    The food was delicious. The rumi tart was one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. We also really enjoyed the non-alcohol cocktails. Our server was excellent! We’ll be back.

    I have been to other Rumi’s restaurant in ATL and brought a group of 6 for a business dinner. Food was great but our waitress was extremely rude pushing us out of the restaurant. My main customer had to pull his plate back at some point because she decided to take it away without asking. She was constantly intruding and the final experience was a disaster. Extremely disappointed with the experience, you just lost one customer

    This place never disappoints. Service and food is always perfect. I'm a huge fan of the salmon, sea bass and lamb kabobs. The salmon hummus is a great starter and the wine selection is good.

    The food was amazing as always. Our server seemed overwhelmed and another serve we grabbed wound up helping us some. We had a 9pm reservation and checked in 15 minutes early but weren't sat until after 930. The noise level was also very high but overall we had a good experience and will be back for the great food.

    We were traveling to midtown for a college visit and just used yelp to find something as we were starving from the flight. We really did not know what to expect but we were able to get a reservation and showed up to discover a beautiful and elegant restaurant with exquisite service and flavorful Persian inspired dishes. The servings were generous and we were all very happy with our meals. Would highly recommend!

    First time dining — we were there to celebrate a bday — and I must say everything was incredible and we enjoyed ourselves. All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed the hummus with the oyster mushrooms on top, so much so that I ordered a side of them as my entrée! LOL The shirazi salad, scallops, wagyu, lamb, and chicken kabobs were also amazing. The icing on the cake was the FORBIDDEN FRUIT cocktail my best friend and I had! I subbed the brandy for tequila in mine, and she subbed hers for rum, both came out CHEF’s KISS! LOL Will definitely be back!

    Food and service was excellent…as always. The chef and staff are second to none in Atlanta. If management could actually figure out how to dampen the noise (and maybe remove at least a few tables to open up the space a bit), it would allow patrons not only to have a good meal, but perhaps even a good conversation. Let’s try to accommodate people a bit more than profits…your $$ will follow!

    We took our granddaughter to Rumi’s for dinner before a show. Service was outstanding. The mushroom hummus was spectacular and I don’t generally like hummus. My only regret is that you get almost too much food. Could have done just the small plates, especially the crisp potatoes. But then we would have missed the lamb kabobs. A top Atlanta dining experience in my book.

    Food was amazing. Loved the atmosphere. Waitress had a horrible demeanor . My husband even commented on her tone and how she corrected my Farsi pronunciation. I thought she was just “over it” with us but then saw her roll her eyes at a question from an individual at a different table. I get it that it was extremely busy and loud in the restaurant but we do not want to be treated as if we are rubes when all we wanted to do is celebrate my husbands’s birthday. I left her a 20% tip anyways because I understand life can be hard in your late 20s.

    Our first time here and it won’t be our last. Food was outstanding and service was a finely choreographed ballet, with precision timing. Management personnel checked on us to ensure a great experience. Great pre-concert place. Everett was our server - we too every one of his recommendations and they were spot on.

    The new location is nicely designed and I was surprised the noise level was not out of control. I did not like how they crammed in so many tables of two right on top of one another which leaves little room for privacy. The parking is also difficult and expensive even though they partially validated the ticket. Serivce was just middle of the road and our waiter was kind of awkward at times. However, the food was very good even though the menu is slightly different than the Roswell road location. I tried the stew for the first which comes with a healthy serving of crispy rice and it was delicious.

    At our table for seven, all 20 dishes but one were outstanding. Service was perfect. The noise level, however, needs a little work. There are many hard surfaces for sound to bounce off. I recommend ordering the smoked salmon hummu and anything with lamb.
