The experience was outstanding food was good. The service was great. Even thought the floor wasn’t spinning you still get great views. Definitely still one of my favorite spots in Atlanta when it comes to romantic and intimate settings.

I went there for a friends birthday. I made a reservation in advance with OpenTable but they didn't have a candle like I requested but that is my only complaint. The restaurant was fantastic. It was gorgeous views of the entire city from the 70th floor. I think its the tallest building in the city. The service was superb. The food was delicious. I got salmon on quinoa and it was absolutely divine. Also they had very nice mixed drinks though. I am definitely going back again.

My boyfriend and I were celebrating our two year anniversary, and had a lovely time! The drink in the pictures is a yummy concoction of theirs with Kahlua, and some other yummy stuff in it. They let you take home that cup as a souvenir! Our waiter was amazing and so kind! He was efficient and smiley (I know it's silly, but I love it when people give you service with a smile.. not all employees do that). It was amazing customer service, and the view of course makes the date night all the more special.

I went for dinner on my anniversary. The atmosphere and the view was good. The food was poor. After I few bites I left more than half of my plate. I had the veggie pasta which was not good. The service from the waiter was poor and not attentive. Our waiter was MIA.

We went for brunch on a Sunday, I ordered the American breakfast. The potatoes looked and tasted like they had been sitting in a warmer for several hours. The scrambled eggs were the same. No other choice but scrambled eggs. Waffle House at least cooks to order. The floor did not rotate, we were told it is under construction for about 6 months. Nice view, but very disappointed, not worth the 40 minute drive, or the money.

We had a great lunch experience. We stayed at the Westin and wanted to enjoy the view. Lunch was a good time to see the city and dress code was very casual at that time. All of the staff were very polite and hospitable.

The wheel was not spinning when we arrived. They had said it stopped half a year ago. If I would have known this I wouldn’t of made this reservation. That’s why we came! And instead of cake for my girlfriends birthday... they gave us a plastic cup.

Waitress was very nice and added to atmosphere but she had too many tables to take care of us. Food was above average. I would highly recommend the pork belly. It was amazing!!! My beer wasn’t as cold at it should be but the view makes up for any negatives.

The waiter never introduced the menu to us but we heard him do it to every other table. He also was very sparsely seen during the meal and other servers would take our plates and refill our drinks.

We were in town for the Las Vegas Aces game and we went there for my husband's birthday. It was great experience, never left the hotel and had fine dining. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was great with a view of the sunset over Atlanta from the 74th floor.

I took my boyfriend for our anniversary so he could see Atlanta as he is from Chicago. Our waitress was so disrespectful. She made him show his ID to her three times. I left my wallet at our hotel because he was paying. She said she couldn't serve me because of that. I understood even though I look far from underage. Even though my boyfriend gave our waitress his ID so he could get a drink, she said she didn't want to serve him because I didn't have mine. She didn't want to give him his drink because of me. That makes complete sense. He got a vodka martini, which was $13. He asked for it dirty so they charged him $3 more. The Sundial is great for a view but I would never give them my money. Horrible experience and on top of that, the drink was disgusting.

Absolutely everything was spectacular except for our waiter who gave us “permission” to dine since we weren’t ordering entrees, just cocktails, apps, and dessert. Felt extremely uncomfortable and judged on my appearance and age to if I had money or not when there were other diners wearing T-shirt’s and flipflops.
Still left a 20%+ tip but I suggest the restaurant retrain their wait staff.
Food was spectacular and watching the sunset was beautiful. It was unfortunately ruined by a rude judgemental waiter.

Horrible; Food was scraps from the buffet downstairs. Service couldn’t be bothered. Great view.. I was ashamed to put my family through that. Not many options in Atlanta. I would beg with the homeless before I went back there.

On the day that we were at the restaurant, it was having mechanical problems, and as a result, was not revolving. We went there specifically because we wanted to experience the restaurant revolving. Customers should have been alerted so that they could make an educated decision about whether to go there or not. However, the food was good.

Ask for Anne as your server! She is such a gem. The whole staff is fun and helpful, but Anne has those good mama feels. Every time I have someone visit Atlanta I take them to the top of the Sundial to show them around the city with a near birdseye view. I hope the rotating motor will be up and running soon! It's cozy and beautiful up there, especially in the evening.

I brought my friend for her 97th birthday, she was so impressed. Each staff member was pleasant and professional from the valet to the gift shop. In my haste getting her and her walker in my car, I forgot to tip the valet, he was so very nice and considerate, I regret that. I was too focused on traffic and getting her back home...
I am sure she will want to do this again and I will be happy to bring her

Got kicked out of the restaurant level on Sunday. I made a reservation for 6:45 on Sunday for my girlfriend’s birthday. Despite booking online and interacting with 3 hosts and a server, I was not made aware of the entree minimum until I tried to order our appetizers. Past that, the service was mediocre at best and the manager was rude. The view was beautiful, but the weak service, outdated corporate cocktail menu and nickel and dining policies clearly use it as a crutch.

The meal was 5-star, like any other fine dining in Atlanta. The aspect that sets this restaurant apart: the turntable dining room, was under maintenance. Had we known this when booking, we would have selected another restaurant. Not because this one is sub-par, simply because we would have waited until we could enjoy the entire experience. The past two times we’ve eaten here (several months between visits), the turntable has been under maintenance. I’m beginning to think there is another reason it’s down, but any transparency would be nice from the Westin or Sundial crew.

Our dining time was 7:30 (sunset dining). Rather than seat us near the west side of the restaurant, we were seated to the south. Again, just a little disappointed because we did not get to enjoy the sunset from our table, as it was my mother’s birthday celebration.

Don't go thinking it's going to be cheap for 2 it ran about $200. Still was a great experience. We had a great time and the Ferris wheel is just a few blocks down the road so we done that after dinner.

It's been a tradition in our family to go to the Sun Dial on Sun. for lunch ( when I could afford it as a single Mom with 3 little girls!) since we moved here 43 years ago. This Sunday was to continue the tradition with our granddaughter and it was wonderful. She glowed and we were so happy to share the experience with her. Thanks to all of the staff because they were all wonderful and thanks to Mimi for being such a delightful server. And our meals were fantastic too.

I was not impressed with this visit. The restaurant was not revolving as usual but there were no alerts about this when I made my reservation. This is the only reason I made the reservation- to show my out of town guests views of Atlanta. The Wagyu steak I ordered was good but the sauce on it ruined the whole steak! The chef should seriously consider changing that chimichurri sauce.
