Great restaurant - a real gem! Traveling and in town for a week. This was on the list based on good reviews. We were very happy we ate there. My wife had the Atlantic Salmon - cooked perfectly. I had the Châteaubriand for one. Both plate we well done and artistically presented. I have a shellfish allergy and the chef accommodated with a different sauce. The vinegarette was delicyon the salads. Good pairings on the wine as well. Jason was our server and was polite and professional.

My husband and I had just arrived in St. George and had a very bad day. Seemed that everything that could go wrong did. And we could not find the restaurant. When I called them for directions they were very considerate and gave perfect directions. When we entered the restaurant the owner/chef came out of the kitchen and to our table. He held my hand and told me that he was going to create something special for me. He made us a delicious crab dip with thin crackers and tomato bisque soup with smoked gouda. Both were absolutely delicious and absolutely free. That meal was the absolute high point of our day and saved the day for us. He did not have to do what he did but it was deeply appreciated!
The food was wonderful. The service excellent and the meal was so very relaxing!

The Owner Chef was very engaging in welcoming our party of three. My wife and daughter were glowing after being with long stemmed roses upon our arrival. Jason, our Server made us feel as though we were long-time customers rather than first-timers. Our meals were exceptional. The wine list, although short, was excellent and reasonable. Upon our return to the Saint George area we definitely will dine here again.

A stifling lack of A/C (finally addressed 3/4 through my visit) and being able to hear every squabble the staff and chef had nearly ruined my dining experience. The food, however, ranged from very good to amazing. As lobster is the namesake, I went with lobster tail, and it was fresh and mouthwatering, if a little overseasoned with a mix of spices whose flavor profile didn't seem quite right for the job. It was also HUGE, so avoided those bits. Alas I had no room for some pretty tasty looking desserts. The wine list was small, but very nicely curated.

It's kind of a weird space for a fine dining restaurant, but they make the most of it--tables set beautifully with tablecloths, cloth napkins, fresh flowers, and beautiful settings.

This restaurant has all that you are looking for. Service was excellent and their focus was on the customers! My wife ordered the Bucatinni (Fruita di Mare) and I ordered the Veal Shank. Both were delicious and cooked to perfection. There was a good wine selection as well. Before leaving, our chef came to our table and asked how our meal was. Since it was our first time there, the chef gave us a dessert to share. Yum, it was tasty.

Yes, prices are above average and worth it. In my opinion, far surpasses food and service at restaurants in Mesquite, like Gregorys and Katherines. We will certainly return here

Chef Kim was a delight! The food was beautifully presented and was equally delicious! They took great care in the service and the attention to every detail. The seafood was extremely fresh and tender. The appetizers were preceded by an amuse bouche compliments of the chef which was a really lovely touch. My dinner partner was British, and he claims it was the best sticky toffee pudding he'd ever had! If you are in the St. George area, do not miss out on this lovely little restaurant.

We were visiting St. George, Utah and we discovered "Aragosta." It was a most pleasant and delicious surprise! We were warmly greeted by the chef/owner. He enthusiastically explained the menu and offered some very helpful suggestions. The food was exquisite. The service was perfect. It was a memorable evening and I would highly recommend this small, intimate, chef-owned restaurant to you.
