“Classy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

view was amazing!! buffet spread didnt have a wide variety, but the food was amazing.. lots and lots of mouth watering desserts.. coupled with amazing service and drinks, it was one night to remember..

btw, its located at the 10th floor of the joseph-smith memorial bulding.. the carpark on south temple to city creek centre leads to the building.. :) took a very long time to find the place..

“You definitley will not leave hungry.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

I see lots of people that eat here attack the salad bar early then are full when it is time for dessert. It is a buffet so go for the good items first. Prime rib, shrimp, pastas to begin. Then seconds of course. Then go for the desserts. If you still want a salad it will be there at the end. So many choices and the food tastes very good. Great view of Temple Square as well.
I would recommend reservations (book in advance) especially around December and try to get a window seat.

“The buffet is amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The food was amazing.... too good as a matter of fact! Each station outdid the previous one. Salad, soup, and carving stations were very impressive. Unfortunately, the dessert station was the best! It's a little pricey, but we felt it was well worth it. The view is gorgeous.

“They never disappoint!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

I love every change I have to eat at The Roof Restaurant. The scenery from anywhere in the restaurant is beautiful. The food is great! I especially loved the soup stations, carving stations, & dessert stations. The staff are also very helpful. Bryce greeted us as we entered the restaurant & took our bags & coats to lighten our load as we enjoyed our dining experience.

“Outstanding for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We were exploring the Temple Square area and needed to get out of the rain. This elegant restaurant provided great, cheerful service and a varied menu to please both large and small appetites. Innovative and tasty. Marvelous views of the city and Mormon temple. No caffeine available, but herbal teas provide a satisfying warm beverage.
