we stopped in for a glass of wine before dinner. Service was slow, the menus were on plastic, and the food was ordinary (we had the tapas appetizer). There were a lot of people in the restaurant so the vibe was good, but something was just off.

This is a very cosy Café with excellent service and exceptional meals. We were two couples for dinner, all our meals were well prepared and presented...The lamb shanks were to die for...there is a very good selection of wine at a very affordable price... A place to go if you are visiting Guelph

We had visited several other restaurants on Carden Street and liked the look and ambience from the outside; as they say, looks can be deceiving. Yes it was a Saturday night and we did not have a reservation BUT there were several empty tables within the restaurant. We asked to be seated for dinner. It was 7:30 PM. The host... More

My boyfriend and I came here the weekend before Valentine's Day as a treat for ourselves. We had heard about their crepes and really wanted to try them. We each got one breakfast crepe and one dessert one. The smoked salmon crepe was delicious and filling, worth the price. However, even though the dessert crepe was very good, it's a... More

We have strolled down and into Atmosphere twice now without reservations. We were surprised both times that there so many available tables early in the evening around 630PM. The place picks up and gets busy bit later into the evening it seems but I think word needs to be spread because the food is excellent and the service is great... More

A great gathering place with friends, for starters and cocktails. Gets very busy, but has a great vibe with delicious food. During a rush servers are not as attentive as one would like.

Was there with friends and family members and everyone loved the place. My wife's nephew visited when he was younger and wanted to take a memento from the server which she obtained in Europe and she declined to give it to him. All had a good laugh!!
