Quiet with Atlanta being all most empty because of the virus. Service and food was excellent! Will be back!

Food was great, drinks awesome, service nice, however, the bathrooms... Obviously no one from the restaurant personal checked them the entire evening - I went in and wanted to immediately walk out. I’ll spare you the details, but it was an issue.

Great date night spot. The wife and I had dinner before a comedy show at the Farm. Management and staff were friendly and attentive. The food was amazing. Could work on stocking updated liquors but definitely not a negative.

Host was a little pushy about us hurrying up at the bar to get a drink, but the food was absolutely delicious and the waitress was outstanding. 10/10. Will definitely be coming back soon.

We took some teens here as a “fancy” dinner during a large cheer competition. EVERYTHING from the food to the staff to the overall ambiance of the restaurant was beyond our expectations. I HIGHLY recommend Thrive for any special occasion or to simply make a regular night in the city extra special!

Food was actually really good! The service was awful. Watched our drinks sit at the bar for over 20 minutes. Literally. They claimed they were busy....the Resturant wasn’t even 25% full. Good luck.

My husband and I did an early Valentine’s Day trip to Atlanta. I found Thrive online and liked their menu. My husband had the shrimp and grits and I had the fried chicken. Both entrees were very good. We also had the lemon parmesan fries for an appetizer and they were amazing! We would definitely eat here again.

Really really bad. Service was virtually non-existent. Waited 40 minutes past our reservation time for seating, and even then we were told the only seating was in the bar. Then we waited an excessive length of time for food and appetizer was totally forgotten. Server never checked on us and bartender was just plain mean when we told her no appetizer ever arrived.

Food was ok, wine list was minimal, overall not a high quality experience and we will not be back. Convinced this place only stays open due to proximity to State Farm Arena.

Perfect location for a pre-concert dinner (though reservations are a must!). Lovely place, yummy food. Was nervous to order sushi as it noted that it was made to order and could take up to 45 minutes but that turned out to not really be a concern as we saw a few tables who ordered around the same time as us receive their sushi apps very quickly, oh well! The hummus app was delicious as were both of our dinner orders. Definitely worth the trip if you're downtown ATL, concert or not!

Service wasn't as good as the other times we were there. Hostess and Manager ended up making sure we were taken care of. Once they did, service was fine. Food is excellent.

Food was outstanding. It was our servers first day and he was overwhelmed so we were ignored most of the night. Refills were slow or nonexistent and after waiting awhile for the dessert menu to be dropped off we went on line to view desserts. I felt like his managers could have been more involved.

Great waitress, great food, great drinks!
I had the pomegranate margarita that was super good. Perfect mixture of alcohol and fruitiness.
We had the calamari for an appetizer that was to die for.
Then we had the shrimp tempura roll and the pink a poo roll and they were both so delicious.
We were very pleased with Thrive!
It was our first time there and we will definitely be back!

Overall a good lunch. Food was excellent all around, the sandwiches were great and a good lunch. They did forget my mustard for my sandwich but gathered that quickly.

The biggest downfall was the time it took to get the food - the restaurant was not too busy and we waited over an hour to get our food after ordering and waiting. Hopefully they were just having a bad day but it was too long.

Thrive, why do you have to run so hot and so cold? Out last visit the food, the service was very good. We were a party of five placed as a table suitable for 8 or 10 which made is impossible for the five of us to converse. So three of us chatted but the other two people could only converse with each other. It’s our own fault settling on this table as we should have declined it. The five of us never received out cocktails at the same time. Is that a bar issue? The lamb in the lamb sandwiches was tough, tough, tough. The ultimate was while we were still eating our meal our server asked if we wanted dessert as she had to close out our check. That Thrive, was an ultimate no no and a slap in our face. It was a poor night this time around.

The one big drawback to the restaurant is the noise level. You end up screaming across the table to be heard. It is unpleasant. After working a long day, you want to relax and enjoy the evening.

The food was wonderful!! It might just have been our waiter but it took 40 minutes to get a bottle of wine and one dinner out of 5 came when the others were almost finished. So the service was terrible but the dinner great.
