Fun restaurant to celebrate inEnjoyed to food and the atmosphere was great. We had a very enjoyable time.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBest buffet everThe food was amazing and the dessert bar was even better. I sampled everything they had and liked everything.
The view of the temple was awesome. Took my wife there for our anniversary and she lived it too.
I would also recommend doing a carriage ride after. Great night.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWOW!This place was perfect for our special night out. A window table over-looking Temple Square in Salt Lake City, live pianist and well prepared foods and desserts. I usually do not prefer buffets but I will make an exception for this one - not the typical. Not a large space so I would make a reservation (they require a credit card to do that).6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable night on Temple SquareOur party of eight decided to go to the Roof to celebrate my daughter's 16th birthday. It was my first time there. I was very pleased with the whole experience. The food is varied, fresh and of high quality. The service is outstanding. No wait, very responsive yet discreet. The view is fantastic.
I was worried that the 1 hour 30 minute limit would be a problem, but since there was no wait at all, we were well fed, entertained and ready to go in less than that time. I cannot think of anything wrong with this place.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNot all food perfectTwo soups were offered. Neither were hot, just barely warm.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMJust what I was looking forI was impressed with everything, the food was great the view perfect. This was my first time there and I was treated like family. Thank you for the experience.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat experience, great serviceWe made our reservations for later in the evening, and then my mother was rushed to the hospital. We called, and they were able to move up our reservation with no hassle. The service was great, the staff was super friendly. The pianist was very talented. The food was a buffet, but it was very classy, and the food was very tasty. They also had unlimited dessert, and the fountain drinks were included in the price. The view of the temple was incredible also, very very pretty. My wife cried because of her favorite Disney music played by the pianist. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet romantic evening away from the kids. Prices online are correct.Make a reservation, and reserve a window seat5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMbetter than everWe have eaten many times at The Roof, but the most recent occasion was the best. The food keeps improving--it is excellent.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved itWe went for our 5 year anniversary and were very pleased. The selection of food was great and we loved our server, she was very helpful. The piano player was excellent and of coarse the view...beautiful! We won't be making it a frequent place to visit because of the price, but it was well worth our money and for our next special occasion we will be back!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experienceWe had such a good experience here. The service was the best I've ever experienced and the food was fantastic, especially the white chocolate mousse cake. Yum!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBest place in townWe celebrated our (combined) birthdays at the Roof Restaurant this year. Had never been there before, but can't wait to go again! Everything was fabulous--from the gourmet food buffet, to the environment, to the excellent service, to the incredible view of Temple Square! We were treated wonderfully and everything about the experience made for an ideal birthday celebration!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMCharmingthe roof was a very good restaurant with great service and we love with you the temple next door and the buffet was just absolutely delicious and there's so many desserts that we had trouble with what we wanted.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to relax and enjoyGreat place to relax and enjoy the endless choices of wonderful food5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Special Occasions!This restraunt is wonderful! Every table has a fantastic view of the LDS Salt Lake temple. Fabulouse staff, fantastic food, wonderful environment! The buffet offers something for everyone, and the variety of desserts is fantastic. At $40.00 a person, it is perfect for a special occasion but not for casual dinning.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is top choice at the Roof.Always a fantastic buffet worth the higher price. Unique dishes of huge variety so artistically displayed. Food to please every palate. The piano player adds the ambience without drowning out you conversations. We have been there to see the sunset over the city and a million lights turn on to a snow storm and now a rain and dust storm. All have provided great views and entertainment out the 10th floor picturesque windows. Perfect place for that special occasion.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!The food was great, the view was great, the service was great. And I loved the piano music.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Atmosphere and DessertsThe salads and food are wonderful, but the desserts are the reason to be there.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server Teri, was outstanding
ThOur server Teri, was outstanding
The buffet selection was great5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayBe aware that the Roof has changed their deserts. The old desert tables with pies, cakes, cheesecakes, chocolate covered strawberries, cobbler etc is all gone. They have moved to individual portions. (quarter size). It looks like they don't want you to take too much. Desert tables are equal to or lower than Chuck A Rama. Prime rib is excellent along with the pork dish but the beef medalions were too tough. Great atsmophere but the qualityof food has gone downhill5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for special occasionsFor that special occasion, an anniversary, birthday, or similar this is the place for that quite get a way!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentGood service, and excellent live piano music. The view is the best part, after all, it is the roof!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, seems expensive,Great food, seems expensive, but when your getting all you can eat gourmet meals and desert it is understandable.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner with a viewMy wife and I attended the restaurant for our 4th anniversary. We enjoyed the food as all of it appeared freshly prepared. The view was the best in the valley from inside a building. Though there were several couples there, we still felt as if we had our own private spot. We will definitely return again for a future anniversary celebration.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe RoofExcellent service and waitress. Girl playing the piano was great.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experienceThis was our first time eating there (in cebration of our anniversary). We loved it. The staff was so friendly and helpful. We commented that we've never had a better waitress then we did at the roof. The food was delicious and the overall experience was just perfect. Definitely coming back sometime!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMjust a reviewThe pasta dish was dull in flavor, not very warm. The flank steak did not have much flavor as well. And the chicken was dry which surprised me. Your biggetst compliment that I hear from friends is to save room for the desserts. Which is true they were all very good. Especially the bread pudding!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was top-notch andThe food was top-notch and we had a wonderful view to the north.

Atmosphere is elegant.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Special AnniversaryWe have never been to such a wonderful buffet style dinner. My wife has allergies to certain spices and peppers. The chef, actually made certain dishes special for her so shecould taste these foods for the first time. It was a beautiful scenic view high above thecity, seeing a birds-eye of Temple Square on one side and the Capital building and the Avenues homes. The service was extraordinary. The pianist was very talented and the ambiance was nothing we have ever experienced. We are in power chairs and she is on oxygen, and they gave us a table that was in the perfect location. We were out of the way of other diners but in a area making it easy for us to go get our foods.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSeems odd to me to have aSeems odd to me to have a buffet in a highly rated/recommended restuarant. The food was good, but not great. And we weren't given a wine list, that too is very odd for a place considered to be a fine dining establishment.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Roof is a must go-to restaurantThe Roof is a must go-to restaurant for anyone visiting Salt Lake and for anyone wanting a romantic experience. The views are amazing, and the ambience of the restaurant was excellent. The service was outstanding. Although the buffet display was impressive to look at, the taste of the food was not this restaurant's strongest suit. The food was good, but not great. Still, the overall experience of the The Roof definitely makes going there for dinner a worthwhile experience that I plan to repeat.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server, Jan, was outstanding.Our server, Jan, was outstanding.
