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

Had the skate fish for 2; very rich, but so tasty. We obtained MODERN GREEK COOKING and executive chef and author Pano Karatassos was nice enough to come out and sign our copy.

Unusual that we had a trout dish that was undercooked.
I think the bread should be served warm.
Still have the best Greek Salad and grilled Octopus!

It was my son't birthday. The food was fantastic, the best fish I have tasted in a long time. The wait staff excellent, and it was overall the most pleasant experience. We are still talking about it, and it will be remembered by my 23 year old son forever. My husband also loves good food (like my son) and he raved about it. I told my boss about it, and we are thinking of having our holiday party there!

Thanks for making it so SPECIAL.

We had the dinner tasting menu-- four dips with pita (house-made fresh hot pita, fantastic!); three mezes: we had the lamb pie-- not really a pie but a spiral of filo wrapped around shredded lamb, slightly spicy, scallops perfectly cooked and served atop a yellow lentil puree, pork ribs that were meltingly tender, falling of the bones; our shared entrée was trout with a spinach stuffing and a tomato sauce with capers. I highly recommend all of these dishes.

It took over an hour to get our entree. Server seemed taxed and over committed. There were also 3 refrigerator sized bouquets of flowers ( lillies and roses) the smell of which made tasting the food difficult. I cannot imagine a chef who would allow smells to overpower his or her cuisine. Normally Buckhead Life Restaurants are very good. Not so much tonight.

Absolutely delicious from start to finish. The service was flawless and welcoming. The food tasted so fresh and light, it was atypical of today's overly fancy and precious meals. Full of fresh and clean flavors, and just the right amount. See photos for watermelon salad with watermelon sorbet and feta, and a seabass with lemon butter and capers with a side of lemony kale. Topped off with a small bowl of pistachio ice cream that came with the baklava I was bringing back for a friend.

We were seated at 5:30, and the kitchen was very slow getting started. We were given an amuse bouche of bulgur in grape leaves. We split a tasty appetizer of spanakopita and then had to wait until almost 6:25 for our meals. My friend liked her salmon. I liked the zucchini fritters and the quinoa salad, although the latter was overpriced for the small portion served. Additionally, the glass of sauv Blanc appeared to be under-poured, especially given the $13 price tag. Our server was excellent. Overall, though, the cost of the meal far exceeded its value. I will continue to frequent other BLG restaurants, but I will not return to Kyma except as required by the Summer Dine program.

Absolutely the best seafood in town. The Arctic Char was full of flavor and melt in your mouth. Lavraki was reminiscent of the best branzino we had in Italy, just as good. For an appetizer we had the mousaka, an old favorite from the Greek restaurants in Chicago, but this was different. Instead of the everyday family type dish we was accustomed to, this was elevated to a whole new level. The caramelized eggplant (fabulous) topped with béchamel sauce and melted cheese was actually lighter than you would imagine and full of flavor. Interesting wine list, all Greek wines so we had to rely on the sommelier, who was very helpful. Don't skip dessert --baklava is highly recommended. If you have ever had this before you are accustomed to something thick and gooey. Not here, again it was lighter than you can imagine and paired with ice cream was lovely.

Kyma has become my new favorite among the Buckhead Life Restaurants! The Lobster Pasta was excellent, and my husband's trout was flavorful and delicious. We also sampled the assorted spreads with pita bread which was also a great choice. The Mykonos Martini did not disappoint either. Most of all, Ava, our server, was pleasant and very helpful with making suggestions. We will be back for sure!

Kyma is a fabulous restaurant in the Buckhead Dining Group. The food is authentic Greek and presented very well. What made it more special for us is speaking with Chef Pano who after learning that we enjoy beef cheeks brought us out the special for the weekend which was lamb cheeks. Lamb is one of our most favorite meat so this was a special night having this made in the traditional Greek way. Esthetics are lovely and atmosphere as well. We enjoyed the night and had a terric waiter Vios.

Always a treat! The food was delicious as always. I decided to have the lobster pasta which was unbelievable. You would think rich but just enough goodness without being heavy. Husband couldn’t resist the salmon which he always has. A definite must if you haven’t been.

Unfortunately, they were out of the first three wines selected from the wine list, they forgot an appetizer and then when notified, they didn’t offer to come or otherwise improve the experience. Instead, they sent the entrees back (including a whole Dover sole for over $50) to sit in the pan or under heat lamps again while they brought that appetizer. Common sense is for $75+ a person you redo the dishes after you mess up. Not stick food under a heat lamp and hope customers don’t notice. Waitress was non existent after the wine snaffu and the manager just wanted to upsell into different menu choices, not fix either situation. We’ve come for over 10 years and this single experience was bad enough that we will never be back. To top it off, the valet stalled out a McLaren while we were waiting to get our car and finally leave. Disaster.

For a great Greek dining experience, Kyma is the place! You can enjoy entrees or a variety of small plates. Since I watched Chef Pano beat Bobby Flay with this dish, I’ve been wanting to try the lamb pie. It was delicious, with the combined flavors of lightly crusted lamb atop Greek yogurt! And, the veal sweetbread was tasty, too. I will definitely return to try more small plates.

Wonderful unique tasty treats. My husband and I split 3 appetizers, (octopus,sweetbreads, and lamb pie). Love trying lots of different flavors. For our entree we split the Dover Sole pan sautéed served with capers and butter, absolutely delicious! Highly recommend Kyma.

Fatima is the best server I have ever encountered. Buckhead Life should find a way to have every new server-no matter the specific restaurant-spend some time observing Fatima. I told her she is a real professional. She is cheerful, helpful, knowledgeable about the menu, and always very attentive to all her tables.
