A really good dining experience. Server Chris made stellar recommendations; started with the shrimp corn chowder (amazing!), and the coffee-spice-rubbed filet w/risotto (rubbed with same mixture) was out of this world good. All in all a great evening.

We were vacationing in Atlanta and went for dinner to Sear as we were staying at the Marriott. It was the best dinner of our vacation! Great lamb chops and the service was excellent... the chef sent some ice-cream to my kids :-)

This was my second time eating at SEAR. Each time I have tried something different on the menu and they did not disappoint. Best Ribeye Steak with a Perfect SEAR, the Pork Chops are juicy and delicious and the Short Rib Bolognese (pic below) was awesome. Awesome location convenient with valet parking.

My first impression was "wow, lots of room". My biggest gripe with most places is the crowded spaces. Im a big guy and need some room around me because i get claustrophobic. But this place is wide open with lots of space, high ceilings, and feels very comfortable. Service was excellent, food was pretty good. My only negative comment is the drinks from the bar are small and the liquor is watered down. I expected better for those prices.

We had a group dinner in a private room. The service was wonderful and the food just as good. Convenient to get to if you are staying in one of the downtown hotels, it's located in the Marriott Marque and you can get there using one of the several indoor walkways. Not as pricey as Ruth Chris or Ray's but the food equally as good.

I thought it was overpriced for the little food we were served. The food was just ok. The steaks were overcooked and small. The staff was very professional and accommodating. The environment was beautiful. Overall, the food was a disappointment but the staff were very nice.

The service was not very poor. I’ve dined here in the past with just the opposite experience. I prefer restaurants with consistency and this most recent experience was unfortunate. The food was fair not the best steak and was cooked to what I specified when ordering. I would tell anyone dining hear after this most recent experience it’s worthier going to be a hit or mess.

Though the hotel itself was very impressive, this particular eating establishment was nothing more than average. The food was rather bland, the shrimp cocktail had hardly any flavor and the cocktail sauce was runny. The steak was charded with an awful, bitter aftertaste. The complimentary chocolate strawberries were the best part of the meal. Wine selection rather limited. SEAR might be great for hotel visitors, but for a special occasion, I would not recommend it. The prices are steep for what you get. But unlike higher rated restaurants whose higher prices are justified, this is more likely due to being in a hotel rather than related to the quality of the service or the food.

I had a great time dining at SEAR. I was there to celebrate my 21st birthday and they did an amazing job accommodating my friends and I. The food was delicious (I had the 8 oz. filet mignon - so good), the ambiance was wonderful, and the service was very attentive and kind. I would recommend this restaurant for celebrating a variety of occasions or even for a nice casual dinner.

My employees and I travel to Atlanta every January on a buying trip for my shop. One of the three nights that we are there we eat at Sear. We look forward to it each year and are never disappointed. The food is wonderful and the many layered chocolate cake is always worth waiting a year for. We will be back!!!

When we arrived at the restaurant we were seated promptly. The server came to the table while we were discussing business and realized not to interrupt. She very nicely walked away and came back a few minutes later.

The food was served as requested and was very good.

The food was excellent. I had scallops—perfectly cooked. My husband had the New Years three course dinner—strawberries and champagne, salad, filet, and dessert. It was definitely a football crowd. A little noisy, people in jeans and football garb. The service was so so. Don got his entree before he finished his salad and there was not enough room on the table for both. Restaurant was not full. I think it would be a totally different experience had there not been a game the following day.

The steak was odd. Very bitter. Never had a bitter steak before. The lobster ravioli would have been good if the lobster hadn’t been over done and someone hadn’t drizzled balsamic vinegar over the cream sauce. Doesn’t everyone know vinegar curdles cream? Ugh.

The service was pretty good. The drinks weren’t bad! It was quiet and the ambience was soothing. The food? That kinda sucked.

Oh, except for the corn crab chowder. My husband reminded me that was really good.
