A promising setting, with solid drinks and appetizers, but the menu needs focus. The presentation is desultory – all our dishes were served "pile style" with a messy jumble of ingredients covering up the proteins. A lot of fried items and the palette tended to the over-sweet. A beautiful tomahawk pork chop was batter-fried like something at an Iowa state Fair, and the overall takeaway was carnivalesque. The dishes need more refinement and clarity to balance what could otherwise be a nice setting and dinner environment.
Atrium never disappoints - amazing food and incredible service. Highly recommend!!
Beautiful room--very cool location. Interesting food. Nice bar--a tad pricey
We celebrated a birthday at Atrium the other night, and we had a great evening. I would describe everything at Atrium as very contemporary, from the restaurant design down to the flavor profile and execution of the deserts. The Crispy Oyster Mushrooms and the Avocado Panna Cotta were both highlights. Will definitely be dining there again.
The atmosphere is gorgeous and the food was amazing!
Such great ambiance and food, only thing...I don’t think it’s air conditioned. We left after meal before getting another round of mimosas bc it was so warm.
The most positive thing I can say about this place is due to their choice of chairs, lighting, and plants. The space is very well designed. Also- those crispy oyster mushrooms are delicious. Everything else was meh, including the cocktails. We ordered the whole fish which was dry, the oysters were a bit chewy, the lettuce gems were bland. The server was over the top in our space and tried to take my half filled cocktail three times. It was difficult to enjoy the company of my date without having a server make sure my glass wasn't filled to the brim. I'm talking every sip they would reach over us , refill, and interrupt our conversation. I just feel like they were hovering over our table and it was a late reservation, so there was no need for it. If the food was tastier, the staff was a bit more chill.. it would have been a lovely date spot, but we won't be returning. (The host was nice though and gave us the option to wait for a better table)
The food was really good. I am not particularly a fan of Tapa style, as you tend to spend more and get less. But that's by no means the restaurants problem, it's just personal preference. The only real let down was the service. Although the server was nice and friendly, she just wasn't great at her job. She was just very slow, and I suspect may have forgotten to put in our orders. We had several items that did not arrive, so we had to inquire about them/remind her if them. When the items finally did arrive, we couldn't help but notice it would've been about the same amount of time if the orders had actually been put in to begin with. Overall good, the server just needed to step it up a bit.
We have not had such poorly crafted food in years! In addition, the host was rude, the banquette was dirty, the waitress told us we enjoyed the food. The pork chop was literally disgusting as was the cauliflower shawarma. We left 90% of what was served on our plates. Seriously not worth eating at a cost of nearly $100 per person! It is shocking and sad that so many resources were wasted on this chef.
Fooled by “five star” reviews (perhaps posted by family-friends), I left West Hollywood with some of the best restaurants like Cavatina, Republique, Osteriamozza, Tesse, Wally’s, to try this restaurant. What a disappointment!!! In & Out Burger beats this place hands down. You ask for any thing reasonable from a server at In & Out Burger and you get a smile and best effort to keep the customer satisfied. At this restaurant, you want to taste a couple of champagne to see which pone is dry to your tase and I got opinionated server who rather argue with the customer about “what is better”??? Acting arrogant, rude, disrespectful and confrontational with a customer is not the best way to run a business.
Not only I will never go back to this restaurant, but also I will do my best to educate the public about the terrible service provided here. I am sure the owner/manager will respond to me by “We are sorry and will make every effort to be better”, but training your server to be pleasant and teach them customer service may help not empty words as written in response to many of the negative reviews you get.
I left disgusted without ordering food to a better restaurant in WH/BH area and was not disappointed.
Everything was delicious! Some of the best cocktails I’ve had in LA. We had the Hamachi Crudo, the Uni Pasta (our favorite) and the steak! Oh and the passion fruit custard. Great service, the place is beautiful and much bigger than you’d expect!
Fabulous food. Each dish was unique and interesting. The artichoke marinated in Indian spice was the best I've ever had. Loved the space, the cosy booths and the cheerful service. Wish they'd open one on the Westside.
We had a great time. It is beautiful the staff was very pleasant and damn the food was good.
I have been thinking about when I can get back there ever since.
