Zach was a great waiter and the food was delicious! Made the birthday celebration memorable!
We dined at no 246 as a celebration meal for a family birthday and this was expressed on the reservation. The food was quite good. We ordered
Meatballs, which were very good but it would have been nice to have more bread which I requested but it never came...
Winter citrus salad- delicious!
Mushroom arancini- just ok
Fungi pizza- just ok
Black spaghetti- very good
Lamb bolognese- very good
Wood roasted 1/2 chicken- very good
Braised cannellini beans- amazing!!!
The chicken and the beans were definitely the stars!
We shared everything family style. All the starters came out together which was fine. The mains all hit the table at the same time right on the heels of the starters with no space between courses. After that, there were no water refills or offer for more cocktails or wine.
Following dinner, we waited patiently for dessert menus and this took some time. It would have been a good time to offer more wine or cocktails or water but the waiter was busy with other tables... He did bring us a nice round of limoncello to toast the birthday guest!
Dessert was chocolate pudding cake which was good but some ice cream would have been welcome to offset the dense chocolate. The pear Riesling sorbet was mildly flavored and underwhelming.
In summary, the food had some stars but the service was lacking. I know they were busy for the MLK holiday but I was disappointed with the service level, especially for a birthday celebration.
Terrible service. Reservation was at 7:30. Didn’t get seated until 8. Food didn’t come until 9:25pm.
Simply put, this was one of the best Italian meals we've ever had, start to finish. Excellent service, great atmosphere and amazing food. An overall fantastic experience. We will definitely be back.
Everything was amazing. Our server Zack made great recommendations and gave us an amazing experience. Definitely will be coming back very very soon.
Perfect place to dine with cool trendy friend in from LA
Service is great! Food is fantastic!!
Best pasta I've had in Atlanta. Great atmosphere. Perfect for a date night.
Truely a very good experience!
Food and service was excellent. We were craving some great Italian and this hit the spot!
One of the best Pizza 🍕 in the area. It a bit noisy but in summer the back yard is great place to sit in.
It was our first visit to no.246. The server was very kind and the dishes are SO good! We very enjoyed our meal.
Food excellent as always. Johnathan our waiter was great. Celebrated my sons 30th birthday and I felt like we got many special extras.
Service could have been better. A few issues with the bill which were resolved just not timely.
Had Zach as a waiter for the second time in a row. It was a most pleasant coincidence. His service is a cut above and the food was great!
After dining at 246 several times before, this was a disappointment. The setting was a fixed price, four course meal for New Year's Eve with family. Reservations were for 9:00 pm; we were seated nearly 40 minutes late. The appetizers/sampler provided was good to great but the rest of the courses were poor to barely adequate. The pasta and risotto were both over salted, so much so that three of our party didn't bother to finish the courses. The quail and salad were okay but not of the quality that we have come to expect from 246. One of the two desserts we tried was quite good - the tort. But the dark chocolate brownie was overly sweet and almost syrupy soft...not what any of us expected with a brownie dessert.
New Year’s Eve was great! We did have to wait at bar for our reservation but enjoyed our cocktails. The fixed price menu had plenty of options and we both enjoyed our veal marsala. I wasn’t thrilled with my cheesecake, but he ate all of his brownie! We also had to grab waitress for a coffee order...no big deal.
Good restaurant. Probably a little too expensive for what they offer.
The food was magnificent. We went for brunch and tasted some of everything. The baked ricotta is still on my mind. Great service and ambiance. Parking is a little tricky but the food is worth it.
We went to No. 246 for a friend's birthday and were a party of 8. We had appetizers that everyone enjoyed, some had wine, others had cocktails and some had both! The food and service couldn't have been better. We had such a fun time... they customized her menu with a happy birthday picture on the front - that was the perfect touch! We'll be remembering our evening for a while...
Service was very poor...we were there for 6:30 reservation and left 2 1/2 hours later. We sat for at least 15 minutes before served water and finally came for a drink order. When finished we had to ask another staff member to locate out waitress for our check...that person graciously brought it right away. For an expensive dinner for two we were very disappointed...fortunately the company made up for the disappointing dining experience with 246. Have enjoyed 246 very much in the past and was surprised to find the evening so far below expectation with an out of town guest looking for a special evening.
Great place for a nice dinner before a show at Eddie’s Attic. Great food and great atmosphere. The service was okay.
My only complaint is that they initially tried to stick us with a lame table near the hallway to the restroom when the place was still half empty and we had a reservation. I don’t think we fit the hipness profile with our two teenage sons—definitely got the look up and down by the hostess crew upon entry.... Not cool. But they did correct the situation when I complained. Shouldn’t have had to complain....
Having said this, once properly seated, we had a good experience.
Very nice place, good food but kind of pricey for the general atmosphere-i.e. metal tables, casual dress, moderate noise. The very best was our waitress. Excellent service.
Service was great. Ambiance very loud and you’re sitting right next to other guests, no privacy. Appetizers were served before drinks. Main dish took some time (30 minutes) and pizza was great. Black spaghetti not so much (pasta overcooked and hardly any flavors). We returned this dish and took baked ricotta instead which was good.
Overall very attentive service but besides that no outstanding experience unfortunately.
Pleasant atmosphere friendly staff. My wife really liked her cauliflower steak, my Margherita pizza was bland with an ok crust. We will go back and give it another try.
What I appreciate most about 246 is that it’s delicious and consistent. The staff is accommodating to both adults & families. This is a neighborhood favorite. It’s a perfect spot for Decatur.
Love this place! I was so looking forward to the chicken Marsala, my favorite! Service was pleasant but slow and when the entree arrived, it was good but definitely not the delicious meal I’ve had so many times before! Too dry! I love soaking the toast in juice and there was literally NO juice to use! Very disappointed!
My husband and I went for our first anniversary and it was the perfect way to celebrate. There was even a special anniversary menu with the cutest sheep doodle.
We will definitely be back!
The pizza was great. Our noodle dish however was drowned in oil. (Cacio e pepe) Making is basically inedible. I had a stomachs ache for two days
We went to 246 for a birthday. The food and service were great, as usual.
Excellent food with a good bottle of wine.
The food was not as good as we’ve previously experienced. The house made noodles were much too thick to be enjoyable.
Love this place!! Amazing food, drinks, and cozy vibes...perfect place to get together with friends.
Food is fresh and good, but menu is stagnant and a bit over-priced. The noise level is ridiculous. I've been there several times because it's convenient, but not the best bang for the buck.
Everything we ordered was amazing from the Bakes Ricotta to Black Spaghetti, this is a definite must try.
A fantastic place to have a great meal and a light business meeting. Food was amazing! A for sure spot to hit the next time I am in town. For business or pleasure, I am going again.
Very good place to eat. Very good wine list. Food is very authentic.
Service at the bar was incredible! CJ did a terrific job! Food was delicious! We enjoyed throughly and will definitely be back!
I have heard so many good things about this restaurant, and I finally visited. It exceeded expectations! It was such a great restaurant! I would HIGHLY recommend going. I cannot wait to go back!
