Food was just ok. Kale salad was drenched in dressing and salmon overcooked; mushroom flatbread was cold; risotto balls were good, but overall, average food experience.

We went for lunch. The food was great and the atmosphere was very relaxed. Our waiter was attentive and had a great personality. We cannot wait to return for one of the concerts.

My dad and I went to City Winery Atlanta because Myles Kennedy was performing that night. City Winery Atlanta has an extensive wine menu. The CW burger my dad had was delicious and cooked to order. I had the Springer Mtn. Buttermilk Fired Chicken which was moist, but the skin was fried a bit too long and the rosemary country gravy didn’t pair well with the chicken. If I were to go back, then I would give the Chorizo meatballs or braised duck tacos a try instead.

I wanted to so badly to like this place and probably under the right service it could have been a better experience because the outdoor vibe of the restaurant was awesome but our waitress was TERRIBLE. Very unprofessional. We left after the appetizers instead of grabbing dinner there because we could not stand to have her waiting on our table any longer.

This was our first visit and overall it was pleasant.. We sat out on the patio; the flowers were I'm bloom and smelled great. Nice breeze, out of the sun, it was great. There is a nice wine selection, food was average except the meatballs, they were a not bit above. Service was slow at the beginning but got on track.

I can only rate this restaurant on the ambience as we decided not to stay for lunch. Apparently there was a leak or something that occurred earlier in the day. The restaurant had a horrible smell of paint, mildew and dirty water. I was nauseated by the odor and left after 15 minutes..... Would not recommend!

Our experience was very disappointing. One waiter for lunch time. He told us three waiters call in sick today which was on Friday APRIL 20, 2018. The restaurant was having a staff meeting In private room with management having drinks as this waiter runs around trying to serve the entire restaurant. After we had finished our meal not the waiter but a young female bring our side of asparagus to our table cold. Which we did not eat and was taken off bill. She knew better than to bring that dish to a customer. Is the restaurant kid friendly I would say absolutely not. We had really look forward to coming but was very disappointing. It was my daughter’s Birthday.

This place was really disappointing! I was spending time with my sister, who is visiting from out of town and I took her there. The cheese and meat boards are a complete joke! The cheese had clearly been sitting out and the meat was deli quality. The presentation was also pretty pathetic. The merlot/cab blend was a marginal at best. My sister said her barrel Chardonnay was good but that was the only thing. Our server was inattentive, she would go missing for long periods of time and when she did attend to us she kept yawning without the common courtesy of covering her mouth. I definitively will not be going back there. It was a complete waste of money!

I had such high hopes for this restaurant but was truly disappointed. The place is beautiful but the service was poor. After being seated, we waited for awhile to order and the place was not busy. Also, I noticed a bug in my water and informed the waitress and she had a blank look on her face (no apology). While ordering, we were told not substitutions (fine). However, when the food finally arrived, the food was cold and didn't have any taste (we notice someone else sending back the same dish)?? We were pushing for time for a nearby concert so couldn't wait.

I informed a manager and she simply stated "Thanks for telling me".

The menu is limited and the food wasn't good. Perhaps the wine is better but really overpriced.

Save your money and dine somewhere else!

Awful experience. Waited fir a server for 15 minutes while others around us were served. I ask fir bread or something to munch on as we waited-he brought stale bread chips you would normally use for soup. When the good came out my pasta was so over cooked it was sticking together in clumps.

Won’t EVER go again 👎🏽

The atmosphere was great, but the food and service left a lot to be desired. The service was so-so. The server seemed uninterested and didn't offer to let us know there were specials until asked. Not very engaging and had to pull suggestions out of her. She also forgot beverages and sides. By the time she brought them out (after being reminded) we were almost done with dinner. Don't understand the poor service since we had an early reservation and the place was almost empty.
The food was as bland as the service. It was fresh, but I just couldn't eat it with that blandness. I took it home so I could doctor it up. It was the same for everyone at the table. The best thing was the flatbread. We just got another one so we would have something to eat.
There is nothing worse that a cold chocolate cake. We let that sit so it could warm up a bit so we could actually taste it.
Won't be rushing back the this restaurant anytime soon. Which is a shame because, as I wine head, I had been trying for a while to get there.

