So tonight my parents are meeting my boyfriend for the first time. I’m pretty nervous, but the vibe of the restaurant eases my nerves. It’s so cool and everyone is nice. Our initial drinks at the bar while waiting were EXCELLENT! The host, a handsome, well dressed male, (i wish i could remember his name) was so nice, very funny and even though the restaurant is small and very packed, he relaxed you and was so personable. He called me “red dress”. I would go back to see him and our server Fanta. She was great and explained everything on the menu to a T. I’m only giving 5 stars bc our drinks took a while to come to the table and our food didn’t come all together- two guests entrees hit and 7 mins later everyone else’s. We are the kind of people who like to eat all together. so food gets cold but overall a great place to eat. i will go back!
We had a great time! Our waitress was very knowledgeable and she even gave us a free slice of cake for waiting a little. And by slice, I mean MOUNTAIN! That thing was huge! The drinks are great too!
A M A Z I N G ! ! Went in late. Still amazing. Poor Calvins for life.
Best scratch kitchen in Midtown ATL
Everything was awesome! We love Poor Calvin’s. Fanta, our server, was excellent.
Poor Calvin’s constantly amazes and astounds me. Calvin has mastered, flavor, texture and presentation. I personally don’t like kale, but would eat numerous plates of the kale served here. His attention to detail is showcased in every ingredient used, allowing a flavorful expression of his creativity. Absolutely amazing experience! Highly recommended!
The Lychee Martini was really goodI however, I wasn’t pleased with our servers demeanor. Seemed to be defensive. I complain that the fried taste burnt and it was over fried and dry. He said nothing wrong with it, that’s how it supposed to be since it’s double battered. Needless to say I didn’t eat any of it.
Thought the kitchen was too small and I can see where there can be some cross contamination from patrons walking pass the food station to go to the bathroom or to be seated.
Needs some attention.
Great food, service and ambiance! We love this lace and definitely recommend it.
They open at 5p.m. Valet is complementary. Food was great, dessert was too awesome red velvet cake like you’ve never had. You will feel guilty after you’ve had one bite of this cake....just ordering it should be a crime...delish...a must try...the lobster Mac and cheese. This gem is a must visit, the only thing poor about Poor Calvin’s, is....it would be a Poor shame if you don’t visit.
I love Poor Calvin's! The food is always great with breathtaking presentations. The staff are very knowledgeable and attentive.
The food was AMAZING. I was skeptical about Asian flavors mixed with Southern comfort food but it was great! The service was so wonderful too!
As always we enjoyed so much the food and service. We took two of our friends who had never been before. They loved everything from the lobster won tons to their main course of pad Thai tiger shrimp. Our service was as great personality and was so helpful.
We definitely will continue to bring friends and family to this wonderful spot.
One of the best spots in all of Atlanta. Every menu item is seemingly better than the next.
Love stopping by this spot whenever I’m in Atlanta. Can’t recommend it enough!
I chose this place to celebrate my birthday thinking it was family oriented. The management and waiters were very rude to us because we wanted to add a high chair to our table for my niece. They were not at all accommodating for my party. Also, the place is very small and tight space. The whole place is not even properly insulated for air conditioning. I was very uncomfortable while eating due to the heat. They are trying to mimic some upscale restaurant in New York. They acted as if we were lower class than they. Mind you I’m a Nurse Practitioner who works at a very busy Atlanta hospital. To add, if you are not happy with something on your plate, they are not willing to change it. You could not even eat pork and they will not take it out of the entree for you. This place is definitely for an acquired taste. I was not happy at all to celebrate here and very disappointed. I will never return here or recommend anyone to eat here. The only good thing about this place is the valet service. Poor Calvin’s has unprofessional management and needs to be re-evaluated.
Only thing I would really say is the porch was sooooo hot to eat in... and it was only 8:30p. They need better air control in there because inside is freezing.... Also, that area is really loud with no music... so if you want something more quite and intimate then I would suggest sitting inside.
