“The service was great at Sonora, but was disappointed that there regular lunch menu was replaced by the 2 course for $10 on lunch or dinner menu with no other options. Tried the chicken poblano and though it came out fast there was issues. The chicken though drenched in spicy green sauce that was delicious, the chicken it self was dry and the rice underneath under cooked that i thought i had gotten bone in the dish. The desert which was the coconut flan though was very flavorful.”
“Awesome place, great food and service. Place is a bit loud but other than that perfect.”
“Awesome Bangers and Mash.”
“Union Grill is a solid choice for eating out, especially with a group of friends. They have a varied menu from which everyone can find something they like. I got the mozzarella sandwich and it was delicious, along with a Rooster's Niner Bock from their full bar. Would recommend!”
“Union Grill was so much better at the Union Station. Service and food suffer greatly now.”
“Delicious dinner menu”
“I don't think the Angry Goat was prepared for Restaurant week. They had several tables open but only two servers to handle customers that there were several people waiting. We sat at the bar to try and expedite our lunch. I had the pot roast which was very tough, I was hoping for the ‘fall apart’ kind of pot roast. My companion had the chicken sandwich which ended up being under cooked. The bread pudding for dessert was a bit cold. Maybe the kitchen fell behind with the extra customers but they don't have to worry about us going back.”
“Very slow service, even when we were there as they opened with only 4 total tables to serve at the time.”
“Beau (owner) gives the perfect example of how a pub should run. Finally a place with high quality food, service, and drinks. I would go there every day if I could!”
“They ran out of prime rib and their berry cobbler was made completely with salt and no sugar. I guess the cook got mixed up?”
“The wait was not bad considering high school dances , I got the prime rib dinner, my wife got the pork chops it was awesome the amount of food we got for the price of $17 exceeded out expectation, the service was just great well informed of the special even though we already knew about...”
“No wait walked in and was seated.”
“Everything about Prairie Schooner was delightful. Great food, great service, and great atmosphere.”
“The food was fantastic and the portions were big enough to make another meal at home. Very helpful and friendly service.”
“Super slow service and food was cold. The desserts were amazing though.”
“The service was not great. Our server basically brought us all of the food and never stopped by the table again. Our waters remained unfilled for the entire dinner. The food was great, though! The pickles were interesting and tasty!”
“Amazing food and great value.”
“I love this place!”
“The place was packed, Keri the host was charming. The meal delicious. I wish this menu was available all year.”
“Looks like restaurant just starting out. More servers were needed when I ate dinner on 4/13. Food is good, service not so.”
“Went on 4-14-18 for dinner. Very disappointed in the service. The food was decent (C-). Only had one waitress serving the tables and running the bar. The table next to us was completely unorganized. Of about 8 people, 2 people got their entree's before they got their appetizers because they screwed our order up and had 2 extra entree's so they gave them to the other table. About 10 minutes later they got their appetizer's, By them the 2 people had finished their entree's. Then the rest got their entree's they screwed it up. We saw 2 couples leave because they were not helped. Sad and disappointing. Did go to Tona the day before (A+)!!!”
“Food was delicious, singer good but too loud, service disorganized and lacking.”
“Love that they have a soup and salad bar for a choice as an appetizer. Service was friendly and thorough. They had 2 different soups. Perfect portion and flavorful, quality food. The owner greeted us and we felt like we are registered regulars. Will be back.”
“The potato boats were amazing, but the pulled pork and ribs were meh. They were room temperature when they came to the table and the pork was very fatty. Good bbq sauce, though!”
“Fun place for good food at a reasonable price”
“It would have been nice if the server acted like she was aware of Ogden Restaurant Week. We actually had to refresh her memory of what the week was called and show her on the menu insert that it was not dessert week, as she called it. Initially, she was eager to start identifying the day's specials. After the specials were identified, we told her that we knew what we wanted from the Restaurant Week special insert. There was an immediate change of approach to us, as if we were insufficient at that moment. Not that I care, but she never once come back to our table to ask how the food was. We drank water because there was no request if we wanted something other than water. If Ogden Restaurant Week is to be taken serious, it starts with the restaurants and their staff to take advantage of the combined marketing opportunity. I hope others have had great experiences, but Zucca was an experience that let us know we do not want to go back. I’m the type of person that is more than happy with paper napkins and an easy going atmosphere. Zucca appeared to be a classy establishment that fell short on taking Restaurant week serious and didn’t care to receive patrons trying to expand eating options.”
“Always good food at this restaurant.”
“The didn't even know it was restaurant week.”
“Server Paul was very good and didn’t rush us out. The won ton wrap with a wedge salad was just great-so flavorful!”
“Service took forever and food was just okay.”
“Best BBQ in Utah!”
