It's wonderful to have a restaurant nearby with great food, great service, and great ambiance. My wife and I are going twice this week to the Wild Rose. Periodically we need the high end restaurant experience. It's restful and stress relieving to let someone else do the work required to present a delicious meal. It's great to know the food will be consistently excellent. As "fast food" has become what's readily available, it's fabulous to find a significantly better alternative. I'd rather eat at home than eat "fast food". But the Wild Rose Restaurant can easily coax me away from the drudgery of preparing my own meal.

Stayed over an hour later than closing, never once was told, we would have never known minus all the tables and chairs being put away. Waitress spilled glass of wine on table, slow to get food. One steak dish very overcooked, was sent back and done right, but no discount for the wait again.

About the restaurant
Yuta was the name the Ute Indians called the area and themselves, meaning "mountain top" or "people who live high is the mountains." Legend has it, when Spanish explorers arrived and asked the natives what this area was called, they were told "YUTA." Its mountains have seen many cultures pass through or inhabit, starting with the Uto-Aztecan Native Americans; then, the Utes. As US western expansion continued, more cultures moved through the area – from as far away as Eastern Europe and China. Drawing on all of these cultures, we are defining a regional cuisine true to Utah, featuring a wood-burning hearth, and with Lynsey Gammon, our Blue Sky farmer who uses the ultimate in organic farming practices.

Alex, our server, was so kind, patient and hard working for us and all of his tables! We loved the ability to create your own breakfast plate and the prices were very very reasonable. We will definitely go back there to try dinner food and different cocktails!

The food was very good. Our server Brandon was great. The only issue we had was our main course was ready before our appetizer by quite a bit. Brandon apologized several times, but this was very poor planning on whoever was doing the cooking. We felt rushed because of this. If the courses had come out as planned I would have had another drink. Overall I'd go back but hopefully they'll get their timing better next time.
