    Breakfast sandwich was a bit greasy and the onions were too powerful. Eggs Benedict were delicious and well done. Coffee from the coffee bar was great! Service was perfect.

    The Tuna Steak Sandwich is divine. It's a great lunch spot to just sit down and relax with friends. They have a coffee bar and their desserts are very tasty as well.

    This was our first time, husband and wife, dining at the Oasis Café. We went on a Saturday morning about 9:45a, but by the time we left there and the accompanying book shop after 11:00a the place was jammed. The German pancake is like eating a piece of moist cake. Very good, our first visit but certainly not our last!

    This restaurant has been giving fine food, sometimes local and usually seasonal, in a nicely relaxed atmosphere for many years now. My last experience involved taking a friend out for a birthday dinner: as a vegetarian, she can have difficulties with chain eateries and comfort food situations. Oasis offers a variety of options and our choices were delicious: a moist fresh fish with coordinated mashed root veggies and spinach, and a delightful wild chantarelle mushroom dish on fresh pasta with shredded brussel sprouts. The outdoor patio was quiet but the location is near downtown and we did have a burst of firetruck sirens at one point. Service has much improved over the years and was nicely attentive.

    This is one of my favorite restaurants in SLC. I've been here mostly for breakfast and lunch, which has always been spectacular and healthy, and the dishes are creative. I recently had dinner there, and the food was good, but not as good as the breakfast menu in my opinion. I appreciate being able to go somewhere where you can find responsibly sourced food that is delicious and reasonably priced.

    Oasis Cafe has been a favorite restaurant of mine for years. There are so many awesome options on their menu that my biggest challenge is deciding which item to choose. The food is outstanding, the wait staff are very friendly, and the ambience is classy without being uncomfortable or pretentious. During lunch rush the restaurant can get rather busy and, of course the noise level goes up accordingly (but it's never all that loud). During dinner time it's much more quiet and relaxing. I can't think of any other restaurant that has food this good where I can be equally comfortable wearing hiking shorts and a tee shirt, or a suit and tie. One of the best restaurants Salt Lake City has to offer.

    The Oasis Cafe is excellent all-around. Experienced a dinner there on a Sunday evening. Originally had planned a lunch, but after seeing their menu fare online, changed minds to experience their dinner. First time there. Sat on their patio which felt like outdoor eating, but under the cover of canvas tenting felt protected from the sun or weather, had it been inclement. Very pleasant. If you dined inside, the atmosphere is equally pleasant, appointed with a fine sense of interior design. Service was perfect. Ambiance was perfect. Food was perfect. Both myself and my friend were undecided about which entree to order, and asked the waiter's recommendation. Both proved winning selections. Without hesitation, I would return.

    What a wonderful dinner. They've recently made some changes to the dinner menu and it is excellent. Our group had the Paprika Crusted Chicken, Pork Chile Verde, Seafood Coconut Curry, and Penne Pasta. Everything was delicious, expertly cooked and perfectly portioned. Our server Lindsay was fantastic. Oasis has become one of our "go to" spots for dinner.

    My first time time there. My reservation was recognized and we were seated promptly. The food looks to have moderen sustainable agriculture in mind. I had a risotto that despite it greenish appearance was absolutely divine. The appetizers were great and abundant. There is an energy about the place but it is not so loud you can't talk in a normal voice. it is a modern style. The creme brule was also very good. The prices were surprisingly low. Yes, I'll be back.

    We made a 2:15 reservation for Mother's Day brunch, as that is the earliest afternoon reservation we could get. We were so hungry, and the mall was closed, so we went to Oasis an hour early. They were so busy, but they seated us within 10 minutes!!! The food was divine! Lots of variety! My favorite was the maple mustard glazed salmon! Our waitress was crazy funny! We really had a great time!

    We were seated quickly with our reservation. We had never been to Oasis before and enjoyed the food. The cheeze blintzes were excellent, the baked french toast & buttermilk syrup was very good as was the potato hash. The variety was very good. The herb omlette only had a very herbs sprinkled on top that really didn't make it taste like anything other than eggs and a little cheese. Overall, the food was very good.

    I've been to this place a million times for lunch and loved it. Brought my kids for a bday dinner bcuz my 15-yr old is a vegan and this is one of the restaurants that has vegan options in SLC...service was horrendous. Place was more than half empty yet it took 20 mins for our waitress to come take our order and only bcuz we finally got up and asked if someone was going to take our order. From that point on she acted completely rude and wouldn't surprise me if she spit in our food which came 40 mins after the 20 mins we waited to order it. The ambience was really dead too, just not a lively place to go for dinner, huge contrast to the lunch hour. Bottom line, the food was decent but the service was so bad I will never go back again.

    We have frequented Oasis for brunch numerous time and we love that we can sit in the patio and bring our dog. But this last time I feel like the food was not the best that we are used to getting there. Also there were many items that we wanted and were on the menu but they had ran out of. We were a little disappointed one of out items came out a little bit before we had to leave and took it to go . We were not charged for it which was really nice of our waitress ..she was great as well.

    I really like the whole feel of this restaurant, but the food is just not that good. I have eaten there twice and both times I was not thrilled with my food. My fish was over cooked, and a stir fry had way to much of a peanut flavor that overpowered the dish. The grilled shrimp appetizer was good, however, I wish that for two people they would give you 4 shrimp not just 3.

    We dine out a LOT and as a result have a broad range of places to compare. We're also extremely health concience and like our dishes prepared a specific way which usually results in the kitchen needing to tweak them just a little. Oasis is as good as they get. There menu is broad. Food is quality and fantastic. Portions and prices are extremely fair. Different decor mind you but a fabulous place to dine. Specials are to die for and a real bargain too.

    I love going to the Oasis, especially for brunch! I don't eat eggs and many brunch places don't realize that if you don't eat egg dishes you need granola, pancakes and other dishes. Also, I really appreciate the wait staff. Even when the place is really busy, they are great. They have back up in place so that as soon as your food is ready, it is delivered to you. The popularity of the place has grown over the years so, especially for brunch, it is good to make a reservation.
