Location: Right off of the street and in the same plaza as Yogli Mogli. Parking is a bit tight and they do not offer much parking space, so I recommend finding a spot on the side of the street and then walking. Atmosphere: My friend and I sat on the patio, which was nice and offered views onto the street. It also has a warm and rustic vibe. When you first walk into the restaurant I was greeted by a very friendly host who asked if we wanted to either sit inside or outside. He then led us to our table which was very clean and simple. The inside of the restaurant features a wall of wine options that you can choose from and also features desserts that I think you can pick up for togo. Murphy’s has a very casual laid back atmosphere that transports you to a Cali winery. Food/Beverages: We ordered the mimosas which were good because how can you really butcher a mimosa (juice & champagne)? I ordered the quinoa squash with the artichokes as an appetizer and a side of their mac and cheese. My lovely friend ordered their special, which was grilled scallops over angel hair pasta and tossed in a pesto sauce. The artichokes were very good because they were grilled and served with a delicious lemon aioli of some sort. I LOVE artichokes and boy, they did this artichoke justice. The quinoa squash was also delicious and perfectly seasoned. Many places usually offer bland vegetable entrees, but Murphy’s seasoned this entree to perfection. It was surprisingly good. The thing that stole my heart was actually the mac and cheese. I love mac and cheese and this was some good ole mac and cheese. I think they used some sort of white cheddar and truffle oil, which complemented the cheese very nicely. I also loved the fact that they used a thicker type of pasta in order to catch every drop of their delicious cheese sauce. If you do not thick that the shape of the pasta affects how a dish tastes, then you my friend need to try their mac and cheese. It was goooooood. My friend’s scallop pesto pasta was also very flavorful, light and filling. The pesto sauce was divine and she raved about the perfection that the scallops were cooked to.Service: Our server was very attentive to us and made sure that we had everything we needed. Overall: Murphy’s is a great place for a unique spin on traditional american food. Everything was seasoned to my liking and I will definitely be back to try some of their other offerings. Parking is a bit of a pain, but a bit of walking is not all that bad. I am surprised that I haven’t heard about this gem in Virginia Highland’s until now.
This place was the ultimate experience for out of state visitors. My friends and I are all about the true dining experience. We love chic eateries with amazing decor that put such a big smile on your face when you walk in. I love to feel like I'm in a movie when I am out dining and this place did just that. When you pull up to the establishment you are a little confused because it looks like you just pulled up to a garage shipping dock. Parking wasn't anywhere insight so we paid for valet. Shortly there after we walked into an amazing restaurant that is mouth dropping. It has a very urban New York sophisticated upscale hipster appeal. The bar tender was very well versed in her knowledge of cocktails so we took her suggestions for drinks. The restaurant is very large in size. We decided to sit outside on their amazing patio surrounded by trendy lofts and a beautiful landscape of rich greenery. Their outside dining was absolutely one of the best experiences I have had. The weather was even great in November of 2014. The drinks are a bit pricey as it is upscale dining, but I experience is well worth. We only stayed for drinks as we were just looking for place to kick back and have a few cocktails. I totally recommend this place as a date night restaurant or a girls in the city night out with your with your closest friends. I will definitely visit this place the next time that I am in Atlanta. The service was a plus. This place is definitely an attraction for Atlanta visitors.
I have lived in Mariposa Lofts going on 4 years now. I absolutely love it here and it is in the MaryLin/Inman/Grady school district! The location of our unit is perfect for us. Just the right amount of sun for both balconies, no sound from any neighbors, looking over the pool, beltline & Atlanta skyline. Love the top floor! Carla and the front desk staff go above and beyond for me and my family and Mike and his team replace and fix things same day! Had my AC stop working... Whole new unit replaced the next morning. My range had some un-even heating in the oven...... 3 days later a BRAND NEW gorgeous convection drop in range! When things go wrong, I have never, ever felt like I was putting someone out. The series "Being Mary Jane" was just filmed here and I just found out that the whole building is going through a complete renovation. New gym, media center, exterior, front office and also the units! So glad that we chose Mariposa Lofts years ago. It really feels like we are on vacation everyday. :) Yes, there is a problem with break-ins to units as well as lots of cars. BUT now we have 2 security guards that walk the complex just for us and when I asked for an additional dead bolt to be installed on the front door it was completed the next day free of charge.
Lots of positives, but more negatives. Great location! Close to everything! Convenient! But Camden Phipps also has a high crime rate and limited parking, which the management lies about and never tells about. My apartment in Camden Phipps was broken into one year and my motorcycle was stolen another. The management wouldn’t allow me to see the video camera tapes if any and neither incident was announced to the other tenants on the property. Many tenants have dogs, but there is no green space on the property so dog waste would sometimes sit for days in halls and a few times on my door mat. Camden has done a great job fixing up the property. The pool area is very nice and vacant apartments are renovated, but rents have gone up by almost 20% a year. Because of increases in the rents, a lot of old tenants have moved on and there is a changing demographic in the area. The maintenance turnaround has slowed since Camden has taken over. The old management would fix things in a day, while Camden can take up to a week. If you plan on moving into Camden Phipps, please ask a tenant about the issues, because the agents and property manager Tiffany Days have been known to be dishonest.
