Worst food and most overrated restaurant in Salt Lake City. This restaurant is very expensive and has the worse food I have ever eaten. Aside from the house clam chowder, which is good, the house wine is boxed and the food is terrible. I paid $70.00 for two and I could have received better food in Wendover (and I hate Wendover). There was a long black hair laying on the end of our table which the waitress refused to acknowledge and the mixed seafood salad is gross. I am just warning everyone before they go here and spend an outrageous fortune. McGrath's Fish house tops this by 100% and is 1/2 the price. They don't even know what a lobster roll is. Don't waste your money.
Poor Service, Unsanitary conditions.
I was so badly disappointed with the food and service today at this Market Street location that I had to write a few words about it. I have been going to Gastronomy restaurants for over 20 years--what happened??
My husband and I had lunch--we ate at the bar but it took 20 minutes to get served a drink. I had a glass of red wine that must have been kept in a chiller--it was freezing. My husband ordered a sandwich with fries-the fries didn't come out with our lunch order and the waiter promised to retirieve them a soon as he could. Guess what-we were done eating and still no fries. Also, in the bar food prep area, the house salad that was being served came from a metal bin overflowing onto a dirty counter -- this was actually being served to patrons in the restaurant. No one in this food prep area was wearing gloves but handling food (bread, soup, salad, etc. I can only imagaine what the kitchen must be like. Sorry, there are so many other restaurant choices in the Salt Lake area - I will not be visiting a Market Street for a very long time.
A disappointment. The worst salmon and halibut I have had since I partook of the school lunch program in junior high. I would rather order fish sticks at McDonalds for a dfew bucks than pay the $120.00 (for four) last night.
HUGH DISAPPOINTMENT. What a disappointment! I've been eating at Gastronomy restaurants for many years and they have all gone down hill so bad... I've eaten there for the last time. My recent visit included a bottle of red wine too warm to drink, lobster served luke warm and king crab legs that had been boiled (water was dripping from them). The service was terrible although I don't think it was the waiter's fault. He seemed to be running from table to table. What used to be a truly memorable dining experience is now over priced, poorly cooked food with a disappointing menu. Many of the best dishes have been removed from the menu's, butter is served melted rather than over ice, and disinterested management are a few of the changes. This restaurant is way overpriced for the quality of food and service!
Cannot recommend, not a good value for the money. A large group of us went to MSB and ordered various dishes including Grilled Salmon, Seafood Salad, Crab Cakes etc. Although the ambiance was excellent, the service was slow and the food did not meet our expectations. My Seafood salad portion was too small, the crab cakes overcooked,and the Salmon lacked a smooth rich flavor to name a few examples. Unfortunately our meal started off with a lackluster serving of stuffed mushrooms. They tasted too greasy, didn't taste fresh, and lacked a good mixture of textures and flavors that one would expect. We wouldn't go back knowing we could have this same experience again.
DIRTY, RUDE SERVICE, FLIES DINING ON THE SALAD BAR WHO WERE ALSO IGNORED. First, my wife and I walked in and noticed that the same dumb hostess from Baci got transfered to the Broiler when Gastronomy closed and sold Baci. The place was packed on that Friday night. We found two spots at the bar, of which other people had just left. We sat there for 10-15 minutes waiting someone to clean the area so that we could lean our arms on was was a filthy bar. No one cleaned it, and no one even knew we were there. I could of cleaned out the cash register and no one would of cared. Then a bar waiter asked what he could get for us, and we had to tell him that we needed the bar cleaned, clean plates, clean silverware, clean napkins, and last but not least-menus. My wife asked for these items, and he threw three menus at her. Prior to this point, due to the filth in front of us, the flies that got to dine for free, and the bad service, I was ready to get out of there. One more thing--they even ignored the flies behind the counter dining at the salad station!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Upscale, outdoor dining. We hit this place at lunchtime - managed to get a table on the patio and had a delightful if not hurried experience. The food is fresh, tasty, expensive, the service average. The old firehouse atmosphere is unique and their display of counter items (fish, bread, desserts) was crowded but impressive. Eat here just a bit early for lunch and you'll have a more relaxing time.
Going downhill....a huge disappointment..
Service was poor, the server made a mistake and brought an incorrect dish. The correct one appeared very quickly....perhaps they no longer cook to order.
The manager was rude and unapologetic. A totally unpleasant experience.
Bad Attitudes Go Home!. Those who have nothing nice to say can stay away. Leaves more for the rest of us. The food is wonderful and I've never had bad service here. Waiters are willing to answer questions and work hard to make it enjoyable. Try the Grilled Halibut Oscar or the Macadamia Crusted Grouper. The clam chowder is excellent. For dessert, our favorite is the Zabaglione or the Raspberry Almond Torte. This place is one of our favorites.
Fresh fish and an outdoor patio make this a popular dining spot near the U..
During warm weather months, the appealing brick patio is typically full. It has an intimate and romantic feel even though it sits just off a busy street. There are a number of choices for seating--upstairs, outside, counter or first available. Unless you have time to burn, take the gamble and go for the first available. The renovated 1930s fire station offers cozy seating upstairs or an enormously long counter just inside the entrance.
The Broiler's claim to fame is that it does it right, time after time. Fish--whether fried, broiled, steamed, or baked, is always fresh and well-prepared. Try fresh Atlantic salmon with cucumber dill sauce or Maine lobster tails with scampi butter. Or choose from a variety of seafood pasta dishes and steaks.
