We have dined at Blackstone many times on our yearly trips to Atlanta. We have always enjoyed the great service and food. Not so this year. We dined on a Friday night, and valet parking was not offered. We had to park about a block away and walk uphill to the restaurant ( in heels in 86 degree weather). Our party of four was seated promptly and the hostess very polite. The place was about 1/2 full, if that. Our server came quickly to take our drink orders. Well, they were out of Grey Goose, Makers Mark and Belvedere. So much for our cocktails. The server gave us no time to peruse the menu. He spoke so fast that none of us could understand a word he said. We felt we were being rushed the whole time. We were all very disappointed that Blackstone took such a nose dive from last year.
