Atlanta Magazine critic Corby Kummer reviews Last Word, awarding the Old Fourth Ward restaurant a "good" rating of one star. Kummer says the tasty food could stand to venture more toward its Lebanese influences, but the restaurant has the makings of a neighborhood favorite:
For inspiration, Moussa took them to local Middle Eastern and north African restaurants, but says he ultimately let them run with their imaginations. So Lebanon appears as a lightly spiced thread through most of the dishes, which, alas, too often seem meh Med. ... But it's the character of the place-that pounding mallet and the pleasure the bartender takes in it, the owner and servers who ask if you need something else-that will make me want to come back. And come the summer bounty, so will some colorful food-ideally in the colors of the Lebanese flag.
