Wisteria remains a favorite. The food is consistently good. Bartender Brad is always friendly and makes dining at the bar easy. Keep up the good work. A neighborhood favorite!

This was our first visit to Wisteria, and the experience was great! The trout was perfect and the succotash fresh and delicious. Prompt service. Great beer selection particularly local craft brews. Really appreciate the dessert options, $5 each or 3 for $14 so we could taste and enjoy a variety of sweets without feeling too guilty! Beautiful space with original art and interesting lighting , cloth napkins, and fresh utensils with each course added to the evening.

I went there with a date and the server was very considerate and did an outstanding job. The food was excellent (I had skate wing and my date had trout) and the courses were brought out in a deliberate but timely manner that gave us time to talk and appreciate the food. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We had a perfect little table in a quiet spot - granted we got there early. I had the Skate and my husband had the Shrimp and Grits. Both were delicious.

Thomas was excellent, never felt rushed, food was amazing.. we wanted 1 of everything, drinks were excellent as well... first Manhattan I’ve had in a long time that wasn’t overpowering.. smooth is an understatement. Bread pudding was the deal. If you want a nice evening out and excellent food/service without the loud hectic loud vibe this is your spot.

I made this reservation for my boyfriend and me to celebrate three years together. It turned out to be a celebration of our new engagement. It was not a cozy or private atmosphere AT ALL. We were sat on top of two other tables. One of the tables was so close to us we would hear everything they said and we in turn had no privacy either. It was not romantic at all. Our server was ok but new and probably could have used a day or two more training with a more experienced server. The small plates were delicious, but we were not impressed with our drinks, desserts, or mains. The vegetarian option was not a composed dish; just all the available sides thrown together. There was no cohesion at all. My fiancé’s pork was very good but covered in other stuff that really detracted from it. We would not return to this place.

Our Experience at Wisteria was awesome. We arrived on time and did not have to wait to be seated. Upon arrival it took a few minutes for the host to greet us as he had stepped away from the station which was not a big deal. The restaurant was not crowded but had a lively group of patrons. We were seated in the right side back corner which made our experience more intimate in my opinion. Our server was fantastic, engaging, friendly and efficient.
Most of my group chose different entrees, however several folks in our party chose the Shrimp and grits; The shrimp and grits got mixed reviews, some thought the grits were too soupy others enjoyed the flavors. I had the steak special which was delicious. The other two entrees chosen were the Grilled Beef Tenderloins and Grilled Pork Tenderloin, both dishes appeared to have been a hit.
Overall we enjoyed our dining experience and would visit Wisteria again in the near future.

We met early because we had an event later that night, but two in our party got held up in terrible traffic. They had to text us their order from their Uber. Our server, Jim, was outstanding! He timed everything perfectly so that our friends had their wine as soon as they arrived (much needed) and our dinner promptly there after. Even with our shortened time, we never felt rushed or hurried. Everything was delicious and perfectly prepared. I’ve always loved Wisteria even though I don’t get there as often as I like, and once again it was delightful!!

This is the third time I have been to this restaurant in the last year. We used to love it, but every time I have been there recently I am shocked by how much I dislike the food. I had the fish special and the sauce was incredibly heavy and sweet. The fish and risotto it rested on were flavorless without the sauce. I tried the chocolate ganache dessert and it was like eating dense fudge. Way too heavy to be enjoyable. Others at the table ordered different things but felt the same way about them. We did love the ginger beer cocktail and really wish they would turn things around because it’s such a cozy, neighborhood spot.

Food was excellent... had not been to Wisteria in a few years and forgot how good EVERYTHING was. It was a slower night (Tues) so the atmosphere was not too electric, but the staff treated us very well and all courses were excellent.

Wisteria NEVER disappoints. Our server was new, but she had everything memorized and was just such a bubbly, considerate person. Food is always delicious with generous portions and wine was delightful. With all the restaurants in Atlants, Wisteria is still number 1 with me.

It took us forever to finally try it, but we were glad we did. Crab bisque was smooth and satisfying and the tenderloin was perfectly prepared. And thanks for not making it too salty!

Waiter was pleasant. Food was terrible. Where did the idea come from to pile up meat or fish over and under all accompaniments and sauces? messy and unappealing. Calamari, itself tasteless, was half fried onions, etc. My Lamb "Salisbury Steak" was a mushy pile of ground lamb over inedible grits or something. Sauces were heavily vinegar. Won't be back.

If it weren't for the gift card of $100.00, I would have not dined. I was in a fantastic mood until the fast talking pretentious bartender ruined my night. I proceeded to wait outside for my party. Made reservations 2 weeks in advance and they stuck us in the corner by the door. The waiter was pushy and not a relaxing environment what so ever. I would actually prefer getting refunded for this experience. I have let my colleagues know and several friends not to dine at all with Wisteria.

We had a wonderful dinner. Loved being seated at a round table for 6. One person out of 6 did not like his dinner. He had the meatball dish. The other 5 LOVED our meals. 3 dinners were the pork tenderloin. I was one of those and it was So good. One had lamb and one had the vegetable plate. They loved their meals too.
