5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

The food is great, so is the view. Great for a girls day or even a romantic evening out. Lots of food choices.

“Best buffet in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

The food was excellent, for a buffet. The desserts are fantastic, and the view is amazing. Expensive, yes. Worth a visit once or twice a year.

“Go for the desserts and views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012 via mobile

The desserts and views are the reason I go here. Definitely worth going when visiting SLC or special occasions.

“Excellent views and Amazing food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

Don't be turned away when I say that this is a buffet. It is the most gourmet buffet you will find in the city. The service is amazing, and the food is even better! What they are most famous for, however, is their dessert. It's not very often that eclairs are at the bottom of the list of delicious desserts, but somehow The Roof Restaurant has made this happen. Their creme brule is the best I have ever had! Well worth the $39 per plate. The price includes complementary soft drinks, specialty drinks are extra (The Roof does not serve alcoholic beverages).

“Five stars all around!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012 via mobile

This place has fantastic food, wonderful atmosphere and amazing piano talent. Have loved going here for over ten years now! Only one warning... You'd better go when you're hungry! And leave some room for dessert...
