Great for date night. Exceptional service and food! Have a drink at the rooftop bar if possible. Great view!

Food was amazing - service was very medium. The hostess talked on the phone in front of us for 5 minutes before helping with our reservation. Also the valet took literally 30 minutes.

Service was really slow. Food was average - as in I do better steaks and fish on my Big Green Egg. I don’t mind a bone in my fish, but pulling out 10+ was distracting while trying to have a business conversation. I would not recommend Tiny Lou’s for a personal or business dinner unless you’re dining here for access to the rooftop.

The food and the service were both top notch. Got to be some of the best in Atlanta, however the noise level was unreal. Not much they can really do about it, but still worth eating there.

The food was terrific, but our server seemed a bit overwhelmed and it took almost 30 minutes to receive our entrees after our salads were cleared. Also, the fire alarm went off (seemingly for no reason), but that added to the confusion in the place. There are definitely kinks to be worked out here, but given the top-quality food, we'll certainly try it again.

Tiny Lou's is amazingly quaint. The food was lovely and the wine options were optimal. We had Beef TarTar, Oysters, and Escargot along with wine for an evening starter. Everything was tasty, my only downfall if any was the Oysters - the shucker got quit a bit of shell in the meat which made for a fun at table cleaning.
I would recommend this spot for a date night or business outing. The ambiance is dark and quiet, very cozy.

It’s wonderful to see the historic Clermont restored and finally opened. I enjoyed my Sunday Brunch at Tiny Lues; the staff is welcoming and accommodating; and decor is tastefully perfect - curved wood banisters, peach wallpaper, period b&w framed photos, art-deco floors.
The hotel furnishings are colorful period-funky. There is both valet and street parking.
Lest not forget the never-to-forget entertainment located deep, deep, deep down in the bowels of the Clermont. This place is simply FABULOUS!

Tiny Lou's is a great addition to the neighborhood. Our server Dave was incredible. He was very attentive, friendly, made awesome recommendations and went above and beyond to give my friend and I the best experience. We had cocktails and apps. Both were very tasty. I will say we were both disappointed in the value of the scallops dish, it's 2 scallops for $16.00. A smidge high in price, but they were seared to perfection. The rooftop bar of the hotel is a must for after dinner drinks. Will be back.

Went for dinner with the girlfriend. I got the steak frites. Very tender, but the meat and sauce lacked any flavor and came out at room temp. Just decided to bring the meat home to reheat for leftovers. Regarding the fries, they tasted just like McDonalds fries but without the salt. But at least those were hot I guess. Her lamb chops were the same...bland and cold. Will not be returning and would not recommend to anyone.

Our food was under-seasoned and cold throughout the night- the menu has a lot of potential. Our snails were gritty, the cheese needed salt. The $5 bread basket was good, but come on, do we need to charge for bread?? Our waitress was sweet, but the hostesses had their noses in the air.

Tiny Lou's is elegant but casual. It is a perfect place to be with friends, for a special occasion, or even for a business dinner. The service was great; the food was fantastic: they make the best bread with soft butter to spread on. I had the duck consomme, which is rich, comforting and with an unexpected combination of flavors.
The desserts have flavors and textures that are surprising and very pleasing to the palate. It is hard to choose which one is better.
I will definitely go back.

Great food, great ambience, great staff, great drinks, and a great location. Combine that with a bar above, the Clermont lounge below, and a rooftop bar, the beltline around the corner, what else could you want for a fun night?

Tiny Lou’s was excellent. Started with a drink on the rooftop - great view. Restaurant was cozy and seats were comfortable. Need to serve a Chardonnay at the rooftop bar. Had the scallop, snails and cheese brûlée appetizers. All delicious. Dinner of Trout and steak frites well executed. Steak frite sauce was fabulous. Asked for super crisp fries so they brought an additional plate. Chocolate dessert was both beautiful and tasty. Wine list was not extensive. Rose and Sancerre selections were lovely and priced reasonably.

