Atlas Global Bistro
early dinnerExcellent food and service. We hope they will be able to re-open in a great new location closer to the center of downtown.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service. Only slight criticism is that the dessert selection could have been better. Will be sorry to see it close but looking forward to hearing about its new location, preferably within the city.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDining prior to Tigers vs. IndiansThe Global Bistro is within walking distance of Comerica Park so it was a perfect spot for dining versus eating at the ball park.
Valet parking was available, service was perfect, atmosphere was soothing and the food outstanding especially the short ribs with the mint enhanced rice risotto. My next Tiger, Lions or downtown event will be preceded by another visit to the Global Bistro!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful Dining ExperienceWe were a few minutes late for our symphony-night reservation at 6:30 PM. They seated us promptly and the waiter was aware that we had a deadline to get to Orchestra Hall. The restaurant has a shuttle, which made that part of the evening's logistics so much easier. We enjoyed an excellent glass of wine and wonderful meals. We'll definitely go back!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDate Night PerfectionMy girlfriend and I took advantage of the Detroit Restuarant Week menu on the last night of the event. Having mixed feelings about past experiences during DRW I was unsure what to expect at Atlas. The atmosphere was ideal other than the bar being so close to the dining area, it was fairly noisy at times. Our server was pleasant and attentive. We were both happy with our first course, but after tasting my dates scallop I wished I had ordered the same. It was cooked perfectly and the peppers went well with the buttery flavor. Our entrees were phenomenal. Both my pork and her lamb chops were exploding with flavor and texture. The "Rock N'Rye" reduction went nicely wih the pork. Both desserts were stellar. I would recommend Atlas to everyone.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, we went for restaurantGreat food, we went for restaurant week and had a great experience with a wide variety of choices for each course. We really enjoyed the Gazpacho and the Lamb Chops. Good drink menu as well, I can definitely recommend Atlas!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful and deliciousThe elegantly simple layout/decor, the more than cordial service, the fact that our meals were all wonderful and creative all contributed to the lovely experience we had at Atlas Global Bistro. We didn't need it but the fact that they offer $5 valet was good to know for future trips. There is an obvious emphasis on attention to detail that I hope keeps this restaurant around for good!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMfirst time at atlas ..AMAZING!Me and my good friend went here for restaurant week on a Thursday and off the back was impressed with the menu. We made reservations for 9 pm but of course people like to chat and drink at their tables so we waited at the bar until a table was ready which was not a problem, the bartender was friendly.
The head waiter was also extremely friendly as he keep us updated on your table status
when we finally sat down we ordered the scallops amazing..duct confit amazing, lamb..amazing ha... dessert on the other hand i had the creme brulee and was not impressed..it didnt have the right amount of sugar, so only tasted like heavy cream custard
besides that. would go again...loved it!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMy experience at Atlas wasMy experience at Atlas was excellent. I loved the food and the service. I will definately spread the word about this place !!!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was out-of-this-worldThe food was out-of-this-world wonderful, but be aware that portions are small.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMChose this restaurant to re-visitChose this restaurant to re-visit as part of restaurant week after reviewing the menus and this was a big hit with me and our group. Their menu offered the most variety and would appeal to everyone including those on special diets. The waitress was very helpful in offering suggestions and there were options to customize if you didn't want all of your courses: don't want a dessert, you can have 2 appetizers. Most restaurants aren't that helpful. I had soy braised short ribs and they were extremely tender. My only complaint was portion size - More! Though there were quite a few diners the sound level was low. Using valet parking made this an easy in and out. Would definitely return.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMCall to see if food is availableOut of 1 of their entree's by 7pm, boo....everything else was good though, but no clue about what I really wanted, AND WENT THERE FOR4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PlaceThe service was outstanding, Tiffany was the best! Food was awesome and wine was even better. Will definitely visit this place again! If visiting during restaurant week, reservations is highly recommended. The restaurant is sort of small4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMYour restaurant week menueYour restaurant week menue was the most extensive I have seen. Most are limited to 3 items in each category. The lamb chops were superb.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFood good, service meh...The food was very good. Portions were a little small. We did go during restaurant week, so the portion size wasn't unexpected. Both my husband and I enjoyed our "date." Our server, seemed a bit distracted. As he was taking our order he was watching the table next to us, spilled my beer as he put it down (he did apologise, but never got me anything to wipe up the spill) and never asked if we would like a second beer when he took away our glasses. Now, I realize how busy restaurant week can be, but we went early when it was still fairly empty. Nothing unforgivable or rude, just a bit of a turnoff when it came to our particular server. He seemed much more interested in helping tables that were a little older.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went here for restaurantWe went here for restaurant week. The food was original and well presented, however they were out of many of the items (typical for rest. week). The appetizers, Scallop with Preserved Peppers and Atlas Salad, were excellent. My dinner companion had the Duck Confit, which looked and tasted amazing. The elements were well-balanced. My Lamb Chops, while tasty, were overwhelmed by the horseradish in the crust, making the saffron a bit of a waste. Desserts: the chocolate cake my server suggested was extremely dry and almost frozen. My companion had an off-menu item (substitution for lack of cremes brulee), some kind of cinnamon chocolate cake with flan that was actually pretty decent. We'd definitely eat there again.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMi've been a guest at the atlasi've been a guest at the atlas a few times a year for maybe 10 years or so. i have never been disappointed - the food and service are always top notch.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was awesome. ServiceFood was awesome. Service was good, but there was a long wait before each course was served. Took 2 hours to complete dinner. That was the only negative for me.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a busy night (DetroitIt was a busy night (Detroit Restaurant Week) and the service was a little slow. But, I've been in before with the same server with no problem, so I'm willing to chalk it up to an off night. The Bahn Mi, Amalfi Salad and the Braised Short Ribs were excellent, and the desserts as delicious as well as artfully presented. The Pork Loin was too heavily salted for my taste. My wife thought it was delicious.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food and great service.Fantastic food and great service. The staff was particularly helpful in recommending dishes and wines based on our preferences. I ordered the pork tenderloin with the Rock and Rye reduction, and the flavors were amazing. The atmosphere was refined but not overly stuffy; most folks in the room were carrying on lively conversations. I would absolutely recommend it for a special occasion out!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful place. Have manyDelightful place. Have many times found it to fit unique situations and groups. There is food to match all tastes. We were especially impressed this time when due to weather we were late and needed to catch a curtain. Our waiter told us which food dneeded longer preparation, etc. so that we could eat well, and still get to our destination. My guest were very impressed and pledge to return.
Thank you.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAtlas has long been a familyAtlas has long been a family favorite. The brunch menu is stellar as is the food and service. You just can't go wrong here. We recently took my 83 yo Mother there and mentioned it was her birthday. Even though we were 20 minutes late they held us a table by the windows and even brought her a DELICIOUS slice of cake with a candle in it after our meal.

A neighborhood gem,love Detroit!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, may be slow to arriveWe've eaten here on a number of occasions, usually in conjunction with attending the symphony, so it is a restaurant we generally enjoy. They have a shuttle bus to the Hall which is most appreciated. On our most recent visit I was surprised by the slowness of food to arrive from the kitchen and when it came my chicken was barely warm. That aside, the flavor was very good, well prepared, good wine selection. We are a party of 4 and ate early so restaurant was not yet very busy.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a lovely meal at AtlasWe had a lovely meal at Atlas and best of all, we were able to valet park and take their complimentary shuttle the few blocks to Orchestra Hall to hear the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
