A word from New Yorker Restaurant
New Yorker, a public dining establishment, is “the place to dine” in Salt Lake City. Located in the 1906 New York Hotel (listed on the National Register of Historic Places), New Yorker has consistently been rated as Utah’s dining establishment of choice. The delectable menus that change with the seasons and the exceptionally gracious service contribute to their many awards: top American Cuisine, business dining, superb downtown location, exceptional décor, best classic cocktails, and ambiance… just to name a few. In keeping with its name, the restaurant reflects a classic 1940s New York elegance with a unique stained glass ceiling and luxurious banquettes, both elements originating from the now renovated historic 1911 Hotel Utah.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Although reservation was put in on the final day of the travel and being visited for supper, it was a wonderful dish suitable for the last day. Although the sauce of the steak was a somewhat salty impression for the Japanese, but the taste of meat itself was good."

  • "our waitress way the best ever so nice and made the night even better"

  • "The service was excellent. My lobster tail appeared to have been frozen and left under the heat lamp too long. However, the service at the New Yorker continues to "knock my socks off.""

  • "My wife and I decided to try The New Yorker this past week, and our meal was absolutely fantastic. We started with the coconut-panko encrusted crab cake, followed with a couple of salads, then the filet mignon medallions and the lobster tail, finishing with a creme brulee and New York style cheesecake. The filet mignon was prepared perfectly and was melt-in-your mouth. Our server, while very attentive, didn't make us feel very welcome. She became visibly annoyed when my wife told her she didn't want to order a beverage besides water. The server at the table next to us was the exact opposite. She obviously likes her job and went out of her way to make her guests feel at home. The manager stopped by several times to check on us."

  • "We celebrated our anniversary. My wife has celiac and requires gluten free dining options. We are always nervous to try a new restaurant. We asked our server for a gluten free menu and she immediately put us at ease saying that the kitchen would gladly modify anything they could to make it gluten free. They even had gluten free bread. The service was excellent. The booths are romantic and provide a sense of privacy. The food was delicious, refined, and interesting. It is a little pricey even for a pricey restaurant. But for a special occasion and for the gluten free experience we didn't feel we had to overpay."

  • "I have not been to The New Yorker in at least half a decade. What I remember from the ambiance has remained as timeless and classy as it always has been. The service was mostly quick and on par with what you would expect from a fine dinning establishment. Its the food and presentation that seem a bit dated. I had the lamb, and while cooked to perfection was not the award winning meal they claimed it to be. The chicken liver pate was good, but I was half tempted to skip the liver and only use the delicious huckleberry sauce it was served with. My date had the steak, which was expertly cooked to the right temperature, but lacking synergy with the sides. Like I said before the plates presentation is now dated, and not particularly impressive."

  • "Great place for a business dinner where you need great food, nice atmosphere, and not a heart stopping expense report. Love this place, best ribeye I've had in a while"

  • "My group felt like we were transported to another place and time. Walking downstairs to the entrance of the restaurant felt like we were out of town. The service was exceptional! Everyone from the Valet Attendant to our waitress were very friendly and professional. The decor and ambiance were comfortable and beautiful! The foodie in the group was very impressed with the food. Delicious! Thank you!"

  • "And that's too bad. The New Yorker is no longer the fine dining experience that it once was. Food is okay, but no great shakes. Menu is a laminated card with so so selections. Wine list is also so so. Food and wine prices are all a bit too high... A Manhattan that costs in excess of $11.00 in a state where the drink doesn't even come up half way in the martini glass, is a bit excessive. Noise has always been a bit problematic, and the lower level cafe area has never helped with that problem. Wait staff who leave dirty plates and half eaten dishes along side tables really detract from the dining atmosphere. Not really a place I plan on going back to. It is no longer a classy place with unique dishes and notable wine list. Too bad."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at the New Yorker. We go every year to celebrate, and the wine, food and ambiance are always special. The New Yorker is our preferred restaurant downtown, and it's always the place we start our evening out. "
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "We eat here for special occasions and the free shuttle to the theatre. Food is good and service is awesome. The negative is that there are only stairs and it is difficult to walk down them. It was very noisy due to a big party going so it cut into the romance a bit."

  • "Consistently good. Complementary wine service is a plus. Knowledgeable waiters."

  • "Everyone was great and I have always enjoy the fine food and wines available!"
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Overall the food was good and service was good, but for the price and reputation of the restaurant there really wasn't anything special about it. The steak and appetizers were pretty good, but the chicken and lobster were way over cooked and for the price of these meals it should be expected that all the food be cooked completely perfect. The service was very friendly and helpful, but getting the food took much too long; 30 minutes after the appetizers."

  • "I have lost track how many times I've dined at the New Yorker and it is still a fine place. Despite the decades of prominence you can always count on some clever new offerings and the staff is always the epitome of class and grace and helpful as well. If you are going for the first time try the French Onion soup to start and the creme brulé to end and something wonderful in between. I had the Rigatoni with Wild Boar (how's that for creative). They do have a private room for top level meetings. If you are a serious foodie and live in SLC or near, the New Yorker is an absolute must."

