We celebrated our twins’ 21st birthday on a Saturday evening. We all enjoyed our meal. The food and service are always fabulous here. They even brought complimentary dessert to the table for our twins. It was an evening we all enjoyed.❤️

What a jewel! First time dining here and it was fantastic. Food was very good. Our party had the southern fried chicken, salmon, shrimp and scallops. All dishes were delicious and well presented. One con would be that the scallop dish was a bit skimpy (only 4 scallops) for the price. That was disappointing given that the other meals were generous in size. The service was absolutely incredible--best I have had anywhere! Very attentive and made sure our needs were well taken care of throughout the meal. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Third time was another charm. In town for a dog show and went back to our "go to" favorite. Another great meal in a quiet setting with delicious food. We wish they were a chain and had one in Nashville. Great "southern" food, but with tastes from fine restaurants around the world.

The entrees were first class, tasty and well presented. Scallops were excellent as was the salmon and red fish. The crab bisque was among the best I have ever had. Spinach strawberry salad was light and refreshing with just the right touch of dressing. Also impressed with the wine list. The only quibble is with the desserts. Too heavy as a finish after the entrees which can be on the heavy side. Something simple, like sorbet or gelato or a simple cake would have been welcome. Small quibble, though. everything else was wonderful. So happy to have found this place to add to the small number of suburban restaurants that serve quality dishes.

Three of us had tenderloin medallions and were pleased. Excellent flavor. One of us had scallops over shrimp risotto. Serving three scallops is a bit stingy. However, the risotto was cooked perfectly and seasoned well. We first ordered cocktails and sent two back because of being overly sweet. Our server graciously exchanged them and the manager apologized for that when he approached our table to make sure everything was to our liking. We shared a flourless chocolate tort with the tiniest scoop of ice cream on top, enough for one ice cream lover. The place is cozy and unassuming in simple elegance. Just wish prices were a little more reasonable. And you the way, although each entree comes with a vegetable and a potato (small portions of each), everything else is extra, including bread. Service was excellent.

Fantastic meals: generous portion chicken with jalapeño gravy, rockfish with light andouille crust, scallops, followed with a lovely warm piece of carrot cake! Very friendly staff and general manager. Leisurely warm atmosphere in which we could hear our conversations.

Monday night date night with my beautiful wife. We sat outside and were the only ones out there. They played an awesome song playlist and the music wasn’t too loud or too soft... just right. The shrimp and grits were awesome as was the fried chicken dinner.

We enjoyed our first visit. We sat at the bar b/c we enjoy the activity and people watching. We split the crab cake appetizer and it was really great. not a lot of "filler/breading". Our entrees were delicious: the Andouille Crusted Redfish and the Grilled Lemon Basil Jumbo Shrimp. Service was accessible, although had a little bit of a sluggish start and one bartender seemed too overly focused on a group of apparent regulars who were partying at the bar, but not a big deal in the scheme of things. I mean, great regular customers are the bread and butter of a neighborhood restaurant. Good wine pairing recommendation. Over all, a nice convenient restaurant with really good food and a pleasant ambiance. Will definitely go back.

This was our second visit to Secreto. The four of us skipped the appetizers in favor of salads. High marks to the kitchen, we split a wedge salad and the kitchen rearranged the salad into two 1/2 wedge salads. Very impressive and very tasty. For entrees - two chickens, one pork loin, one salmon. All very good. All were artful arranged. Nothing left on the plates.

Tables are well spaced and attractive dark wood with candles. The manager was on the ball. Moving and soothing. Our server was not. Maybe her main job is bartender, that is where she spent her time. Nothing worse than the evening winding down and having to search for the bill.

Also we had a couple of the specialty drink; maybe a little pricey, but not offensively so, an just maybe, because they were really good.

Noise level was fine. We could hear each other, but there was other stuff going on in the room.

Go back as often as possible.

Excellent find using the Open Table app. Two people in our group ordered the fried chicken (which is a house specialty) and loved it. I ordered the pork chops, which were equally impressive. The sides are very complementary to the entrees. I will be returning on a future trip to Alpharetta.

This is my new favorite in the Alpharetta area! Jose has done a wonderful job with Chef Boyd. The selections are awesome - I've not had anything yet that I didn't love. Service has always been great. The restaurant size and style reminds me of what you find in big cities like Chicago. This is my new go-to for business, family and date night!
