    Great halibut dinner. Scallops were also great. Server was like a robot. I think she was programmed by someone in the kitchen. She did everything perfect except no personality and no engagement with our party of four. I guess this is better than a server that talks too much but we were looking for a little more of a welcoming host type.

All the waiters were polite, outgoing, and took a few minutes to chat with us. THe entertainment was enjoyable. Overall a lovely evening.

    We have been to this restaurant several times and it is always very good. Good and friendly service along with great food. This summer I took 13 people to this restaurant. The service was excellent and everyone was pleased with their meal. This is the sign of a good restaurant when you can handle a group of this size. We will be back.

    Riverhorse has now become my favorite restaurant in Utah. I took my husband here for his birthday this past week and we were both first-time diners. EVERYTHING about the food and the service was amazing. From the chef's complimentary bites... to the bread with the herbed butter... to the heirloom tomato salad with fried goat cheese that we split... to the surf and turf my husband ordered and the crab and scallop entree I ordered... to the complimentary blueberry cobbler my husband chose for his birthday dessert. Everything was over the top fantastic and the service met that same level.

    Wow, what a great Chef! Food was amazing, exceptional selection of menu items. Halibut, wild game and foie gras were favorites at our table. The table next to us had some amazing looking steaks and ocean trout. Had a great experience, terrific server. We went on a Monday night, crowded, definitely "the spot". Can't want to go again!!

    We came to Park City for the first time to celebrate my birthday. I did research on the many wonderful restaurants in the area and picked Riverhorse. Talked to some locals who advised us to be prepared for an expensive evening. Yes it was, but it was TOTALLY worth it! Riverhorse had a wonderful atmosphere, complete with a fantastic singer/guitar player for background music. The service was superior! Our entrees were absolutely amazing! I had the macadamia nut encrusted halibut. I will forever crave that dish. Loved it with the mashed potatoes and broccolini! My husband had the scallops and crab! Delicious! The evening was absolutely perfect! I highly recommend Riverhorse!

    We've been going to Riverhorse for at least 25 years and it has always been one of the best 2 or 3 restaurants in Park City. It seems to be constantly upgrading itself. Since our last visit there has been a significant remodel of the original part of the restaurant, changing it from a rather large, not especially attractive room to a smaller and much more comfortable space, in addition to adding a bar area and completely moving the kitchen. The newer (relatively) part has not changed much, bit didn' y have to. Food has remained as excEllent as ever; rather simple dishes done very well. Often moderately embellished classicreparation, but never outrageous or puzzling. Pretty much a "must go"in Park City.

    I've lived in Park City for several years but never taken an opportunity to eat at the River Horse so this was my first experience. Both of our beef filets were ordered medium rare, but arrived between medium and well done. My friend was having such a good time I didn't raise the issue with the server and found the filet to be respectable if only because it was of good quality. It was only after that she mentioned that her filet was not prepared properly either. The limited menu that evening consisted of one fish dish (halibut) and various red meats with potatoes. Life is too short to drop $200 on dinner and be disappointed.

    Park City is beautiful. That's a given. Sitting on the balcony are Riverhorse made the evening perfect. Our waiter, Tyler, was so attentive and a always ready whenever we needed him. Absolutely no complaints about the food. I ordered the Halibut with Macadamia nuts; it was so tender and the flavor was to die for. The atmosphere is great. I love how the restaurant is decorated. We had a live singer who was really good and the music choice was perfect for the evening. We could sing along, which made the evening light-hearted and warm.

    We were a large boisterous group of 7 and we enjoy our food/wine/and a good time (meaning: we can get loud). The restaurant does it right by keeping large groups in a section away from other diners to avoid disturbing romantic dinners and smaller groups. Service was spot-on and the food was really good! Not a big fan of wild game, but the Trio of Elk, Venison and Buffalo was THE best I've ever had. I generally steer away from game meat because of the potential game-y taste, but there wasn't a hint of it (farm-raised). Fried chicken is good, but I prefer it traditional (they smoke theirs), and the macadamia nut crusted halibut was excellent! Will definitely make Riverhorse a go-to dining spot everytime we visit Park City.

    The Riverhorse on Main had a fabulous menu including appetizers. We loved the food that was prepared with care and presentation was excellent as well. The service was outstanding, from the moment we stepped into the restaurant, a waiter helped my somewhat invalid wife up the stairs, and when she took a little too long in the restroom, asked me if he could ask one of the female staff to check on her. And he wasn't even our waiter. I had the rack of lamb in a cherry sauce, cooked to perfection. My wife had the halibut, which she said was also delicious. We didn't try their deserts. The only negative was that it was a very noisy environment.

    We had very special guests with us from New York. I had made reservations 3 weeks in advance and confirmed the day of the reserv. To our surprise there was a wedding taking place in the restaurant. They sat us in a very poor location by the kitchen, we could not even here ourselves to talk. Very Very disappointing. Many opportunies to inform us. Poor management organization. Weddings should be scheduled Mon-Thurs not Friday eve.

    We have come here for dinner several times because the food is very good and the service is even better. Like so many restaurants today though the place is noisy with high ceilings and no attempt to dampen the sounds. On this particular night there was a piano player/vocalist who added to the noise level. Just the piano would have been OK but the amplified sound of her less than appealing voice became an unwelcome distraction to dinner for all four of us. We will definitely check ahead about the entertainment before we come again.

    Recommended by SLC native as the best restaurant in Park City; we couldn't agree more! Everyone recommended the signature halibut, so we ordered and were happy we did. Salad of roasted beets, arugula, pancetta & lemon panacotta was truly a stroke of genius. The halibut was cooked to perfection and surrounded by a delightful citrus gastric with dollops of mango and mint puree. Only let down was Death by Chocolate dessert which consisted of 5 variants on the theme; "Truffles" were a warm, undercooked doughy, unappetizing odd mess that I had to spit out; white chocolate-pistachio bark had no flavor; the chocolate shake was warm, but ice cream & flourless torte were true chocolate decadence. Reserve seat on balcony for great view & service.

    Ate here for the second time this weekend and can't say we will go back. The oysters and duck confit were good although the latter was more like fried chicken. Our mains lacked flavor and seasoning, the fried chicken and halibut respectively. Service was very good...thank you Colin. To cap the night off we had a woman nursing her baby in full view (ie no attempt at discretion) across from us. While generally we have no issue with this it's not what I want to see during a nice meal...especially at 8pm on a Saturday night.
