Overpriced, slow, tiny portions, marginal food. Poor service. Great physical space. Very crowded on Saturday night. Would not go again.

Poor service and average food at a high cost. If that is what you are looking for- this is your spot. With so many great restaurants in Atlanta don't waste your time here.
Can't remember ever being so rushed by a staff(pulled our app plate from the table well before we were finished) and seemed intent on getting us out in an hour. Nothing like dropping $200 for two- leaving hungry and unhappy.
I will never go back.

We went during restaurant week and had everything on their tasting menu. I always have a hard time getting my partner to enjoy contemporary American food but he absolutely loved it. The gnocchi and hanger steak were delicious and they had a very extensive selection of spirits. Will definitely try again when in the area.

Very accommodating, interesting menu, but the delivery (and some of the menu items) were hit and miss. Charcuterie was nice, but overpriced given the quantity, and the hatchet steak was half fat. Again, interesting concept... poor execution.

We had tried the place before for appetizers and drinks at the bar, and had a good experience that we decided to come back to celebrate an occasion and dine in the main dining area. We were looking forward to trying the featured 'hatchet' 32oz ribeye steak for two. Now, we fully understood that their menu changes daily. Fortunately, on the date we returned, the steak for two was on the menu. We ordered drinks, a charcuterie selection, and went all out with the steak and the study in vegetables. The waiter was very helpful and even suggested the steak and vegetables, as well as the charcuterie selection. We were all happy and looking forward to our order. While we were enjoying our drinks and the charcuterie, our waiter came back and apologized profusely as they were "out" of their "signature" steak for two, at 7pm at that! Apparently they did not have it that evening and there was some "miscommunication" since they did not inform the servers. I can understand changing menus daily, I can understand not being able to change the menu in time and having the item still on the menu, I can also understand unexpectedly running out of a popular item later in the evening. What is not acceptable is that after reading it on the menu, after the server describing and even recommending it, ordering it, and anticipating it, only then is the customer informed that they were "out"! Management should have let the servers know, so that the customers could be informed BEFORE they start making the selection, particularly in the case of a big ticket entree as opposed to a side dish! The worst part is that the manager never even bothered to talk to us to apologize, offer alternatives or even offer an explanation. We left after the appetizers. Management at this place has a lot to learn about customer service.
