"We came here expecting ... something. Good good, ambiance, service, nightlife ... anything. We left with a long bill and a longer list of complaints. Our food was well below par and the service was absolutely abysmal despite the dining room being 90% empty on a Friday night--and that's no exaggeration. You'd think that with that kind of staff-to-guest ratio the service would be spot-on, but the kid serving us couldn't help tripping over his training wheels. Whether it's the location, clientele, or some other factor, this space just can't hold down a decent restaurant for love or money. There are too many good places in Midtown to eat than to waste your money in this hellhole."

"The farm to table concept can already be skeptical but TRACE does a really nice job at making it realistic. Great vegetarian options and the flavors were magnificent.
Also great just prior to attend the Symphony. Give yourself at least 1.5 hours."

"Upon entering the hotel you are met by a doors man and ushered upstairs to what one knows will be a sublime experience. The overall scenic aesthetic set the stage. Plush seating and elegant decor made it inviting and refined. Once inside and seated high ceilings and luxurious fixtures, coupled with top-notch customer service and delicate smells had me on sensory overload. The overall environmental feel was grade A. A full bottle of water in assorted options and a special Thanksgiving menu laid before us with soft music and dramatic views set the tone. The seating was extremely comfortable and the benches were elegantly modern and chic. Our drinks were beautiful and well mixed. The food portions were well sized and everything cooked and seasoned perfectly. The server was efficient and pleasant, offering suggestions and even explaining the menu to us. She even wrapped our food for us. I would rather enjoy another visit and definitely plan on doing so again."

"Good food, interesting desserts, good service. Try the winter squash cheesecake if you want something different. It has a pumpkin spice flavor. Both the ribeye and bavette steaks are good. However, be prepared to wear your coat in wintertime and be offered a blanket to cover up with. Only one thermostat works for the whole floor (restaurant and lobby) despite there being a separate thermostat in the dining room. 67 degrees was chilly for dining in an industrial/modern style dining room. Numerous patrons the evening we were there (late November) were wearing coats and jackets."

"We had a wonderful women's brunch at Trace after staying at the W hotel for the weekend. The food options on the menu are refreshing takes on traditional entrees. The decor and overall room layout is uniquely open. The service that day was lacking unfortunately. The restaurant was not packed but the service was slow to seat, serve, and check-in throughout the course. Maybe it was an off day for them...I would consider giving them another try."

"We stopped in on our way to Symphony hall on a Sunday night early. We were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. The farm to table food was excellent - we had the Salmon, the young chicken, and the Brussels Sprouts. Shared a piece of carrot cake, which didn't quite live up to the server's billing, but was still OK. The seating arrangements were nice, comfortable, and the restaurant was nice and quiet, even as it filled up. We'd recommend it."

"This was our first trip to Trace. Although it was conveniently located to the High Museum, the Alliance and the Symphony Hall, it could not a called a "very good" experience. The ambiance was mediocre. Unmatched seating at the table was just one of the things that made us feel that the restaurant just wasn't up to its host's quality. Trace is located within the W hotel's property.
The wait staff was too eager to tell us repeatedly that she could not vouch for menu items that contained pork because she doesn't eat pork. Once was sufficient to establish that she had no opinion on the items; it need not have been mentioned at all; there seemed to be a somewhat 'judgmental" attitude about eating pork that certainly need not have been stated more than once and probably should not have been mentioned at all.
My rib eye steak - the most expensive item on the menu - was too thin and too tough and too dry. My companions ordered the fish that they judged "all right". My spouse had the shrimp and grits that was very good.
The price was quite moderate for a midtown restaurant. The restaurant was by no means full - in hindsight, for good reason."

"We got seated, but got up and left after 10 minutes of not being waited on.
Won't be going back.

"There's a disconnect between the menu price and the billing; the menu price is lower and it was challenge getting the waitress to notice it. Her final response was "it's the system". A manager helped to make the adjustments. He was helpful. For a few items like the southern breakfast and the kids breakfast, these items come with coffee and juice. It's in the price. We asked the waitress to correct twice before asking the manager to intervene. Ambiance and décor was excellent as always. It's bright with vibrant colors and warm feel, yet the food wasn't as warm. I'm mixed about recommending this place and mixed about whether I'll return."
