Basque
Cooks & Soldiers brings the cuisine and cultural experience of Spain’s Basque region to the flourishing West Midtown area. The menu is divided into “pintxos tradicionales,” or tapas-like snacks served atop toasted bread; “pinxtos especiales,” or Basque-inspired small plates; “asador” including a variety of wood-grilled fish, meats and vegetables; and a selection of unique and modern desserts. Behind the bar, Cooks & Soldiers offers guests an extensive collection of Basque and Spanish wines, txakoli and ciders, in addition to craft beer and signature cocktails. The cocktail list places a heavy emphasis on gin, offering a seasonal selection of house-infused tonics blended into gin tonics and other popular libations.

I had very high expectations and just wasn’t that impressed. Did love the cocktails. That was probably my favorite thing. The food did not blow me away. The wait staff was also very nice!

Good food. I like the pork cheek tacos, Fried artichokes and ravioli are an absolute must! The cauliflower is terribly salty and the muscles were not particularly to my liking me there. The sangria has quite a kick, so I wonder all they put in it other than wine!

Really one of the best restaurant experiences in years. The service was outstanding, the food was delicious, and the ambience had energy but not overwhelming. I am vegetarian and was a bit worried that I’d feel limited in my options with such a robust meat and shellfish menu, especially if I was sharing tapas plates with my date who is not vegetarian, but that was definitely not the case. In fact, my date felt so satiated he didn’t feel the need to order anything additional for himself. With such an overall fantastic experience and the continuously updated menu, I will definitely be back soon!

Cooks and Soldiers is one of my favorite dining spots in Atlanta. Whether business dinner, date night or simply getting together with a group of friends, you will find the food to be great and the service exceptional. The staff does a great job of recognizing repeat diners and making you feel special. Favorite cocktail: Night in Navarre, a must if you enjoy tequila.

Very cool atmosphere. Not pretentious but up scale and comfortable. Sat in inclosed “outdoor” area and the noise level was good. In the main dining area it seamed a bit loud. Food was very good and paced perfectly. Very good bourbon selection and they serve with a nice big cube. Our server Laura was a stand out. Great personality and very helpful selecting dishes and cocktails. The Chef was good. The front of house staff great. A very good mix and harder to find these days. I would return without question.

Cooks and Soldiers is one of our favorite places to celebrate with friends and family. This is definitely not an everyday food place. The small plates are fun to share and the food is delicious. The servers enjoy what they do and know they are good at their jobs! It makes a celebration more fun when the wait staff are all in helping everyone have a great time. The wine selections are wonderful as is the experience of dining where the food and service is top notch.

The wait staff was impeccable. Someone came by the table every few minutes, but didn't hover, just gave us a glance to let us know they were there. They were fun, and engaging, not pretentious. The plates came out in a timely manner. The two of us, I believe had eight plates, and everything was cooked perfectly. I preferred the strawberry cheesecake over the lemon tart, but both were delicious.

Would definitely recommend Cooks & Soldiers. We came in for the special burger, which we did end up ordering, but when the server ran through the menu with us and told us about the specials. This was not mentioned. We ended up having to ask about it. Overall, the food was very tasty, but the burger ended up being a saltier than expected. Would probably order off the menu next time.

Their food is amazing, but their hospitality was outstanding. This place is more for adults, but I have been there once before and thought I could find stuff that our children would eat. No one rolled their eyes or made us feel unwelcome for bringing in kids. We found things on the menu that my husband, the kids, and I all loved. This place has great handcrafted cocktails and delicious small plates. Next time we will try some their wood grilled dishes.

The servise and drinks were fantastic! The food was subpar. We ordered the steak, fish and pork tenderloin for the table as well as an assortment of tapas. The tapas were decent, the bikini sandwich was the best of the tapas. The steak was very tough and lacking flavor. The fish was not fresh and was very fishy and off putting. The pork tenderloin was good but nothing special. Dissapointing!