I moved in a year and a half ago. The first year was ok, had no problems! if I had an issue with maintenance, I would call Steve the maintenance man and he'd come fix it!!This year Steve quite, the switch for my oven went out. They said they had to order a switch. It took almost 2 month's, of me calling and going and going to the office. They just got another stove to replace mine. then i started having problems with the plumbing.Now the water in my bathroom sink keeps coming up. they came twice already to fix it, the second time the had a plumber come out and dig. it worked for 2 weeks now its back just like it was!!!!! Now its on me cause I left my car door unlocked. But i've done that many time, even forgot to let my windows up. well last night they went through my car pulled out all my papers, just trashed my car, cause there was nothing in my car!!! These guys have been hanging out side, when I come out sometimes there guys sitting on the steps leaving their trash!!! the complex doesn't even blow the walk ways anyway!!!!! Spider webs, bugs , leaves, flyers from restaurants!!! I WILL NOT BE RENEWING MY LEASE!!!!
This place is actually really good for a couple of reasons.A lot of people seem to think this place is ghetto and full of riff raff. I've been living here almost 7 months now. The majority of people I see are African American, which basically means the people who make those assumptions are stereotyping based off of race. Tsk tsk. That and you would be surprised how many parking spots DON'T have cars in them lol.Anyway, what has impressed me the most is the staff here. They do not play. Felipe is seriously one of the best employees I've ever seen in that business. If you have a problem, he gets to the bottom of it period. Not just him either, the whole staff. I'm under the impression they are turning that place around and maybe it used to be kind of "ghetto". They are doing a good job if that's the case.I haven't had any problems there. Nor have there been any crazy incidents like cars getting broken into, murders, or crime in general. I think I got lucky because my back patio is very private and quiet which I love. I haven't had any issues here at all. None.
've been living here now for a little over 2 years and I love this place! When I first moved to Atlanta it was a really quick move and I didn't really have time to apartment search, The Prato was close to work, and they worked with me giving me advice on the phone, and sending me photos of my then studio.I was so happy with their service I ended up moving in blind without ever seeing the studio. And let me tell you I LUCKED OUT! It was so big compared to the studios in New York, and cheap! I even had a balcony and the complex had amenities- I never had any of that back home. A week into living in my new place I got a knock on the door, and got fresh baked cookies from a young couple called "The Cares Team" who put together events in the complex. I was sold. Now I won't say that everything has been perfect, this summer my AC went out, but I put in a ticket and alerted maintenance and it was up and working again in less than an hour. Avery is always there whenever I have a question or need something fixed, and he genuinely cares about his residents.
����Where do I start? If you are celebrating an event this is not your spot. I made reservations for 6 and received an email saying my reservations were received. I arrive at the restaurant only to wait 15 minutes for the Hostess who was having a intense conversation with another group who were unhappy and then left. I was told there was no record of my reservation and that I was supposed to receive a text confirmation. How was I supposed to know that? After some discussion, the Hostess seated us and told us we would have to give up our table in one hour and 45 minutes to stand because there was no other available seating. Our waitress came with menus and took one drink order only to come back 20 minutes later w/o the one drink. After one person in my party let the waitress know how she felt the waitress bought us a round of drinks. All through the night we saw the Hostess having unpleasant conversations with other groups who appeared dissatisfied. On the up side the food and the DJ were good. WHO MANAGES THIS SPOT?
The design and location are more interesting than the menu. Frankly, the brunch menu is too snooty for me, and it includes minor Southern delicacies. I started with the pimento cheese; it's savory, and the topped bacon is well incorporated, but it's slightly too smokey. My meal was the griddled biscuit in which was disappointing. The sausage in the biscuit was very spam-like. It had the same look and consistency as cooked spam. The bacon was a hard, thick slice of what tasted like cooking oil. The biscuit was somewhat dry but had a good texture. The good in this conjunction was the fig and cheese had a lot of flavors! The potatoes were well done as well which I prefer. I did not enjoy my cocktail; there was too much grapefruit in my Venetian Spritzer, so it was very sour and unpleasant. The silver lining is the staff is helpful, and the outdoor patio is beautiful! I'd return if a regular menu item is added. I hope waffles is in the near future.
This place was pretty good. Where they seated us, however, was not what we were expecting. Although they had at least 6 other empty two person tables that did not say reserved, they sat us at the back or the restaurant where all the servers had to squeeze by our feet to take the food back to the bus station. We were by a tarp that covered their firewood. Our backs were almost touching the window display of another shop behind us. Their cocktails were delicious and the complimentary picked and Creme fraise was a nice touch. The charcuterie was adequate, although not the best I've ever had. The portion was large, however. The dessert was awful. As in, we each took a bite and put our forks down. The waitress didn't seem to notice... the apple tarts was burnt to a crisp on the bottom and the ice cream flavor was olive oil... what? They didn't mention that on the menu. I'd go back, but I'd ask to sit somewhere else and not order the dessert again.
