Food was good though we both felt it could use some salt. The service was good as well, but it was slower than we felt necessary. Lovely atmosphere.

We had our first post-vaccine group outing with friends. The entire experience was wonderful. They were understaffed, as many places are these days, but they recovered well and still managed to give us great service.

The food was delicious and drinks were just what we needed.

Overall, it was great dining experience. We’ll be back for sure.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the metro Atlanta. We have had consistent great service and unique and delicious food every single time. The walnut salad is sooo good! ... Our other favorite restaurant has the same owner, this person has created a beautiful menu that tantalizes and pleases the very discerning food lover. Best thing of all is that they do NOT skimp on portions. Another bonus? The staff always appears happy and excited to serve up a fun dining experience.

Hoping to go back again and again, in-between our oyster forays at Hammocks down the street!

All our food was very good to excellent; the service was outstanding. The price was quite reasonable given the quality of the food and service. We sat outside and it was quiet enough to converse easily. Go in a small group. We had four people and shared numerous small plates so we had a lovely variety of food. We four hadn't seen each other in a year and had a lot of catching up to do; Under the Cork Tree was perfect for that.

Very highly recommended.

Nice small plates options. Sangria is great, not sugary sweet. Or waitress was very attentive and entertaining. The Cacio e Pepe hits the spot! Calamari was well cooked, not greasy. Overall a good experience.

Our family eats out regularly and have only provided positive reviews in this open table forum. This was one of the worst experiences that we ever had. I feel badly writing this as I don’t want to negatively impact this restaurant but we will never go back. The dining experience was an absolute disaster and the management did not seem to care at all. This restaurant Under the Cork tree should be ashamed of themselves of how they treated our family.

I do apologize for the disaster of an experience you family had but I stand by all of my servers in that they do NOT mistreat our guests. If you would like to discuss this further you can call the restaurant or email me direct from our website. Thank you.

The food was very good but the service was very poor and disconnected. Incorrect food and drink was delivered to the wrong guests and somethings weren’t delivered at all. No accommodation was made for poor delivery snd unacceptable service. I’m speaking in reference to that no one said “let us give you a dessert for guests” or let us send out a glass of wine.


I was very disappointed because we had been before and had a good experience.

I was really looking forward to trying this restaurant. What a disappointment all the way around. We were seated outside, at a tiny table between the restaurant exterior and a weird shade that cut us off from the rest of the patio. The wait staff and customers had to slide between the shade and our table to get into the restaurant. Very strange placement. We waited at least 15 minutes for anyone to approach our table and another 10 for someone to come back and take our drink order. Ten minutes later (still no drinks), someone else took our food order. We chose 5 small plates to split between the two of us and they started coming out rapid-fire, which overwhelmed our tiny table...and still had no drinks.

The food was okay...nothing great. We were excited to try the octopus, one of our favorites. It was decent, but not fantastic. Everything else we had was just dull. We had food runners, but rarely saw our actual server. It was more like people threw plates on our table and ran. Our server finally showed up with our check, then disappeared...another staff member finally picked up our card almost 15 minutes later. We could hear a neighboring table also expressing their concerns with the poor service.

The 'live music' was horrible. Seriously horrible. I remarked to my husband that the 'performer' must certainly be the son of one of the owners -- that's the only way he could have gotten the gig.

Tapas (appetizers) were very good. Dinner items were fair. Did not try the paella. If looking for a place to have a couple of drinks and appetizers, this is a great place.

Overall experience was excellent. Went on a Friday night for a date and was not disappointed with the experience. The service was great as was the food and the atmosphere. I thought the patatas bravas were a little bland as was the rabbit ravioli but everything else was exceptional. Great wine and cocktail selection as well. We will be back!

Excellent Paella, Cocktails, Artichokes and Meatballs. Everything was very well crafted. It was very nice to get some flavors that are uncommon in most restaurants. Service was friendly and not overbearing, the decor is nice and fortunately, it wasn't a madhouse as most restaurants are with a million people and noise levels that make it hard to hear your mates talk. Enjoyable evening.

I'll definitely be back.

Food was good, service was not great. Very slow, didn’t receive drinks until 20 minutes after sitting down. Checked on once by our server during the entire dining experience.

Thank you! As you may have heard all restaurants are under staffed, as in the case with us. I am so sorry to hear your service was slow. We are actively looking for more servers and hope to add more to the schedule as soon as possible. If you know anyone looking for a server job send them our way.

We got there place was basically empty they put us at a table in the middle of the room, I asked if we could have a booth, the young lady said they all were reserved I said really how do you do that since on open table it's not an option, she said oh you could have a booth if you are done by 1pm I said I did not think that was possible! So we sat at the table, I wanted to just leave go somewhere else but my wife lets stay, we ordered some small plates meats and vegetables, they brought out two meats both of which are pre cooked meat balls and ribs so they could have brought those out at any moment and when I said why don't you bring out with the vegetables so we have a variety instead of just vegetables or just meat the waiter said oh we normally just bring them out as they are cooked? Again the ribs and Meatballs are not something you do when ordered ok you can warm up but they are already cooked! Nit impressed with the service or lack of service when we left only two of the boothes had people in them so they have lost a customer and I will not be giving them another penny of my hard earned money

Cheese plates and pickles with almond and flat spicey bread was outstanding a fair priced. Spicy Seafood was not spicey , seared scallops was just ok, drinks were great but a bit pricey. Waiter was great. Over all I give it 93
Yes we will be back to check out all the tapas plates.

Love this restaurant, Enjoyed the scallops with the Risotto, the Salmon with the fettuccine and my favorite, the cod croquettes!
Would love it, if the bring back the warm dates cake and the white meat Tunisian chicken skewers instead of the red meat.
Service was great as well!

The food was pretty good. The truffle pasta came out Luke warm, the paella was good but not outstanding. The fried artichokes were probably the best thing we ordered. The waiter was nice. The main reason I am giving this 3 stars is b/c of the hostess, she was rude, and unwelcoming and that left a lasting impression on both me and my friend, especially considering it was my first experience at the restaurant. Overall it was nice.
