My goodness, what a dining experience! Poor Calvin's is a must when visiting Atlanta! The food was excellent, and the staff so friendly, welcoming and accommodating. A special thank you to Griffin for being such a wonderful host! Looking forward to our next visit!
Fabulous food and service. Poor Calvin’s continues to be one of my neighborhood favorites with sumptuous dishes!
The food was amazing. My server Loyla was the absolute BEST!!!!
My experience at Poor Calvin’s was amazing. Everything from the food to the service was awesome. The lobster wontons were delicious. The fried green tomato appetizer was a must have and the lobster fried rice was even better than I dreamed it would be!
I love poor Calvin’s ambiance is always pleasant and the food is delicious 😋. If you haven’t tried poor Calvin’s what are you waiting for?!
Don't let the name, location, outside decor, or the "Asian Fusion With Southern Comfort" keep you from heading to Poor Calvin's. Skip The Varsity and head a few more blocks off the highway. The food, service, indoor decor, and overall style of Poor Calvin's were awesome. The lemongrass steamed muscle appetizer was flavored beautifully, the Siam fried grouper was light and delicious, the curry seafood melange so tasty, and kids fried rice with shrimp was awesome ... and then there was dessert. We had the goat cheese stuffed empanadas (one for dessert and the other for breakfast the next day) and we're still eating the Fuji chocolate-dipped maple-covered and rolled in nuts apple three days later! It was so good we iced it down as we traveled to a different hotel each of the next two days. The tiki long island iced tea was uniquely served and my pear bourbon drink was great, too.
Everything was amazing from the moment we walked through the door. From the host staff, to the service, to the food. My friend is a chef, and sometimes she’s hard to impress, but not this time. She talked about the food even after we left. I will definitely be returning. Thank you! Sorry I can’t remember my servers name, but she was exceptional.
Legit probably the best steak I have ever had. Ask for the Claypot
Everything about this place is amazing! We came on a Sunday night after reading the reviews online and they did not disappoint! The food was amazing. The drinks were great. Our waitress, Joy, was on point with every recommendation. Definitely a must when in ATL.
The ambiance was great with all of the fixtures and curtains. The food was amazing as usual. The customer service was great from beginning to end.
Enjoyed a nice night at Poor Calvin’s celebrating my moms birthday.
Amazing service and food ....we will definitely go back again
The manager was great. They accommodated our party ahead of our reservation and allowed us to sit outside as requested. The manager offered to cover our table even though there wasn’t a dedicated server outside at the time. She was INCREDIBLY kind, knowledgeable, welcoming, fun and had a great welcoming spirit. The food..... amazing! I had the calamari and the pineapple fried rice... yum! Even my vegetarian friend was able to find something that she enjoyed. The other young lady had lamb chops and she said they were delicious.
The server was not attentive. I was not privy of Poor Calvin's special of day meals or cocktail. PC's Karen shared daily specials with other customers not me. A very long wait to receive my entree. Karen boxed up my leftovers in the kitchen every other restaurant has changed the leftover boxing up process due to covid-45 you are given the task to box up your own food. Karen was side eye RUDE to another co worker twice that I overheard myself
From the moment I was greeted at the door, I was accommodated more than adequately than I expected. I would highly suggest this place for anyone looking for a cohesive experience.
I did not enjoy sitting by the front door which was open and flies came in. Food and service was great though.
We are big fans of both southern and Asian food, and while we love authentic food from both cuisines, we’re not foodies who can’t enjoy fusion food. Poor Calvin’s is a self-identified fusion restaurant, but I don’t think it nails either cuisine or it’s fusion creations. We had a sampler platter appetizer, the duck curry, crispy beef. Everything was just fine, not amazing. Stand out items were the lychee martini and red velvet suspension cake with mascarpone cheese. And our server was a character and provided excellent service. Finally, I do believe the prices are much much too high. Everyone raves about the restaurant so I decided to give it a second chance, but I was unfortunately disappointed.
Our server was AMAZING!! He was knowledgeable with all items on the menu and his up selling skills were on point. We ordered the wonton app as well as the surprise appetizer not on the menu. OMG. Our entrees 2 lobster and fried rice and 1 duck. Dessert consisted of the green pound cake and the one with the peach cobbler.
I wanted to do something nice for my mom and my son and decided to bring them to Poor Calvin’s. Mom and my son enjoyed everything!
Love Poor Calvin's!! The food and service was on point!!
Great food and service but parking is difficult and the place is a bit noisy
We decided to come to Poor Calvin's for our 5th year wedding anniversary and that was the best chooce we made. As we walked in, gave my last name, immediately we were told Happy Anniversary. They had a special place picked just for us which was perfect. We ordered the steam dumplings and the crispy beef. Both were amazing.
The only thing I was disappointed with was that they changed up on that colorful jasmine rice. That rice was to die for. That was our main reason for choosing this place. We ordered on doordash 2 weeks prior and wanted to experience that rice again. But overall, the food and servi e was amazing. I wish I could give 20 stars.
The best restaurant in Atlanta. I will be back and I have told everyone about this restaurant ugh I hate I forgot the waiter name but he’s a white male with long hair best waiter I ever had I will be back.
Poor Calvin’s was 10/10 from the exceptional service to the reasonably priced and delicious food.
This was our first time to dine-in in a restaurant in Atlanta since the Covid19 pandemic started. We were able to get an outside table sufficiently distanced to make us comfortable.
The meal was the usual -exceptional - Poor Calvin's standard. We shared a special of the day appetizer - The Fried Green Tomatoes with Crab - SIMPLY FANTASTIC ! This should be on the regular menu permanently.
I had the Soft-Shell Crab as my entree (another daily special) it too was absolutely wonderful !!!
Can't say enough good things about Poor Calvin's - It's our favorite restaurant in Atlanta.
Waiter was awesome
staff was very polite. service was great. spacing per customer needs to be adjusted
