Food was good and atmosphere really cool and cozy. Server just ok. Charcuterie board for the table had only 2 pieces of bread, which would have been fine if our server brought us a bread basket like the other tables had. Sadly, she was MIA most of the night

Myself and two friends had a drink at the bar and dinner at the restaurant. I’m vegetarian so we ordered the fried green tomatoes and the scallops at the waiters suggestion. I think his name was Josh was amazing he also suggested a dessert I think it was called Angel pie and it was impeccable we had a blast and would definitely go back!

We had another fantastic meal and we had the same server, Amy. She was very knowledgeable about the food and cocktail menu and was very friendly. This is the second time we have had the pleasure of sitting at her table and she makes us want to come back.

Really enjoyed our evening. The staff was exceptional. ChiChi, (not sure about the spelling) was delightful and very helpful, explained the dishes and what a great personality. The food was also exceptional. The quail was so good. We will definitely be back.

Food is underwhelming for the price. Potatoes weren’t cooked all the way and honestly the avocado toast at First Watch is way better and the bacon was stringy and not crispy or even good quality for what you charge. 2nd time there and both times been underwhelmed by the food.

Great as usual. However our boxed food was missing the 2 very large pieces of chicken we had left over. My daughter landed at 10:30pm from Florida so we brought leftovers for her. No chicken. Disappointing for sure! We only were sent the mashed potatoes and collards. Where is our chicken?

The food was really presented well but did not taste that good at this location. Even the tea was really bad. My girlfriend had exact meal at other location and loved it, but didn’t even finish same item at this location. Tasted overly smoky or burnt. Shame.

Usually the food is well prepared and delicious, but for some reason today our she-crab soup was barely warm and thick tasting. My salmon was good, but all I got was broccoli with it and that was not hot...ugh... for the price a small bit of potato/corn something with starch to go with it.
Service was great...wonderful waiter.

All five of us all did not enjoy the food all for different reasons. I would say who ever is running the kitchen is not doing a good job. Most of us had our food over cooked. My son had french fries with his grilled chicken and even those were mixed between uncooked and cooked fries. Everyone was friendly but the food is not great.

I selected South City Kitchen for dinner with a business associate based on how well I liked the mid-town South City kitchen. The Avalon restaurant has a much newer feel than the midtown location, but just as good menu. Convenient location that is local to office, I'll be back.
