Wonderful, Great Place – This was a pleasant surprise. It's tucked away in a neighborhood and you have to intentionally want to go here. I found it online when I Googled "best seafood" in Atlanta. After seeing the pictures and reading the menu online made me want to go. I took my friend there for her birthday and it was the best food hands down. I was really surprised. Everything was well balanced, seafood was fresh and the price was reasonable. We ordered drinks, appetizers and main entrees shrimp and grits, and the lamb special for the day was to die for. It came to 86.06. If we could have dessert we would have... but we were so full. The service was good too. Our server was attentive but not too pushy. I recommend this place as one of my top 2009 treasured finds.
good food, small portions – Only quibble was the small portion size. I was hungry by the time I left. It was delicious the patio area is amazing, the cocktails good, and the service attentive. Parking not an issue with Valet
Too much hype and over priced for the quality! – My wife and I just got back from our Valentine's day dinner at Wahoo. As some other mentioned before, parking was tight but not an issue for us...we used valet. The restaurant itself was very nice in terms of decor. The hostess was very nice and helpful.
Now let's get to the bad side. We ordered two appetizers to start. My wife was disappointed in the quality of the sauce. It was a sad imitation of an authentic New Orleans style dish. I ordered the seafood soup as an appetizer. All of the seafood was way over done, dry and required extra seasoning. Moving on to the entries. My wife was swayed by our waiter to get one of their Valentine's special filet (more expensive) instead of a fish. I ordered their signature Wahoo. When we got our entries we we less than pleased. Her steak was medium-well to well-done but ordered it to be medium. Once again, this is a matter of preference but when we pointed this out to our waiter he insisted that this was their "medium" and did we want it to be "medium rare"?!? We sent it back and got another one pretty quickly. This time it was "medium" but not seasoned. My wife managed to doctor up the steak so we left this issue alone. I've had wahoo one other time but couldn't quiet remember if it was a firm or tender fish. That being said, I felt that the fish was very firm/chewy but seasoned well. By this time we were pretty disappointed and didn't want to chance on their dessert.
With all the hype from friends and the internet we really expected more out of the restaurant. For the price and quality I should have gone to Long Horn and probably would have had some money left over to catch a movie.
nice atmosphere – Not the easiest place to find unless you live in the area. The food was good, not the best, but still good. The dessert was awesome! The best part. The atmosphere is really nice & they have a great patio area. The parking isn't as bad as some suggested, but not much to choose from. They had valet as well. I would recommend if you are in in the area, but I wouldn't make a special trip just to go there.
Service was good.
Good...BUT--- – My wife and I were part of a group who tried Wahoo out on a Friday night. Sure enough, just like a number of reviewers mentioned, parking was tight, so we just parked across the street on the grass. No problem.
We had a very good waiter; the food was better than average (about on par with Longhorn Steakhouse), and the patio/outside seating was impressive (airy, well thought-out, really neat)-----BUT there were some things that really bothered a lot of us:
1--They won't separate checks for groups of six or more.
2--Group tip amount is 20%, whether you like the service or not.
3--One of us had brought a homemade cake for a birthday celebration, and they charged $10 for a 'cutting fee'! (even though we cut it ourselves and had paper plates for the occasion).
The food is a bit expensive for what you get, especially considering all the add-on fees. So beware. Oh, one more thing: if you can't find anywhere to park other than their own lot, you'll also pay for that, too.
Great seafood, excellent service – Aftrer visiting Wahoo on a Saturday night last week, my date and I were pleasantly suprised by the wonderful food along with the excellent service. The fisherman's stew was awesome and so was the pasta special, although there were only 4 shrimp in the meal. For the price and ambiance, Wahoo is a great place to enjoy a great meal along with fast customer service!
Excellent, flown in fresh seafood. Outdoor dining on the patio is a must...they recently enlarged it! – The restaurant has a great neighborhood feel, yet offers very upscale fare for the discerning palate. From the staff that greet you when you first walk in, to the ambiance that Wahoo has created, it just feels very warm and inviting. Chef's attention to detail is impeccable and the seafood is flown in fresh. His attention to detail shows in every plate. I always order whatever special they have for the evening. Go early and come hungry...the specials go quickly! The bar, near the entry way to the patio has a very welcoming feel to it and the bar staff and wait staff are very attentive to your needs and helpful in pairing your food with your drink of choice.
As for the outdoor dining patio, just wonderful. They somewhat recently expanded the patio and it is gorgeous.
Awesome brunch spot! – Awesome selection of down home and international delicacies on the brunch buffet and so reasonably priced! We were a large group so the buffet suited us well. A few of us ordered off the menu and it came out hot and prompt. The fish was fresh, and everything tasted great. Parking is a bit of a bear or you can valet. Relaxed, casual atmosphere and good service. We'll be back!
Wondeful – This is a local place for me and its great - been lots of times and the food and service is always great.
The patio at the back is lovely - I can't wait for spring!
Great Sunday Brunch – We visited on a sunday for brunch. Some people in our party had the buffett and others ordered from the menu. Everyone was pleased with their dishes. The variety on the buffett was a big winner. The bufett included everything from shrimp and grits to salmon with avocado. The service was attentive but not obtrusive. Definetly ask to be seated on the awesome patio in the back.
