The atmosphere didn't quite match the "boutique" style menu / food. We had a pasta dish, a pizza and a steak - the pasta and pizza were good and priced right the steak was overprized at $50 that came with no veggies or potato / pasta options just a steak on a plate. Also, drinks were way over priced, $18 for a 8 oz. glass of Pino Noir. Lastly, the website photos were not updated and when we showed them to our server she laughed "oh we have not had that for ages!". Time to update the site.
The food was seriously so good!! Every dish we had was amazing
Love this place. Great food, service and ambience.
Nice place with very friendly and helpful service. The pizza was very crisp and delicious - not too thin or too thick. Also enjoyed some vegetable side dishes that were fantastic. Great drinks!
Great meal - only reason for the 3 value rating was the $27 steak frites. Truffle jus was excellent, abut for the money. A small piece of less than tender steak just doesn’t feel good. Funnily - if it had been a larger or bette exit, I would have paid more and been happier.
I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner and the service we recieved from Sarah! Eric helped accommodate our last minute reservation increase which was very much appreciated. We will be back for sure! Food was delicious so good job kitchen!!
Celebrated a friends birthday and everything was great!
First visit and we will be back! The mussels were fantastic, the cheesecake was underwhelming and everything in between was great! There were many other menu items we want to try. Service was excellent, too.
Washrooms needed attention as the door was broken on one and wouldn’t close.
An absolute gem! I wish we would have gone sooner. We didn't have a bad dish and would have been happy to try them all.
Everything was incredible from the ambiance, service to the food! We will definitely be back and would highly recommend A1 to anyone.
Pretty good experience. Service was very slow, food took a long time, we were there for nearly 3 hours. Great menu but pricing is a little steep for what you get.
Great atmosphere and staff. Front of house a little unorganized but overall good.
We were helped by several very nice staff, including supporting us in choosing a delicious wine. We decided to share three different dishes and the first two (mussels and cauliflower) were delicious. The third pasta dish was a little lacking. Overly lemon flavoured with very little other flavour. I would definitely go back to try more of their dishes.
Chef‘s menu turned out to be an excellent choice along with the drink pairings. The The homemade pasta was excellent. We are on the patio which really enjoyed but the music was a little to be desired. It’s just a review open table
Amazing service, with a great overall vibe and delicious food!
Food was delicious!
On patio. Lots of street noise
2 out of the 3 dishes we ordered were extremely good (the gnocchi and the finnochio pizza). I liked the short ribs ok, but my 2 friends found them a bit bland. I recommend sharing dishes rather than ordering your own. We sat on the back patio and it was lovely and relatively quiet. The staff were friendly and the service was good.
Great service and ambience. Food was okay but some of it was cold and not exactly what I would consider to be a “filling” amount if you plan on eating family style and for the price.
Amazing service and delish food!!
Like always, great food and amazing service!
Great service and great food!! Can’t go wrong with a few house cocktails and the tuna crudo!!
A1 has gone blown my mind once again. I’ve been there 3 times now, and every time it has been just the best food. Every bite is so flavourful and delicious! I took my parents for the first time and they were amazed at how incredible the food was! Not 1 dish was so-so. They were all wow! The service is really good too. Everyone is so friendly! Love this place.
My first time at A1 Bodega & it won’t be my last. Low key vibe & simple food prepared perfectly. Bonus: easy on the wallet!
It was a really nice place and good food for happy hour
First time dining at A1 and we pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food.
The mussels with a side of sour dough bread was fantastic.
Loved our visit! We had the mushroom pizza, roasted cauliflower salad, and pistachio cheese cake: everything was delicious and freshly made.
Our servers were also very friendly and accommodating. Thank you!
Without a doubt, best service I’ve ever received. Food was delicious as well.
Really great attentive servers and amazing food!
We just went for cocktails but food on other tables around us looked and smelled amazing. Will be back for dinner soon!
I had made a table reso for 3 people (celebrating a birthday) for outdoor dining. When we arrived we were crammed into a 2 person outdoor spot but was told by the hostess that once a 3 person outdoor spot comes available, we’d be moved to it. But we never were moved the entirety of our dining experience! The food and drinks were great, but was extremely disappointed in the sitting situations when I had a reservation for a birthday. The hostess was very nice in apologizing for their overbooking of spots but still nothing was done about it.
Food was delicious. Came on a recommendation of the mushroom pappardelle and it did not let us down. The finnochio pizza is also a must. We were sat outside, which was great as it’s hothotHOT out but the benches are not that comfortable. Music was also a nice background ambience, we didn’t have to yell to have a conversation. And get the spicy margarita. I’ll be back!
Love the vibe and design! The food was wonderful but the drinks are pretty pricy and it added up quickly.
Had a great meal and great drinks with a few friends for a birthday dinner. It would be an ideal place for any occasion or just a casual night out. They have a nice patio in the back and added one to the front as well for outdoor dining restrictions. Staff were very kind and helpful and overall would recommend to anyone!
Place is relaxing and nice but food wise, nothing really special about it.
We booked a table when indoor dining was approved. When we arrived we were taken through the restaurant and I wondered where we were going. We were sat in a lovely back patio, sheltered, decorated and spacious.
Our server was fun and professional. The food is outstanding. Pizza and the short rib special. Good wine list and interesting cocktails.
An absolutely gorgeous evening on an even more beautiful back patio! The true hidden gem of the Beltline, can't say enough nice things. Food is fantastic, the value is very good, and the recommendations the servers make are wonderful and very helpful!
Food was great and the rear patio is well covered and heated.
Fantastic patio, amazing food and attentive service. Hidden gem. Highly recommend!
