This was by far one of the best meals in a very long time. The textures and flavors were interesting at every level. We sat in the Octopus Bar so we could experience the flavors of many small plates and we had about 6. Every one of them were outstanding. The bartender, Claire,, was warm, friendly, hard working and informative. We give her a five rating. She worked the entire bar, small plates and outdoor seating like a master. Thank you for a perfect meal and experience!

Kyma has gone downhill. The fish was excellent, but nothing else was. The eggplant spread was too vinegary, the eggplant stew too salty and the kale too lemony. Way overpriced! $5 for a few slices of toasted pita! Server disappeared after he told us specials and we had to ask another server to find him! We were 3 couples, and he said he would give us the bill for what each couple ate, but then he tagged the wine and shared dishes on one single bill, so that couple paid way too much. He was friendly and knowledgeable, but I would rate the service poor. We will not return soon!

Honestly, ours was one of the best dinners I’ve had in Atlanta in a long time... and I eat out regularly and well. From the three starters; scallops and fois gras, grilled octopus, and lobster bites to the DIVINE lamp chops and the terrific desserts... We were delighted with every bite.
Olivia was our most knowledgeable and excellent guide, helping choose a wonderful wine.
We had no missteps, not one.
Go now and regularly!

We like to dine at Kyma on Sunday night: they have an interesting Greek wine selection and half-priced wine bottles on Sunday make these wines much more affordable. We tried a dry red wine blend from Crete and it was really good. Our traditional octopus appetizer was as always wonderful, and scallops with foie gras dish was amazing. Unfortunately they ran out of Kataifi cheese dish, we took Saganaki instead and it was a total disappointment: chewy cheese, floating in a huge amount of fat (butter, I guess), very little taste. For entry we had a whole fish grilled, special for the night Queen Snapper and it was delicious. Special dessert with filo dough, peaches, custard and ice-cream was our grand finale. We love Kyma and we will be back. Thank you.

I’ve been doing the Buckhead Life Summer dine-around for a few years, with Kyma being on the list. At first I thought dining here was so-so, but now I am a real fan. The service is great and the food challenges me out of my norm with excellent Greek menu items. I recommend trying Kyma if you haven’t dined there before!

Kyma is an exceptional reataurant for high quality Greek seafood. While some of the dishes were outstanding (the octopus, mussels, tomato salad and the whole fish), others were not up to par (particulalry the calamari pasta...flavors didnt blend well and calamari was tough). This may just be a matter of personal taste. All was presented well and the service was excellent. The restaurant is very loud which makes conversation difficult. Overall a great food experience in an energetic space. I would not recommend it for a romantic night out, but great for a fun, foodie evening.

Our server Chandler was attentive but not overly so -- just right for old friends who hadn't seen each other in a while and wanted time to talk. My friend loved the Morpheus cocktail. I loved the Dirty Greek Martini; the feta-stuffed olives were different and perfect for this Greek-spiced drink. My husband really enjoyed the sole, while my friend and I ate several mezes and sides for dinner. Our whole party thought the the Cretan Saganaki, Zucchini Fritters, Lobster Morsels, and Tuscan Kale (served as a side with the sole) were outstanding. We also loved the Blueberry Galaktobureko, as should anyone who likes blueberries, creme brûlée, and cobbler. The grilled octopus was a disappointment though the serving was generous and seasoning good. The octopus wasn't tough but it wasn't tender, and was maybe over-cooked. But otherwise we had a very nice evening.

While the food was very good and tasty I have to give the experience a 3 star rating. Though having made the reservation well in time and having confirmed it on the day itself, we were placed in the bar area instead of the dining room. It took away from the experience of eating in a restaurant. The bar tender had to serve us while serving people at the bar too. So, we did not see him often. Only got water once. One of us did not have silverware and had to take it from another table. Plates were left on the table or taken after we got the next course. By the end of the meal when it was desert time and time to pay we got three different waiters. Again, the food was good but dissapointed by this service experience.

Service was excellent. 2nd time at Kyma. Enjoyed it both times. I had the skate (pan fried) which was wonderful. My date had a light fish that we could not pronounce but started with a Ts... She raved about it. (That seldom happens except for the crabcakes at Buckhead Diner) Also, even though almost all the tables were filled it was very quiet. I highly recommend.

Ambience was nice and very appropriate for a romantic date. Extensive menu but unfortunately my lemon food allergy made it impossible to eat probably 80% of what was in the menu. Kitchen tried to accommodate where they could. Grilled octopus was phenomenal!! I’d go back if only for this dish.

Service was slower than we’d have liked. You better ask waiter/waitress for everything you need because visits to the table were not that often. Person delivering food appeared unfriendly each time he dropped off something. Side dishes weren’t consistent- two friends had the same side that was delivered at different times. There was a noticeable visual and taste difference- one was overly pepppered. It’s was a darker color- likely a result of the extra black pepper.
