I decided to try the New Yorker for lunch, although the food was good the price was more suited for dinner than a midday meal. Also, the restaurant reeked of raw seafood. The rose I had was ver good and my server was very informative and attentive.

As a graduate of the Cesar Ritz Hotel Management College I know exceptional service when I see it. I no longer work in the industry but eating at this restaurant brought back memories of serving tables in high end establishments all over the world. The service was spot on and was choreographed flawlessly. It made it an absolute pleasure to dine at this establishment.
The food was excellent as well. The portions were generous and we definitely ordered too much and left very full. The grilled artichoke was tender and flavorful, the burrata fresh & creamy and prosciutto delicious, the brie and mushrooms paired fabulously. For my entree I ordered the special Porterhouse, it was cooked perfectly and tasted like the top quality piece of meat it was. However the onion rings seemed to cheapen the presentation of such a delicious cut. The chimichurri sauce was balanced and not overly applied. My date had the heirloom tomato salad with fresh feta cheese and was quite taken with it. I did not try it myself so I cannot leave my opinion, but she really enjoyed it.
For desert we split the creme brulee. It was good, but the custard had broken either during cooking or storage. The coffee was excellent.
Overall I have to give the experience and A+ and I will definitely be back in the future.

Fine dining establishment that lives up to the expectation. Food, service and cocktails were all excellent. Old school Sinatra-type music in the background, and thankfully at a nice, low volume which allowed conversation without straining to hear the other person.

This place knocked the ball out of the park. I wasn't expecting the food/service/ambiance to be so top notch. We love Flemings, Ruth Chris, Spencer's, and coming here we didn't know why we never came before. I can't say a single negative thing about this place. It was just that awesome. From starters to dessert everything was prepared to perfection.

You folks did a great job , the Business meeting folks I took loved your place.
only one issue, the music from the speaker over our table was a little loud ( great Music) had to talk louder than I liked, some of us folks are kind of hard of hearing, but was still OK over all.

We wanted to have a memorable dining occasion for a new professional client. The New Yorker was perfect. We had a private room so there was minimal background noise. The ambiance was excellent, very impressive. There was a great variety of wonderful food and the service was very professional and prompt. Our clients were very impressed. We plan to come back to the New Yorker.

This was a group of employees who were sent to lunch for a job well done. The room was private and set up beautifully, the service was perfect and your dessert menu is stellar. We enjoy being able to come to a nice restaurant for lunch. There are not many in the city. Thank you for a great experience.
Always a Great Dinner at the New Yorker!
We met friends for dinner and had a wonderful evening. We have been coming to the New Yorker since they opened in the late 70's and have never had a bad meal! The ambience, service and food is always perfect. I like the fact that we can always order our favorites but, they also have seasonal specials that keep the menu fresh and new.
My husband had the Filet Mignon and I had the Pappardelle with Lobster which were both delicious. Our friends had the Alaskan Halibut and said it was done to perfection. My favorite dessert is their Grand Marnier Souffle which I always order along with my dinner. I don't think it's on their regular menu but they are always willing to make it for me! Our server Kristi was very attentive and extremely knowledgeable on the entire menu and took superb care of us the entire evening. Restaurants come and go but the New Yorker has always been our favorite and is always consistent in every way.
Nice special occasion place
Went with family for a night out. Nice restaurant, decent wine list, food was very good. Good sized menu.
Our server I think was a bit new, but she did a good job, just not quite polished yet. The same can be said for the food. Very good, but just not quite stand out. And that I think was our major issue. Everything was good, but for the price you expect just a little more creativity.
That being said, if you are looking for a nice special occasion place that is "safe" to bring almost anyone with almost any taste in food, this is an excellent choice. The tried and true done well!

