It was my our 4 year wedding anniversary, and my wife and I could not have had a better meal. The food was so amazing. An absolutely unforgettable culinary adventure. The staff was beyond attentive and accommodating that we felt like part of the family. We would like to thank everyone for helping us celebrate this momentous occasion!

we really enjoyed our meal at H&F. I had a Galapagos cocktail and it was amazing! The food was great, as was the service. The only negative was that they ran out of their famous hamburger. Because they have a fairly limited entree menu, you would think that they would make sure not to run out of one the items.

Server was overly energetic and really eager to turn the table. Unfortunately it tainted the evening. Food was great as expected.

Every part of my meal at Holeman and Finch was perfect. Their strip, with bleu cheese butter, was the best, most perfectly cooked steak I have ever had. I was treated like royalty, or even better, like family. The quality both in service and in food abounded. I thoroughly enjoyed every second of my experience. 11/10 would recommend!

Great oysters, pork rinds, and tartare. Sweetbreads weren't the best I've had, but were still tasty. Sticky toffee dessert was a highlight.

Much-lauded cocktails lacked in both presentation and flavor. Kitchen overwhelmed and could not get items and courses out at the proper time. Creative menu, but just not that tasty. I would not risk going here at this particular time.

Staff was pleasant and made the effort to come out and explain why everything was late, but ultimately that did not compensate for a bad dining experience.

The experience was interesting. We were brought some hard rolls with pickles and mayo which was weird. I ordered the bacon Carmel corn which was stale, the cheese burger which doesn’t come with lettuce and tomato and I was told that it would be $2 for a slice of tomato and $2 for a slice of lettuce. The manager came to our table which I didn’t ask for him and explained it was because the lettuce was coming from their $12 salad and not iceberg are you kidding me? I hate being nickel and dimed especially at a restaurant that is supposed to be posh. The burger was good but give me a break. I’ve eaten at all the Taos, Cipriani, Giannis, Barton G and many more great restaurants and have never experienced such foolishness. I will pass.

This place is on point with the drinks and the food. Yeah, it can run you a little coin, but if you go in for a couple early evening drinks and hit up a few items on the menu, you'll be right as rain ready in the mood for the later night. Tip these cats well because they're gonna take care of you.

Watch your bill. Great servers, two were amazing, but wife has celiac so were warned not to have fries. On the bill there were two upcharges (1 for $4 and 1 for $8) for because we didn't have the fries, one for big chunks of cucumber. Ruined the experience that H&F would do this. After years of going there, no more. Don't mind paying but hate this kind of undisclosed charging.

The restaurant lost its character when it changed from a tapas menu to a limited graze and appetizer with main dish dinner. The trout was the smallest portion I have ever seen. Luckily I shared my hamburger that wasn't as special as it used to be.

I will save the drive and find someplace else.

I tought was a hamburguer house. They have one of the best burguers in town. I will not try other food.
It is a familiar place: great! cordial people helped us.
I will visit again in the future.

We waited almost 2 hours to get sat even though we had our reservation. A table I guess was over their 2 hour slot and the restaurant had no where else to put our table of 4.

Nice, inventive cocktail to start, house made Hungarian salami along with the house made pimento cheese were great starters. It's easy to see why their burger is so highly rated. The service was fun and spot on, making a good meal better. Thanks!

Holman and Finch had been our favorite restaurant for casual dining in Atlanta.
We have dined here time after time for years.
This one experience was way below expectations
As a matter of fact, bad enough to consider not going back
1) the reservation for 5 was not honored ( we sat at a table for 4)
2) the menu has changed for the worse
3) the food was mediocre at the best, both in the choice of dishes and in the cooking execution
I hope that this was a hiccup.. we will recover and see later..

Overpriced and unpalatable cocktails. Overpriced and underwhelming entrees. My dining companion apologized and said the place used to be better. Apparently they've recently changed their menu. The service was good, but otherwise I felt like I spent a lot of money for a sub-par meal I could have gotten at Longhorn/Outback or another chain restaurant.

This was our first selection of restaurants in our tribute to Anthony Bourdain and it did not disappoint. The food, drinks, and service were absolutely gorgeous. We tried sweetbreads for the first time and it was a tasty mixture of sweet and savory. The accompanying sauce and seasonal vegetables were a perfect pairing. Highly recommend

Disappointed dad on Father’s Day: party of four, seated promptly at reservation, table closest to kitchen (not good) Friendly service, was told less than four burgers left, so we asked waiter to quickly reserve our order. They brought one burger early saying that they made a mistake with someone else’s order.

Did not serve two other burgers until 30 min later. First diner had finished their meal. Fourth person was served after that. WTF? No offer was made to adjust the tab of $146. Food was tasty, but not enough to outweigh downsides of our experience.

I used to love coming to HandF. But now it’s a different vibe entirely. From service to food options. The tables are too close together. The menu was not what was posted on here. Nothing looked appetizing. We sat at the bar because our table was ON TOP of another party. Ordered drinks at the bar. It took them 15 MINUTES. We saw our drinks being made. Then they stopped making it. Added another 5 minutes. So we just ended up leaving and took our service elsewhere. Didn’t even drink or eat a thing. I’m so disappointed in what used to be an amazing place I looked forward to going to every week.

Our waitress guided us around the menu suggesting a wonderful gluten-free option (the Johnnie cakes) and recommending the burger. Both dishes lived up to billing and are different from what you can get at other gastropubs. We'll definitely be returning!

Normally I don't take the time to review restaurants but the Service was awful at this restaurant. I had to give my drink order twice and when I asked the waitress about the trout she told me it was terrible. Who says that about the food in their restaurant? I thought she was kidding at first. The management of this restaurant needs to do so more training. And then they brought all the "small plates" out at the same time rather than pace them, so we basically were done with our meal in 20 minutes even though we were out for a casual evening of fine dining. When we asked them to slow it down they said they weren't sure if they could by then. There were no serving spoons for any of the food. The food was mediocre. The fish in the fish and chips tasted like it had been pulled from the local sewage plant. I would not ever recommend this restaurant.

This place exceeded my expectations... The HF burger is out of this world. The carbonara is one of the better tasting ones I’ve had... if you want a detectable dessert, try to the toffee pudding, you won’t be disappointed. I would definitely come here again, next time I’m in Atlanta.

H&F is one of my favorite Atlanta restaurants - it never disappoints. The fried buffalo chicken skins are ridiculously good.
