South City Kitchen Vinings Ratings and Reviews
The most important part -- the food was good -- we had redfish and a trout dish. Both were very good. Not outstanding, but no complaints at all. However ...
When we first arrived the hostess was completely non-responsive. When she did acknowledge us, it was just to look at us. No "good evening" or "welcome" or any expression like that. We felt like we were an annoyance to her.
The dining room was very loud.
And the main course was brought much too quickly to the table. We had not even finished the salad which we split, so not even a full salad each.
We came in with an infant and a toddler. They both broke down despite our attempt at an early dinner. The manager not only intervened in multiple ways to keep us and other diners happy, they also comped our drinks after observing our stress, commenting, “looks like you could use a break.” Wow, what hospitality and generosity. Definitely a top 5 destination for us. Thank you! Oh, and the service and food were amazing.
Outstanding food, super attentive service (someone was right there every time a refill was needed) and wonderful ambience make this place a family favorite. Entrees we ordered were the trout, pork chop, and shrimp & grits, all of which were A++ scrumptious and beautifully presented. The shrimp and grits were the best we have enjoyed at any establishment, anywhere, ever. Go!
Our server was very friendly and a pleasure to work with. As always, the food was excellent. I wish the crab hash was on the menu like it used to be. That was a great signature dish for day and evening. It was a little loud in the Vinings location and I usually prefer the Midtown.
Came here for brunch on NYE. This is my second time visiting. I enjoyed the cranberry mimosa and ordered the Springer Chicken and Waffle; the food here is good! Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. They offer complimentary valet parking which was great as it was very cold. I’ll definite be back again. The menu is a mildly priced for traditional brunch items but the food is worth it!
I had an enjoyable dining experience there this past Sunday which had a bustling crowd for Sunday brunch. My only regret is that the kitchen ran out of collard greens! This is the South! You can't run out of a staple on a Sunday! The kitchen tried to make it up to me by offering a side of stew. I declined politely and asked for the kale salad. That was sufficient but I still missed the collard greens. The trout was SUPERB and I will definitely get that again the next time I am there. Please keep that on the menu and keep collard greens in stock.
I used to frequent the South City Kitchen Vinings restaurant often until I felt that the food quality started declining. I've gone for brunch and ordered the chicken and waffles. the chicken was lukewarm and not crispy more on the Soggy side. I just recently went and ordered the lump crab cake hash. the hash was horrendous. I could not identify what was the potato what was the ham and some other object that worked over cooked and over-seasoned. the crab cake was mushy with no lump of crab visable. I had to send it back and it came back the exact same way. Horrible. I have also visited the South City Kitchen in Buckhead and have a much better dining food quality experience with the dance exact dishes. Unfortunately I cannot recommend the Vinings location due to my last two experiences. The staff was very friendly however.
Celebrated my sister's birthday with a late Sunday brunch. As always, food was delicious and our server, Jay, was outstanding and very attentive. A little long between brunch cocktails and ordering but it was late during the brunch schedule. Overall excellent and we will back for brunch!
We had friends in town and wanted to find a nice restaurant that was casual and not too fancy. South City Kitchen was excellent. The appetizers, food and wine were worth the drive over to Vinings. We definitely would recommend South City and will go there again. My only complaint is that it was a bit noisy.
Had a 10 am reservation on Sunday for brunch. Second one in the door. Had to wait for staff to finish socializing with and serving customers that arrived after us to get service. Had to flag down staff to get service. No less than three members of staff socialized with guests 2 tables way while we waited for service. Manager spills coffee on the table. When we waved manager down to ask for a refill, she then gives us a dirty look when we ask for more cream. Was 10 seconds away from walking out. Won’t be back!
Always a good meal when dining at South City Kitchen in Vinings. The only negative was we were unable to use our Double Up voucher for $30. Mgr. said it was out of date and would use for $15.00 which we paid. We are regular customers and would have expected her to do something in our favor which she didn't. Our waitress Linda - always does a good job. Wish you offered a larger craft beer selection.
