The sun dial is my 8th wonder of the world! Excellent staff, great food, and a view that is truly breathtaking. This was the absolute perfect place to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we’re definitely looking forward to many more date nights at this establishment!

This was a last minute reservation for 7 people. I was a little skeptical that we were able to get a table so easily but options were limited and this place had 4.5 stars overall. Other than the wonderful view, the bar and dining experience were TERRIBLE! First, the bar and restaurant "aren't affiliated" so if you have a drink you have close out your tab before going to your table. No big deal except it took 25 minutes to get a drink and another 10 minutes to get the bill. At the table we asked to have wine decanted (didn't happen). When food was served, 5 meals were served and 2 weren't (manager and waiter said waiter forgot to put in 2 of the orders - I had to go find them to get an answer). It took 20-30 minutes for the 2 missing meals to arrive while everyone else's meals got cold. The manager asked what he could do and I said don't charge for those 2 meals and apologize to our table. He said ok but ended up only taking a 10% discount (and giving us each a glass of inexpensive champagne). The food itself was dry, tasteless and the presentation looked as if the food came off a buffet. Oh, and the rotation was broken, so the claim to fame rotating restaurant couldn't even be enjoyed. Two side notes: 1) Someone else told me (after the fact) they recently had a similar bad experience at Sundial and someone on the elevator down from the restaurant said "oh no, don't eat at Sundial, just go for the view and drinks.) 2) I had another group dinner earlier in the week at Polaris above the Hyatt. That is also a rotating restaurant with a view although not as high up. However, the service, food, presentation and ambiance were all amazing so I would recommend go there if you are looking for a view and a good dining experience.

Overall we had a wonderful experience. There was a live band playing so added a nice ambience. Food was presented well and delicious. Prices matched the upscale restaurant but highly worth it for the view and the ambience. Amazing views of Atlanta especially with the sunset. Only downfall would be that if you have a group of 5 you get put on a small round table which gets a little cozy. Not all business people want to be that close to one another at a meal. Again overall an amazing experience!

The food was great. Best meal I've had. One thing I was upset about was the seating. I did request a view of the west side so we could see the sunset, which didn't happen. But the view of the park was still great.

Very disappointing evening.
The biggest attraction is the rotating deck and the panoramic view.
The deck has not worked in almost two years but the Resturant is not very forth coming in letting their guests know this.
Food was ok but not great. Certain not not worth the price they are asking.
Service level was good and very polite waiters and servers.
Will not revisit for some time to come.

We went for the 4th of July and the food was horrible, especially considering the cost at $100 per adult drinks not included. The fireworks were beautiful but you paid for the view as all else was not good. They didn't allow you to reserve a seat and people were displaced everywhere.

As everyone knows, since the incident last year the restaurant no longer spins. The view is tremendous, and the service very good, but without the "spinning" it is hard to justify the prices charged.

The food was good - fresh and nicely prepared, so you can't go wrong for a nice evening out.....just disappointing that one of the main attractions is "offline". Ambiance was nice, but probably because the restaurant was less than half-full.

We were disappointed that the view to the south is the only view available for lunch. We were surprised when our bill reflected a charged of $2.00 per person for water. The food was better than average, but expensive. Our server was very pleasant, recommending the delicious bourbon pecan pie for dessert - which was the highlight of our meal.
