What an enjoyable dinner! I was so impressed with the quality and attention to detail. I tried several plates to get insight into the chef and I wasn't disappointed. I had the avocado toast with pumpkin seeds, cilantro and a bit of chilis to give it some heat. LOVED it! The dish was so balanced with that umami thing going on. I also had the artichoke and foraged mushroom toast that was also delicious. The touch of agave sweetness was fun and surprising.

My absolute favorite was the pork belly and watermelon. I have never had the combination before and this was one of the best pork belly dishes I have ever had. It was so perfect - sweet cold watermelon, hot crispy belly, sesame, heat, salty, unbelievable! Great job! This chef definitely understands that wonderful balance in great food!

I ended with the grilled Caesar salad. This was my least favorite dish and I still liked it. The sous-vide egg was interesting but didn't add much flavor to the dish. The dressing needed some salt and squeezing the lemon just didn't add enough of that anchovy lemon goodness great caesar dressing gives to a salad. The romaine was perfectly cooked - warm on the outside, crisp and cold on the inside. It just needs a bit of tweaking to make it as perfect as everything else was.

The service was perfect - attentive, informed and friendly without being too present.

Overall a wonderful experience!

Sego is a special gem in some of the most beautiful landscape on the planet. Surrounded by the red hills that border Kanab and in the middle of several national parks, this restaurant focuses on creating some of the best meals you will never forget. Local ingredients used in unique ways paired with hand crafted cocktails. Ask your server for recommendations. Drink, eat and be merry at Sego. Don't miss it.

The striped sea bass was so good, so perfectly cooked and fresh, we were astonished. Also excellent was a small plate of beets with smoked feta ands peppery greens, and the spicy cauliflower. WE live in Paris and did not expect to find such wonderful food in Kanab Utah. or almost anywhere in a long road trip that included good meals but very few as refined and creative. Our server, Ashley, was dleightful, we were gifted with a mistaken extra order of foraged mushroom and artichoke toast,. This us well worth a special stop, you won't be disappointed.

Top notch chef who is innovative and visually acute to his plates. All I need say is "watermelon-pork belly appetizer." That was astounding! Who would have thought this combo would make for a truly unique and beautiful plate!! Add to that the baked brie, Sego noodles, shrimp dish, and finish off with Utah apple dessert and you have one very fine meal for two. Cocktails and wine excellent as well.

We were very pleased with food and service, both excellent.
We did not like the round tables where you have to sit on a straight sofa - somehow one was always shifting around to reach either food or drinks. There were other couples as well who didn’t like it, one couple in particular aked to be moved to a ‘regular’ table once it became available.
Other than that it was a real pleasant experience.

“Social Dining” - or “tapas” or “small plates,” call it what you will - really comes together at Sego. The dishes are creative, fresh, and sized for sharing. A couple will probably enjoy 4-6 items, and the friendly and charming wait staff are more than happpy to make suggestions. Regrettably, more than a few groups come in not knowing what to expect and end up walking out without trying a bite (I suppose they were expecting more traditional entrees) - this is absolutely a restaurant we enjoyed. Plenty of wines by the half-carafe, along with craft cocktails, rounds out a wonderful meal.

We stayed in Kanab to visit the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. So glad we tried this place.

They offer a small plate dining style, which works out because you get to try so many different things.

Everything we got was amazing! Our favorites were the Avocado toast, Foraged mushrooms, Beef filet, Seared sea scallops and Cauliflower.

The service was great as well! Ashley, our server, was very attentive and friendly.

All and all, a must try! Wish it was closer to home because we would defiantly come back!

We have stayed a the hotel in the past and weren't able to eat at Sego because it was booked, so this time made a reservation. We had an outstanding meal with a great wine. Really interesting small plates. The steak was some of the best we've ever had. Great service with a view out the window of the red rocks. What a treat!

Ashton at the Quail Motel recommended it to us when we asked him for suggestions. We had not tried the "shared plate" style of dining but we thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was outstanding and the only reason we didn't book again was that we only had a very short stay in Kanab.

An absolute gem of a restaurant that you would expect more in New York City than in a smaller town like Kanab. Creative menu, fresh ingredients, delicious dishes and excellent service. Very welcoming vibe and even outdoor seating with a firepit! When passing through this charming town, a meal at Sego will be memorable.

My buddy and I scored two passes to the Wave in North Coyote Buttes, so we thought an outstanding meal after our good luck would make it a perfect day. Sego DID NOT DISAPPOINT! What a gem! In Kanab, Utah, no less. I wish the Sacramento area had restaurants this good. I will definitely dine here again should I ever find myself within 60 miles of Kanab. Maybe even within 100 miles!

My wife and I visited during a southern Utah hiking and tourist trip. When looking for restaurants in the area while planning our trip I saw the great reviews and booked reservation. Fantastic food experience, just fantastic. This place lives up to its reputation completely.

There are some negative reviews, but clearly those people don't have any idea what they are talking about! A++ from us!

Sego is one of the best dining experiences in the Southwest U.S.

The menu is filled with interesting dishes that are often built around Utah sourced ingredients. I highly recommend the Charcuterie. The selection of meats, cheeses and fruits is a wonderful display of the hand crafted foods the state offers.

Main dishes are supplemented by rotating specials. Plan to share as each dish is so good you will want those around you to taste how great they taste. Any dish with beef will be unforgettable because the kitchen knows how to prep and cook each cut perfectly.

The bartenders at Sego match the quality of the kitchen. Hand-crafted cocktails are unique and highlight local spirit makers. All your server for a recommendation...you won't be disappointed.

My wife and I have visited Sego three times in the last two years. We love in the Phoenix area and any trip we make to Southern Utah includes a meal at Sego.
