“What Food?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

We stayed at the Ellis Hotel and the menu for the Terrace looked fine, so why not? The restaurant is really just an extension of the bar and although nice was very poorly staffed the night we were there. It took them a while to find a bottle wine list so we ordered food while we were waiting. Apparently the sequencing threw them off since they completely forgot to order our dinner. After 40 minutes we asked what the hold up was, their response "what dinner?" We left.

They comp'd the wine, but this place did not live up - in any way - to our expectations.

“Nice meal - wonderful service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

We opted to have dinner here when every restaurant was booked solid due to a convention and major football game in town (usually we try to eat dinner outside our hotel). Their patio was packed but we were happy to wait for a table so they gave us some water and menus to read while we waited at one of the high top tables inside. Within a few minutes we were seated in a great spot on the patio.

The service was tad slow because the restaurant was packed but the wait staff was very accommodating and made us feel welcome and well treated. It was a beautiful evening so we had no problem with the extra time it took to get our food.

The food was very tasty - we opted for appetizers and salads for dinner - we especially loved the fried green tomatoes. The shaved kale salad was very good as well.

“Another Mixed Review From Me”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

First, the really great. The wild salmon entree was excellent. Ordered cooked thru but not overcooked, dry or burnt it came out perfectly and the side dishes were flavorful.

The soup was too salty. It was some kind of chicken and noodle dish.

The dessert was a peach crisp. It was too bland both in topping and peaches.

Ate here last year with better results. I give it a very good rather than an average or poor due to the full entree that was excellent. It is sometimes hard to balance ratings when something is wonderful and something else is poor to average. Just stay away from the soup and peach crisp!

Two other items. The Ellis moved the restaurant to the first floor right beside the bar. There should be some physical divider between the two areas related to visuals and noise. Secondly, Sirius music played. Too loud and not a pleasant station for relaxed or romantic dining.

“Love - great food and great people watching from the patio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2013

I love this place - really, I really do. Local, organic, and great tasting. Yum! Breakfast - tasty, dinner - tasty.

So the one down fall - there are no free refills or at least not on OJ or lemonade so don't assume when they bring you a new glass it is included in the price of the first one - it is a little tricky.

AND THE VIEW - you have to sit on the patio. It is a great view and great people watching on peachtree
