Always enjoy dining here. Space is comfortable (love the fireplace) and the food is simple but satisfying. Oh and oysters - did I mention oysters?

Wonderful service and meal. The brussel sprouts (with Bacon) may be the best I️ ever had. I️ ordered the chef special (a chicken, duck, snail, over fried risotto contraption), and I️ absolutely loved loved loved it. Service was a little slow, but exceptional. Great “bang for the buck”.

Had a girls lunch here before the Junior League Holiday Mart. We had a wonderful lunch. The Brussels sprouts are amazing. A little too salty but still amazing. The Cesar salad was good and really enjoyed the French onion soup.

This is the worst restaurant I have ever been to in my 51 years. The cheese plate had only 2 cheeses and everything but the cheeses was stale. The meat was disgusting.

My wife ordered Mussels. Despite the large shells the meat was almost microscopic and strange looking in that they were stringy. Instead of bringing bread as asked with the mussels they brought fries and no spoon which is important with Mussels.

The meat on my burger had a strange texture and after two bites was scared the meat had gone bad and was cooked anyway. Given how so much of the food appeared to be old and stale I wouldn't have been surprised.

After two bites we asked for the check and paid out. Server never asked if there was a problem. Either she didn't care or had heard this so much she is numb or both.

We couldn't get out of there fast enough. It's a shame as the place had a cool ambiance but when the food and service is this bad nothing can save it.

It's been awhile since a restaurant has been so disappointing. The service was terrible---they were down a server---but she was doing her best, while the kitchen was slow. Patrons were making that awkward eye contact where they were looking around wondering if everyone else's food was so slow. I don't know what took so long to heat up Sysco truck breakfast potatoes? We tried several dishes and not a single one was memorable. My shrimp and grits were the worst I've ever had, anywhere. The bacon was the best part of the other dishes. What made it even worse is that you were paying $12-16 for small portions and the ingredients were poor quality. Even with a coupon, there was no value. This may be close to our house, but my family won't be back.

The food was good, not great, but the service was worse than ever before. Our friends’ food came out 10 minutes before ours, and 2 meals were missing essential elements (our server had to check the menu to see that we were missing the bacon). Our check to 30 minutes to arrive after we finished eating.
We have been here many times, and the service has never been bad. Don’t know whether we will go back. Disappointing.

A friend and I love to go to Atticus. It's small and intimate, especially with the fire going. The waiters are great, and the food is always fabulous. Because it was my birthday, we each got a complimentary half glass of proseco and (shared -my choice!) a piece of flourless chocolate cake. I felt so spoiled!! Thank you Atticus!!!

After driving past Atticus numerous times and making a mental note to try it out, I finally bid on a gift card at a fundraiser and used it to take my husband out for dinner and a movie. We were greeted warmly and given a choice table (it was early). Wait staff were attentive but not overbearing. The food was fresh, mostly locally sourced and very good, especially the stuffed roasted red peppers! Portions were just right and the presentation artful without being pretentious. We will return to check out lunch and brunch.

First off, there was no drink menu on our table, we had to ask for one and it took the waiter about 10min to get it to us... this is with only four other occupied tables in the restaurant. The drinks came out and they were good. Our mussel appetizer was also good, but the waiter spilled the steaming broth in my lap when he took the bowl away. He said he would bring me a wet napkin to clean it up but never did, and didn't even mention it. I'm pretty sure he forgot as soon as he walked away and I ended up having to take a napkin off the table next to us. Our entrees were ok... they were plated nicely but seasoned poorly, so they were visually appealing but very bland. Definitely not worth over $20/entree... these would need to be closer to $15 for me not to feel ripped off. I got the pork shank entree, and it came out with two pieces of corn on the cob... I've never had corn on the cob at a nice sit-down restaurant. Maybe a BBQ joint, but not a place that passes itself off as a nice restaurant. At least BBQ joints give you a pick to jab into the corn so you don't have to pick up with your hands and eat like a savage, but not at Atticus. I literally couldn't figure out how to eat it so I just left it on the plate. This is a mediocre restaurant that is masquerading as a nice restaurant, and I felt pretty ripped off in terms of food quality and service. There are plenty of other restaurants in Denver in this price range that have great food and service, so I definitely won't be giving it another chance or recommending it to anyone

Always great food at reasonable prices. Nice atmosphere, although a little loud. Wait staff is always knowledgeable and attentive. It's our go-to restaurant when we want consistently well-conceived and prepared food at reasonable prices. Plus, they have fresh oysters, usually several different varieties.

