Diner Reviews
  • "Menu is great , food very healthy and tasty. Ideal place for before or after a visit to Arts Center, especially if using MARTA. Service great but food prep for simple lunch took 30min... Seemed a little long. Pre-theater is diff though"

  • "Great food, great location for your visit to the Atlanta Symphony, High Museum or Alliance Theatre. Modern interior is a little stark - white and glass. Brunch menu is very limited."

  • "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."

  • "The flatbread was burnt, but otherwise tasty. Scallops were good. Asked for salad first then flatbread, got them in reverse order. Waiter not that attentive."

  • "This is certainly a convenient place to eat before going to the symphony or a play at the Woodruff Center. The fine was quite good and the ambience very pleasant. Will definitely eat here again."

  • "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. "

  • "Very good food with pleasant service. You can't best it before a show. "

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "A treat of a place for lunch before a okay or symphony or cruising the High! Eclectic delights well prepared and presented. Speedy too! "

  • "I read all of the reviews and there were several unfavorable ones, my wife and I had a great meal, the service was good and we were in and out in 45 minutes to see the Symphony...will go again!"

  • "This is the forth time we have fined here. It is the first disappointing experience. At 6:20pm. The restaurant was full. We finally got our food at 7:05. The show began at 7:30. The tuna patty I received was dry and flavorless"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "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 a perfect place for theater night! Food was very good and reasonably priced. I had a burger which was juicy and flavorful. Other dishes quite good as well. Their outside seating area was lovely. We've been there before and will definitely go back."

  • "It was a nice dinner in a wonderfully convenient location for before the symphony or a play. The waiter was especially helpful."

  • "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."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "This pleasant restaurant at the Woodruff Art Center is a perfect place for a before-theatre/symphony light supper. It is well-priced to make a full evening. It has a very good bar and wine list."

  • "Popular spot before a concert or play at the High. Only took 45 minutes to get in and out with excellent, attentive servers and very good food."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "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,"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "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."

  • "Food is excellent. Everything is a la carte. Very convenient. Reasonably priced."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "We've been several times to Table 1280, enough that the very competent staff greeted us with "Welcome back." Our most recent visit was for brunch on Sunday. I would go for the cheese grits alone, they're so good, but to keep me from embarrassing myself, the kitchen prepared a creamy spinach, feta, and ham omelet to accompany a delicious salmon filet with lobster sauce and a roasted pork loin with a port wine sauce. I have yet to try everything, like the red velvet pancakes, or all the pastries, but they look good. There are salads, like beets and arugula, or a Caesar, and a soup and an assortment of breads. We frequently use Table 1280 as a prelude to a visit to the High Museum across the campus or a concert at Symphony Hall. You should too"

  • "My wife and I came into Table 1280 before the Chris Botti Concert for dinner. I have been an usher at the ASO for almost 5 seasons and never eaten here. I have been asked several times if the food was good but could not answer. I now can and will recommend it to patrons. If you are in need of business I would recommend your work with all the ushers that work for free, they would be your best advertisement."

  • "This is for that very tasty, convenient meal before the symphony or theater at Woodruff Arts Center. Or after you enjoy the High Museum. Good food, nice selection, very reasonable price in a good atmosphere. We will do this again!"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "We arrived early for our dinner reservation and were greeted by very friendly staff. Our waiter was delightful and encouraged us to get our order in to beat the rush to performances at the Woodruff Arts Center. My scallops were delicious and my husbands steak frittes were also veery good and reasonably priced for such a fine restaurant. We enjoyed our meal and the service and will definitely chose this restaurant every time we attend a performance."
