Dinner was excellent but very expensive. It was probably worth the price tag, but I would say this is a special occasion spot and not a new place to become a regular, unless you live along West Paces. I look forward to coming back for an anniversary or birthday, but probably not the next date night.

Had an incredible dining experience at King + Duke! Such a beautiful restaurant with a prime location and excellent service. The food was insanely delicious, just sometimes a touch too expensive. Overall, an experience I’ll want to have again!

We had an amazing experience. The food was some of the best I've ever had. Unique twists on your favorite dishes. The flavors were absolutely delicious
Our server, Kazhan, was on top of everything, from suggestions to delivering the drinks and food quickly. The beverage manager provided pairing suggestions and the manager stopped by a couple times.
Highly recommend for a fine dining experience.

The flavors were intense and incredible! Crisp and fresh salads-had the little gem and the apple salad. The filet steaks were cooked perfectly, mushrooms were earthy almost like truffles, shrimp was succulent, and very well prepared trout! Great drinks and very attentive service. Can't wait to go back.

Dinner and Atmosphere was great. Would have liked to have had a few more than 6 menu choices and side options. The choices we made were great but a few more options would have helped with some of our picky eaters :). Service was great, just could have been a bit more timely after the main course. Would absolutely recommend.

The service was great. The food is interesting but pricey. The menu is a bit limited—probably Covid related. The value equation is not great. It was a lovely evening with friends and we enjoyed ourselves.

Our waiter Cassan (hoping I spelled it right..!) was really helpful tonight. It was my family's first time and he made it a pleasurable experience for us all. The only thing I would mention is that the food was overall quite salty for us across all dishes. But do note, I'm not criticizing the flavor itself because it was good-just salty for our taste. Everyone's got different lifestyles and preferences, so not saying the food was bad. :)

The food was too greasy, suggesting they are more interested in getting the patron's arteries clogged, than their taste buds satisfied. The place was also too noisy with Pecahtree traffic, and the service was awful.
We were charged for wine we did not order. Once this was corrected, we noticed they have now us for an extra main course we had not ordered. This was also at our expense and had to be corrected.
If you go there, scrutinize the check. Their billing mistakes seem to be habitual and at customer's expense.

Waiter was very nice but maybe covering too many tables we constantly were interrupted with the wrong food and our food was delivered to the neighboring table at one point. The serving staff was confused constantly with drinks and food between our table and the neighboring table. This took away from the experience some. Food overall was nice.

Made a reservation, was late, but the restaurant gave our table to somebody else. The only option was outside dining. The server covering the outside dining area had to be repeatedly reminded what was ordered, the table was wobbling, the service was sketchy and the food was not that great. A very disappointing experience after many years of good service and attention at King + Duke. Ive had better service at Carrabbas.

She was so well versed with menu options and such a pleasure to meet. Coming from out of town, this spot was so refreshing and definitely a place we'd visit again and again!

We have been here before and enjoyed it.

Last night was very disappointing. We did not see our server for 15 minutes. Then we decided not to order drinks and had menu question that we did not get answered till she showed up 15 minutes later. We decided to order dinner immediately because we were tired of waiting. The appetizer came out in about 5 minutes and it was good. Potato croquettes. We waited another 45 to 50 minutes for our entrees to come out. Server only stopped by once while we were waiting on our entree and she said the kitchen was backed up. The kitchen looked like it was moving in sloooowwww motion and an unorganized chaos.

By the time we got our entrees I was not feeling well because I was over hungry. My husband had the flounder which was decent and was unevenly cooked. Some parts were dry and some were good. And the fish was a uniform thickness. I had the chicken which was good. The best thing of the meal was the shared cauliflower.

Our group of friends had a great meal last night outside on the patio - it is a beautiful space but you do have to put up with the street noise on peachtree and all of the construction before you get to the front entrance. But everything else was really perfect - we had great service and a delicious meal. Highly recommend!
