Our Waitress was very nice, but our food was mostly cold, actually the only thing we got that was hot was the Baked Mac & Cheese, and the chicken wings were very small, Pascal seems to be going down, which is a grave disappointment, I know the history on Pascal's, but was saddened by the food quality.

Food was by far best in ATL! Service was a little slow but when we taste the food, it wiped the slate clean. We will be returning!

Everything was great! Originally we went for brunch, but found out they stopped doing brunch during the pandemic. I felt very comfortable dining inside with my family. They were take appropriate precautions due to covid. They consistently exceed expectations.

We enjoyed the well prepared southern food. Perfect for the entire family. The server, Royal was sweet, funny, and knowledgeable about the menu. As staff members walked passed they all checked on us which is different from any dining experience I have had before.

Unfortunately had not heard of Paschals eventhough I'm an Atlanta native; my husband had but apparently kept this soul food gem to himself. I ordered only sides for dinner from Uber Eats one evening and fell in love. I immediately made reservations for 3 weeks later and was not disappointed. It was just as delicious. Their Peach Cobbler tastes like my own. I didn't realize my recipe was public. Lol! Fiedi was our server and was sweet too. I'm adding this to one of my favorites list.

I was pleasantly surprised by Pascals. As an Atlanta native, I am familiar with Pascals legacy’s and rich history but I was unsure if their history was all they were going to bring to the table. Along with the classic Pascals nostalgia, I received a solid meal in a nicely decorated modern restaurant. They were not perfect but definitely worth the trip.

No parking whatsoever. Parked in hotel lot. A lot of signs saying not responsible for stolen things in car. So be safe! Asked host where to park so we wouldn’t be towed and she said don’t know. Smh. Finally get in and got seated nobody came to wait on us. Ten min later we order drinks then another ten before they came back and we ordered. Food came twenty min later. No refills on our drinks, nobody even asked if everything was ok. It wasn’t even busy due to us being the last reservation. Tables weren’t clean around us, it was hot and humid. Very dark with bad lighting. Reservation was at eight so could be why lighting was poor. Scary going to the bathroom there around that time Bc it’s off in the way back so bring a friend. Besides all of that the food was great and specially for the price. Unfortunately I would never go back nor recommend.

It could be the restaurant is still recovering from Covid-19 pandemic shutdown in 2020. It was not like the amazing experience prior to Covid-19.
The food was not as good as previous.......lettuce on the salad was not fresh. The collard greens and yams were not seasoned well.
Now the food it is more pricey. Alacarte - 2 pieces of chicken was $12.00 ($6.00 per piece; $6.00 for 1 wing). This is too much. Regular side salad was $8.00, and did not have eggs, or bacon bits on it.
One good thing - the Peach Cobbler was delicious!

Very good food. You need to make a reservation or you can order takeout.
The only setback was that they told us about their 7 pm closing instead of 8 pm only when we arrived. But it seems that one employee had called in sick.
The four veggie plate was welcomed after traveling the South. And the salad with tuna had a huge very tasty piece of tuna.
Drinks can be served but I tap

We made a reservation for 12pm , the location opened at 12pm . when we arrived we were told we had to wait 10 mins to be seated , the place we nearly empty . Strawberry lemonade was koolaid they is self pour . Voodoo shrimp taste more like Buffalo shrimp . Our food arrived fairly quickly but was underwhelming. The candies yams and greens taste as if they came from a can , the potato salad had no seasoning. Black eyed peas were hard under cooked . The tiny morsel of cornbread they offer is very dry and has a weird after taste with notes or almond extract. The fried chicken was dry , under seasoned and not crispy , it was very light in color . We were disappointed from beginning to end .

Overall, I was disappointed with my experience at this restaurant. The food tasted good but they ran out of so many things we wanted. I’m from out of town and was told this would be a nice spot to celebrate my daughter’s college graduation. I expected more.

The experience would have been much better had the hostess been more kind and accommodating. She caused an unpleasant environment for my entire family and ruined a happy father son reunion and a college graduation celebration. The servers stated the family could all sit together, but the very rude and mean hostess made two of the party members sit several tables away.

Went there for Mother’s Day at the presentation of the restaurant was horrible. The restaurant is old, needs an upgrade. The food was small portions and not a variety of food choices on the menu. The service was not that great either. Had to wait for the waiter numerous of times. Overall was not a good experience and will not be going again.

Although they wouldn't seat is when we arrived 15 minutes early and the table was already empty, the food was good and the bartender made a wonderful drink based off me telling her someone I know had a fruity drink.

Restaurant was not that busy for Saturday night but the parking lots were full. We parked on the street behind the parking lot after circling for 5-10min.
We had a reservation but needed to wait for entire party to arrive to be seated.
Service wasn’t the best but not terrible. Our waitress had to get help from lots of others. She did not know the bar items really at all (didn’t know what a type of wine was when questioned). We had to ask for things multiple times and other servers assisted. She was very nice and apologetic.
The food was good. The staples (fried chicken, Mac & cheese, collard greens, & yams) were all delicious. I was not so impressed with the potato salad, peach cobbler, or their bar beverages.
