Sunday night, not very crowded. Friendly staff, but, service slow and food slower to arrive. Prices a bit high for Atlanta ($51 duck entree) in a casual setting, and food was cold when served. Skipped dessert. 10+ minutes waiting to sign check after giving cc added insult. Too many choices in Atlanta for me to recommend this one.

King and Duke was amazing to work with for our event! They ended up putting us in a private room and provided excellent service for our friend's baby shower. Once the food started arriving at the table, I was sure we picked the right place to have this shower. I had the beet salad, biscuits and apple muffins. They were all amazing!

I'd recommend this place for the food AND the service!

We enjoyed a fantatsic brunch at King & Duke! We were in Atlanta from Fort Worth Texas to attend a concert. This restaurant popped up on Trip Advisor ,and was near our hotel. The portions were more than we could eat and each item we ordered was top notch. We wish we lived in Atlanta as we would frequent King & David more often and would have taken what we didnt eat home to enjoy later. We ordered the cinnamon rolls (2 were served), biscuits with butter and honey (three were served), french toast, and the mash with potatoes, braised short ribs, poached egg and onion. TWe really hope that the couple sitting next to us ate our last biscuit.. we offered...they were tempted! This meal was ample and would have easily served 4 adults for a satisfying Sunday morning brunch.

The Heritage pork chop is the best ever! Big enough for 2 to share. The best was so tender and moist. My husband was craving good pork chop and this place over delivered! I will return for sure when I get the chance to return to Buckhead.

Freezing cold room; even host and server agreed it was too cold. When we asked for a warmer spot, we were told it was all cold. The restaurant was almost empty when we dined at 1:15 on a Thursday, but it still took more than 20 minutes for our soups to arrive. We were disappointed that some of our favorites had been removed from the lunch menu, but what we did order was delicious. Maybe back, maybe not.

Everything about the restaurant is top notch, except for the amount of time that it took for the food to come out. We were on the early side of dinner service with maybe a third of the restaurant full and the food took well over an hour to come out. We had five entrees. Food was delicious, drinks were delicious, service was impeccable, but the food took way too long. Will come back and hope that the food comes out a bit quicker.

Usually love this place but very disappointed by the food. Ordered the 5 egg omelet and it came out incorrect (which is totally fine). However, when they had it remade and it came back to the table it looked very unappetizing. It was very messy with cheese melted everywhere and it just looked very unappetizing. Kitchen should have taken more time in remaking especially since I had to wait longer anyway.

So, my wife and I have a six month old baby girl--we used to frequent places like King + Duke. It had been awhile since we have had freedom to enjoy a night out. Tonight was the first date-night in a good while. We had a reservation at 8:30. We arrived 30 minutes prior and had a very pleasant time at the bar. Eventually, we moved to our table and Dwayne, our server, greeted us promptly. I asked him for suggestions for a starter and they were spot on--the lobster fritters are delicious. We ordered our food--my wife the duck and the lamb ribs for me. Dwyane also suggested the acorn squash as a side--it was mind-blowingly good. Two fantastic suggestions from him. My wife's duck was amazing as well. Unfortunately, the lamb ribs were so burnt that the bones broke when I tried to separate them. Within five minutes of figuring this out, a manager asked how our meal was unprompted. I hate to complain but showed him the ribs and he said they never should have made it out of the kitchen. He asked me if I would like them to prepare the same thing or something other in it's place. I opted for the duck. He then said he would be taking both off our bill--above and beyond service. Dwyane continued to be a stellar server and apologize even though it most certainly was not his doing. We finished our meal, paid, and made sure to tip our server extra for his great service and the food that was removed from our bill. Even though something went wrong with the meal, King + Duke was so classy in rectifying the situation, that I feel more strongly about their establishment.

It was fine. Food was a bit overpriced for the quality. We ordered the $16 shrimp appetizer which came with 5 pieces of shrimp. The shells were extremely hard to peel off. Unusually hard.

Our waitress Lauren was absolutely superb. From start to finish, she made our meal feel so special - from suggestions, to stories, she kept us engaged the entire time. We left the table feeling like she welcomed us in to her own restaurant and served us some of her favorite food.

We had the lamb ribs to start and the mushroom risotto. My friend had the duck which was prepared perfectly and we also ordered the chicken, also very good.
The downfall is that the dishes do not come with sides so you need to order them separately.

Service was really impressive. Took my wife and a few friends for her 40th birthday.
Food - The apps were very good. We did the two feast options on the menu which were a large bone in steak and a whole Turbot fish. I was a little disappointed in that the steak was more medium well than medium rare, which we ordered. I also thought the fish was just okay. The potato side dish was actually very good and probably our favorite of the entree course.

Our server was super friendly and helpful. Also offered some complimentary bubbles with dessert for my wife’s birthday, which was a nice surprise.

I’d definitely recommend again, but would probably steer people from the feast options unless they were better.

I have to admit it had been while since I’d dined at King + Duke... well that will soon change! It was a lovely experience. Our table of seven (for a friend’s birthday dinner) had a delicious meal. Our server, Cameron, was great! He even presented the birthday girl with a card signed by all of the servers! That is just one example of the top notch customer service that we experienced. Aside from the attentive staff, the food was divine. We also enjoyed the delicious cocktails and well-curated wine selections. Thank you so much for such a lovely evening. ❤️

Great atmosphere. The chicken was good but was cooked in a lot of oil and rosemary. Greasy. And it was unclear from the menu that sides are ordered separately.
