Overall, I like the drinks that they have. They have plenty to choose from so you can never go empty-handed. The food was pretty good as well. I got the wings and they were pretty good. The overall Ambience of the place was very energetic as they had a live DJ playing music. Overall, a very good place to bring guests to, have an intimate dates or gather with a group of friends

The ambiance at Agency Socialthèque is amazing. The food, drinks, and service never disappoints. The bar manager Taylor (I believe that’s her name) is very personable, and has a knack for customer service. I would give this place 10 stars. Great selection of libations and food pairings. Go check it out!

Pros: The location is very convenient and the decor is sleek.

Cons: The service was sub-par on a very slow night. The menu is entirely too small and lacks variety. The ambiance is candlelit but quite boring. The food was underwhelming to say the least.

This place needs work. It’s a great concept but wasn’t exactly executed all the way.

I have a mostly plant based diet. My waiter recommended the vegetarian cheesesteak.. I was expecting something with texture, like a veggie burger or something. I was served mixed stir fried vegetables with melted cheese on the top of a gluten free bun.
I must say I was quite disappointed and unsatisfied...

I told my waiter, and was not offered anything complimentary...
I left still hungry.

We want to love this restaurant.

For the unfamiliar, it’s hyper-convenient location and super-easy parking (with or without valet) give it a great head start. It’s the polar opposite of its predecessor (Shout): quiet. The serpentine DR is booth-rich and doesn’t feel as high-capacity as it is. The menu is varied, offering seasonal changes, three vegetarian entrees, a breadth of meats and a brief dessert menu. No kids menu, but everything else is kid-friendly.

Server was polite and prompt. Water, cocktails, starters and entrees were delivered apace. Dessert and espresso were delivered simultaneously – unheard of in Atlanta.

We were quietly celebrating our twenty-fifth anniversary, only mentioning it briefly as we were being seated. When problems began to occur, I determined to ignore them in the moment, in exchange for the appearance of a blissful celebration. Therefore, I’m confident the additional issues were not retribution for complaints, just poor management of imperfect staff.

First, I was served an entree I did not order: chicken tenders, instead of the signature fried chicken. Now, tenders are my spouse’s favorite meal, the mistake cost 40% less and the tenders *were* superlative, so I figured there might be serendipity in the mistake.

Second, my chocolate chip mint créme brûlée was curdled, watery and oversweetened with Andes Mint candy. Nice idea, though.

Third, in a dining room less than 20% full, between 7 and 8:30 PM, a manager never checked with our table.

Arrived early, sat at bar to have a drink. Took about 5 minutes to place our order. My boyfriend and I both ordered dirty martinis with blue cheese stuffed olives. The very small martinis arrived, my olives were not stuffed with anything and only one of his was. They were not made “dirty” either. I got the bartenders attention and mentioned the olives, he took out the two, used his hand to pick up two more to skewer and plopped them back in my glass, still only one was stuffed. At that point I gave up. We got the bill, $35! I had to ask for itemized receipt. The olives were $2 each drink. At that point I complained as the drink was made incorrectly and the olives (2 of 6) were not stuffed. They took off the olives and gave us 15% off. At that point we left and went to the Tavern and had a nice dinner.

It was a shame because I have been to the Savannah location. Packed, great service, fantastic food. Doubt this location (which was very empty for a Friday night) with the cost of cocktails and lack of good help will last long. Disappointed.

The food was really good. I just had appetizers (tomato soup and empanadas) which was perfect. My husband had calamari and a huge burger. We wanted to go and have a nice bite but were craving basic food like burgers. This was perfect. The ambiance is upscale but you can go in jeans. It's in Phipps mall. There are a lot of options. I tend to worry that the quality of the food won't be good when the menu is big, but everything we tried was great.

Spinach dip for an appetizer is a great choice. We had salads and the tea brind chicken entree, desert was peach cobbler to go with vanilla ice cream which could use a nice crust or more crumbles, the ice cream was freezer burned.

So the espresso steak didn't have as much flavor as I might have expected but it was perfectly prepared. My two friends' fish dishes were both amazingly flavorful as were all the vegetables that came with the dishes - mine included. I could have dined on those alone. Great dessert. Attentive service. Would go again. In fact, I've been for lunch, dinner and drinks on three previous trips

Excellent choice of local special foods and goods wines and very affordable despite expensive location.
Even better service. in example : been there twice, first time 6 weeks ago, coincidentally had the same waitress both time. Six weeks later the waitress still knew exactly what we ate and drank the first time, unbelievable!

I don’t even know how to begin this review. In my entire 25 years of life I have yet to write a review. I thought RA sushi was the worst place I’ve eaten both food and service wise, however, by the grace of God this place managed to beat it. My roommate got the Lollipop Lamb chops and I’m not sure it was even lamb meat to begin with. This was either a dead bird or some sort of gray imitation meat. As a chef I don’t know how you even cook something like this and as a server I definitely don’t know how you place this in front of a human being to actually eat. When I put my fork in the meat it physically wiggled. Our reservation was at 7:30 PM, come 9:30 pm and we are going on our second drink - that is one cocktail and hour. Our friend went to check on our server SARAH and she was resting against the wall. We are now pushing on 3 hours and are again waiting for our drink along with our tabs. At this point our server SARAH has now hidden inside by the bar where she is again kneeling against the bar doing absolutely nothing. While I search for her I am informed by my friend that she has now sent her manager out to deliver our to go order. Actually hiding from our table. We had zero discounts on any of our checks. My first cocktail was half full and tasted like fruit punch. My next two cocktails, which I asked for more vodka, were charged at $20 a piece.

Again, I have never in my life written a review. I have worked in the restaurant business since I was 16 years old and have never in my life witnessed any type of service like this. End of story.

We will NEVER be eating here again and I strongly suggest that you save your money and patience and follow our footsteps. WASTE OF MONEY.
