such delicious food - excellent flavors - sandwiches and salads are incredible. the staff was great. service was great. we love eating here. nice for special occasions.
Food had too much sugar and butter on it.
Very good restaurant. We were there and many kids there for Prom Night.
Nice view. Food options are basic but tasty.
Awesome food!! Spectacular view!! Wonderful service!!
My wife and I took some dear friends visiting from Memphis, TN to this establishment for dinner and were not impressed. Unknown to me at the time, my guest had eaten lunch here on the same day. He said the prices were high and the food was mediocre. After eating dinner there I couldn't agree more.
Host was on cell phone while I waited to be noticed to be checked in.
Drinks were slow to be refilled.
Host did not check in to pitch in for waiters for things such as water, salad dressing, or ketchup.
Had to walk up to ask for check and to go container.
There is never enough salad dressing.
Atmosphere was nice. Great view. Nice people but I've had better service there.
I love the view. The food is good. The service was slow and lousy and the lady didn’t keep our drinks refilled. Then we were forced to pay 18% gratuity which she did not earn.
The view of the temple is absolutely beautiful though!
Love the open air feel when the roof is slid back. Walls of windows on the West and South sides give great views of SLC from the restaurant located atop the Joesph Smith Memorial Bldg. Food was presented beautifully and service was excellent. The salmon was excellent as was the large nut and berry salad. This is a wonderful place to go!
We had a fantastic experience dining at The Garden Restaurant! They made us feel like kings! The food was fantastic, truly a fine dining experience. The views were wonderful! They even opened the roof which made the experience beautiful. The service was wonderful, I only have good things to say. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great fine dining experience. I’ve had much more expensive meals that weren’t nearly as good. 5 stars!
Thank you for the fast, great service. Thank you for adding to our fun day.
The food was wonderful and of great value. Of course the views from the Garden Restaurant can't be beat anywhere, and my friends from out of state were taken with how beautiful view of the Temple Grounds were. Our waitress was very willing to answer questions about the menu, offered to take our picture, and was always smiling and helpful. I have been to this place a few times, and it always delights.
The restaurant had a great view of the square. The best part of the meal were the light, fluffy rolls that are complementary.
It was a bit chaotic when we arrived due to a prom night. But the check in just seemed disorganized. I had made a reservation. The food was delicious and the view is spectacular. It was a nice experience.
We went to the garden room for the first time and it has a beautiful view of the city, of the temple and the temple grounds. The food was SO SO. The spinach artichoke dip was amazing, just thought they could have put a little more artichokes in it. The croutons in the ceasar salad were cornbread style croutons. Kinda different. I ordered the chicken and it came bone in which I thought was a little different for a nicer restaurant. All in all, it's worth the experience to have the view while you eat.
Wonderful 10th floor dining room with a spectacular view of the downtown area, including the LDS Temle grounds !!
Friendly Staff & attentive service with a great menu !!
Great place to catch a nice meal. Service was fantastic. Food was excellent. We will be back.
I like this restaurant a lot, but the waitress I had that night couldn’t help me with my food allergy. I got immediately sick after eating my meal because there was dairy in the meal, even though I explained very clearly that I was allergic. The steak was too rare, and overall I was disappointed with the service and food quality.
Very fast and friendly service. The whole restaurant was extremely clean and tidy.
So delicious!!! The staff is amazing and the view is beautiful!
The food was delicious and fresh. We ordered a spinach & artichoke dip which was fabulous. A berry salad which was also larger than expected and delicious. The chicken dish was good too. The shrimp macaroni was under-whelming. I was expecting more depth of flavor and thought the sauce was a little watery. The waitress seemed a little distracted that day and I had to request an item a couple times before it was brought to our table. Despite the restaurant only being about 1/3 full it was pretty noisy and it was easy to overhear others conversations all around us. The set up and view was beautiful
The view at sunset was beautiful! My berry and pecan salad was fresh and flavorful. Stephanie, our server, was attentive and efficient. Noise level was louder than I would have liked, especially since we went specifically for the view and had hoped for a quieter atmosphere. Did not care for the stainless steel table, and would have preferred having a tablecloth.
I had the steak and my Wife had the pasta. Her pasta was great but the steak was awful. Way too much pepper in everything! Acoustics were terrible but the staff was very friendly. We might give them a second chance but it was a very disappointing dinner for our 17th Wedding Anniversary.
Gave me a unsanitary steak knife and did not give me the drink I asked for.
Is very amazing to my wife like everything the food the view is very perfect for night date
We ordered the salmon entree. It was delicious--melt in your mouth. We also ordered specialty lemonades that were great. The rolls were very fresh, soft, and warm.
It tasted fine but I would do a thicker sauce on the shrimp macaroni. All the other food i had was really good. Waitress was the most attentive waitress ive had anywhere for as long as I can remember, so that was great. Loved the view.
The salmon was amazing. One of our party ordered a hamburger done medium well and it came out medium rare, but over all the food was wonderful.
We love everything about the Garden Restaurant. Have eaten there many times. The service is great. Thank you.
Excellent service and amazing view. Server was very kind and attentive. Food was good quality, but the portions were a little on the small size for the price.
I love your restaurant. It is a wonderful place to dine with great food and beautiful view. I consider the pricing on the higher end of what is reasonable. Perhaps that is the cost of having that experience in your restaurant.
I love their food, especially their Burrata cheese appetizer! Delicious! You can’t beat the view, of course. The service was excellent, we liked our waiter very much and our food was out to us quickly!
Love this restaurant. The reasons I couldn’t give straight five stars:
Ordered the club sandwich. It had this delicious onion jam on it, but there was only enough to taste it in one bite. The rest of the sandwich was plain. There was also a very meager amount of arugula on my sandwich as well. It was almost as if it had been slapped together too hastily. I had a hard time getting my server’s attention to bring me more jam as well as boxes and a bill. She could have been slightly more attentive as the restaurant was not crowded. However, she was super friendly and the overall experience was really good.
The views. The ambience. High quality comfort food. Attentive service that isn't intrusive. Easy parking under City Creek. The Garden delivers with reliable consistency. The perfect place to introduce a first time visitor to SLC from above.
We love the Garden Restaurant. It is a great place at Christmas time and we always go there after the conference we have every year at the Salt Palace. It is our favorite place to celebrate, relax and unwind. Great service and great food.
I love to bring my out of state guests here. Fond memories.
We like going to the Garden Restaurant when we have events downtown. The food is great, the views are incredible and they take reservations! Not many restaurants downtown take reservations. It is nice not to have to spend 30-60 minutes waiting to get seated. Our waiters were very fun and we had a great time!
The food was great, but the service was painfully slow. WHO RUNS OUT OF ROLLS AT 7 AT NIGHT?
The view is spectacular, but that's about it. I was not impressed with the quality of the food. My cobb salad was a head of lettuce, some disgusting bacon, and an egg or two. Definitely not worth the $$.
Beautiful views, exceptional service, food is not spectacular but decent. Nice lunch with family.
