The atmosphere is unsure pass. The food is excellent, but what you are really paying for the view. The service is excellent. It is a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion.
Excellent place for a date
The food is usually fantastic as was the case at the beginning of my last visit. However, the last prime rib they had out was very over cooked and lacked almost entirely seasoning and flavor. I was very surprised at this lack of attention to detail as I have always been extremely impressed. Would still recommend, just surprised at this one hiccup.
The staff was great and the food was amazing. I loved the live pianist and its hard to beat that view! The steak and the desert bar were my favorite!
Our family has a wonderful dinner after seeing the lights at Temple Square. The food was delicious, the views were unparalleled, and the ambience from the live piano music was just perfect. This is a special occasion treat for our adult kids and we look forward to it every year.
Talon was our waiter. Much better service that you could expect from a buffet!
Food, live piano music, view all marvelous.
Visited for New Years expecting fancy dining with good drinks. Should have researched better as the place does not sell alcohol, but I was still in for the fine dining. The buffee was a mixed bag. Good starters with some pretty boring meats (except the chicken). Soup was overcooked, which I felt was a common trait among the foods. Probably because it had been standing there for a while. Deserts was the real disappointment. Chocolate cakes were good, the rest either made badly or just boring. Found a hair in some chocolate cake, so that was a bonus.
We have always had an amazing experience at The Roof. The food is high quality and worth the price, especially for all-you-can-eat. The views are breathtaking! Especially around the holidays with Temple Square lit up with Christmas lights. You feel like you're dining on top of the world. Very much an experience you remember! We have been for several anniversary dinners. Will definitely come back for many to come!
By far one of the best places to dine. Very impressed with our service. The view was spectacular. Most of all the food was fantastic! The creme brule was to die for. The place had a pianist who was playing the best songs for the occassion. Definitely going back!
Absolutely love The Roof, we go every year for my birthday. The service is fabulous, the food is impeccable and the views are unbelievable. Everything is so great and it makes any celebration magical.
I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. Our waitress brought him out icecream with a lit candle while the pianist played the “happy birthday” tune. It was quite special!
So good! My wife and I had a great time! Clarissa, the hostess, was awesome! And so was Abbey our waitress!
Good food it was a little busy for my taste. They had sea food the night we went. The view was perfect.
We had a wonderful experience with all of our adult children and their spouses. The staff were friendly, accommodating, and attentive. We had requested a window table and were seated elsewhere at first. When we mentioned it to the hostess and our servers, they quickly moved us to a marvelous place at the window where the view was spectacular. Several of our children love out of state, so this was an especially important evening. It was a magical and wonderful as we had hoped it would be. The food is spectacular, something for everyone and delicious choices. Our waitress was one of the best we have ever had. She took such good care of us and even recommended the best way to enjoy the yummy buffet. This will be a Christmas tradition every year.
Such an amazing restaurant with breathtaking views of the temple.
We’ve dined here many times over the years. Unfortunately, the restaurant has steadily declined in quality and atmosphere, while the priced has increased. Large groups, who linger despite a time limit, are often noisy and distracting. We had a later reservation time and the food stations were heavily depleted, some virtually empty. They were not refilled during the time we were there. The service was lacking. We had to ask for our bread. It used to be served routinely. There used to be a dress code and age limits. It was a wonderful place for a romantic dinner. Sadly, now it’s just like everyplace else, just with a higher check.
Overall I thought it was worthwhile. My only issue was with the young man cutting and serving the ham. When I asked for a slice, he gave me a very small piece.. about the size of 2 quarters side by side. I asked him for a little more, then he cut open a new ham right down the middle, then cut an equally minuscule piece from that huge slab of ham. Honestly, it was about 3-4 bites of ham total. If this were a tasting table I would expect small, bite sized portions. I was too embarrassed to ask for another piece. You’d think if someone is spending $50 on a meal you would give them more than that. I was not impressed at all by that, and felt kind of ripped off.
It was great!
Love this place the food and everything was perfect my daughter really enjoyed the food, can't wait to go back
Excellent selection and the preparation was top notch
Good food, not great. Great service. Great atmosphere. Way overpriced. Won’t ever go there again at current prices. Would pay $30, not $50.
The Roof was a restaurant my I've enjoyed twice before, back when the price was just more than half of what it is now. Over the years the prices at the Roof have increased, to the point where a single Adult meal is ~$50. The quality of the food, however, isn't noteworthy. My wife and I tried the top sirloin, the chicken, the salmon, the tri-tip, and the Christmas Roast. None of them were exemplary, or even great. The top sirloin was pretty good, but for $50 per person, you need to be more than pretty good.
The view in the restaurant is great, and the seating is designed to maximize that feature, but $50 to sit and look out a window eating mediocre food seems a poor use of funds, to me.
