The service and food are first rate. Staff are polite and helpful, yet not stuffy and boring. Food is always excellent including the chistorra, bikini (grilled cheese), patas bravas and casa klasikova. Great variety and flavors. One of the best in the city.
Haley took great care of our table and was pleasant and engaging. Food was excellent. Will definitely return.
Great food and service i've been several times - great restaurant when you want flavorful food with a beautiful ambiance!
We ate at the bar and the bartender when he wasn't busy, was extremely helpful with drink and food choices. We loved every bite and sip!!
Superb service and everything was cooked perfectly. Fantastic all around, even the valet.
5th time coming here and it is always spectacular. Elliot was great! Manager has stopped by on each occasion. She is very animated and fun! Well done!
Wonderful as always! Kara always makes each visit extraordinarily! My favorite place in Atlanta!
Music as loud as a disco. Beyond during my last visit. Louder each time. Literally as loud as a warehouse disco and staff is proud of it. Lots of interaction with wait staff - bit too much as if its a show (the complimentary long pour aperitif is cool but less so the 10th time) - the noise and interaction and check-ins on some clock timer as if that conversation is more important than that between the diners - just moving past the tipping point for me. You can almost hear the wait staff better as they are standing higher over those seated at the t"No" despite the good food (the "would you recommend to a freind" has no "May'be" options. More than half the menu is food sharing with starter smaller plates - ironic because its just hard to connect with dining mates as the volume is now a bit of an obstacle to time with friends vs adding to a nice decor and atmosphere. Ironically the music is LOWER in the bar than the dining areas, which makes little sense to me.
Food is quite good.
MarkB - we apologize that the noise was such a distraction during your last visit. Thank you for the feedback.
Our meal was wonderful! We had a great dinning experiences. Can't wait to return!
Everything was spectacular!
Thank you for choosing to dine with us CarlyP!
Our group of 3 ordered several tapas and a bottle of wine. Every single item we ordered had fantastic flavors that worked well together and were unique. Our server let me try two different wines before we ordered a bottle so we could pick one we knew we’d like which was very helpful. The experience was fun, the food fantastic, and the wine had a bold earthy flavor (my favorite). I highly recommend this place!
Thank you LinzW11!
Fabulous food! Great service, even with a 3 year old and a 6 year old in the group of 8! Sharing dishes facilitates conversation and trying different options. It was such a fun dinner! (And not as loud as the last time I was there, which made it easier for my parents to hear.)
Thank you for choosing Cooks & Soldiers!
Thank you for sharing this occasion with us!
I have been to C&S a handful of times now, and have been thoroughly impressed with both the food and the service. I have not had a single bite I didn't enjoy, and I've had most items on the menu. I look forward to trying the rest!
Thank you for being such a loyal guest at Cooks & Soldiers!
Good food and service but noise level is so high you can barely hear the person seated across from you. Really detracts from the experience.
TedW - thank you for dining with us at Cooks & Soldiers. We regret that the experience was not perfect. Please share your email address if we can get in touch briefly.
Great food. Highly cost-effective for the quality of food you receive.
Lekshmi - thank you for dining with us at Cooks & Soldiers!
Laura was our server - she's one of the veterans on the team! Every item that she suggested was better than the next...the flavors exploded in one's mouth and each item was more appetizing than the one before it. This is my one of my fav go-to spots for friends visiting from out of town.
MarneiaM - thank you for dining at Cooks & Soldiers! It is wonderful to hear that Laura had such an impact on the experience. We hope to welcome you back again soon!
We had a great time. Amazing cocktails. Food was very good. Would recommend for any occasion.
Thank you, TaylorB!
Blown away by the food and wine. Also had an amazing cocktail. Will return soon.
Thank you for dining with us at Cooks & Soldiers!
The Rabbit Porchetta pinxto was excellent, though the rabbit was a bit chewier than expected. Nice flavor to the Mushroom tapa too, though even chewier. Good coffee flavor too. The Farro and Trout tapas were great. The wait staff was excellent.
Thank you, PaniLover!
Very friendly and efficient staff. The food is absolutely amazing!
It was our pleasure to serve you at Cooks & Soldiers!
Beyond the incredibly tasty and fresh food we were served, the staff went above and beyond in their service and compliments that it led to a night of celebration my friend and I will never forget. Thank you!! Food 10/10 Ambiance 10/10 Service 10/10
Thank you, Rajk!
