I got a table reservation and when I got there she didn’t have a table for us, our waitress never came we had to find her and she forgot about us all night. We never got the hookah we ordered. In my friend ordered food it took over two hours for his food to come. We couldn’t leave because we already to pod for the food so we had to wait forever for it.

My friends and I came for Brunch on 5/23/2020 I always come here this is my fav place in Atlanta. Due to you only having 3 servers there food took forever, wasn't very tasty. Escobar needs to be fully staffed before having all these customers arrive with out proper staff.

Yeah Escobar isn't bad, but over priced comes to mind. I paid the same price for lunch there, as I did for a four star seafood restaurant.

It’s always a vibe when I’m here. The crab cakes are amazing and very fulfilling. My food always come out in a timely manner. My waitress is always cool and prompt. I never wait too long for seating, overall I always enjoy my experience !

I arrived here, and had a reservation. Not only was my reservation not honored, but I had to wait 30 minutes before I sat down.

The waitresses were rude and unhelpful and even though I made a reservation they sat us in between two couples at a seat that was meant to seat only two. I could barely breathe because both couples were smoking next to us and there was no room to move. We left before we even got any food because we were upset and uncomfortable.

Don’t waste your money and more importantly your time. My reservation was not honored and I waited 45 mins for a table. Then another 45 for our drinks to come. While waiting we watched all of the groceries come through the front door. The food was sub par. I regret going here to celebrate my friends birthday.

The food wasn't flavorful at all. Several people in my group ordered the Shrimp and Grits and we all felt the same way. None of our food came out together and I had to wait an extra 15 minutes just to get to over easy eggs that I placed with my food order. The restrooms were DISGUSTING. If you need photos to verify, I have those as well.

This was more of a club without a dance floor. I could not have a conversation because the music was extremely loud. Their website said “upscale restaurant” and “fine dinning”. I was very over dressed. Had I know everyone would be wearing sneakers and joggers, I would have also. My throat was sore from having to yell during my conversation. Their description is very deceiving.

Reservations should be handled accordingly and more prompt. Instead of waiting 30+ minutes. Also, if you ask anyone who’s not your server for something , they’ll never bring it. Waited 20 minutes after I got my food to eat, for a fork I had to go find myself. Food and music was great though. 🙂

This establishment had people outside charging for parking and while I was inside , my car was towed. The servers standing outside watching all the cars get towed Instead of making an announcement that cars being towed.

I made a 730 reservation and it took them an hour to seat me. They were not very organized. Aside from the wait even though I had a reservation the place was nice. They played great music all night and the drinks were not watered down. The drinks were strong. The decorations and set up was very nice.

This place has a lot of potential. The service was nice, waitress and hostess were pleasant and patient with me. The DJ was whack...for a trendy place DJ should just stick to a well known play list. The only thing I didn't like was the vibe was confusing- didn't know if it was a restaurant or club or cigar bar. We only had drinks but I'd imagine it is difficult to eat with all that was going on. It was VERY smokey and VERY loud. This was a Saturday night between 10p-1a

We were seated immediately which was great. I was right at the entrance where I felt uncomfortable eating while people stood and stared only 5 feet away waiting for the receptionist. I'd rather be seated in a booth. Food and service is awesome!

The customer service and seating here was terrible. For Valentine’s Day, it was not super packed. We got seated on a very small, round “glass” like table on the corner next to the bar and a walking area close to the bathroom. The seating, again, was horrific. This should definitely be better.
Customer service wise, the initial greeter was not the nicest. Our server was friendly, but she only checked in to get our orders, drop it off, and then returned for the check. Again, really nice young lady, but that’s it.
I won’t be returning for sure.

My guest and I came to Escobar for brunch on the 2nd, around 1:15 pm. The space is a little small, so certain places they seat you, don’t have enough room for you to be comfortable. The food was great! We both had the red velvet waffles and I had the shrimp, while he had the chicken tenders. Our waitress was very attentive and delivered great service. We will definitely be back.

We went at 9pm on a Saturday night thinking we were gonna hang back, eat, and drink. WRONG lol...I guess after 6pm they turn into a full on night club. I mean that’s my scene and all but NOT what I expected. We didn’t get to eat because I’m not a fan of eating while people are smoking (not hookah) and twerking right by my table The pictures make this place look way bigger than the what it really is and they make it seem like it’s got a kick back vibe. There is definitely something about this place that make you wanna come back though lol I can’t lie I will return BEFORE 6 so that I can eat and enjoy this place for what it is.

Good vibe, with good food, and music. Being a first time visitor of Atl and the restaurant I was unaware you needed a reservation in order to have a table. I was not happy with the seat I was original placed at was very low and uncomfortable it’s basically like I would’ve had to eat the food on my lap. I requested for another seat but they insisted on reservations only so I created one and they made us wait for 20 mins for the same open table we were seated at once we made the reservation. I just feel that the lady at the front could have been a little more accommodating. For example if a guest prefers a table show them home to make a reservation or ask if it’s their first time don’t assume every one knows. Otherwise I enjoyed myself!
