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.

Sleek Southern outpost of famed NY-based steakhouse chain with cocktails & grilled meats.
I would NOT RECOMMEND this place to anyone civilized. Let’s start with the service, I barely noticed any servers during happy hour, but of course at 6:45 we had a server who appeared not nice or pleasant at all but she was ready to take our order. I think her name was Zeta. We ordered several things as you can see in the receipt and to be honest we sent everything back at least once because it ALL was cold. THE MANAGER was not nice either. She came out and with a stern voice, approved the order to be recooked but she was not happy at all with us. The sad truth is, the majority of our food was cold and it took over an hour to get to our table. The place was almost empty at 5:30 and at 7:45 we were still waiting on food. There were only a few at the bar, a regular Tuesday night and let’s just say they failed. The food was of good quality but the service and temperature made the food less than desirable for me. I would not recommend anyone spend their hard earned dollars here. I usually don’t post reviews but I thought about those, who like myself, might have come into town to spend time with loved ones and ended up in a place like this and then realized if they had only READ THE REVIEWS!! Well, here is an honest review!! Enjoy!

The restaurant is beautiful inside. The staff was friendly. The food is overly priced for the quality and quantity. The lobster Mac was 1 out of 10. The lamb chops did taste decent, however say no to the $12 truffle butter. Honestly the best food item on my plate was the bread.

Zeta was an amazing server, very attentive, friendly and personable! I wish she would be my server all the time. We tried the fried calamari, Bone Marrow, Lobster Fettuccine Pasta, Brussel Sprouts & Lobster Mac, The passionfruit cocktail was such a delight! I recommend everything i had. Although i wish they had valet parking.

I gave STK a second chance since my Birthday dinner was a disappointment. Whitley, the manager and Dalano, my server made it right this time, as I received phenomenal service. The food was delicious this time as well. Thanks for going above and beyond and winning back a STK customer.

This was amazing! It was a wonderful experience, I went here with my wife for our anniversary. She enjoyed herself. The food and drinks was amazing. I had 2 old fashions a salmon dish, and the Wagyu steak... the food was so amazing. Our waiter Ashley was funny, attentive, and very accommodating. I'm definitely going to go back again. It's definitely a place to experience and enjoy. The music and the vibe was on point!

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 :)

Our first time tonight and everything was perfect. Jordon managed our service and he was fabulous. Great restaurant with a warm welcome and amazing food. Perfect no-rush service and perfect portion. Thank you so much for an enjoyable dinner.

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.

Fia was amazing. The composition of this Mediterranean menu was exceptionally good. Very creative fusion of Indian, Persian, Italian and other Mediterranean ingredients and flavors. Everything beautifully platted in beautiful dishes. Every single dish tasted great and out of this world. We were a group of 10 ppl and everyone loved their meals. The octopus, prawn curry and potato gnocchi were my favorites. The service was great and the executive chef greeted us at our table. We will definitely go back again! They made my birthday a wonderful experience. Thank you to the Fia and Burgess team.

Great spot for a casual upscale dinner or lunch. Would recommend almost anything from their wood fired grill. Great service and decor as well.

The reviews are spot on for this restaurant. The food is amazing. Service is outstanding. Beautiful decor. I love that you can see everything being cooked in the kitchen. The Burgess Hotel is a beautiful boutique hotel that offers the perfect setting for Fia. We started with the grilled meatballs. So flavorful and not too heavy, We both ended up ordering the scallops with the risotto and shared the brussel sprouts. Everything was seasoned perfectly and I loved the presentation with the micro greens that add a nice texture to the meal. Another gem in Atlanta that is a must. I have to reiterate that the entire staff at the hotel, bar, and Fia a wonderful. Impeccable service and lots of smiling faces made the night even more enjoyable.

Came for Sunday dinner. The food is great, the staff is great, the ambiance is intimate. They lose a star for kitchen delays. The main entrée took 40 mins to plate after the appetizer was delivered. Don’t come here if you’re looking for a quick meal. Come here to catch up with long conversation. Drinks are average, on par with any major hotel. The appetizers here set this place apart from the rest.

All of the dishes we had were excellent. The scallops, shrimp curry, and short ribs. Short ribs were melt in your mouth good and easy to handle as they were pre-cut. Our server was a true professional. Big shout out to John who helped make the evening truly enjoyable. I will return and recommend Fia to friends.

Storied chain serving high-end steakhouse fare, seafood & diverse wines in clubby surrounds.
Beautiful new location inside the Westin. Traditional home style decor. The lobster was tremendous. Professionally served. The bacon as an appetizer was great. The Wedge was great. Service could have been more attentive given the fact there were so few people there- only 3 tables on a Sunday evening.

Came here for a quick dinner & it was my first time. The food and drinks were good. Steak was cooked properly & my drink was yummy. However the service could have been a little better considering it was only us in the restaurant

The waitress was very attentive to our party of 8. We had the Nova scotia 🦞 it was huge. It came with a separate salad and dessert. The sides are delightful. The creamed spinach was the best side on the menu. Desserts looked good but were not the best overall . Great dining experience.

I rolled up to this beautiful location inside the Westin. After working an event, I was exhausted and wanted something good and quick in a nice setting. I got just that. I was professionally greeted, treated, and served. I added a bacon appetizer to the Wedge, which was great. My server was efficient, and let me be, and I didn't feel rushed even tho it was late. I'm not sure what happened to my pictures, but I might have been too hungry for all that! Lol! I'll definitely be back!

Expensive, but worth it! Our server treated us really well, he was kind and gave us a lot of insight into cooking methods since we're on a strict diet. I was impressed that he knew so much about how things are cooked to begin with, above and beyond what I would expect from a server! The food was perfect as far as I know; perfectly charred, perfectly medium rare. Just a quality place.

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.

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).

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.
