Aragosta was highly recommended by locals. We went for an Anniversary, food was good. I realize things still aren’t up to par, will have to try again.

Almost 3 hrs from seat time to receipt of dinner. Watched others get served that came in 1.5 hrs after our seating. Very poor service as waitress never checked on us for the 3 hrs and apologized like no other once I addressed the issue. Amazing how our dinner magically showed up immediately after everything came to a head. New Years dinner pricing was not on menu and grossly overpriced. I can now say, been there, done that, won’t go back.

We were a party of 6. As always, the food and service were excellent. Aragosta is far and away the best upscale restaurant in St.George. Their prices remain fair for the quality of food and the service impeccable.

We have been eating at Chef Imi's restaurants for 15 years, and never been disappointed.

The negatives: salad was not tossed, leaving some parts dry and other parts soaked in dressing; poor wine paring, recommending a dry wine with a dish having a sweet sauce; scrimp not cooked enough; empty plates left on table long after finished and creame brulee sugar toping scorched not just melted. Overall a disappointment for a restaurant advertised as high quality.

We loved our dinner at Aragosta. Delicious food. We sat debating if it would overtake our previous favorite fancy meal spot in town, and ultimately decided that the ambiance and setting of Aragosta gave it the upper hand.

A good evening out. Small wine list, but there are some quality options to be found, especially on the captains list. The menu is good, however you will find that the sides and accompaniments for many entrees are the same, which can be disappointing. Had the venison special and was pleased, but the mixed vegetables that came with it did nothing to compliment the dish. Lobster bisque was excellent, and the calamari appetizer was very good. Good crisp breading on the calamari, not heavy or greasy. Will return again for certain, although the menu could benefit from more seasonality in the featured ingredients.

The food was fantastic. I don't even like gorgonzola cheese but the filet mignon with gorgonzola was amazing. The atmosphere was chill and the waitress we had, Ari, was amicable and attentive. The chef even came by to see how we liked the food. We are definitely recommending the place to our other climbing friends that visit St George.

The food was beautifully prepared. My wife’s filet mignon was delicious. I ordered a menu corkscrew Alfredo. But received a penne Alfredo. I mention it because the menu described it as a unique corkscrew yet it wasn’t. Still it tasted fine. The ambiance was not an intimate dining experience as the room is quite large with high ceilings. Piped in piano background music was to loud. Service was professional yet not engaging. Finally my expectations for a restaurant charging fine dining prices unfortunately were not met.

Since this restaurant is listed as fine dining, you would expect a dress code. There is also the matter of training the wait staff about the timing of bringing plates and removing them. you also do not put the (doggy bags) on the table before desert is even brought out or the check. There are a few places staff could go to see how fine dining is done.

Wanted to treat my friend to the best dining experience. I knew Aragosta would be stellar. It always is. I loved our server, my rack of lamb, which I'd never had before. The mint sauce was divine. The vegetables freshness and quality of preparation was perfect and the plating was lovely. My friend said her escargot was the best she's ever had. I love eating with her because she has a well developed palate, can tell how food was prepared and her sense of quality is an art. She was very pleased. And I am no wine expert by any means but I truly enjoyed my glass of Cabernet Sauvignon. The whole evening was sensual pleasure and when the chef came to our table I did not have sufficient words to thank him. But I wish I had.

Food is always good. Love the Chilean Sea Bass I had last visit. The appetizer salmon platters was fresh and a large portion. Nice wine list. Another reason to eat at Aragosta is the ambience; classy old world, piano, outdoor seating; I love it. The service is perfect; attention is paid but not annoyingly hovering.

This was the first time we visited Aragosta. For a fine dining restaurant, the ambiance was all wrong. The owners need to hire an interior designer to help make the restaurant more cozy and inviting. There’s so much wrong that I don’t have the space to list everything. The food is good, so if they moved or changed the atmosphere dramatically, they would have a winner!

Wonderful restaurant. Excellent food. The chef came out and talked to our group and talked through some items on the menu. The servers brought out sorbet beofre the entrée which was nice. The meal wasn't fast--there was some time waiting between courses--but it was excellent.

We have had dinner here 4 x.
First time was perfect

Second time my salmon was tasteless

Third time my husbands chair was broken and he went to get up and the seat came off plus the escargot had little flavor and the fish was not fresh

Forth time was nice we asked for more butter/garlic and it was provided, thank you
Had the sea scallops which were great but the pasta it was served with was cold

This is the second time I’ve eaten at your restaurant. I ordered Osso bucco both times. The first time it was delicious. This last time it was overcooked and just barely warm. The vegetables were undercooked and just barely warm. Everything else was satisfactory.
