About

New Yorker, a public dining establishment, is “the place to dine” in Salt Lake City. Located in the 1906 New York Hotel (listed on the National Register of Historic Places), New Yorker has consistently been rated as Utah’s dining establishment of choice. The delectable menus that change with the seasons and the exceptionally gracious service contribute to their many awards: top American Cuisine, business dining, superb downtown location, exceptional décor, best classic cocktails, and ambiance… just to name a few. In keeping with its name, the restaurant reflects a classic 1940s New York elegance with a unique stained glass ceiling and luxurious banquettes, both elements originating from the now renovated historic 1911 Hotel Utah.

OpenTable Diner (Salt Lake City)
2.0  Dined on May 31, 2017

This was my first time dining at the New Yorker and I will say I was not very impressed. For a restaurant that is known for their filets and sirloins I was very disappointed. First off after receiving our soups and salads we waited almost an hour before our meals came out. The kitchen was backed up because of a new wine pairing menu they were offering for the first time that night. When my filet finally did arrive the bottom was charred and inedible and the filet was cooked to a medium instead of a medium-rare which I had ordered. I would have sent it back to be redone, but I did not want to hold up the rest of my party so I could wait another 45 minutes to get another filet. Definitely not worth the $50+ that I was charged for the filet. Definitely glad that this dinner was paid for using a gift card because I would have never paid for that quality of food without it. But I decided to give 2 stars because the waitress was very nice and kept apologizing for the delay. Also I usually do not mind having piano played in the background while at a restaurant, but when the pianist starts to play the Mario theme song, it definitely ruined the atmosphere that was there.

Food and service was great. Was surprised how few diners were here for a Saturday night (it was Easter weekend though). Didn't need reservations. It turned out to be a great meal with no distractions.

Food was good
As a native New Yorker
I was pleased to see Long Island duck
And Montauk Point calamari on the menu
They had Graham's 30 year port
The Cod fish was good and it was not covered in flour products
Desert menu was also worth spending calories on

Food was extraordinary, menu was delightfully different, waiter was eccentric but attentive. It was so impressive we went back the next day for lunch!

For the money I would recommend going to the Oyster Bar instead. I ordered a Veal with Crab. The veal was bland and the Crab hard like rubber. For the price the quality felt mediocre. Also their drinks were not the best. However I will say the service was great as the server was attentive and interacted with us well. I have no regrets going here for dinner, but I'll likely not return.

Everything was good until the shuttle to the Symphony, offered by the restaurant, got in a fender bender and we had to walk to the Symphony.

The New Yorker in downtown Salt Lake City is always the best for value, ambiance, service, and the food is incredible. It is consistent at each visit. The menu changes different times of the year to keep it an exciting and interesting place to go. But, they also have great items on the menu that have been there as standards and for a reason, they are the comfort foods that are incredible.

Have always loved the New Yorker. It has a great look and feel, but it's a bit pricey for a regular go to.

My steak was $52. I asked for it medium-well and it came out VERY WELL. Server never asked us how it was even though half the steak was still on the plate when we said we were done. So we paid and left. We will never be back. What a rip off.

We began our evening by having a serving assistant spill a water all over my partner and I and our table....of course, it was a simple mistake and we weren't upset at all. Then as we moved to our new table, a different server knocked into it and sent the vase and flower flying, water included; round two in less than a minute! Again, a simple mistake; but at this point, both my partner and I are soaked and haven't even cracked a menu. At no point through out the evening was any offer made to compensate us for our repeated splashing.

Then, the food. We ordered a bottle of wine, three appetizers, an entree each, and a desert wine and desert each.

Unfortunately, nothing was good enough to warrant the price tag. I have no problem paying high prices for great food; but this was all far from great. The oysters were fishy and tough; the salmon was dry and didn't have any flavor. Every dish was subpar, which was incredibly disappointing for a restaurant that is generally held in high regard. $350 later, and we will never revisit. We will stick with Ruth's Chris.

The food and service was amazing! My only complaint was that the dining room was really loud. I could barely here my boyfriend from across the table and the waiter was obviously struggling to hear us even though we were practically yelling our order to him.

This is by far the NICEST restaurant in SLC, for special occasions, date night , taking customers.
I have been going to the New Yorker sense it opened, up until a few years ago could always count on Tom Seig setting at the end of the Bar.. The GOOD OLD DAYS..😊😬
You are treated very well from all the staff..

Sit in one of the more formal booths if you are looking for a more romantic or quieter atmosphere. The atmosphere hasn't changed (which is good!) since we were engaged in booth number ten 37 years ago and enjoyed the table this past Valentines Day. Excellent Chef who has been with the New Yorker for years and who fine-tuned his expertise along the way. We welcome the restaurant's invitation to bring your own cork-finished wine......since the New Yorker has never been known for an interesting and consumer friendly wine list.
