“Beautiful Building”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

My friend and I visited this building to find one of the organs on the
Temple Campus. We found the inside of the building absolutely beautiful. There is a beatiful crystal chandelier on the main floor, along with a small cafe with lunches and snacks.

“Gorgeous building!”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

Be sure to walk around inside or just sit on the main floor and listen to the pianist play some calm, peaceful music. The movie ususally playing there has always been great and very touching. The views from the top, near the entrance to the Roof Restaurant, are beautiful!

“Do it!”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

Atop this beautiful building is the Roof Restaurant. With an overlook view of temple square, the state capitol, downtown Salt Lake City, a few clear to the Great Salt Lake. A wonderful buffet dinner with multiple entrees and more deserts than you can count is offered at an all inclusive price. One of our favorites for special occasions.
If you just want to gaze out the window on the East and West of the building there are observation windows outside the restaurant.
