I've been to Silk twice. The food was overpriced and not very good. I love sushi, but their's was NOT FRESH! Take you money elsewhere. Cool interior though.

While I'm a big fan of Silk's sister restaurant, Pacific Rim Bistro, this was my first time in. Tried previoulsy, but someone's auto was out of control, and smashed into the entrance, and they were closed briefly. Upon entering, I was greated by one of the most beautiful and charming Asian woman, I've ever seen. She was wrearing a tan Chanel suit, and yes, made of silk. She led us to our booth, with silk cushions, and a fresh orchid on the table. The interior is very elegant, with a loft feel. Our server was outstanding, and explained several choices on the menu.

We started with the Seafood Tower. Pure heaven. My partner ordered the Chilean Sea Bass in miso broth. I had the grilled snapper, with ponzo sauce and fresh Asian vegetables. Two of the best Asian-Fusion dishes we have ever had. How could it get any better. Well it did. For desert we split the Mt. Fugi Apple. It was sliced at the table, and drizzled in dark and white chocolate. I wanted to stay all night. We will be back soon, very soon!

Cons: Pricey, But Well Worth It!

If your looking for a great place to eat, you have to try Silk. You must try their fried sea bass. It is a mouth-watering dish that makes you beg for more. Also, if your just looking for a good time, the people their are awesome!

Brought my girlfriend here the other night to have a nice dinner before heading to the movies at Atlantic station. I've passed by the restaurant many times as I'm a frequent diner at Noodles.

I'll have to admit. I'm not really into the whole "Asian Fusion" type scene as I usually like my asian food traditional. But after a few recommendations and reading the reviews on city search i decided to give the restaurant a try. First thing you notice is how well designed the restaurant is. A trendy open atmosphere greets you as soon as you walk in the door ( My date loved it ). The wait was minimal, and the hostess quick to greet. While we were waiting, the manager overhead my girlfriend and Is conversation about what to after the movie and came over and gave us recommendations and apparently made my girlfriends day commenting on how wonderful her shoes were (. Women).

At the recommendation of our waiter we got the crab croquettes for the appetizer which I ended up getting a second order. My date got the lobster bisque, which she said was good but ended up eating most of my second crab croquettes order. For dinner I ordered the Sea Bass from the recommendations here. Stasya ended up ordering a sushi plate (forgot the exact name)

While the croquettes were good the seabass was delicious. Smooth, soft, and buttery, a winner in my book. My date enjoyed the sushi but we will have to visit another time so I can try some myself before I can give my opinion. Our waiter wasn't the quickest I ever had but he was friendly and attentive.

Overall, great experience, a perfect place to have a fulfilling dinner before a night out on the town. Parking is free (validated) and its located right down the streen from Atlantic Station. While my Asian Fusion bias cannot let me recommend the restaurant if you are looking for a traditional asian meal. I can definitely recommend Silk if you are looking for a great dining experience.

Pros: Great location, wonderful food, fun atmosphere

Cons: Nothing big enough to really consider a "con"

I went early on a saturday night around 6:00. It was not crowded whatsoever, and missing my reservation at 5:45 was not a big deal. Valet parking was right next door down 8th street and cost $5.00. We were greeted nicely. The separate meal/drink waiter system failed though. Our drink waiter never showed up, but our regular waiter was on it and did his job for him. My date and I both chose to eat off of the pre-theater menu which allows for 3 courses for $27.00. I would say that it was reasonably priced. I had the surf and turf which was excellent, and my date ate sushi which she enjoyed. The only thing we had that was unsatisfactory was the fried dumplings. The decor was nice and added to the upscale feel. The dinner was presented very well on the plate. Loudness was not an issue, however, it was not very crowded. The chairs were extremely noisy on the wood floor though. Overall, I enjoyed my experience here and would recommend it.

