The Bison steak was out of this world so much better than filet lighter not gamey. The Caesar salad was delicious with perfect amount of clean tart dressing. The menu is unique and I took a pause when reading it. But every time I go there no matter what i choose it's delicious, healthy with freshest ingredients.
The service is happy and impeccable and the is ambiance rustic funky mountain. Warm, friendly, top notch. This is the best restaurant in the Snowbird/Alta area.
Only down side is that parking is on the road and sometimes takes a few minutes. If you are in Snowbird you can get someone from the hotels to drop you off and pick you up.

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!
