    Very nice establishment. I was surprised to see NeNe cleaning her own place however this showed dedication to her staff and others that she can get the job done by any means necessary. We were checked on by more than one employee and it made me feel valued like our business matters. Will be back on my next visit to Atlanta!

    When I made my reservation, I asked for a booth. When I got there, all the booths were full, so they put us at a high top table. This is supposed to be an R&B and hiphop club. Well we found out the owners son is the DJ. Well this DJ was playing everything except hiphop and R&B. He was absolutely horrible. He was the biggest reason why we left early.

    The ambience was good and the servers were great, but the food was not good at all for the price. The catfish tasted bland, the rice did not look like yellow rice and the macaroni and cheese was terrible.

    Favorable points - I loved the décor (very upscale), the service we received was outstanding, and the alcoholic drinks and yams we ordered were extremely tasty. We also ordered two appetizers and two entrees but the yams were the only food I would order again. Room for improvement – Drinks should be served in glassware (not plastic cups), guests should be given silverware (not to-go cutlery), and they should not be charged $5 for Fiji bottled water and served Kroger brand bottled water instead. Additionally, guests should be made aware of the 18% service fee in advance of receiving the final bill.

    I ordered the Salmon salad, and it was amazing. It was full of flavor and there was no need to add salad dressing to it. The space was nice and clean, but the music was too loud which made it very difficult to carry on any conversation with my group.

    Celebrating birthday of 3 friends. I wld suggest that open table changes the “Standard” table choice to hooka table. Very disappointed to order dinner and only have tiny tables to place your food on or hold in your lap. A “ standard” table suggest to most a regular eating table.

    The service here is horrible. We had reservations. Stood at the front entrance door for 15 minutes waiting on someone to seat us. I reserved high table with balloons and candles. Didn't get that. Got a small table for 2. The music was great . The vibe was great. Food took 3 hours to come out . It was trash AND the bathroom was jacked up....out of order

    Went with family this past week, had the best time.Thursday 7/21 we went, they had new cooks that started that day and we were their first order. The food 10/10 was the best I’ve had in Atl. Everything was amazing. Service/Staff was 10/10. Her staff was very nice, some even got on the dance floor with us. Friday we went back, the staff was excited to see us again, food was so good i ordered two different meals, greens yams macaroni.wheew! Nene came in Friday she danced in her section, her son Brent was the dj, at one point he played her song she got the mic rapped to it. Most of us never left the dance floor. We got shots that was the best shots ever. Nene eventually took pictures, hearing that she doesn’t always like taking pictures. I get it. Watching person after person walk up to her I see how it can become overwhelming and too much sometimes. But she took the pictures laughed with us, danced a lil bit. Overall 10/10. To me the best lounge in ATLANTA. WHOEVER designed/decorated the lounge did such an amazing job, looks/style of the bar definitely gets a 10/10

    Came for the salmon bites but they didn’t have it, cat fish had too much breading. Location is nice, music is nice and service was ok. Server didn’t pay attention to me when I said I was taking care of the table and I didn’t like that I had to swipe my card twice because she didn’t put the order for my friends food and drink on my ticket. NeNe was amazing …didn’t want to bother her for a picture … I let celebrities enjoy without being the person To hassle them. She did send everyone shots which was nice 😊. Overall, I’ll go back but I’ll make sure to call to see if the salmon is in.

    Our family, the Smith Family visited ATL from Kansas City and had to try the Linnethia Lounge. The food and ambiance was outstanding. I really like how small the menu was. It makes ordering less stressful and overwhelming. The service was even better than the food and ambiance. Our server, Taylor, was magnificent! One little hiccup. Almost all 18 of us got our food in good time. Unfortunately, mine and one other did not get our food until the others were done eating. But once we got our food, it was really tasty! Also, Taylor made it really easy to stay chill and in good spirits. Such a sweet girl. I would recommend Linnethia Lounge.

    They could not accommodate my party of 9 and we got there like 45 minutes early. Then we were seated in a session and was told after we were waiting for them to accommodate us for table tops the waitress told us we had to purchase bottle service for $300.00. A suggestion when the owner (NeNe) saw that people were celebrating their birthday it would have been nice for her to speak or acknowledge the celebration.

    It was a great first experience! Nene was there and interacting and assisting her staff with serving patrons. It was good to see. The only caveat was the bartender and food service was a little slow. I was told that they were short staffed. Once that is resolved I’m certain the rating will change. Great space relaxing and laid back. I also loved the band.

    Dirty bathrooms, no toilet paper or towels, horrible drinks, slow service despite the place being empty,many items on the menu were not available, items charged didn’t match the prices on the menu and the response we got was, the online menu needs to be updated, we haven’t done it yet. So disappointed in the whole experience. The drummer/dj did good and was entertaining

    My experience @ The Linnethia Lounge was great. Great food, great service, good complimentary shots and good seating near the stage/dance floor. It was also amazing to see her and her Beaux there. They look great together. Me and my girlfriend will certainly recommend this place to others if you are visiting Atlanta or if you live in Atlanta.

    I made a reservation for Linnetha’s and was excited to check it out. Unfortunately, something came up and I wasn’t able make my reservation so I attempted to cancel it 3 hours before my reservation. OpenTable said I needed to contact Linnetha’s directly to cancel my reservation. So I called the restaurant. No answer. I called again 20 minutes later, no answer. I called 10 times a 3 hour span and there was no answer at all. So I sent a DM to the Linnetha Instagram page requesting to cancel my reservation. No response. And guess what, I was charged for not showing up for my reservation. Unbelievable. I couldn’t cancel my reservation but I was definitely charged for not showing up for up. Sounds like a scam to me. I will not be attending a Linnetha’s ever in life. Terrible experience. Terrible business model and terrible lack of customer service. Don’t waste your time making a reservation at Linnetha’s. Take your business elsewhere.

    I've been to the lounge at night a few times enjoyed myself and the band. This time on Father's Day brunch drove 2hrs I brought friends and Nene was suppose to host this event. There for 3 hrs and only saw a glimpse of her. Asked the waitress several time to refill the hookah never did, and I was over charged. It's a beautiful lounge that needs a staff who cares.

    It was a birthday party for my daughter. I asked could NeNe come over and take a picture with her and was told : “if she feels like it, she will come over.” We were sitting in the booth right next to her. She continued to look over at us all evening but never came to engage, mingle, or even speak to us. I spent almost $2000 there that night and this really put a damper on the evening.. I will be looking for somewhere else to spend my money.

    Where do I start? I brought my friend there for her birthday. The waitress said, after checking with the MC that they don’t do birthday shoutouts. Nene came in and looked at many of us like we were pheasants. No greeting. We ordered food that wasn’t available and we didn’t know until after over and hour of waiting. The food was terrible. I actually threw it up when I got home and I had not been drinking. I tried to eat it but it was fairly difficult. The low quality cutlery and small tea tables were challenging. My friend couldn’t cut her lamb chops AT ALL. We ordered and paid for drinks that had substitutes. For instance, $25 for a dry ice beverage was substituted with regular ice for the same price. Hookahs were $60 each. This was a celebrity lounge and the service was more like an overpriced bodega. The fish and fries tasted the same. (Build your own conclusion). I noticed they had people they favorited there because everyone outside of them were treated poorly. The music was great though. I just wish they’d do a bit better. That was a poor experience, which also made me feel bad for taking my friend there. I even felt poor. And NeNe looked at us and others as if we were beneath them for being there.
