This was by far our favorite dinner in Moab. It is a small restaurant so make a reservation. The menu was unique and very acceptable for a foodie. And the servers really knew their stuff about the food. Highly, highly recommend.

We tried a few other restaurants but they were closed. We looked on TripAdvisor and found this gem of a restaurant. The Gorgonzola crusted filet was perfect....as was the sea bass. The wine menu was superb as well. Highly recommend.

We had dinner at the Desert Bistro twice while spending five days in Moab. Both times we had a great experience. The service is top notch and so is the food. You definitely need a reservation. Best restaurant in the entire area.
