewhere else.
Great food. New decor, same comfy ambience
Our second great dining experience at F & B. Our server, Steve, was awesome. Again, the food was amazing. Can’t wait to go back! 5 stars F & B!
Amazing food - from the mussel appetizer (dipping bread in the broth is amazing!) to the scallops and beef bourguignon entrees. Everything was seasoned well and cooked perfectly. Waiter was attentive and pleasant, and manager came to check on our meals and service. Very nice dinner.
The food was phenomenal! The lobster dish & french onion soup are a must! If the service improved, it would be my top go to spot in Buckhead.
This was our first time at F&B. We will definitely go back. The food was delicious and our server, Steve, was amazing. What a beautiful restaurant too!
Excellent food and service! One of our favorite Atlanta restaurants! Highly recommend!
