My wife's birthday. I had the seared tuna app. The wasabi was so old and hard I was able to pick it up and hand it to the waitress. She said she would have the manager come over. The manager never came and no new wasabi or anything else was offered. The steak was full of gristle as well. The... More

We stopped here for dinner on a Friday night, and had a short wait to be seated. The staff was very attentive, they all seemed to enjoy what they were doing. The food was good, as was the atmosphere. This is a good solid restaurant that we would return to when we're in the area again.

Nice upscale though not over-priced place to escape fro Mall shopping. Good bar so guys can drop-off their significant others and have a brewskis while the credit card gets decimated in the Mall. Recently introduced Fish and Chips (my favorite lunch-time meal no matter where I am). It was very good - though not exceptional. My wife had an Apple... More

The service here was one of the best we have ever had in any restaurant. It seemed that they worked as a team since several people checked on us. I would rate it as 6 stars for service. The food was OK. I ordered a steak medium rare and it was closer to well done. It gets 4 stars for... More

Try the wings....food was very good however the kids meal are not typical kids meals. Adults had wings extra crispy and they were sweet and spicy as the menu stated. Adult entrees were rib/chik finger combos (ribs better than the chicken fingers by far) and a fish taco meal. The tiny shoe fries are difficult to eat. They need to... More

The restaurant is gorgeous, it is much more than it looks from the outside. It is located along a section of the Park City Mall, so when you walk inside and see the dark wood, and stone interior - it really surprises you.

I was traveling on business and decided to try this place after reading the reviews. I chose to sit at the bar for dinner and had very attentive service. I had the salmon, potatoes and green bean almonds for dinner and everything was very tasty. The complimentary warm bread was a nice touch while I was waiting for dinner. I... More
