Located atop beautiful Suncrest with sweeping views of the Wasatch Range, our warm and open architecture makes Ridge Cafe one of the best restaurants in Utah.

The cornerstone of Ridge Cafe is our authentic Stefano Ferrara brick pizza oven which creates delicious, artisan, award-winning pizzas in seconds and offers a flavorful smoky finish to our steaks, seafood and chicken. Handcrafted in Naples, and formed with clay from Italy’s Sorrento region, this eye-catching, copper-tiled oven cooks the best pizza!

We also offer sandwiches, salads, pastas, a full bar, happy hour, nightly specials and sumptuous desserts!

Service was stellar. I’d go back any day for the food. The view from the parking lot of the Salt Lake Valley is spectacular. Too bad it’s not as good from the restaurant. Seating was casual but comfortable (booths and square tables). Overall a good experience and we will definitely return.

The food was amazing!! The pizza and the Italian sandwich was amazing! Best sweet potato fries we have eaten as well. The waiter so nice and attended to us often. Although we would have loved to be outdoors, we were tucked away in the corner and there was only one other table. Overall , highly recommend!!

I’ve never been to the Ridge Cafe so I was excited to try. Overall it was a good experience. The setting was warm and inviting, plus you can see the entire Salt Lake Valley as you drive up to the restaurant. Our waitress was nice, not as familiar as I would have expected with the menu but overall nice. Our appetizer and main course were good enough that I would go again, especially in the summer, to try something else. The dessert was amazing! Totally had enough to take home and eat for breakfast too! I would recommend the Ridge Cafe.

The food is vastly overpriced for the quality. The service was great and Javier was very accommodating but the food was all super bland. We had a pasta dish, the meatballs small plate, and the Ridge Burger. The greatest part of the meal was the sweet potato fries with fry sauce. That's it. We won't be returning as there are just way better tasting food for better price. We had high expectations and this just come anywhere close.

Love The Ridge. It was not the great experience that we’ve had in the past. All tables are now open and it was VERY noisy. The pizza had great flavor but was cold. The burger and fries were delicious. The server was good.

Thanks for the feedback Nana! We still aren't utilizing as many tables as we did pre-covid but it does get loud in here because of how small we are. Sorry about the cold pizza, that's unacceptable. Get with me or Jess next time you're in and we'll make sure your experience is better than ever!! -Anthony

They bill themselves as a restaurant that over looks the valley from Suncrest. While they are in Suncrest there is no view of the valley. The Italian Steak sandwich was very good. The Blanco Pizza was ok. The hummus was bland, I would not recommend it. It was a little pricey for what was offered. The server was awesome, he was attentive and nice. While I wouldn’t say the experience was bad I don’t think I would go again.

Thanks for coming in and giving us a try and thanks for the feedback! Our views are of the magnificent Wasatch Range, Lone Peak and the beautiful snow covered open space in front of the cafe. Pizza is a subjective food for people. Some prefer deep dish, some NY style. Our is Neopolitan style and absolutely delicious, it's what we're known for! If you do decide to try us again, try one of our more traditional pies like the Margherita or Parma. Anthony 801-571-8000

Attention to quality of food is inconsistent. Had Mediterranean Cobb salad that was underwhelming in terms of flavor, texture, and value. Tomatoes were soggy and flavorless. Pizzas are always good and the cookie dough and ice cream dessert was fun and tasty.

Thanks for the feedback! We had some issues with our mediterranean dressing so that has been addressed. Tomatoes are an on going problem this time of year. We've gone to grape tomatoes until those beautiful, local Rasmussen Farms tomatoes come in season. Thanks again for the valuable feedback, hope to see you again soon! Anthony

Food was a little disappointing. Everything tried to be unique, but nothing was really outstanding.

Ridge Café- Draper
Responded on March 10, 2021

Thanks for the feedback! I'm not sure we try to be unique. Our food is pretty classically Mediterranean with Neopolitan style pizza. We do, however, strive to be exceptional. I wish I had some specifics to address the issues you had. Feel free to reach out to me directly and we can do our best to make things right for you!
