I was an out of town guest visiting Clayton friends and we wanted to try a new dining place. It was a delightful surprise! The food was divine and service was incredible! Our server, Austin, was extremely attentive, warm, and gracious. My friend, the "birthday girl", said it was one of the best meals she has ever had. I would highly recommend Fortify and plan on returning next visit.

Hard chairs (no cushion) , terrible bar stools, no privacy, very loud, seated one foot from the next table. Lamb tasted like pot roast. Way over cooked. Had requested quite corner with a very early reservation (meaning I made the resv. several days in advance). Didn't happen.

Third year in a row of celebrating Thanksgiving with a sumptuous meal at FORTIFY. Am thankful for Chef Jamie Allred and Jack Nolan's on-going commitment to excellence. They've set a high bar in the community's increasingly well known field-to-table culture.

The menu is innovative and always exceptional. Local products are used extensively. It is expensive and not the place to drop in for your weekly feed. For special occasions it is nice. In terms of dress code it is better than WalMart. The staff is very attentive. It is a Northern Georgia treasure worth a visit.

Wanted to have a foodie friend from Seattle join me for dinner and Fortify was the perfect choice. Carlton took care of us from creating our cocktails, describing and recommending an amazing meal to recommending a Cotes du Rhone to enjoy with our meal. It was all perfect.

Jamie is one of the most creative chefs in the nation, blending locally grown produce with spices, meat, poultry or fish in innovative combinations of flavors and textures. And he creates vegetarian plates with the same flair. Breads, pastries and ice cream are all made fresh in-house. Save room for the pistachio ice cream with chocolate tart! And Carlton is a magician with delicious cocktails like the Cilantro Cherry Smash (bing cherry, cilantro, pineapple, lime juice and vodka). One piece of advice -- ya gotta go!

The food was great and the service was outstanding. I thought the seating was a little close and I watched the hostess seat customers next to others when there were tables available between. Some folks love the social aspect but I prefer a little more space.
I went there to try the rainbow trout but switched to the special "Monk fish". It was prepared well and a filling portion. I would like to go back for that rainbow trout experience.
Overall the experience was great.

We saw Fortify Kitchen and Bar on Georgia Traveler on GPB. It looked so delicious that we drove 2.5 hours from Canton. We were not disappointed. Everything from cocktails to service was exceptional. We ordered the filet and crab cakes. Both entrees were the best we've ever had. Rare to say but the drive was definitely worth it. We will return...

The restaurant was very well run and a positive experience. Less so our experience with Open Table, which after filling out the form and declining to receive email offers, we pressed continue and got a screen that told us oops, the previous information was invalid and to start over. A couple of times with this and we shifted to another restaurant, again managed by Open Table, and experienced the same thing. So disquieted by this experience were we that we decided to reserve a table in a restaurant in Rome. In the meantime an email arrived confirming our reservation at Fortify so we decided to go ahead with that and are glad we did. While waiting to be seated at Fortify we got a call from the other restaurant and I had to cancel, briefly telling them why. We understand there is hacking and its also quite possible we simply misread the form instructions, but the experience was very frustrating regardless.

Great farm to table food with a lot of local produce incorporated into the menu. Portions are plentiful so plan ahead if you want to include their wonderful desserts. The craft cocktails before dinner are excellent so plan to enjoy one while deciding on your main course. Everyone one was welcoming and ensured our experience was excellent!
