Great food as usual and service expertise. Very consistent for this every time we visit whether for a date or with friends or entertaining professional occasions.

Though wish it wasn’t still Madagascar though this month again.

Wondering if The Consulate ever does an English/UK menu month in the past or plan to in the future.

Many expats attending will be from the 2 powerful countries and TCKs of British and American and current colony countries of the UK e.g. Canada and Australia. And/or former colonies such as Hong Kong & India. Further those are very common mixed race people attending and the marketing strategy for the restaurant.

I have reviewed this elsewhere- I love this restaurant. The ambience is clubby- in a nice way. Our waitress was well informed and attentive. Our food was excellent- several dishes stopped our conversation to savor the moment. We were visited by the chef- who was charming. Can't say enough good things.

Our waiter Mike this past Saturday as a group of 6 of us all attended the Consulate for the first time, was amazing! We ordered everything he suggested and enjoyed every last plate presented and even ordered seconds. Absolutely one of the best culinary experiences I've enjoyed here in Atlanta, if not the world!

I'm sure I speak for us all when I say we will most certainly be back.

This place is really incredible and has a great concept in the way they actively change their menu/cuisine every 90 days. The decor is fantastic, with original pieces of art everywhere. Drinks were great as was the food. Only (minor) gripe I would say is the servings are on the smaller end for what you’re paying for the but the quality is well above par so I guess that makes up for it. I definitely recommend trying a lot of dishes as they have a wide spread and all of it was delicious!! Waitress also provided outstanding service! Will 100% be coming back.

The place was hard to find. The decor was good, dry picturesque. Cocktails were amazing. Food was over cooked for a number of our dishes.. But service was excellent.. would recommend
for drinks not for a dinner.

The main dish took over 45 minutes to come out and it was the wrong item. The waiter punched the wrong button on the electronic tablet. They promised to redo it but after another 20 minutes it was still not ready and so after 90 minutes of first arriving we asked them to box it to go. Instead of the correct order to go, they gave us a cold appetizer that was terrible. The other main dish was sea bass that was good but tiny portion for the money. It is supposed to be a good restaurant and perhaps they had a bad night, but we will not be returning.

I truly apologize. and yes, Chris your server was having a really bad day. He will not be taking any more tables until he can be more focused. I will be privately sending you my personal information so we can show you why we are so highly regarded. Our team works extremely hard to provide STELLAR dining experiences here. We worked hard to be a 4.8 here, and due to Chris's missteps, we are back to 4.7. We take this VERY seriously.

The consulate is a great spot with a very cool ambiance, delicious food, great craft cocktails, and overall just a great spot for a date. My favorite items on the resident menu (menu that doesn’t change) is the okra, the korean BBQ duck, Havana egg-rolls, and the burger!

This was one of the best, if not the best, restaurant experience I've had in Atlanta (I've been here for 5+ years). The concept was phenomenal, the service was exceptional and the food/drinks were so different but amazing. They feature a different country's cuisine every 90 days or so and it was Morocco when we went. I would 100% recommend trying it out.
