Nice special occasion place

vip
Dined on April 7, 2016

Went with family for a night out. Nice restaurant, decent wine list, food was very good. Good sized menu. Our server I think was a bit new, but she did a good job, just not quite polished yet. The same can be said for the food. Very good, but just not quite stand out. And that I think was our major issue. Everything was good, but for the price you expect just a little more creativity. That being said, if you are looking for a nice special occasion place that is "safe" to bring almost anyone with almost any taste in food, this is an excellent choice. The tried and true done well!

Celebrated a birthday here with a special lunch. Very nice staff and wonderful service. The building has an art-deco vibe and was comfortable and warm, even on a rainy/snowy day. Also, free valet parking is a plus. The lunch hour was not crowded at all. Food was fantastic and fresh.

Old line, traditional place

Dined on March 6, 2016

Food and service are old school but quite good. An awful surprise was bread with large chunks of garlic baked in -- tasted horrible. Because it is an old building, and downstairs, it tends to be dark and a bit creaky. There is an unpleasant odor - water based - when one descends the stairs and enters the lobby. I've noticed it before. It is a good place for formal dinners with associates or special occasions.

Beautiful space and food--ambiance slipping?

Dined on February 24, 2016

I have been coming to the New Yorker for years, since it was a private club. This is one of my go-to spots for a special occasion meal. My recent visit didn't disappoint--the space was beautiful as always, service was attentive, and our meal, including salads, entrees, dessert, and drinks was excellent. Menu standards are consistently delicious and well presented. One disappointing note to an otherwise lovely evening was the low standard of dress of other patrons. I think of the New Yorker as an upscale restaurant, and was confused to see diners in jeans, t-shirts, and even a baseball cap at the table. More than one table included diners in such attire. I know Utah isn't typically a very formal place, but I think the low standard detracted significantly from the experience. Shame.

Valentines Weekend

Dined on February 14, 2016

We have been here twice now, the food is always really good. I had the filet mignon which came with broccoli rabe and mashed potatoes. The steak and broccoli were amazing. The potatoes could have had better texture and flavor. My husband got the New York Strip. He loved it and the cheesy au gratin style potatoes were delicious. My only complaints about the food...they try to make their butter look fancy and it comes out hard as a rock. We had to wait a while to be able to even put it on our bread. We also got the creamy crab and corn soup. It tasted a bit fishy for my taste, too much like clam chowder. The consistency was great. Also, for Valentines it wasn't as romantic and intimate as I was expecting. The last time we came it seemed pretty dim, quiet, romantic. This time we were seated next to a large group and the lights were much brighter. It was a little disappointing that it wasn't as intimate as I remember.

Newyorker Was Fantastic!

Dined on February 13, 2016

I made reservations for my wife and I to celebrate Valentine's Day at the NewYorker. I asked around an did some online research for nice fine dinning places that would be worth 40-50 bucs a meal. The Newyorker was the repeated restaurant that I kept hearing so I made the decision to give it a try. My wife and I were not disappointed. My wife and I are restaurant and food snobs. We expect the service to be professional and the food to be exceptional. My expectations were absolutely met. The food at the Newyorker was phenomenal and the service was close to perfection. The restaurant decor was fitting for Valentine's Day. My wife and I will absolutely be returning to the Newyorker soon with empty stomachs!

Our Annual Valentine's Dinner

Dined on February 13, 2016

Going to the New Yorker for a romantic dinner on or around Valentine's Day has been our tradition for the last 10 years, or so. We love it and look forward to next year as soon as we leave every year. The service, ambience, food and cocktails are are always first class. This year was no exception. We shared the Duck Confit with several appetizers and it was all amazing; as always. Looking forward to next year and to seeing what delectable options will be offered.

A restaurant for a (very) special occasion

Dined on January 22, 2016

Definitely a special occasion place - whether it be a romantic thing, or your grandmothers birthday, or whether it's a place where you need to impress whomever you feel you need to impress. Service was excellent (thank you Blythe for your knowledge of the dishes and the wine list!), the wine list expansive (although somewhat expensive), the food very well prepared and equally well presented ! The below street level restaurant is not obviously wheelchair accessible, but is otherwise accessed quite easily. The interior decor smacks of 90's elegance (1990's, not 1890's), but it is not at all unappealing, and should you feel the need to entertain a large group, the restaurant has some larger private rooms. Valet parking is a pretty good deal at $5 - but beware - when the restaurant closes, not unreasonably, the car parking guys go home!

Was a favorite, not anymore.

Dined on January 17, 2016

Have dined here many times, but this time was different. To begin with the drink my wife usually has was no longer on the menu and the bartender nor wait staff could remember or look it up even though we knew most of the ingredients. It had been on the menu for 2-3 years at least. Second disappointment was that the menu had seafood on nearly every item, only ONE dish was chicken and it had prawns on it (which we asked to omit). The stakes are WAY TO BIG for the average appetite 3/4 lb each (12oz) which made them even more expensive in an already $$$$ restaurant. We won't be back, as we usually eat lighter fares and there was little in that area that wasn't either a huge overpriced portion or seafood. Their menu use to have more of a steak restaurant fare. Now it is just a higher priced annex to their sister restaurant Market Street. Even they usually have a better selection of non-seafood items. This is now the 2nd restaurant which we use to frequent that we won't be going to (the other was the Metropolitan which closed a few years ago) and have to search for another.

We eat here about four times a year. Usually when we have guests in town who appreciate fine dining. The food is very good to excellent and the waiters/waitresses do an amazing job. There is no corkage fee (that means if you bring a bottle of wine from home they do not charge you, some restaurants charge up $20 a bottle). I would like them to expand their menu to include one additional entree in each category, eg fish, pasta and meat. I like variety and this size restaurant would be able to handle it, that said everything I have ever had at the New Yorker has been excellent.

Disappointing; Not the Same New Yorker

Dined on January 1, 2016

Arrived 5 minutes early for our reservation. Was seated next to a large group with our tables so close, even the staff couldn't squeeze between the tables. I requested to be moved to one of the other 1/2 dozen vacant tables. Received a snide remark from the employee filling our water that they are all taken and would see what she could do. She never returned. Then our server arrived. In hind site, I wish we had ordered our starters, rounds of drinks, and our entree at that time, as we rarely saw her again. There was no desire to increase our tab that evening. The only saving grace was our meals were very good are I felt the price paid for the meals was fair. However, I will not return. Just as with the other Gastronomy restaurants, service has nose dived over the years. There are just too many other great restaurants in SLC where service is still important. Good luck New Yorker...with the service we received and if that is par for everyone else, I am sure another good restaurants with top notch service will occupy your space soon.

Overall this was a good restaurant. There were just a few glitches. We ordered one dozen shrimp and received ten shrimp cocktail. We ordered the steak medium and most of it was cooked medium-rare. The waitress was terrific. The food was delicious. It was a romantic restaurant for a birthday dinner.

Excellent service. The entire staff was very attentive to every detail, from checking my coat, to seeing my wife drop her cloth napkin on the floor only to have a staff person come over to our table to give my wife a new napkin (and took the other away), to getting our billed paid in a timely manner, to the staff being impeccably dressed. It all made for a great dining experience. This is a first class restaurant that rivals Boulevard in San Francisco.
