High-concept restaurant serving innovative tasting menus & wine pairings in a stylish setting.
Had a very enjoyable 8 course tasting with wine pairings that were excellent with each course. It was great to sit in the chef's seating and watch the preparation and plating of the presentations, as the dishes were each tastefully designed and artfully presented. Surprisingly, as a die-hard meat lover, my favorite was the asparagus dish. The added truffle risotto course was also exceptional. I enjoyed the urban chic atmosphere and highly recommend Lazy Betty with plans to return in the near future.

First thing you notice when you enter is the unassuming building the restaurant is in. Don't let that fool you, however. The food and service are on par with some of the best restaurants I've dined in. We tried the four course menu with wine pairing. Gracie, our server and somme was super friendly and gave us amazing recommendations. The menu itself is thoughtfully crafted. The ambience is amazing. It's a perfect location to celebrate occasions or just an elaborate date night.

Wanted to love this place #local #independents but just couldn't. It hasn't quite hit the flavor for cost point. Lots of distinct elements in each dish but few cohesive bites. And some parts that were misses. For example the tile fish - my piece wasn't well trimmed and was unpleasant to eat. The one clam on the side was superfluous and didn't tie into the dish except that both were seafood. Some dish temperatures seemed off. Service was amazing. Excellent enthusiastic staff. The dishes just aren't there yet.

Lovely fine dining restaurant with an interesting tasting menu. The cocktails were well done and complimented the food nicely. This is one of the best fine dining options in ATL.

The dishes are there!!! With produce up there on the standards of restaurants in Tokyo, this place was quite impressive. Even the small portion of asparagus was worth the price, considering its' flavors were on several levels. And, the whiskey list was affordable.

Colonial era–inspired tavern serving seafood, sandwiches & craft cocktails at Krog Street Market.
The menu has a wide range of things but it’s all delicious. Sherry flight is great as well. Definitely book ahead like they recommend.

Great service and atmosphere! They have a decent wine list and cocktails are popular here. Had their scallops - it was okay, but their desserts were for me the highlight of the night. The chocolate mousse was so good with a good crunch from the cacao nibs and a nice salty finish from the sea salt flakes. The tres leche cake was chef's kiss - perfect amount of sweetness and when I tell you I wanted to lick the plate clean.. it was THAT good!

I like Krig Street Market. Iwas headed to another restaurant when I ended up here. There's nothing I can say went wrong. The food ame to the table hot and the service was on point. This place just had a nice feel. When we left the hostess even gave me a warm hug and a thank you for coming.

We had a group of 3 for dinner at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, 8/16/22. You can park for free in the Krog lot or valet for $8. There is also free street parking. We got 2 appetizers and each got an entree. Here’s what I tried: - Georgia Peach Salad ($14): Super good! We got it without the bacon, and even without the bacon, it had so much flavor. - Poh’s Eggplant ($14): OMG wow. Delicious. Highly recommend. - Summer Tomato Tagliatelle ($32): Very good, but for $32 and no meat, I was expecting a bigger portion. - Roasted Diver Scallops ($34): Good, but the portion was kind of small! My husband and friend got the Owl’s Head ($13). They both really liked it! I would definitely go back to try more drinks! Ticonderoga was really good. The inside is super fun, with colorful string lights. The service was outstanding! Hannah was our waitress and she really took care of us! I would go back for the Poh’s Eggplant and for drinks.

Upscale oyster bar & cocktail lounge featuring globally inspired seafood & custom drinks.
No reservation needed for a Monday night party of two. There’s a parking deck very close to the restaurant ($7/hr). There were two ladies at the front who were all smiles and so pleasant. They even wished us a pleasant evening/dining experience. All the food was delicious! We ordered baked oysters, al la carte fresh oysters, fry bread, radicchio salad, coconut rice and the lobster roll, which is more of a slider than full size bun but still filling. Total was around $153 not including tip. Our server was Brill and he was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Gave a thorough description of the menu, was precise and quick with service. You can tell he very experienced and gave great table side banter throughout service. The customer service alone is reason to come back for every occasion. Every single person was so warm and genuinely courteous and it truly made our night. Amazing food, impeccable staff and breathtaking atmosphere. Thank you guys so much for 5star service and unwavering high standards. See you again soon!

Our server Taylor provided friendly and attentive service. She even helped arrange some shade for the late afternoon sun on the upper patio. Oysters were superb as expected! Snapper crudo was very nice with the fresh strawberry flavor. Coconut rice keeps me coming back again and again!

