Steakhouse
ARNETTE'S Chop Shop is a modern take on the traditional American steakhouse and features a contemporary, chef-driven menu, extensive wine list and a well-curated craft cocktail program.

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.

Arnette’s chop house was excellent. Service was very good, steak tartare was delicious as were the entree steaks. Cocktails and wine choice were also excellent. We had a great night and will be back!

We were in the upstairs bar area this time and it’s got a good vibe busy for a Saturday afternoon. Service was great - attentive, eager to please, good recommendations. Burger came out way over cooked and took awhile to get a replacement. Husband’s steak was perfect but the steak at table next to us was over cooked too. Staff did what they could but seems like kitchen needs some 101. No compensation for the food issues. Server made off hand comment about giving us free dessert but never followed through.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 .

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.

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. $$

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.
