Exquisite is the word I would use for the food at we enjoyed recently at Restaurant Eugene. The service was attentive and efficient without being rushed. This is fine dining, of Michelin star quality. I would rate Restaurant Eugene in the same league as our favorite two-star in France, where we spend several months a year – but the price... More

My husband and I dined at Eugene’s on a relatively sleepy Wednesday evening while visiting Atlanta and the atmosphere in the restaurant somewhat reflected this. It was a quiet, candlelight, romantic restaurant with approximately ½ the tables in use. Most patrons were decked out in suits and dresses; but in packing lightly and not originally planning for an elegant evening,... More

I heard that Chef Hopkins had received a James Beard Award, so I made it a point to check out the restaurant on my last trip to Atlanta. Two thumbs way up! Everything from the time I arrived to the last bite was superb. Excellent and attentive service by a very knowledgeable staff. The food is in a class all... More

My wife and I dined at this restaurant over the weekend for our anniversary. This morning, I decided that I would read some of the "terrible" reviews, as I have no idea how anyone would ever rate this restaurant poorly. I could not disagree more with the negative reviews. The wait staff was incredibly attentive, and we received more complimentary... More

We ordered the five-course tasting menu and a limited wine pairing. The fish courses were both wonderful and every course had delightful and well-balanced flavors. The staff was amazing and accommodating, tending to our every need and working hard to find wines that we would like, but would also pair with multiple courses. In addition, when we arrived, my dinner... More

A wonderful restaurant in Bulkhead ATL. They really push their tasting menu, so much so that that's the menu and they scoff when they show you the "piecemeal" menu on the other side. The meals are scrumptious and artfully prepared and they are willing to accommodate special requests such as vegetarian, GF, etc. Very pricey, this is really a foodie... More

I had the vegetarian tasting menu (6 coourses, I think), and it was really amazing. The waiter was really nice and friendly too. Clearly the best in "ATL!"

Restaurant Eugene offered a Boxer Day Southern dinner and knowing Linton Hopkins skill with southern food we thought it would be a nice treat. Hadn't been there in a couple of years as the price points have gone up substantially and this special seemed to be a way to enjoy what had been some memorable meals. Frankly other than the... More

Let me first emphasize this is a fabulous restaurant with a great staff. They do an excellent job in the kitchen and serving but there was a glitch at my birthday party and I want to share that part of the experience in case you are going to Eugene's with a larger group. My reservation was for 9pm with 8... More
