Best Manhattan ever!!! Thank you to John the bartender. Followed by the Best Fried Chicken and ending with cinnamon sugar donuts! YUM! Highly recommend.
We went to celebrate my 40th birthday. Everyone there made it so special for me!! Food was amazing. We tried a little of everything—bbq leeks, flat iron steak, pork belly, shrimp and grits, and short ribs. Literally everything was so amazing; not one plate had a bite left on it. Soooo good!!
I’ve tried this place on numerous occasions and this time was by far the worst.
We were seated promptly by the host, then we had one server show up 8 minutes after we were seated: Joe.
He took our order for a coke and tea and water but he never brought us water.
After more time, another server (Allison) came and she said she’d take care of us... but the original server brought out drinks after that.
It was confusing and awkward. We didn’t know who to order our food with and the dining experience lagged.
After we got our Coke and tea, again no water, we ordered our food. I had 3 small plates, and my date had the fried chicken.
They brought my small plates and then we had to wait another five minutes for my dates fried chicken, so my food started to get cold... and they never gave us water.
I also requested some bread or rolls and they never brought that over. My leeks had bacon bits that were too dry and chalky. After dropping off the chicken, no one talked to us for over 30 minutes. I had to call out the server by name to get her attention. It wasn’t busy in the restaurant, and I felt embarrassed to have brought my date here. I wanted to impress them and enjoy our evening.
Great service and delicious food!
The menu is TOO SMALL. Not sure if they are using the cover of COVID as an excuse but if you can’t execute more items than that....just stay closed.
The service was phenomenal. The food menu was extremely limited, portions small, and flavor very meh. Atmosphere and cocktails were great, But I won’t rush back for the food.
It was a beautiful location but was just an ok experience.
I chose this restaurant to bring my husband in for Father's Day around 3pm. We ended up spending $50 on a chicken sandwich (dark meat) which we don't even eat plus fries. Basically the choices were limited on the menu. Most restaurants sell white chicken especially fast foods joints. So to dine at a restaurant in Buckhead one would think surely they serve white chicken.
We spent too much money to eat a chicken sandwich & fries.
The food was very average; chicken sandwiches are not all white meat but rather a pressed patty of "parts." I've had better chicken sandwiches at Chik-Fil-A, and the fries were typical store-bought variety. There were three of us and all three dishes came out at different times and one of the orders was wrong. Service was slow and confused - too many people servicing one table and they weren't communicating. The music and patio is really nice, but this is third time we've been disappointed with the food so I don't think we'll be back.
This is a post Covid review. We have had brunch here many times pre-Covid. They unveiled the new post Covid menu, it’s very limited, the chef is very inflexible. I had the braised short rib hash, I got a teaspoon of short ribs and a bowl cool of potatoes. Everything is smaller, not as fabulous, just really really average. This used to be a superb brunch spot, you can tell Covid is hitting them hard so I will try again when things get better. But this new menu is quite disappointing. I found myself apologizing to my husband numerous times for Father’s Day.
The customer service and ambiance was great! The good selection was terrible, they didn’t have the items I saw on the online menu, due to summer they said...so I opted for a Caesar salad, had no idea they served the lettuce hot, it wasn’t good at all, then I ordered au gratin potatoes, they gave me a small square lol... I won’t be back.
The fried Chicken was great. Nice atmosphere and great service. Terrific drinks. The staff was very courteous and sweet.
Really great quality food and drinks. They were well prepared with covid and had sanitizer, staff in masks, tables six feet apart. The cocktails menu had a great variety and Joseph our waiter made suggestions based on our tastes. The food was amazing! I had the fried chicken. Just the right amount of honey and the leeks were the perfect vegetable to go with it. Portions were small or maybe I was just really hungry. Definitely a staple favorite in Atlanta. Thank you!
Awesome meal!! Allison took amazing care of us .... highly recommend!!!!
I’ve always eaten here so lol idk what to say it’s outstanding.
The drinks were amazing but the food was subpar.
We had a minor theft during our stay at the restaurant. The servers were overwhelmed. Other diners came up to take our spare seats and were playing their own music loudly from their phones. Overall awful experience. We will not be going back
Brunch get together with friends! Food and service was amazing!!! Love The Southern Gentleman
The Southern Gentleman has become my new favorite date night spot! The cocktails are 10/10, we love sitting at the bar!
Great outdoor dining. First time for dinner. Portions are small. Shrimp and grits only contained 3 shrimp. Staff was friendly and attentive. I’d recommend for atmosphere for drinks only or when you are not overly hungry for dinner.
Service was the worst. Food cold, no social distancing . Packed .
Excellent service, delicious appetizers and entrees. I would definitely recommend this for an excellent dining experience.
22nd wedding anniversary!
A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I dined here for a much needed date night. We had a fantastic dining experience. The entire staff was incredibly welcoming and warm. Also, our server, Kavin, was outstanding, and the food was equally amazing.
Specifically booked event for a birthday celebration. Server reassured me that everything was on track for the birthday at end of meal but we were rushed and the slice if Birthday cake was never brought out. I'm very dissatisfied.
My husband and I selected Southern Gentleman for a celebratory dinner in honor of our 18th anniversary! The service and food was impeccable! The staff went beyond their call of duty to make this occasion special by giving us preferential seating! We definitely plan on returning in the near future!!!
Food was fantastic, if it was available. We were disappointed in the size of serving for the cost of the main plates. The biscuit that came with the gravy and egg couldn’t have been more than a 2 x 2 in size. Additionally, they were out of a lot of different types of alcohol and cocktails that we had requested. The food that was available was good. The music was a bit overwhelmingly loud. My husband got the chicken with pancake which was by far the best dish!
Was there on Sunday for brunch. Great food and excellent service. Will definitely visit again in the near future.
Celebrating my birthday
I had a wonderful experience, the staff is friendly, the food was amazing and the ambiance was perfect.
We had a beautiful table and a darling waitress. Food and drinks were delicious.
Enjoyed my going away dinner with friends at Southern Gentleman. From beginning to end the staff was attentive and ensured the experience was great.
The food was amazing as well. We enjoyed the catfish bites, bacon, shrimp and grits, fried chicken, and the burger. We were all fully satisfied with the food. And the drinks omg is all I can say. Thank you for a great dining experience.
Great food and service. Temperature was quite chilly for a very rainy night.
Our anniversary was amazing! Thank you! We'll DEFINITELY be returning for brunch NEXT time. Dinner was great.
Great and cute brunch spot in Atlanta
recently relocated back to Atlanta. A dear friend researched brunch restaurants, and selected the Southern Gentleman. I'm so glad she did because they have a returning customer. ;-)
The service and atmosphere was mature and great!!
Service was terrible and the food was not good. Shrimp was not pickled and it was gummy, we were served 4 small celery stalks with our hummus. The fried green tomatoes were hard and over fried.
We enjoyed the mussels and mac & cheese.
Our drinks took a very long time.
Great location and service! Unfortunately our skillet cinnamon roll was cold through the middle and our pancake was not very warm either. The manager was very accommodating and got us replacement dishes. The pimento cheese omelette was amazing!
Great food service. The bar was a bit busy which slowed service.
We had the fried chicken. It was moist and tasty. The mac and cheese was bland.
Overall it was a pleasant experience.
This place and the food even was very beautiful. A true southern feel. Until u taste the food. There’s nothing really southern about it except the titles. It was tasteless. The service over all was amazing but could definitely use a new chef.
