We had lunch at Atlas and great cold beer at the bar with an exceptionally professional young woman bartending on a busy Saturday afternoon. We enjoyed a delicious black bean hummus with veggies and warm totilla pieces. Highly recommend it!

My sister loves this place - I found it 'OK'. A bit pricey, but an interesting menu. The 3 times I've been there - I haven't fallen in love. OK, but nothing special.

Great location near the Engbert theater where we saw a great show. The dinner before the show was amazing. Very impressed--so tasty--and I'm a food "snob". LOVED IT!

This was my first time dining alone while my husband was in Iowa City hospital. Atlas made it painless. I dined on the outside patio on a balmy summer night A crisp French Sauvignon Blanc was delightful followed by grilled salmon Asian salad - to die for. Salmon was grilled perfectly and veggies were crisp and fresh. Loved the bed... More

It's always excellent food. The spinach-artichoke dip is simply the best I've had anywhere. The wait staff is very attentive - keeping everyone well cared for.

The food was very well done and presented well. I had the pork tenderloin and it was just right. The place isn't fancy but the food portions are reasonable and the staff is attentive. It's a bit noisy but not so loud you can't enjoy your meal. The shrimp appetizer is awesome and the creme brûlée desert is presented in... More

My daughter recommended this place for lunch. It was pretty busy, so that was a good sign. The tomato basil soup was delish. My salmon salad was ok. My kids ordered Mac and cheese. Nice presentation. The issue was that my daughter ordered chicken with her Mac and cheese and that messed everyone up. Her mac and cheese came out... More

Unique and very creative menu, nice sit down ambiance, the prices range from $ 11 to 27 per meal. The selection of fine spirits is fine. The patio in front is nice and gives the restaurant this sort of European bistro feel. Nice place to visit after the entire day of meetings at a conference!

I've dined and lunched at the Atlas World Grill many times over the last few years and I've never been disappointed by the experience. The food is very tasty, the atmosphere is pleasant, and the service has always been excellent. I particularly like the Steak Frites for an entrée and the Shrimp Voodoo and the Tuna Crisps as appetizers. I... More
