I love Groupon and Living Social Deals. They tempt me with coupons that inspire me to try new restaurants. That is why on our anniversary, my husband and I were excited to try The Wild Grape Bistro in downtown Salt Lake City.
We had a creamy roasted pepper soup for an appetizer that had a nice zing to it. I ordered the Potatoes Gnochi with beef and mushrooms and my husband had the scallops. He was embarrassed to have me pull out my phone to take a picture of our beautifully plated food, and thus, no food pics for the blog.
The menu had a variety of flavored lemonades. I was tempted to ask what flavor went well with the beef, but held my tongue and chose the huckleberry.
Wow, my dinner was wonderful. The beef was tender and had a perfect flavor. My husband loved his scallops as well. They were tender, not chewy, and melted in your mouth. Although, I do believe that mine was the better of the selections, especially when complimented by a lovely red wine, I mean, huckleberry lemonade!
The decor was clean, modern, and tasteful. The prices were in the mid to high 20s for the entrees. Our bill came to $60 minus our coupon. So it was pricey for Salt Lake standards. A definite special occasion place. The only complaint I have was that it was loud, and I was quite cold seated by the window.
4.5 out of 5 stars.
