    I went to Atrium recently on a Friday night. Was excited to get a 9pm reservation with 20 min notice. The ambiance inside was very nice with high ceilings and plants on the walls; we loved it. The food and wine were also delicious. Two comments: food portions were not that big, and it was somewhat challenging to find a bottle of wine for less than $50. But I will definitely go back.

    I was going to a show across the street at Galapagos Art Space. The staff were all very friendly and made me feel right at home.We had the chicken for two; it was delicious. The pot pie was so creamy and silky and the puff pastry crust was perfect. The dill creme fraiche was a a nice touch too. I would totally comebck.

    We were curious about this new place from the Colonie people. The food was tasty and well prepared and presented. We did not like the service for brunch: there was only one hostess/server, she was polite but somewhat snobbish. Very slow for the drinks at the beginning and kept being slow. The only person on top of the service was the excellent bus boy. The ambiance is pleasant but the seating map is quite odd. We might try it again for a second chance and to see if they have resolved their issues.

    The food was really good.. the service was really average.. We ordered their 2 pieces of bread that costs $3 on the menu which took forever to be served and then practically came together with the main entrees. After which, the server proceeded to say that we got lucky because we got the last bread serving of the Should we really feel so blessed? I mean, we did wait patiently and paid for it .. next time perhaps make a larger batch..

    This place was solid. I will likely return. Their seafood menu options attracted me and their delivery was impeccable. The service was great...they were great help in finding wine pairings for our courses. Personal recommendations: the Fluke and the french style doughnuts (with a cappuccino) . I slept like a baby after that meal :)

    I just moved to Brooklyn from Manhattan and decided to try Atrium. The starters we got were good/standard (cheese plate, charred romaine, & beef tartare - did not like the egg yolk & mayo sauce, the menu just said egg yolk). The seasonal pasta (clams & a white wine/chili sauce) was excellent, definitely the best part of the meal. Minor complaints: Prices were a little high for small portions (but comparable to Manhattan restaurants), they ran out of the Rose' after 1 glass (and it was the only 1 they had on the menu). The waitress was very nice/attentive, but the meal took forever. The food/wine was slow to come (restaurant was not full) & the food came out as 3 courses w/ waiting in between despite us ordering mostly small dishes to share

    I've been here for brunch and dinner a couple of times and it's been consistent: great food, great service, great ambience. I highly recommend it for either a nice, lazy brunch with friends and/or a romantic dinner with your partner. The interiors are beautiful and the staff is friendly. And for some added eye candy, the head chef is gorgeous :)

    Had lunch with a co-worker. Many times when passing by I'd smelled hamburger grease and don't know why we went, except that we were curious. The menu is limited, but that's common in DUMBO. I ordered a grilled cheese sandwich and my co-worker a hamburger. WE WAITED OVER TWENTY MINUTES FOR OUR FOOD, although there were only two other patrons there when we arrived at 12:15. The waitress was really lovely and gracious, but I couldn't see her anywhere all the time we were sitting there wondering what was the hold up. You'd think with the place smelling like hamburger and french fry grease that they'd be cooking! When the food finally arrived it was only o.k./good. (Sandwich messy, homemade chips not crisp.) Won't go again.

    Atrium is easily our favorite restaurant in Brooklyn. We have eaten here many times, and every time has been a wonderful experience. The menu is varied and well curated. Everything is perfectly prepared and presented. Try the grilled romaine, the salmon crudo or the charred asparagus; the ravioli is exquisite s are the duck, porkchop, fish of the day....For wine, trust Alex to suggest something for any budget. My only concern is that Atrium will become too popular. But it would not be fair to Alex, Leslie and chef Laurent, not to share our appreciation - they deserve the success that their growing popularity is bringing. We have often invited both out of town and local guests to dine at Atrium and they never fail to return on their own.

    We truly loved this restaurant! What a great find, we hope it becomes our go-to often. We were 'wowed' from the moment we sat down. The character and atmosphere of a place were really relaxing and inviting, we could even see the chefs at work in the open kitchen. The service was really attentive, knowledgeable and amiable. The wine list is very approachable and with some really great bottles! The Wine service was very good and with a lot of attention to detail. We really loved how the food and the wines worked really well together. We can't wait to dine at Atrium again.

