Food selection and quality was amazing! Great service and beer. Not a single negative to report. Definitely worth a visit. The site doesn’t indicate, but they have an outdoor area where people brought their puppies.

About the restaurant
Under the renowned culinary leadership, Atlas brings a fresh and innovative approach to traditional cooking. Our menu is inspired by Chef Freddy Money’s career in some of Europe’s most prestigious kitchens. Each dish tells a story, and the menu takes you on a journey that focuses on ingredients, provenance, and texture, resulting in a powerful combination of wonderful and memorable food. Our restaurant doubles as a modern art gallery with emerald green walls covered in 20th-century art from some of the world’s most recognized artists, including Foujita, Chagall, Monet, Soutine, and Picasso. The artwork is part of the noted Lewis Collection, among the largest private art collections in the world, with each piece thoughtfully selected and carefully placed for guests to enjoy.

Valet parking is available at St. Regis Atlanta. The cost is $12 after validation. Please validate your ticket at the host stand. *We are unable to validate self-parking

All the meats tasted fresh and well-seasoned. The surprise of the evening was the bibimbap rice (glad we went with that instead of the white rice).

I was pleasantly surprised by the cozy atmosphere and the service was very good. The menu also has several interesting dishes and fusion interruptions of some oldies but goodies. The jerk fried chicken dish was very good and shows the chef’s non-traditional approach.

Food was very good. The service was a bit off, as the kitchen seemed to be backed up. The location was fun!

Palo Santo was such a nice experience! It's so nice inside. Overall this place is just flat-out cool. The service was excellent. The drinks were delicious! If you like a sweet drink, go for the sunkissed! The food was decent. The only actual dish that I loved was the Bravas /Potatoes. Those were outstanding and I considered ordering a second round. Churro dessert is delish! We also had the guac (just okay), the Carne Asada (just okay), and the Birria (just okay). Overall, I would come again with friends for a nice vibe and tasty drinks. Maybe even an order of the bravas and a sweet treat!

We recently celebrated a couple of birthdays in my family and enjoyed a dinner out at P.F. Chang’s. The food was amazing, per usual. However, this night was made extra special by our server, Felisha. She was super sweet and made the birthday girls feel extra special. She surprised them with ice cream and sparklers. Thanks Felisha for helping make their birthdays great!
