Twelve Eighty - Inspired Dining Ratings and Reviews
Three ladies went on a Wednesday, preceding a 6:30 concert in Symphony Hall. We shared the following: Tuna poke (appetizer), a vegetable pasta dish, grilled asparagus, and the salmon (without the bacon!). All items were DELICIOUS... and it was an ample meal for the tree of us!! Our waiter was very good, and it was quiet enough for us to have a wonderful conversation.
All in all, a fabulous meal.... and good experience (except, I wasn't given the points and had to call Open Table). Also, I left my Visa card and have to go back down there to retrieve it.... My only recommendation would be that perhaps bacon doesn't need to be added to so many dishes....
The Easter Sunday buffet was magnificent. Starters included smoked salmon, jumbo shrimp, fruit, salads, breads and juices. Breakfast items were made to order omelets, scrambled eggs, bacon,sausage, grits, and special pancakes. The entrees included bourbon chicken, fish, middle eastern paella, roast turkey, luscious lamb, roast cauliflower, asparagus, confetti rice and garlic mashed potatoes. Also included was an extensive dessert buffet. Children had their own special table with kid friendly foods and special Easter treats. Each dish had a special twist to recommend it. Service was gracious and attentive. The kitchen had reason to be proud, if you have theopportunity to visit 1280 for their buffet, jump at the chance. You won't regret it!
I thoroughly enjoy Table 1280. The food is always excellent and excellently prepared. I love the bright, contemporary ambiance and the wait staff, as well as the host/hostess staff, make the evening so pleasurable. It is always my first choice go-to when I am heading to the museum, or anything going on in the Woodruff Arts Center. Hope you enjoy it too.
Love this restaurant. Between the delicious food, lovely waitstaff, smartly appointed decor and airy interior awash with light due to the floor to ceiling windows, I always enjoy myself immensely. The food is just my thing - delicious, flavorful, fresh ingredients combined creatively and well prepared. Wonderful.
Table 1280 is very convenient if going to the alliance or the Symphony and there is always a good choice of menu selections. You can never go wrong with the hamburger. The shrimp and grits are also among the best. Service can be hit or miss, but this time it was fine. It is simply a great standby if you can get a reservation.
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.
