    I went for an intimate birthday dinner and enjoyed every moment. From John’s excellent service to the overall ambiance. The scallops were a standout as was the wagyu. Highly recommend.

    The food wand drinks were amazing. However, the noise level was almost deafening. It’s like this at the other locations but I was disappointed that there were not noise reduction measures built in to the brand new space. We had a four person table and we could only talk to the person next to us by talking directly into their ears.

    The labneh with roasted tomatoes that we started with was delicious, the fresh warm bread just made it better! We had the lamb chops and the scallops and both were delicious. I like their selection of middle eastern wines.

    Every time we visit Atlanta, we stop at Rumi's. The food is just outstanding and the service is so helpful and patient. We order a lot and stay late and they are very accommodating. My only wish is that they would add a Persian stew to the menu that is vegetarian.

    This is by far my favorite place to dine in my neighborhood and in general. I come here often with friends and business clients, and I always have a great experience. During my last visit, I arrived five mins early for a 8:30pm reservation, but I was not seated until 8:45pm. Once seated, they stuck me and my guest at a small table against the window in the bar area. I wasn’t happy about the location, but the food and service was excellent as always. Part of the overall experience dining here is the ambiance, but it was lacking this time around. Otherwise, it’s generally a five star experience, and I highly recommend!

    Service was superb. Our first time at Rumi's and the help we got from our server was extraordinarily good. Food was unique, expertly prepared and served, and delicious. Recommend the kabobs with 2 or 3 sides, amusingly called "Tastes" on the menu. We were delighted and full when we left. Will definitely go back.

    Rumi's Kitchen is our absolute favorite place for Persian food in Atlanta. We have been to the Sandy Springs and Alpharetta locations several times and this was our first time to the new location at Colony Square. It certainly did not disappoint and is just as fabulous as their other locations.

    The restaurant was extremely noisy and cramped. It’s not a small restaurant, but they had so many tables so close together that it was impossible not to be interrupted by other people’s conversations. This meant we had to listen to a guy talk about his divorce for an hour. The tables were also so small that we were unable to have multiple plates to eat together with the main course, which was unfortunate. Overall, I’d say there are better options if you’re looking for a nice night out, with this location being nothing more than a pricey novelty.

    I made a reservation which we were early to, we were happy to wait at the bar while we waited for our table. I checked in with Host stand 30mins early and was told I would receive a text message. It was a Friday night, very busy so there were no seats, it was about 20mins before I could grab someone’s attention (5bar tenders) to stand and enjoy a glass of wine. We finally grabbed a seat at the bar for drink #2, now at the time of our reservation but we were told our table was almost ready. We were sat 25 mins after our reservation, when we were originally told they could probably get us in early. It was my friends birthday and it was not a great experience. The food is amazing there, there’s not a system and it’s hard to get help.
