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.

    Happy to have scored a table on a busy Mother's Day. However, the limited menu for the holiday was a bit of a letdown. Great service from Russell our waiter. Very attentive. In fact, the whole staff was courteous time and time again from when wen entered, were taken to our table, and as we left.

    The steak was over cooked and over salted. Schnitzel wasn't seasoned very well. Maybe we got the short end of the stick by going on a Sunday.

    Went there for dinner on Mother’s Day with high hopes based on the many positive reviews. But … turned out to be a huge bust for us. Sub-par food served by a staff that seemed to be overly impressed with themselves and their establishment. The host was very rude and insulting when I asked if the outdoor seating was any quieter than the noisy indoor section. She treated me like I was a complete idiot for asking such a “stupid” question. Our server was nice enough, but not overly attentive and seemed distracted most of the time she approached our table. The room was maybe 2/3rds full. Two of us ordered the Schnitzel and it was overdone and bland as could be - on the order of shoe leather. The other person in our party had a pasta dish that sounded promising, but was about as flavorless as the Schnitzel. To each their own and plenty of folks love this place, but I was very underwhelmed and likely won’t be back.

    We went out for a date night in the Decatur Square, very happening area. When we entered the restaurant we saw the beautiful interior with a chill ambience! We chose to sit outside because the weather was gorgeous. The outdoor area was darling and had a bar and endearing decor. Our main issue with our experience was that the outdoor area was gravel and our table was on an incline so it was slightly hard to maneuver in and out and keep our glasses from spilling. Our waiter was great, he answered our questions, and was very attentive to us. The food was good, very nice portions. I had the Nc trout and my girlfriend has the ricotta gnocchi which had lamb. Overall a nice experience.

    Our server (Russell) did a GREAT job and was very attentive the entire evening. However, the restaurant 1/2 crowded and the hostess sat someone right next to us which was very annoying since they could have spaced us out a little so we were not on top of each other. It was very hard to have a private conversation with another table sitting practically right on top of us. Besides seating arrangement, we had a nice evening....food and service was exceptional.

    I think that White Bull has taken a step backwards in terms of service and food quality. Twenty minutes after ordering cocktails and still no drinks seems to be the rule now at many restaurants. The bread & butter starter was good as always and the pasta with pork ragu was good but not great. My wife’s pork schnitzel was dried out. The service issue is a real problem for many restaurants but top restaurants like White Bull need to do better.

    Waiter was pleasant but he forgot to put our appetizer order in. He comped it but they weren't that amazing. My friends and I ordered each pasta dish available. Half were so salty they were inedible. I got a replacement dish of pasta but again.... it wasn't that great for what it's billed to be. The man that the waiter asked to help my friends with their wine selection was kind of rude and testy. Won't be back.

    We come here often and love the food and service. Our only issue is the noise volume. Now that the tables are filled again, after the pandemic, you have to yell to speak. We kept saying “ what? Say that again” last night. Maybe some drop sound buffers from the ceiling?

    Excellent service. Outstanding food. Amazing pasta, cooked to perfection. Our server, Jonathan was amazing. We asked for the charcuterie board, but had missed it, as it’s only available until 6PM. (Our reservations were for 630PM). However, as soon as Jonathan heard it was my b’day dinner he spoke to the chef and delivered the charcuterie board. Amazing meats and cheeses. Had a fantastic dinner. Will definitely return in the near future. All the dishes are fresh and pasta is home made, cooked all dente. Had the black garlic pasta dish. Sooo Yummy.

    Absolutely one of my favorite places to go in town. Especially when I am feeling like some home-made pasta. They try new things and rotate out pastas regularly. I never got in and get the same pasta twice, its always something new, and often something surprising. The staff have always been amazing, and the service has been consistently solid. As long as I live here, I will always be a regular!

    We had a wonderful get-together for a friend visiting from out of state. Food and service were enjoyable and the back patio area is festive on a beautiful spring afternoon. Our only complaint was the six of us were spread around 2 round tables pushed together-which left two us in the gaps in between. Not sure why they didn't utilize the rectangular tables around the space. But that is a minor thing.

    We were really looking forward to this meal that it was a shame that our service was poor. Our waiter didn't even introduce himself, ask how we were doing, explain or show us the menu. He zipped through our whole dinner and barely said anything to us. It was really quite astonishing that this is the level of service at an establishment like this. The food was good and we enjoyed it. We just wished for a little bit more flavor but overall we can't complain. I think we would have enjoyed ourselves and had a better experience if our waiter was simply courteous and kind. Maybe he didn't care about us or our experience and if so, that's a shame. We didn't get upset nor we were rude...we just hoped the service would get better but it didn't. Better luck next time I guess.
