What an Atlanta treasure. Foody place for sure. Exquisitely prepared food. Vassal, our waiter provided incredible service. The lemon infused russian vodka was great. I had the sweet potato crab appetizer was unbelievable. The tenderloin entree with port reduction was delicious. Great restaurant.

This restaurant has undergone a renovation and there is no formal dress code anymore. Country club casual/business casual is sufficient for an impeccable meal and experience!
