Excellent meal and fun time with friends. The restaurant had few patrons when we first arrived, but that soon changed. It was packed on a Monday evening. Our server was friendly, helpful, and joked with us. The food was excellent. We loved the fried green tomatoes and bang bang shrimp. Two of us had the short ribs which were yummy - tender, very flavorful, and filling. Two had the redfish and thought it was delicious. We have eaten at this restaurant several times, but it was especially wonderful this time. We will definitely return!

Amazing food - Fried chicken is outstanding (and their claim to fame). The short ribs were also excellent, paired with Asiago grits. We had the chocolate tort for dessert (gluten free). It was an all-around, fun, and tasty night out with the family.

The service was excellent. They answer all questions with plenty of detail. We met the chef, as he was making the rounds throughout the restaurant.

The ambiance was also very enjoyable. The dark wood floors and walls mix well with the lighting for a cozy feel.

First visit Thought about trying several times and passed. That was a mistake. What a pleasant surprise. Service was fantastic and the food was great. Told members in my party that reviews mentioned the fried chicken was great. It was and possibly the best ever. Owner stopped by the table several times. Finish the evening with the carrot cake

I made a reservation more than a week prior for my birthday dinner-then we received a table in a crowded area with several large loud groups around us. Seemed like the server was overwhelmed our service was poor

I made reservation for 7 people for a lunch birthday party which turned out to be more but was glad they could accommodate the change. The restaurant was beautiful the decoration in there was very modern. They had a great patio which we should have sat outside because it was such a beautiful day! It’s ok next time. Our server Sebastien was amazing! He attended our needs and his friendliness was great! His description of the drinks and food was awesome which sold us on the fried chicken and it did mod disappoint! Two bones less chicken breast with mash potatoes and green beans!! Overall we had an amazing experience! I will be back and tell more people to come!

Best dining experience in a long time! From the welcome we received upon our arrival....6 stars. Obscure location in a strip center but once you walk in the door....fantastic! I started the evening with the Pom Paradise cocktail. We had the beet salad, bang bang shrimp, beef medallions and red fish. We closed out with the warm carrot cake. Highly recommend!!!!

Another excellent dinner at Secreto. I usually get the fried chicken and last night it was exceptionally good. The arugula salad was delicious and so was the carrot cake. This is a gem of a restaurant in the Windward area.

Our first visit was on NYE, and we all had a great time and said we would be back. The food was delicious, and we had a difficult time selecting from all the choices. Nice ambiance and we were sorry we didn't leave room for dessert. I mean, who offers warm carrot cake?! Next time...

Best Fried Chicken I've ever had! I'm not typically one who orders fried chicken but our friends who had been to this restaurant before raved about it. It really was amazing! We also ordered the short ribs which is something else that I wouldn't normally order and they were also fantastic. The chef is very creative and somehow puts an elegant twist on their southern menu. Our waiter was excellent and the atmosphere was very nice. The fact that it's in a strip mall put me off a little at first but I got past it quickly after I walked in. Highly recommend this place.

When we pulled up to this restaurant, we were a little hesitant because of the strip mall type of setting. But, as soon as we were seated and started talking to the staff, we relaxed. The service, from our server, to the visits to our table from Chef Boyd, was outstanding - enough that we felt we were being attended to, but not so much that it was overwhelming. We had the crab bisque and burrata to start - both were delicious. For entrees, we had the dry aged bone-in strip special and the Faroe Island salmon. The steak was well seasoned and well cooked, so it was divine! And the salmon was perfectly done. What a great hidden gem in Alpharetta!

It was our anniversary dinner and we requested a booth. We were greeted warmly and showed to the booth table which had beautiful little candles on it. Then the waited served us complimentary champagne and congratulated us on our anniversary. The food is very good. We had more of an appetizer meal. Had the charcuterie board, burrata, pork belly and deviled eggs. The pork belly is 100% the best pork belly I’ve ever had! Would definitely recommend.
The craft cocktails were made well and quickly. Secreto is an awesome place for a romantic dinner and some great food.

Our meals were fabulously prepared and served. The signature chicken was savory with a surprising little bite to it. My friends were also pleased with their tender pork chops. The chef stopped by to chat which is always welcoming. Our server was attentive and delightful. Additionally, we love that the restaurant has a sister location in Brookhaven, so we can enjoy another evening closer to home soon.

I'm not sure what the hype is about. It was just okay. The truffled devil eggs needed more truffle. The crab soup was lukewarm at best. The charcuterie board was uninspired. The service was rushed. Servers should be trained to ask "Would you like anything else?" before plopping the check down on the table and walking away.

Again, it was average. There are far superior fine-dining restaurants in the area.

We were celebrating and appreciated the free carrot cake, but the entrees we ordered were all cooked at the wrong temp and extremely salty. Somehow, we ate it but would not order that again. First time, I’ve ever had something not taste good there. It was quite disappointing.
