“Servers with an attitude AND overpriced”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

There are so many other nice restaurants to go to in PC for lunch for two if you don't want to pay $94.89 for four cheap drinks, a salad with canned pears and beets, and a small steak. On top of that dealing with Lee, the server, telling me that it was unacceptable to him for me to sit at the corner of the table instead of across from my date bc someone may come sit at the table next to us in a 20% full restaurant, was really simply astounding! The table and most of the other tables around us were never even used during our lunch. It's intriguing to me when the tail wags the dog. Does this server feel that we were there to serve him, rather than the other way around? Wow! SO NEVER going back there again! And you shouldn't either!

PCL0cal, General Manager at Bistro 412, responded to this review, March 8, 2013

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Lee was out of line, and he should have allowed you to sit where you wanted until we needed the space, if indeed that need even arose. I am sorry for his attitude. We will rectify the situation with him immediately. I called and spoke with the manager on duty about the situation. He was unaware that you were upset until after you had left and thus was unable to try to mend things before you were gone.

As for your review, I understand that you were dismayed and upset with the service. Your comment about "canned pears and beets" is untrue, however, as we bring in all our ingredients fresh and roast the beets and poach the pears in-house. We also do our best to keep prices reasonable for Park City, and I think we succeed in having one of the lowest mark-ups on food, liquor, and wine in town. That being said, the service you received from Lee ruined your experience with us and for that I apologize.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to mend our professional relationship with you. We care about our guests, and your satisfaction is my top priority.

“A Park City Gem at an Affordable Price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

A cozy, welcoming environment truly reminiscent of traditional bistros in Provence. The food was excellent and very well executed. Presentation was simple and efficient. The forest mushroom appetizer was a hit, although sinfully rich. The lamb shank was well prepared, well spiced and quite tasty. Our 18 year old son loved the cassoulet of rabbit & quail but the hit was the beef Bourguignonne, which was cooked "osso bucco" style. The chocolate mouse was exceptionally rich. Overall, a great night with wonderful food at affordable prices.

“Great food just gets better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

Getting to be a habit every time we visit Park City we eat at Bistro 412. The food was outstanding Escargot starter followed by fish cooked to perfection. The Chef sure knows what he is doing. Impressive wine list and attentive service completed our evening. Warm authentic atmosphere certainly makes this one of our favourites

“Cozy corner for a warming lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We had an excellent lunch sat Bistro 412 on the day we arrived in Park City. We were drawn in by the warmth of the outdoor fire pit and found an excellent dining experience. The restaurant itself was cozy and inviting. We nestled in at a table for two by the window and watched skiers tromp by in ski boots.

The steak frites had wonderfully garlicky frites paired with a melt-in-your-mouth steak and savory sauce. The quiche with salad was simple and delicious -- just what I was looking for that afternoon. This was our first time in Park City, but when we return, Bistro 412 will definitely be a stop on our list.
