We were told to wait and 20 minutes later reminded her, and she said oh and sat us. Our server took forever to be present, and even then didn’t bring drinks, or ask for orders for a while. We timed it, it was 20 minutes from the time we ordered a drink until we received it. Our deviled eggs were frozen, as in ice on the food that we had to remove. For the prices the service should have been better and food shouldn’t come out frozen.

Outstanding! An absolute hidden gem. Went up to Buckhead for a golf lesson and was looking to get a quick bite to eat. Thought a "Diner" would be quick and easy. This "Diner" is so much more. An exceptional experience, food, and service.

Have always had a good experience at BD... until now. Blue cheese chips weren't very crisp, taking into account the melted cheese. Entrees arrived too early before we finished our salads and apps. Hardly any room left on the table. Trout was very oily compared to the last time we ordered that same entree. Meat loaf was a little dry, so I asked for more gravy. In the end the server was nice and apologetic re: the early entree delivery.

My dtr and I dined for Valentine night. Traffic down Piedmont Rd was pure gridlock but we were determined. This was our first time at this diner. Also we lived in this area over 15 years and I have always wanted to eat here but never made plans. I reviewed the online menu but it was still so many delicious choices I was torn. Therefore the Valentine menu was perfect. Appetizers were wedge and bluecheese chips. Main course was the veal and hanger steak. Desserts were delicious. Oh two shots of scotch/whiskey.
I will come here again. Thank you for making our night special!

From the moment Valet opened my car doors, it was a very enjoyable experience. We loved the fact they made us feel welcome and catered to all the way up until we paid the check. Definitely plan to return and bring friends. Thank you all for such a wonderful experience and impeccable service!

We decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day early and had another wonderful meal at one of our favorite restaurants. Our server Celeste made it even more special. Our entrees were good but we especially like the calamari, Baby Gem salad, and White chocolate banana cream pie. We highly recommend the Buckhead Diner.

Was ok relative to expectations. Son has but allergy and they filter oil through walnuts so anything fried is off limits and that is a good portion of the menu. That is partially why lower rating.

All was great until it was time to leave. I discovered my car was pulled up to the front door before we asked for it and my key was left laying on the maitre d’ counter right by the door, unattended, where anyone could have taken it and my car. The manager’s lame excuse was he had to step away for a minute and the valet had an emergency. It was way more than a minute because we gone outside looking for the valet. When he was nowhere to be found we went back in where I discovered my key. We had to have someone find the manager at this point. He became responsible for my car at the point the valet had to leave. He really didn’t seem to care about the fact that he was negligent at all trying to convince me nothing could have happened to my car. Mind you this was Super Bowl weekend when everything going on around the city is in hype mode. My advice to the manager is to stop making excuses and down playing his mistake. Just do your job and take responsibility for what could have been a terrible mistake.

Food was very tasty and presentation was top notch. Service was really good and our server was knowledgeable. Place was clean. Menu is a bit heavier on the seafood side so be prepared to be limited if you're not a seafood lover.

We planned this visit to Buckhead Diner (my favorite of the Buckhead Life Restaurant Group) the evening before to have an early meal after church. Taylor was our server and she was a delight! This outing added to the great day we were having.

Priority seating is just that but don't expect to get in quickly most of the time, esp. weekends.
We sat for at least 15 min s. and nobody ever came over to greet us or even take a drink order.
We had to get up and ask for service and still waited a few. Sever finally came over, seemed stressed and Management didn't even stop by to ever check on us.

Then after waiting for so long they brought the apps and before we were finished were tying to rush the entrees on us - very poor timing. They changed the menu and some of the dishes have been re-done and were just not good.The piece of Mahi did not feel like the same quality of the past - lots of dark spots. The dish was super bland and not worth eating.
Even the french fries were just fair- semi overcooked.
Left disappointed, felt undervalued as a patron and very underwhelmed by everything there. I hope it was just an off night and I will NOT be rushing back!
