We dined here for New Years Eve dinner. The ahi was fabulous and so was their filet mignon/shrimp special. Our waitress was very responsive to our request to pace the meal, and the timing was perfect - never rushed. We ate early so there was still some light on the canyon walls that added to the ambiance. Would definitely return on our next trip to Zion.

This is when it was really worth it to make your reservations through Open Table--we avoided holiday crowds. Between the three of us, we split a house salad and the cream of mushroom soup. The soup was probably the best tasting mushroom soup I have had in a long time. Rich texture which doesn't overpower the mushroom flavor. The chicken mornay was nicely presented on wild rice and perfectly done broccoli and carrots. The NY strip was cooked to preference. Thank you for making our 30th Wedding Anniversary special.

We went on Christmas Eve based on the good recommendations. The service was spotty; we ordered drinks and they didn't arrive. The server had disappeared and when we asked about the drinks she just said that we should have grabbed her and asked for them. Hard to do that when she was nowhere to be found. The restaurant had run out of potatoes which happens but surprising given that it was holiday time. The food was underwhelming.

Really great creative meals. Outstanding food, and ambiance. In Zion, for Thanksgiving week, capacity crowds, got in easy w open table reserve. Always good. Have been coming number of years. Always, have my best meals here. Very reasonable on pocketbook, for the quality.

Beautiful restaurant close to Zion. Popular and upscale. Great atmosphere and good place for a date or romantic dinner. Huge wine list. Our waiter was great. Lots of choices on the menu. Good size portions. The salads were delicious. I had the salmon (very good) and my spouse had the lamb shank (excellent). A bit expensive, but worth it. Highly recommended.

Spotted Dog Café had good ratings so we decided to try it while on vacation in Utah. The food was fabulous both nights we ate there (we liked it so much the first night we decided to come back!). We both had the meatloaf and loved it! The next night we had the burger and enjoyed that also - tender with a bit of crispness on the outside of burger. Would highly recommend and it is so close to the Zion National Park so a great place to go after a day of hiking! Staff is awesome as well!

We were in Springdale visiting Zion National Park and this was one of the few restaurants that took reservations. Since it is such a small, touristy town, our expectations were not high. We were pleasantly surprised by the food, service and ambience.

I had an excellent salad followed by a wonderful plate of braised short ribs with frites. My bride had pork and loved it. Drinks were good and we split an excellent dessert.

If we were back in Springdale, we would definitely go to the Spotted Dog again.

Fantastic! Recommended to us by a foodie friend. We started with the charcuterie then I had the Mediterranean pasta with flounder (all perfectly cooked) and my husband had the Guinness braised short ribs with Parmesan frites. We finished with the lemon creme cake. Top to bottom all excellent. Pricey but well worth it.

What a pleasant surprise to find such a nice place in the National Parks! Our server, Sebastian, was professional yet friendly. Food was great. We are very tempted to return again during our short stay in Zion. Best plate of the evening was the Smoked Trout starter. Truly fantastic. All sauces and dressings mad in-house. Tremendous wine list. And a menu that has something for everyone including vegan and gluten-free.

80's dining throwback, from menu to ambience. Food good, though disappointed that the restaurant didn't acknowledge my husband's birthday, which I not only noted on my open table reservation, but also discussed (with the table to our left in front of the waiter. Is ordering a dessert mandatory these days for a birthday wish?

Waited over 15 min for waitress to acknowledge table; 3 other tables that had been seated after us were waited on. No listing of specials. When attempted to order items were told out of. Rude attitude. Forgot to bring drinks/coffee until prompted; and still didn’t bring till meal mostly done. Food was subpar, especially for cost—fish was dry, lamb was bland, “mixed” salad consisted of mostly one type of greens, and not much else; also took about 20 min. arrive at table. In short, crappy service and well below quality of food (especially for price). Would NOT recommend.
