On a recent Saturday night visit, Food 101 was almost empty. Deservedly so. 101 Concepts has managed to ruin what was once a very good restaurant. A completely revised menu has replaced long time favorites with dishes that are bland and unappetizing. Highly competent and friendly veterans of the wait staff are all gone. The new chef is reported to be deaf to criticism. Staff morale is reported to be very low. While loyal customers for many years, we won't be back.

Dish had to be remade and instead of taking bAck piece of chicken that was a problem the whole dish was taken to be remade. When it came back, the chicken on the plate was 1/2 the size of the original chicken I had. Server was nice, but really should have noticed especially since dish arriving incorrectly was his entry of the order

We went for Thanksgiving this year (2017). We absolutely love this restaurant and go every other year for thanksgiving. While the all the food was good I was sad to see the lamb left the menu. The maple braised brussel sprouts were very pungent with oregano and thyme to the point that I couldn’t stomach them. Please know that I am just giving you constructive criticism, I understand the holidays get busy but maybe have the option of over-seasoning on the side. We will be back as I stated, we love this restaurant.

The manager met me and my date at the hostess station and immediately sat us down. The waiter was professional and informed us of the specials on the night's menu. The food was prepared in a timely fashion and we did not have to wait long for our food. Overall, experience was good.

Pretty good neighborhood bar/restaurant. We sat in the bar area to enjoy a football game. Service was excellent, food was good, a little salty. The chef did come out to visit us and each table asking our opinion. Will go back and try other menu items another time.

There was an audible fight between the cooks in the kitchen and our meal too so long to come out. Reservation was at 7 and we didn’t get served until about 8:45. Server was very nice and apologetic and even comped a dessert, but the food when it finally came out was marginal. None of us finished our portions or took leftovers home.

When we arrived, we sat at the bar to wait on the rest of our party. The bartenders (one male and one female) were not in any hurry to greet us or take our drink order. The male was a bit rude and obnoxious. He would answer questions even when we were talking to the female bartender about the drink list.

The restaurant was nice, but I wasn't overly impressed with the whole experience. For the cost of the meal, I would have expected a more "wow" effect. Not terrible, but I'm not DYING to go back.

Visiting the area and decided to give Food 101 a try. One ordered the sliders app and a salad as an entree, another ordered the 3 meat meatloaf, and I ordered the fried chicken. Everything was delicious. The meatloaf leans more on the sausage side, the chicken is a refreshing classic, tender and juicy. The sliders are lean (ground 3 times) and looked great. For desert, we shared a few bites of the chocolate cake (which was actually gluten free). Talk about wow; I'm a chocolate cake nut, and this tops my list.

Sean was our server, prompt, spot on, engaging, knew the menu and entrees. The staff seemed to very much be team players, helping each other out.

What I liked the most was it's a smaller restaurant, yet everything was spaced out and well decorated. The booths were more "alcove" like but still very open. Even though we had diners on both sides, they didn't intrude.

This is a great casual concept offering service of a higher caliber restaurant. Definitely on the list for the next visit to Atlanta.

We came here for Sunday brunch with friends visiting from out of town. We've eaten at Food 101 several times before and hadn't been disappointed until this visit. It was very busy, but we were seated immediately. Our waitress was apparently having a bad shift- she was unfriendly and inattentive. We had to flag her down numerous times to reorder drinks, ask for water and to place our food order. Once our food was delivered neither she nor anyone else came by to see if everything was alright, if we needed another drink, or to refill the water. When she brought the check, however, she appeared immediately to run the credit card.
Our food was delicious, as always.
