Basque
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 beyond my expectations. The food was amazing to the point I wanted to bow down to the chef. It was full of flavor, each dish was unique. This restaurant is now my favorite. Service was really good as well.

    This has been on of our favorite restaurants for years. Food was not quite as expertly prepared last night as it has been in the past. One dish was cold that should have been warm. Another was much more heavily garlic-flavored than ever before (pan con tomate). However, everything else was very well done. Biggest problem was the noise level - without anything to blunt sound waves, esp on glassed-in patio, it’s insanely loud. We were basically shouting or lip reading and that wasn’t super conducive to conversation. Great spot for a party crowd or celebration. Not so ideal for a family dinner - at least not on a weekend night.

    2nd time visiting cooks, and soldiers… After an initial disappointing meal, we vowed to give it a second chance, but to no avail. Our party of four was seated in the dining room closest to 14th St., where the noise level was so loud you could not hear either the wait staff nor your dining companions. While the small plates were generally tasty, the four of us were seated at a 30 in.² table that was designed for two people. When you’re bringing several plates to the table, there simply was no room to comfortably dine. If you’re looking for a comfortable spot to enjoy good food and conversation with your dining mates, Cooks & Soldiers is definitely not the place. There are too many other good dining options in Atlanta to choose from.

    Had to wait for 30 minutes past our 8:45pm reservation.to be seated, and then the food still came out slowly. We turned away a dish because it came out 20 minutes after we were finished eating. I would not go here again.

    Delicious food, incredible service! This is a team that cares about the entire dining experience. We tried several small plates, each better than the last, but the star of the show was the staff. From the manager providing extra lighting for a table using their cell phones to read the menu, to our super attentive server who made sure that our water glasses, cocktails, and plates were never empty, one of the best dinners I've ever had.

    Decent tapas restaurant, nothing special. Pricing was okay, slightly overpriced, but that is nothing new for tapas. I've certainly had better tapas, but a good place for a night out, and the traditionales dishes were quite good. Very loud, they could certainly use some sound dampening. My biggest issue was that service was quite slow, and we went on a non-busy week night. There was far too much time in between courses, which meant my partner and I were sitting around waiting for food for much of the time. I'd recommend for someone looking for a tapas place in the area, but it wasn't good enough that I'd return again. As a final note, I did not have drinks there, so I cannot comment on the drinking menu, but the cocktails looked quite good.

    One of the absolute best restaurants in Atlanta and the family that owns it is as wonderful as their incredible collection of restaurants and I am excited to hear they are growing! Love this place and cannot speak to the level of food enough - it is absolutely amazing! The staff are impeccable and they are always keeping the menu fresh and have some of the most incredible specials. Love is not a strong enough word to describe what this place means to me and the experiences I've been grateful to have here - but LOVE is accurate.

    From the ambiance to the food it was really good. Our host was kind. Management was very present and helping the flow of service. I think the short coming was the service from our server. We sat for a while before getting served, once we did get a server he didn’t break the menu down to us being new patrons. We overheard the other server greeting all her tables and being very detailed. When we ordered it’s almost like force selling us to get more food.

    For a "Spanish" restaurant you better try another REAL one, food was eatable but NO WAY the advertised authentic Spanish cuisine! Chistorra in a CROISSANT?!!?? "Pulpo a la gallega" - a minuscule octopus WITHOUT potatoes and NOT sliced ??!!?? Gambas al ajillo (the authentic is shrimp with garlic sauce) served on a bed of TOMATO and garlic sauce??!!?? It may go for the average person who never left the US and needs to spent money on average food sold as AUTHENTIC!

    My husband and I chose Cooks and Soldiers for our date night and it did not disappoint! The food was magnificent and drinks superb. Jeanette, our waitress, was incredibly attentive and gracious. Our favorite dish of the evening was the Mejillones- ask for extra bread and a spoon, you won’t regret it :)
