Not your typical Christophers with it combined with Sonoma Grill. It definitely takes the entire steakhouse down a notch. Food was more rustic than it has been in the past and the sear on the steaks gave them a crust making them a tad dry. Cross the street and go to Ruths Chris where you can enjoy elevated service, a 5 star meal, and more enjoyable evening all around.

Terrible steak. We both got sick. Server said that they only had balsamic butter for bread. Had to call on manager for assistance. The only thing good about the place was the manager. It was dirty, it smelled and the food was almost inedible.

Ribs were cooked to death. Steak was not prime. Disappointing! Not near the valve for the price.

Good Afternoon, 1st of all i'm so sorry your visit to Christopher's was less than satisfactory. We strive to provide the very best quality service, food and atmosphere possible. Apparently on this occasion we missed the mark, i have passed along your feedback re ribs. As far as steaks are concerned we use nothing but USDA Prime, if you would care to verify this yourself feel free to contact me and i'll personally show you the labels. We value you as a guest and your feedback. Michael

Unfortunately, the food was subpar. The steak was ok, but the potatoes were not even edible due to an obscene amount of garlic. Our server was very nice but apparently there was not a single person in the restaurant knowledgeable about the expensive wine list. I can say we would not need to eat there again.

Food was cool not hot.

Wine was served at room temp (Cabernet)

Seasonings overpowered veggies and lobster tail.

Lobster was to share amongst 4 people. Arrived whole.

Overall it was a great experience. Decor was a hodge podge and seemed a little all over the place but very clean and warm. The staff was friendly and professional. The Kings Crown was divine! I’d come back just for that but I wanted to try the entire menu.

We made this reservation weeks in advance and were looking forward to this meal as we have been at Christophers old location many times. When we arrived the host was very rude. The atmosphere is ordinary compared to the former location and other options in Salt Lake. The food was mediocre at best. I ordered the kings crown. The steak was good but noT better than anywhere else and the “crab cake” was undercooked slop dropped on top of the steak. I had to scrape it off the steak it was so bad.
We ordered an appetizer, salad and main course. While working on the appetizer, the salad was delivered. While still working on the salad, the main course was delivered. Plates scattered over the table is not expected from a meal as costly as Christopher’s. I made the comment to my husband ,”I think they want us to leave as they’re rushing us through the meal.”
The meal was $185 before the tip and definitely NOT worth the cost.
The server was very friendly and suggested alternatives.
Total time we were at Christopher’s was only 45 minutes. This was not a meal worthy the $185 cost and we won’t be back.

This last time unfortunlately was not as good. When you pay 70$ per dish expectations are higher and they were not met this time. Steaks were good, but fries were soggy. Our food took 50 minutes to arrive from when we ordered it. Our sever did not bring one of our sides but we were charged for it. Overall we had a better experience on previous visits.

It was a very nice atmosphere, kind of quiet as we were hoping for.
The food was great! Salmon was cooked perfect and the sauce was to die for, the garlic mashed potatoes were very good as well as the roasted brussel sprouts.
Go there again in a heart beat!

Skip it. Low quality food at premium prices. This place is trying to be something that it isn’t. I routinely get better quality filet at Longhorn Steakhouse for a fraction of the price

I'm so sorry to hear your opinion about our food quality. I'd really like to hear more about your visit, especially which items you felt weren't up to par. We pride ourselves in only using the very highest ingredients. All of our beef is USDA Prime or Wagyu; our chicken is all-natural Mary's chicken from Petaluma, CA and our pork is Duroc certified out of Idaho. Please take a minute to let us know so we have the opportunity to make it right.

Waitress was awesome. General manager was pretty cool. Hostess was not good. Terrible way to make a first impression. 1 of three steaks was overcooked, rib starter was great. Believe it or not, they can actually make brussel sprouts taste good, it was probably the best thing we ate. Overall it was satisfactory, but with the hostess ruining the situation within 30 seconds, its hard to sit and stare across the street and see a Ruths Chris location literally taunting you.
