Had a reservation but still had to wait a solid 40 minutes
Sat at the table a good 30 minutes before I flagged someone down for water
Looked at my watch and it was another hour from the time we sat before they took our food order
Food took awhile. Horrible front of house. There were people waiting at the front while we ate for long periods of
Time. They all kept peeping their head in looking for
Someone that should be up front. The food was ok, it definitely wasn’t worth the wait. I’m sure you can find something else on the area to eat. I dine out for the service and this definitely was not meeting expectations. I definitely could have made better food at home.

We have not been out much lately and realized what we have been missing! Escargot and accompanying bread slices were delicious. My husband adored his onion soup. Table bread was devoured. Chicken Royale special was interesting stuffed with Brie and Apple. My husband’s filet caused him to wonder why we would ever try to grill a steak at home again. Desert was a fab lemon cream cake. New restaurant surroundings are nicely appointed and spacious compared with old location.

This was our first trip to Aragosta's new location. The European, traditional ambience is a perfect match to Chef Imi's quiet elegance. It is nice to see Chef have the space to serve those many of us that welcome our trips to his dining room. As hoped, the food preparation and presentation is still the same fabulous quality. We thoroughly enjoyed the steamed mussels appetizer, Caesar Salad and King Salmon entree. Chef's Sticky Toffee Cake was a decadent way to close out our meal. Kaylee provided attentive service without being overbearing. Having Chef Imi out to greet us personally is always a treat! We wish him many happy years in this new location.

Probably the best fine dining restaurant in St. George. The chef came to greet us when we sat down and sent special amouche bouche to our table. The waitress was so friendly and knowledgeable about the food and pronounced all the Hungarian dishes and drinks correctly. Wonderful atmosphere. Every dish was excellent. We were able to get a special dish (duck liver) prepared for us and it was marvelous. Highly recommend.

Insider secret - Lunch is available by reservation!! Chef Imi has a super lunch menu that includes many of his dinner favorites and a few extra pastas and salads. He rotates the menu so it's not published on line. Lunch at Aragosta created such a highlight in our week. We enjoyed the food and the ambiance. Chef Imi treated us like royalty.

We were so taken care of!! Especially during this pandemic time.
The food is dramatically better than anything else in St George. The service our server, Katelyn, offered made the evening more special.
We can recommend Aragosta as Southern Utah’s finest dining experience.

Chef Imi is a treasure not to be missed when in Southern Utah. His cuisine and dining experience tops anything else between Las Vegas and Salt Lake City. Now that Aragosta is located at the Bell Tower, the decor matches the rest of the dining experience Imi provides. Always our first choice for celebrating special occasions! You will not be disappointed.

The best restaurant in St George! Chef Imi greats you, is personable and aims to please! Perfection every time. Aragosta is beautiful and my favorite place to celebrate special occasions! The service can be a little slow but with the virus and a limited number of servers it gives time to sit back and enjoy one of the great wines they serve.

I really like the new location. It was formerly a banquet area. However they have done a great job with their decorating to make it feel intimate. I love the tablecloths. The food is always good. Just be prepared to spend at least an hour and a half enjoying your dinner or lunch. Chef Imi likes to make sure everything leaves the kitchen to his perfection. Can't wait for our next visit!

This was a truly pleasant dining experience. The food was delicious and the presentation was magnificent. The service was excellent and Chef Imi was a true professional, not only in the preparation and presentation of the food, but also as host. Overall, our experience more than justified our two-hour plus drive for lunch.

The food was good. Maybe even very good. The service was also good. But nothing spectacular. For that much dough, I kind of hope for spectacular.As far as a ambiance goes, I’m sure that somebody’s grandma loves that look and feel, so if you’re someone’s grandma, take grandpa on a date. If you’re not, hey, it isn’t horrible, take your grandma!

The only note of spectacular failure was the espresso I order after eating. It was among the worst that I’ve ever had, and may in fact have been instant. Whatever you do, don’t order that.

???? What is all that grandma thinks? The elegance is maybe new for you, but just a reminder, you are here because you had Grandma and Grandpa!!!!!!! - Sorry for the espresso, it is automatic, just checked now and the espresso is just fine. Wish you will stay young and never be aged like grandma.

Great quiet upscale spot! Food was cooked perfectly. The linen napkins is an upgrade for St george. It was a great evening! They even made accommodations for being Gluten Free and brought out gluten free bread for the oil and vinegar dip as well as for our French onion soup!

Incredibly long wait for service and food. One dish came out cold, one was not cooked to the correct level. We were brought a salad that we didn’t order and were told that we could keep it for free - and then it showed up on the bill. At that point we had been there 2.5hrs and I frankly didn’t want to wait another 15 minutes to have it taken off the bill. At no point was there any acknowledgement or apology for the horribly wrong wait. The restaurant wasn’t full and every table we observed had the same long wait. Absolutely unacceptable.
