Best place to eat in Utah

Communal is a hip, modern restaurant located in Downtown Provo. I love communal because not only does their food taste great but they also care about sourcing their food locally. Communal was one of the first farm-to-table restaurants in the Utah Valley. The restaurant has a modern, open look with... read more

It was our anniversary dinner. I had read the reviews and they were excellent. The service was good, but the meal was only ok in our opinion compared to the cost.

A reason to come back to Provo for sure. I almost stayed and ate dinner at my hotel, but thanks to Trip Advisor I didn't. Eating at Communal was more than just a meal, it was an experience! From the excellent service I received from Andrew, to watching the kitchen create beautiful dishes, to enjoying my most flavorful meal of... More

Communal is a great place for a date night or gathering with friends. We absolutely loved it and think it truly is one of Provo’s finest restaurants, while still being a place you are comfortable wearing jeans. Compared to most restaurants, their portion sizes are on the small size, but for us, it was plenty of food and we couldn’t... More

Missed the appetizer order, I cancelled it. We all had salads and I thought for what I got it was a bit pricey. Nice atmosphere, it is family style, service good except the appetizer over sight.

had dinner here one night while on a business trip. Friendly staff and great food. They even played great music in the restaurant. Loved the buttersotch dessert and the braised short ribs. If I lived in the area I would eat here all the time.

Came for Saturday brunch and had the Pine State. It was delicious. One of the heaviest meals I think I have ever eaten, especially at 10am, but it was fabulous. Make reservations ahead of time with friends and enjoy the food and atmosphere.

I live in the area, and there are a lot of good options for restaurants in Utah County, but Communal takes the cake on quality and atmosphere. I don't have rose colored glasses, there have been a few things I've tried that I didn't like (the menu changes seasonally), but it's a taste preference, not a lack in quality. The... More

Fair price, good food and great service. Served family-style, with elegantly presented dishes and very accommodating staffs. And how wonderful the drink was!

I have never had a dish here that didn't impress me. Even the things on the menu that sound mundane are just awesome. Most of the menu items, though, don't sound mundane. The chef at Communal does an excellent job being innovative and creative, but not weird. The quality is always top-notch. A great place to go for good, down-to-Earth... More
