Atticus Ratings and Reviews
Gosh, where to start. Our recent dining ...
Gosh, where to start. Our recent dining experience was a train wreck. We went in for brunch, and when we sat down, our waiter told us that more than half of the menu items could not be prepared (guess we should have known then to leave). Ok, that happens sometimes, I suppose. We order two of the remaining entrees, the Breakfast Biscuit Sandwich and the Countryman. Half an hour later, our entrees arrive and we notice immediately the enormous heap of steaming breakfast potatoes. Unfortunately, the rest of the food items were cold. The Countryman came with two bacon strips that can only be described as charcoal; they were completely inedible. My husband requested fresh bacon, which was replaced with bacon of the same charcoal texture, only hot. He still couldn't eat it. The biscuit tasted as though they had forgotten the main ingredient - butter - and it did not come with house-made jam as advertised. My husband requested jam and was brought apple sauce. As for the Breakfast Biscuit Sandwich, the bacon was also inedible and the chicken was so thin it was overpowered by the flavorless biscuit. There were no cheddar or pickles, as advertised. We tried eating just the breakfast potatoes, which were at least fresh and hot, but we tired of those quickly. Overall, a very disappointing dining experience, and unfortunately not our first negative experience with the restaurant. They really need to work on improving the consistency of their brunch.

Unfortunately we had a very poor experience. Great appetizer. Main entree served cold! Sent it back. By the time it came back out my husband had finished his meal and my entree was brought back out cold again! The waitress was very apologetic. She did comp my drinks and of course the entree. We won't go back.

Very nice restaurant. Went at 7:30 PM on a Tuesday; a couple other tables were packed but it wasn't too noisy. When it was clear we were going to stay awhile chatting after dessert, they kindly offered us some decaf coffee and let us stay 'til after 11 PM-ish when they were closing.

We made a reservation for Christmas Eve dinner. On Christmas Eve they offer a special three course meal with different options. Everyone in our party was extreamly impressed with the food, drinks, presentation, and ambiance. I would recommend this place to anyone. Very happy we chose this place for our special occasion dinner.

The food was delicious! Unfortunately, we did have to wait 25 minutes to be seated despite our reservation. Our server, though very kind, was not very attentive and did not bring water or coffee as we requested/ordered. For the price, I would love a bit more attentiveness. We will consider giving it another shot.

It is a great venue. We liked the eclectic but cozy feel. Great food. The duck Condit was exquisite. The salmon was cooked perfectly. Our guests ordered the Brussel sprouts and two vegan dishes that they raved about. We will be back!

I have never been disappointed at Atticus. The menu is creative and delicious with the plates fully realized with sauce and accompaniments. The staff is friendly and informed and will find out all you need to know regarding the wine list and menu. I need to go here more often.

I had no idea what to expect, having never been there and it was just not obtrusive on the street. What a pleasant experience. Excellent food, the brussel sprouts that you hated as a kid, are so scrumptiously yummy, I can't wait to go back. All four of our dinners were excellent, not a scrap left on the plates...Very good service and I will back with some other friends at my soonest opportunity...

We were gathering at Atticus for a friend's moving away dinner. The staff was attentive, but did not try and rush us. The food was absolutely delicious, even for picky vegetarian and gluten free diners (myself). The wine selection was nice and the atmosphere is cozy. It was the perfect choice.

Took our daughter here as a treat, she'd had a hard week at work. We had the brunch (huevos rancheros, rocky mountain biscuit, and breakfast biscuit sandwich). All were delicious! The pitcher of mimosas wasn't very strong, we ordered separate glasses of Prosecco to add to them.

In summary, the starters were good, the main and dessert were bad, and the timing of the courses were completely off. We told the waiter we needed to leave at 6:30 when we ordered at 5:15. We ordered 2 courses. The brussel sprouts and salmon tartar were fine but the main course paella came before we had barely started on the apps and it was only 5:50 so no rush. They took it back and waited for us to finish. Then they brought the same paella back out but now it was cold and didn't taste good. They offered a free dessert but not the paella for free. So we got the apple tartan which barely had apples and also wasn't good. I wouldn't go back.

This experience was completely different from the other two times we have gone to this restaurant. My mother in law's food came out cold, we had to ask for little plates to eat our appetizers on. And the restaurant was extremely loud.

I ordered the risotto and it was absolutely wonderful. My husband ordered the steak and said it was good, but overdone. Our guests shared the salmon and the surf and turf and they enjoyed both dishes. Our server was friendly and attentive but the food took a bit long to come out. But overall we very much enjoyed our dinner here and we will definitely be back!

The food is just average
Serving sizes were a bit off
Huge serving of Brussels Sprouts, way too much for even 2 people
Salmon appetizer sounded great and presentation was nice but not much flavor
Mussels had a TON of garlic, overwhelming really. Not enough broth
Fries were great
The menu is very interesting. I wouldn' ...
The menu is very interesting. I wouldn't necessarily say it is kid-friendly, as the mac-n-cheese is pretty gourmet and my little 2-year-old would have none of it! We had the risotto, which was outstanding - and the paella, which was a bit dry and certainly not the stand-out. Would definitely try it again.

Went to brunch with family and had a great meal - others that I was with said there meals were okay. Service was slow as we were one of the only two tables in there. One meal came out about 15 minutes after everyone else. I would say okay experience overall.

Started with cocktails, tuna tartare and the chef's board. Drinks took forever, and arrived in three separate trips. Cheese selection was uninspired and boring (smoked gouda and cheddar? Really?) and the tuna arrived missing part of the dish.
They were out of the duck confit, which we were not told until two people in our party tried ordering it.
Entrees arrived and three of them were cold. They were cooked well, but had clearly been sitting around for a while.
Our server knocked 15% off for the cold food, but we still felt we had paid way too much for what we got.

Lunch at Atticus was lovely. There were not alot of folks so we were able to receive the "royal treatment". The Brussel Spouts were fantastic - not over seasoned and quite a generous portion for us to share. All entrees were very, very good. Beer on tap - great selection and excellent. Our server was knowledgeable and excellent - did not hover but was always there when we needed her. My one complaint would be that I'd like a few more choices on the menu. We will return.

Went for Sunday brunch. Made reservation ahead of time and table was ready when I arrived. Waiter was very polite and gave us time to look over menu (because we were distracted talking). Food was delicious but took a while for it to come out. I ordered huevos rancheros and friend got the French Toast. Overall a pleasant experience and will go back.

4th visit and very disappointed. We had mussels to start and my wife had steak and I had the cauliflower steak. Everything was just blah, which is very, very different from our prior visits. Previously, I had had some of the best duck in a long time. Not on the menu this time. Mussels were overcooked and borderline rubbery. Drinks were very good. Place was only 1/3 full on a Saturday at 8 pm, so maybe the people have voted with their feet.
