    My husband and I went to Polaris as my 45th Birthday Gift!! I was amazed by our experience--the class, ambiance, design, and beautiful 360 degree views of the city!! Everyone was extremely professional and we didn't come across one frowning face! Su was our waitress; I cannot say enough about this young lady!! She went above and beyond to accommodate our every need--from taking the perfect pictures to consulting with the chefs concerning my dietary preferences!! The food was absolutely delicious, leaving us wanting seconds (and thirds)!! They even surprised me with a Birthday Dessert of my choice!! I absolutely recommend this restaurant as a first date, intimate celebration, or meeting place!!! We will definitely be returning!!!!

    25th anniversary, it was our first time dining at Polaris. We were blown away by the very friendly and very professional service, as well as the food that was prepared to perfection. Haley, our waitress, went over the top to provide great service and answer all of our questions about the menu. In today’s post-COVID environment, finding 5-star service and 5-star cuisine is more challenging than ever, but you will not be disappointed.

    Limited menu but everything we tried was good. Felt pricey for just a regular evening out. Lighting was atrocious - at certain times the overhead lights are so bright you feel like you are in an operating room.

    The atmosphere was amazing! The drinks were very strong, and I believe the food could’ve been a little bit better. The mashed potatoes seem very commercial. The steak was done well, but the gravy felt like it was more commercialized as well.

    Love a rotating restaurant! Enjoyed the lounge seating. Food was good. Drink options were not good though, and what they had was way overpriced. And I wish you were open for lunch too, at least on weekends. Valet service was free with validation, which is good, but valet service was pretty terrible. They were having a hard time finding cars for people who weren't even there, we were the only ones there but had to wait a LONG time for them to get car, the woman behind the glass at desk completely ignored me while she was counting something or other for a good while, shushed me when I said hi there. The guy who finally brought the car was nice, just flustered.

    I had a great experience at this restaurant, the ambience and views were amazing, and I loved the lounge seating with comfortable couches. However, the service took a little long but our server was wonderful and had the best attitude, and our food was definitely fine dining, and a twist on what we expected but overall flavors were powerful and nice. Would definitely recommend!

    This was the best meal I’ve had in Atlanta in a very long time, starting with the apps (the octopus was perfectly executed) all the way to the duck (which was also prepared to perfection with the perfect crisp). Drinks were worth the wait. And the build out is simply fantastic with a great eye for detail. All the staff were super welcoming, attentive, and friendly.

    The remodel is beautiful! Our Server Su was fantastic! She had great recommendations for drinks with each course. She was spot on! We split the charcuterie board and the poached pear salad. Local cheeses and honey comb from the bees on the roof. For entrees we ordered the crusted sea bass, filet, and the duck. Each one was delicious and cooked perfectly to order. For dessert we split the Blue dome chocolate dessert and the sweet potato cheese cake. Our plates were clean. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

    The views were so great! The food was amazing. The open kitchen was so neat - especially seeing the honey being used from the adjacent roof where it’s harvested! The chef chatted with us, smoked bourbon was served from a box, dessert was so good, and everything was beautifully plated.

    It exceeded our expectations. The food was truly an experience and fabulous. We had sea bass and fila. The olive bread and butter was very unique and delicious. The dessert was out of this world. As parents with busy kids we loved the laid back atmosphere that was quiet and peaceful. Lounging on chairs and sofas while eating dinner and looking over the landscape was relaxing. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and full of helpful tips and facts.

We had the charcuterie board which had non-pork options, octopus, tofu bulgogi, and chocolate mousse! Our server had been there since the being and was so knowledgeable about the menu!
