  • Amazing view but lacking service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 11/25/2014
    We went to celebrate our 20th anniversary. I noted the occasion when I made the reservation. We were asked if we celebrated an occasion when we arrived and at the table - clearly no communication between any of the servers. My family called, gave the resturaunt their credit card to pay for our meal, but charged us anyway. No one wished us happy anniversary even though we stated it several times. The wait staff frequently made me feel rushed and was not solicitous, both at the bar and resturaunt. The food was good and the view spectacular!

    much much better than John Hancock tower's 95th floor signature room. The food at Sun dial is not the best taking into account it's price, however, you pay for the view; and relatively its much better than the signature room. If you are visiting Atlanta, this place I would definitely recommend.

    While we were waiting for our dinner to be served, there was a table with at least 6-7 people. For some odd reason they got really loud and then started arguing. They were very disruptive not considering the other guest. The Sun Dial to me is upscale and that type of behavior not allowed.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    Although the food and service were very good, $4.50 for tea and being charged for water is not worth the price. The view was excellent, but there are many other restaurants of great quality that are more reasonably priced.

    The ambiance at SunDial is fantastic. Being able to see the skyline as we eat was great and the varying views were very interesting. However, the unnecessary and relatively high costs added on for small things spoiled the experience for me. As a pescetarian, I did not want bacon in my salad. I asked for the bacon to be removed or to not get the salad instead. They replaced it with a different salad which was implied to be a complimentary item but was instead an extra 10 dollars on top of the 18 already being paid for the appetizer the salad was with. Similarly, asking for a couple of berries with the 20 dollar dessert brought about a 10 dollar change. It was quite unnecessary and seemed somewhat cheap for such a high class restaurant. That being said, the food was good and the ambiance was great.

    I took my wife here for just a night out so no special occasion. The service was very slow and the place was not packed. Im not sure if that is how they plan it but very slow. Suggested by the staff was the beef and it was over cooked, very small and super dry. The salad was the best I have had anywhere, the coffee was outstanding but the cheese cake wasn't fresh. My wife enjoyed her meal of lobster. Overall it wasn't worth the money spent for the volume and quality of food but the scenic view was great. I would not return for a second meal.

    The view is amazing. We loved the view. The crab cakes were very good as our appetizers. I ordered the shrimp and grits. I didn't enjoy the arugula pesto flavored sauce and the grits were baked hard. The taste would work for some people's taste, but it didn't work for me. I order shrimp and grits and crab cakes on a regular basis at various restaurants. I had crab cakes, shrimp and grits at another restaurant the eventing before and the taste were very different. One of our other dishes included hash browns. We didn't bother to eat them. They were dry, chewy, thinly sliced potatoes with very little flavor. I would try other dishes and return for the view and to entertain guest. The service was good, but not as expected. The waiters and staff were friendly. It appears that at averages of $100.00 per couple, and 15-20 percent tips, the waiters don't feel as much need to impress as waiters who serve at lower priced restaurants.

    First date with someone from out of town. He loved it and was quite pleased that I chose this place. When we got seated, he was pleasantly surprised to find the platform moving. It was a little loud, we had to raise our voices, so this is not a good place for quiet conversation. We will come back again.

    I have been a vegan for many years and while the waitstaff and the chef dd all they could to accomodate my special diet, I was not very satisfied with the final dish. More vegan/vegetarian options would be great. It took some time for the waiter to get to our table, but once he arrived, he had great service. Changing my reservation was not a problem, and I have a fear that it would be. They knew who we were and that we were celebrating a birthday, this was PLUS. Overall, very good experience. Please work on adding some vegan/vegetarian items to your menu. There are a lot of us in Atlanta!!!

    The view of Atlanta's skyline was simply unparalleled (which was the main reason that I booked the table). The recorded intro on the elevator was a nice touch; I couldn't have set the stage any better. The food was superb and was prepared exactly as ordered, although I would suggest avoiding the cioppino; it was a little skimpy and not really up to San Francisco standards. The wine list was notable, but the waiter was a little clueless regarding his varietals. I have to say, however, that my wife was really wowed by the whole experience, so I would highly recommend dining at this restaurant.

    The atmosphere and food was simply AMAZING! But I was disappointed with our server and how long it took to get the food. Another table came in after my wife and I in the same section and was getting their food quicker and was getting a warmer welcome. It may be because my wife and I only ordered an appetizer and desert but long story short don't expect to get great service if you don't have a big appetite.

    The setting was very romantic and is great for a first time date especially for someone that is new to the city. My server was great and very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu, which was small. The small menu was a little depressing, but with such a great scenic view we didn't allowed that draw back to rob us of a good time. One other minor draw back was with the interactive touch pads that is used to identify and give a description of the high rise buildings in the area.

    Unfortunately our experience at SunDial was ok at best. I ordered the NY strip medium rare and it was way too tough. The seasoning was ok. My wife ordered the scallops and they were too salty and underwhelming amount of risotto. That will be my last time eating at the sundial unless it's employer paid.
