    So the fries are amazing!! The Lawrence burger is unparalleled. Not over done or sloppy, a very nice mix of flavor and texture. #Perfection!

    Whiskey Woebegone and the duck breast, when available 😀

    Fantastic wine list and interesting cocktails. Super friendly and hip staff made us old fogies feel great.

  • Marcelo E.

    Great place for brunch al fresco with friends. All egg dishes are great and the house Bloody Mary is to die for.

    Really wanted to love this place. Disappoints in beer selection, food and staff.

    Great patio!

    Lady Lawrence, if u into strong taste

    Gio Aguilar · April 21
  • Connor M.

    Very mediocre and a little pricey

    Connor Murphy · March 18
  • Ben O.

    Mussels were good. Burger was terribly overcooked. Won't be back, but you could do worse.

    Ben Oliver · February 21
  • Cory W.

    Go for the cocktails. Go somewhere else for the food. Kitchen is slow and menu doesn't make your mouth water at all.

    Sunday night burger and brew: beer is half price with the purchase of a burger. The Provence was a good choice and the lady Lawrence is a great drink too!

    The red romaine small plate is anything but the obligatory salad on the menu. Read more

    The atmosphere feels polished without being shellacked of character, swank without being anywhere near stuffy, thankfully less noisy than the Midtown norm without being quiet. Read more

    Mixologist Eric Simpkins was serving the bar and stirred together a Lady Lawrence, a light and spring-appropriate cocktail that balances out the sweetness of crème de cassis with tea-infused vodka. Read more

    Complimentary valet parking in the Wells Fargo lot across the street

    Excellent fare at this Midtown location. Tasty menu, great service & beautiful location. I enjoy the assortment of craft cocktails, new patio & open floor plan. Friendly neighborhood spot. Valet too.

    Burger and fries are amazing...

    The cantaloupe gazpacho is out of this world, as is the "fish in chips"! And don't miss the Lady Lawrence, best drink in town. Chef is cute too.

    This wine is amazing. Check it.

    Lawrence is a great Midtown restaurant. Hype or no hype, I love variety in the hood. Just had lamb ribs, grilled oysters, and an old fashioned and all was delicious.

    Robert Payne · August 17, 2013

    The Dickens may be Atlanta's best bourbon cocktail

    Bill Brown · July 22, 2013

    the frisée salad with bacon and egg is amazing, as are the scallops. the waitstaff is happy-- no eager-- to explain everything on the menu.

    Erin Glenn · April 12, 2013
  • Martin J.

    For brunch, don't skip the fried egg + bentons bacon sammie.

    Martin Jacobson · March 3, 2013

    Super over-rated.

    Jayme Malkowski · February 24, 2013

    Get the Chef's table if you can. Less noise, quicker service and fun to watch the kitchen in action

    Drew Hawkins · December 29, 2012
  • Nikki

    The bartender is awful. Still don't have water after 45 minutes and have only been able to order an appetizer. The food is good, but I definitely won't sit at the bar again...

    Nikki · December 21, 2012
  • Mike W.

    If you want a good drink & like your classic cocktails, try their Old Fashion. They know what they're doing...

    I'm NOT the tofu type, but the Salt & Pepper Tofu was insanely delicious! Give it a won't regret it.

    Vodka espresso w/ absinthe is an excellent dessert cocktail!

    Nagzah Ali · June 8, 2012

    Fried green tomatoes are excellent! Get several small plates and split amongst the table.

    Nagzah Ali · June 8, 2012

    Try the "secret cocktail"... It's like love... In drinkable form.

    TJ Brooks · June 6, 2012
  • The Bite Life w.

    The Crispy Pig Ears are dope! You gotta try em! Don't let the name throw you off. They're more like potato chips.

  • The Bite Life w.

    The Lady Lawrence ain't bad if you like that ginger taste

  • The Bite Life w.

    The Honey Paloma is the ish!!! Best drink on the menu!

  • Shahrzad N.

    Lady Lawrence cocktail is must have here.

    I had the strip and it was really excellent. Don't just think "steak" in the traditional sense. Beautifully sliced and presented.

    Stephen Curry · May 5, 2012
  • Osahon T.

    If you are looking for the perfect drink for the most interesting man in the world, try The Gentleman

  • Haley T.

    This is one of those "quality, not quantity" places. Portions are small but exquisite.

    Around the time of my second cocktail, I finally relaxed and let myself accept the fact that the hype is more or less on point for the Lawrence. Read more
