Delightful staff. Accommodated a 40 minute late arrival for a 8 pm reservation. Never felt rushed. 7 of 8 guests enjoyed their dinner-only 1 negative comment on shrimp & grits- "didn't like that their was a tomato-like sauce." Folks who had trout-raved. Small bite desserts just perfect! The restaurant is loud and w 8 there are really 2-3 convos going at once because it is hard to hear.

i noticed one waiter that looked like he has just rolled out of bed..hairy greasy, stringing, I did not want him serving my food. Just gave a bad appearance for this type of restaurant, fine for a local cheap pizza place, not for fine dining

We had a delightful dinner! The Arugula and Grilled Apple salad was DELICIOUS with the honey roasted pecan dressing - highly recommend it. Our meatball entree was yummy along with the corn succotash side we added. We love how they do desserts here with the small bites, so you can get a little selection of treats. Our server was very good - informative, helpful and not intrusive. Looking forward to our next dinner here!

Wisteria is a special place for us and we try to come at least once a year ( we don't live close by any longer). The service is always good, food is amazing and we just love the cozy atmosphere. Highly recommend.

I came across this restaurant when I googled southern food restaurants in Atlanta and we were not disappointed at all!! Wisteria is in a cute little neighborhood in what looks like an old house converted into a restaurant. We had reservations to sit in the dining room, but when we arrived the bar top was empty and we chose to sit there instead. The bartender was very friendly and gave us great recommendations. He recommended the fried chicken with collard greens and mushrooms and MAN was it one of the best chicken dishes I have ever had. I usually don't go for chicken at a restaurant because chicken, everyone does it and it's usually don't done well. This fried chicken and collard greens did not disappoint! It was fantastic. I would come back to Wisteria next time I am in Atlanta!

I love the ambience but the food is really mediocre. We had calamari, carpaccio, and skate. None of these dishes had much flavor. I won’t be going back.

WISTERIA is excellent. It has one of the best "neighborhood" vibes in town, creative and comforting food and personable service. Considering how long it has been opened it feels very fresh and full of energy. Always memorable.

Meatloaf special was excellent, low-country boil was excellent, beef tenderloin was very good, and my pork tenderloin was excellent except for the mashed sweet potato which had very little flavor. The calamari was just slightly overcooked and the fried okra with it would have benefited to have been quartered instead of fried whole. It appeared there was only one server, Natalie. She was very knowledgeable and friendly but not quite as attentive, probably because of the staffing.

This place is incredible. The food was so delicious, I'm planning my next trip back already! The collard greens were the best I have ever had in my entire life, and if my grandmother found out I said that over her greens, oh...lord help me.

We were seated in a very timely manner. The food quality was ok. I ordered the mussels and a side of mushrooms. There was bread for the table, but it was pretty dry. Only complaints were that my side plates were never cleared and I had to ask for an extra bowl for the mussel shells.

8 of us went for dinner to celebrate 2 birthdays. It happened to be Inman Park restaurant week, which made it even better. Most of us ordered off the fixed price menu and thoroughly enjoyed it. Delicious meal capped off with an amazing dessert taster. We will be back.

Always reliable, great for guests, I love this place. I have had no trouble with managers or wait staff, quite the opposite, they were extremely personable and attentive. We had the aroncini, the gnocchi & meatballs, and the lamb Salisbury steak. They accommodated my substitution request (for a low carb side). I've never seen my dinner guest eat all her food, so it was a big hit!

It was so loud we could not even talk. We had reservations and they sat us at a table that they just stuck in a space it did not fit in. Servers were knocking into us. They moved us there after the first table was so loud we could not hear at all. Would not move us out of the walkway to other tables that were vacant. Fried chicken was soggy. The bill for four people was close to $300. The waitress was not very good and left us sitting there for a long time without drinks or taking our order. I will never go back. I have been to the restaurant before and liked it, but it is not the same.

In an almost empty restaurant we were seated in the rear corner about 12 inches away from another couple with five empty tables to the other side of them. For their sake and ours we requested to be moved but felt like the manager was a little snippy about it. I had the meatball gnocchi- which seemed a bit too Chef Boyardee for the $28. We've liked this place in the past but this was our last visit.

Our table was reserved for 7.15pm. It was not available for 30 minutes. Our waitress could be described as having a charisma bypass. Never smiled and not very friendly. Other than that a good meal in a nice restaurant.
