Twelve Eighty - Inspired Dining Ratings and Reviews
1. We waited 10+ minutes for our reserved table, while walk-ins that came in at same time we did were seated just as quickly.
2. Server checked tables around us but did not greet or take care of us. After 15 minutes of being ignored I got up and brought back the manager who did help us.
3. Another 30+ minutes to get our food. Salads and entrees arrived almost together for my wife, while my appetizer was forgotten. My burger took another 10 minutes to arrive and then the vegetable side was cold. Server never approached our table during the meal, avoiding us the rest of our meal.
Overall a very bad server experience. The restaurant manager did try to help and adjusted our check by ~$6 noting our “long wait”... but she was stretched very thin by the busy evening.
It's hard to imagine that a restaurant attached to a concert hall can't manage the process of getting diners fed and out on time. But we've found one in 1280. The kitchen was so slow (it took nearly an hour to produce a burger and a plate of pasta) that there was no time left for coffee and dessert. The manager apologized, but the reality is that you'd better have a lot of time on your hands if you want to eat here. Oh, and by the way, the food once you get it, isn't bad.
Delicious food and friendly service. Great place to go before a show, but they had trouble wrapping us up at the end, and we were rushed getting to the symphony. Hosts are very fun and knowledgeable - great personalities. Delicious vegetarian entree. Yummy desserts and drinks.
Have always eaten in the bar area. This time was seated in the large room. The tables are much too close for a room with no acoustics. Was able to hear numerous conversations. I like this place as a neighborhood go-to otherwise. Service this one visit not great.
We had a lovely dinner with good friends. Service was excellent and very accommodating - we splIt a couple of salads (because they sounded so good) and the kitchen managed to split four ways. Everyone had a different entree - they were all served hot and very tasty! It was just a great meal experience!
I asked for NO SALT and my food was very salty. Waitress was nice but not sure about the menu. My husband ordered a flatbread appetizer and it was literally raw - nothing on the menu suggested that this was a raw dish. It was bread, cream cheese, salmon (lox), etc. Just like eating a bagel.
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.
