I will be in SL in March with wife for a long weekend.

Were is a good place to take her out for dinner.

Will be staying at Grand America down town.

Don't want to drive a long ways.

Though I haven't been there myself, I have heard good things about Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and the restaurant in the Joseph Smith Memorial building (The Roof?)

Those are both pretty close to the Grand America. Within walking distance anyways.

If you want good food but maybe not so expensive, try PF Changs or Bucca di Beppo.

There is also a Ruby River Steakhouse fairly close to downtown... if you like steak.

There was a review in the Tribune recently on Ruth's Chris Steakhouse...


Market Street Grill is usually pretty good if you're into seafood.

I would like to second the Rodizio Grill at Trolley Square suggestion. We went there for my birthday last month. The food is AWESOME and it is not too ridiculously prices ($20 per person plus drinks). It's a 5-10 minute cab ride from the Grand America. Be sure to make reservations though, there can be up to an hour wait on weekends.

For a romantic dinner, I highly recommend The Melting Pot. They are a bit pricey, but less so than Ruth's Chris.

Here's a link to their site:

Rodizio Grill is tasty, but not very romantic. Noisy and lots of interruptions as they bring the meat around to your table.

Probably the best place in town right now (having been to all of those and a bunch others downtown in the last few months) is Flemings. They have the BEST steak in town. They sear it in UV at about 21600 degrees and then slow cook it. When you poke at a rare one it is like poking a water ballon it is so full of juices. Everything is served al' acart, and it can be pretty pricy. But worth every penny.

The Market Street Grill is always reliable, and is really good. I like the one down the valley myself.

The Silver Fork Inn is prett rustic & romantic at night (it is up Big Cottonwood Canyon, but worth the drive).

There are some great resturants up in the Park City area.

I would also recommend the Mandarin (it is just over the ridge in Bountiful, very much worth the drive, but can be busy).

Flemmings is good. Thaifoon was pretty good too. The Melting Pot was nice, but can be crowded and it takes a while (about 2 hours, including dessert).

For a more romantic dinner, try Tuscany. It's about 15 minutes from downtown SLC.