    The roast chicken was delicious and staff were great - not trying to upsell us, very casual, just the right level of service. Not really a view from the downstairs part of the restaurant but still a nice environment. The bar's a bit small to have pre-dinner drinks if you're a big group

    Both the food and service were lacking. The dishes weren't bad but they weren't great either, with dessert being the least impressive of all. The wines by the glass all tasted as if they had been open for several days. While our waitress was great, the server was not. He was unfriendly and spilled some of our wine when clearing dishes but didn't even think to top it up.

    We brought some out of town friends to Atrium for a weeknight dinner. At first the service was friendly and accommodating but as the night unfolded the server became less equipped to handle our party of four adults and one child Everyone had their starter except my husband and when we flagged down the server to find out the status it was clear that they had forgotten about it. The clincher was that he served the appetizer as a side to his entree and acted like that was a totally normal thing to do. Not. If we hadn't been with friends we would have made a fuss but chose not to. Shame, because we liked the vibe and space and some of the food was pretty good.

    We made a reservation and specified that we had a stroller. They couldn't seat us with the stroller until 45 min after our reservation. They were nice, but c'mon. Also - as a vegetarian I have been forced to eat the EXACT SAME DISH all 3 times I've been there, since last October. This time the pasta was very bland. I can make bland pasta myself at home and it won't cost $18. Let's change up the menu.

    We had a reservation but wasn't seated for almost 20 minutes. (I've tried to have dinner here without a reservation in the past was turned away - pretty dismissively, I might add; the usual hostess isn't that warm/engaging). Once we were finally seated, we wanted to quickly order a couple of appetizers while we look over the menu - after all, we had already waited some time for our table and were starving! We were told that we had to order everything at once, and the server said that she'd come back later when we had decided.... And this was just the start. The overall feeling of the place is that service staff is really busy and just trying to get a job done - the kitchen isn't big enough for the number of tables they try to serve.

    My husband and I dined with another couple this past Friday, the space is very beautiful and we were promptly seated. Service was a bit uneven, we had two servers or possibly one of them was also the maitre D, it was unclear, who also took our oysters order but never inquired which type of oysters we wanted. It seemed like we might be asking too much when we asked to substitute sides (such as greens instead of potatoes with the rib-eye) but they begrudgingly accommodated us, and my girlfriend's duck was undercooked after she had specifically asked for that it be well done. It is quite pricey (2 courses and 1 glass of wine each set my husband and I back $160) so I think they need to make a few tweaks and it will be a gem.

    One of the best ambient restaurants in Dumbo, definitely a neighborhood gem. I was there for dinner with a group of 6 and they accommodated and tended to us very well. The service was friendly, attentive and patient. Lovely environment as always, and the food was good and appropriately portioned all round. We shared a beef tartare, which for some reason I remembered was tastier the last time I was there. They had changed the ingredients surrounding and within. It was a little disappointing but still delicious. My father had a medium rare ribeye, and although it was cooked perfectly, he preferred more thickness to the meat because it was quite thin. I, myself, had the smoked duck and it was simply amazing!

    We got in 15 minutes before opening at 11. Their door was open and so we walked in and were told to come back when they open in 15 minutes. But they did it in a rather like "can't be bothered way", and not like they really care for the clients. They could have kept the door closed, or maybe sat us at the bar (great way for great tip). And then they were very keen to rush our dining party of 4 out the door so as to clear the table and put more people in. Instead of basically passing by twice to take our plates...then dropping the bill on the table without asking if we want coffee or tea or anything. So really no real concern on their behalf for the customer, little mindfulness, or warmth in their reception...very self absorbed.

    Went here for my boyfriend's birthday on a Tuesday night - the bar area was packed from happy hour (oyster and cocktail specials), but the dining area was rather open as people with reservations hadn't arrived yet. We got a great seat under the beautiful plant wall and had a delicious meal. The chicken for two was amazing - perfectly cooked chicken breasts (no frills, just delicious) and a WONDERFUL truffled pot pie. The service was attentive, friendly, and not slow at all. Atrium is a great spot.

    Exceedingly impressed with the quality of food our first time here. The charred asparagus appetizer, the roast duck and the skate were outstanding. When we ordered oysters and pointed out a quite anemic showing in just one of the well fleet shells, the kitchen response was to send THREE more to us. What incredible graciousness and good business and superlative customer service. We were very impressed. Just be cautioned that the unique dessert Macallen Donuts have ++++citric acid in them that will zing you from the tartness. Those are not for everyone. But the creamy cheesecake like dessert was divine.
