Had a great lunch at the bar watching the NCAA basketball tournament. I had the steak and wedge and my buddy had the Aha Tuna. Both were beautiful on the plate and tasted wonderful.

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
