The ambience had an odd vibe due to the lack of service. Food was above average, but the service was awkward and slow. Has potential with better management.

I don’t know if they were short kitchen staff but our food arrived one person at a time, 10 minutes apart. People were finishing their breakfast while others hadn’t got theirs yet. It took them 40 minutes to make a side of scrambled eggs. Poor service, okay food, definitely not worth the wait.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely meal & experience. The food options were unique, the sizes are intended to be shareable with table. The service was friendly & accommodating. We felt comfortable and were able to relax after a long travel day. We’d return if ever in the area again!

Love the food here. The model, though, of all of the food coming out at once/when ready is less than desirable, so know going in to order your items one or two at a time, otherwise you can end up with a table full of food and it feels overwhelming! Also, when there are only two of you, some of the portions are a lot.

My sisters and I ate at the Wood Ash Rye restaurant twice during our stay in Springdale it was that good. We did say we would have loved to have tried everything on the menu. We had the turkey sandwich, the pappardelle and the salmon takara plus the brownie with coconut ice cream our second time around....everything was delicious. You can't go wrong with what you order.

Very enjoyable meal. Food was very good. Service was inconsistent, as it seems like they were training a lot of new staff. Definitely recommend and we will return on our next visit to St George in a couple of months.

Have heard such good things about W.A.R. and it was great. Very attentive service and the food was delicious. Biscuits are too die for. We ate early so not a lot of people before the dinner rush and was impressed that all the employees kept busy with prep & cleaning. No standing around chatting. Will def be back!

Get the biscuits. Every single time. We love W.A.R., but wish they would switch up their menu more often. You usually get good service. Normally dining is around 2 hours. This time we did have to send a very over cooked steak back. We will be back when the menu changes for sure!

Birthday for myself and my Father. We share the same birthday and we received two free deserts for our Birthday dinner here. I thought that was above and beyond! Excellent service and delicious fresh food. We shared the entrees & small plates. So my only complaint would be a bigger plate & more serving utensils! Delicious...we’ll be back.

Food quality was excellent and service was great.
Food comes out as it done and shareable. You can ask for more traditional style if you like but this worked out really well sharing as it arrived

Amazing restaurant in the hotel lobby. My wife & I are big fans of Autograph Collection hotels and this restaurant lived up to our expectations. Great decor and style. Several items to choice from on the menu. The chicken in a biscuit was unreal!

The food was very tasty. We enjoyed the lamb Korea with hummus and Naan, and the four assorted tacos. Original flavors. Service to get second round of wine was slow. The marble topped tables were covered in water ring stains. We were assured the tables were clean even tho they didn't look it.

Service was great but it took so long to make the bread pudding we finally left without it. If you order dessert plan an extra 20 mins for that which we didn't have that time.

A pleasant ambience, professional service, and really spectacular food. I was particularly taken with the pork bellies and watermelon, a combination I never would have thought of, but one they carried off masterfully.

Way too pricey for the food you get. Steaks were not cooked as ordered. Never got a refill on drinks, including water. I don’t have a problem paying top dollar for top quality/service, and this was a complete let down.

The waiter took our order and then maybe checked on us once the hour we were there. No refill on beverages including water. Food is ok but service was lacking. Also when you have a reservation you should be seated before those that don’t.

Our second time at WAR..first time was at the bar but we chose the dining room this time...the waiter was nice but the front house staff lacked the training to complement the dining experience as well as the food. We started with two apps...the house bread with butter and jam and the mushrooms-the bread was delivered sans butter and jam...toast in a bowl. We needed to ask about the butter/jam and glad we did, the jam was excellent! We then ordered the grilled Caesar salad to share and the pappardelle pasta and pork chop. This is where the staff inexperience resounded...the pasta was the first to arrive, followed by the grillled Caesar almost ten minutes later and ultimately the pork chop over 20 minutes after the pasta. While the timing of placing the order was completely mismanaged the food has always been enjoyable. The clear favorite (jam aside) was the pappardelle..the ragu of tomato, mushroom and beef tasted like it had been on the stove for hours and was perfect withthe home made pasta..wonderful dish! The grilled salad would have been perfect had there been tableside cracked black pepper and fresh parmesan...unfortunately the dish fell just short. The pork chop was OK...while it was cooked well it lacked seasoning and the peaches in the stone fruit salad also lacked taste. I ordered an espresso after dinner which arrived warm at best without lemon, sugar nor spoon. Again---WAR has the capacity to be a wonderful experience...the bar side dinner experience certainly was, but with some proper training from the back of the house on how the front staff can better compliment the wonderful dishes coming from the kitchen this restaurant does have the capacity to provide an amazing dining experience.

4 of us had a reservation last night and were promptly seated without a wait. 👍

The server was pleasant and friendly and explained that the food comes out to the table “as ready” and they recommended eating and sharing “family style”. The server also mentioned that they were recently the recipient of an award for fine dining.

The restaurant and environment are great and definitely a significant improvement for most other dining locations in southern Utah. (That’s from outward appearance only)
So far so good…

The food took a long time to come out and to their promise each one of our four entrees arrived at different times. The first two came out after about a 15 min wait and the final entree (mine. Steak and Frites) came out a full 45 minutes after the first.

Yes we are having labor shortages and yes a new level of patience is expected by consumers, diners and customers, but this made for an awkward dining experience that seemed very disjointed.

The kitchen does not appear to be managed well and creating a new “style” of eating and serving “as ready” seemed to be more a coverup for a poorly managed kitchen than a new trend in dining.

Omg… we come here a few times a month and I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing it is! The Local Salad is our absolute fav with biscuits of course! They had a special last night with chicken (Monterey something with the most amazing flavors ever!) that we are told is going to be a permanent fixture on the menu!! BEST. NEWS. EVER. We love it here and will always have this as our favorite restaurant! As long as the service stays INCREDIBLE!!