Pros: Decor, Food Presentation, Pre-Theater Menu

Now here is an untold secret!!! I have been in the Atlanta area for over 2 years, and I am quite amazed I found such a diverse and delightful resturant! The menu was completely fabulous with items such as the Chilean Sea Bass, Red Snapper, and Seafood tower! The food was the absolute best I've ever tasted. The Chef takes much pride in the preparation and flavor of the Steaks, which I highly recommend!! He even spices things up a bit by adding a GAME-OF-THE-DAY, for example the WILD BOAR or the OSTERICH--both extremely marelous!! I can't believe this place has been her this long !!!!!!!! GO CHECK IT OUT!!!

Pros: food, service, atmosphere

The atmosphere at Silk can be described by no other word than magical. The only thing more magical than the atmosphere is the menu. Its comprised of a variety of appetizers and Entr'ees that leaves everyone who eats at Silk with a new favorite dish. Personally, my favorite is the sea bass. Do yourself a favor and reward yourself with a night at Silk.

The management is extremely rude;don't understand the philosophy of "customer service".

The important concept here everyone must meet their $20/person minimum. Our bill was about $400 and the manager made it a point to come over and tell us one person did not meet their minimum even though we averaged about $35/person. She told us that we need to read the menu about the minimum which is located on the last page. She also said that since the minimum was not met by one, she would not want us to come back. How Rude!

Oh yeah, you better like what you order and get a clear understanding of how the dish is prepared b/c the manager will tell you the next time you go to a restaurant you need to tell the waitress what you like and dont like, its not our responsible to tell you whats in a dish.

Been here several times on various occasions since they've been open. Always the same experience except prices seem to be higher than ever. The food is definitely good and the atmosphere cool and modern. If you are interested in a seeing and be seen environment at an Asian fusion restaurant serving nice cocktails and good sushi this is ideal on the weekends. Please be warned the prices are not moderate, they are high. The food items are good, not great nor exceptional. The service has always been spotty and somewhat pretentious. Location is great as it's located near other restaurants and shops. It would not be a disappointment to try this restaurant unless you were concerned about getting your money's worth. Dress to impress or you might get the cold shoulder.

All of the 5 star reviewers have only reviewed ONE restaurant. This one! I'm a little wary of whose these people, or this person may be!!

Silk used to be wonderful. We have been 10+ times over the last three years, and while the initial experiences were great, the recent ones have been a disaster.

Worse though is that the concept seems to be fizzling. The (formerly great) signature lobster special is now off the menu. The sushi omakase, which I ordered for the first time last night because I was in the mood for something light, was an exercise in menu deception. Instead of having the promised "selection of the freshest sushi the chef has to offer" I was presented with four courses, only one of which was fish! A hot soup with cooked fish, hot cooked crab with aioli over scallops in the shell, (the so-so sushi course), and the, the piece de resistance, a dish of (allegedly) Kobe beef meatballs.

I could not have been more shocked when the meatballs were delivered, and as I was about to eat it, the manager came to the table and asked how things were going. I told him (and I had not yet reached the complaint stage) that I was not expecting to be served meatballs. His reply: "Yes, it is a nice surprise, isn't it?" Under my breath -- "No." I begin eating the meatballs, and after two bites, I begin sharing my partner's dinner of king crab legs and cold mashed potatoes.

When I expressed my displeasure with the omakase in general to the same manager, he said that he would "take it off" the bill. He did not, he merely deducted three-eighths of the price. I guess he determined that I was five-eighths satisfied. You should have seen my cartoon-style double-take at the entry of "Omakase Kobe Beef" on the bill.

We have been recommending Silk to intown friends, OTP voyagers, and out-of-town guests for years. These recommendations will now cease. As great new Midtown restaurants have opened, Silk has lagged behind and been lapped.

Note: if you go, enjoy the great remnants of the wine list developed by sommelier Gregg, who has left, probably recognizing that Silk has seen better days.

Cons: Pretension not worthy of the price. Oblivious, if not ambivalent, management.

