At Livingston Restaurant + Bar, located inside The Georgian Terrace Hotel, guests can immerse themselves in more than 100 years of history while catapulting their appetite into the future. Inspired by the 111-year-old building’s towering ceilings, marble staircases and namesake terrace overlooking one of the most historic corners on Peachtree Street, Chef Steven Meese’s Southern-inspired menu is a brilliant combination of beloved American traditions, locally sourced ingredients and modern execution. Named for Livingston Mims, one of Atlanta’s most gregarious hosts and the city’s 37th mayor, the restaurant’s classic architecture and seasonal haute cuisine play host to a wide variety of guests, from visitors to business professionals in search of lunch or a late bite and theatre-goers attending a performance at the equally historic Fox Theatre across the street. The restaurant is ideal for private parties, email info@thegeorgianterrace.com to start planning your event.

    Third time going before a Fox theater show. Each time there has been something… today: - we had reservations but still had to sit in the bar area - 2 of us ordered the smoked salmon bagel. 15 to 20 minutes later they came back and told us they were out of salmon. - We arrived 1.5 hours before the show and we’re rushed as the food finally came 45 minutes before the show started. While staff is nice, and you can’t beat the proximity to the Fox, it isn’t worth it.

    Each of the group of 6 six had researched the brunch menu that was listed on the Website. We were disappointed that a brunch menu was no longer available The staff was unaware of a brunch menu being on the website. Also, the kitchen ran out of salmon which was the preferred breakfast for one of us. The service was great and the food we ordered was good, but I would not say is was anything above the ordinary.

    This used to be our go to place for our Fox season tickets - which we’ve had for more than 20 years! Unfortunately we were quite disappointed. Menu was limited. The food was basic. The bill was incorrect. I miss the old Livingstons!

    Waited over an hour for our food and only got it by talking to the manager who was chatting to a customer at an adjoining table. One meal of four was comped and server deleted compulsory 20% tip. Water glasses were not refilled and neither was coffee. We won’t return.

    Brunch with Santa event was canceled but we were never notified. We showed up and had to order off a menu, no buffet as advertised. Service was painfully slow and I had two under 5 years old with me, who were hungry. I had to physically get up and track down our server 5 or 6 times to get service. The event was advertised to include parking, which wasn’t true. I ended paying $30 for valet parking. The server helped himself to a 25% gratuity without asking me. I would not have given him that as I had to keep getting out of my seat to go find him. We won’t dine here again. That is an understatement.

    We made a reservation on Open Table and we were seated immediately. At that point the restaurant had maybe 4 tables seated. Clearly, the restaurant was understaffed. We had to wait far too long for our drinks. One diner with us didn’t get her Bloody Mary until the food came. Apparently, the bartender wasn’t there yet. I really wish I could’ve rated our experience higher. I put a $95 deposit down (hold) for this reservation. I know this is in the event we were a no-show. Still excessive, I think. I also do not like when 20% gratuities are automatically added. It reflects in the level of service. We never give less than 20% in tips but would like to feel as though the staff was working for it.

    We made reservations for 4 and were incredibly disappointed. It was for breakfast. I rarely leave any kind of negative review but I have to to keep others from going! The service was awful. My husband eat out (at nice places about 3-5 times per week) so service is so important! The restaurant was packed and there were only 2 servers! That’s CRAZY! They should Not be taking so many reservations. We barely made it to the Fox on time for our show, we had to ask 5 times for everything (drink refills, cream for Coffee, a fork, the check. We were so stressed by the time we paid and ran out. Don’t bother!

    The Thanksgiving dinner was a horrible experience. The food was old and cold, the dessert table was picked over and empty. The reservations were made because Open Table stated this was to be an experience to remember... boy, was it! $300.00 for poor quality buffet food and a cheap bottle of wine. The only highlight was the kind server who was ready to end her day.

    Thanksgiving dinner was the worst ever for such a high-end Venu. I brought my family there thinking we were going to enjoy the same excellent service and food that we enjoyed before Covid. I was embarrassed and disappointed at what I saw and experienced. If this is how the service and food is going to be Shame on Livingston! The ham and turkey looks like it can from cans. The different stations were not keep cleaned, and maybe two bowls of salad. The holiday decorations were cheap and placed very poorly. I was totally horrified.

