DONT BOOK THIS - it is shuttered. I advised Open Table to stop taking reservations- they said they would reach out to the restaurant and investigate.
I wish I would have looked at the other reviews warning me before we wasted several people’s time going there to find the doors locked.

The restaurant was closed and looked like it was out of business. You should think about removing them from Open Table. It’s kind of a bummer when you have a reservation, and the place is closed when you arrive.

Atticus is adorable. You walk in and feel as though you are dining in the mountains somewhere. Everything is wooden and calming. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. The cocktails were FANTASTIC. A little pricey, but worth it for sure. My friend and I shared the seared tuna appetizer and the spare ribs entree. It was not enough food for two people. However, for one person, this would have been the perfect portion (app & entree) to be full but not uncomfortably so. Everything was absolutely delicious. The spare rib reminded me a little more of pot roast than I wanted it to, but the sauce it was served in completely made up for a little dryness in the meat. I would go back!

Atticus went out of their way to accommodate my whimsical nature. I had reservations, arrived a bit early, ate and drank at the bar, and they still seated me after. Their service was amazing, food was delicious, wine selection was great. They were very accommodating to allergies / dietary needs.

We stopped at Atticus for dinner the other night. They were training staff and were very nice. No bread came out. Food was good The carbernaro was good and the cauliflower steak was good too. Banana cream pie so so. It was freezing in there though. They need to save money on air conditioning and turn that down. Made it very uncomfortable for us.

This was a terrible night out w/ friends. They had advertised an Argentinian Wine Dinner. When we arrived (for our 2 weeks reservations) they didn't know anything about the wine dinner, and certainly didn't tell us it had been called off. It will certainly be awhile until we go there again.

Loved the breakfast brussels and the recommendation to add an egg. And love that they don't overcharge for a mimosa. Our server also recommended mixing grapefruit and apple juice for my mimosa. Fun and delicious!
Great service, great food and a great price!

This is a frustrating restaurant for me and my wife. The food is always so good, but the service is always so terrible. It is right down the street from us, so we keep trying it, but they really need to get their stuff together on the service side. There is so much potential, but it is hard to recommend because of the incredibly slow service.

The place is decorated very uniquely and when our party of four walked in for our brunch reservation the table was waiting for us with a cute chalkboard sign with our name on it. Drink menu is a good one, my sister in law and I had bloody marys and they were delightful. The food was good as well. My only complaint is that the restaurant was nearly empty and we had ordered the grilled oysters to come out first as an app. The wait was long for the food and although they apologized they said the oysters would not be out first and came after the meal was brought out.

We went specifically for an item that we saw on the online menu and they didn’t have it on the menu when we arrived. I then picked a different item from the menu and was told they were not making that anymore. What I eventually ordered was fine but I was disappointed that my first two picks weren’t available.

The good - the corvina was cooked perfectly. Someone knows how to cook fish. First course broccoli was underseasoned and needed salt. (I am not normally a big salter.) Mussels were a little fishy, and no spoon was given for all the broth the mussels were served in. Fish was hot and well cooked but again underseasoned. Chocolate cake was disappointing and strawberry fluff type dessert was not impressive. We won't go back.

We were there on the 2nd night of Restaurant Week and I did not find, on Open Table, that they were part of Restaurant Week - at any rate, we just had a limited menu from which to choose so perhaps other options offered on their regular menu would be more to our liking. We did have some delicious appetizers!

I haven't been to this restaurant prior to this occasion. It just so happened to be during restaurant week. Our party had a 730pm reservation. One friend in our party was was gluten free for health reasons and vegetarian for personal reasons. This presented a definite challenge with the menu. We had wonderful starters of brussel sprouts and calamari. They were sold out of the main dish i had ordered so I had a different dish. My husband and I often share our main dishes but I didn't want any of his pork chop after the first bite. It was tough and not very flavorful. My friend didn't eat any of her main dish bc it was not palatable. Dessert was great.

Atticus never disappoints me in their special touches to make me feel welcome. The chalkboard of welcome was special. The chef has a varied menu making it easy to choose a meal.

The ambiance of Atticus is very nice. Since it is a small venue, the noise level made it pleasant to spend time with friends.

These idiots gave my table (reserved the week before) away on Valentine's day. After 20 minutes at the bar with no one trying to fix it, we left. Even the cocktail that my girlfriend ordered was too much to ask since they were out of bitters. We ended up going for burgers next door. Happy Valentines day, right? Maybe put more time into training your staff and less time lighting and decoration. Screw this place.

We dined on 2/14 and had Valentine's Day dinner menu. We started with an order of oysters on the half shell that was wonderful. When we got our table we had the 4 course V-Day dinner for two. The calamari app was wonderful. The blueberry salad was good but would have been great with fresh blueberries. The surf/turf was perfectly cooked and seasoned. We finished off with the desserts, the Strawberry Shortcake was a little dry but the Flourless Chocolate Cake was amazing. We are excited to go back and enjoy food off the regular menu.

The atmosphere was beautiful. Walking in is very awkward because nothing gives any indication as to whether guests should wait to be seated and there is no host stand. Service was courteous but also very slow and inattentive. My cocktail was fine but wasn't really worth the price. My friend and I both got the French Onion Soup, and it was terrible. The soup was lukewarm and had no flavor whatsoever. Based on that, I am not confident that I could order any of the seafood options and be assured that they would be food safe. It's such a pretty space, but there is no substance to it. I will not be returning, nor will I recommend it to anyone.
