We had a large party and were accommodated very well. Every staff member encountered was very nice and helpful. Waitstaff was very attentive and answered questions about the food. Drinks and food came out very quickly, especially for a large party. Food and drink were delicious. I will be back.

Loved this restaurant. The only thing I didn't like was the bartender didn’t have gloves on when putting ice in the cup.

We came on Sunday February 16 to indulge in some of their seafood entrees, however they were out of stock on most of the menu that are local favorites. Our server blamed it on being busy for Valentine’s Day, this should not be the excuse given to the consumer. We do not care about that. We just want to eat the items listed for sale on the menu. The managers should have properly planned ahead and even taken steps to get product from local places like Restaurant Depot or Costco. My daughter really wanted Bon Ton for her birthday dinner but we left very disappointed and ended up at RA Sushi.

Food was great and the atmosphere was fun, but we had a reservation for 8:45 and were not seated until 9:30. Also, once we were seated, service was a bit slow. They may have been short-staffed, so I would go again to give it another chance.

We ate there for anniversary day lunch. The scene was cool. We really love the art displayed all around. The service was great and very friendly. And the food was amazing! We definitely plan on going back to explore some of the other foods on the menu!

Excellent staff except I ordered a drink took 1 hour ate my food , ask server what happened to my drink , he lied and said I didn’t order one .... but he checked my I.d. ! I preferred and it still took 30 minutes. Bartenders are good but not efficient.

Enjoyed our shrimp po-boys and gumbo very much. Restaurant is small, so it can feel a bit cramped, but the food and service were great.

Amaaaazingggg seafood flare! The ambience is amazing with a great twist of the 70s, and feminine aurora. The food was delicious, I had the seafood boil and it’s spice is superb and perfect. I also had the hurricane which was harder to finish but good! I will definitely be returning to explore this menu, but will opt for the bar. My server Christian kind of ruined the experience for me, he was extremely condescending and made it obvious he was annoyed that he had to serve me and my group. He also completely ignored that it was my birthday and rushed us out when I was clearly still eating. He literally attempted to hand me my check as I was dipping food into butter. But luckily the decor and menu excused his poor service.

I’ve gone a couple of times now. The restaurant itself is super cute and kinda quirky. Small but comfortable. I have tried the shrimp burger, crab cake sandwich, crab claws, broccoli, mussels, & smoked crab legs. All pretty delicious! Their seafood has like a spicy Cajun seasoning on it. The only thing I’m not really a fan of is the Mac n cheese. Its the shell pasta and just not what I was expecting. Their speciality drinks are pretty good. Not spectacular but worth trying. Definitely would recommend and I will be back!

This is mine and my boyfriend’s absolute FAVORITE restaurant in Atlanta! The food is delicious and has never once disappointed us. The ambiance is so moody and artsy. And the staff are all extremely kind and attentive. Every time we have friends or family in town, we bring them here. Can’t wait for our next visit!

The food is always delicious!!! Never misses a beat in my opinion. We got the andouille poutine sweet potato fries as an appetizer — absolutely delicious!

The drinks are a little pricey but worth it. The specials always please.

Only complaint would be the space is a little tight... you’re pretty close to the other tables.

MAKE A RESERVATION!!!

Dinner was really amazing. I would’ve never thought to find this type of cuisine in Atlanta let alone a few mins from my apt. Food was amazing and awesome ambiance. Service could be wayyyyyyy better but it wasn’t bad enough that I wouldn’t return. They could just be more attentive is all.

Menu was a little limited for my wife, who is gluten-free, but otherwise it was excellent. I’m from New Orleans, so I am tend to be highly critical of Cajun style food, but I had the crawfish Po boy and the gumbo and both were very good. My wife had the peel and eat shrimp, and they were somewhat spicy, but perfect for the way we like it. Overall, I would highly recommend, And certainly eat again

We hit Bon Ton for a pre-Wicked dinner and it worked out fine. We allowed ourselves two hours for dinner and time to make the short walk to the Fox. The menu has many different New Orleans-inspired dishes. I had the Bon Mie sandwich with blackened catfish and it was plenty spicy! Just what I was looking for too.

Don't forget the creative cocktail menu too. I tried a House Old Fashioned and then went for a bourbon Mai Tai. Both were well crafted and hit the spot.

I would definitely put Bon Ton on your pre-Fox show dinner rotation.

In my honest opinion I would say the food was good. The sauces and the flavor profile of all the food was pretty much there. I was indecisive of where to take my boyfriend out for his birthday dinner but we opted on trying somewhere new, which brought us here. We had some high expectations due to reviews and we do work in the industry (myself a waitress and him a chef). That is why pinning it back to food we would say it was there. I suppose I can’t expect much as far as wine selection goes... but I do feel if one is to ask about a certain wine and you do not carry it then perhaps suggest something that falls under whatever one was seeking, or ask questions. However, due to the reaction of our server I didn’t feel that he was savvy enough to trust in his suggestions. I am a firm believer that what you drink has to compliment what you’re eating. My boyfriend was trying to enjoy the whole experience so he was being a good sport attempting to like the wine and finish it. To sum it all up the food was good, birthday note was put in and wasn’t acknowledged (at least a simple Happy Birthday would’ve sufficed), service was just okay. Overall rating for me is a 3.5/5.
