    Server was very nice,attentive and personable. Food was mediocre at beast,and overall a let down. The chef loves olives as was pretty evident in both our dishes, I love olives but way over abundant. The over use of olives made the food very salty and masked any other seasonings. I would say we over paid for this mediocre meal.

    Our one and only disappointing meal of 6 days, 5 nights in Park City. Great location, fun atmosphere and thats about it. Bland lobster bisque with no lobster or lobster flavor. Beet salad was not bad but not great. A favorite in Utah for me is trout, not here, creamy sauce and the crust was just not good. Service, well, that didn't go well from the beginning. Had to get the hostess to get our server to even order a drink. Park City is wonderful and there are endless fabulous places to eat. We will not go back. Hopefully it was just an off night for them.

Only the risotto was good. They were out of the 3 different wines we wanted to try. Overall it is not worth it.

    We made reservations for six at 7 and were promptly sat. However, didn't see our server for 25 minutes! Finally flagged down another server to order drinks. Our server made it over about 15 minutes later. We asked if they were really busy or if someone was out.... He said "no" it was actually a slow night. I would hate to see how bad the service would've been if it was a busy night.

    We waited one hour after we were seated to get bread. Service was horrible. Others who came late were served before us. Got our entres before our starters. Gave us our starters to go. Soggy Caesar salad the next day really isn't great. The entres we're very good, but service was so bad we most probably won't go back.

    Owner and chef should look quickly into their business. This restaurant has potential but it seems that guests and previous good reviews are taken for granted. The entire experience - from service, to the level of cooking, to the interest in the guests were all way below standard and expectations.

    We were excited to try this relatively new addition to Main Street but, overall, we were generally unimpressed. The small main level dining area seems quaint and friendly, but we were seated upstairs with a very modest old-looking decor. The food was "O.K.," but nothing to rave about. However, and perhaps owing only to the restaurant's location, it seemed overpriced, both for what was served and the mediocre quality. One bright spot was the option to add a salmon, chicken, or shrimp to a nice house salad. The salmon portion was generous, the crumbled cheese, nuts, and cranberries were sparse. As another reviewer observed, and particularly in light of how expensive this restaurant is, there are better restaurant choices on Main Street.

    Ate at 501 Main for the first time and enjoyed our dinner very much. When we entered we thought that it might be noisy but we were seated upstairs in a very pleasant dining room with a good server. The lobster bisque was good and also the Caesar salad (and really big). The pot roast was good and the portion quite large. We would definitely go back.

    The food was extremely disappointing. The presentation was very nice, but it lacked taste. The Salmon was very fishy and dry. Their main dish was the Risotto. It had really no flavor. The wine was pricey, although the best part of the meal. Our server was below average. He came back to our table only to drop off the dessert menu. I would never go back or recommend this to other people.

One of our better dining experiences in PC.

    We have been coming to Park City for over 10 years and my wife is vegan so we were happy to see V focused restaurant come to Main Street and had high hopes after hearing reviews from our friends. The Risotto was very good however the Ratatouille which was prepared vegan surprisingly had the vegetables fried. In my mind if you are making a vegan dish it doesn't make sense to make the vegetables fried. I can't imagine most vegans eat their food fried. Other than that we would definitely go back and try some of the other dishes.

    The room is very cute, but between the noise of the music and the tv, talking can be an issue. We had 5 in our party and only one dish was excellent. The others were just ok, nothing special. Mostly because they needed seasoning. It seems that it is a new restaurant and they have a lot of bugs to work out. The order in which the food comes out with drinks was disorganized, we had to wait for everyone in our party to get served at the same time. The waiter seemed to be overwhelmed even though it was later and there were not that many people. I think the place has potential if they can get their act together, but I would not go back.

    Waiter "forgot" our appetizers, so after a long wait the entrees came. When we asked what happened we received a fair amount of attitude and "we can take them off your bill if that's what you want". What I wanted was an apology. When I explained to the manager that I didn't need her attitude, I received little response. Lots of good restaurants in Park City. Avoid 501 on Main.

    It's a shame the service was so bad, because the food was outstanding. When we sat down, they warned us that it may be a moment before the waiter came over because two large groups had come in before us. This turned out to mean that he blew us off all night. He even left in the middle of our drink order to bring another table's food out. Literally mid-sentence. Oh well.

    A cute little restaurant, though the decor isn't as nice as some of the other eateries on Main Street.

I don't know that I would go back again but I wouldn't have any issues if someone else suggested meeting there for a bite.

    We were a little mislead. The photo on their website shows a classy and elegant dining room with an additional casual dining room/bar downstairs. We were celebrating a very special event so we wanted to do it up a little. When we arrived we found that the upstairs dining is seasonal and was closed for the winter (it is Nov 9). Ummm, that would have been nice to know on their website. The food and service was good just not the atmosphere we desired for our special event. If we would have known we were eating with rock music blaring, boisterous laughter and converstaion from the kitchen, and a TV loudly displaying sports we would have chosen to go elsewhere. We do not live in Park City; we live an hour away.

    We enjoyed our dinner here. The food was good and the service was great. They were painting their dining room, so we had to sit in the bar. The atmosphere in the bar needs improvement, but the dining room might be nicer. I also thought the wine/ drinks were even more expensive than most restaurants on Main Street 2 simple cocktails and a bottle of wine ($15 at liquor store) cost $70.
