The Atlas Room Policies

(202) 388-4020  

    Reservation and seating policies
    The Atlas Room is a reservation driven restaurant. We do welcome walk in guests and will accommodate them as much as possible.   

    Reservations are accepted by phone and a limited number through
    This policy is our only option given the size of the room. A manager is here to answer the phone around 3pm Tuesday through Saturday. All other times, please leave a message and we will return your call as soon as possible. Reservation request messages left on the answering machine are honored in the order they are received. Please clearly state name, and number of guests in party, date requested and especially your telephone phone number. There may be times where an employee states that a manager must call back to confirm. Please understand this is done only to ensure proper table spacing times for the day requested.

    Large Party Policy
    Large party reservations (10 or more) are difficult to accommodate given the size of the restaurant, however, we will take as many as possible.  A large party reservation on the weekend will require a credit card to reserve, and must be confirmed the day of the reservation. Our ability to increase the number of diners in a party is very limited. Please assume that if your reservation is at 8pm or earlier, we have booked a table to follow on. 

    Reservation Timing Policy
    Parties that are late for their reservation time are given ten minutes before we call the phone number that we have to ascertain arrival status.  Given the limited seating of the restaurant,  fifteen minutes late with no contact will void your reservation. Please understand, this is solely due to the size and seating capacity of the restaurant.  If you are late, we urge you to contact us so we can make our best effort to accomodate you and your party.

    Other Policies
    • All tables are considered to be on one check. Detailed separate checks are available only when the server has been informed and the amounts are accepted by our Point of Sales system.
    • Our hand crafted cocktails take at a minimum three minutes each to prepare. Patience is appreciated.
    • We do allow guest to bring in their own wine with the exception of any wines we may have on our list. There is a corkage fee of $25.00 per bottle. Unfinished wine may be taken with you but the cork must be fully compressed, in a bag and the bottle taped to prevent consuming prior to your destination.
    • Guests with food allergies should inform your server at the beginning of your meal, prior to ordering. Please discuss your food allergies with the server so the chef can adjust your meal.
    • We do not offer bread service. Our concept is based on preparing everything in house, and as our space is limited, at this time we do not prepare breads. 
    • We ask that you check your coats with us, especially longer ones. The room is small and getting long coats out of the room allows for the comfort of the guest next to you. Coats may be hung on the back of the chair but if it touches the floor it may be accidently soiled.
    • If you wish to bring your own desert, a charge of 5 dollars per guest will be applied to the total check.
    • All parties of six or more will have a service charge of 20% added to the pre-tax total.
