We had the buffet. The butter they give you with rolls is sweet (honey butter) which was awful. The rolls are sweet. Blooming onion soup was sweet! The savories are sweet. A lot of pre hype over their desserts....Errr the desserts were average. These kind of desserts are served in most big hotels - so not a big deal really.... More

The food is great. It is buffet but the buffet has an extensive selection and a great dessert selection. The prime rib is slow roasted 15 hours. Yum. However the best thing about this restaurant is the view. Be sure to book a table on the north east side, and be sure to get a table time that is after... More

It is a little pricey but other then that we love the experience. We went here right before we went to Europe. It is a little pricey i n our experience but worth it. I do not think this is a place I will dine frequently but it is very nice.

I was invited for dinner here during a business trip. The whole experience was fantastic! We had the dinner buffet, and it had everything you could ask for and then some. Our table was front and center of the Temple. In the evening, I was impressed with the view even more as the Temple was illuminated with colored lights that... More

The food is good. It's a nicer buffet, and in other circumstances I would not have paid that much for a buffet. However, you don't go to the Roof for the food. You go for the view. Nowhere else in Salt Lake do you get such spectacular views in the center of the city. Our table overlooked the Salt Lake... More

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.
