    We love the setting and the vibe you get there. I'm from Idaho and when we come to Utah I feel the need to relax at La Jolla. The food was delicious but the thing that keeps us coming back is the service. We were given an amazing cheese setting and a little sample of their lemonade at no extra charge. They understand how to treat their customers.

    Food was phenomenal and the service was outstanding. They were busy for Valentine’s Day so the wait was a little bit longer but the service and atmosphere made up for it. I think our waiters name was Tanner, I can’t remember for sure he was from Morgan Utah he was so good!!!

    I made a reservation, and paid for the reservation for 8:30pm, we weren’t seated until 9:05. The food took a while to come out and it was a little warmer than room temperature. For $110 for an app & two entrees I would hope for better. We didn’t get out of there until 10:30. I understand it’s valentine’s day however I felt that was a bit unacceptable. Our waiter however was fantastic and did everything he could do to make a positive experience. Some things were just out of his control.

    Delicious food, excellent waitress, but upset that my reservation was at 8:15p, we arrived early but still weren’t seated until 9p. Had to wait in the cold outside because it was packed near the front.

    On Valentine’s Day, we were required to pay a deposit for the reservation, which was understandable. However, even with that, we had to wait 50 minutes past our reservation time. Once we got to the table, our server Angie and the rest of the servers were amazing. They get 5 stars. Management gets -3 stars for fumbling the nights service. They knew how many people had reservations. It seemed like the backlog was with the kitchen, as it took forever to get our food. The table next to us complained about it also.

    Pretty Disappointing! I called the restaurant almost a month in advance to make sure that the reservation time at 5:45 would be solid since we needed to be at an event right after. She assured me that even on Valentines Day that would not be an issue for that time and that if i had a reservation that i would get right in. We showed up a few minutes before 5:45 and were told it was going to be at least a 30 min delay. Also looked like there were quite a few tables without food, so who knows how long it would be after seated. That would not work for us, sitting and waiting at a restaurant (which would have been outside in the weather since there were people waiting all over) was not our idea of an evening. Also noticed today that some of the menu prices yesterday were jacked up for Valentines compared to the day after menu. Nice. I will be calling to get my $10 reservation fee returned. No interest in going back.

    Running behind by 30 minutes to be sat for a reservation. Sat for a few minutes when were were greeted (not too bad). 10 minutes later our server showed up. We were ready to order and did at that time. Our Sour (best part of the meal) showed up in a few minutes. Our main dish took 1 hour and 15 minutes to make it out. I ordered the Lemon Chicken that I have had before. This portion was so small. I think there were some mashed potatoes (maybe 3-4 bites worth) and very little sauce. There were also 2 baby carrots that were cut in half. My wife had the Tortellini. The first one we sent back. The pasta was not fully cooked and the filling was still grainy. There was not much flavor to the dish. I think the best part was the Arugula on top. I know were were there for Valentines day, but being there for a total of 2 hours and 20 minutes for a mediocre meal is not a great way to spend that day.

    What a disaster. We waited for our food for one hour and a half 😵‍💫😑👎🏽 someone definitely needs to work on the logistics for days with a busier turnout. The "experience" fee was not worth waiting so long for our meals. Ended up having to cancel our salads because our other two friend's entrees arrived before. It was a complete circus! Me and my friends have supported this restaurant throughout the years, but I am seriously questioning if I even want to ever go back. To offer a measly appetizer as an apology is confirmation that they don't understand good customer service, and how important it is to make things right for their patrons.

    We have always loved coming here but on Valentines Day the kitchen was so slow and we were served cold food after waiting 45 min. The servers didn’t know what tables went where. We were asked multiple times if we had this entree that wasn’t ours. I am only writing this review because I know you can do better and I love this restaurant. Our server was so sweet and felt horrible that we had cold food.

