“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

Visited this place based on a recommendation whilst on a business trip. Chimayo is a wonderfully quirky place, full of character and take my word for it, the food was outstanding. I tried the elk sugar cane skewer as a starter followed by an entree of buffalo steak; the quantity, quality and presentation were top notch and the taste was simply outstanding.

“5 years in a row - my favorite restaurant in Park City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

I go to Park City every year to ski. This is always a must eat at place. Make a reservation and go early. One of my criticisms is silly, but real - they have a variable combination of tables and booths that are un necessarily awkward. As such, be very very specific. Otherwise, it is torture for your lower back and shins. Everything about the restaurant is great (food, service, atmosphere). But, it is like they've never sat in their own chairs. Having said that, it is incumbent upon the diner to not be afraid to be very specific and be willing make them move you until you are all comfortable. Once seated, it is one of my favorite dining experiences of the year. The flavors on the menu are really brilliant and I think it is a fantastic kitchen.

“All time great meal at Chimayo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

We had two all time favorites at Chimayo: elk and spare ribs. Got some great advice from our waiter on an excellent wine to pair with the meal. Topped off the meal with a great chocolate fondue. Chimayo has become a family tradition each year at Park City.
