    The food was very unique and the atmosphere was fun. The food took longer to get to our table than we expected. May have been because there was a large group in the bar upstairs. Overall it was a fun dining experience.

    I love Chimayo, having been here two other times on trips to Park City. It IS pricey, and especially for a group. I came with four other family members, and the price of food was steep. That said, the food was delicious -- top notch. From ceviche to vegetarian options, meat and fish options, we all loved our meals. Our waitstaff were attentive, but the kitchen was slow -- it took a long time between our appetizer and main course. I planned for this restaurant before we came as a special night out, and we were not disappointed.

    Took my two boys and their wives to a dinner to celebrate being together. We had the most enjoyable time, food was very good. I liked that it was unique but still not too unusual...just great ingredients done right. From the moment we walked in the door, we were all treated like royalty. Provided for a very memorable evening.

    Chimayo has amazing food. But unlike many high end "foodie" restaurants, Chimayo is not pretentious or snobby. It is down to earth and has a very warm and friendly atmosphere. I'm not a foodie and I'm not used to high-end southwestern cuisine. I wondered if it would be worth the high prices, would it be that much better than a good mexican or southwestern restaurant? The answers were yes and yes! I had the chicken with nachos and it was incredible. My wife had the halibut which was served with this delicious sauce. Don't fill up too much on the yummy bread, you need to save room for the amazing entrees. This place is not cheap so for my budget it is only for special occasions, but I can't wait to go back.

    Superb avocado salads - enjoyed very much. The halibut special had a lot of wonderful accompaniments, but the fish itself was without taste. order carefully in this very expensive restaurant (nice decor) in the heart of Main street Old Town.

    We'd seen Chimayo many times and it looked so charming, we decided to try it. It started OK- but when our waiter began to take our order, he was paged by the chef and said he had to attend to that page immediately. It was the chef's rule to drop everything and go to the kitchen when paged. OK. that was odd, but thought if the intent was to deliver the food immediately so it was hot, that's a good thing. I could not bring myself to order ahi tacos for $44 (TACOS!), or scallops for $48, so I got a salad and a small, appetizer eggplant burrito. It was cold- argh. Other dishes were good (fajitas, watermelon salad). There was a lot of tension between the staff, and yelling could be heard near the kitchen. Probably wouldn't go again.

    Chimayo was my favorite of the Bill White group, however my last meal was disappointing. The halibut was dry and tasteless, The veggies with it were salty and overcooked. My friend had the elk, with my recommendation, and it was tough. My preference has become more "farm to table" and I will gladly travel to SLC for Scott Evans' (Pago and Finca) fare!

    Satisfying choice to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. Great unique and cozy ambience with awesome decor, and we loved the booth for two. We came during a busy time and took a while to get approached by our server which was understandable. Menu was a bit more pricey than I expected, with the cheapest menu item being $36. I went with the nacho stuffed chicken breast which was beautifully and perfectly prepared, I don't know if quite worth $36 though. It is a place to get away to the southwest in your mind and great for a trip to park city for a special occasion. Will definitely return, perhaps for my girlfriend's next birthday (if she still likes me by then).

    We came to Chimayo for our honeymoon and we absolutely LOVED it! The staff was quick with refills and bread. Our waiter, Lee, was.incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and ingredients. I aske him the name of a sauce and he told me all of the ingredients. The assistant manager was very accommodating! She congratulated us several times and brought us a free dessert. The food was divine! I was very curious about the food at first, a southwestern mexican with french flair. I was blown away by the taste and presentation. I highly recommended the duck enchiladas and the ribs. Delicious!

    During the summer, the Bill White restaurants have special menus one day a week. For Chimayo, it's Thursday. We have eaten here many, many times and it is one of our favorites. However, the Thursday night specials were a letdown. Clearly not the same caliber of food as their normal menu. We did the similar special evening at another Bill White restaurant, Grappa, and it was excellent. So, eat at Chimayo, but stick to the normal menu. The ribs and trout are excellent.

    I've been here many times over the years. Maybe I expected too much as I was bringing a guest who'd never been here, but the prices were much higher than I remembered, the food was good--not great, and the noise level was very high. We ate at The Edge a couple of nights before, which is rated very high for steak houses and expensive, yet the food was less costly, much better, and the atmosphere quiet enough that we could talk without yelling.

    We don't eat a lot of meat but when we do we pick game or buffalo. We ordered the sugarcane elk appetizer. Outstandingly creative. We had two salads, beet arugula and stuffed avocado. Also excellent quality. We shared roasted veggie enchiladas. Chimayo spends a lot of time on presentation. Each plate is as much a piece of art as it is a culinary treat. Food portions are generous. Rustic ambiance and seating is unique. Booths are split with a wood panel topped with wrought iron. A couple sits side by side but I would not call it private. Server and support staff were very attentive and knowledgable. Like most of Utah the wine pour is stingy. Overall great dining experience but pricey, as you would expect in a resort town.
