About the restaurant
Under the renowned culinary leadership, Atlas brings a fresh and innovative approach to traditional cooking. Our menu is inspired by Chef Freddy Money’s career in some of Europe’s most prestigious kitchens. Each dish tells a story, and the menu takes you on a journey that focuses on ingredients, provenance, and texture, resulting in a powerful combination of wonderful and memorable food. Our restaurant doubles as a modern art gallery with emerald green walls covered in 20th-century art from some of the world’s most recognized artists, including Foujita, Chagall, Monet, Soutine, and Picasso. The artwork is part of the noted Lewis Collection, among the largest private art collections in the world, with each piece thoughtfully selected and carefully placed for guests to enjoy.

My wife and I came to Atlas for our 19th anniversary. I did a bunch of research on the best dining experiences in Atlanta and Atlas came up over and over. It did not disappoint, the food was everything we hoped and even exceeded our expectations. The wait staff did a fantastic job explaining each course and making us feel welcome which we appreciated because this was our first time at a restaurant. We were wonderfully pampered and would recommend this to anyone looking for a new dining experience.

We always like to seat inside away from the smoking area but for whatever reason sometimes we get someone sitting to the left side kind of patio but it’s still inside the tables at non smoking area. It’s discusting for us non smokers having to smell that cigarette (wasn’t hookah) from this woman sitting by herself close to our table.

Didn’t get to be seated on the rooftop although I booked the rooftop Mother’s Day brunch. But the food was good and we got to see the Mariachi band!

The food and service were great. We started with the 3 guac and 3 salsa appetizers. Everyone had a different margarita and enjoyed it. RJ and the rest of the wait staff could not have been more accommodating. See you next time!

Off the beaten path. Just a great choice. Come with an appetite because the portions are huge!!! We could have just settled for the appetizers, so much food and so good!! The wings were great, and the shrimp basket was some of the best!!! We had Blackened Salmon, Surf and Turf, and the whole Mediterranean Sea Bass!!! All entrées were cooked to perfection 👌🏿. Great friendly service. Can't remember the young lady's name, but she was very attentive. Huge mixed drinks. The parking is terrible, but there's parking about 30 ft from the restaurant. No military discount. One thing I hate is when a restaurant decides to take gratuity out for a party of three. I know people are cheap, but i tip huge. Then, I see an additional tip request. Too late!!!. I'll go back for the quality of food and service. If you're in Atlanta, make sure to add this restaurant to your list.
