    Husband was asked to take his beanie off in order to be seated. He was wearing a button down shirt and not completely casual. Next gentleman after us also came in wearing a beanie and the host didn’t comment. Had to request water refills, and overall the food was mediocre at best. Not good. Cheese in my husbands pasta in the middle was cold, not room temp but cold. Food was extremely lacking in flavor. Was not impressed with the service or food.

    The outside of the bldg was beautiful. It was all downhill from there. Our service was horrible, we ordered our appetizer & our dinner at the same time-it was over an hour after we finished our appetizer that we recived our dinner. There were only 2 in our party. Our food was mediocre-not worth the prices they charge. The music in our little room was so loud everyone had to talk over the other tables. There was an echo in our tiny room with 5 table, the seating reminded us of Cheesecake factory. There wasn't anything "intimate" about our experience. My mojito came in a whiskey glass with tons of ice. When our waitress finally came around, we ordered another drink I asked for a titos soda with less ice - when the bartender came with my drink he confronted me in front of everyone in the room- about how he didn't put too much ice in my 1st drink- they measure the ice & since I wanted less ice - my titos soda was only 1/2 full. My mojito glass that I handed him -was still full of an ice ball that hadn't melted after 25 minutes. I wasn't rude I didn't argue- I only asked for a little less ice. When we asked for our check, our server threw the paper receipt on the table no leather binder. We were never rude. 1 table in our room was there before us & they actually got up & left when we got our appetizer. Another table had to ask to be moved after the server knocked the wine Glass over & glass broke all over & in 2 of their plates. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE

    Food is world class. The filet and the salmon were absolutely top notch. The dining area is a lil cramped and a lot of people in a small room so it gets a lil noisy sometimes. But in the summer they have a beautiful patio that solves all of those issues.

    Great food! Service was good although the waitress mistook my order and instead of getting my entree I only ended up with the soup I meant to be as an add on for my dinner. She offered to get the entree but by that time my Husband was half way through his meal so I opted not to wait for the entree. It was a miscommunication but could have been avoided by asking if I still wanted the entree as well. Otherwise loved the quiet atmosphere and the food that we had was awesome.

    This was our first dinner experience here. Every other has been for brunch and it’s been incredible. Our reservation was at 7:00 and the table was ready on time. The food was amazing as always, but in this particular night, the service was less than desirable. After having to ask why the service was so off, we were informed that there was only one waiter that night. For a restaurant of this caliber, this should have been made known by the host when we arrived. It wouldn’t have changed our plans to dine there, it would have just been nice to k is what to expect beforehand.

    The food is always worth the price. I compare this place to high quality places in Vegas. Can't find another place in Utah that is as good. Honestly the best steak I have had in Utah EVER. When it melts in your mouth like butter and they serve it with chimichurri how can you get any better.

    Weird… the soups were good. Entrees less so. We had the halibut and filet. The experience was strange. The service was very unaccommodating but incredibly polite. Weird because the requests were not complicated. It was so bizarre. Oh well we had a great laugh over the ridiculous situation we found ourselves in. Joking that maybe we were being punked. We weren’t. Not likely to return despite the good laugh it gave us.

    Upon arrival the owners greeting was "you have to remove your hat" When I asked why, he said that he did not allow hats in the dining room. It was a man's brim hat that I was wearing because it was raining outside, and one that I would not have worn while dining. My wife an I decided to split a salad, and we had to ask for 2 salad plates, and additional salad dressing. The drinking water had a horrible taste. The lobster Mac and Cheese was supposed to be topped with Panko bread crumbs and bacon bits, and it was not. And, it contained only 2 small pieces of lobster. I There was no domestic beer offered, and when we asked for bread, the server said they do not serve bread. No valet parking which was explained by the owner "I don't like valet parking" The fonts on the menu were so small, my wife could not read the menu and I struggled to read it even with my glasses on. On a positive note, my meal was delicious, but my wife did not enjoy hers. Upon leaving, I mentioned the aforementioned issues to the owner, he did NOT (even one time say "Im sorry") Oh, and by the way my tab was $247.43 with tip.

    The menu was amazing - many unique choices. We were surprised that there was no indoor dining the night we went, but fortunately it was a beautiful evening. You have to ask for indoor seating through October when making a reservation. Our entrees took a little longer than expected but our waiter checked in with us and told us the status so we knew they were being prepared. We asked about sharing appetizers and desserts and Dallon, (I think that was his name), our server, recommended the ones that would be easiest to share. He was very attentive and pleasant.

    Seated outdoors, the ambience is like a haven...shrouded in trees with a water fountain in the background. It's like the world is a million miles away. Menu is outstanding, like fine dining and some comfort food done Executive Chef style. It's not cheap, but considering what you get in quality, the value is there. The Owner and Chef, Marco, is friendly and approachable, and he'll approach you to converse about your experience...he is genuinely interested. Servers and busboys are courteous and respectful of your privacy. We'll be back for sure.
