My wife and I went on a Saturday to celebrate and anniversary. We were a little early and were seated immediately. Unfortunately, we were seated in a section of close seating (6-12 inches between tables) already occupied by several very loud groups. They refused to moves us to a section with more private tables (saying it was closed when clearly it was being used). I suspect they did not have the staff to cover it.
Service was exceptionally slow and the waiter a bit surly.

The food was only OK. We had the scallops and the sea bass. Both dishes were under seasoned.

It’s unlikely that we would return

This was truly one of the best dinners I have had in Atlanta. I highly recommend this fabulous restaurant! The stuffed mushrooms are delicious. The scallops and salmon were both wonderful. And the pecan pie was to die for! Great spot for a special occasion or date night!

We arrived at 6:45 for a 7:00 pm reservation and were seated right away. Restaurant was less than half full and over the next hour and half, it was less than that. I ordered duck confit. When I have had this dish in the past or made it myself, the duck is very moist, falling off the bone. At Rose and Rye, I couldn't cut my duck with a knife. It was totally dried out. It was served with a heap of sauteed onions in a sauce, which probably would have been good if it was served immediately after preparation. However, it seemed like it and the duck had been prepared days ago and reheated.
My husband ordered what the waiter said was trout. It wasn't trout, nevertheless, it was a nice fillet of white fish well prepared, tender and nicely seasoned.
The staff was rather clueless. When I responded to our waiter's inquiry about the duck that it was dry, he looked perplexed, then came back and offered us free dessert. We declined, finished our wine and left. I doubt this place will be in business a year from now.

We had a lovely dinner before attending a play at the Alliance theater. We were the only diners at the time which is such a shame because the food was so good. The wine list is excellent!!!
We valet parked for a $5 charge and I asked them if I could leave the car until the play was over and they said sure it would be $10 which is much less than the parking deck.
Staff was friendly & welcoming.
This will be our go to place when we visit the Alliance Theater or the High Museum.

We were excited to have dinner reservation but upset we had to cancel as we got in the middle of Atlanta traffic. We did have time to have cocktails and drinks at the bar. Our bartender Rashad was fantastic!! Food was great and he made sure our food came so that we could make our show. We looking forward to our next night out at this establishment.

I really want to love this place. This was my third visit. I gave them the benefit of the doubt on the first two, because they had only just opened. I’ve read reviews about them not being able to keep up with a crowd, and unfortunately that was the case Thursday night. I thought the food was quite good, and the servers were excellent. But there were only two guys in the kitchen trying to turn out food for the whole restaurant, which was packed for pre-theater at the arts center next-door. I can understand that happening once by accident. But based on the reviews it seems to be their business plan. I might go back, but never on a night when I have to get in and out in less than two hours to make a curtain.

Let me start by saying our sever, Chet, was fantastic; he continually kept us up to date on the numerous issues in the kitchen. The hostess was very unprofessional and the kitchen was a disaster. Our salad course never showed. 3 of our party was served an entree and by the time we were finished, our 4th had yet to be served.. Management needs to follow up on this lack of communication between the front of the house, the servers and the kitchen. Really disappointing experience all around. I was also marked as a no show when the manager himself seated us.

Service was good, but they were out of 2 of the 3 entrees we ordered. We got an expensive charcuterie and there wasn't any mustard or soft cheese on there. All of the meals we did end up getting seemed under seasoned as well.

We were going to the theater and we got in in plenty of time and ordered and our food came out in a timely manner. Our waiter was very nice but the restaurant was understaffed, chaotic, and very overwhelmed with the Theatre crowd. For a restaurant right across the street from the Atlanta arts complex they should be in a rhythm by now of handling theater crowds.

New spot for us, but we liked the location (next to the High Museum) and found the food good and the service ok. A manager readily agreed to reseat us away from a ver cold AC down draft and he was alert to the service needs of diners. Wine was reasonable and top shelf. Noise level rose after 8:00 but wasn’t awful. We will go again, and hopefully, sit outside for the music and nice views.

We sat upstairs, outside on the porch. That was a lovely setting. It felt intimate while also being open air with view into trees and arts center.

The distance from the kitchen posed a challenge for the waiter. He had to run back and forth 3 times to get all our dinner plates for a party of four. And, we had to wait for that process to complete before getting our silverware replenished to begin eating. Finally, glasses of wine requested with “1st plate drop” didn’t show up until we were all done eating and ready for the check. (Thankfully, waiter didn’t charge us for them).

And the food. Seemed creative, but a pronounced sweetness was present nearly everywhere. Fried calamari were over sauced in a sweet/hot sauce. The duck confit came with a mound of sweet onion jam (tasty jam, just too much) the plate was dressed in a sweet balsamic reduction. The saving grace was a swipe of cauliflower puree for foundation. And, the scallops appeared sweetly sauced (though this reviewer did not taste them).

Prices for mains sit at $28 and up ($40 for the sea bass). Salads and starters were in the $10-12+ and looked large enough to share. Same for the vegetable sides: sized for sharing.

Finally live music on the patio competed with 80’s music pumping through the speakers.

Inside dining appeared to be noticably louder due to lots of hard surfaces.

All in all, good for it location for pre show dining. Not becessarily a destination experience.

