While I wasn't extremely hungry the evening I stayed at the Ellis Hotel, a snack was in order so I decided on the fried green tomato appetizer and, oh, how delicious! The best fried green tomatoes I’ve ever tasted…please don’t tell my grandma! The service was excellent and the atmosphere delightful. . .very quaint.

“Longest wait ever...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We had a large party there this past week during Market week. We understand that the restaurant had moved from the second floor to the first, but the kitchen is still on the second floor. We were seated and all was moving along well until it came time for the main course to be served. It took 2 hours for the main courses to be served. We alerted the proper people and they only comp'ed us 2 meals. It was very disappointing. I know that options downtown are limited but I would seriously reconsider going back...

“Didn't make it to dinner”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

My wife and I have eaten here many times and really enjoyed the excellent service and fine food for the price. The views of Peachtree were great if you ate on the balcony and the inside bar and restaurant area was very cozy and inviting. Note my use of the past tense.

We were going to go to this restaurant for a nice Christmas dinner. Opentable showed they were open and available for reservations. When we arrived, my wife had to hunt the valet down while I waited with the car. When he arrived and I told him we were there for the restaurant, he ran back and got another piece of paper and then said to get it validated in the restaurant. Another stellar valet experience.

The restaurant has moved downstairs and is extremely small, dark and cramped. We were the only customers there except for a lady at the bar that appeared to work at the hotel and was working on the menu. The host was also the bartender and our waiter. We decided to have a drink at the bar to soak in all the ambiance that this restaurant provides (lobby music, no Christmas music or decorations, dark, etc.) Our bartender/waiter/host had to find the key to unlock the liquor cabinet. After we ordered, and then explained how to make the drinks we ordered, my wife was instantly on her phone to make another reservation elsewhere. We finished our drinks and paid our tab without even ordering dinner. Our valet was gone again but the cabinet where he keeps the keys was open so I grabbed our keys, left our validated parking and "tip" inside the cabinet and got in our car which was just outside on the street on Ellis. We went to Nan and had a wonderful time!

“Nice restaurant, but a bit small”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Food was good and not too expensive. We got a $15 voucher for the restaurant when we checked in. Service was just fine.

In a city of much fried food, we loiked forward to a restaurant billed as locavore. We shouldve known rhere was a problem when at 7:30 pm on a Saturday night, we were the only diners. The food, which apparently came from organic area farms, was prepared in a mediocre way. hard to believe dried green to atoes could taste so bad in a sourhern state. Thr chicken and duck had uncreative sauces and accompaniments. The terrace outside was a nice French Quarter touch. Tbe aervice was okay, though seemed surprised by a request to taste one of the wines on the list. We didn't dare try the usual dessert (bread pudding, key lime pie, e.g.). Price was more than it was worth. Not to return.
