My husband took me to Table 52 to celebrate my birthday. We made a reservation, and upon arrival, were seated promptly. It was our first visit to this restaurant, and I was surprised at how tiny this restaurant is. There really is no place to wait inside if you arrive early, and while there is a bar area, I think it only seats five. The restaurant itself must seat 30 people tops, so for all these reasons, I would strongly recommend a reservation. Despite being small, and filling up fast, we never felt rushed by the staff and there was a nice, romantic ambiance to the tiny dining room.
The complimentary goat cheese biscuits and deviled eggs arrived with our waiter, and were delicious. In fact, I really wish we could have ordered more biscuits to go with our meal! We ordered drinks, and the Margherita pizza appetizer, and then mulled over our menu choices. My cocktail, the spiced pear, was great. The pizza was good, but nothing special. For dinner, I ordered the potato cream cheese dumpling, and my husband has the pistachio-crusted chicken breast. Both were good and very filling! This is not a restaurant where you leave hungry.
I really did not have room for dessert, but since it was my birthday, I ordered Art's Hummingbird cake, which was really delicious. I could only take a few bites of it, so the waiter wrapped the rest up for me to take home.
Overall, I liked this restaurant, but not as much as I hoped I would. The complimentary appetizers and the dessert were they highlights for us. I think that Southern soul food is just to dense for me, but if it something you like, then you probably will love this charming & romantic little restaurant.
