I had made a reservation anticipating they would be busy and they were. I thought with the prices being $ 46.00 per person I would be getting something special - this was not the case. The server Heather was great - right on it - pleasant personality. I went for the Thanksgiving meal. They served you an appetizer, you selected... More

ahi tuna salad at lunch - excellent. The dressing on the salad matches the tuna with precision, the greens are fresh, and the flavor of the tuna excellent! But, we had to find our waitress to order😏, I was prepared to go find her again to ask for some more water, and the hostess showed up with water, I found... More

Was looking for a good, quick lunch. Stopped at Food 101. We ordered the waffle of the day special with bacon and chocolate. Also the chicken and waffles. Food was very good, service not so much. If I had read the previous Trip Advisor reviews I would have known that the service would not be quick. And it wasn't. It... More

Honestly the food was five star (point deducted for service). Granted it was a busy Friday night but service did not only take a long time (literally everything was slow), it was very unfriendly. However the star was the food. I had the halibut which was excellent - seasoned and perfectly cooked. I could eat this everyday. For dessert the... More

this restaurant used to be one of the best along the northern corridor of Roswell Road, but has unfortunately gone way downhill. I ate there for lunch with a friend today and the place seemed relatively empty, the service disinterested at best and the food part tasteless and part just plain yucky. My friend had crabcakes that looked more like... More

Our lunch was great. The crab cakes were mostly meat with very little filling. My husband enjoyed the shrimp and grits. The service was a little slow.

After all the great reviews we were excited to try this place. Was extremely disappointed. The good. We had reservations for our party of 6. We did not all arrive on time due to heavy rainstorm. However hostess seated us promptly as we trickled in. The rest. We ordered cheese board (small portion. 3 slices of bread) Pimento cheese. (pretty... More

I've been here at least a few hundred times over the past 15 years or so. The service is still good. The food is still basic and good. The parking is still spotty.

We went with a group of people before a concert at Chastain. I don't really like eating dinner that early but I do not think that contributed to the lackluster experience. The food was just okay and the service, well, I think the waitress thought she was doing us a favor to show up. Its rare, but sometimes when a... More
