We met friends for Sunday brunch and had a wonderful experience at Seed. The Bloody Mary was perfectly seasoned. From the Smoked Ham & Swiss Omelet to the Brisket Hash to the Smoked Salmon & Potato Cakes to the White Cheese Grits..... everyone at the table was happy with their choices. A must when in Atlanta!

Given the anxiety and concern over the Coronavirus, we had a great experience where quite obviously the staff and kitchen were well prepared to take all precautions necessary to keep guests safe. Tables were thoughtfully seated, not just for even distribution for waiters as usual. There was a good distance between them so as to be in keeping with the social distance being recommended. None of this has affected the food, staff or service which is to be commended.

For drinks, yes. For dinner w friends, probably not. The server talked way too much and not about the food. He wanted to tell us about the other sister restaurant. When I knew what I wanted, and ordered, he attempted to change my mind. 🤦🏻‍♀️

The chairs at the tables were uncomfortable and originally we were seated where our view was directly into the kitchen until we requested to be moved.

The food was delicious.
The restaurant was appealing aesthetically.
I was hoping for a better experience on my birthday.

I've been to Seed several times now, and each time, they've exceeded my expectations. Their main menu is fantastic but what you really want to do is select something from their Daily Special Selections. They put an interesting 'twist' on everything they prepare. This past Sunday, I had the Blackened Sole on top of grits and it was nothing short of fantastic!!! I would also be remiss if I didn't mention the bar - fine specialty drinks crafted with care!!!

Excellent food and drinks, as always. I had the farmer's breakfast and a vieux carre for brunch. The farmer's breakfast has good options and always hits the spot!

The hostess was too busy when we arrived and did not welcome us. We we had a reservation but still got the little table by the kitchen doors. After a long wait our food finally arrived. The manager, not our waiter brought it out. After examining my tenderloin I can’t believe it was put in front of me-burned and dry, the worst I’ve ever seen/tasted. On a good note, once I brought this to their attention, apologies were given. However, I wasn’t really allowed to select a different item, the schtnezel was forced on me. By this time I was just ready to leave.

This is the first time we visited Seed for dinner after having several lunches here.
We were seated immediately and our wine order was taken promptly. When the bottle selected was not available, our server offered us a comparable wine at the lower price of our original choice.

A shared appetizer of Fried Calamari was perfectly tender. My wife raved about her Seared Scallops and my Korean Braised Short Ribs were delicious. It had a unique flavor I could not identify but was excellent.

We will have to put Seed into our dinner rotation in the future.

What an outstanding time we had celebrating my mom's 85th birthday at Seed. I don't know why we go anywhere else. From accommodating an extra guest to placing us in a semi-private room up front, it made for an exceptional event that we won't soon forget. Everyone loved their food, and Jonathan, our server, was top-notch. He seemed to be able to read the room to know when to arrive with refills, and sensed every other need we had. He was outstanding! Seed is a true OTP gem that has everything ITP has to offer and then some. The creativity of the chefs, especially for brunch, shines through in the food, and the ambience accentuates it even more. It has become a go-to spot for our special occasions and for good reason. The food is consistently good and the service one-ups itself every time. We are thankful to have such a fine place here in Marietta, and will continue to support this establishment as I recommend you do the same!
