Arnette's Chop Shop
The restaurant’s interior was created to compliment the industrial modern design movement, exposing the natural character of the reclaimed warehouse while blending vintage, classic and modern design influences.
The restaurant is split into two levels. The dining room is appointed with custom wood and leather booths, banquettes and tables. The main level also boasts an open kitchen complete with a custom built wood burning and open flame hearth and charbroiler.
The lavish upscale bar is positioned on the second level above the main entrance and dining room. The bar has a contemporary yet warm den style ambiance with a open air terrace. The ceilings are low and the walls are adorned with paintings of famous musicians of past and present.
Love this place! Excellent service and food. The upstairs bar area is a great space!
new Location, top service, nice bar upstairs
for Business or private Dining
expect high clientele and Dress nicely
we had been there for the wedding anniversary and had a good time
request outside seating if it is not too hot
Awesome meal, awesome service... expensive wine list! I suggest you check and see if they will let you bring your own wine and pay a corkage fee.
Great neighborhood atmosphere and service!
Arnette's is a really cool space. We loved the upstairs bar overlooking the green space across the street. The food is excellent; pricey but excellent. The reception staff was great. Very comfortable seating. Good noise level in the main restaurant. We were not really happy with our server. We had a bit of a hard time understanding him; no enthusiasm. Went twice in one week on this visit to Atlanta.
I’m reminded that the difference between a good restaurant and a great one is that the great restaurant exceeds my expectations every time!!
Borderline on recommending...we joked that the hash browns were not very good...nice presentation, but bring some from Waffle House next time. Biggest complaint I have is the portion size, especially for the steaks....all else the portions were adequate...but the steaks are 6 oz, small for the price. Nite and day difference if it was 8 oz.
Enjoyable evening. The steak and asparagus were perfect! Delicious!
Everything was amazing! Food, service, atmosphere, everything looks terrific!
Really enjoyed this visit. I had been last summer and it is much improved.
Steaks were over cooked and burned around the edges
Great food and setting
We had been to arnettes one time before and it was great. This time we got a waiter with tons of attitude and 3 of our 4 steaks arrived wildly overdone. The managers fixed it right away and gave us each a comp glass of wine. The steaks were very good when they arrived again. We still like arnettes a lot and will return but hope they work out the bumps. For what you pay it should be flawless and please bag the waiters with attitude. If they can’t handle the rush of a Saturday night they should not be there. Ps also maybe review the amount of bacon in each dish. Everything doesn’t have to have bacon as after a couple salads, appetizers and side dish with bacon it is overload. PPS our waiter the first visit was wonderful and helped make the evening a delight.
Was there for my birthday. Got there early 6:00 p.m.--highly recommended, as it is quiet and things move faster. Appetizers (bacon, shrimp de jonghe), Arnette's Tonic craft cocktail, steaks, were all perfect. Cher threw in a special dessert for me. I can be a tough critic, but the restaurant was at the top of its game that Saturday night.
A spectacular dinner and experience, once again at Arnette's Chop Shop!
Sat upstairs in the bar area for dinner. Total fun! Both tartare's, Tuna and steak...OUTRAGEOUS!! Extremely fresh, and beautifully presented. The Hearth salad, the best I've ever had !!
Cannot wait to go back! Thank you Michael and fabulous staff!!
Loved the physical space and the restaurant and bar are great venues. Our waiter James was excellent , very knowledgeable and responsive . I know it’s only a few bucks but don’t charge fornbread or steak sauces that’s just annoying and foolish. I did think tne wine list pricing was reasonable which was a nice surprise. Will try again maybe fotnsut at bar and split something .
Very enjoyable experience...great hospitality and food! Ask for Michael the owner and he’ll tell you about the paintings in the restaurant.
From the greeter at the door to the waitstaff, the service. was phenomenal!
Amazing experience, wonderful food, attentive service and relaxing ambience. We will definitely return.
It was outstanding!
Food was excellent.
Service was not great.
Tables are too crowded together - feels squashed and on top of another.
Excellent place for fine dining!
EXCELLENT FOOD AND SERVICE!!! My partner, his dad & stepmother went out for his birthday! We loved everything about this place! Can’t wait for a reason to come back!! James (our server) was awesome!!!
I have been several times now and the service has been spotty. One time, the waiter was so overbearing about the wine list and where he had worked before that it was very off-putting. Another visit, the steak was to be sliced and arrived not so, the occasion was a birthday and dessert was brought prematurely and with no utensils nor an offer for any. One of the sides ordered was totally misrepresented as all 3 people at the table understood something totally different. I will try the restaurant again and think the food is good but at the cost of the dinner one would expect flawless service.
Could not have been better. We Finnish the night at the upstairs bar.
The staff, service and ambiance are spectacular! And the food is just as great. Went 2 nights in a row and can’t wait to go back.
Top notch all the way. Dollar worth is over the top!
The server was very nice but it took forever for us to get our food. It was only 3 of us and everyone around us that ordered after us got their food before us. I have been here several times before and it has never taken that long to receive the food
Very trendy restaurant The plates were small and quite pricy for a la carte dining. The food was tasty but not extraordinary and for the prices it should be!
Not the original Arnettes. something is off. The food was terrible, service okay. The atmosphere is nice but the chandeliers were dirty. Something was just way off. Won't be back!
The food was amazing! Good size portions but the servers from my observation were not real friendly and did not do a good job explaining the menu... We actually ordered additional sides but it was only because we saw what the other table was served. The manager on the other hand was very friendly but I thought the menu was a little pricey. $$
Great birthday celebration experience. Our waiter, Dave, is world class!
We had a nice evening. The food was good and the service was good and then the bill came. They offered sauces that never had a price on them but they did. Then we saw that they charged us $8.00 for bread and butter. That was a real shock. We have eaten at many fine restaurants and have never been charged for bread. Also remove the special occasion from the sight. They give you a candle. Not sure if we will ever go back.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by the owner and other staff, and seated immediately. Definitely recommend making a reservation. The restaurant space is huge - indoor, upstairs and outdoor, with a Buckhead-meets NYC or Chicago ambiance. The food was amazing - from the oysters, salad starter and steaks and sides. The bread service was even a step above, offering three different butter spreads to try. Then came the dessert - we had wondering eyes the whole time we devoured the baked Alaska. Definitely a treat. And we definitely will be back.
We had a great evening! The food and service were amazing!!
On my second visit, I brought friends who’d never been before. We were all very pleased with the quality of the food and the service. It’s a beautiful restaurant and I’m looking forward to my next visit.
Excellent food... Excellent service... Excellent ambiance... In other words: Excellent!
I just went for an anniversary dinner and it was fantastic. The service was really strong both with the bartenders upstairs and our server was especially good (friendly manager/hostess too). We enjoyed dining downstairs this time just since it’s a little bit quieter but the upstairs atmosphere is also great. The steak frites and oysters were both delicious too.
One of Atlanta’s best! Michael Arnette has a superior menu. Top notch professional staff. Comfortable surroundings. The. Best. Food.
Always enjoy this restaurant. 10*
Great food and time with my son on my Birthday! Will go again with friends and enjoyed meeting Michael A (owner )!
