Atticus Ratings and Reviews

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.

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.
