We ate here tonight, for dinner. The food was above average. The fries were battered, and would have been better fresh. Being battered made them not Gluten Free. They needed a Gluten Free menu. The desert was the highlight, but should have been bigger for...More

My husband and I went here for brunch last Sunday, December 10, and were quite disappointed. The restaurant advertises serving local and organic food.

There wasn't a lot to choose from on the menu--had a buffalo chicken "burrito" that was good. Friend had a Casear salad that looked interesting but challenging to eat. Service was good.

I started with the Shrimp Voodoo there one late Thursday evening, served by a tattooed guy with a stegosaurus haircut, and it was a bubbly, crunchy revelation. The delivered version was a pop song in a mosh pit, a stage dive with nothing to break...More

We were a party of six. Because we were such a large group, we were put in the back room next to the bathroom. We ordered two appetizers, the Burrata (which the women liked) and an order of Chips and Salsa. The chips and salsa...More

Didn't really enjoy the experience. Food was average at best and tried their "specialty" burrito but wasn't impressed. Probably not going again...

Agree with those who answered above....I have found the Atlas to be extremely accommodating, and I cannot imagine they would not oblige. A gift card to Atlas....wonderful gift!

Yes, they do! There are a couple of dishes that can't be made gluten-free, like the Mac and Cheese, but most of their menu items can indeed to be made, or are already, gluten free. Ask when you arrive and they will give you... More
