Food good. Service was slow. A bit loud.
The food was decent, although not memorable (and priced higher than we felt it was worth). The service was OK (one member had finished their drink and was interested in another, but no one to be seen for 20+ minutes).
We enjoyed our dining experience at South City Kitchen. Eclectic menu focused on southern tradition but no where close to the "meat and two" that many consider as representative of southern cuisine. Creative variations, not-so-typical offerings made this a special experience. For example, there are not many menus, southern or otherwise, that include venison as an entree. (It was prepared perfectly.) It was too noisy by my standards, as seems to be the case in many modern restaurants. I wasn't into that "vibe," but I sure did enjoy the food. Service was adequate, but a tall waiter who speaks relatively softly in a noisy room can be a challenge for many.
Corn muffins served at brunch were delicious! Service was slow, did not seem like the restaurant had enough people working.
Gabrielle was great!!!!
The food is superb and out waitperson was awesome. The restaurant location at Avalon is much better as it is less claustrophobic and less noisy. But the same great experience at both.
It was very disappointing that they did not have any fish entrees available on the menu for dinner (7pm reservation). There were shellfish options but my guest was allergic and did not eat meat. The waiter did not inform when we received the menus - not good.
I hesitated to go anywhere except the midtown location. I was very satisfied with the service, food, and atmosphere of the buckhead location. It has a modern feel and tables are a little more intimate. Loved it and had a great waiter!
Everything about this meal was fabulous. I only wish that I lived here so I could try the entire menu
Sat at the bar--yummy drinks, amazing entrees. Kind of pricey but worth it.
First after telling us we are ready to be seated we had stand and wait for about 15 mins before the host came back to sit us while she was out busting tables. That was not GOOD . The food was very bad. no flavor or too much. The vegetables were cold, collard greens were not seasoned and then the mash potatoes had too much butter in them. Everything tasted funny and when we asked the waiter why the food taste that way his response was. "it depends on who is in the kitchen, sometimes its seasoned and sometimes its not." well there should always be a consistency in food flavor regardless of who is in the kitchen. That was my first time and my last time eating there and would not recommend that place to anyone I know. Hence the reason why I never eat out but this was an invitation. For that location and style of restaurant i hope they do better . Service and staff was ok though
All the starters and entrees were good but the pork chop was exceptional. Cocktails were nice too. Server very knowledgable and friendly
Chopped chicken salad was bland. Service was slow and food service was slow. Loud. Staff was not nice
LOVE this restaurant!! I normally love the crab cake meal, but they changed it...it was ok but no where near as before.
Food was great
Service was great
My company was great
Great service and food. Will return!
Our server, Emmanuel, was attentive yet gave us some space. Champagne by the glass was flat so we bought an over-priced bottle and Emanuel kept the glass full. Would have been nice to have an actual champagne glass verses a wine glass. Food was OK. Midtown location seems to have a better prepared menu.
Great upscale southern food and great service as always. South City is our first place to dine when we come to Atlanta especially the one in Buckhead.
I was there for my Birthday 🎂 and the food was just fantastic 👍! It is one of my Son’s favorite restaurants as well, and he was with me with for my Birthday dinner.
Had dined at the midtown location but this was my first time at the Buckhead location. Food was excellent. Service was wonderful. Noise level was a bit annoying but we enjoyed our visit just the same.
The food was excellent and the waiter was on point !!
Had a great meal at South City Kitchen, had the mussels which were excellent then the redfish which was also lovely and husband had the lamb. Devoured a chocolate angel cake after. Our server was great, made excellent recommendations.
The food was delicious! The biscuits melt in your mouth and the fried chicken is tender and juicy.
The food was wonderful and well prepared. Logan, our server, was outstanding! A great place.
Loved the whole experience!!!
The food was delicious!!
Fried green tomatoes a must try!
Food was fantastic. Our server made a few mistakes, but was very apologetic and fixed them all quickly. Overall the restaurant was great.
Our experience did not match that of either of the other two locations. There seemed to be a shortage of wait staff. Our entree arrived before the appetizer plates had been cleared. I was left holding plates and utensils so that the waitress could put down our meal. The evening was not what I expected and I doubt very much if I will return.
Good atmosphere to enjoy a cocktail, dinner and bottle of wine with friends/family. Great for a group - the food is good. Well seasoned, courses spaced appropriately. Server was excellent - but could use a little training on the wine menu.
Food was slightly salty and cold. The bench seating outside had a horrible odor. The roof kept dripping on us. I personally feel like no one should be seated on the patio until the roof has been upgraded.
As a vegetarian, there wasn't a lot of options on the lunch menu. Prefer to go foe dinner.
The food was amazing as always but the tables were way too close together where we were basically sitting on top of the people next to us. There was no way to have a conversation without the people next to us hearing. It was extremely uncomfortable and it took away any intimacy we anticipated having on our Valentine’s Day dinner. The waiter couldn’t even fit between our table and the next table to serve us. It was awkward because she had to stand behind the table to do anything. For a high end restaurant like this one, I suggest putting more focus on table placement and maintaining the restaurant’s culture and intimacy.
Great service, food and atmosphere.
Great Valentine’s Date experience.
I took my husband here for Valentine’s Day dinner since it was my year to plan the day’s activities. The ambiance was great, there was music playing, lighting was good, seats were comfy...overall the setting and service was great!The food was good. I’m a picky eater but I did eat most of my plate...
In one word - OVERRATED! Choice of wine, not available. Drink watered down. Cheap biscuits and cornbread mini-muffins. We went during the forced Valentine's Day menu, $60 per person which did not include drinks and only ONE DESSERT to be split between 2 people :-| The appetizers and entrees were overcooked, luke warm, dull, colorless, flavorless and uninspiring. Not at all what you would expect for 2 ppl, with a final tab of $165! I honestly felt scammed. I would never eat there again, and definitely would not recommend it to anyone I like. P.S. They DO NOT have Mac & Cheese (Soul Food??? Not!)
Always great times
Hostesses professional and welcoming. Staff professional and informative. Chicken livers were pure gold.
Great dinner on 2/13 at Buckhead's South City Kitchen. We requested a table upstairs (where it is a bit quieter) and would highly recommend it (much nicer and intimate!). Food and service was outstanding and the drinks were super tasty too. Would return without question
