Estrella – “star” in Spanish – evokes the classic style of 1950s Art Deco vibes of Miami and the modernity of present-day Yucatan, Mexico
An open-air bar, umbrella seating in the summer and a cozy covered space in the wintertime with and a lush list of bubbly and classic Latin cocktails (think Hemingway daiquiris and pisco sours) combine with a Latin American-inspired menu from Chef Roberto Solis, one of Mexico’s most celebrated chefs. Solis brings the flavors of the Yucatan to Estrella via a menu that highlights Latin flavors, such as ceviche, cochinita spring rolls and seasonal fish, meat and vegetables.
Here under the sun and stars, sink into our soft seating, soak up our Latin strains and order something refreshing from our gin & tonic cart. View Atlanta’s skyline atop Bazati from the city’s perfect perch on the Beltline's Eastside Trail.

Most of the seating is on the deck. It was busy and the staff was learning on the fly. All that considered, the food was outstanding.

The rooftop deck is stylish and provides a great view of the Beltline and midtown. Unfortunately, we visited on a windy day and needed to sit inside. The small room has tall ceilings and tile floors, with nothing to absorb sound. As such, it was extremely noisy and difficult to hear each other over our small table. The interior was cute and bright, though.

The worst part of the meal was the service. Our server, who had curly hair and a tattoo behind her ear, was surly from start to finish. When we said we were ready to order she made an exasperated expression. When we said we had a few questions, she started looking around, as though trying to find someone else to relieve her. The menu is tiny, just six items. A friend asked to have the cilantro left off of his dish as he is one of many who cannot stand the taste. The server said that she would ask, but they do not like to make substitutions because they consider their dishes whole, and to take something away would mean the dish is not complete. It's not like he asked for a special order item. He just asked to have something that a lot of people hate left out.

The first 2 entrees took a very long time to come out. Then, they sat on our table and got cold as we waited at least ten minutes for the third person's entree to come out. Nobody ever followed up on the food, no apology for the wait. We were not offered more drinks until we had finished the entrees.

The food was not great, either. I had chilaquiles, which I've eaten all over Mexico and Atlanta. The sauce was bland and metallic. There was barely any crema or cotija cheese. I thought they had forgotten to add it until I found a small splash of crema on a couple of chips. The meat, pork belly, was undercooked, just a blob of fat, with no crispiness or browning. I ordered an egg on top, and it was overcooked, with a soft-ish but by no means runny egg. That is not how to make chilaquiles.

I might be back for rooftop drinks, but no way I'd eat here again.

Location is best feature, nice rooftop cafe overlooking belt line. Cool winter evening, so outdoor deck was unusable. Heaters not effective. Could use better system and enclosure.

We were early seating, and yet both the venison and lobster main plates were out, both the most interesting items on he menu. Service was friendly, but slow. Drinks good.

We may try it again, and give it a second try, but not a super experience for the $.

We had a great time on Valentine’s Day. The food was very good, the portions are not huge but the flavors are great. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and the bar and crafted us some unique cocktails. The chocolate tart for dessert was amazing with an espresso with a little liquer in it! Definitely recommended. We ate inside due to it being a bit windy and cool but the patio looks beautiful.

Our server (and bartender) Jessica was outstanding and knowledgeable. The only reason why I’m giving 4 stars for food is because no longer serve the lobster roll and the oyster taco wasn’t available.

We showed up on time for an 11:30am reservation (which we had made weeks in advance) only to be told they don’t open until noon. No one took the effort to understand or rectify the situation - they just complained about the mess the previous party made and told us we could wait if we wanted. I wouldn’t put too much stake in planning ahead, seems like this place is better suited for the spontaneous.

The place has a great roof view and very tasty food and drinks, plus latin music that make it unic in that area.
Unfortunately service is very bad and drinks over priced.
I was there on a Sunday for brunch, I made a reservation but table wasn't ready so they told us to sit by the bar, but then we saw an empty table, but it took more than 15 mts for a server to come to us, we missed the brunch for their poor service.

Great location and view. Food was good, but a little overpriced for what you get (like the black bean dip is great, but there's barely enough to scrape up with the few pork skins you get - black beans don't cost anything - put twice as much on the plate). My boyfriend loved his chicken with rice, but when I tasted it, the rice was crunchy. The venison tacos are a great idea, but they are a bit 1 note - they need a squeeze of lime or some added acid. Service is attentive and friendly.

Tried a lot of small plates for a table of 6. The food was inconsistent. Some items were better than others. The kitchen has a very, very hand when it comes to salt. We sent back 2 dishes because they were uneatable. The server and manager were both very apologetic, agreed with us and quickly remedied the situation. That said, none of the dishes we tried would have us running back to this place to cure a strong food urge. The interior decor is simple but very comfortable. The outside seating with a view of the midtown Skyline is where it's at. Definitely a place we'd visit again when looking for a spot to eat off the ATL Beltline.

You're definitely paying for the ambiance here, which overlooks the Beltline. Drinks were great, as was service, but dishes are small. Maybe better for appetizers than a "meal." There's also no space to check in with the hostess upon entering the rooftop as you're run straight into the bar. I found the layout to be odd.

sitting outside was a plus but cocktails were average along with average food; fingers crossed it gets better as its a nice venue - downstairs - the lady with the plants - amazing! would go back to buy something there

I wanted to love Estrella! The rooftop view is stunning, ambiance is perfect, service is excellent! However, I spent $80 on myself and left hungry. The healthy veggie based options didn’t not come with a crumb of carbs. Which is ok, but the small portions, no carbs and many plates we ordered tryout by to get full left out pockets and stomachs empty. The cocktails sound exciting and refreshing but were very weak on the alcohol content. So, $10 lime water. The bottle of wine we got saved the night, well priced and tasty! All in all, I know they have been open less than a week so I fully feel like these things can be tweaked as they are just starting out. I will go back at some point but would recommend them mainly for wine and the view!

Beautiful space on the rooftop of Bazati. Lovely place to grab a drink with friends, or to have a date night.

Atmosphere is lovely, and the staff are wonderful. Drinks are excellent and the plates are delicious. Had the lobster roll, shrimp quesadillas and the hibiscus champagne punch.

Be sure to check out the restaurant and shops downstairs. Already love this place!
