Thoroughly enjoyed a night with King & Duke! Staff is very friendly and our server was so knowledgeable and provided great recommendations to us. The food was so full of flavor and did not disappoint! Highly recommend the lamb belly bites and the scallop dish. Will definitely be going back!!

lovely venue, good vibe, beautiful decor, very quiet and safe. Octopus, pear & persimmon were excellent. The halibut was undercooked (raw in the middle), was not filet (boney), and my partner did not want to speak up about it bc the service was so slow, we didn't want to wait any longer to eat. The 4 scallops for $56 was outrageous, but the were delicious. We declined dessert because the service was so slow. It took 2 hours to dine, without cocktails, or dessert. Not sure if we'll be back.

Called to get guidance on parking.
The person who answered was not able to help (she didn’t know where customers were to park). Ended up street parking. The table was noisy but the food was good.

We really wanted to love our experience here, but it was just disappointing. We were hoping since they were open during COvid, they would take extra precaution not to fill the restaurant, but it was basically packed when we arrived. That made us pretty nervous to be so surrounded by people. The bread service is always a treat, so that was fun! For appetizer, we ordered the shrimp and it was fantastic! As soon as our appetizer came out, we ordered our entrees. Our entrees took OVER ONE HOUR to come out. Not sure what happened in the kitchen, but it was way too long. By the time the entrees came out, we were so past hungry, that I we couldn't enjoy the rest of the meal. I sent my entree back; it tasted off. And my Husband just asked for his food to be packed up, so we could go home.

The waitress was very kind and apologetic, but we knew it wasn't her fault. It was just a frustrating situation. She offered us a virgin cocktail (cause I'm pregnant & we don't really drink). But we just had a terrible experience for the 3rd time.

Outdoor area is perfect during Covid. Food was really good, but a few lighter options would have been nice. Wine list is short, but the options are all good. Overall, it was a really good experience for casual, upscale dining.

I’d like to recognize our Server - Julia - for outstanding service. For her 2nd day at K&D - a 10!
Our friends suggested the shrimp appetizer - great. K&D offered a lobster special - well worth it. I stayed with my King & Duke burger - always a classic. A “Birthday desert/toast” topped off the evening. K&D still reigns!

We asked for outside seating noting Covid concerns and the spacing/ambiance was also very good

Yes. Book. Reserve. Done.
We had a hungry party of five, listened to Jillian and the freshest suggestions. The Chef knows their market and served. We are from SD, and foodies, K+ D delivered all courses.
Lobster, scallops, and burger 5+, dessert brownie alamode, toffee yummy goodness, and apple pie in fresh, relevant, accompaniments.
Bravo, Chef and staff. Jillian, amazing!

This was a dinner friends! I called and told them we a party of ten. When we got there the King & Duke went above and beyond to treat us right. They put us in a private dining room over looking the city of Atlanta. The Server was perfect and on point she was awesome.

The food was outstanding as always. The Duck shank OMG it was perfect. The Duke burger, Georgia shirmp, scallops, popovers, Sticky toffee dessert everything was fantastic.

Will be trying to the King the next there.

We requested outdoor seating and were granted the request. The measures taken to ensure our safety were followed and enforced by all the employees (mask, distancing and proper sanitization). This was much appreciated to see. We've always enjoyed the food and ambiance at King+Duke but had not been since the pandemic. We felt safe there and look forward to our next visit.

King & Duke was good. My one complaint would be our table location. They put us in a really awkward spot at the front of the restaurant where there was way too much traffic to place a table.

Frustrating for sure

We love King and Duke and have been many times. The menu had been significantly reduced, and the only things left were fairly unimaginative, bare bones entrees... pretty disappointed, and quite different from our past experiences there. Food was good, but didn’t leave me yearning to come back as I had in the past. Probably will consider another place for our next big occasion.

Service was good as always, and still love sitting outside on the patio.

From the drinks, to the appetizers, to the meal, to the service, our group of 9 all had a great time and likely had tried more than half the items on the menu, which were all spot on. Our servers also did a great job, all around good time.