The restaurant is beautiful, the service is fabulous and the food is always delicious. Hillary is always so welcoming and makes us feel so glad to be back at the New Yorker. Cori is a wonderful server and always has the best food suggestions.
Great food, neat ambience
Celebrated a birthday here with a special lunch. Very nice staff and wonderful service. The building has an art-deco vibe and was comfortable and warm, even on a rainy/snowy day. Also, free valet parking is a plus. The lunch hour was not crowded at all. Food was fantastic and fresh.
Old line, traditional place
Food and service are old school but quite good. An awful surprise was bread with large chunks of garlic baked in -- tasted horrible. Because it is an old building, and downstairs, it tends to be dark and a bit creaky. There is an unpleasant odor - water based - when one descends the stairs and enters the lobby. I've noticed it before. It is a good place for formal dinners with associates or special occasions.
Beautiful space and food--ambiance slipping?
I have been coming to the New Yorker for years, since it was a private club. This is one of my go-to spots for a special occasion meal. My recent visit didn't disappoint--the space was beautiful as always, service was attentive, and our meal, including salads, entrees, dessert, and drinks was excellent. Menu standards are consistently delicious and well presented.
One disappointing note to an otherwise lovely evening was the low standard of dress of other patrons. I think of the New Yorker as an upscale restaurant, and was confused to see diners in jeans, t-shirts, and even a baseball cap at the table. More than one table included diners in such attire. I know Utah isn't typically a very formal place, but I think the low standard detracted significantly from the experience. Shame.
We have been here twice now, the food is always really good. I had the filet mignon which came with broccoli rabe and mashed potatoes. The steak and broccoli were amazing. The potatoes could have had better texture and flavor. My husband got the New York Strip. He loved it and the cheesy au gratin style potatoes were delicious.
My only complaints about the food...they try to make their butter look fancy and it comes out hard as a rock. We had to wait a while to be able to even put it on our bread. We also got the creamy crab and corn soup. It tasted a bit fishy for my taste, too much like clam chowder. The consistency was great.
Also, for Valentines it wasn't as romantic and intimate as I was expecting. The last time we came it seemed pretty dim, quiet, romantic. This time we were seated next to a large group and the lights were much brighter. It was a little disappointing that it wasn't as intimate as I remember.
Newyorker Was Fantastic!
I made reservations for my wife and I to celebrate Valentine's Day at the NewYorker. I asked around an did some online research for nice fine dinning places that would be worth 40-50 bucs a meal. The Newyorker was the repeated restaurant that I kept hearing so I made the decision to give it a try. My wife and I were not disappointed. My wife and I are restaurant and food snobs. We expect the service to be professional and the food to be exceptional. My expectations were absolutely met. The food at the Newyorker was phenomenal and the service was close to perfection. The restaurant decor was fitting for Valentine's Day. My wife and I will absolutely be returning to the Newyorker soon with empty stomachs!
Our Annual Valentine's Dinner
Going to the New Yorker for a romantic dinner on or around Valentine's Day has been our tradition for the last 10 years, or so. We love it and look forward to next year as soon as we leave every year. The service, ambience, food and cocktails are are always first class. This year was no exception. We shared the Duck Confit with several appetizers and it was all amazing; as always. Looking forward to next year and to seeing what delectable options will be offered.
Great food, drinks and service.
Had dinner in the Cafe prior to a play at the Capitol Theater. We were given a wonderful table in a corner that provided a lot of privacy. We were not rushed by our server and were able to enjoy our drinks before ordering. As always the food was wonderful. We will return.
A restaurant for a (very) special occasion
Definitely a special occasion place - whether it be a romantic thing, or your grandmothers birthday, or whether it's a place where you need to impress whomever you feel you need to impress.
Service was excellent (thank you Blythe for your knowledge of the dishes and the wine list!), the wine list expansive (although somewhat expensive), the food very well prepared and equally well presented !
The below street level restaurant is not obviously wheelchair accessible, but is otherwise accessed quite easily.
The interior decor smacks of 90's elegance (1990's, not 1890's), but it is not at all unappealing, and should you feel the need to entertain a large group, the restaurant has some larger private rooms.
Valet parking is a pretty good deal at $5 - but beware - when the restaurant closes, not unreasonably, the car parking guys go home!
Was a favorite, not anymore.
Have dined here many times, but this time was different. To begin with the drink my wife usually has was no longer on the menu and the bartender nor wait staff could remember or look it up even though we knew most of the ingredients. It had been on the menu for 2-3 years at least.
Second disappointment was that the menu had seafood on nearly every item, only ONE dish was chicken and it had prawns on it (which we asked to omit). The stakes are WAY TO BIG for the average appetite 3/4 lb each (12oz) which made them even more expensive in an already $$$$ restaurant.
We won't be back, as we usually eat lighter fares and there was little in that area that wasn't either a huge overpriced portion or seafood. Their menu use to have more of a steak restaurant fare. Now it is just a higher priced annex to their sister restaurant Market Street. Even they usually have a better selection of non-seafood items.
This is now the 2nd restaurant which we use to frequent that we won't be going to (the other was the Metropolitan which closed a few years ago) and have to search for another.
We eat here about four times a year. Usually when we have guests in town who appreciate fine dining. The food is very good to excellent and the waiters/waitresses do an amazing job. There is no corkage fee (that means if you bring a bottle of wine from home they do not charge you, some restaurants charge up $20 a bottle). I would like them to expand their menu to include one additional entree in each category, eg fish, pasta and meat. I like variety and this size restaurant would be able to handle it, that said everything I have ever had at the New Yorker has been excellent.
