Cameron was a terrific server, professional and personable. Quiet night due to the Coronavirus, so no one was seated near us. Food was delicious.

We sat outside & enjoyed watching Buckhead go by. Try the beef dripping fries, you’ll thank me later, they were out of this world!

Took a large group from work to dinner here and we loved everything about the experience, from the sublime service to the excellent food to the attractive presentation to the restaurant itself. Can't wait to come back.

The service, ambiance, and cocktails are all outstanding! I went for happy hour with a girl friend and we had a great time out on the covered deck. The food portions are too small. Our server said all food was large enough to share between two but we did not find that to be true. We shared the gnocchi entree and I could count the number of gnocchi I got on one hand.

King + Duke is always consistent - 5 star food & 5 star service - no matter what. The depth of flavors that the kitchen is able to achieve is unbeatable, and appreciate the ever-changing, seasonally fresh options. Our server, Dre, was not only very knowledgeable about the menu and gave great recommendations, but was also personable & charming. The cherry on top of this sundae was the surprise Prosecco night cap on the house - thank you thank you!

This is probably the most overpriced restaurant for what you get in Buckhead. Food is good but not as good as the prices would indicate. Plus, the menu is extremely limited.

Most of us got mahi-mahi and I couldn’t eat it. It was extremely salty and way over seasoned and overcooked. I had had salmon there for lunch the week before and it was perfection. I’m very disappointed in the entrée. The sides were good. The calamari was good but also way too much seasoning.

Excellent service and amazing food! We went on a Monday night to celebrate a birthday. They went above and beyond to make sure the guest of honor was taken care of, including bringing out complimentary appetizers and a round of drinks. The food was so good- it was worth every penny!

Cool atmosphere and drinks were goods Dinner was ok. Unfortunately we ordered a medium rare steak and it was pretty tough and not medium rare. We had trouble cutting the steak even with our steak knives. A little disappointing.

Our experience at King + Duke was fantastic! We enjoyed a pre fixe menu and wine pairing for Valentine's Day, and we were very impressed with the options. The lobster toast and the pressed lamb were especially delicious. Our server was knowledgeable, professional and friendly. The overall ambiance was vibrant, welcoming and fun. I can't wait to go back!

I took my parents out for Valentine’s Day and enjoyed the fixed price offerings with the wine pairing. The lobster toast was all claw meat on a wonderful thick piece of toast with mornay sauce. Loved it.

My mother had the most tender NY strip we’d ever had. Beautifully prepared.

The fish entree was spectacular.

Chris, our server, was as present as we needed and provided excellent service and sound advice.

I look forward to enjoying regular menu offering in future.

Almost perfect! The place is cute and the menu is really fun. Cocktails were up there with some of the best I've had. The only thing is that my sick breast was med well when I asked for med rare. (Still delicious though) looking forward to coming back eventually!

Took 10 minutes to place our first drink order. Only got two of the three sides that were ordered. Octopus appetizer tasted like pure vinegar and lobster hush puppies were mushy. Pork chop was tough and dry. Poor experience and cost too high for such poor service and food.
