The Southern Gentleman
The gorgeous top floor space in Buckhead Atlanta was designed by New York’s Lacina Heitler, and features classic, Southern touches done in surprising, modern ways: seersucker window treatments, tufted camel leather booths, vintage plateware, white marble countertops, vaulted ceilings, herringbone floors, dramatic chandeliers, complete with an oversized portrait of Mark Twain painted by a commissioned local artist.

The host was extremely rude. However, our waitress a Southern Belle from Tuscaloosa Al was wonderful & the sole reason we would return. The bartenders were very good also.
Loud on a Sunday night. Hard to find. Hard to park.
Our waiter was outstanding
Thank you for coming in and for the nice rating. We're so pleased to know you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to serving you again soon!
Great service and wonderful food.
Imani, thank you very much! We hope to see you back in again sometime soon!
The whiskey selection is A1! The server we had Cory I believe it was took great care of us, the atmosphere was very open. I recommend either of the chicken entrees they are filling the trout was just not worth it just my opinion, but It is delicious!
That's wonderful to hear about Cory, our whiskey selection and the chicken. Thank you for your nice review and we look forward to serving you again soon!
Date with my girlfriend was awesome here. We did dinner last minute on a weekday night! We got the burger and the wagyu skirt steak. Both meals were great. I also recommend the old fashioned!
Thank you for coming in for a weekday date dinner. We're happy to know you both enjoyed your burger and steak and that you are a fan of our Old Fashioned! We look forward to serving you again.
It was my birthday and everything was delicious. Great service and amazing drinks.
Lorrie, we greatly appreciate you spending your birthday with us and we're glad to hear it was an enjoyable evening. Happy Birthday and we hope to see you back soon!
Great food! Javonne was excellent, took great care of us. Patio is awesome!
Thank you Matt! That's great to know Javonne took such great care of you and we're happy to know you liked the patio so much. Next time we see you we look forward to providing just as nice of an experience!
The atmosphere was beautiful but the service was horrible. Didn’t seem like anyone enjoyed working there. Food was ok not a lot to choose from on the menu. Ordered a couple drinks and I’ve had better for cheaper. Noise volume was pretty high but it didn’t bother me. Suggest sitting outside, inside was pretty hot.
Thank you for your visit and compliments on our atmosphere, but please accept our apologies if you didn't feel the service was as enjoyable. That's certainly not common but we would love to hear more from you so we could look into what may have happened and make sure it is not an issue again. We will send you an email address by private message and we hope to hear from you then have the chance to serve you again for what we're certain will be a perfect meal.
The manager Lance was RUDE. The air conditioning was not working. Food and drinks were subpar. Our server was nice/
It was pretty hot inside, but it was great experience. Server was amazing!
amazing service on a very busy Sunday. The energy was great and our server did not rush us even though he was also bartending. Food was good portions and great value for the money! Must go!
Melissa, we appreciate your Sunday visit and are happy to know you enjoyed your brunch. Thank you!
Great service, but the menu needs work. The food felt like an modern twist on Popeyes. All deep fried with little variety.
Thank you for your compliments on our service. We are a Southern-inspired restaurant and our menu offers a fresh, modern take on traditional dishes made with locally sourced ingredients, like our marinated squash to our roasted chicken or pan-seared trout. More power to Popeyes if they are trying to do innovative things as well. Next time you can make it in be sure to ask your server to point our healthier and many non-fried items. We hope you'll be back soon.
Good times, I enjoyed myself.
Loved everything here! I am still thinking about the fried chicken the next day. Decor, service, and food was GREAT!
That's great to hear. Thank you and we hope you'll be back to enjoy some more fried chicken soon!
beautiful spot and very welcoming staff, but food was a miss. butter salad was over dressed. also, there was a pool of liquid/dressing in the bottom of the bowl it was in. oysters were overpowered by the granita and very large chunks of green apple. i didn’t care for much of the smoke trout either. it had a weird texture and barely any on the cracker. wagyu steak frites was the only decent thing i ate.
We greatly appreciate your visit and thank you for your compliments on our ambiance and staff, but we are sorry to hear you didn't feel your meal was ideal. If ever something isn't exactly as you had hoped please let us know immediately so we can make you a new item or help you choose something else you will love.Thank you and we look forward to serving you again for what we're sure will be a perfect meal for you. Thank you.
Amazing food, great service and ambience. First visit was for dinner, recently tried the Sunday brunch, equally as awesome!