Sushi is one of my favorite foods and it not only looks good but tastes good at Silk restaurant. I also enjoyed the atmosphere and the Fashion Show while eating at the same time. That's cool!

Went to Silk this weekend and strongly reccommend it to anyone! It had the best atmosphere, from excellent service where you feel as if you are the most important guest to amazing decor throughout the restaurant. The food was also impressive and of great quality. The combination of all these qualities made it an enjoyable evening that I would definitely reccommend to everyone!

This place has awesome atmosphere and unbelievable food. We went on a weeknight around 7:30 and it was practically empty until at least 8:30, so go early if you don't have a reservation. Their menu is unique, but it's not so fancy that real people won't enjoy the food. I am notoriously picky and I loved everything we had. My husband and I can personally highly recommend the surf n' turf and the shrimp & scallops. Save room for the marble cheescake brownie - it's amazing. The service was great, and everyone was very courteous. If we lived in Atlanta we'd eat there as often as we could afford it.

As you enter Silk, you can't help but be impressed with their decor. The owners definitely know how to set the mood and atmosphere. Just last week I attempted to throw my girlfriend a birthday dinner there. I could not have asked for better service, food, and privacy. They set aside an area within their restaurant which was very private and beautifully decorated. Even though they were busy that night, the host, servers, and owners definitely made this a memorable birthday.

Many restaurants are meant for the sole purpose of eating. However, Silk is more than that. After going to Silk several times, I can easily say that it is one of the best restaurants I've ever been to in Atlanta. The interior welcomes each costomer with a stylish decor that it's no wonder why many people, such as myself, enjoy this unique and comforting atmosphere. People come in just to sit at the bar and have a drink with the company of the wonderful people of Atlanta. The food is great! My favorites are all of the steaks! I especially love the rib eye, cooked and served to perfection! But if I feel like eating something a little lighter, the sushi bar is perfect, with a nice variety of different sushi. Of course, what makes Silk really stand out is all the amazing events. From fashion shows to magazine parties, Silk has it all! Great food, great service, great style, and great entertainment!

im usually more of a bbq and good old american burger type of guy... and i only occasionally go out to fancy restaurants like silk... my experience there was pretty cool... when you walk into silk its definitely one of a kind. you feel really comfortable in there and not intimidated like you would at some other nice restaurants. the dining is very relaxed while at the same time very upscale. the bathrooms are pretty cool too... i had steak and it was great.. so were the mashed potatoes (both had an asian twist to them - the potatoes had a hint of wasabi - surprisingly really good!).. i was expecting to pay a fortune but it wasnt too bad and i would definitely go again (esp if i wanted to impress someone and not go overboard)... A++

I live 2 blocks away from it, so I frequent Silk often. The service is impeccable. The waiters are knowledgable about the menu, and always service with a smile. But beware the sushi takes a while when it is busy, but it is definitely worth the wait. And I actually never had a problem with the quality of the sushi, always fresh. O yah, my favorite dish is the kobe burger. Try it, you won't be sorry.

I have been going to Silk ever since they opened and am ecstatic about their new menu which features a Basil Shrimp pasta, Kobe Steak, Chilean Sea Bass and a Lobster Bisque that is out of this world. The wine list is great and the servers are friendly and professional. Overall I would rate this restaurant an 11 out of 10.

After waiting for the valet for 10 minutes, I headed inside while my husband looked for parking. I asked the hostess about the valet. She said it takes a long time they have to go up and down some stairs. The restaurant clearly was aware of the delays.

The waitstaff was totally inattentive. It took 10 minutes for our waitress to come. Twenty minutes after the menu was explained, we flagged down someone to take our order. We mentioned that our waitress had not been back. There was no apology or offer to follow up with her. Our cocktails arrived when our dinner did. The food was cold. No one checked on us. We finished our dinner and waited for a dessert menu but we were never offered one. Finally we flagged down someone to bring us a check. This is the worst service we've had in Atlanta.

