Fantastic service (Jack), and expertly executed dishes.
My spouse & I stayed at the Hotel Monaco and ate at Bambara for my birthday. We had a lovely time - the food was wonderful, the atmosphere was nice, and my spouse loved watching the kitchen. The highlight of our meal was the cheese board - it's an appetizer, but I can picture having it as a full meal.
We liked it so much, we ate at Bambara 2 nights in a row. Over the 2 nights we had, cheese plate (both nights - delicious), hummus, baguette, elk (both nights - that good) and Steak + Frites. Desserts were good and as expected. Great value for us. ~$200 each night before grat. Highly recommend.
Great food and great environment and excellent service
The filet Mignon was our main course, and it was a poor quality cut. It was actually pieced together in a very tiny portion that was tough and actually fatty. The delicious sauce and prep was fantastic, however. Our server was great, and the cheese plate was a great value. Overall, we enjoyed our evening very much.
It's been well over a year since we last ate inside a restaurant, and I'm so glad we chose Bambara as our first "fine dining" outing. The food was wonderful. Our waiter recommended the elk loin, served rare, and it was easily the softest, most flavorful elk I've ever tasted. The berry/cauliflower puree it was served with was incredible-- an interesting culinary theme evoking the woodlands and wilderness. We also ordered the grilled filet of beef, medium rare, with the leek puree and fingerling potatoes. The meat was gorgeous and the flavors were exquisite. The presentation, in all cases, was perfect. We'll definitely be returning again for future special occasions since the price tag IS on the steeper side. =D
Wonderful food and service. The music was very loud which detracted from the ambience, but otherwise it was a perfect meal.
Service was not good. We waited a really long time for our entres and the server never came back to check on us and refill waters. I went to the reception area to ask if we could pay the bill and was rudely told to go find our watier by the bar.
We had a superb evening; our waiter, Jake, was incredibly- very knowledgeable, attentive, and made recommendations for cocktail/wine pairings with food. The only issue was the music was just a bit loud for usual conversation, but nothing that wasn't tolerable.
Bambara was excellent!! My wife and I both got the steak and it was perfect.
Service was fantastic. Food was amazing. Beautifully prepared!
Amazing food that was worth waiting for! Service was seriously lacking and the food took a really long time to come out. A few glimmers of hope with service then long periods of nothing! Sure sure everyone says COVID and no one willing to work- but the restaurant seemed to still be on half capacity and plenty of people around. I loved the food and would definitely try it again!!!
delicious food and great service. we loved our experience there
The food is very good though I wish the portion sizes were a bit larger. The service was a bit slow too. Overall would recommend, just know that service may be slow and that it will be pricey.
Food, service, and ambiance were perfect. Can’t wait to go back.
Really enjoy this place they they really hard to work around allergys and the food has always veen fantastic
Loved all three entrees we ordered for our table of 3. Attentive, courteous service. One of the women at table accidentally left her credit card on table. I received a text (reserv under my name) about 15 minutes later the cc card was secured at the front desk. So honorable!
One word can describe our food “awesome”. Our meal was fabulous
Great meal, excellent food and service for dinner party of 8.
The Elk Loin was terrific. The service was outstanding.
Great meal and service!
We went for Mother’s Day and were not disappointed. She had lobster eggs Benedict and I had the New York for an appetizer we had tempura asparagus All outstanding
The food was delicious and the service was great. We loved the humus appetizer.
Our waiter, Jake, was excellent
Service in the dining room was excellent; service and atmosphere in the bar was lacking.
Very nice and dependable. The menu was a bit limited......Covid?
The atmosphere was very quiet and relaxing. Service was crazy fast and the food was excellent. The New York was delicious, but the scallops were incredible and I recommend getting them (and I’m not even a seafood lover).
Always good at Bambara. Very knowledgeable waiter
The food was fantastic and the service was very good. Great evening waiting for our table at the Kimpton Monaco then dinner. A must place to go!
The ambience could be better, looked a bit too basic. The music can also e improved The food was good even though limited in variety.
Great food and service! We never felt rushed and the service was spot on.
Over rated. Atmosphere is lacking warmth and coziness. Hamburger was tough. Cheesecake was great.
Very expensive which is fine when the food lives up to expectation. Our dinner did not.
It was decent but not outstanding.
I had a very Pleasant experience
My fiancée and I came to Bambara for dinner after I proposed to her earlier in the day. I can say that this was the most amazing restaurant I have ever eaten at. The ambience of the restaurant was amazing and the food was better than anything I’ve had before! I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing restaurant for such a special night. I couldn’t recommend Bambara enough!
Bambara is absolutely incredible... wow. I had the Elk Loin and it was absolutely perfect in every single way. My girlfriend had scallops and they were perfect as well. I was completely satisfied with everything about Bambara and so glad I found it and made the reservation. It was a great end to our Moab vacation and one night stay in SLC.
Went with some friends and it was a great time. Casual upscale dining, not fussy.
Return visit with friend. Just excellent, although somewhat expensive. Quiet enough for conversation, which was purpose of evening. Shall return.
Any menu selection at Bambara is always a good choice!
The food was really good, Enjoy the Elk, juicy and tender.
