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...

The tone of a restaurant, the feel of a room, and the service you receive are usually the doing of that restaurant’s general manager. And at Aria, ANDRES LOAIZA sets a perfect example — warmth complemented by knowledge and professionalism. Need a wine recommendation? Loaiza is helpful without the slightest hint of snootiness. Visit the restaurant once, and two years later he's likely to remember your face, name, what you ordered and how much you liked it. His unmatched attention to detail makes him a master practitioner at the art of true service. 490 E. Paces Ferry Road. 404-233-7673. www.aria-atl.com. 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...

That is so not hot. What is hot is the scruffy gaggle of servers and cooks at GRANT CENTRAL in East Atlanta. The tattoos, the dreadlocks, the sneers, the lopsided smiles, the crooked teeth, the spiky belts are all adorable, and even more so because the last thing they're going for is recognition of their hotness. Our hearts are aflutter. less...

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 gosh-wow handsome brothers who own THOMPSON BROTHERS BARBECUE take your order, chop the saucy pork and ring you up with flawless, heartfelt smiles. Although their addictive smoked bologna surely has its legions of male fans, this place is pure eye candy for the ladies. Photos of the charming brothers adorn the walls, providing fodder for countless fantasies. One Thompson brother stands ready by an Air Force plane, zipped into a flight suit; another, muscles rippling, commands the field in a UGA football match. Denzel hasn’t got a chance.
2445 Cobb Parkway, Smyrna. 770-818-9098.
