Been here several times, but $50 is fairly stiff during the holidays for simply adding scrawny crab lags
The roof is always outstanding and it is by far my favorite restaurant to go to. The staff is wonderful and the environment is astounding. I highly recommend it for any more-than-casual occasions.
The menu selection has changed. in my opinion not for the better. The dessert bar was dramatically different - not as good and not much of a selection. Missed the poached salmon.
I think the food is just ok. Its fun for a one time thing.
I was very disappointed by my experience at the Roof. The food is served buffet style, and it was not warm even when just brought out. The crab was dried out and lukewarm, the prime rib was overcooked, the cheese plate was out of cheese most of the night, they ran out of plates and bowls more than once. All in all, not an experience worth paying over $100.00 for. The view was beautiful though. I recommend taking the elevator to the 13th floor and taking pictures of the view, then going across the street and getting some good food at the mall.
Great place to celebrate the start of the Christmas season with our family.
We went for an evening birthday celebration and sat with a beautiful window view of Temple Square. I appreciated having a interesting beverage list without alcohol. When we asked a question about the preparation of one of the dishes, the chef came out to talk with us and tell us some of his secrets. The wait staff was engaging, the food was delicious, and the location can’t be beat. A perfect celebratory evening.
Terrible experience. I asked for a nice quote table and they gave us one right in the middle. Also... after 2 hours we literally got kicked out. Not a good place for a business meal. Terrible experience
I have been to The Roof several times and the atmosphere, food and service has never disappointed me or my guest!
Loved everything except sitting behind wall that basically eliminated view of temple lights
We had a very nice, quiet, and enjoyable dinner here. Our window seat view was amazing. The service staff are cery nice, friendly, and prompt. The buffett, wow! I would highly recommend this restraunt to anyone!
I'm a bit mixed over this review. We have been going here as a family for about 8 years around Christmas time. While several of the items were better or improved this year. They changed a few of the basic staple items.
The changes I just can't live with...What did you do with the honey butter? Seriously, Lion House rolls and honey butter are like Spaghetti & Meatballs, Burt & Ernie, and Trump and Twitter. While the savory Thyme butter with Balsamic glaze was good it wasn't the honey butter. Seriously, give me the option but don't get rid of the honey butter. Creme Brulee isn't the same. It no longer has that rich caramel flavor that makes it a go to desert. It was creme but bland and not like the old one. And finally, what happened to the Bread Pudding, Sorry the new recipe isn't as good as the old one. Too dense and doesn't have the same butter flavor that the old one did having been made with the Lion House rolls.
The king crab legs were fantastic and the new layout was delightful but all of that was overshadowed by the changes of staple items that were the things I craved.
We love The Roof we have gone for special occasions and just for great food. You won’t be disappointed.❤️❤️
This place is amazing! My wife and I made the roof our anniversary tradition!
Great food and amazing staff! Quick side note, they do not serve alcohol.
Julie was a FABULOUS server! The food, as always, was amazing (although there was a customer who did NOT understand the concept of a “line” who made it a bit less pleasant for everyone). Otherwise, outstanding service.
I will add, though, that whoever is in charge of the building logistics needs to seriously reconsider its priorities on days like the Tree Lighting ceremony. TWO of the three elevators were out of service that night, and instead of prudently permitting only those with reservations to ascend to the tenth floor, the building allowed anyone and everyone, consequently blocking the elevator and causing a twenty minute wait to get up to OR down from the tenth floor. And the woman guiding traffic at the bottom was downright rude to customers.
If a fire had occurred that night, hundreds of people dining or sightseeing on the tenth floor would’ve perished, and the Jos. Smith building would be condemned.
We decided to WALK the ten floors to the basement instead of stand in a thirty minute line for the elevator. It was honestly appalling on the part of building management.
So, while our Roof experience was nothing short of exceptional, building management should take a good hard look at itself and it’s priorities, and adjust accordingly to avoid future lawsuits.
