We always enjoy this restaurant and were surprised to see the manager Sunday at church and he recognized us instead of the other way around. Just shows how customer-driven they are beside offering outstanding food.

Enjoyed a lovely Birthday lunch with good friends. Comfortable atmosphere in the neighborhood, with great food. The Grilled Salmon BLT was excellent...will definitely be ordering it again, and the Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese frosting was perfect...moist and nicely spiced. The service was very slow the day we were there, but we were in the mood to chat, so it didn’t ruin our experience.

Food was great! Service was okay. Always had to ask for the server. The server was definitely not interested in selling anything. And the restaurant was not even busy. We finished a bottle between 5 of us and the server didn’t even bother to ask if we needed another drink so we decided not to get one at Secreto. The food was definitely great.

Had dinner on a late Monday night. Even though the dining room was pretty empty, the food was very good, fresh and made to order. We had the deviled eggs and pork belly for apps and both were excellent. For dinner we ordered the fried chicken and scallops. Again, both were very good, but the jalapeño sauce for the chicken was way too spicy for my taste, and I like spice. Also, for $33, I think the scallop dish is a little overpriced for just 3 scallops. Other than those two things, the food was pretty spectacular and worth the price of the entire meal. But the best best best thing this restaurant has is our server, Jonathan. He’s young, but has been in the restaurant industry for years, and has mastered the art of providing an excellent customer experience. He’s knowledgeable about the entire menu, the history of the restaurant and understands the delicate balance of providing exceptional tableside service without being overbearing. It was my birthday and he was very gracious to comp a piece of carrot cake which we took home. It was amazing, btw. Thanks Jonathan. See you very soon, for sure.

Visited Secreto the first time a few months ago when I was in town for business. Back for business and made sure to visit again—with clients this time! We were all blown away by how fantastic it was. It’s a small menu, but every dish was sheer perfection. Highlights from our meal include the Bang Bang (??) Shrimp appetizer—sweet, spicy and crispy deliciousness; the fried chicken (worth the trip alone!); and the short rib (my client travels all over the country ... said she gets short rib all the time, and said THIS was the best she’s ever had!). Staff was amazing: attentive, friendly and efficient. Will be back the next time I’m in ATL for sure!!!

Had lunch with some friends the other day. We were all very pleased with our meals. The food was delicious and the service was attentive and top notch. This is a great place to gather and have good food. Lots of great items to choose from on the menu. This is most definitely a neighborhood gem! We will be coming back for sure.

I visited this restaurant a few months ago and selected the chicken for my dinner meal. It was so good I committed to revisit the restaurant on my next business trip to Alpharetta. There were three of us enjoying dinner together on this trip and I convinced them to get the chicken. All of commented at the end of the evening that it was the best chicken we have ever eaten. The chicken is crispy, tender boneless breast pieces with a tasty gravy. My mouth is watering as I write this review - honestly, it is that good and memorable.

Refer to all the good reviews here. This is a lovely little spot away from the Atlanta hustle and bustle and the old Roswell foot traffic. The unassuming setting belies a wonderful food experience. We ordered the redfish and the fried chicken dishes. They were superb. My husband loved the chicken sans bones (oddly, bones unnerve him on any dinner plate). The light andouille crust on the redfish was just the right amount of added tastiness. We had the carrot cake desert as did the table next to us. All of us agreed it was fabulous, hands down. My only recommendation is that they lengthen the curtains in the front to block parking lot lights from disturbing the ambience. We will go again (and again). Parking lot lights or not. ;-)

Our meal was delicious! My husband had the Southern Fried Chicken and I had the Grilled Shrimp, both were flavorfull and prepared just right. We also ordered the carrot cake which is a must have, warm cream cheese frosting...so good! We were celebrating our anniversary and would go back for dinner again and again. The service was excellent, food came out in a timely manner, drinks were made perfectly.

The dinner was fantastic. Who knew that a restaurant in a strip mall in Alpharetta, GA would have such delicious and fresh seafood, a great wine list and such a beautiful setting. We'll be back!

Thouroghly enjoyed our meal here. We came to celebrate my birthday and while no dessert or pleasantry was offered, the food was outstanding. My husband ordered the wedge salad and I had the spinach strawberry salad. The mai tai was fabulous. I ordered the boneless fried chicken which came on a bed of creamy mashed potatoes along with crispy green beans. My husband ordered the andouille crusted red fish. Everything was mouth watering. We will definitely return.
