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

The vegan menu needs work. Ordered the grilled eggplant which was basically A few slices of eggplant on bulgur. Not tasty and not creative in any way. It was definitely not worth the money.

The fish is fresh but all prepared the same. I thought the menu just lacked creativity.

We had a app dishes for 3 For dinner. Each plate really tasty, but didn’t leave stuffed. I love being able to try multiple dishes. This was a great way to do that. A bit pricey which is not a surprise.

The finest dining experience I’ve ever had. The most unique taste and flavors I have ever experienced. Service was impeccable, my servers name was Jacob and he went out of his way to make sure any and everything my wife and I desired was at our fingertips. My wife drinks beer and they did serve her flavor at this restaurant. He even went outside across the street to another restaurant to get the beer that she loves. We had an eight course Valentines menu meal and I will never forget the dining experience, the service, the ambience that we got to experience. We even had, in our opinion, the best seat in the house for our reservation.

I requested to do something special for my wife. They were very accommodating, to everything I asked was executed perfectly by our waiter, and my wife can't stop talking about how much she enjoyed herself... I Highly recommend Kyma Buckhead, it was as amazing experience thanks.

Loved the food and ambience server was excellent. My only gripe was on a Valentine's Day pre fixe menu we got upcharged an extra 26$ for things ordered off the menu, including 10$ for the Dover sole for 2. Why? Seems 194$ should have covered it, or at least extra charges should have been disclosed. So, great food but I'm not sure it was worth over 200$.

One of the best restaurants I have ever been too. I had three appetizers. The lamb pie was spectacular! Grilled octopus was great and the fried lobster was OK. We couldn't get much of the lobster taste after it was fried. For our main course we had the Salmon and Steak entree'. The salmon as amazing. Steak was great, but just like other good steakhouses. We were there for Valentines and it was a fixed menu with a fixed price. The only part that was disappointing was when we received our bill. We got charged extra for the steak and the lobster. We paid $300 for the dinner and it was worth it. I would just appreciate if I knew that I am getting charged extra beforehand. Beside that, we had an amazing experience and enjoyed it a lot. Highly recommend it.

Food was exceptional and a great out of the box (for me) experience. We liked it very much and can't wait to go back to try more menu items. I do believe it would be better with a large group of friends than just the two of us.

Kyma was outstanding!! We were greeted as soon as we arrived. We were seated right away. Jacob was our fabulous server. He went over the specials and made the best recommendations. We decided on the Meze and whole fish tasting. We had the potato capers, red pepper-feta, eggplant, and cucumber yogurt Meze which were all delicious. Jacob recommended Shrimp "Kataifi" which was outstanding. We then decided on the lobster morels which again was a hit. Lastly we had Scallop Santorini which was perfection on a plate. Our entree was the Salt Crusted European Sea Bass "Lavraki" for Two which beautifully displayed and brought to our table to view before taken to the kitchen for deboning. Jacob also recommended the Megas Oenos, Agiorgitiko-Cab Sauv, '15 was I really enjoyed!! Jacob really made the evening with the great recommendations!!

We had a late reservation so the restaurant was not particularly busy. Upon arrival, we had a short wait before being seated. Our server was gracious from start to finish and made wonderful suggestions throughout the meal. Our group of 5 ended up choosing a tasting menu with the whole fish option- we went with a grouper, which was prepared well and delicious. However, we were all so full from the delicious mezes that we probably had less than half of the fish. We ended up being the last party to leave the restaurant at the end of the night, but the service never wavered. It was a lovely meal and I’m sure we will return on our next visit to Atlanta!

We had to pour our own wine. Could have died between appetizers and main. No clearing of plates between long waits. Sole was overcooked poorly presented meunière sauce was placed on table not ladled over fish. Lip service from waiter and manager. Chef came out to visit many tables - not ours. Been there many times in the past but never again.

We are very disturbed to hear of such a negative time that you had when you dined with us. None of what you described has anything to do with what we expect our guests to experience. These are the type of things that we hope to avoid. Our General Manger will be reaching out to you privately to gather more information and make amends.

Meal was delicious, just like previous 2 times I ate at Kyma. Waiters tried, but they forgot to bring my side dish even though I reminded them that I didn’t get it yet, so nothing accompanied my fish. One poured tap water into our glasses that had sparkling water in them already (but then he brought us more sparkling water). Our waiter than offered to bring us both dessert, but we told him to just bring one. Also, although I love raw oysters, the menu said roasted oyster with sturgeon caviar for one of the appetizers- my coworker wanted to order them in addition to the grilled octopus because she can not eat raw oysters - but when they came out, they were both still raw. They corrected the situation by bringing 2 more, properly roasted this time. Overall food was still delicious, but as it’s very expensive, felt the service was lacking - perhaps it was because it was a Monday evening?

And, once more, the food and service did not disappoint! There was 4 of us and we shared the Lobster Morsels and Octopus appetizers which were prepared perfectly and we each had an entree. Everything was perfect. The only thing was, at the end of the meal we asked to split tge check for each couple and because of the new technology it was a challenge. Or because we were using our Buckhead Life Group card and the other couple was not? I'm not sure, but it was awkward.

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
