Service was very friendly. Ambience was not as nice as I expected. I had heard such great things about this place, but feel like it’s hey day has come and gone. Seating not comfortable and hard to believe for the prices they charge that wooden benches have a lot of slivers that catch on your clothes. Wine VERY overpriced. Overall, it was a good experience due to the staff- but food and ambience definitely NOT worth the prices. Probably will not be going back considering the great restaurants in the area with better food, cozier atmospheres and less costly.

We waited far too long for 2 cappuccini and they should have been compted. They said there was miscommunication and not sure why but...
We had 2 servers, one in training (she was lovely) and another who did try to be on top of things.
We then ordered donuts and wanted them with our coffee. We waited and waited... The manager apologized for the wait but they then tried to bring us 2 orders by accident, they weren't hot enough and we had really finished our coffee. Could have done a better job and either a cappuccino or the donuts should have been removed from the bill. Wouldn't rush back there for a meal.

Very, very long wait for our food. No options for children really so we ordered the pasta and asked that prepare it only with butter and cheese for our small daughter. We also asked that it is sent first as she was hungry. It came last and full of pepper so she could not eat it. We sent it back and asked for it again and after another long wait it came full of pepper again. Food was good but overpriced. Our waiter was attentive and seemed genuinely concerned. We were not charged for the pasta but the whole experience was disappointing. Will not return.

If you want one of their signature waffles, you have to get there early. They run out very quickly.

Really great place in Dumbo for brunch! Menu is not extensive, but good food. The cocktails are creative and the outdoor seating was really nice on a warm weekend day. Our server Spencer was warm, friendly, and didn’t rush us! We will definitely be back!

Staff was superb, we walked over the Brooklyn Bridge with someone using a walker and were majorly delayed. The restaurant staff was very accommodating, helpful, polite, professional. I wasn’t sure what to expect as I saw a somewhat limited menu but the dishes were so fresh and amazing, we had a pina colada that was very delicious as well. Thank you for a wonderful time and excellent experience. I will definitely recommend this restaurant.

I loved the atmosphere and the decor, unfortunately the food was really bad. We sent back the steak, the staff were really friendly about it. We got the fish but that was bland. I really with they could update the menu because the restaurant would be great!

Service was attentive, friendly and helpful; probably the highlight of the meal. The drinks were also quite good, though a bit pricey for what they were. The food was good, though nothing super special. I had a burger that came with crispy potato wedges, my friends had other dishes such as the eggs florentine with crab. It looked pretty good but overall the food was relatively spartan. At this place you are essentially paying for food that will satisfy your hunger, good drinks, and good service. If the chefs/managers amped up the food menu a bit with flavor, this place would be great.

Had such a great experience! Not a ton of sweet options on the menu for brunch, but regardless, everyone at the table enjoyed their meal!

Service was top notch, looking forward to visiting again soon.

Great spot, pricy but average for the area. Fantastic wine selection with knowledgeable staff. Reasonably medium portions, stock up on the maple smoked bread and salted butter which is worth it. Might have room for dessert.

They were out of everything, no chicken, no bread. Practically half the menu is missing. How does a restaurant run out of most of their food by 6 PM? Would not recommend.

The very first time I tried this place, I was in love with the menu--everything I had blew my mind. 2nd time, not so much. 3rd time, not so much. Their menu rotates. Rotating menus have pros and cons. If you love something and they change the menu, then you have to find something else to like. I have no complaints. It's a cute spot. Good for groups. Good food. You just might love one menu over another. So, maybe check out the menu before you go to see if it's what you are looking for. If not, wait for the next one.

The space is very pretty and the staff are fine, but the food is a problem. The menu is limited and they were out of the roast chicken - the main reason we chose this restaurant. We ordered a drink and within five minutes two tables (of maybe 5 or 6) sent their food back to the kitchen. Given the lack of options, missing dish, and dissatisfaction of the other diners, we left without finishing our very bland drinks and ate elsewhere.

A really rude awakening! I had visited Atrium not too long after it had opened. It was then a sophisticated, candlelight delight. What greeted me this time was a crazy loud, high chair filled nightmare. The food was still good but 1. I wonder for how long and 2. We literally couldn’t hold a conversation. I’m not sure if the AC was broken and they had a temporary system- I literally can’t think of how else the management would explain it. We couldn’t get out of there fast enough, and I won’t be going back. DUMBO lost a gem, really sad.

Nice atmosphere and good service overall! We came here for brunch with my family and the food was good. The avocado toast with smoked salmon as well as the soft shell crab sandwich were both excellent. Burgers and fries very good, too! Only thing was that it’s loud when busy due to the acoustics.

Soo, I love this place and the service is perfect. The restaurant updated their menu this year (or maybe last year?) and there were some nice new menus items (frozen cocktails!), but a few favs are gone. Also, the meal was... some items were surprisingly delicious -- simple ingredients, but it tasted great. On the other hand, one small plate (potato bread roll) used to be amazing and now seems like the recipe changed for the worse. Plus, my burger wasn't quite cooked to order... enough of it was to eat a lot, but a lil disappointing. I'll probably go back, but not in a super rush.

The service did not reflect the price point.

My party of three sat at a corner table for dinner...while there were multiple groups sitting in booths only having drinks. I made reservations and was given a table which did not fit the idea of a dinner table. If anything that table should have been used for parties only having drinks.

I asked to be sat upstairs but the host (who was fairly nice) said they were closing the upstairs portion down since it's a slow nice. 10 min a later a group of three were sat upstairs.

The noise level is actually higher than I rated. Being upstairs would have helped a lot with the noise level. Not sure if the downstairs space is good for noise in general.

Overall I'll most likely never come back. The service from our server sucked. He was not polite. He was quick about his responses. However the young guys that took our drink order was really good. Appreciated him. Didn't appreciate asking our actual waiter for ice water literally 4 times and never got it.

Lovely ambiance, brunch food a bit variable with some dishes very small and basic for cost (eg melon salad with lobster). But being there mid afternoon, they were happy for us to linger with just drinks.

Was my b day - the service was awful, we were charged $20 for coca cola with our meal, my friends food was dry and our waiter was MIA the entire time. When we made the reservation we wanted something special and noted it was for a birthday - nothing was mentioned by the restaurant.

Beautiful location with great views of the bridge.
We sat outside while enjoying the amazing view and the great wine list.
They had frozen drinks and we got to try the Froze which was spot on, not too sweet and a great way to cool down on such a hot day.
I ordered the melon salad to start followed by the soft shell crab sandwich.
The salad was super refreshing and interesting, it had grilled and raw cucumber as well as melon dressed with champagne vinaigrette and mint leaves and basil oil.
The soft shell was crunchy and juicy, and it went super well with the old bay mayo and the tomato jam.
Overall it was a great experience and would definitively be back, best lunch spot in this area can’t wait to come and try the dinner menu.
Highly recommend

The food was incredible! We started with the seafood platter that the chef came and topped with liquid nitrogen himself and it was filled with fresh seafood from Montauk. The best looking seafood platter I have ever had. They had a great selection of Champagne at good prices so we enjoyed a bottle with it. After that we shared the roasted chicken for 2 which came with a delicious truffle pot pie and finished with the smoothest liquid nitrogen spun ice cream! What an expreience! We can't wait to come back!

Loved my meal and time here. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Wine selection was amazing, one of the owners is a Master Sommelier which explains that. I watched on in amazement as the chef came out to a table to serve what looked like a seafood tower and proceeded to pour liquid nitrogen on top the visual was stunning.
