This restaurant would be a regular if we lived in Long Beach. Matthew was our server and a great sense of pace. My wife had the kale salad with salmon. I had the soup of the day which was shiitake mushroom in a cream base. It was great. I also had the linguine with sun dried tomatoes and artichokes. It was great. This was a half portion of the dinner portion and discounted a bit. It was a nice touch. We ate outdoors. The restaurant has installed landscaping that screens the outdoor seating from the street which made our lunch delightful on a winter California day.

If you want to be treated like Kings and Queens, this is the place to eat. We have been coming here many years. The chef's special is always fantastic, which is made with the seasonal fare. The regular menu is also wonderful. The service is special as the wait staff makes you feel special. All your needs are met. There is now eating outside as well as inside. Great on a good weather evening. The wine list has quite a selection. Not to be missed.

We had a delicious dinner on Christmas Eve at Utopia. The service was divine and the prices were reasonable. I've been there for lunch before and they have outdoor dining too. Check it out!

We love the specialty wine dinners for an impromptu celebration, also its a place to meet people outside of Long Beach for dinner. The menu has something for everyone's tastes. Food is always consistent and the wait staff is excellent.

For a first class dining experience, Utopia is the place! The service is impeccable, the artsy ambiance is comfortable and upbeat, and the gourmet cuisine is outstanding. I am gluten free, and it's never a problem for them to cater to my needs and produce delicious alternatives when necessary. I chose Utopia for my birthday wine pairing dinner party for 50 people and it was faaabulous! My family and friends raved about it! We have also enjoyed attending their regular wine pairing dinners, complete with commentary by the winemakers. The owners, Kamran & Emir, are welcoming, hospitable and very accommodating. For special occasions and/or when it's time to treat yourself to an unforgettable dining experience, Utopia is the place!
