    Its been quite a few years since my wife and I have been here, even though its one of her favorites,but other things occupy a lot of our time. I took her here for a post- Thanksgiving brunch and we completely delighted. We brought friends who had never been and they loved it. Great job and a good memory. Thanks!

    Food was tasty. Our server Andy was courteous and quick. He was mindful that we had theater plans and made sure we were out in time. Our table was a little busy as we were sat right by the main door. It was hard to get the full vibe of the restaurant. But overall would return.

    I would not recommend going to South City Kitchen for their Thanksgiving meal. We had the Turkey and Dressing option on the prix fixe menu. The turkey was fine, but all the sides were disappointing. Parts of it were inedible, especially the cornbread dressing which was bitter and just awful. The greens were bitter and tasted only of garlic. The mashed potatoes were gluey, gelatinous, and there was barely a hint of potato taste. When we told our waiter all this, he got the manager who was apologetic and shocked to hear our opinion. He did give us $50 off our meal but it was still over $100 (no alcoholic beverages). Finally, there was no crisp in the Apple Crisp dessert, which was cold, mushy, and sour. When the manager brought the bill and we told him that we couldn't eat the dessert either, he was nonplussed.

    Andy was excellent!! Full house and he was able to accommodate our party of 7, including 2 small children, with incredible grace and efficiency. Knew to ask about feeding kids fast without us asking. Delicious food. Everyone ordered something different and all was great. Hostess was very welcoming and helped me to table (on cane with broken ankle). Perfect Thanksgiving Dinner.

    Carlos gave the best service and experience. He was so accommodating and caring towards our family. We have a special needs family member who he treated with such dignity and attention that put at her at ease. The appetizers were amazing. Chicken livers are bar none. As for the trout, the sauce overwhelmed the fish a bit, however the squash side dish hit perfectly. Thank you for giving us a memorable experience.

    The food was okay for me. I ordered Market Fish which was mahi mahi. It was not seasoned well but the relish that went over it was tasty. The broccoli and potatoes were okay. My date had the fried chicken and mashed potatoes and collard greens. He said his was good. The prickly pear margarita i had was good.

    I was looking for a restaurant offering a delicious southern-style brunch and this hit the mark. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. They have outside seating as well as inside seating, we sat indoors and the table was comfortable. Excellent people watching since there are lots of glass walls and outside seating as well. The fried green tomatoes were excellent - a very nice spot for brunch indeed. One thing we did not know - they don't serve booze in Atlanta until 11am on Sundays. Obviously not the restaurant's problem but it was a surprise. At 11am, we popped the corks. ;)

    The fried chicken was delicious, the potatoes were good and the spaghetti squash was OK, but $32 in a casual outdoor room was insane. And $18 for less than a full serving of wine was ridiculous. I won't go back.

    Food was generally very good. Service felt a bit rushed. Difficult to hear dining partners, so everybody leans forward to listen and speak. This is typical for many restaurants, but it sure makes the dining experience a challenge. Better use of sound absorbing panels would make a big difference. Maybe fewer tables?

    Our server Andy was amazing: so kind, attentive, and personable. The food was very enjoyable, flavorful, and well-seasoned! My only criticism would be a preference for the shrimp not being plated with the shell and tail still in tact. Other than that, this was a great experience. The salmon cakes were so tasty, and the fried chicken and mashed potatoes were also delectable!
