Food and service are always very good to excellent. Masks required of staff and customers except when eating and drinking. Mostly good social distancing though it was better when people could and did eat on patio. More people are eating indoors now and that's good because Southern Bistro will make it through this pandemic.

This was our first time, and we were very pleased. In fact, we’ve been looking for a neighborhood go to like this. Even though we live further south, and Buckhead, we look forward to coming back. The macaroni was fantastic.

We showed up to our 730 reservation at 720. Was seen by 2 people, they actually looked at us, yet no one acknowledged our presence. We did not get a greeting or a "we'll be with you in a second" nothing! So, at 725, after waiting unacknowledged for 5 minutes, we walked out. Will not return. We did not feel welcomed.

Service was very good and attentive and helpful when asking questions about the food items. Some of the items needed more seasoning. Best dishes were the qual and scallops
Perfect neighborhood place, you could see people were regulars

Food and service was awesome. Only reason for four stars was due to how hot the restaurant was. I’ll be back though!

It was a nice respite on a Saturday night after all the craziness. Todd was attentive and let us finish our very good martinis before bringing us dinner. The prime rib special was perfectly prepared and hubby’s chopped steak was delicious.

I had the fried chicken (fried chicken breast). The crust was delicious, perfectly cooked but the chicken was rubbery. I’ve read that lower quality chicken is rubbery like the chicken sandwich at Popeye’s. Very disappointing. My wife had the salmon which she really liked.

Fabulous place for brunch and the food was amazing as well the service! I enjoyed it so much. There was nothing bad about my experience and I’m a VERY picky person when it comes to food and critiquing service. The staff were on point and the pimento cheese grits were fantastic! I am for sure going back!

The food was ok but not good enough for the price. Brussels were great, but the chicken in my chicken marsala was chewy. The waiter had his mask under his nose the whole night. The patio felt safe with tables spread far apart.

Met a new friend here for dinner. We sat on the patio. The server,Clare, was very attentive and didn’t mind us hanging out after our dinner while we talked. Food was good, a bit overpriced in my opinion but not too bad.

Wonderful menu, all meals well prepared and presented, good value for dishes that might be much more expensive intown. Attentive service, knew when to leave us alone. Good value drinks and wine. It's in a shopping center so there's only so much you can do with ambiance, you can see the bar and TVs from the dining room.
