Cooks & Soldiers brings the cuisine and cultural experience of Spain’s Basque region to the flourishing West Midtown area. The menu is divided into “pintxos tradicionales,” or tapas-like snacks served atop toasted bread; “pinxtos especiales,” or Basque-inspired small plates; “asador” including a variety of wood-grilled fish, meats and vegetables; and a selection of unique and modern desserts. Behind the bar, Cooks & Soldiers offers guests an extensive collection of Basque and Spanish wines, txakoli and ciders, in addition to craft beer and signature cocktails. The cocktail list places a heavy emphasis on gin, offering a seasonal selection of house-infused tonics blended into gin tonics and other popular libations.

It was my girlfriends birthday! Everything went flawlessly. Everyone was super cordial and accommodating. The host staff seated us promptly and we were greeted by our server with a toast of champagne to start the dinner off. Our server was fantastic! Thank you for making it an awesome night.

We took my parents to C&S for Mother's Day "Brunch" and it was a hit from the start! The valet staff was smiling and welcoming. The hostesses were friendly as were all of the wait staff and servers. It was a little loud, but manageable. We enjoyed the tapas style with delicious potatoes bravas, hanger steak, Spanish tortilla, pulpo. Plus, we got the filet mignon and shared that. The cauliflower and broccolini, yum! I loved my vodka lavender themed cocktail, called May Oui. Everything was fresh and bursting with flavor! We will be back soon!

Amazing everything was hot service was excellent. Food was high quality and worth the price. Only thing I would have done different was request a bigger table as me and my bf like to dine and try several things from the menu and the tiny table was challenging to handle all the different things we ordered. Mountain bread amazing, filet mignon amazing.

Wonderful evening to celebrate several college graduations. We had so many of the starters and loved them all. We also ordered the 1k steak and it was great to share. It came sliced and was such a nice way to have an entree with friends. Our non veggie eaters loved the cauliflower side and were shocked how a veggie could taste so good.

We always enjoy going to C&S. This time we took friends with us. We had Brandin as our server and he did a great job. The food we had was delicious. Always enjoy the Bikini, Cod Fritters, and Pulpa. We had the whole branzino with the gem salad. All great. C&S has added new desserts. We shared the Basque Cheesecake and the Lemon Bars. This is a great restaurant to have a few drinks and top notch food. It never disappoints.

Amazing food! We had about 10 different tapas. They brought them out at different times so we could enjoy each of them without being bombarded by dishes. Everything we ordered was amazing! The octopus was incredible, the peas and broccolini were great, I mean everything we got was awesome. Highly recommend! Maybe best tapas in ATL.

I thought that the food was too salty and missing a bit of the elegance that I encountered on previous visits. The service was kind of slow, it seemed that our server was taking care of many tables at same time. It was a nice evening after all, but the version of the restaurant from when it opened was better; however, we may still return.

Cooks & Soldiers offers all that one could want in a restaurant. The food and service is always outstanding. The smoked mushroom pinxtos, grilled artichokes, and filet with romesco verde were amazing! The cocktail and wine selections are top notch, complete with a knowledgeable sommelier, Christopher, who suggests perfect pairings. The vibe of just the right mix of energy and elegance completes the experience. One of my favorites places to celebrate of all time!

Cooks and Soldiers delivers delicious Basque pintxos and entrees in a pleasant setting with lots of solid wine and cocktail options. We can't help but get the smoked mushrooms every time we go. This time we also had the cod fritters, a tuna crudo salad, and crab txangurro. All were excellent; the mushrooms are still our favorite.
