We hoped to add a new neighborhood restaurant to our routine and had heard good things. We arrived 1 minute prior to our 8:15 pm reservation and were told that the people at our table had paid but we’re still at the table and we would be seated any minute. There was no space to stand and no seats except at the bar. After checking with the hostess we took the two seats at the bar.

The bartender asked if he could get us anything and we told him no because they told us we would be seated any minute.

30 minutes into our wait, I remembered I left my phone in the car, and leaving my jacket in my chair, I ran out to get it.

On my way back in the door I met my very upset husband who explained he had been told to vacate our seats at the bar so some recently arriving customers could sit in them and eat. He said he wasn’t ready to leave until our table was ready which should be any minute since it was now 8:45 and they had told us it would be any minute at 8:15 pm. The bartender insisted we leave the bar so my husband chose to leave altogether in order to avoid continued harassment.

Somehow a manager got wind of the situation and to her credit she followed us out to the parking lot saying that was right to treat us that way and apologizing.

It was too late for us. It’s been a long time since we have been treated like that. In truth I can empathize with the situation, but not the bartender’s way of handling it. Why wouldn’t he have mentioned it to the manager who could have approached the table and asked if they needed anything else?

Then she could have handled the situation appropriately and I could have tried their food?

I did not want to rate the food one star in this rating, but I could not have done the review without a food rating.

Hope you have better luck than we did if you plan to eat at Secreto.

The food was seasonal and savory, and the signature cocktails were delicious. Couple that with excellent service, and you’ve got a great local option! Beautiful bar and larger tables for groups, too.

My friend and I were celebrating our birthdays. Sebastian (our server) made our experience so fun and made us feel pampered and cared for. Some people have the true gift of service and he is one of them.

I took clients out for dinner, and the food and drinks were great. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The pork belly and fried green tomatoes apps were delicious. The scallops and fried chicken were awesome. Definitely will go there again.

These folks got it going. They know how to run a good restaurant. To wit, reservations kept, excellent services, good food.

I would be happier if the noise level was lower. The room is all hard surfaces. A few absorbing items might make a great difference.

This was our first time to the restaurant and we were impressed with the food, service and friendly atmosphere. I had the fried chicken and I have to say the taste exceeded my expectations. The gravy on the chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans added to a delicious dimension to the food. You won’t be sorry with this choice. Another member in our party had the pork chop and it was equally tasty. A must have is the crab bisque-the red peppers make the soup different from the norm. Last, save room for dessert - the carrot cake is delicious and very different. Believe me you won’t be sorry. Can’t wait to go back. Nice job creating a lasting impression! 👏👏🙌

This is our favorite local restaurant. The menu isn’t extensive, but it’s all good! Servings are perfect portions, so you don’t leave hungry. The burrata appetizer is the best! Also love the crab cake. Excellent barrel-aged cocktails. And - Sebastian is our favorite waiter!

I would say this gem is one of Alpharetta's best kept secrets but given how busy they are I do not think it is much of a secret. We first dined here almost a year ago, when we were not living in Alpharetta, and booked this visit thinking we were trying something new! As we pulled into the parking lot, we said to ourselves, "Why have we not been back here, this place was awesome."

The service is spectacular. They entire team is very tuned in to the details of the experience. Even with a full restaurant, great attention to the experience's every detail is made by the whole FOH and BOH team.

Food is exceptional. It is creative, it is fresh and it is inspired for sure.

Great atmosphere - nice but still has a bar and a couple t.v.'s. Great service - Jonathan was excellent. Great food - my wife and I absolutely loved our choices. Small menu and if the others are half as good as what we ordered (shrimp and grits and fried chicken) then this place is definitely worth the visit. Only wish I lived closer to eat here more often.
