Atlas Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Having Atlas within walking distance of ...
Having Atlas within walking distance of my front door is a luxury. It's special enough for an occasion, casual enough to make me a regular. The menu is diverse, the food always well prepared. I have many personal favorites, from the piccolo fritto to the chicken piccata. The pate makes a great supper and the pana cotta a not-too-sweet finish. Service is always friendly and capable. What's not to love?

After dining at Atlas repeatedly for the last few years, we were very disappointed with the time we had to wait to order drinks and also for our food to arrive. The last couple of times we have been there have been disappointing. Once the food was mediocre and this last time the slowness of the kitchen was unacceptable. Our waitress was very nice and did a good job but the kitchen was not putting out the food.
One of our party told the waitress that although he didn't blame her, he wouldn't be returning to dine there again.
Actually, the food was outstanding, but the wait time was not worth it. It will be quite a while before we return - if ever. It is such a shame because we have generally enjoyed dining at Atlas over the years.

We had the gnocchi for an appetizer and it was VERY good! My wife had the lobster ravioli and she loved it. I had the strip steak and it was ok. The quality of the beef was ok but the red wine reduction seemed to smother the steak instead of compliment it. I'd definitely go back though. I've seen reviews that the service at times wasn't the best but we had a different experience. The wait staff was very attentive and polite. We really enjoyed our experience at Atlas!

Excellent food and service. Menu was broad enough to appeal to most without too many choices. Presentation of both appetizers and meal was very well done. Because the menu tended French I expected small serving sizes but was pleasantly surprised more than adequate servings. Wine menu was also above average.

Bistro feel with efficient and friendly service and enjoyable meal. Featured shrimp dish was delicious. I am particular about rack of lamb and my meal was spot on. Exact temperature I requested and the ratatouille was quite good as well.

My friend and I both ordered the fish special, grilled flounder, plus a starter salad and glass of Chardonnay. The fish was perfectly grilled and so delicious. Not many chefs can produce such a marvelous finish to a fish so delicate as flounder.
My first visit back to Atlas since its re-opening.

This is and continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in STL. Best mussel in town. You can find it in the appetizer menu. Trout was awesome as well. As far as the house cocktails go try French 75 or The Atlas Manhattan. Will be back soon.
Escellent food, Noisy atmosphere
The food was excellent attested to over three different entrees by four people. The noise level was horrendous thanks to a very large group of individuals that appeared to have been imbibing before arrival. The service was marginal and inattentive. The bill contained errors and, I must say, it is the first time I have been charged $2.50 for three blue cheese olives in a "dry" martini that the mixologist must have thought "dry" meant extra volume of dry vermouth and half the gin.
Good food, Service Could Have Been Better
We just didn't get good service. It wasn't really any one person's fault, but we didn't receive everything we ordered and what we did get took long enough to make us late to our next appointment. I'm sure others have had good experiences though.
Our meal at Atlas was nothing special. We have dined here previously and always had a great meal. It was probably what we choose which was the Lamb Ragoo and the Sirloin. Also our server seemed to have many tables. Our wait time for food was also longer than we have waited before.
A date with friends
We love Atlas. The food, service and ambience remind me of a European gem. It was a rainy night when we visited. Hail had made some diners late. For the first time I didn't think my meal was as good as usual. The meatballs were dry. The sauce was thick. This is the only time I have been disappointed.
Once Great, Now Good...
I used to live in the neighborhood, and Atlas was always a great place to take friends to dinner. For my wife's birthday, we decided to revisit our old haunt. It was still good, but not as good as we remember. We were surprised to see that the menu hasn't really changed much from 6 years ago. That said, the food was still good, and we will definitely be returning again soon.
This was my first visit to Atlas and wha ...
This was my first visit to Atlas and what a surprise gem in a fantastic neighborhood. I tried the prix fixe menu (what a steal!). The orange carrot soup (with just a touch of ginger), the salmon and the vanilla bean Panna cotta were exquisite. Perfectly prepared, the flavors were well balanced and remarkable and the textures were very much an adventure for the tongue. Well done, Atlas. Well done.
Quicky before an event
We only had 45 minutes before we had to leave for an event. The waiter helped my friend with the menu because she is gluten free. He had the meal out in record time but we did not feel rushed. Waiter was attentive but not pushy. The soup of the day was excellent, the tuna carpaccio was great, and the crème brule delicious.
Best Manhattan & good service
Best Manhattan I have ever had! Remembered it for days!
Dining partner was running late and we had limited time. She asked that I order for her. Menu did not have exactly what she was looking for, but waiter suggested a substitute that worked perfectly.

A hidden gem. Barely noticeable as you pass by, this restaurant has much to offer and at a very affordable price. The service was friendly and the food was fantastic. Favorite dishes included the bread pudding appetizer and the panna cotta for dessert. Ahi tuna was good and the meatballs were fresh and flavorful. Servings were generous but not over the top.
Little Gem just north of Forest Park
My husband and I had a delicious romantic dinner at Atlas on a Saturday night. We had reservations, which was fortunate, as it was full! The service was wonderful (coat check!) and the wine was very good. The tuna tartare appetizer was amazing. My only regret is that we do not live in St. Louis so it will be a long while before we get back.

First visit in many years. Server was terrific. Food was very good, though over salted. Table for two was very small and the restaurant was not busy (midweek). It would have been better to seat us at a 4-top (given the petite dimensions of the table for two) and away from the kitchen.
Still, I would return and just ask for a restrained hand with salt.

I was disappointed Sat. night. My duck came out warm and underdone. The polenta was cold in some places and just warm in others. If this had been my first time at the restaurant I may not have come back. It was a rare occurrence, but still unfortunate.
Delicious Nouveau American Cuisine
Atlas is a wonderful, urban neighborhood spot. My husband and I are perhaps a bit spoiled, as we live around the corner from it -- though sadly we don't stop in nearly as often as we should. The food is less French than it once was, but it is still very very good nouveau American. Everything we tasted, from the mussels to the beet salad to the lamb shank to the delicious dessert, was superb. Service was fantastic and, for a Saturday night, it wasn't as crowded as it might have been. Recommend for special occasions or dates.
Great Neighborhood Restaurant
Excellent restaurant. My friend who lives in the neighborhood recommended this place. Now I am the one who recommends it to all my friends. Took 2 friends last Sat night and now they are converts. And they are willing to drive 65 miles just to go back and eat there. Great food, excellent service. Great place to eat and visit with friends.
Great dining experience
Party of 3 celebrating a birthday. We had to wait for our table, even with a reservation. Service at bar was a little lax while we waited, but host was excellent at keeping us posted about table availability. Waitress was very helpful and efficient. Food was excellent. Am anxious to return to try other dishes.