Super cool vibe here. It's really exciting to have this beauty back to her glory. The Cleremont hotel restoration is fantastic. The restaurant service is a little too cocky for this diner's taste. They don't have champagne glasses for the bubbly they serve and when we asked about it, we received a curt reply that they only have one wine glass. And so it went...the food was uninspired. Give Tiny Lou's a minute to get it together but don't miss the cocktail lounge or the rooftop!

This is a review about BRUNCH. I say that because it was only their third one and perhaps some kinks still are being worked out. Our waiter was new and needed some education on their dishes. The food was good and has the potential to be outstanding.

For starters our waiter was extremely friendly and knowledgable about the menu. It’s not a large or complicated one. We were first uncomfortable about how he pushed us time wise to order . We assumed they had big parties arriving. I had to ask the waiter to give us 10 minutes to enjoy our cocktails. Our reservation was for 8:15pm. By the way, the restaurant was half empty by 9 30 when we left, on a Friday night. Bottom line food came in and steak was not temp perfect but what the heck , didn’t feel like anymore animosity. Ordered a glass of Saint Emilion. The temp of the wine was probably in the low 80s. Asked the waiter, he said they keep the bottles next to the kitchen. He then proceeded to place my glass of wine in the fridge for 5 minutes...my take is that the hotel had too much going on. Concentrate on the restaurant, the bar, the rooftop, Blondie, the hotel, and make some of them amazing....close what you can’t!

Food and ambiance were amazing. I had the lamb chops and they were perfect. We were celebrating a birthday and the staff made it fun but not over the top and uncomfortable.

The staff is still developing and working on learning the routine and menu items, and we found everyone to be very helpful and friendly.

It may have been an accidet of seating, we asked for a table cloase to the entrace, but we were seated next to a large birthdy party and the nose from that table just dominated the evening. The food was excellent, but the nose and energy was too much for us to talk and enjoy each other. All that said, I would like to try the roof top bar.

Visited for an important Birthday celebration..As an Interior Designer I can really appreciate the efforts of the design team in designing the restaurant and bar interiors but there are some shorfalls there. The dining are is extremely noisy due to the lack of soft surfaces, the lighting design does not really do justice to build on the theme, but overall it is a unique environment.
The stars here are really the food and the service which were both exceptional! Our waiter was very attentive without hovering...the menu is small in scope but well composed and our dishes were amazing and very well crafted. The menu is modestly price (especially in view of the quality and preparation) but, as is often the case, the wine list was very expensive in relation to the food offerings. We get the Bistro theme...but I would vote for tablecloths as
the brass trimmed laminate table tops felt like a diner interpretation!
I had the NC Poulet Rouge with Cepes and Polenta with Rapini / Bernaise on the side, my
wife had the French Onion Soup (as good as any she has ever had, even in Paris, and the Frisse/Lardon salad. All of the food was very well balanced, perfectly spiced..not too salty
and beautifully presented. I often cook Poulet Rouge but this is the first time eating it
in a Restaurant and it was exceptional, if just a wee bit undercooked.
We will definately re-visit for other dishes in the future...Love it!

I feel so lucky to have had the chance to have dinner here for Fourth of July. The service is tremendous both the food and the pastries are to die for. I have never seen such gorgeous desserts in my life. They have spent a lot of time and a lot of money paying attention to the details. We will be back.

It is too early to tell how this will go -we tried it in week three and ran into issues, but the team was willing to compensate us so we hope to have a better experience after they get more experience.

Food was eh. My husband ordered lamp chips that were delicious but my fish dish was quite bland and unexceptional. Side vegetables of asparagus and broccolini felt like they made the dressing/gravy from a cheap box mix. I don’t think we would come eat at Tiny Lou’s again. Valet service was horrendous and we waited for 20 minutes to have car brought around. Valets were in no hurry and very nonchalant when asked if the car was coming soon. Rooftop was charming and we would consider stopping for drinks only for that portion of the hotel. Overall, I was disappointed. I expected Cooks and Soldiers type food and hardly felt like we received more than a mediocre Outback’s Steakhouse meal.
