What’s the Most Expensive Restaurant in Atlanta? (2023)

I was doing some research on our grand city yesterday, and I noticed that hundreds of hundreds of people a month ask Google the question, “What’s the most expensive restaurant in Atlanta?” I have to admit, I was intrigued by the answers…and I need to share.

Georgia is home to some fantastic dining experiences, perfect for any special occasion meal. If you’re looking for some of the best fine dining establishments in Atlanta, we’ve got them!

Here are some of the most expensive restaurants in Atlanta right now.

Haute Living names St Cecilia as most expensive, Ford Fry’s Buckhead restaurant focusing on European coastal cuisine. Seafood and pasta lovers in particular will love this awesome restaurant.

Overwhelmingly though, most publications give the title to Bacchanalia – their four course, prix fixe menu runs $95 per person.

Chefs/Owners Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison created this Atlanta staple in 1993. All ingredients at this contemporary American eatery are organic, and most come from their own personal farm. You’ll find delicious items like a Foie Gras Terrine, lamb and duck dishes, and caviar service.


Other impressive restaurants of note? Read on!

Umi – also in Buckhead – is run by Sushi master Fuyuhiko Ito. I can attest that every bite of this menu is worth any price. It’s one of my favorite treats.

Bones has reportedly been Atlanta’s most expensive steakhouse, but Marcel is gaining traction in this area. Also a Ford Fry establishment. The elegant  “man-cave” textiles here are exceptionally warm and charming.

You’ll find items like a Bone-in Filet Monsieur or a dry aged ribeye, Côte de Boeuf, in addition to other main courses like Lobster Risotto and Veal Parmesan.

Empire State South, owned by James Beard award-winning chef Hugh Acheson, offers a delicious 4 course tasting menu and “snackies” at their bar.

Named “One of the Best Restaurants of the Year” by GQ Magazine and Esquire, King + Duke is another Ford Fry establishment that focuses on cooking food the way it used to be done — over an open fire. This Buckhead restaurant serves seasonal food that’s a step above the rest.


Beyond Atlanta?

Savannah boasts Elizabeth on 37th as their most expensive cuisine, at $90 per person for 7 courses of delicious indulgence.

And the most expensive in the US? It’s in New York. A unique sushi experience called Masa. Expect to pay $595 per person for the tasting menu. And according to the beloved Anthony Bourdain, it is worth it.


What type of food is Atlanta best known for?

Atlanta is best known for Southern food — like fried chicken — and BBQ. You’ll also find plenty of restaurants serving international foods off Buford Highway. These foods aren’t expensive, but they are delicious!

What is the most expensive restaurant in the world?

According to En Vols, Sublimotion in Ibiza is the most expensive restaurant in the world. The average per person price to eat there is $2,400!

What are some more Atlanta restaurants that are worth the splurge?

Other Atlanta restaurants that are considered worth the splurge are The Alden, Atlas, Chops Lobster Bar, Gunshow, Keith Rathbun Steak, Lazy Betty, and Lucian Books & Wine. You won’t go wrong with any of these Atlanta favs!
