    A remarkable blend of culinary excellence, outstanding service, and a warm, inviting atmosphere with amazing views of Atlanta. Our server, James played a pivotal role in making our visit memorable, from helping us pick the Grouper for our entree, crab cakes for our appetizer, the wine, and the list goes on. He made our anniversary dinner in Atlanta memorable.

    After reading several reviews, I was concerned about dining there. The view is awesome and we witnessed a beautiful sunset. They acknowledged my husband's birthday. This was our first time dining at Sun Dial and the service was very good. However, the menu is limited and very expensive for what you receive. Sadly, we won't go back.

    The location and service was excellent but the food and drinks were grossly overpriced. The menu selection was very good as well as the food itself but not so good as to be worth $400 before the tip. Will never go back.

    The best experience hands down. Mike was our server. He was so knowledgeable, and his voice was like listening to a story. From the time we checked in for outer reservations until the time we stepped off the elevator, I give this a 20/10. The steaks melted like butter. And speaking of butter the bread and butter was *chef's kiss* . The honey garlic butter was amazing. And don't forget to try the signature sweet tea, infused with real vanilla beans. I cannot say enough good things about our visit, but I can say we will back.

    So sad to see the decline of this iconic restaurant. The place was run down, the food was grossly overpriced, and the room was so hot we were all sweating. The server was great, but if it wasn’t for the view, this place would never be able to stay open with the poor food and rundown interior.

    Not that many people were in the restaurant at the time yet we had to wait forever until we received the food. My fiancé order the filet mignon and that thing was tough as ever! I could have went to long horn for that. I ordered the grouper for my meal. It was bland like I mean no seasonings. They had onions and tomatoes on top of the fish. It was an absolute no go. The only thing I loved was my drink which was called the Georgia Peach. If you wanna waste some money come here!

    Starting with the reservation, when I went online, it showed only 5:00 and 5:15 pm as the only available times. When I called the restaurant directly, I was told that it was booked for the time I wanted. Then after a minute of talking, I was told to go head and book the early reservation time and that they could change it to the time I requested. When we arrived in the dining area, to our surprise, the restaurant was more than half empty. We were seated and waited over 20 minutes before I flagged a staff member who then had a waiter, not ours, come and take our drink order and starter order. Finally, our waitress came and apologized. After almost 30 minutes we were served a breadboard, the best food that we received that night. Then we ordered. The waitress was not familiar with some of the items on the menu and told us that the Chilean Sea Bass was about 7 ounces. It sounded good so my wife ordered it. I ordered the filet mignon, medium rare but on the rare side. The Sea Bass is priced at $85dollars and the filet at $91 (except that the filet sides are an additional 10-12 dollars each. The food arrived cold, my filet was cooked medium at best and the sea bass was mushy and no more than 4-5 ounces. The "special" cocktails we ordered were only half a glass. We had the manager called over and explained the situation to her. She comped the drinks and the bottle of wine that we had already started to drink and offered to have the whole meal taken care of. The fact that the food and service had already been so bad, we declined her offer and left. We then went to the lobby bar ordered basically the same drinks and wine and 2 filets. That cost was equivalent to what I would have paid in the Sun Dial just for my filet. Even the bartender stated that the food in the lobby bar was better than that served in the Sun Dial. Also, the bar in the Sun Dial has been closed since covid. This is a 2-3 atar restaurant masquerading as a 5 star.

    The view was spectacular and the restuarant is incredible. The food was just ok in our opinion and the service while good, wasn't over the top. We both would have liked more explanation on what we were eating. We ate at a Michelin Star restuarant that was cheaper a few months ago, and thought the food and experience was better. But you cannot beat the view here!!!

    Terrible Food. Definitely not worth the money. High priced, so call “fancy, fine dining” definitely did not translate to the meal. $175 a person for a meal that did not include a drink, further more, most of the dishes came out at room temperature. And a forced 18% gratuity for a 2 person table. With the amount of my check the tip was $77 for terrible food and a city view. I was really disappointed. But you win some, you loss some. I go out and travel alot, please spend your money elsewhere. Please don’t waste your hard earned money on Sundial. Staff at the front desk didn’t even say goodbye or ask about our meal. Just terrible $600 check, what a waste. If that was a Valentines Day experience, I wonder what a regular night would be like. Don’t eat here. Again, please don’t waste your money. The bread and Prosecco was the best part, but I could have spent less than $20 on Pepperidge Farm and a bottle from Kroger…oh let me step it up and get “Fancy”, $40-$60 on a bottle from Publix’s or Total Wine. Trust me you would have been more satisfied. I’m curious to see other reviews from guess on the night of 2/14/2024. By the way, I still left an additional tip and I was not under the influence. If it wasn’t for my girlfriend and her beautiful self, I would have “turnt up”.

    I had a disappointing experience at The Sundial, a high-end restaurant located in the heart of Atlanta atop the Westin Hotel. Despite its reputation for impeccable service and cuisine, my visit was far from satisfactory. My girlfriend and I chose to celebrate our anniversary there on Saturday, February 10th. Our server, Peter, took an exceptionally long time to attend to us. It took 20 minutes just to place our order for two drinks, two salads, and our entrees. Although bread was supposed to be served first, we didn't receive it until after we had received our drinks and salads, making it 40 minutes into our dining experience. As we waited for our food, two ladies were seated right behind us. Throughout our time there, our server only seemed to cater to these ladies, attending to them every chance he walked by while ignoring us. Despite placing our entree order before the two ladies arrived, they received their food mere minutes after we did, even though we had already been in the restaurant for an hour and 20 minutes. Once we received our food, the server failed to check if we needed more water, despite our glasses being empty. When we finished eating, we requested a to-go box for my girlfriend. However, the waiter prioritized attending to the two ladies instead of fulfilling our request promptly. When he finally returned with the box, he hastily dumped everything into it, including finished bones. By this point, I was thoroughly displeased with the way we were being treated. usually I would leave my waiter a 30 percent tip but this time I contemplated not leaving a tip at all. However, my girlfriend suggested leaving $10, which I reluctantly did. Overall, while the food was decent, the poor service completely overshadowed our dining experience. I would not recommend this restaurant to any couple looking to celebrate a special occasion.