We were very disappointed with our dinner. The service was wonderful but the food and the layout was not very good. We took my mom for her 89th birthday. We were seated right next to the piano (which was beautiful) but too loud. As I was helping my mom get her appetizers we had to move several times for others coming in and wait staff. Once we went thru part of the line, we had to go get into the other line for the salad stuff. The meats except the turkey was dry and tough to cut. The stairs were difficult for my mom. I had called to change the reservation to the garden but the girl I spoke to said that the roof was a better deal. My mom ate hardly anything and it cost us 49.00. So all in all it was a very expensive dinner that wasn’t worth it. Sorry but it’s how all 4 of us felt.
Well I took my girlfriend here after proposing to her! She was impressed, it was more expensive than I thought though.
Great for special occasions. Every couple should go at least once.
Eating at The Roof has become a tradition at Christmas for my Mom and I. This is our 3rd year. Love it!
Such an amazing dinner at the Roof! The view is incredible. I loved looking out over the temple and at all the lights while we dined! Service is amazing, always had full drinks! The food was outstanding!! Best food I think I’ve ever had!! We loved the Roof!!
Food wasn't worth the price. No parking was a available. Had to park 5 blocks away and pay. The parking lot that was supposed to be open and validated was closed for certain groups only and after an hour and a half of driving in circles we found parking. This problem should have been posted on their website.
Server was very friendly.
We were blessed to dine st The Roof. However, no where does it say it is buffet style only. It was extremely noisy, the layout is extremely congested, & almost impossible to get near the crab & shrimp section of the buffet. The staff did a good job of clearing the table after each course & refreshing our water & herbal tea. I just wish the layout was better for both the food and the tables.
We enjoyed our evening st the Roof. We had an awesome view, and the food was great!
I would highly recommend the roof restaurant to anybody looking to celebrate a special occasion or to bring in the holiday spirit. It is one of our favorite traditions!
Love the Roof! It’s tradition. We go every December and it’s amazing each time we go.
I took my girlfriend to The Roof Restaurant to propose to her on Monday night. We left as fiancés! Thank you to the staff of The Roof for making our engagement a wonderful experience and a night to remember! Everything was as I hoped it would be. My special requests from a single rose with a note placed on the table by the time we got there, and the table with the best view of the Temple were fulfilled! The only downside was actually my fault. I didn’t realize my now fiancé is afraid of heights and did not want the table next to the window and she requested a different table. This may have put a little stress on the staff to accommodate her, but they took it in stride. The gave us a table across the aisle with still a great view of the table and she was fine with that. Again, kudos to the staff for making that happen! The soft piano music was awesome and my fiancé was impressed with it. I proposed in the middle of our dinner, which was fabulous by the way, she said Yes, and we got several applause by the surrounding guest. I requested our waitress to take a picture of us and she was more than happy to accommodate.
The food was excellent, especially the prime rib. I highly recommend it! The staff kept checking on us to make sure everything was good and that was greatly appreciated.
All in all, I could not have asked for a better experience. The Roof went out of their way to make our night pleasant, enjoyable, and memorable. They made my job of proposing to my girlfriend a lot easier, as I was already nervous to begin with!
Thank you once again to The Roof Restaurant for everything and I would definitely recommend your restaurant for that special place to get engaged to your significant other!
Great place for eating, date time, family gathering and quiet time with family and friends
I’ve only been here one other time before and my experience was wonderful. This time I weigh thinking going at a later time that there wouldn’t be a rush. There was a really bad rash at 9 o’clock at night. Every time I went to go for either prime rib or the crabs what I really wanted it was always gone or I was told that it would be coming right down. Not worth the money it feels like they are underhanded and need more help with the cooking . Normally this place is amazing maybe it’s under new management. Very unsatisfied for the price. Pork was the only thing that was it taken because it was so dry
It's a special place, many yummy options. The staff is very polite and expedient.
Really enjoyed and ambiance of the restaurant, the beautiful scenic view, the piano music the romance in the air. A great place to have a date night or anniversary dinner.
We were skeptical to go to the restaurant especially after reading a number of bad reviews. We were afraid that the food wouldn't be replenished since our reservation was at 9pm. We were very happy with all aspects of our experience. The service was great, view was great, and the food was very good too. Although it is expensive, we knew it would be before we went--we just wanted to have a pleasant family gathering and we weren't disappointed.
COULD YOU WORK OUT SOMEHOW A ONE WAY LINE IN AND OUT OF THE BUFFET FOOD. SEEMED AS IF PEOPLE WERE COMING FROM ALL DIRECTION. OTHER THAN THAT IT WAS VERY ENJOYABLE AND THE FOOD IS WONDERFUL
