Atmosphere Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Lovely Saturday evening with friends from Italy. Food got rave revues from all. We were seated at reserved time. Smaller room allowed for intimacy and conversation. Our server Chana was an engaging professional young woman who explained every question asked. She presented birthday guest a candled Creve brûlée that was unexpected and appreciated. This is a restaurant the truly desires title “neighborhood gem”.
I went here for V-day, it was a fixed menu and not that great. Ended up spending $220 dollars. I was stuck in a room with no windows and the sound just bounced around the room. There was no privacy for my conversation. I will never go back, it was supposed to be romantic instead it was an uncomfortable, hot, okay food, experience. Our waiter was nice though.
Would never come in for valentines. Worse greeting, seating, service. Waitress arguing to each other not wanting to take our table bc it was 930pm. Literally sat there for 10 min until being greeted. When greeted, wasn’t friendly at all. Will not recommend this place to anyone
I’m someone that never leaves reviews but had such a poor experience that felt I should - my husband and I went to atmosphere for a date night and I was super excited to try this romantic restaurant. From start to finish, the food was subpar. The goat cheese salad was just lettuce with a giant clumpy ball of brie wrapped with cold undercooked bacon. The mockfish seafood medley was lackluster in taste and my husbands steak was so salty he couldn’t even eat it. Lastly, our creme brûlée came out and it was ice cold...it’s bad when the best part of the meal is the wine. And all of this for $225! We will sadly not be going back to what seemed like such a nice neighborhood gem. Very disappointed.
We were on our Valentine date, and it was a very romantic place. Valet was quick and easy. We had a nice table near the front window. The menu was a special three course meal, and we adored the butternut squash soup and our desserts of creme brûlée and sherbet in vodka, but our seafood entree was very bland. The monkfish was flavorless, even though the shrimp, mussels, and clams were cooked perfectly.
I had been here for lunch a few times, and this was my first disappointment ever, so I will return!!!
Our wine from New Zealand was superb.
My husband and I were celebrating our 47th wedding anniversary and, as always, thought of Atmosphere. Everything was amazing. Our server, Ben, was great as usual and the food was delicious. The only problem was deciding which food to order since it is all so good.
You will always find me here on a Saturday night. I have to admit I read some of the recent 1 and 2 star ratings and have to wonder if they are from a competitor posing as a guest as I disagree with the findings. Chef Adam always amazes me with his meals. Never been disappointed. Hosts Christine and Jean Marc have to be proud of this establishment. Go for the food and make your own decisions! That being said; I must admit that the service was not as one would expect. Our server was not attentive. The table overlooked that (all made same remarks) as our meals made up for the service. Wine list is being updated and that is a bonus. Special shout out to Andrew who is a great bartender!
We totally enjoyed our evening at Atmosphere! Not only was the food excellent, the ambience was terrific. We shared a quiet corner table with another couple, allowing us to converse while enjoying a delectable, unhurried meal. Kudos to the chef and the staff for making our evening memorable for us and our guests. We will definitely be back!
The food quality has gone downhill. The escargot weren't as good as in the past, the salad greens looked old and beat up, the dressing wasn't particularly good, my husband's steak was tough...it was disappointing as the food has been really good over the years. The service was good.
I am here EVERY Saturday night! Enough said. Highly recommend stopping in and sampling what Chef Adam has in store for his specials. This past Saturday Chef Adam had Lamb as the special. OMG! Every week I think it was the best meal and every week I am wonderfully surprised. Already made my reservation for the following Saturday!!
As always, Atmosphere did not disappoint. I took my sister here for her birthday, and she had an amazing time. The service is impeccable and so friendly. The food is insurmountable and deliciously French. I had the trout this time and oh, boy, will I have a hard time choosing something else next time!! It was divine. Everything is a hit at Atmosphere. There is no wrong-doing. It's not possible to not enjoy every bit of the restaurant. I will always come back! I also think they have a wine special on Wednesdays!!
Hands down the best meal my husband and I have ever had! Friendly, professional staff and the food was far superior than any other place we've ever eaten. Our server, Velicia, was absolutely perfect, as was the meal. The escargot is amazing. My husband had the venison, and I had the scallops. We finished off the evening with creme brulee. Everything from the moment we stepped inside was absolutely divine.
My wife and I have come here for years and greatly enjoy the food and the staff that we interact with. The food was very good but the waiter we had was some what stiff. Nothing bad but very different from the typical staff we are accustomed to. We would still recommend this restaurant to others.
Were enjoying quiet meal in half-empty restaurant. They seated NOISY party of 5 next to us in small room. Got noisier when party of 5 learned restaurant had not prepared special meal ordered a week ago. Leaving, I complained to manager about seating that group next to us in small room. He said absolutely nothing - then followed me to parking lot and LOUDLY told me if I did not like the way he ran his restaurant, not to come back. Obviously I will not.
This was both disappointing and unpleasant. We have eaten there dozens of times over a decade or more, and while, in my opinion, the place has been in slow decline, this behavior by the owner manager was stunningly unacceptable.
