Restaurant was recommended by the Information Center at the Temple. We wanted something close to the Temple site as we were planning on the 2:00 p.m. organ recital. Two restaurants were recommended: The Cafe on the ground level for casual and quick lunch. The Rooftop for a view. We chose the Rooftop. Upon checking in, I remarked that it would... More

When in Salt Lake City in June 2014 my wife and I decided to have dinner at a nice restaurant downtown. We had been visiting Temple Square and found The Roof Restaurant to be a wonderful choice to enjoy the evening! We were seated at a table overlooking the LDS Salt Lake temple while the evening was coming on and... More

The best in town. Buffet style food, much more than you can ever eat in one meal. Everything is delish! Live piano, no alcohol, and fabulous service. Book a reservation though, it can be tough to get tables sometimes.

We went for the buffet in early May and requested window/view seating for our anniversary with OT. Great view of the temple with sunset behind it. Very good buffet selection and service. Make sure you leave room for the desserts that are topnotch. Live piano music all evening. Free parking in the garage below.

We made our reservations through Open Table...first time we'd used it and it worked great. We knew the cost of the buffet prior to making arrangements, and since we were celebrating, we wanted to make this dinner not just a meal but a memorable event. The food was very good and perfect for our family's special occasion. The waiter took... More

We booked through Open Tablea month before we went. On request we asked for a seat with a good view at the window as we were travelling from Australia and it was our wedding anniversary. Upon arrival our reservation was all set, and we got a great window seat with the most beautiful views. The atmosphere isn't really for small... More
