Steak in steak salad a bit grizzly but overall a very pleasant experience.
Bambara has a creative menu to please a variety of palates. They are really trying to be upscale. We were disappointed with some items. Our blue cheese chips were overdone. We had to ask for bread. They brought 2 pieces for 3 people and it arrived with our entrees (we wanted it for the salads). One salad was a cucumber salad which was so spicy hot, we could barely eat the rest our items. When we expressed it was so hot, it couldn’t be eaten, the waitress just apologized yet still charged $14 for it.
At almost $100 per person for dinner, appetizer, a glass of wine, and shared dessert, I expect spectacular.
Sorry but the server we had was terrible and he took forever on taking orders and food took forever to get to us and 3/4 dishes came cold. I except when I go to high end restaurant that you should experience the best not just so so. So I definitely will never eat here again.
I actually didn't enjoy my meal which was the gnocchi.
My uncle and I both had the shrimp and grits and we both loved it. The sauce was excellent with just the right amount of spice, the polenta creamy, cheesy, and delicious. This restaurant is very pleasant and attractive. However, when I reached for the sugar packets it was easy to see that the ledge hadn't been dusted in probably several weeks. This is the kind thing that might not bother some people, but it's so easy to fix why not just give the ledge a dusting once a week? If the restaurant fixed this little detail I could recommend it easily.
Amazing meal and experience. The staff was prompt, friendly and courteous. The filet and broccolini were to die for!
Bambara is always good. Elk was delicious as was corn risotto and herbed frites!
Martini was watered down and disappointing. Tempura veggie appetizer was mediocre. Highlight was delicious filet of beef, and friend had scallops that were fantastic. Jack was a wonderful waiter and went out of his way to find a special dessert we requested.
Best food ever! I highly recommend it to everyone!
Wine corkage was $25.00. Waiter didn’t decay the wine and poured the first two glasses. This is highway robbery, not to mention the price of wine is quadruple the cost of the liquor store. It’s unsettling and I won’t be back.
The food here I’d usually good. We dined for brunch, which was very good.
The elk steak was amazing. One of the best steaks I’ve ever had.
We've dined at Bambara numerous times and this meal was exceptional! The best dinner I've ever had in Salt Lake City!
prices on wine very expensive. Way over priced Food was also a bit pricy, waiter could have been more pleasant.
The Branzino is remarkably excellent! Together with the other offerings, a great menu.
Superb food . . . . . nice ambiance in the stately old marble and stone!
Nice atmosphere not so loud. We could have a nice conversation
Jake Bowers our Server was amazing
The food and ambiance was very nice. Service was superb!
The food was very good, but our martini's were below expectation. Also, the 600+% markup on the wines was a little over the top.
Great service and fantastic food. Waiter was excellent and ordered for us a congratulatory dessert. Overall great night.

Bambara is an amazing restaurant. The dinner we had one evening was so wonderful that we went back the next day for brunch. We highly recommend it.
We have been to Bambara before and have enjoyed it. However after our experience on Thursday night we will not be back. We ordered a steak to split as well as an appetizer. The steak was Tough and unappetizing and the appetizerWas cold. We did not fit finish either of the dishes. For the $80 bill that we paid for the mail we felt that the value was not there.
Michael thank you so much for taking the time to review us! Please come back anytime.
Excellent experience at Bambara. But be prepared to pay top dollar for the experience. Worth it.
I’ve never had anything but an excellent meal at Bambara. The blue cheese potato chips are a must!!!!
Linda, thank you for taking the time to review us! Please come back anytime, we'd love to serve you again.
really nice and tasty food specially the halibut and the chicken
kind helpful waiters
a bit overpriced
Anne, thank you for your review. Please come back anytime!
Really fantastic meal here. Inventive flavors and interesting cocktails. I had the squash falafel, za'tar bread with honey butter, and chicken with basmati rice, currants and spices. The noise level was a bit much for a peaceful meal but I think if I'd been dining with someone else it would have been a great mask for conversation.
Elk steak was good. Filet was standard. We have been spoiled at other restaurants for celebrations such as bday or anniversary in the past with desserts and champagne ... we chose Bambara based on the review this was a good place for celebrations.. well, there was nothing special for our anniversary. Overall, fell short of expectations on a number of levels, but for our first anniversary we had hoped for something special.
Outstanding dining experience! Our server, Jake was spot on, knew his wine, knew the menu and was very accommodating! The kitchen staff perfectly executed the menu and the menu is artfully designed!
Venue is nicely set up and we have to say, this was one of the best Kimpton Hotel dining experiences we've ever had!
Thank you so much for taking the time to review us! Jake is an excellent server and a valued part of the Bambara team. We're so happy he was able to host you. Please come back anytime, we'll save you a spot in his section!
The food was okay. The wedge salads were small but flavorful. The Halibut was moist but lacked seasoning. The beed was good but again very small portions. The house mad chips and blue cheese was delicious. Service was quick and professional. Wish the food was better.
Those booths are really uncomfortable and there are only a few tables. The service was great, food was good, really good salmon.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review us! We are slowly replacing our booth seats with a fabulous lining of microfiber foam, to offer our guests a cozier experience. We appreciate you dining with us. Please come back anytime (we'll get you a table by the windows!).

John, thank you for your review. Our only goal at Bambara is to please the guests who choose to dine with us. We appreciate your patronage and hope to see you soon!
Me and my girlfriend went on a monday evening for my birthday. the service was excellent. The atmosphere is nice although feels pretty crammed into a small space. the food was really good for the most part but i think the prices are to high especially on the salads and sides. even the entrees seemed a little to high to me. overall it was good and i would probably go back again.
