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.

Having access to a restaurant like this in St. George is a godsend! Happy to escape the overload of chains.

The side dishes were every good. The main courses were tough and dry. I would not go back for the quality of food for that price. The ambience was very nice but wish a the food tasted better. Also the presentation of the food was very prettt.

This restaurant was a great find. It was hard to get a reservation, but if you can get one, you will enjoy it. Our party of 3 tried the hanger steak, ribeye steak and seared ahi tuna. All were cooked perfectly and seasoned well. For appetizers, we did the bacon-wrapped dates and coconut shrimp. The dates were my favorite by far. We found reasonable and tasty selections on the wine list for our meal, too. Service was outstanding. Brice was friendly and attentive. I highly recommend this place if you are in St. George.

We have eaten here twice for birthday dinner this winter. The food is served nicely, and the onion soup in it's own onion skin is amazing! The other appetizers and main courses I have eaten all had a flavor of bacon that I did not appreciate. It was not exactly inappropriate, but overwhelmed the more delicate flavors of my dinner choices. Next time I will ask for no bacon added to anything I order.

We came to the restaurant to celebrate a birthday. We were so pleased with the quality of the food and our service was impeccable. Our server overheard that it was a birthday and arrived after dinner with a lovely dessert with a candle! We definitely felt like we received first class service! Thanks so much Painted Pony ... will visit again on my next trip to St. George!

We had a wonderful Valentine's Day dinner at the Painted Pony. Our server, Carina, provided excellent information about food choices from the evening's tasting menu and was kind and attentive throughout. We had the halibut from the tasting menu, the petite fillet, house salad and excellent wines from the restaurant's cellar. The entire staff were welcoming and friendly. Our experience was absolutely perfect - just what we have come to expect from this fine restaurant!

My experience with the pain upon it was incredible. The Painted Pony was very busy but that didn’t seem to make a difference on the kind of service and the quality of the food. The ambiance was excellent and the overall experience would definitetly make me want to return. It is one of my most favorite restaurants to have a very special occasion dinner with my sweetheart. We loved it!

We had heard from a friend that the Painted Pony was the palace to go for a fine dining experience. We were not disappointed. Everything was perfect! We will be back.

Very disconnected. Some courses arrived as expected others very slow. Had the French onion soup and it was all about the gimmick and not the food. Very bland and the cooked onions still firm. Seems to have lost a step

Received excellent service; however, both entries arrived at the table barely warm. This is not acceptable, especially at their prices. Went there on someone else's recommendation.