We were celebrating our 18 year anniversary. Sat in an area we’ve never before sat —- the table just at the entrance/exit to the kitchen. Surprised because there were plenty of open tables and we’d noted it was a special occasion. Justin, our waiter, was familiar with the special occasion and was very conscientious throughout the evening.
JoeC- thank you for celebrating this occasion with us, and we regret that the table selection was less than desirable for you. Would you please share your email address?
Our Server, Elliot, was phenomenal. The food was also incredible!
Thank you, LauraG!
First thing I want to compliment is Anna, our server. I have been to many restaurants and I have never been made to feel to welcome and comfortable, she made us feel as if we were her only table, yet she had several. Her recommendations on food and beverage choices were on point. An incredible experience in an incredible restaurant with an even more incredible server...
EdwardC - happy to know that Anna took such great care of you! We hope to welcome you back again soon.
Of all the restaurants we've visited in ATL, this place gets an A+ for its consistent delivery and customer focus. Firstly, the exceptional quality of their meal and presentation is a given. Perhaps this stems from their limited entree choices, however, this allows meticulous preparation and delivery. Secondly, , there are super sides and tapas choices to complement your entrée in both variety and price range.
Finally, the front of the house, run by their manager, Marissa F., is without a flaw. She has her team running like a well-oiled machine. The Castelluci group had better hold on to this talent for sure!
Thank you culinarycrusader! It was our pleasure to serve you and great to hear that the team took such great care of you!
Meal was great. Like the tapas format to try different flavors. I was disappointed that I could not order piperade as a side item with the bayonne ham. That's a classic in the Basque region, you should not have to order the $48 meal item to get the piperade.
EricL-thank you for this feedback, and we will look to see if we can implement this menu addition!
Wonderful food and wine. The service could’ve been a little better as far as making sure wine and water was refilled but the quality of the food was excellent. We would definitely return when we are in town.
It was our pleasure to serve you, Cindi!
Wasn’t a huge fan of the assortment on the menu compared to other tapas restaurants I’ve been to. My friend and I both had difficulty selecting options that appealed to us.
Thank you for dining at Cooks & Soldiers. We regret that the menu was not enticing for your taste. Please share your email address if we could get in touch briefly.
Fun for a group! Great service and food was excellent. Good size portions.
It was great to have you, Wendy!
My first time at C&S. Loved it. The nicest staff I have ever encountered at a restaurant. Everyone went out of their way to be friendly. The food was excellent. We ordered the whole flounder...yummy! Perfect cocktails. I will be back!
Thank you for choosing to dine with us at Cooks & Soldiers!
Amazing high quality dishes coming out of the kitchen here. Outstanding wine list with in the know producers of the highest quality. I wish they had anything close to this in Los Angeles!
Thank you for choosing to dine at Cooks & Soldiers!
Was in Atlanta for a conference and this place came highly recommended. So glad I checked this place out. Great service, great atmosphere, and food was delicious and unique.
Thank you for choosing Cooks & Soldiers!
This is the second we have eaten there and we had Laura again as our server. She is fantastic. She had us order bikini's and we had to order another round. The only issue we had the second time was the beef was extremely rare. We live on a working cattle farm, so we like our beef rare, but it was extremely rare and even after sending it back, it could have used some additional time.
Service held room for improvement and cocktails were ok. But the food was incredible.
Best service in Atlanta! Every time my wife and I go to Cooks & Soldiers, our experience is phenomenal. The servers and management are always so helpful, attentive, and go above and beyond to make sure we’re having a great experience. We appreciate it so much, and we’ll keep coming back for many years to come.
Thank you for being such loyal guests! We look forward to your next visit!
Great food, cool atmosphere and well priced.
Only idea to improve is print on Menus (descriptions of dishes) is very small making it difficult to read.
Thank you for this feedback, EvonneB!
Just fantastic food. Latoya took great care of us on the service side. Will definitely be back.
Thank you for choosing Cooks & Soldiers!
The food was great as always, and so was our server. We didn't give it 5 stars because there were significant delays between courses. This has not happened before; in fact, in the past we've had so many dishes arriving at the same time that we barely had room on the table -- a great problem to have. This time, we were looking at our watches while waiting for the next course.
Abbydog - apologies for the poor timing during your last dining experience with us. As you know from dining with us in the past this is not the normal pace for us. We are thrilled to know you still enjoyed everything, but hope we have another opportunity to share a better paced evening.
