    Talisker on Main is my favorite restaurant in Park City. The service, drinks/wine list, and cuisine is exceptional. The décor is very conducive to a romantic evening or celebration. My husband and I enjoyed a delicious dinner that was creative & light yet full of flavor. Their menu offers delicious options for vegetarians (like me) to meat lovers (my husband). I am from New Orleans and used to very fine cuisine and highly recommend dining at Talisker on Main.

    For my husbands 40th Birthday I booked a table for five. It was an early Tuesday night (6:30) so there were options. We chose to sit outside. There was a lovely fountain in the center of the patio and a fire at one end with lounge seating. Our table was near enough to the fire that we were kept warm and cozy (not too hot or cold). The setting was perfect for our small group. The food was delightful. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

    Just before Labor Day weekend, we were easily able to get a beautiful table with banquette for 4. Tiffany was responsible for describing all of the foods and wines. Too bad they can't clone her! The only slight negative was a 30 minute wait to receive the first round of descriptions and our drinks. With only 4 tables occupied that night, our wait was minor but could have set a bad tone if all else wasn't so amazing! Delicious mushroom salad! Entrees, the pork chop, lamb dish, trout, risotto were all amazing. Great flavors and perfectly described in the menu and by Tiffany. The goats milk cheese cake with figs is a must try! Cannot wait to get back to Utah with a stop at Taliskers.

  • Good but not great
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 8/29/2013
    I eat at a lot of fine restaurants around the country. This restaurant is always hiped to be a great one in Park City. I have a vacation home here and finally decided to venture from my favorites (Riverhorse, Grappa, 360 Main) to try this one. I had the braised short rib which was extremely dry but did at least have good flavor. Unfortunately, it was too dry to eat more than a bite or two. The rest of the food was quite good, but not fantastic. I have had so many fantastic meals, that choosing to only have good was disappointing. For the price and the ambiance, I would rather go to one of my favorites which are consistantly great, than to have only very good.

    We had a party of 8 for my husbands birthday. The menu was interesting, as usual, and never disappointing. Try the lamb duo and the biscuits! Our service was prompt for a larger party. We always rely on Talisker on Main when we are in town and have guests to impress. We forgot the birthday dessert but will ask next time!

    What a great experience. We had tried several times to get a reservation at Talisker on Main, but the restaurant had been booked. It was worth the wait! The food was fabulous and I don't say that lightly. The servers were attentive. Each course was a revelation. The summer menu items were light and flavorful, the pairings were creative and satisfying. If you have the chance, don't miss Talisker's on Main.

    Excellent meal & service. Lobster beignets were a fun, delicious appetizer. The pork rib chop was good, not great. The Utah trout was very nice, but the spices in the broth nearly overpowered the trout. The wines seem to be very competitively priced. Nevertheless, we enjoyed this dining experience, most likely due to the superb service provided by Tiffany!

    Fantastic food. Server forgot one dish. Disappeared after serving what she remembered. Sat with empty plates on table for 20 mins. Had to ask someone else to get out check for us. Finally, when waitress returned, she gave us attitude when we pointer out that the service was bad and she had forgotten one dish we ordered.

    This restaurant has the feel of dining in New Orleans, in the French Quarter. The atmosphere was great and it had a good vibe. The service was great from the host to our server. They have a great wine list. The chefs ability to merge different flavors was pretty amazing. The food was spectacular. Desert was the low point for me, not that there weren't some great sounding deserts, they just didn't have what I was looking for. The cost of dinner is pretty standard for Park City. Is it worth it? I would say YES if you enjoy great food, prepared by great chefs. Overall experience I would give it and "A". I will go there again and again. I will bring more guests with me next time.

    We had the lamb and short rib. My husband would have been happier with 2 nicely prepared chops that the chop and lamb meat loaf- the loaf was dry and over seasoned. My short ribs were a bit tough- when I order them I expect them to melt in my mouth.

    My husband and I dined at Talisker on Main last year for a combined birthday/anniversary dinner. We loved everything about it. The food portions were small but amazingly flavorful. The service was impeccable and we loved watching the chefs prepare our meals. Although my husband joked that he left hungry, when it came time for our celebration this year Talisker was his immediate choice. We were greeted by no one. Eventually a waiter came over and seated us. We had a drink and ordered wine with dinner but had to remind them 3 times before we got our wine. The Lobster Beignets appetizer was very good and my husband's pea soup was good. My short rib was dry and flavorless. My husband said the fried chicken at "The Market" was better.

    Not sure if the staff and chef are different in the Winter - but our Summer dinner there was just ok compared to our amazing dinner there in Winter. The ambiance is my favorite - can't beat it! Our wait staff was just ok - a little spacey and not as attentive as usual. Maybe just an off night for Talisker.

    I wish I could be more raving, but it was just middle of the road. Maybe eating out 75% of all my meals has created a higher expectation, but for a place that claims to have won best restaurant 3 years in a row, it was just middle of the road. The table next to us had the same comments. Seating was fabulous. Big comfy chairs.

    Very creative menu. Excellent flavors and presentation. Enjoyed watching kitchen prepare dishes in near silence. Great service and wine recommendations. Best meal in Park City for both style and substance ( although sandwiches at Back Door Deli were awesome). Dining room a little cramped but it did not adversely affect the experience. Tried pork belly, risotto, soup, veal, lamb and all three desserts. All excellent. Similar price points to Mariposa and the Farm, but enjoyed it a little more.

    Seating in the main dining room is cramped and the noise level high, so if you are looking for a special occasion/romantic dinner where you are not sharing conversations with your neighbor you should certainly specify. Menu is creative, service attentive but bordering on slow. When my steak came out well done instead of medium rare (as I order and the chef recommends), I sent it back and ended up watching everyone else eat for a good 5-10 minutes while another was grilled and plated. There is no way they did not know that meat was well done when it was coming out of the kitchen, but I guess that is on the diner to make sure orders are met. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Certainly a "must try", not necessarily a "must repeat".

    We have previously enjoyed dining at Talisker. However, this time, we were seated in the main dining room, which was very noisy. The service was pretentious but not particularly knowledgeable. The menu is complex, but not in a way that comes together in an impressive final product. Perhaps they are having some growing pains but we will give it a pass for a year or two at least.
