Walked in and was not greeted. The maitre of honor greeted a couple in front of me but never acknowledged me while I waited on my date. There was no seating available at the bar so I stood at the front for 15 minutes and still no one came to greet me. I made reservations for 8 pm Saturday night. Did not feel welcoming so I left and contacted my date to advise him to meet me at Chauma Gaucha. Glad I did. I am use to that kind of ambience and service.

Worst dining experience I’ve had at a restaurant in this price range in the city of Atlanta.

I do not care to elaborate further but everyone in the dining room on Valentines Day felt the same.

We dined on Valentine's Day. The set menu selection was okay but the food arrived cold and had to be sent back. In addition, our server had no personality and was hard to find. We were very disappointed in the experience.

I stopped by to purchase a gift card for a friend. I've drove by McKinnon's many of times but never stopped to eat. I am so happy I did. I stayed for dinner and drinks. Such a hidden gem and the owner, Aziz, truly wonderful! The food and service was spectacular.

Not one to leave reviews often, but neither of us could eat our food. The owners were very nice, but the food was mushy and under seasoned.

Not a good sign when the wait staff tell you they are on a skeleton crew and there is no hostess to greet you.

However, McKinnons has been around forever and it is a great spot for authentic Cajun cooking. We loved the mussels appetizer and the bouillabaisse I had was lovely. If you are in the mood for a taste of New Orleans, be sure to stop by. Prices are in line with the neighborhood - about 20-25$ a person + any alcohol.

Should have known when it was the only restaurant we could in on Saturday night. Thought we would give it a try since reviews said it was authentic creole, not true. Food was mediocre. Waitress didn't know how to explain two dishes. Stuck in time.

Had a party of 11 for a birthday. They put us in our own room and our waiter was wonderful. He had a great sense of humor and added to the festive nature of the dinner. The owner came by to greet us which was a nice touch and definitely impressed the guests. We’ll definitely be back as we love the feel of this classic restaurant.

McKinnons is an old-school restaurant with great food and wonderful service. The dining room is lovely, dimly lit, and quiet. Great for a romantic evening or special occasion with friends (which is why we were there). If you are looking for a trendy, flashy scene, with long descriptions of locally sourced ingredients, this is not for you. If you want consistent, delicious food, with great attention-to-detail service then this is your place! The piano player in the bar area has worked there for 32 year and knows every song requested. Aziz, the owner, will make you feel part of the family.

During a Show that was in progress in the Grille Room, an audio problem developed. A friendly patron offered his services,corrected the problem and the Show went on much to the delight of everyone in the Grille Room and adjacent Piano Bar. This is definitely a special place as are the staff & management.

Although the service the subpar, the food was not great. I asked for a well done steak and it came out being super raw. Nasty!! They took it and cooked the same steak and put it back on my plate. Do not eat at this place!!

Great romantic date restaurant in the formal dining room. Candle lit , quiet and cozy- it was a very romantic scene. The wait staff was very attentive and professional. The food was excellent . Must try the crawfish tip appetizer. You may want to order an additional side to share because the sides with the entrees are more decorative than filling. It was overall a very nice date night while visiting Atlanta and I would go back again.

Our family goes here every Christmas Eve. This year was harder because of newly discovered food allergies. They tried their best, but some things were missed and certain members of our party were not happy with this. We have a year to reevaluate whether to find a new tradition. We have been going here for years and always loved it.
