"While the staff was vey nice and the restaurant is a cool place, the menu is too limited for us. Lots of sauces and gravies. However the sushi was very good, especially the octopus. It was sliced very thin and was not chewy. We reordered this after our initial round. I would not go back unless I wanted quality sushi."

"We travel to Atlanta 3-4 times a year and always eat at Bones. I love the steak and side of mushrooms while my wife loves their crabmeat cocktails and other appetizers and grilled vegetables. Great onion soup. Salads are nice too. The food is wonderful and the staff makes you feel welcomed and they do whatever it takes to be sure you have an enjoyable time."

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.

"As a frequent diner here, the food is excellent and the wine and cocktail selection is extensive. It is always packed on weekends so reservations are suggested. Many small plates available. Staff is very nice and everyone goes out of their way to make you experience wonderful. Noise level on weekends is high and because large crowds, it takes a little longer to get you drinks and food. You cannot be in a rush."

"Libby's offers a nice menu with many options. Food is well prepared. Bar scene is very crowded and noisy during happy hours, but does not affect the restaurant diners. Great outdoor seating when weather is nice (no smoking outdoors). Nice wine selections by the glass. Great location in Hillview/Osprey Ave area. Nice place for casual lunch or dinner."

"Edison has an unusual menu with many choices. Presentations are wonderful and food is excellent. The staff is very nice and makes you feel welcomed. They will go out of their way to be sure everything is ok. We go often on weekends when reservations are a must. Noise level can be high, but can ask for a booth in an small area off the main room where not too noisy. Valet parking is helpful ($3.00)."

Celebrating 30 years of service, Murphy’s is one of Atlanta’s best-loved restaurants. Located in the trendy Virginia Highlands, it is the long-standing hub of neighborhood camaraderie and the choice destination for visitors seeking the epicenter of the district’s shopping and nightlife. Tom Murphy’s acclaimed restaurant brings in the crowds with the perfect combination of upscale comfort food, unpretentious service, a cozy, high-energy setting and excellent value. The interior combines rustic, exposed-brick and French café doors with modern design elements for a light, airy effect by day and a warm, sparkling atmosphere by night. A new renovation adds a sophisticated martini and wine bar and a sleek retail wine shop that showcases an extensive and user-friendly wine collection and hosts weekly wine tasting and seminars.

"This is a wonderful place with multiple cool rooms for dinning. There is an enclosed room called the patio (not really outdoors) and big windows open to the outside. We enjoyed the patio. Menu has many choices for everyone. Nice wines and drinks. Food was good; service a little fast paced, so we kept telling server we were not in a rush. A host kept walking around to tables checking to see if everything was satisfactory. Good complimentary valet parking ( you definitely need to valet because hard to find parking). Restaurant is located in chic area with many shops and places to walk. Will definitely return. Moderately priced."

"We enjoy the variety of food (always changing) and the quality is great. Not a traditonal menu but always something for everyone. Good wine selections by the glass, flask, or bottle. Weekends are crowded and noisy and need reservations. The staff is wonderful and always eager to please if something is not right. Valet parking on side street next to restaurant ($3). We go here almost weekly."

Celebrating over 16 years as one of Atlanta's favorite restaurants, South City Kitchen Midtown specializes in contemporary Southern cuisine with a sophisticated twist. Combining the energy of Atlanta with the warmth of a Southern home, the restaurant is nestled in an updated, historic bungalow on the city's famous Crescent Avenue. Dine on local specialties such as shrimp and grits, buttermilk fried chicken, she-crab soup, fried green tomatoes and banana pudding while enjoying the view of our exhibition kitchen or the Atlanta skyline on one of the best patios in the city. This truly is dining the way the new South intended. (Please note, the restaurant is not handicap accessible.)

"This highly rated restaurant serves real southern food: fried chicken mashed potatoes & gravy, kale, trout, catfish, etc. I wanted to try it but most of the food is really not healthy though most people like it. I did not care for it. However the worst problem is the noise and, if they seat you upstairs, it is too cold from a/c. I was so cold I asked server to make it warmer but it did not happen. I actually had to get up from my dinner and go downstairs and go outside to warm up. If you go there request downstairs seating or patio seating."
