I was very disappointed with the food - I think it is overpriced and was warm when it arrived. It was my anniversary and glad that the outside ambiance made up for the overpriced steak I had. I wish I had better comments and had high expectations.

From the time we checked in outside to the end of our dinner - excellent job handling social distancing and the new requirements. We felt very safe and loved the outdoor patio. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Thank you for making the cauliflower appetizer gluten free. Salmon special was divine. We look forward to coming again and truly appreciate the excellent care you are giving your guests.

Beautiful restaurant and ambiance we have enjoyed for over twenty years. The cauliflower app was amazing. The crab cakes were okay, but overpriced for two very small cakes. Filets were cooked perfectly, but had no wow factor. The halibut was slightly over cooked and had to much char. The tuna was the best entree by far. It was perfectly seasoned and seared. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Overall a nice evening and meal.

Even though there was limited service delivery for food items, the menu was incredible. I had the Bison Teres Major and my wife the Ahi Tuna. We started with the crab cakes which were spectacular, although only two in the $17 serving. Such a beautiful setting.

In this difficult time it was wonderful to get up to Log Haven, dine in those beautiful surroundings, all the tables were appropriately socially distanced, the menu was great, the food was wonderful, it was lovely to see Ian, Stephen and the staff. Only drawback was the amount of traffic trying to depart the canyon just as we were. Long line of back up cars.

We had a wonderful Sunday evening at Log Haven. From the moment we walked in, it was an incredible experience. Service was impeccable, ambiance beautiful and food delicious. We loved the alpine nachos and Korean fried cauliflower as starters. Our entrees consisted of the daily fish (New Zealand Sea Bass), salmon and ahi tuna. All were prepared perfectly. The salmon was just the right amount of spicy. We added mashed potatoes to the ahi. For dessert we shared the pineapple upside down cake, maple pot de creme and apple crisp with homemade vanilla ice cream. All perfectly ended our fantastic meal. We highly recommend Log Haven!

Everything was amazing...the only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars on the food was because my husband ordered the filet medium rare and it came out well done. However, all the food was exceptional and the other gentleman with us also ordered the filet and it was perfect.

Very nice evening in an enchanted atmosphere. Waiter was well versed on both the dinner menu and wine menu. The grouper with shrimp ravioli was particularly great. Valet service was down this night. Brought in clients from out of state, who were collectively stunned by the beauty of the setting. Of course we will go back.

This was the best dinner we have had in a long time. The waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. Food options were good and what we ordered was creative and delicious. The wine list was extensive but a little pricey for the SLC area.

We had a wonderful evening at Log Haven and it is one of our go spots when we are in SLC.
We both had the elk which was excellent and so tender as well as the lemon arugula salad which we split but we should have each gotten our own as is it is not an over-sized serving and we both loved it. Everything else was just what you would expect of special restaurant--service was outstanding, the ambience with the fire in the fireplace in a log structure and the two piece combo playing songs from the American songbook truly makes it for a memorable evening.
We look forward to returning next year when we are in the city.

Very good restaurant with outstanding service! Would have rated the food 5 stars other than the seared scallops were a bit overwhelmed by the sauce and the Domaine du Pegau Cuvée Reserve Chateuneuf-du-pape at $175 a bottle was marked up more than I was anticipating. I passed. On the other hand, I will dream fondly of the frozen coconut banana soufflé. Simply awesome!

The service was absolutely wonderful! Everyone was kind and helpful and respectful. It is a beautiful place. My husband and I went there as a celebration and were hoping for a little bit of a romantic evening. Though it is beautiful and comfortable, I was disappointed by how noisy it was in there. We were super hungry and my husband ordered the elk and I ordered the woked corn pasta - the only vegetarian option. The bread and cauliflower appetizer were amazing but the humus that was brought with the rolls was not good at all. The elk came next. The presentation was gorgeous but the elk was literally raw. My husband likes his meat medium to medium rare. But they did not ask him how he liked it and the elk came out almost purple it was so raw. The bacon wrapped around it was still white and slimy. He tried to be open about it eat it but lost his appetite after a few bites of eating uncooked meat. It looked seared. My pasta was okay. Nothing special. I liked the pasta from Olive Garden better than that and that’s not saying much. With the cost of that place, I expect really delicious food. We had to grab some hamburgers on the way home we were so hungry. Even though we didn’t complain, our waiter did notice we didn’t eat much of our meals and that the elk and bacon was uncooked, so he took the price of the elk off our ticket - which was very kind of him. Like I said, the service was outstanding. Too bad the food didn’t match.

What a beautiful place. I wish the food matched the ambiance of the location. The food wasn't bad. It was even good. But for what you pay for it, the food should be exceptional. It was not. It was just average at best. The dessert was NOT good. It was some frozen chocolate tart that tasted like something I would get at the frozen section of a supermarket. Its to bad because I would have liked to go back in the Summer when I could really see the grounds. But we won't be. I won't pay that much per plate for average (at best) food.
