    The grilled cheese is made with four types of melted cheese on Parmesan-crusted egg bread. It’s sturdy and oh so good. Follow up with their James Beard Award winning White Chocolate Banana Cream Pie. Read more

    Crab cakes were good but everything was soaked in butter. For a $20+ entree just expected a little more subtlety and differences in flavor. Phenomenal service though, Brian was great!

    Try the White Chocolate Banana Cream Pie - And James Beard award-winning too. Base is what I'd call a shortbread crust. Soooo divine!

    The ribeye was delicious. Melt in your mouth. No steak sauce needed. We sat on stools by chefs and watched them cook.

    Beautiful interior (and exterior) but food just a bit boring and overpriced in the way it is at most Buckhead Life owned restaurants are. They were awesome in the 90s but that was a while ago.

    The Bloody Mary was disappointing, possibly the worst I've had anywhere. Also, pass on the 'Best Wine Cooler Ever'. I do recommend the 'Siberian White Russian' and the 'The 18th Hole Arnold Palmer'.
