Although I normally wouldn’t complain about this, I thought it would be customary to be offered a small dessert for your birthday. This wasn’t the case even after spending a lot on dinner. For the prices they’re charging, plus being in the Ritz, I’d expect a higher level of service and attention to detail than to not offer a complimentary dessert. Also, the service was a little slow. The food was great, but the service didn’t meet my expectations

The food here was delicious. Our waiter was impeccable and the experience starts right when you walk in. We were in town for a convention and made a reservation, we were seated quickly and the food was delicious. The macaroni and cheese was phenomenal and so was everything else we ordered. This was a wonderful experience and one we will be adding to our plans every year for Dragon Con.

The food was decent but definitely not worth the price. I’ve had some amazing food at high-priced restaurants and this wasn’t it. I would value it at about half what we paid.

I was excited about having my Birthday Lunch at the Ritz.
There were plenty of empty tables and I do not understand why we were placed in the middle and not by a window with a view. It was not busy.
When the waitress came, she did not acknowledge or ask what my husband wanted to drink, only me. I asked for water with lime and she brought my husband a water but he wanted a Diet Coke, however she never asked him.
I was just so disappointed to be honest. I eaten at a lot of locations at the Rot but the service was not like I was accustomed to.

The AG delivers on all counts: food, creativity, service, atmosphere, and value. That last one is important, because it's not about what you pay - it's about what you get for what you pay. Here, you pay a lot and get a whole lot more. You can choose courses that actually don't cost much more than other high- end places, but are much better. And you can choose courses that are much more expensive and simply unavailable anywhere else. Youe tongue will overrule the little accountant's voice in your head, if you give the food a taste.
This meal, I had the tomato soup (not very special) and the new york strip with foie gras on pureed sweet potato plus a side of creamed corn. The steak and the creamed corn were - in a word - magical. Philip, my server, was full of good advice and he recommended a local Belgian- style dark ale that was kicker.
This was a special meal, and if you have a special occasion, the AG will not disappoint. If it does disappoint, you should retire to your castle and have your personal troupe of chefs do their usual ;-)
By the by, I can count - now - three times in the last 38 years that a host / hostess has called me by name as I walked up as a total starnger - this was one of them, pretty impressive.

Great place for a date or special occasion. Has a little bit of everything and definitely did not disappoint on any account. Bar was well stocked and ran, food was delicious and well portioned and service was second to none. All round great experience in the heart of Atlanta's busy night life. Will be eating there again and have already recommended it to a number of colleges.

Nothing short of amazing......
My husband and I found this open table and went there for our date night. It is in the Ritz so it has a very nice ambiance. We ate on the outdoor patio with fans and it was perfect. Our food was delicious. I had baked oysters and the seared scallops special. My husband had the bisque and cowboy steak. Every was cooked to perfection with perfection seasoning and flavor. We will definitely come back.

Pricey but worth it for a special occasion. My colleague and I ordered the rack of lamb and the Kansas City strip--both exceptional, melt-in-your-mouth, rich flavor selections. For our app, we went with the beef tartare, also excellent. The cocktails were ho-hum at best. I'd recommend wine, honestly, which also won't be cheap.

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.

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.