    I'm going to break this review down in four categories: Ambience, Service, Food quality and Value.  Ambience: Warm, romantic, a year round summer time feel. Perfect for a date night. Service: Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable of the menu, and an overall excellent server. As far as the pace of service is concerned, the kitchen took nearly an hour to put out our appetizer. We waited another 20 minutes before our soup and salad arrived (which should have been served as separate courses but were served together), almost immediately after finishing our soup/salad we were served entrées. There should be a short pause between each course (allowing time to reset your pallet). Timing of courses is very important to the dining experience. La Jolla Groves kitchen staff gets an F on their timing. Food Quality: Course 1"Starter"-Bruschetta was delicious! A perfect balance of crunchy, creamy, sweet, salty, acidic, herbaceous and extremely fresh. Course 2 "Soup"-Butternut Squash was the best soup/bisque I've ever eaten. If I had to pick a "last meal" this would be it. Trying to describe the flavor of this beautiful silky emulsion with it's contrast of roasted pepitas sprinkled liberally on top... I lack words. Course 3"Salad"(which was unfortunately served in conjunction with course two)- Petite Maple Pecan Salad was underdressed therefore making it bland. I did however appreciate the juicy, plump, perfectly ripe berries. Course 4 "Entrée"- Salmon with asparagus, rice, and cilantro lemon buerre blanc was disappointing. I have a feeling it set under a heat lamp because the fish was dry and the rice had soaked up most of the sauce causing an unappetizing, mushy texture. The asparagus was not seasoned and the overall entree was underwhelming. Value: Despite the inviting ambience and my love affair with the starter course and soup course, the overall meal left a lot to be desired. Therefore making the cost outweigh the expectation.

    Everything was almost perfect. The only thing that was a little worse than expected was the lemon chicken entree. It was pretty tough and difficult to chew. I figured it would be more tender.

    We paid $150 for dinner and immediately as we left we said to eachother "We could have had a better experience for $50." I had to send my fish back to be recooked and my wife didn't eat her appetizer. It wasn't terrible, but we aren't planning on going back for a while, if ever.

    We had no idea of the final cost of this "chef's dinner series". We thought it was more of a taste experience with smaller portions. It would be appropriate to let the customers know before hand how much it's going to be. At first It felt like bait and switch but the food was delicious and the attention was awesome so can't complain too much about it.

    For the price not worth it. It was my wife's birthday. I sold her on this place by telling her how good the food was. The appetizers were just ok. We waited for over one half of one hour between our soups and salads and the entree. Our filet mignon were cold. Our Samon was cold. I paid a good sum for cold food. Would not recommend.

    The service La Jolla Groves was probably among the worst I have encountered at a restaurant of this caliber. After having been seated and our order taken the waitress never returned for 50 minutes. The table next to us received their salads prior to us and they were seated 15-20 minutes after us. I could not get our waitress attention no matter what I tried. Finally the assistant waitress attempted to clear my bread plate and I enquired as to what happened to our salads and soup we had ordered? At that point 45 minutes prior. She sated she didn’t know but our entrees were coming up. I asked her to rush our salad and soup and also for a refill on my soda. At the 50 minute point our salad and soup arrived. Five minutes later while still eating soup and salad the entrees were shoved onto our small two place table with no room for them really. Oh and my glass and soda was still missing after requesting a refill 15 minutes prior! Of course we knew why our meals were brought on top of the first course— they were cold!! The steak was cold, potatoes were cold etc. Most likely they were plated a long time ago and were sitting cooling off. My drink did finally show up. Our waitress only showed up at the end of the evening to present the check. I almost forgot, while still finishing the meal, the assistant removed my poor drink before I was finished with it! This place has a long way to go if it wants to be in the same class with other local restaurants that charge in the same price range. Like train the wait staff to be attentive and not serve ice cold food!

    This restaurant is perfect for very special occasion dinners. The table presentation was superb! The service was beyond exemplary. I wish I could eat this well every day. We had a large group and yet everyone's needs were met in such a kind, positive, and professional manner. The staff here is well trained. This in definitely not your run-of-the-mill restaurant. It's got the ambiance, decor, and feel of an upscale NYC restaurant. Very nice. Highly recommend.

I have to have gluten free food - and there were multiple options and the staff seemed to be careful to ensure my food was safe. Overall - had a great dinner out with friends.

    New Year’s Eve dinner. Great menu options, wasn’t too busy so easy to talk in our party. Our server, Summer, was very pleasant and engaging. Kitchen offered a few surprise food items for the diners. Very nice experience. Pricey.
