Excellent ambient and the service was great excellent people too
The salad bar et al was very good. The prime rib was above average but disappointed they could not/would not give me a med-well slice. The steak slices, pork and chicken were dry and over cooked. The deserts were excellent. The servers were excellent. Based on the quality of the hot items the cost was overpriced. A better value at $30.
it was mine & my husbands first time there. such a beautiful spot! & to top it off, SEEING THE VIEW of the beautiful temple & the rest of SLC! I HIGHLY recommend this place to people who are dating, engaged or even JUST married. it’s so worth it! SUPER BEAUTIFUL :)
Overall, I thought that the experience was amazing. The view was breathtaking, and we loved the live music. Only thing was that we weren't really impressed with the buffet quality given the pricing. However, the desserts were indeed amazing. Just wish the entrees were more impressive, or perhaps at least more varied than the large selection of meats.
Loved it. Great food.
Took my fiancée here for Valentines Day. Everything was perfect. The food, the music, THE DESSERT... the only thing is that I feel like it’s a little too pricey. But I understand you are mainly paying for the view which is spectacular. The service was great. :)
It was amazing. Berkeley our waitress was amazing. The food was so good, and environment was just beautiful.
We loved coming here for our Valentine's celebration. The food is always amazing and it is such a romatic setting. The view is so breathtaking. Our server Derek was awesome. He was super nice and helpful and we enjoyed it more because of him. Derek took good care of us and we really appreciated that!! We love coming here for special occasions and eating the delicious food! Also the live piano music really sets the mood! Loved it!
The first time we tried to get to the restaurant was on a December weekend and although we had reservations 5 months in advance, it was impossible to find a parking place within 5 blocks of the building. We were in SLC 45 minutes before our reservation time and didn't even come close to making it to the Roof on time. To their credit, they didn't charge us the no show fee due to all the events going on downtown that evening. Plan ahead, especially on weekends in December.
We did make it in to the restaurant the evening before Valentines Day and had a very nice table next to the window overlooking temple square and downtown. Great views and enough spacing between the tables that we didn't feel we were sitting in on other peoples conversations. The entire staff were friendly and very helpful with recommendations and service. The prime rib, fish and shrimp were delicious. The other items tasted like food that had been sitting out in a buffet and not so fresh. Take small samples of things that look good the first round and get a feel for what tingles the taste buds and then gorge on the good stuff after that. To me, it seems the price tag is a bit steep for the food but I figure it makes up for it in service, location and all you can eat. Having a great date to share it with certainly makes the experience so much more enjoyable. Bon appetite.
Went to this restaurant as it was labelled on of the best culinary experiences in SLC. The best way to describe the dinning experience would be a cruise ship on the 10th floor. There is nothing gourmet about a buffet.
The ambiance and views are incredible. The food was nothing special.
The roof is a great choice for any date night! It has a great view, friendly hosts, servers and waiters/waitresses. Food quality is amazing! You can’t go wrong with this restaurant!
The restaurant is beautiful and the ambiance is perfect. The view is gorgeous.
The price is a little high for the food arrangement in my opinion.
We were so disappointed. We used to go to the Roof 2 to 3x a year and we haven't been for about 2 years until last Saturday. The hostess looked like she just woke up. We asked our waitress to take our photo and she told us that she's so busy at the moment and she'll find someone else. The food was average. We will never go back nor recommend the Roof.
I liked The Roof restaurant tonight and it was a great evening. The piano was a little too loud and my date couldn’t hear from me for a while. Sometimes I felt like I had to shout to talk to her which was frustrating. The food was great but I wouldn’t say it’s worth $50 a plate. I’d rather have an entree I liked and an unlimited salad bar. The salad was super fresh and one of my favorite parts of the meal. Prime rib was meh, but I’m not a prime rib fan so don’t base you trying it on my opinion.