This place is absolutely fantastic! My partner and I have visited multiple times. Yesterday, we made the choice to enjoy the outdoor seating. Our main reason for coming here is the delectable Lobster Roll. We both savored the lobster roll, while I indulged in a refreshing regular mimosa and a delightful sunrise drink. The atmosphere, attentive waitstaff, and every aspect of this establishment captivated me completely. I also like that the water didn't taste like tap water, but more like filtered refreshing water.

THIS PLACE is such a vibe. It quickly turning into one of my regular spots. They always have the best seafood. Curated drinks and friendly staff with good suggestions. I highly recommend the broiled oysters, branzino, mussels and lobster roll. A 10/10 for me.

Delicious! Everything we ordered was good! I had the collar fish to try something new and it was amazing☺️. We also ordered the fry bread (yummy), coconut fried rice ( vegetarian but very umami), and salt and pepper squid (great app) and they were all delicious. Great first date spot or girls night out but also a great option to just call in and pick up when you get a craving 😋. I’ll be back!

This 1945-era institution draws locals & tourists for Southern comfort food in a homey space.
Let me start by saying all the good things you heard about Mary Mac's Tea Room are true. This place is incredible. We were greeted right away and had the best server ever. Tried the chicken livers which weren't my favorite but that's not their fault. I'm sure if you like liver, it would be great. The collards and corn bread were delicious. My shrimp and grits were fresh and tasted perfect. So many good things to try here and the location just drips with history. Highly recommend!

Saw this restaurant while watching an episode of Atlanta Eats. I really liked the atmosphere of this establishment. First let me say there's plenty of parking behind the restaurant. When you arrive it doesn't look big from the outside but it bigger than you think inside. There's plenty of rooms for seating and each room has its own individual name. The food was delicious and the service was great. When you get seated you'll notice pencils in the middle of the table alone with paper with different sections. You fill out each section per course to avoid errors. I like that concept, the food came out fast, hot and delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, good vibes also a place to bring family and friends.

When you step through their doors you’re stepping back in time. So much history comes across in every room. We were immediately greeted by our waitress who explained their unique way of ordering. I couldn’t begin to explain but pay attention, we were gazing at all the historic pictures and really didn’t get it at first. There was a large party having a birthday that kept us entertained with their fancy hats and singing waiter. We had to have the chicken and fried green tomatoes. If I’m being honest the chicken was okay but the sides were amazing. It’s a total must stop when you’re in Atlanta and I’m definitely going back next time we’re in town.

This was an awesome dining experience! First you have to appreciate the deep historic legacy this place has. The food was delicious, a blend of southern soul and high dining in terms of service and presentation. The place wasn't too crowded, but as we were leaving, there were crowds flowing in. Just mentioning this to be prepared if you decide to come during a busy time.

An absolute must go. This location is a well-preserved piece of history that feels like a warm hug. The food epitomizes southern comfort and the selection is vast. Each room has a unique feel to it and each time you visit, you will learn something new. My party and I went all in and ordered appetizers, mains, and dessert. The peach cobbler was to die for! The servings are bountiful and each time I go, there are plenty leftovers to bring home. Despite being an historical southern food location, there are a number of vegetarian options on the menu. Don’t leave without trying the mac n’ cheese!

Louisiana meets Vietnam with boiled or fried seafood, plus stiff cocktails & a playful atmosphere.
My boyfriend and I came after work. That was the first time I tried raw oysters, I was surprised because they tasted really good. Even though it's not a live oyster, the taste doesn't disappoint. And also we ordered boiled snow crab. I was very happy with their service, especially with Chris. He helped and taught us how to open the snow crab shell to make it easier to enjoy. Thank you.

I had driven past this restaurant at least 50 times and never been in. It’s very cute inside and the food was incredible. I went two weeks ago and have been thinking about the Po Boy ever since. Will definitely be going back! My husband and his parents really enjoyed the seafood boil they got. Everyone loved the fried oysters!

Found this place on google maps, then reserved a table on resy. Arrived early on a Sunday and was accommodated by the wonderful attendant. Service was a fast, food was great. The server could use a bit more training, but she could’ve also been new. She was extremely nice. I had the half shrimp meal and my partner had the shrimp burger. Everything was delicious.

Been here a handful of times. I am thankful for the easy bike rack access. I love the combination of Asian and Cajun flavors. Filling portions. This time they ran out of papaya salad which is one of my favorite Thai dishes. The mixed greens were a poor substitute. The crab claw dip was heavenly. The andouille on my rice and beans was cooked too hard. The Zombie #2 was delicious. I highly recommend this special place!

