 (Atlanta)·Dined on April 8, 2017

Every aspect was excellent except for parking, which turned out horrible. My wife and her brother have eaten at Sears 4-5 times and loved it; parking was in the Marriott garage. Her brother books university events at Sears and keeps coming back for the food and service.
However, on this occasion, our anniversary, lack of parking ruined it. In the past the general manager of Marriott told brother-in law and my wife that the garage always reserved spaces for reserved diners. Notwithstanding, when we pulled in, the attendant said the garage was full even though we saw a number of open spaces. We left and garage after garage was full, so we tried the Marriott garage again explaining to the same attendant what the general manager had told my wife; he said the same reply. I asked about the open spaces and he said that was saved for the hotel manager. He still did not call or change his reply as the hotel general manager presumably was saving one of those spaces for us!
We made one more ride around and found a pay lot costing $15- after stepping out of our car she fell in a gravelly hole, turned her angle and broke her foot. Not appreciating the extent of damage we still went and the wait staff provided bagged ice for her foot.
After much pain we went to ER and she is horizontal for several days, hopefully healed in 8 weeks. I am getting sick from something I probably got from ER. 8 weeks of plans now changed.
How different the night would have been if the parking attendant had called the general manager.

Food was average at best but the real amazing item that stood out was the COLOSSAL Asparagus side dish for $8. What actually came out were 7 very small thin asparagus spears overcooked even. That is over $1 per tiny spear. We commented when they put it down. They asked was everything ok and we again commented. We did not even touch a single one of the unacceptable little overcooked embarrassments. However low and behold guess what shows up on the check? Kitchen should be ashamed, whomever sent it out should have noticed, waiter should have done something, etc.. Plenty of places in downtown to go over this place within easy walking distance.

 (Raleigh)·Dined on February 7, 2017

We had a table for 9. Two people ordered scallops. The waiter took the order, but came back much later to inform that they were out of scallops. When the food finally arrived, it was too cold to serve. My wife had the ribs; I tasted them and they were barely at room temperature. Two other people had the pork chops and they were not warm. Another guest had the ravioli which was actually cold! Shame on the kitchen for serving that up and shame on the waiter for actually bringing that over!
The waiter had to be called for almost everything; he did not check up on us to find out how everything was. Shame on him for that also.

 (Las Vegas)·Dined on February 1, 2017

Service was solid but the food was lacking. Of the 5 people that attended dinner, 4 were not completely satisfied. The scallops had a strange flavor like bleach, the lamb chops were very thin, and the Low Country BBQ shrimp had little Tasso ham on them. In fact, the amount of ham would barely qualify as a garnish. The side Caesar salad had no croutons or visible Parmesan cheese. The Romaine was finely chopped and served in a soup bowl which made it difficult to eat.

The service was very good and well coursed. The food presentation was also expertly done.

Really just an average hotel restaurant experience. Service was pretty good as the restaurant was fairly empty. "Scottish" salmon was pretty much regular farmed, but, not offensive. Scallops were bland. Shrimp app was actually tasty, not chemically treated soggy stuff.

For a hotel restaurant, SEAR exceeded expectations. My son and I fly into Atlanta and didn't feel like going out to dinner so something in the hotel was perfect. We ordered steaks and they were excellent. The service was slow but it was clear they weren't staffed for how busy the place was. It's a hotel restaurant on a main floor above the lobby so it was noisy, which was to be expected. Value wise, I haven't had that good of food for the price in a long time. The double baked potato was massive and awesome as well. A must try.

Presentation and dinner was overall enjoyable. The filet was very tasty & tender, but even though prime rib was flavorful, it was tough.
Server was very knowledgeable, but extremely over worked. He was tending to way to many tables, so I would assume that they were just understaffed for that evening. Had to wait about 20 minutes for my ticket.

My employees and I look forward to dining at Sear every January when we are in Atlanta for the Gift Show. It never disappoints. The ambience is wonderful. The steaks are always fork tender. Salad is always crisp. Waitresses are always friendly. The highlight of the evening is the 15 layer chocolate cake with ice cream that the four of us share. Definitely a fine dining experience.

Very disappointed had to send my bone in steak back twice. Ordered it medium and received a well done steak. Sent it back and received a raw steak and the third time it was medium well which I just dealt with. My friend ordered his medium and received a rare steak which he stuck with. Table next to ours gentlemen got olive oil spilt all over his sport coat that it soaked through to his dress shirt. These things shouldn't happen in a high end steak house. Had to call the manager over and she removed one steak from the bill but I will not return again.

While the steak we were served was excellent, well seasoned and cooked to the perfect temp; we will not be returning to this restaurant because the service was left a lot to be desired. Our waitress was covering too many tables and the other servers were not attentive. On more than one occasion the tables around us had to raise their voices to get anyone's attention for assistance. It was not a terrible experience, however the service we received guaranteed we will not be returning since we have so many other wonderful options in the downtown area.

Food was very good, unfortunately I cannot say the same for the services.

filet was cooked perfectly, Yukon gold mashed potatoes were also very good.

Our waiter, was often no where to be found several times throughout the evening. He didn't appear to have large tables or even multiple tables to wait on, just would disappear for long periods of time.

 (Birmingham)·Dined on December 31, 2016

The overall experience was okay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The main issue was the menu on the open plate website I used to make the reservations had items listed that had been removed from the menu. This presented a problem due to my husband being a vegetarian and the item he was going to order had been removed from the menu. Left him eating a twice baked potato and salad. In my opinion the menu items are pricey for the quality of food you receive.

I made reservations for 630 on Saturday evening. With a reservation so early I would assume a full menu would be available. It was not.

The Ribeye Steak and Scallops were not available as well as another item ( I can't recall) on the menu.

The restaurant was relatively empty and I felt as if we were rushed.

It was a busy nite, after a football game at the Georgia Dome , so service from bar was slow, but not to be disappointed, the delicious food made up for it. Porkchop huge, tender, NY strip cooked perfectly, and Scottish salmon moist and nice portion . Nice choice of sides- asparagus, mac and cheese , mashed, baked potatoes, spinach, truffle fries- not unusual, but all very tasty. Ambience good, high ceilings give feeling of spaciousness. Will return

Chose this as the venue for some business breakfasts during a conference. Despite being in a large hotel, the restaurant wasn't crowded or noisy, and service was attentive without interrupting us too much. The breakfast buffet was OK, but there were a lot of options, which ensured that everyone got something they wanted. There was a cheaper continental option in addition to the more expensive hot item buffet, plus a la carte dishes.

This has become the favored dining experience for a group of pastors that we bring to the MLKing Chapel for the meeting of the College of Pastoral Leadership at Morehouse College at least four times a year.

This group of six pastors were so pleased with the experience that I'm told they lingered for the ambiance and opportunity for good conversation.

The food is excellent, the location is quite fitting and the attentive service from reservation throughout dining is commendable.

Thank you.
