Table 1280 reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Table 1280 depends too much
    foodseekerVIP
    Dined on 7/21/2012
    Table 1280 depends too much on the Woodruff Art Center and High Museum to provide customers. We ate lunch there after visiting an exhibit at the High and we were almost alone in the place. The food, however, was quite good and presented and served well. Perhaps for the evening/symphony crowd the business picks up -- if not I wouldn't expect to see Table 1280 open much longer. Atlanta has a plethora of good restaurants that are not so far off the "beaten path."

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 7/6/2012
    All of us ordered the salmon salad for $15 and it appeared as though as filets had been overcooked and dry. There was very few people in the restaurant do the holiday week and it appeared as though the filets had been pre-cooked or reheated from the previous day. I also had the cool peach-ginger soup de jour. It wasn't bad, but much like a sweet smoothie. Overall, I've always thought this restaurant was over priced. I only patronize them because its convenient to our office, but will probably not go back.

    The food was okay but our waiter was outstanding. He seemed to know exactly when to appear at our table and refill glasses or take somthing away. Wonderful young man. He made up for the lack luster food. The location was very convenient - we had a theatre performance immediately following unch. I would give it a second try to see if I chose poorly off the menu.

    Table 1280 never disappoints. The cuisine and service are excellent, and the setting could not be more perfect. Having a meal there combines beautifully with a any of the venues at Woodruff - today it was a museum visit.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2003VIP
    Dined on 6/15/2012
    After attending Jazz at the High we thought we'd have a nice dinner at 1280. We were completely disappointed to find out that at 7:30 on a Friday night all they offer is their lunch menu. So we had a glass of wine and left.

    Dined on 6/14/2012
    I enjoyed Table 1280 for the first time on May 4 before the Alliance play.The menu, the food, the service were all fabulous! I was excited to take friends June 14 for dinner before "The Screwtape Letters".When I surveyed the menu I hoped we'd been given the lunch menu by mistake.Unfortunately, the restaurant drops its dinner menu after the symphony season ends.The food was fine for lunch or a very casual dinner, but not special enough for an "evening out". And, our server was very nice, but his service was slow and full of mistakes.He offered us a "special second drink" (2 wines, 1 beer) after all our waiting,and, I thought, clearly implied the drinks were complimentary. He LATER returns with 3 wines and we were charged.So disappointed!

    While food and service are consistently excellent, the menu is very limited on evenings of Symphony concerts, even though the restaurant often is far from full. Other restaurants in the Woodruff Center area serve full menus at such times. It is hard to understand why Table 1280 is unable to.

    Table 1280 is very nice for dinner before an ASO concert or an Alliance play. It's excellent for a light lunch while enjoying a High Museum special exhibit, expecially if your High membership entitles you to a discount. However since they've raised their prices, I wouldn't otherwise recommend it.

    Several of us had salads and they seemed straight out of a bag...some were even still sandy. The different kinds of lettuce mentioned in the menu descriptions were not what was on the plate. Pastries seemed right out of the freezer. This was on a Sunday, so maybe on a different day things would be better. Our servers were very nice.

    Usually eat at Table 1280 before an event at the ATL Symphony or High Museum since it is very conveniently located for both. That said, food always pleases although at a relatively high price (paying for convenient location, I suppose). Wine list is good, but very overpriced. Service is very good, but slows down as the place fills ups.

    Didn't honor our request for a specific table, though the request was telephoned to them & mentioned when making the reservation thru Open Table more than a week in advance. This the 2nd time they've ignored that request. Though I have been a regular, the hostess & the "manager" were unapologetic. The menu has been extremely reduced, now offering only 4 entree choices. They've cut their excellent chicken dishes & also the chopped steak.

    We have been to Table 1280 several times before concerts at ASO and always liked it, though usually it gets crowded and busy before performances, sometimes we had to wait a bit without reservation. Last night we booked a table outside early so we can enjoy dinner longer. First, we got great service by Jordan, he was just perfect - quick, polite, funny, and knowledgeable. After his recommendation we got arugula salad with mint, water melon and feta cheese, followed by lamb, and finished with strawberry panna cotta. Everything was absolutely delicious; you could hardly find better food in any other top restaurant in Atlanta. Top scores to the chef, too. Very highly recommended. Go earlier and enjoy!
