Atlas Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

Unfortunately, the restaurant was entirely full at 6 PM. This taxed both the serving staff and the kitchen and resulted in a long delay for our meal. Management recognized the problem and "comped" our drinks. We shall try to make earlier reservations on Friday and Saturday nights.

The August 26 Atlas dinner was scheduled to celebrate the 88th birthday of a dear cousin. Other than my wife and I, the group of six were not Atlas regulars. All were blown-away by the excellence of the food and the attentiveness and professionalism of our server, James.
Our overall experience could not have been better.
A sincere thank you to the entire staff.

Three of us went to Atlas for dinner. Two of us had been there before and thought it would be a good time to return; the other one hadn't ever been there. All of us were very pleased with our drinks, our meals, the service, and the atmosphere. It's a very nice place to sit and talk over a fine dinner.

Atlas has been on our list to try for several years. The food was pretty good but not spectacular. Our server (Laura) was one of the worst we ever had: rude, no service skills and no charisma whatsoever. It's a real shame as all the other staff was very friendly. Perhaps she had a bad day but we would request a different section if we ever went back.
Nice restaurant for dinner. Unfortunate ...
Nice restaurant for dinner. Unfortunately my encrusted steak was overdone and the encrust soggy . Steak tasted as if it had been tenderized and was mushy. Others (3) did better with their dinners. Service was good and prompt. Servers should not pick up plates until all are done eating ( a universal complaint these days)
This was our first time there and will give them another try as we know the owners reputation is quite good and the steak may have been an aberration.

I had not been to Atlas for several years and was quite pleased with the food and service. Sadly it is a noisy atmosphere and with the tables so close together, private conversation is difficult. My friend from out of town was running late and the staff actually called me to see if I wanted to keep my reservation which was wonderfully accommodating.

The service is always pleasant. Gets crowded before opera and symphony so make reservations. It can be noisy. Because the food is always very good, we go there for birthdays. The atmosphere is pleasant, soft lighting, enough space between tables.

We were greeted and seated as soon as we arrived. The waiter was attentive but not overbearing. The food was excellent...mixed green salad, salmon and creme brule.
Fast becoming a favorite for us, especially before The Muny.

One of our favorite St. Louis restaurants. Food is consistently delicious. We all enjoyed the 3 course dinner. Caprese salads fresh and wonderful, veggie pasta was delicious as was sliced sirloin and creme brûlée. Love this little place

My husband and I frequent Atlas often. It is our go to place before the symphony. However, this last meal was disappointing. I ordered from the prix fixed menu. I received the wrong entree and the server made it seem an imposition to change it to the correct one. I kept the wrong entree since I was dining with a friend and did not want to delay dinner or make a scene. To make matters worse, the bleu cheese encrusted sirloin I was served, was grisly, tough, dry, and over cooked.
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.
