Hard for a restaurant to hit on all cylinders- Fortify has done it- we had lunch at Pi- then dinner at Restaurant and Bar- was the culinary highlight of our trip!

I and my companions really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. The only problem I had was, one of the wait staff took my plate before I was finished eating. It wasn’t the end of the world and we got a good laugh over it! I would certainly recommend Fortify to anyone!

Food was excellent as always. The seating is a little tight not offering much privacy, but the delicious food keeps us coming back.

Always a great experience in eating. The individual service was prompt and nonintrusive yet a pleasure. If I could suggest an issue, we were seated along the wall directly across from the bar. As we were a party of two, my wife was seated with her back to the wall and I across from her. The guests to the right of my wife had their table separated from ours no further than two feet from ours. During our meal their server, not ours slide in between their and our table with his backside toward our faces and food. Rude and not in good tastes. We enjoyed all the other aspects of our one time of a year meal and look forward to visiting again.

The food is amazing. My only criticism is the close proximity of seating to those next to you, at least for parties of 2. There is no way to carry on a private conversation or help but overhear the adjacent parties. The upside is that you usually come away with new friends. After all, this is Georgia and you're always meeting new neighbors!

Once again, Fortify did not disappoint. We were seated at once at our desired table, our server was attentive and the food was delicious. Fried gouda fritters as an appetizer were a big hit, and all four of us were very happy with our entrees. Smiles all around!

I will know next time to request to be seated in the back room, which seems less noisey! The front room is just too loud. There's no sense in going to dinner with a small group of friends if you can't hear what everyone is saying! Regardless, the food AND SERVICE is outstanding every time!

We have been steady customers for over three years. Multiple reasons but it boils down to superb cuisine served by a smart, friendly and courteous staff. Jack and Jamie have engendered a marvelous camaraderie among front and back of house employees. We will be dining at Fortify more frequently than ever in 2019. An absolute winner!

Not dined there for 6 months, but many times before, very disappointing experience, both entrees cold, order was wrong, server never inquired about dinner when arrived, server finally asked if wanted 2nd glass of wine after dinner nearly finished, table was wobbly and needed repairs, many open tables, but seated in back corner of restuarant, facing black wall.
What happened to this restaurant?

The meal was delicious, as usual! They have changed the choice of vegetable sides, which is nice. I did notice that they don't have any options for a glass of wine under $10, which is a bummer.