Silk advertises fresh...however; fresh is far from what they serve.

The crab legs tasted like sawdust and were obviously previously frozen for awhile. The Sea Bass which at a recommendable restaurant would have been light and flaky...was like an old rubber shoe.
Not to mention the portions left alot to be desired for the price.

The atmosphere was aesthetically pleasing but so loud you couldn't hear the person in front of you.

The service...two people supposedly waiting on us...
The drink server didn't show up to offer us a drink until the food was in front of us.
After my boyfriend finished 2/3 of his cocktail the server removed the glass without permissioin and then never showed back up to offer another!

Not eating but a few bites of our horrible meals we left hungry with $130 less and a memory of the worst restaurant experience in Atlanta!

The food was frozen, not fresh as described by the waiter and the hostess/manager confirmed this when we complained. The crab legs and lobster tail were dry and tasted much like old rubber in addition to the portion sizes being miniscule. Also, The two-server system they use is very ineffecient. Our food waiter was very polite and offered great service, but the drink waiter was nowhere to be found. It took 15 minutes to get our first drink and that was after we asked for it. I sat with an empty drink glass for the rest of the night despite repeated inquiries.

Our legitimate complaints were not accommodated by the Manager, nor did she offer to substitute the dishes for something else. The ambience was ok, but it's simply too loud. Save your $ and hit another spot... I know we'll never be back.

The crab coquette- excellent, spring rolls- mediocre, wok tossed calamari- awful. The lobster bisque, yuk. Three of us ordered lobster after server recommendation. In addition to being scammed on the price (were told it was 4 pounds and we were charged for a 5.5 pound, a difference of nearly $40), it was not great. Were told it would be partially removed from the shell, it was not. I don't mind paying $140 for a lobster dinner, I do not expect to have to shell it myself for that price. On the positive, one person ordered the lamb and was very pleased. As well, the Mt. Fuji Apple was scrumptious! We had two men that were serving us, one very well intended but not very good, and another who seemed disinterested in what he was doing. We had to ask for refills three times and were given the wrong drink twice.

Last night my three friends and I had one of the best dinners ever at Silk. The service was just so wonderful and the food was simply amazing. We all had something different and each plate came out looking like art! The tastes of Asian infused sauces only enhanced the food. Anyone looking to actually go out and dine needs to try this place! We will be back and are glad to have found Silk.

I absolutely adore this restaurant. The service is outstanding and the food......fantastic! The menu is a pure treat with a variety of food selections from sushi to kobe steaks/burgers to amazing seafood dishes and not to mention a fantastic bar menu for those looking for a lighter fare for the evening. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that is looking for an extraordinary experience.......you won't be disappointed.

Visited Silk last night and came away very impressed. I had the Elk and it was not gamey and the sauce was excellent and my wife had the special (mediterranean sea bass) which was presented as a whole fish and carved table side. However, the most impressive part was the service--hostess, server, and manager were all right on top of things. I'll be back

I definitely do not recommend Silk. The waiter knew nothing about the menu. Before I ordered the stuffed duck breast, I asked him what it was stuffed with. He told me it was stuffed with a spinach mixture. Turns out it was stuffed with liver. Besides that the duck tasted extremely gamey. The lobster tail was like rubber and the mashed potatoes could have been instant potatoes. Not worth the $$$

The management and owner are extremely rude and do not grasp the simple philosophy of "customer service". They are more intent on making you feel like a second-class citizen that should be thankful to have stepped into their establishment and presence, as opposed to ensuring that it's a pleasurable experience. Highly disappointing and just plain appalling. Bottom line - DON'T GO and tell your friends/ enemies not to go!

Ps if you order a dish that tastes like crap, be prepared to be told by the manager that its your fault b/c you didnt read the menu or ask questions. If the menu had read seafood is not fresh and will taste every bit like its been sitting at the back door for a week..I would not have ordered it!

