Great restaurant - fresh food and good service

Had lunch at Atmosphere, and liked it so much we returned for dinner the next night. The food is primarily local, very fresh and well prepared. Lots of gluten-free options. We enjoyed the Club Sandwich on gluten-free, the pear salad and then for dinner the Beef Bourguignon [also gluten-free... read more

Dined here with friends recently. Everyone ordered something different. Everyone very much enjoyed their meals. Pizza has a very crispy crust (exactly how I prefer it!) I ordered the Beef Bourguignon. Delicious!!!!! Wait staff very knowledgeable about the menu and the ingredients. Very attentive without hovering. Desserts (made in-house) were devoured and pronounced delectable. Good quantity of food. Prices are... More

Very nice "atmosphere" indeed. Food is obviously freshly prepared. Servers attentive and friendly. A definite must when you're in downtown Guelph.

We started off with absinthe; never had it before. What a shock! It was bright blue, and came with a slotted spoon and a sugar cube. The waiter told us to dip the sugar cube into the absinthe, then he lit it on fire and told us to let it caramelise for about a minute before dropping it into the... More

We love this place. great spot for a cocktails and apps, lunch or lovely dinner. Their thin crust pizzas are great value, they take salads pretty seriously too. Dinner entrees are sure to please and there's always a vegetarian option.

Our first time at this restaurant - and a very good choice, thanks to Trip Advisor. We started by splitting a Caesar salad, which was more than adequate in size for two people. It was not the normal run of the mill bottled dressing, but had a nice nip to it, which was much appreciated. We both ordered the beef... More

Venue is small, in the middle of Guelph, the wine was fabulous and the Coq au Vin and the Pot au Fue were so tasty. The dessert was decedent, the wait staff were attentive, but not pushy. We had a lovely... More

We decided to go last minute on a Saturday night. The staff were fantastic, offering recommendations on the food & wine. The food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, it's a little hidden gem in Guelph

Recently had dinner here with friends. I ordered a thin crust pizza and a side salad; both of which were very good. They serve local micro brewery beer and wine in addition to having a bar. My wife and I also shared a dessert which was excellent. Our waitress was great. The restaurant is long and narrow. Recommendation is to... More

Atmosphere is located across from Guelph city hall. They serve delicious pizzas and salads, and have a complete menu of other delicious foods. A good selection of wines and they make many types of cocktails. Get a table near the front of the restaurant. If they try to place you at the very back, decline and come back another time.... More
