The servise and drinks were fantastic! The food was subpar. We ordered the steak, fish and pork tenderloin for the table as well as an assortment of tapas. The tapas were decent, the bikini sandwich was the best of the tapas. The steak was very tough and lacking flavor. The fish was not fresh and was very fishy and off putting. The pork tenderloin was good but nothing special. Dissapointing!

OUTSTANDING (6 stars if possible)
Seen it featured on one of the episodes of “queer eye” on Netflix.
Decided to try it on a trip to Atlanta for a friend’s birthday and the experience was incredible, starting with the service, our waitress was extremely friendly and charming plus we got complimentary champagne for a birthday toast and dessert on the house, you can not ask for more. The ambiance is just perfect, small plates with soul and flavorful, their cocktails are just on point. BEST GRILLED CHEESE (Bikini on the menu) that ever tried. We would definitely come back.
Thank you for this high praise Guayodesign! Thank you for choosing us during your visit to Atlanta and Happy Birthday again to your friend. We hope you can join us again!
A fantastic place. I've eaten in the dining room but the best place is absolutely at the bar. The bartenders are exceptional people and they really make the dining experience something unique and very special. Ask for Caitlin, she mixes amazing cocktails and she's awesome regarding the menu! Love this place!
Thank you for dining at Cooks & Soldiers! It's great to hear that Caitlin has such a positive impact on your experience.
The food was great. The service was OUTSTANDING!
Thank you WhitneyL! IT was our pleasure to serve you!
Most of the food tasted like it was soaked in lighter fluid.
Excellent food and service.
Like the fact that Tapas are for vegy and meat lovers.
Thank you for dining at Cooks & Soldiers LeonH!
Every time I come to Atlanta I make it a point to eat here. I travel the world for a living and have had the chance to experience many different cuisines from many top rated restaurants and have to say this is one of my favorite places for Tapas and Spanish wines. Don’t hesitate to eat here. You will not be disappointed. Keep up the fantastic work C & S.
Thank you for joining us! We are proud to be your home away from home!
What a great place. The atmosphere was so electrifying. The service was top notch and the food was fabulous.
Thank you for this kind feedback James! We hope to serve you again.
Amazing ! I will be back
One of the most delicious restaurants in Atlanta. We have eaten here three times. All meals were so yummy and the service is friendly and professional. Food is very distinct and prepared with a delicious wood fired taste. Very fresh and one of a kind Basque Spanish influence. Do not bring anyone who is a picky eater! All dishes have so many ingredients they would probably be intimidated.
Thank you for dining with us Susan - it has been a pleasure to serve you and we look forward to welcoming you back to Cooks & Soldiers!
The way the ratings on opentable work, I'd land at a 3 overall, but the food was so frustratingly disappointing that I had to drop to a 2.
While the quality of ingredients was good, and the technique was consistently executed well (with one big exception described below) the flavors were uniformly far too sweet - all so laden with jam or spiced honey that no other flavors really came through - and with such a heavy hand in the warm spices, especially cinnamon, that we had awful palate fatigue halfway through the meal. I literally stopped eating half way into the meal because the cloying richness had gotten overwhelming. Dishes uniformly lacked that balance of richness with acid, saltines, and brightness that I'd expect from great basque-style bites.
Worse, the foie gras toasts were quite stale, as if they'd been toasted hours before and left to sit - even if the liver itself was fresh and clean tasting. And most tragically, the lobster fideos were served swimming in such a deep pool of broth that all texture was quickly lost, and there was no hope of ever having developed any soccarat nor the characteristic intensity of flavor that comes from the concentration of cooking liquid in really good fideua. Fideua is one of my wife's favorite dishes and it was deeply disappointing. I would have sent it back - or at least asked if it was intentional that the dish was served as a soup - but my very young daughter loved the broth so I was chagrined to send it away.
In the end maybe my expectations were too high after hearing so much hype online and in magazines, and getting rave recommendations from co workers and friends; but, if this is the best Atlanta can do then our city still has (many) miles to go before we're a world class food town. I'd hoped to leave with a new favorite restaurant but honestly I doubt I'll ever bother to go back.
Da6d, We apologize that we were unable to deliver an exceptional experience and would hate for this to be your lasting impression of our restaurant. Please share your email address if you would be willing to connect briefly about your evening.
Food was fantastic and service was awesome!! Jack was super attentive. Bottomless Mimosas!!!
Thank you for sharing Mother's Day with us DeborahL!
Our server Jack was awesome and was a large part of the great experience we had! Will definitely as for Jack every time we go.
Thank you for sharing this high praise Patrick! It is great to know that Jack had such an impact on your meal!
Wonderful place for Mother's Day lunch with our family ranging from 7 months old to 70 years old. The service is fantastic and the food is even better!
Thank you sharing the holiday with us DougD! It was our pleasure to serve your family.
Staff was terrific. Very friendly and attentive service. Food was excellent and fresh. Went for Mother’s Day brunch and it got busy. The style and appearance of the restaurant added to the experience. Will definitely return soon for dinner.
Paincane - thank you for sharing this special occasion with us! We look forward to welcoming you for dinner soon.
We found this place quite interesting. There aren't many options for guests who do not eat meat as a main course. The whole fish that they were offering was mackerel. IF I was going to pay $50-60 for a whole fish I would much rather it be a better type of fish as mackerel is more of a lower-end fish. The food was overall very delicious; however, there weren't many options for individuals who don't eat meat or pork.
JonathanB - thank you for dining at Cooks & Soldiers. We regret to read that we failed to deliver an exceptional experience for you. We do have a robust Vegetarian menu, and hopefully you were able to take a look at those items. I understand you were looking for a better main course option, and hopefully we have the opportunity to serve you again and our Chef can use his creativity to create a dish appealing for you.
