They were very short staffed. We were there for our anniversary dinner. Ordered wine to start, but had to remind and didn’t get it until dinner came. Ordered an appetizer that never came. The wine was comped and the app wasn’t charged, so everything worked out on the bill. Our server was great, however, they just had her working the bar plus tables so she was doing well just to keep up. That was the best thing about being there, Iris, our server. Again, if they had been staffed properly it might have been a different experience.

Bar/ restaurant located in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency Downtown. It was empty at 1pm on a Sunday.
I was hoping for a brunch menu. They serve breakfast til 11am and then switch to lunch. So that was a disappointment.

We both got the Shrimp and Grits. Tasty but I was thrown off by the presentation. It came with a broth on the top so that it looked like a bowl of shrimp soup. Apparently I was supposed to stir the broth into the grits that were hidden below but I spooned most of it off into my salad bowl. Then, put some back in because that was where the flavor was. Tails were left on so they had to be handled but that's typical.

The Bloody Mary was yum. Service was good

We were staying at the Hyatt for a conference and the food was so great the first night we came in, that we went back a few times instead of venturing out.

While the service was excellent, my food was terrible. I ordered the steak salad and there was so much fat on the steak that I spent more time cutting it off than eating it.

The service was excellent, we ordered a fried chicken dinner to split and the kitchen took care of sharing it for us, which I appreciated. However, the chicken was not thoroughly cooked, and the mashed potatoes were flavorless.

The food was AWESOME! Fresh, delicious, and nutritious. Catfish on a lunch buffet that is grilled and good. not overcooked or dry or covered in some weird sauce. Delicious. The lemon bars were to die for! I did both breakfast and lunch buffet. Grits were perfect. Fruit was ripe and juicy, full of flavor. Yogurt and toppings were great consistency snd flavor. The only problem, not enough room in my stomach for sll this goodness. I spoke to several colleagues who all had the same experience. Excellent value.

Our visit was on Saturday, January 19th. Food was great! Experience at the beginning was not so great. The hostess who greeted us was sweet and seated us very quickly. The server seemed very distracted and not attentive to our needs, not sure why. She ended up telling us she was going home due to sickness but still stuck around to do other side tasks which was another thing we did not understand. Another server "Iris" took over and she was excellent from that point until the end of our visit.

We come to Atlanta every year for the gift Mart. We eat at many restaurants in the area and Sway is one of our favorites - we never miss the chance. The chef and servers are always so attentive. My wife has a very difficult gluten allergy, and they are always able to point out which things are okay for her to eat. Food is always delicious! And we love the buffet style offerings, which allow us to try a little bit of everything!
