Our first visit to Floataway in a few years. I don't know why we've stayed away so long. Very good, professional service. Interesting menu and wine list. Everything we tried was excellent. We also love the atmosphere as it's quiet enough to have a conversation (something increasingly hard to find in Atlanta). We'll be going back soon.

Met friends out for dinner last night. Restaurant was not very busy, still service was painfully slow. We ordered Calamari, Margherita Pizza and Prosciutto for the table. Calamri was wonderful, the rest, mediocre. I ordered the Bronzino, others ordered chicken or pasta. While well-prepared, all were bland and un-memorable. The sourdough bread was by far, the most inspired thing on... More

This is a very good restaurant with excellent food. Location is a bit out of the way. There are definitely areas of the restaurant more desirable than others. When you walk in, the area to the right had light airy tables by the Windows. The main entrance hallway has tables with little to no atmosphere. There are two tables in... More

We've dined at Floataway three times and the food and service are consistently good. Not a top tier place, yet, but really good. They have a nice menu and good wine list. The only drawback is location. Going there you will wonder where the heck you are heading. When you see the gun range, keep going. It's worth the effort... More

Service, presentation, and atmosphere all make for a great evening with friends. But don't go hungry, small portions and all à la carte. Good news, the food is tasty and beautifully presented.

We had a big family dinner here and the food and the service were excellent. The lentil appetizer, the chicken liver appetizer, and the asparagus risotto were delicious. Dessert was sticky toffee pudding and butterscotch pudding, also delicious. The restaurant is divided up into several rooms, also very nicely decorated and even though there were a fair number of people... More

I went to Floataway cafe on a recommendation from a colleague. It is located in what appears to be repurposed warehouse. It's a little out of the way but had ample and free parking. Finding the entrance is a little tricky but well worth it. We had the mini crab cake for a starter... Delicious. I had the porterhouse porkchop... More

As other reviewers mentioned the restaurant wasn't crowded but that wasn't a deal-breaker for me. The service was attentive and the food so yummy. The grilled octopus was ok but the red snapper and butternut squash were outstanding. I ended with the warm toffee pudding and I almost skipped out of the restaurant from delight.
