Twelve Eighty - Inspired Dining Ratings and Reviews
1280 was an excellent restaurant for our pre-concert dining. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. The cheese board appetizer was especially good. The menu offered enough options to present several alternatives that we liked. The value was exceptional: and the food was prepared to perfection. I would recommend this restaurant to my friends for pre-concert dining or for a casual dinner in the Midtown area.
Had a leisurely dinner before a concert. The staff was uniformly friendly and attentive. Because the reservation time available was earlier than we really wanted, we took our time over the menu, appetizers, etc. We never felt like we were rushed, despite taking our time. The menu was varied and the food uniformly well prepared and tasty.
I can highly recommend.
The location is perfect for a meal before or following activities at The High Museum, Colony Square, or even Midtown. Our server "Romulus" was extremely attentive as my wife and I were the first ones to arrive in the restaurant portion of Table 1280. As the restaurant began to fill, Romulus continued to provide excellent service until he became a bit taxed around 7:30pm by serving perhaps 7 or 8 tables at once. Also very high marks for using locally sourced food as much as possible!!
The most disappointing let-down was the light seasoning on the food. We like food with a kick and the grilled salmon, although a good presentation, greatly lacked what we desired. My "Woodruff Burger" was satisfying and fall-apart tender, a sign to me that it was freshly ground, but still light on the seasonings. But with roots in Texas, perhaps we like our food more spicy than the average clientele of Table 1280. Also, the menu is very limited.
And we end with something to make you smile. The staff person we assumed was the maître d' made a comment about our left overs not being properly bagged. We told him no worries, it was not a problem. He proceeded to bag our food and then tossed in the after dinner mints, literally he tossed them into the bag, with a flair lol.
Overall, I would rate Table 1280 a B-. Excellent and very friendly wait staff, but the food is not worth driving from OTP (outside the perimeter).
My salad was served with a hair in it. It was quickly replaced, but did not inspire confidence. We have been regulars at the Woodruff Arts Center for more than 15 years and have only eaten at the restaurant 2 or 3 times. It's experiences like this that remind us why.
My review is a little mixed. The ambience is great and the proximity to the orchestra is unbeatable. We were initially surprised by angry patron, who were saying very rude and disrespectful things to the waitress. The situation clearly caused the waitress to be a little anxious. The manager came over and Defused the situation with a great deal of professionalism. However, I did understand The concern of the patron, despite her rudeness. The staff number was significantly too small to take care of occupied tables. We waited for 20 or 30 minutes to actually take our order. Because of the time that it took and our concern that they could not complete the food on time to get to the show, we got salads and a flatbread. I would classify them as OK, but not worth the cost that we paid. So, A+ for ambience, A for professionalism, C for food, B- for service.
The only reason for my 4 Star rating regarding "Ambiance" was because of the noise level, coming from outside the restaurant. Yes, it was noisy inside, but we were there for a pre-theater dinner as were most of the other patrons. Excellent food and service! Shaun was FANTASTIC!!
The food was really tasty, but service was slow and not attentive. The bartender could use a refresher course in the art of working versus flirting with diners at the bar. Perhaps such behavior is fine on a slow night, but not when the tables are full. As they have been in past visits, David and Timothy are warm, friendly, and efficient; they are definitely assets to 1280.
This restaurant is fabulous for before the symphony, since it is so conveniently located. Being included in Open Table makes it extremely easy to make a reservation. The menu offers a variety of options to satisfy even the pickiest eater. All of the sides are scrumptious and make it difficult to select just one or two. The servers are pleasant and most professional.
I have visited the High Museum many times but had never made it to Twelve Eighty. a few friends and I were goign to be at the Friday Night Jazz Festival at the High so we tought we'd make a whole evening of it.
It was PERFECT. We did 2 exhibits at the museum- popped downstairs for dinner- adn finished with a few more exhibits before the night was over.
Our server McKayla was delightful and helped us ecah pick something delicious (I had the Poke with a side of grilled corn and it was DELICIOUS!) We split a bottle of wine and all left full and happy. Would highly recommend!
Had a lovely dinner before a performance of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Was lovely as always. The service was attentive, but the noise level was louder than I would have preferred to due fairly large group in the bar area. I recommend the calamari, it was delicious.
This restaurant is conveniently located at Symphony Hall, making it a nice, upscale place to have dinner beforehand. There are some dishes that are just consistently outstanding - the shrimp and fried green tomato appetizer, the salads, the beef, and the shrimp/scallops over grits. However, we have yet to find a good variety of excellent desserts - the creme brulee is good and an occasional molten chocolate cake is good. The other cake based desserts are routinely dry and somewhat flavorless. One of us had the pan fried grouper the other night, a special, and it was both over salted and slightly underdone. In addition, the risotto had a tomato broth that was not particularly good. We wouldn't order that again.
The service is outstanding. Hands down.
As an early Mothers Day celebration, we enjoyed dinner at Table 1280 before an artistic ASO performance of the Gluck opera Orpheus and Eurydice. The new menu at Table 1280 is a delight. We enjoyed the creative chicken stack and (special of the day) grouper with risotto entries, capped off with desert of French style cafe espress accompanied with chocolate pot de creme and creme Brûlé. The service was prompt, cordial, and accurate. We were seated in the small room near the bar, with a view across the Woodruff plaza. Overall, a wonderful way to start a perfect evening.
I absolutely love this restaurant for meals prior to a performance at the Alliance Theater, the Symphony or a visit to the High Museum.
The food is original, not exorbitant and the service is always with a smile (love you, Erica)
Will be there again in two weeks. Looking forward to it already.
