Our Waitress was amazing! She explained everything very well and made it sound wonderful. The food was delicious, even better than she described. Highly recommend this place, it’s a hidden gem that needs to be found by more people.

I love Block! Excellent Sunday brunch. The live music is amazing but a little loud so hard to hear conversation. Overall the food and service were tops and I will definitely be back!

We were surprised such a wonderful cuisine and menu was available in Provo. I would compare the fate to any of the finest restaurants I’ve dined at in NYC, Chicago and San Francisco. The presentation of the food was beautiful and it was a 100% all in all experience. I posted it on my Facebook Page. It should be in a better location; up on Traverse Mtn? Thx Giv Point? It’s a secret that needs to be shared. We’ll be back. We had the pork belly, the wedge salad, the butternut salad and the New York strip; both cooked to perfection. Oh and the chocolate cake! Devine! THANK YOU Block!

There is no better place in Utah County. We come easily 2 times a month at least for dinner or brunch. Friendly helpful staff, amazing food and a cocktail and drink menu that is always fresh.

I'm a usual at Block, and I always love the place, the people, and the food. But Saturday was by far the best experience at a restaurant I've ever had. There were 3 of us that stopped in for a friends birthday. We arrived at 12:45 and there was very surprisingly only one other table being used at the time. I've never seen it so quiet. Due to this, our server was so attentive, thoughtful, and went above and beyond! I wish I had asked for his name to include that in this review. Not only did he totally stay on top of drinks, and got all of our orders correct, he also brought out a free dessert for the birthday girl, chimed in on nicknames, and brought a handwritten birthday card from the staff to my friend at the end of our trip. I'm still just blown away by the whole experience.

As far as food goes- you cannot go wrong with their avocado toast+bacon, and a drip coffee. I order it every time. They brew really good coffee. One of my friends got the burger, and I can't wait to go back and order that myself. As well, they brought out their chocolate cake, and it was beyond any of my expectations. I can't believe I've never gotten dessert here.

All and all, great experience and can't wait to go back!

I absolutely LOVE Block. Their service is fantastic, their menu is amazing, I’ve never had anything their that I didn’t love. I often go for brunch on Sundays with girlfriends and we love the atmosphere, could stay there all day. Also a great drink menu! That caramel apple mule? DAYUM.

Bambi and Thumper were delicious! I had their rabbit parpadelle and my date had the venison. Both were perfectly cooked and seasoned. Service was impeccable; attentive but not overly done. It had a nice hole in the wall feel (in a good way), and was quite a find. It was a great experience and I'll definitely be back!

Great experience! I especially loved the charcuterie board. Went with my husband for my birthday, and they gave us a popcorn panna cotta on the house (delicious!) and a birthday card signed by all the employees. Would definitely come again and recommend to others.

I loooved the music. So many places play not just annoying music but play the music so loud you have to shout to have a conversation. I usually either leave with a headache or have to ask for it to be turned down. But not here. The music was pleasant and fun. We enjoyed listening to the cook sing while he worked as well, though I’m not sure he knew we were listening. Our waitress was awesome, the atmosphere warm, and the food crazy good. Definitely one of my places now. And prices are great.

We live in Alaska but have needed to visit Provo three times this past year. EVERY SINGLE TIME we have visited Block we have had a stellar experience! Not only is it completely charming and hip, the menu is interesting with some unique ideas and food pairings. The food is noticeably fresh which means they live their mission. BUT! Let me tell you about their service! These guys are hustlers and make sure you are completely taken care of. We had a little snafu on our first trip and they not only made it right, but went beyond that to more-than make up for the issue. That awesome customer service experience alone sealed the deal that we would return; the fact that I had one of the BEST eggs Benedict and avocado toast I have ever had was a complete bonus! HA. Not in a rush to go to Provo, but I daydream about that dang restaurant. See you guys soon!

If you have not been to Block yet there is something wrong with you! Haha. (But seriously) I have dined at Block many times and each time it has been such a positive and delicious experience. The food is great, particularly their brunch menu and their wine menu. The owner is always there working hard alongside her employees, and the staff is so attentive and kind. I recommend Block to anyone and everyone! 110%

The service was excellent. They went above and beyond for my wife's birthday.

The appetizers were amazing! I would have been 100% satisfied with just ordering a few appetizers.

The main course was good, but not excellent. I had the rabbit, which was okay, but could have used a little more sauce. And many of the noodles were stuck together, as if they were not stirred when cooked. The noodles seem to be uncut lasagna pasta. They would have been better if they were shorter. Cutting them myself was a bit awkward because of the way the dish was served. It may have been better if I mixed the whole thing up, right off the bat, and then dealt with the noodles. My wife's entree (chicken) was much better.

Overall, I would say to give them a chance. We spent about $100 for two appetizers, two entrées, one dessert, and a tip.

The only reason there’s noise is because in Sunday’s for brunch there’s a live singer and it’s amazing. It’s the best atmosphere and the yummiest food. I have the hardest time choosing what to order because I know what I LOVE but I also want to try new things, because EVERYTHING is good. Sunday brunch is my favorite but the evening dinner is amazing.

I am really glad this wasn't our first experience at Block. I love the owner, the food and most of the servers know my husband and I by name. I think it was an off night with the hostess. She was pretty rude and unaccommodating. I'd also love to see a couple kid friendly options on the menu. We don't usually have our kids with us when we go for dinner, but this night we did.

I was very pleasantly surprised by this place. It has become my favorite restaurant in Utah county. I was a bit hesitant due to the location, as it seems it is more fitting for a local business rather than a restaurant, but the food and the experience proved me wrong. I loved the food selection, how each plate was presented and plated, and the assortment of flavors. Love this place!

This is a nice effort, but didn't succeed in several key ways. Portions are quite small, especially where a few more vegetables would fill you up or the charcuterie board is meant to be shared. Despite the appetizers and main dish, we would've left hungry if not for the dessert course. (Oddly, the chocolate cake is enormous.) Creativity/presentation was given priority over ease of eating and taste in a few instances (cheesecake in a jar ends up watery from the strawberries and hard to navigate). Pork chops overcooked and not very exciting. Between the four of our meals, the highlights were the butternut soup and the popcorn panna cotta.
