We were in Atlanta for a conference, and the restaurant was close to our hotel. The food was a great twist on authentic Mexican cuisine meets Southern-style traditional. For example, the shrimp and grits tacos were amazing. Fabulous service, great cocktails, and the ambiance made this one of my top 5 vacation meals. More

Super place, outstanding view of Atlanta from 30th floor of Hilton. Food was great - definitely pricey - but also definitely worth it for a special occasion! My daughter and I got the 4-course meal with a sharing plate. Will come back again if we are staying in Atlanta. BTW - the off-season rates at the Atlanta Hilton are pretty reasonable - and the restaurant is right there. More

This restaurant was a welcome surprise. We were able to get reservations when we wanted them and were welcomed immediately upon arrival. There were plenty of options, including vegetarian. The bread sticks were wonderful and the meal itself was delicious. The portion size was more than either of us could finish. Overall I recommend this restaurant to others. More

I traveled from Baltimore to celebrate my 40th birthday in Atlanta. Sweet Auburn Seafood was recommended to me and my guest for afternoon and it did not disappoint. Our server Omar was awesome. Food and drinks were amazing. First time having fried lobster and I've been thinking about it every since then. Lol. And since I was in party mode, the live DJ was a festive touch. This place will be on my to do list the next time I'm in town. More

Great food, some of the best we've ever had. Breanna was very accommodating. My wife is still raving about everything she ate. Will visit again in the future. It is expensive, maybe even a bit too expensive compared to other places. However, for a special occasion, it's hard to beat the experience. More

Perfect location on the porch. I had squash ravioli. Very good but the sauce was a little different from what I have had. My partner had beef tenders and gave them a 10. Other reviews noted service was slow. For us it was leisurely but attentive. Perfect. However this is not a fast food restaurant so we were happy. More

Menu online was out of date. See new menu (8/18) attached. They had the main restaurant area closed and only the bar was open. No hostess, but the bartender was able to have someone check me in for my reservation. I was 1 of 3 people there when I went in. I got the butternut squash ravioli with butter sage sauce. The sauce was a little heavy. Other than that, everything was great. Bartender made my specialty drink and it was perfect. More

This was the first time we had visited this place which was recommended by a friend of my daughter's. It was her 24th birthday so she picked the spot. The food was ok. The fried green tomatoes were good. I ordered the chicken and waffles and although the chicken was tasty, the waffles were just ok. The staff was friendly but I'm not sure if this was the manager or not but he seemed quite tense. The nose level was too loud for my taste so we could barely hear our conversation. I liked the complimentary parking. Over all, I would probably go again and try the shrimp and grits the next time but be prepared for the nose. I also liked that the temperature in the resturant was pleasant. More

The drinks were very tasty and you will received the Southern Hospitality you expect in the South. I loved the fried chicken, very juicy and well seasoned and the drinks were divine. But the waffle wasn't very warm and a bit too chewy for my liking. Our server, Dai'Ja, was phenomenal and made it a very pleasant dining experience. More
