Favorite spot in SLC

This is my go-to recommendation for people traveling in SLC. The food is really amazing. It's a "shared plates" style of restaurant with really unique-but-simple dishes. The French Pie, steak bruschetta, and daily risotto are three of my faves. The atmosphere is young and trendy, but appeals... read more

We enjoyed the menu choices - small plates - that filled us up. I went there twice. Once with the family, once with a business associates. Service was consistent, food delicious. Wait staff helped make selections.

Stopped in for happy hour tapas last week and was pleasantly surprised. Had the truffle fries and brussel sprouts, and they were both really good. My coworker enjoyed the calamari. I asked for one of their specialty cocktails that had grapefruit soda, bitters and lime in it. I asked them to make it with Grey Goose instead of whatever the... More

This restaurant was recommended by some locals, and I'm really glad I went. A fantastic dinner of fresh food, with nice cocktails. The facade is very unassuming, so it's definitely the sort of place you'd walk right by if you weren't aware of what's inside. Don't let that fool you. And if the weather is right, sit in the open...

This place is a wonderful meal for a great. My friend and I really enjoyed the asparagus grilled with an egg, rosemary french fries, watermelon salad and the spinach gnocchi. The gin drink (can't remember the name) was very special too. Highly recommended.

This was my first visit to Eva. The restaurant/ambiance: Small and narrow, typical of restaurants on Main Street. I was a little disappointed when I saw the inside - the tables are too close together. This would be great for a group of friends, but as I was there by myself (with a good book to read), I wanted a... More

The tapas here are amazing. The menu changes a bit season to season but EVERYTHING we've ever eaten here has been wonderful. The small plates are perfect for two people to share. We typically get 3 or 4 small plates between the two of us and it's just right. The variety of flavors offers anyone and everyone something to savor.

This place was recommended to us by our hotel and we loved it. They have a nice selection of food and wine and it's right downtown.

We visited that restaurant in July to have a pre-wedding dinner. After a 20minutes waiting time for a dinner table outside, we were seated at a table that was full with small insects. We should have left the restaurant by then, but we decided to change tables. Big mistake. We wanted to order a bottle of white wine then and... More

Love sharing the small plates giving us a chance to try many different menu items. The food here is excellent. Try the beet salad and crab cakes. They have a cool little cozy patio set between two buildings.
