Atomica used to be my favourite restaurant. I can’t say this anymore., unfortunately. I was disappointed with the food ( burnt pizza crust) the service wasn’t the best. Maybe it was just an off night.

Overall I enjoyed my experience and the food was outstanding. As an east coaster, they use brothers pepperoni and authentic donair meet which was a taste of home which I loved. The sangria was very large and good value. Our waitress could have been better and our table was in an awkward corner. Don’t go hear expecting intimate conversation as it was quite loud. Enjoy the party though!

Great food but poor service! Waitress was unfriendly and inattentive. In the online reservation, I selected from a drop-down that the occasion was a “birthday”. Despite this, the waitress didn’t even bother to wish my friend happy birthday! Why have that option if you’re not going to offer well-wishes or a complimentary dessert? The pizza and ambiance was truly excellent but I’ll be thinking twice about coming again, since the service was so poor!

Would return again for the excellent pizzas. Also tasted the fettuccine which was delicious. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meal. Was disappointed that the delicious bruschetta selections are no longer on the menu.

There was a food tour in that was seated in the middle of the restaurant. Their guide spoke at full volume to the group for 25 minutes. My friend and I could not even carry on a conversation. Recommend asking if it's a tour day before you go.

It was my birthday dinner celebration. We didn’t get bar service for 10 minutes with an empty bar, and then waited an additional 15 minutes before ordering drinks at our table. Thankfully the food was amazing and saved the night. Service was just very slow, not attentive, didn’t acknowledge my birthday. Went there for the vegan menu and will continue to!

I'm Vegan, so I was very happy to find a Plant Based Section to the menu! I had the Vegan Fungi Pizza and it was great. Looking forward to trying the other selections!

Disappointing. While wait staff were very friendly and courteous, we were informed almost right away that there was no bread. How a restaurant runs out of bread on a weekend escapes me.
Mains were ok but unremarkable and the whole meal overpriced given no starters or dessert and one drink.

The pizza crusts were tough
The vegan caprese salad was nice
When the waitress accidentally charged us for the drinks of the table next to us, she didn’t apologize, despite how long it took to fix the error.
Slow service.

Start to finish a great meal. We started with the stuffed olives, tried a couple of their wines, and then ordered the donair pizza and a salad.
Donair meet spicing is very specific - and they nailed it.
Will definitely return to try other pizzas!!

We had a wonderful meal at Atomica. The food was excellent. The service was quick.
Our server was very good and kept a watch on us to see if we needed anyway. She would frequently stop and ask us how everything was. I will certainly be returning for another meal.

My husband and I chose to dine on the quaint street-side patio because the night was so lovely. We could hear live music being performed nearby which added to the ambiance. Our server was very good and brought delicious bread for dipping in oil and vinegar. We ordered a pitcher of Steam Whistle, arancini balls and the margarita pizza to split. It was all really good. The pizza crust is incredibly thin, just the way I like it. Our server brought over some hot chili peppers in oil and this gave the pizza just the right amount of kick. Overall, this was a very enjoyable dinner.

Calamari was good but on the cold side. Mains took a long time to arrive, chicken in salad was cold, dry and completely plain. Pizzas were good.

We have regularly eaten at Atomica while living in Kingston. We were in town and wanted to try their new vegan dishes. We were very impressed. Their food is always good, and these new plant-based items are no exception. These are dishes that would appeal to anyone, not just plant-based diners. Service is always friendly and our visit today was no exception. Their pizzas are among the best in town and you need to put them in your mouth.

Usually love the pizza here. This time both our pizzas were badly burned. We should have sent them back but it was very busy and we could not wait much longer than we already had done. The caesar salad was very good. Disapponiting as I had brougt family from out of town.

Maybe it was an off day - most of the dishes we ordered were quite tasty. But the paella could only be described as "bad" and food service was only ok. Customer service was good though - I mentioned the paella was quite poor and without asking, it was taken off the bill. I'd give it another chance!

We were disappointed with slowness of service and taste of food. Of the 2 mains we ordered, we would not order them again. Our friends' pizzas looked fine, the caesar salad was good too. Of the people who had never been to Atomica, they didn't think they would return again. Too noisy for conversation although the ambience was nice, food took long to appear, and 2 of us didn't like our mains though we had been there many times before. (We tried something new and did not like!) The whole place looked like it was well worn, and needed a bit of an update.

Haven't been to Atomica for a while and I think it has improved in the interim. The menu has changed and included some interesting additions , like the paella. (Delicious by the way). Pizzas are inventive, e.g. grilled peach and ricotta and the thin oven-fired crust is perfect. Do not miss out on the Pear Sangria - lovely!

My friends and I went for its vegan menu. We were somewhat disappointed to see the Knifey and Spooney vegan menu gone. We appreciate that there's a new "plant-based menu", but it is shorter and the new dishes are not as delicious.

As most kingston restaurants these days the noise level is far too high. There is no need for background music, guests go to visit with each other, not listen to any kind of music, good or bad. One has to shout one;s head off most of the meal . Who cares about these mediocre bands anyway.
Enjoy the food and service but can do without the noise!

For some reason the staff said they did not have my open table reservation even though I had an email confirmation and had phoned to confirm on the same day. Service was very slow even though it was early with only a few customers. The poor waitress was trying to wait tables and seat people while the hostess was busy socializing. We had to ask 3 times to have some water and a drink order taken. All of this was very disappointing at the front end of the meal.
