We had so much fun. Our waitress was amazing. I forgot to get her name but we did our best man and bridesmaid proposal there and the waitress made it even more special. This is my second visit and each time I am very pleased with service. Thank you to our waitress who is one of the best we’ve ever had!!!!

My husband and I were in town for a quick birthday getaway. We chose South City Kitchen for a nice, romantic dinner. I wish I could say that it lived up to the hype. The food was just ok. The service was slow. Honestly, I think the server was ignoring us most of the time. Then, he asked for a tip over and above the 20% service fee the restaurant added on. The only truly enjoyable part was the free, personal size birthday dessert.

We were seated quickly, but the waitress barely gave my sister and me any attention. We consistently had to wave her down numerous times before actually getting any service when needed in such a small and empty area where we were seated. She gave us food with no utensils to eat with, and when I did receive something to eat with my fork was aggressively bent out of shape that I couldn't eat with it. I had to send my mimosa back three times because something was floating in it. I ordered the Salmon with green beans and the beans were not very tasty as I expected; However, the salmon was delicious. This was my very first time at this particular location and I have nothing but a great experience when dining at the Buckhead location. I really expected the same from Midtown when originally recommended. Maybe next time...

Wasn't happy that the menu was limited to the Easter Brunch menu, but what was offered was very delicious. The restaurant wasn't crowded and we were seated as soon as we walked in 15min before our reservation.

The best vegetables I have had at a restaurant here in town. The other entrees were so tasty and perfectly cooked. Salad greens with benne seed were awesome.

Only issue is the rum selection, which didnt include any higher end brands.

Delicious food, great service! The fried chicken is special. We ordered the brisket spoon bread for the table, it was good, but not better than their fries green tomatoes. Plates run between $24-50, so it's def not cheap, but it was def delicious!

Great experience overall. The food was excellent. I tried the fried chicken, and definitely recommend. The complimentary biscuits and cornbread are a nice touch (and tasty!). I visited during lunch time on a Saturday, and perhaps it got too busy at one point, but it took a very long time for me to get my check. I'm doubt that's a chronic issue though. Overall, I'd go back here and recommend it if you're in Atlanta!

This was my second visit to South City Kitchen and the food and drinks did not disappoint. However, our waitress wasn't the best. One person in our party asked about substituting an ingredient in a dish and rather than just say they couldn't, her reply was kind of snarky. Additionally, I asked about bread for the table because we hadn't received any yet, and she quickly replied with a bit of an attitude "You don't have bread because we're waiting on it." Had she communicated this initially, I would not have had a reason to ask. I will visit again, but I'd hope that the service is a bit better. I'm always kind to whoever assists me when I patronize a business/restaurant and I expect the same in return.

Our server, Jenifer C, was OUTSTANDING! This has been our first date in over three months and Jenifer made it a wonderful experience. She was very knowledgable about the dishes and her recommendations - the cobia, the pork chops, and the crab cake appetizer - were spot on.
