Noise levels so loud that we could not speak to each other, and took a half hour to get our wine.
Have eaten here before but probably won’t again!

What started out as a potential disasterous business dinner turned in to a well handled customer satisfaction experience! Our service by Philip was impeccable, and the manager Eddy handled the situation with ease. We left happy!

Was taken for a business meal and the server was not as attentive as he should have been. Food take extremely long to come to the table. Had to remind him every time he stopped at our table for something. His main focus seemed to be making sure all of our water glasses were full.

Everything was very good, and the service very polite and attentive. What is not shown on Open Table, though, is that it is the Steakhouse in the Ritz Hotel. When I booked it, I'd swear it only had two $, but given the prices, I'd expect it to be rated $$.

However, if you have a special occasion and you want to splurge, I would recommend it highly. The bartender knew how to make a Sazerac (not a popular drink and few bartenders I've encountered know it). And Arnoud, was very professional and made wonderful recommendations.

First we were one of three tables, our waiter acted and treated us as if he was in the weeds. Service was just sub-par all around. Food was ok, and for those prices ridiculous for what we received. Very disappointed, very!!!! Will not be back!

The AG is in the Ritz next door to the Westin and about .4 miles from the GWCC, so good location. Still in an area that is slowly changing and becoming more welcoming to the casual individual or group walking to dinner (but still a ways to go). The menu was great and the venue and view were very good. We sat at the bar...we were casual but wanted a good meal , close by. The bartender was pretty slow and had trouble with taking our drink order....he finally got some help and we got our food order in. The food was pretty good, menu was solid, recipes were modern and presentation was good. Again the bartender forgot the little things and dulled the experience. I tend to eat at the bar because the bartender is often the best waiter and has the most to gain with a business meal. I will go back and try again, but I our service was off for a restaurant that claims to be 4 stars.

This was the perfect setting for our business lunch - not over the top fancy, but not casual either. The staff was very professional and knew when to approach the table and when to hang back during deep discussions. The seasonal salad this time may be the best salad I've had in years!

Our company was treating our nurses to a lunch during National Nurses week. We were a party of five. The service was extremely slow; although the restaurant wasn't unusually busy. The chicken was overcooked and dry. The "Express Lunch" was nothing short of lengthy. The management did not handle the overly boisterous and obnoxiously loud group next to us, so we had to almost shout to be heard. Overall very disappointing.

The Ritz Carlton went all out for our first anniversary dinner and did everything they could to make it as special and memorable as possible for us! From quiet alcove where they seated us to the rose petals waiting for us on the table, we were treated like royalty. Our waiter, Arnauld, was very attentive and accommodating. The food was extremely delicious! We will definitely be back for our second anniversary (if not before). I highly recommend this restaurant, especially for special occasions!

We've dined at AG for almost 10 years. It's always a pleasure to come back and make new memories. The food is great and the service is outstanding. Most employees have been there 10 plus years. The Ritz will validate the parking so there's no extra charge to park. Isn't that nice for a downtown restaurant.

Very slow service, after our server finally took our dinner order I then had to say can we order drinks as well please?! Had one round of drinks, were never asked if we wanted more.

Steaks are large and expensive so the service should have been there.

Manager gave us 10% off.

Went to AG before an outing at the Atlanta Symphony. It was also our wedding anniversary. Our server Arnold (he has been our server 4 years in a row on our anniversary) provided a complimentary cocktail for us to start our evening. The tuna appatizer was great. Our steaks were cooked perfectly (medium rare) Finished off our meal with a custom made custard that was fantastic.

Very poor service - for $120/head you shouldn't have to wait until you are done w/apps to get your wine. The food runner was more attentive that the server was. Servers at AG should be reminded that customers are not only paying for the food, but the experience as well, put a smile on your face and act like you care. Had he been more attentive, friendly and offered even a smile, we probably would have tipped him 50% (I was a former high end server in NYC and when I get great service, I tip great). Food was pretty good, ambiance was cool. Would not recommend due to service - ruined a special night for us.
