Alessandro was by far the best server ever! The food was amazing but our servers smile and excitement as he was describing the dishes made my mouth water. Well definitely be back and request him. Food gets an A+ and service gets an A+!!! Well worth the money. This made our 5th anniversary!

Best crab cake in Atlanta, hands down. I have been here many times and have never had a less-than-perfect experience. Service is top tier, staff is incredible, food is off the charts. Bonus, if you’re in Atlanta, you will always run into someone you know here…for good reason. One of my favorite restaurants in the metro area overall

If you want an excellent all around dining experience, Chops tops the list. One of Atlanta’s staple, high end steakhouses-I’ve never had a bad experience here. The seafood and steaks here are fresh, seasoned, and wonderfully prepared to order. The Maryland crab cakes and the South African lobster morsels are perfect starters. Pro tips : Valet only charges $2 per car. The dress code seems to be more relaxed but still No athletic gear or graphic tee shirts (for men).

We enjoyed a wonderful evening of fine dining at Chops! A fan favorite, everyone had a great time. Ambiance was perfect, food was great, and service was top notch! As a vegetarian at a lobster bar, I was treated to a wonderful custom stir fry of vegetables! We even closed the place down with our celebrations. Cheers!🥂

TL;DR. Great place to eat! Reserve ahead of time. Can be pricey. We came to eat here as a party of 5 with reservations booked ahead of time. The establishment does have a dress code so make sure you are dressed the part. They do have valet parking available here. Once you enter you have a gorgeous place. They have two floors. We were sat down and our waiters took real good care of us the whole night. Plenty of dishes they could recommend. The A-5 Japanese Waygu was fantastic! A great environment to socialize with your company. Can get a bit loud (85+ dBs) but great experience overall. Would recommend to eat here if in the area.

Steaks & cocktails served in a clubby setting featuring a balcony & live jazz at the Ritz-Carlton.
Located inside the Ritz-Carlton. Valet parking is validated if you're just coming for dinner. Service was AMAZING from the hostess to the server. The food tasted great, only one complaint was the portion sizes. The pasta was a very small portion for the cost. Side of brussels we ordered was also small. For what we're paying, quantity of food isn't measuable. Presentation was beautiful. Extremely expensive for a dinner & we didn't even have any left overs to enjoy later. We did drinks, 2 apps, 2 meals and a side it was well over $300. Although the food was amazing, I can't justify this restaurant as a "regular" for us. I'd recommend this for a SUPER special occasion (then grab a meal before or after you come, you'll need it)

AG food and service is simply top notch. We've been to many nice places and Michelin restaurants. Vangel, our server, sealed the deal on making this a great experience. It's a little rare to have superb service AND all very good food, very well presented at the same time. Obviously I can't say enough about our experience. I hope you have one as similar as ours! Vangel is the best! Ask for him 💜

Went this past weekend to have dinner with a girlfriend to catch-up and the service was great! The hostess and server were so nice even though we were the last table to come before closing. Drinks and food were also amazing! Get the Duck Medium(chef recommended) with red wine sauce and Mac and cheese!

The steak was so incredibly flavorful, and I am so grateful their beef is grass fed. The tempranillo was delicious. Emran was very attentive and knowledgeable - I'm so glad he told me not to get the rub as the steak was perfect as is.

This was one of the best restaurants I've visited and I've visited quite a bit of places. Food and service were awesome. The atmosphere got three stars bc the place had fruit flies flying around a bit and it was definitely irritating but other than that, I enjoyed our night out.

Dinner-only eatery with New American fare & elegant, contemporary decor.
The hubs took me here for by birthday. The server were great and very attentive. Atmosphere was romantic and the food was delicious. We both had the taste menu and paired it with some wine. Couldn’t ask for a better place then here to celebrate a romantic birthday dinner.

Really great experience for our 15 year anniversary. Food was top notch as well as the service. Be sure to add details during your reservation and CALL to confirm they receive the notes - it’s worth the effort for special occasions :)

