Lovely staff, very friendly and polite. Beautiful outdoor area. Food took a while and was so-so but overall a decent night in a lovely spot. I think everywhere is feeling the effect of limited menus and difficulties due to the pandemic.

No vegan options so we couldn’t eat anything but had to order food to get a drink. Very cute place wish there were some veg options. Drinks were good!

I am confident rating this establishment 4.5 out of 5. The reservation process was seamless, parking on a Saturday evening was ample, and the establishment is well appointed. The ground level lobby host was not at all friendly...not unfriendly but certainly not welcoming.
The hostess at the roof top level was everything you expect and more, friendly, accommodating and on her game. The service was friendly and attentive. The cocktails were delicious and the food was presented beautifully and tasted amazing. Portions are on the side of generous.
We will go back soon.

Food and service were great. Only complaint was that prime rib (which was a very generous portion) was overcooked. Would definitely go again.

Food and ambience were great, I ordered a cocktail it had maybe a drop of alcohol at $13 that's unacceptable. The food was great but took at least 45 min.

Service was horrible and the whole night they played lullabies. Our server came back twice for drinks. Once when we got there and once when it was last call. Our server wasn’t going to inform us that it was last call until we asked for drinks again. Good truffle fries though.

The rooftop is a great location and they definitely took COVID protocols seriously. The drinks seem to be a bit overpriced. We were impressed by the appetizers, as those were very good but we ordered our food at around 8:00pm and it arrived at our table over an hour later and the food was cold. I'm thinking that maybe they are not used to serving dinner on the rooftop? In any case, we had higher expectations and I hope I can have a better experience should I decide to go again in the future.

Ambience and service was great. Menu is limited, but appreciated the local artisan charcuterie and the truffle fries with herb aioli. Salad was a nice portion with fresh fruit but was missing the complement of a nice soft cheese and a nutty crunch to complete it. The rooftop is delightful and the staff is friendly though!

Altana is my favorite place to dine, food is great, beautiful view and nice dishes! I went this past Friday and had TERRIBLE service from Ashley. We were planning on getting numerous drinks and giving her lots more money but she attended to us maybe twice, never where for refills, walked past our table maybe 7 times and never asked how we were doing. I have grown up in the restaurant service industry, I know what it’s like to be busy, wait on numerous tables at once, and be overwhelmed. Had that been the case for Ashley, I would have understood. But she deliberately walked by our table many times without paying mind to us and then disappeared into the back for 10 minutes and was nowhere to be found. I understand everybody has a bad shift, but that was unacceptable and very disrespectful. Ashley would have made so much more money in tips if she would have attended to us the way she attended to her other tables. I love Altana and I usually have great service, but I will not be served by Ashley again.

Adhering to the current COVID requirements is not easy. Altana did a great job from being greeted in the lobby by a staff member to the service. I do think they need to train their food runners a little better, though. Dirty plates were left behind when new plates arrived. Overall, the weather was great and the view was spectacular. Our waitress and hostess made us feel welcome and made sure all guidelines were followed. I'll definitely go there again.

The hostess and waitress were fabulous! The view was gorgeous, the food did not live up to expectation. Presentation and taste were off. Drinks were okay. If your looking for a place with a view and don’t mind over priced food & drink than I’d say go for it.
If your a foodie, or someone who appreciates delicious food and drink than I would not recommend.

Went here to celebrate my birthday and it was my first time eating here. My friend and I both got the Crab Flatbread. It was amazing! I ended up ordering one to go because it was that good! I had the mojito and that was excellent. Staff was very friendly. I will definitely be back!

Great service and atmosphere even in the midst of ramped up COVID mitigation efforts. I visited Atlanta on Saturday, July 18th...just two days after Gov Wolf announced restaurants are to operate at 25% capacity.

We had reservations for 7pm and it was my guess that they were alternating which side of the roof you'd sit on once you come in. The host and wait staff were friendly and all masked. They had a contactless, digital menu using QR codes and while there was a but of a wait for the elevator, we never were on as the same time as other patrons.

Music was nice chill jazzy R&B, the drinks were good...well 2 out of 4 were great. The food was tasty too. I'll def be visiting again!
