We’ve been looking for a Sunday roast in Atlanta for 6 years and finally found it! Delicious roast meat and trimmings, wonderful apps and excellent service. We will be back.

If you go to king + duke, make sure you get their spanish octo and salt and pepper mushrooms as your appetizers. They are just an explosion of flavors in your palate. If you can come by on a Sunday and enjoy their Sunday roast, only make sure you leave enough space after your appetizers or share it because its a big boy serving we are talking about here. I wish i could remember the name of our server but from the moment we sat he took care of us with attentive and intuitive service without being stuffy, overall amazing service on his part. Thank you to the King + Duke team for a memorable belated NYE date night with my girlfriend.

The prefix NYE menu was AWFUL! It did not reflect the quality of their daily menu by any stretch of the imagination. And our server was rude and snippy. She left our table in such a hurry every time that she kept forgetting to take our drink order. And she never came back to offer us a second round of drinks.

Very pleasant dining experience for New Years Eve. Fixed price menu was a bit expensive but given the holiday and COVID reduced seating we felt it was reasonable. Wine pairings, which were an option, were also nicely done.

Our server Gerard was incredible! We wanted to only eat outside during Covid and he did all he could to make sure we were warm (moved the heater to a better spot), delivered our meal hot and promptly. He made fantastic suggestions and felt like he really enjoyed taking care of us. Loved the meal he suggested and especially his service.

We had a party of 10. The valet was tricky, the reception was rude. Our waiter Ashley was AWESOME!! i had the lobster at $44 and it was TINY! Probably 3bites per side. We spent well over $1000 for a birthday dinner . To celebrate our friends birthday, the restaurant gave her 2scoops of sorbet. Really??!!! I would have been embarrassed to have served that... we ended up ordering 6 desserts at about $8- $15 each. Everyone except my hisbands (steak)meals were subpar for the price. Not sure i would go back.... too many other restaurants that would LoVE to have our business!

King and Duke carries a great ambiance and had a great location. Especially in the spring and summer with use of the patio. Their staff are professional and courteous. It is a great spot to have a drink or date night. As far as the food, I was not impressed at all. Also some of the menu descriptions needs additional explanation like the Duke. Who knew is was a hamburger with 3 types of meat. If I were to go back it would be for drinks at the bar.

My friends and I had an interesting experience at King + Duke. I’ll start with the good - we enjoyed the ambiance. The drinks were good. The beef dripping fries and toffee pudding were great as well. My friends also raved about the onion soup. We ordered the scallops and chicken for dinner. The scallops were great, but the chicken...first, the manager came out and said the chef didn’t like how one of the chickens turned out so they were re-cooking it. Shortly thereafter, they brought the food to the table, and all was well until we cut into the chicken. It was practically raw in the middle. The last time I received half cooked chicken, I was at Chilis. We were pretty disappointed but just called the waiter back to the table and told him the chicken wasn’t done. He apologized and took the chicken back to the kitchen. The manager brought the chicken back to the table, apologized, and said “please let me know if this chicken is cooked to your liking”. To my knowledge, chicken is either done or it’s not. We didn’t order a steak. I was kind of at a lost for words in that moment. When the waiter came back, I asked if there was another manager available. There was not. I explained the issue to him around why the manager’s comment was a bit offensive, and he admitted that they did not even look at the chicken - they had assumed that the chicken was just not cooked “well enough”. Although they removed the chicken from the bill, I was very disappointed in how they handled the situation. Even though we were the table that was served raw chicken, the manager was making her way to other tables making small talk with other guests. I will not be returning.

Family night at the King & Duke what way to end Black Friday with fantastic drinks, amazing food and some of the best staff, chefs and servers ever. Started with Drinks like the El Diablo or the new drink from bartender “ Drink with No Name “ can’t wait to see what they name it of course I had several I say. On to the gulf shrimp starter and the Octopus. Oh I almost forgot the cheese popovers hot damn they are perfect to sopping up the sauce from the gulf shrimp. Next was the “The Duke “, the bar steak & “the lazy man lobster “ was slapping GOOD! On to the desserts the ice cream sundae and apple pear pie with Ice cream was just perfect to cap off dinner. Dwayne was our server and he was awesome of course the rest of the staff were awesome even down to the point of bringing my wife a congratulations card for completing her chemo treatments and battling breast cancer. What a way to celebrate. King & Duke Ford Fry is at the top of my list of best restaurants in Atlanta.

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.
