    A group of managers at the various Atlanta universities get together every 3-4 months and this week we all met up at the Sun Dial Restaurant. It was the best place we have eaten as a group thus far. The views were spectacular and the service was great. Very classy but at the same time genuine. We will most definitely come back here again.

    it was a very nice experience, cannot beat the view and Shauna our server was tops. 2 of our 3 meals were awesome but one omelet meal was super dry and flavorless. the person in our group who ordered it is not a fussy eater so when she can't have more than a couple bites it must not be good. the other two plates we had were fantastic, the roast beef hash and a phenomenal burger, awesome. and oh ya, Shauna our server, the best.

    If you don't mind stepping around all the street bums and hoodlums on Peachtree. Downtown has really deteriorated in the last 6 years. How sad ! Bad guys roam in packs while the police ride bicycles. Safer to go as a small group, or take a cab. BUT the wonderful food and jaw-dropping views make it all worth it. We arrived just before sunset to watch day turn to evening lights. You must try it at least once !! You'll never forget the experience.

    You pay for the view. The food was medicore, and not worth the price. Many other restaurants with better food for lower prices. Waiting 20 minutes in between drinks and seeing your server twice during the entire meal was ridiculous. We won't be back. Too bad. I was really hoping for a spectacular dinner.

    I would highly recommend the Sun Dial Restaurant at the Westin Peachtree Plaza to family, friends and co-workers. The meal and the cocktails were a bit pricey but were worth the night out. The view along with the food was awesome. The service was great. I really enjoyed the wild gulf shrimp with house cured bacon and warm potato salad for starters. For the dinner entrée I chose the Berkshire pork chop with bacon macaroni and cheese, spring greens, cherry red wine. My overall experience would have been awesome; a 5 Star choice except toward the end of my meal there was a purple rubber band underneath a piece of pork chop that sat atop of the mixed spring greens.

    I had the amazing opportunity to dine at the Sundial, and I have to say that everything down to the elevator ride up was just fabulous. We came in time to see the sunset and just as it did, the blinds were lifted and there is our whole city all lit up. It was just breathtaking. The service was great, and at the end our server took out photo while we stood right in the window.....I will never forget our night and I will certainly be back!

    I've been here several times but this time I brought friends from out of town. The ambience is nice but they messed up the order several times. The burger was cooked wrong twice. And we were still charged. While my order was correct, it was annoying that my friend did not get the food she ordered right and we left hungry.

    We ate at the sundial restaurant for lunch with some visitors from out of the country thinking that the view would be great but the food not so. To our delight the view was spectacular and the food fantastic. It was a slow day so we had a waiter and his helper to ourselves for a table of 8. Great service, great view and great food.

    The location is very convenient by public transportation. You can see the whole city in the revolving restaurant while dining. It's better to see the city from late afternoon until lights on. The night scene is spectacular ! Of course it is pricy but the quality and quantity of food do not match the price.

    I frequently take people to lunch at the Sun Dial. The service was so slow, the 5 of us took over 2 hours for lunch. I was told it was a computer problem. This required us to take an hour leave. We got a small discount, but when a restaurant messes up so bad I would expect a completely free meal. I will still go back and this was the only bad experience I had. It is just unfortunate that the restaurant doesn't do more when they realy blow it. (Every other occasion has been good. The Sun Dial is my favorite place to take people for lunch.).

    It was disappointing. First, they told us on the phone they had brunch on Saturdays, only to show up and find out it's only on Sundays. Service was very slow. It took forever for someone to even ask for our drinks. then the appetizer was served and the drinks were not at our table yet! Another half hour for lunch, and we ordered sandwiches so it shouldn't have taken this long!

    I planned ahead of time and made reservations using my husbands open table account for his birthday. The destination was a surprise to him and upon arriving we both had high expectations. Neither of us had been previously and heard / read great things about the Sun Dial. The panoramic view was the absolute best part of the evening. The food and the service were just okay. Nothing was specifically bad, but we compared our evening to dinner we've had at the Lobster Bar and the overall experience including food and service at the Sun Dial wasn't as professional, courteous or impressive.

    We absolutely loved this entire experience. It was breathtakingly romantic and enjoyable! The food was magnificent - we started with the ahi tuna (best part for me), ad then had the NY strip and the filet mignon for our entrees. I was impressed. Great portion sizes with very tasty and rich flavors. We also thoroughly enjoyed the telescopes and the jazz band upstairs. Hopefully it does not become TOO kid friendly, though. That dampered the romance factor a tad with toddler screams and busy young teens running around.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/13/2014
    As I read on previous reviews it seems that the Sundial does not want to make it easy to assist in the celebration of special occasions. I tried to phone the restaurant, left a message but never got a response; then when I called again I was told it was too late to place an order for a cake. What's more the person I spoke to appeared completely unconcerned and did not apologize or express any regret even after I pointed out that an apology or a little sympathy for my plight was in order. She was almost rude and the call ended when she hung up on me. Please post instructions on your website about the need to place cake orders 48 hours in advance.
