The food was good but not great. The waiter boasted about the steaks. We had quite a bit of grissle on ours and it wasn't very flavorful .I never paying over $30.00 for a steak and that is all you get. They are charging $9.00 for a baked potato and $11.00 for asparagus. Too much. We also had to pay for parking. Not cool.. We probably won't be going back.

They were having AC issues and had portable AC units in the dining area, really loud and hard to have a conversation, obviously not normal I would hope. I will have to try again at some point but with so many similar options may not be for a while.

I READ ABOUT REVIEWS BEFORE GOING, BUT CHOSE NOT TO LET THAT EFFECT THE EXPERIENCE.
mANY HAD COMMENTED ON REVIEWS HOW THEY WAIT AND WAIT TO BE SEATED, THERE IS NO HOST WHEN YOU ENTER AND YOU WAIT A BIT. WELLL THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED TO US, SO I THOUGHT HUM...BE POSITIVE...FROM THERE ON EVERYTHING WAS WONDERFUL, WAITRESS ATTENTIVE, BUT NOT OVER DOING, FOOD...EVERY COURSE WAS DELICIOUS...THANK YOU

Yulia was amazing!! If you have a chance to be seated with her please do so. The maître d' was very accommodating! We arrived after a long day of training without a reservation, that I then placed through the app, but were greeted and seated as if we had an advanced reservation. Very accommodating.

Our service wasn't the greatest but it could have been a cultural gap. Our waitress was a bit abrasive. When you spend that kind of money, having an abrasive waitress stings. The food was wonderful. The candles were lit at every table but ours.

Mother’s Day; restaurant was not busy during our setting, décor is warm woods, cathedral ceiling lines, smokes glass. Service was friendly, perfect attentiveness, delivery of the various courses was spot on. Two different steaks were ordered from the Prix Fixe Dinner selection; New York Strip, and Delmonico Ribeye, each with their own degree of doneness; each was cook as expected, the flavor was wonderful. Chan’s Ribs were good, a hearty serving, the shrimp cocktail was a little lacking by my view. The Early Bird Special – Tenderloin Medallions w/BBQ shrimp, parmesan mashed potato & asparagus was said to be excellent. I like Bread puddings, the one here is not my favorite, but good.
As is the case in Utah to date, the wine list by the glass is minimal at best. An investment in equipment to improve this would be valuable, the bottle menu looked considerably better, but I didn’t study it.
Wife, daughter, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will return.
We were disappointed with the lukewarm clam chowder soups served us, the appetizer ribs were good, shrimp ccocktails tasty then it goes downhill with the main courses, all lukewarm and cool, the halibut was nice but the sauce overpowered it, salmon was not up to par with what we had at the other Christopher's in the south east of Salt Lake. Meanwhile the prime rib orders were cool...not even lukewarm. Preferred it a lot warmer than what we received. Dessert was good...kinda hard to mess that up. All in all we won't be going back there again. We preferred the other location much better due to the food arriving at the right temperatures and we liked the other ambiance a little better too. A side note....the music was too loud and I like loud music but when trying to converse?
Excellent restaurant, very friendly staff, food is superb, but overpriced. Location is quite and music was rock, but in a romantic vein. The place wasn't full at all when we went on a saturday night so not sure a reservation is necessary. This meant the atmosphere was quiet which was perfect for my romantic night with my beautiful wife.
Good Food, Good Service
Christopher's serves some tasty dishes, and serves them well. Our party of six were well taken care of. The food is a bit pricey, but the restaurant does provide some nice value meals for early diners (before 8:30). The selection is limited, but delicious. Even a that, with three of the six opting for the value meals and two others getting only dessert, the bill, with tip, topped $200. We'll likely be back (we've come twice before), but only for special occasions.
Comfortable setting, steak house charm
Other members of our group said the steak was great! However, with the sides costing extra, it was very pricey even when we split meals. The 1 pound potato was outstanding as was the baked Brie!! The halibut but was very well presented but it did not taste fresh. My gin and tonic was weak, but the wines were good. In summary: some hits, some misses....
Just what you want in a great steakhouse
We had a NY Strip and the lemon caper chicken, both were fantastic. Prices are pretty average for a nicer steak. Our server (I think it was Seth) was phenomenal! He was so helpful and friendly. We will definitely go back again.
over priced food
service was extremely slow. Two other tables were seated after us and they got served before we did. Steak was huge and for the most part had a good flavor, but very overpriced for how much fat was in it.
I would definitely not go back here again.
They wouldn't even leave the basket of rolls. We only got 1 each.
Dinner at Christopher's
My wife and I enjoyed our Saturday early evening dinner at Christopher's. The ambience is soothing. The noise level was minimal, and we enjoyed the background music. The artwork blends in nicely with the decor. The staff are professional in appearance and execution. Our server, a female from Ukraine, attended to our needs while also remaining non-intrusive. I appreciate that she allowed us to enjoy our meal with minimal interference. We will return.
Outstanding food and service.
My lady friend and I enjoyed our dinner at Christopher's. The filet mignon we both ordered was the best we have experienced in a long time. Our waitress was excellent and very enjoyable. We had limited time for dinner as we were going on to the symphony afterward. I had mentioned this to our waitress and she made certain that there were no delays. We had only one complaint. They had a pianist playing and singing for background entertainment. Unfortunately the singer's volume was too loud to allow normal table conversation. This did detract from the experience.
You can expect excellent food and wine service but you will pay for it. This is not an inexpensive restaurant. We will return.
Worst meal I've had for a very long time.
My wife and I tried Christopher's for the first time last Saturday. We both had the salmon. The food was horrible! No flavor. The sauce they put on the fish did not compliment it. The Charred Brussel sprouts were less than desirable also. And very expensive! I do far better than this myself,at home. The only thing this place has going for it is the ambiance. Very disappointing experience for both of us!
I got the Prix Fixe which was very good. Started out with shrimp, then clam chowder, and filet mignon w/ bleu cheese crusted potatoes. Got cheesecake for dessert.
Great service also.
The only critique I have is the music was a bit too loud for me.
Used to be better but still ok
My wife and I have dined at Christopher's many, many times over the years. Our last visit was for Valentine's Day dinner. While the food used to be awesome, this time it was just ok. Our service used to be excellent. This visit our server made a few mistakes. The dinner was still good and we will go back but it appears Christopher's has lost its personal touch during this visit.
