This place is AWESOME! straight out of movie (locked doors, hidden staircases, etc.) - probably the best date spot in salt lake city (rivals some of the best date spots in NYC)! :)
Food, Service were both so really good.
Cocktails and mixology were excellent!
I don't think you can go wrong here.
The best date ever in your facility. Great food, drinks and my company was amazing. I’ll be back.
The food was horrible and I should not have paid for it I regret eating there and I was sick all night
Eating at The Rest is my top priority every time I visit SLC. Easily ranks in my top 5 restaurants of all time. Love it!
We hadn’t dined at The Rest in about a year. The menu had some great new additions...specifically the mussels and beer can chicken. The charcuterie board and cocktails were great starters as well. Service was outstanding and you can’t beat the ambience you find at The Rest anywhere else in SLC. Highly recommend!
Matt was fantastic! His recommendation of both food and drink was spot-on.
Service and food was delicious. The fried chicken was amazing... and i don't usually like fried chicken.
Back room is far too dark. Food was good, not great. Lamb was good, as was pork belly. Pork tenderloin way over cooked.
Overall too pricey.
Good food, great ambience, wonderful service. Will definitely go there again.
The Rest was excellent. Everything you want in fine dining and atmosphere. We were very impressed and will be back.
One word.... AWESOME. Food, beverages, service, ambiance....all were awesome!
Great place to dine!! Cool little bar upstairs!!
This was the perfect rustic-urban -romance!
Never been to a place quite like this. It was fantastic, and our waitress was very friendly, and knowledgeable. This place is highly recommended
Had such a wonderful experience. Our server and the bar tender were incredibly attendtive and helpful in navigating the menu.
Best customer service I’ve had in a long time.
I’ll be back
Matt was fantastic!!
The decor, the food and the service was outstanding. A real gem in Salt Lake City!
The charcuterie 😍😍😍
Outstanding customer service and always a good time at The Rest!
Matt was a stellar server! He was very fun and personable. The food was great- and the drinks were, as always, great and unique!
I LOVE this restaurant. It is a very unique experience with amazing ambience, service, and food.
My time at The Rest was absolutely amazing!!!!!!!! The food, lighting, and general ambiance was AMAZING!!! And I can't fail to mention that vinyls were being played all night and it added such a special touch of warmth and authenticity that you don't find much these days!!! The wait staff is out of this world amazing. Our table was ready when we arrived, we were seated quickly, and our waitress was absolute perfection! From Mocktails to Dessert I give this restaurant 5 stars!!!!!
Out of 5 stars, this place gets 6... every time. Don't spare any expense because everything is delicious.
As always we were thrilled with The Rest! We brought 2 friends who had never been before and they loved it! The food was amazing, and our bartender kept us stocked on Blind Pigs all night. We've never been disappointed and we will continue coming back!
New chef is great
We were referred here, but will NEVER come back. The night started off well enough. Cocktails were good, appetizer was okay, and we ordered the beer can chicken. Which we heard was one of the best on the menu. It was an hour wait, but we were okay with that! The atmosphere was relaxing and fun. Chicken breast was very dry, so we were able to eat less than half of our meal. We kindly let the waitress know and ask for some compensation. That's where it all turned south. The manager came over to our table, threw the check down and said here's a little discount. We paid $40 for the beer can chicken, and they gave us a $6 discount. I went up to the bar because our server was nowhere in sight and asked if I could talk to someone about my bill. That's when the manager came back and was very rude. Never an apology for the chicken, instead, he said that it looks like we ate the majority of the meal. That's ridiculous, the entire breast was still there on the plate. As I was talking to him, he scoffed and walked off! Our original waitress came over to take care of it, and to check us out. Matt, the terrible manager walked past our table one more time. I told him he was unprofessional, and he said, "maybe you just aren't a good fit for this place." I am absolutely appalled at the unprofessionalism and service of The Rest. Absolutely no customer service skills. We will never give our business here again or refer anyone.
Pricey for what the food quality is.. but the ambiance and atmosphere are great! should offer better food for the price or a bit less $ for what they offer.. otherwise great!
The roasted veggie appetizer was fantastic and so was my drink, the Flatliner (I think). We ended up buying a gift card for my brother we loved it so much. Only suggestion: the vinyl is a great touch, but keep it to the scratchy jazz and older music rather than newer stuff. Better for ambience.
This was the best date of our lives! The food was delicious, and the atmosphere was sublime.
Waited too long to take the order and too long to change a drink. Food was ok. The pear salad was great
The food was just ok! I ordered the hush puppies they were fair, Also ordered the chicken pot pie! It was below par I feel I could have made a better dish at home!
Still one of the most fun restaurants in town ... when you want good food, good cocktails, and show off to your non-Utah friends.
Very cool experience. You walk into a tiny dive bar and think that you're in the wrong place. The bartender is the host and she then unlocks a door for you to go downstairs into the restaurant. The ambiance is very nice and welcoming. Our waiter was extremely detailed in his explanation of the drink and food menu. The drinks and food were outstanding. I highly recommend The Rest.
The Rest is definitely my preferred restaurant in Salt Lake City. Food, cocktails, service, ambiance: all perfect. I am leaving the city and will miss the place a lot.
We had an awesome time . Matt our server made our first time experience memorable and can't wait to come back again. Drinks was fabulous and I think we tried 8 different types that night. We highly recommend this place.
Great date night however the hostess was a bit off putting, cold.
We love the unique concept and ambience. Food was mixed. The Hot Chicken, ravioli, hush puppies, and vegetable platter were amazing. The fried steak, which we'd had about a year earlier and loved, was pretty mediocre this time around. Disappointing at $39. The Begneits which we've had many times and loved were doughy and undercooked. Hoping this was just an "off night" as we've enjoyed this restaurant a lot in the past.
The ultimate sensory experience. Each one of my senses were tingling after experiencing this place
Love to show off this place to friends from out of town. Great atmosphere and delicious food. Try their beer can chicken, best chicken I've ever had. (if you make a reservation ask for it then)
We were left wondering where “The Rest” of the meal was. $29 for 3 scallops and a dash of sides.
