They were busy & service a little on the slower side. My guests really liked their food- I had a salad with chicken added. It would have been nice to have more in the salad besides the escarole & the red onions- perhaps tomato and cucumber? The added chicken was flavourful & delicious

Noise level so high we could not have a conversation. Dismal service - totally ignored by our server, she was short and rude. We asked to speak to a manager and she showed up asking what’s up, pretending she was the manager. The whole thing was laughable. My daughter had a vegetarian meal and could not take two bites of it but overall, the food is quite good. Cocktails are varied and yummy.

We have eaten here a ton since moving to Kingston two years ago. The Vegan menu is AMAZING. Will definitely go back. Our out of town guests were so impressed as well, and loved the food, the cocktails and the atmosphere. The staff is always so nice and make sure if they don't have the answer to any menu questions, they will find it! Love love love Atomica.

The food was amazing! Do not skip the appetizers, the patatas bravas, fried olives, and calamari were all a hit at the table. Perfectly cooked, crisp pizza crust with wonderfully spicy toppings on the house pizza (and leftovers made a great breakfast the following day).

One complaint would be the noise level, probably not the place to go if anyone in your group has hearing problems, or would like to participate in a conversation without a bit of shouting to be heard above the din.

Disappointing. This place came highly recommended, but it did not live up to the praise. The food was passably tasty, but certainly not exceptional. After waiting 45 minutes our appetizer finally arrived at the same time as our entrees making the already small table very congested. To call the noise level energetic is generous. It was overly crowded and exceedingly noisy. To cap things off the hostess/manager was rude and dismissive. Definitely a low point in our vacation.

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!

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!

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 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!!

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.

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.
