Eat lunch often and the food is great! My favorite Greek Salad in town! more

Missing the Original..... 12/10/2010

This has been my favorite restaurant for years. We moved out of state for a year and just returned there last night. The food was very heavy and greasy, and my favorite dessert (the tiramisu) was completely different. The prices are up, the atmosphere was more trendy and the service was disappointing. What happened to the previous owners? more

NEW Owner and all of a sudden it's a much better place 5/28/2010

I also heard that the waiters don't receive their tips at this restaurant and decided not to go there anymore, although I really liked that place. Last week I was downtown during lunch and decided to give it one more shot. Turns out the place has a new owner now. He is a very friendly and pleasant person -- an extreme improvement from the previous owners. Anyone who would never go back to this place because of the owners should give it one more shot! The staff is also very polite and friendly now that they are actually being taken care of properly. The food is very good. I suggest you try their bean soup or pizza, both are really good. They have some very nice European beer that everyone must try. My daughter got an Italian soda and absolutely loved it! We absolutely love this place. Pros: great food, good beer and wine, amazing atmosphere Cons: a little pricy more

Pros: no comment,only terrible Cons: na more

This place was always good but now with new ownership is even better,much more friendlier and the staff works much harder and better. Go there to see it for you self plus you are going to love a real Mediterranean food. Pros: one of the best if not the best in slc more

great place with great food and good people 2/3/2010

as former server for two years in Atlantic during my school I have experienced only good from owners (sometimes overworked with every aspect of running restaurant ).YES Owners take tip after but divide with all personall , even pay is European way. I was Starting with $10 pro hour + part of tip (every else pay under $3 +tip) and owner is great with advances, everytime I needed I can borow ,even first month I have problem with car and owners help me, so you need to know more...Yes I have experienced some direct and in moment rude word from owners (I was redy to leave) but every time with reason .Don't forget this people come from European Mediterran and food play big roll in everyday life . With passion tastes better. Pros: original European cafe in SLC more

Cecilia W, the reason the owners give better service... 1/23/2010

(in your opinion) might be, because they pocket all tips made my themselves and their wait staff. I used to frequent this establishment often during the spring and summer season, until i was made aware of this by an adorable young waitress a couple years back. As i noticed the owner picking up her tips on the surrounding tables on a busy lunch shift, I asked if she would be the one receiving the(generous and deserving) tip, if i left it for her, and she said 'no', so i insisted she take it from me personally. She refused and said she would 'get into alot of trouble' if she were to accept it. I don't see how the owners sleep at night, treating their staff in such a way. I will never return. Pros: n/a Cons: poorly managed more

If owners aren't there-don't go !!! 1/3/2010

I was thanked by my friends for years as to recommending them to Atlantic grill. However, that has changed in the last year and a half....I didn't believe it myself until I went there 4 times just to prove that it had gone down hill and for one reason only ""When the cats are away the mice will play"". The owners are great, their son is adorable (and smart) but ONLY GO if the owners are there and they are the ones helping you !!! The girl (woman???) they have had serving is rude (she walked away while I was still placing my order) and the cook they have when they are gone is horrible !!! I mean horrible ! She got all of our standards totally WRONG. As far as the server goes, I had to yell at her to get her attention, she is one of those people that you have to be mean to verbally before they pay attention to you or treat you with any deciency. By all means, GO IF THE OWNERS ARE THERE AND HELPING YOU !!!! IF NOT LEAVE ,LEAVE RIGHT AWAY !!!! BTW the food is GREAT but only if the owners are there !!! Pros: IF owners are there-great ! Cons: RUDEST SERVICE !!! more

Extremely Rude and Inhumane! 9/14/2009

I used to work downtown, a block from the Atlantic Cafe, and would frequently dine in for lunch. The food has always been ?just okay?, and the service...well, it has NEVER been anything special. This last weekend I was passing by the restaurant with my partner after we had attended a downtown event. My partner who has had several medical issues this year very quickly became ill and needed the relief of a restroom as soon as possible. This was not an issue of ""just holding it"", it was a matter of intense pain and could have been life threatening. We walked into the restaurant looking for the restroom and were immediately confronted by an employee asking if she could help us. The tone in her voice was awfully less-than-friendly. I simply asked her if there was a restroom that we could use. Her reply was a very sharp ""NO"". I explained to her that my partner was extremely ill and that it was an extreme emergency. The employee was incredibly rude and treated us as if we were less than human. I offered to purchase something, and even offered her money. She snapped back that she could not help us because the owner of the Atlantic Caf? was somewhere in the building. So I asked to speak to the owner. To no avail, we were pushed out the door as if we were beggars. I have never been treated so inappropriately and so impolitely. Pros: nothing Cons: horrible hospitality more

Good ambience, polite service 7/23/2009

I just happened to see this restaurant while travelling the trax in downtown and decided to enter it. I have been there almost 5 times and have loved it each time. Very polite waitresses, good food,fresh ingredients and the ambience is awesome...definitely worth going again Pros: centrally located, fresh food Cons: wait times.. more

Visitor impressed with the food 3/21/2009

I was in town for a conference, and an employee at my hotel told me that this market was her favorite place to eat. I was incredibly impressed with my sandwich! Quality ingredients, and great tasting! I also like that they give the option of the side being salad or fries without charging extra. I will definitely be back if I'm ever in the area again. Pros: Quality ingredients, authentic recipes Cons: Slow service more

To die for 7/8/2008

I was going to a play across the street at off broadway. After this was still open and looked cute. It is open really late and has loacals who come all the time. Me and my sister tried different things and loved them bolth. I have been back three times now and love everything. You can dine right off the street in the summer and is the perfect little cafe/restraunt for a night out, or just lunch. more


This is my favortie restaurant downtown. I love it so much I actually had my post-wedding luncheon here. The medditaranean (sp?) pizza is absolutely amazing as is the veggie lazanga. REAL olives, not that canned stuff. : ) Has a decent selection of vegitarian options and very well priced. The atmosphere is charming, to say the least and the market has some amazing things, the ONLY place I buy olive oil now! The service is always very good and their coffee is the best I've ever had. I can't even think of enough good things to say about it. Pros: Ambience, Service, Vegitarian Options, Great Market, EXCELLENT prics Cons: I've heard the spaghetti is not the best, but anyone unadventurous enough to only get spaghetti can hardly count. more

Seven Stars! 10/15/2007

This is my FAVORITE restaurant in downtown SLC. If you like the best value deal, this is it. You will LOVE the taste of everything on their menu. Food is freshly prepared and you will feel like you are in a cute little cafe in Europe. I cannot say enough good things. Besides from the European charm, the prices and service are great. You will not be rushed (there is no ""cycle time"" on their tables, unlike many SLC restaurants) and the staff is very friendly. There is a cute little ""must see"" deli in the back where they have lots of Croatian food that you would see at a Croatian grocery market. Pros: The food, the service, the charm Cons: Downtown is a long way from home! but worth the drive!! more
