great food and service.
I love poor Calvins it's one of my favorite restaurants. I go at least once a month I love the manager, he's awesome.
This was not my first time here but it was my husband's. I've learned to do research before taking him to new spaces. He loves a good cocktail when out for dinner. He also is one to always order an appetizer. In addition he like fresh foods and to try new things so this place is made for all of that. The service is always excellent and the staff friendly and knowledgeable. The drinks are always interesting yet flavorful as is the food. If you go and want to share dessert as a group, get the apple.
My only quark about this place is the valet, but that is contracted out. Each time I found them to be a little unprofessional.
The food was pretty good, but Linda made the whole experience. She is fantastic!
Robert our server was very cordial and attitude was great. Very knowledgeable about menu. Food was really good. I had the wontons and lobster fried rice-sooo good. Will be back to try a few more items.
Great as always!
The food was amazing! Service was good as well however at the end of our meal, we heard our server tell another table the special of the night and it sounded delicious but we were never told about it. But overall, great experience.
Fun food place with interesting ambience
Must make reservations.
Really nice casual spot. You must try the lychee martini. Loved the service, everybody pay attention to you
Food was incredible! Would definitely recommend Pad Thai tiger shrimp. Huge portions, great value. Cool atmosphere.
Was recommended by a friend. Did not disappoint.
EXCELLENT ON EVERY LEVEL. OUR NEW FAVORITE RESTAURANT !!!!
We came for boozy brunch because Poor Calvin's has sangria, which is hard to find for brunch. We were a party of three and decided to share small bites and the Lobster Fried Rice. We had the beignets, lobster won tons, and calimari. The presentations were creative, and the food was flavorful. Our server was awesome. He had great recommendations and was prompt with service. Next time I'm in Atlanta, I will check them out for dinner. I recommend this restaurant as a regular spot for locals.
Excellent service began at the door with James. He treated you at if he was welcoming you into his home. Then Tim, our wait staff along with the other servers, treated us with utmost care. Great place for dining so matter what the occasion. I'll be returning when I'm back in the ATL.
Absolutely wonderful! Would come more often if I didn't live far away.
B'day luch w/ Aunt to check new spot. Love It! Great, pleasant service. Great tasting food ( mines we're sauteed shrimp'n veggies with Jasmine rice , yum!) and they will attempt to modify for your health concerns or suggest options. Our waiter even surprised her w/ a delicious tasting desert for her day :) Definitely will return.
Absolute must try if you are in Atlanta. Great food and beverages. Deviled Eggs are possibly the most creative and best ever! The fried chicken is top notch as well as all entrees. Make sure to save room for dessert. My favorite is their twist on a candy apple, but all desserts are out of this world. Cocktails are seasonal and crafted with fresh and delicious ingredients. My top two are the Jasmine Manhattan and Frankly My Dear!
Fun place with interesting (and yummy)food. Cocktails were inventive but didn’t make it—a bit overdone. Great service! Definitely try it!
Fun spot, very creative food and presentation. For such a high level establishment, a little Hard to eat gluten free as much is breaded and fried. Not much option to alter, from server anyway.
Delicious meal before show at the Fox. Valet parking. Easy in and out with a 5:30 or 6 reservation. The food was terrific. Highly recommend!
Wonderful and cozy. Excellent customer service!
Wonderful service from Sylvia and tasty food. In Atlanta on business but it felt like a party!
Upon arriving, we check in for 8:30 reservation which we were able to be seated immediately 30 minutes early. After being seated, we were greeted by one of the sweetest waitresses. Her name is Linda I believe, but forgive me I am bad with names sometime. She asked where we celebrating anything special and also did we have any food allergies she should be aware of. She recommended great drink selections and explain the menu in full detail and answered all questions about the food items that we had. Everything from appetizers to dessert was amazing!!! My partner and I enjoyed every part of the experience, from the amazing food to the romantic yet energizing atmosphere. This was our first time at Poor Calvin's but it would definitely not be our last. You have gained lifetime customers! Five star experience!!!
We had the beef and fried chicken and it was wonderful!
Amazing food married with amazing service!!! I will definitely be a repeat customer.
Poor Calvin’s never disappoints!
Excellent restaurant for special occasion or everyday dining. Superior wait staff, excellent bartender/cocktails and beautiful food presentation. Six of us had different entrees and all exceeded expectations.
Both the food and ambience were outstanding. A great location to eat with friends or for date night.
We thoroughly enjoyed our date night at Calvin's. We had seafood spring rolls, frog legs, calamari, and seafood siam wok. The spring rolls were crispy and the seafood filling was scrumptous with a good balance of meat and vegis. The frog legs - tender and tasty. And the calamari was excellent. The wok is always a favorite with the generous portions of seafood and vegetables in a rich broth with a hint of spice. Delicious! My only regret was not saving room for Calvin's signature desserts. There's always the next time :-) Always great service each time we visit. We will be back soon. Highly recommend!
Excellent service. James and the Bar crew are on point. Food fabulous
Had an awesome experience at Poor Calvin’s! The cocktails and food were phenomenal and the service even better! It was my first time there, but definitely won’t be the last.
Love this place!
I have never had a bad experience. Food and service is always top notch. You have a customer for life!!!
We had a fabulous experience and will definitely be back. Service was amazing (our server Tim was so attentive and informative about the dishes). The food was excellent and a great price. Already planning our next visit!
Nice place to eat and drink, food was delicious.
I always enjoy Poor Calvin's. No other brunch spot does it for me. And Sha Na Na is my favorite waitress.
I made reservations for 6 for my birthday. When my party got there which was a few minutes late we were told since there were only 5 of us we needed to be seated immediately and that the last person would not be able to sit at our table. I have never heard of anything like that before. So we called the last person and he didn’t answer. We decided to sit down in hopes that he would eventually make it. 3 minutes later he walked to the table with a special gift for me. They proceeded to tell my guest he would have to sit at the bar. My whole party was very upset and wanted to leave but decided to sit at the bar. The bartender was amazing and the food was great. We may return.
