I book Atla to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. At the time of the booking only 11am was available but I wrote to the restaurant to enquire about a later table - received 2 messages and an email from opentable to confirm our attendance but the different timing was never mentioned. To my surprise, when we arrive on Sat morning the host confirmed that our table was not until 12pm! Annoying, as we could have done what we planed to do if the amendment would have been confirmed before hand. Anyway, no mention of the birthday whatsoever...
We are sat outside as per our request and look forward to trying the food! Service was poor, the waiter that took care of us seemed to be annoyed and the coffee we order first thing only arrived after the food was cleared. The food was good but did not blow our mind like expected.
Dessert was served, it was delicious. Sadly not even a little candle offered to celebrate the birthday! I guess we can't expect that from every restaurant but if they know you are there to celebrate a special occasion, does it take much to make it special? At Atla it clearly does!

I have the great pleasure of being a frequent patron of ATLA since their early beginnings. I may have one bad service day, but I have never had a bad meal in the multiple times I go there for drinks or dinner. I especially enjoy sitting at the bar when my two favorite bartenders Felix and Javier are working. They are professional, courteous, and informative experts in Mezcals for me to taste and pair. This is truly one of my favorite restaurants in NYC.

The service was very good but the food was disappointing. This was my second visit to Atla and I will not return.
My bean tamal was cold when delivered. The server had the dish redone, but really it was lacking in flavor and certainly not the quality that I and my dining companions expect from Olvera. The shrimp soup was awful . It was very “fishy”, I could smell it across the table.
The salad was ok.
I’ve eaten at Cosme and at Pujol. Atla is a poor relative to those restaurants- and not inexpensive.

Go for the scene or to sit outside snd people watch but... I was excited to try Alta based on reviews. And, yes, the food was good. I’m not a big meal person but portions, of what the waiter told us were the bigger meals, were tapas sized. Cocktails, chosen off the menu, truly weren’t worth drinking. There aren’t a ton of tables outside, it was not too busy, and we still had to flag the waiter multiple times to put in our order (after 45 minutes), then again to pay, and he never stopped by in between. This used to be my neighborhood and I love it but there are much better choices. Very disappointing

I took my girlfriends for lunch last Friday. It was their first time and I spoke so highly about you. Our server was curt, rude and really ruined the lunch. Our lunch reservation was at noon and we sat outside. I have been to your place so many times and have had not only excellent food but excellent service too. This woman should not be dealing with the public. Too bad for you.

The consistency of the dishes has changed since my handful of visits last year. The duck wings were mushy and drenched in sauce. On my last time they were so perfectly crispy we had to order a second. Typically you can order anything off that menu and it is always beyond delicious. This time, we had a lot of hit or misses - especially that corn pancake. The only thing that remains consistent are the beverages and the tortillas. Those are always absolute perfection.

The food was absolutely delicious and after reading about Daniela Soto-Innes, I had to try it. I enjoyed every bite and the highlights to me were the Cecina, Scallions & Nopal and the Cauliflower Taco Al Pastor. I also had the dessert tamle and highly recommend. My only reason for not giving this experience 5 stars, the price compared to the portion size. The Cali Taco Al Pastor, for example, was around $14 for a single, large taco. I would have preferred to see that prepared as 3 smaller tacos and think $12 would be sufficient...the tamle was amazing, but $14 and about 3 bites. Cocktails were wayyyy too expensive to try ($17, for a margarita, even!), which might be a side effect of the location, so I opted to try one of their juices.
