We had a beautiful dinner at Utopia recently. The food was absolutely amazing, perfectly prepared and presented. Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful when we were choosing. We tried a wide range off the menu; seafood, lamb, beef and chicken, and each dish was delicious. The restaurant isn't large and has an intimate feel to it. This would make... More

I enjoyed this place though it was nearly empty when we visited. The food was good and the beer (in bottles) was very good. The art on the walls was nice as well.
