History and innovation go hand in hand at Bambara, from the décor to the menus. Critically acclaimed and locally loved, Bambara’s grand arched windows, original brass accents and travertine marble blend stylishly with its contemporary design. In Chef Nathan Powers’ dynamic exhibition kitchen, ingredients from local farmers and ranchers are reimagined as inspired New American bistro plates. In a nod to the diversity of tastes and preferences of our clients, we are happy to offer a range of vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options in addition to our regular menus.

My wife and I have been here a few times now. Every time we have gone the service has been the same. So when you go you can expect the same. The waiter has been on top of everything it seems that the management does not spread the waiters to then. They also have potters that come around and help with water filling and cleaning the table. The food has been great tasting every time we have gone. This time my wife had the stake and I had the short ribs ravioli. The ravioli had a great flavor the only problem I had with my meal was that it only came with 4 smallish raviolis. I would have liked to have had a little bit more.

Great food. Service was polite but it seemed clear that we weren’t that important because we didn’t order drinks. One of our meals was dropped and it took a long time for it to be re-made. We were late for our movie as a result and couldn’t enjoy dessert. We were in the restaurant 1-1/2 hours and we didn’t receive our entrees until 20 min before we had to leave. At least the ambience was nice. I would give this place another chance though.

Overall I was disappointed with my visit to Bambara. The appetizer and salad courses were lovely, but things turned south when the mains arrived. They looked thrown together, and the gnocchi that so many reviews raved about was FAR over cooked.

Fantastic food, and even better service! Atmosphere is ok, nothing super special about it, but if you’re looking for good food and service in SLC- this is the place!

We were really looking forward to eating here, but it was very disappointing. It took quite a while to get our initial cocktails, when we did they were NOT good. We had wedge salads which were not very good. Our waiter was constantly bringing us the wrong food or drinks. Entrees were decent but took forever to get the wine with our entrees. The freak-show level of this place was off the charts, and made the atmosphere very uncomfortable. Definitely not a place to bring children.
