Don't eat here! Horrible service from hostess and waiter. Took some customer for lunch. The employees had an awful attitude. They thought they were doing us a favor when seating and taking our order. Took them over an hour to bring the food. Had to chase waiter to get my check. Will NEVER come back.

The food was very good and the service ok. The atmosphere is not so great for the price you are paying for dinner. The restaurant is open to the food court and a homeless man was walking around asking for money.

Made reservations via OpenTable weeks ago because I knew it would be packed for an event going on. Upon early arrival I was told my reservations never came through on their end and they could not honor OpenTable, I had my e-mail confirmation in hand from the day prior and we were reluctantly sat. Took awhile to get our drinks which was fine, we were in no hurry. Our appetizer was Calamari - soggy. We had the Ahi Tuna and Filet. Both were just okay. We really wanted the Creme Brûlée and learned this location does not serve it due to time restraints. Our waitress was amazing and we did end up getting a free drink due to a computer mix up. Honestly, next time we are here for an event I will just have something in the food court.

It’s convenient if you are catching a show in the surrounding area. There is really no ambiance, and the menu items are hit or miss. They offer good drinks and service is ok. There is nothing bad here, but nothing great either! I have had mostly pleasant experiences when eating here.

Our visit was singularly the worst experience I have had in any restaurant. We arrived and were seated in a table that was actually good for us to have a business lunch. Our reservation was for 12:00PM and that is when we arrived and were seated. Drinks were served slowly but we had these and had given our order by around 12:15PM. We finally left the restaurant around 1:30PM without ever being served any food. No effort was made to serve us bread or chips or anything temporary before the order was served. Our server made only 2-efforts to engage us without our getting up and asking. I talked to the front desk personnel, other wait staff, and people behind the bar. All said that it was embarrassing. However, only excuses were made one of which was, "we were only informed of the high traffic that morning". We were part of a large convention that was directly across the street and I had made my reservation weeks in advance. Never have I been ignored for so long and so completely. This bazaar experience was disgusting. My guests at this lunch were made to rush to their next meeting without a meal.
My recommendation is for these operators is to find another career.

The food that we ordered was very good. They were extremely busy due to multiple conferences going on in be location but the service was good considering. I am giving them a 4 star rating only because when we were ready to order they were out of several items that were on the menu. But what we did order was yummy.

Made a reservation 5 days prior for Saturday. Called the day before the reservation to add a person to our reservation. Received a call from them 12 minutes before our reservation stating that they could not honor the reservation because it was GameDay. I had 2 customers that I was entertaining that evening. Wasn’t good. I will never eat at Dantanna’s again and will spread this story.

The food was OK. My chicken avocado sandwich had a very unripe avocado and the chicken was very dry. My husband had the grouper sandwich which was a little too fishy. The spinach was great. Service was good.

Dantanna's was a convenient location to meet up with old friends while I was in town and staying at the Omni. Our server was helpful and attentive without feeling like she was hovering. The menu was fairly straightforward, no big surprises, but the steak was outstanding.

Went with the family before a Hawks game. Service was mediocre, the Server clearly didn’t want to be there. The sandwiches were basically cold cuts. The fries were dry. Very disappointing. We will try Hudson Grill next time.

Food and service were excellent. It opened up to the CNN atrium and that it's where the noise was coming from.
They were filming. You have to try the Krispy Kreme bread pudding.

The food was delicious but the service was lacking. There were very few people there and we were seated at the same time as one couple and before a group of 3 that came in after us. Everyone received their food before us and we had a very basic order a salad and tacos. It took nearly an hour for us to get our food. When I went to the counter to complain I was told they would “take care of our food” I thought that a meant it would be comped, but that was far from the truth. We were offered 1 free dessert to share and the offer came from a waiter that was not ours. Our waiter avoided us until it was time to bring us the check. Again food great, service poor and they were not apologetic about it at all. Thumbs down!!!

Surprise!! Even though this was a sports bar/restaurant venue the food was very very good. From burgers to fish to steak..... so good! When we couldn't find a fine dining restaurant to make reservations last minute we booked a reservation here. Yes I would recommend. Little bit loud but we had a kinds secluded place to dine and we turned off the TV.

I've been to Dantanna's a number of times and was shocked when we arrived to see only six other patrons in the entire restaurant on a Friday night. The pepper calamari, which we've enjoyed on a number of other visits, had no pepper flavor, too much batter, and were overdone. The shrimp one guest ordered was also overcooked. Not sure what happened that evening to the kitchen but certainly hope things turn around.

While in Atlanta for a trade show, I and my colleagues decided to try Dantanna’s. This is more sports bar than steak house. Like most of the restaurants in the CNN center the staff was inattentive and lackadaisical.
Based on what we saw we ordered steaks to be safe. It’s hard to make a mess of a grilled steak. The steaks arrived and were charred beyond recognition on the outside and cold in the center. It’s not a place I could recommend for more than a beer and appetizers and then only if they’re not busy.
