Twelve Eighty - Inspired Dining Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant is so convenient before a show at the Alliance!
The food was good, nice presentations.
Waiter was awful.
We had to ask several times for water refills, lemon, straws, to please bring out coffee and cream. They were not busy and there should not have been a problem.
Also told they would not substitute goat cheese for blue cheese crumbles on one dish. Ridiculous!
Told they will not serve bread at lunch..only at dinner.
No need for that kind of attitude!
Our server was great! Also, the manager and maitre'd were both very good and both came by our table to check on things. Food was excellent and not overly priced. Overall a good experience! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a place to eat before the theatre or symphony or a restaurant for after a museum visit.
I have been there several times for an outstanding experience. This time all was the same and outstanding except the noise level. We were in the entrance room and their were a large number of young people standing around one of the height top tables having drinks and the noise level was so loud from them that it was painful. I asked to be moved to the back room which was substanrially less noisy, but all tables were reserved. The next time I make a reservation, I will request the back room.
Last minute decision and it was a great decision. I cannot say enough great things about the staff from the greeting host, who waited while I booked on Open Table to get my points. Our Server was friendly, courteous and very informative about the menu items. The passing servers inquired about our dining experience and management came and inquired about our entire dining experience. We stayed for an approximate hour and a half just chatting and leisurely enjoying our meal. It was that comfortable and no pressure to hurry our dining experience. The decor is modern, light and airy with lots of windows to people watch and the restrooms were clean. However, I would prefer warm water to wash my hands. All in all a good experience it was. This restaurant is located on the platform with The High Museum of Art, The Woodruff Arts Center and The Alliance Theatre.
Twelve-Eighty might be the best restaurant in Midtown! We eat there every chance we get - and almost always before a show or concert at Woodruff. Timothy is a GEM! He makes you feel very special and comfortable. Stephen and all the staff are wonderful. You will never go wrong at 1280!
Probably the only "best" place to dine before symphony or a play at the Woodruff Arts Center, but though the food is very good, the service still misses the mark. Three of the last three times we have eaten at 1280 the seating process seems confused, and the pace of the evening meal service is poor. Took forever to get our drink orders; the hotel entree came to us just after we started our salad. Some training and leadership could convert this place into a star.
We all ordered the special which was prime rib. It was not prime rib, but some kind of grilled steak. It was not edible. It truly was like shoe leather. I am not exaggerating. We chose your restaurant because we were going to the symphony.
OK place if you have a performance at the WAC to attend. They never seem to change the menu, and if you have allergies, you may find your choice extremely limited. The service tries very hard and focuses on getting everyone to their performance on time. This seems to work well, since they have someone in charge of the order and others to deliver the food as soon as it is ready. This is not a good place for a conversation. Also, the night we were there it was rather cold (some diners wore their coats), and they were unable to adjust the temperature themselves.
1280 is perfect for symphony or play goers. The staff works to get you out on time, but you can linger over your wine or desert if you start early enough. It closes at 8 PM, however, so it's not for late eaters. My bet is that this will change, because I would love to eat there under non-symphonic conditions.
Do not go to this restaurant unless you're intending to see a show at the High Museum or other such related activities. I went with my boyfriend, not knowing it was basically the High museum's cafeteria, and it was awkward. Around 8pm, no one except the staff is in the main dining room and the place is a fishbowl-all glass walls.
Service by Mariah was exceptional. The restaurant is located at the High Museum Atlanta Symphony and has a great selection of cocktails. The small bites are tasty but really over prices. 3 deviled eggs for $6 kind of pricing. The fish taco (2 for $11 is a great deal) so value varies. If you are at the museum it is a great option but I certainly would not drive out of my way and pay for parking to go to the restaurant. That said, they have an awesome wine list...
We were visiting Atlanta and planned to finish our site seeing at the High Museum. While we thought this may have been the museum's own restaurant, it is stand alone, but in the museum/theater complex, so very handy. The menu is what you might expect for a museum-associated restaurant. They offer a decent number of options but not an expansive menu. This is a description, not a complaint. All of the food we had was very tasty and well-prepared. The wine menu was well done. The wait staff were attentive and knowledgeable. The biggest good surprise was the bill - most of the entrees were under $20. This is great value for the quality, ambiance, and portion size.