  • "Excellence from the moment we walked in. The signed birthday card on the table was such a surprise. Our server and the other members of the wait staff were friendly and professional, and fully anticipated our needs. The food was perfect. Thanks for a wonderful birthday evening!"

  • "Outdated decor. Looked like it was from the 80s. Food was fantastic!"
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Love the atmosphere and waitstaff. We celebrated our anniversary we felt special we got the table we requested and our waitress was wonderful and paced bringing the food out perfect. The food was good except my rib-eye steak was really tough and not editable. Everything else we had was incredible. I have been before and always enjoyed the food."

  • "The ingredients were good, but the prep/sauce was fair."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "This was definitely a sub par experience. Very expensive for poor flavor. Seafood pasta was bland and over cooked. Lobster over cooked. My wife's salmon was poorly seasoned and over cooked (I'm sensing a theme). Service was terrible. No attention from server after taking order. Evidently he paid more attention to a larger party that came in after us. An apology from the manager for this came too late as we needed to get off to our concert. Would not come here again."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The waiter seemed too busy and it was hard to get her attention. The food was mediocre so combined with the poor service we were not pleased. Have had good food here before so very disappointed!"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "My wife and I have been to the New Yorker many times and we are always pleased with the dining experience. We most enjoy being able to dine without hearing kids. We had a 5:30 reservation and by 6:00, the place was packed, so the quality of the New Yorker is no secret. The food is fabulous; the bar is expertly tended; the service excellent; truly an enjoyable adult evening."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "After not visiting the New Yorker for several years we decided to give it a try again. We were astonished that we had waited so long to try out this local Treasure. In my opinion it is the best of the Gastronomy Restaurants, and is a place not to be overlooked. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was robust and active but still felt private. We will definitely by returnigron"

  • "We happened to have gotten married on Valentine's Day so we were celebrating our Anniversary on the Saturday after Valentine's Day. The restaurant was extremely busy, but had a nice, romantic atmosphere. I had looked online at their menu to decide what I wanted to have before getting to the restaurant and was surprised when I was handed a menu that looked nothing like what I had seen online. The menu had been simplified for the Valentine rush, and what I wanted had been taken off the menu. The server was nice enough to offer to have the chef put together something similar, but when I got the entree it seemed rushed and not at all what I expected. We had an overall nice time. Would go again, but not for Valentine's Day or any other busy day."

  • "Dined early prior to going to symphony which the restaurant was prepared for and actually provides transportation to Abravanel Hall. Had a 6 PM reservation and the symphony was at 8. They were ready and was able to have a lovely dinner without being rushed and arrived in plenty of time for the concert. Started with the wild mushrooms and brie appetizer which was very flavorful. The Chilean sea bass was light and delicate and really delicious. Lamb shank was also very tasty. A most enjoyable evening!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My wife and I both chose the filet mignon. Both were over cooked and not worth the hefty price tag. Texas Road House makes a better steak. On a good day Sizzler might have even been better. The highlight was dessert. We had both the creme brûlée and raspberry tart. But for a $200 price tag, next time I'll dine elsewhere."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The restaurant was busy granted it was the day after Valentines. I arrived for my 7:45 reservation a little bit early and checked in, then stood to the side to wait for them to seat my girlfriend and I. We arrived at about 7:40 and didn't get seated until 8:05. I assumed it was just because it was busy, but when we were taken to our table I was disappointed that it was a table that had been sitting empty when we walked in 25 minutes earlier. Also, the menu that is on their website is way different than what they handed to us. It was very cramped and everyone was really close together. The food was okay but more expensive that I expected for such limited options. Definitely do not go if you are not into alcohol, it filled the whole back page"

  • "We have enjoyed the New Yorker for years; but our experience Feb.15th may be our last. They overbooked their tables. The waiter was very rushed and even rude. The menu was very restrictive. The salad was mediocre and the entree tasteless and consisted primarily of a clump of steamed spinach. The highlight of our meal was the drinks. Simply not the type of meal you pay for in a restaurant or club with their reputation."

  • "Seated 30 minutes after our arrival/reservation time. Others who checked in after us were seated first. Had to send back my first steak because I couldn't cut it. Not the level of service or food quality I'm used to here."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We always enjoy New Yorker, but were disappointed that they were still running a limited menu the day after Valentine's Day. We looked online and it showed the regular full menu and didn't indicate that there would be a limited menu. We were disappointed."

  • "We had a great dinner at the New Yorker as always. It has become one of our favorite downtown restaurants over the past couple years. We decided to make Valentines weekend reservations and although the food was stellar (as usual) it was overcrowded and quite noisy, I suppose it comes with the holiday territory. I was also surprised to see a person dining in sweat pants and slippers at a restaurant of this caliber."

  • "My wife and I chose the New Yorker for our Valentine's day dinner. The place was fairly crowded, we were seated at a tiny table flanked by two other couples who were close enough to make it awkward. The waitress forgot our waters for some time and when our food arrived both dishes were barely luke warm. It was bad enough to send mine back, it came back with all the garnishments shrivelled..so my ~$40 dinner had been microwaved..not what I would call a pleasant experience."

  • "My wife and I have always commented that dinner at the New Yorker feels like a quick trip out of town. It has a great feel unlike any other restaurant in SLC."
