This Buckhead Life stallworth has set the tone for great seafood in the city for years; their amazing selection always blowes me away. They also have a great bar where you can have some creative apps with libations
Highly Overated – I went to AFM on 10/4/08 because it was my sister's birthday and she wanted seafood so AFM is regarded highly for having great food. Firstly, we made reservations for 8:30 we didn't get seated right away because the whole party hadn't arrived yet. Okay, so once we all got there we still weren't seated. We got seated at about 9:15. What's the point in making reservations if we were going to have to wait anyway? Okay so we got the the Hot Tower appetizer for free since we complained about them not seating us on time. Then when we got our food.... for the price they charge for fish they sure don't give you enough. My waitress was very nice and the atmosphere was nice. The drinks were okay but other than that..... Not very special
Very nice experiences on two occasions – I've been to the Atlanta Fish Market twice, and I've enjoyed the quality of the food and the service both times.
I went the first time for a business lunch several months ago and also had dinner there last week. For dinner, my husband and I started out with the Calamari and an order of sushi. Our entrees were delicious and the service was top notch. I highly recommend this restaurant. We did make reservations and did not have a problem getting our table right away.
as my birthday dinner – The food here was good and my service was wonderful. Our server was very attentive and we were asked how we liked the food and everything from who I think is the owner. I would say make reservations for dinner time and they have normal seafood and also sushi, but I did not try the sushi. Recommended for seafood lovers.
What a disappointment! – I am relatively new to Atlanta and have been very impressed with the quality of the restaurants in this restaurant group. I took a visiting freind to AFM for dinner, expecting a very good experience. The service was poor. We had to wait what I considered a long time to order (for a Wednesday night when the restaurant was not crowded). The salads came before the appetizer course - no big deal. However, we sent the entree back when it arrived and still no appetizer course. When we did get our ceviche, it was warm and would have been much better chilled. When the entree arrived the second time it was barely warm. Overall, the food was mediocre. I won't be going back.
we eat here a bit its pretty good for atlanta being atlantas not a city for seafood. but the service is nice the quality is good and its a nice place. the oysters there are wondifull we have them often
Good food & service.......... terrible atmosphere & seating. – We had a reservation and were seated after 1 drink at the bar. It was just my husband & I for our anniversary dinner, we had read all the rave reviews & had to come here.
We were seated at a McDonalds style 2 seater cafe table. Servers were rushing past us the entire meal and our food only just fit on the tiny table! We pretty much felt we were in the way and like sheep herded to one side. My husband ordered Crab legs on a steak, but they had run out (at 7pm), so he ordered crabcakes instead. I got the lobster & both meals were brought out prompty & cooked perfectly.
We had no complaints about the food or the service. Our waitress was pleasant and friendly & was knowlegable of the menu. The atmosphere of the place was just terrible, there was no ambience. Definitely not a romantic restaurant, they packed so many people in there to maximize profit that all you could hear was a mixture of conversations & the clanking of plates and cutlery (i felt like I was in a mall food court). I would maybe come back here in a large group, but that's it!
does not live up to so-called high standards – I can?t tell you anything about AFM?s food because I didn?t get to taste it. My husband and I walked in during the afternoon (day after Thanksgiving) and they were not busy at all. The hostess was on the phone taking a reservation. I was a bit taken aback that she never once smiled and acknowledged us when we walked up to the hostess stand. She didn?t even lift her head once. A friendly smile would have been sufficient to let us know that she saw us and that she would get to us as soon as she could, but that must have been too much to ask. Perhaps she did not want to be there on that particular day, but she needn?t take out her frustrations on the customers. The ?hostess? finally did put the phone down and only asked us for our last name and how many there were in our party.
The "manager" was rude and condescending. It seems that some other folks have posted negative comments about him. I am assuming that it is the same person because it sure sounds like him. Anyway, I lost my appetite by a comment that he made about me to the server. Apparently he must think that he knows me somehow (we?ve never met). She came over to the table acting a bit sheepish. She started to take our order. I told my husband that he could eat but that I didn?t want to. He protested, saying that I should eat something. He had not caught on to what had offended me. We then agreed to leave without ordering anything. We told the waitress that we would pay for the drinks and leave. She said not to worry about the drinks. The same hateful manager came outside to try to ask us if there was a problem and try to convince us in a cheesy, weak, and pathetic way to come back and give them ?another chance.? I responded to him that he was actually was the problem, and that I refused to eat at a place where I am not treated with respect. Will I ever go back there? That remains to be seen. I just hate to give my money to Buckhead life and make those folks who are so undeserving any richer.
TRAP – Food and presentation were very average. Prep. for shell fish was not good. Sevice was not so bad.
Worst Experience in Atlanta Yet! – We went because my father wanted too. That's all I'm going to say. I knew better. Nothing was good from the time we entered the door. One note I need to mention, servers should NEVER have bad personal habits like- Telling us about "their" personal stuff.
nice space, fair service, high price – Firstly, the decor hasn't changed much over the years and that's not necessarily a bad thing. The ceiling is high and the main room is spacious. There are more intimate dining areas towards the front. Whatever you do, do not let them seat you in the back room which has the feel of a basement. The bar area is fine for drinks or dining. Second, the service is OK. Not too bad, but not great. The food was too rich, either too salty, or too buttery. Therefore if you do try this restaurant I recommend sticking with the bare bones broiled or Hong Kong style. But stay away from the overly cheesy whipped potatoes. Because most dishes were highly fattening and too rich to eat I do not plan on returning. However, smart choices of salad w/ light dressing can be ordered.
