We stopped in here for dinner on a busy weekend evening looking for a nicer alternative to the burger and Mexican places around town. The decor of the dining room is quite stunning with their huge timbers, large windows and high ceilings. Everything here is...More

Did not live up to reputation. Extremely pricey for the quality of the food. A$45 steak comes with absolutely nothing, no veggies, no starch, no extras. A bread bowl was so meager as to be laughable. Everything is a "side". This would not be too...More

This definitely felt like a hotel restaurant. It was nice to try something different in town, but I wouldn't make this a regular spot.

I didn’t expect much in Springdale, Utah (sorry, Utahns!), but this is an attentive fairly high end restaurant with a varied menu, good food and excellent service. Not cheap, but good value for the price.

This place knows how to plate beautifully. The scallop dish was beautiful with flowers and five large scallops. I had a special trout that was curved into a circle with the veggies inside- very cute.

We made our reservations for 3 on the same day. I made it through Open Table. We were there the week after the Forth of July. If the park is really busy you might have to make it a few days before. I hope that helps.

It is summer time and families are traveling. We visited in June and although it was busy, we were seated quickly. It is best to make reservations during Spring Break and summer.
