    Poor customer service. Was not able to contact restaurant regarding reservation. Phone ring unanswered all the time for about 20 attempts. Would definitely not recommend this restaurant. Food was average but waiter was unaware of almost everything regarding the menu. Disappointed for a birthday dinner.

    Service was terrible. Waited 20 min before anyone came to take our drink order. Didn’t deliver a menu until 30 min into sitting. Had to ask for refills every single time. Seating was crazy uncomfortable. The only thing that save the food was that the sushi was phenomenal.

    What a disappointing experience. My daughter chose this restaurant because of the cool pictures and she wanted good food from a downtown Atlanta restaurant. The restaurant was packed when we arrived, but we were seated right away. In general, the decor is nice, however, the seats in the window benches were in terrible condition. They were split and pealing. The bathrooms were not clean, some didn’t have toilet e, others didn’t have paper towels. They are dark (black walls and toilet). The lack of proper lighting could be an issue for some. The service…unbelievably slow and disappointing. It took us 5 minutes to get utensils and napkins after receiving our food. The server was kind but obviously irritated that we asked for things that we should have had anyway, like the avocado on the chicken sandwich or mayonnaise for a burger and ketchup for fries. The food…not the same menu that my daughter found on the internet, but still had decent options. We chose to split two entrees. The grilled chicken sandwich and the burger. We both had the lemon Parmesan cheese fries. The chicken was charred and dry. The burger was ordered medium well. It was medium on the outer edge, but medium rare in the middle. Yes, we both got sick. The fries were crispy and delicious, but I think I prefer plain fries better. I shook off most of the cheese. Overall, I would not return, but do hope the restaurant will update and clean the things I have addressed and discuss with the servers the need to think ahead what their customers may need. The other issue I had was how long it took for them to clear the tables. The restaurant looked awful with food that had dropped on the tables and many tables not cleaned in 45 minutes after the customers left.

    We had a group of 22 for lunch. The restaurant was very vibrant and energetic; in other words, sort of loud. However, everyone enjoyed their food and our server did an excellent job. I ordered a salad with grilled chicken on top. My only small complaint is that the chicken was a bit overdone. Other than that, the salad was delicious and fresh. The restaurant itself is very modern looking and is quite cute. I imagine at nighttime it's a great place for a date, as we drove by later in the evening and the lighting inside looked amazing. Would definitely recommend to a friend!

    We waited an hour and a half for our food. Hoping they were just understaffed. The food was ok but had to shove it down so fast because we had a conference to get back to. I would not go back.

    Honestly, we found our meal to be okay. But, they were out of several items, told us the kitchen was closing at 4, rushed us out the door and charged us full price for meals that did not contain the items reflected in their menu (Cobb Salad for example came without blue cheese or bacon and was just chicken and lettuce.) And they charged full price anyhow, to all 3 people who ordered that dish. It was fine but not the experience we had hoped for.

    We used a coupon to eat at Thrive. The service was good and the appetizers (including the sushi pot stickers) were tasty. However, the main course (tuna burger and fries) was adequate and not as well cooked as other similar restaurants.

    The restaurant tables, chairs, and menus are all dilapidated and need replacement. They told me they ran out of parking stickers and so I ended up paying an extra $16 for parking that was advertised as validated parking.

    They did not have a lot of items on the menu - the waiter mentioned that 1 of the refrigerators was broken. No vegetables were available, no grits...they just did not have many of the items we wanted and with an already limited menu it made it a little frustrating. However, the food they did have that we ordered was very good. The appetizers and the sushi was also really tasty & flavorful.

    I went for my mom’s birthday. Nobody looked at our reservation to see that we were celebrating a birthday and I had to ask about birthday celebrations eventually because they never acknowledged it. When I asked they said the kitchen was closed at 4pm. The condition of the restaurant was also poor and when we requested to sit at a booth that had seats without giant holes in them we were treated as if we had asked something outlandish. The menu also didn’t match what was on the website. I won’t be returning.
