A date night visit for me and my wife. Enjoyed the 6th anniversary menu Pre-fix that they prepared. The service really stands out at Seed. The space is s not noisy but not horrible. Food is consistently good. Highly recommend a visit if you have never tried

We celebrated our anniversary at Seed and it couldn't have been more special. We were given a private menu wishing us a happy anniversary on the printed menu and everybody we came in contact with from the hostess to the servers were great and wished us a happy anniversary. The food, wine and most importantly service could not have been better. Carmen, our server, was fantastic and the lamb I had literally peeled off the bone. My wife's pork could not have been better. This is a great fine dining establishment in East Cobb. Well done!

Birthday celebration for sister turned out great. Our table was ready (chef's table) which was so nice. Got some recommendations right from the kitchen. We ended with burgers, chicken sandwich/soup, Cod plate and me - beet salad with salmon. All was so good!! Service was nice and liked the special printed menus. Special B'day cake was very nice. Thanks for a wonderful lunch and celebration.

Seed has always been a favorite for dinner or drinks in East Cobb, but we were disappointed with our Mother's Day brunch. The food was well below the standard we have enjoyed in the past... nothing exciting about any of the brunch dishes that we sampled (omletes, waffle, potato pancakes etc). The service was very slow. It took an unusually long time for food to come out. I would not rush back for brunch.

I thought the food was spot on (I'm vegetarian) and everyone in my party agreed. Two men complained the portions were small. I prefer small portions with rich food and paired my main with a salad and felt it was the perfect size meal. Staff was friendly and attentive but professional and I like the more modern style decor. Good to have this type restaurant in a sea of OTP chains.

Nice ambience kind service nice food presentation, though dinner menu tasted so so, not sophisticated much..I expected more..but dessert (something soft cake), homemade butter and jam, bread were excellent. Loved spending time there, but I hate to give only 3stars b/c of taste of main courses: chicken was somewhat bulky and salty, scallops were not fully cooked and a bit smelly..felt so sorry for my birthday friend who had scallops..I had a better lunch the other time with trio which was much better. I may visit again for only lunch.

Everything was really fantastic from the food to the service, but it took a while to have the check payment picked up, so we ended on more of a low note.

Great service and seasonal entrees! You feel like your cheating because it's so good, but actually pretty healthy. I had the daily trio which is salad, soup and 1/2 sandwich of the day. This date was salad with blueberries, tomato soup with Fresh croutons and salmon/ bacon on ciabatta bread

Chef Torbush never fails to amaze me. His creations remind me of enjoying a fine bottle of wine. The unique combination of flavors starts out really impressively and then evolves over the course of the meal. The last bite is even better than the first.

I have been to many very fine restaurants but I have never been so consistently impressed as I have been at Seed.

This is an experience not to be missed.

Dinner was exceptional. Our table of six had the opportunity to sit at the chef's table. Lovely surroundings and fun watching the kitchen at work. David our server was wonderful. Grade A experience. Will definitely return to this hidden gem in East Cobb County.

I had the oiliest omelette I have ever had with the ham and swiss omelette. It was completely inedible. On top of that, the ham was grey. I even questioned what the meat was. My friends found their dishes to be ok, even the one that got the wrong thing and didn't want to wait to have it corrected. But it wasn't anything spectacular by any means.
I don't think I would dine here again. Every time I think about what I had I get ill! Bleh

My first time here was prefaced by several people saying how good it is. So I was excited! And I was not disappointed. The corn fritters apps create addictions! My butternut squash stuffed ravioli was just delicious. There were many sides to chooses from, and I got grilled asparagus. All was delicious to include my glass of Côtes du Rhodes. I'll be back.

The salads and toppings are just so unusual and delicious, I keep returning for lunch. All my friends who have come to have lunch also absolutely love the food. I like the quick and careful service of every waiter who has ever waited my table. I just love the consistency of the wonderful cuisine and service.

I would say that the hostess had a smirky attitude when sat us down at the "Chef's Table." AKA the loud noisy table by the kitchen no one wants to sit at and look at all the crap on the floor. The waiter was nice enough. The food is completely OVERPRICED! Almost $24 for vegetarian ravioli that came out 4 -6 tiny pieces on a plate. The veggie plate looked like a hot mess b/c we made a substitute. If you just want to check in, waste you $$ and feel cool - go ahead.

Enjoyed our Sunday brunch thoroughly. Food was delicious as were the mimosas. The best part was the amazing service provided by Carmen. Seemed to anticipate needs without asking and had a lively yet kind personality. Thanks for a great start to our day.

I have eaten dinner a few times at Seed and loved it. I tried brunch for the first time and was disappointed. The food was good but I was expecting more. My husband got the creole omelet and there was hardly anything in it. Honestly, I could have gone to Egg Harbor for the same meal at half the price. I expected brunch to be a little more special than it was. That being said, I'd go for dinner any time.

Love Seed and how special they can make an experience. The personalized menu was a big surprise for my daughter on her 16th birthday. It's the little touches that go along way.
Always a good meal and experience. Keep up the good work Doug Turbush!

2nd visit and we invited 2 other couples...We were warned to request that "finishing salt" was not added to our food because this kitchen tends to oversalt, so we did just that. All of our food, with the exception of French fries, did not come to us oversalted. Unfortunately, the person who ordered the French fries had to send them back because they were inedible to him, and the waitress brought a new batch out for him, supposedly not salted as much. These, too, were overly salted and no one at the table wanted to eat them. Overall, everyone had a good meal, but we didn't feel like the food we were served was worth the premium price we paid. My husband and I each ordered the Mahi special on fingerling potato slices with onions and thought it was yummy but stingy portion sizes. We are not compelled to return here in the immediate future.

Kristn was a great server! She was very passionate about the food and food was on point with her recommendations. The Jalepeno grits fritters were amazing. The duck was some of the best duck I have ever had. The creme Brule cheesecake was a great ending to an even greater meal. The next time I am town I will make sure to make time for dinner. I highly recommend!

We live in neighborhood and come often. Always enjoy it BUT wish padron peppers (the original, smaller, dark green ones -the ones last few times at stem were bigger, not dark green, and had some red in them and are not as good) were always on both menus.....
and wish menu was changed more often. It always seems to be much the same, and I enjoy trying a lot of new things. Thanks.
