Spotted Dog Cafe
The food is pleasing to the eye and satisfying to the palate. The cuisine is handcrafted using fresh local ingredients and homemade sauces.
Open daily for a hearty breakfast and gourmet dinner.
We had a very pleasant New Year's Eve dinner, complete with a fireworks display. Perfect martinis, the duck was outstanding and the crab cakes...YUM.
New Years Eve Dinner was great. Seated quickly. Super attention from staff. Good menu choices and reasonably priced. Arguably the best place to dine in Springdale, UT.
Loved this attractive, tastefully decorated restaurant in Springdale. Parking was plentiful and the food was terrific. The wine list was extensive. Loved the lighting and ambiance and our waitress was knowledgeable, friendly, efficient and attentive.
Rachelle the hostess was great. She helped us accommodate changes in our group size and was very helpful! Much appreciated!
Great service from all of the staff and awesome food for Christmas
Very nice restaurant with fabulous views of Zion National Park. Service very good and professional.
The service at The Spotted Dog is always excellent as well as the experience however our food this time wasn’t great.
One of the best steaks I've ever had, David our waiter was awesome. Everything was great!!!!!
Don’t like it when restaurant puts a long bench against the wall and a tables and chairs to make several 2-tops. Does not seem like you have much privacy with this setup. For a nice dinner at this price point it would have been great to have our own table.
The food was OK, not bad, but not great either. I would describe it as "trying to be gourmet but not quite succeeding."
However, I am unhappy about two things: First, the soup of the day was priced at $5 on the menu, but they ended up charging me $10, which I unfortunately noticed too late. Then they added an 18% tip to my bill. Sometimes restaurants do this for large groups, but there were only two of us.
Never disappoint. Absolutely love Spotted Dog. The service is amazing and the food is delectabl
Beautiful, excellent food, and great service.
A bit overpriced for what you get- I expect more for such prices. Favorite thing to eat was their roasted tomato/olive oil dip served with the house "bread" (more like a tortilla). Lamb shank was ok, not spectacular. Game meatloaf also ok, nothing to get too excited about. Spaghetti was certainly not enough for a teen boy. He said we should have ordered two. On the plus side, desserts were very tasty.
Food is overpriced for what you get. However, the wait staff is very friendly and the ambience is very nice.
Great food and Ana provided excellent service. A little expensive but a great meal and definitely worth it.
Wonderful local cuisine and great service.
Great food and service.
Amazing food, excellent service overall a very fun place to go. Definitely recommend to any who visit the majestic Zion National park. Made for a very memorable experience, and the staff was very willing to work with food sensitivities. It was absolutely delicious food, our favorite dessert was the Italian Lemon cake, it was to die for! I would definitely splurge again for such great memories.
We have made the effort to drive from Las Vegas to see Zion National Park and dine at the Spotted Dog Cafe for more than 15 years. This time, we made a day-trip drive with family members specifically for the Spotted Dog experience. It has just always been a wonderful time. The food is always delicious and first-rate, and the service cannot be surpassed. It has always been this way. We were there for dinner on Tuesday, Nov. 13, and while unfortunately we cannot remember the name of the server, she was a delight who helped make a special evening even more memorable. As I recall, she said she had worked there for 17 years. We have recommended the Spotted Dog to everyone we know who lives in Las Vegas, or who plans to visit Las Vegas. We have also stayed overnight at Flanigan's for special occasions, and that will always be our first choice when visiting Zion. We now live in Washington State and STILL make the effort to dine at the Spotted Dog. It is that wonderful.
Fantastic food. Fantastic wine (impressive list, too). Incredible service!
Always amazing! Brought in some foodie friends from London while they were visiting Zion! They loved it!
Spotted Dog is most elegant and refined of all the fine restaurants in Springdale, and —yes— there are several of them. Its tasteful, artistic ambience enhances its fine, inventive cuisine. It attracts urbane visitors to enjoy a sophisticated dining experience after a day of exploring Zion Canyon. But its popularity can mean a full house every night and that raises the noise level in the front parlor though not so much in the beautiful dining room in the back of the restaurant.
The attached photo is of an authentic French onion soup I ordered and found equal to what I have tasted and treasured in Paris.
We were visiting Zion and after a great day of hiking looked for somewhere to eat. Read a few reviews on Yelp and decided on Spotted Dog. The food was incredible. They brought bread to start but it was more of a flat bread that was delicious and came with a tomato olive oil that was to die for. We then had the tomato soup garnished with basil oil. Ahmazing! I had the pasta purses which were light and rich at the same time. Very flavorful and not heavy like you’d expect. I forget what my husband ordered lol but I know he finished his plate. Reasonably priced with high quality food. Fairly busy place. Parking was a bit challenging. A little loud depending on where you are seated. But it’s a lively fun environment. Highly recommend.
Delicious food, extensive wine list and our waiter, Freddie, was great. A very pleasant evening!
Springdale apparently has a lot of great restaurants and this is one of them. We were hiking/sightseeing in Zion NP and wanted a relaxing and yummy dinner. Spotted Dog more than met the requirements. The complimentary house flatbread and roasted tomato/olive oil dip were a tasty starter. The trout and tuna mains were fresh and well prepared. The chocolate lava cake was rich and more than enough for two of us. Making reservation on OpenTable got us a great table in the back dining room.
Everything was delicious; from the appetizer to the dessert! The service was outstanding and very timely!
Excellent meal! Great food, not inexpensive, but worth it.
The Spotted Dog was really a nice restaurant. The dishes were unusual, delicious and fairly priced. The dining area was attractive with some views of the Zion mountains. The service was excellent. I live in the SF Bay Area and this restaurant definitely beat the pretentious and overpriced fare you get here. I highly recommend it.
This was the best of the three dinners that we had in Springdale. The service and food were both excellent.
When we arrive, table was ready inside. We decided we wanted to eat outside. No problem they accommodated us. Probably because we were 5:00 reservation. When we left at 7:30 place was packed. Highly recommend a day or two ahead reservations!
Food was excellent. Service was superb. Our waiter, Freddy, was amazing. Very knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. Overall I would give this place 5 stars. It is on the expensive side of meals but when the food is that good and the ambience is amazing you can’t really complain.
It was just ok. Better to go to the grocery store and cook your own food!
This is my fevoret restaurant in Zaion. Love all in the place good wine and dishes for dinner.This is place to relacks and wine dawn.
Great crab cakes
The Spotted Dog was a very nice for dinner after trudging thru Zion all day. We were so impressed with the quality of the food and service we actually had reservations at another spot, but canceled the and made reservations at the spotted Dog for a second evening. You can’t go wrong with this choice.
Excellent food with insightful
presentation. Great service!
A find in the town of Springdale👍
This was a gourmet restaurant in the small town of Springdale outside of Zion. It was the best
meal we had during our stay. Excellent food and ambiance.
Excellent food, great service, in a beautiful setting.
Great food, reasonably priced for a nice restaurant in a tourist area. Loved the ahi, and the mushroom appetizer was fantastic too. Great ambiance, especially for a fall dinner. And located right at a shuttle stop!
I was not expecting to eat so well in Zion/Springdale. I was pleasantly surprised! Dinner was delicious. We all ate different things, and everything from the duck, to the tuna, to the pasta was excellent. Highly recommend this wonderful place.
Went here based on the reviews and really did not enjoy it. The food was mediocre and my chicken tasted like it was frozen, thawed and served over my pasta. I really was excited to try it but honestly, would not recommend it.
