The service was great however we had to send our wings back 3x for being over seasoned which caused my other food to get cold

I am sorry that you had to return the wings. Please accept my apologies. We usually get great reviews for the Bourbon molasses glazed chicken wings. We appreciate the service recognition and will share your comments with our team. We look forward to your next visit. Stay well, Martin van der Laan I General Manager

The service was not that great here - very disappointing. We were there for about 2 hours because we didn’t have a set server and probably were helped by 5 different people. I had to chase after someone to get the bill, which took another 10min or so to get. I hope it was an off night, because the food and drinks were really good, it was just the overall experience kind of put a damper on the meal.

I mostly went for the drinks. I’d rate the drink options at 8.5/10 - delivered pretty well. Food would be 7.5/8, helped by ambiance and drink selection but not sure it stands alone all that well. Service is 6.5, a bit slow but nice enough to maintain the experience.

We came to the Rowdy Tiger on a lark on one of the worst weather nights I've ever had in Atlanta, but they took care of us. I cannot say enough about the exemplary service, truly special stuff here. The cocktails were phenomenal, and the food was spot-on. I split the salmon salad thing with my mother-in-law, and I've never had salmon seasoned so well. My favorite dessert in the world is bread pudding, and Rowdy Tiger's bread pudding is up there with the best - baked in its own small cast iron skillet (!!). The ambiance is great - the space is broken up by big dividers, so the sound never gets too loud. The decor is modern without being annoyingly trendy. STRONG recommend

My wife and I had dinner here this past Saturday. From our perspective, this is a great place to have drinks, and not so great for dinner. I had the chicken and waffles but had to send back due to my chicken being overcooked. In addition, for the portion size and presentation of the dish, it is not worth $23. The drinks were good, so we still managed to have a decent time.

Came for a nightcap and appetizers with another couple. We were staying in the hotel, they were not. The food and drinks were a little expensive, but great. The service was slow and inconsistent. Our reservation was honored, but no mention of the birthday we were celebrating. The server took our drink menus and never returned although we stated we'd be drinking. The place is pretty, and maybe bar service is better, but I wouldn't dine in.

We went to the rowdy tiger looking forward to a night out.

Our server was clearly overwhelmed with all the tables. I use to be a sales manager for Darden so I know how he must have felt. The right thing to have done would have been to get managers/ the host to start greeting tables, taking orders, and running food. It should have taken 30 minutes to get our soup. The server apologized twice, which meant he knew it was lack luster service. If you need to apologize for service twice have a manager come to the table. There was no offer to have anything discounted.

Also, and other tables near us agreed.... you don’t need to have music blaring at 7pm.

Hope this was all a one time deal. The server said it was :)

We had a reservation and we arrived the hostess told us that it would be 10 minutes or so. After about 25 minutes, I went and checked in with her and she looked at me like she had never seen me before. It seemed that she forgot about us. We had been waiting in the bar and had a wonderful bartender. Once we got seated, nobody came to our table. We grabbed a waitress, who was not assigned to our table, and she was kind enough to wait on us. The food was very good but the service needs improvement.
