Went for brunch before the Falcons game. Sat down a few minutes before 11am and ordered drinks a few minutes later. Took at least 20 minutes for those to come out. A few people in our party showed up late, around 11:30, and they didn’t get drinks for another 15 minutes and had to wait until noon to order food. The food was great but the service was incredibly slow.

Menu changes eliminated many of the group’s favorites. Restaurant was not busy but getting food was extremely slow. Servers were great. I think the problem was with the kitchen.

Very friendly and nice staff. Wait person was very helpful with menu selections. She was right on top of our service and made sure we had everything. The fried chicken was one of the best I’ve ever tasted. Can’t wait to go back when I return to Atlanta.

Went for Thanksgiving with my parents and the prix fix menu had options for each course which was nice but the food was bad and they ran out of the one dessert that was giving us hope. It might've had to do with it being a holiday and not having the normal chefs, but honestly I have never been so disappointed by the food in a restaurant in Atlanta. And it was expensive! $40/person! The ambiance is cool, very eclectic, seems like a cool place to get drinks with friends, but definitely not Thanksgiving dinner.

Was a set menu and totally not worth the $45 price tag. Service was beyond slow and it was not even busy. Server was nice though. Way too over priced. Might have been better if we could have ordered off the regular menu.

Green omelette was delish! Highly recommend! If you’re not from Georgia and you go on a Sunday, don’t go for brunch until after 12:30 because they can’t serve alcohol until then. Rookie mistake! Didn’t get my mimosa but the food was great and super quick!

This place was open on Christmas Day so me and two friends came to eat. The food was great as was the atmosphere. It wasn't too crowded. My only complaint, it was a fixed menu. They offered a 3 course meal (salad, a meat item and desert) at a cost of $45 pr/person. We had two glasses of house wine each, no appetizers. The bill came to $65 pr/person or $195 for the three of us plus valet parking. That was a very expensive!!!

I might recommend Einstein's for regular meals but defiantly not for Holiday meals. Next year we'll cook at home, pot-luck or something and save the cash.

Although we came in expecting brunch, the all-day Christmas dinner menu with fixed price meal sets was very good! But it was a tad expensive $45/person with starter, entree and dessert (no drink). Nice atmosphere and kind, welcoming staff! We want to come back and try their traditional brunch fare!

We dined at Einstein's to celebrate our son's graduation. We were a party of six and were seated very promptly. Our waiter was friendly and made good suggestions with regard to drinks and food. The ambiance is a little dated, but the food is very good. It is definitely a good brunch location, although mid-town has many very good dining options.

Food and prices were decent, unfortunately food took nearly one hour to come out and half of the dishes were no longer hot, but room temperature. The food itself was good, but not worth the wait and some of the food definitely not as good lukewarm.

Our service was terrible. It took 10 minutes to place our order and was at least 20 minutes before it came out, with no visit from our waitress. One guest did not get her meal that she ordered, and we had to ask for the food from a separate waiter because we had not seen our waitress for so long. Her food came out one item at a time, not as a plate as she had ordered. Our glasses were empty for much of the meal. The food was decent, but not worth the poor service.

Both a hit and a miss. Burger was okay and cold but salad was very creative and tasty. Chef came out and talked to us and wasn't the best with people skills, and came off a little rude. We waited for an hour and a half before our food came out. Waiter was nice but there was definitely some issues with things showing up on our tabs that we didn't order. Overall it could be a very great place but they just missed the mark in my book.
