“Great spot - go during your bday month for a free meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Atlas is a great spot in downtown Iowa City. It's a decent atmosphere and they have a good menu. I had the shrimp appetizer as my meal the last time I was there and it was very tasty, I've also had one of their burritos and a bowl of the soup- everything was great and the price is pretty decent as well. Sign up on their website for a coupon for your birthday month and you can get ANY meal free in the month of your birthday- once I went with a friend and she got the Filet Mignon for FREE because it was her birthday month- very cool:) Most places just give you free dessert so that is nice.

“Solid menu with great specials”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Never had a bad meal at Atlas and the chef takes pride in bringing in big city NYC style specials to Iowa City. The outdoor seating in the summer is the perfect place to be on a nice day.

“Great Combinations, Great Menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

One of Iowa City's more upscale places, menu is updated regularly, great atmosphere and wonderful food. One of the best things on their menu has to be their mac and cheese - the mix of cheeses creates a great flavor. This trip, I had their black bean soup and one of their big burritos. Both were fantastic. It is a great place to double date with friends.

“Nice place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Never been for dinner and usually always get some sort of wrap. Service can be a little slow but that almost seems standard during busy times.

“Classy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Delicious food with beautiful presentation. Equal to I.C's most expensive restaurants, but cost less. Warm and cozy ambience and great service. Try the ribs on a bed of onion rings that are as thin as wire.
