The entire experience was outstanding! From setting up the reservation to paying the check at the end of the meal, every step was easy. The staff members who took care of us were warm, friendly, and professional. The food was incredible. The outdoor seating was inviting. We ordered starters, entrees, desserts, and specialty drinks, and all were fantastic. The S'mores Tart was my favorite!

I had the surf and turf. The filet was so tender you could cut it with a regular knife. The lobster tail was perfectly cooked. My husband had the filet with lobster on top with bernaise sauce. So much food, we had another meal at home!

St. George
About the restaurant
A culinary island in Southern Utah, the Painted Pony brings a touch of class--and intriguing flavors--to St. George. The restaurant, tucked away in Ancestor Square, is exceptionally clean and cozy, with contemporary art, fresh flowers, and -- in the evening -- a top notch romantic atmosphere with subdued lighting and patio dining.

If your surroundings don't clue you in, your first glance at the menu will. Painted Pony is not your standard fare. Contemporary American cuisine evidently doesn't mean just another good steakhouse, and the simply written food descriptions promise something new and intriguing for your palate.

The Painted Pony has perfected the fine art of using fresh ingredients and delicate flavoring. An exceptional wine list, generous portions, attentive service, and reasonable prices will convince you to return to "the Pony" anytime you're in St. George.

The service and food was excellent. Given the lackluster service and food in St George this was an unexpected treat. Solid wine list.

We ate dinner here before seeing a show at Tuacahn. The food was absolutely delicious! My sons had the gnocchi in pesto cream sauce and ravioli in Ragu. Both were beautiful and delicious. My spouse had the carbonara, which was finished table side - a great presentation and it tasted so good! I had the lasagna. It has ham in it, and about 20 layers. The sauce was salty and meaty and cheesy. I was just amazed at how good it was! Espresso and dessert to end the meal were fantastic. Thanks for a memorable dining experience! Highly recommend!
