Re: “Endive Publik House

Great concept! Fancy, fine dining without the fancy, fine dining price. A lovely retreat from the fast paced hustle of the city, providing a relaxingly stimulating atmosphere. Every dish is deliciously sweet, offering a new rustic fusion feel that leaves you completely satisfied, without feeling overstuffed. The staff at Endive Publik House are all so talented, kind, and accomodating. It's the perfect place to bring the office crowd, or friends and family. I simply love this place! It is such a delightful dining experience that I would like to share with everyone I know.

Re: “There

The specials are always incrediable as are the items on the regular menu. The bison burger with garlic rosemary fries has to be one of the top burgers in Atlanta. The braised short rib appetizer is one you don't want to miss. The Manhattans & Bloody Mary's are the BOA too. Sunday brunch with live jazz can't be beat.

Re: “Footprints Cafe

Me and my friends went to Footprints thinking that we were going to have fun but it ended up being just the opposite. The music and the food sucked! The service that we received from the waitress was horrible!! It is not worth paying 15 bucks to go there. Please don't waste your time or money.

Re: “Shoya Izakaya

I've come to this place three times so far. The third time will certainly be my last. I should've know something was wrong when upon leaving the second time the server came running out. He asked me why i didn't leave a tip and i told him it was simply because i didn't have enough money.

The third time i came and ate and when i left i was confronted by the same server asking why i didn't leave a tip. I explain that i forgot and as i was about to dig up a tip for him he got an unnecessary attitude. He started to speak of how he remembered me from before and that if the service was good i should've left a tip. He spoke of how they only make $3 working there. Then he went even further to say that he didn't think it APPROPRIATE of me to not leave a tip.

As i stated before i planned on giving him a tip. But once he said all that the tip went out the window, I explained to him that i didn't think it APPROPRIATE of him to come towards me in that manner. I'm a minor and he is a full adult towering several feet taller than me and with the way he presented himself was uncalled for. As i said i am a minor with no job so i don't make alot of money and i went here for a special treat for my birthday. If i didn't have money i just didn't and there's nothing i can do.

I also told him that in other restaurants its recommended you tip but it is not mandatory so if i don't have money or if i just don't want to i don't have to. Upon this he stormed of and threw the server wallet on the register. I thought it was very immature behavior and asked to speak to the owner. The elderly woman behind the register claimed he was out of town but asked me to tell her my problem.

I explained it to her and she basically told me the same thing and even said she understood why he got that way. I told her there was no reason and upon explaining my reason I told her that if that was the attitude i was to receive i wouldn't come back. I told her for the way he behaved i deserved an apology for an apology she said"No , i don't think so." and went on to say if i don't have money for a tip i shouldn't come here.

I left and spoke with my mother who spoke to them. Upon seeing her their whole attitude changed.They directing her to the owner (liars!) who apologized for his employees behavior. Then upon seeing my mother the employee suddenly appeared and was falsely apologetic. My mother explained that as a minor he had no right speaking to me the way he did. If he had a problem he should be speaking to my date and not a small, younger, female. My mother explain i would not be coming back.
This place seemed like a wonderful place but now i see it is full of rude workers with bad manners. I am not coming back and would advise you to do the same.
Over all this was a terrible experience and i would not recommend coming if you don't want to get picked on.

Re: “Bread Garden

I walked into this bakery the other day. I heard hateful things being said and bullying. Catharine Krasnow was yelling at one of her employees and making fun of him being disabled and his
Disability's. I was so disgusted I walked out. This woman sounds horrible. I talked to other locals that have been in there and walked out. I talked to one customer in particular that told the employee that he should call the department of labor and the police because from this local customer I talked to she has hit him before. With how I heard her talk when I was in the store and hearing how Psychotic she sounded. I just wish I would have said something and stuck up for this employee. I regret not doing so. I hope he takes the advice of the other customer that spoke to him.

Re: “Leon's Full Service

Leon's is consistently one of my favorite places to go. The cocktails are superb and the food is always delicious. Admittedly, I usually stick with whatever special they are offering, so I can't speak to the burger, but I've always loved whatever I get.

Re: “Rumi's Kitchen

Rumi's Kitchen has a great atmosphere, wonderful food and acceptable service. They would be receiving four stars except for one serious issue. They have absolutely no respect for disabled individuals. They allow the valet company to park cars in the handicap spots. The first time this happened, we spoke to the manager and he assured us it would be handled but not before he declared it was not the restaurants responsibility but that of the valet company. The manager never did come back around to close the conversation with us that evening. When the valet company was addressed, we were told it was the restaurants responsibility. Tonight, in an attempt to see if they had corrected the problem after bringing it to their attention, the exact scenario played out all over again.

It is important to know that the proper procedure for someone requiring a handicap spot and not being able to access one because an able-bodied person is in the spot is to call the police. When the police arrive, the car parked in the handicap spot gets ticketed -- even if they did not park it there themselves. Nothing happens to the valet company or the restaurant until the TICKETED customer takes issue.

Until we have 100% assurance this issue has been resolved and will continue to be resolved we will no longer patronize this establishment.

Re: “Tantra

I was invited to Tantra by my friends for the saturday Enigma party. We didn't stay long but I wanted to try the place out with my bff. I loved the tacos and decided to order the steak with side of cauliflower the steak was charred on the outside just the way I like it and the cauliflower had just the amount of herbs and spices. Also the bar program was really nice I ordered the champagne cocktail (I forget the name) but it was good. Will definitely go back again maybe when my parents come to town.

Re: “Suite Food Lounge

Great Food in A Very modern restaurant the manager who was dressed very nicely came to our table and suggested some great wines. I rarely travel downtown to dine but this was definitely one of the best experiences. I wish they could give me the recipe for that salmon dip.

Re: “Green Sprout

Re: “Big Sky Buckhead

I was a huge fan of Pura Vida, so I was excited to see what Hector was creating this time & arrived at Big Sky right at 11:30 on opening day. The vibe is more sports bar-y than I expected, and the fare and big-screen teles cater to that experience. The atmosphere is gorgeously open; the bar being a centered island gives plenty of room for people to crowd around, order, and socialize.
The food was as expected - innovative and beautifully-prepared. I was happy to have pork belly coconut buns after being without them since the closing of Superpan & Pura Vida. I also had the Cubano, and the clove was a delicious surprising flavor. All of the juices sounded delicious, and the bright, fresh flavors go well with the fare.
The menu is a nice balance of inventive and casual; many casual bar/hangouts have "normal" food and they just serve environment. Big Sky Buckhead has a great environment AND conversation-worthy food.
The avocado creme donut and endive sounded great, and I'll try them next time I stop by, which will be soon!

Re: “Osteria Mattone

The owners and staff of Osteria Mattone turned our small company celebration into a truly unforgettable experience. The warm, personal greeting by owner Ryan Pernice, expert wine recommendations by sommelier Dan Pernice, tableside visit by Chef Ted Lahey and wonderful and attentive service by our waiter, Chris, were as exceptional as the menu and wine list. Not to be missed are the Fritto Misto (the white anchovy is devine), the Agnolotti di Oxo, and the luscious Budino Caramellato for dessert. Lovely renovated home on Canton Street in Roswell. Go. You will be glad you did.
