I had the mac and cheese special and I thought it was delish but I was expecting it to have more meat/ a larger portion size. I wasn't totally full afterwards

Was pleasantly surprised with Block! Very good restaurant, creative menu that is very well executed. The ingredients are locally sourced and menus changes with the seasons.

Excited to come back with the next menu!

Staff isn’t wearing masks after Utah lifted its mask mandate. I’ll let you decide if that’s a plus or a minus to you!

What a pleasant surprise and great find!

We found this place on Open Table, and since we love trying new restaurants, we gave this place a shot for my wife's birthday this week.

GREAT choice!

The food is fresh and well prepared. The flavors are amazing, with complimenting ingredients that create that unique 'pop' when done right.

We had a special appetizer, grilled scallops on a carrot based purée. The only complaint was that there were only three scallops. Too good to limit to just 3 :)

My wife ordered the Block Wedge Salad and the Howse Made Potato Gnocchi with braised short ribs. The salad dressing had just a bit of kick to it that added a nice dimension to a traditional dish. The pickled red onion and bacon chunks were a perfect match. The Gnocchi was like eating Sunday Roast at home with mom, in every bite. AMAZING!

I had the Beets Salad and the Clifford Farms Pork Loin. The combination of roasted and pickled beets were fantastic. Not what I would have chosen myself, (I let the server choose my meal), but it was a great selection. Wonderfully surprised. The Pork Loin was very different than my wife' gnocchi. The gnocchi is the definition of comfort food with its rich flavors, while my Pork Loin exploded with a light and herb based pallet. The Pork Loin had a ton of flavors to enjoy. The pea farro and the pesto added whole new dimensions to the pork.

Reasonably priced, this was a great find for the value!

We will be back...and with friends!!

The service was fantastic. From the moment we were greeted until the table was cleared we received welcome, knowledgeable, attentive service. The asparagus bruschetta was a work of art. The beet salad was amazing. Both the owner Erica and our waiter recommended the pork. Two others at our table also had the pork, and their servings seemed fine, but mine was quite fatty - I had to carve a fair amount off. We skipped dessert because we were all full, but I would like to return and try the sweets.

Stopped in on a whim, and so glad we did. The food was very good, the service was excellent. We had a pork carnitas burrito, and mushroom lettuce wraps, which sound boring but had the most awesome flavor! Very different, fresh, perfect for lunch. Can't wait to return.

All our food — appetizer, salad, entrees, and dessert — were delicious. Portion sizes were just right, and the presentation excellent. The service was attentive and appropriate, though whomever does the hiring apparently has a soft spot for the heavily-tattooed. No shade on the severs, though, who brought us a card for our anniversary that all the staff signed. Wonderful experience! We’ll definitely return.

From the moment we took our first bites, my boyfriend and I could not stop raving about the food. The pear mimosas were outstanding—beautiful pear flavor with the kiss of bubbly champagne. The French toast was a true delicacy, tender and doused in Block’s very own Unicorn Syrup—which I would gladly take a bullet for a vat of—and topped with truly perfected whipped cream. Their steaktip poutine gave me the strength to endure another day of the living nightmare that is life. The steak tips fell to pieces at the prodding of my fork. The yolk of the sunny-side up egg that topped the dish glistened as it ran down the sides of crisp potatoes smothered in mozzarella and Chile verde sauce. Anytime I go out to eat it will be at this restaurant. Put me down for a reservation every night, Block restaurant. I vow that the staff will know me by name by the end of the month.

The Block. I often describe it as Sundance's Tree Room, closer in town and a price value. But all of the quality.

Block Restaurant is a nice place to sit down and have delicious food. I had the Block Burger after reading an article about the top 11 best burgers in Utah Valley. The block burger was # 1 in the article and I have to say that it was amazing and well worth the $16.50 I paid for it. I will definitely be returning.

I took my sister out for her birthday brunch at Block Restaurant and it was phenomenal. The art and furnishings created a cozy and comfortable atmosphere. The beverage menu was unique and the coffee and tea options were delicious. The food was 1000/10. The flavors are well thought out for each entree and the staff made excellent recommendations. This restaurant is now in our top 10 favorites in Utah. Definitely visit this spot if you love farm to table!

Excellent food and service. This is our new "special occasion" place. They could use a little more space and be able to put people farther from the door to get the ambiance a place of this quality should really have. But that's such a minor thing compared to how great the overall experience is that is really being nitpicky to say it. Spoke to the owner briefly after watching her watch over every aspect of the place. She's clearly invested and it shows in the details.

We love eating at the Block Restaurant, and are always so excited to go back there. Every time we have eaten there they have been very good about social distancing and wearing masks. This time however, the restaurant was packed and we were sat not even two feet away from the table next to us. The hostess that greeted us as we entered was wearing her mask around her neck, and various guests came in without any kind of mask on whatsoever.

As much as we love the food here, we don't really feel comfortable eating there due to the current world pandemic. I'm very disappointed in the lack of care or respect for the health and safety of the employees and customers.
