I made this reservation for a party of 11 to surprise my husband for his birthday. The number of guests changed a few times but the staff was very flexible. My husband and I were flying in from Philadelphia and all of the planning was done online. They accommodated everything that I requested and the night was fabulous! The food was excellent and the service was amazing. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great place to eat where the food, ambiance and service are a class act! I can’t wait until I return to Atlanta again...this place will definitely be apart of my restaurant plans!

The food was unremarkable. Considering the reputation this place used to have, I was disappointed in my meal. Others at the table were disappointed as well.

I went with expectations arising from Paschal's history and found the only links to its exciting past as a center for civil rights activists, musicians and artists to be photos on the wall. The food was nondescript, including fried fish that tasted like cardboard.

I was excited about this restaurant as it had good reviews on Open Table. Sadly, the food was way over salted and lackluster in general, except for the cheese grits, those were amazing. We were the first table of the day and it still took forever to get our food. Our server was very nice and attentive, but overall the experience was just meh. We won't be going back.

We were in Atlanta for the weekend after Thanksgiving 2018. I had 10 family members for dinner on 11/23/18. Opentable and Google listed them as open and Opentable showed that several other users made reservations for the same night. We took two Ubers there and they were closed. No sign on the door. Just closed. Needless to say it was very stressful to find alternate dining accommodations for a large group that included 5 kids who were very upset and hungry. We won't ever think about trying this restaurant again.

We made the reservation, drove 40 minutes to the restaurant only to find out that they were closed. No notice from the restaurant, website said they were open, I guess they just didn’t care enough to inform patrons that had reservations.

The food was good. But considering it was Thanksgiving and quiet pricey, I expected at least to see table cloths on the tables. Just a minor thing but presentation is everything to me.

Second year doing Thanksgiving at Paschals. 2017 was way better. Expected more on the traditional menu with more selections for the price. Some of the hot food was just warm. There was a foul fishy odor where the main course items were served. The crawfish and shrimp should have been somewhere else. Dessert options were just ok where was the pecan, pumpkin and sweet potato pies? Turkey was dry on the dark meat. Was just ok this year...

I visited Pacshals for thanksgiving and the experience was amazing! We were immediately greeted upon entering with smiles and good spirits.

Our waitress was fantastic. She was knowledgeable about the menu, our options and specials for the day and checked on our table periodically.

The food was phenomenal. I’m so glad the food wasn’t traditional thanksgiving food. The menu was very diverse and was catered to all diets.

I will visit this restaurant again and will refer others.

Our service was great with the valet service. Our server was excellent. However the hostess could have been more friendlier or at least cordial. When we arrived we stood there for over 5 mins, no one was at the desk to greet us. When she finally came out ,the first thing she said with a mean demeanor was "Do you have reservations?" She never acknowledge our wait or even said hello or welcome to Paschals. I was a bit turned off from that however I noticed a smile when I observed her greet other patrons that did not look like me. Hmm? I am hoping she was having a bad moment. I will return as the food was delicious.

The best thing about our experience was the service. Our waitress was very attentive and timely. Beyond that, I can't say that it was anything special. The blackeyed peas had a metallic taste and the yams looked like they were scraped from the bottom of the pot. The quality of the food was lackluster at best and for the prices it wasn't worth it.

This restaurant was my family’s favorite place to eat when dropping me and my sister off to college back in 2006-2011. It was perfect for a delicious and family friendly meal. Now I use it as an Atlanta signature brunch spot when me and my late 20-something friends come into town. Paschal’s is as tasty as it is versatile.

Food was good but the service was very unorganized. Our waitress was over worked which resulted in our dinner being less than what we hoped for. We cancelled a cocktail , an appetizer and a side dish as they hadn’t appeared and we were 3/4 through our entree. Unfortunately we won’t be returning.

Server was oblivious to our needs. No Appetizer plates, water refills. Lemon wedges for water looked recycled.
We were left unattended for long periods of time...had to get the hostess to go get our server. Sat and waited for service too long after first being seated by hostess. Too loud. Not an enjoyable experience. It's as if service is simply not important

The service was terrible for the restaurant not to be busy the waitress we had was to busy rushing to run and speak with her co workers than spending time to check on us and to make sure we were satisfied with our orders. I ordered the catfish entree and the fillet I received was so big that it wasn't cooked all the way. I ate my sides greens and mac and cheese and my wife ordered the chicken dinner her chicken wasn't cooked throughly also. It took us 20 mins to receive our food once our order was placed.and another 15 to find our waitress after we received our food to ask for our check. This was my first time visiting this restaurant and from this experience I will not be returning any time soon

The food was excellent but the staff was not as attentive as most restaurant. We had to ask other staff to help us when someone needed service. Our waiter became MIA after order was placed. When we tried to make eye contact the staff was difficult as they would avoid us. This was a business luncheon with 10 people. Note they had no sugar in packets, they had to bring an open cup from the back.

The restaurant was great. Valet parking is offered, just make sure you tip even though it's complimentary because they do work hard. The restaurant gives you the feel of an upscale restaurant and not a soul food place. The food, oh the food was great. This was the best fried chicken that I've ever had. The only thing that I would change is the service that we got. The waiter was not nasty or rude, it's just that once we got our food he never came back to our table until we were finished eating. We needed refills and we were done eating for at least 15 minutes before he even came back to the table. Other than that, it was a great experience.
