Welcome to Seven Lamps! The first of Chef Drew Van Leuvan"s creations, we feature fresh, local "craft" foods made with passion. We make just about everything from scratch, offering the highest quality with sizeable portions; think "elegant comfort" food. Our menu evolves with daily changes, and our cocktails mirror this fresh take. Come down to our corner that's tucked away in the Shops Around Lenox and be a part of the family.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
