Food was great. Hated the flies.
Food was excellent. Tried to seat us outside in the 99* heat, even with a confirmed reservation. Had to escalate to the MOD and situation was resolved within 10min. Outside of this major error, everything else was stellar.
Friendly staff, great food, lots of choices! We ate at Balcony One both nights we were staying in Virgin! Highly recommend
Our dinner of pork chops and ribs were delicious and cooked perfectly. We loved the ambiance of Balcony One. Mandy was very attentive and made sure our dinner experience was an enjoyable one. Definitely a restaurant recommendation for family and friends.
The owners were really nice and the space is okay (not the decor as much as the Santa Fe-inspired building). We wanted to love the place, but unfortunately, the food was bland, to say the least...
Amazing place! You MUST visit this restaurant. We came to Zion as visitors from Miami and we were surprised how AMAZING the service and the food was. We order a little bit of everything and every plate was simply very well done and with an amazing flavor. The chef is able to elaborate great dishes with at elevated experience.
This restaurant made our trip VERY memorable!
Third time dining at Balcony 1. The first time was quite good. The second time less so and the third time disappointing. The highlight was actually my old fashioned cocktail. The appetizers were ok (pigs knuckle, ceviche and empanada) by I thought they were less tasty than last time.
My entree was inedible- the baby back ribs were dry, flavorless and overly spiced - I won’t order that again. The side dishes were equally not enjoyable.
We also ordered the penne pasta with bolognese sauce which tasted like it came from a jar.
I will think long and hard before dining here again.
Great place with great food and service! Short drive from St. George or coming down from Zion.
Food was excellent. Service was terrific. Very friendly atmosphere. Recommend highly.
My friends and I dined here on a night when a local band (3 Hattrio) was playing. What a treat to enjoy live music again! Best food in Southern Utah, stellar service and a beautiful restaurant… What more do you need?
The directions to the restaurant need a lot of improvement.
Ate here while visiting Zion National Park. Beautiful building! Food was great and server was excellent!
Absolutely amazing service by Tina and the little boy serving bread. Never felt that I was being ignored or forgotten. The food was great as well although I wish one of the pork appetizer we tried was more flavorful. Unfortunately the Ahi wasnt available due to shipment malfunction but everything else was still amazing. My boyfriend only ever orders lemonade and theirs was absolutely perfect on sweetness and tart. Adored this place so much! As a Minnesotan, theres a ton of restaurant in the metro but none has ever left such an impression like this restaurant.
Food & service were outstanding! Highly recommend to anyone coming into the area. By leaps and bounds one of our favorite spots to eat when visiting Zion NP!
We absolutely love this gem of a restaurant. Amazing Greek dishes.
My wife and I decided to try something different and Balcony one delivered. Highly recommend their ribs with an old fashion.
We loved this Gem which is situated in a tiny town. The menu was excellent with a wide variety of foods to please all palates.
We especially enjoyed our Waitress Elyssa. She was very efficient but really friendly. You could tell she loved her job & was happy where she worked.
We had delicious food & a very enjoyable evening.
Hands on H-W owners came around to tables, built and designed this stand alone restaurant in Santa Fe style. Good food, good portions.
Try the arugula salad!! It was fresh and crisp. The lemon vinaigrette hits all the right notes!
Place is amazing. Food is tremendously savory. Booked reservation for two and two more joined unexpectedly. They made immediate accommodations for our larger party. They ran out of the signature ribs and was given oven roasted chicken as another entree option-to much satisfaction. Perfectly tender and flavorful. Had such a variety of types of foods and all were so well prepared by the chefs that you would think each dish was specific to a specialty restaurant. The restaurant employs young and old and you feel like their family; always refilling water and removing emptied plates. Flash Baked Potato was a surprise treat as an appetizer-tender and delicious.
As we left the restaurant (around 9:30: they close at 9) a couple entered and were informed the restaurant was closed. We walked out the door to our car in the parking lot and were immediately approached asking if we were the people who wanted food—
The employee was searching for the couple so they could invite them back in for food!
Great food; great people; great place!!
The owners and staff were so friendly and great service. The food was amazing. Everything is fresh and made in house. We were very happy!
This is a new restaurant in the area according to the staff. From the moment you walk in the door, you feel like you are with family. The staff is very attentive, the owner happened to be on site and we chatted about how she started the restaurant. Kudos to them for being brave and opening a restaurant during the pandemic!!! The food is excellent, the desserts are homemade and the tables are spaced (and placed) so well that you do not hear the conversation at the next table. Overall, what a refreshing experience and a welcome change from our backyard grill!!! Thanks.
We had a lovely window table, a very attentive server, and a great meal at a good price. What more can you want?
