South City Kitchen Midtown Ratings and Reviews
We met here for lunch on a Saturday because I had read very good reviews. The noise level was so high we couldn't hear each other talk. A couple of friends ordered fried chicken and were happy with their meal. Another person ordered a salad, not much can go wrong with a salad so he was pleased. A friend who loves crab cakes made this choice her meal. It was barely okay, with not much flavor and it came with cubed potatoes that tasted pretty bad. I ordered breakfast. The grits were the best I've ever had but the scrambled eggs had no taste and the bacon was mostly fat. Desserts were very good. However, we ordered coffee and never got it but were charged for it. They had to issue a new bill after I pointed out about the coffee. I treated my friends and paid $160.00 for a mediocre experience.
Fantastic service from a true professional - thank you, Pablo!!!
Everything was fantastic; must haves were Fried Green Tomatoes, Beets, & fingerlings with salsa verde!
Restaurant was quite loud but the food and service made up for that.
Will definitely go back if I'm ever in Atlanta again!
This place was really good. The food was great! I will definitely return. However, the hostess with the one side shaved head was not pleasant and welcoming. I asked her if she was the hostess but I did not get a response. The manager, Vanessa was more than accommodating and really made up for our first impression of this place.
Alisha is great. This was my second time and she took time to check to make sure my son and I was doing well each time she passed. Everything we ordered was sent out just as ordered. The hostess at the door was also awesome she made sure we had a table. Thanks SCK see you next time hope the next time is better than the first and second. High expectations 👍😊
This place is amazing. I didn't too much care for the pulled pork but my boyfriend had the fried chicken over mashed potatoes and collard greens and his was delicious. Our waitress had Great customer service this is a great place for a date. I would recommend my friends to come here and I would definitely come back again.
I had guests from South Ga in town who I wanted to take somewhere nice for lunch, but not too risky. South City was a great choice. They offer a wide selection, but the fried chicken is among the best in Atlanta. There are frequent celebrity sightings there because of its close proximity to the Four Seasons hotel.
Was in ATL for conference that wound up around 8:30pm. Was able to get reservation for 9. Restaurant was about half full when we arrived. We were promptly greeted/seated. Waitress was incredibly knowledgeable around the menu and cocktails, made great recommendations. Highly recommend the fried green tomatoes and the fried chicken. Venison saltimbocca was also unique and very well prepared. Our meals were perfectly prepared and our waitress was attentive throughout. Very much recommend a trip here for special occasions or for just great food.
South City never disappoints. They are consistently delicious. I especially like their fried green tomatoes, she-crab soup, fried chicken and shrimp and grits. I brought some work colleagues since I've bragged about the fried chicken and they agreed it was the best they'd had.
Really enjoyed our lunch at South City. This was a celebratory lunch for a work anniversary. Our server, Alisha was prompt and observant. She overheard this was an anniversary lunch and even brought out a little celebratory dessert! Overall, everyone was happy with the appetizers and entrees. I especially enjoyed the smoked brisket and she-crab soup.
The appetizers were absolutely delicious. We had fried green tomatoes, livers, and pimento chees. Fantastic! Everyone that had the breakfast brunch (5 of us) was disappointed. Eggs were cold and the grits were cold and not great. The sausage and biscuits not great but one of our group had a delicious salad and another had the salmon and said it was delicious. Sad because I was entertaining my family for a celebration and was disappointed. I go here all the time for work functions and entertaining folks and have always been very impressed and happy to share southern cooking. Not happy this time!
Stopped in with a friend for early dinner ahead of the opera. Found a lot on the menu I would have liked to try. My friend - who is a bit (ok, a lot) pickier - likes chicken but the only chicken on the menu was fried. Luckily, she settled on the vegetable plate which she really enjoyed. Been coming here since the 90's and like that they keep evolving. Always enjoy the atmosphere and service - sophisticated and hip but never stuffy or snooty.
Excellent farm-to-table style dishes with a southern twist. Welcoming atmosphere and top noych service for our large group. One of the sous chefs even cane to greet us! Nice personal touch. Stellar variety of dishes included fish, meats, gluten free, vegetarian options--all were equally enjoyed. Will return upon next opportunity!
I have been to South City Kitchen before but this time I brought my 85 year old out for a "girls lunch". Anthony was our server and he was amazing...he provided great recommendations and was so friendly. We had the fried green tomatoes as an app which were delicious...and I am from Atlanta...these are real FGT! We both ordered the Turkey Hot Brown open faced sandwich and that was so good. Definitely comfort food for the day. It was lunch time in Midtown so it was really loud as there were a lot of business people have work lunches but it did not bother us. I love this restaurant and plan to go again! Service was fast and the manager greeted us and was lovely. It was yummy, Southern food :-)
