When travelling home from Minnesota, our original dining plans fell through. The silver lining was finding a new great restaurant in Iowa City--Atlas

Our overall rating was 4.63 (out of 5 stars). 

Here's how that breaks down: 

Family Friendly: 5 Stars
As usual, one of the boys spilled a cup of water.  A random waiter stopped to clean it up and brought him a new water.  He cleaned it up with such a good attitude we can only assume little boys dump water on the floor every day.

Menu: 5 Stars

Taste of the Food: 5 Stars 
Sometimes I wish we could put '6 stars'.  It was really good food.

Appearance of the Food: 5 Stars 

Restrooms: 4 Stars 

Atmosphere: 4 Stars 

Service: 5 Stars
See Family Friendly above.  They were pretty busy the night we were there but we still had excellent service.

Ethical/Sustainable: 4 Stars
From their menu: "We use only hormone and antibiotic free meats and poultry. We proudly serve Loch Duart Scottish salmon, Go to to learn more. We use local and/or organic produce as the season permits from Organic greens, ZJ Farm, Wild Life Lakes Farm, Fae Ridge Farms, Echollective Farm and Dirty Face Creeks Farm."

Pricing: Main dinner entrees are $15 and up.  They also have entree salads and burritos that are in the $10 range.

The next time we're in Iowa City we'll just plan on going to Atlas from the start!