I made a reservation at Balcony One after my hotel recommended it. From the moment I walked in I had a sense that this was going to something special. The hostess greeted me warmly and I was quickly seated. My server, Austin, promptly came to my table to take my drink order. I selected one of their signature cocktails which was well made and delicious. As I perused the menu, I was offered an amuse-bouche which was a delightful preview of what I had to look forward to. My server was very well-spoken and knowledgeable about the menu. There were so many fabulous choices on the menu. I settled on the Dino Rib, a Smoked Beef Rib served with Chili Nopales, corn cakes and a side of their house made apple-jalapeño BBQ sauce.
While I was enjoying my cocktail as my entrée was being prepared, the Pit Master, brought me an out-of-this-world sample of their bone-in-bacon. The GM came by to introduce himself as I was recovering from my transportive bone-in-bacon ecstasy. I also was introduced to the owner, George Rodinos, and was impressed by his friendly manner that conveyed the warm hospitality of what you might only expect at your best friend’s home. As the night went on, I realized that each member of the staff that I encountered demonstrated this same attitude of genuine warmth.
The atmosphere was trendy, yet cozy. Everywhere there were beautiful, handcrafted touches to the décor. This was a unique restaurant, not something out of a supply catalog. In addition, there were lots of original works of art by George’s wife, Cynthia, who I got to meet also.
Balcony One is a fabulous place for happy hour, a romantic dinner, or special occasion. Do yourself a favor and visit this lovely restaurant in Virgin, Utah. The service is unmatched. The staff genuinely cares about your experience. The food is amazing. Absolutely the best meal I had while on my month-long road trip. I am planning a return trip there soon. Balcony One is a must. I highly recommend it to you!
Food was decent, not great. Server was nice and friendly but forgot something I ordered. We ate here because we were staying close to Zion and many places were closed on Sunday. It was OK but wouldn't be my first choice.
A great place to celebrate any occasion. Food is excellent, service is top notch, the bar is amazing and the facility is awesome! The Ahi Tuna was cooked to perfection as were the ribeye and smoked “Dino” rib. Cocktails, wine and beer selection are beyond excellent thanks to the highly skilled, creative personable beverage manager. Sit at the bar or on the patio to experience awesome views of Zion Ntl Park.
Large portions. Food was prepared quickly. Server did not know a lot about the menu. She seemed new, but was pleasant
The funnest restaurant. Such good food. Very friendly staff and the owners are awesome.
We sat out on the patio which was quite and relaxing, We had the bone in bacon appetizer which was very good and the chef’s Sea bass special which was cooked to perfection. Didn’t try dessert but the looked incredible.
Totally unexpected based on location. Excellent in every way.
While RVing at Zion National Park we lucked out and found this wonderful restaurant near the Zion River RV Park. We are sooooo glad we decided to eat here. The food is absolutely fantastic. We started with the empanadas (a MUST) and the Wedge Salad. For our mains Allie had pasta bolognese and I went for the Dino Rib- a perfect smoked giant beef rib that fed me for two more meals! Some butter cake for dessert and were very satisfied customers. Congratulations to the husband and wife team who own the place- they are gracious and welcoming. George and Cynthia, thank you for the great food and hospitality.
Hidden gem in the Southern Utah. Surprisingly fresh ingredients and well prepared food. Excellent service. Amazing location but must seat in the right spot to enjoy the surrounding views.
We had a reservation, which was ready when we arrived.
Our server, Marcus offered suggestions, which we appreciate when trying a new restaurant, that were outstanding. The appetizers, the entrees and desert were first rate.
We will be back.
Food and service were excellent ! Best restaurant in Zion.
Service was horrible and food was marginal.
When the owner walked around offering a poor dead hunk of lamb that was being cooked in the middle of the parking lot , that really did us in ....
Would not recommend.
If you are in the Zion National Park area you must make a short trip from Springdale to this wonderful restaurant. Great food, reasonable prices and super friendly staff.
Fantastic food, great service, in a beautiful setting. I always like it when the owner comes by to check in on your experience, and the quality of the food and service reflects their commitment. Highly recommend.
Overall, one of the best restaurants in the Hurricane/ Zion area. We loved the “pig wing” we are big fans of offal and smart use of any edible parts of any animal. The ceviche tostada was fresh and delicious maybe a little under seasoned. The jicama, carrots, mango slaw was very good.
Our steaks were cooked as ordered and very high quality. The sides of brussels, baked potato, potato au gratin, asparagus were are properly prepared and very good.
Service was competent and pleasant and the food served surprisingly quickly.
My one knock is how loud the restaurant was. It was very busy.
Heard others extol the “Dino rib” entree - we will be back to give that a try!
We had fabulous salads for dinner. We had a spinach salad with chicken and a southwest salad with salmon. The salads were so fresh and the dressings and toppings were well-balanced. Delicious!!!
This was by far our favorite restaurant while staying in Zion. The food was amazing, service was great and the atmosphere was outstanding! Highly recommend going there
