I love the food of course but the vibe is equally important for a restaurant. We came here for a family member's birthday. They really took care of us throughout the night from drink recommendations (definitely try their aviation, even if you're not a gin fan) to dinner menu suggestions. I had the braised beef short rib and it was so tender! They were thoughtful to send a complimentary dessert - one of the best bread puddings I've ever tasted. Overall, it was a truly memorable experience! More

Sushi | Midtown, Atlanta

This was our 9th wedding anniversary, and we both love Nakato's food. I am vegetarian and my husband is pescatarian, and Nakato has an exceptionally good vegetarian options (for an Atlanta Japanese restaurant) . The grilled eggplant is outstandingly delicious, and we also enjoy the goma ae a lot, and the vegetable tempura, which this time was getting close to having the kind of very light batter I hope for (and seems to be impossible to find in Atlanta). So that was a real treat. The restaurant's atmosphere and service are perfect for a special occasion, and usually I would give Nakato 5 stars overall and for every category. My hesitation this time is only because - despite being assured by the staff that we weren't being rushed - we were being rushed. When all the hot food comes out at once, and the hot food is really better freshly hot, there is not much choice than to eat it fairly quickly. More

Mexican | Midtown, Atlanta

This was the best Mexican food we've had in a long time. The guacamole prepared at the table was excellent, and there was plenty of it. The margaritas (locales) were good, as well. The complimentary salsa was smoky and had nice depth to it without being too hot. The Jalisco shrimp were outstanding; a great, smoky sauce, and plenty of shrimp. Service was excellent even though the restaurant was quite busy. It is quite noisy, so perhaps not a place for a business meal or a romantic dinner, and, since the restaurant is open air, the smoke from the patio is unpleasant. These two complaints would normally make me less inclined to revisit a restaurant, but the food was so good that they didn't bother me that much, and I will definitely be back. More

The food is delicious. It is flavorful and different. The service was slow and they were clearly understaffed for the evening. The drinks and food took WAY TOO LONG. It was a pre-theater dinner with warm weather (so the patio was full too). They need to be aware of the Fox on Broadway schedule so they can add more staff on those nights. Everyone arrives and leaves within a 2 hour window for dinner. Our waitress was knowledgeable and great but she appeared to be the only waitress scheduled. More
