OpenTable Diner (Atlanta)

Dined a day ago

We came for a girls night to have dinner. We were running about 10 minutes late. I called to let them know and they said if we were more than 15 minutes late they would give our table away, which I understand because I work in a restaurant; however we called and the place was dead when we came in.

It took 9 minutes for the server to greet us, and we sat with empty drinks for a majority of the meal, which was disappointing.

Luckily, the food is amazing and makes up for the terrible service.

The tuna was amazing, the beef brisket was one of the best dishes I’ve ever had and the truffle fries were insane was well. We probably would have ordered a lot more food and drinks if we had seen the server more.

When I made the reservation, I was asked if it was for a special occasion. I indicated that it was for our anniversary. Why ask? Neither the receptionist nor the server mentioned our anniversary and nothing special was done for it. We live downtown and like Market Place because it is quiet enough to have a conversation. We also choose it whenever we have a group of 6 or 8, because we like the round tables so everyone can be included in the conversation. This time we were in the middle of the restaurant across from the men's restroom. The live music was far enough away that we could have a good conversation.

A perfect choice for a birthday celebration. My husband said his quail was the best he’s had -in the USA. My braised lamb was fabulous. Service could not have been more attentive. We’ll be back, soon!

Fabulous dinner with friends during restaurant week. Three course dinner was superb. Pear and blue cheese salad with shaved root vegetables was inventive and the contrasting flavors were fantastic. Sunburst farm trout was exquisitely prepared and served over smokey lentils. Wildflower honey creme brûlée was fabulous.

WE came with a group of 5 girls. Our waiter was excellent and the hostess even went out of her way to find a phone charger for us. Our food was delicious and delivered expeditiously. Would definitely return if I was in Asheville
