We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Secreto. Food was excellent. Service was excellent. Ambiance was excellent. We took the kids ages 17 and 12 with us and they loved the food as well. Would highly recommend the restaurant and will definitely return... I have a list of entrees I want to try!

I had heard such good things about the food from friends that it was definitely on my list to go!!! Secreto did not disappoint! It started with a friendly greeting as we walked in the door for our 5:15pm reservation. The restaurant decor was very nice as well as the atmosphere! Then there was Liz the bartender who made me a dirty martini with Monkey 47 complete with blue cheese stuffed olives that was PERFECTION!!!We really enjoyed talking with her while drinking our cocktails. She was AWESOME!!There were other cocktails that she mentioned that sounded really good! Then we were seated for dinner and our server was Brooke. Yes, she too was AWESOME! We were there for Restaurant Week. She took the time to go over the menu items in detail complete with the serving sizes. Her service was prompt and friendly! Also, it was a team effort from all of the staff in bringing out our food and taking our plates when we were done. Now the food was FANTASTIC! It was beautifully plated and VERY delicious!!! We will most definitely visit Secreto again!!!

It was our 39th wedding anniversary. They celebrated us with two glasses of champagne. Everyone was very friendly and eager to make our evening special. The food was delicious and I think it's safe to say that most everything on the menu is spicy. The chef's middle name is not "bland"!! LOL

I love the food here. It’s just wonderful. But a huge huge negative is the snooty attitude of literally everyone who works here, from the kitchen staff to the bartenders and most especially the hostess staff. Lucky for them that this restaurant serves good food and is one of the few good restaurants in the immediate area!

We are very surprised to hear this review as we get great reviews about our staff. I have reached out to you to try to identify what happened this evening without any response. I have talked to the entire staff and no one was able to pinpoint which reservation was yours based on your comments. I wish you would let me know what happened so we could address it. Our staff is very warm and welcoming as you can see by the 4.6 stars average review. Please join us again and let us show you.

Wow. Everything about this place is perfection. I gave the service 4 of 5 stars, only because she was a little slow getting back to us, but our server was knowledgeable, courteous and not cloying, and efficient. We didn't feel like we sat in dirty dishes but neither did we feel rushed out the door. The place was full and we were all able to hear each other - huge points for that! No yelling! Woo hoo! I had the shrimp and grits. Perfection. All the food was beautifully presented and delicious. The only thing that was any issue was that there are only 2 options for anyone who does not eat shellfish -- the fried chicken and the salmon. Please consider adding other fishes or meats to the menu!

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear the service was a little slow. It often depends on how many tables are sat in a server's section at the same time, but we are definitely always working to improve the service. I wanted to make sure that you were aware that our menu is larger than just the Alpharetta restaurant week menu. We have several other entrees that do not include shellfish including our Andouille crusted redfish, apple brined pork chop, and cajun beef medallions.

We are visiting from NJ first time dining here, place was great. It happen to be Restraunt week so that was a plus. My wife had the salmon dish which was terrific and my shrimp and grits meal was equally as good. The nice part of the evening came when the owner and chief visited the dining area which is always a good thing to see. We will definitely return!

Food was astonishingly good. We had been to Secreto several times in the past, but the experience the day after Valentine's Day this year was far above anything previous. For your reference, out menu included roasted red pepper & crab bisque, pork belly appetizer, bang-bang shrimp, and the black grouper special (remainder of supply from Valentine prix fixe menu). Compliments to all concerned,
including our server and the chef, who visited our table. Our to-go dessert was carrot cake, complete with preparation instructions. This place is a gem -- fortunate to have in the Alpha/Johns Creek area.

Secreto Southern Kitchen is my new FAVORITE restaurant! My husband and I went for Valentine's Day. It was my first visit. Everything about it was super fabulous A+++++. It's an excellent date night location. Very nice, comfortable, clean, with good vibes. The food was exceptional!!! The staff was very professional, pleasant, and accommodating. Everyone who worked there was so nice and showed genuine effort to make sure everything was just perfect! For my 1st course, I ordered the Iceberg Wedge Salad. I was totally surprised when it arrived with an extra plate that had a red rose on it next to a ring box displaying a breathtaking 4 ct diamond engagement ring and wedding band set! This was a pre-arranged Valentine's Day surprise from my husband. We've been married 5 years already, but this was a beautiful major upgrade! Everyone was in on the plan. It was wonderful!!! My 2nd course was Chef Boyd's Southern Fried Chicken with Buttermilk Mash, Garlic Green Beans, Smoked Bacon Jalapeño Gravy. So extremely delicious!!!!! My drink was Southern Passion- Vodka, Orange Liqueur, Falernum, Passion Fruit, Agave, Lime, which was delightfully fruity and arrived with a beautiful flower on the top. For dessert, I had Red Velvet Cheesecake, which was surprisingly light and yummy. Overall I give Secreto Southern Kitchen 5 Stars! I highly recommend. EVERYTHING was perfect! Can't wait to go back.

I would not recommend because it’s over priced for what you receive

Responded on 17 February 2020

We would invite you to come back on a regular night where our only option is not a prix fixe menu. To accommodate all of the Valentine's reservations we only offered the 4 course prix fixe menu Friday. We overall have a high rating even on value.

Our server Mel was just a darling! Very nice experience. The wine pairing was nice however each glass came well after the dish it was to be paired with. My carrot cake was amazing! The blue point oysters were to die for!!! I wish they had those all the time! The experience was overall very pleasant! We will be back to experience their regular menu which looks killer!!!!

My husband and I met another couple for dinner and everything was amazing. The bang bang shrimp and pork belly were melt in your mouth good. The fried chicken, pork chop, and shrimp and grits were everything we hoped they would be. Our server was knowledgeable and made great recommendations on cocktails. We will be back again!
