Food was ok, typical hotel restaurant food. I tried the spicy crab roll for app, it had to much rice. The crab and cucumber inside the roll was non existent. For dinner I had a steak with a side of potato fries. The steak was well done (I asked for med rare) but it tasted ok. There was so much potato fries and they had no seasoning, so I didn't eat more than one. They do have a nice selection of drinks. I would stop in for drinks but not the food.
The place looks a little seedy, could use a makeover. Also the tables were a little smallish & exposed. Food was great though, service was nice, if a little slow...
Was very concerned when I arrived and found,this restaurant is in the lobby of the Sonesta hotel. Once getting past this, I found the food and staff were excellent!
I came to ArtBar thinking it would be a special dining experience. Instead, it seemed to be just another bar in a hotel. I couldn't even find anyone to check in with when I first got there. The bartender did not even know that they accepted Open Table reservations.
They were busy that night with a group from the hotel, so my order took a very long time. By the time my seared Tuna got to me, it was a little tough.
Overall the food was pretty good, so I did enjoy it, but it is important to know what to expect. It is not really a restaurant. Just know that you are going for a typical hotel bar food experience.
Typical hotel restaurant (Sonesta), good burgers, good atmosphere.
Took a chance on Art Bar because of previously fantastic dining at a Sonesta resort in Hilton Head. Art Bar is located in lobby of Sonesta near Atlanta. Did not need reservation as were told to sit anywhere we wanted. We would have had a pleasant enough experience if we had just had drinks and appetizer which were very good. Dinner however was not...order very tardy , ribs dry and overcooked,cut of steak for $36 dollars horrible, even trout seemed overcooked.....both waitress and manager half heartedly apologized for poor presentation due to big event going on somewhere in facility but no comp or even dessert offered. Expensive for the lack of quality and experience we had..enough so as I would not ever try again.
The staff are dedicated hard workers. They were able to seamlessly accommodate my party of 25 plus with great attention to detail. Food was good especially the bread pudding sundae!
Heading to downtown Duluth for Saturday night concert. Most restaurants all booked up. Tried ArtBar and we were pleasantly surprised. It is located in main lobby of hotel and I wish we would have known beforehand. Would have made finding it easier. Place was pretty quiet but service was good and we enjoyed our selections. I would go back for happy hour to see how the bar vibe is.
If you are looking for a place with great food, check out Kaets Steakhouse at Sonesta Gwinnett Place. From the Creamy Collards to the Banana Foster Fried Pie, everything was simply delightful! The staff was professional, courtesy and friendly. They help make the dining experience memorable. I love how they list where they get their products from and even have their own herb garden that they use!
Only one other table in restaurant the whole time we were there so very quiet. Small menu selection but everything was good.
