Even though the restaurant was packed, they did a great job at serving our party of 12 on time, and our server was great! My husband said the shrimp and grits was the best he'd ever had!

With the gift show and so many other things going on in town this place was unprepared for the crowds. They greeted me by telling me they hadn’t been able to reconfirm my reservation, when I had called them to let them know we would be about 30 minutes late and was told it was no problem. They had 1 bartender on duty so people were waiting forever for their drinks. Also they have an obnoxious blinking light in the dining room that belongs at a club

Dined before college football national championship. Despite large crowd, readily available friendly service. Good diverse options ranging from lamb shank to seared tuna. All delicious and impressed our diverse crowd of young and old. I will return when I am in this area of ATLANTA

Great experience and Within walking distance of the Phillips Arena. The fact that they take reservations is awesome because you can plan for just before or after the events. Food was great and I highly recommend the Crab Cucumber salad and the Flourless chocolate truffle cake.

Thrive is a wonderful spot to grab fresh sushi and delicious drinks including a nice selection of craft beers. Our waiter, Joseph, was phenomenal. It was lovely to be waited on by someone personable and knowledgeable and with an obvious passion to provide a fantastic dinning experience. This will be our new “must” spot during our frequent ATL visits.

I was in town on business and my wife and I were looking for something in walking distance from the Omni. After two full days in a technical training I just wanted to decompress and I didn't want a heavy dinner so we passed on McCormick & Schmidt's and a few other places. The reviews on here and Yelp said Thrive had great food and an even better happy hour. It's 5:30pm so we made a reservation for 6:30 because we were unsure of the walk. We leave our room around 6 and arrive about 6:15. From the moment we walked through the doors it was a top notch experience. We we're promptly seated despite being early and when we were told that happy hour specials are only in the bar are server was more that understanding and even helped us get a spot. I normally don't like to sit in the bar area because I'm an introvert but the bartender Shanelle made us feel comfortable and welcome. Shanelle as well as the manger made our night top notch. She made us her favorite drinks, one from the happy hour menu and one from the regular menu. I had the Domanie De Burbon and my wife had the Stina. Let me tell you... those drinks are where babies come from! let me not forget the food. My wife had the fish tacos from the happy hour menu, which were perfectly cooked. The fish was flaky with a flavorful breaking. I had salmon from the dinner menu which melted in my mouth. We will definitely be back to Thrive the next time we come to Atlanta.

Very good sushi, sashami, etc. plus other continental menu items. Service is very attentive.
Great location near downtown attractions at Pihilips and Mercedes Benz arenas.
Reservations are essential on most evenings.

We had a very nice meal at Thrive while visiting Atlanta for a convention. The restaurant is in easy walking distance from the Convention Center, and offers some of the best food in the area. I was especially impressed with the portion sizes - everything was appropriately sized - not too big or too small! The wait staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, although the woman at the front desk seemed very scattered and was not terribly friendly.

The one negative is that the ladies room was really dirty and completely out of toilet paper. It was obvious that it hadn't been cleaned in days. Luckily I went in there *after* we had finished our great meal!

No major complaints. The lettuce wraps appetizer, sushi roll and burger were good, but nothing to write home about. The drink I ordered was underwhelming. There weren't a ton of options in that area, so definitely a viable dinner/drinks option. People who were there for what looked like an after-work gathering seemed to be having a good time.

Had 5:30 reservations, hostess told us we HAD to be off our table by 7:00 (I've never had this happen). Ok, slow to get waited on. Ordered the smoked salmon appetizer, was told had to order entire meal at the same time...???....ok, ordered a combination of three sushi rolls. Entree came out before appetizer, then a gentleman came out and said they were out of smoked salmon.....at 5:30???? Restaurant just opened. Anyway, entree was good. At 7:00, waiter was pushing us to leave. If the waiter wasn't nice or the sushi wasn't good, the review would be worse.

Not only was the restaurant out of two of the items on the menu that we ordered at 7 pm on a Saturday night, but the food was mediocre at best. It was really disappointing. After we left Thrive having only eaten half our food, we went over to Glenn's Kitchen and had some great appetizers to fill up. Wish we had gone there for my birthday dinner instead. I was a server throughout college so I made sure our server was taken care of with her tip despite the bad food.
