Secreto Southern Kitchen - Alpharetta
Food was astonishingly good. We had been to Secreto several times in the past, but the experience the day after Valentine's Day this year was far above anything previous. For your reference, out menu included roasted red pepper & crab bisque, pork belly appetizer, bang-bang shrimp, and the black grouper special (remainder of supply from Valentine prix fixe menu). Compliments to all concerned,
including our server and the chef, who visited our table. Our to-go dessert was carrot cake, complete with preparation instructions. This place is a gem -- fortunate to have in the Alpha/Johns Creek area.
First time being to eat here food was excellent I had previously been here for DoorDash and the service was very good to I had to return to dine in. Hands down one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a while.
Valentine’s dinner with my hubby. What an absolute delight it was. Everything was superb!!!
Secreto Southern Kitchen is my new FAVORITE restaurant! My husband and I went for Valentine's Day. It was my first visit. Everything about it was super fabulous A+++++. It's an excellent date night location. Very nice, comfortable, clean, with good vibes. The food was exceptional!!! The staff was very professional, pleasant, and accommodating. Everyone who worked there was so nice and showed genuine effort to make sure everything was just perfect! For my 1st course, I ordered the Iceberg Wedge Salad. I was totally surprised when it arrived with an extra plate that had a red rose on it next to a ring box displaying a breathtaking 4 ct diamond engagement ring and wedding band set! This was a pre-arranged Valentine's Day surprise from my husband. We've been married 5 years already, but this was a beautiful major upgrade! Everyone was in on the plan. It was wonderful!!! My 2nd course was Chef Boyd's Southern Fried Chicken with Buttermilk Mash, Garlic Green Beans, Smoked Bacon Jalapeño Gravy. So extremely delicious!!!!! My drink was Southern Passion- Vodka, Orange Liqueur, Falernum, Passion Fruit, Agave, Lime, which was delightfully fruity and arrived with a beautiful flower on the top. For dessert, I had Red Velvet Cheesecake, which was surprisingly light and yummy. Overall I give Secreto Southern Kitchen 5 Stars! I highly recommend. EVERYTHING was perfect! Can't wait to go back.
I would not recommend because it’s over priced for what you receive
We would invite you to come back on a regular night where our only option is not a prix fixe menu. To accommodate all of the Valentine's reservations we only offered the 4 course prix fixe menu Friday. We overall have a high rating even on value.
Our server Mel was just a darling! Very nice experience. The wine pairing was nice however each glass came well after the dish it was to be paired with. My carrot cake was amazing! The blue point oysters were to die for!!! I wish they had those all the time! The experience was overall very pleasant! We will be back to experience their regular menu which looks killer!!!!
Food was awesome. Ambiance was nice. Great valentines date. The chef stopped by to check on us twice.
Great Valentine date night with the excellent wait staff and delicious dinner. Always a treat to eat at Secreto
Food was great as usual. Nice portions. Service was unusually slow ... very slow but I’ll back again.
Food was delicious and the service was good but we felt really rushed. Entrees came out before the food and we had 3 different people ask if they could take our plates before we were done eating. Entire meal literally took about 25 minutes.
Staff is excellent. Food was cooked perfectly. My wife and I had a great experience
The food is always outstanding! I enjoyed the salmon and was happy that they could substitute brussels for the collard greens, my favorite.
Wonderful food. Very nice folks.
Great food!! The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and is quiet enough to have conversations. The servers are pleasant and timely.
I always have a great experience at Secreto.
We always enjoy going to Secreto. The food is fabulous!
Great Service, My rack of Lamb was cooked perfectly. I look forward to eating here again.
My husband and I met another couple for dinner and everything was amazing. The bang bang shrimp and pork belly were melt in your mouth good. The fried chicken, pork chop, and shrimp and grits were everything we hoped they would be. Our server was knowledgeable and made great recommendations on cocktails. We will be back again!
I love this place and it's good to see it's busier each time I eat there. My only critique for this particular time was the lighting was almost too low to see the menu. Otherwise it was the same excellent experience we've had every time we've been there the last two years.
Great night, food, service etc. the only complaint was that it was too cold! They need to turn the heat up in the cold weather. No one likes to dine with their coat on!
This restaurant is 10 minutes from our house but we only just discovered it, and we are glad we did! We had a delightful experience. Our waiter was attentive and helped us navigate both the food and drink menu. The food selections made it challenging to land on a final selection. I had the pork chop and my husband had the fried chicken and we shared a side of Brussels sprouts. All was delectable! We enjoyed our entire evening and we will be back!
Great place! Can’t wait to go back!
Always have loved the food at this place. The staff is very friendly and attentive! They add a personal touch by remembering their customers and try to meet all their needs. They are known for their Southern Fried Chicken dish, but I always order their Red Fish. Only disappointment I had this time was that the fish came with mainly potatoes and 4 to 5 leaves of spinach. In the past the fish used to come with potatoes and brocollini which made it a more balanced meal. Overall a great place with great food and service.
Simply the best food around! Chef Boyd is consistently perfect! Thank you to all who help make every visit delicious!
Secreto is our “go-to” restaurant. The food is always consistent and delicious. Its great to see the same wait staff over and over. We always choose Secreto when taking family and friends to dinner.
Secreto’s is my go to restaurant, love the food and staff. I have never had a bad meal.
Jonathan the waiter was fantastic as usual!!!!
Our waiter was excellent and the food was delicious! My husband I celebrated a special night with my parents over dinner and there couldn’t have been a better place!
Secreto is one of my favorite restaurants. Saturday we went for my birthday. This was identified in the reservation. Past experiences, the restaurant acknowledged my birthday but this time nothing was said or done which was very disappointing. It's a great restaurant but the service wasn't what I expected especially with the restaurant have a few patrons due to the bad weather.
Great food and service. Music was too loud. Parking is a problem- limited spots for 2 restaurants. Recommend restaurant.
Thank you for the review! We are sorry the music was too loud - some of the playlists vary and we try to keep an ear on the volume. Feel free to ask your server or the hostess to turn it down next time you visit.
We love Secreto! Always great service and food!
Erin helped when I called and mentioned a special date with my wife. She sat us with Mel and our evening was set. Mel is the best. Super professional, fun and sweet. The food was excellent and even better than expected. We will be back again soon.
Thank you for a great experience 😊
We are so glad your special night was made even more special by our staff. We look forward to you joining us again in the near future!
Food, service, ambiance, and attentiveness was perfect. Food was very fairly priced. I’m not a wine connoisseur, but enjoy it with dinner once in awhile - bought a bottle with dinner ($50 to accompany my shrimp & grits was a bit pricey).
Will definitely add it to our “go to” list for future dinners!!
Thank you for the great review! We look forward to having you join us again!
Our NYE dinner was amazing and the service was great!
It’s in our neighborhood. Great food and the night we were there s fabulous server and had a great time with the table next to us.
Food and service was great!
EXCELLENT food, excellent service
Secreto NEVER disappoints! Sebastian was our server - attentive without smothering. Food was fantastic from the fried green tomatoes to the fried chicken to the seafood. Green beans were perfect.
We were there for 5 PM dinner on a Saturday and it was nice and quiet as the crowd had not filled in yet.
I really enjoyed Secreto Southern Kitchen as did my two guests. The menu offered excellent options for food and drink. I can personally recommend the shrimp and grits, salmon and pork chop. All had unique flavor twists that worked really well. Our server was Sebastian who was very helpful and did not try to rush us. The atmosphere felt cozy and not pretentious. I will be returning.
Excellent!! Loved the salmon dish👍
