What a great spot. Loved the atmosphere, Devore, and the wait staff! Food was excellent! I am a steak and potato guy, it was perfect, just as I ordered it! Enjoyed a Predator wine from Lodi. Best wine I have ever tasted, and I've had a few. So if you are ever in Salt Lake City, give yourself a treat!

Food is great, but on the expensive side. A nice place to eat if you want some privacy and enjoy the atmosphere.

I used to love to come here. The quality of food was great. Then it slipped for a while so I had preferred going to Ruth's Chris. After now going back for such a long time it has returned to the quality it once had. Great dishes. Fois gras, scallops and calamari all great choices. And filet and king crab... More

No real separation of food just plopped plate. One of us ordered a steak for $44.00 that was medium well when ordered medium rare. By the time staff came around to... More

Nothing special, restaurant is inside the hotel, service is quick, food is ok, nothing exciting... so why not.
