We were there to try out the food and service for a Dress Rehearsal Dinner. They were awesome. Marshina and Cameron are awesome. Great suggestions for food and incredible service.

It took us forever to get our appetizers! Waiter and Mgr. apologized for the “back up in the kitchen.” We had to ask for bread because we were into our second cocktail and needed food, which they brought. We finally got our appetizers (which they did comp) and then our meals. Scallops and Red Fish were delicious, which 3 of us ordered, but the hash brown potatoes were cold and hard. They brought us more but not until we were almost done with scallops. Disappointed with the experience because we had to wait so long although food was very good when we eventually ate.

The staff seemed overwhelmed. Food was basically a small plated portion of average food. Very loud. Basically it’s a bar in a busy downtown.

Our server recommended certain items as her favorite on the menu and she was spot on correct! Very good service with a smile.

White Oak is one of the better options in uptown Atlanta. The food is pretty good, our server was knowledgeable and the food came out in a timely manner. There are not a lot of decent restaurants uptown but this is one of them.

Overall good. Crab cake and GA salad was amazing.
There was a hair in the sweet potato mash that was under the short ribs. I did not send back, but should have.
Bottle of Jordan Chardonnay was not available.

Most of the food and cocktails are amazing! We ordered a few sides that were very bad. I told the runner once we were done that the mushrooms were supposed to be roasted but they were soggy with no seasoning. She said she was aware of the issue and had told the chef a few times. This was a normal complaint. Our server was super helpful so not sure why he didn’t stop us from ordering. Also, if an item has numerous complaints then why isn’t the chef trying to fix?
Overall, the food is great! The crab cakes are outstanding and the scallops are incredible. I would highly recommend but just stay clear of the mushrooms

The food was outstanding and the service very attentive. The only thing that would have made it perfect was if the noise level could be abated. When the restaurant was totally full (the first half of our visit) it was pretty difficult to hear each other talk across the table. Otherwise, it was a very enjoyable evening. We will be back!

The hostesses was the best, she was so professional and polite. Also I loved when she continued to address me by name and remembered my allergy to shellfish and shared that info to the appropriate personnel. Our server was good and so was the food.

Always make reservations during market weeks. I have been here a couple of times. Food and drink are always on point. Slightly pricey for what it is, but hey, its downtown Atlanta and I really wouldn't expect anything different

Deviled eggs were awful, you could tell the boiled egg was not fresh and possibly out of a bag or frozen. We both had salads and the beet salad had no flavor, and the the chop salad tasted off. Service was ok, the entrees were brought before our appetizer was taken so that lead to us rearranging our plates to accommodate the salad plate. They did take the deviled egg appetizer off the bill after we were told the chef said “ the eggs were made fresh today” mmmm nope. I wouldn’t go back unfortunately, was looking forward to it since it had great reviews, employees were very nice.

Always a great time. I love that I go there and see vested servers who have been with them for quite some time. It speaks volumes about the culture. The teamwork among the staff makes the night flow well. The food is always quality. You pay for it and the presentation, but the taste and ambience are both worth it.

Very much enjoyed our visit. A little rushed for cocktail orders upon arrival but otherwise the service was excellent. They have several specialty cocktails to review in the menu. All the food items ordered were very good although one in our party felt some of the items were too salty but still tasty. Overall we had a great dinner and would come back in the future.

The hostess had an attitude from the minute we walked in. We had a reservation because it said must have reservation on their website and we waited longer to be seated than walk ins who came in after us. We had to remind the hostess that we were there several times and each time she lied and said they were clearing our table. When we were finally seated we were put at a table in the bar...that had been empty for 20 minutes. Our waiter while friendly was ill maintained and provided no insights to the menu or seemed to have any time for us. The shrimp beignets were good, but the shrimp entree was terrible. My husband thought the spare ribs were ok. Nothing about our experience was worth the $85 we spent except the bartender who was the only person during our entire time there who gave us any attention.

Very busy night due to Peach Bowl crowd. We were seated at our reservation time. Took much longer than expected to see a server but the GM, Richard, noticed and things changed immediately. Thanks to Richard, it was an absolutely great experience. Swordfish was excellent. Wine recommendation was spot on. Overall a great experience.

Service was unorganized. Apps were brought out staggered and waiter had no idea what was supposed to be on each them (cheese and charcuterie board). Charcuterie board had one meat only. Entrees were decent but not great. Wait staff was not very attentive. Would not return.
