I attended a conference and was invited for dinner here with a group of colleagues. The view is fantastic - overlooking the Mormon Temple. This restaurant does not serve alcohol but has lots of tasty alcohol free drinks on the menu - I tried the cranberry orange juice combination. The service was great and dessert selection endless! Great buffet to serve all different culinary tastes.

If you are traveling from out of town, this restaurant does not serve alcohol. If you can get past that or you don't care, then keep on reading.

I went here for an anniversary dinner and the atmosphere is really romantic. The views of the SLC temple are wonderful. There was a live piano player, candlelight, and dark wooden furnishings.

I didn't particularly enjoy waiting for other people to get their food, however, I did enjoy that you can select and try many different things instead of just ordering 1 or 2 items off of a menu. There's an assortment of pasta, seafood, meats and unique dishes. The dessert bar is delicious and they have chocolate covered strawberries as well as an assortment of other sweet goodies.

At $39 a person, it's pricey for Salt Lake City. But the views are unbeatable, the food is high quality, the atmosphere is extremely nice, and it's buffet-style so eat as much as you want. It's a very popular restaurant for a reason. They take reservations, and you'll probably need them depending on when you go.
