    Rated Salt Lake City's finest seafood restaurant, the Market Street Grill and Oyster Bar has been the unanimous favorite of locals and visitors from around the world, and has set the standard in Utah for fresh seafood for over thirty years. Daily fresh fish include salmon from Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, lobster from the shores of Maine, Ahi tuna from Hawaii, sole, halibut, oysters - the list of fresh seafood is endless. Bustling wait staff and exhibition kitchens contribute to a sparkling, high-energy atmosphere where the best seafood is served in an expansive variety of contemporary dishes, along with steaks and a delicious array of non-seafood choices.

    Our server name was Ali. She was on top of everything and we had a fairly with large group. I would highly recommend her. In fact, I enjoyed the lunch so much, I'm bringing my family and in-laws on Christmas Eve.

    I love the atmosphere especially at Christmas. It was very busy today and our server was quietly efficient-didn't give appearance of being rushed.

    Our server, Suli, could not explain the menu to us - when my wife asked what sides accompanied the duck (as these are not listed on the menu), she admitted that she did not know. She did not go check, She rambled for a few seconds and then guessed that it was probably rice and probably vegetables. She was more or less right but ... wow ... it was the opposite of 'upsell'. My wife decided to order the duck anyway and it was delicious and accompanied by an array of wonderful sides that could have been really easily talked up - sweet purple cabbage! - had the server known the menu contents. I asked Suli to explain what "Frizzled Leeks" were and she said they were sauteed. I thought this odd so I asked what the difference was between sauteed and frizzled and she said the leeks were just a bit crispier. That didn't make sense to me so I decided to pass on the disk with the leeks. I love leeks and am tempted by any dish with leeks on the menu but I instinctively felt wary because of her inability to explain what a simple Google search answered for me later in the evening. I presumed Suli to be new due to her ignorance of the menu - it's a large menu and it can take a while to gain familiarity with the contents of a large menu, but I know you typically place newer servers in the cafe, not the dining room - so I was surprised when she mentioned later in the evening that she had worked at your restaurant for two years. My wife and I dine at the New Yorker fairly regularly - it's our favourite restaurant in the city, by far, and you have some of the finest and most attentive servers in the city. Eric, Ali (Ally? sp?), Samuel are all first class servers - just delightful - and we love having any of them. You also have several really poor servers - Kitty, Suli and a couple of others whose names escape me. Your food is top notch and consistent. I wish the servers were as consistent. Your maitre d's are typically wonderful and give us such a warm welcome - tonight there was a casual greeting that made us feel as though we could be visiting any restaurant in the world. Your normal maitre d's make your diners feel as if they have walked into somewhere where they feel welcome, special and are about to have an "experience". We love that, and it was missing tonight. Hillary (I believe that's the name of the lovely maitre d' whom we typically see) gives us - and everyone - such a charming welcome that you walk to your seats feeling on cloud nine and happy before you've eaten a single bite of your food. Doesn't everybody's food taste a bit better after that? We skipped dessert tonight. I don't believe we've ever done that. The atmosphere wasn't there. One small point I should have mentioned long ago and never do because it seems so petty - please do something about the grooming of the bus boys. Their unkempt hair is a bit off-putting. I must emphasize - the New Yorker is the best restaurant in Salt Lake City. Our meal was excellent. The lamb was a little over-seasoned (Suli did not ask how our food was a t any point during the meal, so she would not know this) but otherwise our meal was perfect. we love the New Yorker and are passionate ambassadors for the restaurant, forever spreading the good word about the place & taking new people to dinner with us there - we bring friends, family and business associates with us to dinner all the time. we do that because the New Yorker is not just great but reliably great, so please understand my feedback is because we love the New Yorker.

    Menu has become very limited. Server never mentioned available specials. We heard it from other servers after we had ordered.
