About

Earnest Hemingway once named a blank piece of paper “The White Bull”. The blank page excited him. He realized that with every new blank page came another opportunity to express himself with words that changed people’s lives forever, we are translating this philosophy to our concept and menu to obtain the same result.

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.

We were celebrating good news from recent medical tests. Many of our friends had told us this farm to table restaurant was fabulous so we went. We met the owners, the chefs, and had a very knowledgeable server. The food was delicious. We had a beautiful evening.

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.

I went to White Bull last week for a girl's night out. The ambiance and the service was amazing. It's a cute little place with tables pretty close together. Our waiter was very attentive and super helpful in explaining the menu.

We had a fried cheese appetizer (forgot the Italian name on all of these dishes so sorry in advance) that was very tasty, and the waiter recommended a pasta flight (try 3 of the 5 pasta dishes on their menu) for $30 if we wanted to get a taste of a few different types of their homemade pasta. We didn't care much for two of the three (one was a spinach/broccolini dish--a little boring, and the other was a tomato sauce with pulled beef--needed more salt) because they were a little bland. Our favorite was the squid ink pasta (highly recommend).

Overall, the food was okay. We had some good and some OK, but I'd definitely come back to try a few more dishes.

Meal - Breakfast on a weekend. First impressions - great restaurant layout and vibe in the heart of Decatur town square. A lot of ship lap decor, with a community dining feel. Our server was delightful. From New Zealand or Australia as I recall. The menu is fresh farm to table and I loved my meal. Original menu items, and details are lovely - top notch presentation in terms of utensils, glassware, plating. I will be going back for dinner soon.
