The waiter was nice, but the service was very slow even though there were only a handful of additional customers. The food was edible, but not great. Food presentation was okay. The restaurant appeared clean, but nothing that makes a person want to come back again.

I visited this restaurant with a client while in Iowa City for business. It's in a convenient location in the "downtown" area. The service was pleasant and the beer/wine selection adequate. Food was low-end New American style. I would eat here again although it's nothing to get excited about.

After our party of five ordered a couple of appetizers and fiver different choices for dinner we all agreed that Atlas offered something for everyone and we all were "thumbs up" on our selections. It was a pleasant Friday night in July and we opted to be inside so as to not risk having flies around should we have chosen... More

Very good food with a little spin on traditional plates. Good service and has a nice atmosphere. Have been pleased each time we have visited.

Joined colleagues for dinner and had a blast. The food was to die for, we shared their famous Mac& Cheese, steak and fries. The service was impeccable ( thanks Joe).

Great food and atmosphere. Something a little different, but not too far out for the average diner. Just a nice twist on traditional menu items. Shrimp Voodoo is awesome!

I have eaten here on several occasions. I am also gluten free. Atlas always makes my burrito without the tortilla and leaves off the onion strings. It is still delicious and filling! The wait staff always seems to understand what gluten free is and is happy to accommodate.

I have had other food from Atlas over the years, and nothing stood out... but I just tried the Buffalo Chicken Burrito after years of hearing others rave about it... and I have one question for myself: why haven't I tried this dish sooner?!!! The Buffalo Chicken Burrito with ranch dressing and extra crispy onion rings is a great buy... More

While the level of service varies greatly depending on who is your waiter (college students all, hence the unpredictability and constantly changing FOH staff), the food never fails to satisfy and please. Excellent use of flavors and spices. Creative and well crafted cocktails. My dining companions had the salmon and pork tenderloin - both cleared their plates completely. I I... More

On making our trip across the country we had stopped in Iowa city Iowa for one night. We ask the front desk clerk at the hotel of a recommendation of good food with a bar in the local area. The Atlas was recommended. It is located in the downtown area near the university. At first we were skeptical since we... More
