Mediterranean

Located in downtown Minneapolis, Atlas Grill & Clubroom is one of the Twin Cities dining treasures. The Mediterranean influenced cuisine features signature fire roasted meats and seafood. The Star Tribune has called Atlas' food "out of this world". During the day, Atlas is a popular lunch destination. In the evening, Atlas becomes a venue for private parties and special events. Atlas' dining room features dark wood work with beautiful draperies and tropical fish tanks. The Atrium is more open and garden like surrounded by numerous plants and high glass ceilings. A full service bar with seating connects the two areas. Atlas Grill is a great location for corporate dinners, meetings, cocktail parties and wedding receptions. The banquet menu offers buffet, served and platter style dinner options.

One of our group had one of the fish specials which was delicious. The filet mignon was also done to perfection. Interesting cocktail menu and nice selection of wines.

                                                                We decided to try the Atlas Grill and Clubroom last week. The ambiance was decent and it was easy to have a conversation. The service was not great. It took 10 minutes after we sat down to get water and then the server stop by and gave us menus. I thought he was going to take our drink order but he said "I have to check on a table and I'll be right back." He showed up 15 minutes later to take our drink order and we were concerned it was going to take forever to get our order so we ordered dinner with our drinks. Our salad and soup showed up a few minutes later which was great, but within 2-3 minutes our main course showed up as well. They must have had some items pre-done. The food was decent, but it was warm and not hot. It certainly wasn't a terrible experience, but with all the great options in Mpls we won't be back. By the way, don't order a martini, it was not good, and when I asked for blue cheese olives the waiter looked at me like I had a third eyeball and said "we don't have those here".

                                                                Valentine's Day Dinner. Service was slow as it appeared they were understaffed as it was not too busy. Plenty of empty tables and no queue around 7PM when we were there. Waited for every element of the meal and had to flag someone down for the check. Scallops were so chewy they needed knife to be cut. Sauce served with was very watery and did not congeal to the scallops as you would like. Potatoes were fine and vegetables were ok. Seafood soup appetizer was the best part of the meal. Other dish was the salmon which had been overcooked. Pretty disappointing for a nicer restaurant. Carpet in main dining area needs deep clean or replacement.

The food is familiar enough for those who want standard fare, but there is enough on the menu to please diners who want something out of the ordinary. The food is very good, and the service is excellent. Be sure to ask for the specials -- Atlas has very good specials.

Seems like a nice convenient place for lunch, but I’d only try it again for dinner on a Friday or Saturday.

                                                                Wasn't sure how to answer the first questions, because we didn't ever dine here. We received our confirmed reservation on Open Table, but when we put the restaurant name into Google to get walking directions from our tour bus, it said the restaurant was currently CLOSED. Rather than walk the .6 of a mile, I called them first to confirm they were open. I received a vague voicemail message...didn't give hours of operation, didn't give directions, didn't even say if they were currently open or closed...just said "they couldn't come to the phone, please leave a message." I called a second time a few minutes later, and got the message again. At that point we walked in the opposite direction and found a table for dinner at another restaurant. We were in Minneapolis for the Final Four Men's basketball championship and we relied on Open Table to help us find a restaurant that we'd like and that could seat us with a reserved table on a weekend that drew over 72,000 people to the city for that weekend. I did leave a message on the restaurant's voicemail later in the evening, letting them know what our situation was and why we did not show up at our appointed time, but never even received a followup phone call or message from Open Table with any explanation, much less an apology. This has never happened to us on Open Table. Since we use Open Table mostly for dining in unfamiliar cities where we visit, I hope it doesn't happen again.

Both requests were fulfilled. The pasta special was excellent, and it was a special treat to get a complimentary piece of key lime pie with a birthday candle. Service was excellent as well.

And it wasn't any busier than when I've been there in the past. I definitely will come back but hope it's not the start of a trend toward slow business lunch service.

Everything else about the night was fantastic! There were six of us and everyone loved their food. The server was great as well, very attentive and gave good advice. I have been to Atlas a few times and the seating in the restaurant itself is much better than the atrium. I have never had a less than delicious meal there and the service has always been excellent!
