“Good not great”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

We had dinner here before a show across the street at the Fox theater. The food was decent, but for such a grand old hotel, I think they could step it up a bit. The best looking things coming out of the kitchen were the hamburgers, which we all said we'd just order next time.
There were four of us and my mussels came out much later than the other three meals which was interesting since it is the easiest thing to cook. The manager came out to apologize and was not the most friendly guy. He very begrudgingly removed the charges from our bill, mind you we never asked him to, but it was as if he wasn't sincere in his apology for the lateness of my dinner. It wasn't a big deal, I just felt he was a bit rude. My husband had chicken with white bean and chorizo and it was delicious. Their bleu cheese grits were good. Breakfast the next day was good as well and we will come back here to stay, although dinner might be somewhere else.

“Great brunch buffet”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Was going to the Fox Theatre and ate with my family at the Livingston Restraunt. The buffet had a great selection and everything was very good. Service did seem a little slow to restock - in fact I don't think the shrimp ever was full, note did I get a chance to even taste one.

The price was not bad for what you got.

Only main complaint is the decor. The hotel is very classic - but the dining area is very contemporary. I think they should have kept the restaurant in the same style as this classic hotel.

“Why did we wait so long?”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

My wife and I have attended many functions at the Fabulous Fox Theatre but had never walked across Peachtree Street to dine. Once we did wee have both regretted the wait. The service was excellently and expedient. The food was scrumptious. The wine list is impressive and the cocktails are great. The menu is short but everything we had was above our expectations and I expect close to perfection. We will definitely go back soon and often.

“no food slow service”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Told server we would be attending a play across the street at the Fox but service was so slow we gave up after 1 hour AND 40 minutes. Two people still had no dinner and one dinner was served and then taken away immediately as server claimed it was not as ordered and then meal was taken to another table and served. The hotel manager still expected us to pay for the meals not served. Food served was poorly prepared. Regular chef must have been out of town and the manager brought in a temp or who knows what...Manager did ask the person who paid for the meals to call him the next day for a way to make it right, but manager did not return the phone call next day or even the next week. Doesn't need the reviews as restaurant is across the street from the Fox Theater and gets plenty of traffic.

Had breakfast here the next morning. Good food, a little pricey but no more than other upscale restaurants in four star hotels.