Hot food was cold. No crackers for cheese. Salad bowl needed to be replenished. Very disappointing.
An amazing view of the Capitol Building and the Tabernacle.
Huge Buffet with great selection
Amazing as always. $95 without tip for two of us so not a cheap date but you get what you pay for. Amazing food and view!
What a great place to have an special moment with some that care
This was our first time eating at the roof. Heard a lot about it. We did enjoy the food for the most part. Wish the deserts were labeled and perhaps more choices for vegetarians and a better salad bar. Ribs and ham were great. Mashed potatoes were good as well. Little pricy for what you actually eat. My wife and I aren’t heavy eaters so it felt like we didn’t get our money’s worth food wise, but the atmosphere was def nice and view was great.
The menu had changed way to much. Less food options! Salad bar was really poor. Food was fresh but no options to build a salad. Only one soup. Only a few dessert options when there used to be an amazing amount. Very sad.
The view can't be beat. The service top notch.
Made reservations for seven a week prior and was asked to sit at two different tables. I finally was able to get them to put my tables together. Service was poor, waitress didn’t want to wait on us. I expected much more from The Roof.
Our server Derrick was phenomenal. The kid was on point the whole night, made my anniversary with my wife better than I had planned. Give that man a raise.
Absolutely loved this restaurant. Came for our anniversary. The food, service, view and ambiance was great.
The problem that I saw was that we didn’t get service for drinks after we where almost done with our first plate
Then she wasn’t checking to see if we needed anything
Not very pleased with the service
Also the food
They never replaced the main course plate that we didn’t tasted just kinda paid 49 for a salad and desert per person
The 5 choices of meats were excellent. The salmon was prepared to perfection. The variety of salads and cold plate offerings were very appetizing. Great to have large cold shrimp and tasty cocktail sauce. The awesome view, varied piano music selections and friendly staff were an additional enhancement of the evening. The only suggestion would be to have warm plates at the carving station. We arrived at 5PM at opening on a Monday to enjoy the best presentation and freshness of the prepared dishes.
I proposed to my girl. First off when we were seated we had the wrong name card on the table. Second I ordered a rose with a custom note to be attached. Well guess what no note. 3rd my chair was so wobbly I'm surprised it didn't break on me. We thought the view would be great.... then the blinds opened and the windows were so horribly dirty. The meat was either so dry and stuff , or dripping in blood. Mashed potatoes were horrible. The best part was our waitress she was amazing. I wish I would have proposed some where else
Excellent place to be on a special occasion . The food was great, the view amazing, and the staff excellent
I fee that you are mostly there for the ambiance and scenery but the food didn’t blow me away at all.
NORMALLY I would hands down recommend The Roof. We have eaten there a few times the past fifteen years, when we are in SLC, and been pleased. This go, not so much. My recommendation: go early! We went at 8 pm, and our service was terrible, food was cold and wasn’t being replenished. It was a sad experience. Beck the pianist was the only light to the evening.
It was a little expensive, but in the end was well worth it for the view, service, and food for my anniversary!
Absolutely amazing! The service, the food, the VIEW!!! I will definelty be returning!!!!
What a wonderful experience! The service was impeccable, the food was outstanding and the views were to die for. The only thing I would complain about is that I felt their dessert selection was rather weak. Past that, I would highly recommend to anyone.
A nice restaurant overall, stacked plates because server never really came around. 2 people, 100 bucks plus tip- not really worth it- but the view, ambiance, and piano were nice, and it was relatively clean.
Very educated and courteous servers. I enjoyed every moment. It was the perfect date for an engagement.
The food was delicious!! Our favorites were the chilled shrimp and cocktail sauce, sushi, pickled vegetables, beef tips and mushrooms (phenomenal) and mashed potatoes. A must-try experience.
We love this place really good food and very romantic restaurant.
This place has an AMAZING view and the food is just as perfect.
Amazing food and amazing desserts! The service was very prompt in this the server was extremely helpful and kind and very friendly
