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.

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 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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.
