We made reservations (and still had to wait) for 8 people, we actually only had 7 people and a baby. As for the atmosphere: They sat us at the smallest round table they had--they had us squeezed right up against a wall (and the tables don't move), and they couldn't even fit all the chairs around the table. There was barely enough room for all of our foods and drinks--and we didn't even have an appetizer taking up room. In fact, when the entrees came (right after the salads were put out) we had to turn in our salads just to make room, and we were almost in the laps of the people at the tables to either side of us. As for the decor, we couldn't see any of it because the lighting was non-existent. I mean to say that it was literally so dark that I had to take out my pocket flashlight to read the menu, no kidding, and could barely see the faces of the people I was eating with. On a good note, the chairs were comfortable. Moving on to the service: Our waitress was nice and polite, she knew the menu well. But, the menu was very very small, and I mean to say they had a very little variety or choice in anything. We are always ones to get and share appetizers and deserts, and they didn't have anything any of us wanted. In fact, the only things any of us ordered for entrees were things she had to explain to us that were not listed on the menu at all, and, personally, none of the sides that came with it were really anything I wanted. They don't even have sweet iced tea. Now how can you have a restaurant in Atlanta and not bother to serve sweet iced tea? Because we ALL know that unsweet tea with sugar packets is NOT the same thing. At any rate the service was very confused and got most of our food wrong. My crab cakes had many bits of shell in them, and they completely forgot the avacado for my fiance's salad. In the end it was $300 for the 7 of us to eat, with no alcohol, appetizers, or deserts, and of course the already-added 18% gratuity. All-in-all, not worth the hype or $.
Pros: Fancy-Pants Ambience, High-Class Food
Cons: Way Overpriced, Too crowded, Very Little Selection
