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

We love going to Kyma as it reminds us our life in Athens.
In the last two visits we were disappointed :
12/24 lavraki prepared with salt was overcooked and therefore dry
1/18 we tried lavraki grilled it was overcooked and it tasted to carbon and they had not put olive oil. Empty tables around us were not cleaned after the customers left giving a poor image not in line with what you expect of this restaurant.
On both occasions we had to ask for the bread. On the 18 no olive oil was brought for the bread.
I hope this observations are helpful to keep the standards of the restaunt

The space is beautiful. Made me think of Santorini. Our server was knowledgeable and so attentive. The food was absolutely delicious. We went with the Tasting Dinner with Whole Fish and it was amazing.

I can’t wait to come back to try more items on the menu!

Finest Greek cuisine in Atlanta, with modern elegance and outstanding service. While expensive, it is a good value for the quality. Our server was very helpful in recommended the quantity of mezes needed for our party of 6, and in choosing accompanying wines. Nearly all my guests had the fresh fish dishes. All agreed that mezes, main courses, and sides were very much to their liking. No room for dessert!

Svc/Bar/Ambiance were fabulous. Although very tasty, portion sizes are tiny. The value isn’t there if you are hungry. Otherwise great place for drinks & appetizers.

The menu offered on NYE was a standard 4-course menu for $95 a person. It is the EXACT same selection available on their normal menu for $49 per person. Granted this included a split salad and a “sampling of deserts” but didn’t include the spread sampling. So I really don’t think the split salad was worth an additional $45 per person. Somebody there is not good at math.

The service and the food were great. I had a tomato and cucumber salad to start and if you told me that they just picked it out of the garden I'd believe it. The restaurant was quiet and well-appointed. I had lamb and my wife had salmon both were excellent. The only thing I would note is the Greek food is often rather inexpensive. Kyma was not inexpensive. It was very good and that was not meant as a complaint.

I was really excited to eat here again but the experience was not worth it
The food was bland and not worth the high price tag
Each of the four of us had to have some changes to make it less bland
The service was the saving grace Rubin was fantastic
Though management was less receptive
It seems the entire Buckhead group has gone down hill since the hands on approach of its founder Pano has faded

So many other better choices

Spent $700 on dinner for 6 and feel like I got a bargain. The entire experience was fantastic. We left Atlanta 7 years ago so this was our first visit in a long time. Just as good as we remembered. Best restaurant in Atlanta for my money.

Holiday dinner for office and Kyma is a beautiful restaurant. Everone commented on the decor and ambiance. Our waiter seemed a bit rushed even though the restaurant was not very busy when we arrived. Drinks were great and the appetizers were tasty, although the spreads were not different enough for me to be excited about one over the other. We had a lamb puff pastry appetizer that was delicious! Maybe our entree choices weren't the best but I was a little disappointed .... lamb shank was not appetising to look at but was flavorful, crab pasta was light and tasty but the portion seemed modest, chicken was moist and tender and my friend seemed to really enjoy the dish.

CulinaryClubCountess, thank you for taking the time to leave such a detailed review. We are happy to hear you chose our restaurant for your holiday office dinner. We apologize that the service seemed rush but are happy to hear you enjoyed the drinks and appetizers. The spicy lamb pie is a signature dish of us that Chef Pano beat Bobby Flay with! We hope to have you and your group back very soon.

OMG!! The food is simply divine. Service is so over the top fantastic. This is a must do over and over again. I had the pleasure of their much talked about Octopus. This was a first for this "exotic" eater, and it was love at first bite. It only got better with my entrée - deep fried Barbounia (sp??) on a bed of Quinoa. We shared a series of desserts which were all amazing.

We really liked the décor! That was top notch. However, I was disappointed right away that they did not have beefeater's gin for my favorite martini. I had an appetizer of calamari that was just soaked in lemon juice instead of just added to it for perfection! At any rate, it was overpowering and I like lemon juice...just not that much!! Also, since it was my birthday we splurged for dessert. Then, the waitress brought out another complimentary dessert for my birthday....instead of offering it as a surprise at the end of the meal...which would have been nicer and save the price of the other dessert! Overall, I was rather disappointed with the experience.
