Went to this restaurant during visit to University of Iowa. Food was fantastic. Would definitely recommend. This was in October and we were still able to sit outside on the patio. They had heaters and it was really a great experience. (Iowa City is tops in the food dept)

Great assortment of entrees. From v Creative burritos to daily specials. Mac & cheese is one of my favorites. Great for couples or groups.

Atlas has consistently stayed at the top of the IC restaurant heap. Try the mac and cheese! But you cant really go wrong with any of the dishes. Everything is pretty straightforward but with very nice ingredients and put together really well. Try VooDoo Shrimp as well!

I eat at Atlas several times a year and I love the food and love the service. I always get the same thing, though, so I can only comment on their salads and soups, which are really great! Great ambiance, too!!

We chose this place because of its location right downtown near the Pentacrest. We were delighted with the food and the drinks. The waitress and bar staff were excellent and were happy to create new martinis with us. I would recommend this highly.

The place is busy for lunch, so it's helpful to get a reservation. But if you're alone and don't mind sitting on the bar, it's quite an experience as well. The view outside from the bar is nice. The bartender's great. Had a mac and cheese, a stella, and a hot mocha. The mac and cheese was one of the... More

I've only had the Buffalo Chicken Burrito but it's so good I've never thought about getting anything else. It has a unique menu.

The Atlas is one of my favorite lunch spots in Iowa City. The food is always good ,and the service is friendly and reliable. The tomato bisque soup is one of my favorites.

Atlas is one of my favorite restaurants to visit! The menu has a variety of items to choose from and the food is fantastic, full of flavor as they use the finest and freshest locally grown organic ingredients! I've never had a bad meal here and the staff is always courteous and friendly!
