I brought my Mom to Oasis Cafe for dinner and didn’t know about the pre fix New Years Eve menu. Not to worry because it was all delicious and a good value at $50 each. Mom’s tuna tartare appetizer was bright and delicious, while my tofu and veggies option was just okay (similar to what I cook at home). Mom’s second course was a shrimp bisque which she really enjoyed, and my blue cheese and smoked bacon salad was also really tasty. Then came the main course. Mom liked the lobster pasta dish but felt that the sauce overpowered the lobster. My filet mignon was cooked to perfection and I throughly enjoyed it, however the leek risotto that accompanied it was over the top with garlic. The wine selection and old fashioned that we enjoyed were on point. All in all, it was a lovely night out. I’ve eaten here many times for brunch and lunch so it was definitely a safe bet. The beet salad on their regular menu is definitely crave-worthy and worth mentioning!

The last two times I ate here my guest and I both got sick 7 to 9 hours later. Also the tomatoes in the caprese salad were not heirloom. Others must agree as businesses way down

I met a friend at Oasis, i had not been. I loved reserving our table from the parking lot and reading the menu while i waited for his arrival. The service was awesome and unrushed. The food was on the healthy side but still good. No booths, but the tables were fine.....didnt feel like your cafateria in a sheep pen. Very cozy atmosphere.....even above average. Prices i feel are awesome. Very cool gift shop attatched with your typical Salt Lake "hippie" 420 vibe 😁. Definately one to try if you havent yet.

We love Oasis for brunch and go often. It’s terrific. We were looking for a dinner place and realized we had never thought or heard about Oasis for dinner. There’s a reason: the food was terrible. Only one of six of us liked our entree. We had a wide variety of dishes: beef fajitas, mahi mahi special, noodles, tuna sushi. All were mediocre to terrible. And it was incredibly expensive: around $25 for an entree without sides. We plan to go again for lunch but will not return for dinner.

Overall we like the Oasis cafe, but the tables are so crammed together that the place is insanely noisy. We couldn’t even have a conversation with each other. Good food though.

Prompt service, beautiful setting, and exquisite food. I had their grilled salmon on a bed of greens, delicious fresh bread, tea and creme brûlée for dessert. Prices incredibly reasonable for the taste. I will go back as often as possible.

We’ve been coming to the Oasis for years, always a positive experience. Not this time. These are my complaints: the ladies restroom was messy and needed cleaning. My Mahi dinner was not satisfactory mashed potatoes were warm not hot, the Mahi was dry, actually used a knife to cut it and it was small serving of fish for $25.
Because of a communication problem my husband did not get the meal he thought he had ordered, our server was very nice and got the meal he wanted. He said his meal was good.

The Oasis is a pleasant stop for the four of us before every SLAC performance. I gave it a '4' for food because my 'three-course- special' included halibut that was WAY too done. Yes, I know halibut is normally 'dense' and thus not as moist as other fish but I've had tons of fish at the Oasis and this was just plain dry! Everyone else liked what they had and commented on it.

Service was excellent. The flourless chocolate cake is terrific. My complaint here is specific and does not reflect my feeling about the restaurant over many years. We'll be back.
