"We had an enjoyable dinner with great service and food. The menu has something for everyone, and the entrees were perfectly prepared. We very seldom order many side dishes, but the mashed potatoes were fabulous (probably all cream and butter). Management keeps a good eye on things to be sure all is going well. This upscale restaurant makes dining out a pleasure especially if a special occasion or you want the exceptional dinner."

Our kitchen's formula is product+technique+creativity2. The results are new interpretations of everyday food, expertly engineered into modern cuisine.<br /><br />edison: food+drink lab fills the gap in the dining scene for the neighborhood joint that serves polished, modern world-class food with an everyday familiarity and comfort. A daily, inventive menu that traverses the chasm between haute cuisine and comfort food, each dish will be a bit familiar, but at once modern.

"We eat here often because the food is excellent and the entire staff makes you feel welcomed. Even the bartenders Ryan and Keith remember the wines we like so we do not even look at the wine list. Chef Jeannie keeps an interesting, creative and changing menu that keeps us going back. Her recent Paella entrée was the best. Craft cocktails are very popular as well as the local craft beers. It doesn't matter whether you want drinks and small bites or regular entrees, it is always enjoyable at Edison's. We have never had a bad experience and eat there almost weekly. Suggest reservations on the weekends."

"This highly rated restaurant is weird. It is not fancy outside or inside, very casual, limited menu, but what they have is great food. We love the octopus nori. Slice very thin and not rubbery. Many sushi (nori) options, a little pricey but high quality. There is also a wonderful appetizer of a crab (or lobster, cannot remember) mixture on a piece of grilled sour dough bread--absolutely delicious! You have to be adventuresome to go here because it is not a "steak & potatoes" place. My only compliant is the entrees tend to be small portions, yet still pricey. Free valet parking behind the building."

Whether dining at brunch, lunch or dinner, Article 14 is about the experience. It’s a much needed midday break from the office, a cocktail after work or a unforgettable meal before a night out in Midtown. This culinary adventure is led by Legacy Restaurant Partners’ Corporate Executive Chef, Chris Bloubaum. A classically French trained chef, Chris combines classic regional fare with fresh flavors of locally and garden-grown ingredients. And if you are a connoisseur of great art, you must check out the “Atlanta Lawyer Wall of Fame” art installation from Alan Avery Art Company, a focal point of this Midtown hot spot.

"We go to Atlanta many times a year and always eat at least once here. Last week we actually ate there twice as we were in Atlanta for a week. Atlanta has many fabulous restaurants and we eat around when there. However, Article 14 provides a low key atmosphere, with less noise and crowds than many other places. There is a nice bar, wine choices are good, and the menu offers fabulous appetizers, salads, burgers, and entrees. We love the charcuterie plate, shrimp risotto, and caesar salad with white anchovy. The restaurant is small but offers a quiet relaxing atmosphere, and is mostly locals from the area. Free valet parking in a garage 25 yards away from the front door; easy access. Staff is friendly and prices reasonable."

Initially opened as Food 101 in 2005 and later rebranded as Rosebud in 2009, this staple of the Virginia Highlands/Morningside neighborhood has emerged as the quintessential neighborhood restaurant. Rosebud has built its reputation on supporting local growers and serving a creative fare of Southern inspired American cuisine that is approachable and sensible. Our bar program mirrors our philosophy about our food, and both of these entities are enjoyed in a comfortable and inviting atmosphere that is very much a reflection of the character of our neighborhood. Please join us for dinner any night of the week, and be sure not to miss out on one of Atlanta's most popular brunches, served Friday thru Sunday.<br /><br />Chef/Owner Ron Eyester, competed on Bravo's Top Chef Season 12 in Boston. <br />

"I eat here every time I am in Atlanta. It is nice to go to a neighborhood restaurant that has mostly locals who come for great food, service, and very reasonable prices. There are seasonal menu entrees as well as the year-round choices. I seldom eat fried foods, but I had the fried chicken dinner. The moist chicken breast with mashed potatoes and green beens and cole slaw was the best ever. Good selection of appetizers, dinner size salads, sandwiches, and entrees. Would suggest reservations because this small restaurant stays busy, especially on weekends."

Seasons 52 is a fresh grill and wine bar featuring a seasonal menu and an award-winning wine list. Inspired by the fresh appeal of the farmer’s market, Seasons 52 uses ingredients at the peak of ripeness to highlight what’s good now. Through rustic cooking techniques like oak-fire grilling and brick-oven roasting, Seasons 52 creates dishes that are naturally lighter. From signature flatbreads and Mini Indulgence desserts to an international selection of 100 wines, including more than 52 offered by the glass. We also feature live entertainment at our piano bar nightly, there’s always something new to discover.<br /><br />Open for lunch and dinner daily, with extended hours on the weekend. <br /><br />If you are searching for a place to host your next group function, Seasons 52 is the perfect setting for your private or semi-private event. We also feature a Chef’s table for smaller groups or more intimate settings. For more information, visit our website at www.Seasons52.com. <br />

"Buckhead Seasons 52 always provides great service and excellent food preparation. Not only was our server outstanding, but a server we had once before came over to say hi and see how we were doing. The manager (whom we had never met) also came over to see how our dinner experience was. On a very cold night this was a super place to dine with our dinners being served hot and promptly. Free Valet parking is especially good. The seasonal menu was very nice."

"We have eaten at Seasons 52 in Tampa and Atlanta and both of these locations have been good. However, the new one at University Town Center in Sarasota was not good. It seems they are understaffed in the kitchen and the servers (while very polite) are not educated enough about the food. It took forever to get anything we ordered. If you asked the server a specific question about the food, he would go and ask but would be gone for 15 minutes. We ordered an appetizer fro the table of roasted olives (very good) but it took almost 30 minutes to get them. Our dinner entrees took over 45 minutes to arrive after the order was place. I ordered the pork tenderloin (I have had at Atlanta Season's 52), and the server said they prepare it medium which is good. But it arrived medium well and was very dry. I did not complain because it took to long to get. I believe this location has not worked out the kinks of a new restaurant because the other locations we have been to have been better and more efficient. The restaurant is beautiful, the staff is friendly, but the food and the efficiency were not good."

"Great food, great staff, great time. What more can be said? As a frequent diner at Edison's, the ever changing menu always has interesting dishes, from the cheese board to the entree. Food is always prepared well and servers bring it promptly from the kitchen when ready. Weekends are especially busy so reservations needed. We are never disappointed at Edison's."

"Our 1st time visit. Chic interior and very friendly host desk. Not a good selection of wines by the glass and bottles over priced. Food is mediocre at best. Appetizers are expensive and some did not taste homemade. This is just another chain restaurant and nothing special. The noise level is excessive on weekends. Unless you want to hangout in the lounge (nice big high tops), I would pass for better quality places to eat."
