Twelve Eighty - Inspired Dining fka Table 1280 Ratings and Reviews

We love to dine here pre show. New menu items on this date. We loved the Scallop shrimp entree and we always get the flatbread of the day. We were seated in the bar area at a table due to the heavy booked night. A bit noisy in this room. The dining rooms are less noisy, but we were comfortable in the bar. Three performances at the Arts Center that night, everyone trying to dine between 6-8pm. So we understand their need to use as much seating as possible in the 6-8pm timeframe. The kitchen was not quite prepared for the large crowd. A delay of over thirty minutes from appetizer to entree. Entrees were a bit cold on top and another diner at our table had to request a replacement for a bowl of soup that should have been served hot. I really pity this restaurant since they have a limit window of time to accommodate their peak diners. The wait staff, as always is friendly and attentive. They did manage to get us one dessert to the table quickly and we were to rushed to get to the theatre. Despite the odd timing from the kitchen, we will return and look forward to trying more new items on the menu. We do receommend this place. It would probably make for a quiet evening if you dine after 8pm.

The service was very good. The noise level is pretty high, which may be an attractive thing to some but hard for conversation if someone is a bit hard of hearing. Our food was very good but portions seemed a bit small for the price. I would choose something else the next time in order to get a more filling dinner entree.

An attractive, comfortable restaurant with a friendly atmosphere. Not an expansive menu but enough for a pre-show dinner. Very tasty appetizer selection and a selection of a few to share could substitute for a main course. The restaurant shares the same plaza with the Woodruff performaning arts theatres.

Table 1280 fit the bill perfectly for a Sunday lunch before catching a play at the Alliance Theater. Great food, lots of choices, and prompt service made this lunch a relaxing way to fuel up before a show. The space is light and bright with a nice view of the High Museum courtyard . Definitely recommend!

The service and entree dishes was outstanding. Bar and wait staff friendly and accommodating. Our party was seated first beside a table where a fellow diner had way too much cologne on.. We asked to be re-seated and the waiter took care of it immediately. The place setting includes water glasses but no offer of water was extended. The lobster egg salad appetizer was tasty but I could not detect the "lobster". The Salmon was wonderful and cooked expertly. My dining companion had the TACOS and enjoyed them very much. I hope to get back there soon.

Reserved before an Alliance performance(Prom which was awesome).
1280 was terribly under staffed.
At first they tried to put us in bar(four people) and the noise was brutal.
Then they said no table was available in main dining room, in fact, there were six-eight tables available.
Waited a long time to order, then a long time to get served.
The maitre'd was just walking around when he could well have been assisting getting drinks, etc.
They have a real management problem.
Will not go again!

I have had the Ahi Tuna salad before and it was excellent, but this Wednesday, it was clearly "bad." The server seemed to have a hard time getting things straight, didn't understand a request for bread with salad, insisting that there were taco strips on the salad. I knew it would be unproductive to send plate back, as there were 6 of us there for a museum outing. Disappointing food and service.

I have been here a few times - love the food!! Our server this time wasn't the nicest and honestly was a bit cold and borderline rude... There was a lipstick stain on my water glass and it seemed like I bothered her by telling her about this. She also didn't ask if we wanted more drinks and we only saw her once when she did a drive by "dropping the bill off at our table". If the food wasn't so good then I probably would have asked to speak to the manager. Not sure I'll be going back any time soon...

My husband and I had dinner here on a Friday night after a museum event with another couple. It's such a great location and a nice space, and we think it could really be a place to shine. Hardly anyone was there. The food was meh. Cheese board had grocery-store cheese that was too cold. The bottle of white wine was warm, so we instructed the server to please find a chilled second bottle and put it in an ice bucket. Our dear server tried too hard, and must have said "my pleasure" a thousand times which got old. Her timing was poor on most things, though she was polite. The price point did not match the food. We won't be back, but we HOPE someone buys this place and turns it around. The location has such potential.

