Staff wasn’t very attentive. Food was not to my liking. Pork cheek croquettes were undercooked.
Terrific tapas in a fun setting - great for date night or girls night out. Service was very on point and food came out timely. Would go back and recommend to friends. Loved the location as well and convenient complimentary parking under Cottonwood Condos. Short walk to Cooks and Soldiers. Nice looking separate bar area as well. This would be a fun spot to grab a drink and tapas at the bar. Octopus was good, as well as patatas bravas and lamb chop. Ensalada verde and the smoked mushroom was tasty. Did not care for the apple compote dessert - it was cold thinly sliced apples on cream inside a little breaded dessert cup. Not what we were expecting but the berries and pastry were delish!
Celebrated a birthday on a girls trip. Alex was our server and she was fantastic! The whole staff was so nice from the time we walked in until the time we left. Highly recommend!! The food was super flavorful, well presented and Alex walked us through the whole menu (which was extremely appreciated).
We felt very welcomed by our waiter and other staff and genuinely appreciate a well done anniversary dinner!
Celebrating anniversary. Staff was very kind and brought champagne and a dish for us. Truly felt like they wanted to help us celebrate.
Excellent food and specialty cocktails. Love the option and separation between main dining and bar area. The staff was very accommodating.
I have to say that I am REALLY big on customer service and even bigger on good, quality food. Cooks & Soldiers definitely exceeded my expectations! From the moment we stepped into the door, we were greeted respectfully by the hostesses. Our server, William, offered wonderful customer service and recommendations. The staff even went so far as to offer to take our pictures since they saw us taking selfies. The vibe was casual and modern and the ambiance was beautiful. The crowd was lively...the noise level indoors was a bit loud, but that was because they were playing (good) music and there was a significant crowd. I'd recommend sitting outside for a quieter dining experience. Now for the food...everything we ordered was delicious! I can definitely recommend the Smoked Mushrooms, the Bikini, the Gambas and Arroz Caldoso. For dessert, we tried the apple tart (which was just okay) and the Smoked Meyer Lemon Bar which was TART AF, but very delicious! LOL It's a must if you like lemons. We will definitely be back!
Everything was awesome!!!
Our server Alex was amazing! Good was great! This is my favorite tapas restaurant in Atl now.
Restaurant came highly recommended but I was disappointed. I decided to try it even though I don’t like tapas, and I still have the same stance —- I do not like tapas. Ordered 5 small plates and only two were to our pleasing. And one of those (grilled cheese) I can make at home. Great atmosphere, though!! Just needs better food. I’m not sure when I will return but maybe I’ll try steak next time.

I've enjoyed dinner at Cooks many times, and have always gone with a group to feast on tons of pintxos (so much fun). This time we went whole fish and a large steak for the table and it was next level out of this world. Service was the best, as always.

Everything was very ok. Over-hyped, server seemed bored. Sold out of two things we ordered at 7:15. We left after appetizers, maybe it was a bad day :/

Overall very good place to share tapas. The best tapas are definitely the Gamba (suggest to order more bread because the sauce is amazing); the bikini (grilled cheese) and the croissant!!!! Meatballs are also a good option. For dessert, the cheesecake, the lemon drop is extremely sour. Service is great, food comes out quick, and there is complimentary valet. For the cocktail I tired the Oui and was very good!!

It was my birthday. I had previously been to one of their sister restaurants and was underwhelmed. Boy did they redeem the previous experience.
The food was amazing: octopus, fois gras and a few other tapas. But the crown of the evening was the steak for 2...which actually fed 3 of us. Our server Blair was warm & attentive. Couldn't have asked for a better birthday meal.
CharlesN, thank you for choosing to celebrate with us at Cooks & Soldiers! We are thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed your meal with Blair and hope to have the chance to serve you again soon.

Literally always amazing. Food is consistently spectacular. The service is always on point. Ambiance great for a date. I go often.
Thank you for supporting Cooks & Soldiers! We are so glad to hear every meal with us has been wonderful and hope to have the chance to serve you again soon.
Scrumptious food, yummy and very well prepared pintxos, great decor and service. Food is perhaps a tad rich (the pigs in a blanket are a meal in itself, but the croissants are SO good they're hard to resist). Noise level a little loud. Not that cheap, but well worth it! An Atlanta highlight for sure.

Amazing. Food? To die for. Service? Fantastic!!!
Thank you for choosing Cooks & Soldiers!
It was my husband and I first time and server explained menu very well, restaurant menu is set up for sharing many items.
We loved how all the food was paired very consciously for the best flavor combinations.
Thank you for giving Cooks & Soldiers a try! We are so glad you had a wonderful meal with us and hope to have the chance to serve you again soon.
Honestly this place was the biggest waste of money. The grilled vegetables were cold and undercooked. The bikini sandwich was made on the lowest quality white bread and dripping with grease. I am really unhappy I paid money for such low quality food.
mmmsssss, thank you for dining at Cooks & Soldiers. We regret that the experience did not meet your expectations. We would love to connect directly to hear some additional feedback on what could have been better. Please share your email address if you would be willing to get in touch. Thank you!

Amazing evening thanks to the wonderful staff and the chefs in the kitchen preparing such flavorful dishes. My favorite was the dry aged ribeye and the charcuterie with iberico ham and chorizo. Octopus was also memorably good as well as the pork cheek croquettes!

Went for birthday dinner and the staff was amazing. Enoch is an amazing representative of the restaurant. Thank you!
Lala, thank you for celebrating with us! We are so glad you had a wonderful time with Enoch and hope to have the chance to serve you again soon.
Delicious food, good service. Food took a very long time, but our server Travis brought us a little grilled cheese deliciousness to snack on to hold us over. My friend that was visiting ATL that I brought with me said it was the best meal she’s ever had at a restaurant!
Thank you for choosing Cooks & Soldiers! We are so glad that despite the long wait time you had a wonderful meal with us. We hope to have the chance to serve you again soon.
We didn’t know about the valet parking beforehand, and after spending 25 minutes driving twice around the block in heavy traffic we had to idle on the street while one of darted in to ask where to park. Valet is available in the Cottonwood garage; there is no realistic parking otherwise.
Every course was divine, especially the smoked mushrooms and the”Bikini” toasts with Iberian ham. The patatas brava were a bit salty for my taste, but came drizzled in a fantastic sauce that raised them above all other versions I’ve had. We had six of the small plates, which was just right for two. Both our cocktails were somewhat stern—on their own they came across as too sour to be “balanced,” but once the food started arriving, they were a delightful pairing. Dessert was the “burnt” cheesecake. I wouldn’t care if I never tasted cheesecake again but this was what the server recommended, and it was great. Fluffy and creamy, not dense at all.
The noise level was uncomfortably high, and sustained conversation would have been impossible, so it’s not what I would call “romantic,” though the lighting is attractively dim.
KingBee, thank you for choosing Cooks & Soldiers. We apologize if there was any confusion regarding parking, we do have signs outside of the garage and have this information listed on our website! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the rest of your meal and all of the dishes you tried!
