The meat portions are large. That is my only complaint. Everything else was great. We had the elk and beef steaks. The risotto was so good and that porcini butter was heaven! The duck fat fingerling potatoes were perfect! I cannot wait to come back. This will be in our regular rotation for dining out.
What a wonderful place to go if you want excellent food with excellent service.
The elk and filet were amazing. the food is great. i don’t recommend the squash bisque. our server, Tony, was amazing and so fun! definitely expect a hotel atmosphere. but the food is excellent!
Menu very limited and overpriced
Food to spicy to eat
Food was excellent. Atmosphere is quiet and service was great! The menu was limited , but not a problem. Menu had a plate for any type of one’s craving!
Food and drinks and service were fantastic!!! Thank you.
Very good. We had the elk and steak. Both were excellent. The cocktails we had were also awesome. I love ginger so the BT was great, but if you don’t like it like my wife then maybe stay away from that one. She had a cocktail with lavender that was really good as well. Service was great, and it was very clean which I appreciated consider the pandemic. Overall 10/10
My husband and I dined here for my birthday, and it was absolutely delicious. Our drinks were well made and our food was so tasty. And to top it off, amazing service. We will be back the next time we are in SLC!
If it’s in your budget you must have a meal here. Excellent service and even better meal. There was no wrong note. The bisque was velvety smooth and the filet was perfectly medium rare with melt in your mouth bites. If I’m ever in SLC again I will be coming back.
Great experience! Food was amazing! Will be coming back when I’m in town!
Love Bambara. One of my very favorite restaurants and I've never had a bad meal or eating experience there.
Service was not good. Waiter was curt and unfriendly. Scallop dish was good. Tuna dish was poor. No sear on the Tuna and the plate was a mess. Charged us $8 for valet parking? Free everywhere else with meal. Don't carry cash but had $10 to tip valet attendant. Had to use $8 for the fee. Overall, very poor experience.
I want to extend a very sincere apology for your poor experience this month. I will contact you directly to discuss further.
One of our favorite spots ! Loin of elk was amazing
Excellent service and food. The best elk I have ever had!!!
Had a great dinner. Food was delicious. I really liked the chicken
Delicious food. Beautiful atmosphere. Would go again
Everything was very nice. Food excellent and quick service. Accommodated seating request at window. Prices high.
Amazing! The service wasn't amazing and the food was spectacular. I loved the ambience very beautiful setting in the old bank and hotel. And enjoying the company of my friends in the place was amazing again!
Elk steak with risotto!!! Best meal in Utah. Hands down.
Music was odd but the food was spectacular!!!
Favorite place, amazing food and service, highly recommended
Bambara never disappoints. The grilled filet was a revelation of just how good a steak could be. Elegantly plated and well served.
We had a wonderful meal. Our server was checking in with us throughout the meal. The food was delicious. We had the elk and the filet and they were cooked exactly how we asked. I will definitely be coming back.
To expensive and not worth it. I would not recommend it.
Great food and service as always! Can't wait to go back again.
So I rarely complain or leave feedback unless it’s great but on this one I felt like it was necessary to participate in feedback to the restaurant. We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated immediately. We then sat for nearly 10 minutes without water or being visited by a server(I nearly walked out). When we did order, I asked for one small variation in my meal and that was to have vegetables instead of potatoes, my meal arrived under cooked and with potatoes. The person who delivered the food said that they were completely unaware of my request for vegetables. My daughter had the scallops and she felt like they were undercooked as well. The restaurant interior is extremely dated and we kind of thought it was interesting that there were five diamond plaques all over the restaurant from 2009 because the restaurant looks like it hasn’t been updated since then. Earlier that day I had an incredible meal and service experience at the copper onion and we traveled from an area that has less than 200,000 people and our fine dining is far superior to what our experience was at this establishment. I never want to leave a bad review but I feel obligated to let people know what to expect at a restaurant where the average meal per person is easily over $100. I’m happy to spend money on great food and superb service. If I’d known what I know now, I would’ve skipped this one.
Sweet location next to The Vault bar. Enjoyed our meals immensely. Great ambiance and service. No complaints.
Bambara was delicious. We specifically went for the Elk and it did not disappoint. Our experience was delightful, the service was great. Highly recommend this place for a birthday celebration, or a date night.
Great food and service!
The host was rude and brief with us however the whole waiting staff was great. The menu lacked innovation and paying $200 for a dinner for two that included an entree that has fries as side doesn’t sound reasonable. Overall, for the price I would recommend other places.
I am sorry to hear that your experience didn't meet yours, or our expectations during your visit. Steak Frites has been a staple on our menu for many years with Chef changing the protein options weekly. I do not recall having one at $200 though, that would be a hard sell. I hope you give us another chance in the future. Cheers
This is a very nice, upper end restaurant with great service and great food. It is a little pricey but the cost is worth it and the experience could not have been better
Awesome staff, greatest food downtown. The service is spectacular.
I love Bambara and I try to go every New Years Eve or for something special. It is a great place and very pleasant to be in. Christopher was our waiter and he was very engaging and helpful. They are pretty much 5 star with us.
I absolutely enjoyed it my waiter was good my food was delicious and there wine selection was amazing
Thank you for the great review! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Food was really good, service was great. I enjoyed my cocktail very much. It was cold inside the restaurant and a bit dreary but I would probably eat there again.
Undercooked and cold steak for me, but the appetizers and small plates were very good.
Great food, ambiance and service! Everything was great and the hotel itself is very pretty. Highly recommend!
Absolutely loved our experience! The food was amazing
The food was excellent. I think we just had bad luck with our server. He was not very personable. We are quite easy going people, and look forward to friendly banter with our server along with enjoying awesome food. Unfortunately our server that night seemed very disengaged. I still recommend the restaurant for the excellent menu, but the service kind of reduced my rating to three stars.
Great spot, delicious food however our waiter was bit that attentive.
