Our waiter recommended the octopus which was one of their specialty dishes. He described it as plate licking good. It was not good, very fishy tasting and salty. Three of us ordered it and none of us finished it, It was awful. We used to go to Einsteins for brunch. I will not return to Einsteins and will pass on my negative experience on whenever I can.

We arrived around 8:30 PM. We were seated immediately, but it seemed the restaurant was in closing mode by this time. It took a bit longer than expected for food and the service was a bit slower than we would have liked. The food was excellent.

Granted we went for a late dinner following a show but the restaurant was completely dead at 9:30. The food was good but took forever to arrive in a seemingly empty restaurant. Servers were everywhere standing around which made the wait even more frustrating. Additionally, they were out of several of the main course dishes (4) as well as mashed potatoes. Not that I really wanted mashed potatoes but to be out of them is unacceptable for a location near many grocery stores. Especially a location that boast made from scratch items and couldn’t use the excuse they haven’t arrived from the supplier.

This is a great little place that serves very good food. Make sure to take advantage of the valet parking or you will have to find a place to park on the street:) We had the prefix thanksgiving menu and every part of it was phenomenal.

Hats off for providing a quiet and comfortable Thanksgiving meal. I wish there were rolls, that was a disappointment. But the meal was good. I had the salmon, asparagus and risotto. The risotto was bland and I would've liked to opt that out for mac and cheese. But otherwise, it was all great. The pumpkin cheesecake flan was amazing!!

Recently moved to Atlanta and with no family in town decided to eat out .
Bad choice ! This was the absolute worse meal ever no taste, not cooked properly 2 hours later the cook came out and told us no dessert because he was struggling with the crust of a peach cobbler????
How do you mess up Thanksgiving?
We left without finishing our meal :(
Side note before entering - 3 people warned us to run and go eat somewhere else.
Bad days happen totally get it !
Unfortunately ,Thanksgiving should not be the day to be over ambitious with a menu if your especially not able to prepare your pre fixed meal properly!

We have not been back to Einstein’s for brunch since Mother’s Day. This menu was wonderful as compared to MD. It had vegetarian options, traditional breakfast foods and lunch items. I wish Mother’s Day was this menu

I seem to find myself here quite a bit lately. There don't seem to be too many choices in the downtown area for a nice business lunch, but Einstein's certainly never disappoints. The restaurant is actually quite spacious and will accommodate a larger party. It is surprisingly easy to park with their valet service. The food is always delicious. A solid choice for business meals or meeting up with a friend.

We arrived and sat for 15 minutes before a waiter came to the table. He said he'd be back with waters, which took another 15 minutes. He. brought the water and took drink orders. When he returned with the cocktails, we told him we were ready to order. He said ok, then walked away and did not return. We were all dumbfounded. We decided to leave. On the way out, I told the front greeter and she didn't even apologize for the terrible service.

Took over an hour to get our food. Even though we could see other tables turning over several times our waitress when pressed said something vague like others were ahead of us. In the meantime I ordered coffee and then had to ask twice again for cream/sugar and it finally came 15 minutes after coffee which was cold. Friend ordered eggs Benedict. Came with ham and egg on plate minus English muffin. When asked about it server said she checked with kitchen and they were out of muffins. How do you plate and serve this as if the customer won’t notice a third of her meal is missing??? Friend requested toast instead and that took another 10 minutes to get from the kitchen . Waitress blamed all on kitchen and discussed with manager and he never came over to our table. Terrible way to treat customers.

I would recommend they dont get the fried green tomatoes Benedict. Small portion and eggs were just beyond raw. The food was barely lukewarm. I have been several times and was disappointed with this trip. Server was very good

Worst dining experience! It took 45 minutes to get bread and then it was burnt. It took an hour to get our food. We had to ask our waitress multiple times to get our drink orders. We will never return!

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.

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.

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.
