“Nice meal - wonderful service”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We opted to have dinner here when every restaurant was booked solid due to a convention and major football game in town (usually we try to eat dinner outside our hotel). Their patio was packed but we were happy to wait for a table so they gave us some water and menus to read while we waited at one of the high top tables inside. Within a few minutes we were seated in a great spot on the patio.

The service was tad slow because the restaurant was packed but the wait staff was very accommodating and made us feel welcome and well treated. It was a beautiful evening so we had no problem with the extra time it took to get our food.

The food was very tasty - we opted for appetizers and salads for dinner - we especially loved the fried green tomatoes. The shaved kale salad was very good as well.

“Another Mixed Review From Me”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

First, the really great. The wild salmon entree was excellent. Ordered cooked thru but not overcooked, dry or burnt it came out perfectly and the side dishes were flavorful.

The soup was too salty. It was some kind of chicken and noodle dish.

The dessert was a peach crisp. It was too bland both in topping and peaches.

Ate here last year with better results. I give it a very good rather than an average or poor due to the full entree that was excellent. It is sometimes hard to balance ratings when something is wonderful and something else is poor to average. Just stay away from the soup and peach crisp!

Two other items. The Ellis moved the restaurant to the first floor right beside the bar. There should be some physical divider between the two areas related to visuals and noise. Secondly, Sirius music played. Too loud and not a pleasant station for relaxed or romantic dining.

“Love - great food and great people watching from the patio”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

I love this place - really, I really do. Local, organic, and great tasting. Yum! Breakfast - tasty, dinner - tasty.

So the one down fall - there are no free refills or at least not on OJ or lemonade so don't assume when they bring you a new glass it is included in the price of the first one - it is a little tricky.

AND THE VIEW - you have to sit on the patio. It is a great view and great people watching on peachtree

“Fallen In Quality”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Used to be one my favorite spots in Atlanta.

The Restaurant has gotten considerably worse. The food is still good, but the management, ambiance, and service are terrible. They shut down the 2nd floor, and crammed everything into the bar area. One of my favorite parts of the Ellis, was sitting on the restaurant balcony overlooking Peachtree. Unfortunately this seating is no longer available. However, they do have a downstairs patio area that is ok.

They really need to up their service and bring back the 2nd floor balcony for me to consider going back.
