    We were very impressed with the way the staff works together in such a positive manner. Everyone helped each other wether it was their table or not, such as offering to take our unfinished food to be boxed while our waitress was explaining the dessert menu. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. I will be returning again!

    I have visited this and other Atria's in the past and have found it to be a nice local lunch alternative. This time however I was underwhelmed by the food. My fish sandwich was not only unappealing to look at, it appeared to be very overcooked, but it also came on a bun with nothing else. There was no sauce of any kind, no garnish and though I was told there was a side when it was delivered there was nothing. I was with 2 other adults and the waiter alluded to the basket of fries that another diner ordered additionally as she too had nothing else on her plate besides the sandwich she ordered. I was surprised that any chef would approve of this lone piece of fish on a bun on a white plate leaving the kitchen. Three doors down is a deli and they actually offer 2 sides. Probably a better choice in the future. On a very positive note, the young woman who greeted guests and made reservations had the finest customer service I have witnessed in quite a long time.

    My lunch was very good at Atria's. I had vegetable salad/half Rachel sandwich combo. The salad was as good as it always is. I had never tried the Rachel before and it was one of the best I have ever had. I will say, however, that I miss the buns that Atria's had at one time - the bread isn't as good as the buns. Service was prompt and attentive.

    We chose this place due to its good location, great and friendly service, and favorite food choices. Unfortunately, two items were no longer available that day. The birthday girl wanted swordfish for her entree. They had no more in the kitchen. Her boyfriend really wanted the carrot cake. But, that was sold out, too. Very disappointing. The other choices were tasty and we enjoyed the selections. We will return again.

    Our table was ready when we arrived and our server was very attentive. Our party of four all enjoyed our meals, which were prepared with much attention to detail and were absolutely delicious. And the peanut butter mousse for dessert was exceptional, from its wonderful presentation until the last bite was consumed.

    I hate to say that I was disappointed in my last visit. Noise level was distracting, unable to hear waitress and ended up with peppercorn ranch dressing because I couldn't hear her say "peppercorn." The heat level was so high in the dressing that I couldn't eat it. Noisy, fussy child at a table behind us competed with blaring muzak and it was very difficult to hear my guest sitting across from me. I was disappointed that the tortellini was omitted from the menu and replaced with subpar Oktoberfest dishes. Waitress was extremely knowledgeable about all dishes on menu. I'll be back, but not for a while.

    Not the first time we had poor service here. Very disappointing. The service in McMurray is always better than this one in Pleasant Hills. It would be nice to get what we ordered. It would also be nice to get what we ordered in a timely manner. One or the other would be an upgrade here. If you are planning a special occasion I would go elsewhere. If just looking for an upbeat,close to home place to dine, with an energetic bar scene this is for you. If you are expecting above average service you will be disappointed.

    We have gone to Atria's Pleasant Hills many times, but this time is was a disappointment. Had a reservation but were seated 45 minutes after reservation time while those without a reservation were seated before us. One of our party had pork loin and was not able to chew it - very tough. We were celebrating a special occasion and were upset that it was somewhat ruined by these issues. Probably will not return to this particular establishment. The manager did try to make compensation for our disappointing experience, but the evening was ruined and compensation would not make it any better

    We were very impressed with Chef Scott. We went for Octoberfest and asked Nicole , our great server, if we could have the weinerschnitzel a special way - a la holstein. Chef Scott came to our table to ask us how to prepare it. We could n't believe that during a peak time on a Sat. night , the chef came to our table to speak to us. He prepared it perfectly. We will definitely return.

    We always liked it, but, again, another bad meal. Seared tilapia was awful. Soggy and tasteless. Last time, beef kabobs were overcooked and impossible to cut and eat. Disappointed. We've always liked it there.

    I went there with a groups of family and friends and sadly it was an awful experience. Our waiter was slow and we practically had to call him from across the room to come to our table to order drinks, get refills, and order our food. My friend doesn't eat meat and requested no bacon on her salad and sure enough she got bacon. We sent it back and didn't get a new salad until after she was done eating her main course. That's only because he finally came back to our table and we reminded him. I wouldn't go back there again!

    We recently visited Atria's in Pleasant Hills and the food was outstanding, to say the least! They were busy and the very nice waitress kept apologizing for the delay but we didn't mind, as we were not in a rush. The food was brought out in a timely manner, even though they were busy, so we have no complaints. The only thing I minded was the background music was more than energetic, it was very loud! I believe it was finally turned down a little, or I just got used to it, not sure which. But on the whole, the experience was good and we will definitely go back there for another great meal!

    We had reservations at 5:15 for dinner before going to the theatre. We sat on the enclosed terrace and the windows were open to the outside which allowed a beautiful breeze to blow gently, reminding us of our vacations to the islands. So nice. I ordered a Mojito but it was disappointing and the waitress brought me a terrific gin martini instead. My husband also had a martini with 3 blue cheese stuffed olives. His second drink only came with one olive which was slightly disappointing and surprising that it was not consistent with the first. We both ordered Steak Oscar which came with grilled asparagus and salads --outstanding meals. Very pleasant waitress. Overall a winner of an evening.

    Atrias is the best bet going in Pleasant Hills/jefferson right now. The food is predictably good. The service has improved greatly from its beginnings. Sit at the bar if it's just two of you. The front porch/dining room can be too loud! The vibe is very current so kudos on the overall atmosphere and hip menu.

    Everything was lovely. My only suggestion is that the Bruchetta should be cut in half. While it is quite tasty, it is too hard to eat in chunks. If it is cut down in one more layer, there would be more to share.
