    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.

    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.

    We went for my son's birthday, the waitress Cindy was great, the steaks were undercooked and had to be sent back, the asparagus was overdone, the steak fries were greasy and no seasoning, the mashed potatoes were good along with the brussell sprouts! The amount of money we paid for the low quality of food was a joke! We have always gone to Ruth's Chris steak house and that's where we will be going next time!!

    Went to Christophers to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Food was very good. I had the filet and my wife had the angry shrimp. We had the stuffed mushrooms and salads to start. Service was great. 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!

    Excuses
    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.

    We came to Christopher's for our anniversary. The staff did an excellent job making our dining experience memorable. Kate was our server. We ordered the lobster corn dogs as an appetizer on her recommendation. My wife and I agree this was the highlight of the meal. Sooooo wonderful!! The steaks we ordered were cooked perfectly and were delicious. They gave us a free dessert for our anniversary. After debating over the ice cream and fresh berries and the creme brûlée, we decided on the former. When it was brought out, we were surprised with both desserts. Overall our experience was very positive. A little out of our budget for casual dining, Christopher's is at the top of the list for a special occasion dining experience. Kudos and thanks!!

    From the service to the food, everything about our experience at Christopher's was perfect. The bread was the perfect crispy outside and chewy inside. Both steaks were high quality cuts and incredibly well prepared. The calamari was the best we had ever had and the scampi and lobster were untouchable as well. The desserts made for a solid exclamation point to the meal. The waiter was personable and attentive and met all of our needs as they arose. And, the reisling we chose was delicious. Finally, the restaurant itself is gorgeous with soaring ceilings and fine woodwork. It was an amazing evening. We will definitely return!

    We ordered the special, tenderloin with lobster eat on top. The tomato bisque was good. The tenderloin for my wife and me both did not seem to have the tenderloin structure and certainly was not tender. My wife ordered medium rare. Mine was medium. The meat was also very salty. I prefer to salt it my liking myself. The lobster pieces were hard to detect in the heavy sauce that tasted like a left over and also was very salty. The waitress was friendly. I did not bring it to her attention, since it was not her fault and I knew I could report it here.

    We've been going to Christopher's ever since they were a small hole in the wall in Bountiful. As they've "grown-up" we've loved enjoying the benefits of their learning and growing. They have treated us very well all along the way. The staff has always ensured our Birthdays, Anniversaries, Engagements, family occasions have been celebrated appropriately. This last time, was a little different however the music was almost to the level of blaring and we were seated among many other boisterous people instead of in a quieter place to celebrate a romantic dinner for two. However, if this is the only complaint we could come up with - score. We will most definitely continue to come back. The birthday card to my Prince Charming was a plus!