A very good and tasty evening. Our waiter Jack Sparrow was terrific. The quieter room made such a difference in being able to hear. We loved sharing so many dishes and different flavors. Job well done.
Thank you for dining at Cooks & Soldiers!
Party of 10 for my husband’s birthday. We had an amazing time...cocktails at the bar were inventive and delicious...we were seated in a fun area and the place was packed...great vibe. The food was simply outstanding, especially the grilled cheese starter, smoked salmon, iberico ham, even the salad.
ATLaura - thank you for spending this occasion with us at Cooks & Soldiers! We are thrilled to know your husband enjoyed his birthday celebration!
The food and ambiance were amazing. The pork dishes were our favorite, but we also loved the carrots, fries, and potatoes.
Thank you for dining with us RobD!
Our server, Travis, was absolutely amazing and the food (as always) was SO good. If you haven’t been here before go here for your next date night. You won’t regret it!
Thank you for dining with us LauraH!
Luis makes us feel so special. Always a memorable experience. Perfectly flavored food as always. Great wine recommendation as always. Our favorite restaurant!
DesiUncleSam - thank you for dining with us again at Cooks & Soldiers!
Best restaurant in Atlanta.
Thank you for this high praise Gsag!
The food at Cooks & Soldiers was fantastic. The staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable. We had the olives, salad, chorizo omelette, Barbacoa, grilled cheese, octopus, and meatballs and thought it was all so good. Overall a great atmosphere, well organized, and excellent food. My wife and I really enjoyed the experience and look forward to going again!
It was our pleasure to serve you jrs009!
We had an amazing time at Cooks & Soldiers - our server was so wonderful and the food was outstanding! If I lived in Atlanta I’d be here as often as possible. We recommend the scallops and farrow tapas!
Thank you for dining at Cooks & Soldiers!
This was our first time. From the moment we were seated to ordering drinks to menu selection to the tapas dishes, all was excellent. We will be back again.
Thank you for dining at Cooks & Soldiers!
We've booked several special occasions here now - each and every one was perfect. The food is exquisite - every dish comes out and it is clear that every single detail was carefully considered when designing and preparing it. We had an all vegetarian menu (just ask and they'll hand you one!); try the eggplant in coconut broth - never has a broth tasted better. If you don't like carrots, try theirs. Trust me. You'll change your mind very quickly. Oh - don't forget the dessert - their doughnuts are spiced to perfection (yes, spiced!), and their Basque cake will show you why the extra calories are worth it. We have our favorite spots everywhere we visit - cooks and solders is our Atlanta spot.
KarlG - thank you for sharing this special occasion with us at Cooks & Soldiers! It has been our pleasure to serve you and we look forward to many more evenings together!
I love coming to Cooks & Soldiers. Every time the food is awesome and the service is great!! We loved the pintxos happy hour and Laura was awesome as usual!
Thank you for dining with us AliaC!

Thank you for dining with us Eneida!
My favorite restaurant in Atlanta
Thank you AlexW!
Overall it wasn’t very good. Sunday evening and not that busy - we are seated near the service station and the main entrance into the dining room. Plenty of room across the restaurant. Food was not consistent. Some hot some cold. Nothing stood out as great - it was all ok. Not a do over when there are so many really great ATl restaurants.
DinerEaters - thank you for choosing to dine at Cooks & Soldiers. We regret to see that we failed to deliver sincere hospitality and a delicious dining experience. We would love the opportunity to connect if you would be open to it. Please share your email address. Thank you!
High energy place. Our server made two poor menu recommendations (lobster roll and doughnuts). Neither were very good. Certainly not as good as she finds them to be. She also took our order and just as I was asking about a wine she left. I had to flag her down to get a wine order in before the food arrived. So on to the food. There were two things that popped up a lot by other reviewers. One is the meatballs. The other the grilled cheese. Both were just okay. The meatball is chunky and hard. Not was I was expecting. The grilled cheese was honestly no better than Waffle House.
RoswellDiner, Thank you for choosing Cooks & Soldiers. It appears we missed the opportunity on multiple occasions to deliver sincere hospitality and to help you navigate our menu. Please let me know if you would be open to a brief discussion by sharing your email address. Thank you!
We've been to Cooks and Soldiers many times and it is always a great experience. It is usually a bit loud, but this visit the hostess specifically put my wife and I in a spot that was less noisy so we could hear each other. Great service!
Thank you ChrisM for your loyalty to Cooks & Soldiers! We have enjoyed the opportunity to serve you!
Fantastic service. Great food! Lots of choices and fun to share.
Thank you for dining with us DamonN!
We enjoyed everything!
Thank you for choosing Cooks & Soldiers!
Great selection of interesting dishes. Good for vegetarian in the group and outdoor patio was very nice on the evening we visited.
Thank you FunSpot! It was our pleasure to serve you!
Had a wonderful experience! Are out on the terrace. 10/10 recommend!
Love this place. One of my faves! Great food, great service! Love the tapas. Best octopus and the scallops are stellar!
Thank you for being such a loyal guest at Cooks & Soldiers!
The bar was comfortable and easy to be. The restaurant is a good space - you have to explore the menu. The pula (octopus) promised a lot but was overdone, the jamon iberico was good but a little lacking in flavor. Based on the reviews, I think that we hit an off night.
MartiK - Thank you for dining with us at Cooks & Soldiers. We regret that some of the menu items were not exactly to your liking. We would love to discuss briefly if you would be willing? Please share your email address if we can touch base. Thank you!
