I've been 3 times and no. 246 has been outstanding every time. The service is top notch. You can't beat the hand-made pastas. Highly recommend the baked ricotta for an appetizer.

This place was dope, we got three entrees for two of us and it was all amazing. Also the bread crust tastes like peanut butter?? Probably the seeds but we loved it.

We enjoyed our anniversary dinner at No. 246. The atmosphere is modern/urban, the noise level was moderate, the service was great, the menu and food were very good. The menu had seasonal and unique selections. Overall we had a great experience and will visit again.

No 246 exemplifies a great restaurant with excellent food and customer service. We had reservations at 6pm and sat down immediately. Ordered drinks and dinner and about 15 minutes later, the power went out in the whole Decatur area. We luckily got our food just before this happened so they brought it out and we ate in the candlelight. Matt, our server (ask for him), was fantastic, super attentive, and knowledgeable about the menu. The Managers were excellent as well as they tried to manage the situation, the customers and getting everybody their food. We had some of the best pasta ever as we had 3 half pasta dishes. It was a very memorable anniversary in so many ways! I can't recommend No 246 enough for a night out or a special occasion. Excellent meal and service!

Water dripped from the ceiling on to my wife’s arm. Her line of vision was also a storage closet that was left open and unorganized. Overall just not a great dining experience.

Brett the manager went above and beyond to make our night on the patio special. We were celebrating our mom moving!!!!! Food was great, and my husband and I even got to play a little ping pong. Our mother was able to bring her furry friend, and my sister visiting from San Francisco thoroughly enjoyed everything.

Pasta dishes are fantastic and seasonal! Service was fantastic, as usual! They can also give you 1/2 portions of pasta for 1/2 price, which isn't advertised on the menu.

Looking forward to going back!

We were really looking forward to having a celebratory birthday dinner at no. 246, but unfortunately we were disappointed. When we ordered a cocktail after being seated at our table, it took over 20 minutes to get our drinks. We had to ask our server to check on our drinks in order to expedite the order. Our food order was delayed because of our drinks, then when we ordered an appetizer we ere told it was sold out... It was 7:30pm on a Saturday night. We ordered the spaghetti and the pasta was underdone. It was a lack luster experience unfortunately, especially in an area with such amazing restaurants.

Disappointing return to no. 246.

Had an early reservation at 6:15 pm and the hostess decided to seat us in the bar when at least 10 tables open in the main dining area.

Bar area was packed and loud. Service was slow.

I would say that I will say something next time but not sure there will be a return visit.

My friend recommended this place and to be honest, we were pretty disappointed. To start, when we asked our waitress what she thought of a menu item, all she said was good. When I called her out on it, all she did was describe the dish which was not helpful since we all knew how to read. We wanted some more information, some character. This waitress was just bland and seemed like she didn't want to be there. We had a party of five and four of us ordered pasta dishes- black spaghetti, cacio e pepe, and rigatoni. They were all overly salted, almost inedible. I wished we had said something, but we had out of town guests and didn't want to make a scene. My husband had the hanger steak, which he said was good. 1/5 people is not enough for me to come back or recommend this place to anyone else.

The food is really good. It is really nice inside and the ambiance is great, however, the bar is SO LOUD and the restaurant isn't that big so it is a little deafening. Once the bar cleared out though, the quality of the meal and our time there improved. It was a good time and I would go back, I would just sit outside or as far away from the bar as possible, next time.

I was not impressed by the food at all. One of the dishes we ordered was the Hanger Stake, I was expecting a big piece of stake but instead I got sliced red meat with salty edges - big disappointment! The black spaghetti was chewy and didn’t care much for the taste of it. I felt like the server was rushing Or harrasing me to get more drinks most of the night.

Great meal, I had the steak and my wife had the fish. They were both cooked to perfection. We also enjoyed two well made mocktails (they have a great normal cocktail selection too) and tiramisu for dessert. Fantastic, as always!

Pasta dishes not very good. A caicao Pepe pasta noodles with butter and oil with a dash of cheese and a sprinkle of pepper. The chantrel dish overly hit with lemon to make it to astringent. The fish dish was very good.

It took us one hour to get drinks. We had to ask continuously for water. The bill was miscalculated and we had to correct the server. The ricotta dish was cold despite a warning that the plate was hot. We are frequent 246 go-ers and this night’s experience was awful compared to every other time. It will give us pause to return.

Great food, good service. For the price and quality at this level, minor details for improvement. Stuff like remembering your name, having more servers so they don't seem in a hurry. Also servers who specialize in specific items throughout the dinner could be added value.

From the minute we walked in the door, the night was great... our hostess was very welcoming and the waiter was friendly and provided great wine and bar selections. I had the chicken Marsala and my husband had the spaghetti and meatballs (menu says for 2, but very willing to accommodate for 1 serving) both were delicious and the bread was to die for! We will definitely go back!! Thank you!
