Eggs came out cold - Must have been sitting waiting for the rest of the table's plates to be ready. Asked for a reheat and didn't even get an apology from the server. By the time I was reserved (with the toppings of the benedict missing) the rest of my table was basically finished with the meal. I rarely send food back but cold eggs are just yuck. The rest of my table enjoyed their meal. Me not so much.

This was our first time and the server was pleasant and knowledgeable of the menu as we asked what were some of her favorites. Also, Mrs. Maggie (Nancy G’s sister)was such a joy as she told us how the restaurant was started. The food was amazing and seasoned to perfection. I had the fried chicken& grits which also came with a fried egg and biscuits (delicious). We will definitely becoming back.

My husband and I moved to Ga. 4 months ago and have been looking for good southern food. Well we found it, my husband loves to eat and loves to be full when he leaves a restaurant, well he accomplished both. The food was so flavorful, the service was outstanding and the entire staff was wonderful. But the main thing I noticed during our entire visit was every plate that came out of the kitchen was piping hot. We love our food hot and fresh. We will be visiting this restaurant often I can assure you. Kimarie and Scott Lawrence.

This is one of our favorite go-to brunch places. Whether you want eggs and breakfast items or lunch items, this restaurant has it all. Service is always professional and quick. Avocado toast with a side of grits is my choice. Hubby ate French toast deluxe with eggs and bacon. There wasn't a drop left on his plate.

Southern Bistro, even the death of Owner Nancy over the summer continues to be
great neighborhood restaurant for the Buckhead/Chastain crowd.

Didn’t have item that I ordered available for another 3 hours so I ended up simply ordering a burger. Could have stayed close to home for that.

Wonderful Sunday brunch! Varied selection of brunch foods along with a nice selection of lunch foods. Their take on avocado toast is enough for $ and the over easy egg on top is perfection. Fried green tomatoes with goat cheese one of the best I have had. The Southern Benedict is a delicious take on a good old faithful as is their cured salmon benedict. As always, the service from start to finish is impeccable.

The best neigborhood place for lunch, brunch and dinner. We go 4-5 times a month.

Southern Bistro remains my go-to spot for brunch/lunch AND I take all my out-of-town guests there when they are in town. Thanks for a reliable, quality experience. My only critique is very minor; the sausage in the Sausage Eggs Benedict while tasty is a LARGE proportion of meat for that dish; a slimmer slice of that delicious sausage would be an attribute vs a rather overwhelming, too-filling distraction.

Loved sitting on deck to have brunch. Mimosa and avocado toast to start, leaving the fried egg atoo the avocado toast to my husband. The broche french toast with egg and applewood bacon, delish. The sausage in the poached egg, muffin stack was a bit salty. And at the end of our meal noting the half portion uneaten the host asked my spouse who noted the sausage was too salty as preferred but on whole good, it was immediately stricken from the bill. Love the food and service.

So impressed by this restaurant! I can't remember ever having a restaurant meal served piping hot until now. They had 3 food runners bring our 4 meals all at the same time, straight from the oven/pan. The prices are very reasonable for the quality and amount of food. Service was very good, server was friendly. It was kind of cold so next time I'll bring a jacket. Not a super fancy white tablecloth type place, but you could dress up or dress down and feel comfortable. I'm going to tell my friends about Southern Bistro. Highly recommend.
