From start to finish, a perfect evening dinner at Bambara in the Hotel Monaco. One of my girlfriends and I enjoyed catching up over a 4 hour dinner and our server, Branden could not have been more of a gracious host. We never felt hurried,...More

I tend to leave Bambara thinking it was a bit pricey but very good. It's a great place for a business lunch. Not too loud and not too quiet. For dinner it would not be described as romantic but a good place for an upscale...More

Following a family reunion of sorts, we wanted a nice “farewell” lunch before heading our own ways. We found Bambara and loved our brunch. I highly recommend Bambara for food, excellent service and atmosphere.

Everything I tried here was great. Great appetizers, (did think they could do a nice bread or something though, instead of the homemade potato chips), great entrees and sides. This is a little on the higher side price wise for SLC, but I would definitely...More

Most restaurants were closing at 9 p.m. on a Tuesday night, and we were happy to find the good reviews for Bambara, which closed at 10. Service was good, though I sense the server wasn't delighted that we stayed until 10:15. Portions were right-sized, delicately...More

Yes 15-35 is right but we had 25-35 dinners and they were awesome. Food there is outstanding and salads are best I ever had.
