The view was beautiful. The atmosphere was sterile . The food was mediocre at best. We made the mistake of buying appetizers, entrees and drinks. I would suggest that you come here for a drink and an appetizer and enjoy the view. Go elsewhere for your meal. There are so many good restaurants nearby.

Enough can not be said about the views! Rotating at a slow pace while you dine, you will get a panoramic view of Atlanta, GA and on a clear day much further! High above the streets at 72 stories, it is a grand experience! The food is a little on the expensive side, but the experience is worth it. Menu is not extensive but does offer main categories of items. Servers are great and attentive. Great place to celebrate a birthday or anniversary!

72 stories up Westin hotel tower! The tables are arranged in a circle. The whole area rotates. The views are spectacular. A full rotation takes about an hour. As if that wasn't enough, the menu is good and the prices reasonable. We thought we would be unlikely to get in without a booking, but no; straight in. We expected either a charge to get it, or high prices. A bill of $50 for 2 which included a generous tip, de rigueur, in the US, but only soft drinks. Not the usual American piles of fries but much more modest portions. We each had a steak based salad and both were excellent. Almost worth visiting Atlanta for by itself which is a jolly good thing since there is little else unless you want to see how Coke is bottled. (I didn't: I worked in a vinegar factory when I was in my teens.) Oh, and the Aquarium which is great if you like that sort of thing. The area was regenerated by the Olympics but one wonders why they couldn't have made the Central Park a bit bigger.

Such a wonderful view in this revolving restaurant. Time your meal for sunset or fireworks over Turner Field at the end of a Braves game. As far as a great foodie experience....did I mention a great view of Atlanta?

There were five us us that went to dinner last night and everyone in our party was so disappointed. All five of our meals came from the kitchen cold...cold...So I'm not sure that the flavor would have been different if the food was hot, but the pork chop, the salmon, the shrimp and the lamb were all cold and it took forever to get the waiters attention so needless to say we were at this establishment longer than we wanted to be and no longer hungry once he did come to try and make it right. If you are going to invest in a good meal go somewhere else.
