Thai | Midtown, Atlanta

Celebrated my wife’s birthday a few days ago. Service was great. Food was delicious. The calamari appetizer was amazing. My wife ordered vegetables in a curry sauce topped with a crispy lobster tail, while I had the bbq lamb chops. Both meals were delicious. Servers were attentive and our waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful in our selection. Highly recommend. Looking forward to coming again. More

Sushi | Midtown, Atlanta

Food was amazing. One of the tastiest sushis I ate so far. The restaurant needs a bit outdated and also dress code needs to be more of a business casual. I've seen people wearing shorts. Also it is a nice gesture when you are celebrating a birthday not to be charged for your small dessert. As a conclusion food is excellent, the rest need improvement. More

We’ve been eating at Nino’s for 20+ years, and never been disappointed. Same this time. The food was hot, delicious, plentiful and and promptly served. (The one thing that is subpar is the table bread.) Impressive desserts, too. Our waitress, Jillana (sp?), was terrific - friendly, knowledgeable, attentive without being annoying, and just plain charming. More

Some textiles or other sound dampening measures could make a world of difference. Parking is tough but the valet service works well! More

The food is the best I have had in Atlanta -- and maybe even India! The owner is so nice and personable. He formerly worked for the Taj Group in India. The outdoor dining area was delightful. The calamari was so good as an appetizer we almost ordered it again as an entree. Not to be missed! The curries were complex and delicious. The Lamb Shank melted in my mouth. I cant wait to go back again and repeat a few and then try every dish on the menu. More

We started with the host changing us to an outside table (we booked inside not knowing what the weather would be) as it was a perfect 70 degrees. We had cocktails and the cheese platter. Both were wonderful, then we had dinner. OMG , compliments to the chef. Three different dishes, all three so delicious and beautifully presented. Our waiter was great. No rushing us and very attentive. Every time we visit we have to eat at Longleaf. It never disappoints. Kudos to all. More

R&R was excellent. The service is friendly, efficient and accommodated our need to get to the symphony. The bar riffs on classic cocktails are good and limit sweetness when needed. The tiniest thing to note was that the fish was over seasoned. But I'm finding that is true at many places. So I'll simply ask for light or no salt in the future. Overall my wife and I will be back and look forward to it. More

Ate here with friends before a show in Midtown. The service was very good and friendly and the food was some of the best Mexican Food I have ever tasted! I believe the presentation of the food made it even more tasty! The only thing that could be improved was their cocktails. They came in a small plastic cup and seemed very watered down. But, all in all, we would go back, as it was a fun and relaxed atmosphere and GREAT food! More
