“You want us to gather on your terrace to sing a song, have a glass of wine, the three of us?”

-Justine, Melancholia [2011]

Al fresco, all day. Well, at least during patio season. Patio dining in Salt Lake City during the summer is always a special treat. From rooftop patios, to converted alleyways, to real outdoor dining in the mountains surrounded by green and beautiful views, yes, we love to dine on the best patios in Salt Lake City. Outdoor dining connects us to the food in some special way. It’s elemental. And experiencing outdoor dining on Salt Lake City’s best patios is the only way to really enjoy the summer.

For our best patios in Salt Lake City list, we have scoured every patio dining option available. This list is broken into two parts: the best patio dining in Salt Lake City and the best bar patios in Salt Lake City. We also have a separate list available for the best dog friendly patios in Salt Lake City so be sure to check that out as well.

I’ll be honest, this best patios list took me way longer to put together than I thought. It’s as comprehensive as I could make it. But if I happened to miss your favorite outdoor dining option in SLC, please let us know in the comments below so we can add it!
