Christopher's Prime Steak House & Grill Ratings and Reviews
The service was excellent and we enjoyed our filet mignon steaks they were prepared just perfectly the special that we ordered was well worth the value we finished with that ice cream dessert which was also excellent we could suggest they have some nice mints at the door when checking out
My boyfriend and I hadn't been out of the house and away from the kids in weeks. This was the best date we have had in quite some time. The food was amazing. A steakhouse very well done. It is quiet, you're not having to yell over music to speak to each other across the table. It's not so dark that you can't see anything around you either. We had the shrimp cocktail to start, I had a flight of white wine and he had a specialty cocktail. They were lovely and paired well with the food. I then left the choice of my red up to our server and was thrilled with the meal. I wanted to take another order of brussel sprouts home in my purse with me. By far the best meal I have had in some time. Wonderful experience that I will definitely be doing again.
Halloween is a quiet night for restaurants. For the first hour we had the place to ourselves. We pretened we had great wealth and bought our Christopher’s for our private anniversary dinner.
When we checked directions with the iPhone, Siri told us they were pricey. That made us laugh. She was right they are pricey, but we were prepared for it armed with a GroupOn coupon.
The filet mignon was wonderfu.
My negative review has nothing to do with the quality of the food or service at Christophers. Both were first rate and it would have been a delightful evening except for the fact I got a parking ticket by ABM Parking services who apparently own the lot where the restaurant is located. I would have gladly paid the parking fee but I never saw the sign that specified a parking fee for the lot. Nor did I notice the sign in the restaurant tucked into a dark corner of the hostess desk (where no hostess ever was while I was there 2 X in one night). (There is an 8.5X11 inch framed small print note that the restaurant recommended patrons pay for parking as they were not responsible for it or any damage to your car. I saw it only when I returned to complain. There was still no hostess at the desk. )
So, a $5 parking fee turned into a $50 parking ticket because I did not see the sign off to the side of the entrance. I only saw it and the sign on the hostess desk when I returned to the restaurant to complain about the ticket after I had left the first time and I was looking for both this time. There also appeared to be a parking attendant who skulked around in the dark, apparently waiting for miscreants to not pay their parking fee so he could stick the parking violation ticket on the car. I only noticed him when I returned the second time to complain about the parking ticket. I think he was getting ready to write me a second violation but I drove off too soon the second time. The whole affair smelled like a scam to me. This ruined what would have been a perfectly good experience at the restaurant. Other local high end restaurants also charge for parking but it is clearly marked at the entrance and there is usually valet parking there as well. They also validate with discounts for parking fees. Not so at Christophers. Given the price of the meal combined with the parking ticket, I was left with a very bad taste in my mouth.
This is an old-school steakhouse, and you pay dearly for the environment. The meat, a dry-aged, bone-in ribeye was excellent, and prepared perfectly. The sides were decent, but markedly unspectacular: grilled asparagus tasty but over cooked, wedge salad crisp but bland, dinner rolls unremarkable and accompanied by distractingly sweet honey butter. The service was attentive and friendly, but not particularly knowledgeable. Along with the meat, what is noteworthy is the quiet stake house vibe, with high backed booths, low lighting, and a hushed reverence for aged meat. It is locally owned, and in every way superior to the big-chain steakhouse around the corner, but don’t go looking for a bargain. This is the place to take your date before the prom, or for your 30th anniversary, but take a pass if you are looking for creativity or for a bargain.
For the most part everything was good. Service impeccable. I was a disappointed in the food and this for the second time. For the price, which I think is way overpriced, I expected much better. I have had better steaks elsewhere for a lot less. Also the ambiance is nice but it reminds me of a gentleman's club. The kind you'd get together at and drink brandy and smoke a cigar. If you want to spend a lot of money on dinner, here's the restaurant to do that.
The steak was to die for, quite literally! The asparagus was cooked and seasoned perfectly and I was extremely impressed with the staff. Crème Brule was yummy and the water tasted great! My husband and I went here on a special night out "date" and it was wonderful, quiet and best of all, we arrived a bit late for our reservation, and the staff was still so hospitable and kind! 5 out of 5 stars!
Food was great! Our server was less than helpful. We asked about a promotion going on, and he said he thought it was going on but didn't give us much more information than that. Our water was never refilled. Was not worth the price paid. We've had much better steak for less money.
Christopher's provided an unforgettable dining experience during our visit to Salt Lake City. Not only were there a variety of intriguing options on the menu, but the food was prepared perfectly, and the service was exceptional. Our server made sure dinner felt unrushed and made us feel like special guests. We even received tourist suggestons from her, and were invited to tour the entire facility by the management staff. It was a special evening, and we will be sure to return if our travels bring us back to this area!
Drinks were good, service was excellent, along with appetizer, but the ahi tuna special was extremely undercooked and lacking flavor. The tuna was also placed on a sloppy bed of noodles, with a flavor that did not compliment the tuna steak. This was displeasing, as it was mine and my finances first time at Christopher's.
For a steakhouse, the steak was very disappointing (not to mention the most expensive item(s) on the menu by far). The cocktails were good. The desserts were excellent. The salads and sides were very good. The service was good. The steak was very disappointing.
My expectations were too high. When we arrived I let the host know we had a reservation for 2 at 7:30. He acted like he didn't know we had a reservation and told us to have a seat in the waiting area. We waited for about 10 minutes past our reservation time, meanwhile a party of 4 and another party of 2 was seated before us that supposedly had reservations, I'm assuming for the same time. After the hostess was wandering around he finally took us to a table. We were waiting for quite sometime until our waiter came to the table in a rush fashion saying, "I guess I will be your waiter , the other guy is disposed". He took our order and the time it took between appetizers and main dishes was very drawn out and lengthy. We ended up having another person wait on us back and forth. After we received our steak, we were told that the sides we ordered (loaded baked potatoes) were out. They told us they would give us some samples of different sides but did not give us the option to choose. We were brought asparagus, brussel sprouts and corn pudding. The asparagus was good, we don't like brussel sprouts and would not order them in the first place. The corn pudding was not cooked all the way. We ended up asking if they had any other sides and they brought us garlic fries that were soggy and mushrooms. The mushrooms were good but our steaks were pretty much gone by the time we got the sides. All in all, for the price we paid for this food and experience I was very disappointed and would not go back or recommend it. Hopefully this was just an "off night" for them and we just happened to get in the middle of it.
