    Lee took very good care of us. You can't beat the view. Tried tofu wellington, an odd dish I thought, and it was a quite good. The beets with chevre cheese were excellent as well as the braised oxtails. The scallops were out of this world.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/19/2014
    Overall, I enjoyed the experience of viewing the city of Atlanta from 723 ft above. However, the food was awful. The mac and cheese was overcooked and overseasoned. The best food that this restaurant provided me was the bread placed on the table at the beginning of the meal. Our server was great and very inviting. The place was cold. No military discount. Valet service is complimentary once you've spent $75.00.

    I brought my grandmother to brunch for her birthday and friends/Family as well. The server was slow, we got there at 11:45am we didn't leave tell 3:30pm. It was one of the worse service I ever had from a five star restaurant , I had better service at Applebees. Our food was cool when we got it and the server keep messing up on our order, it was horrible.

    I enjoyed the nice ambiance of this place...very romantic. The view of Atlanta was amazing & I love that the restaurant was roatating as we were having dinner. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The chicken pot pie was very good (both my boyfriend & I had it). The alcoholic beverage that I had was ok but I felt it could have been better especially since it was worth $17. I enjoyed the strawberry lemonade that my boyfriend had more than I did my own drink. The service was well-timed and friendly & our waiter took very good care of us. Overall we were very pleased.

    After speaking to friends who had previously dined at this restaurant I was excited. Once my wife and I arrived our expectations were met. We arrived just before sunset and were able to get great breathtaking views of Atlanta both before and after. Our server was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable and made us feel really comfortable. Our meal was awesome and didn't take too long to arrive. Over all we had a fantastic night out and would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends.

    Dined here for lunch on a beautiful autumn Saturday. Everyone loves the views at night, but today you could see forever and pick out all the landmarks near and far. You will pay slightly more here because of the ambience, but well worth it on occasion. Service was excellent, if a bit slow because of the long distances required to walk by the wait staff. Food was well presented and tasted outstanding. My wife commented the shrimp and grits was the best she's had, and she's had a few for sure. Great experience.

    This was my first time at the sun dial and it won't be my last! I had pretty high expectations from its reputation but I was blown away by the flavor and quality of the food and the view was stupendous. The staff were excellent and I felt right at home and accepted even though I may not have been their target demographic at my young age. I spent a good chunk of change and never winced, indeed I was happy to because of the whole experience

    I am 53 years old. I grew up in Atlanta and as a child my Dad would bring me down to his office - Coca Cola. After getting married and living in Birmingham for 28 years we moved back to this area (Sharpsburg/Newnan). One of my bucket list items was having lunch at The Sundial Restaurant. Yay, finally can check this off of my list. It was better than I could have ever expected. Thanks for the wonderful and awesome experience!!

    This restaurant was very nice and very upscale. The ambiance was awesome. The view was magnificent with the lights of the city and the colorful lights of some of the buildings. The elevator ride with the view and how the lights go out with only blue lights still lit so you can get a great view without glare going up! The food was excellent! I had the Braised Shank of Lamb with white bean and lamb sausage cassoulet, roasted acorn squash, rosemary gremolata! Oh, this was soo good! Then I finished it off with a cheesecake with strawberries! The wait staff was very knowledgable and catered to our needs, although I think they were a bit overwhelmed the night I went because there were a lot of people dining that night!

    Getting to the self-park area through the Westin entrance was a pain. Navigating through the Westin to find the restaurant was a pain. We had a reservation, there were plenty of empty tables, and we still waited to be seated. Once seated, it took at least 15 minutes for wait staff to acknowledge us. Our waitress was very friendly. The food is absolutely NOT worth the prices. I created a veggie plate by ordering several sides. Some items were bland, others overly salty. Very small portions. Really nothing special. You can't beat the view, which is clearly the draw. However, that's not enough to make me return any time soon.

    Whether for business or pleasure, whether on big budget or bigger expense account, this is a good way to enjoy an exceptional view, sunset and evening at an exorbitant price. You have to take the chance, you want to do it once and then maybe again at a more exceptional downtown.

    Dear Reader, I expected a lot going to the SunDial Restaurant because I was under the impression it is a highly reputable dining place. Here are my impressions: Pros: 1. The view was outstanding. I filled my phone with lots of stunning pictures of the city and the vibrant energy it gives during nighttime. 2. The spinning dining area and bar is an amazing idea, and it is worth visiting this place just because of this particular aspect of the place. Combine that with the 72 store high view and you are set for any occasion. 3. The food was very delicious and the servers were very nice. Outstanding service and food. Cons: 1. Disappointing food menu. Little variety 2. Bathroom not very accessible, and sort of small. 3. Expensive!

    Restaurant great for special occasion, romantic setting.... The food on the other hand was pretty disappointing. I had the Chicken Pot Pie and my wife had the Pork Chop. Her chop was ok, mildly seasoned. The Pot Pie was a complete joke. Granted, it was explained to me that the dish was a "disassembled" play off of a traditional pot pie, but that description was sorely misleading. The dish included a chicken breast that was underseasoned, with a few green peas, two small carrots, and a small biscuit, literally the size of a silver dollar. This was $32. Wife's dish was $40. The strawberry cheesecake was ok for $9. Ticket with tip came to $113. Next time we'll come back only for the view and dessert.

    We arrived there about 20 minutes before the sunset, we intentionally planned like this so we got to see a beautiful sunset and then the city lights. The 360 degree view is spectacular, very romantic. The food is delicious, unique and very nicely presented. The staff is kind and attentive. It couldn't be a better choice for a dining experience in the city.
