We had the best service with Josh that I think I have had in years. I was reminded I need to come more often because the experience was s perfect. I loved the bistro steak

Our order was incomplete when delivered. By the time we received the remaining portion of the order, we were nearly finished with our meal. Also, we made a request to alter the side on one order. The server pushed back on the request. We indicated that this has been done on multiple times during previous visits to Einstein's, the server rudely responded "That doesn't make it right". Substituting fruit in place of greens is hardly a request that deserves this sort of response. Near the end of our meal, we asked for our check as everything seemed to be taking a long time. We finished our meal, each went to the restroom, and then waited even longer before the check was delivered. Very poor service overall.

We were four Ga Tech alums in for homecoming. Picked Einstein’s based on recommendations. Our waiter Joshua was great. We all had shrimp and grits. Very good

Excellent food..but they seemed very confused how to handle our group of 28 even though we had made reservations prior.

The waiter forgot our appetizer that we were going to share until we asked for it after he delivered the food. The grilled Romaine salad was literally swimming in dressing and I think after a few comments agreed to take it back and get a new one. Not sure how it could even leave the kitchen like that. Food was good, but those were some pretty basic mistakes and it wasn't crowded.

Appetizer (fried calamari) arrived cold. One member of the group got their meal a full 15 mins prior to everyone else. Too many other good restaurants in Midtown to go back here.

Great experience as always! The staff are always very friendly and go out of their way to make each experience enjoyable. The food and drinks are always delicious and reasonably priced. Sunday brunch on the patio is my favorite time to visit Einstein’s. Highly recommend!

Service was really slow, took btwn 10-20 min to get a beer, not a cocktail. It doesn't take long to POUR a beer, there was 2 people sitting at the bar, they should have been better prepared

Another great place slowly getting to the point of they don't care. First of all it was Friday night of Pride Weekend. Made a reservation. Place was empty when we arrived ... YET we stood at the check-in counter for 10 minutes before we were even acknowledged then waited another 10 mins before we were actually sat ... outside on an empty patio. Waitress was very nice but slow. Food as just ok. I got the grilled caesar w/steak. Requested med/rare it come well done. The waitress did not come back to check on us for 20 mins and by then I just left the steak. She never asked about our meals. We had to track her down for the check. By this time there were only 3 tables with customers on the patio.

This was by far the worst lunch experience I have had in the midtown area. The food took an hour parts of our order was missing. The parts we received were over cooked. I am very disappointed with this lunch experience. I will not return that is for sure.

It was Saturday night and not busy when we arrived. They were out of an entree that the server did not know about. We ordered mussels as our main dish and they were not fresh and almost half of them did not open, so were not edible. Since no server ever came to check on us when we were eating the meal, we could not tell them of the issue. When she came once everyone's meal was completed, I told her and her response was "I guess it's too late to get you something else". It wasn't even removed from our bill. I usually go to Einsteins for weekend brunch and is usually much better than this experience.

We had a large group of 17 people and they took good care of us. I loved the make your own Bloody Mary bar!
I had the house salad with salmon and it was perfect. The table had a variety of dishes. Eggs Benedict, grilled Caesar Salad, fried green tomatoes, wraps, etc and everyone was happy.
Thank you Einstein’s for making our post Miles for Melanoma brunch so memorable.

Went for a work lunch and we waited 45 minutes for food, the restaurant wasn’t crowded at all and we saw table after table get served. We ended up having to get everything to go because we ran out of time. I’ve gone here before and really loved it, but they missed the mark this last time.

Took a large group to lunch Friday. The weather was fantastic, and the patio experience was great. But, the food took over 35 min to arrive, and everybody remarked that the food was just not that great. My Ban Mi sandwich was just a little beat of meat pressed between a bun, and the grilled asparagus was dry and had no flavor. In my 30 years of living in Atlanta, I've yet to have a decent meal at this restaurant. Our server was friendly, but I would only go back for drinks. The food was very unimpressive and bland.

My reservation was for Tuesday, 9/17 at 6:30. I was tied up in traffric and did not get there until 7:20. I was still accomodated. The food was gormet excellent. The service was comparable. I will go back any time I have the opportunity. The menu is quite varried. Any guest should be able to frind something to his/her liking. The nearby valet parking is also a plus. Exec. Chef Todd Webster and his staff should be proud of their restaurant.

Service was SO slow. They told us that they couldn't put in our order for 30 minutes because the kitchen was backed up and not taking orders. Won't be back anytime soon.

I visited Einstein's with a friend for brunch. I must say that I was impressed with the ambience of the restaurant. It was pretty busy so it did take some time to be waited on but the food and drinks were great! I would definitely return and recommend Einstein's to my friends.

This was one of the worst experiences in a restaurant EVER! We had friends in ATL staying in Midtown, so Einstein's was the perfect spot to meet for brunch, great atmosphere and reputation. The waiter was perfectly nice but that's as good as it got. After waiting 45 minutes after ordering our food, 2 of the 4 orders were missing and the other 2 were flat out wrong. The kitchen was out of several items and it took them an additional 15 minutes to bring out the 2 orders that were missing. In addition, the food was just not that tasty. How can you miss with basic egg dishes/omelets? If you want the answer to that question and a horrible, embarrassing restaurant experience, visit Einstein's. Otherwise, try another brunch spot in Midtown.

Went to Einstein’s for my wife ‘s birthday brunch. The atmosphere and decor were great. We had the avocado toast as an appetizer, which was really good. Service was god as well. However, the coffee was extremely weak, and the scrambled eggs were flat and bland. Not sure if I would go back.
