The front hostess was extremely polite and very thorough with her information about the restaurants procedures and menu. I was led to my section and felt like i was visiting a friends home. Our server was phenomenal! She knew exactly what would fit my needs as a vegetarian. There was not one time did i ever feel like i needed anything while i was there. My meal was just at $105.00 with the gratuity of 20% already added into the meal. I felt like it was well worth the money and time spent on a Saturday evening. I have always enjoyed this location with our company holiday parties that we have here, as well as the many weekends i continue to enjoy South City Kitchen.

Lovely place. Food was excellent. Went just for the shrimp and grits and it did not disappoint. Restaurant was clean, service was great, and the warm cornbread and biscuits tasted homemade and fresh out the oven. Loved this lunch dining experience!

I had a great time at South City Kitchen! They sat us shortly after we arrived, the waitress was super sweet, and the food was delicious! The ambiance felt upscale with a down-home flavor. It was a nice, chill, ending to my 40th birthday. I would definitely come back.

Jay was very attentive with our party of 13. The best waitress ever!!! I was displeased to hear that my guests had to pay a alcohol charge fee for simply buying alcohol. That was not mentioned to me on the several occasions that I called regarding my reservation and I was very unhappy with those sneaky charges. In the future please make people aware of all of the different charges that will be applied to their final bill.

We usually love this place and came for my husband‘s 50th birthday. He loves bourbon so we were excited about enjoying our drinks. Regrettably our drink experience was not great at all. It may have been related to the pandemic we aren’t sure but it was extremely disappointing. We mostly come for the drinks and atmosphere which also was disappointing this time. Normally we love this place but maybe the pandemic has changed it some.

Parking was hard to find. My reservation was at 1:30, I arrived at 1:37, I was seated at 2:05 after a number of walk-Ins. Our waitperson came at 2:15, and we received food at 2:30. Food was delicious and service after receiving the food. Great food, good value.

I always enjoy dining at South City Kitchen. We stayed at a hotel just down the street, so we walked to the restaurant. Granted with COVID hours, the restaurant did not open until 10AM, but it was definitely worth the wait.
We were pleasantly greeted at the front door and were promptly seated upstairs with a nice view of Buckhead Atlanta.
Our waitress was fast and attentive, and had a wonderful personality. She never fluttered around our table too long and was quick to answer questions or attend to any issues we had.
The food arrived in a timely manner and was delicious. I thoroughly enjoy Atlanta's dynamic dining scene, and always love to see some of the more seasoned restaurants continuing to thrive with their ever-changing menus, and South City Kitchen is no exception.
For under $50, we had a delightful breakfast with a very personable staff serving us, and were finished in less than an hour. We could not have asked for more.

First time at this restaurant. It was for my Mothers birthday. Glad we chose this as they had different flavors of the season to offer from drinks to dishes. They also had traditional dishes as well. Our server was as much a part of making our experience great as she took great care to explain dishes as well as ensure that food allergies were noted to the kitchen and bartender. All in all please go. Ask to sit upstairs to enjoy the view this establishment has to offer to diners!

Everything went well except for the gentleman who seated us. He came across as a jerk. He pretty much told us that they were assessing a 20% gratuity before we were even seated. Because I was there with my boss I didn't push back but I thought how arrogant to just assume that we would be ok with that. If I was by myself I would've pushed back on this.

It was nice ... however I think they should have opened another wall to have more air flow. Another issue, there are two levels and we definitely got exposed to the “down draft” from the people sitting directly above us.

My husband and I came for an 8:30 PM reservation on a Saturday night and were pleased to see the restaurant was respecting social distancing requirements.
We were seated in a small area upstairs which we liked as it was quiet and cozy.
Our waitress was Kiera and she was very attentive and friendly throughout our whole meal.
My husband had the butcher steak, which he loved! I ordered the fried chicken and subbed the sides for mac & cheese and Brussels sprouts. The chicken was a bit on the dry side but the skin was extra crispy and delicious. The entrées are quite large so a great value for your money and complementary biscuits and corn muffins are phenomenal!
We will be returning to try some other entrées.
