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 waiter was awful. They put wrong food in front of each of us and then had to pick it up and move to correct person. The waiter treated us as if we had done something to make him mad. 2 of the 4 of us had to send back because under cooked. Other 2 were finished eating before food came back. No apology, no offer for dessert, no anything. Will not be going back to kyma.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal as well as the service at Kyma. The only annoying thing was two gentlemen seated at the bar talking loudly and dropping F-BOMBS every other sentence.

went to kyma's for a belated fathers day dinner. as always, hubby was very happy since he loves the menu. we wouldn't tell him where we were going. my son, his first visit and not a fish eater and i both had the lamb chops, very good. my daughter had the arctic char, which is very much like a salmon which is right up her alley was delicious. the appetizers spreads are always a crowd pleaser and being a greek, spanakopita is always a memory. must have the grilled octopus . even my son, the non fish lover enjoyed the dish. hubby loved the cinnamon ice cream on his molten dessert, my son the white chocolate brownie special and ahh, those donuts to share ! thanks for a great family dinner...

We usually enjoy this restaurant but did not like the Sunday menu for Father's Day. Most entrees were by the pound rather than per item. It was very limited compared to the usual menu. We will probably not go back on a Sunday.

Overall the restaurant interior was very inviting and charming. The staff were quite attentive, and there was a good attention to detail in the presentation of the food. We started with the variety of spreads on pita - spreads were good, the pita was excellent. They offered a deep fried version of calamari which was tender and tasty, and the eggplant appetizer was wonderful. Surprisingly the main fish course was our least favorite. Cooked just a bit too long and not as moist as expected. But overall, a very solid dinner.

We had a lovely time. I wouldn't change a thing. I loved that they seated my husband and me in a romantic booth for our date night that we listed as our occasion on the open table reservation. It was nice that they remembered and noted that. The ambiance is very nice and reminds one of being in a blue and white seaside Santorini restaurant or on a cruise ship. The white wine that my server recommended was excellent. She helped us with the menu and made suggestions which we greatly appreciated. The fish we ordered was excellent. We both liked our selections. Our server was patient and helpful and very attentive, we both thought she was very good. The portions are small but delicious and appropriate. We had a beautiful evening, I loved everything about being there and look forward to coming back again.

Absolutely magnificent dinner of Greek gourmet specialties as hors d'oeuvres and the perfect Arctic Char as the main course, followed by delicious Greek cookies. Greek wines were superb. A fabulous dinner and elegant evening with incomparable service. Susan Tucker

The lighting at the table at which we were seated was very dim except for one corner on one side of the table for 4. This made reading the small print menu very difficult for the people seated in the dark parts of the table. The lighting could definitely be turned up (added to) without seriously affecting the ambiance.

All great except seeing the lobsters having to lie on the bitter cold ice.
According to Reuters, on Friday, Italy’s highest court ruled that lobsters should not be kept on ice while awaiting their turn on someone’s dinner plate. The case stemmed from a complaint by an animal rights group against a restaurant near Florence that it said inhumanely stored its live lobsters this way. The court agreed that this method caused unnecessary suffering. “While the particular method of cooking can be considered legal by recognizing that it is commonly used, the suffering caused by detaining the animals while they wait to be cooked cannot be justified in that way,” the judges reportedly wrote. The restaurant owner was ordered to pay a 2,000 euro fine as well as 3,000 euros in legal fees.

Found Kyma on Open Table for a late evening dinner. The food was a solid, modern take on Greek food. We tried the tasting menu for two. They Spicy Lamb Pie and Spanakopita mezze were excellent. We choose the turbot for our main course, which was flaky and perfectly seasoned. Our waitress was a combination of attentive (during the beginning of the meal) to non-existent (towards the end as the restaurant closed.) The wine list was excellent and the time between servings was spot on.

Couple of caveats. I'd put this on the $$ to $$ cost range. (Believe it's mislabelled on Yelp and Open Table.) Valet parking is available in front, but they will let you park towards the backside of the building for free if you want or miss the entrance like we did. Dressier than we were used to coming from the SF Bay Area. The interior rocked a 1980s chic without feeling dated, including a waterfall and ice display behind the hostess stand with live lobster and octopus. (Not my favorite way to start a meal.)

Overall, a positive experience, but I'd save it for those days when I have something to celebrate or I'm trying to impress someone with an old-school flair.