The hostesses are extremely rude. They make you feel unwanted from the moment you walk in, sets a great tone for the rest of your experience.

The food is very bland and average. On top of that, all the dishes that we ordered came out slightly cold.

There are so many great restaurants in the area, skip the mediocrity of City Winery.

Cold food, wrong mixed drink, slow service. Our food was literally ice cold, our apps took forever to come out. Food wasn’t super good. Ordered a mix drink and it came out wrong. Also called to push back our reservation from 7 to 7:30pm and they said no, we are completely booked. There we multiple open tables near us until well after 9pm.

I think it’s the worst I town restaurant at this price point . I would go back there to see a show , but never again for dinner. The food was so mediocre, and the service was fine except they couldn’t answer a single question about the food or wine (!) - how ironic.

The food was very good, and the wine was better than you'd normally find at the price point, however it was very expensive, and I don't think the high prices were warranted. I don't regret the decision to go, but I definitely will not be going back.

My date and I got our dinner served 25 minutes apart. His food was cold when it arrived. We waited for my food for 50 minutes (I got a cheese flatbread) and we were charged full price. It wasn’t crowded at all. Our server came to our table once which was when he took our order. Wouldn’t recommend going unless you have a couple of hours to waste

Basic. Over priced with limited options. Was told a special, ordered it then it wasn't available two minutes later. Waitress behind us bashed her manager to her table and loud enough for half the room to hear. Started raining so all hands were on deck to move people inside, causing a back up on drinks. Waited 15 minutes for a single glass of wine. To say the least, it was not the date night we planned and hoped for out of this restaurant.

The place was almost empty. We made reservations so we could have dinner with friends before the show. We purchased show tickets separately so we decided to eat in the restaurant so we could eat together. The show started at 8pm - we had 7pm reservations and got there early. Apparently the performer requested no table service during the show (good call) so the theater was full of people trying to get their orders in by 7:30pm - so I get that the kitchen was slammed - and crazy slow getting stuff out, BUT - the silverware was dirty, water glass was dirty (as was the replacement), the appetizer was forgotten and we thought they were picking the grapes because the wine service was so slow. The service was very friendly - just not very effective. The food, when it finally arrived was very good. And it is a great place to eat before the show. I'm sure we got them on an off night, but I worked in restaurants for years - this was not well oiled machine.

Had a reservation before a show. Traffic was slow and was going to be 5 minutes late. Called to let them know and was on hold so long I walked in with the call still on hold and caught hostess purposely ignoring phone. On Friday place was half full yet still was seated at a crappy table and squeezed between the few other customers. Ordered apps and dinner only to have all delivered simultaneously. Food was great. Workers are fast food rejects.

We went to the restaurant only. My mom and I came here because we enjoy trying new wines. We got the flight of 4 2oz wines from their winery for $10. We chose "fresh and fruity whites" and they were all delicious.

We also went with their lunch option of half a sandwich and a side salad. Let me say first that I really do not like salads at all... However, their house salad was the best salad I have ever had in my life and I find myself craving it from time to time. I got the turkey sandwich too and it was tasty and filling. This will definitely be at the top of my list when feeling wine-y!

Had the worst food. Food was cold (sent it back and it came back cool as in still cold.) The chicken was taste less. The fries were a replica of drum sticks (DRUMLINE 3 anyone?) . Hard and cold. We barely ate anything and still had a $50 bill. The waitress was very nice tho. You don't understand these fries had sharp edges. I poked a hole in the chicken with the fries. ALSO THE CORNBREAD (that was shaped like a biscuit, had the consistency of packed sand, pretending to be a Frisbee ) HAD MOLD ON IT! Did y'all chef call out tonight? The waitress took it away before I can get footage!
