I usually eat at the Avalon location so I was expecting a great experience. Service was slow even though we ordered apps, main, and dessert at the start. We didn’t get our bread until after we got our main course. 2 out of the 3 main courses lacks seasoning. I was shocked because I’m used to south city kitchen food being amazing! We waited so long for our desserts. The banana bread pudding was waaay too sweet.

We tried to add two more people to our 6 top the day of. We were told they were completely booked. When we got there they were about 50% booked and by the time we left we were the only ones there. Not to mention there was an empty 4 top right across from us that could have easily been moved to add the extra people. We were in the corner so it wouldn’t have been in the way. Besides that service was exceptionally slow. Took 45 mins for my friend to get her glass of wine and our food took over an hour. Luckily we weren’t in a hurry. Will not back back any time soon.

We were skeptical what with the limited menu, but they did not disappoint. Our server Jaye was engaging, knowledgeable & accommodating. I had small plates, which weren't that small. The she crab soup was over seasoned with Old Bay & a tablespoon of visible crab so skip that. But the fried green tomatoes were perfection (a little salt don't hurt nothing & don't forget to ask for hot sauce if that's your flavor palate)! But the star of the show was the chicken livers!!!! OMG!!!! Enough for an entree (I had leftovers) & perfectly pan seared & sauced with corn. I will come back again & get this as a takeout order on its own! The drinks were expertly crafted & plenty potent if not a tad bit smaller than I would have liked. The "hubbin" had the strip steak which was cooked perfectly & the pork belly appetizer. All in all, we went with low expectations & were pleasantly surprised overall. Not a special occasion spot, but a good casual dining experience. Outdoor dining was breezy but the street noise from Peachtree is to be considered.

We were a little disappointed. We have been to the midtown location several times, but this is the first time we visited Buckhead location. We began with the biscuits and corn muffins. They were EXCELLENT as usual. We shared fried green tomatoes which were good, and the Parmesan crusted corvina. The Parmesan had a burnt taste and the fish was a little over cooked. The turnips and mustard greens had a vinegar tossed in that overpowered the vegetables. The desserts were so-so. The Mississippi mud was good. I was just expecting it to be more rich. The strawberry cake had great potential. The cake part was moist and had great flavor. The white chocolate whipped ganache was also great. The roasted strawberry jam ruined it for me. It just had too many sweet components. I think it could have benefited from fresh strawberries. They automatically added 20% gratuity to our check (for 2). I truly don’t mind this when we receive the service that is expected for such a restaurant. Our server, however nice, just wasn’t very attentive. I ran out of water twice and had to ask for refills and he never came to check to see if we needed anything during our meal. Just not up to the standards I normally expect from South City Kitchen. Next time we will definitely be going back to midtown.

We had Saturday brunch at South City Kitchen Buckhead and everything was amazing. We were out-of-towners eating there for the first time! The restaurant and ambiance is beautiful. We sat outside where there is an overhead and somewhat closed in room but you were still able to feel the fresh air and outside interactions. The waiter was great and nice. The food was amazing and served timely which was appreciated.

Wasn’t the best service, had to refill my guests water at times. Waiter made it a point to tell us his pay rate and the service charge, which definitely wasn’t warranted if you’re going to visit an establishment like this.

My father flew down from NY to visit for the weekend so we went to one of my favorite atlanta place and in particular I love this location. Did not disappoint! Service was exceptional (krystal our waitress was especially attentive) food was perfect. We had 2 pescatarians and one with celiac and they were able to modify and recommend easily. What a great night!
