We went to BourbonBar hoping to get some breakfast. Yes, there is bar and bourbon in the name, but given that the restaurant is in the Intercontinental, we were hoping for something decent. We were disappointed. The dated décor and odd furnishing gave way to a lackluster menu. There were very few options, some of which included eggs and bacon for $16. The staff was pleasant enough but I was certainly hoping for better.
Hands down, my favorite ATL restaurant! Perfect amount of sophistication, amazing flavors and good vibes.Can't go wrong with any of the items but the biscuits and the collard greens AND the short rib are decadent!
The bar appears to be a good place to have a drink. The establishment is impressive as far as decor. Unfortunately the food was over priced and over cooked. We had the skirt steak that came with chimichurri. Unfortunately is was a berry base and freely poured on the beef. Being partial to Argentinian chimichurri, I didn't suit my pallet. I feel it took away from the flavor of the beef. Their trouffel fries were outstanding. Highly suggested but bring a big bill fold. Their mixed drinks are very good. Definitely a place to have a drink or two. CHEERS! ??
We stopped here for a quick drink with a group of workmates. The drinks were delicious and they have a great selection of bourbon. The seating space is a bit odd, but not enough to keep me away.
Service and food were a bit lacking. Understand that the menu is limited, and what is offered is great, but execution was missing. Few issues with drink service and needing to send cocktails back.
The service started really strong with great attention and regular touch points. But then it quickly deteriorated. The waiter was not knowledgeable about any of the bourbons, which is fine, but non of the drinks came as ordered. My old fashion up, came as bourbon neat, then when I asked them to fix it, they brought an old fashion on the rocks, and my husband ordered a whiskey sour, but got something completely and obviously different. Yet the waiter couldn’t tell the difference. Luckily the manager saw it and knew right away that the drinks were wrong. But it took over 30 minutes to get it right. The food was ok, but when I asked for fries with my steak instead of the veggies, they gave me roasted potatoes instead. It was very expensive for what we got.
Lorenzo Valentine was the best waiter! Very personable and on top of everything. Food was excellent and timely.
So last min some friends and I decided to go here and after making reservations, we were not disappointed. The calamari was amazing. It was big enough serving to share. I had a drink, Just in Thyme. Different from my regular taste but worth it. I finished my meal off with the Georgia Peach Tart. I didn't taste much peach but could see them. It was still delicious! Great experience, I will be back.
Art is no longer the chef here,they changed the name and recipes. I'm glad I called first .so his fried chicken and red velvet cake are no longer on the menue , .they need to take down the old pics and old name so people don't get fooled into thinking it's still ran by the famous chef art
The servers were very attentive & nice. The food was good for the prices & the drinks are good.
I'm not sure if this was actually southern art because the menu was really boring, maybe due to covid-19. The food was definitely good no complaints. We had a dinner for my son 18th birthday and our waiter Lorenzo was awesome. We had a large group and he did his thing and everything was nice and clean. Shoutout to them also because things kicked off 2hrs late due to traffic and waiting on more guest and the dining room manager said no problem we got you. Overall I'll duck back in for dinner again. Sorry I didnt take food pic or decor shots.
I love watching Art on Food Network, so to be able to eat here was a dream. It has been over 2 years and I am still thinking about the food. So good!
We definitely should have checked out the menu after covid. The restaurant was empty, the menu was minuscule, and the service was not great. The poor lady had only been there two days and she was wearing a mask and you couldn't hear her nor understand her accent. I do feel bad for restaurants now with all the challenges that they have with supply chains, price increases, and labor issues. This was to celebrate our 22-year anniversary and it was so bad that we literally left and my husband called Ruth's Chris steakhouse to see if they had an opening an amazingly they did probably because it was early at 6:00 so they fit our party of four right in. So I hope this restaurant gets back to the way it was. It's a very pretty restaurant with the art in the ceiling and the gorgeous lamps. And the fried chicken was awesome when we had it before and it's not even on the menu now and that's what they're known for. So I do feel bad for the restaurant but I'm surprised with it being in the intercontinental hotel that they wouldn't be able to have a larger menu selection.
