Atticus Ratings and Reviews
Went for their Mother's Day brunch at 1:30. Brunch menu served til 4, but they were already out of several items, really limiting options. Drinks were excellent, food was very good, service was really slow, but not as attentive as it should have been, especially considering the low number of customers at the time. Waiter kept excusing slow service by telling us how overwhelmed kitchen staff was--but don't know what this had to do with the slow & forgotten drink service. Party of 6; ordered charcuterie which came with 3 pieces of bread. Asked for more which seemed like a great challenge. ("I can put the order in, but I don't know how long it will take.") I would go back, but not for any occasion where a crowd might be expected.
I've enjoyed Atticus in the past, but sadly it seems to have gone downhill. I met friends for brunch yesterday and there were only two other occupied tables when we arrived during prime brunch time on a Sunday. A few others filled in after we sat, but not enough to warrant the slow, inattentive service. After being told they were out of grapefruit juice (there is a grocery store across the street) we saw the bartender pour our drinks, but then they sat there for at least 15 minutes until one of our party walked up to the bar to retrieve them. Our food did not arrive until a full hour after we originally sat, and after all of the other tables that arrived after us had already been served. It was fine when it did arrive, except that my dish was advertised with potatoes in the menu but was served with Brussels sprouts. I like them so did not mention it and was too hungry by then to argue, but a change like that should have been mentioned before it was delivered. One of my friend's over medium eggs was served with a broken yolk as well. All in all, a disappointing experience.
Atticus has a nice atmosphere, great food, and a nice wine list and drink menu. There was a problem with service the night we were there which I heard was unusual. It was specific to our waiter; the rest of the staff were really good. I would recommend this restaurant.
We started with a half dozen oysters for my husband and the smoked olves to share. Both were outstanding! I had the steak which was very good. Husband had the Duck Confit which he said was well seasoned but dry. We both loved the cocktails - Negroni for him and Hemingway for me. Followed by a glass of wine with dinner. We shared the key lime dessert which was very tiny but yummy. Our server was teriffic (I can't believe we forgot her name!!). All the staff working tables were very good. The acoustics in the main room make for a noisy environment and the 2 top table was small and very close to the one next to us which somewhat stymied intimate conversation. However, all things considered, we were happy with our evening.
Went for brunch on a Saturday and it was dead inside. Service was ok and our food came out after a table that came in 30 mins after us. Our food was delayed bc the kitchen "burned our biscuits" but I think our server forgot about us. He didn't even Comp our side or drinks and took forever to bring our bill.
Lunch menu was uninspired
Our server was very unfriendly and seemed annoyed and disinterested
Restaurant was very slow yet food prep took a long time
Will not go back for lunch
Not sure if I will go back for dinner
Too many other places to settle for mediocrity and poor service
My husband had to get up to track down a server to take drink order after no one came by for about 15 minutes after being seated. Two meals came out. Server didn't put order in for third meal. We were finished by the time 3rd meal finally arrived. Restraunt was nearly empty. Should have been busy at noon on a Sunday. No obvious reason for poor service. Food is good. Unfortunately this is second consecutive time with poor service.
The Brussels sprouts were wonderful and perfect portion for the 4 of us. We ordered another appetizer and for the life of me, I can't even remember what it was(not a good sign) and was barely enough for one person. I felt that it was the server's job to let us know that, so we're could have ordered more. We were all very pleased with the entrees so all and all, it was a a good night!
I've been here several times before and either have a great or bad experience. Unfortunately a new chef and a new server seemed to cause issues this time around. Service was slow, not very good, and the food was cold and not as listed on the menu. I've had good experiences here before, but after this last time I probably won't go back or recommend to friends anymore.
The decor and concept was cool - walking in the greeting was not great and overall wait staff was awkward and not very friendly. The food was just okay, nothing special. Fresh but not super flavorful, green chili on the breakfast burrito was barely there and was more like a soupy sauce then a green chili.
This was the first time we had been here and we will go back. It is kind of eclectic/ bohemian joint which we liked. The food was really quite good. We had the French onion soup and roasted and grilled olives appetizers followed by Crispy Duck Confit. That was all really yummy. We felt the duck was a little over priced but it was really good! We splurged and shared the Apple Bread Pudding because I am a bread pudding freak but I am picky about it! It was AMAZING!
It was a nice dinner!
Food was good. Just be sure to ask about portion sizes. The duck is a small leg, not much compared to the beef on the menu. The two men at the table who ordered the duck ended up finishing the other meals on the table, since they were still hungry. There just doesn't seem to be much consistency in size of the meals.
Every item on the menu had a bit of mystery to it, in a good way: interesting combinations of food, unusual descriptions, and fantastic taste. The staff was attentive, but not hovering. The ambiance is eclectic - tastefully done with rustic undertones. I would recommend it to anyone interested in a dining experience worth talking about.
Frustrating experience- available parking (good) and not crowded (Saturday noon), and a comfortable space. Excellent pork Benedict.
But.... only halfway through weekend brunch and several items on the menu were not available, service was excruciatingly slow (all staff completely absent from dining room for long stretches), and the waiter wouldn't speak above mumble once he did arrive.
One good dish does not a return visit make. We had looked forward to trying this place, but won't bother a trip back.
Atticus never disappoints. Brought my dad here for his 60th birthday and he loved it. They did have a table reserved for us with a special sign and even gave us 2 complimentary glasses of champagne to celebrate the occasion. Even though it was nice to have an area of the restaurant to ourselves to talk, etc. I did feel a little far away from the "atmosphere" of the restaurant as everyone else dining was located far on the other side of the establishment. Otherwise, food was delicious and fresh. Everything came out hot and our needs were tended to with utmost detail. Always love it here.
We stopped in on a Saturday evening as we'd heard nothing but good things but left saddened and disappointed. While it was restaurant week, there were only 2 of 5 entrees available and both were less than appetizing. Our waiter, who was obviously housing some wine while he waited on us, made things worse by vanishing more often than not.
I love trying new places but won't be giving this one another shot.
We have been here several times and each visit has been outstanding. The service is beyond exceptional and they truly go out of their way to ensure your experience is five-star. I cannot rave enough about the food, both during normal occasions and restaurant week. Everything was cooked to perfection, from the French onion soup and Brussels sprouts to the steak and mussels. Atticus has become, by far, one of my favorite Denver restaurants.
First night of Restaurant Week. We allowed ourselves 2 hours before a hockey game at DU. We were one of the first tables to be seated and one of the last to be served our food which all came at once and we had to eat more quickly than we would've liked. It appeared there were not enough servers or something wasn't going right in the kitchen. We had the chef's platter (cheese plate) and the first bread on the plate was frozen. The subsequent bread pieces received were toasty & warm. The wine was great. The pork shank was very tender and a nice blend of flavors. Our dining partners ordered the mussels which they said were overcooked, but they loved the brussel sprouts. We had dined here before and always enjoyed the experience. It was unfortunate that the service was not up to par this night. However, we appreciated the efforts the restaurant made to serve us and provide our salads free of charge.
My husband and I really like this place. It's a neighborhood gem! The cocktails and wine list are creative and you'll find great new Reds by the glass. The food is lovely - very happy. But the icing on the cake is impeccable service. Great job, Atticus! You've captured our attention and we will be back.
