We visited Corner Bakery couple of times fascinated by its outdoor seating by the mini garden as it was just a stone's throw away from our house while in Atlanta. Having passed by the bakery almost every day and getting recommendations from lot of people, we tried it for breakfast and coffee and it did not disappoint. The options for bakery items and drinks were great with nice service and great ambience both inside and outside. The pricing was a bit on the higher side for a bakery - but then its the all famous Corner Bakery.

Bone's Restaurant

Reviewed By YorkeW - Maui, Hawaii

Our family LOVES Bones! We think they have the best steaks, sides & desert! For my nieces 48th birthday we came from Birmingham & North Carolina to celebrate at Bones. Charlie was our server and he provided outstanding service. The wine list is very fancy, they have it on an iPad. We enjoyed our cocktails which included martinis, margaritas, scotch, beer & wine. They provided plenty of bread & butter. The bread is like a croissant. Most of the party ordered salads. Bones is very accommodating allowing you to split a salad. Some split the crab cake & salad. We had the wedge & the Bones salads. For sides we had the asparagus ( huge & delicious ), broccoli, baked potato & hash browns. For entrees we had lamb chops ( huge ) filets ( the BEST in the USA ) and snapper. And of course for desert we had the Mile High Pie! Can’t wait for the next family birthday!!!

I took my wife here for lunch on her birthday. It was absolutely perfect. First, they had decorated the table with birthday confetti & a birthday card. Then we were each treated to a complimentary glass of delicious champagne. Our server Denyse was probably the best server we have ever had. She was funny, helpful, & made my wife feel so special on her birthday. My wife ordered the lobster salad ($25). It was delicious. Denyse even brought extra salad greens. I had the warm lobster roll ($25). No dried out lobster meat in this roll, just juicy chunks of lobster meat. It came with a side, I got fries. They were both served hot & were delicious. As if that were not enough we were served a complimentary dessert plate with 2 different desserts. They were delicious. This meal was so perfect. The atmosphere, food, & service could not have been more perfect. We can't wait to come back.

Our first visit to this outpost of the CF was mostly good. My Shepherds Pie was excellent and it was amply sized such that it was dinner at home the next night. My companion's Margherita Pizza was just OK and the accompanying salad was large and fine. Service was good and the prices are fair.

Desta Ethiopian Kitchen

Authentic Ethiopian cuisine crafted from high quality, real ingredients. We have options for all types of eaters: meat lovers, vegetarians, vegans and more. Dine family style or individually, it's up to you!

Reviewed By FamSiam V

We’ve experienced the well established Ethiopian restaurant scene in DC, and Ethiopian food in Africa, so were really curious how Atlanta would muster up. Wow! Desta was fantastic - and heartily endorsed by several teenage picky eaters. To accommodate one vegan, we got the vegetarian platter, and a side dish of steak bits for the meat eaters. It was amazing, authentic, and everything was mouthwatering and delicious. The service was superb, providing helpful tips and friendly banter. The Ethiopian beer was a nice touch. And, Destra offers a drive-through window for takeout. Cool!

As Atlanta’s top-rated Brazilian Steakhouse, Chama Gaúcha is known for delicious prime steaks and exceptional service.

Our beef is aged a minimum of 45 days, butchered in-house and then seasoned and cooked over natural lump charcoal by our Gauchos. It’s passion you can taste! For special occasions and private events, our 4 private dining spaces can accommodate 12-200 guests and are fully equipped for your audio-visual needs.

Reviewed By UglyBuffalo - Raleigh, North Carolina

My crowd tends to favor meat consumption so I have been to a number of these establishments. There’s not a lot of difference among them though Chama Gaucha stands out in the some ways. The salad bar offers an excellent selection. Most of the items on spits are better seasoned and rare, medium, and well done cuts are more distinguishable than at competing steakhouses. The lamb was relatively bland.

Aria

Aria is the creative vision of chef and restaurateur Gerry Klaskala. With visually stunning, full-flavored dishes, unmatched hospitality, expertly-crafted cocktails and an award-winning wine list, Aria continues to top Atlanta’s “best-of” lists year after year.

Reviewed By Decaturman - Decatur, Georgia

This restaurant has a more clubby decor rather than the current industrial trend that gets annoying and loud. Service was good without being intrusive. The wine list is a bit confusing with small bottles and large bottles, etc. Listing millliters would be helpful. The beet salad, jumbo crab cake and slaw, and yellowtail were all excellent. The chickpea fritters with feta creme was good, but not that interesting. The chocolate espresso sandwich and valrhona chocolate cream pie were both excellent, but don't expect a big dessert. They were small, but very tasty. Overall, this was a great place to celebrate a birthday or special occasion.
