Atlanta has taken its value as a food-forward city seriously, and has attracted a wealth of thoughtful, inventive, award-winning chefs.

Trying to find the best restaurant is a very hard thing to do, I've listed a few which I think would be considered as best place to dine with family and friends not only for the food, but for the service, the ambiance and the overall experience of eating there.

1 Bacchanalia
The 90-seat restaurant offers an unparalleled dining experience ideal for celebrating special occasions and for fueling foodie fodder.

2 Empire State South
The ambiance of beautiful, rustic-chic space combined with knowledgeable staff seeking to optimize your dining experience is where you want to be dining. The menu are simply amazing. Don't forget to order the "In Jars" appetizer .

3 Restaurant Eugene
An upscale farm-to-table eatery which utilize produce from local community farms guarantees all dishes are fresh and seasonal, and the menu changes daily.

4 Woodfire Grill
The rustic Buckhead eatery has continued its tradition of producing inventive, high-caliber food under sous chef Matt Weinstein's care. The grill is central to the restaurant's lodge-like dining room, so foodies can watch as Weinstein and his crew prepare dish after dish.

5 The Optimist
If you fancy seaside cuisine this definitely the place to go. Begin your meal with an artful appetizer and indulge in one of the craft cocktails.

6 No. 246
Located centrally in downtown Decatur the Smith Hanes-designed restaurant exudes sophisticated comfort with its warm wooden accents, dramatic windows overlooking Ponce, framed barnyard art and industrial-sized steel fans turning overhead.

7 Cakes & Ale
The restaurant is neither pub nor bakery. They produce a rotating menu of contemporary, seasonal, American-fusion plates.

8 Taqueria del Sol
The menu is mostly Mexican cuisine, but many of the tacos and sides feature cross-cultural flair. They also offer diners many inventive and delicious options for lunch and dinner.

9 Watershed on Peachtree

Is an ideal spot, with large colorful umbrellas, lush landscaping, and steps away from the buzz of Peachtree Street.

10 Miller Union

A well decorated, fancy restaurant with great food and service.
