the bqe restaurant & lounge
I came for Brunch for my birthday the Food was amazing it was 5 of us we all ordered something different and did a taste test . Music was on point and the waitress was awesome
Everything was amazing. Our waitress was awesome. I'm not good with names so I can't remember her name 😬 But she was great. We had a the bqe mimosa, chicken and red velvet waffles, catfish and grits, macaroni and honey biscuits and I don't have a single complaint about any of it. Awesome environment and awesome music. The only thing I didn't like (which isn't even a big enough issue to cause the loss of a star) was that the tables were so close that the next people who came in were directly next to us and we could hear each other's conversations. However they were nice so everything was just fine. Everything was so good my husband wanted to go back for brunch before we left Sunday also.. unfortunately they were booked. 😩 We will definitely be back soon though.
Food was real good... Service not so much! 20 mins to get water!
First time visiting and absolutely loved it! Ambiance great, “grown folks” dj on point! The food was incredible - shared the shrimp n grits and the buttermilk fried chicken with sides - absolutely delish!! Our waiter “Christopher” was fantastic - attentive, knowledgeable and funny - loved him!! My only regret - not booking closer to the band start time.
The food was great!
I’ve been coming to this restaurant for years!! Bring back the old menu and some of the old receipts! And please bring back the cornbread muffins !!! I enjoyed myself !!
Great atmosphere, service, food and music. Wife and enjoyed for date night. Only negative is the liquor pours are on the light side.
The food tasted great but we ordered the beef rib and it came out cold and had to be taken back to the kitchen for a fix. After the fix it was delicious. The server was great, very attentive and helpful. We never had to ask for water refills and bussers were on it. Completed plates were respectfully taken from the table very quickly. The hostess is the largest complaint. She was not very personable, seemed to be in a bad mood to the point where if felt uncomfortable asking for a table change from a dark corner. Just not the first personality I would want my quests to encounter since she almost made us feel unwelcome to the restaurant.
BQE was an amazing experience. Definitely went two days in a row. We loved Saturday brunch. The food is also amazing. Well definite be visiting again when I get back to Atlanta.
Chef is Amazing! Was there Saturday celebrating my birthday and had a blast. The various DJs were awesome! We ordered rounds after rounds of specialty shots and plenty of bottles of champagne. The check in hostess could had been a bit more welcoming as they made NO eye contact and came off a bit short. Other than that A1 and will most certainly be back!
The Band was amazing! The food & service was impeccable. Perfect for celebrating a birthday!!
Our waitress wAs amazing . The food and drinks were great and we enjoyed ourselves on a Tuesday night
GREAT FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT....DEFINITELY COMING BACK
It was extremely loud, there was a DJ blaring music at 10:30 am. Had to scream in order to be heard. Left my jacket, called back unable to reach anyone, I left a message and I haven't received a return call.
Outstanding chill spot for people watching, music and food...
Great food and service!
Bday brunch my waitress was friendly fast n courteous
I absolutely loved this restaurant! There was a live DJ, the food was outstanding and the drinks were strong! I ordered the Chicken & Red Velvet Waffles and the waffles were to die for! The waffles tasted like actual red velvet cake rather than waffles with red food coloring. The DJ played many of my favorite songs and I got to vibe while eating good food.
Had a great time. Food was excellent. I will be back.
Love the food and music
The food was really good. The service wasn't bad. The food came out in a timely manner. The server was attentive. My issue was about the restaurant being very small and crowded. Crowded to where everyone is bumping into each other. There were people standing to watch the music performance because there isn't seating to accommodate the amount of people. The restaurant need to build out that location or find a new location to accomodate the amount of people that frequent that establishment.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The music was perfect for a crowd who loves stress free fun, this place is a genuinely good time . My husband and I enjoyed of 6 year anniversary with good food, drinks, music and service. I will definitely visit again!
Our reservation was at 2:45PM and we did not get seated until well after 3:45PM WITH A RESERVATION. And that was only because I kept hassling her about when we would finally be seated. They were extremely unorganized and planned poorly. Someone offered me a free hookah as a result but when I told them I do not smoke hookah and if I could have mimosas instead, they told me no. And they did not compensate me at all for my time waited. The music was way too loud where you could barely hear yourself talk. The waitress overcharged me as well but at that point I was so over it and been there for so long, I just paid the tab and left because I didn’t have time to go back and forth and had somewhere to be that I was now late too because they did not sit us until 4PM. Terrible experience and will not be returning.
Great food with a nice vibe. The Dj did a great job, providing us with a mixture of hip hop and r&b.
My husband and I had a great time. We went on a Saturday for brunch. It felt like we were at a day party. The food and my mimosa was amazing!
The security at the door on Friday, April 26 was amazing.
Very friendly was true to reservations. Great bday experience
BQE was amazing. I made reservations for my friend Birthday and she loved it. From the food to the live band it was great!!!
Enjoy my server he was great. Food was wonderful. That was my first time there and the food was so great that I return the next day to get more food
Food is very inconsistent from first time I came. No truffle on fries and macaroni burnt.
I will never be back. Good food but terrible management. Charged $29+ gratuity for bringing in a cake without telling me. They don’t note this on open table like they do the entertainment fee.
EJ the manager said she couldn’t do anything and was very nonchalant. Said they tell customers and when I asked why no one said anything when I handed the cake off she couldn’t answer. Will never patronize again and will tell everyone I know.
Food was excellent. Got there as soon as they opened, so it wasn't very noisy at the time.
Some of the best fried chicken EVER!!!!!
The food was soooo good and the wait staff was beyond friendly. I will go back over and over again when I visit Atlanta.
Food and atmosphere always so good! Shout out Chef Harper!
Loved red velvet chicken and waffles. Mac and cheese was also a hit! Great service!
Everything started off bad because one of reservations got cancel for is being late like 10min. One of the managers made sure we was straight and sat us all together. The food is always good. I’m never disappointed.
Bqe restaurant lounge was great! The food was awesome and so was the music. Only negative is that my entire party had received their food and I still hadn’t received mine for another 45 minutes and still had to pay for it. Other than that no complaints!
Great food. Awesome owner. Very nice setting! I highly recommend.
Best brunch in Atlanta
The only frustrating issue is now the entire establishment with exception to the bar has a 2hr limit whether you are still dining and/or buying drinks. My 5 person party (all but 1) were just about finished eating and had ordered more cocktails. When our server said that a manager/supervisor asked "why are they still here?" Which then we were asked to relinquish seating due to a 2hr limit on tables.
