“We Saved the Best for Last”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

We waited until our last day (of 5 days) in Moab to eat at the Desert Bistro. Needless to say, it deserves its spot as the #1 rated restaurant in Moab. It is pricey but in this case, you get what you pay for. Service was exceptional. Everything we had was wonderful - bread, chef complementary appetizer, main course and dessert. It is a must to experience this restaurant once!

“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Based upon TA reviews we chose the Desert Bistro for dinner last night. We were not disappointed. The food was great and the service was outstanding. This restaurant is on the expensive side but was definitely worth it.
