Recently, we had an event with 14 of us traveling to Atlanta. We made reservations as recommended weeks before arriving for the The Dove Awards. The manager immediately opened the door for us all upon arrival. We felt welcomed. Our water glasses were filled and we received menus. We waited for 25+ minutes to get our orders taken. We had to go to the bar to get any other kind of beverage. One of our guests asked for Iced Tea.... our waiter suggested to go across the street to Mary...view more Mac's Tea Room for her tea. The entree's came out slowly 1 and 2 at a time. After another 15 minutes our waiter came to see if we go our orders while he was on smoke break (my husband found him outside)...we still had two orders not received. The bartender asked for extra tips for making our drinks. The food was ""OK"".... Shrimp pasta was tasty, pork tenderloin moist.... other than those two entrees nothing to write home about. The music was so loud we couldn't hear each other without raising our voices. After speaking with the manager he said he would talk about later with them. Sadly, our last meal in town for a celebration was not worth the money nor time. The area holds many great restaurants.... enjoy THEM!view less

Guess I can't get over the poor service by the wait staff. My husband and I had to ask for everything...even a dessert menu. I was going to get a glass of wine with dinner but our server was nowhere to be found. The food was good but not good enough to justify being treated with indifference.
I began to wonder if maybe we weren't trendy enough to fit with this establishment's own view of itself.
We are excellent tippers...usually more than 20%. We could barely muster up 15% for the d...view moreisappointing evening.view less
If you're looking for a week-night dinner destination, I would definitely recommend Top Flr, especially if you're looking for something different. The food is nothing special, but the wine list is appealing. And more than anything, the waitstaff is incredible. They are masters of knowing when you need something and knowing when you prefer to be left alone. Service is so important in the entire restaurant experience, and this place really respects the art of delivering quality servi...view morece.view less
I'd heard both good and bad things about this place but I thought I'd go anyway and see how I would feel about it. I'm glad I did b/c not only was the food incredible, but so was the service and general ambiance - they have a lot of natural light w/ the big windows and the decor is chic & simple, making the relatively small space feel a lot biger than it really is. I had the gnocchi and my friend had a salmon dish - both of which were delicious! Plus everything was super affordable. I ...view morewould definitely go back.view less
This place, as another critic spoke of, is so pretentious! The staff themselves think they are in some sort of swank NYC elite club. The food is mediocre, nothing to proverbially write home about. I would never go back to the place ever, especially with it's ? la carte menu! You would be better off going to Whole Foods, about a mile away, than to spend your hard earned dollar here.
I am African American my wife is caucasion, we stepped into the door of the establishment, with an actual 9pm reservation. Then another couple, about 3 minutes later walked in, also a man that was solo. The host finally came, passed by us and went for the other couple, asking them how many were in their party! Then asked the other gentleman how many was in his party! Finally asked us [last]. We will NEVER go back to the place again! It is an overpriced, bigoted, highfalutin, ostentatio...view moreus, pompous piece of c***!view less
Does the phrase ""pretentiously unpretentious"" mean anything to you?
Don't let the prices on the menu or the barebones, midrange appearance fool you: This place is a-la-carte, and it adds up incredibly quickly. When people here say ""inexpensive,"" they must not be comparing it to other restaurants with plastic chairs.
The food is reasonably good but unexceptional.
Basically, if you want to spend money pretending to be a hipster bohemian, sitting in a faux-retro chair in a d...view morerafty attic, go here. If you value your cash -- or authenticity -- avoid it.view less
Top Flr has quickly become one of our favorite ""go-to"" restaurants. It is great food and wine with reasonable prices. For first-timers, I definitely recommend the hummus appetizer. I also highly recommend the grilled asparagus and tomatoes. And finally, for dessert, the chocolate truffle cake is fabulous! Not only do we enjoy the food and drinks, but the service has always been great for us!\r
I went to dinner with 3 other friends on a saturday night and we all loved Top Flr! We had a reservation for 10pm but decided to walk in at 9.15. We were seating within about 20 minutes. It was a touch drafty where we were seated but that was a minor let down. We liked most of what we ordered...lamb skewers, oysters, mac and cheese, potatoes, duck pasta and crab lobster, hanger steak. I tried a bit of everyones food and was generally impressed. I loved the crab lobster. I have a deligh...view moretfully brooding class of Rioja! I def recommend this place to hang out with friends for a for a hot date!
