    A gem in Westside. Parking available with comp valet. The shrimp & avocado appetizer was well prepared. Perfectly grilled shrimp, good blend of flavors. Loved the kale salad. Simple yet flavourful. Pasta with vodka sauce was lightly creamy with bright blistered tomatoes. Could have used just a few more asparagus bits. Risotto with collards was a blend of smokey & creamy.. Would go again.

    We had a completely wonderful meal at Baffi. We dined on the outdoor terrace on a balmy evening and chose to order a sampling of Waxman's dishes from across the menu. Every morsel was a delight. A nod to Italian cuisine -- but with Waxman's touches -- Baffi is a highlight of Atlanta dining.

    Nice indoor/outdoor restaurant with good food. On this particular day the bartender was our waiter....double duty, which created slower service than normal since other tables were being serviced by this one bartender/waiter. Another waiter/waitress would have been nice and would have improved wait times

    Went there for Mother's Day and was a very mediocre experience. Our server, although generally competent, was aloof and not very friendly. For example, after taking and bringing our drinks and appetizers, she first informed us when taking our main course order that the restaurant was out of pizza dough. Strange that an Italian restaurant would run our of pizza dough at lunch; it was already a pretty limited menu to begin with and this made it even more so. This would have been nice to know at the outset of the meal, as we were planning to order some pizzas and salads, so we had to regroup and change our orders all around. As for the actual entrees: One of our party ordered the The "Seasonal Lettuces" salad with pulled chicken. This was supposed to come with strawberries according to the menu, but arrived with only lettuce, some sliced radishes, and pulled chicken - for $20. When we inquired about the missing strawberries, the server told us that sometimes the kitchen adds them when they have them in stock, but must have run out. Imagine our surprise then when we saw a tray of chocolate covered strawberries set out in the service area in the open kitchen. Perhaps they used all the strawberries to make chocolate-covered strawberries to give to the Moms at the restaurant? Nope, just the staff passing by and taking/eating them. The steak salads were fine, although the steak came out overcooked and was not the quality expected for the $25 price tag. On the plus side, the beet salad and fried green bean appetizer were very good, as was the iced tea, which seemed to be fresh brewed and not packaged. The brunch breads (2 slices of banana bread and 3 small biscuits) were also good, although I note that South City Kitchen offers something similar complementary as opposed to the $10 charged here. All in all, almost $200 (tip included) for a brunch for 5 for a very mediocre meal. I think I'll wait to hear that things have improved greatly before returning.

    Summary: It was fine but we won’t be dining there again. Specifics: We went for Mother’s Day with a party of seven people. It was our first visit to Baffi. The restaurant has a very open layout and has a lovely contemporary design. Service was slow and we had to ask for something more than once. The food was fine; there wasn’t anything wrong with it but it was not worth $20-$25 an entree. We felt that we were paying more for the name and location than for the food and service.

    We were the only people dining at 8 on a Friday night. Service was very slow. Server seemed confused and kept forgetting to put in drinks. 1 bartender and it took 20 minutes to get a bottled beer. No modifications allowed because of the time they take. When we looked into the kitchen, the entire staff was relaxing because there were no other tables to cook for. Food had very little flavor.

    Our first visit and we wanted so much to love Baffi. The wine list was well sourced and the cocktailmenu looked interesting. We ordered arancini for our appetizer which included 5 small rice balls resting on marinara sauce. That was basically 5 generous mouthfuls for $12. They were good but would not reorder. We ordered 2 pastas...gnocchi and fusilli. Again they were both good but not memorable and if we came back we would try something different. The chicken at a neighboring table looked very tempting. We appreciate using the best locally sourced ingredients available at the time but just felt that someting was not working with this very limited menu.

    We were excited to eat here and had fallen in love with Jonathan Waxman on the Top Chef Masters series. Unfortunately, we were quite disappointed. Although the gnocchi was good and very light and fluffy, the short rib ragu lacked the depth of flavor we expected and was very bland. Apparently, Waxman doesn’t visit often so quality control may be lacking. Still willing to try his NYC restaurant next time we visit, but will not return to Baffi.

    Third time at Baffi. I want to like this place, but don’t think I’m going back. Atmosphere feels cold and good is mediocre. Hardly anyone there last night (Friday night) at 7pm. Food isn’t bad, just isn’t special and very small selection.

    Good experience overall, the appetizers were unfortunately under-seasoned. The roasted chicken and dessert were both excellent. We loved the simple menu and wine menu focusing on Italian wines. Good service, good value, great decor. Neighboring table was very energetic, but Baffi can’t be blamed for their behavior. I would recommend at least one visit, probably consider hosting clients here in the future.

    The white pizza and brussel sprouts were outstanding! The kale salad and JW chicken are always amazing! But the salmon risotto was sub par and the fusilli was very oily. Our server was very attentive. We loved Brezza so want to support Baffi. I wish the gnocchi was what it used to be and they offered the burrata.

    2.5 stars. It’s almost an average place. Decors is minimalist and modern, but the dining room has no architectural flair. Tempranillo was good. Margarita was bland. Meatballs with grits appetizer was average (meat bland but red sauce mixed with grits brought it up to average). 15 year old liked the wood fired calamari, though I agree with the sever: it’s slimy. Margarita pizza crust was bland and not rescued by sauce and cheese. Gnocchi was good, maybe great. Tagliatelle short rib was alright, though it could have been a little sweeter or, something. Sever was pleasant but came around just a bit too infrequently. Bill was 110 without the alcohol or tip (155 total without tip). Not worth it. I wanted it to be good, but there are better restaurants.

    The drink I had was not good. The food wasn’t anything to be excited about. I had the pulled chicken pizza. The service was okay, they were short and working hard and I can understand that.

    This is a real gem in atlanta. I was shocked it was not busier on a Saturday night. The atmosphere was great, vibrant and welcoming. Service was spectacular, offering suggesting on every course and cocktails as well. I would have paid $10-$15 more per main course the quality was so good. Each dish came out hot and hit everything I wanted with a night out.
