We had a late lunch, so it wasn't busy, and we sat at a window table, with great views of Temple Square, the City and the mountains in the distance.
The food and service were good, albeit a little expensive compared to other restaurants with no view.

Had lunch here at the end of a tour of Temple Square. It was a warm day, and it was wonderfully cool inside. We were seated at the time promised, and next to a window with a great view. Had the hamburger on sourdough meal, and it was HUGE and very delicious! Loved the fries with fry sauce. The service was good, and they made sure our glasses never got empty. Highly recommended!

The view is absolutely terrific on the 10th floor of the building large Windows overlooking the city menu items at 11 to $25. But very tasty and well-presented remember to park downstairs in the underground parking for free validation much easier than trying to walk and find a spot on the street

We had the raspberry and chicken salad. I especially liked the glazed walnuts and feta cheese in my salad. This was a good size salad with ample chicken on it. The freshly baked rolls were also very good. The view over Temple Square was fantastic. This restaurant is located next door to Temple Square in what was formerly the lavish Hotel Utah. It is now administrative offices for the Mormon Church. As an extra attraction on the main floor lavish lobby a young lady was playing popular tunes on her violin. This was a welcome rest on a very hot day. I am not sure how often this occurs.
