This restaurant is great for food and views! Was celebrating a friend’s birthday and wanted to check out somewhere we hadn’t been before. The restaurant is located at the top of the downtown Hilton and has great views - especially as the sun is setting...over the city! The dinner menu is a 3 or 4 course meal and the portions are well sized and very filling. Our server Manuela was very attentive and offered suggestions of some of her favorites and we were all pleased with our selections. Even if you don’t have time for dinner, would be worth grabbing a drink and appetizer at the bar to check out the views!More

I had drinks/food at the Lounge twice during a recent business trip, and I'm so glad I did! The bar and lounge area is very nice and has a great view. There is a limited menu but the Wagu Burger was absolutely amazing and so...was an orange souffle I had for dessert. If you like old fashioneds, do NOT miss the smoked old fashioned at this bar. It's done the right way! Tranette is a wonderful bartender and for the two nights I was there, I ended up in great conversations with other travelers. I cannot speak to the regular restaurant, but if you want a great drink and elevated bar menu, I highly recommend this place!More

We were in Atlanta for business and had a pretty crazy day. We didn’t bring the clothing for the fancy side of this restaurant but they have a bar / lounge side with amazing views and great food. Not an entire menu, more like bar...food with burgers. It is fancy bar food though. The ambience was a perfect place to have a cocktail and unwind. We split the wagu burger and homemade chips, highly recommend!More

Superior Dining Experience with French Inspired Tasty Menu, Good Service in an Attractive Room Atop the Downtown Atlanta Hilton Atlanta is America’s new Michelin club city. Great restaurants abound. Talented chefs from around the world enjoy doing tours here. Nikolai’s Roof is an Atlanta classic...that probably belongs in the club. After boarding the glass elevator to the top floor with dazzling views of the city one steps into a very elegant art deco room. One can choose the 3 or 4 course option ($89 or $100) and selects among a variety of options for each course. We enjoyed the: “Starters” - winter soup (pumpkin carrot bisque with ciabatta slice adorned by pear paste). Extraordinary. - Sweet potato and lump crab with granola. Transcendent. “Entrees” - filet mignon with cannoli of kale. Phenomenal. - Scallops (3 large) on Parmesan risotto and grilled cauliflower. Superb. “Dessert or Cheese” - dark chocolate sorbet (mousse actually) with ground Oreo cook crumb-like garnish. Heavenly. - Ricotta cheese on walnut and cranberry. Breathtaking. “Cocktails” - Anastasia (vodka and elderflower, lemon and Prosecco). Magnificent. - Riviera martini. Excellent. - Hot revolver smoky old fashioned. Very good. It is a fun room. Could benefit from soft jazz. Younger assistant server will grow with training. She was friendly but twice reached across our plates to remove an item or pour water. We waited to meet the chef but she had a large party and wasn’t able to come out. We will go back soon. This kind of magic deserves the respect of enjoying the entire menu.More

Tonight is one of the most disappointing experiences I have had in fine dining in Atlanta in 48 years. I went to this restaurant over 50 times over the last 45 years but the dinner we had tonight was a far cry from its 5...Diamond past. First the service was incredibly slow. We arrived at 6:40 PM and finally received our appetizer at 8:15 PM. It was this way all night and they never could seem to deliver the right dish to the right person. Next, the food was not only short on the amount served but the flavor and temperature it was served. They used to serve (3) piroshki’s per order and now it’s (2). The plate they serve it on actually has a place for (3) but now they fill one of them with Bernaise sauce instead of serving it on the side. Next, the Lamb Chops were overcooked and cold. Lastly, the Grand Marnier souflee had no Grand Marnier sauce. Instead it was some type of orange whip that was so bad I tried to take it off where they put it on my souflee. Lastly, if you include the gratuity in the bill please say something instead of listing suggestion percentages to tip. If there was one bright spot it was the gentleman filling glasses with water, who also brought bread and butter. As far as its rating on Trip Advisor - it might be in the top 500 restaurants in Atlanta but certainly not #5.More

Loved this restaraunt. My husband and I went with another couple and had one of the best experiences ever! Since we'd already had dinner at another establishment, we came here for appetizers and dessert. First off, the view from every window is breathtaking. The food...was amazing. Kuddos to Chef Daniel, who came out to check on us. He's a keeper. Had raw oysters served with a strawberry topping. I would have never thought those two would go together, but it was outstanding. Also had the souffle and a very tasty martini. Our waiter, Vassil, was attentive, and knowledgeable about the restaurant and it's history. He was professional, caring, and took pride in his work. I enjoyed having him as a waiter. My husband and I plan to re-visit this estabisment for a full meal. It would be our pleasure!More

Arrived early for our reservation and got seated right away. I ordered a four course meal while my mom ordered the three course meal. Food came out very fast and it was delicious. I highly recommend getting the asparagus soup, duck breast, and key lime...Panna cotta. I think the best part about our entire dining experience was our server Manuela. She was very helpful on what to order and offered really good advice. Also, I have to mention that the view was spectacular as well. Towards the end of our dinner around 7:30. The entire restaurant became packed so if you want to sit by the window, maybe get an earlier reservation.More

Partner and I made reservations for Fri night dinner. 530 seating time was quiet with a beautiful easterly view of the city. Manuela made our experience fun with her quick wit and excellent service. It’s worth doing all 4 courses to experience the chef’s range...of flavors and techniques. Don’t skip dessert it’s fabulous. All our courses were perfectly cooked and timed. Would recommend and definitely come back for early seating. As restaurant filled, it got very loud and was hard to have conversation.More

It appears this restaurant is CLOSED-visited November 2021 and it is completely dark and all the lights on the entire floor are out. It actually looks like a scene from a scary movie.
