After several weeks of my friend raving about this establishment, we went here for a quick dinner tonight. We were greeted by a very nice hostess and seated upon entry. It was unusually chilly for a late May night, however, that didn't stop several patrons seating outdoors on the patio. Overall the ambiance was nice and our waitress was very... More

We discovered this restaurant by accident when we stumbled onto a TV show about Atlanta area restaurants that included a segment on it. It was a happy accident. We’ve had lunch here three times and dinner once, all in the last two or three months. Our experience was consistently satisfying. Servers were informal, which suits us fine, and unfailingly pleasant.... More

Food 101 is one of the original upscale 'pub' type restaurants in Atlanta and I enjoyed my recent visit after many years away. The interior was inviting, casual, comfortable and a little loud but relaxed. The hosts and wait staff were very friendly and attentive and the service was quite good with the manager checking on us. There is a... More

We went here over a year and the service and the food left a lot to be desired so we thought we would check it out again since it is convenient. First, they still need to clean the place. Apparently in over a year, they have not found the soap and water or the mop. The service has improved considerably.... More

Ate here with a a party of five. Great food and service. The pork enchilada was amazing. We tried several drinks from the cocktail menu and they were all good.. Your meal comes with corn bread which was great. Will definitely eat here again when in Atlanta.

I met a friend here for a late lunch. The place wasn't very busy, so we sat at the bar. The bartender (Todd) was very pleasant and helpful. The bar is well stocked and the bar area is comfortable. The food was very good and it came out promptly. No complaints; very solid place to eat and/or drink.

After reading a number of Trip Advisor reviews complaining about poor-to-surly service I was leery about visiting this place, but did so on a recent Tuesday evening because of a discount offer. What I found was service that was quite attentive, pleasant, and efficient, suggesting that management has taken the criticism to heart. Food ranged from good to excellent, with... More

Food 101 has been a favorite for years. Being a fan of Manhattan cocktails, their barrel aged Manhattans are just what the doctor ordered! There are several varieties and all are delicious. They also have an extensive selection of premium spirits and excellent bartenders, if Manhattans aren't for you. The food is a combination of familiar and eclectic. I like... More

We had a new employee mixer here and it was very nice. I love the ambiance of the place and the food was very tasty. Servers were on their game too.
