Food quality and service both excellent. Tables little too crowded together. Timing of prix fixe dinner also excellent. Reputation well deserved.

My niece and I had a great lunch. Nice atmosphere, great service, and the ATH muscles were, as usual, delicious! It was a pleasant, relaxing lunch

I had dinner here with a friend on a Friday night. This place has a very cozy atmosphere and the staff are very attentive. The menu is small but wonderful. I wound up getting 3 dishes from their bites and appetizers section because I couldn't decide on just one thing. I ordered the butternut squash soup - delicious and hit the spot on a cold night. I also ordered the Txistorra (sauteed​ ​chorizo​ ​&​ ​shrimp,​ ​fingerling​ ​potatoes,​ ​mushrooms,​ ​jalapeno garlic-herb​ ​pan) - very tasty (close up of this dish is included in my review); and finally the Sprouts (roasted​ &​​ ​fried​ ​brussel​ ​sprouts,​ ​sesame​ ​seeds,​ ​thai​ ​chili​ ​sauce​) - fantastic and probably my favorite of the 3. That said, I would get them all again. My friend order the Barnegat Sea Scallops (with cauliflower/​ ​turnip​ ​puree,​ ​oyster​ ​mushroom fricassee,​ ​sage​ ​brown​ ​butter). I did not try her entree but she loved it. I highly recommend this restaurant but suggest making reservations if coming for dinner being that it is a small place.

The food is always amazing! If it is busy the service can be slow but it is always well worth the wait.

Service was not nearly as good as when under prior managment. Food was good, but the experience overall was average. Under the old owners it was obvious that the entire staff was happy, and it radiated throughout the restaurant.

As my wife and I were having our wine - before ordering anything - we were presented with the check - for a nearby table, and as she presented the check the lady asked "who's paying?" When dinner came, my entree had no grilled seasonal vegetables as the menu promised.

ATH has always been a special place for us, but we will be looking elslewhere from now on.

Food was excellent, plates cold although food was warm. Bread was cold, not just room temperature, but really cold. Service was good.

We have been going to ATH since the earliest days of the business. This is the first time going since the restaurant was sold to a new owner in the Speing 2017. I was very impressed. The food and service was every bit as good, even a touch better. This visit we had about five or six of the small plates and they were all great. We skipped entrees and dessert. Will will go back and try more dishes.
