    Must give some credit for the menu creativity but the problem here is execution. Loved the unusual offerings but the dishes aren't explained and are grouped in ways that don't really tell you if they are mains or sides. The staff is pretty much clueless and unengaged. Overheard one customer ask if a dish was good to be told by the server that the portion was small. The noodle/lump crab dish had zero crab to be found. Steak was good quality but presented sliced and plated looked like someone had lost something on the plate and rummaged through the meat to find it. Red wine was chilled-- really chilled. Best thing about the restaurant was a live loop guitarist who was phenomenally good. But food and especially the service we're lacking.

    This is a nice, small restaurant and the waitstaff were very friendly. The food however took over an hour to come out and only one item came out as ordered. One member of our party had a dairy intolerance and request that the sauce and cheese be excluded. The waiter understood this but the kitchen did not follow directions. The entree was sent back and a new one promised but after another 30 minutes (and everyone else in the party having finished their meal), we requested the order be cancelled and left the restaurant. I would be weary of this location if you have food allergies or intolerances or if you are interested in dining in a reasonable time period.

    The kitchen dropped our ticket and it took over an hour to get one of our main dishes. Four in our party had completely finished before the entree arrived. It was excellent food, and our waiter was amazing, which saved the day, but the kitchen didn’t time our plates well at all.

    Out of a few things for Breakfast at 9am. Kind of annoying. We picked it for the biscuits and gravy and they were all out. We selected the croque instead, only to find out that they were out of the sauce.

    Just mediocre food for far too much money. It was also awkward and small. I guess their main dining room was under construction or something, because it was literally just 5 tables in the hotel lobby. Not worth the prices and a disappointment considering we went to celebrate our engagement

    We take part in the monthly winter package through The Petals Spa-they have a new program with set meals menu-the appetizer was average, the hummus was too salty. The salad and soup was okay-the main course-you chose one for the couples package-no big deal, but could they present the entree split on separate plates? Everything was just halfway, and when we asked for wine, which we pay on own, the wine was old despite the waiter telling us it was just opened. The waiter had only us and things were so unorganized-no extra plates for the apps or the other half of the entree. The hostess was on the internet and we felt we put her out. The new menu idea with the package, I do not get at all, and we will go the spa, but the Anthera needs serious help-it has had its issues but now, it is the worst we have experienced.

    Second time eating here and this experience was vastly different. Service was very slow, wine pours very small and not a good wine for 24$. Ordered ahi tuna steak and it was extremely over cooked. Had to get a second one and wait even longer. Pizzas very small. Wouldn’t go back.

    This "upscale" restaurant is actually outside on a patio with plastic covering the window area for the winter season. They've crammed in as many tables as they could, leaving about 6 inches between you and the diner next to you. Our server took our order, delivered the food, and we never saw her again. No water, no 2nd glass of wine, no dessert, and couldn't find her for the bill. Food is expensive, $40-$60 entrees. No service, no bueno!

    The food was great. The service was terrible. The waitress had a bad attitude. The people sitting next to us were there before us, but didn’t get their food until after us. We waited 20-30 min just for our drinks. There was also a man there that was sitting eating his dinner, and they asked him to move to a different table so they could fit a party of six at his table Seemed like poor taste. Our first experience was great. The waiter was great. But this second experience was terrible.

    We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights and this was our only dinner here. Food was excellent. Service was terrible. We were 1 of 2 tables at the time (6pm) with what appeared to be 3 waitstaff plus hostess and it took 15 minutes to get drinks. She also just came up to the table and said “would you like any alcohol? Oh are you 21?” First off, off putting. Secondly I’m 31 and he’s 40 and we do not look like teenagers.Our waitress did not ask us about the soup or salad that came with our meals so my husband said something at the end of us ordering and she says “oh yeah sure” and he ordered soup and I ordered salad. The soup and salad never came. Our steaks were excellent. Then when the bill came we said we never got our soup and salad- she laughed and said “oh I forgot to put it in! I was so busy getting your drinks (which were LEMONADES)” She never apologized and just stared at us and says they aren’t on the bill. My husband says they aren’t because they are supposed to come with dinner. She then apologized and gave us 20% off. Terrible service with a few tables. I would not come back for dinner- there are several other nice restaurants in town with great meals and better service. We have had lovely servers for breakfast every day and the food is excellent. Sometimes a bit slow, but never a major issue.

    I really wanted to love this place. So much potential in such a beautiful area. If we could sit outside it would have been better but too cold. Tables are tightly packed. The food has wayyy too many side options going on. It’s too much. You get soup or salad plus 2-3 sides with dinner so we couldn’t take leftovers with us since we were traveling. There were only 2 servers but only 6 tables booked and they kept disappearing. The menu is strange. Maybe good for breakfast but nothing really goes together and compliments the mains ( sides) The lamb was ok but the prices are way too high. They could cut back on sides and portions and make a lot more money. I’d try it again because of the location but they need to rework their menu and they were out of a lot of the things on drink menu.

