This is one of those restaurants where you take somebody to make a good first impression. The service is excellent, the menu is great and the food is also very good. Formal dining.

I was a guest for a business lunch meeting. Pretty heady views and a down-home comfortable atmosphere. The food is solid mid-Americana. The lunch crowd is busy, and the elevators are slow, so careful if you are in a hurry.

No alcohol, no coffee, no tea, NO BIGGIE. You come for the view so the good food is a bonus. This is a MUST in Salt Lake City. The view is amazing and best seen just before sunset. Bring your appetite because it's a buffet...More

Food was fantastic, especially the desserts. We had a window table with a great view of Temple Square. It was just after sunset which added to the view. Our server Katie was fantastic. Most of the websites said business casual but many were in shorts.

The food looked & smelled terrific, but as vegans, our choices were somewhat limited. We did quite well with the salad bar and the kitchen did bring out baked potatoes for us. We were in a large group, and I can say that the food...More

Great choice of food, well presented and frequently topped up. Table set out with white cloth and napkins and silver cutlery. Eat as much as you want, fresh plates and cutlery each time. No need to rush, super views.

Depends on the day part. If it's dinner I'd go business to dress. If it's earlier in the day, business casual is fine. It is a favorite of locals but tourists as well so you'll see people in jeans and T-Shirts up to full on... More

Well, taste in food varies among the tasters. I found it, at best, mediocre. Others sing its praises. I had no problems with the service, and the temple view is first-rate (unless the evening sun is in one's face).
