New Yorker Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

We visited The New Yorker for the Salt Lake City Dine o Round, and immediately upon mentioning that to our server (and rejecting his litany of specials) it was apparent that he got very dismissive. He proceeded to inform us that, since we weren't headed to the symphony after dinner, we would not be his first priority. Then, when I inquired as to why the dessert listed on the Dine o Round menu we were looking at did not match the one listed on the website, he said the restaurant hadn't offered the other in a long time, but he would certainly "take care of us." Apparently that meant giving us the one on the restaurant's menu, because that's what we got. I didn't eat it. The rest of the meal was fine, but I have had better food for less money (and with better service). The New Yorker is definitely overrated in my opinion.

We've lived here for nearly 20 years and finally decided to give the New Yorker a try and we were very happy that we did. The menu had a nice variety of selections. Our server. "Kitty" was awesome, friendly and very knowledgeable about all the menu items and specials. Our meals were excellent, delicious and prepared to order. Perfect place for a special occasion. Will definitely eat here again!

We LOVE The New Yorker. This Art Deco downtown restaurant has always been the standard for superb ambiance, excellent service, and great food. We were here this time for Dine-o-round and did take the Barramundi option. Barramundi is an Asian sea bass with which we were already familiar, having spent a month on a cruise in Australia. The fish was prepared perfectly.
The New Yorker is not the least expensive dining option in the city so the Dine-o-round dinner price of $35 is an exceptional value. We've been here many times for the regular menu and always found it to be worth what we paid. It's hard to believe this restaurant is in the 'basement' since the lighting is more akin to something on the 'roof'. Decorating touches are visually stunning and service is attentive without 'hovering.' The entire experience is memorable.

When you order a plate of lamb for $42.00 and then they fill the plate up with shoestring potato's it isn't exactly the side plate one would expect. I think the potato's are the tackiest food I have seen on a plate in all my life. If I wanted to go to a roadside diner for my wife's birthday I could have gone to Flying J or I could have opened a can of French's canned whatever. It looked like the Mahi had filler on the plate, it had no flavor and the consistency reminded my wife of Tofu. Only because of past experience would I go back there and eat again.

We were in Salt Lake City for a wedding. We had been eating horribly all week, and I wanted something nice. I work at a fine dining restaurant in Ky, so my expectations were set high. Our server, Stu, was amazing. He was catering to our two boys without judgement, and he was so knowledgable of the menu. I was excited. Our food was just okay, mine was cold and undercooked, but we boxed it and went on our way. With that being said, I would still go back if we were in town, Stu made our meal wonderful.

The New Yorker was once the belle dame of Salt Lake, a fancy place for fancy meals. That was at least 100 years ago. It now just feels tired and the food is average on the verge of mediocre.

I know your steaks are excellent, but I took a chance on the salmon. Unfortunately it was very dry. My experience dining in Utah is that fish is a challenge to prepare well due to the lack of familiarity with that cuisine.

The potatoes tasted like instant potatoes, the sauce on the steak was overpowering, the asparagus was under cooked, and the fruit crisp was soggy. Our server was inattentive and didn't greet us and take our drink orders for some time. The food was not worth what we paid for it. We will NOT be going back.

Even with Outdoor Retailers in town for their trade show (and the place was jammed with them) our table was ready and we were seated immediately. Always a great experience but the fish special was truly memorable. Our server, Victoria, kept things moving along with impossible odds considering how crowded it was.

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.
