South City Kitchen Midtown Ratings and Reviews
We ordered a lot -- fried green tomatoes, chicken livers, fried chicken, beef sandwich, pineapple upside down cake. And that was for lunch. Wish we lived in town. Wish we could have ordered more. Everything was so delicious. And Lauren, our server, was lovely. What a great start to our weekend! Next time we are in town, we'll definitely be back!
Was a good experience, but not awesome. Likely was time of day, we didn't arrive for our late lunch till around 3:00. Was still pretty busy! Meal was good. Wife had Salmon, I had their signature fried chicken. Mine was good, hers was ok. I think if you went at night they would probably step it up a notch. Came highly recommended by some foodie friends, so we'll likely go back and is why I would recommend to friends but didn't give it 5 stars.
Lunch on my wife's birthday. Seated immediately. Server made great suggestions. Fried green tomatoes were delicious. Crab cake was very good with lots of lump crab meat with little filler. The potato hash and over easy egg were great compliments to the dish. The pimento burger was very tasty and very filling. Great staff and drinks were delicious (Peach Next Door). Will go again.
Went for Saturday brunch at 2pm. It was the third time there and the first time that the hostess was rushed and rude. Brunch ordered was ordinary and not hot when served. Every other time for dinner the experience was great. This time it wasn't. I might go back for dinner but doubt I'll try brunch again. Oh and hostess failed to notify OpenTable that we were there.
Hostesses= great, very helpful. Food= solid, great flavor (southern but not soul food). Ambiance= super cute. Waitress= THUMBS DOWN (not sure if she had a bad day or she was just a condescending jerk but if I went back and she was my waitress, then I would opt for another restaurant).
Overall, our waitress was such a wet blanket that I didn't enjoy my experience. I enjoyed my food better once I reheated it in the privacy of my own home.
This was my first time to South City Kitchen after having it recommended to me for years, and it did not disappoint. Our waiter was wonderful! We started with Peach cocktail with vodka and prosecco that was delicious, and things just got better from there. We shared the pimento cheese - I recommend that for 4 people rather than just 2 :) - the fig salad, the BBQ pork app and the signature shrimp and grits that had a wonderful smokiness to it. There were several other items on the menu that I would recommend, and I look forward to going back. We were in one of the "rooms" off the main dining area where the bar is, and our noise level was perfect. The main dining area is quite a bit louder, so you may want to note that in your reservation.
South City Kitchen has always been a strong go-to restaurant to help me welcome newcomers to Atlanta. I hosted a new client for lunch and he thoroughly enjoyed his meal and the restaurant vibe.
The effort it takes to infuse creativity into southern food does not go unnoticed and leaves us a bit happier every time we leave. Kudos for a long-standing tradition of serving up food with southern charm.
We had an amazing anniversary dinner here. I noted it was our anniversary on our open table reservation and they surprised us with two gratis glasses of prosecco and again at the end of the meal with a small dessert treat. Service was excellent and food and wine always good.
Great good in a modern clean atmosphere. A little loud but not so much that you at hear conversation. Chicken and waffles and fried green tomatoes were delicious! Wait staff was very friendly but didn't check on us perhaps quite as often as was needed but was still overall great service
I think South City Kitchen is definitely the standard for Southern dining in Atlanta. The food was perfect! The biscuits and cornbread served as the bread starter were delicious and a perfect "southern" intro. We ordered the Pickled Shrimp and Fried Green Tomatoes as apps and the Fried Chicken and Shrimp and Grits and I wouldn't hesitate to order any of these again (though I'm definitely want to try the Salmon Tartare and Pork Chop next time too!)
The most notable part of our experience was the incredible service! We dined on the patio, so I expected service to be a bit slower, but our server was extremely attentive and helpful in explaining the menu and his favorite dishes. The highlight for me was when he served the dishes that we were "splitting" on separate plates for us so we did not have to go through the awkward plate swapping dance!
We will definitely be back soon :)
