    My husband and I were excited to try this restaurant. We were seated early, but had to wait 15 minutes for our server to take our drink order. We ordered 2 appetizers and 6 sushi rolls when we ordered our drinks. The food took so long that we canceled the last 2 sushi rolls. The server did what he could, but the food took too long and the sushi wasn’t as good as we hoped. It’s a pretty restaurant, but we won’t be back

    I’ve been plenty times to Bully Boy and always had an amazing time. Drinks food and ambiance is A1. But this particular time our waiter was a tad bit off. Really nice but just off and missed a few things. Of course I’ll go back but don’t want anyone to think it was horrible because it wasn’t. You’ll definitely enjoy yourself. So sexy especially for a date.

    Oysters were good…waited a long time for drinks and apps when dining room less than half full. Sushi was really flavorless, had the volcano and spirited away roll. Overall not impressed. One and done for us!

    I was blown away with the presentation of the food as well as the flavors. It’s Tapas style but 2 of us filled up on 3 plates. The beef wrapped asparagus, Chinese broccoli, and syrainglensishi roll with something seared on the outside were so good I couldn’t believe it. Can’t wait to go back!

    Every dish we had kept getting better and better! The service was fast and friendly without feeling rushed. Our server was knowledgeable but not pushy or scripted. Do not miss dishes from our meal would be the Brussel sprouts, lobster box, ceviche and oysters! They somehow manage to be fun, casual, upscale and romantic all at the same time! I highly recommend

    My sister-in-law came in town, so I booked Bully Boy after hearing great reviews from a friend. I think the location is convenient, they even have valet plus self parking. The ambiance is nice, tables nicely positioned. I enjoyed the space between tables, it wasn't overly crowded. Our service was great. The waiter, I believe his name was Bee, was very knowledgeable of the menu. We tried many things, and loved them all. However, the rock shrimp did not stand out like the others. My absolute favorites were the brussel sprouts and both sushi rolls! Overall, great experience! I would recommend this place for small groups and dates. I would also return. I am interested to experience the menu changes, as I noticed a few photos from previous reviews were not on the menu anymore.

    This was our first time dining at the restaurant and the menu selections are awesome. Unfortunately, while our server was very nice, he didn’t know much about the menu and unable to make any recommendations. We had shrimp shumai and shashito peppers which were both good and generously portioned. We then had the octopus, which we asked to send back. While the flavor was very interesting and creative, the octopus was like rubber. We also had the tuna hamachi and black cod. Both were just ok.

    Treandy spot with great food, great service, great drinks and great music. Everything that gives a establishment great personality. Something else unique to Bully Boy is they make you feel like family which isn't common or often missing from restaurants in the city of Atlanta! This Brooklyn Kid is happy with the results!!!! Good job guys

    The cocktails were excellent. The food came out fast and it was very good. Don’t bother with the soy sauce. The sushi is already seasoned perfectly. I didn’t care for the sauce that came with the oysters, but they didn’t need any sauce anyway. The Brussels sprouts were excellent.

    We were excited for some yellowtail and crab fried rice! Unfortunately, I didn’t read the menu before we went and they no longer serve either item. The dishes we had were okay but not for the price. The brussel sprouts and cocktails were the best part of the meal.

    Our waiter, Catherine, as wonderful. The food was just okay with the highlights being the Brussel sprouts and duck. After encouragement to buy the "Chocolate Milk" Saki, we were told they did not have any more. Perhaps this was simply an off-night for them, but based on this experience, there are better choices for the money with a more varied menu eslewhere.

    The food was good, but the service was slow. The couple next to us was sat after us and ate their whole meal before all of apps were served. We ordered a 1/2 dozen oysters first and I pups have sworn they were out digging them up somewhere because they took forever to one out along with our first drinks. The duck spring rolls and negimaki came out next. Very good. We did order the MP whole Thai style fish. While everything was delicious and packed full of flavor all of these dishes were kind of cold upon service. We each had three drinks and our bill came to $245. The whole fish was HUGE so of course we ask for boxes. After a quick thought we asked if they could box the fix for us because it was proving difficult to do with just forks and chopsticks. We got the manager’s because our server kept disappearing and he comes over and says “I’m not gonna lie I don’t want to debone that.” We just paid $245 + 20% tip and he gave us an attitude about packing up the fish for us. The server ended up doing it, but it would’ve been nice if the people working in the kitchen would’ve been nice.