    Staff was very friendly. Food was traditional Thanksgiving fare and tasted excellent. The live band was a nice touch but, unfortunately, wrapped up before dinner ended. Downside was that it was a bit pricey for one meal.

    Location, location, location This is right across the street from the Fox theater. It makes having a fight and catch up with friends before the theater easy. They are short staffed so a reservation is a must. Plan time to be patient as all the staff is very nice but they’re a bit short staffed. We had the breakfast sandwich and lox and bagel and they were good. Our coffee and tea were prompt and hot.

    Don’t confuse the current Livingston Restaurant an Bar at the Georgian Terrace Hotel with the Livingston Restaurant of old, which has inexplicably not reopened after the pandemic. It is surprising that a major hotel does not have a quality restaurant. The current Restaurant and Bar is really only a bar with a few tables. No reservations are taken. On the night of October 11, 2022, only one server covered all of the tables, the only food available was hamburgers and cheese plates. Wait times for service of food and beverages was excessive.

    We walked in and they were not prepared for our reservation. Took 10 mins to sit they tried to shut and lock doors so others would not come into restaurant. Took 45 minutes to get a beverage. Many tables had not been cleaned. They were very understaffed. Waiter was nice and friendly though, but just overwhelmed

    Environment was nice, but the air conditioner was on high. It was extremely cold for everyone, which also made the food, coffee and tea get cold quickly as well. Multiple people asked for the air to be slightly adjusted, but were told it couldn't be. The food could have been replenished a little faster as well. Besides those things, the brunch was nice. Valet was affordable and friendly as well.

    Do not go to this restaurant. We went there for Mother's Day brunch since this is the only one I was able to find a week before mothers day but now I know why! The food selection was terrible. The food quality was terrible. There were very very short staff and nobody came to take beverage order or nothing! We paid $760 for six of us. Even if it was half price, I would NEVER go back.

    Although Jim was nice (he was the manager). Our server was horrible and absent. The food wasn’t set up upon our arrival and they kept running out even though the 11am was the first of 2-3 other time slots. The music started late and you couldn’t hear it. The room was freezing cold causing the food to be cold.

    Food was good, server was nonexistent, he only took our food order without saying hello or anything and then gave us our check. No coffee refills or questions about the food or anything. Would have been better to have been a walk up counter to order food. If the service was better I would have gave 5 stars cus the food was excellent.

    The Livingston should be a fantastic experience but they have changed things up to capitalize off the Fox Theatre crowd and that is unfortunate. Whether you are there before a show or not you should expect excellent food and service. We were there pre-show. Two hours before the show. They already were in "show" mode with a Pre-Fix menu. The fried chicken dish I ordered was bland but the trout dish my date ordered was OK. I don't understand why they couldn't offer both a normal menu and a "show" menu for those wanting the quick turn around on food. Add to that the insult that parking is also in "show" mode ($30) and there is no validated parking by the restaurant on show nights and you get the picture - capitalism at its best - If the food would have been great then maybe I'd return. I've eaten there many times and always been pleased but with this change I'd be cautious about eating there again when an event is happening at the Fox. Not worth the cost.

    I was very excited to try this restaurant, because I had never been there. My friends and I were going to a show, and I made reservations based on the menu I saw when I booked. The ambiance was perfect, and our server did a great job. The issue I had was there was a set menu, of which, I didn’t know that’s how it would be. It was $45 per person, and there were only 4 entree selections. I didn’t like any of the selections so I settled for a ribeye, which I would never order! My suggestion, for the future, is to provide more than 4 choices on a menu that costs $45 per person.

    The food always good and service is always excellent. The value can’t be beaten and the location is perfect for a pre-show dinner. I will say that the dessert menu is definitely not the restaurants focus but the entree’s are always killer.

    I was disappointed that the menu was limited to the pre-theater selections instead of the full menu available online. While what we had was good, it was not what we hoped for based upon what was on the website. It might be a good customer service if there was a calendar or some other notice on the website when this was going to happen. It is not a normal inclination to check and see if there is a show at the theater across the street when making a dinner reservation. While I might recommend the Livingston to a friend, I would not do so on a theater evening.

    Wonderful place to eat before or after a show at The Fox. The staff, chef and menu were mindful of showtimes. The chef created a wonderful and creative menu for preshow. The waiters kept track of the timing during our 3 course meal. Excellent fine dining experience. Note: parking at the Georgian was $40. No validating anymore for dining at the Livingston.
