Ended our vacation in Georgia/NC with dinner at Polaris . Celebrating hubby’s 50th birthday! Service was great, food/wine was exquisite and the view from our table was beautiful. Staff ended our dinner experience with a birthday dessert- very thoughtful! If I ever go back to Atlanta would definitely come for my steak fix! For someone’s who is not crazy about steak this was by far the best... for some reason not sure why lol I was craving steak and I’m glad I was!

My absolute favorite place to eat while on business in Atlanta. JT provided great service and it was such a pleasure speaking with the talented Chef Jennifer Yoo again. I am in Atlanta 7+ times per year for business and always make sure to come at least once each trip to Polaris.

Foods were good.
The manager missed us when we went up to the restaurant, and asked us to leave for other people when we just finished dinner (about 2hr) even though there were empty seat.
Other staffs are all friendly and good service.

Once we got past the hostess things were great! Very nice romatic dinner with my husband. The waiter was very fun and full of laughs. If he wasn't able to check on us, he made sure he got someone else to. There were a couple of large parties there but the noise wasn't bad. The sax playing was very classy. However, The hostess was very rude and not welcoming. We told her we had reservations and she asked if we had got a text. We said no but it is after our reservation time. She argued for a minute and then we finally said again we had a reservation. She said oh ok well in that case u can go up to the restaurant. She didn't apologize and was still rude. Other than that everything was wonderful. Great night with my husband

A colleague and I took a married couple (who are customers of ours) to Polaris. Concept of the restaurant and the view are great... However, I would not have dinner there again. Portions were small and very high priced (for what you get). I would go to Polaris for drinks and appetizers only. I would not go there for the entree. I left hungry. (Service, by the way, was just fine.)

Had a night out with my girlfriends. Nice ambiance and city view. The food was amazing. Had steak Oscar style and shared the cheese plate. A friend ordered a recommended drink. She didn't like it, but it was instantly replaced with something she loved. Our server Gary was amazing. Will definitely return. A bit on the pricier side, but well worth it.

The ambiance was phenomenal, however we were not waited on for 25 minutes once we were seated. The drinks we ordered were delicious once we received them 40 minutes after sitting down. We did not receive the special dessert I requested on the Opentable reservation to celebrate our themed date night anniversary. Since it was a surprise, I didn’t want to ask for it in front of my partner. It was a disappointment.

The view in Polaris is beautiful. There is a section where we were able to watch the chefs cook. I did not appreciate the amount of time we had to wait for our server. As soon as we sat, we had to wait about 20 minutes before our waitress came to greet us and give us water. It appeared that there were only two servers that night. I am not too sure. Although the server was kind, everything we received was slow. We were there for almost 2 hours. Overall, the experience was nice, the people who worked there were professional. I would go again if the service is quicker.

Polaris was very accommodating. I showed up with my wife 2 hours early (my fault) and they were able to find us a great seat, and we were taken care of by the bartenders Shawn and JT. They were great as servers, and both worked together to make sure that all of our food came on time, and the refills where there if we needed them. We ended up staying for a few hours, in which, we were asked to move to the bar, as the table we had was reserved. As we sat at the bar and watch the restaurant go from sunny Atlanta into night life Atlanta Shawn and JT gave us some great places to check out in the area. They were very attentive with the drinks and making sure our glasses were never empty just as before. They also were very social telling us some stories, and great travel locations they have been on. Overall the food here was amazing, it is a small menu, however, it is cooked and crafted to perfection. Both of our meals were presented amazingly, the temperature was perfect, and the taste was phenomenal. I recommend their signature dessert for a night cap.

Absolutely amazing restaurant, spectacular views, ambience and exquisite food! We celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary at Polaris and had the most fabulous dining experience. The chef even sent out a little "Happy Anniversary" note with our dessert. I love the "zero" noise level and the amazing service from the moment you arrive to the the courteous farewell from the host/ess. I definitely recommend anyone considering dining here to do so, you will fall in love with Polaris too!

Hadn't been to the Polaris in 15 years so I was a little concerned about how updated and fresh it would be. The experience was amazing, decor cutting edge, and the food: AMAZING! Rotating above Atlanta, seeing the whole cityscape while enjoying and amazing meal and experience was the best!

It was our anniversary dinner. The staff was professional and attentive. The drinks were great and the food was phenomenal—from the appetizers to the entrees! Our complimentary dessert was a pleasant surprise and very tasty. The views were breathtaking. Our dinner was at dusk and lasted approximately two full rotations of the restaurant so we were able to view the city while still light out and as the sun went down...beautiful!

We are a dental office staff and doctor in town for the Hinmann Dental Convention. We dined at the Polaris for an 8:15 dinner reservation and were promptly seated upon arrival. Our waiter was knowledgeable of the menu and friendly. The food was expertly prepared with a uniqueness of preparation.
Overall, it was a pleasurable experience.

Our experience at Polaris was excellent. The staff are courteous and attentive. The view from the rotating seating area is breathtaking. And the food was tasty—from the appetizers through the deserts. Our only small challenge were the portions for our dishes. We know that most restaurants provide appropriate service sizes. This however was a bit disappointing for my entree and for our deserts. We were hoping for just a tad more in the way of portions. Everything was well prepared and scrumptious, but left us wanting more. Aside from this small piece the visit overall was wonderful. We enjoyed celebrating our anniversary there and would definitely return for a second visit.
