My wife and visited the restaurant for a special night dinner. We had our reservation through opentable. We reached the restaurant on time and were seated immediately. The ambiance was good and the decor was good. The high ceiling in the restaurant added a good space. We ordered sweet potato soup, monkey bread and vegetable risotto. We liked our dishes.The...

When this restaurant was in the Burnham Hotel its decoration was opulent and its atmosphere inviting. Now that the Burnham has become the Alise and the Atwood totally redecorted it has lost everything that made it a pleasant place to dine. It has all the charm of a White Castle, though the youthful staff try hard to please. Considering the... More

The restaurant is situated beneath the Alise hotel and therefore open to guests as well as the public. It's a very modern space. The service was very good complete with cheery staff that is the standard in the USA. I was staying in the hotel so had breakfast here a few times. Unfortunately I didn't find the breakfasts that tasty... More

Stopped by to try out the lunch menu. We did not have a reservation, but were able to take a seat in the bar area. Their menu isn't very large, but what they do have is very good. I would say Atwood is great stop if you're in the area and have the time for a nice sit down lunch.

I had a wonderful house cocktail and a curried root vegetable risotto. As a veggie I've had more risottos in restaurants than is good for me. This was the best of them all. Superb. Huge portions. Pity I didn't have time for dessert. Lovely staff.

I was here for breakfast while staying at the Hotel Burnham. My eggs were excellent and the jam served with the toast was delicious. On my second morning I opted for the oatmeal w/ pumpkin seeds, almonds and bananas and it was fantastic. The look and feel was great. Service was on point.