My wife and I came here for our anniversary expecting a romantic evening and fine dining experience. We had a reservation and even arrived 5 minutes early, but we ended up waiting 30 minutes in the lounge before getting to our table. Annoying considering we had limited time out and a sitter at home. What's the point of a reservation if we're going to wait so long? When we finally sat down, the main dining room was one big open area, like a large living room. Due to the acoustics or something, everyone basically had to talk very loudly to be heard. Even our server had to come closer just to hear us. Once half of the people left (due to closing time), the talking was down to a regular dining level. We opted for individual dishes instead of the tasting menu, but it probably would have ended up costing the same as what we ordered: 2 starters, 2 mains, and 2 desserts. You get eight dishes with the tasting menu. We ordered the sashimi and duck confit to start. The sashimi was alright, but I felt like there were too many things on the plate. The avocado, jalapeño, and cucumber worked best and everything else could have been left off. The duck was by far my favorite dish of the night. We were served a thigh with the leg attached and the skin was nice and crispy while the meat itself was tender and juicy; I cleaned the bone. The Asian sauce served with the duck was nice, but nothing special. Next was the slow cooked beef and fried sole. The beef was so tender you could cut it easily with a fork. The jus was good, but the veggies were not cooked much. I had carrot squares that required some effort to pierce with a fork; one actually flew off the plate while I was trying to pierce it. We substituted the mash for their truffle version and it was well worth it. It was a bowl of smooth whipped spuds with that decadent hit of truffle. I had a bite of the fish and honestly it tasted like fried cod which isn't a bad thing but I was hoping it would have a distinct taste. Lastly for dessert we got the panna cotta and a blueberry upside-down cake. Never had the former but it was set perfectly (had a little wiggle) and came with a sorbet to contrast the sweetness. I hate to say it but the cake reminded me of instant muffin mix my mom used to make as a kid. It was okay but felt out of place in this type of restaurant. Both desserts came with a dark chocolate-written message from the staff which was a nice touch. Overall, it was a romantic place with good food but the noise volume kinda detracted from the ambiance. The servers were very attentive and made the experience delightful. The food was mostly good, but considering the price, I was expecting a home run for each dish. Still, we enjoyed ourselves and will probably come back one day.

Ornate venue serving throwback American steakhouse food amid custom china & fancy chandeliers.
Marcel was amazing. Food was top notch. Service was amazing, and the atmosphere had me feeling like I was in a Italian mob movie. Lvord every corner of the place. Steak was cooked beautifully, sides are so tasty I wanted to lick the dish. Great place for a date or a night out.

The restaurant is amazing! The service and staff are phenomenal! Never experienced service like this before. The food was delicious, one of the many best steaks I have had, literally melts like butter. Will definitely be coming back again.

What an experience!! Service and food are unreal, thought is put into everything they do. From the moment you sit down you are treated so well and food is delicious and steaming hot when it gets to the table. Celebrating my anniversary with my husband here and they surprised us with the stampped menus and gave us a complimentary drink, amazing so say the least!

Went here for Wedding Anniversary and the evening started out great! Had Happy Anniversary written on our menus. And the servers acknowledged that it was our Anniversary when we were first seated. But by the end of the evening it was Happy Birthday to me. SMH.

I had a dinner date here in May and it was so wonderful. We have been checking off Ford Fry restaurants and this was a great experience and delicious food. We each ordered a cut of steak and tried 2 different potatoes- the whipped one with cheese was a MUST. We tried escargot for the first time and it was delicious too. The bread service was out of this world. The staff was very courteous of our time and helped answer any questions we had. We will definitely be returning for special events.

Steakhouse institution serving prime beef & seafood in clubby rooms with an old-school vibe.
Steak is the best item here. It is definitely worthwhile if you’re in town and looking for one of the best steak places. The bone-in items are the best (think “Bones” as a restaurant name).
5 / 5
The service was superb. My husband and I always dine at a high end steak house several times per year and this place is one of our favorites. The wait staff is so friendly and will absolutely help cater the menu to your preference. 10/10 highly recommended!

Simply - the best filet - ANYWHERE. SUPERIOR to the best steakhouses in Atlanta, New Orleans, Dallas, Washington D.C., Naples, Palm Beach, Vegas. Historic, quaint, exceptional dining experience. P.S. - There IS a dress code - no shorts, caps, etc. We were in 'dressy' casual shorts (Columbia) - yet, they accommodated us by allowing us to dine at the Bar. We thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated the immediately responsive, friendly, professional service at Bar by bartenders.

Classic menu of Northern Italian pastas & antipasto in an upscale, white-linen space with a patio.
We dined here on 28 August 2023. The La Grotta is carrying a dress code, which we find very appropriate for a nice place like this. We arrived in our Lyft Lux, and even though it was a nice series 5 BMW, it still seemed small compared to the other cars there. No doubt that this is an upscale restaurant. We found our way into the building and down in the cellar, where the restaurant is located. Very nice atmosphere up front. The people in front of us got greeted by first name, so it is obvious that the locals are returning diners - which is always a good indication of a good restaurant. We were also well received even though we were first timers. We were shown to our table and immediately we were greeted by our main waiter. A vey nice, polite, knowledgeable, professional waiter who was not afraid to recommend a few courses. Two other waiters served us as well, and they were all of the same caliber. La Grotta has a full bar, so your imagination is the limit for what you want as aperitif. We chose an Aperol Spritze. Very nicely mixed. La Grotta has an extensive wine list with a focus on Italian wines but basically covering the world. The price range goes from about 50 USD for a bottle of wine to 1,000+ USD - so there is a wine for all sizes of wallets. We found a very nice bottle for about 90 USD. The menu is quite extensive covering all the Italian specialties you can think off. We had a difficult time choosing from the many delicious choices. With a little help from the waiter we however managed. We ordered each a starter and a main course - and we shared a dessert - a wonderful Tiramisu. We were lucky dining at La Grotta in the black truffle season - tasted superb. This is definitely a place to dine if you are in Atlanta.

