Rumi's Kitchen - Sandy Springs Ratings and Reviews
Food and service was outstanding, as always. Beware booking reservations on weekends. They overbooked which lead to my business dinner waiting almost an hour past my reservation time, so don’t worry about running late or trying to be on time on the weekends. You’ll end up waiting for a table anyway.
We dined at Rumi's to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food was outstanding. We had steak and lamb kebabs, as well as mirza (eggplant dip) and shrimp skewers as appetizers. Unfortunately we had to stand for about 30 minutes after our reservation time before we were seated.
We have visited Rumi's numerous times in both sandy springs and at the Avalon in Alpharetta. We have always had excellent service In the past. This past visit in Sandy Springs on Dec 1st was very disappointing!! We had to continually ask for the waitress for bringing things to us...she probably wouldn't have ever taken our order other than we told her we were ready to order. The wait on anything from drinks to orderves to our main entree' was rediculously long. Not sure I will return to this location again.
I was very disappointed when we were told to be seated in the main dining room WHEN I SPECIFICALLY ASKED FOR ONE OF THE SMALL ROOMS DUE TO THE NOISE. After telling the girl that this was unacceptable, she finally seated us in the small room, WHICH IS WHAT I ASKED FOR IN THE FIRST PLACE. It just so happens that I frequent this restaurant due to the wonderful food and service.
I SUGGEST THAT YOU TRAIN YOUR PEOPLE UP FRONT TO GRANT WISHES THAT WERE REQUESTED WHEN THE RESERVATIONS WERE MADE.
It was a zoo at first, everyone trying to get in line and be seated. It was packed, but thankfully we made a reservation. But once seated, it was nice. The noise level was a bit much, but once the food came it was splendid... the taste superb. Which explains why everyone wants a table there.
When I made the reservation, I requested to be seated in the back room. Also mentioned that we were celebrating a birthday. When we got to the restaurant (at 6:00 it was not the least bit crowded), the hostess took us to the table closest to the entrance. Of course I told her that we specifically requested the back room. So then she took us to the back room and without asking if it was ok, started to put menus down on a table in the middle of the room when there were available tables by the window. When I asked if we could have one of the window tables, she did accommodate us. I just find it insulting when restaurants try to pawn off the least desirable tables on the early arrivals.
Also, no mention was made of the fact that we were celebrating a birthday. Why ask on the reservation if not to provide something special for the customer?
I was really looking forward to my visit at Rumi’s, but unfortunately it did not meet my expectations. I went with a group of girlfriends for a moms’ night out and to celebrate a birthday. It was my turn to choose the restaurant and I am quite embarrassed with how bad this particular outing went. I felt we had to yell at each other to converse because it was so loud in the front room. I mentioned it was a friend’s birthday to the host, and that was never acknowledged at our table. Our server was terrible. She was nice, but she was struggling with our orders the entire time. She brought out the wrong items. I ordered a side, asked for it twice and never received it. She also messed up half of our tickets when it was time to pay. About the only thing that saved this trip was the quality of food. Otherwise, it was very difficult to enjoy ourselves. I NEVER leave this bad of a review for a restaurant or business, but sadly I can’t let this one slide.
