We sat upstairs which I enjoy because it's still lively but a little removed. You can still have a great conversation and know there is a lot going on around you. Wonderful food and beverages. Considering being from the Midwest it's always great starting the meal our with something our of the norm like biscuits! Phenomenal dishes from red meat to chicken to fish to veggies that didn't take too long and just very enjoyable all around!

It's been a while since I've visited South City Kitchen. I decided to go there with my husband since he's never been and the food was just okay.I remembered it being better years ago. I probably wouldn't dine there again if I was choosing restaurants. The food was just average.

We are from Greenville South Carolina and my family from Oregon was in town for Thanksgiving so we found the kitchen and decided to try it. Everything we had was great from the Fried chicken to the Shrimp and Grits to the salmon salad. The wait staff was perfect the whole night showing my family from Oregon real Southern Hospitality

This is a wonderful restaurant with great ambience and creative meals. You won't have too hard a time talking with a date but it won't be dim lighting and quiet alcoves. It is a city feel with city flare. Great service and heavy pours on the drinks too!

Went here for Thanksgiving. There was a prix fixe menu with an amazing selection of food to choose from. My boyfriend and I picked out plates to share and oh my god everything was so good. The standout was the filet of beef, I have never had a more delicious filet - it literally melted in your mouth, although everything was seriously so amazing! The whole atmosphere and service was exceptional! Next time I'm in Atlanta I will definitely be coming back to this place.

We had dinner at South City Kitchen for my wife's birthday, and it was a very pleasant experience. The food was outstanding. We had two orders of the fried chicken, which was fabulous, the lamb, and the pork chop. Everyone was very pleased. And our waiter was very good, informative and helpful without being overbearing. I'd definitely recommend to others.

My salad was not good at all. I ordered the chicken salad and the chicken was like the pieces of the burnt part or crispy fried part of chicken. No chicken really. I don't like how they cut the chicken and put in your salad now. When the chicken was on the side it was much better.

The dining area was filled with guests with eclectic sense of styles who provided the room with moderate levels of conversation. As far as the meal itself, the side portions appeared to have been plated long before the main entree was ready. This resulted in both the potatoes and greens being ice cold and the chicken piping hot. I had to send my meal back. However, it took me an extremely long time to notify my server. He disappeared early and failed to come and check on us with a simple, "How's your dinner or Is there anything else that I can get you," after our plates were served. Otherwise, the dining experience was good.

We had a great experience on again! I have enjoyed both the experience and the service every time. This was my 5th visit and I brought along two of my friends who enjoyed themselves and are already making plans to return and try out other dishes on the menu that looked just as appetizing! We had a great time thanks again South City Kitchen Staff!!

First time visiting the city and wanted a relaxing place with good food. This restaurant was Perfect. Great atmosphere, excellent service and tasty food. The sweet potato, parsnip, greens side was so delicious!!!! I tried my friend's short rib and it was decadent and beautifully presented. I enjoyed the crispy fried chicken and bread basket filled with biscuits and corn bread! I was in charge of choosing my group's restaurants for the trip and South City Kitchen was all of our favorite. Highly recommend.

Inside dining is way too loud to enjoy a conversation. I know the restaurant has tried to install a few sound control elements however I have to say the efforts to date are unsatisfactory. I checked yes regarding "if I would recommend to a friend" mostly because the food is very good, but it they cannot get the sound level under control, it is not worth the effort to return.

The food absolutely spectacular, the livers will eventually become something I'll crave and have to return for! Chicken and Waffles to the Caesar salad I was impressed and excited for every bite! Service however was lacking however.

Although the noise level was loud enough to make conversation difficult, the meal was really fantastic. I was still thinking about the chicken livers a couple days later. And the kimchi was a delicious surprise. I'm definitely headed back. It was a great meal before the symphony.

Made this reservation from reviews of top ten Atlanta restaurants. Loved the downtown location, parking was easy, no wait time. Had grandchildren with us, we were seated in a corner which was perfect.
Dinner was delish, no problem with special requests. Gem
