YUM!!!! - Edit

This was our first time at Rawtopia and it was fantastic! We had the zucchini pasta, the sunflower seed/almond hummus appetizer and the vegetable sushi roll! Oh soooooo- delish!!! Sarah who waited on us was awesome.

The food was clean, creative and delicious. Can’t wait to come back!

Pros: unique , raw, cooked and meat (for a husband who’s fighting, Diverse options

Cons: expensive

Disappointed with high price. Also very salty. - Edit

I had the African stew which was tasty but should have been priced around $9-11. After paying $16 for a lunch and getting very thirsty from the high sodium content a bit later, I questioned whether I want to go back.

Outstanding - Edit

Outstanding. I was sitting there eating the appetizer wondering when I could come back. I seriously wanted to try everything on the menu. So fresh, healthy and filling! There are no bad choices and the place is lovely. The atmosphere is calm but full of happiness. The view is great and its clean lines make relaxing easy. I had the burrito, which is a lettuce wrap/cracker dip platter....you'll have to just get one to understand because I didn't take any time to get a picture. I wanted to have dessert, but alas, no room this time. The man had a chai tea thing made from some nut milk/non-dairy deliciousness.  I can't say enough good about this place. I left feeling happy and healthy. Best experience I've ever had at a restaurant like this.

Pros: Mostly Vegan options

Observations.. - Edit

I read the last person's review and of course it would be awesome if it were entirely plant-based; BUT! I looked at their menu online and the two items i found with animal products were a bison burger and a salmon dish, and about half the menu was still raw. I don't wish suffering upon any entity but i also feel plants are able to suffer and in my personal opinion, it is always best for a person to do what they feel they should in this life, and if you're going to eat animal products, salmon, honey, and bison are some of the healthiest choices. Why not see if the vegan food is just as good? I bet is made with just as much love as before!

Pros: Raw and Delicious Plant-Based Food, Healthy Animal-Based Food

Bad news - Edit

I am super sad to report that, when this restaurant reopens in its new location, not only will it no longer be raw, it will also no longer be vegan. Apparently since the owner is no longer vegan or raw, he will be serving meat.

They are supposed to still have some raw and vegan options, but we can't be assured as before that the energy of animal products being prepared and served in the same place will not be present.

A sad and disappointing transition from such a formerly fantastic and high-vibrational establishment.

Cons: No longer raw or veg

omarsrawtopia 04 Aug 2017 - We will have the exact same menu, but we are adding two new dishes for our dinner menu: wild Alaskan salmon, and grass fed bison. Saturdays and Sundays for brunch we will be serving local cage-free organic eggs, with the rest of our all vegan menu, no DAIRY.
We are also adding some cooked vegan dishes, coffee (w/ house made nut milk), cold pressed organic juices, local/organic beer/wine, all raw vegan ice-cream and desserts... I hope this helps, sorry to offend the Vegan community, but i wanted to have a place for everyone! Rawtopia prides in its dedication to provide the highest quality, organic, local, non-GMO, and gluten free products available and exclusively uses low temperature to preserve vital enzymes and nutrients. Cheers!!!!

Sy4127 16 Aug 2017 - Ah, man! I really loved this place. Not to say I wouldn't go there any longer, but I much rather support a business that has a full vegan menu. Dollars are just as good as ballots; my vote is definitely vegan. Oh well, there's still "buds!"

All vegan except honey - Edit

I've never been to raw place with so many options. The menu was huge and everything States it is made with "love"...which is too funny. The broccoli soup was fabulous and perfectly seasoned. Save room for dessert!

Pros: Huge menu, Everything made with"love"

Cons: honey

Sooo Delicious - Edit

I went to Rawtopia with a medium sized group of family, and everyone loved the food. We all left feeling healthier and more energized, even if our wallets felt quite a bit lighter as a result. The food was definitely worth the price, and the staff was very nice and helpful when it came to controlling and entertaining a toddler in our party. Although we had the option to sit inside, it was nice outside, so we sat on their quiet and peaceful patio.