After hearing about Silk for awhile, my sister and I decided to give it a try. Walking into the restaurant, we were in awe by the beautiful design of the restaurant. It was very clean and the manager greeted us right away. For my meal, I ordered the Kobe burger. I would have to say it was the most juicy and flavorful burger I had ever tasted. I don't think I could go back to eating another burger after that. For dessert, we ordered the mango creme brulee. I loved it! Overall I had a great experience and I would definitely recommend Silk to my friends.

The manager was really nice. Our sever was nice - but not very knowledgable about the wines. It took him forever to bring our wine to us - then we finally got some water. The sushi rolls were oblong and falling apart. I've rolled better rolls at home. I'm writing this review in hopes that they'll speed up the servers and get somebody who can actually roll sushi. I like the place though - i'll be back and hopefully the sushi will be better.

The cocktail selections at Silk are amazing. On several occasions I've tried different drinks at Silk. Most recently, the Forbidden City Fruit Punch, Silk's "East Meets West" Sangria. I was told the secret ingredient is Pomegranate juice. It's unbelievably delicious, and packs quite a punch! The wine selections are even more amazing. Some types I had never heard of, for example Torrontes from Argentina or Viura from Spain. Obscure as they are, they seem perfectly suited for the cuisine. Many selections by the glass also!

I have eaten at Silk several times both for lunch and dinner and each meal has exceeded expectations. The fish dishes have wonderful robust flavors that you often dont see in many of Atlantas other fusion/Asian restaurants. However, the best find at Silk is the burger for lunch. The kobe beef burger, while not cheap, is the best burger not just in the city but anywhere. It comes on a traditional bun and is served with cheese and a marinade that is outstanding. Go out of your way to try this burger, it is that good.

My husband and I travel and have had some of the best meals in the U.S. But we both recommend Silk above the others. We went this weekend again and he had surf and turf and I had Kobe steak. Everything was fantastic. The apple dessert is to die for.

It sure was nice to look at, but of 2 of 10 orders in our group were wrong, 1 was just bad, the food (which took forever) was nothing spectacular, & the handwashing station was impossible. Just not worth it...

I dined at Silk last night with a group of 10 20 something girlfriends. We were looking forward to going to Silk because we heard good reviews; however, our experience was rather disappointing. The service was ok, but the food was very slow to come out and one of my friends actually had to get up to refill her own water. I had the Seared Tuna and it was good, but would have been better catergorized as cooked tuna, only a very small area of the middle was rare. It was not a good value for the price of the food, there are many other resturants in Atlanta that are much better.

Silk has a very NYC/L.A. type of vibe--late dinner reservations (ours were for 10:30pm, a sleek and modern space, and the patrons are mostly young and hot. The bar area is separated from the dining area by a low wall and draperies hanging from the ceiling. You can smoke in the bar area and besides the bar seating, there's an open space with couch seating and table. At dinner, our server was quick, helpful and pleasant, despite the fact that we had a large group. Everyone at our table enjoyed their entrees, which included a varied range: chicken, sushi, steak, seafood, etc. The wine list was excellent as well. The only element that was a little off-putting was the volume--it's a wide, open dining room with high ceilings and concrete floors, so when the room was filled, it got fairly loud.

This dining experience was well worth every dime spent. I started out with a large party and the hostess was more than understanding about it's continuing fluctuating numbers. I highly enjoyed the lobster bisque, Kobe steak, and the sushi was to die for. I will most certainly come back to Silk sometime in the near future. Service and food were both outstanding. The ambiance just added to the whole experience. A wonderful modern day restaurant in a comfortable atmosphere.

This place is a visual feast as well as a gustatory delight! Steaks like you've never had before because you can customize the flavor with special 'rubs'. I like the blue cheese one. My favorite sushi is called Out of Control. Its spicy tuna rolled in rice then topped with smoked eel with a drop of Hoisin sauce to sweeten. mmm.
