    The food was decent though not overwhelmingly wonderful. The service seemed to be having an off night. I had to ask for silverware on two occasions after having it cleared. Not a big deal, but when you pay a premium for a meal, there is an expectation of excellent service. The two did not match this time. We waited longer than typical for our cocktails as well.

    We were looking for a nice place to celebrate my a birthday. The interior decor of the restaurant is very nice. Unfortunately, the A/C vents are above the tables which are located along the wall which made it uncomfortable (the party next to us had to be relocated). And the presence of fruit flies was annoying. They did try to accommodate gluten & dairy allergies. But, for the price, the food was nothing special (the seared ahi tuna was OK, the scallops were undercooked and the halibut was dry and lacking flavor). The best item was the brussel sprouts. The service was very disappointing. As far as I could tell, our waiter was only serving two parties while were were they. He was not very attentive nor visible. We won't be returning.

    Saw this restaurant being featured in the Dineoround and decide to take my brother and his wife here for their first time. My partner and I have had good experiences here in the past for anniversaries/Valentine's day which made this experience very odd. Because a couple of us were going to try the $15 dineoround deal, we were told to leave the table we had been seated at and that had already been prepared (with menu showing the $15 deal), and go to the outside patio (and was asked to grab our waters and menus as well to take outside). Apparently that deal is for outside or bar seating only. We left for the patio with the inside's staff and other guests staring at us which as one would imagine was uncomfortable.

    Salt Lake appears to enjoy their steakhouses, but many of them are inexpensive chains...they do have some nice high end chains such as Ruth Chris, but what I like about Christopher's is it's a locally owned and operated steakhouse in a beautiful old building downtown SLC. The service was excellent, ask for Seth. The food was good and the steak was cooked to perfection. It was medium rare, yet had no blood and was as tender as any steak I've had. Excellent quality. If trying to decide on a steak house in SLC, pick this one, you won't be disappointed.

    Great dining choice for myself and two friends during Dine O Round. We all ordered the lobster crowned filet mignon and it was cooked to perfection. It came with the lettuce wedge and parmesian mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious and the service was great. I had the creme brûlée for desert and it was wonderful.

    I am not a paid reviewer. My wife and I are from California and were visiting Salt Lake City for an anniversary when we went to Christopher's for an early dinner. The experience was wonderful. I was awed by the interior design of the establishment. The food was outstanding as was the service. We shared the early three-course dinner and the cost was less than $30.00. We could not have had a better dinner if we had paid four times that amount. We ordered our filet medium rare, and it arrived more on the rare side, but it turned out to be perfect. We highly recommend Christopher's if you want good food at a reasonable price and an early (prior to 6:00 pm) dinner.

    so i went to christophes on a sat. night thinking the steaks and services with be upto par with Ruth Chris steak.... WRONG.. the steaks were cold had to send them back the sides were cold (did not send them back) the service was ok, not the best or what you would expect from this kind of restaurant.. so after a 300 dollar dinner ... i would not recommend christophers at all ... I think if they want to stay in play with the other steak house they better look re-map their game plan.

    They weren't ready for us when we arrived for our reservation even though I included a note that my parents were in their 90's, in fact it was my Mother's 92nd Birthday. Everything is a la carte so my steak came with one roll. My parents had coffee with their dessert and I know they would have appreciated the cup being topped off at least once. It is a beautiful room but very dark and hard to read the menus. If there was any specials that night--no one mentioned id it.

    Jocylyn provided great service and recommendations. We will definitely return when we are in Salt Lake City. We enjoyed the "early dining" three course option, a great value. Our steaks were prepared perfectly, one medium rare and one medium. I was a little reluctant to order steak based on reviews I read from other members. Frankly, I don't agree with their reviews. We've dinned at most of the great steak houses throughout the USA. No need to drop names; we all know the establishments on that elite list. While we've had steaks that were slightly better, we've also paid more than twice as much. In the end, a good steak at a great price equals a great value.

    I called the restaurant yesterday to report the poor experience we had. That call matched our dinning experience Saturday. Too Bad! - the steak was small compared to what it should have been - the flavor was maybe a 7 compared to Flemings or Ruth's Chris. Had better at Texas Roadhouse at 1/2 the price. Aged? It didn't taste like it. - the butter was refrigerator / odor stained - the pecan salad had NO pecans - the wedge salad came with 2 table spoons of dressing - the fresh cracked pepper was never offered & was asked for

    Not only was the food fantastic, but the service was perfect. Cam was the perfect mix of attentive, yet allowed us to enjoy each other's company and our meal. My son and I each loved the filet mignon, my husband ate every bit of his ribeye and the brie appetizer was to die for. We are from Los Angeles and will definitely return when we are in town to visit our college student. Would highly recommend.

