    Arrived at 5:25 for a 5:30 reservation. Was immediately seated, but took 30 minutes for a cocktail to arrive. Then, over an hour later for our food, with our waiter difficult to find the whole time. Then the wrong food arrived, and he said it would be an hour more to correct it. Worst service experience ever. Ruined our anniversary dinner.

    We decided to try Thrive after seeing their great rating on OpenTable… unfortunately the experience was pretty terrible. Both meals tasted (and looked) like they had been prepared days ahead and reheated to lukewarm just before being set on our table. It was edible, as leftovers are, but very disappointing.

    It was a good experience and worth the walk over from the other side of downtown Atlanta. It was really slow, which explains how it was so quiet for my meal, but I’ll take into consideration that it was a mid-day Monday and a holiday. Overall, they have a good menu, interesting variety (not sure what cuisine they define themselves as), but it gives for options if one person is craving one thing and your company another.

    Thrive was amazing! The service was outstanding! Our server was absolutely incredible. She had an impressive knowledge about the menu and provided us with thoughtful recommendations. Not only that, but she even put up with my husband's cheesy Dad jokes. The sushi was beyond excellent, incredibly fresh and delicious. The restaurant was spotlessly clean, including the restrooms. I highly recommend Thrive.

    When we arrived on time for our reservation, nobody seemed to be working anywhere in the restaurant. Took over 5 minutes for anyone to say anything to us and we when we were seated we were told it would still be a few minutes before anyone would be attending to us. There was only a party of 6 and no other patrons seated for dining. When my friends and I looked through our menus, we noticed my menu was different than all the others, and none of them matched the QR code menu. When we were finally approached for a drink order, we inquired as to which menu was accurate and the waitstaff didn't know and wasn't aware there were different versions at all. We hesitantly ordered drinks and my two friends who ordered basic vodka tonic cocktails they were undrinkable. We paid and left for McCormick and Schmick's down the street that was reliably excellent. Would not recommend, won't ever return.

    Disappointing. No warm sake only cold bottle? Edamame overcooked. Asked for dish for soy sauce “we don’t have any. Well actually we ran out let me see if they are out of the dishwasher”. Really? Food was ok. Music quite awful. Hate to be so negative but this place feels so mismanaged

    It’s primarily a sushi restaurant with a limited regular menu. My salmon was delicious but my husband was told the pork tenderloin he wanted was sold out and there was no other entree that appealed to him. Just not a lot of choice. He settled for a hamburger.

    They were accommodating. I am diabetic and they were willing to do their seafood and mac-n-cheese as a salad for me. My daughter also enjoyed her salmon. The staff were friendly and professional. It was easy to walk to from our place. It was easy getting a reservation on Open Table.

    6 of us dined at Thrive. We were seated quickly and the server immediately took our drink and appetizer orders which we received quickly. We had the Calamari and pot stickers- both were delicious. Several members of our group got the seafood Mac and cheese which they say was wonderful. My husband and I shared the tuna sashimi and the spicy tuna roll- both were incredible and fresh.

    Very nice experience. I ordered 2 nigiri and got 2 orders instead of 2 single. My misunderstanding but it blew expected budget. They should clarify better. Very small print but still good. Room for improvement on offerings. Just didn’t knock my socks off for the prices but it was walkable from the hotel. Safe, clean, friendly, comfortable, all in all worth it.

    Service was slower and not attentive for as slow as it was. Lemon drop martini came with olives in it so that was interesting. the food was decent just not many options if you werent hungry fo sushi. And the sushi options were pretty basic. The city has pretty limited options though and this was very close to the venue.

    The food at Thrive was good. However, the service was the worst I have had in a while. Our waitress was very friendly, but we were ignored most of the meal and it took an hour after we got there to even take our order. It seemed that they were just truly under staffed.

    Poorly managed. Stood at the host table for several minutes and no one greeted us or tried to seat us. So we grabbed menus from the table and sat at the bar. The bar was under-staffed and one woman was trying to wait on about 10 different parties/groups at the bar. Other employees were in the bar area making drinks for themselves and taking shots with each other, but not helping the bartender. The food took a while to come out and the bartender had to go back to the kitchen to check for our sushi several times and eventually noted that she had to “stand there while they made it to ensure it was made.” The person next to us waited longer and then when her sushi came out, it wasn’t what she ordered. So she was refunded and left.

    Great service and the food was really good. The staff were very attentive and the drinks were strong. Wish I had known prior to my arrival there that they have a parking garage where they validate the parking. If you go over there while an event is going you will pay $20 to park in the other lots.

    My husband and I made a reservation and then once we arrived we decided to sit at the bar instead because the restaurant was quite empty and the bar looked nice. We sat for quote some time before we were even greeted and even the greeting was poor. Once we finally had the bartender's attention for long enough, we ordered drinks and started to discuss sushi... she walked away and did not return for several minutes (10+). She came back and asked us what we wanted and we started to order sushi when she cuts us off to tell us that their sushi roller did not show up and they will not be doing sushi tonight. Mind you, this is a sushi restaurant AND we had already spoken to her about sushi when we first arrived. We were mindblown. We obviously decided to leave and suddenly she was attentive and quick to get us paid and out of there. Definitely will not be returning.
