We were craving authentic Greek food after we returned from Greece and were thrilled when we found Aristos. The hummus is to die for and the Flight of the Gyros gives you an authentic taste of all gyros without being overwhelming huge. We live across the valley and it has always been worth the drive for this amazing dining experience and meal.

Aristo's has always been an enjoyable place to eat. Greek/Mediterranean fare with lots of interesting possibilities. They have gone to a small plate and entrée style which gives the opportunity to try a greater variety of things. I love the fried smelt as an appetizer. Like eating French fried fish. Pleasant atmosphere and good service. Parking is the only issue but it is usually possible.

Aristo’s offers such an interesting menu and interesting cocktails as well. Can’t wait to go back to try more . Lamb ribs fell off the bone. And for dessert try the rice pudding...just like Nana makes!

The food, service, and ambience were all fantastic. I highly recomend this restaurant. Having dined in Greek restaurants all over the United States, and indeed all over the world, this is certainly one of the best. The octopus is tender and flavorful. The lamb chops are perfectly seasoned and grilled. The taramasalata was fantastic! Even the Greek coffee was made like the ones that I have in Kolonaki in Athena every summer. If you are in Salt Lake city for business or pleasure, make the effort to have dinner at this wonderful establishment. Aristides is a gracious host and a master chef.

Went to Aristos with my wife. We are both from Europe and at in many Greek restaurants.
This place serves the most authentic Greek food I have ever had in the United States.
The prices are pretty steep but than again, the food is excellent.
Reservations are easy to make online and specially Friday and Saturday highly recommended.
We’ll certainly come back for more!

Second time(second year) the four of us dined here when visiting the area...We like the food and Fernando was a delightful server! Definitely will share a small salad next time as the delicious Greek salad was too much for two people. Generous portion of Greek olives in the salad. It was too large tho' as we started our meal with the fried smelt and the generous serving was filling. Chicken breast with sauteed greens and served over very flavorful rice was excellent. The gyros tasters with choices of meats were delicious and the potatoes tasty. The pork chops were tender and tasty. Would have loved dessert but they were out of baklaava which amazed us...no Greek restaurant should be out of that!!!!!!!!!! Nice cocktails with the smelt....almost forgot the martini.

We travel the country and try to hit as many restaurants featured on Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives. This was our 47th DDD restaurant, and we're very happy with our choice. Excellent service, and our waiter was very helpful with food selection. The food was very good, with nice presentation. Would recommend to anyone. And thanks Guy, for the recommendation.

Very disappointing experience. Recently moved here from Denver, which does not have upscale Greek restaurants, and where looking so forward to coming here.

The menu and photos looked great. Maybe it was that we dined on a Monday night, but the waiter was not on his game. The octopus was great but the anchovies where extremely fishy. The Greek salad was over plated which made it hard to eat.

Also, the chair look like they where from a hotel banquet room from the 70's.

Never again.

I cannot understand how at 6:30 on a Saturday night a restaurant can already be out of 2 entrees, one salad, and one dessert. It was not busy when we arrived, nor when we left. Overall experience was just meh. Saganaki was not flambeed at the table, so the cheese was already firmed back up when it was served to us. Our other appetizer (forget name) could have used a bit of seasoning (no S&P is on the table). Sea bass turned out to be a whole fish, which was dreadfully overcooked, not meaty at all, and was served to us before we were finished with appetizers. The sad little fish was definitely not worth $33. But the truly egregious price gouging was on the dessert, which was $12. It was delicious, but not $12 worth of delicious. I used to love coming to Aristo's. Maybe they were having an off night, but we certainly won't be rushing to return.

I brought my girlfriend here for her Birthday and we had an amazing time. The menu offers both entree style or traditional Greek style with multiple smaller dishes for everyone to share. We ordered a fair amount of food and everything on the menu was fantastic and the perfect serving size. The service was perfect, the staff knew the food very well and were able to explain what everything was and how it was made. Big shout out to Nora, who offers exceptional service and treated us very well. I'd recommend this to my friends and we'll be returning. Thanks to everyone who worked that night for making our time memorable!

I took my Greek mother-in-law to Aristos but was a bit nervous being that she's a native of Greece. The service given to us by Antony was top notch. He answered all our questions and made recommendations. Their grilled flat bread that accompanies your food is delicious and filling. From the appetizers to the dessert, my mother-in-law said it was the best Greek food she's ever had at a restaurant outside of Greece. YAY!!
