The food was DELICIOUS and atmosphere was great for a business lunch. My only negative feedback is that I wish the music volume was a little lower.

It took over 40 minutes to get our food. Had to enquire about it since no explanation was given. Also had to ask for refills more than once. When the food finally arrived, it was cold. Very disappointing.

The food was decent overall. Three people of my seven party party ordered red meat, all of which were overcooked. It was rather loud in my opinion as well. Food service was borderline slow.

We tried the classic eggs benedict and ixtapa, both of which were pretty good. Had some OJ and coffee that were decent too. Nice staff and ambience.

Chicken strips were good! I ordered cast iron lasagna and it was terrible. It literally had two flat noodles worst lasagna I've ever had not to mention it was like 18.00. Relly disappointed. My husband ordered the steak and was also disappointed. Dont waste your money unless your getting chicken strips or a burger.

For Valentine’s Day I had a reservation and upon arrival they asked if a high rise was okay without even checking me in for my reservation. I politely said no and that I would like a booth or nicer table (which we didn’t mind if we had to wait)and we were rushed a to a table of five where it just felt as if we weren’t cared about I had to hunch over to talk to my boyfriend. The waitress was trying to accommodate, but wasn’t up to date or knowledgeable on their menu and didn’t check in on us. I really wanted to have a great time and it just was a series of unfortunate events that we felt as if we had to keep trying to brush off.

Poor service. Took almost an hour to get our order (think the server forgot to put it in), and another 25 to get dessert. Table next to us didn't get their appetizer until about 5 min after their main course. Reserved a table for Valentine's day as they advertised a special menu, but definitely not a Valentine's mood (loud music and multiple tv's blaring). Food was good when it finally arrived, but by that point we had decided we will not be coming back.

Everything was great except for 2/10 guest who ordered short ribs. The portion sizes were extremely small. This was extremely odd compared to the rest of the parties portion, and also, it was under the “large plates” menu.

My birthday. 10 of us. Made lunch reservation night before. A little nervous due to mixed reviews. No parking per se but complementary valet next door. They were ready for us early. Connor was excellent taking care of us. Everyone’s food was very good and fast coming out—Service was very good. Music was a little louder than I’d like but I’m a crotchety old guy. Will absolutely go back. If I have to nitpick, there was minor confusion delivering the correct meal to the correct person. There was no problem with us bringing our own birthday cake, and they cheerfully supplied plates, napkins and silverware—even a lighter for the candle. Thanks, Einsteins. Truly a pleasure.

Looked forward to visit a spot that I have great memories from 20 years ago. It wasn't the same. Service was very slow. We were sat in the bar area with a solo singer. At times the volume was too loud. Appetizer was cold (Octopus) by the time it made it to our table. My Fried Chicken was tasty, but the greens and mashed potatoes were cold. The Pork Belly dish was too sweet. I hoped this would be a good to spot since my best friend just moved to ATL and lives close by. It will not.

Crackling fire, delicious food and warm welcome. Two older girl friends decided on the spur of the moment to lunch in midtown but it was after 2:30 when we showed up at Einstein’s. We were welcomed graciously and shown to a table near the fireplace in the seating area near the bar where we were able to chat in quiet surroundings. The server’s suggestions for lunch were a really inspired mix of traditional and exotic cuisines. Excellent wine by the glass at a reasonable price. This neighborhood institution just gets better with time.

The atmosphere was delightful and the food was okay but not anything exceptional. The lasagna was overcooked and stuck to the pan. The shrimp and grits were not very flavorful.