Our experience was that the noise level more than offset the very good food, fine service, and outstanding wine list. I was sitting only a few feet from my wife and yet we could hardly hear each other. We noticed that many other diners were looking and using their cell phones who probably never noticed their isolation or did the phones provide the needed help. We passed on dessert in order to get out of the noise. This was our fourth time at Rose and Rye and in retrospect the prior visits were when the restaurant was far emptier or our table was in the area of the stairs leading up to the terrace. This could be a favorite pre-symphony or Alliance dining place but for the noise.

This was our first time dining with R&R, and we were very impressed and pleased. Wait staff was excellent, very personable. Cocktails were nice and the food was fantastic, especially the scallops. We had show plans with the symphony and this was an excellent choice for pre-show dinner. Popular place, and once it filled up, it was very noisy. That would be my only issue, but that is not unusual for an Atlanta restaurant.

We arrived for our reservation early, were seated, did not speak to a server for more than 10 minutes. A waiter finally appeared and we were informed that they were sold out of several apps and that we could not order a main dish. And that we needed to order drinks and apps right then. We were taken aback, rushed and confused. Drinks took another 20 minutes. The. Apps took 30 minutes and then we got our check without asking for it and were not checked on at all. Overall experience was terrible. The little amount of food we tried was good. Don’t go on a Friday night. I guess they can’t handle it.

The scallops and risotto dish was delicious! Cooked perfectly and seasoned very well. Fried green tomatoes were super good, too.
Drinks are a little expensive for what you get. I had the Skeleton Room cocktail and it was delicious, but it was very small. The man who seated us was very good. He was on top of everything and picked up where our waiter slacked off. Our waiter, Chad, didn't do that great of a job. Only checked on us once after we got our food, never asked if I wanted another drink (which I did, but he was nowhere to be seen). Even my water glass was empty and no refill offered. He sure was there when it came time to pay, though, lol.
Overall, it was a great experience. Loved the atmosphere and the layout. Again, the food was delicious! My hubby got the cobb salad with Shrimp, which was good. Shrimp was well cooked and seasoned. I'd definitely recommend this establishment!

I had made reservations four days ahead, we were seated practically in the kitchen despite only one table being filled already. I requested a change in tables and the hostess said all the tables were spoken for! The place was almost empty. When our server came I expressed my concern and he moved us immediately and for a birthday celebration he served us some complimentary “champagne “ which was flat. He did repair the situation and served us some Prosecco. Our food was great, our waiter was very nice but not very attentive. The views are great up on the porch, worth the experience and the food but for an upscale place overall the service was sloppy.

Terrible experience dining before a show. 6:30 reservation and we were rushed in, rushed to table and told to hurry ordering if we wanted to eat before the show. After all that, it took forever for our drinks to come. Further, we purposely ordered appetizers only to make it easier. The Meat and Cheese board came with just meat. We asked where the cheese was and they could not answer the question, but said they would send some out right away. 15 minutes later, still No cheese. The tuna appetizer was sitting on top of a bed of dark brown avocado. No one from management came to the table to see what they could do to make the experience better. We will not return!

Great location just across 15th Street from the Woodruff Arts Center, with valet parking right in front of the restaurant. Upon arrival, we were greeted so warmly and professionally by the valet drivers, but much less so by the host, who never made eye contact, fumbled around with his ipad, and led us upstairs without a word (continuing to focus solely on his screen).

The waitress was sweet and friendly but spoke so quietly that we had trouble hearing her, even though the restaurant wasn't crowded. Lastly, our entrees weren't delivered simultaneously, creating that awkward moment when 3 of our plates grew cold waiting for the 4th entree to be delivered.

The menu is great - something for everyone, and everyone at our table enjoyed their meal. But the service was so slow and disjointed that we ran out of time and weren't able to order coffee or dessert.

Building is beautiful - artfully mixing new and old architecture in an extremely tasteful way.
Specialty drinks were all very good and inventive, each with a good story about them.
The Server, bless her heart, tried REALLY hard... when I pointed out that the fish (which was delicious) was presented on quinoa, rather than the farro that she had told us ("Farro? ... it's a grain") she was confused, and then asked the chef ... who agreed that it WAS quinoa ... then, she wasn't sure what to do with that information ... except to tell me that I was correct. I smiled, and let her know that I was doing it to help HER, not to be correct ... she smiled, " 'k " .
Food was very salty. Everything, with the exception of the fish, even the side veggies.
If we go back it will be to sit at the bar for drinks

Must have been off night. Slow service; order was not correct. Never saw a Shift Manager (couldn't tell if there was one). Food was OK, not great. Interior decoration is a mess, does not flow well. Not sure if this is because of limitations with historic property, or just poor design.

For such a great location, have to admit I was disappointed.

My husband and I recently moved to Atlanta and prior to attending our first show at the Atlanta Symphony, we dined at Rose + Rye. We were looking forward to dining here, but we were a little nervous based on some of the reviews we had seen. We are so grateful that our dining experience was a great one. First of all, the restaurant is beautiful it is in an old mansion. Upon arrival, the hostess, was extremely friendly. Our server Corey was fantastic, after he learned that it was our first visit, he told us a bit about the restaurant. We had some questions about the food and he made sure to address them and even took an extra step to be sure that my husbands syrup was not spicy, after my husband let him know he did not like a lot of spice. The manager was also very nice and even fixed our table after one of the legs got loose. The food was delicious, my husband had chicken and waffles which he loved and I had salmon with vegetable couscous, it was delicious. For dessert, my husband had a slice of chocolate pecan pie with ice cream and I had the lemon bar pie. We both loved our desserts. We had a great first visit and look forward to the next time we can dine at Rose + Rye.
