I ordered a salad and since I am gluten free, I asked for it with no croutons, and was assured it would be gluten free. When it came out, the salad had croutons. (Not an uncommon mistake.). I sent it back. It was returned in only 1-2 minutes, and still had some croutons on it, which indicated to me they... More

We have enjoyed every experience we've had at Xetava. We bring out of town guests here always and they too rave about the red rock setting, unique atmosphere, friendly staff and most especially the wonderful cuisine. Locally sourced and organic foods are important to us. We're so grateful for such a scrumptious place to dine in beautiful Ivins, UT.

The coffee was fine, but I have never been treated more rudely in any coffee shop. We missed the please wait to be seated sign, which was present but inconspicuous, and sat down. We were told by the waitress to return to the front to be properly seated, which we did. We were then told that if all we wanted... More

Hi Bonnie, Thanks for taking the time to write about your experience. After reading your review, I’m not sure I understand why you were treated poorly.

We've eaten here a couple of times. Nice patio area. Food and service was great. Nice little day out for couples. Visit the art shops next door and enjoy the amazing views.

Great food in a beautiful location. A bit remote, but well worth the drive. They know how to mix their flavors here, and the atmosphere is very relaxing.

Every option - organic, vegetarian, vegan and gluten free selections on the menu. The roast beef sandwich that I had was excellent. Generous portions of beef. A full meal by itself.

The drive to Kayenta is breath-taking. Xetava Gardens Café is a neat place surrounded by the beautiful red rocks. I had a burger that was huge and delicious. The service was fine. Nice experience, but a little pricey.

Have eaten here many times. It's in a very special place and the food and service are both outstanding. Interesting and eclectic menu. Love the mushrooms and the beet salad. Burgers are great. Be sure to check out the art galleries - but that's probably why you went to Kayenta in the first place.

Excellent food, choice of beverages and superb service. The decor is outstanding! The scenery unbeatable. Located in the Kayenta Arts Village makes it a hub for travelers, most interesting locals and fun staff. Breakfasts are truly memorable.
