The Roof Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
So disappointed in this restearaunt for the money we spent which was $350 the staff was rude and one waitress even rolled her eyes at our 7year old daughter when she wished her a merry Christmas and thanked her for helping her. Absolutely saddened by their behavior. Won't be go In back, this has been a tradition for a long time but service people have really home down hill. Extremely sad to end a tradition based on that. Our family spent over $700 total for sub par service.
It was my daughter-in-laws birthday. She has a severe peanut allergy. I noted on my reservation about the allergy. I then talked to the restaurant they assured me there were no peanuts. I had been there before and hadn’t seen any. So then called a second time to double check and was assured that there weren’t any. I requested a menu but nothing regarding any nut was listed.
I was assured that our waitress and the restaurant had been made aware. They had not been made aware.
Well not only did they have nuts, they had a bowl of mixed nuts on both ends of the buffet and peanut bars on the desert table. Since the kitchen is small, there was no possible way of not having cross contamination. She didn’t get to eat for her birthday. Disappointed. So FYI there are high allergens and high possibility for cross contamination for: Shell fish and all nuts.
I love the ambiance at the restaurant, however, when I am paying $50 per plate I hate feeling like I’m at Golden Corral while waiting in a crowded line. I am sad at my last visit as I have fond memories of the the Roof, but it felt like an overpriced cruise buffet I would suggest a different buffet layout as far as the movement of people as it feels cheep. Also the food quality needs work.
The atmosphere and view of the temple are great whether you are LDS or not. While the service was good, and we had a great date night with good noise level for intimate conversation, the food was truly a disappointment. It is difficult to justify a high price with any buffet style dinner menu, unless you offer fantastic food. This was just regular buffet food with a high price. Reminds us of the Eiffel Tower restaurant in Vegas with a beautiful interior and a great view of the strip, but they can save money on the food because their guests are distracted by the glitz.
Loved the view from our window seat. The staff were happy and intergenic. The food was on point and the drinks were above par. The flowers were on the table per our conversation. We really loved Heather on the piano and she one hundred percent made the difference in our experience. Amazing music picks from Chopin to David Lanz to the man from snowy river... SHE WAS AMAZING!! Our server engaged Us in conversation and had a real nice Personal Touch. It was a perfect night in every way.
The rolls were not great, mashed potatoes were bland, veggies were either crunchy or very soft, pasta was over cooked, salad bar was good, dessert tasted store bought. Very conservative location, great view of the capital and temple, no alcohol. For the price and quality, I don't think we would go back.
Food was such a huge disappointment. Kabobs, steak couldn't even chew it. Vegetables old. Penne Pasta so overcooked. Desserts looked pretty but cheap and not good tasting. Garden Room from now on. It was our anniversary celebration. Waiter was fabulous.

Had diareah for 24 hours
Had the worst possible table I think, couldn't take any good pics from there, of course that is the less important.
I found a hair in my food and the only fix was our server saying, let me take that away from you... Nothing else.
There was flies at least around our table and for the price of almost 50 dollars per person anyone would expect a different dinning experience...
The views around the restaurant are quite nice..
Don't think I would recommend nor come back.
Really fun place to go for special occasions. Romantic and a great view - which is the main reason to go.
The food is decent but overpriced. The selection is okay, but the prime rib has always been very rare.
The tables for two are very small, if you get the flowers they will take over your table.
It’s kind of an odd choice to have it as a buffet. I think I’d enjoy it more as a regular menu restaurant.
