    We enjoyed our evening at Table 1280. The service was excellent and the food was very good. The wine list was impressive. The atmosphere was nice, but not warm and cozy. It was perfect for a light meal before the symphony.

    The receptionist acted as if she didn't understand that Open Table has a special request section when making reservation. She completely missed my window table request and told me all window tables had been reserved by those calling in for reservation. She didn't seem very well trained so it is a management issue that she doesn't understand the reservation system. So the evening didn't start out great. The food was very good as was the service but I hate sitting so close to other tables and facing a boring wall for the entire dinner. No apology was ever offered. If you go there, make a phone reservation since they don't seem to honor special requests on Open Table.

    Had dinner at 1520 before the concert . It was convenient. The food was good but nothing special. We enjoyed being there and would go again if at the Arts Center. The bread pudding was not your traditional bread pudding. Not our style at all.

    The food was lukewarm at best and the quality was fair. The pork tenderloin was tough and the salmon lacked taste. The service was generally slow and we were not offered the prosecco, mimosa, or bloody Mary that was complimentary with the buffet when 12:30 pm arrived. Instead we were offered our check. After asking, we received our drink. Would not recommend.

    Service was very good. We had an early time 5:15 P.M. as we were going to hear the ASO. Ordered salmon medium well. Was a little dry. The salad really didn't have enough dressing, a little dry, also. Wine was ok. Espresso was not real hot. Got out in time for show as we planned. It is convenient to go to before the show. Other than that, just OK.

    Dined on 5/20/2014
    I attempted to dine at Table 1280 on a Tuesday evening early (6:30 p.m.); however, I left before dining. They were having some sort of service issue. I was seated, given a glass of water and waited for 10 minutes. No staff ever came to take a drink order, much less an order. I got up and left. I was concerned that three of the five tables I was close to were complaining about length of time in receiving orders. My one star above for food is simply because I never tasted anything.

    Took twenty minutes to get a first glass of wine. Entrees arrived before appetizer and had to be sent back. The A team must have been fully engaged at a big party at the High, and no one seemed really concerned about the service lapses although all was eventually corrected. It's so convenient for Symphony, etc., that we wish they would get their act together.

    We were the only people in the restaurant at 6:45 for dinner. The waiter was inexperienced and put in the wrong drink and food orders. During the meal he also mentioned the chef wasnt there. Who cooked our food? Asked if we wanted to see the dessert menu and came out with an example key line crumble. Anything else we asked? Yes, vanilla and chocolate ice cream! Very bizarre evening.

    We went to Table 1280 for Mothers Day brunch. The various food choices were exceptional, the service was excellent and the customer service attitude were outstanding. Attending a function at ASO, Alliance Theatre, or High Museum visit, Table 1280 would be a good designation for brunch, lunch or dinner. A+

    Elegant, spare, all-white spot for art lovers, visitors and midtown insiders. Service friendly and unhurried. If the main room is full, eat outside or somewhere else as it will be LOUD. Mind the salt. My lentil-and-bacon soup was the Great Salt Lake. Some locally sourced vendors as for instance beef from White Oak Pastures.

  • Brunch at Table 1280 - A Great Deal
    luv2eat
    Dined on 4/20/2014
    Brunch at Table 1280 is a great deal. We celebrated Easter here and were very pleased. For only around $24.95 you get a full buffet with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, made to order omelets, two carved meats, a chicken dish, a fish dish, veggies, salad, soup, great bread, and desserts and more. Included in the price is a bloody mary, mimosa or glass of prosecco. The restaurant is centrally located by the High Museum complex. It is bright with tall windows overlooking the museum plaza. Service can be a little spotty and slow but for the price, it's still worth the trip. When ordering an omelet, you fill out a piece of paper checking off the ingredients, and then give the paper to your server. Plan ahead as this can take some time.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 4/19/2014
    We had not been to Table 1280 in several years and we were pleasantly surprised by the tapas menu offered in addition to regular entrees. We decided to eat somewhere close to the Alliance Theater. I ordered the Ahi Tuna Salad which was outstanding and others in my group had the chicken Panini and the Veggie Panini and both were really great. Very generous portions. The service was great. If there was one downside, it is the noise level. Because of the high ceilings anf lack of carpets, the noise level is a bit loud but overall a great place for dinner and a glass of wine before the Theater. Great modern vibe. We definitely will go back soon.

    The 1280 is a great dining experience for the Arts Center crowd. The menu offers a nice selection of healthy and very well prepared food. The service is excellent and sensitive to the schedules most of the diners have at the Arts Center. The bar is also very inviting for those who simply want to visit before the show, concert or while visiting the museum. The 1280 is a nice addition to the Arts Center for those of us who want to enjoy a fine meal that is so conveniently located.

    This is the ideal place for dinner before a performance by the ASO or at the Alliance Theater. The menu is not huge but the food is very good. My wife had the salmon and I had the blackened scallops and both were excellent. The entrees have only minimal sides so we shared the mixed veg which was carrots, onions, and squash, not peas etc, and quite tasty. Service was outstanding. We will go often before a performance.

    I've watched this restaurant go through many different catering companies, etc, and because of the administration of the High Museum, which owns it, it is always at their whim. It is the ONLY place, really, to eat in the area, so people are stuck! The lunch we had ended up being a buffet, and it was okay. The problem is the service...well-intentioned but NOT TRAINED WELL. They are not at fault because they have obviously never been told...I saw no manager present and never have. The hostess has no warmth or charm or people skills and the mistakes made by servers are too numerous to go into...e.g. clearing plate and not refreshing silverware, not picking up dropped napkin, no refill of tea, no encouragement to get dessert, etc. ETC,

    Our food and service are always wonderful at Table 1280. We have had some challenging experiences with reserving a table on Open Table. We love Open Table and prefer to make our reservations on line instead of calling. We're not always confident that the reservation desk at Table 1280 will have a record of our reservations made on line at Open Table.
