    Dinner was just okay. Can't recommend for high end white tablecloth dinner. Manager explained that's just what to expect here. Really????????

  • Creative Loafing Atlanta

    Their cult menu item, a warm bowl of sticky toffee pudding, is a textbook example of decadence. The dense piece of sponge cake is covered in warm, buttery caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream. Read more

    Try the Mexican RX here, a cross between a Moscow Mule and a margarita. Tequila and smoky mezcal are blended with spicy ginger liqueur, agave nectar, and fresh lime juice. Drink up! Read more

    This spot epitomizes industrial elegance. It maintains a strong focus on southern style cooking, but with a refined personal touch. Taste comes first, not aw-shucks gimmickry. Read more

    The farm-to-table concept has stayed true to its roots, offering a different menu each evening, based on seasonality and that day’s delivery.

    Great Sunday brunch menu and some of the best cocktails in town. I've been a fan of this place since it first opened. Chef Jay never disappoints.

    You can't go wrong with the specialty cocktails - they're all AMAZING! And get the Brussels sprout salad - it's to die for!

    Not worth the cost. To many other quality restaurants to eat at with better quality for less $$$$.

    Very yummy food, modern Southern and excellent service. Octopus was incredible as well as the trout. The heritage of the chef shows.

    Focusing on New American and Southern food, father and son chefs get it right with perfectly-prepared meats, seasonal veggies and scrumptious desserts.

  • Om_Chanti

    Try the sunchoke and scallop soup. Perfectly seasoned. The pearl scallops had so much flavor. Citrusy-sweet.
