Unexpectedly great food!! There was a DJ playing in the lounge bar below which made it a bit loud.

We had a reservation and the restaurant didn't bother to tell us it had closed due to weather. We came to the restaurant in inclement conditions and would have otherwise made different dining plans. A simple courtesy notification would have been expected. Very poor customer service.

Service was ok.... Food was ok... Loved the decor. Really nice with the pillows. I was expecting the food to fresh and good. Our fries looked like they were borderline burnt and bottom of barrel. We had to wait a few mins to even be noticed and seated.

Not as advertised. Hotel restaurant trying to pass as farm to table. Say all the right things on the site, but don't deliver in the restaurant.

The food presentation was better than the actual taste. Service was good but only one server. Nice view of the city and opportunities to enjoy the city's night life.

The portion size on the "Starter" items equals entree size. I ordered two thinking they would be small and I couldn't eat it all because the servings were plentiful. Everything was very good.

the seating area was very cute, we sat in the elevated booth area with lots of pillows. Great lighting from large windows, the shrimp and grits were good, a little lacking on the shrimp, but liked the addition of the egg

This place should not be tucked away on the second floor of a hotel- food, decor, service are all top notch and TRACE deserves an equal, physical presence with the other fine establishments in the immediate area. After immersing yourself in the fine arts scene, bypass the restaurants that you can see (and have to wait for a table) and head inside the W for this gem.

The service here was absolutely horrible. It was like we were not even there. Also,
the food took forever. I made the mistake of thinking the buffet was ready at 1000 when it was actually 1100. We ordered our food around 1015 and it did not come out until 1100. We could have just waiting for the buffet all along. The food was actually pretty good when it actually came but I will not go back here again.

Read some reviews that were critical but we had excellent meal with attentive service. Excellent location and interesting decor. Doesn't seem to be drawing crowd it deserves

We had a great overall experience here. It was very sparsely populated but that made it nice and quiet, and the service was spot on. Food was inventive, very flavorful, and everything was cooked well.

TRACE was amazing. My husband and I made reservations, but we arrived early and was seated immediately. The staff was exceptionally friendly and the atmosphere was incredible. The table we sat at was very comfortable. We both can't wait to go again.

Parking and finding out how to get into the hotel was a nightmare. When I originally booked this place I didn't know it was in the hotel. Food was ok, not great. Server was great despite everything else that the restaurant was lacking.

We arrived for an early dinner to celebrate my moms birthday, but we're running 10 minutes late. We called six times before anyone answered. We arrived and there were only 7 other tables. There was no hostess to greet us and the bartender didn't help initially, but after a minute of standing around awkwardly, he sat us. It was 20 minutes before I got up to try and find a waiter. I found one, and apparently she was the only one for all seven tables. On a Saturday night. Eventually we got our drinks and orders taken, but everything was incredibly slow. Food and drinks were just ok when we eventually got them.

I hardly ever leave reviews, but this was a particularly bad experience.

Restaurant was fairly quiet for a Wednesday night but Jessica took excellent care of us. Will definitely come back on future trips to Atlanta. Keep up the good work!

The bartender was rude and gossiped about me and my party before we arrived. He had no idea some of my party had arrived and was listening to him talk. When we arrived we asked to be seated he said we couldn't be seated without our party. He then went on to lecture us in a very condescending and saracastic tone. I advised him that he was being rude and he became argumentative. My friend confirmed this and we left. It was just unprofessional how he behaved....it was my birthday.