Only tried the vegetarian dishes. The Broccoli was the best followed by the cauliflower. Foccacio was just OK which many people seem to like. Initially kept waiting while others showed up. (I was a few minutes early, but front desk seemed distracted. Waitress did not seem able to answer some of our questions, just repeated what the menu said. Just seems to be the overly hip and happening place and I guess I felt out of place being an older adult. Was curious, but I doubt if I will revisit, unless menu updates regularly.
We had brunch at Atrium and really enjoyed the crispy potatoes, pozole and cornmeal waffle we ordered. The Verdejo was a great accompaniment, and service was friendly and on top of it. A couple areas where Atrium could improve: 1) the brunch menu was very heavy on pork, which we don't eat. More vegetarian options or a veg-friendly "bacon" would be appreciated. 2) the wine pours came up a little short for me for $15 glasses.
I had an absolute great time at Atrium. Staff was amazing. Hadnt had that kinds info service in a long time. Thank you for being a great restaurant and serving delicious food. My favorite was the biscuits.💛💛
Loved the whole fish entree, but when we asked if someone would debone it, the answer was "No." Instead, someone stood over us awkwardly explaining how we should do it. Ugh.
Such a fantastic restaurant. The food and the staff are both fantastic!
Bizarrely bad service from the hostess, manager, and especially the wait staff. This was my fourth time here. We waited fifteen minutes for our waitress to return to take our drinks order. We ordered the food with our waitress then too because we knew she wouldn't be back. And literally - she did not come back for the next hour, and even then I had to flag her down to ask for our bill. Each of the three of us received our food at different times. We were never asked if we wanted another round of drinks or anything else to eat. All strange because we were seated next to the wait staff station so we could see and hear what they were doing the entire time, and it wasn't waiting on their guests. The food is boring, not inventive, and, worst of all, not savory. The only good thing to report is that the bussers - both male and female - were quick and kind and should probably replace the current waiters, who were aloof, rude, and not helpful.
So glad we came across this beautiful hideaway in Los Feliz! We scored seating in one of those gorgeous high-backed booths just underneath the skylights in the main dining room but next time we'll give the patio a try. All of our encounters with the staff were warm and engaging from the manager welcoming guests at the entrance, to the bartender who took my order while waiting for a table. Speaking of drinks, they are beautifully done and delicious. All of us enjoyed our dishes and are already looking forward to returning to try more.
Mediocre food, inability to course selections out, everything basically came to the table at once, dry pork chop, no uni in overly salty pasta, dried out crudite. Way too over priced for the quality. Pretty but uninteresting room.
Good innovative food, on the pricey side
Atmosphere: Truly beautiful space, with decor done really well to nod to old Los Angeles while still maintaining a modern feel. Very, very loud however. Partially due to the nature of the space, but also loud. competing music probably exacerbating the issue.
Service: Very pleasant and fairly attentive, with our only complaint being that one of our dishes was never served and we had to bring it to the attention of the staff when the final entrees arrived (it was in the computer as having been served and would've been on the bill if we didn't mention it). A pretty small error in light of a generally very good service experience.
Food: We ordered the grilled focaccia, artichoke, crispy mushrooms, hanger steak, and uni cacio e pepe (and technically the hamachi crudo but that's the dish that didn't make it to the table). Everything we ate, with one exception, was somewhere between very good and exceptional. The hanger steak and artichoke were both really well prepared, wonderfully spiced and with great flavor from the (wood?) grill. The focaccia was a phenomenal piece of homemade bread, grilled to just burnt around the edges, glazed with a bit of honey, and served with a rich kimchi butter. The crispy mushrooms are a pretty triumphant, fun riff off of takeout chinese, specifically a sesame or General Tso's type chicken. As a devout carnivore, I can say without hesitation that this dish was better than any actual meat version I've ever had, and infinitely more subtle and complex (especially with the burst of acidity and freshness from the cucumbers). The only subpar dish we had was the cacio e pepe, which is unfortunate because I think the conception is great, it just didn't stick the landing with execution. Specifically, the pasta wasn't a spaghetti as advertised but a slightly overcooked angel hair that go lost in the sauce.
Overall: Very promising first visit, with a few hiccups. We'll definitely be back again, lots of promise here and overall a very nice meal.
Over priced small dishes and too sweet to my taste. Will not come again.
Food is way too salty and not a lot of selections from the menu.
