Fine World Cuisine in Athens, Ohio

We are currently welcoming guests for dine-in Wednesday through Saturday from 5:30 to 9:00.   Click the Menu tab at the top of the page to see our regular menu, as these items are also available. We have a small but nice selection of beers and wines to accompany our food. 

RESERVATIONS ARE NOT ACCEPTED EXCEPT FOR PARTIES OF 7 OR MORE. (Please note that we've had a problem with the tiny minority of our patrons that tell us they have a party of 7 or more on our most busy nights, solely in order to reserve a table, then show up with a much smaller party. We reserve the right to cancel reservations in this rare but annoying instance.) 

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Covid, we have been doing lots of contactless carryout, and sometimes get jammed with phone orders right around 5-6 pm.  Keri begins taking orders for the evening by phone when she arrives around 2-3 pm, so if you leave a message before that, expect a callback after 3. Ordering early helps the kitchen staff to plan and prepare for your order, so when you can, please order early! (You may pick up at a time you choose, between  5:00 pm and 8:30 pm.) The number to call is the restaurant's land line: (740) 594-3800.   If it rings busy, we're fielding other calls or returning calls to those who have left a voicemail.  Please do leave a message and we'll return your call.

(Ordering early helps us with workflow in the kitchen and is always appreciated! DO leave a voicemail; we will call  you back in the order that calls are received.) You are welcome to pay by phone (use the restaurant number: 740-594-3800) and take advantage of our contactless pickup in the REAR of the restaurant.  To do this, please proceed in the direction of travel on South Congress Street. Don't turn left onto Washington Street... just pass it and then turn left to enter the parking lot behind the restaurant.  You will see  a big blue shelf unit on our rear patio, where we will place your bags of food as soon as they are ready. No need to call when picking up, unless there's a problem with your order.
