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
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Wonderful evening with great food. First though we thought it was a little noisy. Otherwise, highly recommended."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The service is excellent, the seafood chopped salad was disappointing and it had leftover pasta in it. Other entrees were okay."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "My husband and I decided to go to the New Yorker as we hadn't been there in nearly 10 years. We walked in and were literally the youngest people there...by thirty years. Though the food was good and our server was impeccable it wasn't a crowd we fit in with."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "The New Yorker has always been a favorite of ours and we still had a great time this visit. Our salads and entrees were delicious. However, the typical attention to quality seemed to have been quite off. The wine, appetizer, and dessert weren't at all what we've come to expect from the New Yorker. We brought in a bottle of wine, but after we'd finished that off we ordered another glass of the same (the restaurant carries the exact same wine), but it was old & bad - vinegary and completely undrinkable. As for the appetizer, we shared the Ahi Tuna Carpaccio and it was very bland, badly in need of seasoning and lemon. For dessert, we shared a creme brulee, but it was eggy and not very good. Hopefully these issues were a just an anomaly."

  • "Oveall we enjoyed our dinner and service. It appreared my guests enjoyed their meals. I personally did not enjoy the crusted Alaska Salmon, as I thought it had an unusual taste, and I didn't feel the crusted coating was appropriate for the fish. I did not finish this meal, which was unusual. (I normally always finish a fish entree.)"

  • "The New Yorker Restaurant created a fantastic environment for easy communication, acceptable privacy, comfort and terrific pace for the entire evening. Our waitress actually made it fun, despite the fact that it appeared it had almost reached it's maximum capacity. A true test of a restaurant's greatness is when the free stuff (bread and water) are constantly being offered and all 5 guests had different main courses that all exceeded expectations. Lots of happy faces"

  • "We had the opportunity to dine at New Yorker thanks to a Christmas gift card. Having never been before we were impressed by the warm greeting and service we received immediately. The food was above expectations and quite delightful. Have already recommended it to friends!"
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "While we understand the quality of the food and wine, the absence of a "house wine" and the pricing and lack of a moderate proce vintage was very troubling. ..$16 per glass at lunch is a turn off. .. so recommendation to "friend (above)" would point this out."

  • "There was nothing wrong with the New Yorker but there wasn't much right with it either. The food was good, but it wasn't great. That goes with everything else, the service, ambience and noise level, it was all good but not great. The tables were so close to eachother that you were practically sharing a meal with the tables around you. The New Yorker was good but not great. I would recommend someone trying another restaurant before coming here."

  • "The perfect place for a splurge holiday dinner. The decorations are superb, poinsettias and wreaths everywhere. We had the prix fixe dinner, which included a salad, entree and dessert for $45. One of the few restaurants in SLC which don't charge a corkage fee. Everything was delicious!"

  • "The New Yorker has always been and will continue to be my favorite restaurant. The staff is exceptional as well as the menus and the ambience. No matter what time of year, dining at The New Yorker is superior and second to none. The New Yorker is my number one choice for every occaision."
