I decided on Top Flr out of all the restaurants in Atlanta I could've chosen for my birthday. I was tempted to relive my amazing experience at Canoe from the year before, but curiosity won out and I went for something new. After checking out the reviews on rateclubs about this place being romantic, I thought I'd give it a try. Canoe would have been a much better choice. Not that I hated Top Flr--I just didn't love the scratched up plates and the overall dinginess of the place. The waitstaff were dressed in plaid shirts and jeans. Not knocking it, but it definitely wasn't what I expected and hoped for on my birthday. I don't mind the modern, laid-back feel, but when it comes at the expense of sleekness and sophistication, then I wonder what all the fuss is about. Even though the environment didn't impress me, the food did. The hummus I had for an appetizer was nothing out of the ordinary, but the scallops and sweet potato puree were divine. I literally cleaned my plate. There was a lengthy turnaround on my entree order, so the waiter gave us one dessert on the house. I chose the lemon pound cake with berries which was really yummy. I also really enjoyed the size of the portions offered. I didn't feel overwhelmed by the food in front of me, but I didn't feel cheated either. Definitely didn't want to leave my birthday dinner feeling fat. I regret that I didn't come here when it was dark out. It probably would have made the scene slightly more romantic, and maybe the design, furniture and plateware flaws wouldn't have been so noticeable. I don't think I'll be curious enough to come back and find out, but at least I don't have to wonder about the food.

I just saw Cornelius play here a couple nights ago and it seemed like a really cool place. Maybe I shouldn't judge the crowd based on who was there for this concert, but everyone was chill and happy to be there. i thought the sound was great. However, five bucks for a coke is a bit much, I thought. Even for NYC.