We made a reservation for a special anniversary dinner at 8 pm, hoping to have a leisurely meal prior to a 10 pm show we had tickets for. We were seated immediately about 10 minutes prior to our reservation, and waiter service was prompt. However, when we placed our food orders, it came out within one to two minutes. I actually said it couldn't possibly be ours because we had literally just ordered, but it was. We were halfway done with our food before our drinks came from the bar, and because of the constant check ins by the very attentive wait staff, we didn't feel comfortable just sitting there over our empty plates for very long. We paid the bill and were out the door in 20-25 minutes. It felt very rushed for a $100 meal for two. Our food was very good, though - lobster fried rice and the fried chicken, and two specialty cocktails.
The bartender was hilarious. Our servers were extraordinary! We will definitely be back!
Amazing food! Exceptional service!
Everything was so delicious! The temperature of the indoor patio area was a bit warm but it was also 90+ degrees outside. I love the food here!
Food and service was absolutely grand . Hostess were warm and very accommodating.
Great spot for casual dinner. Recommend their cocktails.
Hostess very rude. We had reservations for 7pm with friends. Friends arrived 15 min before reservation time and asked to be seated at table to have a cocktails. Note all bar seats occupied. Hostess initially refused. When husband insisted she told him we would have to be finished by 9 pm! Note numerous table open.
They will never return! They are over 70 y/o. Poor customer service.
Waiter very good
We had a great experience. Food was exceptional. We had the Pad Thai and a seafood mash up that I can't remember the name of, but it was awesome. We will be back!
Our waitress was very knowledgeable and friendly, she made it a great experience. The food and cocktails were original and prepared with care.
Great selection , very pleased with my meal and service
Overall great dining experience and the food was served hot and exceptionally good. It is now one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta!
I LOVE Poor Calvin's! I love the food, the staff, the drinks, the atmosphere.....I love everything about it!
My experience at Poor Calvins was honestly the absolute best dining experience that I have had in a very long time. The menu inspires you to want to try new things. Everything that I've tried from the lunch to the dinner menu and from every appetizer to dessert, taste undeniably amazing. The service is the absolute best, the servers are so attentive and can explain the entire menu and will help you accomplish whatever satisfying taste you want. The cocktails are amazing every flavor is so fresh, sweet and bold. Whatever it's for and whenever you can try this restaurant it truly is a gem and you csn taste the love, dedication and originality in the food.
The food was very tastey. Loved how knowledgeable our waitress was. The valet was annoying with lack of information but drinks were BOMB! And we will be back for more.
The food was delicious, the service very helpful.
I can’t wait to go back!
My favorite restaurant in Atlanta!! Loved
As always, outstanding food and service! Thanks to Alicia - great server!
Food is amazing. Fried rice in pineapple and crab grilled cheese are a must
I kept looking at the other patrons plates. The food was very well presented and the taste was great. I went for brunch and enjoyed the sweet potato waffle with chicken. My friend's Lobster and friend rice was exceptionally good. I'll be back again.
Love love love this place! Can't wait to go back. Drinks were great as well
Very nice Sexy personal vibe,enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Prices was great too!
Poor Calvin's was a delightful find. Three of us traveled into the city for a concert and had dinner in advance on the recommendations of several people. The ambiance is nice, but not overdone. Not pretentious. The service and food exceeded our expectations. Our waiter was informative and helpful, fully answered all questions we had about the food--without having go to the kitchen to ask. The servings were large. The food was so flavorful! One of the best fusion restaurants I’ve been to. And each of us had a different specialty cocktail--that was fun. We look forward to returning and trying the whisky/bourbon tasting and more of the menu.
Crispy beef excellent as usual. Hubby had seafood which was fresh and tasty. Service on point.
Love this restaurant - we like to stop when coming back from airport. Nice people and great food
Food was delicious and the wait staff could not have been friendlier!
