The location was great, except the traffic noise was a bit much. We think our waiter was overworked (at least we hope so, because there were long waits in between ordering and delivering). The was not very flavorful. I had the steak - no flavor. Someone else had the shrimp and grits - flavor. Someone else has the fried chicken - no flavor.

My recent visit to South City Kitchen was to celebrate with out of town friends who are like family. This restaurant remains one of my go to spots in Atlanta. The food is consistently great, as is the service.

Extremely poor valet service and handicap access and seating. Restroom near restaurant closed, requiring long walk to accessible restroom.

Valet did not attempt to help patron struggling with getting walker out of car...with no other patrons around. Long walk for handicapped from valet into restaurant...no handicap ramp outside of main door of restaurant, just into high-rise building.

My cousins and I get together to celebrate a birthday of one of the ladies and to congratulate another one on obtaining her master’s and first time home purchase. Your restaurant was a great follow up to our massage session for us to celebrate and love on each other. I’m huge fan and I recommend your restaurant to family and friends.

It was nice to get great service... not the norm these days. Portions seem to have gotten a bit smaller and a little pricey for a non-boozy brunch. Valet parking is not free and the valets could use some training. (I gave a generous tip and didn't even get a "thank you" from the valet, who I had to wait quite a while for.) Still, there aren't many places where you can make a reservation for outdoor seating at the last minute, so totally worth it during these COVID times.

There was a party of six of us who made a reservation and when we arrived, we were all squeezed at one little round table. Was disappointed in that. Wasn’t even busy either so just made no sense

Terrific service but uneven food. Their standards, like fried chicken, were great. But the black bean and rice cake was inedible. And literally all of the vegetables were underdone, on the plate just to be pretty. She crab soup was good and so was the bread basket. So stick with the basics.

Sat at bar as was solo and didn't need to take a two-top table on patio. Always enjoy lunch, dinner or brunch at SCK Buckhead. A gem. My only suggestion is that hostess stand personnel learn to be more customer engaging and not have a flat affect, as if they are doing customers a favor by greeting and caring for them. Remember this is a "hospitality" function!!

Servers were awesome. The atmosphere was great. Food had no taste. We ordered chicken collard greens and patotos. Drinks were okay not the best. If you're looking for a place just to sit and chat have wine with friends atmosphere is great. Don't for the food. You'll be disappointed

Food was not hot, delayed serving. I’ve been to other locations and it was better. Later reservation may have not been the best decision.
