With a reservation, or if allowed admission from the Bartender upstairs, you can experience The Rest. It is a subterranean gem that looks like a bar that Hemingway would have built. Dark wood, taxidermy, old books and plenty of good whiskey. Perfect place for privacy and escaping the world for a minute... Or hours.

The food was incredible! We ordered the brussel sprout salad and charcutterie board to enjoy while we waited on our entree (the beer can chicken for two - it takes an hour to prepare). The offerings on the charcutterie board were unique, fresh, and so enjoyable. The craft cocktails were also so incredible! I tried the Northern Territory and Rain in the Valley - recommend both.
This place is so kewl! We ordered several drinks and several different food choices and everything was OUTSTANDING. A bit pricey, but overall worth it and we plan on returning.
Wonderful surprise in SLC...very pricey...so be prepared.
So sad that the hot chicken is off the menu. I actually didn’t think it was as good as when we came last - and the hot chicken was on the menu. Still very good though.
Loved the place. Good vibes and great food.
The beercan chicken is perfect. The pork chop was amazing. Next time I will try the steak!
Great food and atmosphere. A favorite! Love to take friends and family there.
Most flavorful and well executed food in salt lake we’ve have for a while. Great ambiance in the library in the speakeasy as well.
Great atmosphere. I really liked my cocktail, but my boyfriends were just okay. Food was good.
Food is okay, cocktails and service are outstanding!
Loved it!! Great ambiance. Great food!!
Nice dark atmosphere. Great food and drinks. Dress spiffy
I was expecting a better ambiance. It was a bar with a small conversation area and then booths. boring
Anniversary with my husband. Our waiter was AMAZING. Food was really great except for my deep fried steak. It had no flavor and took me a really long time to chew a bite. We’ll go back though because everything else was phenomenal!
Awesome date night spot
Great vibe. Awesome place!
1) Atmosphere is awesome. It’s chilly downstairs. But not terribly so. The lighting is as dim as advertised. Be prepared. Matt was fantastic. Recommendations were great.
2) Drinks are worth the dollars. Most places around town water the stuff down. Not here. And the mixers/bartenders are a definite cut above. Spend the dough for sure.
3) Food is amazing. The Beer Can Chicken is a must. It’s not a wonder it never leaves the menu. Absolutely incredible. That said, pricing is a bit on the high side.
We met some friends from out of town there, and we all thought it was a great place to go.
It was amazing! The food was delicious and the people were all so nice and it was quiet and relaxing !
It is a cool place good with drinks. The food wasn’t the best.
We had an excellent night out! Ky/Kyce ( so sorry I forgot) was AWESOME. We were treated amazing and we will be back.
One of the most unique spots in salt lake city, great serive and amazing food.
Phenomenal as it always is.
It's always awesome at The Rest! Best cocktails in town, fabulous food, great people!
Amazing spot for Craft Cocktails! Very unique and exotic, yet approachable. Five stars!
Love The Rest!!
Louisa was perfect! Great food
Awesome place for a group dinner. We ate in the library. Highly recommend.
We enjoyed a wonderful evening at The Rest. The experience was distinctive beginning with the walk to the lower level. The beer can chicken is roasted upon your order and deliciously worth the one hour preparation time.
Outstanding spot in SLC. The decor is subdued but effective, the food and drinks are outstanding, as well as the service.
Great cocktails. Interesting location. Service was spot on. Appetizers good but Entrees way too salty. Chef has a heavy hand with the shaker. Recommend drinks and appetizers.
love the rest. love taking people there for the first time because it is so unique. our guests loved it and Kia our server was the BOMB. thanks!
The best meal and service ever!! Far above any expectations.
Service was fantastic- as was the food. We will be back.
Great experience. Great food. Awesome atmosphere.
I've been to this bar many times over the last few years but this visit lets me know that it's gone way downhill. The server would not leave the table and was definitely overserving. The food was bland and tasted like you share all your fryers, even the sweet items tasted like they had been fried with other things. The drinks were the biggest disappointment because this used to be the best place to get a well made cocktail instead I got an overspiced and over iced drink. Our food was served before our cocktails made it to the table which was not okay because we specifically asked for dinner to be served later . Not impressed.
Cocktails are still great, but the food has gone way downhill. We had four different dishes and they were all ehhh to terrible. Would recommend for drinks only.
the food was decent, but not for the price point. drinks were good. it was a cool atmosphere but a little too dark, could not read the menu. we went for a birthday and nobody even asked for my reservation name or anything. we were sat in a corner, not even a table. would not go back for food, only for drinks
This is one of the most unique and cool restaurants in Utah. Their charcuterie appetizer is amazing as well as their beignets.
Original, great atmosphere, easy to comfortable take your time to eat and overall enjoyable experience.
