Perfect Trifecta: Food, Ambiance, & Service – As a group of four, we dined at Silk looking for a nice up-scale restaurant with good food. We were not disappointed...
As a chef of Chinese cuisine I appreciate how some people find fusion-style pan-Asian to be "sacrilege" to traditional dishes. Silk completely destroys that notion with their combination of high quality ingredients, fantastic flavors, and impeccable presentation. You also never feel shorted on the food. Whether it is the Tiger-class shrimp, sea scallops (I don't know where they were from - but they were about the largest I have ever seen), or cuts of fish or steak, they are always generous portions.
The ambiance is excellent because it is quiet enough to have a romantic evening for two, but also loud enough that you feel privacy - which makes it a good environment for larger groups to attend as well (you will not feel restrained from having lively conversation). The service is what you would expect for a restaurant of this caliber: very courteous, attentive, and helpful.
Appetizer Recommendations: Grilled Duck Gyoza (potstickers), Tom Yum Mussels, Beer-Battered Sea Bass.
Entree Recommendations: Thai-style seafood noodles (spicy!), Chilean Sea Bass (I blame Silk because I may now have a new favorite fish over Swordfish), and the Triple Filet (my favorite entree).
Excellent for Parties!! – I threw my girlfriend a surprise birthday party here and Anna and her stuff were absolutely phenomental. Anna was great about coming up with an excellent menu that worked for my proposed budget. The staff was great and helped pull off the surprise perfectly. I received rave reviews from our guests and the guest of honor on the food, the room, the staff. As critical as I can be, I could not have asked for anything more. Thanks so much.
I highly recommend Silk for private parties and I can't wait to go back and have a sit down dinner there very soon.
We are very happy to hear that you and your guests all had a wonderful time! We thank you for choosing Silk for your special event and if there is anything we can do for you in the future, please do not hesitate to ask!

GREAT SEAFOOD!!! – I LOVE sushi and seafood, and have had some of the best all over the country! However, I did not have sushi here so I can't comment on the sushi. However, I did have the salmon dish and jumbo shrimp and scallops and both those dishes were AMAZING! And the drinks are also very good. You've got to try the Lychee Martini :-)
Excellent Fusion Experience – Diner at Silk was one of the best experiences of my recent trip to Atlanta. The Chilean Sea Bass is one of the most exquisite fish dishes I've ever experienced. My wife had lamb that was expertly prepared and exceptionally flavorful. Even 'common' appetizers of lobster bisque and tempura fried oysters were uncommonly prepared demonstrating the chef's flair. The outstanding presentation and superb service, were topped off with a frosted chocolate mousse cake that was cold, firm, and deeply flavored with rich, raw cocoa.
My only knock was the restaurant was a bit loud.
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! – i love this restaurant!! not only is the food mouth watering and creative, the staff is very welcoming and professional. every dish i have tried has been delicious and you walk out of there satisfied! i only wish we were closer to the city so i could dine here more often! you have to try this place, it's the best asian fushion in atlanta!!!! you ll even be blown away by their dessert!
if you want to take a friend or a newly aquaintance out on a "date" i highly recommend doing a light lunch - their lunch specials are fantastic and very tasty! overall this restuarant is delicious, classy, and reasonably priced! you can't ask for anything more!
Just OK – Went for lunch. The dining room was less than half full. We had to wait to order for 10 minutes. Appetizers took 10 minutes to come out too. A little slow for weekday lunch - especially when they were not busy. The calamari was great - very good batter used. The mini Kobe burgers we ok - I would get something else if I went back. Overall, it lived up to what most of the real reviews described (not the fake 5 star reviews that are obviously an insider).
hmmmmm – just a japanese restaurant among the rest. nothing special. i finished my food but i was exremely hungry. the reviews are VERY exagerated. if you are a true sushi eater like i am, and you know the difference of good sushi and bad sushi, this is not a highly reccomended place. the service was good though!
Try the KOBE burger!!! – 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.
Unimpressed – Living not far from Silk, this is a restaurant I've been wanting to try for a while. My boyfriend and I went last night, and while the atmosphere and service was good, the food was less than satisfying. If you're looking for good sushi, this is not the place to go. Nakato is excellent and is not too far from Silk....if you're up for a longer drive, Circle Sushi in Roswell is also really good. The rolls we ordered were falling apart, and the entree was so covered in the sauce that accompanied it that it was totally unenjoyable. Overall, I would say this place is fine for the drinks/bar/atmosphere, but if you're looking for fine dining you won't find it here.
Good Value, great seabass – Four of us went to Silk on a Saturday evening. Because of the recent snow the place was empty. We had drinks at the bar. The Elena martini was great. The bartender was knowledgeable and friendly. We had a round private booth with drapes for the party and we loved it. I would recommend requesting it. The appetizers were really the highlight. We enjoyed the seabass, tempura oysters, and spring rolls. I wouldn't order the oysters again but the other two were amazing. We ordered three sushi rolls which were also delicious. I liked the fantastic and the kobe roll the best. We ordered two bottles of Sancerre and sparkling water. The whole bill for all four of us was only $200 ($240 after tip). We thought this was definitely worth the $$$ based on the excellent service, the fair value of the wine, and we were stuff when we left. The bathrooms are interesting as well. I like the communal sink. The restaurant was a smash with our guests.
