Greek
Kyma is a contemporary Greek seafood tavern like no other. The cuisine is inventive yet approachable that is true to its Mediterranean origin. Kyma is dramatic, with a dazzling display of constellations on the deep blue ceiling, white marble columns and a bold fresh fish display. The welcoming patio, with its plush furniture and white linen curtains, offers the ideal setting to savor a glass of Greek wine and Kyma’s array of appetizers. Fresh, healthful food, attentive Greek hospitality and festive atmosphere await at Kyma. Proper dress is required. “A true labor of love. Bravo.” -The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Our waitress Ava is the best I’ve ever had in all the times I’ve gone to Kyma. I’ve raced about the octopus and bring people there just for that. This time I was a bit disappointed. Portion size, presentation, texture, and flavor were all below expectation. Not sure why. Hopefully it’s not reflective of a permanent change. Otherwise I still really like Kyma

From the moment we walked into Kyma we were made to feel welcome. The low light ambiance gave a warming glow to the restaurant and the restrained hum of enjoyable conversation pervaded the atmosphere. The usual selection of meze provided a cornucopia of wonderful flavors with the lobster morsels and the mussels being stand-out performers in the cast. The service was efficient and unobtrusive and the cost extremely reasonable. We look forward to our next visit.....soon.

The Lamb pie Meze was outstanding; the beet salad was refreshing and unique; the whole fish Branzino best in class in Atlanta. Chef Pano is brilliant and we can't wait for a return outing soon!

Haven’t been to Kyma in ages and it was still really good. Should have been very good but unfortunately a couple events made it not so...we got the lobster bites and they were beautiful and golden but a couple of them were under cooked...literally cold and raw inside. We sent them back and they came back out and were delicious. The award winning lamb pie was also delicious. The other criticism was the service. Our waitress was pleasant and answered our needs but seemingly forgot to put in the order for our sides so they didn’t come out with the whole fish we ordered. It was time to go when they did come out and she removed it from the bill which was nice I suppose. Just wish these few loose ends hadn’t happened and the experience would have been excellent.

kyma was fabulous! we had the moussaka and fried lobster bits as an appetizer.
we also had the lamb pie
for dessert we ate baklava and coffee everything was authentic. I have never had such good moussaka here in the states. It was as good as you get in Greece!
This resturant is beautiful and captures the essence of Greece.
Chef Pano was in the kitchen and the food reflected his expertise.
He did beat Bobby Flay!

My only complaint was where we were seated. We were first shown a table by the kitchen , a very busy location, then we were shown a table by the restrooms, this table we took but were not happy. For a resturant that had many empty tables when we arrived this was unacceptable especially since we frequent most of these resturant’s owned by buckhead life.

I delighted in the atmosphere, food and attentive service of Kyma. Although as nighttime came, the lights didn't dim the way I like them, the energy and the plates of deliciousness - kept coming. We feasted on the 'mussels' - and the delicious pita with one of the mezze 'spread' appetizers. We shared a delicious romaine & feta salad, and didn't want for a thing. Dessert was tempting - but we passed it up. ...but rest assured, next time - we're going for it!!!!

Consistent experience in every way no matter what day or time we dine here. Food is unique and not duplicated elsewhere and the combinations of flavors are the mark of a true artist in Chef Pano. Worth the time and money it takes to enjoy the experience. This is one of those few restaurants where we always leave satisfied in not just the entire experience, but felt we received a great value for our money and that is what keeps us coming back. I have learned to appreciate Greek food on a much higher level since we began patronizing Kyma.

Kyma is whatever you want it to be! Looking for a great bar with superb pours? Kyma. Small plates? Whole fish to share? Kyma. Meat, fish, chicken, or lamb prepared perfectly? A sampling of delicious desserts- from baklava to donuts ‘n honey. This is the place. With service that matches the high quality of the food! No wonder we keep coming back. Thanks, Chef Pano; you rock!

Truly is a five star restaurant. Dinner was wonderful, service excellent (attentive but not intrusive) and the ambiance perfect. My only wish is that they carry Glenlivet. Then they'd get six stars.

I haven't dined at Kyma since 2014, so I was stunned at how good it has become. Every dish was well thought out and kind of the best version of.... The wine list is pretty adventurist, heavily dominated by Greek wines that you don't encounter elsewhere, but they do let you sample a taste before you commit and the staff really did offer a helpful guide.

We always love our time at Kyma! The food was excellent and our waiter, Niko, was very attentive. I would give it a 5.0 except for the fact that I don't care for Greek wine and that is all that's available on the wine menu.

Wonderful dinner with personable service. The octopus is by far the best in the city. Amazing dish of cod with leaks and clams. Salads were fresh and the martini perfect. Thank you for turning Monday into magic.

Always one of our favorite places in Atlanta. No dish has ever been a dud; only complaint is that often we would like more. The Greek chocolate lava cake was beyond belief. We do wish that the wait staff were a little less obsequious, but that seems to be almost everywhere these days.

We celebrated my wife's birthday for dinner. Great service - no rush and felt like we were dining. Outstanding meal in every respect. Enjoyed the octopus and lamb pie along with a salad as our starters with a bottle of wine (half priced on Sundays!). We decided to have the char fish dish for two. Done perfectly for us. We were full at the end and had to pass on the nice desert selection. Our thoughtful waiter brought a birthday desert "to go" for my wife to enjoy later. Lots of nice touches the entire evening. Thank you.
