Great food, ambiance and drinks!!!! On a Saturday night, of your reservation Is for let’s say 9:30, don’t expect anything before your time. This place is a hot spot that will have you seated exactly when you ask not later or earlier!
Ambiance was great food was delicious! If your in Atlanta is a must you visit!
This place is an all-around 5 Star dining experience. From the moment you arrive, you can feel the energy. The staff is well educated in their menu from the delicious hand crafted drinks (I recommend and of their signature cocktails) to enticing appetizers (try the deep fried deviled eggs) and I always want to get their house special or Lobster Fried Rice. You can't go wrong. Impeccable service, food that is perfectly seasoned and prepared in a way that will make you want to keep coming back. Desserts that are to-die for! If you haven't saved room for dessert, get it to go, just don't miss out!
The food was very good and the service was amazing! The staff was incredibly attentive and very friendly. We definitely plan on going back.
Everything was great! Starting with valet parking great! Staff was friendly and accommodating. They asked about food allergies before we started. Great off menu items for the night including several seafood dishes.
The seafood melange with the saffron pasta is a must try!
If you’ve never had duck this is the place to try it! Nicely smoked and so tender and flavorful.
The desserts are great and big enough to share! Great service and birthday dinner
We had an amazing waiter and bartender!! Robert and James could not have been better! They were both so kind and friendly and were very knowledgeable about what we would like! They have us feel like home!!!
Lola was an energetic and fun server!
Service is outstanding!! The staff is very attentive and the food...WOW! Food is unbelievably creative and so very delicious!!!
Great food on every visit. Every entree I've ordered has been delicious.
Consistently vivacious, fast, fun and flavorful - I’ve never had a bad meal. Really different and interesting ingredient combinations presented in an eye pleasing way.
Never disappointed when I dine at Poor Calvin’s! The staff is amazing, the drinks are divine and the food is BEYOND!
nice decor , friendly attentive service, good food , little noisy table for 2 small , but you will have a good experience
Food was incredible and so was the service!!! We had such a great time! Definitely one of my favorite places to dine in Atlanta!
You have to try those crab fries yumm.
Crispy beef & fried rice.
Enjoyed our waitress Ms. Sha-na-na herself! She was great, attentive, and a whole mood!
Everything was great. Our waiter, I believe his name was Sean, was amazing and only added to our overall dining experience. Poor Calvin's is a house favorite for us.
Enjoyed the meal at Poor Calvin’s. Interesting mix of flavor and style. Asian with flair. We had Lobster Fried Rice and Sweet and sour chicken, both very tasty. Dessert was awesome! Service was very good — timely, attentive, and friendly.
Enjoyed the experience and will return.
As always, the food was absolutely delicious. Our server was amazing and very informative - described everything so well. Overall it left a great impression on my date who had never dined here before. One of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta, hands down.
The service and food was outstanding. Very satisfied.
We did wait about 30 minutes for our reservation which was not ideal but the bar, while crowded, still offered excellent cocktails with little wait. The staff was very apologetic and kept us updated. When we arrived at our table, the manager comped us 3 apps which was above and beyond our inconvenience for the wait. The service was fantastic. The food was fantastic. Everything (outside of the minor inconvenience of a wait) was perfect. As a restaurant, you cant control when tables open up, you can only estimate. However, the response of making your guests feel welcomed and compensated for the inconvenience is something you can do. Their response was more than I could have ever expected. Poor Calvins has always been on my list as a solid option but now it is at the top of the list. Well done!
Amazing food. Great service. Little noisy but worth it for the food.
Food and drinks were excellent. Server was intrusive and very loud. Felt rushed at times.
The food is fabulous -- consistently so. Love sitting on the cozy and festive porch in the rear. A little noisy, but at least there is no music blaring.
Incredible food and probably the best server (Lola) that you will ever encounter at a restaurant when you want to have a good time.
Wonderful experience. Recommend!
The portions are smaller and the cost has increased. The crispy beef definitely didn’t taste the same as it normally does. It will be a long time before I return.
The food and our server Lola was amazing... every main foe dish was amazing. Definitely coming back - this is an Atlanta gem
Food was AMAZING as always! Tried the seafood omelet for the first time and my husband tried the sweet and sour chicken, both did not disappoint! One of my favorite places in ATL! And Calvin is super cool 😎
Everytime I come to Poor Calvin's, my tastebuds are exposed to yet another culinary marvel. This time I had the fried chicken with lobster mac and cheese and collard greens and I damn near passed out it was so good. I have no had a bad dining experience yet with Poor Calvin's and I don't see that ever happening! Magnifique!! 👏🏾👏🏾
A friendly restaurant with good Asian fusion food. Cocktails are good and strong. Be aware that you can be drunk easily there ; ) the only disappointment was the dessert. Not good, sugary, fatty, untasty. I recommend avoiding them, which in a way is good for your budget (the restaurant is pricy) and your diet.
Everything was phenomenal, from the moment we walked in through the end. Carla was extremely knowledgeable and energetic about the menu. She gave us excellent recommendations. Service was prompt on everything from drinks to clearing the table. Food was outstanding. Fried rice and lobster, as well as the crispy beef were bursting with color and flavor. We loved the deviled eggs with Korean BBQ pork. Thank you for a great night!
It’s always good to dine at Poor Calvin. My speciality is the lobster fried rice.
This is my third time at Calvin’s and definitely the least of my favorite. The food is fantastic, as always, however the rest of the experience was below Calvin’s standards that I have experienced. I had a reservation at 1:30 and wasn’t seated until 1:50 because the hostess said she was “waiting for our table to leave”, although there were clearly other tables open. We sat on the closed in porch area and it was so loud that we had to shout throughout our meal and our waiter literally had to shout at us the entire time. Our waiter was also somewhat off-putting as he interrupted one of the people at the table to tell them “you shouldn’t order that. Instead you should get ....”, which I felt was very rude. As I said before, the food came out timely and was amazing. I have recommended this restaurant several times, unfortunately I will have a difficult time returning after this experience.
Amazing. Friendly staff and very nice ambiance
Server was amazing and so were the chef's specials.
Fantastic food and drinks. We always have the best time here, but our New Year Day server Rahwa truly made our experience top notch. Compliments to Calvin for having such a great team. Makes all the difference!
Great service, everyone was welcoming! And they had variety of food options!
Poor customer service from their management (Carrie) once our order came out incorrect. Extremely unprofessional and rude. I will be coming back to this establishment.
We love the food and the cocktails are amazing!!
