The restaurant’s unique name comes from an extended essay by English art critic John Ruskin. The "lamps" refer to the seven principles of architecture: sacrifice, truth, power, beauty, life, memory and obedience. Inspired by the essay, Co-owner and Executive Chef Drew Van Leuvan recognized that these important principles are also very applicable in the kitchen as he "builds" plates.

They served me the best tasting fish entree I’ve ever had. Ever! The Carolina Flounder.
The ambiance was very appealing and chic, and my server had great hospitality, always topped my water off throughout the meal.
My Old Fashion was spot on, and even the dessert was masterfully executed. I will certainly be back with guests next time.
Seven Lamps never ceases to impress me. I’ve been for lunch meetings and date nights, and it’s perfect for either. This last meal solidified it as one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta. The food is phenomenal, the waiters are knowledgeable and kind, and the drinks are second to none. Highly recommend the duck confit small plate and the Fitzgerald drink (if you like gin).
We reserved an outdoor table a week ahead but only a small round table was available when we arrived. That would be fine for cocktails but not for a party of 4 for dinner. Food was excellent but selection is very limited. We waited for more than 5 minutes after being seated before our server showed up to greet us.
Horrible service, poor food. We would never return
It was my birthday, there were some pro’s and many con’s.
Pro’s: they gave us a 15% discount for my birthday, a free dessert and glass of wine.
The food was good enough.
Con’s: The service was the worst I’ve experimented in Atlanta (I’m here for about a month only). The appetizer took one hour to arrive. They confused the main plates for other two that we never even talk about. The waiter was not even worried in letting us know what happened. They were in a hurry to make us leave the restaurant, since we had reservations for 9pm and the appetizer arrived at 10pm we were still with dessert at almost 11pm.
A very unusual thing happened, I asked the waiter about the restrooms and he let me know were they where. He even accompanied me, but he entered the restroom before me and stayed for a while (one person per restroom kind). So I had to wait for him to use the men’s room. In the meantime another man from the kitchen arrived and went directly to the ladies room... even knowing I was there waiting. It was at least strange.
We sat out on the patio. Service was great and it was quiet. We've sat inside before and it tends to be noisy. The food was outstanding and Chef Drew came out to see how our meal was. We will definitely be back soon!
The food is always great, but the service can be hit or miss. We were seated outside and waited for some time to be greeted. The party seated well after us were served before we were. Not sure if the waiter didn’t know we were there, but he eventually came. He didn’t seem to want to be there. Maybe he wanted to be cut and was upset he got seated. He forgot my salad, the wine glasses were dirty. Overall it was not to the level reflected in the prices. We love the food, but not always the service, or lack thereof.
Great vibes on the patio but b/c chef had to prepare vegan meal as there was nothing on the menu, it was quite dear but was very good.
Seven Lamps is one of my new fav restaurants. I've been about 5 times in the last 3 months but this was the only time I wasn't pleased with my food. Two days prior I came and had the Flounder and it was delicious! I came back and it just wasn't consistent. The tempura batter was thick so I just peeled it off and ate the fish without it. I'm not discouraged, I hope it was just a mistake because I love the lobster bun as well so I'll be back again.
I always love going to Seven Lamps. The food is unique but always tasty, the people are always so nice and very knowledgeable, and the ambiance is phenomenal. Great for business lunch/dinner, date nights, or a quick bite and a drink after shopping. LOVE this place.
Food was good. Service started out great then fell behind as it got more crowded. Somewhat overpriced.
Getting a table was easy. The menu is updated daily. While the prices were moderate to high the food quality was excellent. The wait staff were attentive and the food came out as ordered and fast. Overall I would recommend 7 Lamps and hope to try it again
The bar manager was awesome! He did all the work our server should have done. Really aggressive service from the secondary bartender/server. Food was good as usual
Excellent service, excellent food.
Felt welcomed by friendly staff. Very nice environment. Enjoyable.
Springer Mountain Farm Chicken Breast was flavorful and moist. Scottish Salmon was well done and tender. Good service. The only negative thing was it was soooo noisy.
The Sunday brunch menu is fabulous! I had Johnny Cakes, blue crab avocado toast and the Love Potion cocktail. We sat outside and had a wonderful time!
Brunch was great! Sean was quite attentive and friendly. The specialty cocktails were divine.
This was our first visit and we were very pleased. We sat next to really nice folks at the communal bar table and enjoyed the conversation. Food was a little pricey but terrific. Drinks were inventive. Ambiance was energetic and casual. Liked the dog friendly patio as an option when the weather is warmer.
Best seafood that I can remember having at any restaurant .
Just so-so. Service was great1 good was not- duck was pretty good- broccoli was to be roasted and it was more boiled and super soggy. The gnocchi HD sat for a while before brought to the table as the cheese was dried up and not in a good way.
Great dining experience outside under the heat lamps. Acoustics inside a little noisy.
The service was Great, the ambience Fair, the food Good. Nice place to meet friends for lunch.
Very excellent restaurant, we had an awesome waitress! The food was mind blowing. We will be back
Good place to go with a large party! Good cocktails
The food is absolutely stellar. Fresh and delicious. I love the salads with chicken. Tuna melt is really good. Service is good, but they seem short staffed. Also, the music is way too loud to have much conversation, you have to tell over. Otherwise, I really love everything else about this place. I go there regularly.
We sat on the patio for lunch and it was fantastic. The food was great, as usual. I switched it up and got the gnocchi and it was fantastic. Several got their usual lunch open faced tuna. Perfect day fir a patio lunch with great food.
Love this place! Great service & always delicious. Have been here probably 10 times, always so good. Fun cocktails too!
Great food and great service
Horrible experience at Seven Lamps. Rude hostess and even ruder manager. Our waiter took forever to take our orders and the food came out super late. Defintely will not return to this establishment nor will I recommend to friends or associates.
Great time! Good tasteful food! Great service
Great time. Inside of restaurant gets very loud
Every time we dine here we are pleased with the incredible service and unique and delicious food. The outdoor seating area is my favorite place to dine (weather permitting) as the inside dining area can be quite noisy on a weekend night. Great cocktails too!
Nice surprise! We ordered several dishes and they were all great. The lobster bun is really good.
Main dish was very very good. Food was tasty, well prepared, well presented, good portion.
Only thing bland was the dessert, had panacotta. Tasteless.
Main room very noisy, ended up sittingboutside by fireplace, nice.
I had remembered the food being a little better but perhaps the mortadella macarons affected my perception of the whole meal. They were described as sweet/savory but were far to the sweet size. Food runners were quick, and was the food itself.
Love the food and drinks here. The lobster roll wasn't as delicious as normal (love it when it is heated), but everything else was awesome as usual.
Gnocchi was excellent. Delightful salad . Amazing cocktail. Shelby my waitress made perfect recommendations that made a memorable meal
I LOVE this place. One of my favorite restaurants ever. Be sure NOT to skip on the Lobster Bun because it was love at first bite for me.
This is a local favorite of ours. Especially love sitting outside. Don't miss the roasted Brussel sprouts. Also love the hamburger -- it's not on the menu, just ask for it
Very loud and hard to hear
