An Atlanta classic

The first time I went several years ago I found it quirky. Now, years later, after many repeat visits, the quirks are comforting because it's like I'm in on a secret: this is one of Atlanta's finest. Far from trendy and focused on food, this place does not disappoint. Everything is fresh and quite often comes from the owners' farm. I can understand how a first-timer to Floataway might be put off; you have to ask what... view more

Mediocre

Mediocre best describes the experience at this restaurant. The setting is smart and interior is fresh and comfortable, but everything else is barely acceptable, especially the prices. On a Friday evening, we were promptly seated at a decent table near the windows (highly recommended as all the other tables are out in the open). Even though we weren't seated right along the windows, the room was cold (literally) an... view more

don't know what to say.

Felt like I was in a mental infirmary like we see on TV to have dinner. This is not even a trendy place. Light green color on wall and ceiling, colorless and lifeless space with white server?s uniform. Tasteless dish plates and plastic laminate table top and aluminum garden chair. Felt strange coffee cup texture on my lips. Foods were average and very basic nothing dramatic. Small selection of menu. Need better mus... view more

Avoid for parties larger then four, Slow service, Unresponsive Management

I made reservations about 2-3 weeks ago for 14 of us to celebrate my 30th bday at Floataway Cafe. They had plenty of time to prepare for such a large party or to decide that they would not have the appropriate staffing that night to serve us all. It took about 20-30 minutes to take our drink order and at least that long to get our drinks. No explanation was ever offered. After we had been there 1.5 hours, our waitres... view more

Good food selection, snobby management

The new renovation at Floataway is very nice and the food is great. However, the waiter we had was unskilled and seemed like he should be waiting tables at Houstons. He was not very knowledgeable about the wine list or menu. The music in the place was bizarre....loud rock which was distracting. I felt like I was dining in the Hard Rock Cafe. When I mentioned to the hostess and manager about the unappealing and o... view more

The Decor has been revamped at the 'new' Floataway Cafe

My wife and I have always loved this neighborhood foodie hideaway. Owned by husband/ wife team, Anne Quantrano and Clifford Harrison, Owners of the West side restaurant Bacchanalia. Floataway is like the sophisticated little sister of Bacchanalia and the food is always fresh, simple and delicious. This gem has been around for a while but the Decor has been newly revamped by the original designer, who happens to be... view more

Who does the hiring??

The service/servers in this restaurant are very much like all businesses owned by this person. Step into Star Provisions and you'll be lucky if someone smiles at you. Sit at the bar at Floataway and you'll be lucky if the bartender looks you in the eye (never mind help with a wine suggestion). Who does the hiring? The food and atmosphere at Floataway Cafe is great. The service is almost baffling. Is it that th... view more

good food, not so good service

The atmosphere is quite different here than other nice restaurants in Atlanta, it is located in an old warehouse. \r You have to walk outside down a hallway to get to the restroom. Despite that being a bit strange, the service was horrible! I was served a flat coke and politely informed our waitress and asked if I could get another. She responded back very rudely. There was non stop attitude the whole time. T... view more

Absolutely Horrid

I was extremely disappointed with this restaurant. Despite having made reservations, I had to wait twenty minutes for my table. The waitress was inattentive generally and took forever to come to take our order. The meal choices I wanted had run out (which was not revealed until after I attempted to order them). I ended up getting meat that was undercooked (not cooked to specifications) and very salty. The side o... view more
