Good Restaurant. I went to the Sugarhouse Dodo for the first time on a Saturday afternoon. The restaurant was busy, but I didn’t have to wait more than five minutes to be seated. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of food. I wouldn’t compare their food with that of fast food or diner food. I ordered the club sandwich with the caesar salad and for dessert I had the key lime pie. I was very happy with the food - it tasted good, and was plated well. I only gave three stars instead of four because the service was very slow and the waiter was a bit standoffish. I will be going back.
Manager Aaron should be fired. Bad service, service time too long and food on the fast food scale......not a nice dining experience, i was a bit embarrassed for my guests.....would not recommend as a nice place.They don't know to serve wine.Manager Aaron should be fired for lack of qualifications.The place is a terrible.
Awful awful service. I liked this place until I had to talk to a manager. Aaron is by far the most disrespectful, mean spirited, condescending person I have ever had the displeasure of talking to. I will NEVER go back to the Dodo in Sugarhouse because of the lack of respect given to me. Absolutely uncalled for.
Excellent food!. I have been going to the Dodo since they were on 9th East many years ago. I love their smoked turkey sandwich and the tollhouse pie is amazing! I have tried many items, and I am always happy. The service is generally very good, but I think it's better in Sugarhouse than at the Gateway location.
Lousiest service in town!. On a snowy day, two professinals were looking forward to a comfortable brunch in the sugar house neighborhood. Unfuturnately the manager did not acknowledge our existance nor did the wait staff which promulgated our egress from the establishment to a far better brunch at the Sugar House BBQ. Thanks but no thanks!
Best Turky Sandwich Anywhere.. My wife and I tried this restaurant last night before the jazz game. I was a little skeptical due to the bad reviews on this site but was pleasantly suprised, at least until the check came. We both had the turky sandwich with swiss. I was served less than five min after we ordered it and it was amazing. It was simple without tons of veggies and mayo which allowed the smoked turky to shine. The BBQ sauce it was served with was a little too tart for me and my wife wasn't a fan either. The creamy chicken noodle soup it was served with was excellent as well. You can really tell when a soup is made in house or shipped in. I had the white chocolate raspberry tart for desert and my wife had the popular Toll House pie. As good as the turky sandwiches were the deserts made the meal. Both were amazing and not too rich. The only down side to the meal was the $48 bill ( after tip). For two turky sandwiches and a couple pieces of pie it seemed a little high. We left happy and will be back.
Overrated and $$$. The food is OK, nothing special, but the price and attitude ruin the rest. Trendy rather than striving for quality.
Excellent place for a light lunch....

The appetizer was the Spinach/Artichoke Dip Quiche. It's a pie-shaped piece of artichoke dip topped with a light garlic mayo and served w/ crackers. Light and flavorful.
The entree was the Roasted Turkey Sandwich with BBQ dipping sauce. Bread was soft & fresh. Turkey was moist and smoky in flavor. BBQ sauce was tangy and had the perfect consistency. Servied with a small slice of cantaloupe and choice of soup or salad.
For dessert I had the Toll House Pie. It's a pie made w/ a cookie dough type filling. It wasn't too rich and had large chunks of chocolate and walnuts in it. Try it!
Portions were a little small for the price but the food was delicious. A great place for a light lunch while shopping at The Gateway. The Dodo has the feel of a French Bistro type restaurant.
Worst restaurant at the Gateway!. The ribeye steak was all grisle, and the crabmeat on top, tasted old. WAY over priced for a throw-a-way meal. If you want steak, go to Ruby River in Ogden. The beef tips on a bed of noodles were tasty enough, but stingy of meat for the price charged. The desserts are an embarassment. Frozen mud pie. What a joke! Want real desserts?; go to Red Butte Cafe, and get their Aztec Chocolate tart. If you want real food AND value, go to the Lion House instead. The best thing here: the exit sign!
Loyal customers flock to this eatery for its consistently good soup and sandwiches at lunchtime..
With spacious digs, this continental classic continues to please its loyal constituency with good food and adept service. Customers familiar with the restaurant's old location will recognize the dodo mural surrounded by a collection of aviary art. The patio is a pleasant place to dine in the warmer months.
You'll be hard pressed to find better made-from-scratch soups and sandwiches. The house-smoked turkey sandwich with barbecue dipping sauce is a must, while the ever-popular quiche of the day brings in the ladies who lunch. The artichoke pie appetizer with homemade lemon aioli, and scrumptious desserts are worth a trip or three to this casually elegant place. For entrees, the filet mignon atop a garlicy baguette is a good choice.The Sunday brunch menu includes several omelets and other egg dishes, as well as French toast.
