Long before Top Chef appeared on TV screens and the latest round of New Southern restaurants opened to rave reviews, Chef Jason Hill has been plying his trade here in Inman Park. Favorites like their shrimp & grits and their skate have fans throughout the neighborhood.
GREAT FOOD.. FAST SERVICE.. – ok i took my picky eater boyfriend to this resturant based on the reviews and star ratings. I did read some of the reviews which help with deciding what to order. We had the arugula salad to start off. My boyfriend is not a salad eater at all, and HE LOVED THIS SALAD.. He said it was the best salad he ever had. For our entree he had theGrilled Center Cut Beef Tenderloin w/ braised greens mac & cheese. I had the Natural Iron Skillet Fried Chicken w/ braised collards & sweet corn bread.. We both shared each others entree. The food had so much flavor and the textures were awesome together.. I can't say which is better, its all depends on if your in the mood for chicken or steak. Our service was very fast. I made reservations on a Wednesday , but I didn't need to, we got there at 8pm.. ordered our drinks, salads and entree.. we were out of there by 8:50...
Great!!!! – The place is perfect for any occasion. The food is amazing, and so flavorful. The ambiance is excellent, relaxed yet fun. The service is very professional. Servers are on top of things! I love it! The location is convenient too!
Super Lamb Chop...Super Service – Have visited Wisteria a number of times and always enjoy myself there. Generous portions, great flavors and seasonal specials are some of the reasons this is my "go-to" place anytime. Try the scallop appetizer, the chicken entree, of course the lamb, the filet, the desserts...no misses on the menu in my opinion. Even if you go solo, one feels as comfortable at the bar as with a large group.
Top Notch food for a romantic date – My wife and I arrived with a reservation but wasn't needed on a monday and were seated promptly. Our apps and salad were so-so, crab bisque wasn't as good as my mom's from home in Louisiana( i think i'll get scallops next time). However my mom would be upset to hear that the fried chicken, bacon braised greens!!!, corn pudding and bread pudding absolutely put her's to shame. My wife had the beef tenderloin with mac and cheese, also delicious. We had a nice wine pairing and the portioning was thoughtful, we left full and satisifed. Will go again!
don't get it – good wine list. enjoyed the cocktails. service is slow, uninterested and with an attitude and who needs that?
I tried it several times to be sure and want to support it as I live in Inman, but it just does not deliver the quality it charges for and I do like their sister, pozole
Great food, great atmosphere, great wine list – Always great when we visit wisteria. Great food and service. a "must" in atlanta
Fantastic food, good date spot – I love this place! Great fried chicken. Chef Jason rocks!
Love, love, love this restaurant! – This is THE absolute best restaurant in Atlanta, hands down. From the moment you walk in the door, to the moment that last taste of dessert smacks your lips, it is nothing short of perfection.
The wait staff are knowledgeable about the food, the ingredients, etc. Their service skills are impeccable and they run the place like a well-oiled machine.
I've been to this restaurant many, many times, and will keep coming back.
Thank you, Wisteria!!!!!
One of my favorites – local, fun, great food. A lot of people talk about Wisteria in our neighborhood, so i'm glad it's still around and doing well.
Excellent meal – Took my wife for dinner on a tuesday nite. Had reservations but not needed. Really like the small and intimate atmosphere. We had the hummus appetizer which was top notch. We actually had it cleared from our table with some left (not like us at all), but felt with so much food coming it would fill us up...Our waitress brought our arugula salad (we ordered one to share) already split on two plates, very thoughtful. The salad was excellent with a few dried onions. My wife and I loved it. Now the fun part - we ordered the skate wing and fried chicken entrees. I was a little hesitant on the skate, but since I saw so many people rate it highly - and the servers endorsement...I took a chance. It was AWESOME. It had a scallop feel and was fibrous, not fishy at all. The grits served with it made the dish. The chicken was delightful, a true southern dish cooked masterfully. I mentioned to the server it was my wifes birthday, and she brought our dessert (3 small dishes - dried cherry tart, chocolate pecan pie and carrot cake) with a lit candle. Great atmosphere, perfect service, timing, and food. The wine list it great, I had white and my wife merlot - both by the glass. Appetizer, salad, 2 entrees, dessert and 3 glasses of wine total - $85. A deal, we will be back - with friends!
