We stopped here for lunch on our way through Iowa City. The food was amazing! We sat in the back room off the bar and it was pleasant. I had the Farm Plate Pilaf and it was a big plate of beautiful food! (Roasted Carrots, Beets and Mushrooms over grains and pasta with a Beet dressing and Fried Oyster Mushrooms)... More

This is a place with fine-dining prices, a mostly fine-dining menu, and some seating in the bar area that is too crowded and noisy. I wouldn't return during peak times. The menu is full of interesting-sounding dishes, but my experience with pretentious menus is that the food often sucks. I ordered the gourmet mac and cheese out of fear. It... More

Nice mid-market restaurant in the downtown area. Staff were friendly and a menu with plenty of options. Child friendly as well. Tables are a little close together but we still managed to get a pushchair next to the table.

We are accustomed to nice restaurants. For my husband's 61st birthday we went to the Atlas Grill, and unfortunately we were disappointed. Seating was in the basement next to the high chair storage area, with gnats on the menu. We had a rather expensive dinner, my husband getting the steak which was severely overly peppered which masked the steak flavor.... More

I liked that the menu had unique items on it . I had the half thai burrito and tomato basil soup. While I wouldn't go with that particular burrito again, it was definitely the best tomato soup I've had. Family loved the burgers.

We visited this past Saturday, around 5:30pm. Our group had reservations and our table in the back room was ready for us when we arrived. Our server was wonderful! She took very good care of our group. I ordered my old favorite, the Atlas Burger. Ordered it medium rare. And it was done up right. It was delicious as always.... More

Everyone hyped up this place for me, especially when they talked about their "famous" Buffalo chicken burritos. Fine, it's a cool concept but definitely not worth it. The other food was alright but nothing special.

I recently took 2 international visitors to Atlas and it was a good experience for all of us as we had a variety of burritos and crème brulee and chocolate cake. The service was very good and the food tasty. The international guests especially enjoyed the desets.

Background:On a Vermont to Mid West drive, we decided to stop over in Iowa City, Iowa. One of our daughter's professors recommended we eat at the Atlas World Grill and try the tomato bisque (soup). We're glad we did. Verdict: All of the food ranged from very good to world class, particularly the tomato bisque; it was creamy, with a... More
