The salmon was cooked perfectly.
Our favorite restaurant! Was there with reservations for a 25th anniversary dinner. Was surprised to be seated in the bar without being asked if that was acceptable. Still an amazing experience.
Service was very slow and crowded but food was great
Celebrating Greek Easter
Delicious food and outstanding service! Definitely recommend!
Rumi's is a fantastic restaurant. My BF and I -- as well as other friends of mine -- have dined here frequently and no one has ever had anything other than a wonderful experience. The food is indescribably delicious. My peronal favorite dish is the grilled salmon - which I've had here on numerous occasions - and it's always wonderful - maybe one of the most memorable and exquisite salmon preparations I've ever had anywhere. But I've also tried several other entrees and they were all equally delicious. This past weekend, we dined outside on the patio - and it was really quite pleasant. The service was excellent. What more can I say? If you've never dined at Rumi's you are really missing out on something special!
Very nice restaurant! Excellent service and great food.
I had heard wonderful things about this restaurant and everything lived up to its reputation. Fantastic food and superior service!
Food was a really good but too much for one person. Would probably go back but maybe a couple times per year. This type of food was good but not something I'd eat often. It was nice to try something different.
Fun night out with friends. Food was amazing - shish kabobs, shrimp kabob, chicken barg, grilled vegetables. Service from bartenders, waiter was great.
Patio dining on a beautiful evening. Avalon had the outdoor speakers along the sidewalk cranked up - was a little annoying and hard to hear conversation - but not the restaurant’s fault and well worth the trade to nab a spot outside. Servers and kitchen staff were working hard. Food came out fast for a busy night.
Food was good, but place is too loud. Price like usual high, but understandable for its location.
Somewhat pricey but excellent food and service. A wonderful experience!
Every time we go we are seated next to the dirty dishes collection pan and the noise is a bummer 😕
Excellent food - lovely atmosphere!
My wife and I enjoyed a delicious meal outside at Rumi-Avalon. The service was attentive and warm. Food was delicious.
It helps to have a reservation. Our service wasn't the best but our server seemed to be a friendly, hard worker. Restaurants just can't hire enough help these days.
You can tell Manny wasn’t there as the manager
Service was very slow - 40 minutes to get the hummus appetizer!
Excellent food choices and very friendly and courteous staff. This is one of our favorite restaurants - thanks
Very good food, large portions, nice to sit outside!
This was my first time dining there. The food was absolutely amazing!!!
We discovered the original Rumi's in Sandy Springs. When they opened the Avalon location, we were excited, tremendously. the decor, ambiance, and food! this is a fantastic restaurant. We constantly tell friends about the place and have brought many here to dine with us. Always a fantastic experience, always a delicious meal!
Our favorite restaurant ever. Food and service is ALWAYS fantastic! Very hip and lively crowd always packed so make a reservation!! It’s everyone’s favorite spot.
Rumi’s is always great. Such flavorful food and a good wine list.
All was excellent, except for the fight with the ongoing fruit flies. Definitely a problem.
Our server was great
Always great food ambiance and service, it is our favorite place
Amazing Food and best Rices on the planet!
We were seated promptly. The server was professional and not pushy. The hummus appetizer was delicious as well as the chicken kabob meal. There are several options for side rice dishes. All of them are very tasty. I was very pleased with the meal.
5stars all the way around! Waiter Benny was fabulous
They are no longer keeping spaces between people because of COVID and if you have been to this restaurant before you know is extremely crowded and they put a table anywhere they can fit one. I was almost touching the table next to me. Noise level is very high. Food is really good but you can’t really enjoy it with people constantly on top of you and the noise level.
Anniversary celebration. Great time, ambiance, and food were excellent as usual. The only downside about the experience was that we had to wait 45 mins after our reservation time to be seated and our food came out before our drinks.
Overall a great experience. Need a better wine selection, particularly at more affordable price points.
Great food and service!
The food was so flavorful! The server had great recommendations and helped us understand the menu. Will be back!
Great food as always but still a bit expensive
Come hungry and ready for a culinary journey of flavor and eye appeal. The service from the hostess to the server was the best I have had in Atlanta in a long time.
This was our first time in Alpharetta and the Avalon area. Excellent food and even better service from Angie. Unfortunately our table was directly in the path of traffic. The biggest downside is it was very loud and difficult to hold a conversation.
Always great service, large portions and amazing atmosphere. Very loud for those that may be sensitive or looking for a more quiet place.
Excellent meal and excellent service. We ate and drank way too much, but it was great! I always love my trips to Rumi's!
