If you've ever stumped your server with a question regarding the menu, you probably weren't enjoying a meal at Woodfire Grill. In fact, there, the opposite is more likely. In-depth menu knowledge is a must for Woodfire's front-of-the-house staff, which is impressive considering the menu is subject to daily changes. Under the watchful eye of general manager Rick Blumberg, servers at Woodfire Grill are there when you need something and scarce when you don't. From the moment you walk in, and whether you're in the dining room or at the bar, you're always in someone's capable hands. And while you will most certainly leave Woodfire with a full stomach, don't be surprised if your appetite for culinary knowledge is satisfied, too. less...

Beauty and elegance congregate at NAM. This contemporary Vietnamese restaurant has a uniquely beautiful interior whose art celebrates the female form. The servers are immediate incarnations of that – gorgeous women in exotic garb who seem to drift through the dining room. The slender, mainly Asian staff may have you speechless, but don't fret – they're also helpful in describing menu items and, if asked, will give you their own (sometimes strong) opinions. We love women who aren't afraid to speak their minds – which are, we're sure, just as beautiful as their exteriors. less...

OK, we know THE NATIONAL is in Athens, and this is Best of Atlanta, but we love the waitstaff there so much we're asking that you bear with us. Led by Chris Luken, the National's servers manage to hit that perfect note of friendly service with formal underpinnings – timing, knowledge and hospitality are all as good as it gets. To prove the point that personality is a major factor in good service, waiters wear street clothes instead of uniforms, reminding us that behind every great dining experience is a real person, not a drone we can order around. less...

Quinones at Bacchanalia (Permanently Closed)

Gracious, warm, pitch-perfect without ever being stiff or too formal, and yet gracefully adept at the precise dance that truly top-level service requires. Eating here is a delightful education in charm.more...

At last, a reason for everyone to adopt a bisexual lifestyle — dining at APRES DIEM. The only thing that would improve the appearance of both genders of servers here is complete nudity. While you await your food — we recommend any of the daily specials or regular pastas — you’ll enjoy the taste of your fingernails, which you’ll be chewing as you watch the beautiful, exotic servers, going from table to table, gossiping to everyone in their throaty accents about how hot but unattainable they find you. less...

The DINING ROOM AT THE RITZ-CARLTON BUCKHEAD may be searching the globe for a new powerhouse chef to helm its kitchen, but that’s no reason to avoid a celebratory meal within its clubby cocoon. Maitre d’ Claude Guillaume and his near-clairvoyant staff haven’t gone anywhere. Their professional virtuosity lets you ease into an evening of engaging conversation with tablemates. This year the staff acquired an additional ace up its sleeve: 24-year-old sommelier Chantelle Grilhot, who knows as much about tending to customers as she does about wine. (P.S. The transitional kitchen is in the more-than-capable hands of ex-Bacchanalia and Seeger’s chef Daniel Porubiansky.) less...

Mostly young and male, relatively perky and corporately trained, neatly dressed in aprons and clean shirts, they exude the kind of confidence that sells humongous portions of four-cheese ravioli, fried calamari, roasted peppers, chopped salad, swordfish steak and whole chickens with garlic and rosemary.more...
Mostly young and male, relatively perky and corporately trained, neatly dressed in aprons and clean shirts, they exude the kind of confidence that sells humongous portions of four-cheese ravioli, fried calamari, roasted peppers, chopped salad, swordfish steak and whole chickens with garlic and rosemary. Drop a fork and they're there. Finish a glass of wine and ditto. And they smile, smile, smile. less...
