Indulge in a bottle from the meticulously selected wine list, or join us at the bar for a hand-crafted libation from our nationally recognized cocktail menu. Restaurant Eugene has been a winner of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence since 2005. Chef Hopkins is a two time James Beard Nominee and was chosen as one of Food & Wine Magazine's 2009 Best New Chefs.

We've had wonderful meals during the past year at most of the restaurants regarded as Atlanta's best. Right now, Restaurant Eugene is at the top of the list. The food is creative and perfectly prepared, from the amuse bouche to breads, appetizers to desserts. Excellent wine list and one of the best selections of spirits in the city, with a... More

First of all, this is as expensive a restaurant as any in Atlanta. Your evening starts with a server who is very informative but it ends there, because he has the attitude that the food is the best around. He never checked to see if our meal is good . Our table had the tasting menu and we added a... More

My son is changing jobs and moving to Tampa. So, we had to have one more dinner at at Restaurant Eugene which is located in mid-town Atlanta. The chef is a James Beard award winner. Our expectations were high. We were not disappointed. We arrived early and started at the bar. My Manhattan was perfect. We both ordered the chef... More

This Atlanta restaurant ranks in my top 2 for the area. The atmosphere is wonderful, the staff very knowledgable and attentive, and the alcohol selection very very good. I had the 5 course tasting menu and enjoyed it thoroughly. I highly recommend you visit this restaurant.

We have tried many tastings, all over the world. The food was spot on and in our opinion it was better than colichio in NYC. Service was very good and dinner was well presented and smooth. For a 5 course tasting it is not that expensive and well worth it. We did not do the wine pairings, instead worked with... More

Celebrated my wife's birthday tonight. This was one the best restaurants we have tried. The service was impeccable as there is not an assigned server for any table. Consequently, every table belongs to every server so you are never without attention. The food preparation was innovative and very well presented. The food itself was delicious. The real treat was the... More

Unlike a previous reviewer, my experience at Restaurant Eugene was fantastic. I, too, have eaten at Bouley in New York and agree it was amazing. But every course I was served at Restaurant Eugene was world class. (I followed this by eating at Bacchanalia the next night, and my dinner partner and I both agreed that in this particular match...

We may simply be spoiled, European gourmets, having visited some of the best restaurants in the world, but somehow we had expected more from Eugene. The interior is great and the service is definitely impeccable, so no complaints here: effective, friendly, to the point. We felt the food - we had the tasting menu with an additional course - was...

As a Top Contributor to Trip Advisor I take these reviews very seriously. I have lived in Atlanta for 49 years and last night my wife and I celebrated our 29th Anniversary.

The food is truly outstanding, and the service gracious, caring, and impeccable. This is essentially a French-style tasting-menu kind of place, where you put yourself in the hands of the chef, and just relax to enjoy the ride, which takes about 2 hours. It is evident that these people know what they are doing, with everything that comes with it:... More
