I had a reservation at 8:30 I was there on time and waited for 1hr and 30 mins . I over heard someone say that the manger at the time was only seating people with reservations that was buying a bottle , so when I said I’ll buy a bottle I was sat immediately! I hate that I had this experience coming all the way from Chicago and just wanted a nice place to go with good eats. My reservation was booked 3 days before and we had a table for 7 celebrating a birthday! Highly disappointed. We were set in a section but the food was slightly warm and dry.

Service was poor. They didn’t tell us they only accept cash until the end. Took 45 mins to get 1 drink. We ended up walking out after the table beside us left cuz their service was even more horrible!!

Escobar was terrible. I made a reservation for 11pm. Got there and the host said it would be a hour before we got seated and that I would get a notification when the table was ready We came back at 12 then she said we missed our grace period as if we never came in the first place....would not go back. We never got seated.

Do not go here to eat. Food horrible we even sent back wings. The veggies had no flavor. The vibe was lit. We waited 30 minutes for hookah, and probably as long for our 1st round of drinks. Our waitress looked burnt out, but still kept a smile. Beware alot of smoking involved. Drinks are definitely hefty pricing wise, and mixed drinks were cool. I definitely wouldnt go back as a out of towner, but it is what it is.

Service was terrible did not wipe table took 20 minutes to get a menu then an additional 15 for a drink and food to get to table. I also received a table for my 2 friends and I. I also got hookah and was rushed because another family wanted to sit tables together and wasn’t able to enjoy the hookah and waitress asked multiple times if I was ready for my check while I was still smoking hookah. Didn’t get to enjoy my food drink or business music kept going on and off. Did not enjoy my experience

Your waitresses need help! If it’s overwhelming for them then get a new job or ask for help. you leave your tables and come back 20 minutes later and not explaining nothing. I got bottomless mimosas to only have 2 cups thanks to my waitress

Took over 1 1/2 hours for food to come. They only had 1 waitresses sitting people and waiting tables. Little uncomfortable, started to get crowded with no social distancing.

We made reservations and showed up on time. We were seated and danced until the waiter showed up. We ordered 1 round a drinks and said 45 mins before seeing the waiter again. She then asked what would we like. All four of us put the order in but only 2 came out. She disappears again for an hr to come back and say she cant put our order in. We sat for 2+ hours for 8 drinks a soup and 1 appetizer and was charged $180. The price would be ok to me if we got the whole experience but due to that poor lack of judgment i will never go again. They ruined my whole experience. 🤦🏾‍♀️

We made reservations and got to restaurant and was told they weren’t doing them at the time. Website doesn’t fit the description of the restaurant at all. We didn’t stay 5 min because there was loud aroma of marijuana. It is a nightclub not a restaurant. Would not recommend.

The atmosphere was good and the waiters and the bartenders were great. The only thing that I would say is the shrimp and grits need a little more season.

My waiter was great she did everything she could and the best she could. IG was my birthday and the first thing was they didn’t have my reservation so I was forced to rent a table then they did not have the bottle that I purchased and I waited well over an hour and a half before even being given a complimentary mixed drink. I made the best of my birthday regardless of the poor service and low level of empathy

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.

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. 🙂

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.
