    Staying at the Waldorf Astoria, we decided to try Powder for dinner. It was very quiet on this particular Monday evening. We were the only table indoors (there was one outdoors) so that was a bit weird. However, the dinner and service was excellent. Our server, Laura was outstanding. For being the only table, she was not overbearing, however was attentive. The food was delicious.

    We were so disappointed by this restaurant. Reservation read " celebrating our 32 anniversary. A quiet table with a view would be nice". And...we were staying at the hotel. A 20 bottle of wine was $75. Service was unattentive due a large party of 20. Lettuce in Caesar salad wasn't fresh and the couldn't be bothered to split it for us. No acknowledgement of our anniversary. Food was nothing special.

    This restaurant doesn't know where it's headed. On the one hand it wants to be luxurious, on the other a family hotel dining room. It ends up in the middle of nowhere. Nice look to the room, okay menu, good service - if overly formal. But the result is a completely unmemorable evening at a high price. Not likely to bring us back.

    The menu was excellent, many options. However, the execution left some to be desired. The butcher block appetizer had smoked and/or cured meats that were delicious. My wife had the Wagyu steak and it was excellent, my NY strip was much better the second time through. The first attempt wasn't cooked evenly, burnt on one end and cold on the other. The second try was much better.

    The food was awesome, when it was done right. Salad was served wrong twice. Took 10 minutes to remake, but when it was done right it was incredible. steak was med well on one side, rare on the other.. but when it was redone, it was incredible. Service was REALLy bad.. ordered a bottle of sparkling Water, which they refilled with tap at the end of our meal.. someone else must have drank it. Wine was overpriced… Here is the thing, when they got it right it was a 10 out of 10.. consistently was were they suffered...

    We were a group of 6 who ordered 5 different entrees, all generously proportioned. Butternut squash soup was tasty but too rich for our tastes; Caesar salads were too peppery. Trout was deemed very good; pasta was fair (was described as with roasted tomatoes (served with 2 grape tomatoes) and Brussels sprouts (served with 2 )and butternut squash (a half-dozen miniature cubes)); scallops were fair, salmon was good but not prepared as described & wait staff insisted it was. Wine menu extensive but extremely overpriced. Beautiful décor. I am a local but would not recommend this restaurant.

    We booked a table online for Powder during Sundance. When we arrived, they had a private party in the restaurant and had us leave the hotel through the spa and walk around to the back of the hotel and eat in a repurposed hotel room. Food was not good, scallops white with no sear. They brought out our veggy sides right away, before the drinks even arrived. Clearly they should have said that the restaurant was booked.

    If you are looking for a nice meal at the Canyons you now have a choice. This is the Hotel's restaurant so you see things you do not expect like kids running back and forth. We were also seated just beyond the bar for an early dinner so Apres ski was gping on. I would request a table in the back next time. The food was excellent but menu choices were limited. It seems that many Park City fine dining places offer many of the same items over and over. The sampled wines were good. One big fail a server spilled half my glass of wine delivering my food. He apologized and another glass was delivered. When the bill comes i am charged for it. They never said they were giving the other glass for free but i did not order it either.

    Christmas Day Dinner was not what we expected it to be at Powder, a real let down. Kitchen was struggling to keep up with a partially filled dinning room even with a pre-set menu. Friendly staff was about the only upside. Long wait times for / between courses (and a hefty price tab) left us local Park City folks turned off from wanting to return to Powder.

    My family and I were disappointed. We had lunch on Christmas day. The food was nothing special. I expect something special on Christmas day. The waitress was not friendly, and she brought our check before we had been served and did not care much when we explained that we had not eaten yet. She was not at all attentive to what we wanted or needed. The other wait staff did a better job, but not overly attentive. My son was drinking soda, and it was empty most of the lunch but no one seemed to notice and refill the glass. We did not feel welcome. I only had water in front of me because I wanted to order my drink later in the meal, no one asked me if I wanted anything else. I finally asked for a $19 glass of house wine that disappointmented.