Pros: Great food, nice staff, quiet outdoor seating

Cons: Pricey

I love Omar's! - Edit

Omar's is an intimate cafe, centrally located in Salt Lake's Sugarhouse district. Their delicious and creative dishes are all raw and organic. The Asia salad is one of my favourites! I always come away feeling satisfied, energized, and yet not over-stuffed.

Their beverages are fabulous, and very rich. Luckily, they provide half-servings which is perfect.

I've brought meat-eating friends with me, and even they, have thoroughly enjoyed Omar's! I highly recommend this wonderful restaurant!

Pros: declicious food, organic food, raw food

Cons: a little pricey

Rawtopia - Edit

This is my favorite place to eat raw foods. The atmosphere is intimate and quiet but it doesn't stop large groups from showing up and contributing to a liveliness that I prefer. Omar is very friendly and he truly makes his food with love. The coconut rice, pasta, and bean burrito are delicious and some of my favorites! Most importantly, it's local, live, and organic/sustainable food. Delicious!

Pros: Healthy eating, Organic foods, Supports local farmers

Pretty good - Edit

Pretty good raw food. All of it is pretty standard, though, and nothing too spectacular. Good desserts. Very expensive.

First experience with raw food - Edit

I noticed Rawtopia because it is next to a yoga studio that I go to occasionally. I'd never tried raw food but being a vegetarian for 10+ years I thought it sounded intriguing. The smell as you enter the restaurant is so amazing. I just smells... alive and clean and good. The food is pricey but always excellent. The service has never been anything less than perfect. I can't NOT go there after every yoga class.

Pros: Atmosphere, Food, Service

Cons: Expensive

i liked it - Edit

i love raw food. and living cuisine was pretty good. some friends and i went there and shared a couple entrees and a dessert. the pizza had the best sauce i've ever tasted. the falafel salad was good. the bean burrito was hefty and good. the chocolate fruit dessert was delicious. we all liked different things the best, so i think it is good for a variety of people's tastes. everything is Lebanese inspired, raw, and vegan.

a little pricey, but a good deal if two people share the two entree combo ($16-18). there is enough to feed two people on that.

the owner is almost always in there and is extra friendly.

Pros: vegan, friendly staff

super yummy! - Edit

The food was super awesomely yummy!! We had several people so ordered several things to share. Everything was really flavourful and delicately perfected. The spicy curry nori rolls were the best...we ordered an extra, with extra sauce.
Omar and his staff were very friendly and made our experience that much better.
I highly recommend this raw food joint if you are in Salt Lake city!!

Pros: Delicious food, Great selection, Friendly Staff

Great raw food and great people - Edit

My wife and I were passing through Salt Lake City, having just attended a raw foods expo in California, and we made it a point to drop in to sample their fare. Simply put, their food is fabulous. Also, it's always a treat to find friendly, helpful people and the owner and staff are all just great. We didn't know exactly where the street address would be, but it turned out to be easy enough to find. Their entrance is on the side of the building which is across the street from Whole Foods.

Omar Living Cuisine - Edit

My husband and I finally made it to Omar Living Cuisine and we were very pleased with our meals and the service. The staff was very friendly and the food was exceptional. The seasoning of the food was great. We were very satified and didn't feel stuffed. My husband and I really enjoyed our meal greatly. We will definitely be going back to Omar's again and again.

healthy food - Edit

The food is awesome, its delicous, the servings sizes are good (maybe a little to big), and it is all raw, you feel good after eating it. The people that work there are very nice and accomodating, the owner is one of the friendliest people i have ever met. The service is rather slow but it is just part of the atmosphere, you gotta love it. I sure do!

Cons: slow

Great Vibe, Tasty Food - Edit

I called them 10 minutes after they had already closed on a Tuesday night (hours were noon to 8pm) and they kindly offered to make me a to-go order that I could drive over and pick up. I was hoping for great raw food, and yet I received so much more. When I arrived, Omar (the owner) saw me and made it a point to chat with me. His intensity and energy are high, and the vibe in the place is very positive, I regret I didn't get there earlier so I could have eaten in. The falafel bowl was great, I can tell it was made with love, and the kiwi raspberry pie special was amazing. I felt great after eating. Meeting Omar inspired me to open myself up to more experiences and take more chances meeting people, so that perhaps I too can learn how to pass that kind of energy on to other people.
