The Wild Rose offers a very nice menu in a somewhat upscale setting. The restaurant has several dining areas, including a banquet room separated by a slick blue glass sliding wall, and an outside patio. We found the interior to be attractive, modern, and welcoming. The ceilings are very high (which helps with noise), the lighting is good, and tables are covered with white table cloths, so it did not feel stark to us.

We were there on a weeknight. We had reservations, but we didn't need them. Restaurant was about 30% full. They were slightly understaffed, but the servers did a nice job. Wisely, carafes of water are set on your table, so no need to be waiting for water service (and no annoying interruptions; I wish more places would do this). We never had to ask for silverware or extra plates for sharing -- servers were well-trained.

The menu is nice. It's not overly huge, but there are some interesting twists to the dishes and it's always a good sign when there is pork belly, properly prepared which ours was. Wine list is fine and there's a full bar. Biggest hits were the pork belly and scallop appetizers and the shrimp scampi. Coffee was good.

So overall, a very nice option for a date night (this is not a place for kids) with some items that are fit for foodies but still plenty of meat and potatoes type of dishes as well. Definitely recommend.

Note: It is VERY hard to find. Two of our nav systems failed to even recognize the street it is purported to be on. We failed to find it the first time we looked. The second time we wound up calling the restaurant. Technically it's at the intersection of Bangerter Rd and 11400, but it is set back on a mall "street," not facing the roads. To find it, look for Canyon Bicycles, which is visible from W 11400 S as well as from the connecting street, S 3770 W. Wild Rose is around the corner from Canyon Bicycles.

Good food, good service, good wine.
Prices are appropriate for the food but not the atmosphere.

My husband read some reviews about The Wild Rose and decided to surprise me taking our family there to celebrate my birthday. What a night ! This is one of those restaurants that you don't enjoy just the food - the whole experience is a special event. Although the tables are set for couples (if you have a large group, call in advance to make special arrangements), small families can fit relatively well on the 4 sit-tables. The service: it stands out from other places. You sense NO one rushing you or/and being impatient with your questions about the menu. Very caring, very thoughtful people (the waitress even got a way to the chef make an apple puree just for my husband to eat with his pork chops). We decided to order a bottle with their home-made lemonade. Incredibly tasty. Nothing compared to those artificial, overloaded with sugar drinks we find at the other restaurants... If you like fish, try the Hawaiian Mahi-Mahi. I had a blast ! The kids had steak and I wish I could have taken pictures of their faces... they seemed to be in a sort of gastronomic nirvana. My husband and I were SO pleased that we went back the next week, for a date. And YES, you can ask for more of the GREEN APPLE SORBET that they serve between courses to "clean your palate". Great experience. Pricey, but 100% worthy!

This restraunt is in the shopping area and you would never expect to find such a cozy little place. They placed some great music while we dined and we loved the whole experience. The food was great and they give you a little palate cleanser before your meal ours happened to be green apple that evening.
the building is very modern and new and we enjoyed our dinner and plan on going again. Enjoy!
