"The essence of pleasure is spontaneity."   ~ Germaine Greer I have a friend who once insisted that we hop on a plane to Munich to pick up Laugenbrezeln, and come right back home 24 hours later. We spent most of that weekend in airport security but it was worth it. Our recent trip to Atlanta was a similar experience. I think this one of the places listed in the book, 1000 Places to See Before you Die http://www.amazon.com/... and rightfully so. Located on the 73rd floor of the Westin Peachtree Plaza; my eyes were closed and I missed most of the Atlanta skyline going up the glass elevator. The restaurant platform, however, revolves around the central tower once per hour so we were able to see a 360 degree ang...

We're native Atlantans and that is the only reason I'm glad we went to this restaurant to say we've gone.  The view was indeed fantastic and we saw the view in broad daylight to sunset because we were there for two hours.  We ate our Thanksgiving meal there, the first course was great.  I had a goat cheese salad and my husband had a great pumpkin and crab bisque.  The turkey meal was awful.  The turkey was dry and tasteless.  The cranberries were disgusting and the stuffing was gross.  The pumpkin brulee dessert was good but the apple pie was only so-so.  We give it a 7 out of 10.  We're glad to say we've done it but we have no desire to return.  Later we went to the bar because we were staying at the Westin...

With such a fantastic view of downtown Atlanta, this restaurant can get away with mediocre food.  My friends and I stopped by on a Saturday night.  I was worried we were underdressed, but we saw a little bit of everything (wedding parties, conference-goers, families, dates, etc.).   I have no fear of heights, which is good because the glass elevator ride to the top moves fast!  I do, however, tend to get motion sickness, and even though the rotating cocktail lounge moves incredibly slow, it was a little unnerving to see the movement out of the corner of my eye.   The drinks were expensive, but the service was decent.  The food, however, was not.  We ordered the margherita pizza appetizer, and I could have sw...

One of the coolest restaurants I've ever been to! It's a great way to see all of Atlanta as you sit on the top floor of the tallest hotel in the Western hemisphere. It rotates and provides signs saying which cities/towns are in the direction you're looking at any point. There is also a ...

I went here with my husband and another family member for lunch early on a weekday.  We had made reservations online, which I would definitely recommend, since they were expecting us on the fifth floor of the Westin where they have a reception kiosk. We all had burgers, believe it or not.  Mine came with a fantastic Greek-inspired tomato and cucumber salad.  The burgers were delicious, though nothing better than you could get at Houstons or any other place with great burgers.  We had dessert, but I was jealous of our companion's dessert which looked better than ours.   The service was friendly, but not to the level that I was expecting.   The four stars come from the spectacular view that you get as you take...

Much like the Polaris, my first visit here was when I was a kid. I remember liking it a lot more than the Polaris, mainly because it is a lot higher up and can see a lot more. I have been here a few times in the past few years. It is always a fun experience. I love just sitting and watching the view of the city. It is fun in the daytime or at night, but I usually go at night. If you are eating dinner here, it is expensive. Be prepared to drop some major money, especially if you add some wine to the mix. It is a fun dating site though, definitely worth it at least once. I have never been to the upper bar floor, but have heard it is cool and useful. I will have to try it sometime. Happy Hour event anyone? I li...

First time eating here and they screwed up my birthday reservation and flowers.  The food was mediocre at best for the amount they charge.  The atmostphere is not as classy as it is advertised...

Nice luncheon spot with the great views in the revolving restaurant atop the Hyatt Hotel in downtown Atlanta, on Peachtree street.   And great at night too... as a student I once played for a date on their baby grand a...

Sun Dial has a very special place in my heart for many reasons.  Hyeon and I had our first date here; I took my family, a group of hard-to-impress and excessively meticulous people, and they really enjoyed it; and whenever I have out-of-state visitors, I take them here for "Atlanta, the Ultimate Experience." When I first dined here, I only knew Sun Dial by its reputation but I didn't know what else to expect.  I was really impressed by the interior and the famous, rotating-restaurant.  At the time, I was on a strict vegan diet, so I asked to have something off the menu.  The chef had no problem whipping up something that met my dietary restrictions.  But I didn't really enjoy my dish.  Probably something nea...
