Every restaurant seems to have a mediocre night every now and then. This was that night. The kitchen let them down this time. The food was "average". I was expecting "great". I will try Christopher's Prime again in the future to see if tonight was just one of those nights.

Honestly picked this place because it was close to the hotel and not a chain (Ruths Chris is right across the street). So happy we went here. The food was amazing! Had the 8oz filet (perfectly cooked) and the brussel sprouts (the best i have ever had, I nearly ate the entire portion!).

Highly, Highly recommended.

Service was good. Food was absolutely mediocre at best. The reason I provided low scores was the high-end cost associated. Way overpriced for quality. Soggy lobster corn dog made almost inedible (like it was sitting too long or prepared way in advance). Steak was ok, but overpriced. Potatoes au gratin were cold in the middle.

I ordered the boneless ribeye and it was cooked subpar. I felt like I ordered a steak from Outback Steakhouse. The blue cheese crumbles were excessive and the meat was flavorless for supposedly being dry aged for 22 days. The corn pudding was amazing. My wife ordered a chicken meal and the plate presentation was average. Not what if’s expect for a $200 dinner.

Outstanding in every way! Our only issue was with the filet mignon - we both ordered it medium rare but my husband's was more medium and mine was more rare. For the price, I would expect the done-ness to be on point.

We had a perfectly cooked 30 oz Wagyu Tomahawk steak with grilled asparagus and truffle fries. The steak and sides were excellent! For desert we had a flour-less chocolate cake and cheese cake. They were both excellent. The staff was wonderful.

Such a positive experience!! Not only was it one of the best steaks of my life (and the appetizers were huge and to die for), but our server, Johnny, was incredible. Made us feel very welcome and had a bubbly personality that made me and my partner smile.

This place has a great atmosphere. It is inside one of the oldest hotels in Salt Lake. Very unique. The food was great, and so was the service.

Service, ambiance, and most of the food was outstanding. My only complaint was the value for the Tomahawk steak. Honestly, I'm picky about the cook on a steak and that was perfect, but the cut of meat left much to be desired. It was Wagu, which should be the tenderest cut of meat and this steak was tough and riddled with sinew - not marble, but sinew. I've had the tenderloin filet there and will only order that from now on.

The service was great and everyone was so attentive.I read the mixed reviews before going and the negative reviews were spot on. The halibut was flavorless and red pepper aioli took away from the potato chip crust. The cow boy cut rib eye was standard, I could have prepared it better at home. No plans on returning and not recommending to friends or family.

Other than the waitress being so fixed on events outside that she couldn’t listen to what we wanted, the experience was top shelf. Food was absolutely amazing and worth every dollar

Good tasting food and a great server in a nice peaceful atmosphere made for the special night that we were hoping for at Christopher's. Across the street parking made it easy to get in and out of the area. A nice place for a special occasion with friends and family.

A nice place for a fancy dinner! We went to celebrate a birthday, and the staff greeted us with birthday wishes and we received a free dessert. The calamari and the cheesecake with the raspberry reduction were excellent!

My NY strip first arrived as an excessive fatty ribeye, the Manager noticed as well and returned it. He took half of my asparagus that was also on my plate - I had ordered that as an additional side. The steak they brought me next was undercooked and flavorless. My asparagus was not replaced and my other side white cheddar mash potatoes were cold by then as well. My wife's dinner was pretty much ruined as well, while we waited for my entree.

The Manager and wait staff were fine, however I would not go there again or recommend them. I went here for the steak, not sure how any "chef" can misidentify or not cook a steak as spot on.

Terrible food for the most part. I was very surprised at this, especially for thier price point. Staff was pretty unfriendly, in the sense that they did not try to build rapport or any sort of relationship with us. They were there one second, then before we could ask one question or comment on what they just told us they were gone or already walking away from the table. Very awkward. Overall worst part was the food though. Don't waste your time on the appetizers (or cocktails for that matter) and be careful what you choose for a dinner entree. Get steak if anything. That was the most decent item we ate.

Total let down! Won't be going back

My only reason for giving it 4 stars instead of 5 was that my clam chowder was cold. I don’t complain or send stuff back, and we were there soon after opening, so maybe it just hadn’t heated up yet, but nevertheless, it was cold

We went to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We were never asked if we were celebrating a special occasion, which surprised me considering where we chose to go in the middle of the week. We felt ignored by our server. We almost felt like we spent more time waiting for food than eating it. We were served significantly more frequently by other waiters and support staff than we were by our own waiter. The food was good but didn’t seem to us to deserve the prices they were asking (and we have been places with similarly priced food where we did feel the prices were warranted). The only dishes we felt were worth the prices asked were the sautéed mushrooms and the crème brûlée. Will not be recommending this place to any friends or acquaintances.

Service was great. Have not had a bad meal there. Steak temperature is always spot on. This trip the onion rings were a bit of a miss very doughy and a touch undercooked.

I ordered the 80 day dry aged tomahawk. (I have bad 45 day, 60 day, 85 day and even 229 day aged steaks) this steak did not appear to be dry aged beyond the standard 28-35 days. As there were none of the dry aged notes (earth, blue cheese). So that was a bit of a bummer. Steak was prepared well but priced as a 80day dry age is the reason for loss of a star.

An ordinary steakhouse. Prime fillet was fine. The rest was nothing special.