    I just love this place. The Chef has come up with a new great winter menu. There are both dining and bar menus and both are fantastic! I often order an appetizer from the Bar Menu and then an entree. The Dijon Honey Wings to die for. Tonight, I had the Scallops and thought they were excellent. This is a place in ParK City where you can go for a special dining experience that in my humble opinion is better than any other place in town. The ambiance makes it great for both a special occasion, romantic dinner or just getting together with friends. Given its at the Canyons Area, one can avoid down-town and there is free parking as well.

    At a 5 star hotel, you expect great service and great food. Unfortunately, our experience at Slopes only gave us one of those. Even though we were only one of two tables in the restaurant, it took them 20 minutes to get our cocktails to us. From that point the service continued to be slow and frustrating. At breakfast the next morning, we experienced the same slow, unresponsive, frustrating level of service. We sat at our table for 15 minutes before anyone took our breakfast order. Even though our order was very simple, and should have been fast and easy to prepare, it took another 20 minutes for us to get our food. And, when our food finally did come out, it was taken to the wrong table on the completely opposite side of the restaurant?!

    We really enjoyed the Slopes. My wife and I ate there for our 13th anniversary. We were the only ones dining for about 30 minutes, although there was a private party in the bar area, which was slightly loud, but not bad. Our server was great - Ian was very attentive and had some great recommendations for us. We started with the cheese plate. This was the only reason for taking off one star - I have a goat cheese allergy; I informed our server of this, but I still ended up with a little reaction. I had the Game Hen Wellington and my wife had the Steelhead Trout. Both were excellent. We also had the Strawberries Mille Feuille. The Mille Feuille wasn't what we expected either (normally a light, layered pastry), but was still good.

    Their outside dining looks onto a partial pool yard and construction site. There are no mountain or trees to view. No one seemed to know who was waiting on us. We waited 20 minutes to get drinks. Two Roto Rooter trucks showed up in ear shot and started working during prime diner hour. Disappointing and not worth the drive from SLC.

    What is not to like at the Waldorf Astoria? From the moment you walk into the restaurant it feels special. I started off with the Goat Crunch salad and my mind was blown. Crisp green apples, fresh arugula, savory bacon, and creamy goat cheese all blend together to start the meal off right. The main course was flat iron steak with frites. Incredible from the first bite! We were the only other table in the restaurant, so the service was very attentive. Our waitress was funny and always made sure the glasses were full. She also made recommendations and made sure the food was delicious.The manager checked in twice and thanked us for coming in. The ambience, views, and the food made this trip worth it. I would recommend Slopes to anyone.

    While the food was excellent, the service was poor. Our appetizers arrived in a few minutes, but it took an hour for our main courses to arrive. The manager came to apologize and offered us free dessert, which was nice. There was a large private function ( outing/ convention) that the staff was paying its attention to. By the way, the main part of the restaurant was less than half-filled. Our server was very lovely- it was the kitchen's fault, not hers. The dining room is extremely warm and beautiful- decoded with chocolate brown velvet curtains and glass-framed large mirrors. Lastly- it was the first night of Passover and the hotel/ restaurant did not have any matzoh. Shocking for a 5-star hotel chin. Even Walmart in Park City ha

    The food was very good, the service was poor. Our server was quite nice but utterly incompetent. There is an extensive wine list, but no one knowledgeable on staff to help with all the French wines. The wine we were served was the wrong year from what was listed on the menu and a dessert wine, but not listed as such, nor did our server give us a heads up. The manager seemed very competent and kind and said he would comp the wine and give us dessert, but when the bill came, the wine was still there, and the server said her manager had told her to leave it on. When you eat at a restaurant in a high quality hotel, you expect high quality service that goes the extra mile. Unfortunately, while the food is a hit, Slopes did not deliver.

    Terrible service on this visit unfortunately. We were sat at our table for 30 mins with only water and had to ask twice for the wine list in that time before we were served. It seemed very under staffed. We also had to ask twice for extra bread which eventually materialised after the dinner was finished. Quite unimpressed with the service. Great atmosphere and food however which was the saving grace. I think however this is the worst of the Talisker offerings in Park City and I would rather go to the Farm or Talisker on Main for much better service etc.
