Food was very good, ambiance is great, and the waitress was delightful. I would suggest creating a cocktail menu, they had an extensive wine list, but cocktails were foreign to the bartender.

Switchback is a good, reliable restaurant. It has a really beautiful room, with high ceilings and huge windows looking at large red rock mountains. Stunning really. The service is excellent and the food is good. The prices are high, but it's a reliable menu. We ate there twice and were happy both times.

We were very lucky to get a table as there was a queue forming. We were given a table beside the window so we could watch the sun setting over the mountain sides. The decor was excellent and the floral displays were beautiful. The service was superb. We were warned by our tour director that this restaurant was in a... More

We arrived to Springdale rather late, and many places were already closed, so we ended up here. The food was reasonably good, service was quick (we were just about the only ones there, though), and ambiance was inviting. However, there was nothing there to justify the prices, which would seem high even in midtown Manhattan.

We were really looking forward to eating here as our tour director had told us how good it was. Things did not start well, we were seated at the back of the restaurant which was rather dark with blinds pulled down over the windows. No - we couldn't have another table - they were all booked. I ordered their signature... More

We ate here our first night in Zion. Excellent food, excellent service! I had the pork tenderloin. It was wonderful but the creamed corn side dish was spectacular - in France that one dish would merit a star in the famous guidebook! The dinner Cobb salad was loaded with seafood, the trout was great, according to the others in my... More

One of the few restaurants to stay open late in Springdale, which was convenient, as we only came back late from visiting Zion National Park. We were served rather quickly, and the dishes were very nicely presented. Neither of our dishes were greasy either, a welcome change compared to many other restaurants. The food itself was very tasty, although my... More

The Switchback’s prices are upper class and thus, the food and wine should reflect this price level. While the steak and mixed vegetables were very good, it was the most expensive steak I had during my month-long trip through Arizona and Utah. The reason I write this review is the red wine Malbec from Mendoza, Argentina which was warm and... More

Nice breakfast buffet with made to order omelets. You will definitely get your fill before starting your day. Go early, it can get busy.
