First impression: Not a private or romantic dining experience like we expected. Silverware was not clean and looked like it was used (sticky and had red sauce on it).
Food was plain and ordinary, but fairly priced. Med-rare ordered steak was cooked med-well.
Waitress did everything in her power to fix the mistakes. No doubt the service is great.
Overall I would say this is a cheap place for a date if you want to take a river stroll when dinner is over. Not a must-try.
This is a Detroit spot you have to try once in your life. The view is spectacular and even the ride up the elevator is a treat. We were disappointed to get seated at the north side of the restaurant (view not nearly as spectacular as the riverfront side).
The food was just OK. Pretty plain. The presentation of the dishes does not reflect the class of the restaurant. The staff all seemed like they hated their jobs. The hostess, who is supposed to be the face of the restaurant was unpleasant and somewhat depressing.
Go for the novelty of the view, not the food or service.
I can't think of one thing that was wrong with this restaurant. The atmosphere, the service and the food were all superb. My husband and I have been testing out some restaurants for Detroit Restaurant week. We ate at Coach Insignia one week ago and we both agree (other than the view) Atlas blew them out of the water. Everything ran seamlessly from the time we were greeted by the very friendly hostess Morgan, to the time we walked out the door. The food is in a class of its own. To be able to create a dish that has multiple flavor phases in one bite is indication of a chef who is on top of his/her game. If it was considered classy, I would have licked my plate clean.
I must say the service was good when I ate here.
The food, on the other hand is way overpriced for pre-made, over-breaded, reheated, sauce-covered slop. Any food that makes for a painful bathroom visit the next morning cannot be good for you.
The restaurant itself is basically a classy fast food chain. If you like it here it's not your fault. You just enjoy the taste of low quality food and have a tough gut.
My husband and I were really excited to stop here before a concert. We love old building style pubs and I will admit, this place is pretty cool looking inside.
The poor rating is for the service. I used to be a bartender, so I'm a good tipper. This was the first time in my life I didn't leave a tip.
We sat at the bar. All we wanted was a beer. There were 2 bartenders. The one serving our side of the bar looked at us when we first sat down. He left us sitting beer-less for 30 minutes. In the meantime, the bartender did the following: went out for a smoke, brought a load of dirty glasses to the dishwasher, changed the song on his laptop, knocked is own beer over, breaking the glass and spilling his beer, washed down the mess he just made, poured himself another beer, chopped lemons, changed the music again, knocked over a stack of glasses, breaking them, cleaned up his mess again, wiped down the counter again...
We we could not believe what was unfolding in front of us. At this point, my husband asked if we could get a drink. The bartender looked at us and mumbled something under his breath. Even the waitress came over and asked if she could get us a glass of water or some food while waiting for a beer (rolling her eyes as if she too was sick of dealing with this bartender). Ten minutes later, he finally asked what we wanted. Not long after, bartender #2 made his way down to our end of the bar, and asked if we ever got a drink.
I'm not sure if the bartender was drunk or what the deal was, but he should be fired. If you get the bartender with greasy hair, drooping pants, a large gut and spends more time singing to itunes than attending to his waitresses or customers, you may want to think twice about sticking around.
First I will say, price was reasonable for a New York hotel and location was perfect. Central to most tourist spots in NYC.
Looks nice from the photos but there is a reason they don't show you the bathroom. It hasn't been updated in probably 15 years. Cracked tile, moldy grout, no vanity. Two minutes into a shower, the water in the tub is up to your ankles. Grosses me out thinking about what is backing up the pipes. Sink had the same problem.
What else... Our window did not shut all the way so it was really noisy. Also... the concierge was very unfriendly and seemed to hate her job.
I'm a diner kind of girl but I can't help but want to throw a cocktail dress on every once in a while. 25 degrees offers both in one place.
The decor and DJ create a sexy, sophisticated atmosphere while you stuff your face with a juicy burger and slurp on a Guinness milkshake.
Gals - it's definitely a place you and your guy will like. I hope I make it to Chicago again soon!
