    The ambience was lovely, the cocktails were delicious, the service was very friendly and was very timely considering how busy it was when we were there. The food left a lot to be desired. Not terrible, but “charred” and “roasted” seemed inappropriate to describe the veggies; more like boiled. Steak was tender and enjoyable. Vegetarian pasta was bland. Apps were great. Will definitely be back. Cocktails and friendly faces, and definitely interested in going deeper into the menu.

    We actually ate here two nights in a row, so I will review both nights. For starters we had a shrimp cocktail and a Caeser salad. These were both excellent. The shrimp cocktail contained five large, chilled shrimp and cocktail sauce with just the right amount of heat. The Caesar salad dressing was perfect and there was lots of parmesan. For entrees I had the filet mignon. It was a very good cut, but definitely undercooked. It comes with nothing (no sides). I also had the rigatoni. It was tasty and quite meaty. My wife had lambchops. She received four chops cooked right. Next day she had the scallops. There were only three, but they were good, and she also liked the included vegetables. We tried different cocktails each night from their specialty menu. They were all good, but a bit pricey. The deserts were the weak spot. The first night I had the red velvet cake. It was more like a cheesecake than a red velvet cake. My wife had vanilla ice cream. It was so freezer burned that she had to send it back. The second night I wanted to try the chocolate cake, but they ran out of it. Our server on Sunday night was inexperienced and a mediocre server. On Monday night our server was just fine. The restaurant was quite noisy on Monday night. It was difficult to have a conversation.

    It's a beautiful place, with good food and a friendly staff, but the waiters need a little more formal training. They are not always sure when to visit the table, how often, or what to do when at the table. I was a trained waiter for 10 years, so I know the ropes.

    The food was good, servers and staff were extremely nice but little things like having to ask for empty appetizer plates and empty glasses to be cleared gave me the impression that our main server wasn’t very experienced. At one point we asked for a glass of Pinot noir - 3 different ones were listed by the glass - and we were told they “were all out”, which seemed odd. Overall good and I’m glad we tried it, but I probably wouldn’t go back unless I was staying in the hotel.

    This was the worst experience we’ve had in some time. The food was delicious, but the service was awful. Genuinely horrendous. We had a 7:15 reservation and weren’t even served a glass of water until 7:40. The meal took hours—we had to beg another waiter just to get our check, and each course (just three) took more than 30 minutes to receive. We didn’t get back to our hotel until after 9:30 despite it being just across the street. The couple sitting next to us was making out and fondling each other throughout our meal, and the staff did nothing to address the issue. We NEVER leave bad reviews—for anyone—but this was truly awful. Despite being offered comps on the bill due to lapses in service, we ultimately were charged for bread, for example, which our waiter brought on the promise of comping it to begin with. We spent hundreds of dollars for what was without question the worst dining experience we’ve ever had.

    What an amazing experience. From the moment we stepped in the restaurant, the staff was welcoming and attentive. The ambiance is top notch, location is absolutely stunning and the brunch menu is amazing. The restaurant and hotel is so beautiful and steeped in history. We are in Atlanta regularly and this was one of the most beautiful locations we’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing and the food was wonderful. A+ all around!!! Thank you!

    It’s inside a lovely hotel. The restaurant is beautiful, but we were there for almost two hours before we got anything to eat. They weren’t even busy. We ordered a shrimp cocktail and a burger with a side salad to share. We sat and watched as table after table that had been seated after us got their food. Our waitress came by twice to tell us that our food was coming out soon, then seemed to disappear altogether. Just as we were getting up to leave, we were served the shrimp cocktail, then soon after the rest. The food and drinks were good, but not good enough to wait two hours for. They comped one of our drinks to make up for the wait.

    Had reservation for a 4 top before a FOX event. Valet parking is provided by the Candler Hotel if dining at the restaurant. We were seated immediately. We were there for bruch and there was an ample selection from the brunch menu to suit all of us. The star presentation plate was the avocado toast plate. Simply gorgeous and delicious. The steak and eggs where both perfectlhy cooked and the three egg omlete allowed you to pick up to four ingredients plus wither cheddar or feta cheese. The coffee is very good or you can opt for a specialty beverage or expresso. Prices were very reasonable and worth it. Staff was courteous and very attentative. Highly recommend if you are looking for a nice place for breakfast of brunch in that are of Atlanta (Mid-town).

    Had breakfast twice since we were staying in hotel. I am use to overpriced food at higher-end hotels but usually the quality of food and service are better. Staff was friendly but only attentive for giving the bill. Have had better eggs at a diner. We were only one of three tables in the restaurant and still had to flag someone down for more coffee.

    The restaurant is inside the Candler Hotel. We enjoyed our initial drinks at the bar. Nicely blended Paloma and Woodford Reserve. We were seated and ordered mussels and potato/leek soup as starters. Both were delicious. The mussels were plenty and cooked with tomato broth. For entrees we had the lamb chops and lobster ravioli with wild mushrooms both dishes were flavorful and filling. Dessert we had creme brulee and it did not disappoint. An added bonus we were taken to "vault" for a mini tour

    Our dinner was memorable thanks to our server James and two excellent meals, rigatoni bolognese and berkshire pork chop, beautiful surroundings, and those scrumptious buttermilk cornbread muffins. Romantic, relaxing, and really well-prepared dishes. By George is one of our Atlanta favorites.

    Excellent restaurant! The only issue is that the streetlight outside has a short which causes it to blink like a disco light. There are no curtains so the restaurant can’t make it stop and it really impacts the experience. They need to talk to the city to fix it.
