Do not come to the area and leave this off your list. Outstanding on every level. Superior wines decanted at your table. Highest quality ingredients for delicious meals. Warm and attentive staff. You will not be disappointed.

If your not staying up canyon (Alta) and your looking for fine dining not in a hotel... well... this is it. Fun location, great place to wait out the red snake... they also do pizza togo.

It appears this place has new ownership. My wait was long, over 20 min for the food, and it was bad value for money, the main dish, duck, tasted like $ 20, but cost me 45. Won't go back.

This restaurant is a must visit if you are in Salt Lake City, and especially in Alta/Snowbird. It is a very unpretentious place with some of the best food and drink you will ever enjoy. Our family had the rabbit and rattlesnake cassoulet, the house made pasta, striped bass, pork shank and black cod, along with some great beer and wine. We could not agree on which was the best, but we agreed that ALL of it was fantastic!!!

Peri our waiter was great!! Enjoy!

Until we found the Shallow Shaft, we thought we were in the land of big snow and cooks but not chefs. The Shallow Shaft has a true chef, and every dish we tried from bison to pasta to cheese plate to veggies was delicious! Nicely balanced flavors, with fresh ingredients. Also notable was the warm friendliness and professionalism of all the staff. A lovely dinner place all around!
