Great dinner at Stanza. Ate at the bar, and Tanner the bartender was great - friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Food was delicious and beautifully presented. Hope to get back there again.
Food was decent. Price was high for average taste. Atmosphere was nice but a little loud
Meatball appetizer and beet salad were really good. Wagyu steak was good but side potatoes not
Probably not a go to all the time but nice to try it
El lugar es muy agradable, muy bien decorado y tranquilo. La comida nos gustó aunque la ensalada tenia poco aderezo y la lasagna había demasiado queso ricota y poca bolognesa y estaba un poco fría al llegar a la mesa.
El vino muy bueno y resaltar sobretodo el servicio y amabilidad y simpatia de los camareros.
Good food, excellent service, moderate pricing, and satisfying, modern ambiance. We look forward to visiting Stanza again.
I chose Stanza for an important business lunch partly because the tables are well spaced and it isn't as loud as many other area restaurants. The ability to hear well was imperative. The grilled Salmon salad was delicious! Three of us ordered that and we all enjoyed the dish. Our fourth guest ordered the Pasta Bolgnese and reported it was very good.
Superb, as always at Stanza.
The food, service, location, everything, was wonderful! The staff was especially fantastic! I can't remember our servers name, because I'm the worst, but he was the best! Professional, fun, and knowledgeable! And the sommelier was outstanding! The food is a bit on the pricier side, but delicious and fresh!
I always enjoy the food and service at Stanza
Food was ok. Service slow and no one was there . Couldn’t find waitress to check out. Beat salad was amazing . Pasta was good .
The bread was absolutely terrible! The duck was rubbery and the accoutrements so- so. I liked my cannelloni , but the other two people thought their meals were average at best. The décor is fabulous and we enjoyed the ambience. Our server, William, was excellent.
So great to be dining again. Fortunately, food only better than before the closing to indoor dining. Great food paired well with great service. Lovely evening.
Reunion with HS friend not seen in 25 years.
Delicious food, excellent service, can't wait to go back!
Food quality was EXCELLENT - beautifully prepared and plated, unique and absolutely delicious. I highly recommend Stanza for high quality, unique and delicious Italian food in a great setting with excellent service.
Loved our waiter and the food here is so good! Never stop serving the Arancini ;)
Good service, food was good quality, staff were very friendly.
Went here for a business meeting. Everyone was late but the host didn't make a fuss out of it at all. The waiter made great recommendations, although you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu there. Great ambience, great food, would recommend.
After work dinner with a friend. Great drinks. Fantastic, attentive service. Solid menu. Yummy good. And you pay for it - not cheap - but worth it.
Amazing food, great menus and nice wine list. Parking in the back. Nice ambiance and very good staff.
Outstanding food and service! We were on vacation but would return here if we come back to town!
Great food as always
Attentive service and staff and good food. We enjoyed our dinner.
Great food and great service. Will defiantly go back when in town. Andrew the bartender was great!
My husband & myself had a great date night! The food was delicious, we will definitely be back!
Fantastic food, excellent service, inviting patio all make for a most enjoyable evening!
Great place, and they always have good wine by the glass.
Allison, our waitress, was knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly. Celebrating my friend's birthday and she went an extra miles to add a birthday candle on our fabulous dessert.
A great combo of food, service, and location! The wine list is impressive. The service is superb...and the menu is diverse. The salads are also exceptional. I loved the two levels of al fresco dining as well.
Marcella was just wonderful! She did a wonderful job, as she served the food and drinks promptly and professionally.
She took care of all tables with smile, consideration and courtesy.
Thank you for a great service , quality food and respect for the customers.

Love it. All around fantastic meal and service. Good portion sizes too
Food, drinks, service, and aesthetic were perfect as usual. Love Stanza!
What a wonderful experience what amazing staff great place to eat replace for a date or anniversary or anything in between I would go back in a heartbeat thanks for the great service everyone there. And you don’t have to wear a mask.
Disappointing is the one-word review.
Service was very slow, both to order and to be served.
My order arrived sans bacon; it was a salmon BLT sandwich. My companion observed the bread was inside out for his chicken sandwich resulting in chives sticking to his hands.
Hopefully, things will improve. But I won’t be returning any time soon.
Marcia our waiter was attentive and amazing. Michael - the MOD - took special care to accommodate our last minute guests (day before) and our special occasion cake. Highly recommended.
Great patio dining. Everything we had was great.
Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, and great food. Tomato Basil bisque was exceptional!
Anniversary dinner and what a great time we had! Everything we had was absolutely fantastic and the service was impeccable. The wine list tends to be on the pricey side but some of the least expensive options are very well selected and you cannot go wrong. Desserts were phenomenal, and I appreciated the selection of amari. Very beautiful restaurant and and a great addition to the SLC high end restaurant scene. Just please (please, please) bring back the ossobuco!
Quiet dining and helpful waitstaff. Food was very good with lots of variety.
Delicious pasta, excellent service. Sat at the bar.
