Twelve Eighty - Inspired Dining fka Table 1280 Ratings and Reviews

We enjoyed a wonderful meal prior to attending the Atlanta Symphony. Could not have asked for better food. Service was spotty, but it was a full house so it was expected. The appetizer (three "dips" with pita) was exceptional and I hope it stays on the menu. (I don't remember it being on the menu the last time we dined (last month).
I look forward to dining at 1280 prior to all my symphony dates. I love the convenience, atmosphere and friendliness of the staff.

I like the location of Table 1280 - right next door to the Alliance Theater. It makes it so nice to enjoy a lovely diner without feeling rushed. We enjoyed the "designer" trip dip was good, especially the pimento cheese, but we needed to ask for additional pita chips. The Twelve Eighty Peachtree salad with added chicken was delicious and was the Woodruff burger. One downside was that we were seated in the bar area while seating was available in both of the other 2 rooms - it was a bit noisy.

Great waitress, service, food and drinks but the restaurant is very open and very loud if busy. We went before Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and had a hard time hearing each other with the noisy crowd. Convenient dinner spot for ASO dining.

We dined again pre-Symphony. This time we had the flatbread of the day and the fried green tomato and shrimp Napolean appetizer. We had the special Chilean Sea Bass entree which was perfectly cooked and accompanied with a butternut squash ravioli and green beans. A mild sauce accented with smoked paprika made the dish a unique treat. We relied on our old standby, creme brulee with fruit for dessert. look forward to trying more of the Fall menu appetizers and entrees again soon.

We were delayed by the usual bad traffic in Atlanta on a week night, and arrived 30 minutes late. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us so we could make it to the symphony on time. I expect that they have considerable experience doing that. They recommended a great main course dish that could be served quickly. We had a nice meal and a glass of wine and still arrived at the symphony on time.

Seated in the bar area and found it very loud and noisy--very hard to talk with other couple with us. Other dining rooms have been more enjoyable. Some menu changes were not as good as original items (scallops). Very convenient for theatre & symphony attendance.

The greater was overly intrusive and completely unhelpful. I mentioned my food allergies and he said I was in the computer and they had me covered. I mentioned them again to the guy who seated me and to the waitress when I ordered. They still brought my dish with mushrooms, to which I am allergic and they had to take it back and bring a new dish. The restaurant was not full - the room we were in only had a few tables occupied. Service was very slow and we barely made it to the theatre. I cannot imagine dining here if you don't have a performance at the Arts Center to attend!

We were pleasantly surprised to discover how nice this restaurant was. The food was very good and the server very nice. We had a nice bottle of chardonnay from their limited but decent wine list. We would definitely go back the next time we are at the symphony or Alliance theater.

What a delight! The lovely open dining room enhances the beautifully prepared meal. We had two fish entrees, both were perfectly prepared and served with sides which were a perfect complement. The wait staff and the kitchen got our orders to us efficiently and at the perfect temperature. We savored every bite and walked over to Symphony Hall for a concert. Prices are very reasonable, actually a bargain for this quality. The room is somewhat noisy, really the only downside.

They were obviously way understaffed for a pre-concert meal. Everyone there - the hosts, the one bartender, and the servers were frazzled. We waited 20 minutes for our drinks at the bar, and once we got our reserved table, we could not get water or bread until after meal was served - had to ask for it 3 times. But the food was very good.

We made dinner reservations before a concert at Symphony Hall because we wanted to be close to the performance venue. The menu was excellent and very reasonable for the high quality of the dishes, though I would budget it under "special occasion." We had a really easy time with parking and getting seated, and the entire evening was delightful.

Conveniently sited for the Atlanta Symphony Hall and the other Woodruff Art Center venues. Quick friendly service, great food (fine dining Modern American), extensive wine list, convenient location – this is a perfect place for dinner before a show. The high ceilinged room with crisp white walls and a huge wall of glass to the outside does bounce sound about, so it is not an intimate dining experience. Advance booking strongly advised if this is a pre-show dinner – strangely there were no reservations available on-line for several days prior to our mid-week visit, but lots of available space suddenly appeared on the day.

We had a great meal for three with the Fall menu. I had a soup of the day, a wonderful Italian wedding soup. Our entrees were the duck, grilled Chicken and salmon selections. All were good. We shared a side of sauteed spinach. Side veggies are new for us on the menu. Look forward to next time.

Wonderful place to eat before attending the theatre. Food was good, service was good. Portions are not large, which I like. Only one snag , we ordered desert & coffee. Both were excellent but coffee didn't come for 10min after the dessert, we could not flag down our server. Next time we will make it clear that we want them together. We will be eating there again!

The noise level rose significantly as dinner service got underway, but other than that, our time was fantastic. The food was incredible and our service was more than satisfactory. We will definitely be coming back to eat every time we attend an arts function.

This restaurant is GREATLY improved! The food was both creative and delicious. The host is very personable and gracious. We have dined here in the past when attending symphonies, and it was usually disappointing. Thankfully, not now!
Note to management: advertise more clearly to symphony-goers--I couldn't remember the name of the restaurant and had to go through the Woodruff Center phone maze to find out.

The service was very good, the food was mediocre, but the noise level was HORRIBLE! We were seated in the bar area but we won't do that again. Could not have a conversation! And this was early, before the play at the Alliance. The other dining area appeared to not be open. The noise level in there are a much lower.

We regularly attend the Atlanta Symphony, but had stayed away from Table 1280 for a number of years because of a prior bad service experience. However, last Saturday we decided to give them another chance because of the convenience of having the symphony in the same building. Unfortunately, we were disappointed.
This time, our waiter was fine. However, the restaurant was frigid and my wife had to wear my suit jacket during dinner. Then, even though we told the wait staff that we had plenty of time and wanted to eat dinner slowly, our soup and salad were brought before we had finished our appetizer. Due to our protestations, our entrees were delivered in a decent interval from our soup/salad course. As far as food quality, the appetizer (spring roll) and soup/salad (my wife had the soup of the day and I had a beet salad) were fine. However, the entrée- we both had lamb shank- was very heavy, mostly due to the large amount of rice and root vegetables included. Additionally, the restaurant ambience is very noisy, not because the patrons are noisy (they are mostly symphony patrons) but because the décor is bare with nothing to buffer the noise.
We do not plan to dine again at Restaurant 1280 and if we do so, it will only be for the extreme convenience to Symphony Hall.