After dining here many times as Arts Center patrons, this was probably the best overall experience. Service was excellent, as was the food (lobster sandwich). Usually hurried due to an upcoming show and the likelihood of having to rush eating the meal due to a slow chef and somewhat crowded restaurant, this was not the case. While asked to dine in the bar area "due to new furnishings," lead to our reserved table (which some others were asked to vacant), the atmosphere, fine food, timeliness and service lead to an enjoyable dining experience. This place is clearly under new management. The real test of whether the name change and "inspired dining" can be delivered will be how food can be delivered timely when we have a show to see and the restaurant is crowded. The menu has great choices and there are summer specials. It is a very nice place to visit before or after an artsy event.

Table 1280 is our go to restaurant when we are catching a show at the Alliance theater, or visiting the High in the afternoon. I have never been disappointed. When booking you can tell them you are catching a show at a specific time, and they will accommodate you and make sure you can leave the restaurant and still have a good amount of time to get ready. The staff are so friendly to kids, service is great, food usually comes out pretty quickly, and the food is excellent.

The food and atmosphere were fantastic. The only complaint that I had was that the waitstaff was not as attentive as I would have liked. For me, this had a negative impact on our experience. This last visit was the second visit that my daughter and I have been to Twelve Eighty - Inspired Dining fka Table 1280, and both times we received poor service. While we really enjoyed the food and the manager on duty was very friendly and helped to distract from the unbalanced service, I am not sure that I would recommend this place to a friend (unless time is not a restriction).

Table 1280 provides a great place for lunch or dinner while visiting the Woodruff Art Center (ASO, Alliance Theater, High Museum of Art). We were promptly seated and well cared for by our waitress. They provided the perfect light lunch before an afternoon at the High on our anniversary.

Right at the High and Atlanta Symphony, so it is convenient for those venues. It strives to be a fancy place but it would be best off with standard fare. Neither my wife or I was impressed with the food. Best for an appetizer and a drink before a concert or while visiting the museum. But for even a drink you need a reservation given how much they have cut back on seating and help in the bar.
Disappointing service this time around. ...
Disappointing service this time around. We are regulars and dine their before events at the WAC. We have worked through the menu and have experienced different service personnel. Only one seems to manage a proper order of delivery. Our dinner on this occasion was not served in proper order. If one orders soup and a hot entree, they should not be served at the same time. This makes it difficult to enjoy both before they are cold. We had plenty of time to enjoy each course separately. The server even stated he would monitor the courses. This has happened several times, so in fairness to the servers, something is amiss in the kitchen. WE did enjoy the flatbread, as usual. It was served after our drinks order. The lobster bisque was way too salty, again not the usual high standard from the soup chef. We can, however, applaud the Tuscan Chicken Stack as a new and great entree. Although trying to eat both at the same time was not pleasant.
This was not a busy night. One dining room was closed off and we barely had a half full room of diners. The waiter was busy with a regular table next to us and we barely got his attention once they arrived. We had a long lull before he took our dessert order, nearly opted out of ordering because of that, and he never brought us water after removing the entree dishes. Luckily it was a nice wet Panna Cotta. Come on guys, get it together, we love dining there!

My husband and I chose to dine at Twelve Eighty because of its proximity to Symphony Hall and were pleasantly surprised. Making a reservation online was a snap, the service was excellent and the food was quite good.
Good food convenient
We dined at 1280 for the second time just before a concert at symphony hall due to convenience, (it's next door ) and we really enjoyed the food and the service was also good. We even tasted the desert and we're pleased it was also good. We will dine there again .

Someone from 1280 called around 3 in the afternoon to say they would not be serving dinner that night. We were very disappointed and had to quickly find another place to dine. I would be hesitant to make a reservation again for fear this would happen again.
Great date night out
Food was excellent. We had the lobster devil eggs and the fruit salad for starters and the salmon and tenderloin medallions as main dishes. Everything was very good. The server got us out in time for the ASO concert even though we were late for our reservation time. try the Fruit Salad - it is new to the menu. Good as a starter, as a main dish with a cup of soup, or as a dessert with out the feta.

While the food was good, it was not particularly remarkable. My fish was not cooked the way I requested (salmon slightly pink in the middle). The wine was nice. Service was a bit slow, especially since we told him we had concert tickets. We arrived with 2 minutes to spare and the restaurant is 30 seconds from the Woodruff Arts Center entrance. I do like the location and would go back to give them a second chance to wow me.
