Table of 4 with 2 different orders of salmon. The size was the same on the menu but items came out looking different. Other than the little confusion the experience and food was great.

Overall I like the ambiance of the open space at Paschals. It was not busy at all on Sunday which I really liked. The only downside is the guy who is at the front desk. His attitude is very abrasive and aggressive. We asked to be moved from the table closest to the kitchen to another one and it was as if it was an act of Congress to move one table over. I mean really? The restaurant had just opened and there were less than ten patrons there. I do not understand why it was so hard to move one table over. He was not very visitor friendly and then when one of my guests confronted him about the reviews online, he remarked something to the effect of, "I don't know where you are looking at but my reviews are good." How arrogant and inaccurate of you especially since the "good reviews" are of the restaurant and not him. Nonetheless, the food was DA BOMB and our waitress (I forgot her name) was a breath of fresh air . . . she really saved the day my reservation was (Dec 26th 12:15 reservation)!

My family was excited to eat here for my daughter's birthday. We arrived at the restaurant and was seated immediately. We ordered our food and it took over an hour and 20 minutes to get to our table. We were just sitting there trying to pass the time. The waiter did come to acknowledge the poor service and the kitchen manager came and offered a discount. Once the food arrived, the orders were not very accurate. They made the adjustments and the food was actually fairly good. I want to give this restaurant a higher rating, but would have to have faith enough to come again and brace myself for another poor experience.

This is one of my favorite places and I highly recommend it to my friends who visit Atlanta. Unfortunately, this visit left a lot to be desired. The service was great, but the food was not good. My FAVORITE food item is the cornbread, and it was so dry and not the usual moist and delicious. The friend chicken was also bad. I felt so bad because I hyped it up and it was not the usual. I know lots has changed due to COVID.

HORRIBLE MANAGEMENT. The restaurant closes at 8pm but they have not set seating boundaries with open table. It will allow you to make a reservation up to 745pm but the kitchen closes at 730 and YOU WILL BE TURNED AWAY!!! Complained to management in an email and they basically stood by their employee and not the guest!

Dianna, we apologize for any misunderstanding and miscommunication that may have happened between you and our staff. Although Open Table may allow you to reserve up to a certain time, if there is more than 1 guest that's accompanying you, then our policy is to have everyone be seated at the same time. If you were the only guest from your party during the closing time of our establishment, our staff waits until the actual closing time to stop allowing guest inside. We do apologize for experience.

First time trying this "historic" restaurant. The atmosphere was nice and the place is clean. Service was very good. However, the food tastes like basic banquet food. Green beans were definitely out of a can, the chicken didn't taste fresh fried, and the potato salad tastes like store-bought potato salad. For the price and portion sizes, it wasn't worth it. I would only go back if I had a guest that really wanted to try it because of the name....
