Well, I put off writing because there is one thing really cool going on at FAB. The upstairs patio is a wonderful space. You're below the tall buildings around you and it feels kind of eerily like NYC. In fact the whole

I thought I might impress my parents during their visit to Atlanta over Christmas with a nice, expensive dinner. My neighbor suggested FAB. Unfortunately, it was an absolutely embarrassing experience for me. Our server spoke fragmented

The people that work here look really unhappy. I've never seen so many fake looking smiles. I realize in the restaurant business you're on a stage but the people here are like the "Plan 9" of restaurant actors. 5 bucks for parking. my

I work right across the street, so we often frequent FAB for lunch and after work drinks! I love their tomato penne with basil and parm. Also, I highly recommend the field green salad and have it topped with grilled salmon! Their service

I expected more out of FAB but I guess my expectations were a bit too high. The prices are too high for the portions and the meals itself. I enjoyed my meal but it seemed as if I could have had it somewhere else, along with my dates meal

The main dining room offers one large dining space...not cozy like I expect from a typical brasserie. There is a gorgeous wrought iron staircase leading to a banquet space. There is a cool space for a rooftop patio on the third floor

Went with a group of friends. First thing that strikes you is the feel of a old French hotel restaurant with big airy bar area. The food was wonderful and the service was attentive. It's so HUGE! Have to go try the patio seating next time!

It's hard to believe that brasserie could get any better but it has. The food is phenomenal. All of the old favorites are there and they actually taste better. The wine list has greatly improved as well. I hate that it's all the way
