It was disappointing. We have been coming to this restaurant for 20 years, but last night was a low point. While our waitress was outstanding, the gentleman at the front desk was surly and dismissive; later, when he came to refill our water glasses he spilled quite a bit on the table trying to fill my wife's glass, and never even acknowledged that he had done so, and certainly did not apologize.

The food was middling. My daughter's chicken was rather dry and a bit salty, and my filet was so-so. The appetizers were for the most part uninspired; the guacamole that came with the tuna tartare did not taste fresh, and the octopus was so-so. I have to say that the Korean cauliflower appetizer was outstanding.

Magical and delicious. We sat outside and there was quite a big rainstorm...that actually added to the already perfect ambiance. The nachos were so surprisingly fantastic too. Everything about this place is superb.

We were celebrating my husband’s birthday at the end of a road trip holiday that took us to the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, Monument Valley and Moab. We couldn’t have chosen a better restaurant for that. Log Haven is a beautiful “Alpine” building in the midst of a National Forest in the Millcreek Canyon.

The food was inventive, local and traditional. New American, if you want. Deserts were fantastic.

Our wonderful server was attentive but not intrusive.

You should consider going if in Salt Lake City.

Excellent experience! Crab cake apps were great, and generously filled with crab. Girlfriend's shrimp risotto was reported as excellent with massive shrimp. The halibut was the market fish of the night. It was very good and the shrimp dumplings that came along were incredible. Chocolate ganache did take some work getting the spoon through it. Service was very good, and the ambiance was world class. We dined outside with a piano player strategically placed where both outdoor and indoor diners could hear. Outstanding overall!

Incredible dining experience with a fantastic setting. From natural waterfalls cascading down within view of the seating to the cozy log cabin facility this place was a winner even before getting to the service and food. But , both the service and food options were also 5 star level. The halibut and bison entrees were fantastic and our appetizers also were terrific. Do not miss the Korean glazed cauliflower. It is worthy of a re-order. Trust me. Our server, Casey was knowledgeable, attentive and very personable. She pulled our experience altogether. Lastly, get the frozen coconut dessert. My wife, who doesn’t like coconut loves this dessert. This is a must go when in SLC.

Honestly this is one of my favorite Salt Lake restaurants….but the one thing that makes me a little crazy is charging for every glass of soda. No free refills here! It’s over $2 PER GLASS of Diet Coke! GOOD GRIEF!

We did decide to sit outside and left feeling disappointed. It’s just not the same as sitting inside. Lesson learned.

Alpine Nachos are amazing! Shrimp Risotto was good but really rich. Probably wouldn’t get it again but still enjoyable. Filet was AMAZING!!!!

New to Salt Lake City, we heard of this restaurant from our friends. We had high expectations going in. The experience from the greeting at the door, wait staff friendly and helpful with food and wine suggestions and writing down places in SLC to visit, to the food presentation then amazing enjoyment of the food, brought the experience far above our expectations. The beauty of Log Haven set in Nature is a spectacular place to be.

The good: The location is gorgeous. The server was excellent. The food was delish…

The disappointing: I had looked forward to a “splurge dinner”‘in an iconic location. It was laughable that they had to call out “water isn’t served automatically, because of the drought” It was so warm in there with no air flow., no way to enjoy a lovely meal when you’re that hot. I understand it was 100+ degrees outside, but it was literally cooler when we stepped outside. The table next to us was loud and there really wasn’t anything about our experience that would make me want to return again.

The location was outstanding especially during the summer. At least 13 degrees cooler up there than Salt Lake City. There is a waterfall and small park across the street that allows for guest parking.
Our server, Johnny was very friendly, courteous and very knowledgeable of the offerings at the restaurant. We ordered the dungeness crab cakes for appetizer and it was very good. I had the special fish (sea bass) and it was well prepared. However, the pork chop that my husband ordered was overcooked and it was dry. When we told Johnny, he immediately resolved the situation by offering an alternative. It was filet and it was melt in your mouth good. Overall the experience was very satisfying and will definitely come back for another celebration. It was our 42nd wedding anniversary.
