South City Kitchen Midtown Ratings and Reviews

I visited South City Kitchen on a Monday evening and it was wonderful! The noise level was a touch loud, but that is nominal when you consider the outstanding food (I enjoyed the fried chicken) and the fantastic cocktails (Arguably Perfect was to die for). I will certainly return for a repeat visit!

South City Kitchen was one of the best restaurants in Atlanta according to my best friend (a foodie) who just passed away. Our dinner was meant to be a celebration of him, at one of his favorite places. We were all blown away by our meals and fully understand his affinity to this fine establishment. We will all be back!!

Food was goid...service fine...but the noise was over the top. The architect I was with commented that they have not spent appropriately for sound management. We sat across the table from one another and couldn't hear each other without screaming. Terrible. We ate in a hurry and then went someplace quitier for dessert and conversation.
The primary server did not display a ple ...
The primary server did not display a pleasant "southern" charm that we are use to seeing from most of the waist staff. We were celebrating a birthday and she brought one dessert without even asking if anyone would like to order dessert or if the dessert was even wanted. (It was awful by the way). . She appeared to be overall disengaged with wanting to provide a delightful customer experience at even a satisfactory level. I will probably not be returning to this location again.
It's unfortunate the server prohibited our full enjoyment of the occasion.

For the most part this restaurant lived up to its good reviews. The food was outstanding, particularly the fried chicken which is one of their specialties. Nice ambiance with white tablecloths, but found it a little noisy. The only part of the experience that wasn't excellent was the service--our server was nice, but not what I'd call on the ball. Took him a while to return to take our order and he didn't seem terribly experienced. Overall, though, a great meal and we'd definitely return.

Everything was amazing...except the noise. Went on a Tuesday evening and we practically had to yell to hear each other. Couldn't hear the services staff either. Outside of that, the food was excellent, and service was great.

We came here with friends from out of town. Got a table right by the bar. Noise was unbearable. I wanted to ask to change tables but my friends said not to cause a problem. The food was good, but the atmosphere was NOT worth it.

Seems like this has gone downhill since I first came here. Service was perfunctory and didn't feel connected. Food was okay but not special. I'm guessing it's becoming a tourist restaurant where turning tables is the most important.

We had Sunday brunch at South City Kitchen before heading downtown to the Falcons game. Our reservation was at 10am, right when they open, and when we arrived at 9:50am people were already waiting in the streets. Since we were some of the first ones there they gave us our choice of table and we chose to sit on the covered patio. It was delightful to watch the neighborhood wake up and watch the restaurant fill up. We split the fried green tomato appetizer and each had a wonderful main dish. Service was also very friendly! I would definitely recommend!

It was date night, and it started well and ended even better. From the complementary basket of cornbread and biscuits, the best fried chicken of my life and to end it with a warm slice of pecan pie. The meal was the highlight of our trip.

By far the best food I've had since I moved to the South. My waitress was super friendly and she made great recommendations. She didn't get mad and made me at ease that my guest was almost an hour late and she even shatted with me so I didn't feel weird sitting there waiting. The food was SO amazing. I will definitely make this a once a month spot (on my cheat weekends), but since they also have healthy options, I can go back there anytime and I know the food will be just as good.

Not impressed. The flavors in my meal were such that I couldn't eat more than a few bites - pretty bad. The waiter, while polite, was rather pushy about coming by the table a million times asking if we were ready to order yet and grabbing plates off the table. It was so loud in the outside patio I could barely hear the person across from me. I don't understand why people rave about this place. When I get to choose the restaurant we go to in the future, it won't be this one.

Excellent, knowledgeable server. Food was excellent. As it got later, it got noisier and harder to talk. Most of the tables are set close together, so not conducive to private conversation. Would recommend to anyone looking for good southern-style food.

Delicious Brunch items and creative southern variety. The noise level is excessive and really hampered the meal. We were just a party of four and really struggled to speak to each other. Enjoyed the food and it was a third visit to the restaurant, but the loudness took away from the meal.

I love South City Kitchen. This last time was a tad disappointing. We went for brunch. They under cooked the bacon. When requested for a re fry, they overcooked it. They started all over and got it right. They were very accommodating. My husband did not enjoy the sausage biscuit at all. My chicken and waffles were excellent though! I don't think we will be back for brunch but definitely dinner!

This was the last night that my friend from California would be here in Atlanta, and I wanted her to experience the great food at South City Kitchen. She thoroughly enjoyed her dinner. It was a great dining experience.
