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

Braised octopus, beet salad and dirty Greek martinis are my must haves at Kyma. Gwat service from Natalie!

Kyla is classy without being ostentatious. It is not inexpensive and it is worth the price. The staff is friendly and efficient the service impeccable and the food is wonderful especially for those of us who are confined to fish and veg meals.

Patrick was phenomenal. Everyone should request him as a server. His confidence and complete mastery of the menu was so refreshing and ensured that we had an unforgettable dining experience. Every recommendation he offered was the best, most delicious dish we had ever had, and he knew the back story of when it was added to the menu, how it is prepared, and exactly where in the world it came from. He is amazing and passionate about what he does at Kyma. He is dedicated to making your dining experience exceptional!

Chef Jonah and the Kyma team are sure to give you a top notch Greek dining experience.

Put the burden of mezze choices on your waiter and be sure to try the lamb pie.

The Greek wine selection is overwhelming, but the staff will make sure to get you something you will like!

Don’t skip dessert.

My wife and I were traveling through Atlanta and we very excited to dine here. Upon arrival, a Monday night early reservation, the parking lot was empty and we were informed that valet was mandatory - ok. The valet guy was very pleasant but our car was literally valeted and left near the front entrance.
The restaurant never really got full, but as our meal progressed our waiter (who we still tipped 20%) was side tracked by a larger party and we became neglected and our drinks were empty on the table when our entree was served. Of particular note was an appetizer item, a mushroom dish that came with a carafe of sherry sauce. The expediter and the waited gave us conflicting information on how to eat it. In the past when we have eaten such a dish, the sauce is poured over the dish by the server. Our server did not do this and when we questioned our waiter he told us that people don't use too much of it they find it better (it wasn't). A third person, the first expediter apologized and told us it should have been poured over the entire dish as a soup. However, a soup was not provided. We were really looking forward to the signature octopus dish and it was just ok. I had the lemon chicken - literally no taste of lemon and my wife had the clam pasta - nothing to write home about. The giant white beans were not really in a stew and it seemed as though it was just tomato sauce - minimal onions, dill. We've been to Greece and love Greek food. Had we not been traveling through, we would have complained but instead left without dessert and coffee. We had two drinks each, not even a bottle of wine and our bill was still $200. We left very disappointed.

Our drinks were super late, the sides we ordered were wrong and the right ones were brought to us after we finished. The waiter confused us with the explanation for the menu, we were dining with friends who had never been to Kyma before. My husbands drink was nothing like what he ordered...

The food here is so good and the last time we visited (about a month ago) our experience was superb..,not sure what was happening this weekend

Hello there. I am Ramien, the G.M. of Kyma and I want to sincerely apologize for the circus of confusion that you described from your last visit with us. You mentioned having a superb experience with us before and that is precisely what we work so hard to accomplish for all of our guests every night. I would love an opportunity to make this bad experience up to you if you would be so kind to reach out to me with some more details. My email is rbalouch@buckheadrestaurants All the best!

Fish was amazing. Simply grilled and deboned for you, with a rad too much olive oil and lots of delicious capers and parsley. The zucchini fritters were the lightest I’ve ever eaten. Nice ambience. Wine list is mostly Greek and the two whites we tried were drinkable.

I brought my dear friend who was visiting from Miami to Kyma for dinner. From the first cocktail to dessert everything was perfectly delicious. We started with spanakopita and zucchini fritters. They were delicious! I thoroughly enjoyed the lamb chops and my friend had the snapper. Both were wonderful choices. We enjoyed a glass of Greek Cabernet Sauvignon. For dessert we shared the baklava with pistachio ice cream. The service was attentive and not intrusive. One of my favorite Atlanta restaurants. Buckhead Life Restaurants never disappoint!!

The food was very good; we chose the mezze and tried a lot of different foods. The were hits and misses, but mostly hits. I was disappointed that they did not offer a non alcoholic beer. Service was excellent and attentive, but it sometimes it seemed we were a little rushed. They brought out too many of the dishes too close together.

The wines are all Greek without a description. We had a hard time finding a full bodied red we liked. They did bring us some tastes but it took over 30 minutes to choose a wine. I would have liked descriptions and some California wines to be on the menu. The food was tasty. We had Bronzini which was prepared nicely. The stuff grape leaves were delicious. Overall good food. Bar tender was very friendly. Limited beers on menu and no tap.
