Atticus Ratings and Reviews
Great food, great service, great 80's music. There were only 3 tables the restaurant but somehow their entire parking lot was full so I am guessing it was not customers parked there. There really isn't any street parking within a block or so, so had to walk a bit.
Had the special New Years Eve pris fixe dinner. The big disappointment of th meal was the beef Wellington, which was served on a bed of purple mashed potatoes which read gray on the plate. Give that the meat was overdone, the dish was rather a big, gray, soggy mess. Fortunately, the rest of my meal ranged from acceptable to quote good, as did the meals of the others in my party.
Our first dinner at Atticus & we have no complaints. The food & service were both excellent! It was nice to eat at a restaurant that felt cozy & wasn't overly loud like so many restaurants seem to be these days. We had five people in our party, all with varying food tastes & we were all very happy with our meals. We'll definitely be back!
We have been here four times and have always been satisfied. Last night the food was good but the salmon and slider special were small portions. Both men that were with us went home still hungry. We did have appetizers and drinks. They were great. I had the pork and it was a generous portion and delicious. I felt a little guilty eating it in front of the men.
The food is ok, nothing to knock my socks off and being that I live in the neighborhood, I find the other related restaurants (Black Bird, Rosedale) have similar menus. On this particular night, the service was off. I mainly go here because it is convenient since I live in the neighborhood, not because it is great or unique. My friend that joined me had not been and really liked it. I've been a few times and find it fair.
Worst service I've ever had! No exaggeration here. I was entertaining two friends from out of town. After our order was botched, the waiter weakly apologized, blamed the kitchen and then continued to ignore us. We were VERY hungry yet only one cup of soup came out of the kitchen.
We were there a total of 3 hours! The manager came out and offered another weak apology and lame excuse. The food is only average---no reason to risk it!
Wonderful service and meal. The brussel sprouts (with Bacon) may be the best I️ ever had. I️ ordered the chef special (a chicken, duck, snail, over fried risotto contraption), and I️ absolutely loved loved loved it. Service was a little slow, but exceptional. Great “bang for the buck”.
This is the worst restaurant I have ever been to in my 51 years. The cheese plate had only 2 cheeses and everything but the cheeses was stale. The meat was disgusting.
My wife ordered Mussels. Despite the large shells the meat was almost microscopic and strange looking in that they were stringy. Instead of bringing bread as asked with the mussels they brought fries and no spoon which is important with Mussels.
The meat on my burger had a strange texture and after two bites was scared the meat had gone bad and was cooked anyway. Given how so much of the food appeared to be old and stale I wouldn't have been surprised.
After two bites we asked for the check and paid out. Server never asked if there was a problem. Either she didn't care or had heard this so much she is numb or both.
We couldn't get out of there fast enough. It's a shame as the place had a cool ambiance but when the food and service is this bad nothing can save it.
It's been awhile since a restaurant has been so disappointing. The service was terrible---they were down a server---but she was doing her best, while the kitchen was slow. Patrons were making that awkward eye contact where they were looking around wondering if everyone else's food was so slow. I don't know what took so long to heat up Sysco truck breakfast potatoes? We tried several dishes and not a single one was memorable. My shrimp and grits were the worst I've ever had, anywhere. The bacon was the best part of the other dishes. What made it even worse is that you were paying $12-16 for small portions and the ingredients were poor quality. Even with a coupon, there was no value. This may be close to our house, but my family won't be back.
The food was good, not great, but the service was worse than ever before. Our friends’ food came out 10 minutes before ours, and 2 meals were missing essential elements (our server had to check the menu to see that we were missing the bacon). Our check to 30 minutes to arrive after we finished eating.
We have been here many times, and the service has never been bad. Don’t know whether we will go back. Disappointing.
A friend and I love to go to Atticus. It's small and intimate, especially with the fire going. The waiters are great, and the food is always fabulous. Because it was my birthday, we each got a complimentary half glass of proseco and (shared -my choice!) a piece of flourless chocolate cake. I felt so spoiled!! Thank you Atticus!!!
After driving past Atticus numerous times and making a mental note to try it out, I finally bid on a gift card at a fundraiser and used it to take my husband out for dinner and a movie. We were greeted warmly and given a choice table (it was early). Wait staff were attentive but not overbearing. The food was fresh, mostly locally sourced and very good, especially the stuffed roasted red peppers! Portions were just right and the presentation artful without being pretentious. We will return to check out lunch and brunch.
First off, there was no drink menu on our table, we had to ask for one and it took the waiter about 10min to get it to us... this is with only four other occupied tables in the restaurant. The drinks came out and they were good. Our mussel appetizer was also good, but the waiter spilled the steaming broth in my lap when he took the bowl away. He said he would bring me a wet napkin to clean it up but never did, and didn't even mention it. I'm pretty sure he forgot as soon as he walked away and I ended up having to take a napkin off the table next to us. Our entrees were ok... they were plated nicely but seasoned poorly, so they were visually appealing but very bland. Definitely not worth over $20/entree... these would need to be closer to $15 for me not to feel ripped off. I got the pork shank entree, and it came out with two pieces of corn on the cob... I've never had corn on the cob at a nice sit-down restaurant. Maybe a BBQ joint, but not a place that passes itself off as a nice restaurant. At least BBQ joints give you a pick to jab into the corn so you don't have to pick up with your hands and eat like a savage, but not at Atticus. I literally couldn't figure out how to eat it so I just left it on the plate. This is a mediocre restaurant that is masquerading as a nice restaurant, and I felt pretty ripped off in terms of food quality and service. There are plenty of other restaurants in Denver in this price range that have great food and service, so I definitely won't be giving it another chance or recommending it to anyone
Always great food at reasonable prices. Nice atmosphere, although a little loud. Wait staff is always knowledgeable and attentive. It's our go-to restaurant when we want consistently well-conceived and prepared food at reasonable prices. Plus, they have fresh oysters, usually several different varieties.
