    My daughter requested the Sundial as we had taken her there when she was 8 yrs old (now 23). We went to celebrate her leaving the country and we were treated like royalty. Yvees, our server, was wonderful. We enjoyed the scallops and NY Strip and a very unique garlic shrimp appetizer. The view was lovely, we dined as the sun set and the transition from evening to night was perfect. Thank you so much.

    The view and service cannot be beat. The food is very good, but can't give it five stars because portions don't match the already high prices paid for the view. Don't get me wrong, I don't expect a belly busting portion, but gourmet sized sides belongs in a place where the food is the feature not the view. Peter our server was one of the best I seen at any restaurant.

    It was an interesting experience. I was greeted by a staff that didn't not look to par of what I imagined. Sagging and texting. As I arrived it was no smiles no customer service, which was disappointing. I placed a reservation and felt I was waiting forever until I was seated. The waiter was very friendly, however seemed to disappear for extended periods of time. Lots of times, another waiter came over in his place. I was seated next to a table with some very energetic children which wasnt what I imagined for an evening dinner. The food was good yet not filling. However overall it was an experience that had me question ever going again.

    We wanted to do something special for our Daughters 9th birthday, after combing through the many options in Atlanta, this one rose to the top. We stayed the evening at the Westin and had a sunset dinner at the Sun Dial. We were hesitate about taking our three children here, but we were delighted to find they offered a children's menu. There were many families there and we didn't feel at all our of place. The food was great, and the services was wonderful. The children loved the views and the idea of a rotating restaurant. I would definitely recommend this for families and for a special occasion.

    I took my wife for her birthday. I had noted that when making the reservation and was very pleased to have three people tell her Happy Birthday before we even sat down. The food was great and our server was a veteran of 14 years there and he was on top of everything. I would recommend The Sun Dial to everyone, to go at least once for the great experience. The prices are a tad on the high side, so regularly joining them for dinner would be tough for most. Oh yeah....the views are amazing!!

    My husband and I had lunch here for my birthday celebration. My waiter was very attentive and informative. To my surprise the food was beyond delicious. The reason why I was surprised because normally when I eat in fine dining the food is not usually to my taste, but the meal here was filled with much flavor. The scenery was to die for. We plan on returning in the near future.

    Awesome gourmet-style food that is impressive, and I have a great benchmark for this across places around the world in my travels. It's a bit pricey, but to be expected at place like this since the atmosphere is the best in atlanta. I wouldn't want to see them raise prices as that might make me consider my choices of fine dining in downtown ATL, but would definitely go back if they maintained current service/menu style pricing

    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 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.

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.
