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.

Food was fantastic even though it was a limited menu due to limited dine in service. This is a tapas restaurant serving small plates with a few larger shareable items that may take a little longer to cook. Jack was our server and he was amazing!

I looooved your place and I keep going back but my last two visits weren’t great when it came to food. The staff is beyond amazing but everything that I’ve gotten the last two visits was burned or flavorless. The octopus was so much better a few months back and I couldn’t even finish the shrimp because it tasted like it was boiled. I love the place but I might not come back for a minute. By the way... your staff is truly amazing. P

I heard so many positive things about Cooks and Soldiers but until you actually experience it in person, you won’t appreciate it. The 2lb. Rib eye steak is amazing and well worth the wait. Some of their cheeses are off the beaten path and exceptional. The attention to texture, as much as blending flavors is executed extremely well. I also highly recommend the “isolation” cocktail. In spite of the effects of the pandemic, their wine list by the glass is well chosen to pair with the items on the menu. Their service was wonderful without being “too attentive”. I highly encourage consulting with their sommelier if you are unsure of a pairing. He is knowledgeable and approachable.

We had some exceptional food. The coal roasted mushroom dish and roasted cauliflower were out of this world. Able to dine at one of the few outdoor tables which we so appreciated. Service was a little slow although our waiter was very nice. Not his fault that a French 75 was made with flat and warm sparkling wine. They did comp a replacement.

Being new to Atlanta we found ourselves in the middle of the city on a late Saturday afternoon and not really sure where to eat dinner. Yelp told us Cooks and Soldiers was a few blocks away and Open Table told us we could get in for an early dinner. What a wonderful surprise! Davis’ help through the menu was invaluable and his suggestions were spot on. He orchestrated the 4 dishes we chose, I Eric o Albonigas, Bikini, Chistorra in a Blanket and a shrimp dish. Out of this world! The service was over the top - thanks Davis. Great place we can’t wait to experience again!