    The restaurant was in a fantastic location of downtown Salt Lake City. It's close to everything in the city and in a very cool building. We went on a Friday evening and made a reservation to plan ahead. Well, when we arrived (at 6:30) the restaurant was not busy at all but the hostess insisted on seating all guests in the same section. We were seated next to a party of 3 and a small child. Now, if I'm going to pay $46 for prine steak I certainly don't want to sit next to a table with a poorly manner child. The atmosphere was fantastic. Our sever was just ok. Really didn't make us feel special. Checked on us once. Took a while to get water. I don't understand how a slc restaurant gets away with average service with high prices.

    The food was good but the service was very slow. We arrived at 7:30 and wasn't finished until 10:45. One steak was so tough, the guest told them to take it back and they didn't bring here a replacement. 3 guests did not get their side dishes. We were not pleased with a dish and the waiter said they would take it off the bill. However, the manager came over and said no, that they would not take it off the bill. Someone in our party said that they would take the food home because she couldn't bare to see it thrown in the trash and the manager said that is why they can't take it off the bill. The three people that were splitting the meal had nothing to eat but side dishes because of this. They cannot handle groups.

    We went to Christopher's to celebrate my wife's birthday. The service was fantastic. The food other than the meat was very good. The meat was not cooked to our liking. We ordered medium well and medium and part of the meat (served in three pieces) was basically raw. I am not the type to complain so we did not. Probably will not go again.

    Took my husband for his birthday. Atmosphere was nice and service was good. Our steak was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious but our side dishes were terrible! The roasted asparagus at $9 for 7 pieces too pricey for what we got, especially since 3 pieces were burnt. The hand cut fries were soggy and mushy even after we asked them to re-fry or for a new batch. In our opinion we would rather go to Ruths Chris or Flemmings for the prices we paid at Christopher's, we know all our food would be delicious there.

Server recommended thesteak fries with my steak. I had never had them and thought it was strange to have with a very good steak. He was right they were very good. Not your normal steak fries. Several good restaurants in SLC and this has become one of our favorites.

    We wanted to try some place new, I found this place had a groupon, who doesn't like to save money? The menu looked great so we made reservations. When we walked in we got a card signed by the staff, our waiter made great suggestions. They are known for their Lobster corn dogs appetizer and it was AMAZING! Some of the best lobster we've had. We had the halibut and filet, both we're seasoned well and cooked how we asked them to prepare it. Dessert was good we tried a new dessert on their menu beinsteich cake and a classic bread pudding. The bread pudding was great, not a sharable size though, the cake topping was amazing but inside cream didn't have flavor or sugar added to it. Overall it was a great experience and can't wait for next time!

    Dined on 7/19/2014
    This experience was definitely not what I'd hoped for. We scheduled reservations for 7:00 pm. Had to wait because there was a group that came in from a big conference in town. That excuse came up several times during our dinner experience. The wait was equally long for our food. We ordered the special: Filet mignon and lobster. I ordered rare and got medium rare, the lobster was overcooked & chewy, they ran out of rolls. The romantic evening turned into loud & annoying for those of us not related to the conference, we wanted peace! Again, it was apologized for since there was a big crowd. $119.00 down the drain! Great, big party, but what about us? The conference people aren't coming back anytime soon, but locals do. I will NOT be back!

    I dined with four friends while attending the Stampin'-Up! Convention recently. Personally, I enjoyed my meal, however a few of my friends had some issues with their meals. Our server, Cameron was not as friendly or personal as I would have expected one to be in this type of atmosphere. Management and other staff members were very helpful. I don't know if our server was new but he didn't seem to be knowledgeable of the menu items, beer list. I believe he could be better if he worked on this and his demeanor when interacting with his guests. Other servers seemed to have a good rapport with their guests. He could benefit from watching them. I have worked in the industry for several years and hope this feedback can help him progress.

    Our waiter that night was friendly and helpful in giving info on food content and whether it would be a good choice for my 93 year old Grandmother! The part that left me discouraged was that when he brought the check we were splitting the payment with a card and with cash. instead of waiting for us to fill out the receipt for the card, he automatically charged my card for the full amount and then kept the cash for his tip. This to me is a very dishonest waiter. He needs to wait until the customer fills out the receipt and not charge before verifying what the customer chooses! The lighting in this location was a bit to dark for early evening dining.
