Atlanta >Sundial Restaurant at the Westin Peachtree
“Great views, good service, average food”
“My companion said his grits cake was good.”
“So, no complains from our side about slow and poor bar service.”
“The salmon and halibut the ladies ate were great too.”
“The food is really good, and the menu changes seasonally to provide the freshest ingredients for the dishes.”
“This is a great restaurant/lounge, but it could be even better if they would simply improve their lighting.”
“am an easy-to-please person when it comes to food, and can't remember the last time I sent something back anywhere, but to have such a horrible experience with a manager when paying the price we were paying for the food was so upsetting that I am certai”
“Staff is friendly and parking is validated at the end of the night.”
“Come prepared to spend a few bucks, live jazz completes the romantic ambience.”
“The service is slow but friendly.”
At the top of one of the world's tallest hotels, the Sun Dial offers a great view to go along with dinner & cocktails
Yes, the view is amazing!! But it doesn't make up for the very, very poor service and less than mediocre food. We were 7 for lunch - the restaurant was almost empty - and we were there for over 2 hours. Our waiter, although pleasant, was not knowledgable about the food and was ridiculously slow in delivery. The food was disappointing. I had the Chicken Pecan salad which featured peaches. What I got was a place with 3 overdone chicken fingers and CANNED peaches. In Georgia? Really? The one redeeming factor was dessert - well done and well presented.
Won't be back and I won't recommend this restaurant. If you want the view, absolutely head up....but then head back down for a much better lunch!
Never ever go here got a big iron pin in food. pathetic restaurant. Got big iron pin 2 inches in food. It went into mouth and then realised something is hurting. Inside mouth bad damage can't eat anything anything salty now. Manager is too bad never ever go here. Going to doctor and decided to take action against them. Its like they want to kill me.
great for hosting out-of-towners. The prices keep me from coming here more regularly, but the Sun Dial is always on the itinerary when I have guests in town. It shows off Atlanta from a spectacular view, and offers delicious food and cocktails all hours of the day. As others have mentioned, service can be poor at busy times, but overall, the intimate environment and thoughtfully selected menu are worth the trip and the extra few bucks. In fact, I'm on my way there now, with some guests!
Don't Bother. The view is phenomenal, but that is the only positive thing I can say. Service is SSSLLLLOOOWWWWW and our waiter could not be understood as his accent was very heavy. For the prices we were paying I expected seamless, high-end service. They forgot my son's vegetables and I had to ask for a soup spoon for my soup and a steak knife for my steak, not to mention drawn butter for my lobster! At least offer me regular water or sparkling before you sneak an extra charge in...rolls were stale....steak and lobster were tiny and overpriced....my son's chicken fingers were better! Decor is very old, greasy businessmanlike....Tomato soup could have been Campbell's.....will not go again....rather spend my money at Sugo....now, that is an awesome restaurant, and it is just around the corner from us!
Nothing but a View.
We sat in the bar/lounge area and waited ~45 minutes for a server to greet us after sitting down. When we wanted refills or the bill she was nowhere to be found. The food was not good. The menu selection is small, over-priced, they were completely out of deserts, and many of the drinks were pre-mixed. Our bill was $92 for 4 drinks and 2 appetizers and our server added an 18% gratuity for a party of 4! The atmosphere is very old and the bathrooms were dirty. Also, our parking pass was improperly validated so we still had to pay to leave the deck.
I thought they might try to change their image or renovate after being closed from the tornado damage in 2008. I was wrong. You pay for a great view but get nothing to compliment it. The Sun Dial failed to stand up to any expectations one might have for a restaurant so widely known around Atlanta.
most disappointed dining experience.
One of us had a "pecan-glazed chicken /peach salad" with some type of vinegarette dressing.... the chicken had a slight pecan taste, the peaches were rock hard & otherwise the salad was completely bland.
I had the eggs benedict which had an odd tasting, weirdly cured Canadian bacon with a fried green tomato on bottom that just didn't taste right.
The dessert was good & juices were okay,
but it was overall the most disappointing dining experiences that I can remember.... I am sure there was something worse, but I don't remember.
We would have been off @ the waffle house.
Great Meal with a Spectacular View!.
The view at the Sun Dial restaurant is splendid. The food always taste great. Its a great place to eat with the kids on a special night out. Its also a great location to take your wife on a nice evening out. We have been several times and we have never been disappointed. The food is very good, but can find restaurants with better food. But the food combined with the fantastic view cannot be beat.
Great ambiance, and the bar area in the upper level is a great place to mingle with friends.
Pros: View, Ambiance
Deserving. Sun Dial deserves a good review for it's fine dining and wonderful view of Atlanta. I'm a satisfied customer with a smile on the face everytime I visit Sun Dial.
one of a kind. I am always satisfied whenever I visit this place. I am always looking forward to a sumptuous treat when I think of visiting this restaurant, and I am never disappointed. They are very consistent when it comes to delivering excellent food choices and high-quality service. Truly one of a kind.
Impeccable View. After toiling over what rating to give the Sundial, I decided to go with 3 stars. Given the spectacular view and great service, I would normally say that it deserves 4 stars, but given the high price, I decided to go with 3 stars. Its definitely worth the trip though and I would encourage you to visit...just get a drink (great wine selection) though, and skip the food.
