Lobster Fried Rice

This is my favorite restaurant ever! I recommend this restaurant to everyone who visits Atlanta. However, I'm disappointed in the host today, I witnessed her make a very snarky comment behind a guest back. I was completely shocked.

Lobster Wontons

Choosing one item to review is really unfair but this is a staple for us. We shard these lobster won tons with every visitor we have to our city if Atlanta. It's always awesome!

Pineapple Fried Rice

This is one of my favorite brunch (and dinner) spots... @poorcalvins . This #ATL staple specializes in Asian fusion cuisine and at Calvin's it's all about the SAUCE. But I tell ya, EVERYTHING on the menu is good... Beans, Greens, Potatoes, Tomatoes.. #YouNameIt . My go to though are the crab wontons, they're addicting (topped with caviar) and instill this warm sensation I can't quite name. Could this be love? Aside from the unique cuisine, delicious sauces, and tasty hand-crafted drinks, the other reason I love this place is because the worlds best server works here. Lola aka Sha-na-na is the heart of this place. If you are lucky enough the universe will work in your favor and you can experience all of her sha-na-na-ness in the "VIP" section... #brunchinbourgeoisiely #brunch #foodie

Devine is what I said when I took a spoonful of the dish in my mouth. This was my second time visiting this resturant and my husband's 3rd, since we stumbled upon this place 2 months ago. The watermelon salad was also delishious and the Poundcake is a sin. lol. We are forever customers to this place we love it. Thanks for the great food and services everytime.

This lobster fried rice was the best I've ever had of this dish anywhere. And then I had a lychee martini that was heavenly! Truly enjoyed this restaurant. Atlanta's best kept secret.

Prik King Fried Grouper

My husband introduced me to Poor Calvin's. And what a wonderful find! We have visited the restaurant a couple of times and each visit was amazing. The atmosphere is fun and lively, the staff exceptional. I don't think words can describe the food. Everything we have tried is a smashing success! My husband is sold on the lobster fried rice! I have told everyone I know to try out Poor Calvin's. They will go back again and again!

This savory and sweet dish is so worth getting! It's plenty of food and there is flavor in every bite. I took my leftovers home and my husband finished it up. We love Poor Calvins! Try the Lobster Fried Rice, Pad Thai and the Tom yum soup or the wontons.......Yum 😊

The chicken was very good. The season was on point. And it was so moist. The serving size was more than enough for one person. Our waiter was very prompt and efficient.

The curry tofu was AMAZING!! My meal came out very fresh within a timely manner. The seasonings were marvelous. The tofu was cooked to perfection. I loved the flavors in the sauce. It's such a pretty color too. Doesn't matter if you're a vegan or a meat eater, give this dish a shot!!!

Lobster Fried Rice

I have never been disappointed with any meal at Poor Calvins but if i had to pick a favorite it would be the lobster fried rice. Absolutely delicious and light. Full of flavor with a golden fried lobster tail to top it off!

Omg!!! This place is insanely good. I just moved to Atlanta from NYC and I've been looking for that elusive combination of amazing food that feels comforting and upscale at the same time. Add great quality, friendly and extremely good looking staff, and creative cocktails that don't feel too boozy... and you get it! Poor Calvin's hits all the spots. The wine list is small but includes all you need. And the check... what can I say other than: you bet I'll be back

Lobster Fried Rice

Poor Calvin's is my favorite restaurant in Atlanta! I've never had a bad meal here. EVERYTHING is always delicious and prepared and flavored so well. The drinks are delicious. The dessert is poppin! Even their lunch menu is hittin! Lol! My favorite dish is the Lobster Fried Rice! I literally dream about eating it lol! The service has always been top notch as well! Here are a few tips: Always RSVP! If you have a larger crowd (over 6), this may not be the spot for you. This restaurant is intimate (small). The parking lot is also small; however, valet is available (sometimes). There is also street parking nearby.

Fried Chicken

I have never tasted anything so perfect in my life. Poor Calvin's fried chicken gives me the chills and makes me smile from ear to ear. If it's possible to have a food orgasm, I have achieved multiple glorious climaxes while eating Poor Calvin's fried chicken. It's served with lobster macaroni and cheese and just when I think I can't eat another bite, I manage to devour every last morsel of delightful delicious crispy creamy perfection.