Atticus is a family favorite. The food and cocktails are always very good. The pricing on cocktails, especially the classics, have gotten a bit high. The website needs to be updated more frequently, the menu online does not match to what is available.

We liked the food; however, the portions were small. The mussels in a white wine garlic sauce were good, but I've had better in Denver. The sauce wasn't as flavorful as I thought it would be. The service was okay... took awhile for us to get drinks or for the waitress to come around to get our order. Afterwards, the food came out fairly quickly. Pork shank was tender but didn't have much flavor, while the carbonara was pretty tasty. We were promptly given our check, without even checking whether we'd like dessert (which we always like the option of at least looking at the dessert menu). We probably won't go back, as it was a bit expensive for the small portions.

We were very disappointed to find that after Open Table let us make a 1pm lunch reservation at Atticus, we got there to find a sign on the door that they were closed for lunch till 9/1 or some date in the future. Not blaming Open Table. They probably failed to update you. You need to check with them. We went to Rosedale next door. Not likely to want to give Atticus a try later. [Rosedale said they've had several people come to them w. reservations at Atticus, so it's not just us.]

Odd problems in the kitchen. We ordered 3 oysters in each of 3 sauces. They came out 4-4-1. My wife's pasta carbonara was so overcooked it was mush. We sent it back and the replacement came out even worse. Some of the food is absolutely delicious. The Brussels sprouts are the best anywhere for example. They are often out of a wine on the menu. We had similar problems the last time we were there. These are fixable problems, but they aren't being fixed.

We went there for a late lunch/brunch on a Sunday after volunteering nearby. The burrito was very generous but lacked protein. The lobster roll was on a Kaiser roll, nicely grilled and butter. There was one claw; the rest of the lobster was finely chopped. Kudos for not too much mayo but not much flavor either. The oysters were excellent.

Been here half dozen times...love the location near DU. But there is always something lacking. This time they did not have the bottle of wine we ordered. We spent more on a bottle that wasn't as good. Also, of the 3 dessert specials, 2 required ice cream: the apple pie ala mode, and the chocolate chip cookies with ice cream. We ordered the cookies and when the server brought them, she said they were out of ice cream! ( Also, a few were burned on the bottom. )Why can't they go across the street to Safeway and buy some? Or why not, when she brought the cookies, offer them on-the house? Food had generally been good, which is why we've come back, but the attention to details is lacking. I think we'll wait awhile and see if they can get it together.

"Atticus" is a totally cool name . . . as in Atticus Finch, the lawyer in "To Kill A Mockingbird." Named after the geographical area that included Athens and meaning "a man from Attica, Greece" the place is interesting in that it has, from what I can tell, not one friggin' thing to do with Greece; food or otherwise.

That aside, the place is a nice neighborhood eatery. Generally good modern American food with some creative twists. The place used to be "Fagan's" some 40 years ago when it was quite the place for DU students to go when their parents came into town, and the old sign "Fagan's" still appears in the dining area. Best seat in the house? Probably the one next to the fireplace. Best thing to eat, probably whatever their fresh fish is. Really liked their crisp skin presentation with gently cooked interior.

I have been to Atticus several times. It's usually a good neighborhood gem, although can be a bit inconsistent. On this particular occasion, when we arrived ( we had a reservation... it was busy... they seemed to be understaffed) it took about 5 min to be greeted. In the meantime, I saw the bartender making a cocktail that looked beautiful and delicious... so I went and asked him what it was. He promptly responded " a drink we are no longer making". Nice response.... we were then taken to our table a few minutes later where we waited 23 minutes before a server came over... at which point we had gotten up to leave.

With an abundance of great denver restaurants, it sure this one will be one I will visit again.
