South City Kitchen Midtown Ratings and Reviews
The food was absolutely incredible, innovative but still familiar. The cocktails were next level. I had the purple rain and the peach next door. I actually had three of the peach next door. I had the pork chop with BBQ boiled peanuts, and I have no idea why it worked, but it worked. Spectacularly. Don't skip dessert either. The ambrosia ice cream that came with my pineapple upside down cake was indescribable. Just kidding, it was like the most delicious piña colada that I would have never thought to order.
There was something very wrong with my fish dish. The meal 1. Looked unappealing - was literally 3 hunks of grey fish , on grey and black beans, with a dark red paste on top. 2. Tasted very smoky- like cigarette/ cigar smoke , not how a smoked fish dish tastes. 3. Beans were literally beans on a plate. No flavor. 4. Was not hot. My food was lukewarm and that is stating it kindly.
About 2 hrs after leaving I was very ill and feel it was directly related to the fish.
Our other dish was Shrimp and Grits. It was ok. Covered in a heavy gravy, also very smoky tasting in an unappealing way. More grits than anything.
We had pimento cheese as an appetizer and it was good.
Good Sunday dinner though unfortunately it was a bit loud. We were told it was a short term summer arrangement with the adjacent bar. Regardless, the meal was good - we had the Fried Green Tomatoes; the Pulled Pork; and the Fried Chicken. We'll definitely be back at some point.
I've been going to this restaurant for 20 years. I took a break for a few years and recently came back. My wife and I are big foodies and wanted to go somewhere different for brunch than our normal, so we went foe our 12:45 reservation, was seated 15 mins later, our waiter acted as if he didn't know the menu and timid like it was his first day. The NOIS LEVEL is off the chain too loud even 20 years later!!! It was a problem then and still is. Get it together. Oh, and my food came out wrong and it was the simplest thing on the menu. Scrambled eggs came fried, no bacon, came with bacon. Frustrating!!!!
Visited for Sunday brunch with a friend at Midtown location. Friend could not eat cheese and we were both disappointed that almost every appetizer on menu seemed to have been prepped before hand and they were unable to accommodate /serve fried green tomatoes without cheese or crab toast without cheese. We ended up NOT getting an appetizer because of this. Honestly expected more of a WOW factor with waffles - pecans added on top and also whipped topping. Wouldn't make a special trip to visit again.
We included a note with our OpenTable reservation that it was our 15th anniversary. A glass of champagne and dessert were provided complimentary. We did ask to change tables once to a quieter location which was easily accommodated. Food and service both excellent.
Sat at the bar here and was treated to a great meal. Two bartendresses kept me in food and drink all evening. The smoked trout crostini and salad were fab enough but the star of the show was my Springer Farms Fried Chicken plate with greens and mashed.
I actually had to share one of trout crostini with the couple on my left as it was a lot of food for one.
Grabbed the signature, " all right, all right, all right" cocktail and it was........all right.
Energetic fun vibe and on my return trip list when in Midtown.
Both the service and food was incredible!! We were in town from the Northeast for a conference and wanted to try some Southern food, and I picked this restaurant based on the Open Table reviews. All the food is local and nothing comes out of a can or jar! The biscuits and corn bread were to die for as was the fried green tomatoes and friend chicken were incredible! If I lived in Atlanta I would be a regular!
Our experience was simply outstanding. Both, the food and service was great - I had to send my waffle back as it was not very hot. Our waitress was very apologetic. The manager quickly brought over a fresh, hot waffle but what was an example of exemplary service is when we were getting ready to go the waitress said she wanted to buy our dessert as a treat for me having a cold waffle initially. Now, that's customer service! A few other restaurants and establishments should take heed. Thanks SCK! We will be back.
Our server was fantastic. He took time to walk us through the menu and made excellent recommendations. When I described the profile of wine we were seeking, he pointed us in a great direction. After we were about halfway through the wine, he came back to get our take on it so that he could further refine his recommendations in the future- it was clear he was passionate about his work!
