    We had a 7:30 reservation. By 9:15, we had only received waters and appetizers. We inquired secersl times with waiter, but no assurance or real concern for our dining experience. We decided to leave at 9:30, as we were mot interested in eating a steak that late in the evening. Not sure if this is the norm but the restuarant was not that full. Very disappointing ending for a Valentine's dinner. Various staff including management and hostesses, passed us multiple times with no notice to our empty table. Seems the activity at the bar took priority. At least the soup we had was good.

    Do not dine here. They are terribly short-staffed. The kitchen seems confused about the menu. Items had to be sent back twice to be corrected. Service was extremely slow with an hour wait for appetizers. The ambiance was dry and quiet. We endured all of this for the food to be mediocre at best. Not only will I never return to this restaurant, I will never return to this hotel for allowing this to be a part of their customer experience.

    We had a reservation for Xmas tea that was not sent from Open Table to the restaurant. So when we arrived there was no record of our reservation and therefore no kitchen prep for tea. Very disappointing as we had an out of town guest with us. The staff comped part of our meal which helped but we ended up just having lunch from a very limited menu of which they were out of several things. So not great.

    The menu and photos looked amazing. In reality the tables looked more like a diner. Two other people besides us 7pm Saturday night. Food took a long time though hardly any patrons. Food less than mediocre. Truffle fries weee just regular fries with dead green dried herb on top. Salad swimming in dressing. Gosh wasn’t fresh and was over cooked. Server tried to compensate and was very sweet. Two servers had an argument in the middle of the restaurant loudly. Thought it was to be an elegant evening but the ambiance and sticky menus and bad food was more like a truck stop. Waitress only saving grace.

    The meal was extremely overpriced, the food was cold and not good. They didn’t have our reservation when we arrived and tried to sit us directly next to the band’s speaker even though the place was empty. And fought us that the other tables were reserved, even though we had a reservations and those tables were never sat the entire time we were there. I would not go back again.

    The food was fantastic, as was the service of our waiter. However, actually getting a seat in the actual restaurant rather than the bar area was a bit of a duel. When we made the Open Table reservation, we had assumed we would be seated in the restaurant proper, as there was no mention we would not. The staff initially tried to seat us in the more crowded and noisy bar area. (If we had wanted to go to a bar, we would have made a reservation for a bar). We persevered, and were indeed finally seated in the restaurant itself. The restaurant itself is very nice, and once seated there, the evening was enjoyable. If the management wants to seat people only in the bar area, it should say so on Open Table.

    Valentine’s Day dinner (9:00 reservations). I really wish any member of the staff would have checked in with us after i voiced how long it took just to get my drinks (over 25 minutes). This was a dinner that we looked forward to and cost over $350. All the food was good when it eventually came out. There were no visits from the server… no offers of drinks to keep us patiently withstanding an obvious difficult night for the restaurant. What should have been an impressive night for me and my wife turned into me apologizing for not picking another place. This isn’t a review I wanted to write and and I could have forgiven so much with the right attention or attempt at service after the fact. I’d love to try it again but with so many choices out there, I just don’t expect to risk another stressful night out. … if I ever hear from someone over there I will go in with an open mind and would rate them fairly.

    We went here for Valentine’s Day with an 8pm reservation and did not get our entrees until after 10:30pm. When we did get entrees, my steak was cold and the Brussels sprouts were piping hot, the Mac and cheese had a collection of oil in the bowl, and we had not even had our water replenished or been offered a drink or something for the inconvenience until we asked for the check to leave at which point our entrees magically appeared. The restaurant was not very crowded, there was a prixe fixe menu that should have made the meals come out more smoothly, but still it was the longest wait for the bad food I’ve had in a long time. My husbands corn risotto and salmon were delicious.

    My expectation was that there would be a nice, quiet area to sit in normal table and chairs. There was nothing but a Lounge and the Bar. The service was good but the seating and surroundings were below my expectations. Way over priced for the experience that was provided.

    This is a lounge not a dinner restaurant where reservations are needed. The “restaurant” is not open for dinner. There is basically a lounge where you can order food.

    They are on a limited menu which is fine but was not advertised as such on their website. I made the reservation based on the full menu that is listed on the website. You have your option of buffet or ordering off of the limited menu. When we sat down, after about 15 minutes we eventually had to wave someone down to order water, coffee and let them know we wanted to order from the limited menu. The server rarely checked on the table, forgot requests for water or coffee and sides. We had to flag her down every time and ask for things for a second time. Eventually we gave up on things and asked for the check.

    This is not a restaurant it is a lounge. We made reservations for a birthday dinner, on arrival we were told the restaurant is only used for breakfast. They serve dinner in the lounge and we were seated at lounge tables and chairs… Impossible to eat comfortably from. It’s such a shame because it is such a beautiful place, and the food is really good, especially the she crab soup. But the service is so terrible. From the slow Valet, to indifferent bartenders, to incredibly slow white staff. You are not treated the way a place with such ambience should treat their guests. This was my second visit here, because I decided to give them a second chance. I’m sorry to say it will be my last. There are too many great restaurants in Atlanta to settle for less than.

    It simply did not meet the upscale, luxury expectation set in the advertisement, or of any other high end hotel bruch experience we had ever had. We were seated in the general dining room with everyone who did not purchase the Father’s Day Brunch, the hotel’s red-eyed guests who rolled out of bed and shlepped it down to the chow line in their bed head, shorts and undershirts. The hostess tried to seat us at a dirty table. Ambiance was no-music, fussy children and kitchen noise. Not a tablecloth to be found. No one greeted us to explain the set up. Service was slooooow, to scarce. They hotel simply opened a connecting room with a few non-breakfast items and allowed the Father’s Day brunch patrons to have full access to all buffet offerings. The food was cold, tasteless, options extremely limited, Only water, coffee, or OJ offered. Our bunch was miserably disappointed, and left hungry. It was truly one of the more expensive dining disappointments we had ever experience. We would have been better off at Waffle House or McDonalds. At least we would not have felt so ripped off.

    Maybe it was an off day or time, but there were zero staff. Zero. And no other diners. We decided to sit at the bar instead and waited 20 minutes for someone to show up, and then it took him another 10-15 minutes to notice us. The food was fine, but not worth the service.
