Atticus, is a welcoming neighborhood spot. Our restaurant and bar is focused on warm hospitality and comfort. Serving up a community-inspired breakfast, lunch, cocktails and dinner. Our inventive American menu is designed around Colorado’s small producers, and complimented by a thoughtfully curated wine list and craft cocktails made with spirits from local independent distillers. At Atticus, we believe everyone has a story that can offer new perspective, and when people join for food and drink, companionship is at its best.

Atticus Ratings and Reviews
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.
We enjoyed everything about Atticus. We were warmly greeted when we arrived. It was their anniversary so we had a small celebration glass of champagne they provided. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the food and drinks. The dinner itself was outstanding - tasty, well presented, and a good value.
Always love it here. This was my second time and it was so fantastic. We told them we were celebrating our 2nd Anniversary and they truly went out of their way to make us feel special. They sat us near the fireplace for some quiet and cozy ambiance, checked on us all the time to make sure the food and everything was spectacular, and even gave us a comp-ed dessert for the celebration. The food is ALWAYS phenomenal and fresh and the place is always clean. Thoroughly enjoy the decor too. Really love it here!
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.
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...
