A word from Atlas Grill and Clubroom
Located in downtown Minneapolis, Atlas Grill is one of the Twin Cities dining treasures. The Mediterranean influenced cuisine features signature fire roasted meats and seafood. The Star Tribune has called Atlas' food "out of this world". During the day, Atlas is a popular lunch destination. In the evening, Atlas becomes a venue for private parties and special events. Atlas' dining room features dark wood work with beautiful draperies and tropical fish tanks. The Atrium is more open and garden like surrounded by numerous plants and high glass ceilings. A full service bar with seating connects the two areas. Atlas Grill is a great location for corporate dinners, meetings, cocktail parties and wedding receptions. The banquet menu offers buffet, served and platter style dinner options.

    The whole meal was incredible - curry chicken quesadillas and the atlas chicken were incredible flavorful. And the lemon drop Martina's were the perfect combination of sweet and sour. I must when visiting Minneapolis.

    It was the first time I ate in the backroom area and it was much nicer than out front with all the traffic from the skyway. You could actually hear the other person talking. I would recommend the backroom area. For the lunch hour when you are on a time crunch the service was excellent.

    We selected Atlas Grill and Clubroom because they were offering 1000 points. Great place! It's located in the US Bank building at 200 S. 6th Street. We ordered the Seafood Plank for two but it would have easily served three. The fish was excellent - Sea Bass, Salmon and Walleye. Melt in your mouth delicious! The service was excellent, too. We were there on a Friday evening at 6PM and it was not busy. We would definitely choose this restaurant again. Thanks!

    Hoped the chilean sea bass would have been seared longer to develop the buttery taste of the fish. Rice side dish was dry and didn't compliment the fish, try a sweeter side dish. Vegetables were perfect and lovely compliment. We requested pre set house salad and it was very good and guests appreciated there was something to eat when they arrived. Fresh lemonade, rather than from the gun would have been great on a hot summer's day. Iced tea was perfect.

    I have enjoyed business lunches at Atlas, and was looking forward to dinner. Wow, the lamb was amazing! The curried potatoes with crispy onion that went with my fire roasted lamb were delicious, and with the vegetables...YUM! He had the pork tenderloin and loved every bite. We didn't have room for any more so my pomegranate martini was my liquid dessert. We left fill and happy and will return.

    My wife and I went on a Friday in lent. While my grilled shrimp was delightful, her walleye was not only excellent but wonderfully unique. The seasoning on the walleye was nit like anything we had ever had . It was served with potatoes and peppers that had a delectable curry seasoning that makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Price is very reasonable for food of this quality. Chocolate torte for dessert recommended by the waiter was spot on.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 3/7/2014
    Lots of notable people dine here. In one lunch hour, I saw several elected officials and a number of high ranking company executives. That said, the food is not as interesting as the company. The walleye sandwich was actually pretty awful. It was like the walleye had been boiled. The bun was soggy and wet to match the boiled fish and the tomato was woody. The French fries were nothing special either.

    The food was excellent and the validated parking makes the downtown location even more convenient! Atlus Grill made an excellent choice this Valentine's Day! The portions were ample and the price fit. I would definitely recommend Atlus for special occasions or a little more formal dates!

    My wife and I are pretty down to Earth, but when we dress up to go out for a nice dinner, we expect it to be a classy place and to be surrounded by people who want the same experience. The dinner crowd that we encountered did not share that sentiment. Someone nearby ordered a Miller Light, which made my wine taste even worse. Bottom line is that this is simply not a place to go for a nice dinner, so just cross this off your list if that's what you're after. If you want to grab food before a game, sure, fine, go for it. The food was okay; you get what you pay for.

    My fiance and I went to Atlas for Valentine's Day Dinner. The food was amazing and the service was great. We received our food it seemed in less than five minutes after we ordered (we had just finished their basket of bread as the food was coming out). I would definitely recommend Atlas for a formal dine.

    It would be an OK place for a business lunch, would not recommend it for a dinner tho...the main course was pretty good, appetizer and salad were very bland and nothing exciting....I called ahead to verify we would be in the dinning room and they still seated us out in the commons area...They also said that they validate parking, not in my view...They gave a voucher which was $2.00 off of the $8.00 parking charge. I would not recommend this place unless you were already in the US bank building and want to over pay for a lunch...

    Maybe I'm spoiled, but I expected more. Atlas is a prime MSP location. I was looking for service and attention to detail similar to other MSP restaurants. Now, there were other diners there, and large groups that wee taking advantage of happy hour, but if you font have the tine or temperament to make my evening enjoyable or special, just let line know that I'm about to waste my dining dollar, A little attention, a little gratitude goes s long way. Disappointing?!!

    Drinks - average to above average Appetizer, calamari - very good Dinner, pork loin - very good, salmon - average to below (overcooked with a can of spicy black beans dumped on top) Location - easy to get to using skyway system, definite plus! Ambiance - well, expected dining room setting but apparently there were no other reservations for that evening so they had "reserved" a booth in the expansive bar area while leaving restaurant area "clean" - not what was wanted or wouldn't have bothered with reservation (LOUD) Recommendation - not bad if other places already booked but don't bother with reservation for dinner, apparently not on anyone's "go to" list 2nd Recommendation - if offered "1000 point reservations" by Open Table, don't use!

    Perhaps Atlas is a good option for lunch, but I was really disappointed in Atlas as a dinner spot. I was in town and wanted to treat a family friend to a nice dinner. The restaurant was close to my hotel and the photos looked classy. But when we got there, I was told that the dining room was only open at lunch and we would have to sit out in the bar area in the lobby of the building. It was loud (not in the pleasant "restaurant" sense, but in the loud, echoey "lobby of a business building" sense.) The tables resembled something I would expect at a fast-casual restaurant. The food tasted like something I could have made myself out of stuff in my pantry - bland and not very fresh. We were asked to leave at 9.

    Atlas grill is one of those out of the Way downtown spots that works great for a business lunch. The indoor part of the restaurant works best for a quiet conversation and the food is simple fare , so everyone can find something they like. Service can be spotty, feels like a lot of turnover, but that's one diners perception. Hearts of palm salad and daily omelettes are two of my favourites.
