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

Exceptionally high end Greek cuisine that is as close to being in Greece as it comes. The experience and quality has not diminished since Kyma has opened; my wife and I have never been disappointed. Our family and friends from Greece have been amazed at the authenticity of the food in its preparation, taste and presentation.
They cannot believe that they would find Greek food of such high standard in the USA.

The food and ambiance at the restaurant was very good. The service was excellent. It is a nice restaurant for a date or for celebrating an anniversary. The fish is all imported from different places such as Greece, Iceland, Maine, and other places.

This was my second visit to Kyma. Wait service was excellent. Noted that I had to self park after sitting at the valet station for a few minutes with no one coming out. That being said, on both of my visits I was disappointed with the food. I participate in the Buckhead Restaurant Summer dinning program. We were so disappointed in our food at Kyma the first year that we switched our cards last year to one of the other restaurants. We were told this year that switching was no longer allowed. Because we enjoy the program and all of the other restaurants we came back to Kyma and was disappointed with the food once again. I don't mind paying for great food but I feel like I was cheated for the price I paid for food that was just ok.

This is my favorite place to go for the food. It was my birthday and we had a great time! However, there was something odd about the service that evening. We were greeted at our table by three different people. A woman who had greeted us disappeared right after. We also saw management apologizing to other tables for their wait. At one point four tables around us left. I work at a restaurant and am very much aware that it is a job like any other, only with harder and longer hours than most. But I just wasn’t expecting this from a place with such high quality food.

Great service and food. The service by everyone from the bar, host, wait staff, etc. was on spot. The only thing we wished were handled differently was that we were informed that we had the option to place a half order of the donuts for dessert. We forced ourselves to eat almost everyone (who can leave little fried balls of dough behind). It would have been nice to have known that prior to ordering a full order.

The octopus was the most tender I’ve ever had and the skate wing with the lentils was so good I could leave Cj the plate. The only reason I rate the food 4 stars is that the prawns were over cooked. Our waiter was just ok - he didn’t seem to be that familiar with the wine and he wasn’t that enthusiastic in his recommendations about the food.

I've been here before but my friend hadn't - and he was pleasantly surprised at the extensive menu. We ordered lamb chops and the halibut and shared them and they were both delicious.
Our server - Logan - was an absolute delight. Everything she suggested was wonderful and so was she!

Great food and outstanding service. Whole article char was absolutely delicious and was cooked perfectly. Octopus appetizer is the best in Atlanta. Lamb pie was yummy, but it had a bit too much yogurt under it. Horiatiki salad when solid as always. Loukomades are great to share.

Thanks to Buckhead Dine Around - I got an amazing opportunity to enjoy the food at Kyma. My guest and I were most impressed with the atmosphere, the customer service AND the food. The bean soup although a bit salty, was delicious. The romaine feta salad = scrumptious. The food is delivered by what appears to be one of the cooks (chefs perhaps). Nice touch, and great opportunity to give that (chef or cook) person feedback - if you would prefer a personalized touch or adjustment to your dish. (I noticed the responsiveness of the person delivering to another table.). This place is an absolute must try!

Their fish is too expensive.. now selling fish by the pound. Was told that a certain fillet came in only a. 1and 3/4 lb and 2lb size at $40 dollars a pound. Other restaurants in Buckhead sell smaller sizes for far less. Fish was not as good as I have had previously there. Will not go back for awhile.

While I enjoyed the food and the server was helpful in selecting a wine the service felt rushed at times. We ordered an appetizer and salad. The salad, which contained sorbet, was served while we were enjoying the appetizer thus the sorbet melted before we finished the appetizer.

We chose two mediterranean tasting menus for my birthday. For mezze we got lobster morsels, grilled octopus, tuna tartar and mussels w/o shells. The octopus was the best ever. The Lobster & tuna were also first class. We got tow whole small sea bass from the Greek isles and they were wonderful, The chef also threw in a few mezze for free. Not cheap but you definitely get your money's worth.
