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

Lovely atmosphere along with good service and food. I wish we could have been there a little later though ... the sun was in our eyes and a bit hot plus I would have loved to see the view at night!

We ate dinner here and requested (and received) a window seat . We had a stunning view of the cathedral and Temple Square. The food was good and the desserts were excellent.

The view is fantastic. A single fresh red rose is on your table! The large picture windows put you at eye-level to the top of The Temple and The Utah State Capital building-- deceitfully make you think you can reach out and touch the outside of either building! Every table has a good view; easy to take pictures at your... More

Gourmet food and all you can eat??? Almost never heard of. Make sure you are hungry when you go to this one and call ahead to ask for a window seat (Although there really is not a bad seat here). Overlooking the temple at night is so very scenic, You may want to arrive later rather than earlier as the... More

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.
