The obvious comparison is to the Twist near door. Limited menu is appetizers, salads and small plates. Maybe 15 wines. 1 Cab that I remember.Tried the pork terrine. Vacuum of taste, even with chutney sauces. Literally sucked the expected flavor from my imagination. Tried the pork samosas on waiter's recommendation. Same tasteless shredded boiled pork, but deep fried in filo dough in greasy limp turnovers. Wish he would have advised me I was ordering the same meat twice in a row. Tried the beet salad since its hard to screw up this dish. Got a dome of diced beets with fruits and goat cheese. Get a real beet salad at Barcelona's in Virginia Highlands.The atmosphere was nice; the service on par for a buckhead joint. Loud music outside from cheap speakers like nails on a chalkboard - at 4:00PM. Need to get better sound system, or make the music background to conversation.Yebo needs to step up to the plate and deliver, or die next to Twist like the last place there.
Our group had such an amazing dining experience at Taki! The service was impeccable from the moment we walked in the restaurant. We had a few drinks at the bar while we waited for the rest of our party to arrive. The Hubs had the Jim Jones and I had the Mango Mai Tai...both were very potent (just the way we like it)! Once we sat down, we shared the rock shrimp (tempura fried), rock scallops, and rock beef. The last two were cooked on hot rocks at our table, and were flavorful and fun to prepare. We ordered a variety of entrees, from hibachi to sushi. I had the Rainbow and Bubba Gump rolls. I enjoyed both thoroughly. Everyone loved their meals as well. We ate and drank more than we'd planned, but it made for a very fun evening.Steve--the general manager--and our server Michelle were wonderful during our entire visit. We'll all definitely be back to visit soon.
Ramen is all the rage now, and Ton Ton is one of the newest restaurants to serve this dish in Atlanta. I decided to pop in while I was at Ponce City Market, and I'm glad I did. I ordered the Hakata Tonkotsu Classic Ramen, which was a treat. I loved the pretty bowl and almost didn't want to eat it (but I was starving, so of course I dug in soon after it was served). The broth was flavorful, and the ingredients were fresh.My only complaint is that my seat at the ramen bar was shaky. I thought I was going to fall a few times. Next time, I'd sit in the dining area...it seemed more quiet and nicer in that area anyway. Other than this, I can't wait to get back.Note: As of the date of this review, they did not have their liquor license. But check out the fun soda and tea options in the meantime!
Amazing food, service, wines, and other spirits. The best lobster (I had gluten free pasta) I have ever had in Atlanta. The large plump scallops are piled in a bed of diced summer squash, corn, and other fresh seasonal vegetables. The intricately meat and cheese tray was perfect for a lighter snack with the various tasty worldly wines. The charred octopus in a pesto smear accompanied by mixed veges and seasonings tantalized my taste buds and had me wanting more. In addition to the amazing wines I sampled one of the smoothest tequilas I have had in years. Matt our bartender/server provided us with A+ service. Although they are relocating because of my amazing experience I will definitely make sure I take the trip to their new location in the Decatur area.
Romantic (check), good food (check), easy find, reasonable wait, plenty parking, not too crowded & noisy ehhh not quite mastered. I enjoyed the service, the food, and the ambience! My lover and I dined here for Valentine's Day and it instantly became one of our favorite restaurants. We adore the eclectic style and personable staff. The menu is absolutely amazing but heavy do come prepared to chow. We've tasted half the menu and we've yet to be disappointed. The coconut shrimp, jumbo crab cake, lobster wontons, lobster fried rice, it's all very delicious! I can't recommend just one dish. The place is pricey but it's a great experience since it's an "absolute fusion" spot. You get all your cuisine favorites in one place. You will be impressed!
This restaurant is true to its name. Fresh seasonal ingredients with rustic, open air space, large restaurant keep this Buckhead eatery busy throughout the day. The staff is friendly, hospitable, and optimistic. The servers know how to keep on top of handling their tables without seeming pushy or rude when you are crunched for time. The salads are largely portioned to ensure you are paying a good price for what you are getting. Decently sized proteins accompany colorful plates of various salads and mixes. The menu notates vegetarian, glutem free, and spicy cuisines. Eating here shows that eating out can still be healthy and good for you, even if you do decide to have a craft cocktail, beer, or wine at their large wooden bar.