We visited Bon Ton from out of town during our stay in Midtown. We started with half a dozen raw oysters, which were just what you would expect. We then had the Bon Ton bowl with the braised meat and carrots as well as the 5" Buford Hwy hot fried shrimp Po boy and this is when the food became truly unique and stood out. A fantastic blend of Vietnamese and Cajun fusion! Both dishes were served with a side of hot sauce with dried shrimp, seafood flavors, and chilis. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Atlanta!

Hilton Hotel staple serves Pacific Rim dishes in a lively space with kitschy, tropical-themed decor.
Stopped in to eat during DragonCon. The hostess stated it was reservation only but that there was a table available between reservations if we didn't mind eating and not lingering to talk. We agreed. I had the Asian salad, and their known for Mai Tai. Both were really good. My friend had the Salmon and that too was very good. The atmosphere was friendly along with the staff, even with how busy it was. Went back again and had the fried rice, and it too was really delicious. A great place to eat.

Hostess was not ready for work when we got there she was watching some show and acted as if we disturbed her. She was aggressive when she throw down the menu’s really defensive in attitude. I didn’t like it. I get it, we came 45 minutes before you closed😒😪big deal, you’re not cooking or serving. Hence why I gave you a 3* for service, if Tiffany wasn’t our server it could have been less. TIFANNY= Customer Service What an amazing individual, her product knowledge was on point, she told us about the history of the company, how the meals were prepared, she made our drink recommendation, she was just on top of things. She was legit humble and willing to take care of us. The ambiance was great, combined with the decor and the Tuesday night live band this was the place to be tonight. The meal was worth every dime. We definitely will be back!!!!

We are big Tiki bar fans! Been looking forward to this one for a while. Loved everything during the whole experience. The service, atmosphere, drinks and food were excellent. Whether you’re a tiki fan or just looking for a great date night Trader Vic’s is an institution and we will be back!

We had a trader vics in Chicago when I was a child and it closed down! My brother is obsessed with tiki stuff and came upon this restaurant! Same restaurant that was in Chicago. We ate there on Friday I had the curry vegetable and added shrimp! It was one of the best meals I've had in a very long time. Server was so so. Had my first mai tai there because they're the ones that actually came out with the drink Food is a little pricy but that's everywhere! But the atmosphere as well makes the price also worth it! There house made Peanut butter is on top We liked it so much that we booked for the next night! Better service but I would have done the scallops and not the salmon! Can't wait to come back

Chic restaurant serving New American cuisine & cocktails in a plant-filled space with a glass roof.
I really enjoyed the great atmosphere and cute decor of the restaurant. The service was good, but unfortunately the food was just okay. However, I absolutely loved the cocktail drinks! On the downside, one thing that really bothered me was that the waiter placed silverware on the table without cleaning it first, which I found to be quite unpleasant.
3 / 5
I recommend this place. It is overpriced but very beautiful. It's worth it to visit once. We had two cocktails each, an appetizer and one entree each. They had a Dj and the atmosphere was great, a bit crowded but we had our own table in the corner and we could enjoy a little bit of privacy. It was a Friday night and they had a show with fans and bubble guns, which we really cherished.
5 / 5
Good but not great. This is a niche restaurant that will not appeal to everyone. It’s attractively decorated and the service was wonderful. I visited with a group of several friends for brunch. I had a Bloody Mary, deviled egg appetizer, and the steak and eggs main. Everything was good but the deviled eggs were fantastic! One friend had the lobster omelet and another had the avocado toast and they both really liked their choices. Overall we were happy.
4 / 5
The place is beautiful, and the food is as well. However, it's unfortunate that the food is no more than 'okay.' The overly strict menu limits you to choosing one starter, one entree, and one dessert, preventing you from enjoying and trying multiple starters to share. In the end, there were two of us, and we ended up with a bill of almost $300, which was not worth the price.

This restaurant has a really great atmosphere! We came for Brunch. Visually the food LOOKS very pretty. Both the decor and food presentation make for great social media photos if that's what you're looking for. I couldn't say the taste is worth the price, & adding two small pieces of fried chicken to the waffles was an additional $18. Basic cocktails are $18, mocktails are $15. Again, visually pleasing but nothing spectacular. My table mistakenly paid the gratuity twice for a party of 4. We did not realize a 20% gratuity was already included on the original itemized bill as the signature slip they provided after payment has a spot for tip as well as a "provided gratuity calculation". This was our fault for not paying closer attention but we felt this was a bit misleading.
