Stellar food!I've visit forage several times a year and the food is always exceptional! The servers are knowledgable and attentive! I haven't found a better restaurant in Salt Lake!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional MealForage is a National stand-out; one of the best dining experiences you will find anywhere in the world. Beats French Laundry.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my third visit. EachThis is my third visit. Each time has been worthwhile -- and both of the subsequent menus were deeper, more focussed than the one before. Saturday's was so thematically strong -- and every bite a delight -- that I will now make an effort to attend at least once every season.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBest dining experience everForage is by far the best restaurant I've ever been to - and as an Account Exec for a Nasdaq listed services company, I have an essentially unlimited expense account and an endless number of customers to wow. Adding to its allure is that it's in Salt Lake and not NY, LA, Las Vegas, etc.
Sadly, I rarely find myself in Salt Lake City - but when I do, Forage is where I take the folks I need to impress.
The creativity and diversity of food and wine is unmatched. The only thing I'd change about Forage is their location as I live in FL and would like to eat there weekly.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was definitely quiteThis was definitely quite the dining 'experience' and we loved every second of it! Incredible food and combinations. We even took advantage of the juice pairings (however, I would not do that again. Although the juice and pairing was wonderful, I felt it was way overpriced for juice). The cost of the meal, however, was more than reasonable for the incredible courses and service we received.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMForage is an eating adventure.Forage was an eating adventure. It is by far the most creative menu my husband and I have experienced. The dishes were thoughtful and elegant. The presentation was artful. I could care less about whether the staff was talkative or friendly (they were), or whether the chef visited our table (he did), we are just about the food. We take our eating seriously and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed the majority of new flavors of the 16 courses, and though there were one or two new tastes I did not prefer, I enjoyed the entire experience. I would like to visit again during a different season to try a new menu.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique dining experienceThis is a unique dining experience not to be had anywhere else in the valley. You will eat something like a 20 course meal over three hours. Generally, each course was excellent. There were a couple of terrible courses but overall the food quality was very high. I didn't leave as full as I thought I would. And the wine and/or juice pairings were small. You will pay $240+ for two if you get the pairings. Will go back once per year.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDining at Forage is an incredibleDining at Forage is an incredible journey... and the food is extraordinary. It was an unforgettable evening.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMJames Beard Award Nominee 2013Really, could it possibly get any better than this? Yes, it could have a spot for coats to be hung besides on the back of chairs. Yes, it could have a better view out the windows (time to move up, Bowman). Yes, the offerings could be less smoke-heavy (or perhaps fewer). In the grand scheme of things, however, this restaurant is for the sophisticated eater who both understands and appreciates the construction of fine food, with complex balance and stunning visual fireworks. Was it better than Jules Verne at the top of the Eiffel Tower, or Le Cinq at the George V? Joel Robuchon? Yes, yes and yes.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMlove this restaurant and trylove this restaurant and try to go once a year when one of my sons are in town. Menu always changes so it is always a suprise3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat an amazing meal! ProbablyWhat an amazing meal! Probably the best we've had in Salt Lake City. The service was impecable. The food was outstanding. The wine pairings were delicious. We partciularly enjoyed the radish with sorrel, the carrots with smoked pistachios, the elk with yellow beets and yellowfoot mushrooms. Although the meal was all small bites, there were enough courses to fill you up by the end. We had read beforehand that the meal could take up to three hours, and it did. But it was well worth it.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant in SLCThis is the best restaurant in SLC. I am a foodie from NYC and I have rarely ate better food, even in NYC. It's a miracle that we have Forage here in SLC because there isn't a market for these types of restaurants. I would probably pay upwards of $500 for the same meal in a big city, so even though it might seem pricy, it's a phenomenal deal for the cuisine.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMYep, it's that good.Forage is worthy of the hype. The price is high but is on par for the experience and food. Each of our nineteen dishes was inventive, unique, beautiful and delicious. The time and creativity put into each course is obvious. My husband was impressed with the wine pairings and I (pregnant) was delighted with the juice pairings: everything from rhubarb to Douglas fir juice to housemade almond milk- amazing! The service is attentive and knowledgable while being friendly and unpretentious. They even sent us home with housemade granola for breakfast in the morning. Perfect for a special celebration.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMexciting food, wonderful staff,exciting food, wonderful staff, a unique dining experience3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeThis was a wonderful experience, I would dine there again.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of a KindThese people are amazing. Each of our 16 dishes was a work of culinary art. The juice pairings we got were fun and thoughtful. The staff was knowledgable and accommodating. Without a doubt this was the most memorable dining experience my wife & I have had in our entire lives.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my third time atThis was my third time at Forage, and it didn't disappoint! The understated decor and quiet music make for a relaxing ambience, and the waitstaff are organized to a high level of service and attention. In fact, my mother, whom I was treating to a dinner there, was convinced that there were far more people covering the tables than there actually were, because of of the level and timeliness of their attention! The level of creativity in the use and presentation of local ingredients in each dish is an unmatched delight, and one of the main reasons that dining at Forage engages and indulges all of your senses. Yes, a night out here is a bit of a splurge, but it's well worth it for a special occasion!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMForage is positively memorableMy husband and I have been to Forage twice now; once just the two of us and the second time with another couple. Great setting and menu for both occasions. I recommend Forage to those who I know will appreciate not just a fabulous meal but a food experience.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHeaven in ZionForage has a reputation that precedes itself. The food is excellent, the ambiance is very nice, the service is impeccable, and it feels intimate enough for most excursions. I only rated a 4/5 ambiance because the evening I attended, another patron was boisterous and obnoxious with another group of 4 to my side who also disregarded classical etiquette. The staff was prompt, polite, and knowledgeable. The kitchen staff and process looked like an art exhibit. The serving plates were unique and beautiful, helping to aid the experience and lend suggestive tones to the influence of the chef's pursuits. Absolutely incredible overall. Would suggest to 10/10 friends. Pricey, but something I can easily excuse for each season's experience.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent, with greatFood was excellent, with great and unusual variety. However, portions were minuscule. I have eaten at numerous restaurants with high-end multi-course tasting menus, and the portions are typically small. However, Forage had the smallest portion by far, across all courses. Wine pairings were also very skimpy. If not for basket of bread served early (I suggest eating it all) and granola provided as the diners leave the restaurant, we might have stopped at Epic Brewery on the way home from the restaurant for a sandwich. Its hard to believe the value of the ingredients is large enough to justify such tiny portions - perhaps for a few courses, but not every one.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
