Farm-to-table
The White Bull is a farm-forward restaurant utilizing only GA grown products. Chef Pat Pascarella gives respect to his Italian culture by milling his own grain for both our house made bread and house made pasta. We feature local farms all over the menu, such as; cheeses, honey, meats, vegetables and fish.
Ernest Hemingway once named a blank piece of paper "The White Bull." Welcome to our blank canvas.

The place is hip and cool to visit. Prices too high for every day dining. Went on mother’s day and couldn’t order off menu which is why we selected it in the first place. Got a phone call about the set menu after reserving a table. Some of food served that day were outstanding while other dishes were disappointing. Roots and fruits had only one fruit and very few roots. Dessert to die for!

Food was superb with very good service. Disappointing that even with reservations made well in advance we were seated on backless stools for our two hour dinner. This made our leisurely meal with appetizers and dessert less enjoyable than we would have hoped.

LOUD but with good energy , friendly service and interesting menu. Even though known for homemade pasta it is not Italian, it is not exactly farm to table, or vegatarian but has aspects of all. Server will probably have to expand on most of the small and daily changing menu.

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner. Reservations were pretty easy to get and I was looking forward to this. We are NOT let down. The food changes almost daily, so I won’t go into full detail on what we got BUT, everything we had was top notch.
The server was FABULOUS. Hand crafted custom cocktails, appetizers (baby carrots & crudo) were so amazing. I had the striped bass and it was so buttery, nice and crispy skin. Absolutely perfect. My boyfriend had the chicken and it needed just a touch of salt but it was also delicious.
Dessert was panna cotta with lemon curd & tres leches cake.
All I have to say is I wish I could spend every cheat day here... just go. Everything was exceptional and the manager was so nice! Just take my money, can’t wait to go back!

We had a great dinner at White Bull. The wine list was good but not too overwhelming. I really liked my pasta and so did my date. I highly recommend the tres leches cake for dessert. If I had any complaint it would be that the noise level was high but it was a Saturday evening in Decatur so I wasn't too surprised.

The service here was good! Our waitress was very nice. The food, however, was so bad. We came for Sunday brunch and had such high hopes based on other reviews and word on the street. I got the egg in a hole and the croissant was burned to a crisp, the sausage still had gristle on it, and it was flavorless. My sister got the shrimp and grits and the egg was basically raw. She sent it back and got a new one with the egg cooked rock hard. My boyfriend got the burger and said it was fine but the meat was dry. He also got orange juice which was $4, tasted like Gatorade, and had ice in it??? The coffee tasted like water. None of us liked our food and we are really not the kind of people to not like food. Super high expectations and they were DASHED against the rocky shoals of disappointment. Alas.

Simply put, White Bull was one of the best meals I've had in Atlanta in recent memory. Pastas, bread service, and the meat entrees are all exceptional. Service was excellent, and the manager came to personally introduce himself in a way that was appreciated and not irritating. We're going back with friends next week for a polenta party (!). This spot has turned over repeatedly over the years, and if White Bull doesn't last there's no justice in Atlanta's food scene. Top notch.