Elle, that's great to hear! Thank you so much for your very kind words and we're happy to know you enjoyed both our dinner and brunch. We look forward to serving you again soon!
Food, service and ambiance was good! I had to ask about the AC because it was hottttt.
Hi Rena. Thank you for your compliments on our food, service and ambiance. Please accept our apologies if it was warm for you. We appreciate that feedback and it shouldn't be an issue moving forward. We hope to see you back soon!
Southern Gentleman is the standard bearer for what it is. Gorgeous room, spectacular location and views, kind and professional service. Perfect for a "see and be seen" business crowd during the week mixed with ladies and gents that lunch.
The food is very solid, well executed and delivered beautifully. Is there going to be a dish you dream about forever, not really, but thats not what they are doing. How you looked while eating it.... now that may be more memorable.
My husband and I sat down to enjoy our one year anniversary. The vibe and ambiance was very inviting and warm. We enjoyed our service and the food was fresh and amazing .
Thank you for joining us for your anniversary. We're so happy to know you and your husband had an enjoyable evening and we look forward to serving you again some day!
Sat there for
Great food and service! We had a wonderful birthday celebration catching up with friends even though the AC wasn’t really working well. Definitely will go back!

Food came fast and was great. Could have been quicker close out. Waited a while for the check.
Lynette, thank you for your compliments and please accept our apologies if you had any delay in receiving your check. That normally is not an issue but we will keep our eye on that and we hope you will join us again soon!
Food was really good. Our server was very friendly. A bit noisy but in a good way. Fun place for a night out.
Nova, thank you for your visit and nice comments. We're so pleased to know you enjoyed your night out with us and we look forward to serving you again soon!
Went for brunch and enjoyed the experience overall. Great cocktails in a nice setting. But “hot chicken” sandwiches were not spicy at all and sauce was bland and both the chicken and fries could have been crispier.
Hi Gabe. Thank you for your visit, compliments on our cocktails and atmosphere, and valuable feedback. Our Hot Chicken can be made spicier on request and the chicken and fries are normally very crispy. Please accept our apologies if yours weren't perfect for you. Please know if every you receive something that isn't exactly as you had hoped, let us know on the spot so we can make you a new item. We look forward to having you back for what we're sure will be a perfect meal.
It was a fantastic experience as usual. The extremely good ole boy/ southern Belle obnoxious wedding that was going on made me and my husband uncomfortable and it looked like it was making the staff kind of upset. Which if I had to deal with a wedding rehearsal like that I would be uncomfortable too.
We appreciate what sounds like your many visits and are glad you and your husband enjoyed your experience. We look forward to having you back soon. Thank you!
It was wonderful , warm welcome!!! Food was amazing
Thank you for your kind comments. We are so happy to know you enjoyed your meal with us!
My server was not professional, the steak was not good and overpriced. My last visit
Monica, thank you for your visit and feedback. That is not the kind of comments we are used to hearing but we apologize if everything was not ideal for you. If possible, please contact us with details about when you visited so we can look into what may have happened and make sure it does not happen again. Thank you and I hope to hear from you.
New favorite spot!
Thank you Linda. We're happy to hear that and hope to see you back often!
The food was excellent but the hosts at the front were not very friendly or helpful. We requested outdoor seating in the notes on our reservation. When we arrived there were tables outdoor available. They seated us indoors. When we asked again about sitting outside we were told they were saving those tables for later reservations. The table we were seated at was near the hosts podium. A few minutes later two different groups came in and they were given the choice of inside or outside (which we weren’t). We stopped one of the hosts to ask if there was any way we could love since they were sitting other parties outside and she said if she knew five minutes before or if we asked earlier she could have. We explained to her that we did ask but the other host said no. The entire situation made us feel so disrespected and belittled. It’s sad that it really dampened an otherwise good meal.
Hi Watercolors. We greatly appreciate your compliments on our food and this valuable feedback. Please accept our apologies if there was any confusion among our hosts for your seating. We normally make every effort to get guests tables where they will most enjoy their meal and we'll make sure this is not an issue moving forward. Hopefully we'll have the chance to serve you again soon and please introduce yourself so we make sure everything is perfect. Thank you!
Great spot for girls night or date night! The location is very close to the movie theater and along distance to shopping.
Jessica, thank you for your visit and kind comments. We hope to see you and the girls or a date back soon!
It was absolutely delish! Recommend ordering the appetizers and then one or two entrees if you have 5 or more guests. Definitely going back to try dinner.
Echo, that is wonderful to hear and we look forward to having you back for dinner soon. Thank you!
