So yummy! Our new favorite place. They’re charcuterie board, crab cake, and fried chicken were amazing. We also really enjoyed their drink selection.

Very small menu... Didn’t feel over whelming when eating there. Waitress was AMAZING and helpful. I loved how the food tasted and would eat there again once I come back to the area!

Absolutely one of the best places for a unique twist on Southern standards. You must try the braised greens, fried chicken and if you go on Sundays for brunch - the shrimp & grits! Fabulous!

Secreto is one of the very few overall consistent restaurants in Atlanta. I frequent the Brookhaven location, The food, service, and cleanliness is always wonderful and consistent.

Went for brunch. Compelling menu, excellent attentive but not intrusive service. Chef came out and checked on us. Going back for brunch next week to celebrate a birthday.

Good experience. Food was not as seasoned as I expected for a southern cuisine. However, selection and service were great. Nice portions and definitely great value. Would try again and see if better seasoned meals are on the menu.

I am a frequent patron at Secreto. I have never been disappointed. From the moment I entered the restaurant, I felt welcomed. The entire wait staff is always pleasant, helpful and accommodating. Chef Boyd is amazing and his personality is truly one of a kind, AWESOME!

The server was nice, but distracted at times. The location and restaurant were overall great, but the portion sizes could have been a bit bigger. I am open to trying it again.

Our meal, start to finish, was fantastic. The cocktails were delicious and creative (try the Southern Passion). The shrimp and grits; and bourbon-glazed shrimp were both thoroughly enjoyed. The waiter was attentive and helpful. We were also comp'd glasses of sparkling wine to toast our anniversary. We will be back to try more apps and entrees.

The food is good, and they are consistent. We’ve had good service every time we’ve been here though. The value is not great, and they charged us $3 to split soup between my wife and me. We didn’t ask them to do that and would have been perfectly content with an extra spoon. Would have been a higher rating without the petty charge.

While the food was good, it’s overpriced. $34 for 3 scallops with no bread served or salad is a bit much.

We were here on a super foggy evening, and it shows a lot about this restaurant that even in miserable weather, business was quite full. Our server was fantastic. She provided excellent drink and food recommendations, checked on us just the right amount, and provided some much needed laughter for our group of 4. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back again.

The special that night was a meatloaf and my husband was in heaven. I told him he could not lick the plate! It was my son's birthday and we had a wonderful time. Wait staff was very attentive and knowledgeable.
We tried a variety of entrees and they were all wonderful and portions were well done. I would highly recommend Secreto if you want creative comfort food and a nice ambiance.

Very good food and a very knowledgeable waiter. He helped guide us through information for our first visit to Secreto. Fried chicken and porkchop was excellent. The carrot cake lived up to rave reviews from open table dinners. We will be back.

Although the food was good we were disappointed that we were charged $3.00 to split an $8.00 wedge salad. If we had known there would be a charge, we would have split it ourselves.
