    The prix fixe might include wonderfully intense, aged-on-the-bone duck breast with peach puree and dill oil; the chicken liver tart featured regularly as an a la carte item is outstanding. Read more

    Recently rated 3 stars by Creative Loafing, Staplehouse is the perfect mix of homestyle, high-end food with perfect service. Make sure to ask for their tasting menu to go with the selection of wines. Read more

    The dining room holds 40 seats, and reservations are a challenge. Try showing up at 5:15 p.m. for a slot at the eight-seat bar, or at 7:15 p.m. when the first bar seating tends to turn over. Read more

    Hands down the best restaurant in Atlanta - and one of the best in the country! Not only was the food creative and delicious, the service was impeccable. I can't wait to go back!

    Chef Ryan Smith's tasting menus are garnered nothing but critical praise. Staplehouse was one of five national finalists for the 2016 James Beard Foundation's Best New Restaurant award. Read more

    Went for Kick the Cask. Excited about this Giving Kitchen owned restaurant. Beautiful space in O4W. Loved the snack that reminded me of Thai rice crisps.

    VERY special occasion place. Book early! Expensive and hard to get in, but earns every bit of its praise. LOVE the fixed menu--no choices, you eat the courses they bring and they're all delicious.

    Creative and inventive cooking at its best. Can order a la carte now. They change the menu regularly but if grandmas potato bread is on the menu, it's unassumingly delicious.

    Staplesmith's puffy chips were inspired by surprisingly humble ingredients: scraps! The half-dozen-step process produces what's been called "the best chips you’ll ever taste in your life." Read more

    Set an alarm to make reservations when they make them available. A 4 person table is ideal so you can order everything in the menu and share.

    The tasting dinner was really good. Go with the alcohol tasting too. Totally enhances the flavor of the food. Really delicious experience.

    If you've been trained by the excesses of other tasting menus to shudder at the term, give one of Smith's five-course menus a chance. Read more

    I was disappointed in the price, the hardcore reservation rules, and the taste. The cocktails and wine selection were on point. The food looks beautiful but it wasn’t incredible.
