Booked that day for family meeting to plan a funeral. Manager came by, interacted with thoughtfulness and very kind words. Dinner was very delicious, perfect sized portions. Later manager provided a comped desert. Seed has become our favorite place to eat when family is in town.

Again, Seed delivers a wonderful experience. With each and every visit, we are reminded that this is the best restaurant in East Cobb. We went this evening for the Valentine's Day menu and wine pairing. We began with champagne and a deviled egg. Both were wonderful. For our appetizers, the lobster claw salad was superb, and my champagne oysters were perfect. For our main dish, my wife had the trout and I the diver scallops with roasted vegetables. The wine pairings for each were nicely explained and very enjoyable. I had the peanut butter parfait for dessert, as I saw that Chef Turbush had made them himself, which was served with a port wine. My wife had a monstrous slice of strawberry cheesecake. Both desserts were the perfect end to the meal. Well done Seed.

Valentine's Day pre-fixed menu. 3 course for $75 was a little over-priced. The food was good, but not that good. We were seated in an area off the main dining room - no ambiance, but it would be great if you want no noise.

Valentine’s Day pre-fix menu was excellent. Great attention to details. Looking forward to visiting again on a regular night. Although I had heard and read about Seed, we had not eaten there, because it is far out for us, but it was worth the drive! Highly recommend!

We had early reservations for Valentine's Day dinner. It was a fixed price menu. It had a very good offering for each course and nice wine pairings. It was excellent, both the food and service. That was surprising given the crowd. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Solid but not great. For the price there are better options. Party of two for a prix fixe Valentine's Day menu ($75) + wine pairing ($25). Menu options were varied and interesting. We had Oysters, Beet Salad, Lobster / Risotto, Lamb Shank / Cheese Grits, Peanut Chocolate cake. Main dishes seemed to have been previously prepared and perhaps sitting for some time. Overall seasoning / taste was weak. The cook on the Lobster and Lamb was a bit overdone. We would not discourage a trip but at the same time would probably not recommend either.

The service was wonderful and the food was phenomenal. Great atmosphere for the most part. Our table was just a little too close to the kitchen area. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion. Top notch food preparation and selection.

We have been to Seeds several times with good food and service. However, the service was good but the food was average or below. Our meal started off with the Calamari arriving cold and over cooked. The entrees were good but not something you want to order again. Dessert..Lemon cheesecake was excellent.
Disappointed.

My wife and I both ordered the scallops that came with (5) rather small scallops ... BUT they arrived LUKE WARM at best. We have had other positive experiences at this restaurant but this meal was not worth the price with service that was substandard. We wanted to return but could not find the waiter who disappeared! Probably will not ever go back!

We had our favorite waiter, Rado. My wife got the monk fish special and said it was delicious. Rado recommended the perfect wine for it. I love the horses neck with and kick. I usually get the sockeye salmon and am never disappointed. Seed is our favorite restaurant. Don’t change a thing.

Five ladies chose Seed Kitchen to celebrate a friends birthday. Everything was excellent… the food the service the atmosphere! We brought a large cake the wait staff was very accommodating by putting the candles on, lighting the candles,cutting the cake and serving the cake at no charge.
We will definitely return for the next birthday celebration!

Everything from the food to the decor was exactly what I want in a restaurant. The food was a cut above and only rivaled by the wait staff! Thank you for an enjoyable dining experience. I plan to visit when I am on this side of town and would recommend to anyone.

Dinner was delicious as always. The Tuna Poke and the Flat Iron Special with cipollini onions were amazing. I do have to say Carmen's service was the best part of the evening. Thanks for a great time and meal.
