    It was good , I loved the fried chicken, it was soft but still crispy it was the perfect mix, and it came on top of mac and cheese which was good, and I highly recommend their truffle fries, and my girlfriend loved the sushi from there

    We used a coupon to eat at Thrive. The service was good and the appetizers (including the sushi pot stickers) were tasty. However, the main course (tuna burger and fries) was adequate and not as well cooked as other similar restaurants.

    The restaurant tables, chairs, and menus are all dilapidated and need replacement. They told me they ran out of parking stickers and so I ended up paying an extra $16 for parking that was advertised as validated parking.

    They did not have a lot of items on the menu - the waiter mentioned that 1 of the refrigerators was broken. No vegetables were available, no grits...they just did not have many of the items we wanted and with an already limited menu it made it a little frustrating. However, the food they did have that we ordered was very good. The appetizers and the sushi was also really tasty &amp; flavorful.

    The hostess was starting at her phone and when I arrived she didn't notice I was there for several minutes. The atmosphere felt cold, sushi wasn't available because the chef was out. My server was friendly but the food was so-so.

    I was at thrive for a team lunch whist visiting Atlanta. The service was very good and the restaurant clean. I’m the food was good but I felt there was too much use of sauce, especially on my sushi dish. That’s my only feedback.

    I went for my mom’s birthday. Nobody looked at our reservation to see that we were celebrating a birthday and I had to ask about birthday celebrations eventually because they never acknowledged it. When I asked they said the kitchen was closed at 4pm. The condition of the restaurant was also poor and when we requested to sit at a booth that had seats without giant holes in them we were treated as if we had asked something outlandish. The menu also didn’t match what was on the website. I won’t be returning.

    The food took SO LONG! There were only maybe 3-4 tables in the entire place on a Monday evening at 6:30. We ordered calamari which was okay but it took almost 40 minutes for rolls. My daughter’s roll had a plastic wrapper in it that she could have choked on. The tempura in my roll was burned. They didn’t have any salad dressing for my salad. Like what was going on? It was such slow service. An hour and a half for that. NEVER coming back. Clearly this is a drinks before Phillips arena place and that’s it! And I don’t even know if the drinks are good. It was just a horrible experience. It was her birthday and she was apologizing for picking the spot. We told her it wasn’t her fault. She wanted to come into the city for sushi and it seemed decent. We dine out a lot and I’m telling you, this is NOT it! I rarely write lengthy reviews but this needed to be said. Horrible!!!

    It was our first visit to Thrive, chosen because we were making a short trip into the city and wanted a good dinner; the reviews online sold us and we booked a table. When we arrived at the time of our reservation, we were instructed it would take a few minutes to clear and set our table, which was no problem. The staff seemed overwhelmed. While they remained courteous, they were clearly stressed. The restaurant was full and everything seemed to be running unusually slow. We had reservations for 6:45pm and were not seated until 7:10pm behind a group of walk-ins who had a smaller group but were given a larger table. When I called them out on this, the hostess turned it back on me. I could tell she was stressed, so I didn't make a big deal out of it and we took the smaller table. I still suspect that in her busyness she simply overlooked us and seated the other party without thinking. Our waitress was very friendly and nice but rarely came to the table. We finally ordered nearly an hour after arriving and asked if we could have our meal served quickly as we had another engagement following. The food came out within a reasonable time and was very good. By the time we left, the restaurant had nearly emptied but we still had to ask for refills of water and for our check. Maybe it was an off night, with a larger than usual rush but we were left with the impression that it was simply managed poorly. The food, while delicious, wasn't so much better than other similar style restaurants with lower prices. We probably won't return and wouldn't think of it as a recommendation when asked about good spots in Atlanta.

    The calamari should not have been brought to the table! It appears and tasted like it was cooked the day before! The burger was ok but the salmon burger was cold. Maybe this was because we got there right before the kitchen closed!

    Well for starters our reservation was 5:30 we arrived 5:05 and were immediately seated . The hostess was pleasant but she kept forgetting to check on us , she forgot our ordered on 2 separate occasions and was unavailable when it came to our drinks . She charged us for things we didn’t order and didn’t take off the items she messed up . The overall scenery and ambiance is great . It definitely gets loud once people come in and you can’t hear yourself engage in conversation with your table of people .
