Great food, even better service!Had the clams and duck for starters. Absolutely amazing! Hubby had the lamb with the most delicious chimichurri. I had the steak frites with bone marrow. So rich and super yum! Our server Mike has served us every time we have gone for the last 4 years and he is hands down the best server I have ever had the pleasure of dining with. He remembers my preferred brand of rum for my cocktail and is always ready with a great wine recommendation for my husband. He is very knowledgeable on the menu and has never steered us wrong on suggestions for dishes or pairings. If you have room for dessert, let him talk you into the turtle ice cream sandwich. It was fantastic! Thanks to the chef for the great meal and to Mike for his wonderful service!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBambara AgainI have dined at this restaurant three times in the space of a decade. Each time I have been impressed with the level of care they take in crafting a dish. Foodies will not be disappointed. For less experienced diners, plan on upward of a Franklin for a couple, but you'll leave with no regrets. Prepare to be dazzled.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful, creative foodWe had great food and the staff were sensitive to our time constraints. The only down side to Bambara is that is it just so expensive. And the wines are just off the chart expensive.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic dinnerGreat food, cocktails, and wine.

The food is delicious, the ambience is wonderful, and the service is ALWAYS outstanding. I look forward to my trips to SLC so I can again see what the chef has created for this admirer.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMKudos Bambara!Celebrated our sons 20th birthday here. Since we are from out of state, we Phoned ahead and they recommended a local bakery (Carlucci's) for cake, which was an excellent recommendation. Bambara noted our sons birthday and went so far as to print off special menus with his name and Happy Birthday on them as keepsakes!
All entrees were excellent, especially the lamb.
Once again, Bambara exceeded our expectations.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AM10th wedding anniversary dinnerGreat food. Great wine list. Great service.

Food and service was great!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMIn general, the food was veryIn general, the food was very good. I especially enjoyed the cheese plate selection and pâté. Wine selection was great. My tuna plate was a bit of a disappointment. It could've been a bigger portion of tuna for the price and the bean + chard + reduction stuff was too salty. But my husband did enjoyed his steak; he reports it was perfect. The service was okay. Even though the overall experience did not compare to the bar we have placed it in the past, I would still come back because the atmosphere, food, and service tends to be exquisite. We breakfasted there for the first time the next day. So yummy and fun!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is our second time diningThis is our second time dining at Bambara, and it didn't disappoint.
