The General Muir Ratings and Reviews
Been to GM several times with the last two visits being very mediocre due to poor service. To begin, they should advertise that Sundays have a limited menu with a special Spaghetti/Meatballs 3-course menu with salad and dessert. My party stayed. Not crowded but service was slow. Took over 5 minutes for our server to greet us at our table. Once our order was placed, it was very hard to flag him down for more dressing, silverware, and water, as he poured wine and had conversations at other tables. Delivered cold fries with the corned beef and had to flag down another waiter to ask our waiter to come back to our table. Not very attentive to our needs at all. The food is very delicious but bad service, for me, trumps the food, especially when there are so many great restaurants in Atlanta where one can spend money.
Wow! The Pastrami and Corned Beef are made in-house and are simply mind blowing. The best I have ever had. Better than any NYC Deli, period. Both are exceptionally well paired with the house Creature Comforts Reclaimed Rye Ale. The Poutine was really good with the Corned Beef crumbles on it. Skip the coleslaw.
We dine at General Muir from time to time and typically have an enjoyable experience. It's not one of our few favorite go-to restaurants, but it's good and generally reliable. Our most recent visit was a family/friends gathering, and we forgot that the noise level could be quite high, which unfortunately somewhat diminished this experience. The smoked trout toast was particularly tasty. The duck, however, was on the tough side, which seems to be a risk when ordering duck in general. Even if you're not a big cheesecake fan, their NY style is a standout.
We've dined at TGM since they opened and their excellent food quality is consistent for dinner and brunch. I appreciate that they change up the menu seasonally. The salads are always outstanding and out of the ordinary. The salad was larger than I remember which was perfect to share and made it more palatable at $12. However, I never liked (and still don't) the unisex bathrooms.
We ate on a Sunday evening and it was their Spaghetti Prix Fix Menu. I certainly didn't drive all the way from Jasper, GA to eat Spaghetti at a Jewish Deli Style restaurant. Fortunately, they had a Matzoh Ball Soup and Pastrami sandwiches on the menu too or it would have been a disaster. I had recently taken my Mom there on a Saturday and they were closed to the public for a Bat Mizvah.
An absolute great experience from the minute we stepped in until we left. Fantastic service. The matzoh ball soup was rated a 10, as was the pastrami and the roasted chicken was excellent. My colleagues cannot wait to come back to Atlanta to dine here again and perhaps as one said breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Food was good. We were there on a Sunday night so it was a limited menu, but we still got what we wanted. What bothered me was the state of the restaurant. There was food littering the floor the whole time we were there and one of the bathrooms was totally destroyed. That inattention to detail is not good, especially on a night that was not busy.
Service was very bad...slow, indifferent, lack of care. Took forever to get wine and food to the table. Food was disappointing...soup returned, kale appetizer cold (probably because it wasn't delivered in timely manner), and fries not cooked properly. I doubt we will be back.
The corned beef was completely tasteless, like eating tender cardboard. The restaurant was listed among the top 50 restaurants in Atlanta by Atlanta Magazine. The food critic should be fired; he’s either corrupt or in competent.
Service was fine and ambience was okay. Still the food quality makes this the worst deli I ever experienced.
We have been to The General Muir on multiple occasions. The food is consistently good. When we want a burger, it's where we go and that's exactly what we both got on this visit. Be sure to ask for the side of fried pastrami to go on your burger (it use to come on the burger). It really takes it to the next level!
The group I was with liked their food. I thought there were very limited choices and I think the pastrami sandwich was very dry and the bread was just average (a surprise given that they have a bread bakery next door). I have to say that my overall dining experience was ruined when they wouldn't accommodate the special birthday cake we always get for all our children's birthdays. They wanted to charge 2 dollars per person for us to eat our cake. We decided to just take our cake. The obviously didn't refrigerate it as requested and left it next to something hot because all the frosting was melted off when we took it starbucks- who happily gave us plates and forks with our purchased coffee. I hope it was worth losing 12 dollars to ensure that we won't be back or recommend the restaurant to anyone else.
I have to say, their hamburger is one of the best I've ever had. The innovative cocktails were also an unexpected surprise. Lastly, the baked good (bought some to take home) were amazingly good and the pastrami was some of the best. This was a really nice dining experience!
Great food, one of our favorites in general (no pun intended) but last night was a special taco night with authentic Mexican tacos and our waiter/bartender was super cool and took good care of us. We love the general muir - haven't had a bad experience yet... and somehow I managed the restraint to not eat my slice of new York cheesecake after dinner, which I am about to enjoy. Right now.
Loved this place! Amazing burger - everything I'd heard about it was spot-on. Beautiful restaurant hidden away in a fairly quiet part of town. Delicious appetizers and desserts! If I had to provide any constructive criticism it would be 1.) please turn the music down a tad, and 2.) the menu was super small. I appreciate a small menu, but boy - this was small.
Food was very good, the staff friendly and helpful. There was some confusion over desert availability by the server; he misspoke regarding the cake selection and brought out the wrong cookie order. Other than that small hiccup, everything else was fine. The food selection is limited, so beware of the narrow choice options before heading over. But what they do serve, is very tasty.