They have friendly staffs but food is below average:
We sat outside on a beautiful day, so this review can't speak to the noise/ambience inside. But the few tables outside are lovely and even though they're outside, the service was excellent. My husband and I had cocktails, which were all delicious, and the happy hour menu includes great options -- not just well drinks and bar food, like a lot of happy hours around town. The raw oysters were fantastic, as were the crispy mushrooms and the BBQ-dusted fingerling potatoes. (All on the happy hour menu.) Also on HH were a paloma and old fashioned, which wasn't sweet or pre-mixed. Highly recommend both, as well as the New Romantic, a tart not overly sweet gin cocktail that is not on the HH menu but well-worth the splurge. We also had the charred snow peas (garlicky and citrusy), octopus al pastor tostada, and Patchamama pork chop katsu, which was gigantic. Everything was inventive and exceptional although my husband and I had mixed reviews on the octopus tostada. He loved it, I hated it. But I'm not a huge octopus fan. We definitely over ordered, but still got dessert: a passion fruit custard with lime sorbet. It was good, but didn't quite measure up to the rest of the meal, which was outstanding. I highly recommend this place and can't wait to go back.
A very handsome and vibrant space accessible down an open-air walkway, which also features dining. high ceilings, a skylight and bright colors offer a very pleasing environment. A somewhat limited menu of mainly shared plates nonetheless offers some very creative and flavorful options. Service was good, but as in many places of this kind, as it got busier, the din became oppressive.
Everything was great with the exception of how spicy the food was. Both my husband and I can tolerate a good amount of heat, but 3 of the 4 dishes we ordered were almost intolerable. Nothing on the menu description indicated this. We did let our server know as nicely as we could and she comp'd our dessert for good measure
THIS PLACE IS THE TOTAL PACKAGE.... From the stunning architecture and superb interior spacing and gorgeous interior design, to the friendly and very accommodating staff & THEN the incredibly creative AND absolutely DELICIOUS food (& signature cocktails) & breathtaking dessert, I honestly CANNOT wait to return with other friends!!! Fantastic evening...
Food was very good. Excellent service. Fun cocktails Great atmosphere
Lovely hidden gem in Silverlake. It was a little difficult to find because it is tucked in an alcove across from the Skylight theater. The food was delicious and the portions were decent. I really enjoyed my meal.
Some of the best brunch food I've had in awhile. Extraordinary biscuits!!
The food was incredible, however, it felt like a restaurant that was still working out a few service kinks. The food came out without any coursing (yes, I know it is shareable, but still, the meal shouldn't feel so rushed), the host was pretty thrown by asking to sit in a certain section instead of being seating next to the host when there were many open tables, and the servers dropping the food were not always sure if they were right. Also, there are no serving utensils provided which is okay for people who really don't mind sharing germs, but probably not optimal for most and the individual utensils aren't really sufficient for serving all the plates.
Claire was our server and she was fantastic. She knew the dinner menu and did a great job making fantastic recommendations. Will return for their brunch one day.
Very cute place, the food was just okay. I'd go back and maybe order something different.
Great space and food! We really enjoyed every aspect of our brunch especially sitting by the tree as well as the drinks and amazing food. Our waiter was great as well and we appreciated his knowledge of the menu as well as his feedback.
We were however, first disappointed the hostess sat us by the back door area by the work station while there were other seats. We asked her if we can have another seat and she told us that the door is not being used, however, unless it’s the last seat at a restaurant, no one wants to sit by the work station where you see dishes, utensils and employees walking back and forth.
We were really surprised the hostess sat us there first when it’s a higher quality restaurant where people go for higher quality service. I hope this does not happen to your other patrons in the future! Thank you!
Traveled to LA for my boyfriends 40th and chose Atrium for his birthday dinner. The ambiance, drinks and service were on point. It seemed as though our only regret was not ordering the skirt steak, we opted instead for the pork chop. We weren’t really anticipating that the entire pork chop was battered in a heavy corn meal and panko and deep fried whole. Everything else, even the dessert were on par.
Kind of silly that as their birthday treat offering they brought us a shadow box full of shiny crystals and lights and gave us a succulent. We chuckled about how extra that was. Overall though, success. Thanks for a good dinner.
Very well thought out. Delicious meal. And they gave me a small succulent to take home as a birthday gift!
This place is such a gem; Los Feliz absolutely needed some new options and atrium fits right in! Everything is always delicious and expertly prepared. A fast favorite.
Great in all respects but the wine list is weak throughout. Only one Champagne (at $350) and needs more depth in reds and whites.
