It is perhaps of the best restaurants in Atlanta. The ambience and music is vibrant but has a lounge feel at the same time

Incredible meal. The fish is probably the best in Atlanta, but you are missing out if you don't sample the mezze as well. Definitely top 5 favorite in Atlanta.

We have been here twice in the past week! It is just wonderful. The chef is creative and the food delicious. The Baklava is the best I have had in the USA. Service was great and friendly. There is always a crowd but it is never noisy.

This was a birthday meal with two people. We tried the tasting menu. The spreads with warm pita were a great way to start the meal. You then get to choose four mezes. The dolmades were the best that I have ever tasted. Their flavor was fresh and rich. Next, we had the roasted oysters. They were actually our least favorite part of the meal but they were still delicious. Hands down, our favorite dish was the lamb pie. It was amazing! Our last meze was the cheese and mushroom dish. It was good but extremely rich. We chose the sea bream as our entree. The fish was perfectly cooked and delicious. If you try the tasting menu, my advice is to skip lunch, because you will be full.

First, it is a nice-looking place--not formal but no place for sloppy casual clothes. The food was great, as well as the service. We loved their encouragement to share half-size portions of their appetizer menu. We got to try an assortment of tasty offerings.

Our experience was phenomenal! We enjoyed grilled octupus, scallops with butternut squash, Tuna tartare with quinoa, Artic char, lamb chops and so much more! Clearly the best meal we have ever had, Taylor Young treated us so amazing we can not wait to return. We clearly will recommend Kyma to everyone who is in Atlanta! A must visit! Thank you to our fabulous server who was fabulous as well!

Exceptional Service delivering great food!
From sides/appetizers of Giant Beans or brussel sprouts to diver sole, everything was perfection and had great flavor.
Even though my husband was disappointed he couldn't get lobster for dinner, we all appreciated that the reason was the lobster that arrived was not up to the standards that the chef requires so it was unavailable.
This is a perfect example of knowing every meal here will be quality food fixed just right.

This was a sensational meal from start to finish, highlighted by friendly and efficient service and perfectly executed dishes.
We opted for the meal that included four tasty dips eaten with pita bread, four appetizers and then a whole grilled fish served with sauteed kale and capers.
I especially loved the osetra-topped oysters and the legendary octopus, and the whole fish was simply divine and ultra-fresh.
Our server had enthusiasm for her job and went out of her way to make the dinner special, bringing my date three wines to sample, as the impressive wine list is almost entirely Greek.
Water glasses stayed full thanks to vigilant service assistants, and the general manager visited our table to ensure everything was perfect.
And it was.

My wife and are foodies and have visited most restaurants in the city. Decided to do something different for her birthday.

The waitress was exceptional - polished and attentive with a great grasp of the menu. She recommended specific dishes and Greek beer and wine to compliment our entry. The spreads (which we had all four), three different appetizers and skate was delicious!

Kyma is presented as a Greek seafood tavern and the menu contains a comprehensive selection of grilled whole fish and other seafood dishes along with a few beef, lamb and chicken entrees. However, my wife and I enjoy their selection of small plates (Meze) even more. There are dozens of selections which change from visit to visit. Last night we enjoyed spicy lamb pie, small scallops in a delicious squash puree, spanokopita and a wonderful beet salad with goat cheese, dried currants and raspberry sorbet. Add to that the Sunday discount on Greek wine and you have the makings of a very nice evening at reasonable cost. Thanks, Kyma, we will be back!

First time and all I can say is wow! I’m not a foodie but appreciate a great meal. The food, drinks and service was was fantastic. My wife and I got the mezze platter that came with 4 spreads to start, 4 apps and a whole grilled fish. Everything was outstanding, we had a beet salad and octopus as 2 of our appetizers, dang! I would recommend kyma to anyone!

I would of given a higher rating but the door hostess was not the best. The reason I state that is because I asked to sit at a different table her reply is she is holding it for another party.
At the end of the day the table was never sat and for that alone I just left a bad taste in my mouth..

I selected Kyma because I had heard good things about the Octopus. It was amazing! Very tender and great flavor. The fish entree that I had was also very good as we're the braised kale and brussel sprouts. We will definitely be back.

Not at the top of their game this time. Most of two of the three courses served at the same time. One dish was forgotten about and was served just before Course 3. Not their best day but this is highly unusual.
