    You know a restaurant is great when they make sure everything is done perfectly. I loved the food and drinks. The restroom stole the show! From the Aesop handsoap to the Cottonelle toilet paper, it was an amazing outing!

    I went to Atla on my birthday and everything was so good so when my parents visited I took them there. I was bummed to see the menu was different and didn’t have any of the plates I talked to them about. I understand menus change as seasons change but just my opinion. As a mexican family, we thought the “cafe con leche” was like a regular cafe con leche, I even asked the waiter to make sure it wasn’t a latte (con leche espumosa) and he said no. The margarita was also mediocre, not sure if the bartender was not as good. Anyway, I was also excited they had the carnitas de pato from Cosme which I’ve had twice in Cosme and were delicious, but at Atla they were mediocre. My dad had also asked for a little salt and the waiter forgot and by the time he remembered my dad was done lol. I love Atla and Cosme and I love to support mexican restaurants here in NYC but i was a little bummed. Hope this helps.

    I’ve been to Atla a handful of times and it’s always been good. The service this time around was so spotty and slow, it was difficult to get our server’s attention and he barely came by to check on us. The food is good, just don’t expect good service.

    I have been a fan of Enrique Olvera's creativity for a long time and it is not the first time that I enjoy his creations. On this occasion, Striped Bass Ceviche, Potato And Cheese Flautas, Summer Squash Salsa Verde, Tlayuda, and Tres Leches Cake, were the stars of our dinner and as always it did not disappoint us, but the attraction of the night was undoubted "Las Carnitas de Pato" accompanied of authentic blue corn tortillas and of course Mezcal Espadin, a match made in heaven and recreated first at Cosme and now in Atla. Service was amazing and contributed to our night for a Great Experience.

    The portions are fairly small for the price but that was not unexpected. The service seemed confused, as multiple different servers came to ask us about the same thing after someone had already handled it (ordering food, dessert, etc.) The one thing no one asked us is whether we wanted another drink and we had to flag someone down to order that. Overall, a number of the dishes could have had a more robust flavor to them and were fairly mild. The guac was good, the sauce in the Fluke Aguachile was very good and the Suadero tacos were tasty if somewhat simple overall. It was all good, just not quite to the level of reputation of one of the better restaurants int he City.

    The hostess said my reservation was for 2 people, but it wasn't (I can see on the pentacle app). Therefore we got stuck at the bar which was uncomfortable for 3 people. Food was good, but too loud and uncomfortable. Doesn't seem like a nice place to work.

    It is over priced. If you order around $15 taco, surprisingly you will get only one taco. You know that is not real mexican and it was delicious but not worth for $15 for one taco. Service was good but again we paid $80 for casual lunch.

    i thought this was going to have the same quality than Cosme, I tried some of the same dishes and they were poorly executed. For examples the quesadillas and guacamole where not their best. Also if you are going to charge $18 for a mushroom quesadilla it better be outstanding, hopefully ill come back.

    I was super excited to visit a place where a Mexican American chef was represented as we lack so much representation in different industries in the US. I started off with a quesadilla which I though needed a salsa with it. The suadero tacos were really good, the carne was nice and crispy though it was a bit to greasy for my taste, I would recommend adding more lime so customers can have a chance to cut through the fat. The enchiladas were PERFECT, I am usually not a big fan of chicken in them but the chicken in these enchiladas was so good. It was a nice balance with the tortilla and salsa verde, also I love how they had three enchiladas the quantity was great. I was very disappointed at the service I received from the waiter, he was rude and condescending and never really checked up on us. Even though I was in a Mexican restaurant I constantly felt inferior due to the service provided by this waiter. I was finishing up my drinks after finishing my food when he unexpectedly gave me the check without me asking, I honestly felt like I was being kicked out. It was so disappointing. My partner also noticed this behavior. Luckily the hostess noticed it too and he approached our table to take the check back and told us to take our time. I really liked the attention to detail that the hostess gave, he was amazing. However, these little things matter in a place where a mexican women should feel confortable and I though I should bring this to your attention because I would hate to know other people like me were given a service that felt forced.

    Server was awkward and revealed a bit of personal information that was inappropriate in a dining setting. The food was ok, although portions were very small. The mole was way too sweet. It tasted like a dessert taco.

    The food was good, however our experience less than stellar. He brought the wrong drink on two separate rounds. The biggest issue, however, was that hair was visible in the food he had just brought to the table and when we immediately pointed it out, asking if he could bring us a new one, he asked if we would be ok with the one with the hair if he removed the hair for us. Cringe-worthy.

    Given all the glowing reviews and hype that Atla has received since it opened, we were extremely disappointed by our experience. The small space is uncomfortably crowded, with the round tables so closely placed that it’s impossible for people to get out of their seats without bumping into each other. The staff is neither particular friendly or helpful and so affectedly casual that one would think it’s an inexpensive restaurant, which it is not. The food tastes good but not even close to being worth the prices charged. Atla charges $15 for a single small shrimp taco or $20 for a bean tamal that is about a third the size of a normal sized tamal and only marginally more tasty than what one could find in an average higher end Mexican restaurant in just about any major urban area. There is literally nothing special about the decor, ambience or service to justify the higher price other than the fact that it was created by Enrique Olivera, who created both Pujol and Cosme, both of which are far better restaurants. It’s one thing to pay $250 for a meal for two people, it’s another to pay $250 for a meal and to leave feeling unsatisfied and ripped off. When it comes to the hype surrounding Atla, it’s safe to say that the emperor has no clothes.
