This restaurant stinks! – I don't know why anyone recommends this restaurant. I thought the food was terrible! The chef's philosophy seems to be that adding more salt makes everything taste better. And the staff is really stuck up. Or at least they come across that way because of how uptight they seem to be, even when they're attempting to be friendly to you. They might be forgiven for that, because I can't imagine they are making much money. When we ate there it was a ghost town. I like eating at restaurants where there are at least as many patrons as there are employees. Being one of the only two tables in that huge space makes you feel like you're eating in a morgue. That place is d-e-a-d. If you want to eat at the Gateway, do yourself a favor and go to the South end where you'll actually see other diners, and get better food anyway.
A little piece of San Fran class in Salt Lake! – It's not often that you get treated like a VIP on your first trip to a brand new restaurant, but I want to thank Butterfly giving my entire group an awesome night out! Friendly, beautiful and knowlegable staff are hard to find these days and Butterfly has them all (without the snobby attitude of other fine dining places). The dishes are perfectly proportioned with an eclectic asian flair - a truly unique experience in Salt Lake City - with excellent attention to presentation and unique flavor combinations. This restaurant is a must try (and it will probably become your new favorite too!)
From Excitement to Dissapointment – I spent last evening at the Butterfly with a few friends, excited to try something different from the usual. It was a nice evening, but I was extreemly disappointed with the attitude and service we recieved. The food was good but for the prices we paid, well, I have seen a whole lot better at other restaurants in Salt Lake. I try to get a feel for the dining options in town since it helps out with my line of work, but I definately won't be recomending the Butterfly to any of my customers any time soon. Simply put, there are other places I can go to get a great meal and an enjoyable evening on half the price with none of the attitude.
The best new restaurant in Salt Lake City – First off, I would like to thank Robert Soviero.
Last night I went to dinner with friends at the Butterfly. I have been there before, and have been recomending and taking people since. I try something new every time we go. Last night I had a light dinner. The Cappuccino Mushroom Soup. But we all sampled each others food. Everything was great. Value is amazing for the quality. Most items between $15.00-$25.00.
Then to top it all off. Robert a personal friend gave us tickets to the sold out James Blunt show. The concert was amazing. Live video mixing, superb sound quality.
It was a great night.
Call and make a reservation.
Say hello to Robert Soviero. Catch one of the Headliners. You wont be disapointed
It's About Time Salt Lake! – Let's face it, we live in a city with limited dining scenes. Nondescript experiences with menus an atmospheres leaving us desperately unfullfilled. Until now. Butterfly, located in a perfect historical downtown depot setting, is truly a dining delight from start to finish. The appetizers are unique, starting with the sesame edamame, oyster shooters, lettuce wraps, mushroom capuccino and beyond. Plenty to begin with for sure, but don't go too big too fast, as the best is still ahead. The entree's are one of a kind for our fair city. Where else can you get an entire fish (appropriately named on the menu as Wholefish) served in it's entirety with enough flavor that your complete party will need and want to try. The environment, service, private membership status and bar lobby are all compliments to what will soon be the marquis and premier restaurant in downtown Salt Lake City.
Am I really in Utah – I travel between New York and San Francisco for work and survive by seeking out
worthwhile resturants. I found Butterfly (Salt Lake) on a recent skiing trip to Utah
and was blown away by the service and unbelievabe food.This place could be in any
large metropolitan city and be amoung the best.
You have to have the Whole fish with bok choy.
Butterfly changes the scene – This place has it all. the restaurant is beautifual to look at and the food is amazing. I love the Hangar Steak and the filet is the best I have had. Butterfly gives Salt Lake a big city feel without the big city attitude. you should try it as soon as you can!
Salt Lake has a great new restaurant! – This is what we have been waiting for. Not only is butterfly a great restaurant by Salt Lake standards, it is great restaurant by any standard. I have been there about five times since i heard about it. The food is incredibly creative and well presented both on the plate and by the waiters. The wine list is made up of boutique wines some of which I had never heard of and was delighted to try. I really liked the portion sizes as well. sometimes i feel like restaurants try to make up for mediocre food by giving you a huge amount of it. The service is amazing and efficient. This place is great. Do yourself a favor and check it out.
A True Rip Off – My girlfriend and I went for Valentines Day and never have we been so disappointed in a meal and on top of that we were literally robbed. It was a JOKE ... $75 a person and the four appetizers amounted to one mouthful each. THE SALAD CAME IN A SPOON ... YES! A SPOON! A Reese's Peanut Butter Cup was bigger and tastier than the chocolate mousse. Never will I ever allow myself to be so ripped off by going there again.
My new favorite SLC restaurant! – I'm thrilled to see a new, hip restaurant come to SLC. I've been several times and I have not been disappointed. I love the look and feel; the food is great - the way the dishes are prepared are unique and delicious; and I can't say enough good about the service. The staff is as friendly and approachable as you want them to be. They're very attentive. Basically, this will be my favorite restaurant and favorite place to sit at the bar and have drinks and appetizers.
