In late December 2018, Sear restaurant reopened its doors to a new chapter as Atlanta Marriott Marquis’ in-house fire-inspired American eatery. With a completely renovated space and a reimagined menu, Sear is repositioned to be a top downtown Atlanta restaurant for both locals and visitors alike.

An alternative to mainstream steakhouses, Sear provides diners a menu developed from locally-sourced ingredients curated by the hotel's award-winning culinary team.

Taking cues from hotel architect John C. Portman, Sear’s facelift invites people in from the buzzing hotel lobby with stunning sliding doors, opening up the space to passersby. Adorned with art by local talent and complimented with a mix of wood, metal, concrete and leather elements, the space mixes farmhouse ambiance with industrial style.

Beautiful Restaurant: great service, excellent food.
I had the halibut special, mash potatoes and carrots.
All were fabulous! The lamb chops were also very good. The wedge salad was bid enough to share and very tasty !
We will go back!

Waited almost an hour to get food (which most of the table ordered salads). 3 salads were ordered (same order) and one salad came without apples and a very small amount of figs. The waiter seemed overwhelmed, kept saying they were extremely busy but not all tables were full. For 5 people, the tab totalled 100.00. Very expensive for a lunch menu and definitely not worth the price given the service and quality of food.

The amount of time it took to have our food delivered to our table has led to an unwillingness to return at this time. The food was good but the wait to me seemed unreasonable to say the place was not very busy when we went.

Dinner options at Sear were limited. The service was great. The tomato bisque soup that came with a small grilled cheese had too much salt. The special fish was a little too dry — felt like it sat after cooking for a bit before it was served.

Service was good !

lamb chops, short rib, and beer poached shrimp were great, but not worth 125.00 before the tip. i've definitely had better meals for 150.00

Provided a great venue for a casual business dinner that did not break the bank. The food was very good and the ambience fine; open and warm and not stuffy and overbearing.
All good.

The only issue I had with SEAR was the wait staff. They were slow with food even when not really busy and waited over an hour for checks at end of dinner. I would recommend for food but make sure to let people know that if took over 4 hrs to have a meal.

Something was off about the whole meal. Both of us got the 28 day age steak. This is something we had before. The taste was slightly off. It did not taste the same as our last two meals. We suspect that the Dragon Con rush may have had an effect on the quality. We will eat there again, but maybe not in the crush.

we acknowledge we had a large group - but the restaurant was well aware and prepared in advance for our arrival. we also acknowledge that the hotel was very busy hosting an event, but the restaurant appeared to be only 50-60% full. table was set nicely and ready for us when we arrived. the food was delicious and perfectly prepared, however the positive comments end there. after being seated for 30 minutes with only water service (which not everyone received), we approached the hostess/woman with ipad roaming the restaurant and asked for our server. she apologized and admitted she forgot to assign a server to our table. we assumed she would remedy the situation as quickly as possible, but we sat for another several minutes before a server approached us. we ordered drinks and our food. after another 30 minutes we still had not received a single beverage. we approached the hostess for a second time, and again she apologized profusely and proceeded to do...nothing. we asked to speak with the manager, and i really wish we hadn’t wasted our time with the sweet but not helpful hostess. he asked what he could do to help, and we requested a couple bottles of wine. he returned promptly with a nice pour for each of us, and our food arrived shortly after. we were ready to forgive our previous grievances but then it was time to pay the check. it took another 30 minutes for the server to settle our bill. i think if the restaurant had assigned two servers to our table our experience would have been completely different, but it just wasn’t managed well at all. i would definitely not recommend this restaurant for parties larger than 6.

Place and service was great! Food was just ok. Nothing to write home about. However the service was amazing( even though upon sitting down my wine glass had lipstick stains on it) but it was corrected immediately. The manager did a complimentary dessert which we greatly appreciated For our anniversary but again the food was just ok but the service and staff was great.

Only thing we all was disappointed with was when we got the check, we would have left additional tip, if we hadn't asked for the itemized bill, where we saw tip was included...

Came here for lunch with a friend today. First, I had a 12pm reservation which I told the hostess about, but she didn't mark it off with open table (this is the second time it has happened now). The service was non-existent, the waters were not filled for extended amount of time, and we waited ONE FULL HOUR to get our food. I got a chicken Caesar salad and my friend got a tuna wrap with fries. We ordered at 12:07pm and got our food at 1:07pm. It was PATHETIC. since we were both in our lunch breaks, we had to ask the server to wrap our food to go. Of course, to top it all off, he did not include any utensils or napkins with the wrapped up food.

Needless to say, our food was soggy and disgusting by the time we got back to the office to eat them after we wasted over an hour sitting there. If it weren't for the fact that they had free valet parking, I would have never gone to lunch there with their overpriced and underwhelming food (just under $18 for a gross chicken Caesar salad) and poor service.

When I asked why our food took so long, all I got was some lame excuse about them being busy cause of other tables. First, there weren't that many other customers - the one table with 8 elderly ladies had a reservation so they should have been prepared for that. Secondly, literally every other table got their food well before we did even though some of the showed up after us. Lastly, I think we can all agree that ONE FULL HOUR of wait time to get your food is unacceptable at any restaurant under any circumstance, especially one that charges that much for a less than mediocre chicken Caesar salad. It was one of the worst experiences I've ever had at a supposedly "upscale" restaurant. I might as well have gone to McDonald's - at least I would have gotten my food a heck of a lot faster.

I won't be back any time soon, if ever.

We showed up at 7 for our reservation. By 8:30 my wife made us leave because the food we ordered at 7:25 still hadn’t came out. There was about 15 open tables the restaurant was not even close to busy. The manager told us our food was coming out soon. lol If the manager knew about our long wait, why didn’t he ever come to our table and give us an explanation of what the heck was going on. Also bizarre was the lights kept going from bright to dim...

The food overall was not bad! However, I feel for the price range it was within, the overall flavor profiles were not worth it. Still delicious yes! But you could probably get more bang for your buck elsewhere.

We walked by Sear everyday going to market so decided to try it out our last night. I’m glad we did. My filet was perfect and my husband’s grouper was fabulous. The mashed potatoes were marvelous! I would definitely eat there again!

Way too expensive for what you got.
We paid a quarter of the price and got 2x as much food at ihop.
That’s just sad.
The food was good, just not worth as much as they charged.