The service is top top level. Food is great. Truffle options are nice item to have to experiment.

Years ago when I asked my Dad what his favorite type of food was, he said 'fresh, made from scratch pasta'. So when his sisters came in town to surprise him for his 60th birthday, we brought him here. We had a such wonderful experience and everyone raved about how great everything was. My husband and I now go ever year on his birthday to honor his memory and La Grotta helps us remember him by doing everything just as impeccably as they did on that first visit. I will forever love this place, not just for the food but how well (unbeknownst to them) they help me honor his birthday!

I’ve heard so many great things about La Grotta and my boyfriend took me for an early valentines dinner. I was so excited for this. First of all, they have valet parking, you go inside and take elevator all the way down. We were sat down as soon as we arrived (reservations only) our waiter’s name was Billy and he is probably one of the best waiters I’ve ever had!!! He was very helpful and guided us through the entire menu along with great recommendations. I had wild bore and it was a 10/10 my bf had a thick cut of veal also amazing!! But my absolute favorite thing about La Grotta was the dessert, the BEST tiramisu and torta I have ever tried.

I was treated like a VIP from parking to seating to eating. I have special dietary requirements & the waiter suggested an off menu item that was exactly suited to my needs. The part that surprised me was the bill was actually less than I thought it would be once the tally was complete. I ate outside on a beautiful night in complete comfort. They even have heater stands. Do yourself a favor, indulge in an evening here!

Upscale hotel restaurant serving artfully plated American food made from seasonal ingredients.
Chef tasting menu was sublime! An exquisite journey. Congratulations to Atlas on their Michelin Star. This is an experience worth having. Just be sure to budget $800-$1000 for dinner for a couple.

Atlas was certainly one of the best restaurants I've eaten at in Atlanta in a while. It is located inside the St Regis and while some hotel restaurants can be underwhelming, this did not disappoint. The restaurant is intimate and great for date nights. We visited for our anniversary dinner on Tuesday and I'm still reminiscing about the experience. We had the chef's tasting menu and given the price, it was worth the money. The portions were very well sized and the taste of the different dishes were flavorful. I don't think there was any thing I tried that night and didn't enjoy. The Waldorf salad of sorts was very different and nothing like I had expected - in a good way. The squash dish with the lobster was delicious! I really enjoyed the Westholme wagyu and oh my goodness the lime, vanilla, and pineapple was so good! The menu was well curated and I have had the luxury of dining at several established restaurants. I loved our time at Atlas and the service and I'm sure we'll be back in the future.

I chose Atlas to have my daughter's intimate wedding reception and it did not disappoint. Aside from the phenomenal food and beautiful decor, Derek, our head waiter, was SUPERB. He stepped in when the front desk at St. Regis wouldn't. He basically went over and above! Nowadays, you don't see this type of service. He was the epitome of professional and really completed one of the most special evenings for our family. Thank you, Derek!

We tried the current pop up restaurant with Atlas called Atlas Maisonette (Atlas Underground). It just opened 2 weeks ago so they were have some work out some kinks and we ended up waiting 30min for our table. Once we were seated we received apologies for the long wait and they took care of our drinks for the hassle of waiting so long for our table. The food was delicious. They accommodated our food restrictions and the substitutions items was so good! We enjoyed our time. My only other comment is that it took a while between courses so we ended up spending more time dining than we had anticipated.

I visited Atlas for the first time and was not disappointed. I made my reservation and there was a cocktail table waiting for me. The staff were engaging, knowledgable and very easy to communicate with. I took full advantage of the tasting menu and everything from my cocktail to the dessert course was nothing short of stellar. The seasonal menu looked amazing but if you really want to see the chefs play, do the tastings! Every course had its own presentation. There was enough time to snap a couple of photos and dig in before the food lost its perfect temperature. They truly didn't miss! There is a dress code, so check the website before arriving. But reserve a table, and go taste for yourselves!
