This buffet dning experience does not come cheap at $39.95 per person but the food was excellent. The rib beef was cooked to perfection. Make sure you leave room for dessert - or rather desserts - as the choice is amazing, especially if chocolate is your thing. Being part of the LDS group there is no alcohol, not a bad... More

We went to The Roof for my husbands birthday and it lived up to everything we had heard. Lovely atmosphere, beautiful piano music, and amazing food! The dessert bar was by far our favorite although the ribs were a close runner up. Our service was extraordinary never once having an empty plate at our table for more than 30 seconds.... More

If you are in the area stop at the roof to eat dinner , the food is really good and worth the price. Ask for a seat with the Temple view

The food and service are excellent. The cost is a bit pricey but worth it for a special treat. The views are outstanding.

We were seated at a cozy table with a view of Temple Square. The Christmas lights were twinkling and gave such a magical aura for the evening. The Food at The Roof is amazing with several buffets to choose from. Salads, main dishes, carved roast beef and ham and the desserts are to die for!

This restaurant has a beautiful view of Temple Square, and directly overlooks the Mormon Temple. Meals are served buffet style. The food is good and plentiful. Overall, it's a bit too heavy, creamy, and "saucy" for my taste, and I would prefer spicier food, but that is not their clientele. Everyting is presented very nicely. The tables are bussed efficiently.... More

Overall the food is good other than the thin mashed potatoes. Lots of salads, meats and treats not much in sides. But well done with good flavors. Service is good. We also enjoyed some delightful new deserts and flavors in mousses and cakes. It is over priced for what you get. It is the location and view they rake the... More

Get a window table if you can. A particularly popular experience during December when the lights are on all over the Square

Elegant and Romantic are typically not words used to describe any sort of buffet style restaurant, but at The Roof Restaurant, these seeming opposites come together to build one of Salt Lake City's premier dining experiences. First, we had reserved a table for two as my wife and I were going out to celebrate a birthday. However, we needed to... More
