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.

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.

A new menu with some new offerings, still a very pleasant place to dine before events at the Woodruff Arts Center. New appetizer Pastrami Spring Rolls excellent, but a meal in itself. Lamb Shank a bit fatty, but flavorful. Only criticism is that Alcoholic drinks seem excessively expensive, a good bar selection, but drinks add up quickly.

Service was prompt and friendly. The 1280 salad was a delightful combination of arugala, nuts and cheese. The scallops and shrimp on grits were topped with an excellent sauce. Overall, a very good dining experience.

Service was poor. We ordered our meal and watched other people eat, even people who came in and ordered after us. Once we mentioned (the second time) that we did not get our food after almost 45 minutes so we decided to leave. it was at that point they decided they found our food !!!! We cannot give any ratings on the food since we did not get to eat.
But POOR service, I would not ever go back.

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.
