Salt Lake City restaurant reviews

Our complete archive of Salt Lake City restaurant reviews. This list contains every restaurant review published here on Gastronomic SLC, or those written by our head writer Stuart on a freelance basis for The Salt Lake Tribue or The Utah Review. Restaurant reviews by their nature are ephemeral and mark only vague points in time. Chefs come and go, menus change, and seasons don’t fear the reaper. As such the reviews are ordered chronologically.

The older the review, take an increasingly larger pinch of salt…