    They were out of at least three bottles of wine we ordered. It was the strangest restaurant experience in a long time. The server, her first day, was as gracious as she could be under the circumstances out of her control. The food was fine.

    Really lovely restaurant, made great by the exceptional serving staff. Tiffany was just wonderful, we would loved for her to pull up a chair, have a glass of wine and keep on chatting. She was great! The live music was perfect until he finished too early at 8pm! The background ambiance of his guitar and great voice was perfect, have no idea why he had to finish so early and the staff didn’t play music through a sound system? Food was ok but the service and location more than made up for it!

    We dined here for dinner & bfast and it was not worth it. They were out of a lot of things, e.g. certain wines, gin, English muffins. We had the flank steak and it was really mediocre. The singer who entertained us at dinner was delightful. The service was decent. But for the prices, you’re better off dining elsewhere.

    We were seated at restaurant and the first sign of trouble was they didn’t have enough menus. We were seated and waited We watched for 15 minutes while the staff talked at the bar. No one greeted us or gave us water or asked us to be patient they would be right with us. Nothing. So we asked if someone was going to help us. They said they were busy and they would be with us as soon as they could. The other two folks who came in after us had same experience. All of us left. Would not recommend

    While the food and wait service was okay, the ambience is awful. Banquets sink so low they tell you you may want to use this extra (old and stained) cushion to sit on. The dining area is covered, but open air. When we asked for heaters to be turned on, we were told they do not work. This place is old and tired. I gave it 2 stars instead of one because the waitress really did do her best but go somewhere else!

    Very nice setting at the lower level outdoor patio. Food was decent but extremely overpriced for the quality. Service was deplorable. It has been many years since we have seen worse. I understand that it is difficult to find enough help in certain areas but they would be better off significantly curtailing the number of tables.

    Friendly waiter and nice Live-music - that’s the best I can say about that place. Should have gotten superstitious when I noticed the place being empty at 7 p.m. Ordered the artichoke dip for starters as I was looking for something on the healthier side. The dip proved to be a hot pan with lots of bechamel sauce and cheese, little to no artichoke, barely edible, I couldn’t eat it. The waiter was so nice not to put it on our check. Main was a salad for me and pasta for the ripe price of 40$ for the hubby. This dish was again drowned in a super rich cheesy sauce. My salad came with unpeeled edamame beans, which I had to pick out of my salad and peel them, the skin isn’t edible. The waiter said he didn’t know why the kitchen did that as they know, I wasn’t the first to complain. To top it, one of the cherry tomatoes in my salad hat already gone bad with mold, that’s when we decided not to have any more food, dessert or drinks from that place. I’m clueless why a Curio by Hilton is interested in scaring customers away with such a badly managed kitchen? Would highly not recommend this place at all. My advice for the restaurant : stick to the basics, simple menu, cook only what you know and don’t try to live up to standards you can’t reach and stick to fresh, favorably local produce. Maybe customers might return.

    They add tip automatically even if you are 2 people, never heard of this at a fine restaurant. Tip should be customer’s discretion. The waitress(s) need to be educated about wine, she was clueless! I felt tables were not tended and cleaned after clients left. I don’t enjoy looking at dirty plates when I am eating a nice meal with a nice ambiance and a view.

    This was our first dinner visit, but we had really enjoyed breakfast there previously. The setting is spectacular and the gardens beautiful. Unfortunately, the temperature was over 100 degrees at 7:00 p.m., and their misters weren't working, they said. It was too hot to enjoy the setting or the meal. As for the food, it is expensive and only average for the price. My salad entree had good ingredients and flavors, but was literally swimming in dressing so the greens were wilted. The best part of the meal was the company at our table and the great musician, Greg Istock who performed for diners. Excellent. Pretty sure we won't go back there again in the summer heat. I recommend breakfast but not dinner in the summer heat.

    The service was friendly and courteous. The food was not fresh the appearance was average. The beets had no taste. The shrimp was over cooked and chewy, the salmon was dry and the blueberries and strawberries were not fresh. The bill was $100.00 for two salads and appetizer. That is a little much even in Zion. The chairs were too low for the table. The views were fantastic.

    Some parts of our meals were tired for example some of the salad leaves were past their best. The raspberries with the cheese cake were also tired. However, the seafood pasta and pork chop was great. Our server in the evening was excellent but over stretched, and some drinks look a long time.

    Ordered the walnut crusted salad. Majority of the lettuce looked like it was poured out the bag and was wilted. No walnuts on the salad. Only 2 choices for the salad dressings. Also ordered the artichoke appetizer. All the ingredients were in large pieces not dip size or easy to eat unless you cut them up first for the pita chips.

    Our meal was overpriced for the poor quality of meat. Ribeye was terrible. Worst we have ever had.

    Wife and I stopped by for lunch she had a salad and I had a burger with beer batter parmesan cheese fries. They were delicious some of best chips and dipping sauce I have ever had. The wife really liked her salad. I didn’t have to ask her. She told me! And it didn’t stay on the plate long. We will visit this place again!
