“Delicious and imaginative food”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Chef uses game such as elk and bison in menu. There are also several vegan selections. Wine list is good when compared with others in the area. This is the best restaurant in the Moab area.

“Excellent”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Service and choice of food was excellent. We both had the Rack of Lamb and it was tasty and juicy and cooked to our liking. The tables are not crowded together and so you don't have that noisy atmosphere which we don't like and that you can have a quite chat without anyone listening.
A good choice of wine from mid price to expensive and overall a very good experience and one that we would repeat. You might have to save up to come here though

“Wonderful restaurant”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

We went to this great restaurant twice in three days when we were in Moab. We wanted to check out other restaurants but were so impressed with food, ambience and service that we returned rather than trying a new place. This review is later than I intended and I cannot remember for sure what I had for dinner. However, there were four of us and we all agreed that this was the finest restaurant that we ate in on our trip.

“Great Food and Lovely Restaurant”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

What a nice restaurant! We did make a reservation because we tried once to go there and they were booked. We enjoyed the pork dish and the ambiance. It is amazing that there are such good restaurants in Moab, Utah.

“The best in town”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I live here in Moab and I love to cook so, I really want the best dishes if my husband & I would like to eat out. The Desert Bistro is always our first priority according to their quality of food, services etc. Ahi tuna is our favorite dish here.
