We came for a Bday part and the ambiance was amazing!!! Our server was so fun and kind. Also the truffle burger the fries, the Gnocchi all sooooo good!!!!
Loved it! Cody was great and the mussels (which I also get at the Ivy - YUM) we're delicious. The Mandarin Lime Sour was great, too, but I would have loved a whole pitcher ;)
It was great first time experience! Our food was awesome, server was fantastic— he always made sure we were doing okay and his attitude was happy and positive he made us feel very comfortable, we sure did enjoy it. Plan on visiting soon again!
Sexy lighting. Swanky setting. Great service. Very good food. Vegetarian bowl didn’t miss a meat accompanying it. Drinks were reasonably priced but very small. Would visit again.
Exceptional service, Both the bartender & server were great, inviting and funny. The food was amazing everyone in our party loved each dish and I had to try my kids serving’s as well the sweet potato gnocchi is incredible, the truffle burger has the best flavors and those fries yummy, the cashew bowl is delicious... I will be back!!
Too many items missing from menu
It was a Tuesday night and maybe two other tables. We had to constantly call for the bartender because somehow our waitress was always out of the room? Oh and their online menu (which they have you scan on the table) is “out of date” they claimed. I ordered the truffle burger (fantastic by the way) marked for 16$ and was charged 19$. When I brought it up they decided that they would do me a “favor” by “discounting” the meal. Skip dining in and just pick up the meal so you don’t have to suffer through that service and skip the tip.
Very relaxed, great way to start the night
Totally recommend checking this cute bar out! Such a fun atmosphere to grab a drink with a friend or for a fun date night
This place continually knocks it out of the park in terms of service, quality, and ambiance. It could be date night or hanging with a few good friends; this is the place.
Service was quick snd friendly from the time we stepped inside. Staff was great with recommendations and ensuring we had a great experience. The drinks were tasty and the perfect portion. Our order was taken with ease and the food temperature was idea, kitchen and server timing was great. Server was not intrusive, in fact, quite jovial which made our experience even better. The desserts are a MUST.
Loved this place! Interesting menu of small plates perfect to share. Fantastic mussels, charcuterie plate and delicious cocktails. Stylish minimalist decor. Our server Cody was just the right mix of attentiveness and fun sense of humor.
The menu was smaller than expected. The Hummus and Burger were very good but I was a little disappointed in the texture of the Pumpkin Creme Brulee. I did advise the waitress.
Very weird ambiance here; TOO DAMN DARK. Too dark to read the menu or see the food, which ended up being creepy at the end of the night...service was awkward, food was not very well prepared; broccoli underdone, sweet potato gnocchi chewy, the charcuterie board was skimpy and awkward. Meh. Skip it.
Love this place!!!!
The staff was very attentive without being pushy. Great food, drinks, and music. I think of this as a place adults come to meet for drinks and have great conversation. I can’t wait to see the place packed after Covid.
Always a great place for a cool hip environment and perfect cocktails! The food menu is small which I love, and all the food is delicious!
We asked for vegan food. The server changed my husband's mind to something that was vegetarian. It had milk in it and my husband is lactose intolerant. It's a bummer that the server didn't know the difference between vegan and vegetarian.
Fun evening. Tried most item on the menu. All very good. Many items had an element of heat to them.
We sat at the bar and had so much fun. Our bartender was amazing and attentive. Will definitely be going back.
Great spot, good food, overall great place to grab a bite and a drink.
It was my first time at Varleys. The drinks and food were excellent and I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant.
Food choices are lacking.
I like options.
Good for after dinner hangs out.
Love the decor and ambiance. The menu is great, you won’t be disappointed with anything you order!
Really cool spot, loungey with a small but all the way solid menu and great drinks.
Food was outstanding but drink combinations were slightly strange. Most cocktails are served in very small glasses.
Just amazing, so rare to get this kind of experience in utah. 5 stars on all counts
The drinks here are super expensive and service is mediocre, if that! The charcuterie board wasn’t worth the wood it came served on. The entrees were good, but there’s not much of a menu to choose from. There’s nothing here that makes it stand out and there are way too many powerhouses downtown that will make Varley forgettable!!
Great place. Good food. Service was super. They went out of there way to make things just the way we wanted.
Great place, awesome stuff! And we loved the free birthday dessert 😍
Cool vibe, interesting menu and solid service. No complaints at all. Will most definitely go back at some point!
The food was amazing. Much better quality than expected. Just the classic cheeseburger and fries blew me away.
Everything was great. However, I felt as if people were not properly spaced out they seated another couple at the end of our table and it was uncomfortable.
We had a high top reservation, which ended up being at the bar, which is fine. Our server seemed to be overly occupied with something or someone other than us. We had to ask to get a food order going and then our appetizer came out with our food. We didn't even get asked if we wanted another round of drinks. It was a little weird. The drinks were interesting, the gnocchi was the best part of our meal hands down.
Drinks were very very good, the food was tasty albeit everything was luke warm at best. I’m assuming they bring it all from the kitchen of the restaurant next door and it gets cold on the way. I would certainly return, but probably just for cocktails.
That said, I’m assuming their restaurant is amazing.
Absolutely gorgeous little spot. More on the psh side so it’s perfect for dates or getting dressed up for cocktail hour!
Burger was fantastic. Honestly surprised by how fresh and delish it was. Cocktaila were also great.
Very expensive for small drinks and not much a food menu.
A group of friends and I went to Varley for my birthday. The food was outstanding, the service was amazing and friendly. The Vibe made me feel like I was in Manhattan. I highly recommend coming here. Look forward to coming back soon!
