    Overall our service was pretty good. All four of us dining thought the food was pretty average. Our biggest complaint is the pricing. They have a long way to go to be a 5-star restaurant so why do they charge 5-star pricing? On the plus side, it is nice to have a full bar in Utah County!!

    The food was superb! Dislikes:  the hostess was very disappointing. She tried to shame me over the phone for being late and stress that she may be able to work things out for us to come in. When we got there, she shamed me again with her attitude and the thought that I fixed it for you so now you can eat the full meal.  She was dressed in a wife beater tank top to show off her muscles and had the attitude to go with it. Not the friendly presentation I had hoped for from a female Hostess at a nice restaurant, as I spent $175 on a meal for two people including tip. The waitress would’ve had a much larger tip if it wasn’t for the hostess, excreting her perceived power by trying to make us feel like we are doing her a favor. I recognize my part in thinking our reservation was at a different time and I apologized for that over the phone. If there was a problem, I would’ve been fine going somewhere else.   Note to Block:  avoid shaming your customers with a double message.  A different hostess would have made all the difference. Zero Stars ⭐️ Again the food was outstanding obviously prepared by a talented Chef. 5 Stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Valentine’s Day menu was delicious! Beet salad was fantastic, and I enjoyed the salmon very much. The ambiance is not incredibly fancy, but I received great food and great service.

    It seemed that the kitchen was not prepared for a busy Valentines crowd. Took an hour to get the main course after the salad. The Salmon was under cooked and dry. Expected better. Waiter comped the dessert to make up for the delay. Will try one more time to see if we have a better experience.

    Food was good but limited. Example the salad has 1 dressing and 1 dressing only. We had to suggest they put it on the side in case we did not like it because they said the dressing was spicy. Portions are medium sized.

    Overall we enjoyed our experience but having lived in multiple parts in the US I’m not sure the quality was completely worth the price. It was close but in my opinion just a pinch on the high side for a restaurant in Provo.

    Brunch was disappointing. Bloody Mary was all pickle juice and pepper, and they didn't give us bacon in it. Eggs Benedict was dry, over cooked eggs, over toasted muffin, minimal ham, had to ask for more hollandaise which they charged me $2 for 2 tablespoons. Hollandaise was not nearly as good as the last time we were there. Over salted, over lemoned. Rosemary fries seemed ok at first, but after two fries the salt was way too much!!

    Block is a good restaurant: nice atmosphere and excellent food. I underline the point about the food: it's very good and stands well above the average fare in the region. Pro tip: if you are a two-person party, ask to avoid the tables that are in the middle of the room.

    Ventured down to Provo to see a play and ate hear before hand, since it has one of the better reputations for restaurants in Utah County. Service was sub-par and slow. Our waitress, Callie, essentially ignored us. My food came out a full 10 minutes after the rest of our party's food did. I had the eggs benedict and I wouldn't recommend it. By the time I got it, it was cold, the English muffin was hard, and nothing special at all. Everyone else's meals were pretty good; my benedict was the worst, by far, of all the meals. We had to ask for our check from another server after 30 minutes sitting there finished with our food. Had to ask three times for a box for my daughter's food to go. Wouldn't go back.

    It’s a very good restaurant. But the prices are too high for the location and to some degree even the food. Don’t get me wrong. Food is great but it’s not $35+ on every meal. I don’t expect to pay $55 for a hangar steak in a strip mall.

    I ordered the wedge salad. I had to cut the very end off myself. Why would you serve lettuce with the end core piece still on? The dressing had hot sauce in it. I hate spice. Why would you add hot sauce to a wedge salad dressing? We also ordered the ox tail. It was pretty good, but super salty. We did enjoy the side dishes that were in the ox tail order. We were sitting right under the speaker and had to ask to turn it down; the music was too loud. Also not the kind of music that goes with the atmosphere of the restaurant. Overall, too pricey, too salty, and too spicy.

    Asked for a side of not crispy bacon. What was served was not editable. If someone would have touched it, it would have crumbled. Waited for 20 min to order, waited 49 mins to get food. Food came out in weird phases, not everyone had their food at the same time.

    Highly reviewed, so I was eager to try Block but it was a very disappointing experience. The ambiance is 1960's country from the shiny wood paneling to the hard backed chairs. The food is downscale Denny's-esque and the service is eager but inexperienced. They have espresso cocktails but no espresso drinks because "oh, that's from the bar". My breakfast was eggs on a hamburger with bacon on a bun with french fries. That's from the brunch menu. Never again.

    My husband and I have never tried The Block. We are pretty picky eaters, but The Block did not disappoint! The pairing of ingredients exceeded our expectations! It was impressive to watch how well coordinated the hostess, our waiter, and the kitchen staff was. They made it so our appetizers, main meal, and desert was timed perfectly

    Delicious brunch experience, be sure to order a pancake for the table to share. Eggs Benedict were absolutely perfect and the Block hash bowl was fresh, delicious and unique. Highly recommend if you’re in the Provo area.
