We travel to Provo quite a bit to visit our daughter so we are so happy to find this unique restaurant. We loved the vibe, the service was excellent, drinks were hand-crafted and unique, and the food was great. We will definitely be back!

They seemed a little short handed when we visited. Services was a little slow but we weren't in too much of a hurry so it wasn't a big deal. Ribeye steak was surprisingly creative and absolutely delicious. My wive had the trout, and was not disappointed. We'll definitely be back.

This is the first time I have tried this restaurant and I have looked for a fine dining restaurant in Utah County for a long time.
I was very pleased with my experience this evening. The service was outstanding! Very attentive yet not intruding.
The food was also excellent. I had the ribeye as did most of our table and everyone very much enjoyed it.
I would highly recommend this restaurant for a nice occasion.

We love Block. Live music on Sunday’s is awesome. My only suggestion would be to turn it down five notches. If you are sitting close by the music you cannot have a conversation at your table without raising voice and leaning in. Brunch is great.

Incredible food and lovely service. All the dishes were unique and every aspect of the dish was delicious in its own, and even better combined together. The ambiance was chill, but nice. The servers were all very personable, helpful with their recommendations, passionate about food and the restaurant, and they added to the overall experience. We will definitely be back.

I went in for dinner with a reservation and was seated right away. It was very busy, but we ordered wine and the soup as soon as the server came. There was quite a delay in getting the wine and the soup didn't come after 30 mins. The server brought out a salad to eat while we were waiting. At some point we ordered our entrees (ribeye and pork loin). Finally the soup came, it was amazing. At about 1 hr 45 mins I was walking back to tell the server to just bring us the check as we were done waiting. I met her as she was walking back with the food, so we decided to stay and eat. The ribeye, while well seasoned, was one of the worst cuts I've ever had at a restaurant. It was nearly half fat and a couple of very chewy spots. I ate about 1/2 and gave up. The pork was cool and over cooked. The server offered to comp an entree due to poor experience. I very clearly told her not to do this, I wasn't there for a free meal. I also told her that I understood it was not her fault. She comped part despite what I said and we paid, leaving a normal tip. (~30% of comped price and ~18% of what the meal would have been).

We decided to give brunch a chance and gave my name. Within mins I was approached by someone I'm assuming to be the owner. I thought she was coming over to apologize. That was not to be - instead in front of all the guests waiting, she told me that my treatment of her staff was unacceptable. I was shocked and confused and asked for clarification; she told me it was reported to her that I had cussed at her manager. I assure you that I didn't. I don't even know who the manager was and the only person that talked to us the entire night was the server. I'm not afraid or shy in the slightest to cuss. I'm also a very blunt and honest person, if I had cussed, I would have zero regrets and not be ashamed to admit it. I didn't cuss at the server - I was a waiter once and know how it goes. Your staff are liars and I will be going out of my way to tell my story about Block

I apologize for your experience on Friday night. It was no where near the standard that we try to uphold.The reason I told you that you were not welcome in my restaurant was because of the way in which you behaved to my staff. I was told by three different employees about the offensive language you used toward your server. You had spoke to her in a manner that had not only brought her to tears but had also interrupted the experiences of the tables around you.

What a treat to find a true, gourmet, farm-to-table restaurant while visiting Provo!
From the casual/chic decor to the attentive service, Block was outstanding in every way (and we are sophisticated New York diners).
Don’t miss the delicious butternut squash soup, or the creatively prepared prime rib. My husband said his Moscow Mule was the best he’d had in a long time.
Erika, the owner, is a delight.

The food is so good that it is only diminished by the long waits from being seated, even with a reservation, to having the order taken, to getting water refilled, to even getting the check. This is not a large space. I would only ever go again if I knew I could get in and out in under and hour.

We thoroughly enjoyed everything. Food, cocktails, appetizers, etc. the only downside was the seating. We were so close to our neighbors we couldn’t help but hear them beating up on their fellow church members. It was distracting but not a deal breaker. I would recommend this place and have for anyone in Salt Lake or Utah counties.

The food was great but just too pricey for us. We think your business would boom if you would just lower the prices and include bread and house salad with the meal. I am fine to pay a couple dollars more for the wedge salad but we just really would have liked some bread while we were waiting for our meal and with it. It would be nice to have the entree's in the $15 to $20 dollar range and $$25 max for your high end items. We really can't afford to come back except for the soup which was incredible. In fact 2 of my guest only ordered soup and salad as the entree's were so expensive and it was my birthday so they let me order one of the cheapest entree's on the menu that was not an appetizer or the soup. My birthday cake was the bomb. We would for sure come back if we could afford it.
