Liquid Diet: Craftbar

My crappy photo of the perfect steak tartare 

CASUAL CHARACTER: Craftbar — the more casual little brother of Tom Colicchio’s Craft located on the building’s first floor — is a nice alternative for something low-key and less expensive. The restaurant’s decor has an organic yet refined feel: Wood walls meet industrial accents such as dangling lightbulb clusters and dark metal. Click here to read the rest…

    Dear Bliss,
    I am in total shock over your review of Craftbar. I have been there twice and will not be returning anytime soon. The service was terrible; rude, inexperienced, unknowledgeable about the menu and food in general and very unprofessional. The portions were tiny and the prices gigantic. None of the dishes we had (3 apps, two mains and 1 dessert) were anything out of the ordinary and when I requested my octopus w/o the ham, it still came with ham! The waiter even tried to convince me that it was a mushroom, but the chef quickly admitted that it was ham! My friend ordered a glass of “house” chardonnay and he brought her a $17 glass. Arrgghhhh. I would have chalked it up to just a bad isolated experience, but both visits were equally unpleasant.

    Your faithful fan, Julie W.

    I totally agree. The service was antiseptic doing everything they had to without being genuine. Our shrimp appetizer was unfortunately the peak dish of the night. Salad needed salt, pork shoulder was average; the desert unbelievably contained an inedible banana in the banana split. It was so bad I initially thought it was a grapefruit in there! At that price there are many other restaurants in Atlanta with better service and food.

    Well, this review is for the Liquid Diet section, which focuses on places you can drink and (sometimes) have a little nosh. As I said, my tartare was beautiful and the drinks were wonderful. I have yet to formulate an opinion about the restaurant as a dining destination, but I would definitely go back for that Sunshine Squeeze and the tartare.

    I ate there on expense account about a month ago and found it to be terrible. Our waiter had no clue, would never refill our water glasses and the hamburger was overcooked and lacking in flavor. I’ll probably give it another try as it had just opened, but color me unimpressed.
