Good, convenient place to rendezvous for first date dinner downtown as my date works downtown and I work adjacent to MARTA rail line in Buckhead. Food was excellent, service good but unobtrusive. Noise level such that I could hear if I leaned in a bit but we were not distracted by overhearing others’ conversations.

I had the BEST time here this past Sunday! It was my 1st time but it will NOT be my last. We had the best waitress! We had 4:15pm reservations and were seated immediately! Our server Destiny was on POINT! LET ME SAY IT AGAIN! ON POINT!!! She knew that menu inside out and was truthful and attentive! Way to go Destiny (2yrs in) I appreciated her taking time to repeat items and never missed a beat with what we ordered nor did we have to wait long! I will definitely recommend to my friends and can't wait to come back again!! Food excellent, drinks great! ambiance perfect! Loved It!!

It must have been the waiters first day, he struggled with removing the champagne bottle foil. We ordered 3 types of oysters, when served no one identified the difference. Entrees were delicious but we would have like to enjoy the wine with dinner not half way through the meal.

Terrific meal for all in my dining party. We ordered steaks (done perfectly) as well as the seafood "combo", grouper and fish (sea bass) special. All were excellent. The dessert (sundae) was a hit - although the brownie portion may be better than the ice cream. Good prompt service also!

Tuna appetizer: could literally taste gas from the torch used to “sear” it.
12oz Filet: complete lack of seasoning, undercooked.
Pork Chop: first delivery was raw, second lacked seasoning.
Bottle of Newton Cab: received Claret, just drank it anyway.

To be fair on the meats, we asked for no demi glaze. However, serving undercooked and under seasoned meat should be unacceptable at a place like this. No salt or pepper in the kitchen?

The manager removed the pork from the bill, which was appropriate and appreciated. As for everything else ... waste of a meal.

The scallops were very large but tender and delicious. The shrimp and grits were good. The shrimp were average but the grits delicious! The lack of attentiveness and interaction by our waiter, Bakery was not what we have come to expect in a fine dining restaurant.

The food was wonderful as we went there for our senior prom. I was a little confused as it seemed we had 2 servers and we were a party of 2. One of the servers was very hard to understand, but other than that it was a wonderful meal.
