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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
