In 2000, Gastronomy opened it"s first location outside of downtown Salt Lake City. Located in the southern part of the city, the Market Street Grill and Oyster Bar Cottonwood were Gastronomy's first restaurants built from the ground up. Serving the same delicious fresh seafood and tender steaks that you have come to enjoy at our other Market Street locations, but with stunning views of the Wasatch mountains, our Cottonwood location also features a Fresh Fish Market and spectacular patio dining. Private dining facilities include our Creekside Private Rooms, the Garden Court adjacent to Big Cottonwood Creek, and extraordinary Roof Top Dining.

Food is okay, but not outstanding or creative. The prices are exhorbitant for the quality. Salt Lake has many better restaurants to choose from. Service was friendly and competent, though.

I frequent this location. It was most apparent that Mother's Day did not show the Oyster Bar at its best. The food was cold and not up to the usual presentation. Service was definitely subpar. I will continue going to the Oyster Bar but just won't go on a holiday. Nor will I recommend it

Always a good choice when you want good food and good service. Don't hesitate to make a reservation and sit back and relax. Whether it is just the two of you or an evening out with friend/clients you can't go wrong with the Market Street Oyster Bar.

Had a 630 reservation for a front table on the upstairs level. Arrived at 6:25 and was told that there were no front tables only 1 table way in the back by an extremely rude blonde receptionist. We left and took our business elsewhere. What is the point of a request with a reservation if it is not honored

The food is good, not great and very pricey. Wine and cocktail prices are exorbitant.
We asked for a booth, were told we could not have one, and there booths all around us that were empty for the entire 2 hours we were there. The hostess was awful.

We had a good server and ordered Louis salads and this was the key to a good visit. The bartenders produce much better "perfect Manhattan's" up versus on the rocks! Maybe just a quirk of Utah liquor laws. We had a nice time though we noticed a lot of other petiole around waiting lengthy times for meals. The tends to be this restaurants biggest issue. Inconsistent kitchen! Oh, btw, the NW oysters are always good. Another reason we keep going back.

Our meal on Easter was wonderful. I like the ambiance in the Oyster Bar much better than the Grill, so that was a plus. It's a little loud, but we enjoyed every minute of the meal. Great meal, good company. Who could ask for more!

Still a good seafood restaurant, here in Utah. The prices have gone up considerably since the last time we were there (last summer?). I ranked it as a "good" value because we had a B1G1 free coupon for my birthday. Otherwise, it's pricey.
Service was good. We ordered a 1/2 carafe of the wine on tap, and it was cloudy with sediment. The server exchanged it for the other wine, and it was fine.

I have used Open Table for many years and had an email confirmation that clearly stated party of ten at 10:00 AM. Hostess said no, we only have "Frank for ten and the reservation is at noon" she then told me I had pressed noon in Open Table. Hey, I may have white hair but I've been using computers and websites for decades. So somehow the Open Table message did not make it through. They pulled a table together for us and we had a lovely time. I have never had a glitch before so will continue trusting Open Table. Now, I wonder if "Frank" will get his table for ten at noon😂😂😘

Very crowded Saturday night, but we were seated promptly with our reservation. We had to wait for initial service and a longer time than usual for food, however, server didn't act rushed or frantic and he delivered the food hot, brought wine promptly with food, cleared quickly and always kept the water filled- which is unusual when service is so busy. Loud but very fun environment with great nighttime lighting.
