The Park Cafe

Reviewed By antonio_dta

We had only breakfast dishes and they were very good and simple; not simple like lacking flavor, but simple in the fact that they were your regular burritos, french toast and eggs; so you will not find anything special here, the burger looked really good though. The attention was good, and the price was very cheap.Only complaint is the wait time, the place is very busy so we waited ~45 minutes to be seated. We were in no rush so we decided to wait, was it worth it? Maybe not.

We only had one night in Salt Lake City and glad we chose pallets for our only dinner. Kind of rustic -industrial interior which works very well with the space, friendly staff, friendly patrons, great menu with lots of different things to try, great if you are an adventurous foodie. Great cocktail list too. Excellent experience, Would definitely recommend it and return.

5 star rating, 5 star hotelThe service was impeccable. From the moment I pulled up to the front and had my car valeted to check out I was treated like a princess. I came here for a business trip and was so excited to be staying somewhere so luxurious.Each night I would come back from a long day of standing on my feet to a packet of bath salts, a fresh robe, slippers & chocolate. Best way to end a busy work day! Bathroom was beautiful with a huge soaking tub & a glass door shower separate. There’s a vanity area inside the bathroom & also outside the bathroom doors. Bed was comfortable with different types of pillow perfect for anyone! Room service was top notch. They even folded all my dirty clothes and put them in a dirty laundry bag! In the room there’s a plant you can take home for a certain cost. You can order room service or there’s restaurant options. Light rail is right outside the hotel for easy transport. Valet onsite. Gym onsite. Spa onsite.What more could a business traveler ask for?!PS - free coffee and treats available in the lobby in the morning as well as water & cookies available during the day

We ended our southwestern national park travels in Salt Lake City and were delighted to discover the culinary treats and delicious wines at Eva’s, which was right on Main Street a couple of blocks from our hotel. After being a little vegetable-deprived, we very much enjoyed the excellent fried cauliflower in its special sauce, the grilled beets, the pork roll with cabbage and the featured spanakopita. Everything was prepared in an unusual and very tasty manner and we were able to share all the dishes until we could not eat more. The French rose as an accompaniment was perfect, wonderful service and fun vibe. We wish we had one of these in NYC near our apartment!

Who started the evening with a pair of appetizers along with some bubbly. We had crab cakes and a flatbread, awesome. We moved on to a 2 course dinner or each couple split the pasta with mushrooms and blue cheese. The second course was rack of lamb and one couple had the tempura shrimp. Both were perfectly cooked. The desserts were scrumptious, we had lava cake, a lemon desert, (unsure of the name and a goat cheese pudding. All were paired with great wines. The service was excellent and very attentive. Look forward to going again!
