We were a group pf high maintenance drunken women and they handled our requests and sillyness beautifully. Thank you for a great evening. Food was yum. Drinks were a little small and expensive . Music was great.

Great food and enjoy the live music, but, entirely too loud if you are going for any conversation.

Service and food is amazing! Great for everyday but paired with music for brunch was perfect for a birthday celebration.

It was a really nice brunch. Service great food very good. We chose this place because of the bottomless Mimosa's and the band. Really enjoyed the live jazz at brunch. The mimosas were not very good though. It was just a big glass of not great quality orange juice and a tiny splash of champagne. I ended up just buying a couple glasses of champagne to go with my bottomless Mimosa. We had the blueberry donuts and lemon curd - we kept sneaking tastes of the curd. We both had the chicken and grits which was pretty tasty served in a great big bowl. Our server was very friendly and attentive.

The entertainment was amazing. Our server was fantastic as well. The mussels were delicious & full of BBQ flavor. Unfortunately, the rest of the meal was a huge disappointment. We've eaten at Venkman's several times & this menu left a lot to be desired. The octopus smelled funky when it hit the table, there was a weird aftertaste with the dish. The fries were too greasy & too salty. The shrimp dumplings had a miso broth that was not flavorful at all. The hummus lacked salt. The drinks were pretty tasty though. That was a plus. We loved our server & the way the staff worked together. The hostesses were super sweet as well. Hopefully, the menu changes back pretty soon so we can visit again.

The band was really energetic. But the food was too salty. I expected a bigger crowd but it was ok.

Best brunch experience in Atlanta! Very hip ! I had the best Huevos Rancheros I've ever been served! Super clean and healthy and I wanted to lick the plate. Best meal I've been served in a long time. A must return and I wouldn't consider anywhere else for a weekend meal. I'm ready for dinner and concert . I just was so pleasantly surprised!!!
